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.

Denise Bearden purchased this condo in 2002

Why Denise Bearden chose Panama City Beach

To be smack-dab on the 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 beach side 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 where we wanted to be, contacted the owner, and made it ours to share with you. This is also one of the few properties with parking on the beach side.

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. This is also one of the few properties with parking on the beach side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a terrific time. The food at Firefly was wonderful. Whenever Alice says the food “ is to die for”, I’ve made brownie points. Thanks for the suggestion.

Loved our time at this place! It made our vacation awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location, comfortable, clean and It was a great pleasure working with Denise! We even got to meet her on the beach and she was just as great in person! Highly recommend a stay here - we're planning on booking again in the future.

Also, try the recommended restaurants like Saltwater Grill and Firefly!! Our favorites. The beach service was really nice and Marcy, the rep, was so friendly and helpful! Coffee on the deck in the morning was especially enjoyable, and the sunset was perfect and stunning! If you're looking for a place to unwind, de-stress and feel refreshed, look no further.

Great location !!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here and enjoyed the easily accessible location that allowed us to experience the beach and community around. The condo was clean and well equipped. We had no problems checking in or with anything in the condo. The chairs on the beach were a nice addition. Overall I recommend this rental.

Everything as described

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here May 7-14 2016. We loved it. Great location and very centrally located to stores, bars, and reataurants. The condo is ground floor, beachfront in the middle of the building. Being in the middle greatly decreases foot traffic on the patio in front of the condo. Its a quick walk down to the beach where you have your own chairs and umbrella. Its no problem if you need to run back to the room for something. The condo has everything you need. We really enjoyed it and would consider staying again.
