About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Game Rm, 4.5 Baths

The height of luxury living surrounded by the ultimate in natural beauty! Come indulge yourself in this exquisitely-decorated one-of-a-kind condo and you will be spoiled forever. Every condo in Sanctuary By The Sea has Viking appliances, high ceilings, granite counter tops, and beautiful flooring, but this one has undergone an unbelievable transformation with a long list of custom upgrades, elevating it above all others.

Situated on the third and fourth floors (top two floors) of Sanctuary, this spacious two-story condo has over 3100 square feet of living space to relax in. The entire condo is floored in travertine and rugs and is magnificently-appointed with beautiful antique-reproduction solid wood furniture. The living and dining area has custom, hand-crafted, raised tiling on the walls, and beautiful granite shelving that is color-coordinated with the kitchen counter tops. Large multi-level crown molding runs throughout in every room and newly-installed custom lighting provides practical illumination with a dramatic effect.

You and your guests will have not just one, but three luxurious Master King Suites to choose from -- two downstairs and one upstairs. Each elegantly-decorated suite has a large 46' flat panel TV with deluxe sound, a DVD player with Blu-ray capability, custom-designed closets with electronic safes for valuables, and a lavish travertine bathroom with granite-topped double vanities.

The kids will love the bunkroom 'suite'. It features 3 comfortable bunk beds with solid wood frames, travertine flooring, private full bath with a granite-topped double vanity, a 46' widescreen flat panel TV and a state-of-the-art Sony Playstation 3 video game console that also plays Blu-ray DVD's. Take one look and you'll want to be a kid again!

The combination living and dining area can easily seat everyone for in-room dining with the eat-in bar and a large dining table. After the meal, it offers seating for all of those who wish to relax, watch entertainment from the Direct TV satellite system on the the huge 55' flat panel TV, or just gaze out at the Gulf or the large coastal dune lake. Befitting of the incredible view of the best nature has to offer, the dining table and coffee table are both handcrafted of unfinished, solid reclaimed pine timbers from 100-year-old buildings in Great Britain.

The practical side of what makes a vacation worry-free has not been overlooked either. There is no need to worry about taking a lukewarm bath or shower because the hot water capacity has been doubled to 200 gallons and there are two sinks for every bedroom bath. The large laundry room has two complete sets of front loading washers and dryers, perfect for large groups or multiple families.

Sanctuary By The Sea has 23 acres of beautiful nature overlooking a beautiful coastal dune lake. Only a few places in the world are fortunate enough have favorable conditions for these lakes to form, and they provide a unique environment for a diverse collection of wildlife normally in separate fresh water or salt water ecosystems. Enjoy the scenic views, because this condo overlooks the the Gulf, the beach, and the coastal dune lake. In the late afternoon, relax on either of the huge balconies and watch the sun set over the best that nature has to offer.

This world-class development also offers some of the best man-made comforts -- two pool areas (east and west) with 3 large pools (the largest is a zero-entry), whirlpool spas, outdoor gas fire pits, gas grilling areas, owners' club with fitness center, family theater, meeting facilities, magnificent landscaping throughout the property, and easy access to 650 feet of beautiful private beach.

Sanctuary by the Sea 3121 is a treasure. Our accommodations were beyond expectation. Its features include beautifully decorated rooms, a well stocked kitchen and a view of Redfish Lake and The Gulf that is incredibly beautiful and unique.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well appointed, and spacious condo. This was our third stay at Sanctuary, but the first time in 3121. Ray has seen to every detail. The kitchen was by far the best stocked for actually preparing meals for multi families. Our group included my husband and myself, two adult children/spouses, and four grandchildren. We never felt cramped or on top of each other. The three master suites were perfect for us as everyone had their own space and bathrooms. The grandkids just loved the bunk room. The only minor hitch was one of the TV remotes didn't work and the play station remotes were not working properly. Our grandkids survived however. Ha! Wonderful week!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our condo and for the five star rating. Also, thank you for you patience and help with the remote control and game controls. I wish Mediacom could have come out to replace the remote right away. I am still waiting for that by the way. On the controllers, I believe I have figured out that because we have three game consoles and three sets of four controllers, if they get moved around they have to be resynchronized, at least sometimes. I also replaced the charging station in the bunkroom as only one port appeared to be working. Hopefully those issues are resolved. Thank you again for choosing our condo and I am so glad you enjoyed it!

Incredible property, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Sanctuary by the Sea with another family, 4 adults and 6 kids. This is truly one of the most magnificent, immaculate, well-stocked, and well-taken care of properties we have ever rented! Ray, the owner, was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end - quick to respond to all questions, well-organized, attentive to details, friendly, and so committed to making sure our stay was perfect...and it was! The unit was stocked with beautiful bed linens, towels, and every kitchen utensil imaginable. It is very spacious and beautifully furnished, and the view from the patios is stunning, especially the sunset. We can't wait to rent this property again!!
