Why not ride the kiddy train at nearby Pier Park and then take a whirl on the Sky Wheel, a new addition in Spring 2018 that will appeal to all. A dinner and ice cream at one of the many establishments at Pier Park and your evening is complete!
You name it you can do it in PCB. Withing a few minutes walk/drive you can do any of the following:

Favorite Places To Eat
We love Diego's Margarita Bar and Burrito Factory! The food is great and drinks even better. It's about a 5 minute walk right across from the Hampton Inn.
Fatty's sandwich shop is another great place to eat for lunch. It's right across the street on the 1st floor of the parking garage.

Guestbook comments from the host:
We just completed our stay at this condo in the Calypso! It was absolutely perfect! Words can't describe the beauty of the setting, the location, and the prompt responses from the owner. We were staying somewhere else and this popped up, it was truly a God send. Pools were beautiful, walking distance to Pier Park and the pier. You will not be disappointed, cant wait to go back!
Home away from home.

Beautiful condo and great location!!
This condo is beautiful decorated and very comfortable. Our family of 3 would stay here again. The location on beach is perfect, it’s conveniently located next to pier park, making shopping and dinner plans a quick 5min walk with no fighting traffic to park - This is a HUGE plus!!! The condo was well equipped, even had a Keurig coffee maker. The chairs on the balcony we’re relaxing for morning coffee and sunsets. The condo was clean and well maintained, beds were comfortable, TV had a good selection of channels (nice for rainy days), plenty of beach equipment in the condo for guest to use including a small cooler and boogie boards, shelling and minnow nets. The convenience of the beach chair service was an added bonus to renting this condo. John was very easy to work with on booking this unit, he was quick to answer questions. 5 stars for John’s service and 5 stars for his condo. Looking forward to staying here again on our next trip.The Fisher Family

Paradise on Panama Beach
This was a great vacation! It was easy to book and all the information you needed was emailed to you. The condo is on the 9th floor and has a beautiful view of the beach, pools and the gulf. It was fun to set on the balcony and watch everything. Even thought it's a one bedroom there is plenty of room. There are recessed bunks in the hall and a couch that pulls out and two full bathrooms. We had 4 people and there was plenty of room. Kitchen is well appointed with everything you need. Great location and you can walk to restaurants and shopping. The condo is very clean. I would rent this unit again. The owner is very helpful.

Our stay at Calypso Condo was great. The Condo was very clean and well furnished. There was only two of us but you could have an additional four individuals. Parking was very convenient and the location was close to shopping and restaurants. The beach was clean and the white sand was great. The beach service we experienced for beach chairs was very good. OUR STAY WAS EXCELLENT.

Spring Break Stay.
Great condo, great property! We lived in Panama City Beach for 12 years and went back for a vacation. It was different being a tourist and staying in a condo, but we loved it. It was spacious and comfortable with everything needed to enjoy what we went there for, the beach!
Stayed: March 2022Submitted: March 24, 2022
Having never been to Panama City Beach before, we definitely picked the best and I will repeat, the best, location. It was a few minutes walk to Pier Park where there are multiple restaurants, stores and activities. As well, there are several walking trails around lakes. There were several events that were at Pier Park and the outdoor stage that we enjoyed while we were there. The condo was great as well. Loved the sunset every night right from the balcony. It was clean, well equipped and quiet. Definitely would recommend (and have recommended) this to others.
Stayed: February 2022Submitted: March 23, 2022
The Calypso was a great get away spot. The view of the beach, ocean and pier are wonderful. It was a peaceful place to stay and relax. We were welcomed by a great staff and clean condo. Enjoyed the stay tremendously. It was so nice being within walking distance to Pier Park. Our favorite place to eat was Pampano Joe’s. We ate seafood every evening but actually ate at Pampano’s twice.Utilizing the Beach service was extremely easy and the beach staff was very nice and accommodating. I would recommend staying at the Calypso to anyone who plans to visit PCB. The Host of the condo we stayed it was terrific with sharing information, keeping us informed, and made booking the condo extremely easy.

