PORTOFINO 2BR/2BA GULF FRONT INTERNET AVAILABLE 13-16 MAY

Pensacola Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-7)

Portofino is the ultimate luxury destination on the entire Gulf coast. Our Condo is in tower V which has just been finished (May 2006) and is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your time at the beach. When staying at Portofino, you need to understand which views you will get.

There are only 36 2 bedroom units at Portofino which are on the Gulf and have Uninterupted views of the beach to the west and the sunset. This unit is one of them. When renting a Portofino, make sure you know where your unit is because the views differ greatly. Portofino has many amenities which are yours to enjoy while you are here.

You will use the fully equipped gym which just may be the nicest in the world, and overlooks the outdoor infinity pools and Santa Rosa Sound. Classes available at extra charge.

Enjoy playing on five Rubico and lighted tennis courts. Lessons available at extra charge.

Swim in any of the 8 on-site heated pools and hot tubs.

Relax in the Portofino Spa with wet and dry sauna (treatments extra) with massage therapy, body treatments, and facials.

Portofino is located on the Gulf of Mexico on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach, Florida. It is an easy 25 minute drive from Pensacola International Airport (PNS) and 15 minutes from downtown Pensacola.

Our condominium is located in Tower Five , on the sixth floor. It has been professionally decorated and features nine-foot ceilings throughout. The entrance has eight-foot-wide double doors opening onto oversized ceramic tile flooring throughout the living area, kitchen, and baths. There are high speed internet connections at various locations in the unit. Bring your laptop.

As you stand in the kitchen or living area you can see the clear blue Gulf of Mexico. The 28 foot balcony off the living area and both bedrooms allows for spectacular views, including a direct view of the pure white sand beach, the sunset and the intercoastal waterway.

The master bedroom has a true King size bed and the 2nd bedroom has two full-size beds. Sure it is a little cramped but it beats the heck out of sleeping on the typical sofa bed.

Full-size washer and dryer are in the Condo for use.

There is an outdoor electric grill for your use.

There are 4 beach chairs which you are welcome to take to the beach.

We live in the area and frequently use the unit for our own use so it is equipped with everything you need. Just bring your suntan lotion, beach towels and food.

All counter tops are granite and the ceiling is smooth with luxurious furnishings reminiscent of the finest five star hotels.

Twenty-nine movies are available for viewing in the unit with a nice tasteful selection for both adults and children. TV's are in each bedroom and a 35' TV is in the livingroom.

Unfortunately, boats and motorcycles are not allowed on the property. You will have to store them off-sit ut does not include beach chairs or the Portofino boat or taxes. Beach chairs are available in the unit and you are welcome to take them to the beach.

This is a no smoking unit.

There is a normally a 3 night minimum during the off seasons but a 6 night minimum during the summer months (Jun-Aug).

Add $155 to the nightly price for cleaning and checkin fees required by the onsite condo management company.

When you arrive here you will know you have found Paradise and when you leave you will be planning your next trip.

BEAUTIFUL PENSACOLA BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This year our trip to Pensacola was to attend the graduation of Pensacola Cristian College. Mike's condo was very beautiful and comfortable for all of us. We had a beautiful view of the ocean, the sound and even the pool from our balcony. We would definitely stay here again.

IF YOU DO YOUR HOMEWORK, THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Being in the service industry in a tourism based town, I do extensive homework before I book a destination. I looked at a dozen or more properties in the Portofino Towers before I settled on Michael's lovely accommodations. My wife and I wanted a property where we could walk along the beach. Portofino Towers is adjacent to 5-6 miles of undeveloped beach front that will remain that way because it is State or City owned. Tower 5 is the newest of the five towers. Michael's condo faces to the west so we were able to enjoy the sunsets. It is positioned so another tower is not in its view. Michael's accommodations are first class and appear to have been designed by a professional or someone with excellent taste. You will find everything you want at this property. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review. We try our best to remember this is your vacation and we want to do everything possible to make it convenient and memorable for you. Looks like we succeeded again. There are actually about 7 miles of National "Seashore to the east of the property. Come again and enjoy it all. sunsets are fantastic in the fall.

PORTOFINO - THE PLACE TO BE.

