Portofino condo description

WE BELIEVE THAT PORTOFINO IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH DESTINATIONS IN THE WORLD!!! THIS IS A 21ST FLOOR GULF FRONT PENTHOUSE WITH DIRECT GULF VIEWS FROM ALL ROOMS AND BALCONY IN THE NEWEST OF FIVE TOWERS AT PORTOFINO. Please see the wonderful video tour done for us by a gracious guest, at: Http://www.tourfactory.com/idxr879969

This is truly a very special place to create a memorable vacation. From the moment you arrive, a set of elegant double entry doors welcome you in to the penthouse which is tastefully decorated with high end furniture collections like Hemingway and Thomasville. You’ll experience stunning views of the crystal clear blue/green water and sugar white sand from every window and balcony. The 11' coffer ceilings in this penthouse, as opposed to 9' or 10' flat ceilings in common units, gives you a feeling of extra space and comfort. The fully outfitted kitchen has high quality appliances and a side by side ice maker refrigerator. You’ll find beautiful Uba Tuba granite counter tops in the kitchen and both bathrooms. The master bath has a jetted tub and his/her sinks. Both bedrooms have king size beds. The second bedroom in this penthouse also has a larger plantation style window as all windows in a penthouse are a foot or two larger due to the added ceiling height. There is a queen size leather sofa bed and two leather recliners in the living room.
The electronics are supreme compared to the vast majority of units with wonderful 1080P high definition LCD TV's in the family room (55'), master bedroom (45'), and secondary bedroom (32'). A wonderful Bose cinemate surround system in the family room with Blue ray disc capability in family room, master bedroom and secondary bedroom. There is also a remote control Compact stereo/CD player for listening to music and free high speed wireless internet.
We own three parking spaces. One of the three is right in front of the main tower entrance which is incredibly convenient.
Portofino has 8 swimming pools that are heated year round, one conveniently located immediately adjacent to each tower. The main pool area consists of two bay front free form negative edge pools. There is often live music in this area. There is an outdoor grill and bar immediately adjacent to the main pools with poolside wait staff. There is a fine restaurant overlooking this area as well. Fine Chef's are available with 48 hours notice to prepare a gourmet meal in your condo if you like. The well equipped workout room with trainers available and instructor lead exercise classes is located on the second floor of the amenity center overlooking the main pool area and bay. For those wishing to vacation in the cooler months, there is an indoor heated Olympic size pool adjacent to the main pool area. The full service spa is also in this area. There are five clay tennis courts with Pros available. For those vacationing with children, Portofino has a children’s water park on the bay area visible from the negative edge pools. There are kid’s day camps you can enroll your children in if you want some free time. Beach service is available as is rental of watercraft, boogie boards, surf boards, etc. Depending on the time of year, there is wait staff on the beach as well. For your convenience, a ferry commutes between Portofino and the boardwalk/public beach area for a fee.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Hello, my name is Gilbert Medina. I am a physician (Anesthesiologist) from San Antonio. My wife Rosalinda and I discovered Portofino in 2003 and we are certain that it is absolutely one of the finest beach destinations in the world. The most wonderful sand in the world coupled with a beautiful world class facility with tremendous amenities. We would love to share our home with your family so that you may enjoy one of God's greatest gifts to mankind, the emerald coast of Florida's beaches, where the sand is as white as sugar.

              Why the Owner Chose Portofino:
              This PENTHOUSE is much more beautiful and spacious than typical beachfront lodging. It feels like home. Also, we loved that it was a semi-private beach, far away from the very busy public beaches. The design of the building maximizes your view from every location and also makes it incredibly easy to get to your unit from wherever you park. If you want to get to the busier private beaches and boardwalk section, there is a ferry from the property every hour.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Direct GULF FRONT view from all rooms of the condo and the balcony from high up at the PENTHOUSE level (21st floor). There are higher ceilings which allow for coffer ceilings and a very large beautiful plantation style window in the second bedroom. Supreme electronics throughout(55', 45', and 32' 1080P LCD TV's with Bose Cinemate surround in the family room, Sony Blue Ray players, built in grill on the patio, 8 heated pools throughout the year with one of them being an indoor Olympic sized pool, very frequent live music by the main pool area which has two very large free form negative edge pools. Other Portofino amenities include a wonderful spa, gourmet restaurant, work-out area on the second floor overlooking the main pool area and the bay behind it, 5 clay tennis courts with pro lessons available, beach service, water equipment rentals, bicycle rentals, children's water park, water taxi to the boardwalk business district, and kids camp so the adults can have a little free time.
