Nice Property, Awesome Owner....But....

Calypso property is nice but they only have 3 elevators serving over a hundred rooms. Very congested and long waits at peak times. Also the parking garage required a scan upon entry and exit. This area is near pier park and VERY busy. Traffic very congested.

Snowbird stay during pandemic

My husband and I are snowbirds. This is our 2nd year staying at the Calypso and booking with Jenny. We have already booked for next January-March. This was an unusual year with the Coronavirus hitting Florida in March. My husband and I were nervous about traveling back home, Jenny was wonderful and worked with us to enable us to stay on until May. As for the condo, it was wonderful. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Brand new stainless appliances had just been put in. The furniture was comfortable and the condo itself nicely decorated. If you are concerned about coming to the Calypso once the travel bands have been lifted, don’t be. We felt very safe. Cleaning was going on continually. The elevators were wiped down with disinfectant numerous times throughout the day. The pools were cleaned daily. The pool chairs were also wiped down and staggered for social distancing. Disinfectant wipes were available upon entrance to the pool. The beach chairs also were staggered 6 feet apart for social distancing. The beach attendants were hard workers and were constantly asking what they could do to make us more comfortable. Grocery stores were well stocked and very safe with carts wiped down, and arrows on floor to show shopping pattern for social distancing. Pier park was open to walk through and numerous restaurants were open for takeout. So, if you have a vacation planned at the Calypso with Jenny, let me reassure you, you will be safe. If you are thinking you need to get away to the beach after quarantining, again Jenny and the Calypso can make that happen.

Jenny, the property manager, was the best part of the vacation.

Jenny, the property manager, was the best part of the vacation. She was so informative and helpful. The email reminders and clarification were wonderful. The condo was nice and as described. It was very nice to be close to pier park and getting 2 sets of beach chairs included was wonderful. One of the bedrooms was smaller than expected but it wasn't a problem, the bed was very uncomfortable though. The other rooms were just as described and very comfortable. I would recommend this condo for a great beach vacation.

Had another great week at Calypso!

Had another great week at Calypso, have been here four other times, love the location, next to Pier Park and close to many other restaurants and attractions. Jenny with Premium Beach Condos was great to work with and made the reservation process very easy, her communication at every stage of my stay was spot on!! Looking forward to my next visit to Panama City Beach and Calypso and Premium Beach Condos. Thanks so much everything!

This condo has become our favorite.

This condo has become our favorite. Love the property and that it’s a very short walk to pier park. 806 East had everything we wanted: GREAT price, lower floor and very spacious. The property owner, Jenny, was phenomenal! Super to work with and made booking so easy!!! We will definitely stay here again!

The property was amazing!

The property was amazing! From the cleanliness to the location, I couldn't have chosen a better property for my three night stay.

Calypso 806 East

The condo was very nice and the view was beautiful. I loved that it was within walking distance to Pier Park and many good eating options. I would definitely stay here again. The only negative comment that I would make is that the remotes for the TV's do not match the brands in the directions in the white binder. I was able to locate the needed remotes for the living room TV but I was unable to locate remote for Netflix access in the master bedroom. I did not call for help as I found a good book to read that was left in the condo so all was good!!

by Misti V Submitted Date of Stay:

Very clean. Best condo we have ever stayed in.

We absolutely LOVED this condo. When traveling to Panama City Beach in the future, I will look to book this condo again. The private parking was amazing. The condo was beautiful. The view was amazing. Perfect Sweet 16 trip with my daughter.

by Rebecca W Submitted Date of Stay:

Awesome!

The condo was very well furnished and large. I was very surprised at the size of the bedrooms and bathrooms. The view was spectacular. We hated to leave.

Vacation of a lifetime!

Our family drove 16 hours to arrive in Panama City Beach. We were thrilled to be able to park early in the private parking space. The condo was also ready early, so we were allowed in almost 4 hours early (creating another day at this beautiful beach). The condo was perfect! We loved everything about it, especially the view from the balcony. We loved the beach, the sand is wonderful. On one of our many walks on the beach we saw jelly fish, rays swimming and playing very close by, and many other fish. Just beautiful. The location is perfect, walking distance to Pier Park, tourist shopping, and even Target and Walmart! In addition to staying on the beach we did a dolphin tour. My family got to jump in and swim around wild dolphins, a trip to Shell Island is a must for this area. I hope to come back again and again. We hated to leave. Jenny was amazing, answering anything we needed to know. Calypso gets my vote for future trips to Panama City Beach. THANK YOU for an amazing trip!

Wonderful and very convenient to Pier Park

We really enjoyed our time! You made it so very easy and I feel like you went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly! Thank you so very much!!

Amazing!

