Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Sunbird - Sunbird

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located at Sunbird, this is a clean, well maintained, oceanfront condo. Overlooks soft, azure Gulf of Mexico! A few of the features include: sleeper sofa and loveseat, 52 inch ceiling fan in Bedroom, flat screen TV in bedroom, and living room with ports in front which make it easy to plug in X-Box or Video games, updated light fixtures, refrigerator (with icemaker) and dishwasher. Recently, we added granite countertop in the kitchen and new maple cabinets. In 2007 we replaced the carpet in the living room with ceramic tile--it really looks great! We added travertine to the bedroom in 2009.

While we manage the property directly (without a rental company to add their margin), we do use a weekly cleaning service.

Sunbird offers three well-maintained swimming pools! Especially nice. Come, enjoy warm-water temperatures and uncrowded, pristine beaches of early spring!

You may wonder why are prices are so low. The reason is simple, there is a glut of new condos on the market and we have one of the nicest condos in Panama City Beach. The condo is paid for, so we do not have to charge high rent to pay a mortgage. By offering below market rates, it ensures that we keep the condo full. However, because we are full most of the time, we are very selective as to who we rent to. We would rather not rent the unit, than to rent it to someone who may not respect the property.

We accept credit cards thru PayPal! Association specifies no singles under 25 years old and No Pets. This is a non-smoking unit. Please e-mail or telephone for more information.

Please know that we have one negative comment from several years ago. VRBO went to a new system and the date appears to be from 2010, but it was actually 2008. We have totally remodeled the condo since this gentleman left his comment and we found a much better cleaning company. It is the only negative feedback we have had in over 10 years.

About Randy Reid

We are SEC football fans and follow Dave Ramsey. Kids are out of college and we hope to use the condo much more than we have in the past.

Why Randy Reid chose Sunbird

We like Panama City because it is very family-friendly. The ocean is simply beautiful and restaurants are within walking distance. We typically eat breakfast and lunch in the condo, so having Walmart close is a benefit.

What makes this condo unique

Sunbird is a good mixture of people. While it is mainly a family resort, you will also see snowbirds from Canada and young professionals.

Big Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

As I read the most current reviews of this unit, I ask myself if these people stayed in the same place we did. I agree more with the information given in the review from 2010. The pictures and description did not match what we found upon arrival.

When we got to the condo, it had not been cleaned from the previous renters. I called the owner who got the cleaning person there right away and offered a partial refund. When we got back to the unit it seemed the only things done were making the bed and clean(?) towels no bath mat. This unit was filthy and in need of a total reno.

The furniture was old and dirty, sheets torn and thin from use as were the towels. The dishes provided were old the pots and pans warped and didn't sit well for cooking on the uneven stove. The broiler pan was rusty as was the stove which couldn't be opened completely. The "remodel" in the kitchen consisted of 3 different countertop materials(look close at the photos). The mattress on the bed needs replacing. I found gum stuck to the wall next to the bed and on the closet door. The owner approved our replacing the pillows which were awful. The vacuum was full of dirt so had to be cleaned before we used it and I am pretty sure our cleaning person hadn't used it. It took me 2 weeks to get rid of the bugs crawling on the bathroom sink. There was a black dust everywhere. If we went barefoot our feet were black by the end of the day. This dust was on all surfaces and am guessing it may be mold since the window frames in the place were black with mold. It scares me to think we were breathing this in.

It is not my intention to spite the owner. He was very good to work with but I want to bring attention to the fact that the recent reviews were very misleading and dishonest in my opinion.

This condo could be a very nice place. I saw other units in this complex that were beautiful but this one need a lot of work and a major cleaning. We will not stay in this unit again.

Owner's Response: We were disappointed in this review from our winter guest. A winter guest who eats 3 meals in the condo does have different expectations than the weekly guest who is their to enjoy the beach and the weather. They complained that the unit was dirty, so we immediately sent the maid back in for a 2nd cleaning--at our cost. We did give them a partial refund of the cleaning, but they wanted more money. They are right that we do not have a brand new set of matching dishes as we do find over the years people break dishes and replace with ones that are similar. We know nothing about black dust and it would have been nice if they let us know and we could have corrected while they were there. Our maid cannot find any evidence now of black dust. Yes, the vacuum cleaner probably did not get emptied as the maid bringer her own vacuum. They did complain about pillows and I told them to go buy whatever pillows they wanted and I reimbursed them. There are people that have the wrong expectation when renting a condo. Please know that Sunbird is about 30 years old and we work hard to keep our unit up to date, but if you are looking for a brand new condo, with new furniture, and new appliances and new dishes, then you will be disappointed with our unit. But, if you are looking for a beachfront property with three pools and an incredible view, that is clean and reasonably maintained, you will likely be happy with us. If you are the type of person that is looking to find fault and then demanding money back, please do not rent from us.

Great find!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in Mr. Reid's condo. The view is absolutely gorgeous and the staff are very friendly. The location is great, right in the middle of everything, and it fit the 3 of us comfortably. And the price was perfect! The process was a bit confusing so it would be much easier if there was a brief orientation document that explained all the gates (how the front gate code is also the beach gate code for example), which office to check in at, and the lock box rather than having to figure it out ourselves, sift through emails, or calling repeatedly as things come up. Emailing takes awhile to get answered but calling is always a sure bet and Mr. Reid is very easy to talk to. Overall we thought it was great for our trip and would definitely stay here again!

Great sister trip!!!

  • 4 of 5

My sister's and I had a great time while at the condo. The location was perfect and the view was amazing. Owner was nice and helpful with all needs and responded in a timely manner. Security gates were a bonus as well as security guards being visible at all times.

Vicki and Rick - Augusta, GA

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for the two of us. The ocean (gulf) view was great and the sunset was magnificent. Everything inside and outside of the condo was well maintained and clean. Plenty of eating and drinking within walking distance. We'll try to get this unit the next time we go down to PCB but if we can't get this one, we'll try for another unit at Birdsong. The communication with the owner was excellent!! The communication with the owner was excellent (did i already say that).

Owner's Response: We have been blessed with wonderful guests this year and Vicki and Rick were wonderful guests. We work with anyone that wants to rent, but we prefer people like Vicki and Rick. They have a few questions, we answer the questions quickly and promptly and life is good.

Condo gets the job done!!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is just what you need for the stay. I have seen more extravagant but they cost a lot more. One thing I didn't like was very poor water pressure.... Other than that it was a good place. Great view also!! The other gripe is the ridiculous parking lot rules...don't rent a scooter like everyone else, you can't park it here!!! They will tow it!!
