Calypso Villas by the Beach
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Calypso is a stunning oasis...you might miss...if you weren't looking for it. Nestled in a residential area...in the relatively safe, less hectic part of Ft. Lauderdale...it has everything you need. Nice rooms with kitchens. BBQ grills. Beautiful flowers and plants. A great, much needed swimming pool for those sweltering Florida days. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach...or 5 minutes the other way to take in the intracoastal from a restaurant on the water. And it's small. You'll get to know people if you're the least bit friendly.

Some great places for food nearby, Thasos (expensive Greek). Greek Islands Taverna...(less expensive). Nick's for Italian food, with a balcony for outdoor eating. Pizza Rustico for a slice or more. Many other options.

Walgreens is about a 10 minute walk. 7-11...open 24 hours for basics...about a 5 minute walk. Publix and Winn-Dixie are just a bit further away, but you would likely need a car or taxi to get your groceries home.

Book early to avoid dissapointment...there are lots of regulars who book for months and weeks at a time.

Been here twice, would definitely go again.

Room Tip: Speak to the owner...there are various sized rooms...from studios to suites.

Calypso is a little heaven in Fort Lauderdale. The rooms are all unique and beautifully decorated. The owner is a friendly lady and you can see she loves her customers. There were a lot of older folks renting for a couple months, and she spent time chatting with them, making sure everyone was happy... Also a few students and single working people, so it is a quite quiet and peaceful place. The beach is just a street away! And you are only about 30 minutes from South beach, Miam shopping, etc.! Make sure to book early, if you don't want to miss on staying at one of the greatest places in town!

Calypso is away from the hustle and bustle of Ft Lauderdale Beach, but still a very close drive up A1A. You can walk to beach and find a somewhat private patch to yourself.

Calypso is owned by a French Canadian expat and has a European feel; her father owns a similar property down the street. Some units have kitchenettes. Most of the guests are there for the longer haul, 2-8 weeks, so we felt a bit out of the micro social scene, but didn't spend too much time hanging out.

Not recommended for families.
