Romantic Carriage Home Perfectly Located In Rosemary Beach!
Jared Pool - Barefoot Vacations
Wonderful building and location
Excellent experience. Been here 6 times and will return next year.
Thank you, Robert, for your continued patronage of our Calypso carriage house! See you next year!
Would stay again!
Everything was just as advertised. We enjoyed our vacation! When there was an issue with one of the bikes, we received a new bike less than an hour after notifying the rental company. Happy customer!
We like happy customers! Thank you for your review.
Such a great weekend!!
The house was so cute! Perfect size for 2 people and great location!
Thank you Jenny! We love that you had a great weekend and enjoyed your time at Calypso!
Great if your young. More difficult for some adults. Great location!
Loved the location. Beautifully decorated, kitchen was fully stocked, nice parking car inside the garage, loved riding the two bicycles each day, plenty of beach chairs for use. The negative was the spiral staircase to the upstairs bedroom. I fell down it first morning going to the bathroom because there is not one upstairs in the bedroom. We left suitcases downstairs because it was near bathroom and too difficult taking them up the spiral steps. No curtains on 3 sets of glass doors on main level. No privacy and lights from outside shined inside at night. No working light at front door. Had to use a flashlight to see and lock/unlock the door. Only one lamp on main level. Need a few more towel holders in bathroom. Great if your young but difficult for older adults.
Thank you for your review. It is important to consider all elements of any house you might consider renting and determine if a property is a good match for your abilities. All issues you mentioned are clearly shown in pictures and should a guest find something concerning you may always email or call with a question prior to booking a property.
Perfect for a weekend getaway
Property was perfectly situated near a beach walkover, shops and restaurants, and the bikes included are a great value.
Thank you, Jessica, for your 5 star review and for choosing to stay with us! We hope that your husband had a great birthday weekend and are glad that you enjoyed the complimentary bikes!
Great little house for 2 in a beautiful, picturesque beach community
As the title says this is a great place to stay. Garage and laundry is in the bottom; bath, great room and kitchenette is on the main floor; a spiral staircase leads to the loft where there are 2 little closets and a king bed. Everything worked fine, and there was no problem with the building or with check in or departure. It is 1 block from the beach, and there are 2 beach accesses (gated) that you can use. PCB is the best beach in the USA. Also within 1 block are little shops, restaurants, etc. All within walking distance or bicycling distance.
Since I am an Engineer, I tend to focus on 'problems' and here they are (now, don't get the idea from this we didn't like the place; it's just, here's the things we didn't like):
- garage door opener and the coded box didn't work; had to use the inside button;
-doors are tricky to lock/unlock, no instructions given;
-don't have very many plugs for cell phones and the like, without unplugging something else;
-THEY ONLY GAVE US ONE ROLL OF TOILET PAPER;
-they supplied beach chairs but we didn't find them until the night before we left;
-no outside lights when we arrived (after dark) hard to see to climb stairs - bring a flashlight;
-there is no Gulf view as advertised unless it's the 5 degrees you can see from one window in the loft through all the other houses;
- one balcony has a tree growing into it;
-spiral stair is fine, but hard to climb particularly if you have had a knee replacement...bath on main floor makes it harder if you have to go in the middle of the night.
The above are all things you need to know; and are why they didn't get 5 stars. Everyone we met couldn't have been nicer to us, and the community is just beautiful.
Thank you Joe for choosing to stay at Calypso and Rosemary Beach for a few days and for your review! A couple of responses to the comments in your review for our future potential guest. Should you have any issues at all, whether it be mechanical or otherwise, please reach out to us. Our numbers are provided on all documentation and are posted at the home. We are in the neighborhood every day and available to assist you as needed. The tree limbs you mentioned have been trimmed from the balcony. There is a gas lantern fixture directly over the entry door (as in the photo) which provides light for entering the home. There are also lights inside and outside of the garage which may be used. There are instructions on how to lock the Hurricane Doors directly above the interior door handle/lock. As per our Rental Agreement, we do provide 2 rolls of toilet paper per stay. The extra roll is located in the cabinet underneath the bathroom sink. We would be happy to bring another roll if we failed to leave enough. The spiral staircase to the master bedroom on the 2nd floor is shown in our photos as well as documented in the property description/overview. We encourage everyone to view the photos to ensure homes are a fit for your needs.
