The Sunbird condo is a smaller high rise that has maintained its appeal by keeping the complex clean, the grounds lush, and the beach and sand dunes pristine. The Sunbird complex is on the quiet end of Thomas drive where you can take a peaceful walk on sidewalks lined with more palm trees than you can count. The beach front here is some of the most beautiful on the coast and you will not find a more relaxed and serene place to spend your vacation!

I wanted to take a friend on a much needed getaway. I was able to make last minute arrangements with the owner, who was super helpful and accommodating. This condo was spotless, well appointed and had everything we needed. The unobstructed view was just perfect and beautiful. The mattress was a total dream, very comfy and the linens were really nice too. The couch made a great additional sleeping spot too and this one bedroom condo just turned out to be way better than I hoped. The owner was so awesome to work with and very quick to respond. Pack your bags and get way to this condo. you wont be disappointed.

Wonderful Trip for Labor Day

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an amazing few days at this condo over Labor Day! The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. It was extremely close to the beach and the pool. Jodie was extremely accommodating and did everything she could to make sure we had a great stay. She was very flexible with us when we needed to move our arrival date back a day. I would highly recommend this condo, and we will definitely be back!

Pictures don't do this place justice

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. This condo has been kept up beautifully and everything was very clean and in working order.

Linens (towels and bedding) looked brand new. When we were putting sheets on the sofa bed for our daughter, I mentioned to my wife that they were the nicest "spare" sheets I'd ever used (including our own).

The only thing that didn't work was the tub knob to switch from shower to bath and when I mentioned it, it was replaced the same day.

Jodie was wonderful and very understanding when I fudged up my move out day and was a little late in my checkout (sorry Jodie!). She did not penalize me on my deposit return and welcomed me back for another trip.


Beach front balcony view that looked eastward towards private single family houses instead of high rises. As a result, it is very private.

Very clean

Good (and available) customer service

Quiet-I didn't hear ANYONE around us when we were on the balcony or in the room. This unit is just above the pool (4th floor) but I didn't even hear much commotion from the pool.

Great value for the money.


Small-but we knew that going in, but I wouldn't recommend this for two couples...unless you're really close. Better for a small family where kids can sleep on sofa.

No storage - there are no closets except the bedroom so storage is at a minimum

The building itself could use a scrubbing (but this particular condo was very clean and new)

In short, I'd highly recommend this and would definitely stay again if we are ever in PCB again, as it is a great deal for the money we paid.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Took a little getaway down to the beach from up north. The condo was clean and beautifully maintained. The views are amazing and the location is even better. It is close to everything. My wife and I loved it. So did our two children. We would definitely stay here again. Top notch.

Great condo with awesome view of beach. This was our first time staying in Panama City and we loved it! Jodie was very helpful and informative with all of my questions. We enjoyed watching dolphins from our balcony every day. Many beach activities right on the beach so there was no need to go anywhere else for jet skis, paddle boards, parasailing, etc. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing beach vacation.

Absolutely love this condo! It has everything for an enjoyable and relaxing beach trip! The condo is on the fourth floor, so your view of the beach is amazing! The beautiful sunsets are picture perfect! Extremely clean, convenient to shopping and great restaurants and night life, all the conveniences of home at your fingertips! The queen-size bed is soooo comfortable, too! I will definitely return in the future.
