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!

Beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Portofino several times for our after Christmas family vacation. This was our favorite condo we have stayed in. The furniture and decorations were beautiful and perfect for our family of 8. The views of the beach and bay were great from all bedrooms and living room and the large balcony. Thank you!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great views of the ocean & the sound. It is closest to the main pool. We had a great view of the fireworks from our balcony.

There were many advantages to staying a a resort versus staying at another condo elsewhere. We enjoyed our stay !

Beautiful and luxurious complex- well described in the write up!

  • 5 of 5

The space is large and nicely decorated with incredible views. The owners were gracious and very quick to respond to questions. Pool and hot tub area is close and very accessible, clean and perfect for when you didn't want the beach. The beach is gorgeous but a little further away than we anticipated! We had a baby in tow and were thankful we brought a wagon for hauling things! Laundry in the apartment was handy and the wrap around balconies top notch! We were 7 adults and one baby and the space was perfect. The only down side were the limited cooking things that felt usable! We cooked all our meals there and used the balcony barbecue... Perhaps most people eat out! Check the owner's list of what to bring etc, very helpful!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review! We are happy to hear you all such a wonderful time in our condo. We have since replaced all the cookware with Costco's version of All Clad so it is sturdy and cooks evenly. We hope to accommodate your group again in the future!

The condo was beautiful and the views are spectacular! The bedroom and bathroom layout of this condo was so perfect for our trip. The condo was the perfect place to celebrate and relax for my son's Marine Corp Winging that Friday. We had a minor problem with the Master Toilet, but the owner was so responsive and the maintenance staff took care of everything within an hour. I would love to come back and rent this condo - slightly warmer weather would be appreciated - but regardless of the time of year the views are breathtaking beautiful for someone who comes in from Texas!

A Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the layout of the condo, providing privacy for each family with a central area to gather for meals and socializing. The view was gorgeous when it was not raining. Unfortunately, for us, the rain settled in for most of our visit, but we were so comfortable indoors that I heard very few complaints. Our family loved the amenities provided and took advantage of them daily. The master closet was so large we had a rollaway bed for a five year old and a crib for an 18 month old in their own "room". They even provided a pack and play for a newborn! As you can tell, The owners were very kind and helpful. We are already wishing we could plan another stay this spring and should the opportunity arise, we will definitely seek out this wonderful condo.

Owner's Response: Janet, Thank you for the kind review! We do love to spaciousness of the condo for rainy weather or when you simply want to get out of the sun. Isn't that closet just awesome? Our son sleeps in there as well and loves "his own room" when he's at the beach! We look forward to having your family back, hopefully with a lot more sun in the forecast. The Graysons
