Kitchen has all the amenities of a modern home and there's a gas grill on the balcony, which includes additional dining space for 6 al fresco.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at your condo this past week. Everything was so nice, especially the view!! We had everything we need in the kitchen which was nice since so many times we have rented in condos and cabins that have only 4 plates, 4 glasses etc. we cooked in several nights so we were really happy to have planet of dishes and cookware.

Priceless Memories

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Renee for making my dream come true with your condo. It was everything and more than we could ever imagine. I brought my family and groceries and felt like we were at home. The decorations were so adorable that no matter where we looked, there was no mistaken where we were, at the ocean. This elite condo didn't miss a beat with everything at our fingertips. My youngest grand daughter first look at the beach and ocean will always be in my heart and hers. My sister also stayed in tower one, but when she saw our balcony, it was yours that we shared a cup of coffee each morning to see the gulf view. I hated to leave and hopefully will get to come back, maybe bring my husband and relax a little more. The kids loved the pools and activities, and were in bed every night by 10pm. I felt very safe with the resort that I was able to take nightly walks and enjoy the beauty of the resort. It was perfect. I would recommend this condo to anyone that needs a beautiful view and all the comforts of home. One late night while sitting on the balcony, I had an owl fly up and perch on the landing of the veranda on the floor beneath your condo. It is just that amazing! Thanks again for being so informative and gracious with the late check out. Shirley

Perfect Vacation on Pensacola Beach

  • 5 of 5

Three lifelong friends and I stayed at this condo for a quick reunion and LOVED it. The condo is tastefully decorated with a fantastic view of the beach. It is throughly equipped. We had everything we needed and more. Pensacola Beach has to be the most beautiful beach I have ever seen, and this condo was the perfect place to stay. There were great restaurants as well as excellent facilities at Portofino, with multiple pools, hot tubs, and an indoor pool. Many great water activities including water slides, kayaks and jet skis. A great vacation destination.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed and wanted for our "girls trip" to Pensacola Beach. It was perfectly furnished and decorated and had two comfortable bedrooms with bathrooms. There was also a half bath near the entrance and a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The living area was very comfortable as well, including a sleeper/ sofa and led to a roomy balcony with fantastic views of both the gulf and bay. The Portifina had all the amenities one would hope to have for a perfect vacation and we can't wait to visit again soon.

Extended Stay in a Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the door of this condo, all we could think was WOW! The beautiful Caribbean decor compliments the breathtaking views out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. Pictures posted on VRBO are amazing, but do not do this unit justice! We found it very clean, with excellent quality furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen, and a spacious balcony.

There is so much to do at Portofino. Activities are at your fingertips - multiple pools, exercise room, tennis courts, juice bar, spa, restaurants, a little store, equipment rentals and pontoon excursions. And then there is the sugar white sand of Pensacola Beach - it is spectacular! We spent many mornings enjoying that gorgeous gulf view from our balcony and watching sunsets from there in the evenings.

We have family close by and loved spending time with them at the beach and in the condo preparing meals and playing games. What a perfect, relaxing unit for doing so much or just doing nothing ... watching the aqua blue waters of the gulf wash ashore, walking on the beach, looking for shells, spotting dolphins.

My husband and I were so fortunate to spend an extended time here ... which allowed us to try multiple excellent restaurants and visit unique shops nearby, Ft. Pickens on the opposite end of the beach, the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Joe Patti's seafood, and so many other stores and sights.

All the residents and staff at Portofino are friendly and helpful. Renee was a gracious owner and so easy to work with, despite our many questions. We highly recommend her unit for anyone wanting an amazing condo with colors and a beachy feel that is so inviting. We are hoping to return next fall!

Owner's Response: What a beautiful review!!! I might have to change my description of the condo to simply say, "Read THIS review!" We certainly hope you will be back again (and again). Thank you for booking with us and for taking the time to write a lovely and thoughtful review.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. The views were beautiful and the spacious balcony made the vacation. I could have stayed on the balcony the whole time. We made use of the grill several times, and had most meals on the balcony.

The beach there is beautiful, and quite less populated than the rest of Pensacola Beach. The Portofino property is huge and maybe a little disorienting. The restaurants, spa, and beach rentals are maybe a bit more expensive than the rest of Pensacola, but definitely swankier. There is almost nothing in the way of staples in their convenient store, and what the do have has an incredible mark-up ($10 for salt and pepper), so be prepared to buy everything in Pensacola before you head to the beach. However if you run out of wine, there are a number of reasonable options!

It was a great trip, perfect for friends and family. I hope to make it back there soon!