Needed a place to stay to participate in the Panama City Beach Marathon and John’s condo was perfect. It was very clean, nice and great location across from Pier Park. The best part was working with John. He was so professional and accommodating to make sure our trip and race was a great experience. John stayed in touch and made sure it all went well. Definitely would work with John anytime headed that way in the future!

A Slice of Heaven
This makes our 3rd time staying with John. He is a pleasure to work with. He goes beyond making sure your stay is wonderful. Walking into his units , you can tell he takes pride in his units. His kitchen is fully stocked with all you need if you decide to prepare meals. The furniture is not only beautiful but also extra comfortable. All the comforts of home are here. The views from the balcony is beautiful , while sitting in the high top chairs that you can see over the rails instead of thru them. Calypso is located close enough to Pier Park to walk and located close to many restaurants for your special meals. I would definitely recommend booking with John in one of his units. Looking forward to our next trip. Barbara & Randy Carr.
Stayed: November 2021Submitted: December 06, 2021
Thanks so much Barbara! We try our best to make this our home away from home and as comfortable as possible so everyone has a great time! Until next time!
We had a great time at Calypso 903W. The unit is clean and nicely furnished. John is great with communication. Calypso prob has the best elevators in PCB!! If you know you know!! Thanks again for a great stay. Would highly recommend.
Stayed: October 2021Submitted: October 26, 2021
Great to hear that about the elevators! I know some properties have real issues! Glad ours did not disappoint!
John's 9th floor condo at Calypso was the best! A perfect view, free beach service, and a beautifully decorated vacation home away from home. The bed was very comfortable and the decor was beachy AND glam! Along with the two hallway bunks, there is a sofa bed in the LR (plenty of room to leave it open if needed) and a second full size bathroom so a family of 5 or 6 could stay here comfortably. The location is directly across from Pier Park which meant we didn't have to drive at all! The parking garage crosses over he road directly to the condo, which is convenient and safe, I found this hidden gem at the last minute and I'm thankful I did. John was a very good host, making sure I had all the info needed before check-in, made sure everything was ok after arrival, and helped me with an issue I had during checkout. I will definitely be back. If you're looking for a great place to stay in PCB, don't pass this one up!

"Beautiful, relaxing condo with an amazing view of the Gulf"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Calypso 903W. John's condo is very nice and well-appointed. The beach service and free Netflix made this a great value. The view of the Gulf and pier from the balcony was amazing. Every day ended with a beautiful sunset. Great dining and area attractions are within walking distance or a short drive. If you are interested in vacationing in Panama City Beach, we highly recommend staying here. John is very accommodating and truly cares that his renters enjoy their stay.

Perfect week in PCB!
We had a girls trip to PCB this past week & it was wonderful. John was great to work with. The condo was beautiful and the view was stunning!!! We had absolutely perfect weather! Our only recommendation is for there to be more bath towels. The only complaint we had was that the mattresses were not super comfy but we didn’t expect anything spectacular. Overall we had a great trip & the location in unbeatable! I would definitely stay at this resort and in this condo again! Thanks John for everything!

The condo was perfect for our family vacation. The owner was available to help guide us on information we didnt know and went above and beyond ro make sure our stay went well. You couldnt get a better location with the Pier and shopping within walking distance and BEACH CHAIR S AND UMBRELLA came with out stay! Talking to others who had to pay for their chairs just put icing on the cake. We will only be staying here in the future when visiting PCB!
Stayed: June 2021Submitted: July 05, 2021
To start, John was a lifesaver for our vacation in so many ways! We had a house booked, a couple months prior to our vacation that fell through due to construction so I was frantically looking for something for my family and my sisters family. I was hesitant to stay in Panama City because we are used to Santa Rosa and haven’t been down this far in a while. Florida is hopping right now so we basically took what we could get! That worked out for the best for us! John helped me find an additional unit for my sisters family in same complex so we wouldn’t be too far from one another, I feel like he went above and beyond by doing this and I’m so very grateful. Next, we get to Florida, I hear immediately from John making sure all is good, we had a slight issue with a funny smell and a couple other things that I would want to know about if I were the condo owner so I told him and he instantly had someone there to fix the issue! The condo itself was so nice, newly remodeled and everything we needed was there even a small cooler for the beach and floats for the water (super handy!) The beach was pretty crowded, more than I’m used to in Santa Rosa but having the beach chairs already was so convenient. We were traveling with teenagers and being so close to the pier and Pier Park was The best for them, I never worried about them going over to pier park to shop or eat and they had the best vacation because they had some freedom to roam! Thank you John for the worry free vacation! I know we will be back!!!

