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 Florida Panhandle

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.

Exquisite!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fabulous as is the owner! My friend and I rented this condo for a week in 2015 and 2016. The condo is clean, well stocked and has the most beautiful views of the soundside and the gulf. The owner is always available to renters and is prompt in responding to texts and calls. She checked in throughout the week to be sure that we had everything we needed. We will stay here again in the future.

Potofino Condo

My family and I enjoyed our week long stay at Portofino. The resort is beautiful and Roxolana's condo was fantastic! The condo and resort exceeded our expectations and Roxolana was a pleasure to deal with. My family and I are already talking about returning next year!

Great experience all around

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Roxolana's condo over Memorial Day weekend. It was spacious, beautifully furnished, and very clean. The unit offers a beautiful view of the sounds and overlooks the pool.

Roxolana was very responsive and organized, making the planning process smooth and painless. She provided clear instructions on checking in / getting settled, and shared additional information on the Portofino and Pensacola Beach. She also returned out deposit very quickly.

All in all, this was a perfect trip, in no small part thanks to the accommodations provided by Roxoloana.

Thank you!

Relaxation: Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year returning to the Portofino Island Resprts renting Roxalana's vacation home. This year was a bit different as I am recovering from a broken ankle that did not stop us from using the resorts facility's. Lounging down by the pools having lunch in the Terrazzo Grill visiting the Spa shopping in the Market Place and there is a full gym to work out! Roxalana's vacation home is 2 bedrooms fully furnished a kitchen equipped to make either simple dinners or a special fancy large sit down dinner party. The great room has all the comforts of home; clean comfortable furnishings washer & dryer& She has even thought ahead to supply beach chairs beach toys for the kids even a umbrella. There is plenty to do in the down town area from site seeing or deep gulf fishing. Each year we enjoy our stay more and more! Thank you Roxalana for your hospitality. See you next spring!! Eileen & Jim Cooke

Absolutely outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and resort is fantastic! We always stay on Pensacola Beach but have never stayed at Portafina before and it was beyond our expectations. The condo is very nice and wonderfully furnished. The weather was not the greatest but we had a most enjoyable stay!

I definitely expect we will be staying here again.

Fantastic Portofino Perfect Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tower II, 16th FLoor in the Portofino Resort in Pensacola Beach was great. The magnificent views from every room, great kitchen and site amenities all made this a great Thanksgiving holiday to remember. We loved the pools, hot tub, spa, fitness center & beach plus all the other activities available. We had Thanksgiving dinner catered by the restaurant on site and delivered to our door...it was delicious! We would recommend this highly!
