Couples will love this one-bedroom condo featuring a balcony hovering over a white-sand beach and access to three pools (one of which is heated seasonally), shuffleboard, tennis, and a clubhouse.
The brightly lit living room is the perfect place to plan out your relaxing day over a homemade breakfast made in the kitchen. The king-size bed is exactly where you'll want to rest up after working hard on your tan. There's also a sofabed, so up to four guests can comfortably stay here. And those ocean views are divine!
Within steps of your door, you'll find shuffleboard and tennis for a little friendly competition. Cool off in one of the pools if the sun gets to be too much. Next door is Pineapple Willy's if you're looking to indulge in some BBQ.
After admiring the beach from your balcony, you'll be glad to sink your feet into the sand. Relax as long as you like on the gulf shore or take a charter fishing boat for a chance at marlin!

The view of the ocean was awesome
Sherri W.Apr 2021
Good location in the heart of all things to do in PCB and right on the beach as well. It was clean and quiet and the sunset is beautiful to watch off the balcony!

What a beautiful place to stay. The weather was perfect, the condo was very cozy and comfortable. Great location and close to everything.
shanu p.Aug 2020
NOT CLEAN!! VERY UNRELIABLE LOCATION, NO SECURITY OR NO ONE IN THE PREMISE IF SOMETHING HAPPENED TO YOU,, DOOR LOCKS WERE ALL JAMMED AND BROKEN,, NO CURTAINS, HALF WAY ON PAINTING, I TRIED TO REACH OUT AND NO ONE CONTACT ME BACK,, STAY AWAY FROM VACASA AND THEIR UNRELIABLE SITE!! USE AIRBNB ETC.
Thank you, Shanu, for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We are so disappointed to read you were not happier. The home will be painted and have curtains placed during the off-season, and we will be replacing the air conditioner as soon as possible. The property manager will follow-up with housekeeping regarding any oversights. Thank you!

This was absolutely the worse place we have ever been. No where in the description was it ever mentioned the room or building was under construction. Only after you let me pay for this dump did I learn you cant go on balcony and pools were closed. When we arrived to condo it was a little scary looking. Very few lights and construction stuff everywhere. Get to the room and there is only 1 little lock at top of door, however not sure it would keep much out since door facing was literally falling off. Below is list of other problems withe the room:
1. No air. Thermostat was set to 70. Room was 80 when we first got there and 83 when we left 2 hours later. There was a box fan in living room and stand up fan in bedroom. Oh yeah, this was at 10 pm. Can you imagine how hot it would be in the day???
2. Kitchen chair broke and only thing noting it was someone wrote it on a napkin.
3. No where to put our bags in closet due to construction workers stuff and rolls of carpet in there.
4. Behind the couch was the blinds and curtains along with the screws that should have been on the walls.
I have pictures of all the issues but not sure how to upload on here.
As soon as we got there I immediately started calling Vacasa and of course no one answered. Got on phone with someone thru VRBO and the lady I spoke with was very nice and helpful. On the phone for nearly 2 hours with her and she got us moved to somewhere else. Where we went to was only a double bed hotel however and not the 1 bed condo like whet I was paying for. Actually ended up only staying 1 night instead of the 2 like I paid for since it was only a hotel and traveled with 2 teens. Its a little disgusting to think you pay almost 500 for 2 nights and literally only used 9 hours of it because it was such a disaster and not anything like what i was paying for. Not once have i been asked anything about a refund or at least a partial. Worse condo experience ever!!! Very leary of ever using VRBO again.
Only positive is my kids have learned you cant trust everything you see on the internet.
Condo owners should be ashamed to even put that one out there for rent and take people's money knowing the shape it is in. Talk about having no morals. Ridiculous as to how people can sleep at night knowing they are ripping people off.
Hi, Laura! We appreciate you taking the time to leave your review and would like to sincerely apologize for the frustrations you experienced. The air conditioner is now functional. New carpet will be installed in the fall, curtains will be hung soon, and various other upgrades will be performed as well to help this be a wonderful vacation rental. We do hope to have a chance to impress you in the future!

In the midst of Covid 19, I was able to get away and be quarantined on the beach. I bought my food, cooked in the condo, and visited the beach before the crowds came... It was AMAZING!!!
