About Brian Fragassi

My name is Brian Fragassi. My wife Julie and I have Irish Twins- a boy and a girl, plus two rescued dogs- Curley (Chocolate Lab) and Travis (Mix). We live on the demarcation line between suburban and rural Illinois- well outside of Chicago. We have been involved in real estate on and off since the late 1990's. Julie enjoys management and oversight of many things (including me) and I enjoy all things construction and real estate. This Calypso Condo is our first venture into vacation real estate called CalypsoDirect. Now we have a little bit of heaven to share with everyone else!

Wonderful unit and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a baseball tournament and stayed at Calypso 1505E. From the get-go, the owners couldn't have been nicer or more responsive. We had all the info we needed, well in advance of our arrival, and everything was perfect when we checked-in. The unit was lovely, and Calypso is a fabulous location. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this unit. Thanks for a great week!

Great condo! Beautiful ocean view!

  • 4 of 5

Loved this condo! My only complaint was the cleaning staff didn't do a very good job before our check in. Floor wasn't swept or vacuumed and not washed. I also had to wipe down the refrigerator handle and where the ice dispenses. Despite these things loved the location and comfort. I would rent again!

Owner's Response: Lisa, I am very happy you enjoyed your stay at our condo at Calypso. I am sorry the unit wasn't as clean as we all would want it to be for your stay. All I can wish for is that if for some reason the room isn't right in the future- please let us know so we can have a chance to get the cleaners back in so they can get it right. I am happy otherwise you enjoyed your stay at Calypso! Thanks, Brian

RELAXING

  • 4 of 5

VERY NICE PLACE LOVED EVERYTHING EXCEPT NO TELEPHONE LANDLINES SO BE CAREFUL IF YOU BREAK OR LOSE YOUR CELL PHONE IT CAN BE A HUGE DISASTER HASSLE!!! ALSO BEWARE OF STAYING IN OPPOSITE EAST AND WEST TOWERS IF TRAVELING WITH A GROUP OR FAMILY THIS CAN BE A HASSLE AS WELL. OTHER THAN THAT I WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST THE CALYPSO TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Owner's Response: Tim, Like we discussed, I am really sorry your phone got wet and broke. I do make it clear in my advertisements and agreements that we do not offer a land line phone service. We would love to have you back when you can make it down again- Thank you! Brian Fragassi

very nice

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and had everything we needed. Salt & pepper shakers were empty and kitchen knives a bit dull, both minor inconveniences. There was a musty smell when you first entered the condo. Maybe it had been vacant for a bit. I loved the floor plan, the furnishings and would stay there again sometime.

Owner's Response: Dennis, I wish everything had been just perfect for your stay. I strive for 5 stars each review. I would encourage anyone reading this to send us a message if anything is lacking so we can address it immediately. These are all easy fixes and I am sorry I did not get a chance to make it a 5 star stay for you. We would love to have you back so keep us in mind for your next visit!

Calypso Resort and Towers is less than a block from Pier Park- offering some of the area's best food, drink, and amusement- as well as live music. That said- driving isn't discouraged as there are plenty of places to visit along the Gulf Coast- so either with or without car works fine.
