VOTED TOP 10 BEACH DESTINATION FOR 2011 by Yahoo! Travel and Top Region for 2013 by Lonely Planet

Begin with unspoiled, sugar-white sand beaches. Add brilliant, warm emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Stir in a pristine lake (Big Red Fish Lake) perfect for fishing and kayaking. Combine all ingredients in a spectacular, resort-styled complex with unrivaled amenities. Finish with a breath-taking environment that delivers spectacular views, access and the perfect setting to relax and unwind.

Welcome to Sanctuary by the Sea! A magnificent resort located on picturesque HWY 30a, this exclusive gated community has over 650 feet of private frontage on the Gulf of Mexico and is nestled by Big Redfish Lake (a rare coastal dune lake) and a marvelous nature preserve. Only 82 condominium residences are uniquely positioned on 23 secluded acres providing a level of serenity and privacy unequaled anywhere on the Florida coast. Sanctuary by the Sea fronts the Gulf of Mexico’s most beautiful stretch of gleaming white sand, edged by golden sea oats and clear emerald waters. You can also fish, kayak or canoe in the cool, fresh waters of Big Redfish Lake.

Protected by water on two sides and by the gated Bannerman Estates on the east, Sanctuary by the Sea is truly a nature sanctuary, with nearly two-thirds of its 23 acres preserved for the private enjoyment of those who have the privilege of vacationing here. Sanctuary by the Sea provides every amenity you would expect of an exclusive, gated Gulf Front development. Three pools with a large fountain, stunning waterfalls, two expansive pool decks and two outdoor fire pits overlooking the sparkling pools. This complex offers walking trails on breathtaking terrain and magnificent landscaping throughout the property.

Do not confuse this property with Sanctuary at Redfish -- they are two separate properties! Redfish is not located on the beach (you have to take a boat to get to the beach or walk very far), nor can the people at Redfish use Sanctuary's private beach, pools or facilities.

The health club is outfitted with state-of-the-art fitness equipment. In addition, there is a professional theater room, PlayStation area with 4 gaming chairs, and a virtual golf room that can be reserved through on-site management or roving security officers. Concealed underground parking and every convenience is located nearby.

This is not your typical rental unit -- we consider it our home and you as our guests. Sanctuary by the Sea is a quiet residential community, and provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of an over-crowded Destin.

The 2,240 square foot unit has luxurious appointments including:

•Stone Travertine Flooring in Living Room, Kitchen, Bathrooms and Foyer

•Ceiling Heights of Ten Feet with Eight Foot Door Heights

•Viking Appliances in Kitchen Featuring Gas-Fired Range and Adjacent Pot Filler Faucet

•Gas Fireplace

•Granite Counter Tops and Backsplashes in Kitchen & Bathrooms

•Custom Glazed Cabinets in Kitchen & Bathroom

•Great Rooms and Master Bedrooms Featuring Panoramic Gulf and Lake Views

•Separate Wet Bar with under counter Ice Maker and Wine Refrigerator

•Spacious Walk in Master Bedroom Closet

•Whirlpool Bathtub in Master Bedroom

•400 sf Private Balcony, Featuring Rough Cut Stone Flooring and Gulf and Lake Views

•Flat Panel TVs with Cable in Living Room and Bedrooms.

•Health Club Including State of the Art Fitness Equipment

•Advanced Virtual Golf, Theater Room and PlayStation area, available when reserved through on-site management or roving security.

•Stunning Waterfalls

•Three Large Pools and Two Whirlpool Spas Located in Two Separate Landscaped Areas

•Two Outdoor Gas Fire Pits, and Four Outdoor Gas Grills

•Spectacular Gulf and Lake Views

•Direct Access To Gulf Beach and Fresh Water Big Redfish Lake

•Two beach chairs and umbrella provided (Mar. - Oct.); other beach service available (Yolo boards, kayaks, boogie boards, etc.)

The Area

--------

Located virtually half way between Destin (20 miles) and Panama City (25 miles), and just West of Seaside (2 miles), the location is ideal. Attractions within 5 miles include the Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club, Grayton Beach State Park, and many local seafood and other restaurants. Drive a short distance to either Destin or Panama City Beach and enjoy great shopping and restaurants, as well as fishing charters, dolphin tours, and amusement parks. Silver Sands Outlet Mall, located in Sandestin, is only 17 miles away. The new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, serviced by Southwest and others, is about 30 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Shauna from Texas writes: "We absolutely LOVED the condo and completely enjoyed our stay! Our friends ended up in the condo right above us so it was super convenient to go back and forth via the stairs. We all love to cook and your unit had EVERYTHING we needed. We felt right at home! Also, the decor is fabulous and exactly my taste. Everything in there could have been in our house! Again, we felt right at home!"

Annual 30A beach trip

  • 5 of 5
This is my second time staying at Sanctuary by the Sea and first time staying in Lisa's condo. It is well-maintained and very clean, kitchen is well-stocked, beds and furniture very comfortable and the unit is extremely spacious. I loved sitting on the balcony on the comfy sofa and chairs while drinking coffee amd looking out at the ocean. Also
Spent time watching the sunset in the evenings with a glass of wine. Pools, firepit and gas grills at the compex are a plus too. Many great restaurants nearby and fabulous shopping.

Plenty of room for a family of 8!

  • 5 of 5
We were impressed with how large and open the unit was. There was plenty of space for all of us...ranging in age from 12 months to 70 years! The unit was well stocked with movies for those rainy days. We were also very appreciative of all the spices/ oil/ storage containers in the kitchen.
It was convenient to stay on the first floor. There were no steps or elevators to navigate to get to beach/ pool level. The beaches were awesome. There were great towns nearby to explore and the property is equidistant between destin to panama city. Lisa was genuinely attentive and was great to work with.

Relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We took a week long family vacation here and loved it! The condo is more than comfortable. The kitchen was better than expected as it was well stocked with pots, pans, blenders, etc! And the appliances were wonderful! We are a family that likes to stay in and cook some while on vacation and this place made that very pleasurable. The beach was beautiful and the pools were nice. It was nice having chairs already set up for us - just one less thing to have to carry! We will definitley be back!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this condo and our stay at SBS! The condo was very clean and well stocked with the essential items we would need! The condo was well decorated with plenty of room for us to spread out! Lisa, the owner, was fabulous to work with...so nice! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great location with a great beach! We will be back next year for sure!

Awesome condo! Owner was super helpful and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5
We had a 10 year college reunion and this was a great place. Enough beds and baths to accommodate 8 adults but I can also see us going back with our family. Pool was really nice but the beach was even better. So nice that the condo came with 2 beach chairs and umbrella already set up for us. The owners were very helpful and even let us get in a little earlier than we anticipated.

This condo is fantastic. Our family had a blast last week, and we will definitely be back. Sanctuary by the Sea is the perfect location (7 minutes to Seaside) and the beach is beautiful and not crowded. Easy walk to beach. Loved the multiple pool option. Condo is wonderful, great location within bldg and our children loved bunk room. Highly recommend. Lisa is great to work with.