  • 4 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our stay at your condo. The condo was very roomy and comfortable. We brought our own meals that I had prepared in advance, but next time will enjoy the restaurant by the pool alot more. Of course, we made a run to the grocery store & spent way too much but will learn from our mistakes.
The wireless internet was a big help for us not using our data. Was very easy to connect to.
Will bring DVD's next time for us to watch and the sun coming in from the living room was very bright, we couldn't see the TV at certain angles during the daytime.
We also went to mass on Sunday - the church was right down the road. We actually saw it driving in and noticed what time the mass was (9:45 am).
You made check-in a breeze.
Thanks for letting us rent your condo.

Owner's Response: So glad you came. Dont you know you are supposed to be at the beach in the day time. Just kidding. Sorry about the glare on the TV. Pulling out the panel on the cabinet should fix that. Come again and enjoy another great week at Portofino.

BEST PLACE ON PENSACOLA BEACH

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely marrrrvoleous!! You get two water views for the price of one. Gulf on the left and Bay on the right. It is indeed a resort. Liked the security aspect to be sure. Restauraunt had good food...at resort prices. Still, a good value if you don't fell like cooking or driving. Local restauraunts were a big hit especially Flounders and The Grand Marlin. If you golf, Tiger Point is about all you want. NAS and Marcus Pointe are a must. On Pensacola, the Fish House is exceptional. Other fine eateries as well.

Mike has wireless internet which ports up instantly. No problem with iphone, ipad or .....Apple TV. TV has basic cable. Apple TV is simple and offers some fine internet fair, including Net Flix. It's worth the hundred bucks and you can throw from any apple device.

Everything is convenient. Trash chute is just outside of door. We typically overbuy for these stays and like others who VRBO, we try to leave more then we found - T.P., paper towels, etc.

We are starting to enter the Snowbird years and this was a nice maiden voyage for a two weeker in the worst part of winter. Will shoot for four weeks next year. Ostensibly, we are residents of central Florida and chased business ops up north some 15 years ago. Come back many times through out the year but have always liked P.B. (and we have relatives here.)

Highly recommend it for views, price, convenience and comfort. Only area of improvement would be to put up blinds in living room area. Evening sun is a killer. See you next year, Mike.

Thx, Don

GREATLY EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We decided to add a leg of our annual pilgrimage to New Orleans from the west coast to stay somewhere nice on the gulf coast. After a great deal of research, we settled on this place.

We walked in the front door and were immediately elated. It's really quite beautiful: the view is fantastic (you can see the gulf right when you walk in and can see the "bay" from the porch), the interior decoration is very well thought out (it really takes advantage of the light; it's also neither overly sparse nor cluttered) and uses nice materials. The details are really, really nice. In addition, the appliances are nicer than what you normally find in a vacation rental: the dryer actually dries the clothes well rather than leaving them "close enough".

One detail which I didn't fully appreciate until I stayed in a different location is that this is a really, really easy place to stay with children. Our daughter was at the crawling stage when we stayed here and there wasn't a lot we needed to do to prevent her from being "inquisitively destructive"; there aren't a bunch of loose cords or fragile items on the floor or anything like that and the second bedroom allowed us to have normal conversation in the rest of the unit but still hear her waking up and fussing if we listened for it.

Also to note: Mike was very responsive to all of our questions, both before and during our stay.

Portofino Towers itself is a little removed from the more populous chunk of Pensacola Beach; it was a few minutes extra drive, but in return we got relatively unpopulated beaches (especially during the week) and peaceful nights.

The only negatives:
* We couldn't find any dishtowels
* The internet connection was wired-only (it was quite fast with multiple jacks, which is great for laptops but not for smartphones/tablets)

Overall, though, fantastic. We'd stay here again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review. I will add a wireless connection in the next couple of weeks. Dishtowels are available but were in the drawer and will now be countertop. Come again in the fall when the weather is fabulous, water warm, crowds noexistant and prices less.

HIGHLIGHT OF OUR STAY IN PENSACOLA

  • 5 of 5
We are not so much beach people, so having a comfortable apartment with lovely furnishings, beautiful views, a fully equipped kitchen (nothing skimped on there), and a washer-dryer made it a real vacation for us. (The linens, especially, will make you feel like you're living in the lap of luxury - i'm a sucker for those things.) The kids loved the pool, and the beaches of course are beautiful. Mr. Moran was responsive and helpful.

If you go to this area though, watch your speed - says the family who got stopped for going 31 in a school zone in which the "slow down lights" were supposedly activated making the speed limit 20 - but actually weren't flashing at all. Saw other people pulled over presumably for the same infraction. But, the cops know us tourist suckers won't go to court a month later, so there goes $300. Our donation toward the tarball cleanup effort, I suppose.
