Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

THIS CONDO HAS THE BEST VIEWS OVERLOOKING THE GULF, IN TOWER I, GREAT VALUE!

Enjoy gorgeous views of the Gulf and the sugar white sands of Pensacola Beach from the 9th FLOOR of this luxury Portofino Resorts condominium. Everything is here to complete your perfect family vacation, or for a romantic get away! But don't take my word on that, just see what past renters have to say about the condo! 'We rented Betsy's beautiful condo for family members who were in town for graduation. What a relaxing retreat it was! It is beautifully furnished with a panoramic beach view from every room. I highly recommend it!' Make sure to check out what past renters have said about this beautiful condo, by visiting my on-line guest book!

The smoke-free condominium features an open floor plan, with high ceilings and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors opening out onto a private balcony.

The decor is beautiful yet simple, featuring big, comfy slip-covered chairs and sleeper sofa. Art is found throughout the spacious condo, which features tiled floors in the main living and dining area, and carpeting in the two bedrooms. Each bedroom is a complete retreat, including a television and video player.

Be a smart renter, and make sure you ask what the rental fee includes. MY QUOTES INCLUDE ALL FEES AND TAXES, AND IT IS A GULF FRONT VIEW. NOTE: VRBO charges a fee if you use their on-line payment option.

I accept credit card payments through Paypal. Just call or email for more information!

About Betsy Booth

I lived in beautiful Pensacola with my 4 children for 23 years. We love the condo, and hope you will treat it like your home while you are here!

Betsy Booth purchased this condo in 2003

Why Betsy Booth chose North West Florida

Portofino has it all-and we love feeling like we are able to get away, while being right on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep at night. Plus, all the amenities of home right here. We don't even go out-we just cook in, and watch videos, play games. Just great!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's been a beautiful week. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your gorgeous facility. We hope to be back and will share with others who may be looking for a beautiful getaway.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting from VRBO. The property owner, Betsy, was great to work with. She made the booking process as uncomplicated as possible and delivered the keys to me quickly. The condo looks even better than the pictures and it was exactly as described. The condo was clean, smelled fresh and all of the appliances, TV's, etc. were in working condition, there was plenty of hot water, the beds were of good quality and comfortable. We appreciated that there were fresh linens, beach towels, plates/utensils, paper goods, etc. The view is AMAZING from the balcony. The Portofino Resort is upscale with an attentive, friendly staff that appeals to all ages. Note to those who use debit cards...the main office will put a hold of $100 per day of your stay while there that can take up to a week to reverse. The grounds are well-maintained and workers are out daily tending to the property. We had one issue with a clogged toilet. We called Betsy about it and she had maintenance there to fix the toilet within 10 minutes. I would HIGHLY recommend Betsy's lovely condo to anyone wanting to enjoy Pensacola Beach. I personally recommend the National Seashore beach just down the road to observe the wildlife first-hand. For the best seafood, visit Peg Leg Pete's but expect a wait because they are always busy. If it's a rainy day, cross the bridge to the National Naval Aviation Museum to spend a few hours exploring. We will definitely be back!!

Great condo, amazing view, perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in this condo and we would definitely return! It is nicely decorated, has everything you need and is very clean and comfortable. The view of the gulf from the spacious balcony is fabulous! Betsy is great to work with and was very accommodating when we asked to stay an additional night. I would recommend this condo to family and friends and look forward to our next trip!

Couldn't ask for a better stay -- five stars!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, aunt and I recently spent a long weekend at Betsy's lovely condo. Everything is exactly as shown in the photos and we had a fabulous stay. Betsy was a great hostess in all respects: she communicated clearly and promptly during the booking process, and was responsive and helpful in answering a few questions once we arrived. Check-in at the main office was a breeze, and check-out was simple as well. The condo is clean and tastefully decorated; the beds are comfy; and the showers work great. We especially loved the spectacular view from Betsy's 9th floor balcony and from both bedrooms. We also fully enjoyed all the facilities that Portofino offers. The whole experience was wonderful and we wouldn't hesitate to rent again from Betsy or to highly recommend her condo to others.

Betsy is a great hostess and very responsive. This condo is super clean (we are picky!) and has all the comforts of home plus the best view. Highly recommended.

Great condo - very comfortable and practical!

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated and very comfortable for a family. I was impressed with the little practical things that just make a vacation easier, like chairs for the beach, super soft sheets, and an extra air mattress if needed to name a few. It sounds weird to start a review with practical things but they make a difference when selecting a unit!

Also, great view of the gulf!

And last but certainly not least, Betsy was extremely responsive to all of my questions. I was sure I was driving her crazy but she was very patient and always quick with an answer. Again, things that make a vacation easier are big winners with me!. Thanks Betsy!!!
