About Carly

As a Pensacola native, I love coming back home. Currently I reside in Atlanta with my husband and visit on the few times our unit is unrented. My family lives here still so we enjoy having the opportunity to get together for a few weeks throughout the year here at the Portofino.

Carly purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carly chose Pensacola Beach

As Pensacola is home to my husband it was an easy decision to choose this vacation spot on the beautiful white beaches and clear blue waters here on the gulf. It's also easy to get to and from the Pensacola Airport yet remote enough that it's never overcrowded!

We enjoy so many things about the Portofino, from the infinite pools with waitstaff to attend to you, the miles of undeveloped beaches to stroll down, close restaurants and shopping, as well as the Portofino's boat that will take you from the dock to the Pensacola boardwalk and back several times daily.

What makes this condo unique

We know our condo has some great benefits, especially over the 1 and 2 bedroom units. Our balcony has a panoramic view of the west, from the gulf to the sound, giving us an unobstructed view of the sunset daily! With over 500 square feet of patio space you can sit in our adirondack chairs and enjoy the view or grill out with your whole group. We also love our open floor plan. The kitchen, dining and living room are great for big groups. Our building is also conveniently located just left of the Lifestyle Center for quick access to the infinite pools or a stroll along the sound. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do!

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We just left your beautiful condo! Everything was perfect! Your kitchen was so well stocked and had everything we needed. It truly is a slice of Heaven. The views are breathtaking. We had an awesome time! Thanks so much for being the perfect owner who truly believes in customer service. We will definitely be returning!

Peace on Earth

  • 5 of 5

It was like we had the ocean all to ourselves. SO peaceful, roomy, and calm.

WHERE do I start? When you cross the bridge into Pensacola, you can see right away that it's a fun beach with lots of cute restaurants and shops, but Portofino Resort is passed all the commotion.

The road up to the gate is lined with TONS of gorgeous palm trees. When you pull up to the gate, you realize that this is an UPSCALE resort. The gate staff were all smiles, had our name-printed key cards ready, and once they gave us our parking pass and pointed us in the right direction, we were on our way! The reserved spaces are super convenient. NO trodding over hot pavement to get to a car that's been baking in the sun.

Carly was super cool about checking on us to make sure our entry was seamless, recommending restaurants, and the like. That level of care didn't go unnoticed.

My husband and my mom both commented that the grounds reminded them of a Disney Park. I think what they meant is that the landscaping/brick drives/bright architecture lend themselves to that manicured/fantasy vibe.

The first thing that struck me was that there were double doors leading into the condo. As in, two, giant doors that opened up into a lovely entry foyer. The roominess has to be one of my favorite parts of this condo.

At one point, we had EIGHT people sleeping comfortably, and we didn't use the pull-outs or crib.

Not to sound miserly, but even if we had stayed at a budget hotel, to have beds for THAT many people wouldn't have cost what we paid for this place per night...and this was UPSCALE.

The MAJOR thing is the view and the patio. I've never had a view like that in my life. Every room had floor to ceiling windows! We could see beaches all around us. The sunset was amazing, to say the least. I'm one of those who likes to focus on that bit between the sky and the sea that goes on forever. To drink my coffee staring at it every morning was so peaceful.

The kitchen was just as good as everyone else here has said. The linens and mattresses were super comfy (and I'm picky).

And my last really important mention I would like to make is how close all the pools and the beach were. The sand was soooo clean, and there was a pool everywhere you turned LOL. But yeah, It was so nice to go back to the room easily. Especially since we had a toddler in tow.

Book it y'all. This place is cozy, clean, and worth way more than we paid.

Owner's Response: Wow Jill! You may get 5 Stars for your thorough review. We really agree with everything you said! I'm so glad you felt you guys got a great value for the condo and resort amenities. Your family came at the PERFECT time to enjoy the warmth of summer's end. September and October are truly our favorite months at the beach weather wise. We hope your family will be back again in the future to stay again. Warmly, the Graysons

A perfect VRBO get away

  • 5 of 5

A took my work team of 4 women for a week of team building and your place was spectacular. I've stayed at other condos at Portofino but the size of your condo was fantastic! We especially appreciated 3 queen beds and 1 king bed, all of which were super comfy! The view was spectacular and every evening was scheduled around that sunset. Thank you for an amazing experience!

Owner's Response: Dawn, Thanks for your kind words. The condo really is great for groups! The three bedroom units are so much larger than the 2s. I'm sure you all enjoyed our expansive balcony for the sunsets! We hope you can come stay in our condo again. The Grayson

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have one review but I am happy to say again that we had a great time!! The unit at tower 4 unit 1107 met every need we had. Three bedrooms, each with their own bath. A wonderful view!! The resort could not have been more cooperative. We had family from Texas that rented a house in Navarre, but with our consent were able to join us for fellowship and meals. We would highly recommend this rental.

Each year we strive to make the condo more comfortable than the last by upgrading the bedding, getting new sheets and pillows, etc. We are glad you enjoyed all the comforts of home in our condo at Portofino Island Resort. Come stay again! Carly

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was comfortable, especially the beds and the Adirondack chairs on the porch. The decor in all the rooms was attractive, and the kitchen was better equipped than most rentals. I really liked the owners as well. They were very attentive and helpful with any questions I had. We would definitely stay here again!

Seriously a slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

this was our first trip with our little one (11mo) and this place was by far the best decision we have ever made! the unit itself was wonderful. so much room and pretty easily baby proof. they also have a crib and that was a winner for us. we literally just left and we are already rebooking for the same time next year. the sound/pool area is wonderful and everything is at the palm of your hands here! thank you so much! we had the best time!
