About the property

2 Bedroom 2.5 Bath Located In Portofino Village Stunning Sound And Gulf Views

5 stars consistently ! We nicknamed this unit 'Morning Star' because of its eastern facing magnificent sunrises. This is truly a awesome view and a well kept ,clean , up to date unit. Look at the 5 star reviews ! Wow !!!!

Unlike many VRBO listings which are frustrating I update my calendars close to daily. My calendars are always current and up to date. What is booked is booked ,what is open is open. This condo has really good rates considering its at the resort Portofino . You are not booking through a big vacation company you are booking through a local that lives here works direct for the owner. I can give better rates because the owner doesn't have to pay for the big overhead of a big company. Feel free to look at bottom line prices on other 2 bedroom condos and you will see ! As for response timeI will get back to you quickly ! If I am busy I will call ,text or email you within a 6 hour time period usually much sooner look at my response time . Looking for a great condo at.a great rate ? Look no further ! Go to 'quick quote' to check availability and see your all inclusive price that includes cleaning,and tax and amenity-resort fee. The resort fee is $80 for the first day then depending on the season $20 per day of your stay. These are mandatory fees imposed by Portofino to use their pools, lifestyle center, jacuzzis ,etc. I can't figure out how to configure the quick quote beyond 3 days with the correct amenity fee so anything over 3 days add on $20 per day for that .

There are no booking fees, we don't require you to buy renters insurance and there is no deposit. We have a very lenient three-week cancellation policy most places are 90 days beforehand and you are required to buy renters insurance .Most places don't care what happens in your life, you're not getting your money back -we realize in life that things happen, our 3 week cancelation policy is extremely fair compared to many places as you will see when you compare to 99% of any other similar place at Portofino. This is a fairly new to the rental market as of May 2015 to the prestigious Portofino Village and has had nothing but awesome 5 star reviews rolling in with many renters coming back ! This has a owner that cares ! Brand new furniture in the living room as of January 2016. This two Bedroom Condo has panoramic views with floor to ceiling windows, private balconies and is fully equipped. Each tower has a heated pool and spa with easy access to the beach. Only a short stroll from your condo to your choice of pools or the Gulf of Mexico. It's 1333 sq feet has room for six to sleep comfortably.this has a this has a king size bed ,a queen size bed and then a pull ou sleeper couch. Located on the 20th floor out of 21 floors so if you are afraid of heights this is not for you ! However talk about a amazing view this is it.

This condo in Tower 2 has Gulf Front Views of the Gulf of Mexico. Tower 2 is centrally located to be adjacent to the Lifestyle Center which features the restaurant, pool decks, Spa, Fitness Center and Adventure Cove Beach. Compare with any other bottom line price and you will see this is a great deal !

This unit features bedding of King, Queen and Sleeper Sofa. Sleeps up to six people ,six people is Max occupancy.

Pensacola Beach condo luxury accommodation with multiple pools,spa ,and fitness life style center .All you have to do is look at the up-to-date calendar see if your dates are available and then press 'quick quote ' it will give you a total which includes everything including the tax and cleaning and amenity fees up to 3 days . If it's over 3 days just add on a extra $20 per day for the amity fees that Portofino charges to use their many multiple facilities. No other hidden fees once you get a quick quote that includes everything. No dogs allowed ,no smoking except for outside on the balcony ,you must be 25 years old to rent. This is a very nice well-kept condo that is sure to please . If you have any questions all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask 850-543-7800 if I'm busy I will text you or call you back as soon as I can.

About Mary Bedard -reservations

I live here in Gulf Breeze I am the reservationist for this beautiful condo,actually I do it all for this condo so I personally make it nice ! I have more than one rental but this is one of the nicest . Hard to beat the views on this one ! Feel free to email ,text or call me I have lived here for over 30 years and I am a great source of local information. I'll tell you the good places to go and eat where to pick up fresh seafood ,the local haunts and dives to fine dining and tell you the must see things that you shouldn't miss why you're here !

