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
