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, 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!

Perfect Beach Rental Getaway

Justin and Steph’s home is absolutely perfect for a beach getaway. Their home is beautifully decorated, very clean/well maintained, stocked with everything you need from kitchenware to beach toys/accessories to bathroom essentials and everything in between. And you cannot beat the location! It is absolutely PERFECT! Only steps away from the community pool and private beach (both of which were never busy) and away from the busy tourist district but still convenient to restaurants and shopping. Justin and Steph were incredibly welcoming and were constantly available prior and during our trip with recommendations and accommodations. Highly recommend for your Gulf Shores vacation!

Summer Vacation 2021

Callista will not disappoint! The house has a wonderful floor plan and is clean! The ice machine provided ample ice for all our cooler needs. The beach and pool are less than a five minute casual walk. Plenty of beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach toys with two wagons for easy hauling. They also provide kayak’s and tennis equipment. At the end of the day enjoy swinging on the balcony. Highly recommended, don’t miss out!

Wonderful house

Callista is a beautiful house in a perfect quiet gated area that has everything you will ever need. The private beach, to community pool, to the basketball court, and being so close to the restaurants and mini golf courses yet so far away from the hustle and bustle of all the other vacationers. It was just perfect for our family. Justin and Stephanie are amazing hosts that provide wonderful hospitality. We will for sure be back in the years to come to make many more memories!
