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 Florida Panhandle

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.

Perfectly Relaxing As Always!

  • 5 of 5

This is the only condo we have ever stayed in while at Sunbird because we figured why look at another when this one is perfect for the 2 of us! From the super comfy bed to the relaxing decor, to the beach service that's included, you can't ask for a better stay. The location is the best with Pineapple Willies next door, grocery shopping very close by, and an easy short drive to our favorite restaurants.

When we walk in this condo we actually feel like we have arrived home, and when we leave we are so rested and relaxed. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. It is the highest compliment we can receive for our guest to feel like they are returning home. My husband and I strive to make "Vitamin Sea" a relaxing escape from the demands of every day life. We get so many compliments on the mattress! It is so comfortable, we love it, too. The Sunbird is a great location. Even though you are near the middle of everything, you still have plenty of beach space. Plus, those views! We can't wait to have you back next year!

The condo was great. All the little details the owner takes care of makes for a lasting impression!

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was wonderful. The location couldn't be beat and the views were amazing. The owner leaves you with everything you need to get started and then some. The kitchen has been the best stocked of all condos I've ever rented. Tupperware, crockpot, pizza pan and cutter... the list goes on. We didn't want for anything. I would stay again and again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We try very hard to furnish and stock our condo exactly the way we would if we were using it ourselves. The little things really do mean a lot, like having a box of trash bags, basic spices, or decent cook ware. Especially for families, a crock pot at the beach is so handy. You can throw a meal into a crock pot that morning, play on the beach all day and have a delicious meal that night. Like us, most people work hard for their money, so we try to give our guest the very best experience possible. Those views are fantastic. I could sit in the recliner all day and look out the window if the beach wasn't calling my name. We look forward to having you return to "Vitamin Sea" year after year. We consider that the highest compliment we can receive.

Overall a great vacation

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sandy does a fabulous job of cleaning the condo. We constantly hear, "this is the first beach condo I have stayed in that did not have a gritty floor from the sand" or " there is no musty smell when you open the door; it smells fresh" and " that mattress sleeps so good". The location is great! We are right where Thomas Drive and Front Beach Road meet. In the middle of everything, but the beach is not crowded due to the Sunbird being a low rise complex with lots of beach space. The best of everything. *Update* We strive to give all of our guest excellent vacation accommodations. So, I normally contact any guest that does not give us a 5 star rating to see what needs to be improved. This guest stated that when they left the bathroom door open to take a shower, the smoke alarm in the living room directly above the bathroom door would go off. The alarm system is hardwired into the building just like the plumbing and electrical service. We have no input into the location. However, there is a second door that leads into the bedroom that can be left open without setting an alarm off, plus the bathroom has an exhaust vent fan to assist in removing steam. from the condo. If the bathroom seems stuffy to you, please trying taking those steps.

Wonderful...a wonderful month!!

  • 5 of 5

Picture a palm tree setting....throughout your condo! Picture a cozy, inviting space for your dining and living area with a view of the Gulf! Picture waking up in the morning to the sound of the waves hitting the sand and the sight of this out your bedroom sliding glass doors! Picture yourself having a cute little space for light cooking or even for making a batch of cookies...also as you look out the living room sliding doors and watch the sunset! Now picture yourself walking along your beach, picking up shells, and enjoying the peace and quiet of your Panama City Beach experience! This was our experience in February and we can't wait to return! Thank you Denise for providing this experience for us!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Those are all the reasons we fell in love with our condo, Vitamin Sea. We love those view, the sunsets, the fabulous location and the beautiful gulf beaches. The palm tree decor does not really show in the pictures, but what is more beachy than palm trees and ocean? Thankfully we have both! We are looking forward to your next visit.

I frequently emails from owners who notice their is no sandy grit on the floors or no musty smell in the condo. We are blessed with incredible beach views and sunset views every day. Since you have fallen in love with "Vitamin Sea" we hope you return often.
