Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Book on the world wide web at "pensacolabeach1506"

Finally! A beach condo decorated and furnished for and by young, contemporary professionals with all-inclusive rates. No gimmicky themes, no tacky decorations, no white washed furniture, fake plants or tropical patterns! No hidden expenses or added fees. This unit was decorated and furnished as if we live here, with no expenses spared. From elevator to beach - 50 yards! takes less than 60 seconds to walk to National Seashore!!!!!

A TRUE professional's home away from home with designer furnishings, gourmet kitchen, and contemporary art. This unit offers breathtaking views of the Pensacola sound and you are only footsteps away from white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of Pensacola Beach.

PLEASE NOTE: in order to keep our unit operating to our high standards, we have had to institute an EXCESSIVE CLEANING/KEY RETURN fee to all guests. All guests, no matter how many nights rental, will pay a cleaning deposit of $150 in addition to the standard cleaning that is included. In the event that there is excessive uncleanliness, e.g. vomitus, feces, excessive garbage, trash, dirty dishes, then additional maid services will be deducted from this deposit. Additionally, if keys are not returned within 7 days, rekeying of the locks will be deducted from this deposit. It is unfortunate that some guests do not respect our home as we do, and we hope that this will prevent any excessive gross negligence of our home. Once the maid verifies that the unit is in standard expected "wear and tear/use" and all keys are returned, then the $150 is returned via check to the guest.

Additionally: Use of the Stainless Grill on the balcony is not included with rental. Due to recent abuse and negligence by guests, the grill is only available once a $25 plus tax grill cleaning fee is paid. The fee can be selected and paid for upon booking; once paid, the keys will be supplied along with all other unit keys and rental packet. Without payment of the grill cleaning fee, the grill will remain locked during a guests stay.

Best VRBO rental I have EVER had!!! (and I am PICKY!!)

  • 5 of 5
I just got back last week from spending a wonderful week in this upscale, and VERY CLEAN unit. There are many things that I care about, so let me itemize them:
1) Parking space: When you get there, you will be tired, and even though they have dolly's for you readily available, it was so nice to have a decent parking spot, fairly close to the main entrance elevator. If you are like me and are traveling every day and lugging things in/out of the condo it was nice to have to just go around the corner and have your car handy (note: other units are NOT so lucky).
2) The kitchen and master bathroom are amazing! (always a little embarrassing when you rent something nicer than your own home!....made me want to get my kitchen re-done when I came home)..one caveat re: master whirlpool bathroom : I would suggest the installation of a grab bar (I am occupational therapist and that first step is a doozy when you get in/out of the tub!)
3) Location: a) this is in Bldg. 5 which is meaningless, but has a wonderful sunset view, and is also set back from the other buildings which makes it, in my opinion nicer and not so noisy (also on the 15th floor and again. better view, less noisy)
b) Portofino itself is a great location if you are a runner/bicyclist: ian easy 26 mile out/back to Ft. Pickens which is a nice way to start the day, and I did a 46 mile loop if you want to head down to Navarre beach, and then go over that bridge, back up 98 and come over the bridges and back to Santa Rosa. Also for running it was excellent: first day there I ran into 'town' or whatever you call it (towards the bridge) and had breakfast at the Native Café (which I DON'T recommend: grossly overpriced food and toast that came directly from the Dollar Tree store...yuck! I got a bill for $16.oo for a plain omelet and an iced tea!) BUT it was nice to have a place for breakfast albeit tourist-ridden and mediocre at best). Also, nice bike/running paths in EITHER direction from Portofino.
4) Gym Facility: excellent facility on the property. It was never crowded and had top of the line Cybex machines and a nice area you could do some stretching/sit ups in w/o being on top of other people...a real plus in my opinion. (*note: this is in the bldg. with a restaurant/spa/small shops and an overpriced smoothie bar...none of which I availed myself).
5) Staff: Courtesy patrol: Everyone was pleasant and helpful...
Simply put, I lucked out by finding this unit. You will NOT be disappointed!!

Review #6295960 "Not your grandmother's condo"

This condo is the nicest one we have stayed in yet! The kitchen is equipped with anything you could possibly need - Wolfgang Puck pots, nice stemware and other glasses, a TV, tupperware that fills an entire cabinet. Each cabinet is chocked full of quality pieces. The linens are beautiful, as is the furniture and the view. The resort offers many activities appropriate for folks of all ages. And, last but not least, the condo owners were wonderful to work with. I urge you to consider this condo for your next vacation. We will certainly return

Great Place to Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 stayed here during spring break. We absolutely loved the condo! The condo is beautiful and well maintained and is decorated in a modern/contemporary way. There is no over the top or tacky beach décor. The uniquely shaped dining room table is a great place for meals that comfortably seats 8. The kitchen is very well stocked with pretty much anything you need. There are a number of ipod/iphone docking stations throughout the condo which came in handy. We also used the Playstation in the condo to watch DVDs and the owner provided well written instructions on how to use, which were very helpful. Free Wi-Fi is included and easy to access. The floor to ceiling windows provide an excellent view of the Santa Rosa Sound. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony during the day, evening and night. The in-room washer/dryer was nice to have. Indoor parking was also a plus!

At the Portofino, we used the pool at our Tower, the main pool and the tennis courts. We also walked across the street to the beach and played volleyball, Frisbees, walked along the beach and just relaxed.

The owner was very responsive to questions during the booking process and while we were at the condo. We really enjoyed the condo, and would definitely stay here again!

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and our son stayed about 4 days a few years ago and this is a beautiful condo and we have stayed in several difirent condos since. But this was our favorite place yet because of the location and the amenties. You are right at both the sound and gulf and the window view from every room in the condo is breath taken. We loved it and it's time to return back. I promise you will not be dissapointed if you book this place.

Wonderful get-a-way

  • 5 of 5
The condo was just as pictured. Everything fit the description with no surprises. We utilized the mobile luggage carriage for luggage as well as to get bags of food for the Christmas meal to the condo.
My daughter-in-law is in a wheel chair and by removing the doors to the 2nd bedroom and bath, the room was accessible. The angle of the doorway also afforded privacy. The paved walk way on property as well as off also allowed her to push for about 3 miles. She was able to at least get out and continue her exercise routine.
We really appreciated the kitchen appliances, dishes and extras made meal prep easy. The condo has more than enough dishes for a large dinner party. Since the weather was cold, planning and making our meals when we chose to stay in was a snap.
The indoor pool was a hit for my granddaughter. We loved the beach access from the property and my daughter-in-law was able to use the walk without any problems. Club area totally accessible! We may return during the summer when we can get in more beach time.
Oh, a car is really needed.
