About the property

2 bedroom, 2.5 bath sleeps 6

Portofino is situated along eight miles of untouched white sand beaches within the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Portofino is nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Sound. The Five Towers were designed with the look and feel of the Italian Mediterranean.

Our tower is located in tower 4 on the 11th floor. A king size bed in the master bedroom, Queen size bed in the second bedroom and a Queen size pull out couch in the living room comfortably sleeps six. The condo is newly furnished and offers several amenities. Our tower offers stunning panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico, Santa Rosa Bay and the Cobalt Bar.

At the Lifestyle Center, pamper yourself at the Spa Portofino that offers customized body treatments, facials, full body massages, manicures and pedicures. These services can also be enjoyed from your room or poolside. The Lifestyle Center also features a 25-meter indoor heated Olympic pool with a soaring wood–beamed ceiling overlooking the sound. Enjoy the state-of-the-art Fitness Center, two outdoor zero-infinity pools, whirlpool spas, saunas and steam rooms. The Fitness Center allows you to view the sound as you work out on treadmills, elliptical trainers, and stairclimbers each of which has its own cable TV or DVD player. It has various weight machines and free weights with personal trainers, pilates classes, spin classes, yoga classes and water aerobics.

In addition, the Lifestyle Center offers fine dining in the Terracotta Restaurant and Cobalt Bar. The restaurant provides a unique dining experience, serving continental cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean and Italian influence. The lush outdoor pavilion has a full service bar and grill for your needs as you enjoy the two pools.

For the athletic minded, there are five lighted Rubico (clay) tennis courts. For the water sports activist, many water sports are available for both shorelines. These include on site rentals for jet skis, kayaks, sailboats, boogie boards, water bikes and even a water trampoline for the kids. There are also bike rentals and hiking on the Gulf Island National Seashore’s paved trails. What more can a family ask for. There’s something for everyone.

Rental service is also available to have your beach chairs and umbrella set-up for you when you arrive on the beach. If guests would rather shop, they can board a 65 foot Catamaran which travels to and from the Boardwalk, an exciting entertainment, shopping and dining area. Relax and revitalize you spirit at Portofino Island Resort and Spa. Paradise awaits you.

Why Ray Hays chose North West Florida

After travelling the gulf coast on vacations, we kept gravitating back to this beautiful resort location.

Great family resort with more activities in a day than a person can manage. Located between the Gulf of Mexico and Pensacola Bay this property offers all the luxury of a five star resort with the beauty of a Island getaway.

Family vacation

The apt is beautiful and the views from patio are simply spectacular. The pools and outdoor sports will keep you busy all day. The complex offers restaurants but go to town for food. Also bring your own beach towel they are not provided. This is a great spot to relax and unwind from life's stress.

Very enjoyable and relaxing with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very pleasantly furnished and gave a sense of relaxation and comfort and at the same time a touch of class. The views from each of the rooms were spectacular. Everything needed to have an enjoyable stay was provided. The whole Portofino property is amazing with very helpful and friendly staff that go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant. Will for sure return in a heart beat.

Amazing property and the condo was better than described.

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything you could need. Best view I have ever had. Away from the crowd of the town yet only a 10 minute drive. This condo makes you feel like you on your own private island. Ray was great to work with and the pictures do not do the unit justice. We can't wait to go back!

Amazing room on an excellent property In a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Portofino and the condo we stayed in were both above expectations. Transacting with the owner and check in were both easy and pleasant. The room was beautiful with all the amenities you could need including an outdoor grill on the balcony ( which cooked great)! The view from the room was spectacular. You were high above the pool which was glowing at night with subtle lights and tiki torches. There was a beautiful view of the bay and the gulf beyond the pool. The beds were comfortable and clean. Between the balcony and living area there was plenty of room to lounge around and just relax. The property was just as beautiful as the room with ample activities including paddle boarding and kayaking on either the bay or at the beach. There was both a main pool area with a bar and grill as well as individual pools for each building. The first night we went we were the only ones in our buildings pool and had the pool and hot tub all to ourselves! After that the time that we didn't spend at the beautiful beach was spent at the main pool. The main pool was spectacular with a great view of the bay from virtually anywhere in the pool. The pool was never too crowded, the drink prices were reasonable and there were plenty of umbrellas around to escape under from the sun.

The city of Pensacola was great too. There was a vibrant downtown with plenty of restaurants. Beachside restaurants were scattered along the beach and bay. Most of these had great views and nice outdoor areas. There was even a civil war fort at the end of the beach that was fun to visit. All in all this was a great place to vacation. I will definitely be back. Hopefully soon!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise with the rest of the world!
