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 dab316@hotmail.com

Denise Bearden purchased this condo in 2002

Why Denise Bearden chose Florida North West

To be smack-dab on the beach! 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 beach side 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 where we wanted to be, contacted the owner, and made it ours to share with you. This is also one of the few properties with parking on the beach side.

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. This is also one of the few properties with parking on the beach side.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a terrific time. The food at Firefly was wonderful. Whenever Alice says the food “ is to die for”, I’ve made brownie points. Thanks for the suggestion.

Loved our time at this place! It made our vacation awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location, comfortable, clean and It was a great pleasure working with Denise! We even got to meet her on the beach and she was just as great in person! Highly recommend a stay here - we're planning on booking again in the future.

Also, try the recommended restaurants like Saltwater Grill and Firefly!! Our favorites. The beach service was really nice and Marcy, the rep, was so friendly and helpful! Coffee on the deck in the morning was especially enjoyable, and the sunset was perfect and stunning! If you're looking for a place to unwind, de-stress and feel refreshed, look no further.

Just Right

  • 4 of 5

The condo was just right for us. We loved being able to stay on the ground level with such a great view. It was very clean, beautifully decorated & enough space to be able to enjoy our stay, & loved having the beach chairs which was a Great plus!!!. We loved having the gated & guarded surroundings. The only issue was the air conditioning was out when we got there but they did get us a portable unit & had cooled before we went to bed. They had the air fixed sometime in the night. I did talk to the owner & they hated that it was out & did get things done to make us comfortable. I do think it was out again Thurs. night before we left so they may want to check it out. We would love to stay there again next year but we are planning on bringing the family so we would need more rooms with more bedrooms & bathrooms. We had a great time, Thank you!

Owner's Response: Norma, thanks for such a nice review! I am so happy that you loved the ground floor location, the view, the security and the beach chairs! I do have a meticulous housekeeper who continues to gain "very clean" comments, so I will pass this on to her as well. I will also thank Sunbird maintenance for stepping in quickly to provide the portable unit while we were experiencing that building-wide A/C crisis.

Amazing Beachfront Condo Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at this beautiful clean beachfront condo. Great location in PCB. Everything was exactly as described in VRBO. Pineapple Willy's is a hop-skip and a jump away (but it's not loud)....and cushioned beach chairs with an umbrella are 50 yds off the back deck...We will be back!!!
