Can't wait to come back!! Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. This was probably our 8th trip to Pensacola Beach and was definitely the best! The condo and the portofino island resort are both wonderful! The condo is spacious and has everything you would need. There is so much to do at the resort we only went to the beach twice during our week long stay. It's so relaxing to sit outside on the balcony and just enjoy the view, the sunsets are beautiful. I recommend getting the wristbands if you want to do any other activities besides the beach. It's exclusively for the portofino guests. We used the jetskis, kayaks, paddle boards, we took the sailboat out twice, they have scooters you can use, the fun jumps in the water, we did the dolphin cruise and the cruise to the boardwalk, it was a blast! The wristbands give you unlimited access to all of that and more, I was really impressed. We can't wait to check our schedules and book again for next year!

Perfect for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

This is a BEAUTIFUL and clean condo in the spectacular Portofino Resort in our favorite vacation spot, Pensacola Beach Florida. Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) comfortably fit in this condo. It has a spectacular view of the sound, and we even got to enjoy viewing fireworks right in the comfort of the balcony. The bedrooms were very clean, had lots of storage space and large well-lit closets. The beds are incredibly soft and inviting, as well as lots of extra blankets if needed. Another big bonus were the beach towels, beach chairs and boogie boards that are available to use. This made packing much easier. The kitchen is very well stocked with all kitchen utensils you may need, even a blender for those frozen drinks and a large stock pot (we like to do a big seafood boil). The bathrooms are very clean and well stocked with towels. You may want to bring extra washcloths if you have more than 4 people. There is even hand soap available if those are one of the items you forgot to pick up at the grocery store (speaking from experience here lol). Overall, this makes for a relaxing, beautiful vacation stay. We will definitely be back!!

great view, comfy beds, bonus beach equipment for use!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) had a wonderful week long stay at Becky's condo and we HIGHLY recommend it. Very spacious and had all the comforts of home. Beds were SUPER comfortable and there were lots of extra blankets and sheets if needed. It was especially helpful to have beach chairs, beach towels, beach umberellas, and boogie boards available for our use so we did not have to pack those items. Also, there were other necessities available like hand soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, dish soap, those little things you might forget about. Also, plenty of bath towels were available. You may want to bring a couple extra washcloths if your family is larger than 4. As far as the resort amenities, you couldn't ask for more. Our kids loved having the choice of beach or pool at any time of the day. We didn't mind the walk back and forth because it gave us our needed exercise-especially with all the great seafood we ate all week. We brought a canopy for our days at the beach and it was one of the best things we packed. It's hot out there and this provided very good shade for the needed rest periods. Also, try swimming on the bay side just behind the large pool/lifestyle center. It's fun finding hermit crabs in the clear water. Speaking of lifestyle center, there's a spa and indoor pool, exercise equipment, tennis courts, fitness classes, etc. We did not need any of these amenities but they looked awesome. Portofino is our favorite place to stay on Pensacola Beach. It's out of the way but easily accessible from town. And-you have to ride the trolley into and around town (seasonal). It's fun for the kids and makes it so the parents can have some drinks without having to worry about driving around town. Portofino and Becky's condo were just awesome for our family. We highly recommend it and plan to return.

Vacation Stay

  • 2 of 5

The condo unit was ok, but I was disappointed in the overall cleanliness of the place. The first thing we did was vacuum the floors to get the sand off of them. The walls and doorways are pretty well beat up and need some paint and updating. It was at the bottom of the list of condo's that we have stayed in there. Little things like having to replace three light bulbs when we first arrived. Poor lighting overall, did not allow us to sit and read a book in the evening.

I would not come back to this unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bring our attention to some issues. We contacted the previous renter who was puzzled about the issues mentioned. They specifically had vacuumed the floors prior to departure as did and our very dependable cleaning company. The entire condo was painted in 2015 and recently touched up by the owners in June. The entrance door was painted in summer 2015 and is scheduled to be painted again August 2016. All the overhead lights have dimmer switches and occasionally guest don't adjust the dimmers to the bright position. Our onsite maintenance man/cleaning is a phone call away (we give all of the guests his contact information) for light bulb replacement or any other issues. We encourage our guest to call us with any issues. Thank You

A perfect 8 days!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at your condo can only be described as perfect. We had everything that we needed at the condo except for food. We had our grandchildren with us, so the pack and play was quite the blessing. The kitchen had everything that we needed for preparing meals. And there were more than enough beach chairs for the group that we had. The weather was wonderful and the water was clear and completely free of jellies or seaweed. The portofino has been our favorite beach destination for many years. Especially this condo! The view from the 19th floor is so pretty.

Nice Unit, Comfortable, View Questionable

  • 3 of 5

We loved the unit and attention to details to ensure renters are comfortable - nice plush mattress and pillows, kitchen appliances are top-notch, etc.

I rented the unit knowing I will get 1 of 2 things: beach-front OR sunset - we are supposed to view the sunset from the unit based off of the pictures posted (best if we could get both!:)

When we arrived before sunset, it was setting over the gulf that we had no view of - I believe during summer months the sunset will be visible from the unit (as the picture shows) from the balcony, but not during the winter seasons (December for sure). The sun does not shine at any part of the day over the unit's balcony during the winter months it seems.

If you are looking for a unit where you want plenty of sunlight and a view of the sunset, I would suggest this unit during summer months only. If you are not concerned about seeing the sunset or allowing sunlight to enter the unit during the winter months, then this unit is wonderful as far as the interior is concerned.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the unit. We work hard at trying to keep it comfortable and a home away from home. As the summer months pass and moves into winter the sunset view will change. Looking out over the bay/sound at night and seeing the lights of Pensacola is a beautiful view 365 days a year.
