Sanctuary at Redfish

Rated Excellent on FlipKey

4.6 average rating
based on 6,988 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.

  • 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

Amazing condo in an amazing location

  5 of 5 stars

This was an amazing condo in an amazing location. Convenient to all the activity at Seaside and the other 30a properties, but very quiet and low key. Very well maintained, tastefully decorated, comfortable beds, plenty of pillows, plenty of linens. We had a wonderful time! A couple of things to note and for the management to think about: 1. No wine opener in the unit. Huh? 2. Coffee maker leaked all over the counter every time. 3. No shelf or hanging baskets in the shower meant we had to have soap, shampoo, etc on the floor of the shower. Not very convenient. 4. The front gate was open for our entire stay. As I said, we had a great time and these things did not diminish that at all. We will definitely be back!

Our family enjoyed our stay. The condo worked out well for us but we will need a larger one or a bedroom with another bed for kids next time. We took advantage of the Explorie card for golf and that was great! Thanks for the communication during our stay.

Redfish Sanc.2113

  5 of 5 stars

This was our 3rd year in a row at Sanctuarry. Check in/out was easy as expected. The condo jad a nice view as most 2nd and 3rd dloor condos do. Condo in decent condition but were some rough stain spots on couch and chair in the master bedroom. The worst area was the bathroom close to the utility room as the shower was very dirty and the curtain had mold on it. The other bathroom were glass and were clean. Redfish has changed the canoe and kayak use to where they are locked up early in the afternoons and no unlocked till late in tbe mornings. No early fun time while its cool in the morning's. This change ruined the main thing my son enjoyed about staying there. Pools are still wonderful and appreciate the nice grills. Still good place to come but with the hassles of the boat to the beach and too far to walkto the beach along with the kayak change, this will probably be our last time staying here. Just too far and too much hassle for a beach with the off and on rain that happens in the area. Would still use Newman but would recommend other places now.

We had a fabulous week along 30A!

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.