Steven H.Mar 2020
Condo itself was great but the Sunbird is under major construction and was hard to safely navigate through.
Joe S.Nov 2019
I loved everything!
John D.Oct 2019
Bathroom is small but the view makes up for it. Can beat it!!!
Pamela G.Oct 2019
The place was very clean,right on the beach had a wonderful view of the sun setting. Weather turned cold but still have a great time.
Miranda M.Oct 2019
We loved the decor in the living room and bedroom! The kitchen has the coolest copper counter tops that make spills easy to clean up. The balcony had plenty of seating and even a table. We enjoyed eating breakfast and drinking coffee out there. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Roger B.Sep 2019
The location and ease of access is great, Keeps us coming back to Sun Bird
Cody W.Sep 2019
It was very quite and close the the beach
Corey C.Aug 2019
Arielle J.Oct 2018
Nice view and all appliances needed.
Megan A.Sep 2018
It was a wonderful stay, clean condo, and comfortable environment. The views and beach were amazing!
Cesar B.Sep 2018
Loved how clean the condo was & the fact that everything was working properly! Planning to go there again soon!
Christy S.Aug 2018
The owner is very attentive to detail and the condo is exceptional. I would stay here again with no hesitation.
Steve O.Jul 2018
My son and I stayed here last week and loved it!!
The beach and pool area were fantastic!
I will say that while the room was a little dated, it served our purpose very well!!
It was very clean!
A/C worked great!
Close to everything!
We would stay here again without any hesitation...
Thank you Vacasa!!!
Amanda R.Jul 2018
Loved the condo and loved the convenience of the pool and beach . Thanks!!!
Isaac P.Jun 2018
Great place to relax and enjoy the beach at your leisure. This location has a lovely view of the Panama City Beach for a couple of miles in both directions.
Definitely recommend to others looking for a getaway.
Kristy M.Jun 2018
We had the best time staying there. Would recommend to ANYONE.
Melissa C.Jun 2018
The condo is right on the beach! Balcony view is amazing! Like the gated parking, has community washer and dryers, and lots of carts for loading and unloading luggage. Has two beach entrances. Right next door to a great restaurant/bar. The staff was nice. They gave us a beach bag with water and snacks. The bag came in handy! We had a great beach vacation.
Ivan F.Jun 2018
This was a really sweet little condo. It is very clean and stocked well with towels/cookware/dishes/etc. my favorite part was the view. Robin was really and available for any questions that we had. My only recommendation would be to have internet access. I know this doesn’t sound like a big deal but we were stuck in our condo during subtropical storm Alberto. Another recommendation would be to throw in either parking and wristbands or beachchairs with the stay or at a discounted rate. Overall it was a fantastic place for 2!
Barbara E.May 2018
Although this is an older building, it is kept clean and neat. I loved how it is just steps from the beach. The unit was cute, clean and comfortable. The management company goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. I loved the goody bag, fan and clean beach chairs. Everything in the unit worked properly. I arrived early and called the manager who immediately responded and allowed me to check in early. I will definitely go back!
Briana C.May 2018
This condo was really gorgeous. The balcony had a perfect view of the ocean from both the living room and the bedroom. I also noticed this suite had nicer furniture on the balcony than other condos in the same building (it has newer furniture on the balcony than what's pictured in the photos but everything else is pretty much the same). The carpet and furniture was all clean and well taken care of. All together a very beautiful condo.
Tina W.Apr 2018
We enjoy, as we say, "practicing" for retirement, so we enjoy walking up the pier to watch the fishermen, walking along the shore, eating tremendous local food, and relaxing on the balcony at the end of the day. Hearing the background of the waves is a real bonus, of course!
Our condo had a unique and beautiful multiple view of the oceanfront!
Derrick S.Apr 2018
The facilities were clean.
Larry B.Apr 2018
Fantastic view from the balcony. rented chairs on beach and attendant went out of his way to make sure you had what you needed. didnt use pool weather at time of visit not comfortable. although chilled at times still had some warm days to bake in the sun. room 608E was little larger than friends room with better view. would recommend this room or rent again
Glenda W.Mar 2018
Clean and well sticked
donna c.Mar 2018
Loved the view.
