About Iris Huisman-Thorpe

We are James and Iris from Cumming, GA. We lived in Panama City for almost 10 years, and love coming back to the Gulf Coast for vacations. In 2015, we managed to buy a small piece of paradise at Calypso, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We want to make you as comfortable as we like to be on our family vacations!

Iris Huisman-Thorpe purchased this condo in 2015

Why Iris Huisman-Thorpe chose North West Florida

Location, location, location. Being within walking Distance of Pier Park is a huge advantage. It offers shopping and dining options for a variety of tastes. The condo is also ideally located for sporting events at Frank Brown Park, and only a short drive from the airport too. Of course, being right on the Gulf helps too - there is nothing quite like a sunset over the Gulf to help you totally unwind.

What makes this condo unique

NO WAITING AT A RENTAL DESK! GO STRAIGHT UP AND OPEN THE DOOR TO PARADISE! The 6th floor offers LESS TIME WAITING ON ELEVATORS, spectacular views and privacy - but you can still keep an eye on your family at the pool or beach.

Overall it was a fine stay.

  • 4 of 5

We overall had a great stay. Being on the 6th floor was nice. Only giving 4 stars because the Bed was kinda hard for our taste. Would be nicer to have a few more towels so dnt hve to do laundry as quickly on your vacation. Also, I didn't appreciate that there are 2 light bulbs out and 1 light bulb completely missing in room... so we had to adjust that. Lastly, the cleaning lady needed to clean the large bedroom mirror which hadn't been cleaned when we arrived. It was nice tho to have some free using beach items in the closet. Overall a good stay for the price and just minimal things to be fixed.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year and were so happy with our stay we booked again this year. The condo is clean, well appointed, comfortable, and roomy enough that 3 adults and a 5-year old never felt cramped. With a balcony facing the Gulf, beautiful swimming pools, easy access to the beach, and only a few blocks from the pier, restaurants, and shopping, the Calypso is an ideal place to stay! I also appreciate being able to communicate directly the owner of this condo, who is pleasant and responsive.

Great condo! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was super clean upon arrival! Sixth floor made for a great view and not such a long wait for the elevators. Loved the convenience to Pier Park, as it's just a few minutes walk. Only wished we could've stayed longer!

Great clean condo, in good location

  • 4 of 5

This unit was very clean and fully stocked with linens and dishes. Great location close to Pier Park. Easily walk to dinner and shopping. The pool area is also very nice and clean. The only negative has nothing to do with the unit itself. I found the Calypso beachfront to be overcrowded with rental chairs. The photos show two rows, but there are actually four full rows of chairs, plus the rental company puts up their chairs along the beachfront too. You will have to get up very early to get a spot if you don't want to pay for it.

Overall very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

The room was very clean and just like described. Only complaint was that the vertical blinds were missing about 5 blinds, so whoever slept on the pullout couch was not able to sleep in due to the sun coming through the blinds. My husband found 2 blinds behind the couch and "fixed" those two and that did help. The only other concern is that if you want someone to start dishes and laundry, you should leave one dishwasher pod and enough detergent to do this. Sometimes people do not take these things on vacation. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
