A perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about Sanctuary by the Sea. It is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. The grounds and building are so well taken care of. All of the staff and security were very friendly. We loved the security. There was even security on the beach, that was an added plus.

It was a very private resort. It seems to have it's own private beach away from everything else. The condo it's self was beautiful and very clean. It was very comfortable and roomy. It had a view of the beach and Redfish lake from the balcony. It was in a perfect location. We could watch the sunset every evening as we were having dinner. We definitely will be going back in the future.

Amazing condo with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience was five stars. The condo is modern, clean, spacious, has great decor and an amazing view. The place is fully equipped with top of the line appliances and all the kitchen accessories you need for staying in and cooking on the nights you don't feel like venturing out. The condo also has a washer/dryer which is convenient for drying towels after going to the pool. The owner of the condo was easy to work with and had an extremely quick response time.

The location is great - it is close to everything but doesn't have the busy traffic the other beach areas have. The pool areas (yes plural - there are two beautiful pool areas) are well maintained and huge! I also used the fitness room while I was there when it was cold one day which was a great alternative to exercising outside.

I would definitely recommend this condo to others.

Best Condos, Best Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is my third time at Sanctuary and this was the best unit we’ve been in. We go here because it has three pools and complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas and it is not crowded. It is more like a resort than typical beach condos. The unit and the property is nice and clean, well-maintained and well-equipped. It was a little inconvenient to have to bring beach towels but I can understand why. Liked having the ice maker and wine refrigerator. The beach, of course, is the best in Florida. We were initially worried by “sea lice” warnings we saw online but there was no problem. Beach crew had umbrellas and chairs up by 9 each day. We are grandparents, daughter and two teens.

Heaven on Earth Sanctuary by the Sea #2118

  • 5 of 5

All we can say is Wow! We had a wonderful time. There were 4 adults one teenager and 2 children in our group. Everyone had their own space. The Condo was beautifully decorated and efficiently stocked with everything we needed for family meals every evening. The BBQ pits in the pool area were cleaned every day. All the common area is well kept and lovely. We rented a kayak for the week and went out in the lake and ocean. My Grandkids loved Lake Redfish. My son did a little fishing and we spent a lot of time in the beautiful relaxing pool. It was never crowded. We also rented bikes and biked to Seaside. We also used the exercise room overlooking the pool. Everyone was so impressed with everything. We will be back, and will recommend it to friends and family.
