About the property

Tower 5 Gulf Front Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Portofino Resort consists of 28 acres located on a pristine stretch of nature-preserved land bordering both the Gulf of Mexico and the tranquil waters of the Santa Rosa Sound. Enjoy direct access to several miles of federally protected sugar white sand beaches, complete with the renowned emerald green and turquoise waters of the Gulf.

Portofino is the premier destination 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.

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 private balcony with a grill. 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.

For the athletic minded, there are five lighted Rubico (clay) tennis courts; pilates/yoga/spin/kickboxing classes on premises; Tiger Point, a 36-hole championship golf course, is a water taxi ride away; onsite rentals for bicycles, kayaks, sailboats, boogie boards, and water bikes. Enjoy bicycle riding or hiking on Gulf Island National Seashore’s paved trails. What more can a family ask for – there’s something for everyone!

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. Spa Portofino also features a gourmet restaurant as well as a grill, an indoor Olympic pool with a soaring wood-beamed ceiling, state-of-the-art fitness center, two outdoor zero-infinity pools and decks overlooking the magnificent Santa Rosa Sound, whirlpool spas, saunas, steam rooms, and (seasonal) Kids' Camp.

Part of the Portofino experience is the Lifestyle center that includes state of the art exercise machines and free weights. Every treadmill, elliptical trainer and stair stepper has its own cable equipped TV and DVD player. Portofino features a gourmet restaurant as well as a poolside grill. Attendants are available to bring food and drink to you at your request!

We have a 2 BR GULF FRONT unit on the 16th floor of Tower 5 with sensational sunsets every evening! Tower 5 is close to the beach, a short walk gets you right on the beautiful white sand and pristine waters of Pensacola. It is a just a couple minutes walk to the tennis courts, the Spa/lifestyle center, Infinity Pools and restaurant. Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing.

Our unit faces southwest, and is the newest of the five towers. The only thing you will see looking out the 40 feet of floor to ceiling windows and our expansive deck is the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. Miles of spectacular breathtaking views of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore; no high-rises or other towers, nothing to block your view!

OUR CONDO OFFERS AN UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN FRONT VIEW OF THE GULF, OVERLOOKING THE GULF, SANTA ROSA SOUND AND PENSACOLA BEACH!

Beautifully furnished 1,333 square foot unit with a king bed in the master bedroom and queen bed in the guest bedroom. Both bedrooms have private baths and there is a half bath in the common area. There is a sofa in the great room, which opens into a queen sleeper. Both bedrooms feature flat screen TV’s with DVD players, ceiling fans and direct entry to the balcony. Floor to ceiling light blocking drapes offer a great sleeping environment.

The great room includes an entertainment center with 42” plasma TV, and DVD Blu-ray player, movies on hand to watch or rent movies online. The dining area features a table with seating for six. In addition, 3 bar stools offer additional seating facing into the fully equipped kitchen.

Indulge yourself in paradise! Wake up to unobstructed views of the ocean, dolphins cruising the shoreline, and relax in the evenings on the private balcony enjoying the fantastic sunsets, and the sound of the surf.

In addition, we have beach chairs, and a beach umbrella as well as some beach toys for the kids ready for your visit. This will save you bringing your own, or renting them on the beach! (The charge to rent them is $40.00/day so this will help your budget too!)

About Owner

My wife, Carol and I live in Houston, TX and we own our medical/professional business. We love to travel and visit beautiful and exotic places. The gorgeous beaches along the Florida panhandle have long been one of our favorite locations to visit. When the opportunity came along to purchase a luxury vacation home on the beach in a world class resort like Portofino, we jumped at the opportunity. We visit our vacation home several times a year and we love sharing the experience with our friends, family and guests.

Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Owner chose Pensacola Beach

Our family has vacationed in Pensacola Beach area and Portofino many times in the past and we absolutely love the views, the pristine, white sandy beaches and the laid back lifestyle of Pensacola. Spending a week in a beautiful, luxury resort, like Portofino is such a restful and rejuvenating experience. Our plan is to someday retire to the area. In the meantime, we visit as often as we can and we would like to share our lovely condo and the experience of a relaxing Portofino vacation with other families looking for an exceptional and relaxing vacation experience.

What makes this condo unique

The views from our condo are tremendous! It is a magical, relaxing escape from the everyday stress of life and has something for everyone, young and old alike! Watching dolphins jumping in the waves as the sun comes up, or just a stroll along the beautiful white beach observing the wildlife is a unique experience we would love to share with your family. The sunsets are spectacular and the perfect end to a perfect day at Portofino!

5+ stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in some beautiful condos over the years, but this one wins! The unit is very clean, beautifully decorated, and has everything you need. The owners have thought of everything and were very responsive and helpful. The view is spectacular from every room. We have 3 teenagers who loved the condo and resort as much as we did. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful condo with a great location. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets each evening. The bedding was comfortable and the kitchen had everything you needed. The living room area rug was the softest rug I've ever walked on!

What a view!

This condo was awesome! We had everything we needed to make our vacation lovely and relaxing. The view every morning took my breath away and in the evening it was just as spectacular! Being able to look out at the ocean and the sound was really delightful! I highly recommend this condo for your next vacation. You will not be disappointed!
