              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: I relocated to Pensacola Beach in 1993. My husband and I traveled many countries in the world but we fell in love with Pensacola Beach. We do get spoiled here by the beach's spectacular scenery - not many beaches in the world could stand a comparison to our pristine land with beautiful sugar-white dunes and emerald waters.

              Why Portofino:
              At Portofino you really feel like you are on a remote island far away from a stressful modern life yet at the same time not deprived from technology or social life in case you miss it... And so many things to do right here, without leaving the resort. The elegance and serenity of living is nestled right here on a barrier island of Santa Rosa, between the sugar-white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and Intra-coastal Waterway. You will not want to leave! Even Europeans find the place spectacular!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              With an unobstructed water view in every room you feel like on a cruise ship! At night you still see the far away city lights and the beautifully lighted Lifestyle Center Area. Family or single - you will find here home away from home and I believe that you will have an amazing vacation at Portofino that will make you wanting to come back again and again.
