About the property

Paradise! Come for a visit and fall in love!

Welcome to paradise!! We would like to welcome you to our beautiful home away from home! The best part is the amazing gulf views from every room and the countless activities for everyone of all ages!

Our Pensacola Beach condo rental unit is located at the Portofino Resort. The Portofino is a 28 acre luxury resort that is located on the Gulf of Mexico in Pensacola Beach, Florida. The Portofino features five towers that are at least 300 feet away from each other and each offer their own large heated pool, hot tub, umbrella tables and chairs, and restrooms.

There is a 40,000 square foot Lifestyle Center on the property. The Lifestyle Center has two outdoor infinity pools, two large hot tubs, and an Olympic size indoor pool, as well as a large private indoor hot tub. It has separate men's and women's areas that each have a sauna, steam rooms, private lockers, and shower facilities with toiletries available. There is a spa with massage therapy, body treatments, and facials available. Upstairs there is a state-of-the-art work-out facility with views of the Infinity pools and the beautiful Santa Rosa Sound Bay. There is a natural juice and snack bar featuring Starbucks Coffee. Personal trainers, Pilates, Spin classes, Yoga classes and water aerobics are also available.

There are five, lighted Rubico Hydro tennis courts on the property. A free water shuttle will take you to the beautiful Tiger Point Championship Golf Course.

The Portofino is a kid friendly resort with many things available for your child to do. Whether they want to engage and play with other kids their age, or the parents want a little alone time, there is always a kid’s program going on for your child to enjoy. High Tide Kid‘s Club, Kid’s Korner, and Kids’ Night Out are full of fun activities and learning experiences for kids starting at age four through teens! Call concierge for booking, pricing, and reservation information.

If you get hungry there are plenty of dining options to choose from! The Terracotta is a fine dining restaurant located at the Lifestyle center. Terrazzo Grill is an outdoor grill restaurant by the pools, as well as an indoor/outdoor bar. Live music is often featured by the pools, and there is a fireworks show every Tuesday night over the Bay. Food from any of the dining facilities can be ordered and delivered to your room. Also you may choose to take advantage of Chef-to-you. With this service a chef will come to your unit and cook a meal specially prepared for you!

Both the Bay and Gulf sides offer one and two person kayaks, water bikes, sailboats, and surf and boogie boards for rent. You can also rent bicycles to ride the paved bike paths for miles! There is a 65- passenger catamaran on the bay side that can take you to the boardwalk for shopping, restaurants, and more! The Blue Angels is an air show performance from the nearby Naval Base that occurs twice a year and you can enjoy it here! You are also just a short drive from many nearby attractions including The Pensacola Naval Museum - which is home to the Blue Angels and boasts one of the largest indoor air and sea museums in the world, Indian Temple Mounds, Fort Pickens - a Civil War-era complex which once held Geronimo, The Gulfarium, The Gulf Breeze Zoo, Five Flags Motor Speedway, The Seville Quarter - home to many live music venues, cinemas, horseback riding, shopping, restaurants, fishing, jet ski rentals, and so much more!

Our condominium is located in Tower 5 on the 16th floor. It has 1335 square feet of living area, featuring two bedrooms, two and a half baths, living and dining room, kitchen, laundry, and a beautiful 28 foot balcony with sweeping gulf views. The entrance is an eight foot wide, double door opening to nine foot ceilings, ceramic tile and crown molding throughout, and an instant view of the gulf!

Our condominium unit is equipped with everything you need to make this your home for your stay. The kitchen features maple cabinets, granite counter tops, and is fully equipped for making a gourmet meal. It includes a large, side by side refrigerator, flat surface stove, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, toaster, coffee maker, blender, and an array of dishes and cookware. The dining room is located between the kitchen and living room and features a dining room table with seating for six and an additional three bar stools next to the bar.

The living room features the beautiful blues of the ocean! There is queen size sleeper sofa, two leather recliners, a suede lounge chair, a beautiful distressed dresser stocked with games and family fun, and a 55 inch flat screen HDTV mounted on the wall. A blueray player and a Kicker Ipod station are located on the dresser in the living room for your entertainment, and free WI-FI access is available. A separate queen size sleeper sofa and sitting area are located between the main living area and the dining room. All linens and pillows needed for both sleeper sofas are already in the unit and ready for your use! The half bath is located off of the living/dining area. The back wall of the condo features floor to ceiling glass doors looking out onto the spacious balcony and gulf! You can literally see the gulf from every room! It makes this unit a wonderful beach escape!

The master bedroom features a four post king size bed, two night stands, and a dresser all with granite tops, a 42 inch flat screen HDTV and dvd player, and a beautiful lounge chair. The room has a nine foot, floor to ceiling, sliding glass door along the entire length of the room with beautiful gulf views you can even see from the bed, perfect for reading and watching the sunrise!

The balcony is our favorite spot of the condo! It is 28 feet of beautiful views! It features a stainless steel electric grill, a pub table with four chairs, and a glass rail to allow un-obstructed views from every angle! From the balcony you can see the eight plus miles of undeveloped Gulf Island National Seashore full of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore! We often can see the dolphins playing near the shoreline! Looking to the left you can see the Bay, the tennis courts, the Lifestyle center, and pools.

This condo is located only 15 minutes from downtown Pensacola and 25 minutes from the local airport with taxi services available.

Very nice! Great resort, beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for Mother's Day weekend and it was wonderful! The condo was so pretty and very clean. Everything was just as pictured and even more beautiful in person. When we arrived there was a wedding taking place on the beach. We sat on our balcony and watched the wedding and the water while we grilled. It was so peaceful and serene. The next morning we got up early and went on the dolphin cruise offered through the Portofino. It was awesome! It lasted about three hours and we saw so many dolphins. The tour guide was very informative and pointed out all the local sights. He gave us the option to get off at the boardwalk so we did. He took down our names. We enjoyed a leisurely walk and lunch at the boardwalk. The boat then met us back at the dock and brought us back to the portofino. It was so wonderful to get to enjoy the sights and activities around Pensacola without having to drive or fight traffic. When we arrived back there was a band playing by the pool. We sat and ate at the grill and listened to the band. If you sit out there and eat get the fajitas, they were excellent! Overall it was a very relaxing and wonderful getaway with my family. The Portofino really makes it easy to have a good time! This was the nicest condo we have stayed in. We will definitely be returning!

This condo really has it all!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this condo recently and it was just perfect! The condo is newly renovated and upgraded and it shows! So nice! Brand new furniture! Very clean! Everything you needed for your stay was included! We loved getting groceries and cooking for our family right there on the balcony! And the view was amazing!! You can see the beach and the bay from the balcony and they are both wonderful! Beautiful sunrises! The Portofino is great with so much to do! We loved the infinity pool and the outdoor bar and grill! Perfect for families! The owners are so nice and easy to work with and you can tell that they truly love and take care of this place! Easily the nicest condo I've ever stayed in! We will definitely be returning! :)
