The owner is very attentive to detail and the condo is exceptional. I would stay here again with no hesitation.

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!!!

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.
Rachel N. Jul 2017
I simply want to share with future guests what I wish we had known before booking this unit. First of all, the view is wonderful, and we had a great week in Panama City. As far as the unit goes, it wasn't what we were expecting. If you are someone who likes for the room to be cool, this probably isn't the unit for you. You cannot set the air conditioner below 70. There is a note above the thermostat asking that you not set it below 70 as the ac unit will freeze. The thermostat stops at 70 and does not have the capability to go lower. The air flow in the bedroom was almost none. We tried sleeping in the bedroom the first night and ended up getting up at 3am because we were sweating. At that time, we moved to the living room so we could sleep on the pull out couch. We slept there for a night or two, but the mattresses on pull out couches obviously have to be thin for it to fold up, and we could feel the bars under the mattress, so we ended up sleeping on the floor for the rest of our stay. I would recommend not opening the sliding doors to the balcony from the bedroom. It was super difficult for us to get it closed once we opened it. After we opened it and shut it one time, we never opened it again for the rest of our stay. We used the balcony doors from the living room only. We did have two small roaches in the condo while we were there. Also, if you are wanting wifi, this unit does not have it. On the blinds behind the couch, there are a few blinds missing, so you can't get full privacy in the living room if you are needing that. I wish someone had written a review like this prior to booking the condo because I definitely would have kept looking for other condos. The area is nice, but we definitely will choose a different condo the next time we visit PCB.
Manager response:
We apologize for the discomforts this guest experienced while staying with us. The property manager has a repairman scheduled to fix the rusted sliding door, an egg crate will be installed on the sleeper sofa for better comfort, and a fan has been placed in the bedroom to assist with air flow. Thank you!
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!!
Manager response:
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.
Roy S. May 2016
This property was in terrible shape and the worst place I have ever stayed in. If it had been a hotel I would have demanded a different room or my money back. I am tempted to post this review on social media!!!!
Manager response:
We are very disappointed to see that this guest did not like their stay here. This is a basic room, but it has a wonderful view and access to fun amenities.
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.
