About the property

Condo 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths Free Internet Sleeps 8

PLEASE NOTE A REFUNDABLE $350 DAMAGE DEPOSIT IS INCLUDED IN THE VRBO QUOTED RATES BUT YOU WILL GET THAT BACK WHEN THERE ARE NO DAMAGES.

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.

This is a NO SMOKING/NO PETS UNIT.

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.

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.

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!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. There are towels and sheets for 8 people to stay in the unit and a great washer and dryer should you have more than the unit is set up for.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family gathers at Portofino for a family reunion. This was our first time in this condo and we loved it. It is in Tower 4 on the 8th floor. Our grandkids like to be close to the large pool so it was perfect for our group. The condo is beautifully decorated and has plenty of seating. There is plenty of cabinet space in the kitchen and the washer and dryer look new. It is obvious the owner takes great care of this property. The beds are very comfortable. The view of the gulf and sound is amazing as well and we had the most wonderful breeze on the balcony. We are already looking forward to our next stay. Thanks Mike!

My family loved staying at this condo. It was so nice and very well equipped. The owner was especially helpful with any of our questions.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review and come back anytime. Fall is especially beautiful with fewer people, great weather and the blue Angle Homecoming show Nov 10-11. Or come during the summer and enjoy the Blue Wahoos AA baseball team playing in the most beautiful minor league stadium in the country. Regardless, Portofino is fabulous and your staying with us is greatly appreciated.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in this beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable condo. The views are great: the beach, the bay and the gorgeous beach houses! This was our second stay at Portifino; we would recommend the complex and this condo to everyone. It was perfect for our family of 7 adults. Definitely want to come back!

Beautiful

Best trip made perfect by this beautiful condo. Views were spectacular! Family of 5 adults all enjoyed being together with plenty of space. Beach across the street was used daily. Pool was an added enjoyment in the evenings. Lovely place to relax and would love to come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and your nice review. Please come again and visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We went snorkeling last week 2 miles from Portofino and saw 12 sea turtles, one octopus and thousands of other fish; only a few tropicals but a truly spectacular swim.
