Guestbook comments from the owner:
This condo is absolutely beautiful!!! True to the pictures online 100%. Very clean, fully stocked with everything you could think of to cook in the kitchen, the views were amazing! Lots of activities in the area, shopping, restaurants, etc... We will most definitely be returning to PCB and staying in this condo for sure.
We couldn’t have been more pleased with our stay at Calypso 1601W. The online pictures are true to life, no surprises here. From start to finish, Kim was prompt and thorough in all communication. The unit itself is GORGEOUS and well thought. We hated to leave and ended up adding another night despite having a paid reservation at another complex due to previous locked in travel plans. We will definitely book this unit for Fall Break 2020. We usually stay at Aqua and love it there, but Calypso 1601W is our new “go-to”. Thank you again for an unforgettable FB19.

We will definitely book this unit for Fall Break 2020. The only hesitation is payment in full being due up front and we aren’t even home from Fall Break ‘19 yet. We usually stay at Aqua and love it there, but Calypso 1601 is our new “go-to”. Thank you again for an unforgettable FB19.
The condo is beautiful with great views and lots of space. It's kept clean and has fairly comfortable beds. Calypso is very conveniently located close to just about everything you would need.
Just wanted to thank you for that outstanding unit. It did not disappoint. After multiple years of searching for the right place, we have found it with the Calypso. We will definitely be back in the future. Thanks for the good time!
We had a wonderful time. The unit was very clean and we loved being at the end. The beach chairs were a bonus. The process from booking to check out was well organized and very easy to manage.We look forward to staying at the Calypso again.
Frequently Asked Questions
What time is check-in and check-out?
Check-in is after 4PM local time, and check-out is by 10AM. Early check-in and late check-out are available for purchase on select rentals. Please email or call the office with your request and the team member will determine if your rental qualifies at that time. If you have already reserved a property, please contact our team to make your request.
What are Keyless Locks and Codes?
Our properties have keyless entry locks. This keyless system allows entry into the vacation rental through the issue of an individualized generated code rather than a physical key. The code changes for every reservation so it is an incredibly safe alternative. By issuing the code prior to arrival, the check-in process is much easier. Please see your reservation information for more on keyless entry systems.
What if we arrive after hours?
Arriving after hours is no problem when you stay in a White Sand Rental Property. Physical check-in is not required. Our check-in process is done by our vacation guest app link. This link is sent approximately two weeks prior to your arrival. We invite you to please go directly to your rental property at your check in time. If you need further assistance for any reason, please contact us.
Is there an age restriction?
Reservations may not be made by or for a minor. Only family guests are allowed in our properties. No units will be rented to vacationing students or singles under the age of 25, unless they are accompanied by an adult guardian or parent who remains in the unit for the entire stay. Reservations made under false pretense are subject to forfeiture of all rental payments and damage protection fee as well as cancellation of the remaining reservation time.
Do you provide daily maid service?
White Sand Rental provides a departure clean on all stays. We also provide an initial supply of towels and linens, as well as trash liners, toilet paper and hand soap. A full-size washer and dryer are provided in every rental property; however, laundry detergent is not supplied due to highly sensitive individual needs, precautions and allergies.
What is provided with the accommodation?
Each of our properties are furnished with modern amenities such as high speed internet/ WiFi, flat screen TV's in living area and bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen with all the essentials, bed and bathroom linens. We do ask that you bring your own beach towels, toiletries, etc.
Also provided with this unit is 2 free beach chair and umbrella service (March - October)!
When is a good time to book a reservation?
Book today! We recommend reserving the unit of your choice as early as possible, especially if you are planning to travel for Spring Break (mid-March to mid-April), Summer Season (Memorial Day to mid-August) or during Fall Break (1st 2 weeks in October). It is also best to book early if planning to travel around a major holiday, such as Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day.
Is there a Minimum Stay?
During the peak seasons, we rent this unit Saturday to Saturday unless the unit is still available about 6 weeks prior to the arrival date. Sometimes we might have special exceptions going on, so it's worth emailing an inquiry. The 3-night minimum still applies throughout the year.
What is your policy on pets and smoking on the premises?
Although we personally love pets, due to individuals who are sensitive to or have allergic reactions, pets are not permitted in any White Sand Rental property or on the premises of said property.
Smoking is not allowed. Guest may smoke outside of the unit, but they are responsible for cleaning up and removal of cigarette butts, ashtrays, etc.
What is your payment policy?
We have a two-payment plan for your convenience, where 50% of the total due is due within 7 days of booking, along with your signed contract documents, and the remaining 50% is due 60 days prior to your arrival.
What is your cancellation policy?
Regarding cancellations, in the event of weather related issues, if a mandatory evacuation is issued, a refund will be given for any unused nights. For our regular cancellation policy, if a cancellation notice is submitted in writing more than sixty days prior to the arrival date, a refund of the payment will be issued, minus a $100 administrative processing fee and any transaction fees if a credit card is used for payment. If less than 60 days prior to the arrival date, we will also refund your payment in full (less the $100 administrative and any transactions fees) only if we are able to re-rent the unit for the same amount. If we need to discount the unit to re-rent it or it rents for fewer days, you will receive a refund for the amount rented (minus the $100 administrative processing fee and transaction fees for credit card use). In most cases, with sufficient notice, we are usually able to re-rent the unit and will make every reasonable effort to do so. However, if we are unable to re-rent the unit, the full payment will be forfeited.
Close to everything, including noise
Calypso is great. It has great amenities, and the processes before check-in, during the stay, and through check-out have been well planned. Elevators are fairly quick, and our condo was clean & spacious. It is within walking distance or a short drive to 100’s of great places. The downside is the noise. It’s near a helicopter ride, so you’ll see/hear them come right past the condo all day. And Front Beach Rd (98) might as well be a drag strip with the vehicles with souped up mufflers that make a ridiculous amount of noise at all hours of the day and night. We could hear it on the 16th floor!

Outstanding Fall Break 2019!!
We decided to join friends staying at Calypso for our kids' Fall Break pretty late in the season. I couldnt a single 2 bedroom with Master balcony access and almost gave up and stayed at Aqua like usual. On what I decided was my last search attempt, White Sand came up with a picture of 1601W. I called my husband and told him we had to go slightly over budget because I had found the most beautiful condo. You never know if the pictures are a true representation of a place until you get there but they are extremely accurate in this case. The condo is so spacious! You can see water from almost anywhere you stand. We loved having high top tables to eat breakfast on the balcony. I booked our Fall Break 2020 return trip shortly after arriving home, just to ensure we could go back again. Maintenance and Housekeeping live at Calypso if you have any issues and Kim, the manager, is so accommodating and helpful. I am confident we will have the same positive experience for our up-coming stay and cannot wait!

Fall 2019 Florida Vacation
Kim, The room was fantastic. As soon as my wife walked in the she said "Wow". I've stayed at Calypso twice before but this was by far the best experience. The location on the beach, proximity to Pier Park, covered parking, free beach chairs, and a Tiki Hut are all great amenities. The room was clean and well decorated. I can't thank you enough for your assistance in making this a stress free and enjoyable vacation. It was hard to leave.

Wonderful condo with amazing views. Very clean and nicely appointed. Booking was amazingly easy, and if I needed anything(which I didn’t), they were a phone call away. We will most definitely be back!! Thanks for letting us borrow your home.
