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

We also have a facebook page with more photos and info. Look up Sanctuary Redfish on facebook.

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.

A Great Spring Break at Sanctuary at Redfish Lake!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for the first time the last week of March 2017 in unit 2117. Mary is the owner and found her very helpful and resourceful. The condo was exceptional with a very well stocked kitchen with utensils, etc. The view of the pool area and ocean was beautiful from our balcony. Elevator was right outside our condo for easy access when moving in and out from the undercover garage. Very quiet and never heard any noise from other guests. The pontoon taking to and from the beach was so easy and accessible to ride in. The pontoon drivers were friendly and helpful getting in and out!! We will return--excellent place to stay. Thank you, Mary, for providing a 5 star experience!!!!

This was my children's first beach vacation and it was perfect! Everything from the condo to the weather was amazing. The unit is even more beautiful than the pictures give it credit for. There was more than enough room for all of us. We loved every second of it and will definitely be back!! Thank you Mary for the wonderful memories at your place!! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation.

This is a great beach rental - the unit was exactly as described and in a great location. Beautifully decorated and has everything that you need for a week at the beach - well stocked kitchen, ample linens, convenient to the beach and a beautiful pool facility! Would highly recommend for any family looking to unwind for a few days!

Already looking forward to our stay in 2017!!

  • 5 of 5

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
