About the property

2 bedroom, 2.5 bath sleeps 6

Portofino is situated along eight miles of untouched white sand beaches within the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Portofino is nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Sound. The Five Towers were designed with the look and feel of the Italian Mediterranean.

Our condo is located in tower 4 on the 11th floor. A king size bed in the master bedroom, Queen size bed in the second bedroom and a Queen size pull out couch in the living room comfortably sleeps six. The condo is newly furnished and offers several amenities. Our tower offers stunning panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico, Santa Rosa Bay and the Cobalt Bar.

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. Enjoy the state-of-the-art Fitness Center, two outdoor zero-infinity pools, whirlpool spas, saunas and steam rooms. 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.

In addition, the Lifestyle Center offers 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.

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 you spirit at Portofino Island Resort and Spa. Paradise awaits you.

Exceptionally clean and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just arrived home after a 6 day stay in the unit. It's obvious the owner maintains the unit as his own living space. All furnishings were clean, comfortable and of great quality. The kitchen is well stocked with necessities for cooking; however, we loved the on-site dining. The Portofino is a family friendly, full service beach resort we have enjoyed for several years and this unit is a great one to stay in!

Wonderful condo and resort is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo along with the entire property! However call and double check with the Portofino of events as we spent majority of our week with 2000 plus high schooler from Houston at their church camp called Beach Retreat. Had I known that I would be spending over half of my vacation with that many kids I would have went elsewhere or changed my dates. Once they left the resort was back to normal and it was truly a great experience. All the staff is very friendly and property is immaculate. Views are stunning and our favorite thing was just sitting on the balcony.

The condo is beautifully decorated and comes fully equipped with anything you could possibly need.

All in all I would be back in heartbeat just not on the week of beach retreat church camp! The kids were very respectful and polite. However I came to relax and get away not be surrounded by teenagers.

Beautiful condo with the best view

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. The beach decor was a favorite. The balcony with the awesome view was just amazing. The condo was perfect. We loved the whole complex with the pools, restaurants, and activities. We loved everything about our stay there except the weather was chilly! We would stay here again and recommend this condo to others.
