Villa Portofino is a beautiful planned community of 721 detached homes nestled in the Tierrasanta "Island in the Hills." Its mature trees, lawns, elegant landscaping, and six-acre park make it a very special place. This wooded setting is enhanced by amenities that include a clubhouse, pool, playground, and tennis, pickleball, and basketball courts.
Schools, shopping, restaurants, and a number of professional offices are within walking distance; airports and downtown San Diego are minutes away; other areas of the County can be easily reached via nearby highway connections.
While historians tell us that Villa Portofino was once voted "the best place in San Diego to raise kids," it is also a very diverse community, with residents of all ages and backgrounds.
Like most planned communities in California, Villa Portofino is managed by an association of its members, which in turn is represented by a board of nine directors. Directors are elected at the annual meeting, when three seats become vacant in regular rotation. In addition, the Board has committees of volunteer members who look into different aspects of community life and make recommendations. A full-time on-site manager also reports to the Board and supervises the Office, where members and residents can stop by with their questions. The work of the Association is governed by a set of documents, including CC&Rs, Bylaws, General Rules, and Architectural Rules.
