Property description

Looking for a relaxing and memorable vacation? The Portofino Resort and Spa on Pensacola Beach is exactly what you're looking for. Situated on 28 acres, The Portofino is directly next to the undisturbed Gulf Island National Seashore and overlooks the sugar white sand and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is isolated from the noise and congestion of busy beach towns, yet is just minutes away from the shopping and restaurants of The Boardwalk and the historic city of Pensacola.

Imagine waking up every morning to the sounds of waves on the beach and the cool breezes off the Gulf. You can enjoy breakfast on the balcony with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. After breakfast, head over to The Lifestyle Center for a massage at the Aveda European Spa or take a yoga class at the state-of-the-art Fitness Center.

You can also take a swim in the indoor Junior Olympic swimming pool overlooking Santa Rosa Bay or if the weather is nice, use the two infinity-edge outdoor swimming pools, each with its own spa. For lunch, you can eat by the pool or dine inside at the Terra Cotta Restuarant, where they serve both lunch and dinner.

After lunch, you can take a walk along the beach, rent a bike and ride through the National Seashore, or take a tennis lesson from the pro on one of the five Rubico clay tennis courts. You can also visit downtown Pensacola, go to the Gulf Breeze Zoo, or visit the Naval Air Museum where the Blue Angels are based.

For dinner, there is a fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor grill on the balcony. But since you're on vacation, the Boardwalk is a quick five minute drive that has many restuarants to choose from. Once back in the condo, you can watch TV, read a book, or fall asleep, knowing you can wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

Whatever you choose to do, The Portofino's luxury combined with one of the world's most beautiful beaches will make your vacation a memorable one.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in the Atlanta suburb of Cumming, Georgia. I work at a hospital near us, and my wife, Kristine, stays at home taking care of our four children. Though Pensacola Beach is five hours away, its still the closest beach to us. We all enjoy the road trip, as it helps us bond as a family. We take a lot of pride in keeping our Portofino Condo perfect and our guests happy. The condo is filled with amenities to meet our family's needs, and we have the best housekeeper who keeps it spotless. We care about your experiences and will do everything we can to make sure you come back.

Why the Owner Chose Pensacola Beach, FL, USA:
We love Pensacola Beach for its beautiful white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf. Most importantly, it is quiet and peaceful. We have looked throughout the Panhandle of Florida for a second home, and the other beach towns were just too crowded. We didn't want to wait for two hours at a restaurant or get up early just to secure a spot on the beach. Pensacola was perfect for us, with its Historic Downtown, Pensacola Naval Air Station, and the conveniences of a larger city, there are plenty of things for us to do. The Portofino is three miles from the Boardwalk, where all of the beachfront restaurants and gift shops are. It is also the last resort on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach, with twelve miles of un-touched National Seashore, you will always find a peaceful beach to relax on.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Portofino has the best amenities of any resort you will find. It is a gate-guarded community, so the only people enjoying the amenities are guests and owners. With eight pools and spas (one indoor), a large Fitness Center, a restaurant that provides pool-side service, five clay tennis courts, Adventure Cove for the kids, and even beach chair service. The resort spans from the Gulf to the Bay, allowing great views from every condo and virtually anywhere on the resort. Our Homeowners Association and the Premier Management group have both done an excellent job maintaining and introducing new amenities for our guests to enjoy.
