My week at Portofino

  • 3 of 5

First, I would like to say thank you for allowing dogs at your property. Pet-friendly rentals are not that easy to find, and my dog had a great time running on the beach every day. We had beautiful weather for the first week of March. There is a dune wall between the pool and the ocean that, based on some comments from beach walkers, may not have been there until recently, but the ocean view from the house was not blocked, and the walkway made it easy to get over the dunes.

The house is somewhat dated, but it was clean, the beds comfortable, and we liked having TVs available in each room. The kitchen is updated and well-stocked with anything we could have needed. My only complaint really is the lack of a screen door to the ocean-side first floor porch, and our inability to open the windows, except for two, both with torn screens.

If the screening issue was fixed, I'd consider renting the property again. My advice to other renters is to bring blankets (not one anywhere, and my friend is always cold), and your own towels (What's there will serve in a pinch, but they are very thin).

Comfortable and convenient beach house

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at this beach front house. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. It is right in front of the pool which can be a blessing and a curse. Easy to get to but late night rowdy swimmers disturbed the peace. Also, our pool floats were stolen so I recommend not leaving them at the pool for convenience. The house was clean but decor a little tired. I had to purchase wine glasses and ended up donating them to the house. Plenty of towels available. The development is between to public beach access so beach can get crowded during high tide which come very close to dunes. Overall, enjoyed our stay.
