Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fully equipped with all of the essentials and more. The owner was easy to work with and always responded promptly. The layout of the actual condo makes everyone feel more spread out and not crowding each other out. It was wonderfully decorated and the balcony view was amazing. The actual property, itself has been properly maintained. There are so many pool options. Even one of the days, we had one of the pools to ourselves. This is unheard of at most places, especially in July. I could go on and on about the pros. Overall, I would definitely recommend this condo and can't wait to return.

Wonderful vacation condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Sanctuary at Redfish. Bob was always quick to respond with our questions on his property prior to renting and also throughout our stay. We really did enjoy the conveniences of the cabana by the pool. While we were there, they installed brand new grills, so that was a plus! We were happy to have the high ceiling, covered parking garage because we were able to have our cars parked there and still have the toppers on with no issues. Captain Bob and Kristina were most helpful shuttling us to the beach with not much of a wait during this August week. Kristina even allowed my daughter to use her water hose at the dock to rinse down her kayak each day. Thank You!!

We did have air-conditioning issues in the unit we rented toward the later part of the week and it made it uncomfortable at night sleeping and especially when we were packing up to leave. Bob said they needed to add freon to the system. The condo has Wifi but it certainly could use a boost as it was sluggish.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay. Thank you!

We have replaced the unit and everything is cool. Also, Media Com has been out to upgrade everyone's' internet connectivity. Thanks for the review and next time you stay with us the Cabana is "on the house."

Fantastic Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Sanctuary at Redfish for our annual 4th of July family vacation. The condo was spacious and well stocked. The kids (10 and 8) LOVED the bunk room. It was their 'kid cave"! We had a great time at the pools and the beach! The pool cabana was AMAZING! We were able to keeps snacks, drinks, sunscreen, etc. in the cabana so we didn't have to pack for the beach/pool each day! The condo is super close to our favorite treat spot...Blue Mountain Beach Creamery! As always, our week ended way too fast! We can't wait until our next trip to GrandBob's condo at Sanctuary at Redfish!

Once again, the property was clean and well-maintained throughout our stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was the sixth year in a row we have stayed on 30A, and the fifth time we have spent our time at Sanctuary at Redfish. The resort, the area, and the owners of the units at Redfish keep us coming back. We have worked with Mr. Stanley for a past stay, and I must say it was a pleasant, pain-free process working with him again. His communication about our rental is prompt and the unit is gorgeous. Since our last stay, we noticed and enjoyed several improvements to the condo which enhanced our time there. Our children enjoy the 'kids' room, and the master and guest suites were quite comfortable. The staff (Bob and Chris) who you get to interact with every day couldn't be more pleasant and I have always been impressed and grateful for the patience and kindness they show all of the kids they come in contact with. And this year, we also made use of Mr. Stanley's pool-side cabana, which was more of a convenience than I thought it would be--your own personal restroom, a place for kids to take a break from the sun, and cool drinks were always available mere steps away from the spacious pools.

More than any of our other previous stays, the condo/beach was more crowded than usual--which I think has a lot to do with the word getting out throughout the southeast/Midwest about this fantastic resort. In no way is the beach overcrowded, but it is clear more and more people are flocking to the 30A area to enjoy time away from the grind. Very likely, we'll find ourselves looking to return again next summer! Thanks for working with us again, Bob--a memorable time for us again!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Sanctuary at Redfish for our family vacation. Mr. Stanley's condo is beautiful and we were very surprised by how spacious it was and had all the amenities you needed. We traveled with 7 people ( included 2 teenagers and a 10 year old) and it was perfect!! Our morning routine was spent on the balcony drinking our morning coffee and looking at the amazing view! The grounds at Redfish are immaculate. The cabana is a must, perfect for our family! Captain Bob was a pleasure to chat with on our daily boat rides to the beach!! Overall, we had wonderful and relaxing time and we will definetley be back!!

This is the best kept secret on 30A---period. This resort is incredible and we had an amazing time with our family. The condo is very well stocked and furnished and the view across the resort style pool, over the lake, and to the ocean was truly one of a kind. We enjoyed the pontoon boat rides daily to the beach, and also had fun taking a canoe over on a couple occasions. Having the Pool Cabana was awesome. GrandBob was great to deal with and called to check in on us the first day of our stay. Can't wait to go back.
