About Roxolana

I relocated to Pensacola Beach in 1993. My husband and I traveled many places in the world but we fell in love with Pensacola Beach. We do get spoiled here by the beach's spectacular scenery - not many beaches in the world could stand a comparison to our pristine land with beautiful sugar-white dunes and emerald waters.

Roxolana purchased this condo in 2005

Why Roxolana chose Pensacola Beach

At Portofino you really feel like you are on a remote island far away from a stressful modern life yet at the same time not deprived from technology or social life in case you miss it... And so many things to do right here, without leaving the resort.

The elegance and serenity of living is nestled right here on a barrier island of Santa Rosa, between the sugar-white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and Intra-coastal Waterway. You will not want to leave!

Even Europeans find the place spectacular!

What makes this condo unique

With an unobstructed water view in every room you feel like on a cruise ship! At night you still see the far away city lights and the beautifully lighted Lifestyle Center Area.

Family or single - you will find here home away from home and I believe that you will have an amazing vacation at Portofino that will make you wanting to come back again and again.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Roxolana,

We had a very nice time. Portifino is a lovely development. It was really nice to have the bay behind us to use since we had "red flag" days during the time we were there. Your condo lacked nothing we needed. I know you worked very hard to clean before we arrived because I found everything spotless! We will definitely think of returning to your unit again.

The condo was lovely...it was spacious and clean

  • 4 of 5

The weather played a big part in our stay...it was unseasonably cool...which had us in the condo more than usual...the furniture in the condo was very uncomfortable ! We just couldn’t relax in the chairs or the couch...But the staff at the resort were very friendly and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing the review. I am sorry you had a bad weather something that is not in anyone's control unfortunately. As to the furniture I am surprised to hear that since I have never had anyone complaining about it just the opposite. I usually ask all my guests to let me know if they need anything and surprisingly didn't hear from you during your stay. I could have tried to accommodate to improve your stay.

Great condo, great location! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time. Portofino is a resort with many activities and amenities. We had a blast on the scoot coups, kayaks, bikes, golf cart and paddle boards. I really appreciated the condo having extra toiletries, laundry soap and dishwasher soap. It was an added touch that most condo rentals don't have but was appreciated. We didn't want to leave.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo met our needs. It was low season and we had the pools practically to ourselves. Short walk to beach & great views on balcony. We cooked a lot of basic meals and kitchen had most things you need. I wouldn't expect to cook gourmet or do serious baking. Roxolana is very responsive and had maintenance issues handled quickly. They provide descent starters like tp, paper towels, dishsoap, etc. It was great to be able to do laundry as well. The beds were descent, but I would suggest upgrading the mattres and pillows as they are not 4star hotel level. Also the master bed is extremely high. I'm 38, 5'5" and active and I fell getting out of it so if you are very short or have mobility issues this is not the place for you unless you plan to sleep in the guest room which is a normal height queen. This condo overlooks the pools which are beautiful, but one downside is that they have a lot of weddings at the pool - 2 the 1 week we were there and the music is very loud in condo till 10:00 pm. It's crazy how much you can hear 16 floors up with doors & windows shut. I probably wouldn't care about music except that it woke up my toddler one night. We also rented bikes at the Portofino which was very convenient and we found the food at the restaurants to be tasty. The extra space (2 bed 2.5 bath), kitchen, laundry, grill on balcony, plus property amenities for about the same price as you would pay for a basic hotel room make this place a no brainer. Plus a responsive, flexible owner who is invested in you having a good time - win win!
