2 Bedroom Gulf Front- You can Hear the Waves!
To get the full experience of the Gulf of Mexico bring your binoculars because the eleventh floor is the perfect height for viewing the Gulf of Mexico and the inter costal passage where you can view all of the boat traffic from one balcony. You will also be at the right height to hear all of the different sounds that the Gulf of Mexico offer. At night time you will want to crack open the sliding glass door to hear the Gulf and it soothing sounds as you sleep away. You and your loved ones will want to explore the sand, surf and sky as you hike, bike or kayak along the shoreline. Dine on Pensacola’s freshest seafood, succulent steaks and other fine cuisine at Portofino’s restaurants. Awaken your senses with pampering spa treatments. From the moment you arrive, Portofino’s highly-trained staff will spoil you in one of nature’s last unspoiled playgrounds tremendous

About Don Wilson
I'm from Northwestern Illinois, where I grew up with one sister & still live to this day. I'm semi-retired from Procter & Gamble. I've also helped my son in a family business for 11 years.
Don Wilson purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Don Wilson chose Pensacola Beach
I purchased the condo to have another place to call home where I could hear the sound of the water. I own sailboats and needed a luxurious spot with all the amenities a resort offers. I definitely found everything I needed with Portofino Island Resort.
What makes this Condo unique
When I first saw the Towers at night going by in my sailboat, I knew I had to see what it was about. About four years later, I was a proud owner of a 2 bedroom condo.

The place was great. Mr. Wilson was very nice and easy to deal with. I look forward to dealing with him again next summer...
Great vacation place
Amenities are great
Very helpful owner
The Condo was great and Don was very responsive to all needed issues.
The property is exclusive and there are no other outside residents and renters to deal with.
Great Stay..wished we had had a month instead of a week !
Great Condo & Wonderful Property Manager
The property was excellent and in a beautiful location. The owner (Don) was great to work with and easily accessible before and during the rental period and even checked on us afterwards to make sure we enjoyed the stay. I would definitely stay at this property again and recommend it to all others.
Love the Portofino! Love this unit!
Great experience at the Portofino yet again ! Don has a beautifully appointed unit with breathtaking views of the Gulf. Don was very helpful and reachable throughout the entire process. I would definitely stay in this unit again.
Beautiful condo, unbeatable views and easy to work with owner!
Don was wonderful to work with, checking on us at the beginning and end of our week to see how things were going and if we had any concerns. The condo is spacious and open with very tall ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. All linens are provided and Don went further than most condo owners by providing hand soap, extra toilet paper, dish soap, dishwasher tabs and even laundry detergent.
We had stayed at Portofino before and already knew we loved the resort and its amenities. The resort offers multiple heated pools, including 1 large indoor pool so our children always had places to swim. Portofino offers a fabulous gym that my husband and I made use of frequently. There are sidewalks and paved walkways for jogging, biking or walking. We used the tennis courts as well. Portofino, though it's a large resort, feels somewhat private because it is distanced from the other large resorts in the area and is bordered by a nature preserve.
**Tips for families traveling with children: It is beachfront, though you do have to cross a road to access the beach so I would suggest a cart/wagon to make hauling items to the sand a little easier. The main pool does not allow any outside beverages or food, nor does it allow for any balls, etc. to be thrown in the pool. We were told theses were HOA policies. This is not the case, however, of the individual tower pools. You may bring your own items to these pools and they are large with hot tubs and often much less crowded. Since my children are always hungry and it simply isn't practical to always buy from Portofino's restaurant at the main pool, we chose mostly to swim in the Tower pools.
We spent a few hours one day going to watch the Blue Angels practice. The kids loved the planes. We tried out a seafood market that was recommended to us, Joe Patti's. That night we had crab legs, hushpuppies and Mahi Mahi & lobster tail that we grilled on the grill provided on our private balcony.
Our family loves Pensacola and we had a fabulous spring break vacation at portofino, particularly in Don's condo. Thank you, Don.
We would absolutely stay here again!