Margaret G.Mar 2018
This was my 3rd stay at the Sunbird. I have always likes the location. And the condos are great.
John M.Feb 2018
Very nice, clean condo with beautiful view of ocean and beach
Elizabeth J.Jan 2018
The condo was perfect for what we needed. Just 3 women and only for a couple days. The only negative was we only had 1 mirror in the whole condo and it was in the 1 bathroom so getting ready was a task. Other than that it was perfect for what we needed.
Brittney M.Nov 2017
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. We were on our honeymoon so the location of the hotel was perfect. We were close to so many things and made it easy when going out. The manager was wonderful with surprising us with a complementary bottle of champagne and chocolates! We will defiantly be back!!
Pamela M.Oct 2017
Great location and gorgeous view! Nice unit on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay. Perfect for my husband and I. Can't wait to go back!
Chad T.Oct 2017
Our stay was amazing at the Vacasa room! The only downfall would be that, as someone else previously noted, the air conditioner doesn’t circulate in the bedroom very well. However, the fan that has been put in the room helped make it comfortable again. The view from the room was breathtaking and the porch was fantastic. We will definitely be back to this condo.
Rebekah H.Jul 2017
The view is awesome. The location is very convenient. We loved the quiet room.
Barbara L.Jun 2017
Overall my Husband and I enjoyed our stay we will be back for our next vacation
Matthew H.Jun 2017
Everything was exactly as described and better! Best vacation ever!!
Robin L.May 2017
This trip was our honeymoon and it was an amazing time. The view was spectacular. We will definitely be back.
Sarah J.May 2017
We loved our stay here. The view is amazing and the condo had everything we needed. We will definitely be back again.
Marija V.Apr 2017
It's like the pictures show! Love that it's steps away from the beach and very close to shopping and food! Would defiantly stay here again
Mike M.Apr 2017
The price is reasonable and the views are great.
The old dirty carpet, old sofa sleeper, lack of wifi and general overall need of updates must be taken care of to make this a good property.
Marcy T.Mar 2017
This condo was a great value as far as beach front and convenience to everything we wanted to do in Panama City. It really could use a few updates and a thorough cleaning but overall we had a great vacation and felt safe while we were at the Sunbird. You CAN'T beat that view and beach conveience. Will definitely return. Would recommend if your not a clean fanatic.
Matthew H.Mar 2017
This condo was everything I had hoped for AND more! Most obviously, the views are simply stunning. You are getting a view that is completely unobstructed and unmatched by other condos I've stayed in.
The unit itself had everything we needed! Oh, and that bed!! We slept like babies on a cloud while listening to the calming crashes of the waves just below us.
The manager was even able to get us checked in hours earlier!
I'm already planning my return and will DEFINITELY be booking this condo.
Sharon A.Mar 2017
The balcony on the 6th floor was great - right on the beach. The interior of this condo need updating, especially the carpeting.
Ben T.Sep 2016
Really nice apartment with a great balcony overlooking the ocean. I'm not a huge fan of Panama City Beach, but this property was in a nice, quiet location, but still near everything you might want to access.
Kelsey H.Sep 2016
We enjoyed our stay. Location was great & the rental process was very easy!
Courtney O.Sep 2016
Condo was in a great location. Right next to beach with direct balcony views from living room and bedroom. Very well cleaned upon arrival. The only complaints I had when we arrived, the complex was gated. In the check in email the code to get into the gate was not included. We had to call the 1-800 number and give our confirmation email to receive the code. Staff fro vacasa are not on site. Another complaint I had was the wifi connection is only good from the pool house not in the condo. I had to take a test for grad school requiring wifi connection during my stay. Unfortunately I had to call the local library to reserve a room to ensure my internet access. Might consider getting wifi present in condo. Also I was informed that I would receive an email when the condo was ready. Check in was at 4. We called to see if it would be available early and vacasa said they would try. I never received an email or call stating the condo was ready. We went to check on it before we departed to go get groceries at 3. And the condo was clean. I wish vasaca had better means of communication with their guests. Lastly when we checked out there were no instructions as to where to leave the key. I called that morning and left a message at 8 since we had a long drive home (checkout at 11, we left at 9). Nobody from vacasa returned my phone call til 12 when we were half way home!
