Overview

Santa Rosa Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 2nd Floor Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This professionally furnished unit is on the second floor with views of The Gulf of Mexico and Big Redfish Lake. The newly furnished balcony has 'bar height' chairs and table for better views while dining or snacking and the balcony is completely private with access from the Living Room & Master Bedroom. The Gulf & Dune Lake can be seen from the Balcony, Living Room & Master Bedroom. The two 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. All bedrooms have their own private bathrooms, ceiling fans, cableboxes, HDTVs and DVR disc players for movies. The living-room & master bedroom have new dark wooden floors and the master bath has a large jet tub & separate marble shower. The living room has two ceiling fans and a 55” adjustable flat screen HDTV w/cablebox, DVD & a Blu-Ray player with surround sound. 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 programs) 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 they 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 pool. 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). 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 5 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.

Keywords: Luxury Condo, Waterfront Views, Private Beach with Unbrella and Chairs provided, Super Multi-Swimming Pools/Hot Tubs Complex, Gated Community, Excellent Amenities, Scenic Hwy. 30A.

About Michael Bulger - Owner, Donna Shepherd - Manager

I moved here from Atlanta, Ga. in 2010, although I was born in Tampa, Florida. I'm an Engineering consultant & I do a lot of work out of the 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 22) just graduated from Florida State University and is working and living in San-Destin. My older son, Nicholas (age 29) currently lives with me on the bay and works in Destin.

Michael Bulger - Owner, Donna Shepherd - Manager purchased this condo in 2010

Why Michael Bulger - Owner, Donna Shepherd - Manager chose South Walton

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.

Absolutely wonderful vacation and condo!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything expected and more. Beautiful and very clean. The ocean and lake view was beautiful from the balcony day and night. This condo is in a good central location on the property and was easy to get to the pool. All of the beds were comfortable and linens were very nice and greatly appreciated. The only complaint I have is with how poorly the kitchen was equipped. I struggled to even cook breakfast with the less than acceptable cookware and utensils. However, we love this condo and will certainly be returning soon. I'll just bring a few of my own cooking necessities from home.

Absolutely LOVE the place

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay. The condo is super clean, looks just like the pictures! All the beds are super comfortable, the bathrooms real clean and spacious. The balcony has the most amazing views of the lake and the beach. We even got to see a couple of deer which was of a special meaning to our family since the passing of my dad. The pools are always at the perfect temperatures and big. The grilling area is clean and fun to share with other vacationers. Kristina and Capitan Bob from the shuttle are super friendly and made us feel like they've known us for a long time. We also got to enjoy the canoes and kayaks, especially my 8 year old and my 15 year old nephew, they loved taking them to and from the beach. Donna was very helpful thru the whole process and prompt in responding to my questions. Plenty of things to do near by. If I could I would give it a 10 star rating!!! I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family and would probably will rent again on our next vacation to Santa Rosa Beach!!

One of our best family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We had one of our best family vacations this month as we stayed in this beautiful condo! Michael and Donna were very attentive throughout the whole process of renting. The setting is, of course, fabulous on the incredible 30a beaches. What we didn't realize was how peaceful and quiet this particular condo area would be. We basically had one of the pools to ourselves at any given time during the day (even during peak summer). We also didn't realize how entertaining the canoeing and kayaking would be. Something for everyone. The pictures really don't do the condo itself justice... it has very upscale decor with very spacious rooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked. We ate out most every night, but we did decide to use the Weber grills one night because all the grilling tools we needed were in the condo! We weren't too sure at first about the boat ride to the beach, but you will find that it is quite relaxing (and beats carrying your gear, especially on the way back). If you want to walk using the boardwalk, it took us about 10-12 leisurely minutes. Having stayed in the area for the last 25 years, I can highly recommend this condo. Lord-willing, we will be renting this condo again next summer (and for many years to come)!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a totally relaxing week at Michaels condo. We have stayed at many places in this area but out of all them this was the nicest, and most certainly the cleanest. Working with Donna was great, she's wonderful to work with. We will definitely be returning for another trip.
