                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1994

                          About the owner: We have owned this condo since 1994, and enjoyed the convenience of being on the ground floor so much, we bought another one! So we now have the two on the ground floor so we take our friends with us, and everyone still has privacy. We love meeting all the friendly people who vacation at the Sunbird year after year. Being on the ground floor makes it easy to make friends.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sunbird:
                          We were totally spoiled on our first visit to a ground floor unit at Sunbird. The pool and the beach are right out the door! No waiting on elevators - we simply walked out the door to paradise, and once on the beach, we walked through the sand in our swimsuits to Pineapple Willy's beachside entrance for the most incredible drinks and amazing food. We never had to leave the beach or catch an elevator. We knew we had found the best location on the beach.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          My favorite thing is being able to walk up to Pineapple Willy's for a snack or drink from either the beach or the street. By far, though, the best benefit of our ground floor unit is that you are always right on the beach. No walking to the elevators and waiting. If your kids need to take a nap, you can still sit at the pool and be seconds away from checking on them.
