Overview

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.

buyer beware of headline price

  • 1 of 5
where to begin price quoted for dates given went up. beware of "headline price"
greeted by a broken glass under couch (visible upon entrance) had to sweep then vacuum upon arriving. there was also half eaten food left in fridge.
the draw for us was the 2 full beds in guest room- no headboards though so wall behind beds are filthy (yuck) allof this was blamed on "the cleaner"
the furnishings are nice enough ( having 2 couches was nice) but the place is in need of a deep cleaning. carpets need cleaning at minimum. the place was extremely dusty. master bedroom door had a thick pink substance that you could see had dried on (looked like someone was sick) that had to be cleaned. the kitchen had alot of pots and pans and silverware, however 1 baking tray. no cutting board. no cereal bowls. no baking dishes at all. no utensils to serve with.
grill was filthy. had to clean for 30 minutes to be able to put food on. disposal backs up into sink when running dishwasher. master bath sink fills with water and won't drain. pillows but no pillow cases. washing machine is soooo loud you can't have a conversation in living room while its running. we have stayed many many times at portofino. never had an experience like this. there are instructions EVERYWHERE when you get in the place telling you all kinds of things including to strip your owns beds and wash the sheets and towels before checking out!!!!
never been asked this before.
a trip to the dollar store, some paint and a real cleaning person (professional) would go along way here

Pensacola Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first stay at Portofino. We were on the 6th floor in Tower 5 and it was perfect. The ocean view was beautiful from every room in the condo. Could not have been better. Mike was very informative and helpful in booking this condo. Looking forward to returning soon.

A great Portofino choice

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd year staying in a Portofino VRBO. Last time we were on the 17th floor in Tower 1 & this one is much closer to the ground (6th floor): it was so great to be able to lay on the couch and see the Gulf (rather than just sky)!! Extremely nice view with no other towers blocking the scenery. Convenient beach access & the tower pool/hot tub is never crowded.

Did a lot of searching before booking & this is a rare find to have 2 double beds in the second bedroom, rather than twin beds! We very much enjoyed our stay.

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.
