Great accommodations & location

  • 4 of 5

We had three adults and one child and the space was just right. The condo is pretty big compared to other 2 bedrooms we’ve rented. The kitchen accommodated all our cooking needs, we had several meals there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I highly recommend this unit to other people.

We Love Portofino!!! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fabulous!!! We love Portofino. Tommy’s property is beautiful and so accommodating. This is the second time we have rented from him. The whole resort is gorgeous and the staff is so friendly. We will definitely be back! Going anywhere else would be just drab! Love all the activities and things for the kids to do here.

Clean, comfortable and complete

  • 5 of 5

Everything we were looking for! A very comfortable vacation home, pretty much had everything we needed. Gorgeous views to wake up to. Fun to watch all the tennis matches from the balcony. Great resort for our teenagers too, they had a good time. It was busy during spring break, but everything was available, no waits, not too crowded anywhere.

Just bring your own beach towels.

Property was great. We really liked it! We would definitely come back!

  • 4 of 5

The only complaints we have are that the resort does not take cash anywhere. The other thing is we would have liked to have extra blankets for the beds/sleeper sofa.

Superb time

  • 5 of 5

We loved the unobstructed view of the intercostal and Range point with the estuary. The condo was easily accessible to the beach , more so than the other towers. The condo was well equipped with necessary kitchen items and nicely decorated . Being previous owners at Portofino and having stayed at all 5 towers. We find this our favorite unit!

We had one small issue which was handled immediately after contacting the owner.
