The serene haven that is Sanctuary envelops its guests and residents in Edenic tranquility. Built with the intent to preserve as much of the surrounding natural vegetation as possible, Sanctuary leaves a minimal footprint on the environment. Luxury blends seamlessly with untouched beauty creating a truly unique and rejuvenating escape.

Set on the east side of Big Redfish Lake along scenic 30A in Blue Mountain Beach, this 64 unit complex is unmatched in amenities and locale. Big Redfish Lake is a rare natural phenomenon known as a "coastal dune lake" and these quiet bodies of water can only be found a few places on the planet.

Spacious balconies overlook the lake and view the Gulf of Mexico, while walking trails lead to picturesque gazebos perfect for watching herons alight over the water. The pool deck is also a thing of beauty consisting of three tiered pools, two jacuzzi's, a fire pit, four grills and poolside cabanas. All of this man made luxury is integrated into the lush semi-tropical foliage including the bluish-purple Gulf Coast lupine which inspired the area's name.

The interior of each vacation rental features the same level of attention to detail and unsurpassed craftsmanship as the exterior of Sanctuary. Ten foot ceilings, granite counters, upgraded appliances and master suites with jacuzzi bathtubs are among the creature comforts. Plus, a fitness center and ferry rides to the beach round out the amenities. Yet what makes the gem that is Sanctuary really sparkle has to be its fabulous location close to the hip redfish village, nearby restaurants and the Gulf of Mexico in its backyard.

  • Expansive pool deck consists of three separate pools (1 heated seasonally) + two jacuzzi tubs
  • Large gas firepit
  • Community grilling area with four gas grills
  • Underground/Covered parking
  • Fitness Center
  • Maximum occupancy is 10 people per condo

Guest Reviews

We love Sanctuary at Redfish!

  5 of 5 stars

We absolutely love the peace and tranquility of Sanctuary at Redfish! This was our first stay at 1101 and it did not disappoint. The unit is so lovely....just the right balance of class and whimsy! Nothing garishly overdone like you see in so many beach rentals. This was our first experience with 1101 but I hope it's not our last!


Outstanding Vacation!

  5 of 5 stars

We really enjoyed our fall vacation in the Blue Mountain community of Sanctuary at Redfish. The natural serene atmosphere was just what we needed. Condo 1102 was so nice and comfortable, with everything we needed for a home away from home. It is very clean, roomy and very nicely appointed. We just love the natural surroundings and the beautiful pool area. We will be back!


Perfect condo at the Beach

  5 of 5 stars

We stayed here during fall break with my family and my brother's family. Everyone had a wonderful time. The condo is very roomy and we all had our private space and our "together" space. We were a little concerned with the kids having enough to do in a "sanctuary" type environment, but they were great and enjoyed the property immensely. The property is quiet and beautiful and the condo was verynice and comfortable. We will be back again soon!


Awesome Experience!

  5 of 5 stars

We had an incredible time at Sanctuary at Redfish with three generations in the condo. The condo was excellent, the pools were amazing, and the ride to the beach on the pontoon boat was one of the highlights for our kids. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to families looking for outstanding accommodations that boast both a coastal dune lake and the beach. The Newman-Dailey team went above and beyond to help us create a memorable family vacation!


Escape to the Sanctuary at Redfish

  5 of 5 stars

We spent a week at this great property at Santa Rosa Beach and thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed the stay. The condominium was attractive and comfortable. The property and pool area was large and never too crowded. The beach was white sands lining the emerald green waters of the gulf. My family had a great time and hated leaving.


Best Vacation Ever at Sanctuary at Redfish

  5 of 5 stars

My family and I can't say enough about Sanctuary at Redfish. The grounds were immaculate and the beautiful pools were never crowded. Our view from the balcony of Unit 2115 was the best of all worlds; the pool area, the beautiful Redfish Lake and the gorgeous beach. The condo was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the short boat ride to the beach with Captain Chris and Captain Bob and really felt like it added a special touch to the trip. We made the walk to the beach also, and I would suggest that directions to the boardwalk should be included in the welcome package, as we did spend a little time trying to find it! My husband and teen boys fished every day in Redfish Lake using one of the boats that was provided and we took advantage of the kayaks and canoes. The beach was perfect--our chairs and umbrella were waiting for us every day and the private beach was never over crowded. We also appreciated the underground parking garage, as it helped to keep the vehicle cool and out of the hot June sun. Blue Mountain Creamery was great and just a short walk or bike ride away. We have stayed in other areas of 30A in the past, but this has definitely become our favorite and we will be back. We are so glad to have found Sanctuary at Redfish.


Love Sanctuary at Redfish!

  5 of 5 stars

Just loved the resort with the swimming pools, grill and hot tub not to mention the boat ride to the beach with Captain Bob. The beach was fabulous and not crowded like so many others are. The gift upon getting into the unit was wonderful and we ate the whole thing. Your gift coupons and information was first class, very nice touch. The only complaint we can think of there was no shampoo etc... for the showers. As we mentioned, we are looking to buy a vacation/rental home in the area. We spent time talking with guests and met several long time fulltime residents. They had nothing but good things to say about the resort and they have loved the time they have been there. One couple had lived there since it opened and another had been there 5 years plus. They then informed us that both are building homes in the area with one couple keeping their unit and the other is selling theirs. We will continue to look around the area but currently Sanctuary at Redfish is high on our list. Thanks again for being able to meet our schedule.


Wonderful Place to Stay

  5 of 5 stars

We stayed here the week after Christmas. It is an absolutely beautiful home. At night with the patio door open you can hear the waves from both master bedrooms! Santa Rosa Beach is a unique place also. We loved eating at Goat Feathers and Stinky Fish Camp. Redfish Sanctuary would also be fun in the warmer months. Hope we get to visit then!
