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.

Nice & clean unit with excellent view of the pool.

  • 5 of 5

It was my wife's 40th bday and the condo lived up to expectations. Highly recommend Portofino and this owner in particular. Room has great view of main pool area Andes very well furnished. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We will definitely book our next stay with the Hay's family. So many things to do there for all ages and it's free to ride the trolley to the main beach just a short drive away.

Georgeous condo for our family of four!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing condo! I especially liked the location. Tower 4 is right next to the activity center. From the balcony we had the best view of fireworks and entertainment if we chose not to go to the pool. Ray was awesome to work with and would definately return!

Everything I was expecting and more!

  • 5 of 5

From the photos I looked at prior to reserving my stay, I was expecting luxury. I was NOT disappointed upon my arrival. The condo was clean and ready upon my arrival. Ray was very accommodating on allowing us access prior to 3:00 pm as we had a toddler that needed a nap! The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful! I plan on returning again.

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!
