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 Panama City Beach Area

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!

Owner's Response: Oh my, this is why I tell my guest call me AS SOON as you find anything wrong. Since Internet is not provided by our Owner's Association, we personally pay to provide a private wireless encrypted Internet in our condo. When you receive your welcome packet from me you find the name of our private wifi and the password in the email. Additionally, the information is in the silver picture frame on the kitchen bar, just in case our guest forgot to bring their documents. I hope the silver lining to this was, you got to enjoy the beach and have a good time with your friends.

Beautiful condo! Great location and great view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved and enjoyed our stay at the vitamin sea. The condo was perfect and the view of the beach was amazing! Even though tropical Cindy decided to mess with two of our days and we stayed inside we felt like we were at home and could truly relax. Mrs Denise was a great host and was so sweet and even gave us some ideas to do on our rainy days. Also I read in many reviews before our trip that the bed was comfortable and it is absolutely comfortable !!! This was my first time to Florida and was a little worried about crowded beachs but the beach for the sunbird was not crowded at all and everyone had plenty of room to enjoy the sun and water! I loved every minute of our vacation and would love to come back and stay at the vitamin sea again!!

Owner's Response: We are so thrilled you had a great time in spite of Tropical Storm Cindy trying to rain on your parade. It is always good to have a few rainy day tricks up your sleeve; kids can go stir crazy. I must agree with you about the bed and the views. Even when it is raining, I love to look out the windows at the ocean. The Sunbird beach is not usually as crowded as other resorts. The Sunbird has 2 low rise Towers on a wide space of beach. A lot of the other resorts are very tall buildings on a small foot print. What this means at The Sunbird is more beachfront with less people. We are looking forward to you staying with us at "Vitamin Sea" again.

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.
