Spacious Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6+ adults)
This professionally furnished unit is on the second floor with views of The Gulf of Mexico and Big Redfish Lake. The three bedroom condo sleeps 6 adults and possible 1 child on the leather living room couch (not a fold- out bed). The newly furnished balcony has 'bar height' chairs and table for better views while dining or snacking and the balcony is completely private with views & access from the Living Room & Master Bedroom. The two full length sun lounges have new top of the line cushions for added comfort.
This incredible unit features 10 foot ceilings, granite kitchen & bar counter-tops, updated kitchen appliances, wireless internet and a gas fireplace. The living room/ dining room and all three bedrooms have new hardwood floors installed in January 2017. All bedrooms have their own private bathrooms, ceiling fans, cableboxes, HDTVs and DVR disc players for movies. The master bath has a large jet tub & separate marble walled shower. The living room has two ceiling fans and a 55” adjustable flat screen HDTV w/cablebox, DVD & a Blu-Ray player. The kitchen is fully furnished including small appliances such as a toaster, toaster oven, a blender & 2 coffee makers (drip style & Keurig unit). The cable network has the sports package and a DVR (recordable programing) package for the living room & master bedroom.
Sanctuary at Redfish is situated on 14 beautiful acres that border Big Redfish Lake, an ultra-rare coastal dune lake. These lakes flow in & out of the Gulf & are unique & very rare throughout the world. In the United Stated dune lakes are only found adjacent to our very own Northwest Florida beaches. They are truly a treasure of nature & make this location a one-of-a-kind destination. Sanctuary at Redfish is a gated 64 unit, 3 story complex that does not ‘overwhelm’ the amenities provided, even at peak periods (unlike high rise apartment complexes).
Sanctuary at Redfish has a giant tastefully landscaped pool complex with 4 swimming pools and two hot tubs. The large swimming pool has zero depth entry at the west end. The pool area is fully furnished with tables and chairs and pool side lounges. The three small pools are great for families and small children and help reduce the number of people in the large pool. There are two hot tubs bordering the large swimming pool and the pool complex is beautifully landscaped and lighted at night. At the back of the pool complex just past the Fire-pit are 5 Weber Gas Grills which are excellently maintained.
For beach goers, a shuttle boat service is provided (Shuttle service runs from March 1st through the end of October) from our dock for a quick 5 minute trip across Big Redfish Lake to our private white sands beach on the Gulf (or paddle across the lake to our private beach in one of the common kayaks, canoes or row boat - available when shuttle is running). An umbrella and two wooden beach chairs will be set up daily on the beach for our guests (included in the rate). Alternatively, a short 10 minute walk to a private boardwalk (code provided for gate) also delivers you over the dunes onto the beach - (or back to the condo after an evening beach stroll). Paved and Non-paved bike trails are accessed either in front of the complex or just down the street. Scenic Hwy 30A runs right in front of the complex connecting Blue Mountain Beach with Grayton Beach, Water Color, Seaside and Rosemary Beach resorts to mention a few and the paved bike trails run the length of these towns and more. Bicycle rentals are available close to the complex. Also, a public beach with Lifeguards and public parking is located about 6 blocks from Sanctuary at Redfish (a good place to swim when the Gulf waves get up).
For winter renters; one small pool is heated to 80 F throughout the winter (unless the temperature drops below 50 F and the heater is shut down) and two hot tubs are always running. Shuttle and common boats are not available from Nov. 1st to March 1st.

About Michael Bulger
I was born in Tampa, Fl., grew up in Ft. Worth, Tx and moved here from Atlanta, Ga. in 2010. I'm an Engineering consultant & I do a lot of work out of the country/state. I absolutely love Santa Rosa Beach and the greater 30A area. I live with one of my two sons in a house on nearby Okaloosa Bay. Living on the water is a long standing dream of mine & I go fishing and crabing whenever I am not working. My son Kevin (age 24) just graduated from Florida State University and is working and living in San-Destin. My oldest son, Nicholas (age 31) currently lives with me on the bay and works in Destin.
Michael Bulger purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Michael Bulger chose Santa Rosa Beach
I visited my sister in the 30A, Blue Mountain Beach area for several summers and enjoyed it so much that I decided to move here and buy at Sanctuary at Redfish, a decision I have never regretted. I lived at SAR for 1-1/2 years and still stay in the condo in the winter when it is not rented. I find real peace & serenity living on the lake with the Gulf view and when the surf is strong I can see and hear the breaking waves from the balcony.
What makes this Condo unique
The huge pool area is unique and beautiful with 4 swimming pools and two hot tubs, never over-crowded. We have a wonderful 'very' private beach. Access to restaurants stores and markets. Alternatively, the area is not a concrete jungle but supports parks, biking & hiking trails, brackish lakes, with trees and greenery everywhere. Living over a state sanctuary and dune lake has been relaxing & wonderful.

Perfect vacation spot!
We stayed here for a whole week and it wasn't long enough! The condo was crisp and clean upon our arrival and had everything we needed from pots and pans for home cooked meals to a super soaker jetted tub in the master.
We had plenty of room for everyone and the thing I loved most was no fighting for bathroom space! Each bedroom has it's own full bath, plus a powder room in the common area.
The view from the balcony was breathtaking and so peaceful - it felt like you were so far away but in reality so close to everything.
To say the least, we loved our stay here and will definitely be coming back soon!
Thank you for your review. Note, returning guests receive $100 off of the base price.
Our 8th Spring Break at the Sanctuary. Another great temporary home for the week. First unit where we could see the beach and waves directly from the deck. Great to be able to check the waves first thing in the morning. Big waves all week!
Thank You for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay, I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Santa Rosa Beach
We just spent the week here in Santa Rosa Beach. The condo is immaculate and has so many great features--awesome ocean view, many small kitchen appliances, beautiful decor, close to local restaurants and the franchises and of course there was lots of space for our group.
Michael is very attentive to his renters and that was shown when we had a minor issue with the front door key pad and fridge. He was over within a short time and both issues were looked after.
We had a fabulous week, our first time in the Panhandle and we will definitely be back.
Glad to hear it and thank you again for your review. I hope to hear from you in the future.
Relaxing Stay On 30 A
This property is beautifully furnished and is an ideal location for enjoying a getaway on the panhandle of Florida. The owner, Michael Bulger, was very accommodating and easily accessible to us. Thank you Michael for sharing this unit with us on our holiday vacation.
Wonderful family getaway
We had a wonderful family vacation at Michael's condo. A memorable Thanksgiving week. The condo was clean, comfortable and has one of the best equipped kitchens for a rental that we have had the pleasure of cooking in. Actually prepared a Thanksgiving dinner for six with all the fixin's and plenty of fridge space for the leftovers. The property is in a fantastic location, nestled in the woods on a lake within walking distance to a beautiful beach. We couldn't have wished for more. And by the way, the weather was perfect. Thank You Michael.
Thank you very much for your review, I really appreciate it and hope to have you back soon. Returning clients receive a $100 discount off of the base price.
