Amazing Gulf Front View In Portofino Tower 5…Best Location Of All 5 Towers!

Amazing Gulf Front View In Portofino Tower 5…Best Location Of All 5 Towers! Our condo overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with unobstructed views of gorgeous sunsets. Enjoy the spaciousness of a 3BR with huge floor plan and extra large balcony with amazing vistas of the sunrise looking east, the gulf/ocean looking south, and Santa Rosa Island looking west! Even with one BR being locked out for owners private use, our condo can still accommodate 6-8 guest with the master BR having a queen and trundle bed and the guest BR having a queen bed. Condo is also furnished with a sofa bed in the great room.

Indulge yourself in paradise! Wake up to the sound of the surf and incredible views of the gulf from bedrooms, living area, and your private balcony! Finish the day with views of the beautiful sunset and watching the dolphins cruise the shoreline.

Portofino Resort is referred to as the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Island for good reason. It is the largest development on the island, and the last one heading east, with eight miles of undeveloped Gulf Island National Seashore after it. This 28-acre complex is a uniquely modern, Mediterranean design, state-of-the-art vacation heaven, with something for every one of all ages. Approximately 64% of the entire complex is dedicated to ecological habitat areas, with only 36% being used for buildings, roads, pools etc.

Our unit faces south and is the closest tower to the beach and the only thing you will see looking out the 60 feet of windows and deck is the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Island. Miles of spectacular breathtaking views of sugar-white sand beaches and seashore…sea, sand, and beautiful sunsets!

Each of the five towers in the Portofino Resort are at least 300ft away from each other, and offer their own large pool and hot tub, along with umbrella tables, chairs, and loungers for sunbathing, as well as, Men's & Women's bathrooms next to the pool.

The $5,000,000, 40,000-square-foot Lifestyle Center has two outdoor infinity pools with two large hot tubs, and an Olympic-size indoor lap pool, as well as a large private indoor hot tub. It has separate men's and women's areas which each feature sauna and steam rooms, as well as private lockers and shower facilities complete with all toiletries. Upstairs there is a state-of-the-art work-out facility with free weights, Cybex weight machines, and True brand treadmills, elliptical machines, and bicycles. There is also a natural juice and snack bar, featuring Starbucks coffee. There is also a special room with personal trainers available for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, spin classes, and many others. Water aerobics are taught in the indoor pool.

There are five, lighted, Rubico Hydro tennis courts on the property. The spa also offers message therapy, facials, and various body treatments.

When you get hungry there is the Coastal Grill (a fine dining restaurant) downstairs, as well as an outdoor grill restaurant by the pools, and an indoor and outdoor bar. Live music is often featured by the pools. The pool area is situated on the bay side, so you can walk out on the dock, or along the shore for eight miles of undeveloped, uninhabited beach, trees, rivers and lakes.

On both the gulf and the bay side at the complex are one- and two-person kayaks, water bikes, sailboats, surf and boogie boards for rent. On the bay side you can rent jet skis, sailboats, pontoon boat, and other types of personal watercraft. Or you can rent a regular bike and ride the paved walk/bike path for miles. It does not get any better than this!

There is a 65-passenger catamaran that can take you to the boardwalk for shopping, or a dolphin, sunset, or Blue Angels cruise. Or, within a short drive from the complex, you can indulge yourself in every kind of activity possible, including Pensacola Naval Museum, which is home to the Blue Angels and boasts one of the largest, indoor, air and sea museums in the world, Indian Temple Mound, a Civil War-era complex called Fort Pickens (which once held Geronimo), the Gulfarium, a zoo, Five Flags Motor Speedway with miniature Indy Cars for rental, the Seville Quarter with various live music venues, cinemas, horseback riding, shopping, endless antique stores and restaurants, fishing (shore, dock, and charters), miniature golf, motor cycle rental, electric funny car rental, jet ski rental, etc.

The condominium unit is equipped with everything you need to make this home for your stay. Again, this a spacious 3 bedroom unit with all the extra floor space and huge rap-around balcony but is rented as is a two-bedroom due to owners keeping one bedroom for private use. Our luxurious condo is furnished with two-and-one-half bath unit, with a queen-size bed, as well as, a trundle bed in the 2nd master suite, two separate closets and Its own full private bath. The second bedroom features a queen bed and its own private full bath as well. Each bedroom and the salon has a direct view of the ocean, and a door to the 60 foot balcony, which has a table with seating for 8, 2 captain chairs, a stainless steel electric grill, and a glass rail to allow un-obstructed viewing of the ocean and beach.

The main living area features a full cozy soft leather sofa bed/couch with matching love sofa, recliner chair and a ottoman. There is a DVD player, a flat screen smart TV and music system in the main living area, and each bedroom has its own TV with DVD player.

We really enjoyed our stay. When not on the beach, I loved sinking into the comfiest couch and looking out at the view.

Awesome condo!    May 07, 2019

The condo is beautiful. The views are incredible. Jack was very helpful and accommodating. We were extremely happy with staying in this condo. We loved that it’s a three bedroom rented as a two bedroom to have the “extra” square footage for the living room makes a huge difference. So comfortable and so spacious. Hope to be back soon!

Wonderful views in almost every room of this condo. It's very nice to have such a wonderful view while cooking in the kitchen. The Kitchen, by the way, has been well supplied with just about everything one would need to prepare a nice meal. This was a great condo with a great location for any families vacation.

The condo was amazing! Jack was very responsive to all of my questions. He goes above and beyond to ensure you are 100% satisfied!

Thanks, Jack!

Great Views!    Jun 15, 2018

You cannot beat the views from the balcony. Just as described, you get a view of everything here. The condo was clean and well maintained. It has everything you will need in the kitchen. The owner was very easy to work with. He even contacted me after check-in to make sure everything went okay. Check-in at the front desk was quick and easy. Assuming the owner continues to do this, you are getting a deal with a three bedroom, rented as a two (with the master locked off); you get the bigger unit and bigger balcony!
