Elegant Tuscany columns, domed entryway, arched ceilings, granite counter tops, imported Italian floor tile, and the master bathroom Roman whirlpool tub only begin to describe Portofino’s distinct Mediterranean feel.

Spa Portofino also features a gourmet restaurant as well as a grill, an indoor Olympic pool with a soaring wood-beamed ceiling, state-of-the-art fitness center, two outdoor zero-infinity pools and decks overlooking the magnificent Santa Rosa Sound, whirlpool spas, saunas, steam rooms, and (seasonal) Kids' Camp.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: RAY AND I (MARCIA) ARE FROM NEW ORLEANS AND HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 50 YEARS. WOW! WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT? WE HAVE 3 GROWN SONS AND 9 GRANDCHILDREN. WE HAVE ALWAYS BOUGHT APARTMENT HOUSES, AND SHOPPING CENTERS, BUT WE ALWAYS RENTED CONDOS. BUT WE WERE ALWAYS LOOKING TO BUY A CONDO IF WE COULD FIND ONE WE LIKED WELL ENOUGH. WE LOVED THIS ONE, SO IT TOOK US ABOUT 2 MINUTES TO BUY IT AFTER WE SAW IT. I (MARCIA) AM AN ARTIST AND A DECORATOR, I'VE ALSO WRITTEN AND GOTTEN PUBLISHED 3 DIET COOKBOOKS, NO SALT, NO SUGAR, AND NO FAT NO APOLOGIES AND 2 OTHERS. AND YES, IT ISN'T NO FOOD NO TASTE. MY HUSBAND, RAY, LOOKS FOR PROPERTIES TO BUY, AND ALSO BUYS AND SELLS STOCKS IN THE STOCK MARKET. I HANDLE ALL THE PROPERTIES. OH, I FORGOT, MY MAIN LOVE IS SINGING. I'VE DIRECTED CHOIRS FOR AT LEAST 30 YEARS BECAUSE SOMETIMES TWO AT DIFFERENT CHURCHES AND I'VE BEEN A CANTOR FOR MANY YEARS,TOO. I PROBABLY SHOULD WRITE A BOOK ON HOW TO STAY MARRIED FOR 50 YEARS. IT WILL BE A ONE SENTENCE BOOK. DON'T GET DIVORCED.

              Why the Owner Chose Portofino:
              We looked for years for the best and most beautiful views of the Gulf and found even more at The Porotifino and we love to share our pleasure with other people.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Though the property is large, it is easier to get around the property more than you would think. Tower 5 has it own short exit to the beach which is better than the other towers. Also, those that have trouble walking, there is plenty of parking around Life Center. We also loved the private Heated pool and Jacuzzi connected to our tower surround by Palm trees and Tropical plants.
