About the property

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.

The Emerald Coast’s premier destination resort is Portofino Resort in Pensacola Beach!!! Indulge yourself at the most desired address on all of Florida’s Emerald Coast. Portofino combines the Italian Mediterranean, complete with a European spa, with America’s most beautiful beaches.

Pamper yourself at Spa Portofino, a $5 million 40,000 square foot lifestyle center, featuring customized body treatments, facials, full body massages, pedicures, available poolside or in your own resort residence.

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!

A Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

There aren't many places that we have returned to every year. This one is at the top of our list. The condo is beautifully furnished and comfortable. However, we never tire of seeing the sun poke above the horizon every morning and reveal a never ending pristine view of the white sand beach and Gulf of Mexico. Wow! The staff at this resort is well trained to serve all your needs with friendly attitudes. The facilities are well maintained at all times. Can't wait to return again.

This condo was great!!! It is convenient to everything in the resort and is the closest building to the beach. The owners were great communicating all the information needed and even let us check in early on the first day. We will definitely be looking to return here next year.

everything we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

With daughters in college at UWF, my friend, sister and i came over from Jacksonville and found Portafino to be an excellent choice. This beautiful condo was furnished with everything we could have posibly needed. the beds were comfortable and the sofa couch was used when the kids stayed over. Everything was in perfect shape. The view was great.I encourage the 'adventure package", for us, it was well worth the money spent. Thanks, Karen Jimerson

We just spent a week at Jim's condo and thoroughly enjoyed it. Jim was very pleasant and easy to work with and everything was just as advertised. We would not hesitate to book this property again in the future. Thanks, Jim.

Beautiful condo! Kitchen wonderfully stocked- the best of any condo I have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property and condo. Loved the restaurants on the property, the music by the main pool, and the fireworks. Portofino has a wide range of amenities and activities for everyone. The condo has the best stocked kitchen of anywhere we have stayed, my only want was a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Owner was very great to work with and communicated via text. Loved being in the closest building to the beach, it was very convenient.
