About Owner Paula and Don Sommer

We are avid world travelers. We especially love to sail and go deep sea fishing - hence the reason we are not at our condo that much - We also love snow skiing in the winter in our Colorado mountains...you can usually find us exploring other parts of the world! This picture was taken at Portofino with our granddaughter.

Owner Paula and Don Sommer purchased this condo in 2002

Why Owner Paula and Don Sommer chose Pensacola Beach

We have traveled all over the world and Pensacola Beach is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen - pristine clean white sand beaches, blue sparkling water and wonderful people.

Condo was great. The property had several issues though.

  • 4 of 5

I paid for a package for the property and had a couple problems with not being able to use equipment that was included in the package. Also, it seemed everyday was a new rule of when and where equipment was located and used. Chaotic.

Owner's Response: Hi Michele, I tried to call you to find out what package you paid for and what the problem was. I don't sell any packages i only rent my condo with everything clean and working and/or if you find something not right in the condo we have a property manager right there to get it right so your stay is wonderful and worry free. I have no clue what package you are talking about.

Very clean condo wiht breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My family was thrilled with our stay! The condo was very spacious and exceptionally clean. Before our trip, we were emailed detailed check-in/check-out instructions along with a "thing to do in Pensacola" document. When you're visiting a place for the first time, it's little touches like those that make all the difference.

I love Portofino and tell you everything i know so you will have a great time at the beach and around the island. A holiday needs to be fun and a no-brainer so you can relax and re-charge. Best regards Paula

Portafino is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Portafino very much! Other than a few glitches in our unit, the resort was wonderful. I loved the entertainment by the pool, the beautiful and spacious unit and the friendly staff. It was truly like being home away from home! Thank you for making this place so special! Our family made some great memories!

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautiful we had a wonderful stay! Only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is because the sofa sleeper was a little uncomfortable! Other then that we loved our stay and would definitely love to stay there again!

Spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful! The view we had was breathtaking! I loved having my coffee out on the balcony in the mornings. We had so much fun on the dolphin cruise and were able to see many on the morning trip! Loved the overall vibe there and will definitely be back!
