About Nancy Leonard

Hello and Welcome! I am Nancy Leonard, co-owner of Calypso Cabana. Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, I was a very frequent visitor to the beaches in Gulf Shores. University of South Alabama is where I received a degree in Accounting and Finance.

It is an honor to continually update and maintain this home of comfort, beauty and happy times. My hope is to provide a home for each guest to experience a fun and memorable vacation!

I currently live on Pleasure Island in Orange Beach. Kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and walking along the Gulf beaches is my way of life! I feel honored and privileged to share the island style of life with my guests!

Nancy Leonard purchased this house in 1993

Why Nancy Leonard chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Looking for a private beach, away from the crowds and high rises, I purchased this lot in the exclusive Callaway Subdivision in 1993. Being only 4 miles from town, I was excited to have a private retreat on West Beach! Garcia Construction custom built Calypso Cabana in 1997. The floor plan was custom designed by me to include large open rooms. With the help of friends, I continue to upgrade the custom decor of the home.

What makes this house unique

The Aquamarine and Turquoise Blue Waters of the Gulf!

I live locally and am available to my guests at all times. Calypso is being constantly updated. I personally oversee the cleaning and maintenance. This is a very clean and well maintained home!

Best Place We Ever Stayed

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were there Sept. 17th thru 24th. There was nothing I could have complained about EXCEPT for having to leave when our vacation was over. There was ample room in the house. No fighting over who got the master bedroom because there was 3 of them!!The deck was wonderful. Just a skip and a hop and your on the beach. The kitchen had all the utensils , pots and pans and everything u needed to cook. The stand alone ice maker saved us a lot of money not having to buy ice. Nancy was great to work with. My group called her the "hostess with the mostest! She told us if we needed anything to let her know. We didnt have to.. the house had everything. This has got to be the cleanest house or condo we have ever stayed in.Beds slept better than what I have at home. This house has tender loving care put into it. Dont think my group can stay anywhere else after staying here. Thank you Nancy!! The Francis Family from Kentucky

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three daughters, their husbands and children were in this great home for week. The house is perfect for four families with each getting their own room and bathroom. Plus, a room with twin beds for the kids. The large kitchen was great for preparing breakfast and a big shrimp boil one night! Loved the open-ness of the downstairs living room, dining room and kitchen. The views from the deck were perfect and we enjoyed morning coffee and evening cocktails out there. We also really loved being able to walk to the beach right behind the house. The kids loved playing in the sand and just being on the beach. Our small papillion had blast, too, chasing birds and crabs. He became the total beach dog. I would highly recommend this large, comfortable home for a family vacation.

Wonderful beach house and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family get together with seven adults and five children. The house accommodated everyone very comfortably. All the amenities were first class. We had very easy beach access with plenty of space as we were not close to any high rise condos. The location was very convenient to the grocery stores, restaurants, and the other Gulf Shores attractions. The week passed much too quickly. We would definitely return again.

Great house!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Gulf Shores. This house has everything you need. A great location, easy beach access, fully stocked kitchen and even beach chairs with sand toys. I enjoyed the hammock most mornings. The ice machine was awesome! It was my grand daughter and son-in-law's first beach vacation and this house helped make it a wonderful first time experience.
