GULF FRONT, GULF VIEW 6TH FLOOR UNIT, OVERLOOKING THE GULF OF MEXICO! Indulge yourself in paradise! Wake up to unobstructed views of the sunrise over the ocean, dolphins cruising the shoreline, and the relaxing sound of the surf.

Portofino Resort is referred to as the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Island for a good reason. Situated on 28 acres, 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.

Our condominium unit is equipped with everything you'll to make this your 'home away from home'. We offer a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath unit, with a king-size bed in the master suite, two separate closets, private Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, and toilet room. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed, and its own private full bath. Each bedroom and the main living area feature a direct view of the gulf, and access to the 28-foot balcony. Enjoy outdoor dining or just relax and enjoy the spectacular view on the balcony which features a glass rail to allow un-obstructed viewing of the gulf and Portofino Beach.

***Kitchen is fully equipped for making a gourmet meal, and includes a large, side-by-side refrigerator, flat surface stove, convection oven, full-size microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and a full array of dishes and cookware. The dining room table seats six, with an eight-foot snack bar with three barstools. Full linens are provided and there is a full-size washer and dryer in the unit. A grocery shopping service is also available.

Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort are at least 300 ft away from each other, and offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing.

The $5,000,000, 40,000-square-foot Lifestyle Center has two outdoor infinity pools with two large hot tubs, and an Olympic-size 25-meter heated indoor lap pool, as well as a large private indoor hot tub. It has separate men's and women's areas which each feature sauna and steam rooms, as well as private lockers and shower facilities complete with all toiletries.

Upstairs there is a state-of-the-art work-out facility with free weights, Cybex weight machines, and True brand treadmills, elliptical machines, and bicycles. There is also a smoothie/snack bar, featuring Starbucks coffee. Each treadmill and bicycle has its own Flat screen TV with DVD player. There is also a special room with personal trainers available for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, spin classes, and many others. Water aerobics are taught in the indoor pool.

There are five, lighted, Rubico Hydro tennis courts on the property. The spa also offers massage therapy, facials, and various body treatments.

Dining - Something for everyone!!
On property dining is made easy with choices of fine dining to pool side. For an upscale dining experience Terracotta is a must, featuring contemporary European cuisine in a casual but elegant atmosphere. Or bring the whole family for a more casual dining experience at Terrazzo Grille. The restaurant offers outdoor patio seating beneath the broad Florida sky. Kick back and listen to live music (in season) while you select from a menu featuring fresh salads, deli sandwiches, traditional po-boys, gourmet pizza and plenty of kid-friendly entrees. Terrazzo Grille is open seasonally as the weather cooperates.

Outdoor Activities - Get out and play!!
On both the gulf and the bay side at the complex are one- and two-person kayaks, water bikes, sailboats, surf and boogie boards for rent. Or you can rent a regular bike and ride the paved walk/bike path for miles. It does not get any better than this!

Nearby Attractions - So much to do!!
There is a 65-passenger catamaran that can take you to the boardwalk for shopping, or across the bay to beautiful Tiger Point Country Club and Golf course. Or, within a short drive from the complex, you can indulge yourself in every kind of activity possible, including Pensacola Naval Museum, which is home to the Blue Angels and boasts one of the largest, indoor, air and sea museums in the world, Indian Temple Mound, a Civil War-era complex called Fort Pickens (which once held Geronimo), the Gulfarium, Historic Seville Quarter with various live music venues, cinemas, shopping, endless antique stores and restaurants, fishing (shore, dock, and charters), miniature golf, electric funny car rental, jet ski rental, etc.

You must be at least 23 years of age to rent. This is a no pet, no smoking rental unit, located 15 minutes from downtown Pensacola, and 25 minutes from the local airport, with taxi service available. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have on the complex, services, or area. We will be glad to help.
