AMAZING GULF FRONT VIEW IN PORTOFINO TOWER 3…BEST LOCATION OF ALL 5 TOWERS!

Indulge yourself in paradise! Wake up to the sound of the surf and incredible views of the gulf from bedrooms, living area, and your private balcony! Finish the day with views of the beautiful sunset and watching the dolphins cruise the shoreline.

Portofino Resort is referred to as the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Island for good reason. It is the largest development on the island, and the last one heading east, with eight miles of undeveloped Gulf Island National Seashore after it. This 28-acre complex is a uniquely modern, Mediterranean design, state-of-the-art vacation heaven, with something for every one of all ages. Approximately 64% of the entire complex is dedicated to ecological habitat areas, with only 36% being used for buildings, roads, pools etc.

Our unit faces southwest and is the closest tower to the beach out of the five towers, and the only thing you will see looking out the 40 feet of windows and deck is the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. Miles of spectacular breathtaking views of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore…sea, sand, and beautiful sunsets!

Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort are at least 300ft away from each other, and offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing, as well as, Men's & Women's bathrooms next to the pool.

The $5,000,000, 40,000-square-foot Lifestyle Center has two outdoor infinity pools with two large hot tubs, and an Olympic-size indoor lap pool, as well as a large private indoor hot tub. It has separate men's and women's areas which each feature sauna and steam rooms, as well as private lockers and shower facilities complete with all toiletries. Upstairs there is a state-of-the-art work-out facility with free weights, Cybex weight machines, and True brand treadmills, elliptical machines, and bicycles. There is also a natural juice and snack bar, featuring Starbucks coffee. There is also a special room with personal trainers available for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, spin classes, and many others. Water aerobics are taught in the indoor pool.

There are five, lighted, Rubico Hydro tennis courts on the property. The spa also offers message therapy, facials, and various body treatments.

When you get hungry there is the Terracotta (a fine dining restaurant) downstairs, as well as an outdoor grill restaurant by the pools, and an indoor and outdoor bar. Live music is often featured by the pools. The pool area is situated on the bay side, so you can walk out on the dock, or along the shore for eight miles of undeveloped, uninhabited beach, trees, rivers and lakes.

On both the gulf and the bay side at the complex are one- and two-person kayaks, water bikes, sailboats, surf and boogie boards for rent. On the bay side you can rent jet skis, sailboats, pontoon boat, and other types of personal watercraft. Or you can rent a regular bike and ride the paved walk/bike path for miles. It does not get any better than this!

There is a 65-passenger catamaran that can take you to the boardwalk for shopping, or a dolphin, sunset, or Blue Angels cruise. Or, within a short drive from the complex, you can indulge yourself in every kind of activity possible, including Pensacola Naval Museum, which is home to the Blue Angels and boasts one of the largest, indoor, air and sea museums in the world, Indian Temple Mound, a Civil War-era complex called Fort Pickens (which once held Geronimo), the Gulfarium, a zoo, Five Flags Motor Speedway with miniature Indy Cars for rental, the Seville Quarter with various live music venues, cinemas, horseback riding, shopping, endless antique stores and restaurants, fishing (shore, dock, and charters), miniature golf, motor cycle rental, electric funny car rental, jet ski rental, etc.

The condominium unit is equipped with everything you need to make this home for your stay. This is a two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath unit, with a king-size bed in the master suite, two separate closets, private Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, and toilet room. The second bedroom features 2 beds and its own private full bath. Each bedroom and the salon has a direct view of the ocean, and a door to the 28-foot balcony, which has seating for four, table, chase lounge, a stainless steel electric grill, and a glass rail to allow un-obstructed viewing of the ocean and beach.

The main living area features a full cozy couch with matching love sofa, recliner chair and a ottoman that converts into an extra bed, and a half bath. There is a DVD player, a 60-inch flat screen smart TV with access to Netflix, and music system in the main living area, and each bedroom has its own flat screen TV with DVD player.

The unit has Wi-Fi as well as Ethernet internet access.

The maple cabinet, granite countertop kitchen is fully equipped for making a gourmet meal, and includes a large, side-by-side refrigerator, flat surface stove, convection oven, full-size microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and a full array of dishes, cookware and spices. The dining room table seats six, with an eight-foot snack bar with two stools. Full linens are provided and there is a washer and dryer in the unit. A grocery shopping service is also available.

You must be at least 25 years of age to rent. This is a no pet, no smoking rental unit, located 15 minutes from downtown Pensacola, and 25 minutes from the local airport, with taxi service available. Any questions you may have on the complex, services, or area can be answered by the front desk concierge. Tower-3...2BR Amazing Vistas of the Gulf, Sound, and Gorgeous Sunsets!!!

