Clean, comfortable and complete
Everything we were looking for! A very comfortable vacation home, pretty much had everything we needed. Gorgeous views to wake up to. Fun to watch all the tennis matches from the balcony. Great resort for our teenagers too, they had a good time. It was busy during spring break, but everything was available, no waits, not too crowded anywhere.
Just bring your own beach towels.
Thank you very much for your review! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Let us know when you want to visit again!
Property was great. We really liked it! We would definitely come back!
The only complaints we have are that the resort does not take cash anywhere. The other thing is we would have liked to have extra blankets for the beds/sleeper sofa.

Tommy is great, and the unit is great! We will be back.
We loved the unobstructed view of the intercostal and Range point with the estuary. The condo was easily accessible to the beach , more so than the other towers. The condo was well equipped with necessary kitchen items and nicely decorated . Being previous owners at Portofino and having stayed at all 5 towers. We find this our favorite unit!
We had one small issue which was handled immediately after contacting the owner.
It was Great, very nice, clean, great location....we stay again...
AWESOME! Stayed a lot of places and this was one of the nicest. The owner was very nice to deal with, thank you Tom!
