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!

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.

Gorgeous condo with perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came down for spring break for a getaway. Upon arriving it was noticeable that the resort is beautiful with stunning views. We got checked in, arrived a hour early, and was able to get into the condo. All the accommodations inside the condo was more than we could ask for! Clean, beautiful, and the master bed was super comfy! We are sad leaving such a beautiful place, but will definitely visit again!!!!

Awesome stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great views from the rooms and balcony. Stocked with everything you need! Convenient parking spot and fast elevators. A few hiccups with service at Portofino, but that's outside the control of the owner and did not really effect our trip. The weather was a little colder than we liked too, but the facility has an indoor pool, heated pools and very warm hot tubs which made being in the water fun even in this temps. Beach was beautiful, and being at the end of the strip was nice.

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