About Jack Danks

Hello! We are Jack and Sandy Danks from Indiana. As Portofino owners since 2007, it has been a tremendous blessing for us to share our home-away-from-home with friends and family. We have four grown children and are enjoying this season of our lives as we are growing with son-in laws and grandchildren! Our hope is that those who choose to stay as our guests will find the decor' warm and inviting, the enmities provided a special bonus, and the superior housekeeping that keeps our home spotless, several of the reasons you choose to return year-after-year in creating your own special memories!

Jack Danks purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jack Danks chose Pensacola Beach

We love Pensacola Beach for its beautiful white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf. Most importantly, it is quiet, peaceful and safe. We had looked throughout the Panhandle of Florida for a second home, and the other beach towns were just too crowded. We didn't want to wait two hours at a restaurant to be seated or get up early just to secure a spot on the beach. The Portofino is three miles from the Boardwalk, where all of the beachfront restaurants and gift shops are with traveling accommodations by way of water (on the Portofino 1), or by trolley. It is also the last resort on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach, with twelve miles of un-touched National Seashore which provides the perfect backdrop for a vigorous run, casual walk or a fun bike ride along the paved unobstructed beachfront. If golf is your game there are plenty of nice courses in the area with the closest being Tiger Point Golf Club located directly across the bay from Portofino! With the convenience of a large city, Pensacola, just over the 3 mile bridge, provides plenty of things to do with its Historic Downtown, Pensacola Naval Air Station, the Aquarium, golf courses, and Cordova Mall. And if you need to take a break from the sun for a day, outlet malls in Destin are only 45 minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

The Portofino has the best amenities of any resort you will find. It is a gate-guarded community, so the only people experiencing the amenities provided are our guests and owners. You are welcome to enjoy eight pools and spas (one indoor), a large Fitness Center, a restaurant that provides pool-side service, five clay tennis courts, Adventure Cove for the kids, and even beach chair service. Rentals of bikes, scooters, jet skis, yolo boards, and the Portofino-owned pontoon boat are options as well! The resort spans from the Gulf to the Bay, allowing great views from every condo and virtually anywhere on the resort. Our Homeowners Association and the Premier Management group have both done an excellent job maintaining and introducing new amenities for our guests to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a great time at Portofino. The Condo was outstanding with a great view. We found it clean, plenty of space for our group of six, and a great beach. Kids enjoyed the pool which was located below our balcony. Parking was handy and always great to be in enclosed area.Our thanks to Jack and his family for sharing with us.

GREAT SUMMER VACATION SPOT!!!

  • 5 of 5
I vacationed in June with my teenage son and 2 of his friends. The condo had more than enough room for all of us to sit in the living room together and there was also enough seating on the lanai for everyone too. Since the ottoman easily converted to a twin sized bed, each boy had his own sleeping space.
The location was perfect for views of the ocean and also the pool, I could keep an eye on the kids while giving them some space to hang out together. They really enjoyed the fitness center and just walking around the resort.
The owners were VERY easy to work with and made sure to let me know that I could reach them if we needed anything. We had an incredible vacation, would definitely like to return.

Relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in late April 2014. The condo was spacious and clean -- the master bedroom suite was especially roomy. Two twin beds in the second bedroom were idea for two teen boys, and our daughter slept on the couch. Kitchen, dining and living areas provided everything we needed -- and the lanai was enormous! Views were spectacular, and even though it's 14 floors up, we could hear soothing, muted music from the pool area below. Both bedrooms had doors out to the lanai, as well.

The resort itself is set up superbly. There are five towers, and this condo is located in tower 3 -- the closest one to the beach. It's a VERY short walk out to the pool area and beach. The beach is beautiful and clean, and the water was unbelievably clear. We love to search for shells, and I have to tell you that this is the best shelling beach we have ever been to -- tons of gorgeous shells on the beach. Bring a snorkel mask, because you can find even bigger and better shells out in the gulf.

The resort is located right next to a state or national park area, which mean there is NOTHING built up on the beach to the east of the resort. It was an ideal area for walks and peace -- most mornings (8 or 9am), I would only see a few other people out on my walks.

The Publix grocery store is just about a five mile drive from the resort, and there are a good dozen restaurants on the way there -- without a doubt, Peg Leg Pete's Oyster Bar was a favorite of ours. It's all casual, so leave the fancy clothes at home.

We took the resort's Blue Angel Cruise on Tuesday morning to see the Blue Angels' flight training show. It was well worth the money, and we had a perfect view of the airshow.

We will be back again soon! LOVED our visit to Pensacola Beach the the Portofino Island Resort!!!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We can't imagine a better place to vacation. Portofino is family friendly, hospitable and can be a place with lots do or a time to sit back and relax, you decide. The memories we made while staying here is something we are grateful for. The view from the condo was breathtaking and the inside was clean and comfy, it truly felt like home (with a phenomenal view). The owners were very friendly and flexible with us. Eating in and dining out were both spectacular. The condo was well furnished and very up to date with flat screen TVs! I would highly recommend Portofino Tower 3 1403 to people of all ages. So much our family could say, but maybe this sums it up best, WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!
