About Calypso Rentals

We have been renting this house for ten years...we have oodles of great reviews!

Calypso Rentals purchased this house in 2006

Why Calypso Rentals chose Southport

For your pets, we have a fully fenced back yard.

Returning guests love the ease of getting around town -- a bike ride away. Shops, restaurants, post office, banks...all right here. And its quiet, so you can hear the birds.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at Calypso. We wish we could've stayed longer. The house was the perfect "home away from home" for a weekend girly get-away! We will definitely be returning to Calypso for our next Southport adventure.

We loved it. Had a great week.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property. Dogs loved the fenced yard. Loved the small things like the condiments left so we did not have to purchase. Thanks for replacing the mattresses. They were Devine! So close to downtown with our bikes, and walked our dogs in nearby park. Great week!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Southport! Calypso was beautiful and cozy. The home was clean, nicely decorated and very well equipped. The owners included an extra touch or two. There was a basket of goodies to eat, which was wonderful as we got in late and our 5year old was hungry and ready to snack as soon as we arrived. There was even some goodies for our dogs!
