About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Be the first guests to enjoy this newly renovated condo at The Portofino! We are in Tower Four, on the eighteenth floor with PANORAMIC GULF VIEWS....180 degree views for over ten miles!! You will love Tower Four because it is next to The Lifestyle Center (where you will spend a lot of time or just knowing that the kids are close by), has a private pool overlooking the Bay, and is the furthest building from the road, for less road noise. Since it is the last development before 12 miles of untouched beach, there is not traffic passing through.

Situated on 28 acres, The Portofino is directly next to the undisturbed Gulf Island National Seashore and overlooks the sugar white sand and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is isolated from the noise and congestion of busy beach towns, yet is just minutes away from the shopping and restaurants of The Boardwalk and the historic city of Pensacola.

Imagine waking up every morning to the sounds of waves on the beach and the cool breezes off the Gulf. You can enjoy breakfast on the balcony with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. After breakfast, head over to The Lifestyle Center for a massage at the Aveda European Spa or take a yoga class at the state-of-the-art Fitness Center.

You can also take a swim in the indoor Junior Olympic swimming pool overlooking Santa Rosa Bay or if the weather is nice, use the two infinity-edge outdoor swimming pools, each with its own spa. For lunch, you can eat by the pool or dine inside at the new Coastal Restaurant, where they serve both lunch and dinner.

After lunch, you can take a walk along the beach, rent a bike and ride through the National Seashore, or take a tennis lesson from the pro on one of the five Rubico clay tennis courts. You can also visit downtown Pensacola, go to the Gulf Breeze Zoo, or visit the Naval Air Museum where the Blue Angels are based.

For dinner, there is a fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor grill on the balcony. But since you're on vacation, the Boardwalk is a quick five minute drive that has many restaurants to choose from. Once back in the condo, you can watch TV, read a book, or fall asleep, knowing you can wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

Whatever you choose to do, The Portofino's luxury combined with one of the world's most beautiful beaches will make your vacation a memorable one. Our recent renovation includes fresh paint, new furniture, updated electronics, new washer/dryer, new sink and dishwasher, and new balcony furniture with seating and lounging for six.

**Portofino Resort has 24-hour gated security.

**On eighteenth floor, our unit overlooks the entire Santa Rosa Island and the Gulf.

**Very open floorplan with floor-to-ceiling windows provide breathtaking views from EVERY room.

**Tile floors and granite countertops throughout.

**Jetted tub and separate shower in master bath.

**Fully equipped gourmet kitchen and outdoor electric grill.

**Master Suite has king bed, guest bedroom has a queen, living room has a chaise sectional that can accommodate one person as well as a queen size sleeper sofa.

**Beds have 400 Thread-Count Sateen cotton sheets and Memory Foam mattress pads.

**50 inch LCD TV with Blu Ray player in living room, 43 inch 4K TV with Roku programming in master bedroom, 37 inch TV in guest bedroom.

**Included high speed DSL connections and Wi-Fi access.

**New washer and dryer in unit.

**Very family-friendly condo - with high chair, pack-and-play, plastic plates and cups, Netflix programming, small library of kids' movies, etc.

About Louis Trinh

We live in the Atlanta suburb of Cumming, Georgia. I work at a hospital near us, and my wife, Kristine, stays at home taking care of our four children. Though Pensacola Beach is five hours away, its still the closest beach to us. We all enjoy the road trip, as it helps us bond as a family. We take a lot of pride in keeping our Portofino Condo perfect and our guests happy. The condo is filled with amenities to meet our family's needs, and we have the best housekeeper who keeps it spotless. We care about your experiences and will do everything we can to make sure you come back.

Louis Trinh purchased this condo in 2006

Why Louis Trinh chose Pensacola Beach

We love Pensacola Beach for its beautiful white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf. Most importantly, it is quiet and peaceful. We have 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 for two hours at a restaurant or get up early just to secure a spot on the beach. Pensacola was perfect for us, with its Historic Downtown, Pensacola Naval Air Station, and the conveniences of a larger city, there are plenty of things for us to do. The Portofino is three miles from the Boardwalk, where all of the beachfront restaurants and gift shops are. It is also the last resort on the eastern end of Pensacola Beach, with twelve miles of un-touched National Seashore, you will always find a peaceful beach to relax on.

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 enjoying the amenities are guests and owners. With 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. 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.

Beautiful view of ocean. Well appointed and appropriately stocked condo.

  • 4 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Potofino Resort for our vacation, each time in a different building and unit. We have enjoyed each one and have always had breathtaking views! The owner Louis was great to work with and called us after check in to see how things were for us. As clean and pleasant as the condo was, we did experience a very hard mattress in the master bedroom and the sofa was quite worn. Other than that it was a very inviting condo with fantastic views. We love the resort and all it has to offer.

Paradise on Santa Rosa Island

  • 5 of 5

Our hopes and expectations for a restful, enjoyable two month stay at this beautiful condo have been exceeded. Truly panoramic views from the balcony, beautiful furnishings and decor, a well-stocked kitchen, miles of uncrowded, amazing white sand beaches, great for long walks, and hunting for shells. The blue waters, gorgeous sunrises, sunsets, skies at night - photos don't begin to capture the true natural beauty. There are so many amenities in this condo, and at this resort (including pool at each building, and a great fitness center next door, for example). To top it all off, the owner is attentive from start to finish. Louis, we appreciate the opportunity to stay at your wonderful condo. Potential future guests - you will love this place - book it now (but leave it clear for our return!)

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second trip here, and it was just as amazing as the first one! This time, we brought my sister and her husband and our 2 year old nephew with. Our children are now 9 and 11, and all 3 kids had a blast on this trip (as well as the adults!). The first time we vacationed here, we did a lot of sight seeing and tourist activities. This time, we simply hung out at the Portofino, and only left to get groceries! The pools are all beautiful, and we spent the majority of our time going back and forth between the beach and the main pool. Louis provided fantastic customer service, he is very prompt in answering by email...he was also in communication with us by text message while we were staying on his property, making it clear that we wanted to make sure everything was as expected. It is obvious that he takes pride in his property, and wants to make sure that each of this guests enjoy their experience. We have already recommended this property to our friends, and we are hoping next time we visit, we can bring my parents to experience this breathtakingly beautiful place! Thank you, Louis, for your hospitality. We look forward to coming back!
