Property description

Portofino Resort consists of 28 acres located on a pristine stretch of nature-preserved land bordering both the Gulf of Mexico and the tranquil waters of the Santa Rosa Sound. Enjoy direct access to several miles of federally protected sugar white sand beaches, complete with the renowned emerald green and turquoise waters of the Gulf.

Portofino is the premier destination resort in Pensacola Beach!!!

Indulge yourself at the most desired address on all of Florida’s Emerald Coast. Portofino combines the Italian Mediterranean, complete with a European spa, with America’s most beautiful beaches.

The open floor plan features 40 feet of spectacular Gulf view, allowing breathtaking views from each and every room! Floor to ceiling glass in both gulf front bedrooms and the family room, 9 foot ceilings with crown molding, and an expansive private balcony with a grill. Elegant Tuscany columns, domed entryway, arched ceilings, granite counter tops, imported Italian floor tile, and the master bathroom Roman whirlpool tub only begin to describe Portofino’s distinct Mediterranean feel.

For the athletic minded, there are five lighted Rubico (clay) tennis courts; pilates/yoga/spin/kickboxing classes on premises; Tiger Point, a 36-hole championship golf course, is a water taxi ride away; onsite rentals for bicycles, kayaks, sail boats, boogie boards, and water bikes. Enjoy bicycle riding or hiking on Gulf Island National Seashore’s paved trails. What more can a family ask for – there’s something for everyone!

Pamper yourself at Spa Portofino, a $5 million 40,000 square foot lifestyle center, featuring customized body treatments, facials, full body massages, pedicures, available poolside or in your own resort residence. Spa Portofino also features a gourmet restaurant as well as a grill, an indoor Olympic pool with a soaring wood-beamed ceiling, state-of-the-art fitness center, two outdoor zero-infinity pools and decks overlooking the magnificent Santa Rosa Sound, whirlpool spas, saunas, steam rooms, and (seasonal) Kids' Camp.

Part of the Portofino experience is the Lifestyle center that includes state of the art exercise machines and free weights. Every treadmill, elliptical trainer and stair stepper has its own cable equipped TV and DVD player. Portofino features a gourmet restaurant as well as a poolside grill. Attendants are available to bring food and drink to you at your request!

We have a 2 BR GULF FACING unit on the 11th floor in Tower 3. Tower 3 is the closest tower to the beach, a short walk gets you right on the beautiful white sand and pristine waters of Pensacola. It is adjacent to the tennis courts, and a couple minute walk to the Spa/lifestyle center and restaurant. Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing.

Our unit faces southeast, and is the closest to the beach of the five towers. The only thing you will see looking out the 40 feet of floor to ceiling windows and and our expansive deck is the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. Eight miles of spectacular breathtaking views of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore; no buildings, no high-rises, nothing to block your view!

OUR CONDO OFFERS AN UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN FRONT VIEW OF THE GULF, OVERLOOKING SANTA ROSA SOUND AND GULF ISLANDS NATIONAL SEASHORE!

Beautifully furnished 1,335 square foot unit with a king bed in the master bedroom and queen bed in the guest bedroom. Both bedrooms have private baths and there is a half bath in the common area. The sofa in the great room opens into a full sleeper. Both bedrooms feature TV’s with DVD players, ceiling fans and direct entry to the balcony. Floor to ceiling light blocking drapes offer a great sleeping environment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife, Carol and I live in Houston, TX and we own our medical/professional business. We love to travel and visit beautiful and exotic places. The gorgeous beaches along the Florida panhandle have long been one of our favorite locations to visit. When the opportunity came along to purchase a luxury vacation home on the beach in a world class resort like Portofino, we jumped at the opportunity. We visit our vacation home several times a year and we love sharing the experience with our friends, family and guests.

Why the Owner Chose Pensacola Beach, FL, USA:
Our family has vacationed in Pensacola Beach area and Portofino many times in the past and we absolutely love the views, the pristine, white sandy beaches and the laid back lifestyle of Pensacola. Spending a week in a beautiful, luxury resort, like Portofino is such a restful and rejuvenating experience. Our plan is to someday retire to the area. In the meantime, we visit as often as we can and we would like to share our lovely condo and the experience of a relaxing Portofino vacation with other families looking for an exceptional and relaxing vacation experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The views from our condo are tremendous! It is a magical, relaxing escape from the everyday stress of life and has something for everyone, young and old alike! Watching a beautiful sunrise, dolphins jumping in the waves, or just a stroll along the beautiful white beach observing the wildlife is a unique experience we would love to share with your family
