Overview

South Walton Condo Rental Photos and Description

World Class Luxury Condo Has 4 Large King Suites with Private Baths

The height of luxury living surrounded by the ultimate in natural beauty! Come indulge yourself in this magnificent, exquisitely-decorated condo and you will be spoiled forever. Enjoy the Viking appliances, high ceilings, granite counter tops, and beautiful travertine flooring along with a long list of custom upgrades that elevates this condo above all others in Sanctuary By The Sea.

Situated on the third floor of Sanctuary By The Sea, this opulent 4000-square-foot condo offers plenty of living space for everyone to relax in. The entire condo is floored in travertine and is magnificently appointed with beautiful antique reproduction furnishings. The spacious living and family room area has seating for 12 and offers a wet bar with handcrafted raised tiling on the walls. 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 4 luxurious Master King Suites to choose from -- two with scenic views to the west and two on the east side that are adjacent to the entry foyer offering convenient access to the outside breezeway. 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 vanities.

Adults and kids will love the combination media and bunk bed room. It features 2 sets of comfortable bunk beds that accommodate 4 guests, travertine flooring, a 46' widescreen flat panel TV, leather theater seating, and a state-of-the-art Sony Playstation 3 video game console that also plays Blu-ray DVD's.

The combination living and family room area 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 (Big Redfish Lake). Befitting of the incredible view of the best nature has to offer, the furnishings include an elegant large, plush, leather sectional sofa, matching leather chair, solid wood high table seating for four, retro industrial-look reproduction coffee table, gas fireplace, and complimentary accessories.

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 in three of the king suite baths. The 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.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic week at the beach. This unit was perfect for 3 adult couples with 3 adult children. Plenty of gathering space and plenty of privacy when needed. Ray was very easy to work with and the home is beautifully appointed. Our 21, 20 and 18 year old "kids" loved the bunk room with the theatre chairs. We cooked in most nights and the well equipped kitchen functioned beautifully. And, of course, the view from the balcony was gorgeous. Thanks for a great week! P.S. We also had the grandparents with us and the elevators made access very easy for them.

Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about this condo! As other reviews have stated, this unit really has it all. We have been visiting the 30A/Destin area for over 15 years and this unit is, by far, the nicest condo we have rented. The pictures posted don't do it justice. It is spacious, has beautiful furnishings, extremely comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, an amazing view, and every ammenity you could think of. Even in summer, the beaches were not crowded. The owner is very nice and accessable should you need him. We would definitely stay here again and hope to soon!!

Great week.

  • 5 of 5

All expectations exceeded. Fabulous property in fabulous location. Owner is very hands on and super easy to get into contact with. We had two families. The four boys loved the bunk room and had plenty of room. Teenage daughter had her own room and loved it. Masters were the nicest I've stayed in. You lack nothing. We cook a lot on vacations and the kitchen had everything you could want or need with lots of space. We spent most of our days on the beach then enjoyed the pool before retiring for the day. Underground parking was very convienent, keeping our cars cool and easy to get to. There are two Publix grocery stores ten minutes away. Loved that. Only complaint is that the week passed by to quickly.

FABULOUS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a WONDERFUL vacation - and staying at Sanctuary by the Sea made it one of our most memorable to date.

The "Wow Factor" kicked in the minute we stepped inside the front door. Everything was as described and BETTER. The décor is beautiful (like out of a magazine) and the beds...oh my goodness, the beds! Probably some of the best we've ever slept on. LUXURIOUS!!! The kitchen had up-to-date appliances and most everything you would need - even sunsets to watch as you cook! The balcony was perfect - long and large - plenty of patio furniture and where we drank coffee and had breakfast each morning.

The property is beautiful, not too bad of a walk to the beach, even with little ones. Loved the fact that the beach was not crowded and our beach attendant couldn't have been more attentive to take care of all our needs. Location of SBTS is perfect - close to everything you would need or want to go to. There is a great ice cream place (Blue Mountain Creamery) very close by that everyone needs to visit at least once while you are there.

The owner was extremely accommodating - called him a few times with questions and he quickly called us back. It would be very hard to find another place as nice and an owner as gracious and accommodating as this one! Thank you Ray, for letting us make incredible memories with our children and grandchildren! We'll be back!!!

Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family just arrived home from an amazing week at this condo. The Sunday check in was a plus because we avoided all the traffic on busy Saturday.

The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfy. All the kids had plenty of room to spread out.

The views were wonderful from the balcony too.

We can't wait to return :)
