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.

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!

About 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.

Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owner chose Florida Main North West

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.

What makes this condo unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the best family vacation that we have ever had! The property and geographic location were perfect. We felt so at home in the condo. We ate out a few times, but we love to cook and the kitchen was awesome! You have to go to Joe Patti's Seafood Market and get a bunch of seafood and have a great seafood dinner one night in the condo! Also, the TV's were top quality and allowed us to watch some good movies and sports! The view from the balcony was outstanding! Especially one night when there was a full moon. We could not have been more comfortable w/ this condo. We were so impressed w/ the Portofino property. They really understood customer service! There were so many activities to choose from that we coudl not even do all of them. The pools were very clean and nice. The beaches were so wonderful ! There are several good restaurants close by, but we so enjoyed the property that we did not want to leave very often. We had such a great time that we booked a week for this summer prior to leaving. I would recommend this property w/ confidence to anyone. Our family had a smile on our face the entire week.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Came here for a three day getaway with husband. The unit is exceptionally clean, tastefully and beautifully decorated, and the views are amazing! Will definitely be returning. Another great perk of this unit is there is an ample supply of beach chairs ,umbrellas, sand pails, everything you need for the beach, even beach towels! Also, for non-beach days there are great games ,movies and books available. By far one of the best units we have ever stayed in in Pensacola

Amazing condo with beautiful views!! Spotless!

  • 5 of 5

Check-in was quick and easy even though we arrived nearly 4 hours before the designated check-in time. The condo was remarkably clean and charmingly decorated. The furnishings were immaculate and appeared to be new. There are beautiful views of the beach and sunrise from the balcony, both bedrooms and the living room. We had very easy access to the beach and tower pool, both of which were never overcrowded. The reserved parking spot is also a great perk. Our family had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!

It was a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

* The property was very well maintained and exceptionally clean.

* The owners were very accessible for any questions or concerns that we had.

* They provided a nice list of their favorite restaurants and we are going to add some of our own. The Grand Marlin is probably our favorite. * We always head directly to Sidelines Sports Bar for the Grouper Sandwich or meal. The Casino Beach Grille is fun and also Peg Leg Pete's. * We went to a local restaurant in Pensacola called Captain Joey Patti's Seafood Restaurant. Lunchtime favorite of the locals.

We have been coming to Pensacola Beach for over 20 years and this is the first time we have rented through VRBO and would recommend the property to our friends and family. The owners were very thoughtful in making this a great vacation. Thanks to the owners!

Hope to have you back for a return visit soon!

PERFECT!!! The condo was absolutely perfect, very clean, convenient and updated!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Pensacola and Portofino. The condo was perfect, plenty of room, very nicely decorated with many updates. The room has a bay and gulf view, great sunrise views! The grill on the patio is very convenient, balcony is large and has several tables and chairs. The owners have a stocked closet of beach accessories including several nice beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys. The resort is also very nice, our tower pool was very clean and lots of chairs/tables to relax poolside. The unit comes with a very nice covered/convenient parking space. There are 2 other pools on the property/bayside. They are very nice and have plenty of seating. All resort staff are very friendly, attentive and polite. The resort has many activities including paddle boarding, jetski and kayak. The beach is sugar white sand, clean, beautiful water! Fyi: the resort doesn't accept cash, you either have to charge to your room on debit/credit or put money on a gift card purchased at the front desk to use throughout the resort. This was not a big deal to us, just a fyi.

Overall we give the condo a 10/10 rating!! We will for sure be back!!

Another memorable family trip at Portofino

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to rent from the Lisks, the first in their Tower III condo, and both times they have been so accommodating and prompt in their responses. We love the easy access to the beach, pools, and running path with water views on both sides. The condo was beautiful and comfortable as was the unit in Tower V. It's so nice to have the beach chairs, cooler, and sand toys for our use since we fly in and would have to purchase or rent these otherwise. We hope to make this our annual spring break tradition.
