We had a great stay at Casa Calypso. It was 2 couples and we were very comfortable as it was a large space. The unit has 3.5 baths, so its really nice having the extra bathrooms. The beds were super comfortable. Great view, awesome balcony, quiet, fast wifi, really nice staff that works at the gate. We would walk over to the gate in less than a minute to call for a cab, and the cab would come in 2 minutes. This is a great location to get around in the area because everything is close(grocery store, restaurants--the main place to find a ton of restaurants is at Crucecita which is a 5 min cab ride). We also found a couple of beaches nearby that we would just cab it to(there aren't any beaches that you can just walk out to in 5 minutes, which is fine because cabs are so cheap). This is especially a great spot if you're in Huatulco for the first time since its centrally located. Overall we were very happy.
The listing description was as advertised, as were the photos, although no photo can truly describe the fantastic view of the harbor and village of Santa Cruz, as you will experience in person. The condo is very nicely appointed and equipped with the extras of free WIFI and SKY TV. Bottled jugs of water are very easily acquired although we found it safe to drink the tap water too. We found the condo to be very clean and while we added in extra weekly cleaning service the unit is very easy to maintain with it's marbled floors and counters throughout. The owner was beyond helpful in answering questions before and during our stay and has remained easily in contact after our departure. He ensured any and all minor problems and questions we encountered were addressed as quick as possible. The maintenance staff at the condo complex were a treat to deal with and very friendly as we worked with them through our very limited Spanish language ability. This is a property you would highly recommend to others as well as encouraging experiencing the numerous unique higher end restaurants right down to the taco stand in the back of the Gremlin car in Santa Cruz. Make sure you take the opportunity to travel outside of the immediate Huatulco areas and explore the numerous little beaches and hamlets along the coast in either direction to fully appreciate the scenery and beaches, beyond great weather, culinary opportunities, the people and their culture, for a true Huatulco experience. As a traveler you can tailor your visit to the area anywhere from a total relaxation in the sun experience, to a working holiday of exploration or anywhere in between, in this broad area of Huatulco. After a full day at any one of the beaches along the coast line, the condo is very relaxing to come home to and take-in a relaxed swim in its pool and/or happy hours on the deck watching the sunset.
Our Stay at Casa Calypso, was just as we expected...OUTSTANDING ...We lived on the balcony morning noon and night, if there had been a bed on it i probably would have slept on it. We enjoyed the many restaurants in the area, but our favourite dinners were on the balcon. We walked into... Crusesita in the morning for our daily walk and purchased all our fresh vegetables, then stopping in at the fish/meat market on the return, and of course a few bottles of wine, made for some DELICIOUS dinners. ( it helped that both husbands love to cook )and a new BBQ, made it easy. We were 2 couples and found the condo very spacious, with enough room for everyone's privacy and quiet time.
Our day trip to Puerto Escondido was excellent, Armando was a safe driver and went out of his way, to show us sites along the way that were not on the main highway....we stopped for a snack and a drink at a beach hut on a beach that went on forever and only one person sitting reading ....this is were i had fresh oysters, just brought in by the ladys husband.....fresh from the sea, It just dosent get any better than that....We also did a day trip by boat into all the little bays that that make up Huatulco, There are many beaches to discover and very accessible by taxi, We didnt rent a car and surprisingly didnt miss it, taxis are inexpensive and otherwise we walked, for our health. We felt safe everywhere we went in Huatulco...... All in all we had a very Relaxing, Enjoyable Vacation, which will definately be repeated.
Property Description: Casa Calypso with Ocean View 3 Bdr/3.5 Baths Comment Date: 01/04/2010 Comment Text: My family (2 granddaughters, daughter and son in law) stayed in Casa Calypso 12/27/09 through 1/3/10 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is well appointed, comfortable and has everything you need, from a cooler to a very well equiped kitchen. Everything is new and ver well kept. The local rental manager is knowledable and very helpful. We plan on returning again for our traditional stay in 2010 - 2011.
The condo is very comfortable, in excellent condition, well furnished. It offers nice view as it is overlooking Santa Cruz Huatulco and each room is facing the ocean. The terrace is large enough and a perfect place for diner, watch the sunset or relax. The condo is located on the second floor, but as it is built on a hill, you’ll have your car parked at the same level which is very convenient and makes you feel as if living in a private home. There are 2 beaches nearby, the closest, bahia Chahue being quiet. Foodstore is also close. For a long stay I would however recommend to rent a car, as we did. The American owner of the condo is extremely reliable and helpful. Communication is fast and efficient. El departamento, amueblado con buen gusto y en estado perfecto tiene todo lo necesario. El mantenimiento de las áreas comunes, jardines, alberca esta bien manejado. Uno de los espacios más acogedores de la vivienda es la terraza con vistas a Santa Cruz Huatulco y el mar. Las 3 recamaras, cada una tiene baño con lavabo, regadera, WC pero sin tina, disfrutan también de vista al mar. Siendo construido el edificio sobre una ladera, el departamento ubicado en el segundo piso esta al mismo nivel que el aparcamiento lo que es conveniente. Conviene no olvidar que el cerro domina una zona turística con restaurantes y discotecas y que suben los ruidos de día y de noche... El dueño Estadounidense de la vivienda es de total confianza. Para una larga estancia, sugeriría arrendar un carro. Las bonitas playas se ubican a 45 minutos Este y Oeste. Las de Huatulco, que pueden estar atiborradas, no son nada del otro mundo.L’appartement est en bon état et meublé avec gout. La maintenance des parties communes du jardin et de la piscine est au dessus de toute critique. Le logement dispose d’une terrace agréable avec vue splendide sur Santa Cruz Huatulco et la mer. Chaque chambre, avec aussi très belle vue sur la mer, dispose d’une salle d’eau avec WC. L’appartement est construit à flanc de colline, et bien qu’au second et dernier étage, le parking est au même niveau, ce que nous avons trouvé pratique. Il faut prendre en compte que la colline domine une zone très touristique avec restaurant et discothèque et que les bruits montent de jour et surtout de nuit. Le propriétaire est de confiance totale. Une voiture de location nous parait indispensable, les belles plages sont à 45 minutes Est et Ouest. Celle de Huatulco, bof…
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Calypso.The views from the patio are wonderful and we spent much of our time there eating breakfasts and dinners and enjoying afternoon breezes.All bedrooms have excellent views and the condo is well equipped.We would not hesitate to return.
