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.

Terrific soundside view. Perfect retreat for family of four

  • 5 of 5

My husband, grown children, and I stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday. The resort itself has upped its game in recent years, and so this relatively lower priced unit was a great find. The whirlpool tub in the master bath is a great feature.

I especially enjoyed the sound side view, which at night twinkled with the low-lying lights of my hometown, Gulf Breeze, and Pensacola beyond.

The "lifestyle center" has top of the line work-out equipment, a juice and coffee bar, and wonderfully warm pools and jacuzzis.

Nice cabin for two

  • 4 of 5

Although it sleeps many, it really is a cabin for two (if you are a light sleeper). You can hear every foot fall and noise from the upstairs sleeping loft in the small downstairs bedroom. How small is that bedroom, well you can get from the door to the bed on one side stepping normally. You have to sidestep and squeeze around the other two sides.

All of the furniture is comfortable (including the beds). The upstairs heart shaped jacuzzi is fine and setup very romantically. It is the one room in the cabin with a lot of room. We used the the jacuzzi outside most of the time (it is protected from view by a lot of trees and distance to nearby cabins).

The cabin owner was always available by phone and exceptionally helpful when we needed him (we arrived in the rain and at sunset and our access code to the key box on the door handle was incorrect).

There are bears in the area - so follow the owner's trash instructions. I did not one night and spent time the next morning cleaning up the trash that the Bears skattered around the night before. We did see a bear on the porch outside the sliding glass door one night.

Parking is near the cabin but across the driveway (accessing all the cabins nearby). There is room for several cars to park there. There are a lot of steep stairs leading up to the main door (we mostly used the sliding door that accessed the covered porch)(less stairs and not so steep).

No dishwasher and tiny (but fully functional) kitchen

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a well maintained condo. It was layed out nicely and very clean. The location was very quiet and the pool and the spa next to the parking garage was really nice. We stayed a week and only called maintaince 1 time and that was to change some light bulbs which he came right on our to do so. I would definitely stay here again
