Favorite place

This is our third time staying here in a little over a year. I almost hate to leave a good review because I want Callista available when I want to come. The hosts are very accomidating. A beautiful home in a quiet subdivision. Everything you could think of is provided...beach towels, coolers, beach wagons, beach chairs, many beach toys. There are 2 washer and dryers in the house, an ice machine to fill coolers, 4 balconies with beautiful views, kayaks and so much more. The kitchen if fully stocked with anything you might need. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on. I am looking forward to my next stay there in July!

I am late in giving this review, but let me just tell whomever is looking into renting this property.....you will NOT be disappointed! This is one of the nicest places me and my family have ever stayed at! The house was wonderful, and I can't say enough about it! All of the windows, the lighting, the decorations, the furnished kitchen/ice maker, the porches/swings, the kayaks, the covered parking, the gated community and so much more!!!! 10 of us stayed in the home were extremely comfortable. Everyone had their own space and private bathrooms to go to at night, and the beds were AMAZING!!! I loved the sheets so much that I ordered me a set off of Amazon while we were there so I could have a little piece of the beach house with me when I went home, lol. Stephanie was so great to work with! Thank you guys so much for sharing a little piece of your paradise with us! We will definitely be back!

Our family meet at this beautiful property for Spring break 2022. We made so many memories and felt so at home during our stay. In fact on our way back to Illinois, we booked our 2023 Spring break trip. I can’t Even begin to tell you how wonderfully equipped this home is. Everything we could have possibly wanted our needed was available and right at our fingertips. Giving Stephanie and Justin a 5+ stars for allowing us to rent this gem.

I love staying at Callista when visiting Gulf Shores. The gated community is quiet and safe with the most beautiful views of the gulf & lagoon. Each bedroom has a private bathroom & the kitchen is fully stocked, with an ice maker no less!! Private beach access & a pool & tennis court all within the subdivision. Can’t wait to return!

Most amazing beach house

Talk about luxury!
We have stayed here a couple of times and each time love it more. I feel completely safe with two young children in this gated community. Amazing pool, enjoyable tennis courts, and the best beach access around. I can not decide which deck I love to rest on more with my morning coffee. They remembered everything to make this an amazing escape. I feel so at home. The house is very well organized and decorated. Absolutely no clutter or stress. Those are probably the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Each room feels like a master bedroom with all the space and bathrooms. Did I mention the amazing decks everywhere? Amazing!
Ice machine was super handy to make snacks and drinks for the beach. The owners remember everything down to the beach towels, wagons, toys, shower space, place to hang your clothes, and more! There is a TV in every room. I can not say enough. The owners are fantastic that I forget I don’t own it myself! Thank you for another amazing stay. Can’t wait to go back!

Wonderful place to stay!

We stayed at Callista for 9 days and loved every minute of it. We had our adult kids and grandkids staying with us and there was plenty of room. Beds are nice, all the extras like wagons, beach toys, beach chairs were great. Kayaks were great too. Everyone had plenty to do...fishing, playing in the pool, and on the beach and kayaking. We also saw lots of dolphins while on the beach. The fact that you can just walk to the beach and catch fish was great. We all had a really good time. The kitchen has everything we needed to make our Thanksgiving meal!!

We brought my sister, my son and daughter-in-law and 2 grandkids down for a week stay at Callista. Justin and Steph are such caring hosts. They provide everything you could possibly need. The place is clean and located in a quiet gated community. I LOVE that there are 2 washer and dryers and an ice machine perfect for filling the coolers for the beach. The swings on the big balcony were hits with the grandkids and the adults as well.
Already have Callista booked for a week in July for us and all our kids and grandkids. Definitely will keep coming back here.

2021 Beach Vacation

We took our Daughter and Grandchildren along to a beach vacation and stayed at Callista. The house was very spacious, and we enjoyed the various porches...the swings were a favorite by all. The owners have done an excellent job of designing and decorating this fabulous vacation home. Many items are conveniently supplied for a day at the beach.
Thanks Justin and Stephanie!
