Oceanview Condo, 3 Bedrooms (Sleeps 9), 2 Baths, Reserved Parking Spot, Premium
About KERRY SCHRAND
Since 1980 I have looked forward to our annual family vacation in Panama City Beach. We always stayed at St. Andrews Park in a pop-up camper and had a blast. When we grew up, Mom and Dad finally bought a condo. To make a sad story short, my Dad died suddenly in 2002 and Mom sold the condo. I convinced Mom to buy another one - with my husband and ME! As soon as I learned about Calypso, I knew it was the perfect spot for our family. Our arrangement has worked out great. I handle the bookkeeping and Mom takes good care of our guests! THIS IS A FAMILY AFFAIR! We hope you will enjoy our FLIP FLOPS FAMILY FUNSPOT as much as we do. Sunshine, Kerry
KERRY SCHRAND purchased this Condo in 2006
Why KERRY SCHRAND chose Panama City Beach
CALYPSO IS THE BEST LOCATION ON THE BEACH! We have the ocean at our back door, and Pier Park out our front door! We are really excited that we were able to reserve dual beach lounge setups with huge umbrellas that the beach service will set up each day for you - close to the water's edge! This is a $230 value at no extra cost to you! (Available from March until November) NEW FOR YOU: We recently purchased a reserved parking spot in the beachside garage right under the condo (no crossing the street or searching for a place to park) for your convenience because it was the only luxury that we did not have to offer our guests, and this was making me crazy! NOW NO ONE BEATS FLIP FLOPS:)

My wife and I have been coming to Panama City beach for 20 years, we have never had such a nice place before. Easy access and great memories for sure, we have booked again for next year. Really enjoyed our stay and Kerry was so good in helping me navigate parking and random questions. Love this place and will be back for sure.
PARADISE AWAITS YOU!
Thank you, Chris!
Wonderful Family Vacation
Hands down the best unit our family has ever rented at The Calypso. Perfect location. Beautifully decorated (and comfortable). Fully, and I mean fully stocked for guest. "white glove" clean. Tons of extras you will not find with other rentals. All the comforts of home with a beach front view. If we could give it 10 stars, we would. Kerry is wonderful to work with. We have loved The Calypso since it opened, have stayed in some nice units, but this one will be the Sharpe Family's favorite.

PS: Could have stayed in the comfy bed for days. Like sleeping on a cloud.
I LOVE YOUR REVIEW!
I will let our housekeeper know that her extra efforts are appreciated. The Sharpe's are welcome anytime in FLIP FLOPS!
Great condo....great location!
The condo was very clean and the first floor location was perfect. No waiting on elevators, and the view of the pool and beach was fantastic! Right across the street from Pier Park....so we were able to just walk across the street for dinner. We enjoyed our stay here very much!
Thank you for pointing our the advantages of FIRST FLOOR FLIP FLOPS! Our location is the BEST!
A wonderful week with family at our now favorite beach condo in Panama City Beach.
FAVORITE! Oh we love your review!!!

If you love water sports (and if not, you're about to!), the big question here isn't what to do, it's how to fit it all in. At Panama City Beach, water sports aren't just something to do, they're a way of life. Best of all, we've got all the equipment, guides and lessons you need right here.
CRUISING, BOATING, FISHING:
The Gulf of Mexico is beautiful from the white-sand shores of Panama City Beach, but you get a totally different perspective out on the water, whether you're fishing, zipping across the Gulf on a banana boat or just kicking back on one of our famous sunset cruises. Dolphin cruises are another great way to see Panama City Beach by water and observe dolphins in their natural habitat.
DIVING & SNORKELING:
What does every diver want? Great weather, great water and an underwater landscape teeming with life. Done, done and done! Experienced divers love our reefs and wrecks, and for newcomers, snorkeling is the perfect introduction to Panama City Beach water sports!
Skimboarders run towards the ocean, drop into the thin wash of retreating waves, then skim out to sea and ride the breaking waves back to shore. Our sugar-white sands and flat waters make Panama City Beach a must-skim destination.
Take a dolphin tour - go solo, or aboard a 2 OR 3 seater.
SUP - Stand Up PADDLEBOARDING:
One of the hottest newcomers to Panama City Beach water sports, paddle boarding uses big boards, letting riders stand and gently paddle their way across the water.
Part of what makes Panama City Beach water sports unique is that there are opportunities for everyone - experts and newbies alike - and surfing is one area where we're perfect for beginners. With our white-sand beaches, mild climate and mid-sized Gulf waves, entry-level never felt so good!
Fast boats lift parachutes high in the air, and you with them. Go solo, or try our big chutes to share the experience with family and friends. Of all the beach sports you might try, this one that gives you a bird's-eye view you'll never forget!
ST ANDREWS STATE PARK -
St. Andrews State Park was named the #2 beach in the nation, but whether you're interested in sunbathing on the beach, snorkeling along the jetties, canoeing, kayaking or hiking through the forest, there's something for everyone here! Fishing from the pier or the jetties is popular, and a boat ramp provides access to St. Andrew Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Nature trails wind through a rich diversity of coastal plant communities providing an excellent opportunity for bird-watching - You might even spot a deer! Take a boat tour to pristine Shell Island. The 700-acre island is home to deer, turtles, pelicans, sandpipers, gulls and piping and snowy plovers, and in the surrounding waters you'll spot colorful fish, dolphins, sea turtles and other aquatic life. Shuttles are available to take visitors back and forth from St. Andrews State Park, and pontoon boat rentals are another popular way to get to Shell Island.
Part of a growing greenways and trails system that will span the entire island of Panama City Beach. Gayle's Trails connects Frank Brown Park to the 3,000-acre Panama City Beach Conservation Park, where you'll find long boardwalks crossing cypress swamps, off-road trails perfect for walking or biking.
