About Steve Brown

We have been coming to Panama City Beach for several years now and love all the faces it has to offer. There is the noise and excitement of Spring Break and Thunder on the Beach, the family vacations in the Summer and our snowbird friends in the cooler months. We love Panama City Beach because it offers vacation opportunities for everyone, from tacky beach to upscale luxury, you can find it here.

We hope you will us to share a little bit of the Sunbird with you very soon.

As the owners of This property, having you as a very happy and pleased guest is very important to us. We have a 'cleanest condo guarantee'. We provide superior cleaning services and then, as the owners, go through the unit and double check it and make sure everything is perfect before your stay. If you need something during your stay, we will be taking your needs and we can asure you that no management company will care more about your needs than the OWNER.

Our rates include more amenities than any of the management companies. We provide a starter supply of toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, kleenex, dishwasher detergent, coffee, and bath soap for your stay!

Finally, the price we quote is what you will pay. We have no charges hidden in the 'fine print' and we won't 'surprise' you with additional charges when you get here.

Steve Brown purchased this condo in 2011

Why Steve Brown chose Panama City Beach

This is a very special unit to us. It has been our personal unit until very recently and it was the first unit we bought. It is clean, well maintained and has one of the best views anywhere in Panama City. Both the bedroom and living room have a spectacular view of the beach and the gulf. From the balcony, you can see St Andrews State Park at one end and Pinnacle Port at the other end.

What makes this condo unique

The Sunbird is a special special property. It's very family friendly but also loved by older couples. The location can't be beat. Near all the things you and your family will want to do. The unit is fully equipped so you can dine in and enjoy fresh seafood purchased near by or walk a few feet to Pineapple Willeys, Dee's Hangout or down the beach to Spinners. The pace at Sunbird affords you plenty of time around the pool, beach or simply enjoying the deck outside your unit with a cup of coffee or your favorite drink as the sunsets.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the condo! The kitchen had more than adequate cooking utensils and dishes. The view was amazing! Bed was very comfortable. The local restaurants were very good. I recommend Fattys, Eat My Pasty, Davids Sno Balls and Liza's Kitchen.

We encountered a few issues but nothing that impacted our vacation too much. 1) The trash shoot was repeatedly left open so we were often greeted with a dumpster smell as we came off the elevator. 2) The gates going on to the beach seemed to be malfunctioning. There were several guests including ourselves that had issues leaving the resort or coming back in. 3) The internet was slower than expected.

Overall, we had a great time and would like to visit again.

Great View!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. The pictures online do not do the room justice. It was very open, roomy and clean. The bedroom was big and the double closet was more than enough room for all our luggage for a family of 4. Really enjoyed being able to walk out on the balcony from the bedroom. We could see up and down the coast. Thanks for letting us stay here and making it any easy process from start to finish. We can't wait to do it again next year!

My family and I just spent a week in this room and it was great. It was just the right size for the four of us. The view was beautiful and interior was nice and updated.

Perfect in every way

We loved everything about this place! The decor, the location, the awesome view, the comfortable bed! Going to sleep with the sound of the crashing waves just melted the stress away!

Beautiful View

  • 3 of 5

Definitely a beautiful view! Perfect spot in Panama! Everything you would need in kitchen area is supplied. Could've been a little cleaner in bathroom. & WiFi is not great sometimes. Wasn't very happy about such a late check in time. All that aside I would consider staying again tho. :)

Owner's Response: Chasity, We certainly appreciate your bringing these concerns to our attention. Let me respond to each of these. First, we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our units and the cleaners leave a call back card on the counter of the breakfast bar should you be dissatisfied with anything in the condo. If you had contacted us I assure you we would have taken care of this immediately. Second, we are in process of updating all of our modems and access points for each of our units, unfortunately this condo had not been updated as of the date of your stay. The condominium complex does not offer WIFI in the rooms so we chose to put in secure internet for our guests. Last, the check in time is 4:00 P.M for all of our condos during the summer and is clearly stated in the contract. We are sorry you arrived so far in advance with small children as I know that can be challenging, but you were able to get on the property and access the beach and pool while you waited. We are beginning renovation on that unit next week and I do hope you come back and stay with us again as I believe you will not be disappointed.
