About Carly

As a Pensacola native, I love coming back home. Currently I reside in Atlanta with my wife and visit on the few times our unit is unrented. My family lives here still so we enjoy having the opportunity to get together for one week each summer here at the Portofino.

Carly purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carly chose North West Florida

As Pensacola is home to me it was an easy decision to choose this vacation spot on the beautiful white beaches and clear blue waters here on the gulf. It's also easy to get to and from the Pensacola Airport yet remote enough that it's never overcrowded!

We enjoy so many things about the Portofino, from the infinite pools with waitstaff to attend to you, the miles of undeveloped beaches to stroll down, close restaurants and shopping, as well as the Portofino's boat that will take you from the dock to the Pensacola boardwalk and back several times daily.

What makes this condo unique

We know our condo has some great benefits, especially over the 1 and 2 bedroom units. Our balcony has a panoramic view of the west, from the gulf to the sound, giving us an unobstructed view of the sunset daily! With over 500 square feet of patio space you can sit in our adirondack chairs and enjoy the view or grill out with your whole group. We also love our open floor plan. The kitchen, dining and living room are great for big groups. Our building is also conveniently located just left of the Lifestyle Center for quick access to the infinite pools or a stroll along the sound. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do!

Seriously a slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

this was our first trip with our little one (11mo) and this place was by far the best decision we have ever made! the unit itself was wonderful. so much room and pretty easily baby proof. they also have a crib and that was a winner for us. we literally just left and we are already rebooking for the same time next year. the sound/pool area is wonderful and everything is at the palm of your hands here! thank you so much! we had the best time!

Far exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Pensacola Beach so we werent quite sure what to expect. We were blown away by how nice the grounds were and how nice the beach was as well. It was not overcrowded at all. Once we made it up to the actual room we had our breath taken away first by the view from pretty much any room, then by the condition of the condo which was amazing. It seems like every detail was thought of and i wouldnt change a thing about how it was decorated. All questions were promptly answered and we felt the price was very fair for what we received. Hopefully this doesnt chamge as we have already told family and friends about this specific condo and plan to stay again ourselves.

Love the owners and their place!!

  • 5 of 5

We left and immediately rebooked for the same time next year. The place is very nice and you get a bay and beach view. Beds and furniture are super comfortable. I loved the chairs on the balcony. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view in the the morning or evening. Kitchen had everything we needed. The owner, Carly is great on communication and just a kind, sweet soul. We even became face book friends!!

Spacious, organized, and clean

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in 1107 at Portofino! We were 3 families of 6 adults and 3 young kids and the space suited us perfectly, especially the large master bedroom with the walk in closet with a crib for our toddler. The condo was clean, spacious, and very well decorated without breakable knick knacks or decor to worry about with little kids around. The views were beautiful and everything was as described, no surprises really. The only slight drawbacks included lack of good lighting in the dining and main area since it was overcast most of our trip, this was made more noticeable; the washer & dryer are older and fairly small so we had to do multiple smaller loads and the dryer takes quite a while to dry (still happy to have had laundry room on site though); and the water pressure in all of the showers was very minimal since they are rain water showerheads, we girls had to wash our hair with the tub faucet instead. This did NOT make us disappointed with our stay, I just think its worth mentioning for future guests and feedback for the owners :)

Some major pros we appreciated were the abundance of dishes, cutlery, and cookware especially decently sharp knives for food prep; there were also plenty of bath towels for everyone too; and communication with the owners before our trip was excellent! The Portofino itself was a great place with beautiful grounds, friendly staff, and great amenities. The only restaurant on site we ended up dining at was the poolside bar and the food was very good, especially the fish tacos and burger. I would pass on the mixed drinks though, they are overpriced and very weak in terms of alcohol.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here and will definitely look for availability here for next summer's trip!

Owner's Response: Allison, Thanks for all your feedback! We really appreciate it so we can make appropriate changes for the comfort of our future guests. We are so glad you found everything so nicely decorated, useful kitchen items, and the closet-crib room! That's probably the most useful item for any family with little ones. We also love the fish tacos at the poolside dining, delicious. Please come back and see us again next year. We would love to have your family stay with us again! The Graysons

Loved it

Great property. Great facilities. Plenty of room. Great communication with the owners when needed and they were very pleasant. Staff at the Portofino was top notch. Everything is on site you'd ever need, besides groceries. They even have a shop with odds and ends. Convenient parking and easy access. If we come back to Pensacola we'd definitely look here first.
