About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

My husband and I love the experience of being on 30A. It is our sanctuary and home away from home. The incredible views or Redfish lake and Gulf of Mexico are like no other on 30A. The experience to have a private boat captain take you by pontoon boat from the pool across the lake to your own private beach with a beach service including 2 chairs and an umbrella. There are also 2 beach chairs and an umbrella in the condo for your use or you can rent 2 additional chairs and an umbrella for $30 a day through the beach service. The boat runs from 9am to 5pm in the Spring and Fall and 9am to 7pm in the summer through September

This professionally decorated 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath condominium is one of the few extended or larger three bedroom units in the 64 condominium complex that share the 14 acres nestled along Big Redfish Lake and the Gulf.

Granite countertops in all bathrooms and kitchen, upgraded kitchen appliances, crown molding, and gas fire place, this beautiful condo offers to many first class luxuries to mention. Relax by the large pool area and listen to the soothing waterfalls that lead to the attached separate individual smaller pool areas which are landscaped with flowing palms and different variations of foliage.

The amenities include lakeside dock, exercise room, deeded beach access, high speed internet, walking trails, and gated community. To get to the beach, it is a five to ten minute bike ride or take a relaxing stroll. If you would like a more unique trip, take a ride on the pontoon boat or kayak to cross the lake and be on your own private beach. Enjoy the beauty of nature and so much more at the Sanctuary at Redfish!

Why Mary Burch chose South Walton

We love Blue Mountain beach the most on the 16 mile stretch of 30 A beaches. It is perfect location to all our favorite restaurants and entertainments spots. Sanctuary at Redfish is minutes from Grayton Beach, Water Color and Seaside. 20 minutes from Rosemary beach and San Destin.

What makes this condo unique

My husband and I love spending mornings by the pool and then when the breeze picks up go to the beach. Then you are ready for early evening walk around Seaside and watch sunset at Bud and Alleys. Stand up paddle surfing is awesome on Redfish lake. And bass fishing is good early morning.

This place is amazing!! Not only is the condo beautifully decorated and will kept, it has everything you could every need during your stay. ALL the comforts of home!! We traveled with an almost 2 year and 9 year old twins and they didn't skip a beat. To me that's huge. After spending the day at the beach or pool (s) it was the prefect place to retreat. Thank you for sharing it with us. We'll be back for sure!!

Spacious, beautiful and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Redfish. It was the perfect spot for our family of six. The view from the condo balcony overlooks the swimming pools, lake and the beach beyond just like the photo shows - it was a lovely place to sit and relax with coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at the end of the day. Our family loved the large cozy couch that fit us all for movie nights and the incredibly well stocked kitchen that had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed grilling out poolside while the kids swam and the family-friendly atmosphere of the Redfish grounds. It was also nice for the older members of our family to have the pontoon boat that provided curb service delivery to the beach while our kids enjoyed taking the canoes and kayaks. Mary, the owner, was delightful and easy to work with. It was a great vacation and we hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed our condo and sanctuary at redfish. I agree the patio is my favorite place for coffee or wine. I also love to sit out there during a thunderstorm or look at the stars at night. The pontoon boat is a very unique easy way to get to the beach and a lot of fun. I hope you and your family will come again

Wonderful stay at Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

The condo was much nicer than we expected! Lots of space for the 5 of us and the kitchen was amazing with all of the items you would expect in your home. We only ate dinner out a couple of times because everything we needed to cook with was already here. The complex itself is very well maintained and quiet. Having multiple pools helped it seem less crowded. We enjoyed our pontoon trips across the lake and even used the canoes on a few occasions.

The 30A experience was awesome with all of the shops/dining options and activities in the area. Booking with Mary was a breeze and she made sure everything was in order when we arrived. Looking forward to our next visit!

Another amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd time back to Sanctuary at Redfish! The privacy, the quietness and the coziness ONCE AGAIN was perfect! The rain and wind was not in our plans but still an amazing getaway! Because of the weather, we spent more downtime time relaxing but being together more than usual and that is what was actually needed. Good old family time at a great and comfy place! Look forward to our next trip back! Thank you again for such a beautiful place to stay!

Oh and THANK YOU for returning our little one's teddy! Everyone is happy once again! :)

Great Thanksgiving Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at the Sanctuary at Redfish. The owner was very communicative prior to our arrival with all the information we needed.

Being Thanksgiving and having several cooks in our family, we were pleased to find the kitchen well equipped to handle all that we wanted to prepare for our holiday feast.

Beds were comfortable and the layout of the space in general was very accommodating for our 7 member family. Having several pools and hot tubs was a great amenity for the kids (and the adults) as well as the canoes and kayaks to explore the lake that also made hauling our gear to the beach very easy and fun.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to be with family and have the best of great accommodations and amenities.

Beautiful, Clean Condo and Complex

  • 5 of 5

This was my families first time staying at Sanctuary at Redfish, and we had a great week. The condo is beautiful, spacious, and clean. Kitchen has everything you need to cook and the view from the patio is one of the best in the complex. Pools are fantastic and the grilling area was great for burgers and steaks. Bob and Christina were a pleasure to ride on the boat with, but we were a little disappointed it stopped running at 5:00 pm this time of year. The canoes were also a nice little alternative when getting to the beach. Having the chairs and umbrellas already set up was huge help when trying to get kids our there. We ate at Fat Daddys pizza, Louis Louis, and Stinkys while there. All were great but I think Stinky's was our favorite. Blue Mountain Creamery was also a nice treat. As I said before, it was a great week and we can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give my condo and sanctuary at redfish a review. It's a very unique property where else can you canoe or take a fun short pontoon boat ride to the beach. I need to go back to stinkys fish camp everyone says it's great and has entertainment. Fat daddy's is my favorite pizza. I hope you will come again
