“A week in paradise”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Calypso Condo was paradise that felt like home. It had all the creature comforts of home with the look and feel of paradise. Between the 3 bed, 3 bath, washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen (even a cappuccino maker), beach towels, board games, etc. my family of 4 never wanted for anything. The décor of local art in the condo and the gorgeous view of the pool/beach were pleasant reminders that we were in paradise. The condo is located between Christiansted & Frederiksted, which made it easy to go anywhere.

In addition, our flights to St. Croix were cancelled without notice (not delayed or postponed). Barbara was so gracious to move our week from Thurs-Thurs to Fri-Fri so we didn't have to shorten our vacation.

We definitely plan to return to Calypso Condo and highly recommend it to anyone.

“Perfect location for active family”
Reviewed July 26, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great location, great amenities, pool and beach are awesome, snack bar at the pool (limited hours when we were here but still very convenient), grounds are well maintained and large enough for exercising (running or walking). Condo is well maintained, tastefully decorated, very well equipped kitchen. Most well equipped kitchen I have ever experienced at a rental. Loads of items to help make your stay more convenient (cooler, floaties, etc). This was a perfect spot for our family of 8. The only down side and it was a very small down side is that all 3 bathrooms are inside the bedrooms but not much of a negative for us. I was traveling with my adult children and they all loved it. Nice to be in a quiet area, you can walk to a local restaurant but other than that you need a car. All info provided by the owner was accurate and helpful.

Glad you could enjoy the floats and coolers. I try to keep the kitchen as fully stocked as we do here at home; for example, waffle maker, cappuccino maker, mixer, blender, etc.

“An Amazing vacation at the Perfect Location”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our recent stay at Calypso Condo was perfect in every way. The Condo is located on the Island of St Croix where accessibly to many great adventures are easily had.I was amazed the Condo was so well equipped, even had a grater for veggies and cheese! The pool and beach area are well maintained and the snack shack serves up some great homemade delights. The condo is a short walk to the Marina (which serves great food) and also to the Bay where Columbus didn't discover America.
We will most surely be returning as soon as possible.

We do try to maintain Calypso Condo (C-2) as a home away from home and encourage our guests to let us know if there is anything we could do or buy that would make their stay more comfortable. I, too, think the location is great. We look forward to having you back in the near future.

“Beautiful condo- exactly as pictured”
Reviewed April 16, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Condo was great, right on the beach with a nice pool. Check-in and out was super easy, we didn't have any problems. If we went back to St. Croix we would book this exact condo again.

“AMAZING: Prictures do not do it this Condo justice.”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I stayed at Calypso Condo February 5 - 19, 2017.
Located on the water at Gentle Winds, Calypso Condo totally exceeds your expectations. It's location is superb with 40 acres of beautifully manicured grounds complete with Par 3 golf course, tennis courts, basket ball court, and play areas for children. The beautiful pool is very large with flowering pots and plants everywhere. It is located adjacent to a gorgeous private sandy beach. There is also a snack shack that offers a delightful array of food and drinks daily.
Calypso Condo is furnished beautifully with views from all three spacious patios. From the minute you walk in the front door you feel like a guest in a lovely home.
It is fully equipped with everything you may need for a fabulous get away. We enjoyed several meals on the screened in patio off the living room. With all the amenities, one doesn't need to venture out, but if you do the sites and sounds of the island are close at hand.
The two weeks I spent at Calypso Condo were far to short.
I look forward to returning to this vacation paradise.

“A wonderful month at Calypso Condo on St. Croix.”
Reviewed February 15, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My husband and I stayed at Calypso Condo for the month of January. The whole experience was ideal. This condo is completely renovated and furnished as a lovely home not just a rental unit. It's immaculate and has everything needed for cooking and playing: snorkel equipment, tennis rackets, noodles and much more.
We had friends staying with us for a week and with two master bedrooms and baths there was great privacy. The third bedroom and bath would easily accommodate two more people.
Morning coffee on the upstairs master bedroom deck, breakfast and lunch on the veranda, and barbecues on the second upstairs deck were favorites. The views from each location were lovely. With the doors open and ceiling fans on we never felt the need to use the air-conditioning. The sun, temperature, trade winds, great local restaurants, salt water pool, and the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach complete this piece of paradise. We look forward to returning to Calypso Condo.
