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 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!

Best condo, this is a must stay in Pensacola

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Condo the past two years and making plans for our next trip. The resort property is very clean, plenty of fun family things to do and food options. We love each tower has a pool then the main pool area. The owners are great to work with, never any issues, accommodating and take great care of their property. It's very spacious, very clean, well stocked and new furniture which is so nice. Views are amazing. Short walk to the beach and it's never been overcrowded. There are beach chairs and some toys and wave boards, which is nice. Take a wagon it's worth it! Never had any issues with noise either. Our family will continue to make this trip and stay in this condo for years to come.

Awesome Views, Very Comfortable, Excellent Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The property was pristine, clean, and very comfortable. They provided everything you need (pots, coffee maker, blender, utensils, detergent, bathroom tissue, paper towels). We literally only had to bring our food and drinks (and shampoo/soap), so that is such a Huge plus.

The beds were very comfortable (even the pull out sleeper from the couch was comfortable).

The Views from the balcony are truly breathtaking.

Parking is a breeze as well, just be careful driving in the garage because the corners are tight and it's hard to see oncoming cars (drive slow and you'll be okay).

The outdoor pools were very comfortable as well (warm enough for me to swim in May, and I'm very cold-natured so I was pleasantly surprised).

We received an email telling us everything we needed to do to check in (and checkout) so that was very nice as well. To check in, you just pull up to the office, get your room keys and parking pass, and you're pretty much done. They do take a credit card from you for any "on-property" expenses that you may decide to buy (drinks poolside or from the restaurants) and from what I understand they use your room key to charge items (kind of like a cruise ship). Everyone was constantly smiling and greeting us as we walked around, so that was a nice surprise and you can tell that Portofino wants you to have a good stay (and to return).

We later learned that Portofino does not provide Lifeguards at the beach. It is a "Swim at your own risk" situation, so if there ever is an incident in the water, you need to be prepared. Next time we return, I will bring a flotation device to throw at someone if they are ever in need.

Everything from beginning to end for us was truly excellent and Hong Chu did such an amazing job at making sure you are comfortable and informed every step of the way! Take advantage of that blender they have! It was awesome!

Awesome views with relaxing atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

Your rental property was perfect. It was wonderful to arrive and see things exactly as pictured on the website. Very clean and comfortable unit with awesome views. The property is in a great location, just far enough away from downtown PB but not too far. We would definitely stay and recommend your rental again.

Great February getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of February at Portofino on the 20th floor of Tower I. The surrounding beaches were the whitest I have seen and a perfect place to watch the nightly sunsets. The condo is very well equipped and the owner was helpful with a few problems we encountered. The location was perfect, laid back, and a quick drive to tourist destinations. Portofino is a beautiful, well manicured resort, and probably quite busy during the tourist season. During the month of February there was not a lot of activity which was perfect for our winter getaway. The condo is in need of some minor maintenance but I would highly recommend it for your next beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Hello John and thank you for the kind words! We are in the process of slowly updating the condo so that there will be less "hiccups" so that you will be better able to enjoy the condo. Despite the "hiccups", I hope you had a great time during your stay and I hope to have you back in the near future! All the best, ~HC
