About Denise Bearden

Greetings beach bums! We are Rex and Denise Bearden. We love being near water whether it be the ocean, lake, or a swimming pool. We fell in love with Sunbird back in 1994 and in a giant leap of faith, made the decision that we could own a piece of paradise. Our dream is to be able to spend more time with our grown children and our two beautiful grandchildren. We love meeting the friendly people who vacation at the Sunbird year after year. Being on the ground floor makes it easy to make friends. We have owned and operated, Rex's Auto Service in Birmingham, Alabama for 36 years, and you will find us there most weekdays. You can also reach me at

Denise Bearden purchased this condo in 1994

Why Denise Bearden chose Florida North West

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. This condo was not even for sale, but we scoped out the best location, contacted the owner, and made it ours to share with you.

What makes this condo unique

Definitely Pineapple Willy's next door! My favorite thing is being able to walk up to Pineapple Willy's for a snack or drink from the beach. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for allowing our family to stay at your condo. We had a fantastic time! Not to mention, the location of the condo was fabulous. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

Felt Like Home/Comfortable, Clean, Ground Floor Tastefully Decorated Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our 48th anniversary at Denise & Rex's ground floor condo and we had a wonderful time! It was beautifully decorated in a nautical theme. The furniture was very comfortable and the condo was exceptionally clean. It was located next to the main pool and had a large patio space. The beach chairs and umbrella on the beach were included which is a BIG plus. They had equipped the condo with all the comforts of home including a hair dryer. We have stayed in at least 5 condos at Sunbird and this condo by far was our favorite. We will definitely be booking with them again. Denise was so easy to work with to book the condo and the paperwork was streamline. Thank you again for letting us stay in your great condo!

Absolutely Perfect! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the best place I have ever stayed on the beach! The condo is very clean, comfortable and decorated with simple elegance. The view from this particular ground floor condo is amazing. We loved the expansive patio area, the wonderful beach service, and the ability to work with an owner to bypass an on-site check in. It was just like visiting my own place on the beach! We never got back in the car! The Wharf breakfast buffet was across the street and Pineapple Willy's right next door on the beach! Fun thing to do: connect with friends at home with the Pineapple Willy's webcam on the beach!

Amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first PCB vacation and miss it so much! The condo was perfect for our family. We have two kids (3 & 5) and the location on the bottom floor with the pool right next to us was amazing. The beach is so close and was easy to go back and forth if we forgot something or just to grab lunch and take it back to the beach. The condo was clean and if anything came up Denise was a text or phone call away. Communication was great and check-in/check-out was smooth and clear.

Since you're on the bottom floor and right next to the pool there will be lots of people passing the condo but it didn't bother us at all. We put the kids in the bedroom and we slept on the sofa bed. It's not the most comfortable bed but what sofa bed is? Those weren't even issues but I always appreciate small details when reading reviews to better prepare myself.

We seriously couldn't have asked for more. Ground floor, pool and beach just feet away! BOOK NOW!

Owner's Response: Jess, thank you for all the kind words. I love your intelligent comment about sofa beds, and folks walking by not being an issue. We've also given our kids the super comfy bed in the bedroom and taken the sofa bed, and that's why we got the best Tempurpedic mattress available! I look forward to your return visit. Thank you again for choosing my condo!

Outstanding!!! Will be back.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to PCB and loved it. This condo is amazing. It is literally steps from the beach, pool, or the parking lot. Denise made this so incredibly easy and streamlined, I can't think of anyway to improve on it. The condo itself was very clean and well stocked. There was plenty of room for our family of four. We plan on staying here again next year!
