Overview

South Walton Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Never be bored at the beach again! After enjoying the sun and surf of the most beautiful beach in the world (Blue Mountain Beach), relax on the condo's lanai in the peaceful setting of the lush vegetation that surrounds this most private of beach resorts, vacationing in a beautifully decorated 1958 sq.ft. condo, built in 2006. Early in the morning or during the cool of evening, grab one of the complimentary canoes or kayaks that are docked beside the Dune lake to fish, simply float, or paddle to the sugary sands of the beach and ocean. For the less adventurous, call 'Captain Bob' for complimentary transport on Sanctuary's pontoon boat across the lake (March 1-October 31, 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week & 9am to 7pm April 1-Sept 30). As you and your family choose to go & come from the beach, 'Captain Bob' is on site and just a phone call away. Once at the beach, your 2 complimentary chairs and umbrella ( free!) are set up just for you! (You may rent more umbrellas and chairs at beachside, if needed. The rate is $10. per day for each extra chair and $40. per day for 1 umbrella and 2 chairs .) You may also elect to bring your own extra beach chairs if 2 will not suffice. As the day draws to a close, gather by the pools to swim, relax in one of two jacuzzis, and grill your favorite dinner on one of several gas grills, against the backdrop of many waterfalls spilling into the four pools (one is heated & one is a large 'zero-entry' pool). After a relaxing pool-side meal, swim until the chill of evening draws you to the circular, pool-side stone bench surrounding the gas-powered fire pit. When the serenity of this peaceful place has rejuvenated you, spend days browsing the many quaint shops, famous restaurants, and fully stocked antique & consignment warehouses nearby. For the 'serious shoppers', Destin Commons and the Sandestin Outlet Mall is just a short drive away. For those who avoid shopping-- sidewalks, private boardwalks, and sandy beaches are great 'walking trails'. For the serious athlete, a state of the art work out and exercise room is on site. For 'workaholics', a business center is just steps away. This uncrowded 30A area along one of the most famous beaches in the world epitomizes the union of 'Love of Luxury' and 'Love of Nature's Beauty'. Once you stay here, you will never want to vacation anywhere else!

About Sheila

I work in the family business, but find my greatest joy spending time with my grandchildren at one of my two vacation homes--one on the Georgia Coast, and this one on the Florida Gulf. What a life!

Sheila purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sheila chose South Walton

My family and I have recently fallen in love with the picturesque turquoise-blue waters of the Gulf and its sugary white sand. No other beach can compare!

What makes this condo unique

Walking the beach with family and friends, fishing and kayaking with my grandchildren, browsing the many cute shops, eating at a variety of restaurants, and, of course, late night visits with my grandchildren around the pool-side firepit (I really learn a lot!)

Wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Sanctuary at Redfish. The first condo we rented had a better view which included the pool, but this unit was overall a nicer place to stay. It is beautifully furnished! Several times we saw deer just down from our balcony, grazing in the area between the condos and the lake. The condo is in wonderful condition, and the kitchen is amazing. Everything was very clean. One teeny tiny little complaint is that it needs a better TV in the living room. The one that's there now distorts the picture on the sides. Overall, I would highly recommend this unit.

If you haven't been here before, the pool is actually one giant pool consisting of four different pools. If a nice pool is important to you, this is an excellent choice. To get to the beach, you take a free pontoon boat ride from the pool area across the lake over to the beach, which is beautiful and secluded. The water is a gorgeous turquoise blue, and the sand is soft and white. If you are adventurous, which we were, you can kayak or take a rowboat to the beach and back. If you are into biking, you can bike for miles in either direction, either on the paved greenway beside 30A or on the gorgeous single track trail that runs between 30A and Hwy 98.

This is a lovely place to stay, and I'm sure we will be back again in the future. This stretch of 30A is not nearly as crowded as Destin, Seaside, or Panama City Beach, and is our favorite part of the US.

Great stay, really enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during our youngest daughter's last high school spring break. She brought a friend and our sister and her family stayed across the street at Redfish Village. Sheila's condo was great, very spacious, everything worked, the kitchen has the basics if you like to cook which we did. Used the gas grills, they worked well, the pool area is very nicely done and everything was very clean and well maintained. Only some of the owners rent their condo's so while we thought spring break would be packed, it wasn't at all. We were worried the trip to the beach would be a hassle but it really wasn't. Capt. Bob is great, super friendly and very helpful. We used the kayak's and canoe's which was fun. Never got on the paddle board or used the fire pit, next time.

The balcony is very large with lots of seating, loved it. The lake and surrounding property is beautiful as is our favorite beach. We don't like high rises like in Destin and Panama City Beach, way too crowded for us. This area is nothing like that, it is very laid back and quiet yet shopping and restaurants are very close by. We have been to this area in excess of 30 times and this one ranks way up there. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with, a genuinely nice lady who really wants you to enjoy your stay which we did. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us Sheila, we had a great time.

A Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was an extremely enjoyable vacation. The condo was incredible. It was just as the owner had advertised. Clean, organized and everything worked properly. The views of the gulf and the association property were awesome. We had beach and pool access whenever we wanted. The facility was not crowded. It felt more like a private residence. The area was safe and secluded, but there were lots of options within a few minutes drive if you wanted to stay connected with the rest of the world. Lots of white sand and surf, great restaurants, and some great shopping.

I can not say enough nice things about the owner. She was responsive to our communications and was very helpful before and during our stay. It is rare these days that you have that level of service in these situations. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for spring break. Several of our friends stayed in condos in the same complex. This one was great and had everything we could need. We appreciated having amenities when we arrived (soap, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, etc) so we did not have to immediately go to the store like some of our friends did. The unit was close to the elevator so I was concerned it may be noisy - but not at all. It was actually a benefit to be able to bring groceries up and be right at the door. The beds were comfortable and the unit was roomy. We would definitely go back. The kids enjoyed the ocean, the boat rides, and the lake.
