About Owner

We love the Emerald Coast natural beauty and lifestyle. We also love water sports, sailing, scuba, fishing, kayaking and jet skiing!

Owner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Owner chose Pensacola Beach

Portofino is the premier resort for a hundred miles in any direction!

What makes this condo unique

Where else can you find vistas of the Gulf of Mexico, with its clear blue water and white sand beach, and the Santa Rosa Sound, with 8 miles of protected National Seashore right next door and running between the two waterways? Besides the amazing natural beauty, there's no need to ever have to drive with the short walk or resort tram ride to the beach, sound, pools and all the leisure, adventure and fitness activities available at this world class resort!

What a wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo! Can't recommend this place enough. Beautiful views and you can hang out at the beach or the pool or the indoor pool. Restaurant in the complex but just a short drive to lots of additional restaurants and shopping. Easy walk to the ocean beach or the inland waterway beach. Ton's of things to do around here. Loved this place.

Very relaxing, even in the off season!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in January! The weather was cold but sunny. They kept the indoor pool at the perfect temperature for swimming. The views from the condo are fantastic for a nice warm cup of coffee or hot cocoa and a book. We even were able to spend some time at the beach. I highly recommend staying in the off season for the ultimate peace and relaxation.

Beautiful Condo, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Portofino resort several times and this is by far the nicest unit I have ever seen. Large 3 bedroom with amazing views, the decor was warm and beautiful. The owners made check-in a breeze! A five star experience in every way.

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying at this beautiful condo. It was immaculate, everything we needed was available. The kitchen was clean, well organized and spacious. The view from all three bedrioms and the livingroom was beautiful. We were extremely comfortable in this condo.
