We are just back from 10 days at the Villa Portofino and we would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone, without reservation. This was our first experience with a rental home and it has set the bar very high for future travels. I spent hours researching homes across Florida and this experience was positive in every regard. We definitely are going back to this home.
The home is simply beautiful and the outdoor space is absolutely incredible. You open a bank of patio doors to a great outdoor space that includes a dining table, outdoor kitchen, spa, and pool. Beyond that is the dock and canal. We had plans to eat out the odd night and chose not to. We preferred to cook a great meal on the outdoor grill and sit and enjoy the view into the late evening.
The pictures you are see are what you get. The home is extremely comfortable and everything you could imagine is there, be it bikes and helmets, fishing equip, spices for cooking, every cooking utensil you would ever need, comfortable beds, sofas, chairs, games galore, every TV channel and service imaginable including Netflicks. The internet is fast and never did we get disconnected. A full pc is on site, including a printer which we used for our boarding passes.
Our thanks to Nadja and her husband Fred, who answered all our emails promptly and who we met personally at the home. They both came over to ensure all our needs were taken care of. Two very nice people who genuinely want your vacation experience to be positive.
