Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My wife, Carol and I live in Houston, TX and we own our medical/professional business. We love to travel and visit beautiful and exotic places. The gorgeous beaches along the Florida panhandle have long been one of our favorite locations to visit. When the opportunity came along to purchase a luxury vacation home on the beach in a world class resort like Portofino, we jumped at the opportunity. We visit our vacation home several times a year and we love sharing the experience with our friends, family and guests.
Why the Owner Chose Portofino: Our family has vacationed in Pensacola Beach area and Portofino many times in the past and we absolutely love the views, the pristine, white sandy beaches and the laid back lifestyle of Pensacola. Spending a week in a beautiful, luxury resort, like Portofino is such a restful and rejuvenating experience. Our plan is to someday retire to the area. In the meantime, we visit as often as we can and we would like to share our lovely condo and the experience of a relaxing Portofino vacation with other families looking for an exceptional and relaxing vacation experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The views from our condo are tremendous! It is a magical, relaxing escape from the everyday stress of life and has something for everyone, young and old alike! Watching a beautiful sunrise, dolphins jumping in the waves, or just a stroll along the beautiful white beach observing the wildlife is a unique experience we would love to share with your family
