About the property

Condo, 1 King Bedroom, Sofa Bed in Living Room, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

We invite you to enjoy our beautifully furnished "Surfside Sandcastle." This second floor beachfront condo is so convenient to the beach! This is a much sought after Sunbird Deluxe 'B' floor plan! See the beach from every room! Sleep to the soothing sounds of the surf from the Coastal Escape master bedroom that opens onto the balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Step onto the balcony for an awesome view of the sand and sea. Spectacular sunsets! Surround yourself with the total beach experience up close and personal. This beautiful one bedroom, one bathroom property comfortably sleeps 4 in a luxury king sized bed and a comfy queen sleeper sofa. See you at THE BEACH!

Relax on the great room's sofa or put your feet up in the comfy leather recliner in the living room. Curl up with one of our 'beach books' or enjoy TV, Stereo and DVD/VCR to your heart's content. You can even 'surf by the surf' with free high speed internet access!

Why should you rent from us? Because what you see is what you get. All vacation rentals are not the same. When you rent our beautiful condo, you can be sure of exactly where you will be staying. Our family owns and manages 8 condos in Sunbird so, if this one is booked, just let us know and we can help you choose another one for your vacation. Larger family groups enjoy renting multiple condos for family gatherings so that everyone can be together and still have a little privacy.

The Coastal Retreat master bedroom's whimsical coastal decor is casual and inviting. You'll feel relaxed as soon as you step in. Of course the bedroom is beachfront with a fabulous view of the beach and the ocean. Because of our second floor location, it's almost like sleeping right on the beach! The bedroom has a large flat screen TV, too.

Our modern, updated gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops, oak cabinets, a smooth top range, a microwave/range hood combo and everything else you'll need to whip up a quick snack or a gourmet meal. You'll enjoy our nautical dinnerware, too.

The bathroom has a tub/shower combo with a handheld shower massage and a single vanity. A hair dryer is furnished for your convenience.

Get to the beach FAST! This condo is just steps from the beach. Just one easy flight of stairs up from ground level-no waiting for the elevator!

Sunbird is a gated community with three pools, sunning decks, tennis court, shuffleboard, on-site fitness center and charcoal barbecue grills for poolside cook-outs. Restaurants and attractions are located nearby. Just walk next door to World Famous Pineapple Willy's for barbecue ribs or seafood, and enjoy a delightful sunset dinner from his pier or make it a lunchtime treat!

Small but nice. Convenient to restaurants and shopping.

Room nice but small. Pictures deceiving because of mirror. Glass doors to balcony very hard to open. Lounger on balcony needs replacing and bathtub needs attention.. Bedroom room would not close due to bed. Loved having the floor fan. Comfortable recliner.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We value your comments so we can make our home away from home even better. I wish you had called us while you were here to let us know about these issues. Some of them could have been dealt with right away. We are on call to help make your stay the best ever. Installing mirror walls is very popular in condos to make the rooms look larger. You'll find that in lots of places at the beach. Also, the mirrors give you more ocean view inside the unit. Since you stayed, we have had the sliding door rollers replaced so that it is not longer hard to open. So next time you come back, that should not be an issue. We hope you'll come back and try us again. We do have other larger properties that you might like better for your next stay.

Great little condo at a great price.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sunbird 208W. I really liked the layout of the condo. The decorations and furnishings were very pleasant. Although it is a small 1 bedroom it felt larger because both the living area and the bedroom have wonderful views of the beach and ocean.

Our kids really enjoyed the pool and how close we were to the beach. I liked being on a lower floor. It was very convenient when going to and from the beach and pool.

We brought a queen sized air mattress to put on the sofa bed and we recommend the same to anyone else that plans on sleeping on it. I've yet to find a sofa bed with a comfortable mattress.

The pricing for the unit was great. It is an older condo and it shows its age a bit but it was very clean and we had no maintenance issues. We were very satisfied and felt like we got a our money's worth for this rental.

Thanks for allowing us to stay in your condo.

Great Location, Great view

My Brother inlaw and I took my 15 year old son and a friend for spring break from Michigan. We had a great time. Had a small issue that was addressed immediately by Sarah. Would definitely stay here or any of Sarahs condo's in the future. Thank you for making the most important part of our stay so simple.

Thanks again

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. We enjoyed it tremendously. What an awesome view of the beautiful sandy beach and ocean. Loved sitting on the balcony just listening to the waves. The kids had a blast being able to walk out and immediately be on the beach. The condo was just the right size for us and the location was absolutely fantastic. We had a great time and appreciate you letting us stay in your home.