Again the location and cleanliness of condo was great. But might want to consider internet access for condo, better check in/check out communication, and some updating.
Katie O.Sep 2016
Loved the location and the view from this condo. It could use a deep clean and some updating but was just fine for what we needed it for! Would for sure stay here again.
Regina M.Sep 2016
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. The condo is perfect for a couple. It's cozy and comfortable. And the view of the ocean was incredible! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and people watching and in the morning, sitting out and listening to the crashing waves. We would stay here again!
Jennifer C.Aug 2016
The beach front balcony properties are super relaxing.
Toni R.Aug 2016
Me and my girls had a fabulous time. Would stay here again.
Bonnie C.Jul 2016
We loved the view of the beach from this unit. It is just right for a couple! We had a great time.
Elysha H.Jun 2016
The view was awesome, the place was clean. They just need to do a little updating and it would be fabulous.
Thomas M.Jun 2016
My wife & I spent the first weekend of June 2016 at the property. Great location along with an amazing view of the Gulf. The sound of the crashing water on the beach off the balcony made it feel like we weren't in a busy town.
L June B.Jun 2016
We were happy with the condo. There have been several bad reviews, but maybe these are from renters that expected high end decor such as granite counter-tops and glassed in shower. Everything that we needed was there. This unit had sufficient towels, too, while other units had so few the renters had to wash them several times a week!
Suggestion - Give renters of this unit a user name and password for the xfinity hot spot. Xfinity subscribers can use the xfinity hot spot FREE. Instead, we had to do without internet most of the time as there was no access in the unit itself. Being able to connect our phones/devices would be a BIG plus.
Nick P.May 2016
Great room great balcony except blinds to balcony where difficult to operate and overall cleanliness of the condo was not up to par. It should have been cleaned better for the cleaning fee we all pay!
Carolyn D.May 2016
Not at all what we were expecting would not stay in this unit again!!
We are sorry to see that this unit was a disappointment. We are happy to help guests find the perfect vacation home for their needs if they call us at 503-345-9399.
Christina W.Apr 2016
Unit was exactly where I wanted it. Great view of the water loved the extended porch
Roman R.Apr 2016
Positive: Great view for this money. First line and easy access to the beach. Two pools. Close to shopping.
Negative: Quite old and humid room. No WiFi. Cold water pools. Sofa is not comfortable for sleeping.
Brent W.Mar 2016
Great condo and location for a quick getaway. My wife and I went down during spring break for a few days. We were a little nervous about the trip due to the reputation of PCB being a party town, but we had absolutely no issues whatsoever. The condo is in an excellent location, and the views you see from all of the rooms is spectacular. The condo is well cleaned and maintained and offers great access to the beach. We will definitely be back when we can.
Diane M.Mar 2016
The only good thing about this condo is it's location and the view. As a whole this condo is in poor condition.
Kathie M.Feb 2016
This condo was exactly as it appeared in the photos and as advertised and we weren't disappointed. Amazing view from the balcony of the beach, the shoreline, and the beautiful sunsets! Enjoy your morning coffee with the dolphins as they frolic in the surf - perfect! So much to do in PCB, or just enjoy the beach! We will be back! Thanks so much!
Gary B.Feb 2016
Enjoy your stay, the view, the food, relax.
Kathy H.Jan 2016
Very nice place. Perfect for a couple. Love the views! Bed very comfortable. The only negative thing was the repairs going on in the other condos was loud and annoying on certain days. Plus the workers were smoking and we could smell it. But this wasn't the condo's fault.
Brian W.Oct 2015
We had an Awesome 5 days here, it was just my husband and I and we had plenty of room. The Balcony View was Amazing, the kitchen was stocked with everything needed, dish detergent and all. Bathroom even had enough Tissue, shampoo, conditioner and soap to last for the week. We have NO complaints :)
Eddie H.Aug 2015
Stayed in the Sunbird condo unit 608E. Exactly as described and in pictures. The beautiful view of the gulf could be seen in both directions. Enjoyed amazing sunsets from our private deck! Very clean and easy access to the beach!
Edd H.Aug 2015
Overall, it was a smooth process and easy to use. The Property we stayed at was like any other property on the beach, but the location was good.
