About Brian Fragassi

My name is Brian Fragassi. My wife Julie and I have Irish Twins- a boy and a girl, plus two rescued dogs- Curley (Chocolate Lab) and Travis (Mix). We live on the demarcation line between suburban and rural Illinois- well outside of Chicago. We have been involved in real estate on and off since the late 1990's. Julie enjoys management and oversight of many things (including me) and I enjoy all things construction and real estate. This Calypso Condo is our first venture into vacation real estate. Now we have a little bit of heaven to share with everyone else!

Brian Fragassi purchased this condo in 2015

First of all, the condo is exactly as presented on the photos. Everything was working and clean. The booking was very easy and fast. The owner takes excellent pride in ensuring the condo meet our needs at all time. Communication with owner was one of my best experience, always available and quick to respond.

Building amenities: Swimming pools were not too busy even during spring break. Most vacationers preferred the beach access. Parking is secure (and yes security staff do patrol....!) and there is plenty of parking. Elevators (3 on each wing) were fast despite being busy at time. Never had to wait more than one minute at the busiest time. The HOA office is open (Mon-Fri) and the HOA Manager is more than willing to assist you if needed.

Area: As my title stated Location, Location, Location...! The Calypso Resort is the closest building located near the City Pier and Pier Park. Aside from lots of shop (Walmart included...!) there is also lots of activities that are scheduled from time to time (I.e. Car Show, Boat Show, Carnival Mardi-Gras etc...). Across from the Calypso is PanHandle Helicopter tours (highly recommended).

Overall, very nice vacation. We stayed +2months and can't wait to return next year.

This was our second stay at this condo and as the last time we enjoyed it very much. The unit was clean and well maintained. Brian and Julie were very responsive and easy to deal with. If available we would definitely stay here again.

We were very impressed overall with the property. The location was great, parking was easy access, bartenders at the tiki bar were friendly, and the building was well-maintained and pleasing to the eye.

With a simple taxi ride from ECP Airport to Calypso, you can manage the rest of your stay on foot if desired. There is plenty to do within walking distance of this condo. Calypso Resort and Towers is less than a block from Pier Park- offering some of the area's best food, drink, and amusement- as well as live music. That said- driving isn't discouraged as there are plenty of places to visit along the Gulf Coast- so either with or without car works fine.