Thanks so much for the kind words Nikki! So glad you had a great time and hoping to have you back as a guest again soon!
Great place to spend your vacation. The condo was very clean, and was well decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed and the appliances are high end. The furniture is very comfortable and the view from the ninth floor is quite special. The pier and pier park is super close and very easy to get there. The beach in front of the condo is wide and close to volleyball nets, and water sports kiosk.We were 3 adults and 2 kids and we were very comfortable and happy with the amenities. The two pools were big enough and the sun doesn't hit them at all times so when you are tired of the sun (it might happen) you can switch to the pool in no time.Parking was easy and very close to shopping centers.John was very approachable and easy to work with. He was very responsive and available for anything we needed.Overall very good place to stay, we had lots of fun and fun memories. Will definitely be back as soon as we can.

We have nothing but good things to say about John, the condo and Calypso.

Awesome place to stay!
Our stay at Calypso was amazing. The unit was clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. The proximity to Pier Park is an added perk. Lots of shopping and great restaurants within walking distance so you don’t have to get stuck in traffic. The Back Porch restaurant is our favorite. Our family is already looking forward to a return visit. Thanks, John!

Spectacular balcony birw
We begin our stay with a beautiful view of the New Year’s fireworks at Pier Park. The sunrises and sunsets were strikingly beautiful. Relaxing on the balcony not only did we enjoy the panoramic view, we were able to taken-in the sun. John was an awesome host checking in to ensure we were comfortable. The condo is beautifully decorated in a costal theme and extremely comfortable. I’m sure we’ll be retiring to this amazing condo experience.

Awesome as Always!!
Let me start by saying John is fabulous to deal with and is always checking in to make sure your stay is all that you expected. I have stayed with John before but got to visit in September and October this year and may decide to stay again! Both of his condos are clean, comfy and provide everything you will need for your stay. If you get the chance to stay in one of his condos be sure to eat dinner at one of our faves Runaway Island and if you are looking for a nice romantic night out try Firefly. We also love walking down and eating oysters at Shuckums and listening to karaoke at night or walk the other direction Dusty’s Oyster Bar!

This condo is so clean and great and I am a very picky person !! John is great to work with !! This is the second year I have rented from him . This year we tried the lower level condo as of last year we had the higher level one . Both were wonderful and so clean !! I so appreciate a honest person who I am renting from . The only trouble we had this year was that the air conditioning went out in our whole building for at least almost 2 days but that wasn’t his fault. I will definitely rent from fyou I’m John again and tell my friends and customers to rent from him!!

Out Of This World!
Where do i even begin?!?! I came across the Hughes's condo at Calypso Resort when searching for a place to stay in FL for our celebration/vacation. When i had called and talk to John on the phone he was super nice and helpful. We were super excited and honored to be the first guests to stay at the condo, on the beach!When we arrived and got to the room, we were not disappointed one bit. It was extremely clean, smelled good, beachy vibe, fun colors, cute, and had a great view. The condo had everything we needed and more which made everything for our stay so much more convenient! Pots, pans, cups, fridge, washer, dryer, silverware, tv, wifi, netflix, pool, beach chair, and more!The Hughes's are such amazing and friendly people. Whenever you have any questions or concerns they would go above and behind to assist you. They really knocked the ball out of the park when it comes to making the guests feel comfortable as well as meeting if not exceeding expectations!I would absolutely recommend renting from the awesome couple! You definitely get your moneys worth out of it. Of course, some motels are cheaper but i can assure you the experience will NOT be the same. Especially when you don't get all the living essentials, clean environment, and luxury that you do at a condo.I would give 6 stars if I could.