Why Mary Bedard -reservations chose Florida Main North West

Why not ! Look at the view . Eastern sunrise is spectacular. Can't beat that !! I have included in to this price all applicable fees. I don't charge a ' reservation fee' to get your credit card number or a deposit or make you buy renters insurance . And believe me look around most places do ! Portofino Island Resort is a lovely choice for families looking to make their home away from home in a roomy, luxury condo. Not only are rooms larger than normal condo units, but you will enjoy all the amenities of home…washer/dryers, gourmet kitchens, lots of closet space and beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico or the Santa Rosa Sound. Each tower has its own pool and whirlpool so no overcrowding issues! The resort is Mediterranean style with gorgeous architecture and tons of added amenities such as the spa, fitness center and on-site tennis courts.

What makes this condo unique

You'll be hard pressed to find an amenity that Portofino rental condos lacks. There are lighted rubico tennis courts, all manner of water sports for exploring both shorelines, bicycle rentals, and scenic nature trails which wind their way out to breathtaking beaches. A private tram will shuttle guests around property (seasonal), and arrangements can be made for charter boat fishing, a dolphin cruise or whatever your heart desires.

The 40,000 square foot Lifestyle Center at Portofino will indulge you beyond your wildest dreams. Work out in the state-of-the-art fitness club overlooking the bay, take a fitness class, visit the juice bar, order up a massage, and unwind in the lovely atrium hot tub. When you're through, head for the indoor lap pool, or the outdoor paradise of tropical pools by the bay.

Afterwards, there's no better place to end your day than at Portofino's intimate wine bar and candlelit Terra Cotta restaurant. Or take your order to go and dine on your own private terrace with sunset views. There's no need to travel to the Italian Mediterranean. Come to a place where luxury is yours and nature still dominates the landscape, right here on Florida's Emerald Coast... Portofino.

I can't say enough about this condo and the Manager! I consider myself to be a tough client and expect the best, usually I spend the first couple hours of vacation cleaning the condo to my satisfaction. Didn't happen with this unit! And the view, it speaks for itself! We have decided, moving forward, this is the Unit us.

See you next year Morning Star!

Wonderful Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I came down for three nights, two days. We absolutely loved it here! I've never stayed in a condo as well stocked as this! LOADS of coffee, creamer and sugar, chocolates by the bed, tons of water in the fridge, and toiletries in case you forgot something! Y'all, she even had fresh flowers on the dining table! How sweet! The resort was also AMAZING! The staff was friendly and helpful, bar was awesome, and beach side service was great! I would recommend this place 100 times over! We will definitely be back next summer, hopefully for a whole week :)

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect. The view is outstanding. Mary and Jeff are so accommodating and easy to work with. The condo is stocked with all the things you need from beach chairs to ziploc bags! And so much more economical than renting directly from the resort! We can't wait to come back!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $135 + Tax
Portofino amenity Fee $120 + Tax
Tax Rate 11.5%

$300 to hold reservation. The remaining balance is due 3 weeks prior to arrival. The amenity fees to use the pool and lifestyle center is $75 plus tax,then the resort charges a $20 per day fee in the summer ,$15 in the fall and $10 in the winter. I do try to keep rates as low as possible but those are just the fees required for all renters checking in .All you have to do is check the always up-to-date calendar and the press 'quick quote ' to get your total quote,the only thing that is adjustable is the amenity fees as they are what they are and I haven't been able to figure out how to add that in correctly for beyond a 3 day stay. But it is as I stated explained above. Call for questions or to book at
850-543-7800. Rates are subject to change until booked. Please don't ask me to hold a reservation with out a credit card.We have a very generous cancellation policy there is no penalty if you cancel two weeks prior to arrival. If I am busy or at another job leave me a message,or text and as soon as I'm available I will call you. Mary
