About Denise Bearden

We have owned this condo since 1994, and enjoyed the convenience of being on the ground floor so much, we bought another one! So we now have the two on the ground floor so we take our friends with us, and everyone still has privacy. We love meeting all the friendly people who vacation at the Sunbird year after year. Being on the ground floor makes it easy to make friends.

Denise Bearden purchased this condo in 1994

Why Denise Bearden chose Panama City Beach

We were totally spoiled on our first visit to a ground floor unit at Sunbird. The pool and the beach are right out the door! No waiting on elevators - we simply walked out the door to paradise, and once on the beach, we walked through the sand in our swimsuits to Pineapple Willy's beachside entrance for the most incredible drinks and amazing food. We never had to leave the beach or catch an elevator. We knew we had found the best location on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite thing is being able to walk up to Pineapple Willy's for a snack or drink from either the beach or the street. By far, though, the best benefit of our ground floor unit is that you are always right on the beach. No walking to the elevators and waiting. If your kids need to take a nap, you can still sit at the pool and be seconds away from checking on them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for allowing our family to stay at your condo. We had a fantastic time! Not to mention, the location of the condo was fabulous. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

Awesome Ground Floor Unit for the Family!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from PCB after staying in this great unit. It is ground floor so all you need to do is walk out the bad door and you are right at the pool. The pull out couch was great for our two older children. The owner really makes it easy to use. We only had one very minor problem and within minutes she was in contact with us and had everything sorted out! Definitely a must for couples with young children!

*The listing was very accurate regarding the layout and amenities

*Property was clean and well-maintained.

*Excellent customer service

*Would recommend to family and friends

Affordability and Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little getaway for my wife , daughter, and I. We enjoyed staying right on the beach. The beach chairs and parking pass included with the rental through the owner of the condo we rented was also a plus. Location wise we were just steps from Pineapple Willys, the Waffle House, convenience stores, and many other retail outlets. We also liked the code

controlled gates at the entrances and parking area rather than using the keyed cards. Overall it was a great stay and we would definately go back.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children, and I decided to take a few days to relax after a week long vacation at Disney World and this was the perfect place. This was our children's first trip to the beach and I really wanted something very close to both the beach and the pool. This Condo was the best location I could imagine. It truly is just steps away from the the pool and the beach. The condo has everything you need and then some. There are 2 beach chairs reserved on the private beach and the beach attendant is very helpful and has an awesome sense of humor. The beach was never very crowded in this location. Denise was very easy to communicate with and it was obvious that she wants all guests to be pleased with the condo and have a wonderful stay. We will definitely stay here in the future!

Inside property nice. Just walk out to the pool or beach. Minutes aways from Wal-Mart, resturants, and attractions. I would recommend this to anyone.

Owner is awesome!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to PCB all our lives for beach vacations, so we knew what to expect with the Sunbird and location in general.

We found the unit very clean and just the right size (might be small to some, but we spend our entire day on the beach and only use the unit to sleep, shower, and eat).

We did find that the sleeper sofa was completely uncomfortable and we had to purchase an air mattress while down there.

We, too, found that the air doesn't flow well in the master bedroom and got really hot the first night there. (Might opt for a box fan to place in the closet).

The kitchen had everything you need to prep for a couple meals while there and one night we had pizza and the next night we grilled burgers and hot dogs. I also baked brownies while there and found everything needed.

Denise responded very quickly to all questions we had! Pleasure speaking with you!

Of course everything might not be perfect, but this won't stop us from booking this unit again if available! The ground floor and paid for beach chairs were AWESOME perks!
