Sanctuary at Redfish

Rated Excellent on FlipKey

4.6 average rating
based on 6,371 reviews

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.

  • Large gas firepit
  • Community grilling area with four gas grills
  • Underground/Covered parking

Beautiful! Staff couldn't be nicer.

Amazing week

  5 of 5 stars

We have had an amazing week here! It has been so relaxing and beautiful. The condo is so warm and cozy. I can't wait to come back next year and do it again. This by far has been the most beautiful place we have stayed on vacation. The view is breathtaking and I spent a lot of time on the balcony. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

Shhh............Our Little Secret

  5 of 5 stars

I hesitated to write this review, as I didn't want to share our secret about how much we enjoyed this little sliver of paradise! However, I decided I need to compliment the owner, the HOA, and Newman Dailey management on what a beautiful home this was for us during our one week vacation. We've stayed on 30A before but never here, and never on one of the rare coastal dune lakes. It was beautiful inside and out from the expertly decorated and well equipped condo to the beautiful swimming pools, hot tubs and grounds surrounding. We typically stay right on the Gulf but we loved the change of pace being on the lake provided us. We could take the pontoon taxi down to the beach, or we could kayak or canoe which we did several times, or there is a walking trail(10-15 minutes depending on your pace). And when the gulf was flat and calm we canoed out there too! If your preference is to stay directly on the gulf with a short walk, then this may not be your cup of tea. We enjoyed the different pace of having both the lake and the gulf and the views of both from this condo are magnificent!! We will be back next year!!
