Welcome to Calypso 305 West located on the THIRD FLOOR, so if you prefer a lower floor condo, this is the place for you. The third floor location is an enormous benefit over other floors because, from the parking garage, you don't have to ride an elevator to get to your condo. AND, if there are elevator waits in the summer, you can walk down the stairs to the ground floor where the beach is. This floor is the best because it is high enough to offer privacy but low enough to feel safe!
If you're the kind of person that likes to stay in the most popular resort on the beach, the Calypso is perfect for you. This place is awesome, beautiful and right across the street from Pier Park. There are two amazing pools right on the gulf and the decor will make you want to abandon your home and move in full time. Of course, the fact that it's literally right across the street from Pier Park is a huge plus. Just think – all that dining, shopping and entertainment just a short walk away!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo on Panama City Beach.
Property was exactly as described on VRBO.
Very nice and clean. Great views!!
Great 3rd floor condo with a perfect location
I read all the reviews before. I always pick a place based on the reviews. That being said:
The condo is large. Good size kitchen, VERY comfy couch- large enough for two of us to stretch out on. Many pillows. The bedroom is large with a nice dresser and two night stands. It has an amazing view of the gulf with a door leading to the balcony. Apparently not all the condos have this. Enter the bathroom with a large soaking tub, glass door shower (big enough for two ;)) and a separate stall with a toliet. Double sink vanity with great lighting. Then in the back, is a LARGE closet with a luggage rack. There is also a fan in the master and living room that provided very good circulation. We were able to keep the temp around 76.
There were reviews that did not approve of the balcony furniture. Anything that is gulf front will be very worn. It is the nature of the wind and salt water. There is a lounge, which I enjoyed very much in the afternoon.
The beach chairs are assigned when you first arrive to the beach, but we were able to "choose", kind of. Early bird gets the worm.
Staying late August we had NO problem with the elevators. The elevators are literally right outside your door. As is an overhang balcony to look out over the strip. Can be a "smoking section" should you so desire. There are ashtrays.
I had no complaint what so ever with the cleanliness. Was there some sand in the corner? yeah. Were my feet dirty while barefoot? yes- it's tile! The hardwood laminate was not laid perfectly, so there is some creaking and bowing. Hey, it's humid! No biggie. It's pretty.
The kitchen could use more amenities. I am always SO disappointed to not have coffee filters or spices. One reason I like to rent from owners and not property managers. But, hey that's part of it.
Blue Swell was an excellent team to rent from and I will do it again 100%. They fixed all issues promptly and with perfect customer service.
Location: The only thing between you and pier park is a well lit side walk and some pull off parking for public beach access. If not for shopping- then for the many food joints and Tootsies for night life. We enjoyed not having to drive to eat after a long day on the beach. On past pier park is Dusty's oyster bar. 0.4m but very much so worth it. A staple in my diet when visiting PCB. On down to the next stop light (west end) is Eat my Pasty. The BEST fish & chips, the most amazing gourmet burgers, and pasties. Local owners.
We have stayed twice at the Calypso 305W. Both visits were great.
Sherry, thank you for being a valued repeat guest. We are thrilled to hear you had another stellar vacation, hope to see you again next year!
This property is in serious need of some TLC! .
This unit is so convenient on the 3rd floor. However, inside the unit there is not enough lamps in the living area or bedroom. It's very dark and dreary inside. The TV will be playing fine then all of a sudden it makes a very loud popping noise and just blacks out for a minute or so then comes back on.
The chair cushions inside and out are very dirty and not inviting to sit on.
The coffee pot barely makes two good cups of coffee. It is too small if you are a coffee drinker. The kitchen is poorly stocked for cooking. No dish cloth supplied but two dish towels and a sponge. There were big spots of some white substance on the floor and doorway to bathroom. The floors themselves were so poorly laid that everywhere you walked it sounded like you were walking on gritty sand.
The best part was the great shower and obviously new towels. Someone needs to take some time and repair and address these things. I would not rent this unit again. I don't re commend it. We were there for a week.
location was great.
The floors were very dirty..we could not go barefoot in the condo cause our feet got black on bottom...cant imagine when they were last mopped.
Dianne, thank you for taking the time to give us a review! We are very sorry to hear that the floors were dirty upon arrival. We have an extensive housekeeping process to ensure our properties stay fresh & clean but mistakes can happen. We also send out an email during your stay and call you the day after you arrive asking if everything has met or exceeded your expectations. It looks like you viewed the housekeeping email and that we left you a voice mail, but unfortunately since you did not report the dirty floors to us we were not able to correct the issue.
We have deduced that the cleaner we are using on the floors has a residue that is causing the issue, so we are meeting with our supplier to come up with a better alternative. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and hope you choose Blue Swell again in the future!
One of the HUGE perks to staying at Calypso is the location directly across the street from Pier Park. Pier Park is a 1.1 million square foot outdoor shopping mall with stores such as Dillard's, Penny's Old Navy, Target and dozens of other smaller shops that are national brands and local mom-and-pop shops. There are also tons of restaurants and entertainment venues (like Miracle Strip at Pier Park). And there is a 16 theater movie theater by The Grand!
