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 North West Florida

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.

What makes this condo unique

We are on the 19th floor with incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico and a little sliver of the Santa Rosa Sound. We also have 2 master bedrooms with 2 maser beds. We are decorated with a Tommy Bahama island look.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were privledged to spend a week at Portofino Condos. This is our second visit to Don and Paula Sommer's condo. It is such a beautiful and comfortable condo. My family comes in from Ohio and the pools are our main attraction. The indoor pool gives us a sure guarantee that no matter what the weather...the kids can swim. The condo has a beautiful view . We only eat breakfast and lunch in the condo...but the kitchen is fully stocked. The beds are both king size and the linens and pillows are always fresh and do not look worn. We enjoy the area, knowing there is security all around the Portofino area. Thank you for making our Christmas very special.

I am so glad you stayed with us for a second visit Sincerely Paula

Great vacation unit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a week at this condo. Large balcony offers breathtaking view of both the ocean and the bay. The unit was well equipped, the beds were very comfortable and the Portofino complex will keep you busy with lots of activities if you choose to do that. You can also just relax at one of the many pools, get a massage, mani/pedi....lots of possibilities. The resort is only a few minutes drive from the heart of Pensacola Beach and many restaurants. You won't go wrong choosing this unit for your vacation. We would not hesitate to return.

5 Year Anniversary Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the Portofino many times in the past, in both Portofino owned rooms and owner rentals. We actually got married at the resort 5 years ago, which is what prompted our stay there this summer. In all of our experiences with owner rentals, this was by far the best stay we've had! The room was beautiful, the view was absolutely breathtaking, and the service we received from the owner when booking and staying was phenomenal. Very friendly owners who take great pride in their rental property. They allowed us to check in early and appreciated when we called to let them know we checked out a couple hours ahead of time. Communication via email and through VRBO was very prompt and open. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a great beach getaway! And we will be staying with you again in the future :) Thank you so much!

Absolutely gorgeous! Perfect location. Amazing amenities

  • 5 of 5

This sky home was luxurious, gorgeous, and completely updated. The master on suite bathroom is Amazing. Tiled shower AND soaker tub. The location was perfect. The Portofino Resort has everything: 6 pools, 5 hot tubs, spa, fitness center, several restaurants. You can also rent chair/umbrella rental, Kayaks, boogie boards, etc. Our budget didn't allow us to do any extras, but our vacation still couldn't have been any better! We brought beach chairs, and stopped at the grocery store after we checked in. You can eat indoors, pool-side, and at the beach. The food is pricey, but we treated ourselves to dinner once and drinks by the pool several times. Impeccable service. Everywhere! There is always visible security. I felt completely comfortable with my daughter, 14, and her friend, 13, going to the main pool and entertainment area on their own. This stay was exactly what we needed! Worth every penny.