Thanks so much Morgan! I do my best to make your stay the best possible! Please come back again and stay with us soon!
Very convenient to everything
My daughter & I enjoyed staying in Calypso 903W. It was the perfect size space for us & exactly the right floor for the balcony view. It was so convenient to walk out the condo & right into the downtown stores & restaurant & pier. The condo was clean & well kept. We will go back for sure! I would highly recommend this place to others looking for a PCB vacation.

Best Condo & location
We stayed here as soon as the rental ban was lifted. So very glad we picked this condo. SUPER CLEAN, I don't say that lightly. Well furnished, very comfy king bed. Great view from the balcony. Loved the balcony chairs/table, my husband now wants to buy some, lol. So nice to walk to Pier Park. Entire complex kept beautiful & clean. We never once felt uncomfortable. Forgot about the pandemic going on. Lol. Never had an owner bend over backwards to help us with our reservations. Coming back in the fall, already reserved! Thank you John Hughes!

Thanks Debbie! I also love those chairs! Wish I had some at home myself!
A Million Dollar View
We recently stayed for a week in Johns unit at 903 West. John was very attentive to our needs and kept in touch with us throughout the process of checking in and out. Even though we ran into issues with the COVID-19 and the water being shut down for a while for repairs, we would not hesitate to recommend this condo to anyone.When you are sitting on the balcony there is not a care in the world! Thanks again John for letting us use your beautiful condo! The Montross family

Thanks so much for your feedback and understanding during these crazy times. next time will be even better! Come back anytime!
Calypso Towers is ideally located in walking distance to shopping and the beach. Each day we were able to walk the beach or around Pier Park and follow it up with a swim in the heated pool. A short drive and I was able to play a round of golf at Signal Hill. All in all it was a pleasant two months

Cal,So glad you enjoyed your stay. Would love to understand what else we could have done to have made the stay a 5 Star! Thanks!
Perfect place to ring in 2020
We decided to be in PCB for NYE and the beach ball drop. We could not have picked a more perfect condo in the best location for what we were in town for. John was great to work with and made the rental process very easy on such short notice. The condo is very beautiful and was very well organized and clean. We would definitely recommend this unit.

So glad you had a great time! Hope to see you back again soon as a guest.
My husband and I had the pleasure of renting one of nicest condos in PCB. It was updated and exceptionally clean. The condo was on the ninth floor. The furnishings were of great quality and very updated. You could tell the owner took pride in his unit and made it like home to his guest. It was conveniently located within walking distance to Pier Park. We enjoyed the fireworks nightly during our stay from our condo. The views of the beach is breathtaking. The owner John was a pleasure to work with and made sure everything was great when we arrived. I am looking forward in booking again soon.

Beautiful condo and great location!
This condo was very clean, stocked and updated to the max. We loved that across the street was Pier Park - walking distance to anything you wanted in shopping and food! Nice pools and walk out on the beach with a beautiful from view from the balcony as you drink your morning coffee...

Great Owner to work with
I will come back to this owner over and over again. The only owner that actually called me and didn't just send an answer to a question. Thrilled with his being prompt in answering all my questions and he was very accommodating. I can't wait for my next vacation!!

Cozy and Perfect
My husband and I arrived on a Wednesday night. The parking garage was very secure and the walk over from the garage was very safe and clean. We got to the condo with a little wait for the elevator. The condo was perfect . It’s everything you need. Even though a tropical depression came through on Friday, we got to spend a day on the beach Thursday. We met a lot of people. The walk to the beach is not beach buggy friendly but we managed. We waited Friday for the storm at Pier Park. We enjoyed Margarita Ville and Tootsie’s. FUN! When the storm came in, I enjoyed Netflix in the bedroom and he watched football in the living room. Thank you John for a wonderful trip! John was a great host and we will be back soon!

Sorry about the weather but so glad you enjoyed your stay nonetheless!
Clean, up-to-date, family-oriented, oceanfront condo.
Our second year in a row staying in this same condo and we hope to again next year! It is perfect for me and my husband, and our 8-year-old son loves the bunk beds! Very clean and modern and the owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. We highly recommend it!

