LUXURY, EXCLUSIVITY –2 BR GULF FACING unit on the 16th floor in Tower 3, #1608 with an unrestricted and private view of the Gulf and National Seashore park extending all the way to Navarre and no other buildings in sight (only the East side of tower 3 has this view). All my quotes include all fees, taxes and cleaning which can be between $400-$600 a week depending on the season, remember to take these into account when getting a quote. Beautifully furnished 1,330 square foot unit with a king bed in the master bedroom and queen bed in the second bedroom with blackout curtains in both, a sofa bed in the living room. 40 feet of floor to window glass provides spectacular gulf views. 32' TV in the master bedroom, a 32' TV in the guest bedroom, a 19' TV in the kitchen and a 48' TV along with HD receivers, HBO and a Blu-ray DVD with Netflix capability in the living room and a Net receiver in the master that gives you access to Netflix, Amazon etc. Dining seating for six. High speed wireless internet and a reserved covered parking spot. This is a high end unit with all the upgrades, granite counter-tops, crown moldings, etc. Tower 3 is the best tower as it is the closest tower to the beach, adjacent to the tennis courts, and a couple minute walk to the Spa/lifestyle center and restaurant.

My quotes include all the Portofino fees, taxes and cleaning.

The open floor plan features 40 feet of spectacular Gulf view, allowing breathtaking views from each and every room! Floor to ceiling glass in both gulf front bedrooms and the family room, 9 foot ceilings with crown molding, and an expansive (28 feet) private balcony. Elegant Tuscany columns, domed entryway, arched ceilings, granite counter tops, imported Italian floor tile, and the master bathroom Roman whirlpool tub only begin to describe Portofino’s distinct Mediterranean feel.

World class vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled extensively around the world, the location, accommodations and pricing for this unit is among the best we have ever experienced. The view from the 16th floor of this 2 bedroom luxury condominium is unparalleled, with the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Island National Seashore, and Santa Rosa Sound all visible without obstruction. Wildlife viewing is also fantastic, from ospreys, pelicans, blue herons and egrets, to shorebirds, mergansers, terns and gulls, the viewing from the patio is remarkable. We viewed dolphins numerous times during our 3 month stay from January through March 2017, and found innumerable unbroken seashells during our strolls of the beach. The white sands of the beach are the prettiest we've ever seen, and justifies the "Emeral Coast" description of this remarkable area.

The accommodations were clean, spacious, comfortable and uniquely appointed. All needed appliances and household items are available, and the beds and sofa were very comfortable. A very nice, open arrangement of furniture allows for the maximum utilization of this wonderful unit.

Portofino offers numerous entertainment and exercise options. We regularly utilized the indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools and whirlpools, along with the sauna and steam rooms located within the Spa. We participated in Yoga, water aerobics, and Pilates classes, along with riding regular and electric powered bicycles, and utilized the various exercise equipment in the fitness center. Everything was top notch, and the environment and grounds we're clean and elegantly maintained. Staff were always friendly and accommodating, and quickly resolved any issues brought to their attention. A great facility for young and old, families, couples and friends.

The owners of this unit, Jim & Etta, were easy to work with and responded promptly to correspondence. Their unit was as advertised, and everything worked as stated. A high quality, elegantly appointed comfortable unit with spectacular views.

This is the best winter destination we've stayed at so far, and we highly recommend this Portofino unit. Hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we have!

Perfect Condo, Perfect Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time visiting Portifino and I can say hands down this was one of the best condos we have ever stayed in. I have rented many times over the years thru VRBO and this owner had one of the most cozy, clean and stocked units I have visited. Not to mention a great parking spot in those tight garages condos offer. Our whole family enjoyed this stay along with the unobstructed view looking over the gorgeous coast. Jim was also very responsive to any of my questions and concerns. I would give this one an A++ - will definately refer to friends and family and be back in the future!!

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

Jim's place is great… comfortable and clean with breathtaking views of Santa Rosa Sound and the Gulf. The sunrises and sunsets from the balcony are magnificent. A bonus for us was also experiencing a beautiful full moon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was so nice to have everything we needed aside from our own groceries. Portofino is one of our favorite places to stay with all of the amenities, as well as its location. The recommended restaurants were all stellar… Grand Marlin, Flounders & Crabs (both owned by the same person,) Peg Leg Pete's, and Cactus Flower on the Boardwalk. The Palafox St area of Downtown Pensacola has some good eateries and shops, in particular, the Blue Morning Gallery featuring the works of local artists. We also had so much fun parasailing over the Sound. You can find their shop on the right hand side just before going over the bridge toward Pensacola. And if you're looking for a grocery store, Publix is just over that bridge on the right. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home with us and for being so incredibly responsive.

We will be back! :-)

This condo is lovely and just as pictured and described. There are lots of supplies provided, both in the kitchen and the bathrooms. We had plenty of space (a family of four). We used the outdoor space although the construction going on in front of the building did distract from the sound of the ocean somewhat but I understand the need to maintain the complex. Everything worked well; we had no complaints about anything. James was very good about checking in with us the day we arrived, being available during the stay and again on checkout day to make sure all was working as promised...and it was. The grounds are beautiful and easy to get around. The ocean is just a short walk and is clean and well-maintained. There were plenty of chairs and umbrellas if desired or plenty of space to get away from the crowds instead. We used the gym, the spa and spent nearly every evening sitting around the main pool off the spa, having drinks and snacks. Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing stay!
