Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Plaza Primera

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


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 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. There is an additional fee charged by VRBO 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 Pensacola Beach

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

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!!

Trust all these 5 star reviews!! Betsy is as attentive as advertised. The unit is a perfect size in a great location with all the amenities you could ask for. And the views and facilities were exactly what we were wanting for our little getaway. We will be back!

Great condo with a wonderful view

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!!!

This is our second time renting this unit with Betsy, and this trip was even more enjoyable than the last! The condo is decorated beautiful & has everything you need for the perfect beach getaway. Our favorite part of the trip was sitting on the balcony in the evenings looking at the ocean. This tower has the best views of the water. Betsy is easy to work with, and even allowed a last minute change for us to stay an extra night. Pensacola is still a hidden gem on the gulf!

Amazing Unit at the Portofino

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained unit at this great complex. Everything was clean and fully equipped as offered. The check in process was smooth and the owner was very accessible to ensure we had the best experience. The view from the unit's balcony was amazing, we took many pictures and will keep great memories. Will definitely book next year!
