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.
