About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
This is truly a very special place to create a memorable vacation. From the moment you arrive, a set of elegant double entry doors welcome you in to the penthouse which is tastefully decorated with high end furniture collections like Hemingway and Thomasville. You’ll experience stunning views of the crystal clear blue/green water and sugar white sand from every window and balcony. The 11' coffered ceilings in this penthouse, as opposed to 9' or 10' flat ceilings in common units, gives you a feeling of grandeur and elegance. The fully outfitted kitchen has high quality appliances and a side by side ice maker refrigerator. You’ll find beautiful Uba Tuba granite counter tops in the kitchen and both bathrooms. The master bath has a jetted tub and his/her sinks. Both bedrooms have king size beds. The second bedroom in this penthouse also has a larger plantation style window than the common units as all windows in a penthouse are a foot or two larger due to the added ceiling height. There is a queen size leather sofa bed and two leather recliners in the living room.
The electronics are supreme compared to the vast majority of units with wonderful 1080P high definition LCD TV's in the family room (55'), master bedroom (45'), and secondary bedroom (32'). A wonderful Bose cinemate surround system in the family room provides a wonderful movie watching experience. There are Blue Ray DVD players in all television locations with smart DVD players in the Master bedroom and Living Room which allow you to log into you Netflix account . We also have 1080P Direct TV service in all three television locations. There is also a remote controlled compact stereo/CD player for listening to music and free high speed wireless internet. We own three parking spaces. One is directly in front of the main tower entrance which you will find to be incredibly convenient.
Portofino has 8 swimming pools that are heated year round, one conveniently located immediately adjacent to each tower. The main pool area consists of two bay front free-form negative edge pools. There is often live music in this area. There is an outdoor bar and grill immediately adjacent to the main pools along with poolside wait staff. There is a fine restaurant adjacent to this area within the Lifestyle building which overlooks this main pool area as well. Fine chef's are available with 48 hours notice to prepare a gourmet meal for you in your condo if you like. The well-equipped workout room has available trainers and offers instructor lead exercise classes. It is located on the second floor of the Lifestyle building and also overlooks the main pool area and bay from a beautiful second story vantage point. For those wishing to vacation in the cooler months, there is an indoor heated Olympic size pool and hot tub also in the Lifestyle building adjacent to the main pool area and the full service spa. There are five clay tennis courts with professional instruction available. For those vacationing with children, Portofino has a children’s water park on the bay area visible from the main pool area and Lifestyle building. Enrolling your children in the available kid's day camps which are full of wonderful activities are a blast for the children and a great option for the adults to have some time alone. Beach service is available as is rental of watercraft, boogie boards, surf boards, etc. Depending on the time of year, there is wait staff on the beach as well. For your convenience or as an interesting excursion, a ferry commutes on a frequent schedule between Portofino and the boardwalk/public beach area for a small fee.

About the owner: Hello, my name is Gilbert Medina. I am a physician (Anesthesiologist) from San Antonio. My wife Rosalinda and I discovered Portofino in 2003 and we are certain that it is absolutely one of the finest beach destinations in the world. The most wonderful sand in the world coupled with a beautiful world class facility with tremendous amenities. We would love to share our home with your family so that you may enjoy one of God's greatest gifts to mankind, the Emerald Coast of Florida's beaches, where the sand is as white as sugar.
Why the Owner Chose Pensacola Beach, FL, USA:
This PENTHOUSE is much more beautiful and spacious than typical beachfront lodging. It feels like home. Also, we love that it is a semi-private beach, far away from the very busy public beaches. The design of the building maximizes your view from every location and also makes it incredibly easy to get to your unit from wherever you park. If you want to get to the busier private beaches and boardwalk section, there is a ferry from the property every hour.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Direct GULF FRONT view from all rooms of the condo and the balcony from high up at the PENTHOUSE level (21st floor). There are higher ceilings which allow for coffered ceilings and a very large beautiful plantation style window in the second bedroom. Supreme electronics throughout(55', 45', and 32' 1080P LCD TV's with Bose Cinemate surround in the family room, Sony Blue Ray players, built in grill on the patio, 8 heated pools throughout the year with one of them being an indoor Olympic sized pool, very frequent live music by the main pool area which has two very large free-form negative edge pools. Other Portofino amenities include a wonderful spa, gourmet restaurant, workout area on the second floor overlooking the main pool area and the bay behind it, 5 clay tennis courts with professional lessons available, beach service, water equipment rentals, bicycle rentals, children's water park, water taxi to the boardwalk business district, and kids camp so the adults can have a little free time.
