About the property

Enjoy luxurious high-rise living at Portofino Island Resort, a condominium resort that is located on the Gulf of Mexico and the Santa Rosa Sound. It consists of five individual towers featuring their own lobby, pool and hot tub. Each unit has professionally designed interiors, balconies featuring elegant columns with built in grills, water views from every room, and Roman whirlpool baths. These features only begin to describe Portofino’s distinct Mediterranean feel.

This professionally furnished 1,330 square foot unit was never rented by the previous owner and features a king size bed in the master bedroom, a full size bed in the guest bedroom, and a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room.

A fabulous kitchen, complete with granite countertops and fully stocked appliances allows you the feel of being at home. The dining area features an exquisite mohagany table seating for six and three bar stools at the breakfast bar for additional seating.

The kitchen, dining and living area features an open floor plan for your comfort and enjoyment. A half bath is conveniently located in the foyer.

The master bathroom has a custom glass walk-in shower, a Jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks, with a separate toilet area. Both bedrooms have their own balcony access. The unit has a washer and dryer as well as free wireless internet.

While sitting on the balcony of our tower 4 unit, enjoy the views of the sound, gulf and the Lifestyle Center. The Lifestyle Center entertains with views of two pools, a bar and occasional live entertainment, not to mention fireworks and water sports that take place on the sound.

At the Lifestyle Center, pamper yourself at the Spa Portofino that offers customized body treatments, facials, full body massages, manicures and pedicures. These services can also be enjoyed from your room or poolside. The Lifestyle Center also features a 25-meter indoor heated Olympic pool with a soaring wood–beamed ceiling overlooking the sound. It also contains a state-of-the-art Fitness Center, two outdoor zero-infinity pools, whirlpool spas, saunas and steam rooms.

At the Lifestyle Center you can enjoy fine dining in the Terracotta Restaurant and Cobalt Bar. The restaurant provides a unique dining experience, serving continental cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean and Italian influence. The lush outdoor pavilion has a full service bar and grill for your needs as you enjoy the two pools.

The Fitness Center allows you to view the sound as you work out on treadmills, elliptical trainers, and stairclimbers each of which has its own cable TV or DVD player. It has various weight machines and free weights with personal trainers, pilates classes, spin classes, yoga classes and water aerobics.

For the athletic minded, there are five lighted Rubico (clay) tennis courts. For the water sports activist, many water sports are available for both shorelines. These include on site rentals for jet skis, kayaks, sailboats, boogie boards, water bikes and even a water trampoline for the kids. There are also bike rentals and hiking on the Gulf Island National Seashore’s paved trails. What more can a family ask for. There’s something for everyone.

Rental service is also available to have your beach chairs and umbrella set-up for you when you arrive on the beach. If guests would rather shop, they can board a 65 foot Catamaran which travels to and from the Boardwalk, an exciting entertainment, shopping and dining area. Relax and revitalize your spirit at Portofino Island Resort and Spa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to take a minute just to let you know how beautiful your condo was !!! We have been staying at the Portofino for several years (most of the time twice a year) and your condo was the most beautiful condo we have stayed in ! The views were wonderful and the furnishings were top of the line. There was not one thing that we needed that your condo did not have. Thank you again for renting such a beautiful place to stay. Our family had the best vacation and will only be booking your condo in the future.

We arrived for Thanksgiving Day vacation and were not disappointed. The property is well furnished with all the amenities. Beautiful view of the Bay and Gulf from the 20th floor balcony. Very relaxing time. We will be back.

Fourth of July Week Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was fantastic. We have always traveled to Sandestin for the majority of our Fla. vacation, but this destination Pensacola was closer and just as exquisite. The accommodations as well were exquisite. Nice furnished and utmost comfort. I love the place. I am planning on going back. For the time it takes to travel to Florida this is THE destination in like compared to time it takes to get to Sandestin.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this condo. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Dishes and appliances were perfect. Everything we needed to cook was there. Washer and dryer was in great condition. My husband and two young children really enjoyed this condo. It is located in an excellent location. When you walk out onto the balcony, you see the bay to the left and you see the gorgeous beach to the right. It was a easy walk to the beach. You really get the best of both worlds. It also has the best view for the fireworks. What we really loved about this condo was the view of the main pool. If you look down from the condo you see the main pool which always has a band playing. My husband and I were able to put our kids to sleep and go on the balcony and listen to the music. It was like we were downstairs without actually having to be downstairs. We enjoyed the music in the comfort setting of the condo. But rest assure, the condo is sound proof. My 6mth old slept soundly with the band and fireworks going on. We loved our vacation when we stayed in this condo. We are going back this year and every year after.

Perfect for Our Needs

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing vacation for our family and this place hit the spot. We traveled with 2 adults and 4 kids (10, 12, 15, 15). The condo was very nice and well furnished. The resort was perfect as well. Can't complain and would certainly stay at this property again.
