About Brandi

We bought this condo as part of the first wave of development. We are original owners and had this condo professionally decorated. It has been greatly cared for. We are Pensacola locals and cannot wait to share this beautiful place with you.

Brandi purchased this condo in 2003

Why Brandi chose North West Florida

Portofino offers seclusion. There is access to both the gulf side and the bay side. Each tower has its own private pool and spa tub. The sugar white sand is to die for.

What makes this condo unique

Fitness center, smoothie bar, heated indoor pool, indoor spa tub, Spa, locker room with showers all top of the line. Bar, restaurant, beachside service. Charging privilege's, parking, and walking distance to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautifully decorated condo..gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

This condo is decorated beautifully. Plenty of room for a whole family to gather. We had 7 on ours girls trip, and especially enjoyed our dinners at the dining room table and the views from each side of the balcony. The beds were very comfortable, and having floats available was a nice touch. The property at Portofino is immaculate. Live music at the main pool was great. We also loved the pool at our tower, where we could take our ice chest. We had a great time.

Great view & property!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time there - watched some of the Blue Angels practice on Friday from the balcony & had a good view while the rest of the family saw it from the beach. The condo was well equipped and everyone enjoyed their time there. We've rented other condos at Portofino & really enjoyed this one and will consider it again in the future. Lots of seating inside but could have used a few more chairs outside especially since the balcony is so large & spacious.

We have stayed at the Portofino many times, this unit is slum.

  • 1 of 5

We will not rent this unit again. We have stayed in other units at the Portofino and have not been disappointed. This unit was very dirty and needs updating. The kitchen has a hodge podge of dishes and pots and pans. The coffee pot and toaster were the cheapest you can purchase. They could have actually been second hand items. The closet in the master is locked making you hang your clothes in another bedroom. That was handy. Our daughter and husband said there was trash and just dirt under their bed. The floors were so dirty if you walked about bare foot the bottoms of your feet were black. We made the best of it. We will probably rent again but directly with the Portofino. You should check out the owners integrity and the units before allowing them on your site. It would help the credibility of your company. The owner has filed a bogus insurance claim to replace his very used everyday items. Most of the views from this unit are the sound side.

Owner's Response: First of all this woman never made any of these complaints to me until I filed a claim with the insurance program because after they left there was a broken table and a missing pan. I truly think that if these issues were so bad then she would have said something before then. She took me filing a claim with the insurance company (first time i have ever do so) personally and it was more about me not coming out of pocket for items renters break. AS far as insulting my credibility, check the other reviews. I go above and beyond to fix a problem, but the renters have to notify me. If she would have called me, I would have gladly sent someone down there to clean the unit, no cost to her. In regards to the "cheap" appliances in the kitchen, they are all GE Profile. Far from being a slum, but sometimes in this business, you can pave the place with gold and it still would not be good enough. Also, the views are not mostly of the soundside, its about 50/50. You can verify this through Portofino. I DO NOT suggest renting to this woman, her and her family left my place with personal items missing/stolen and left me with broken furniture, on top of blood stains on the sheets.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Portifino. We have 3 daughters and had more than enough space to all be comfortable, unlike last year in a 2 bedroom. The view from the balcony was amazing! We had friends staying at the resort as well with their 4 children and we had enough space to have 11 of us sitting around comfortably visiting. Devon's response time to any and all questions we had is unheard of. He made this trip so smooth. We will definitely be going back to Portifino and staying in this condo!

Great place for family and fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

I have no idea what the previous renter is talking about. At first I couldn't turn the foyer light on so I called and come to find out someone had turned the dinner switch all the way down instead of turning the light off properly! There was an abun of linens and basic necessities. My children relished in the fact that there were beach toys and floats ready and waiting in the condo. It saved me tons of money too. The master closet being used as the owners closet is just par for the course. Everywhere I have ever stayed from New Jersey to Florida has one closet or another locked. We were pleasantly surprised by the owners aftention to detail and readiness/willingness to help in anyway possible. He even helped us find the closest all night pharmacy when one of our children became ill late at night. His rates are reasonable and the views are great. I especially like the memory foam mattress in the third bedroom. It was great for napping on with our youngest child who stayed in that room. I was amazed at how very quiet the unit was. You could not hear anyone above us or beside us, which is rare in any form of condominium/apartment setting. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will Definetly be back this summer!
