Perfect views of the beach, pool and sunset! We plan to be back soon!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is absolutely perfectly placed at Portofino. This was our first time staying - and would definitely return to the unit. Great views of the pool, ocean and sunset - and perfect location in the tower. The unit was well maintained - and loved having access to the umbrella for the beach. The kitchen was amply stocked - we cooked a lot. Overall we couldn't have asked for more!

Relaxing, quiet & beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We should have rented a 3 bedroom unit, other than that we had a wonderful time. Sunsets & the view were breathtaking, if you want to see sunrise you need to be on the otherside of the tower. This unit has a great umbrella and a couple chairs to carry to the beach, next time we will bring a cart for haulig all our stuff tho, we're getting too old to carry all that and wrangle grandbabies to boot! The beach itself was very clean & kid friendly shore. Be aware thy are enforcing the "Leave nothing behind" rule, we made the mistake of leaving 2 chairs & our nice umbrella out overnight & they had apparently become "Property of Escambia county" by mornig. Beds were SO comfortable we all commented that we slepy like babies! Son-in-law is a gourmet cook & dull knives are his pet peeve so he purchased a sharp knife to use while there, we find most condos knives are not sharp, maybe a safety issue? Thank you Bud & Gerard for sharing your beautiful home away from home with us, we felt right at home with your New Orleans art work, our nephew actually worked for Mr George Rodrique & still sells his paintings :) Don & Debra Grover, Lafayette Louisiana

Owner's Response: I am happy that you enjoyed,,,Please let me know what it would have taken to receive the 5 star rating from you,,, as I tried to make sure you were perfectly accommodated EVEN letting you arrive the previous night at no extra charge......(as the unit was vacant ).... I certainly hope it wasnt because of a dull knife,as they WILL be replaced,,,,,Thanks again Bud Picou
