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.

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!

Amazing view, wonderful place, & Hong was great with communicating with me

  • 5 of 5

The room was perfect! It has an amazing view with just the right amount of space. I was surprised at how comfortable the fold out couch-bed was. You couldn't feel the bars when you lay on it, unlike most fold out couches. Hong was the best person to rent from! He was prompt at replying to all my messages and even answered my call when I needed to speak to him before we left for our trip. The beach and pool was never crowded and was the perfect temperature. It was all beautiful to look at as well. Check in and check out were both a breeze. Did I mention how nice the room was? I will definitely be renting from Hong again next year and years to follow! He was very personable and accommodating. I will never go through Portofino directly to book because I like Hong's hospitality.

Beautiful views and an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed on many occasions at the resort and each time in different units. Our condo during this trip had the most beautiful views of both the gulf and bay side, ending each day with the most amazing sunsets. The experience staying in this condo Had amenities a step above the norm such as washing machine detergent, dryer sheets, cling wrap, aluminum foil, etc. these are items that we always need to purchase during our visit. Also in all our dealings with the condo's owner, he was very streamlined through all process from the time we made our reservation to the time we departed. I would certainly be back and will specifically look for this condos availability. Thank you for an amazing stay!

Perfect Property for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year of staying at the Portofino resort and staying at this property. The resort is perfect for a family vacation on the beach. The resort is always clean, plenty of fun activities for the kids and adults, friendly staff and great food options. The condo makes the vacation perfect. We did a lot of research of condo’s at the resort and couldn’t find anything as nice as this condo. First, the condo is clean and well kept which is important to our family. The décor is a great balance of tasteful beach attire. The beds are amazing, including the pull out couch. We sleep as good as we do at home. The furniture is pretty new so the condition is great, very clean. Kitchen has everything we need for a week stay. The view is breathtaking, the pictures don't do it justice. To be on the 20th floor and be able to view the gulf and the bay with the skyline is amazing. This is the nicest condo we’ve stayed at on vacation and come back year after year and we are never disappointed. It’s like home away from home. The unit could use a new dryer, it works just not great. Overall, the owners take great care of the condo and it shows. We are looking forward to coming back next year. If you get a chance book this property you will not regret it.

Owner's Response: Hi Tiffany! It is always so wonderful to hear your comments and I am so pleased that you visit our condo year after year. That is one of the biggest compliments you can give. We are always trying to freshen our condo up in some way or another every year. Thanks for the mentioning your problem with the dryer. I will get try to get that problem sorted out ASAP. Thanks for coming again this year and we hope to have you back for plenty more times to come. :-) Update 7/16: We have identified the problem with the dryer. It turns out that the heating element has failed so we purchased a new dryer for the condo so next year you will be able to enjoy a brand new dryer. Cheers, HC
