  • Awesome in every way!

    "I procrastinated writing a review because I want to keep this gem to ourselves!! The condo and property were even more impressive than advertised. The owners, Mr and Ms Renner , are incredibly responsive and a great resource. Their condo is PERFECT! We have 5 teenagers, boys and girls and they all LOVED it!!! The Renners condo is huge- tons of room. Our best friends and their kids rented the condo next to ours which was owned by Portofino. I must say our condo was much more homey- the Renners condo is 3 bedroom and 3 1/2 beautiful baths but the extra stuff you don't even think of was a huge help ie- tons of dishes, cooking supplies, spices, baggies- all the little stuff that would cost tons to buy just to use for a few days. In return we left olive oil, detergent, etc- pay it forward. Fully equipped kitchen which was much needed because I cooked for both families! The Renners gave me advice on where to shop for groceries. The cable/ satellite/ TV whatever it is is slow but who cares! Anyone who goes to watch TV should not go! Mr Renner was honest about the Towers of Portofino - his condo is in tower 5 which was perfect. Close to lagoon and beach and private. Tower 1 is right by entrance and activity. Each tower had its own private pool. For some reason the "main" pool at the spa and leading to the lagoon is super crowded but the pool for our Tower was perfect. Beach was awesome- a simple walk across the street. And I lived that the waves weren't dangerous at all. The lagoon area is smaller than it seems in advertisements and the services at Portofino are in my humble opinion way overpriced but the condo is NOT OVERPRICED. We went on the dolphin cruise from Portofino which was gorgeous but you can get much better price for same thing in town. Same for the "water park" at Portofino- way overpriced and do NOT buy more than one hour for your kids. They will be DONE after an hour and every kid gets chafed by life jackets. Mr Renner will be honest and his condo is well worth it! Just please don't book his condo before I get a chance to for our next spring break! So much better in every way than Destin!"

  • Portofino VRBO!!

    "This condo is beautifully and exactly like the photos. The description is accurate. The Deck is incredible and the view is splendid. Carl also provided wonderful ideas for where to enjoy dinner and activities while in the Pensacola area. IF he tells you where not to go listen. Definitely go to the restaurants that he says to go to. He knows the market. The Portofino Staff is attentive however respectful to give you privacy. The Spa was fantastic. The atmosphere at Portofino Island resort are wonderful for all ages. We loved this condo. Carl answered all questions. a few things you have to do when you stay here. Go to the naval air museum. plan at least half to 3/4's of a day. it is worth it. Go on the sunset cruise aboard the Portofino 1. Thank you!"

  • Very Clean and beautiful views

    "Mr. Byrd was great to work with. He responds great to any emails sent. The view from this condo is great. You can sit out on the patio in the morning and eat breakfast the sunrise was spectacular. In the evening the view was also wonderful we seen several pods of dolphins. The sun was on the opposite side of the building so it stayed cool and the views were great because it faces the National Seashore. You can see all the way to Navarro Beach. Where this condo is located you do not get the wind so it is comfortable all day long. This was the cleanliness and niceness decorate condo we have stayed at."
