About the property

Be prepared to experience awesome views. Great condominium on 20th floor facing the pristine stretch of beach on the Gulf of Mexico. This is heaven on earth. Watch the sunset each evening as you relax... you will not be disappointed. We have WiFi and flat screen TVs in the living and master bedrooms. All of our TVs have both been updated to include Smart TV functionality with features like Netflix, Spotify, etc. We also provide beach chairs, umbrellas and towels for you use while you stay.

Perks of staying at Portofino:

* Gated community

* Upscale amenities

* On-site spa services

* Large indoor and outdoor pool

* Shuttle to Pensacola restaurants/shops

* Terra Cotta restaurant

* All linens provided

* Fully-stocked kitchen

The main perk of staying in our unit:

About Hong Chu

My family and I first visited the Emerald Coast in the '90s, and we fell in love. We are a family of avid travelers, as you can tell from my profile photo. In that particular photo, I was at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France with my two kids from many years ago. When we are not at the beach condo, we are off exploring other parts of the world. Through all the places I have been to, I have never seen anything as beautiful as this stretch of beach on the Emerald Coast. I grew up and went to school in the one of the fastest growing cities in the world - Shanghai, China, where I originally worked as an electrical engineer. My husband was born and grew up in the now vibrant city of Tainan, Taiwan.

Hong Chu purchased this condo in 2005

Why Hong Chu chose Pensacola Beach

We bought this property because of the amazing scenery located right outside the window. We've seen many other beaches around the world, and believe it or not, the beaches on the Florida panhandle are hard to beat. Can you find sugar white sands at Santa Monica Beach in Los Angeles? Waking up during the morning and seeing that sun start shining its abundant light onto the gleaming sand is not something everyone in the world is able to see. Plus, Portofino offers such great amenities. How many resorts do you know that has seven swimming pools in one resort? After a long day on the beach, you can return to your room with just the soft sound of waves crashing against the shore. My absolute favorite part of Portofino Island is the seclusion. It is located a little farther in on the island, which means you get peace and quiet while still being close to the commercial strip.

What makes this condo unique

The resort is top rated with all the amenities of great resorts. There is so much to do on this resort. Tennis, beach, pool, spa, workout area - just to name a few. You choose how much you enjoy or just relax with a good book.
