It's just two years new,and a bright, cheery and colorful escape from the ordinary. The brochures say Calypso will rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. I say it just makes you happy. Whether you’re strolling along our sugar white sand private beach or enjoying the plentiful resort amenities you’ll realize that you little slice of paradise has a name and it's Calypso.
Here's the scoop about your condo.
Man is this place cool. You're really going to enjoy your condo. It's got all the bells and whistles! And there's plenty of room for your stuff. But that's only the beginning. The first thing you'll notice is that this is a really upscale place. All decked out for a great vacation. Lot’s of neat stuff. Let me tell you about it.
The LIVING ROOM is a gathering place for everyone that features a comfortable sofa that opens into a queen sleeper. It’s a neat sectional that’ll seat 6 comfortably. There’s really neat decorator lamps that create a warm glow in the room. A great place to kick back and watch the 35” flat screen TV. There's surround sound too! Can you dig it?!? The remote that can switch channels from anywhere in the room. And there’s a DVD so you can play your favorite movies. Or if you like, surf the web on the high speed wireless internet that’s available. But why would you want to do that when you can look out at a specatular view of the beach and the gulf. Floor to ceiling sliding doors. How about that!?!
The MASTER BEDROOM features luxurious king size bed and private bath. This room is something else. The bed’s really comfortable. I checked it out. Almost fell asleep. There’s great art on the walls. An oversize dresser. Another flat panel TV with all the channels. There’s plenty of space to store your beachwear in the spacious walk-in closets. You can even surf the net from in here on the wireless. You’re really going to enjoy zoning out in here after a day of “beaching.” Here’s the cool part. You’ve got floor to ceiling sliding doors for an incredible view from here!
The SECOND MASTER is equally well appointed with a comfortable King size bed and plenty of space for everything you’ve brought to the beach. This large bedroom is a great hideaway because it not only offers a place to catch up on your favorite book. And you can log on to the wireless from here too! This bedroom has an adjacent oversize bath with tub and shower. It’s tiled so that cleaning up is easy.
The BUNK Room is a kid friendly suite that allows plenty of room for sleeping and playing with it's own TV.
The open gourmet KITCHEN area looks out over the water and features beautiful granite counter tops with attractive cabinets and appliances. It’s fully stocked so no matter whether you’re cooking your specialty or just fixing grill cheese sandwiches you’ve got everything you need to please the family. Bar seating makes it easy for everyone to grab a quick snack or a full meal.
The DINING AREA comfortable comfortably seats six, so the family can share meals and trade their favorite part of their days at the beach.
The LAUNDRY makes keeping everyone in clean clothes a breeze.
These bedrooms along with a pull out sleeper sofa in the living room allow the unit to sleep 8 comfortably including 2 complete baths.
Please note: 3 nite minimum stay is required; 7 nites during high season.

Overall it was very good. Room was clean but very bland looking. Could use some new paint and carpet or tile would be even better. Balcony furniture was overused and could be replaced. Loved the location close to pier park. Check in day was very conjested!!
For the most part we enjoyed our trip to PCB. The condo is in a great location (within walking distance of Pier Park,) and was larger than we expected. The pools were great and the beach very convenient. However, the condo was very dirty. We noticed cheetos all over the floor when we arrived. There was sand all over the coffee table. A bottle of windex sitting out, but looked as though it hadn't been used. The bottom bunk bed was broken. The shower curtains were covered in mold, and the master bath's shower was clogged and the tub immediately filled with water. We also noticed dust and dirt all over everything. Several of the chairs outside were torn. For the price we paid to stay for the week, we expected the condo to be in better condition.

This is a great place to stay. Close to the show,shopping,restaurants.The ocean views and beautiful sunsets are glorius. We are in a privately owned condo and this is our 7th year in the same one. Our owners and staff who look after it are great and quick to respond to our needs. The only thing that makes me upset is that we can't get a cart to bing in groceries from the door in front of the East door. We have to go to the third floor, get a cart, cartit back the front door unload, take it up to the twelveth floor, unload groceries and take it back to the third floor, cross over the bridge and put it back. We are nearly 70 and this is just too hard. Although we can get a cart at the office they are never any there when we need tham and after 5:00 the office is locked up so we are out of luck. Try carying 2 cases of water and 7 bags of groceries up by hand! This is a bummer. Our friends at other condos around here have carts right in front of their entrance doors or beside their elevators. Makes much more sense right? We are older and need some help. Please give us the help we need! Last night two cart were left in the elevator and we couldn't get in to go up. My husband graciously took them back to the third floor. Wouldn't you know it we had no groceries with us at that time. Can't win for trying.
Poor Cleaning Crew and lax cleaning policies. Coffee pot was bla

Owner of unit didn't obviously care about condition and probably never stayed there...just a unit to make money. Pictures online were probably five years ago and carpet filthy. We wore our sandals all the time since floor so dirty.

We enjoyed our stay at Calypso. This was a time to relax between semesters for my daughter and that is exactly what we did. We just had a few issues with unit maintenance and cleanliness (pots and pans) but nothing that effected our stay. BBG would have addressed our issues immediately but we did not want to deal with it so they planned to address it upon our departure. So, if you follow us in this unit you should have new pots and pans and find all the light bulbs working etc.
The location is great. We parked our car at the beginning of the week and did not use it until the end. Walking to Pier Park is wonderful and so pleasant to walk back after a wonderful dinner.
We will be back!

I haave stayed in much nicer decorated and much cleaner condos, although this stay was much better than last time I booked with Best Beach Getaways(I thought I would give you another try). The bed linens were not the right size it seems they tried to make a queen size fitted sheet fit a king size bed also the comforter on the second bedreeom was not the right size would not fit bed at all. The pool was not heated as stated on the advertisement very dissapointed in that.I have rented with personal owners the last two times as I will do in the future since I come to PCB at least 4 times a year, I may come back to your ads but I will still advise my friends to go to VRBO and get in touch with condos owners and leave the middle man out i feel you get more truth about what to expect about the resort.
