About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located at Sunbird, this is an oceanfront condo which overlooks soft, sugary beach and beautiful Gulf of Mexico! We have owned the condo for many years and had a few complaints about our furniture, so we upgraded almost everything. including a new sleeper sofa that makes into a queen bed, a new matching love-seat, a new queen bed in bedroom with a memory foam mattress, and a new dresser. Also, my wife added a new rug in the living room and new art. In addition we have a flat screen TV in bedroom, and living room with ports in front which make it easy to plug in X-Box or Video games, updated light fixtures, stainless refrigerator (with ice maker), stainless stove. The appliances are all full size which is great if you are coming in for a week.

We have recently hired Turnkey to manage this property. Please work directly with them at

Sunbird offers three well-maintained swimming pools! Especially nice. Come, enjoy warm-water temperatures and uncrowded, pristine beaches of early spring!

Be aware that Sunbird is a 25 year old property and it does show some age. If you are expecting a brand new pristine condo, please rent at The Wharf, across the street. You won't have a gulf view or a quick elevator ride to the beach, but it is newer. While our condo is in good shape with new furniture, it does show some age.

We accept credit cards thru PayPal. Association specifies no singles under 25 years old and No Pets. This is a non-smoking unit. Please e-mail or telephone for more information.

Please know that you will be required to purchase a $20 parking pass and pool wristbands on site.

About Randy Reid

We are SEC football fans and follow Dave Ramsey. Kids are out of college and we hope to use the condo much more than we have in the past.

Why Randy Reid chose Panama City Beach

We like Panama City because it is very family-friendly. The ocean is simply beautiful and restaurants are within walking distance. We typically eat breakfast and lunch in the condo, so having Walmart close is a benefit.

What makes this condo unique

Sunbird is a good mixture of people. While it is mainly a family resort, you will also see snowbirds from Canada and young professionals.

Great View!

The condo was nice and clean when we arrived. The view was amazing and was just like the pictures! The bed and other furniture was nice and comfortable! We really enjoyed our stay!

Property was very nice! Me and my children felt right at home!

Condo was very comfortable. Exactly what I expected, maybe even more! Had to reach owners a few times while staying there and they were super accessible and very friendly! I'd definitely stay again, no doubt! I'd refer to friends as well for sure. Access to beach was excellent and balcony view was beautiful! So glad I chose this place when I was looking! Nice, clean, comfy and quiet!

Gated Community was nice. Close to attractions and restaurants. Beach was great.

  • 3 of 5

Pool was very small and lack-luster. Our condo was an older unit that had been updated with nice furnishings. Bathroom could use some updating along with fresh linens. Towels smelled soured and the shower head was missing.The refrigerator handle was taped on and was bothersome when opening and closing the door. Nice view from balcony, comfy bed and couches.

Owner's Response: Michael was a wonderful guest and we would welcome him back. We absolutely agree with his assessment and it is extremely fair. Our unit is an older unit. We were not aware of the tape on the refrigerator door and it has been fixed, and we will add the shower head. Like most of our guests, Michael rented our unit at a rate that is below market and we try to set the proper expectations in our description. If you want a luxury, new condo, we are not a good choice. If you want a condo with a wonderful view of the ocean and one of the best locations in PCB at a very competitive rate, then we offer a good solution. We are pleased that he liked our furnishings.

Not impressed...

  • 2 of 5

The location/view of this condo is about the only thing that it has going for it. We had a couple issues that were hard to forget about. First, as soon as we opened the door, a strong smell of mold over took us. A quick trip to Walmart for some candles and febreeze fixed that problem. Next, we had a couple unwanted visitors (cockroaches). Lastly, everything in the condo has been updated using very low quality craftsmanship.

The condo facility is older, but upkept nicely.

Owner's Response: We agree with much of Ron's assessment and we work hard to set expectations. We are pleased that he enjoyed the view and he is right that Sunbird is an older complex. The furniture is new and of medium grade quality. It just does not make sense to put expensive furniture in the condo, but what we have is attractive and solid. We don't have any mold issue, but we do have a lot of humidity and if the a/c has been off for a few days in between guests, the air does get a bit stale. After about 10 minutes of A/C the air is usually quite nice. We rent below market rates and try to always set proper expectations. If you are looking for a brand new condo, this is not for you. But if you are looking for a great location with an incredible view with basic furnishings, then we may be a good solution.

Perfect vacation!!😎

  • 4 of 5

We took our granddaughter for 4 days. Our first time ever staying at The Sunbird. It was very convenient to the beach and pools and next door to Pineapple Willys. ( her favorite) The condo is small but was clean and just fine for the 3 of us. The owners were great!

Great location great view!

  • 5 of 5

It's a nice quaint little place. Good for a couple great view of the ocean. I've seen a few negative reviews on here but it looks newly renovated and definitely cozy. Only one suggestion maybe a newer mattress or maybe a mattress top from Walmart. Besides that I give this place a 10/10 especially for the price. Will do it again in the future for sure!
