About Denise

My husband and I have vacationed at Panama City Beach for years. We will be delighted to have you as our guest to discover the beauty of 'The World's Most Beautiful Beaches'.

Denise purchased this condo in 2013

Why Denise chose Panama City Beach

We love the Sunbird because it is in the center of everything. With 500 feet of beach front space, you have plenty of space. At some of the large condo developments the building is large, but the beach frontage is low. Guest are packed into a small area. Not at the Sunbird, there is plenty of beach space to play on.

With the unique floor plans at the Sunbird, it feels like you are on a cruise ship. Every window is a delightful view of the ocean. The balconies are positioned so you are not staring directly at another room, you are facing out to sea.

What makes this condo unique

Many attractions and activities are within easy walking distance. Directly next door is the word famous Pineapple Willy's restaurant. Numerous restaurants are within walking distance. Even Club LaVela (MTV Spring Break Live Broadcast) is right up the street. Across the street and around the corner is Wal-Mart. You can easily park your car and not need it for days.

Great property, great beach, fantastic vacation

  • 4 of 5

Condo was perfect and owner was very responsive to my questions. The location was ideal as it is within walking distance to many attractions and retail stores. Great sand beach to spend time enjoying the ocean waters. Only negative I can say is with the HOA and their parking fees/restrictions. Had friends come by for a day and needed to pay $21.50 for a parking pass for them. Same fee as my pass which was good for the week.

Everything at Vitamin Sea was even better than we imagined! The views from every angle in the condo were amazing! We loved our stay and will hopefully be back very soon! Thanks Denise for everything!

This condo was well equipped and in a great location!

We had 4 people in this condo. The layout is more suitable for 2. It was well equipped with everything you would need. Thanks for the hospitality!

Owner's Response: When the reservation was made, you asked about bringing 2 grandchildren. I advised the condo was one bedroom with a king sized bed and queen sized sofa sleeper in the living room. I was very disappointed when you left. My housekeeper called and sent pictures of the towel bar torn off the bathroom wall, a knob had been broken off our entertainment center and a decorative insert on the knob is missing and a pillow had blood stains. I am very thankful that all of our other guest treat Vitamin Sea gently and with respect. An update, on my arrival at the condo after your departure all batteries were missing from every remote. The backs were off the remote controls for the TV, we had to search for them. The non skid stickers in the bathtub had been peeled off and the housekeeper informed me that after soaking 2 towels, 3 bath cloths and the bath mat over night in bleach, she could not get them clean.

Owner's Response: Please do come back to Vitamin Sea! We consider it the highest compliment when our guest return year after year. Yes! Those views are amazing; sweeping ocean vistas as far you can see. Sandy is awesome, she keeps that condo spotless. We couldn't do it without her. Please feel free to leave her a note, she loves it so much when the guest let her know they appreciated a clean condo.

Awesome, updated condo! Great views!

  • 5 of 5

If you are questioning whether or not to book this condo, DO IT! The condo was updated and clean. We loved the kitchen! It was stocked with almost anything you would need in order to cook a meal. The bed was super comfy & I didn't wake up at all during the middle of the night while we were there. There is a TV in the living area and the bedroom. Loved having the wifi.

The location of the condo is in the perfect spot, you can literally walk to Pineapple Willy's. Everything else you need is a mile or less away. Denise gives you complimentary beach chairs & umbrella, which was just awesome. That made our days at the beach super stress free because we didn't have to carry a bunch of chairs and umbrellas down to the beach with us.

We stayed in the time frame Tropical Storm/Hurricane Hermine came through. Denise offered for us to leave a few days ahead of the storm, and refund us for the nights we didn't stay. I thought that was extremely kind of her and she called to check up on us plenty of times. We will definitely be coming back!! I miss it already!

Owner's Response: Yes, the amazing thing about The Sunbird is even though you are in the middle of everything, you do not feel crowded. Nightlife, restaurants, shopping and grocery stores are right outside the door. Yet, when you are on the property or on the beach, you do not feel the bustle nor the crowds. We love it. Renovating the condo was a labor of love, we try to stock the condo exactly as if we are using it ourselves. The mattress is comfortable, I hate to go on vacation to find a cheap flimsy mattress. As for Hermine; we always put the safety of our guest first. When I called you about leaving, the weather forecast was for Hermine to be a direct hit on the Panama City Beach area. Even though Hermine was not a strong wind event, the rain was relentless. Since coastal areas flood easily, we wanted to be sure you were safe. I hope on your next visit, the weather stays beautiful the entire time.
