Sunbird - wonderful ocean front condo

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Relax in my beautiful one bedroom/one bath ocean front condo. The beaches are gorgeous, the Sunbird has many amenities and my unit has been totally renovated and is tastefully decorated.

You can view spectacular sunsets right from the private balcony! The Sunbird is located in the middle of the beach and so, is convenient to everything. World famous Pineapple Willy's is next door with excellent lunch, outside dining on their pier, a varied dinner menu and drinks from the bar.

I provide all linens and the kitchen is fully equipped. Just bring a beach towel and your tooth brush!

About Stan VanSant

I bought this property when the kids were young so we'd have some great family memories at this beautiful beach. Well, we continue to have memories here and I hope you do too!

Stan VanSant purchased this condo in 1998

Why Stan VanSant chose Panama City

My condo is right in the middle of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! The beach, ocean and sunset views are stunning. You are within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, family amusement and more.

very satisfying

  • 4 of 5

Condo was cutely decorated and well equipped for cooking meals. Room could have been cleaner. Floors felt like they had sand on them and patio was sandy. Dusty under bed and couch. I wiped the tables off and found dust and film so they could have done a better job for you cleaning. would consider renting again. Ocean views were great too.

Staying here at the Sunbird was fabulous! We could have not asked for a better stay! Stan made sure we had everything we needed and the room was exactly as pictured. Stan even messaged me several days in advance as I was super nervous of the hurricane that just came through. He made sure there was no damage and even sent me a link to Pineapple Willy's webcam so I could see myself. I would definitely recommend to stay here. We will definitely be coming back!!

Beautiful Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in PCB!!! The condo was beautifully decorated, and I really liked the fact that it had two televisions because me & my Aunt do not like the same shows. The view from the balcony was stunning. The property 3 pools. The staff was very accommodating. I really like the fact that there were luggage carts, and shopping baskets because we were on the 6th floor, and it would have been difficult without them. My only complaint would be that the water pressure in the shower is not great, but that really wasn't a big deal. It will be an easy fix. Overall, we had a great time. Pinapple Willy's is right next door, and they make my most favorite alcoholic beverage in the world. The Pinapple Willy is sooo... Yummy!!!
