My husband and I live in Birmingham, Alabama with our two sons. We visit the Portofino as much as we can when it's not rented and when the kiddos don't have a soccer weekend. We take pride in our condo and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. It is truly our Home away from Home!
Mandi Jowers purchased this condo in 2011
We fell in love with the Portofino on our very first visit! Our kids absolutely love all the kid friendly amenities that the Portofino has to offer. They are always playing tennis, kayaking, playing in Adventure Cove or swimming in one of the numerous pools. We of course love the wine tastings and dinners by the pool. I am certain that you will enjoy our condo as much as we do!
Thank you so much for accommodating our last minute spring break trip. Your condo was beautiful and perfect for spending our time together :)
We had a great time in this condo. Great views! Comfortable sofa beds as stated! Owner was very kind and great to work with in planning our vacation.
I met two girlfriends who traveled to PB and we had a wonderful week in this condo at Portofino. The PH view was amazing the condo was clean and furnished so comfortably. Would love to stay again next year! Thank you Mandi
PS -leave a broom so we can sweep up next time
This is the nicest condo/rental house we've ever stayed at while on vacation. The view was amazing, the condo was beautifully decorated, well equipped, and comfortable, plenty of space for a family of 4-6. The resort does fireworks once a week and the view is unmatched, as is the view for sunsets. The owners were great to work with and made the reservation process easy.
As for the resort: The resort is beautiful and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. If staying for a week as we did, I would recommend one of the resort's adventure packages. We got the Extreme Adventure package and definitely got our money's worth. We took the jet skis out morning and were playing with dolphins that would swim right up to us.
It was an amazing trip and we will definitely try to stay here again.
Loved being on the top floor!! The views are amazing. You can see the ocean and bay. The sunsets are beautiful!!! Also, when the sun sets, you still have a view of lights. I would lay in bed at night just staring at the night time view.
The condo itself is really nice. All the amenities of home and very comfortable. If we went back to Portofino, we would 100% want to stay in this unit again.
Working with Mandi was very easy. Check in, check out was a breeze (and we had friends stay in other units that check in wasn't as easy). Loved having a keyless entry to room with a code. Makes it soo much easier. We had a great vacation!!! The pools are heated when the weather isn't that great. The beach is gorgeous. The owners have beach chairs and umbrellas and sand toys. Awesome!
If you are a runner, the path along Santa Rosa National is amazing. You feel like you are running in the middle of nowhere.
We really loved our stay in this unit. There is also tons to do in the area. We went to the aviation museum, zoo and Fort Pickens. All cool places to visit.
We were looking for the perfect getaway for a short girls weekend (which was much needed) & can I say we landed so BIG when we found this beautiful penthouse condo!!!! From the time we drove in on the grounds we could tell that LUXURY was going to be right at our hands here. We drove in on a Friday & left on a Sunday & we very well could have never left & been perfectly content. The condo is beautifully decorated, the views are absolutely amazing, it is true that the views are unobscured & when looking out on the water it would appear as though we were on a cruise ship. This tower is right next door to the lifestyle center & from what we could see seemed to have the best views & easiest access to the other amenities on site. The entire staff was welcoming & friendly. We utilized all the spa amenties without having to schedule a spa treatment. The spa facility has a hot tub, sauna room, steam room, showers, changing room, & small lounging room. We were here during January so we didn't get to experience the large resort outdoor pools but we can't wait to come back & experience this area in the summer months. They did have an indoor Olympic size pool with beautiful wood beam ceilings. And also, the "state of the art" gym, is exactly how it states...top of the line equipment. But the best was in the penthouse condo!!!!