Calypso 903 West
The stay at Caltpso 903 West was one of my favorite all time. Great amenities, great view, and great location. The days were spent at the beach with near perfect conditions. The nights were spent at Pier Park with all of the activities there just a short walk from the condo. I plan to make this location to be my primary preferred location for future vacations.

Few days of relaxing with grandkids
We walked into a freshly painted, updated condo. It was so nice and had the perfect beachy feel I love to spend time in.It had plenty of kitchen utensils etc for cooking. I had brought items with me usually are not found in kitchens. I never pulled out of back my items except for kitchen towels & drainer cloth.The walk over road from Parking garage to condo’s is a long one. Nothing can really be done about that as they are on opposite sides of street. Thankful for enclosure walk-thru. But luckily the dollie carts for luggage are in the parking garage.We will return to this condo again as we go to Panama City Beach each year.The owner, John is great! Was so much better renting from a person instead of VRBO or some other company.

End of Summer Fun
Cylapso Resort 2-903 This condo is not only beautiful but the view is breathtaking. This was our first trip of many to come to Panama City Beach, FL. This condo has all the comforts of home and decorated like the cover of a beach magazine. The bed in the master bedroom slept wonderful as well as the sleeper sofa. Our small family of 3 had so much fun and enjoyed the balcony sitting and enjoying morning coffee. We stayed at the resort except for 2 nights everything is ik n walking distance. What a way to start your day. The sandwich shop Fattys across the street was great. Having a washer and dryer was important and nice. We hope to to book again in 2020. The Owners have left nothing out. They were in contact from booking to checking in and making sure things were good. We had a wonderful stay here. The Shufords

Gorgeous & Relaxing
This unit at Calypso was very nice and clean! The owner was personable, available, & very accommodating!! The unit provided everything we needed and has a fantastic view of the gulf and the pier. We loved its closeness to Pier Park! Will go back again!!

Great location for family fun!
Had an amazing stay with my family at your condo. It was very spacious for our family of 5 and the view and location right by Pier Park made family fun and dinner easy. Really enjoyed being close to the pier and being within walking distance of so many activities. Such easy access to the beach and pool made it easy for my boys to enjoy themselves. Thanks again for everything.

Just what we needed.
We have stayed at the Calypso around 7 times so far, and this condo was just what we needed. John kept in touch from day 1 of booking and was available by phone with quick response if there were questions. We had no issues with the condo, the elevators, or the building. The only thing I would change is activating the parking pass in the early morning of arrival. The pass did not activate until 12 noon, and we arrived at 10:00 a.m.. If the parking pass was activated, we could have parked and went to the beach while the room was was being cleaned, but we had to ride around and find somewhere to eat before noon. We still got in there at noon and went to the beach until our room was ready though, but I think it needs to be activated earlier in the day. I really like the ability to set my own door key code for the condo, instead of having to remember someone else's long number. Overall, there were no issues and we really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely consider renting again in the future.

Eric,Thanks for the feedback and appreciate your comments on the parking passes. This system is new (spring '19) so still working out all the bugs. Next time let me know when you plan to arrive and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out that better fits your schedule.Regards,John
4th of July
We booked a stay during the Fourth of July 2019 and had a great time. We love the location because of the close proximity to pier park. The owner of the room stayed in contact in the weeks leading up to our stay and sent emails letting us know about events in the area. Was very pleased and would recommend a stay.

PCB Calypso 903W
What an amazing condo to stay in. All new upgrades and new bed. Close to everything. Walking distance to pier park. Nice pools, tiki bar and friendly staff. We will definitely be booking with John again. He is very easy to work with and quick to reply back with any questions or issues.

This unit is ocean front. Lots of shade on the balcony. Comfortable chairs. Within walking distance to Pier Park which is a shopping outdoor mall and many wonderful restaurants. A movie theater is also in this area. Owner is updating some furniture so it's going to be even better, but we were fine with what was there. John is very nice to work with and answers any questions very quickly. He manages this personally which is way better than most companies that we have dealt with. Would stay here again!!
