Portofino condo description

Finally! A beach condo decorated and furnished for and by young, contemporary professionals with all-inclusive rates. No gimmicky themes, no tacky decorations, no white washed furniture, fake plants or tropical patterns! No hidden expenses or added fees. 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!