The condo was great! Very clean and well attended to. Any (minor) issue was handled near instantly! The property manager is on top of everything and even helped us out when our baby had a medical issue that we weren't sure if we would have to stay longer. She's an amazing person! Our only tiny "complaint", that is more an observation, was that the beach chair situation during a busy time was crazy! We would absolutely stay there again and I'm admittedly picky!

Our Response

Brianne, Thank you for your kind review. We were SO pleased to hear that your son was improving and well enough to return home with you. Our whole family was concerned about you during what was clearly a difficult time. We're already looking forward to your return! - Jenny -- P.S. As for the beach chair service - yes, it does get VERY VERY busy during the spring break weeks and the summer season. Spring Break is then the new staff are learning the ropes, but they usually have the kinks worked out by summer :)

Very Nice Condo

Our stay was great. Jenny is very attentive and responds very fast with any issues. We will definitely contact her again our next stay in PCB. I'm pretty picky about where we stay and Calypso did not disappoint. Very clean pools and property.

Great Condo - Great Process - No Surprises

We had a great time as always. The condo was perfect for us and just as expected. Thanks for accommodating us with the extra day at the last minute. We are looking at the kids' fall break week in October for a possible trip. I'll watch the website and I'll be in touch once we decide. Thanks again!

by Jon D Submitted Date of Stay:

5 Star Stay Along With 5 Star Customer Service

We really enjoyed the stay in your unit. Everything was wonderful and well maintained. You have been by far the most attentive and friendly owner that we have dealt with in the 4 years we've been coming to Panama City Beach.
Your unit will be at the top of our list next year when we book our PCB vacation in 2017.
Again, thanks so much for all your help and hospitality.

Great Beach Week!

We enjoyed our stay at the calypso. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. The beach is beautiful and the weather was great, especially in May, not too hot. The calypso is our preference for accommodations because it is walking distance from pier park and the fishing pier. Jenny was very quick to get back to us to answer questions and take care of our needs. She was very thoughtful and easy to work with. This particular trip was Mother's Day and my sons 21st birthday. We enjoyed celebrating in Panama with family and friends. We will be back!

Flawless

Thank you very much for the use of your wonderful condo. Despite the uncooperative weather, my family and I had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, and my kiddos really enjoyed the pool since the gulf water was a bit on the frigid side. You have crafted an extremely smooth process from check-in to check-out which I greatly appreciate. We are in Panama City often since both my wife's and my family live there and will definitely enjoy your condo again.

Our Response
Thank you!!! So happy to have you as our guest. If we could order perfect weather for every guest, we would, but alas there are a few things we just can't special order. But we're glad you were able to take advantage of the little activities such as games, puzzles, cards, books, Netflix, etc. that we keep in the condo for just such moments when being outside isn't fun. There are also some fabulous indoor activities in PCB such as the laser tag, or the Wonder Works and Ripley's Believe It or Not museums! Great for sour weather or sun-burned days. We're already looking forward to your return! -- Jenny

Great Condo!

This condo was great, it had all the appliances needed for your stay and the décor was beautiful. We have stayed at Calypso several times and this stay was wonderful.

A first-class resort

We wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves during our family vacation this year. We are not a family that can afford the luxury of out-of-state, week-long vacations that so many people make on a yearly basis. But when we do plan something, we try to go big! So this year, we set our sights on the beach & your condo completely fit the bill. It had everything we needed and more. The view was spectacular, the rooms were spacious, the beds were comfy, and the entertainment was plentiful! We vacationed with our kids and both sets of parents, with an age range of 4-64. Even with 8 people, we never felt like we were on top of each other at the condo and no one ran out of things to do or places to see, In fact, we think we need to make another trip back to check out more things we ran out of time for! Nearly everything is within walking distance, and what wasn't, was definitely worth the drive. We made a lot of great memories and are still laughing two weeks later about some of them! Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at a first-class resort and taking such good care of your guests! We'll for sure recommend you and your suites whenever we get the chance!

Never seen fireworks like that in my life

I'm 57 years old. Been to TX beach maybe 2-3 times n last 30 yrs. Never been n a condo. I'm a hick, cows, hay, etc. Me & my wife cud find absolutely nothing neg to say bout ur condo. It was perfect. Didn't know bout the other life out there. U showed an old cowboy sumpin new. My kids are freaking out that I enjoyed the trip. Did smell some aromas from adjacent balconies that were familiar from the 70s :) u rule & may God bless you. 70;s brought back memories. Everyone we met (all ages) xtremely courtious. Even showed ur condo to a lady we met from Georgia. U shud b xpecting a call from her. U rule Jenny, I don't say that lightly. If you knew my kids (in there 30s) u wud understand. I'm a hick cowboy. I've never seen fireworks like that in my life!
