About Beverly Taylor

I am Beverly Taylor, retired teacher, principal and assistant superintendent of Pike County Schools in AL. My husband is Johnny Taylor, retired Coca Cola Bottling manager. After retiring,in 1989, we bought commercial and residential rental property in Troy, a college town.and are still renting. We absolutely loved our first careers and the rental business. It was therefore, quite natural that we migrated to the beach to try our hand at purchasing and managing condos. What an adventure life has been and still is.We love people and enjoy offering quality vacation property. We also own and help operate our restaurant located in a 100-year old mule barn that we as a family converted. As you might expect it is 'Old Barn Restaurant' and has been featured in numerous publications.

Beverly Taylor purchased this condo in 2011

Why Beverly Taylor chose Florida Panhandle

I think that Calypso is one of the most beautiful complex on Panama City Beach. I love the ample parking in front and the landscaping.It is well constructed and managed and is ideally located just across the street from the famous 'Pier Park' which has over 150 restaurants, shops, and Miracle Strip for the kids. It is ideally located for those who fly in from the new NW Florida Beaches International Airport.and don't want to rent a car. It is an easy walk to Margaritaville Tootsie's, The Grand Theatre, Dilliards, Penny's, etc. A new huge Wal-Mart that has just opened. Pier Park north is coming soon.

What makes this condo unique

Located adjacent to the new pier where so many attractions like concerts and firework displays occur. Sit on the balcony and enjoy the pier shows and the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in the world. Pier Park is just across the street making it an easy walk to over 150 shops, restaurant, Grand Theatre, Wall Mart, Penny's Dilliards, etc.

Nice condo and great experience

  • 5 of 5

We were given all of the information in advance on codes, check in and check out times, amenities, etc.

We actually arrived a tad early and the housekeeper was still there preparing for our stay. She was very

hospitable and invited us in to take a look around to see if we needed anything....We were very comfortable during our stay.

Nice folks to deal with.

I would definitely stay again - great location, great condo, great responsiveness -- minimalistic.

  • 4 of 5

First of all, this unit is in a great location: 20 min car ride from the Panama City airport, right on the beach, right across from lots of restaurants and shops at Pier Park and has access to easy parking and beach chairs/umbrella. Beverly was super responsive and made the arrangements super easy and was very accommodating. The unit itself was nice and comfortable (the bed was awesome) but I have to admit it was "minimalistic" and some things bothered me because it could have been so awesome with very little effort/spending. While I liked that it wasn't cluttered with too much stuff I'd never use on vacation (as I have experienced in other units), I was surprised by some of the stuff that was missing that didn't cost anything and would have made my stay much more enjoyable: a blow dryer, for example. When I visit hotels, I never bring my blow dryer. This unit didn't have one. Beach towels are another example. They did have white bath towels, but I felt bad taking them down to the beach. The other things that were missing were consumables that I wouldn't expect to carry in a suitcase in an airplane or have to purchase them while on vacation: salt and pepper, for example. It would be so inexpensive to have salt and pepper in the unit and avoid a hassle for the vacationer (do I need to toss a salt and pepper shaker in my suitcase?). Toilet paper was another one. There was one roll per bath, not enough if you have more than 2 people. I didn't bring toilet paper in my suitcase and it felt wasteful to go out and purchase a 4 pack but I had to. Also dishwashing detergent -- there were only a few drops there. Again, carrying them in my suitcase seemed silly and buying a whole bottle down there seemed wasteful. I think it would be nice to have a few back up toilet paper rolls, a little more dish and laundry detergent, salt and pepper in the kitchen etc. This is low cost to the owner but high impact for the "flying" vacationers. In all fairness, Beverly did say they only had starter stuff there, so I was warned, but I thought it came across as "cheap" and the tiny investment would have significantly enhanced my experience. This would not deter me in the future, but it is worth noting for future vacationers. and perhaps the owner will add a few more things to make it easier for flying vacationers.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

Condo is clean, well funished, and top notch. Master bed is amazingly comfortable as are the bunk beds as well. Pull-out sofa bed is average but that is to be expected. All appliances work well and kitchen is stocked with basic necessities for cooking/baking. Property grounds are well maintained. Beach access is a breeze. Heated pool was fantastic for night swims on breezy evenings. Would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for mentioning the master bedroom mattress because we strive to provide high quality mattresses in our condos. We even had our bunk bed mattresses custom made and twice as thick as the standard bunk bed mattress. And yes, I agree that the sofa bed is just what you get in the sofa bed. Not bad but just standard. Thanks for mentioning that the kitchen had good appliances and cookware, etc. We do try to keep the kitchens well stocked with glasses, cups silverware pots and pans etc. Thanks for mentioning cleanliness. We have the same housekeeper for five years and are super blessed to have her and her team. I will definitely pass this comment on to her as she is most deserving. The heated pool at Calypso is so nice and we feel lucky that both pools at Calypso are full gulf front offering excellent views of the sugar white sand and the emerald waters of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. We are also happy to offer the complimentary beach chair service for two. Calypso is the premier location because of its proximity to the famous Pier Park and its over 150 shops restaurant and even the theatres. Thanks again for taking the time to submit a review. Please come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to submit this five star review. We think that this condo is so adorable, comfortable, and affordable. We are delighted that the beach service was up and running for your stay. We had been told that they would not provide the service until starting March 15. So glad that you got to enjoy the service during your stay. You were indeed a pleasure to have as a guest in our condo. PLEASE COME BACK OFTEN.

You step out of the Calypso Beach Resort and you are on the sugar white sand and 100 steps to the emerald waves.It does not get any better than this. This condo is beach front and has beautiful full un-obstructive views of the beautiful white sand and emerald gulf waters. Calypso is the most desired of all condos because it is directly across the street from the famous PierPark with over 150 shops, restaurants, etc.
