About the property

Condo 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths Free Internet Sleeps 8


This stunning 3 bedroom condo has been designer furnished with $70,000 worth of high end furnishings. This may be the nicest condo you have ever stayed in.

PORTOFINO is the ultimate luxury destination on the entire Gulf coast. Our Condo is in tower 4 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.

Ours has a spectacular Gulf and uninterrupted SW to NW view of the inter-coastal waterway and the length of the Santa Rosa Island giving some remarkable sunset views . If this unit is booked, please ask me about my other wonderful 2 bedroom Portofino and Sans Souci properties listed on VRBO.

PORTOFINO has many amenities which are yours to enjoy for free 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. On-site pro who actually played on the circuit available for private or group lessons.

Swim in any of the 8 on-site HEATED pools and hot tubs.

You have free admittance to 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).

Our condominium is located in Tower Four, on 8th 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/wireless 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 85 foot long balcony off the living area and bedrooms allows for spectacular views.

The master bedroom has a true KING SIZE BED, the 2nd bedrooms has 2 queen-sized beds and the third bedroom has one queen. Full-size washer and dryer are in the Condo for use.

There is an outdoor electric grill for your use.

There are four beach chairs/ 1 umbrella 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.

Luxurious furnishings reminiscent of the finest five star hotels decorate the entire unit.

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 42' TV is in the living room.

Unfortunately, boats and motorcycles are not allowed on the property. You will have to store them off-site.

Pricing does not include Portofino beach chairs, the Portofino boat or taxes. Beach chairs are available in the unit and you are welcome to take them to the beach.

Please note, I have 3 condos in Portofino and 3 condos in Sans Souci and do NOT update my calendar until all are rented for a certain time period. That way, I can offer you a different unit if this one is booked.

About Mike Moran

OK, that is not a picture of me but is one of my Grandson. He has had too much beach. But really you can not have too much beach. I am a retired Navy Supply Corps Commander and my wife is a retired ballet dancer/teacher. I know clean and she knows nice so you will definitely have a clean/nice condo to stay in. Come join us.

Mike Moran purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mike Moran chose Florida Panhandle

Portofino is the premier destination resort on the entire Gulf Coast.

What makes this condo unique

Three bedroom units are truly a home. Stunning views, fabulous decorations, amenities unlimited.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am posting reviews left in my guest book to offset the one false review left by a customer who posted erroneous info because I would not make a refund for early departure. It is clearly stated in my email and sign in sheet that there was no refund for early departure.

1. Jun 2013...Your condo is beautiful and we truly felt at home! It had everything we needed for the week and everyone was comfy. Thank you for being helpful and professional. We have booked with VRBO several times over the years and this has been our Most pleasant experience...Ann

2. Aug 2013....Beautiful Place...Wonderful memories...Great time...Priceless! thank you for the reading material. We will definitely be back....Paula

3. Aug 2013...Amazing few days of fun, friends, and much needed relaxation. Thank you so much for sharing the condo. It was perfect in all ways-great view, great beach, pools etc. Hope to be back one day soon... the Alabama crew

4. Aug 2013...Mike we just love your holiday home. Great views and great beds. We loved the extras, games and books to read. Thank you so much. We totally loved your place and everything around it. We will be back...Woodlands Texas

5. Sep 2013 Had a great time. We loved the contemporary look. The view was great off the balcony...June

I could go back farther in time and quote more people. But hopefully between this and the other posted reviews and all the other reviews on my 4 other properties, you will get the idea that one bad apple does not reflect the quality, cleanliness and accommodation that we offer.

We had such a wonderful stay in this beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable condo. The views are great: the beach, the bay and the gorgeous beach houses! This was our second stay at Portifino; we would recommend the complex and this condo to everyone. It was perfect for our family of 7 adults. Definitely want to come back!

Best trip made perfect by this beautiful condo. Views were spectacular! Family of 5 adults all enjoyed being together with plenty of space. Beach across the street was used daily. Pool was an added enjoyment in the evenings. Lovely place to relax and would love to come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and your nice review. Please come again and visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We went snorkeling last week 2 miles from Portofino and saw 12 sea turtles, one octopus and thousands of other fish; only a few tropicals but a truly spectacular swim.

Luxury in Portofino

One week was not enough in this outstanding unit. We have stayed in many condos at Portifino over the years, but this was by far the most beautiful. We hope to return on a regular basis!

Blue Angels trip for my dad

  • 5 of 5

My father is 82 and in a wheelchair (he can take a few steps). As a Navy veteran, he wanted to come to see the Blue Angels. I began looking for a 2-3 bedroom condo for my parents and husband, figuring it would be less expensive for us than 2 hotel rooms. We had no idea how amazing it would be - and the tiny difference in price between the 2 and 3 bedroom was well worth it. This condo is beautiful (I mean BEAUTIFUL!!!), spacious (HUGE), well-appointed, and has spectacular views - of two bodies of water...sunrises AND sunsets! Dad was able to get around easily - and with his shower seat, the walk-in shower was perfect. We didn't even take in the gym, spa, or pools (no time - will next time!), but were soooooo pleased with our experience (exceptionally!). Even though it was November, we were able to enjoy our one free-day on the beach (I've never seen whiter sand, or bluer water - not even in the Caribbean), and since the condo is near a boardwalk, my dad was also able to enjoy it. I am already looking at booking a girls beach getaway next year! BOOK THIS CONDO! You will NOT be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I am so glad your father was able to enjoy our fabulous Fall weather and the condo. You have given me big shoes to fill. We want all our customers to be as happy with the condo as you were. Please bring all your friends and come again and again.
