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.

Why Hong Chu chose Florida Main North West

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.

Lovely, spacious condo with a double bonus - view of the gulf and the bay. Both bedrooms have a view, the kitchen is big and well equipped. Tasteful and fun decor throughout. We will come back again!

Love Portofino and the views from the balcony

  • 4 of 5

We love Portofino and the views from the balcony. The owners have been very responsive and helpful from the booking process on. Overall, property is in good condition with need of some refreshing and deep cleaning (dusting, painting). You get great views on 20th floor of gulf and bay but sunset is somewhat obstructed by Tower 5. We always find it hard to leave Portofino.

Owner's Response: Hi Amy! Thank you for your kind words! We value your comments and we are in the process of doing some freshening up of our unit in the winter months, including repainting, some deep cleaning, and replacing of some of the outdated furnishings. If you return during the next season, you will see a beach condo with a new type of energy. :-) Best, HC

Fantastic resort and great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the 20th floor of one of Portofino's 5 towers. The condo was well provisioned and spotless. The staff and amenities were awesome and the location at the east end of town allowed easy access to the busier business district but also allowed us a somewhat more exclusive beach experience. We highly recommend this great beach vacation spot.

Beautiful views, well maintained condo, great service from owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in June with two adults and three teenagers. We loved that Portofino is a nice size, but isn't a huge resort that takes 20 minutes to cross. The resort is on a very narrow strip of the island, so you're very close to both the Gulf side and the bay. The condo has a great view of the Gulf and a nice view of the bay. We watched some amazing sunsets from the balcony.

The condo is very well maintained and furnished (and decorated) perfectly for a beach get away. Our group of 5 was very comfortable and never seemed to be tripping over each other. There were televisions in every room and good internet for relaxing after a day at the beach and a nice dinner out (or in). The owners provided a very thorough information sheet to us a few weeks before we headed down, which was a really nice touch. For example, we didn't realize there was a trolley that ran all day to all the restaurants and shopping areas on the beach, which was great news for the teenagers. We received our security deposit back very quickly.

We will definitely be back to Portofino, and we'll be sure to book far enough in advance to get this condo again.

Great resort. Amazing property. Perfect family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I’ll be honest and descriptive as possible, as vacations are often made special based on the accommodations. The process of VRBO reservations were easy, convenient and had zero issues. The owners were great to work with, very responsive, and assisted us with scheduling. The pictures of the condo are as accurate as I’ve seen in years of reviewing properties for vacation. When we arrived (very easy check in process) the condo was very clean (which is important), nice furnishings and carpet is nice. It's fully stocked from kitchen to bathrooms. Nice décor throughout, not the typical cheesy beach stuff. We loved the 2 ½ bathrooms, never any issues with a family. The beds and bedding was very nice and comfortable. The pull out was really comfortable compared to others we have stayed at so that was nice. The master is large and plenty of closet space and an amazing bathroom. The view exceeded expectations. You could watch the sun rise in the ocean, see the clarity of the water and see the sun set in the bay. The patio area is massive and plenty of room for everyone to relax on good furniture. Elevators are pretty fast for 21 floors. The condo was everything we had hoped for, no let downs. The resort is secluded from the main area so it wasn’t overcrowded - great for our family, short drive into town. Beaches are amazing, clean and beautiful. It’s a short walk to the beach, bay area, pools and restaurants on property, couple of minutes and pathways for all. Each tower has a pool then the main pool, so plenty of options. Food on property was good, everyone was professional and kind. Lots of activities in the evening for kids and family. We don’t normally repeat vacation spots; however, we would definitely reserve this condo for future vacations in FL and would highly recommend to friends going to FL.
