About Denise Bearden

Greetings beach bums! We are Rex and Denise Bearden. We love being near water whether it be the ocean, lake, or a swimming pool. We fell in love with Sunbird back in 1994 and in a giant leap of faith, made the decision that we could own a piece of paradise. Our dream is to be able to spend more time with our grown children and our two beautiful grandchildren. We love meeting the friendly people who vacation at the Sunbird year after year. Being on the ground floor makes it easy to make friends. We have owned and operated, Rex's Auto Service in Birmingham, Alabama for 36 years, and you will find us there most weekdays. You can also reach me at

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. This condo was not even for sale, but we scoped out the best location, contacted the owner, and made it ours to share with you.

What makes this condo unique

Definitely Pineapple Willy's next door! My favorite thing is being able to walk up to Pineapple Willy's for a snack or drink from the beach. 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.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo!. Easy to unload & get into condo because it is on ground floor. Absolutely beautiful view of the beach! Located right next to the pool and only steps to the beach. Decorated beautifully and extremely clean. Sofa bed was very comfortable to sleep on and the bedroom was comfortable as well. I would highly recommend this condo and will definitely be returning here again! Loved it!
