I went with my daughter and grandchildren to the beach last Augaust and was in for a real treat ! The stay at this condo was exceptional !It was well furnished and decorated, extremely comfortable( even the sofa sleeper had an upgraded mattress that was actually just as comfortable as my own bed). The views from this condo are SPECTACULAR and the sunsets are just amazing! The kitchen was well stocked with all china and glassware, and had plenty of wine glasses( A BIG PLUS for me)..I would definitely stay here again and HIGHLY recommend this condo! the owners were great to work with also. _

Owner's reply: This review was imported from another listing that I have on this unit,,, I later realized that I had to copy them and post them under,, posting it made it look like I reviewd my own condo,, which was not the case,,, THANKS BUD PICOU

This unit is the most beautifully decorated and it is first class in every way! Very comfortable furnishings - living room AND bedrooms. Wonderful master suite has super large jetted tub, separate shower, double vanity counters. Plush King sized bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV. Second bedroom is large and also has a private bath. Queen sized bed and flat screen TV. Both bedrooms and living room open up to a very large lanai that offers spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico and evening sunsets! A built in outdoor grill making cooking a breeze and there are plenty of seating for family and guests. The indoor kitchen is fully stocked, large and outfitted with all of the comforts and appliances you would expect in such a quality condominium. A large dining room and keeping area lets family and friends visit while preparing food, etc. A nicely appointed half bath is adjacent to the beautiful entry foyer. This place had full sized washer and dryer, baby crib, beach chairs, beach toys, literally a surprising amount of extras for the money! Portofino has EIGHT swimming pools (separate pools for each tower, an indoor pool, and a magnificent infinity pool with lounge chairs, bar and grill). A workout room and spa is also available. Parking is reserved so you will always have a spot to park. TRULY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CONDO AND EXPERIENCE WE HAVE EVER HAD IN OUR 38 YEARS OF VACATION RENTALS! We WILL return! I just can not brag about this unit enough!

Little piece of heaven!!

We rented during the summer of last year and I have to say it was the best! My family and I enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave. From the balcony the views of the sound side and the beach front were breath taking. I recommend this unit 100% to anyone!!! Thanks for a wonderful vacation and look forward to enjoying our time again this year.

I really cannot say enough fabulous things about Bud and Mike and the Portofino (especially their particular condo). They are AMAZING and EASY to work with. The Portofino is a dream vacation destination! Pools, restaurants, bar, ocean, Santa Rosa sound, gym, beach, bikes, long pathways on which to walk, run or bike ride, etc etc! It even has a lap pool for those of us who like to swim for exercise! It is a dream! And Bud and Mike's condo is the BEST! Their view is unobstructed and of both the ocean and the sound. Their condo comes equipped with EVERYTHING you will need to have the most perfect stay. They make the check in/out process seamless. They are true professionals, and super kind to boot. We have stayed twice with them already and will stay again very soon!!!

a perfect retreat

Our family needed a little end of summer retreat ...... We could not have asked for a nicer, more welcoming lake house to spend a long weekend. It felt as if we had never left home, with the exception of that great big lake right outside the back door! Karon even made sure the weather was perfect for our time on the lake enjoying fishing and water sports! We will DEFINITELY look forward to a return trip!!

once again??...

for the fourth year in a row, we spent a wonderful week in our favorite Florida condo?we feel so at home here, the family automatically asks if we're staying in our "regular" place at the beach!
Bud goes above and beyond to assure we are comfortable and well taken care of? For more reasons than one, Bud was our hero in our vacation week! Love it, love it. . . .

The furnishings are comfortable as well as beautiful. This area is wonderful for the beach, great restaurants, and lots to do with the family. Bud is great to work with and has been so helpful with answering any & all questions we've ever had. As long as we can, we look forward to staying here!

Awesome Condo Portofino 1003 tower 5

The whole booking process was fast and easy thanks to Bud. The condo was very clean and comfortable just like being at home. We especially love the balcony patio where we had the best views of the gulf and bay and the grill was especially nice. I would recommend this condo to anyone and we cant wait to come back and rent this same unit. Upon checking out it was the same easy procedure. The Portofino resort is beautiful and very friendly staff. We loved being able to walk across the street to go to the beach. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Pensacola Beach with awesome views, this is the place!

Best Portofino Stays

This was our 2nd time staying in this unit. We came back to it b/c we loved it so much. We've stayed at a few other units at the Portofino (we visit this area very often). This is one of the best units at the Portofino - I agree with other reviewer that said photos posted here do not do the unit and views justice. Bud and Mike are wonderful to work with - they make the reservation, check-in and check-out processes so easy and stress free. They were very prompt in answering any questions or requests. And they are just nice people. We will definitely be coming back to this unit whenever we visit the area.
The Portofino itself is wonderful. We love this place - started coming out here before kids and loved it. We have a toddler now and still love it as much. The spa is amazing (best massages and facials!), pools and beach are so nice and staff's customer service have always been excellent. It's also close to many great restaurants/bars (if you have little ones, go to Peg Leg's where you can enjoy dinner and drinks while your kids play in their playground).
