Stunning views of the bright blue water against the pure sugary white sand. Our guests rave about the beach front water views, 8 mile long coastline view, and the views of the golf course from this condo. You walk straight out to the beach from this unit. This is why the same guests come back to this unit year after year.
Imagine yourself relaxing on the beach with a good book and the white sand between your toes. If fun is what you're looking for, try renting a wave runner or flying high with the para-sailing.
The condo is clean and professionally decorated in a BEACH theme. It features Two TVs, and a Dolby Digital Pro Logic DVD HOME THEATER SYSTEM with an iPod docking station. It has a full Kitchen that is fully-equipped with microwave, dishwasher, blender, and coffee pot. It has 'easy to keep clean' ceramic tile throughout the entire condo.

If your going to have a beach vacation, the ideal spot is to be right on the water. The beach condo provides outstanding water views regardless if you are relaxing on the couch, sitting at the table eating your meals or enjoying the gulf breezes on the balcony. You have an unobstructed water view for eight miles down to the jetties.
The prime location to many fun attractions, shopping, restaurants and full size grocery story make this a great vacation spot. It is located right on the water, no streets to cross.
I would love to consider this condo my home away from home because that's how comfortable I felt during my vacation at this oasis. Sunbird is safe, secure and well equipped for families. I was amazed by how perfectly kept the grounds, pool and gardens were and the friendliness of the staff. Panama City Beach has so many wonderful tourist destinations but I found myself completely happy spending time at the beach, in the kid friendly pavilion/pool, or relaxing at my ocean front condo. This was our families first beach vacation and I'd have to say that all my expectations were greatly exceeded from the beauty of which Sunbird is situated to how friendly and helpful the condo owners were. There is no doubt in my mind that our family will return to Sunbird in the future! Thanks for the great memories! We appreciated your helping us with all your great suggestions in making our vacation a special one.
We came to Panama City for our honeymoon and stayed in the sunbird! We absolutely LOVED IT. So relaxing, beautiful, so many things to do & Great restrauants! The owners were wonderful and very helpful! We plan on coming back for sure and stay at the sunbird again! Best money we've ever spent!
My husband and I had a great vacation staying at the Sunbird.......right on the beach. We loved taking early morning walks on the beach. Pineapples Willy's is a two minute walk.....fun atmosphere and good food. Pier Park is also a fun place to visit for restaurants, shopping and entertainment. We can't wait for our next vacation.....we hope to come back soon!!
The view of the beach was simply beautiful from the balcony and from the condo from all points!! You can see the water from everywhere! The condo was decorated beautifully! The location was perfect just a minute away from Walmart and we walked next door for dinner to Pineapple Willey's which the food is wonderful!! The owners were so sweet and super attentive!! I will definitely be renting from them again and only them and will recommend them to ANYONE!!!
DO NOT HESITATE BOOK THIS CONDO!! Had to write a review to let everyone know how much we enjoyed our trip. I have been battling cancer for 5 years and our family has been to war and needed a break. My 2 sons 11 and 5 have never been on a vacation before and were so excited to see the Ocean. Let me say they were not let down. Laura was awesome every question i had she answered and returned calls and emails very quickly. Thank you so much for everything. My wife loved how You decorated the condo, it was very clean and relaxing. this was the best week we have had in years! I am truly blessed that I found such a great place for my family to go it was PERFECT. there were no issues with anything, i have passed the informtion on to my brother now he wants to vist! We cant wait till next year to return!! that is all my 11 year old has been talking about. Once again thank you from the bottom of my heart you do not know how important this was to me and my family. We are refreshed and ready to continue are journey with the plan to return next year.
This condo is just as described on the site. The location is a double-edged sword. Wonderful because of its proximity to Front Beach Road, Pineapple Willy's and the local Wal-Mart (and Wal-Mart liquors) for stocking the condo. The downside is the location in the building. The bedroom faces Thomas Drive so you get an amazing amount of noise at all hours of the morning (we were awakened by noise from 1-3AM every night of our 7-day stay). There is a monstrosity of a condo building across Thomas Drive from this building and every night there was yelling from the balconies of those condos (which face the bedroom window of this unit). In addition, it is right down the street from 2 of the biggest clubs on Thomas Drive (La Vela and Spinnaker) so the street noise at 1-3AM is insane! I suspect this would be better in the winter but if you are a light sleeper as I am, bring ear plugs!!
The condo does have fabulous views of the Gulf but if you want to see the sunset you'll have to leave your condo and go downstairs to the beach side of the building. Not a huge deal but if sunsets from your balcony are important, know that this location will not work. I have no idea how a previous reviewer "spent hours watching amazing sunsets from the balcony" as the unit's balcony faces east and the sunsets are blocked by the building itself. Perhaps she has x-ray vision :)
The internet (wi-fi) is also snail-paced slow. This was a bit frustrating as I had specifically written the owner stating we MUST have fast speed internet as my husband works remotely and needed the fast speed for work the week we were there. She assured me that there was fast speed wi-fi in the unit. The wi-fi was so slow we ended up using the hotspot on our phones (which of course, uses our data plan), as often I could not even get my email to load on the house wi-fi. In the owner's defense, maybe she doesn't realize that the wi-fi is as slow as it is and I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. Just be aware, if you need fast speed wi-fi for work or another reason, this property will not work for you.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The condo is decorated exceptionally well and the bed was very comfortable. Our son (19) joined us for 3 of the 7 days we were there and stated the sofa bed was very comfortable as well. The kitchen, while tiny, was workable with all the items you'll need to stay for a week (blender, toaster, etc). The beach chairs were a nice addition.
We LOVED the condo!! The place was everything the description said it was and more. We enjoyed shopping for and preparing our own meals with top quality cookware. I spent hours watching amazing sunsets from the balcony. We also enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning, sipping our coffee and watching the sunshine bring out the first walkers and sea birds! Then we'd head for the beach for our own morning walk! The view from the condo yields the "Emerald Coast" colors.
Other nice features are the close proximity to the elevators, swimming pools, and Pineapple Willy's next door with great food and drinks! Also, the location is great for quickly accessing main roads to anywhere you might want to go, including old Panama City's antique stores and eclectic restaurants. In historical St. Andrews there are neat shops and "Uncle Ernie's" restaurant, where the locals go.The seafood is delicious in all the restaurants! All you can eat seafood at Captain Jacks! I adore The Boatyard's chocolate-dipped key lime pie-on-a-stick on Grand Lagoon. Also, it's a treat to walk out on the pier that's west of the Shores of Panama to look at the fish below and even talk to the fishermen. If you do not find any seashells there is a great place west on 30 "Seashell by the Seashore" to buy them.
Highly recommended. I would lease this property again, simply because the owners were so helpful.
