This unit was decorated and furnished as if we live here, with no expenses spared. From elevator to beach - 50 yards! takes less than 60 seconds to walk to National Seashore!!!!!
A TRUE professional's home away from home with designer furnishings, gourmet kitchen, and contemporary art. This unit offers breathtaking views of the Pensacola sound and you are only footsteps away from white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of Pensacola Beach.
What makes our condo different...
The unit features contemporary designer furnishings in neutral and coordinating colors specially selected for this unit including a one-of-a-kind banquette dining set that seats 8, coordinating artwork throughout the unit that includes many pieces by renowned Louisiana artist Fonville Winans, and a gourmet kitchen with convection oven and all the conveniences of even the most well-supplied home kitchen. For the tech-savvy, there are an abundance of "toys" for which to play. The unit features 4 HDLCD televisions, many IPod/IPhone docking stations, DVD player, and LED ceiling/wall display alarm clocks.
The den contains a 42" HDLCD television with built-in IPod/IPhone docking station. The built-in component allows you to control your music selections and volume using the TV remote control. You can also listen to your music while keeping up with the game or other program. The den also features two full size sofas for plenty of seating for the entire group, along with a large, leather ottoman for more seating and/or large area for games or other activities. One sofa contains a comfortable queen sized mattress. The den also features custom draperies.
The master bedroom contains a king sized bed with memory foam mattress. It has a 37" HDLCD television. It also has an alarm clock with IPod/IPhone docking station and LED ceiling/wall display alarm clock. In addition, there are custom draperies and other furnishings including allergen free, down-like pillows.
The second bedroom contains a queen sized bed with memory foam mattress. It has a 32" HDLCD television. It also has an alarm clock with IPod/IPhone docking station and LED ceiling/wall display alarm clock. In addition, there are custom draperies and other furnishings including allergen free, down-like pillows in this bedroom as well.
In addition to the standard appliances, the kitchen features numerous sizes of wine glasses, martini glasses, highball and cocktail glasses, as well as dinnerware and stainless service for 16! The kitchen also contains a 22" HDLCD television for the chef in the group to enjoy as he/she cooks.
The unit, of course, has cable television service and wireless high-speed internet service available throughout.
Approximately 1400 square feet of living space with a dramatic, double-door entrance with mini cupola and designer lighting set the mood for your entry into this truly one of a kind beach condo. Every room has floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors that provide nearly 40 feet of breathtaking sound views.
And last but not least, this unit is given a SPRING CLEANING every time a guest leaves, by our personal housekeeper, guaranteeing this unit is the cleanest around.
PLEASE NOTE: in order to keep our unit operating to our high standards, we have had to institute an EXCESSIVE CLEANING/KEY RETURN fee to all guests. All guests, no matter how many nights rental, will pay a cleaning deposit of $150 in addition to the standard cleaning that is included. In the event that there is excessive uncleanliness, e.g. vomitus, feces, excessive garbage, trash, dirty dishes, then additional maid services will be deducted from this deposit. Additionally, if keys are not returned within 7 days, rekeying of the locks will be deducted from this deposit. It is unfortunate that some guests do not respect our home as we do, and we hope that this will prevent any excessive gross negligence of our home. Once the maid verifies that the unit is in standard expected "wear and tear/use" and all keys are returned, then the $150 is returned via check to the guest.
Additionally: Due to neglect and abuse by guests in the past, any use of the stainless outdoor grill will result in an additional $25 cleaning fee. The guest can select "use of grill" upon booking and $25 plus tax will be added to the total. Without payment of this fee, the grill will remain locked and keys will not be provided for the grill.
This unit is a unique get-away when even compared to other units at the Portofino Island Resort. This beach home is truly a place to live and play! Feel comfortable kicking back in your flip flops with a cocktail, entertaining a business associate, or hosting a dinner party. We truly wanted a place to live and play but not sacrifice the amenities we have come to expect and depend upon. We decided to open our unit to others with the same expectations, needs, and discriminating tastes!

Review #6295960 "Not your grandmother's condo" This condo is the nicest one we have stayed in yet! The kitchen is equipped with anything you could possibly need - Wolfgang Puck pots, nice stemware and other glasses, a TV, tupperware that fills an entire cabinet. Each cabinet is chocked full of quality pieces. The linens are beautiful, as is the furniture and the view. The resort offers many activities appropriate for folks of all ages. And, last but not least, the condo owners were wonderful to work with. I urge you to consider this condo for your next vacation. We will certainly return

Great Place to Vacation
Great Place to Vacation
Our family of 3 stayed here during spring break. We absolutely loved the condo! The condo is beautiful and well maintained and is decorated in a modern/contemporary way. There is no over the top or tacky beach décor. The uniquely shaped dining room table is a great place for meals that comfortably seats 8. The kitchen is very well stocked with pretty much anything you need. There are a number of ipod/iphone docking stations throughout the condo which came in handy. We also used the Playstation in the condo to watch DVDs and the owner provided well written instructions on how to use, which were very helpful. Free Wi-Fi is included and easy to access. The floor to ceiling windows provide an excellent view of the Santa Rosa Sound. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony during the day, evening and night. The in-room washer/dryer was nice to have. Indoor parking was also a plus! At the Portofino, we used the pool at our Tower, the main pool and the tennis courts. We also walked across the street to the beach and played volleyball, Frisbees, walked along the beach and just relaxed. The owner was very responsive to questions during the booking process and while we were at the condo. We really enjoyed the condo, and would definitely stay here again!

My wife and our son stayed about 4 days a few years ago and this is a beautiful condo and we have stayed in several difirent condos since. But this was our favorite place yet because of the location and the amenties. You are right at both the sound and gulf and the window view from every room in the condo is breath taken. We loved it and it's time to return back. I promise you will not be dissapointed if you book this place.

The condo was just as pictured. Everything fit the description with no surprises. We utilized the mobile luggage carriage for luggage as well as to get bags of food for the Christmas meal to the condo. My daughter-in-law is in a wheel chair and by removing the doors to the 2nd bedroom and bath, the room was accessible. The angle of the doorway also afforded privacy. The paved walk way on property as well as off also allowed her to push for about 3 miles. She was able to at least get out and continue her exercise routine. We really appreciated the kitchen appliances, dishes and extras made meal prep easy. The condo has more than enough dishes for a large dinner party. Since the weather was cold, planning and making our meals when we chose to stay in was a snap. The indoor pool was a hit for my granddaughter. We loved the beach access from the property and my daughter-in-law was able to use the walk without any problems. Club area totally accessible! We may return during the summer when we can get in more beach time. Oh, a car is really needed.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: 3 young, professional, career oriented friends who decided to buy a beach property together!
Why the Owner Chose Portofino:
Why did we buy here? Why is it not your Grandma's beach condo? 3 young, professional, career oriented friends wanted a place they could vacation without the clutter of seashell decorations, peach walls, white washed furniture or wicker. We wanted a place where we would feel at home, but could entertain our guests and business associates.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
5 star quality condo with all the luxuries of home! This place is ready to entertain, with service and barware for 16, TV's in every room, and beautiful scenery inside and out. There's even a crepe maker in the kitchen!!!
