Sanctuary at Redfish

Rated Excellent on FlipKey

4.5 average rating
based on 5,711 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

Vacation Stay in 3120 Sanctuary at Red Fish

  5 of 5 stars

We love staying in 3120! This is our second summer in a row to stay there and it is a perfect fit for our family! The staff at Newman Dailey is very helpful and friendly. We look forward to visiting Sanctuary at Red Fish again.

Loved the peace and tranquility

  5 of 5 stars

We loved Sanctuary at Redfish! The property is beautiful, pool area is amazing and the pontoon ride the beach was so much fun. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio each evening, it was beautiful...such tranquility and very comfy patio furniture. This is exactly what our family needed, rest, relaxation and fun. We will be back to this unit again next year! Thank you for sharing your home.

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!!

Relaxing Stay

  5 of 5 stars

We loved our stay at Sanctuary at Redfish this month. The rental was great. It was so nice to have a bathroom with each bedroom, a large dining room table, and a fully equipped kitchen. The pools were great for the kids and it was so convenient to have the pontoon and Captain Bob to shuttle us to and from the beach. Only wish there were options for larger families with more children. :)

Great Condo for Family Vacation!

  5 of 5 stars

I loved my stay at Sanctuary at Redfish 1101! The living and kitchen area was perfect for my family because it was spacious and it was a great space for us to spend time together. The bedrooms were really nice. The condo essentially has two master bedrooms which was perfect for my family – we loved having the additional small balcony off of the second bedroom as a quiet space to read and drink coffee in the mornings. In addition to that, the kids loved their bunk room and hanging out in their own space just for them! The unit was very clean and our experience was very enjoyable. My family and I will definitely be staying here again!

Perfect Condo

  5 of 5 stars

We had a great time in this condo! It was perfect for the 6 of us; each couple had their own private bedroom (with a king bed) and bathroom. The kitchen and living area were very spacious and the kitchen was nicely updated. The patio was very peaceful and tucked away from the community pool area. We could hear the gulf waves on the patio and knew they were just beyond our view of the lush dune trees in front of us. Very cozy, intimate, and comfortable. Perfect couples’ getaway spot!

Spring Break!

  5 of 5 stars

This unit was beautifully decorated and clean. The unit has large balconies which overlooked the pools. It was a quiet area, as we wanted to be away from the Party portion of Spring Break because we had our tween daughters with us. It was a wonderful unit that allowed us plenty of R & R and we would definitely rent the same unit again.
