The Perfect Condo in Panama City Beach

This is the perfect condo for 2 families, having 3 bedrooms (one with bunk beds), 2 full bathrooms, an open kitchen-dining-livingroom area, high-speed WIFI and a TV in every room. The condo was clean and decorated as pictured. The balcony overlooking the ocean and pool was even larger than pictured with 2 high tables, 4 bar chairs and a chaise lounger. There are doors to the balcony from both the livingroom and the master bedroom. The balcony gets good sun even on cold days, which feels wonderful to those of us from the north. The sunrises and sunsets over the ocean are gorgeous, especially with the pier in sight. The Calypso is in the perfect location just a long block away from the action at Pier Park. The fine white sand beaches are a pleasure to walk on. This was my second time staying at one of Jenny's condos at the Calypso, and it won't be my last. She is highly responsive to calls and texts, and has the booking process thoroughly streamlined. As a bonus, she is a very nice person.

An Amazing Condo

Condo was spacious and well maintained. The added private parking and beach chair service was a definite plus. Will rent this condo again for our future family vacations.

Great Stay

Our stay at the condo was excellent. Everything was clean and in nice working condition. Our week at the beach and the surrounding Panama City Beach area was great. Shopping and great food was readily available. You did an excellent job of keeping everything organized before our stay by using emails.

Clean and Comfortable

Overall experience was great. Room was clean and had everything we needed. Even beach toys! Owner was very accommodating when we needed an extra set of chairs at the beach. She responded to inquiries very quickly. We would consider staying here again.

Highly Recommend - wonder family vacation

There are no words to describe how lovely our vacation was and the pictures do not do this place justice. It is so refreshing to walk in and be pleasantly surprised - the owners were very responsive with questions prior to booking and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking in the area.

Wonderful Place for a Vacation!

We had a wonderful time at your condo in Panama City. Loved the view from the balcony and the weather turned out to be beautiful. We loved that we could walk to restaurants and shopping too. We are hoping to come back next year and bring our kids and grandkids. What a good vacation spot!!

I have stayed in the Calypso every summer for 10+ years. We love the location.

Very nice building. Overall the condo wasn't bad although compared to others we have stayed in this one wasn't as nice; it needed painted, bedspreads needed replaced, and furniture was old and scuffed up pretty bad. The cleaning could have been better: we found trash under the beds and small cereal boxes in the bunk beds and some other trash under the living room furniture. The master bed creaked with every movement but was comfortable and the fosset needed worked on in the master bath ( hot/cold hooked up wrong you either got hot or cold water no warm) On a good note there were plenty of pillows and blankets. Jenny was great to work with and very friendly. I didn't complain about the rental issues we just went with the flow and enjoyed our vacation without focusing on minor things;) We prefer staying on the 2-4th floor and this was on the 4th floor so it was the location we wanted although we didn't book until March due to our original condo being canceled at the last minute by the owner ( previous reservation was 3rd floor and cheaper) but nice as we had stayed in it before. No condo is ever prefect and that's understandable. Again Jenny was great and that makes up for any issues so I didn't feel the need to complain:) Ac was cold, w/d worked, beds comfy, great view, plenty of kitchen utensils, lots of toys, beach chairs, and even coolers. Everything you need for a good time. Loved that we could change the door code to something new could remember. Again not complaining just comparing to other units in the calypso. Our Response I'm so sorry that you were not happy with the condition of this condo compared to others at the Calypso. I apologize for the items that were missed by our cleaning crew. I do wish you had shared your concerns with me so that I could have dealt with the cleaning and maintenance issue and then also shared a bit of history with you. A few weeks prior to your arrival we had a guest that created a great deal of damage to this condo. It did take a beating and we have repaired all functional and comfort items. With only 6 hours between guests each Saturday, there were a number of aesthetic items we were not able to correct before your arrival, such as painting scratched walls and repairing or replacing furniture that was scratched or scraped. I have not been able to physically get into the unit since the damage occurred, but will be coming in August to assess everything. Those items will be addressed at that time so that we can make the repairs without cancelling anyone's reservation. In the meantime, I hope you will remember all the extras that you mentioned, such as the beach chairs, Netflix, coolers, extensively equipped kitchen, comfy beds, etc. and will give us another chance next year! We do appreciate your stay, and would love to have another chance to earn your 5-star review! Jenny

2017 Family Vacation

This Unit was more than accommodating, Jenn was super easy to deal with and answered all questions very quickly. The bonus closet in Laundry room was packed full with beach toys ,floats,and chairs better than any unit I've ever rented...will miss 402 East for sure.

Outstanding 1st class accomodations

Outstanding condo-- close to everything one could want on a holiday --the beach ,heated pool ,Pier Park (restaurants, bars, shopping, and cinemas) all within walking distance and --our host Jenny checked with us on our arrival to ensure everything was to our satisfaction and it was as it has been the last 5 years--I will return next year and would not hesitate to recommend her accommodations to friends and family.

Excellent Stay

Property management company very organized. Condo clean and well maintained. Only small complaint is only receiving one toilet paper and dishwasher soap for a weeks stay.

by Scott M Submitted Date of Stay:

The room was great. The beds were comfortable and view was amazing!!

The room was great the only draw back was the walk down to the beach was long. Hard on people with small children or older people. Overall though I would go back and stay in same room. PBC Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. We're fortunate at the Calypso to be right on the beach, but you do have to walk through the pool area and down some steps to get to the beach. When you return, if you'd like for us to make arrangements with the beach service, we are able to arrange easy transportation to the beach for anyone that is elderly and needs extra assistance getting to the beach chairs! Just let me know if you'd like to arrange for this assistance. My 90 year old mother comes to the beach once a year, and they are VERY HELPFUL, picking her up in a beach rover at the front of the east tower elevators, and driving her right to her beach chairs! Then when she's ready to go up, they drive her back up! There's no fee for the service, but we always recommend that you tip them generously for this extra service. We look forward to your return! We're always happy to welcome our returning guests! --- Jenny

Wonderful Vacation!

We had a great time in PCB! It was unanimous by all that we are going to come back next year and we definitely want to stay in the same condo again. Everyone had plenty of room, we had everything we needed and the pictures on VRBO don’t do it enough justice. Loved how we could walk to the pier and Pier Park in the evening and check out the shopping and restaurants. We hardly got in our car at all, except for the one day it rained, we went to East PCB to check out some of the shops there. Jenny was wonderful and very easy to work with. We are all looking forward to next year!

Beautiful condo with everything we needed for a great family get away

Everything was as we expected and Jenny was great to work with. The property is close to restaurants and shopping not to mention a beautiful beach. This was partially important for us as our car ended up in the shop for the first 3 days. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for the week. The view from the balcony was amazing and beautiful. It was great having the beach chairs for the whole week. Would definitely consider coming back. My Response

This condo made our vacation at Panama City Beach Florida amazing. It was very clean as well spacious and welcoming. It had a beautiful view of the beach and the pool. It was really close to pier park as well as many cool restaurants. Will definitely be booking to stay at Calypso's the next time we make it to Panama City Beach.
