About the property

Condo 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths Free Internet Sleeps 8 MAXIMUM



This stunning 3 bedroom condo has been designer furnished with $70,000 worth of high end furnishings. This may be the nicest condo you have ever stayed in.

PORTOFINO is the ultimate luxury destination on the entire Gulf coast. Our Condo is in tower 4 and is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your time at the beach. When staying at Portofino, you need to understand which views you will get.

Ours has a spectacular Gulf and uninterrupted SW to NW view of the inter-coastal waterway and the length of the Santa Rosa Island giving some remarkable sunset views . If this unit is booked, please ask me about my other wonderful 2 bedroom Portofino and Sans Souci properties listed on VRBO.

PORTOFINO has many amenities which are yours to enjoy for free while you are here:

You will use the FULLY EQUIPPED GYM which just may be the NICEST IN THE WORLD, and overlooks the outdoor infinity pools and Santa Rosa Sound. Classes available at extra charge.

Enjoy playing on five Rubico and LIGHTED TENNIS COURTS. On-site pro who actually played on the circuit available for private or group lessons.

Swim in any of the 8 on-site HEATED pools and hot tubs.

You have free admittance to the Portofino Spa with wet and dry sauna (treatments extra) with massage therapy, body treatments, and facials.

PORTOFINO is located on the Gulf of Mexico on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach, Florida. It is an easy 25 minute drive from Pensacola International Airport (PNS).

Our condominium is located in Tower Four, on 8th floor. It has been professionally decorated and features nine-foot ceilings throughout. The entrance has eight-foot-wide double doors opening onto oversized ceramic tile flooring throughout the living area, kitchen, and baths. There are high speed internet/wireless connections at various locations in the unit. BRING YOUR LAPTOP.

As you stand in the kitchen or living area you can see the clear blue Gulf of Mexico. The 85 foot long balcony off the living area and bedrooms allows for spectacular views.

The master bedroom has a true KING SIZE BED, the 2nd bedrooms has 2 queen-sized beds and the third bedroom has one queen. Full-size washer and dryer are in the Condo for use.

There is an outdoor electric grill for your use.

There are four beach chairs/ 1 umbrella which you are welcome to take to the beach.

We live in the area and frequently use the unit for our own use so it is equipped with everything you need. Just bring your suntan lotion, beach towels and food.

Luxurious furnishings reminiscent of the finest five star hotels decorate the entire unit.

Movies are available for viewing in the unit with a nice tasteful selection for both adults and children. TV's are in each bedroom and a 42' TV is in the living room.

Unfortunately, boats and motorcycles are not allowed on the property. You will have to store them off-site.

There are 8 bath towels, 8 wash cloths, 4 hand towels provided. You will need to bring beach towels. I have balcony chairs so you can sit out and enjoy the weather. There is an initial supply of dish detergent, hand and bath soap and toilet paper and paper towels. Additional supplies are at your discretion and I suggest bringing beach towels and suntan lotion. Please note, the rental does not include daily maid service.

Pricing does not include Portofino beach chairs, the Portofino boat or taxes. Beach chairs are available in the unit and you are welcome to take them to the beach.


There is a 3 night minimum stay year round and a 6 night minimum in Jun and Jul unless I can fit you in between two other reservations

When you arrive here you will know you have found Paradise and when you leave you will be planning your next trip.

Please note, I have 2 condos in Portofino and do NOT update my calendar until all are rented for a certain time period. That way, I can offer you a different unit if this one is booked.

You must be at least 21 years old to rent and actually be staying in the unit.

OK, that is not a picture of me but is one of my Grandson. He has had too much beach. But really you can not have too much beach. I am a retired Navy Supply Corps Commander and my wife is a retired ballet dancer/teacher. I know clean and she knows nice so you will definitely have a clean/nice condo to stay in. Come join us.

Mike Moran purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mike Moran chose Pensacola Beach

Portofino is the premier destination resort on the entire Gulf Coast.

What makes this condo unique

Three bedroom units are truly a home. Stunning views, fabulous decorations, amenities unlimited.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am posting reviews left in my guest book to offset the one false review left by a customer who posted erroneous info because I would not make a refund for early departure. It is clearly stated in my email and sign in sheet that there was no refund for early departure.

1. Jun 2013...Your condo is beautiful and we truly felt at home! It had everything we needed for the week and everyone was comfy. Thank you for being helpful and professional. We have booked with VRBO several times over the years and this has been our Most pleasant experience...Ann

2. Aug 2013....Beautiful Place...Wonderful memories...Great time...Priceless! thank you for the reading material. We will definitely be back....Paula

3. Aug 2013...Amazing few days of fun, friends, and much needed relaxation. Thank you so much for sharing the condo. It was perfect in all ways-great view, great beach, pools etc. Hope to be back one day soon... the Alabama crew

4. Aug 2013...Mike we just love your holiday home. Great views and great beds. We loved the extras, games and books to read. Thank you so much. We totally loved your place and everything around it. We will be back...Woodlands Texas

5. Sep 2013 Had a great time. We loved the contemporary look. The view was great off the balcony...June

I could go back farther in time and quote more people. But hopefully between this and the other posted reviews and all the other reviews on my 4 other properties, you will get the idea that one bad apple does not reflect the quality, cleanliness and accommodation that we offer.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mike!! Beautiful 3 bedroom unit located in Tower 4 on the 8th floor. Staying at the Portofino was on my bucket list for years. Each bedroom has a beautiful view. My favorite was the room with 2 queen Beds overlooking the Bay or Sound. So tranquil and the mattress was tempurpedic or some high end pillow top. Slept like a baby. The art work is well curated. Think Veranda magazine and this will give you a better idea of the decor. High end. Everything you needed in way of pots and pans was available and all the appliances worked. There is a huge jetted jaccuzzi tub in the Master bedroom. My Sisters loved it. This tower is located closest to the Lifestyle Center where you will find a huge gym with new and well

maintained equipment with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. I am a gym person and took advantage of the facilities daily. The Spa Area located just below the Gym has a his and her section. Sauna Steam Showers lockers razors shaving body wash, shampoo and conditioner dispensers.Very nice. Thanks for letting us stay in you beautiful condo Mike. January 21st-28th 2018 Regards the Broadwater Family

Portofino is a beautiful resort with many amenities. The unit was also beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed are Portofino before but will definitely be back. The property is spectacular and the amenities are very nice. You really never have to leave the property once you arrive because there is everything you need right here. Beautiful pool and outdoor bar area, several restaurants to choose from, a spa, workout facility and the list goes on. Each building also has a pool and hot tub. The unit I stayed in was very clean and nicely decorated. It had great views of the beach and bay. Beautiful views from each bedroom. It was equipped with all kitchen essentials and the owner even provided beach chairs to use. Very nice overall experience at Portofino.

Amazing vacation in spite of Hurricane Nate!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful condo! We love the Portofino and plan to make a trip back to our hometown on a regular basis. Hopefully, we will once again be able to enjoy the fabulous veranda and view from each room next year! Thank you also for allowing us to stay an extra day to make up for the day we lost due to the hurricane that never actually hit the area. Blessings!

Spacious and beautifully decorated. Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's fifth time to rent at Portofino, and this was by far our favorite unit! Beds were super comfortable and each room had a beautiful view. Only con was there were no extra bath towels or sheets, so I had to do laundry more often when our grown kids/spouses came. Other than that, I can't imagine being more satisfied with a vacation rental. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a luxurious get away for a reasonable price. We hope to be able to return to Portofino and rent this unit again soon!
