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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
DARK AND DIRTY!
Owner did a good job of equipping the house. From there DOWNHILL! Overgrown backyard and weeds growing through and all over rear deck. Very dirty! Very dark! Very depressing! I'd pass on this one until the owner gets their act together.
One word?? Magical
Perfect place for me and hubby and pups! Everything we needed! Thank u for sharing your great home!!! We will definitely be back!! Love the back porch!!!❤️❤️
Thank you, we look forward to your return visit!
Fantastic beach getaway
We had a great time at Calypso. The house was so clean and well stocked, looked exactly like it did online and was in a great location for restaurants and bars. Truly loved our stay, 10/10 would recommend.
Thank you Ashley, hope to see you again!
I'd Do It Again
Rented the property because we brought our dog & it checked all the boxes. Great neighborhood - quiet, walkable, seemed safe - important for late night dog walks. Great neighbors - quiet. Food sensitivity means we cooked in a lot and the well-Appointed fully functional kitchen was very appreciated. Everything clean including the grill. Some upgrades would be new broom, bed pillow for sleeping, and the couch ... Overall a most pleasent stay.
Thank you Diane, hope you will visit again soon!
Property lacked TLC in some areas
While the property and location fit our needs perfectly, we were disappointed in the cleanliness of the interior upon arrival. Realizing it was pet friendly, one of the reasons we chose it, we found the carpets still contained amounts of pet hair, and in the wooden floor areas, with the furniture that was biilt on legs and space underneath(including the bed), we found handful amounts of pet hair as well. The vacuum cleaner was packed with pet hair, smelly and needed to be emptied. Rather than contacting housekeeping, we spent time improving and maintaining these conditions.
On a positive note, management was attentive to other issues that arose regarding the furnace , smoke detectors, and any other questions we had.
Loved this house
Loved staying here. The house was well stocked and comfortable. The dog was happy with the yard and her daily walks through the neighborhood. Nice town.
Southport was listed as #1 "Happiest Seaside Town" by Coastal Living Magazine in June 2015! WOW!
Spring and early summer is nesting season for thousands of white ibis on Battery Island -- right across from Southport's waterfront park. You'll also see herons, egrets, oystercatchers, and the occasional gannet. Bird lover paradise!
Sidewalks & bike paths for all to enjoy. Walk to local shops and excellent restaurants. Fish from the pier. Watch the boat traffic and birds. Historic sites and parks abound.
For beach goers, - Oak Island is only about seven miles away. Both Fort Fisher Beach and Bald Head Island are a scenic ferry ride away. Nightlife, shopping and restaurants of Wilmington are only a 30-minute drive.
Boat access is convenient at the Southport Marina with boat slips available. The
Calypso has room to park your boat if daily launch is preferred.
