Sanctuary at Redfish

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
 

Options to access beach:

  • Pontoon boat ferry service from lake side to beach area March 1 - Oct 31 9am - 5pm
  • 6 tenths of a mile (approx 10min walk) via boardwalk around lake

We found Sanctuary at Redfish last year for a fall break trip and fell in love! We immediately knew we wanted to stay again for our summer trip and couldn't be happier that we did! This place is great! 2104 has a view of the beach and the water, plus you're almost guaranteed to see some deer throughout the week. We saw deer almost every morning and evening along the preserve. Our room was very nice and our whole group was very impressed with everything. This room came with a cabana and we loved having that convenience. It was a handy place to stop off when going to and from the beach, or while hanging at the pools. The whole complex is nice and quiet and a great place for a beach vacation!

We enjoyed the condo. Check in was so easy. All instructions for rules, TV operation and WiFi, and use of facilities were simple and easy to understand. It was clean and one of the best stocked (dishes, pots, pans, towels ,etc) condos we have ever stayed in. The location to everything was convenient to everything. The only minor suggestion I would have is that some of the doors squeaked rather loudly so would check them periodically. We would definitely stay there again.

This was the first time in 10 years I’ve had all of my children on a vacation and the condo did not disappoint. There was plenary of room for us to spread out. The Grayton Beach area had a lot of activities to entertain my different age group of children and grand child. This was my 3rd visit to Sanctuary at Redfish and I will continue to come back. It’s my favorite beach condo from Orange Beach to Panama City.

This property was even better overall than we expected by seeing the listing. It was meticulously clean and the property management co was fantastic! By far the best experience in property mngmt thus far for us with just the ease of it all, communication and the care of the property. Well oiled machine that felt personable! The unit is more spacious than the pictures can really show. We are a family of 6 and we never felt on top of each other. It’s full of luxury touches and we noticed the fireplace had been updated since the pictures. It was so organized and labeled in the kitchen and the bathrooms and more supplies than we expected. Very sweet details too like aloe under the bathroom sinks and storage containers for supplies.This unit is on the 1st floor right in front of the opening of the building and the covered portico. This made unloading and loading so easy and our car was right out in front. The back porch is spacious and we spent a lot of time there having coffee, reading, listening to the ocean sounds and bird watching! Yes, there are even bird feeders. It was lovely watching birds and rocking in the very comfortable chairs! The property is very peaceful. We wondered where everyone was but we are told that only some are rentals and many are owned. However, we met lovely renters and owners and it was meticulous. We used the boat, the grills, the hot tubs and the HEATED pool which was a total bonus during a little bit of an unusually chilly week. They also have a fire pit. The public beach is very close in walking distance and a cute ice cream shop and a restaurant. Having the private beach too was a huge plus. The boat ride feels like a couple of minutes and was so nice! We will definitely stay at the Santuary at Redfish again. Suggestions: -If possible list more of the many included items that are there. ie. croc pot, pressure cooker etc. Also, what is in storage space in the parking garage area. -Supply a full size ironing board. There is space for this in the laundry room. The mini one was very difficult to use (the iron itself was great). -Most important, upgrade or change all the mattresses to include the pull out mattress too. This is the ONLY reason we would consider another unit. We loved everything else so much! The master mattress sagged and the pull out coach our son said he could feel the coils. Amazon has inexpensive ones with great reviews. Thank you for everything!

Newman-Dailey Response:

Thank you for your recent review. Unfortunately, beds can be tricky, since everyone’s preferences are different. However in this case after we had maintenance look at the bed they found the middle supports were not level causing the center to have no support, this has now been repaired and has made a huge difference. We appreciate your feedback and hope you’ll call us in the future if there anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you back to the beach.

We had such an amazing and memorable vacation. 3106 was clean and comfortable, we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the location, it was easy walk to restuarants and there was an ice cream shoppe just outside the gate. The pontoon shuttle was so much fun, we even did the walking trail back to the condo a couple times when we wanted to stay at the beach a bit longer than the shuttle was running. Great way to walk off some of the ice cream we indulged on. Great experience and we can't wait to come back.

There is no view of the Gulf from this first floor unit which we knew, there is a grassy, wooded area behind the condo, and our girls enjoyed playing back there. The inland lake is also fun for kids. Paddling around on the canoes and kayaks and digging in the sand for little crabs was fun. We also enjoyed the pontoon ride over the beach.

We had a wonderful stay! The place was better than expected and very spacious!

I loved all the small details of this place like motion detecting night lights in the master bedroom/bathroom, a small air fryer in the kitchen and tons of extra pillows in varying types. This place also has a big walk in closet off each master bedroom and one of the closets was a perfect room for our infant that was on the trip. They also provided a pack n play at the condo. Beds were all very comfortable and clean and each bedroom had a nice tv too! We had a great stay and hope to come back again next year!

Stayed with Newman-Dailey Resorts. Amazing condo on the peaceful preserve side with a view of the Gulf in 2104. The rental came with a poolside cabana. The cabana is perfect for keeping drinks and snacks, a place to cool off and rest. The pool deck is the most relaxing and beautiful place. There are 2 hot tubs, a heated pool, an adults only pool, and the large common pool! We didn't even get to explore everything the property offers like the fire pit, nature trail, and the kayaks on the lake. Amazing time and already looking to plan the next escape here.

INCREDIBLE! My family and I had the best time at 2113. The condo was absolutely beautiful and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked and they bedding was very comfortable. Not only that the grounds and pools were a favorite. We have never been to a place with four pools!! The kids loved it. They would splash and play in the pool during the day and then we would relax at our private balcony at night. We were close to restaurants and activities. We cannot say enough good things about this condo. We will for sure be back!

Our family had the best time ever. The condo was clean and provided everything we needed. The boat shuttle to the beach was fun and the staff is so courteous and friendly. We even took the walk to the beach one morning, not a short walk but beautiful and so peaceful. We can't wait to come back.

Great time at this clean, roomy, 2nd floor condo. Nice view of the pool area, and the gulf in the distance. Easy to get to the beach via a boat, or about a 15 minute walk along a path. Plenty of room for us and our three teenage sons. Would like it if the free bike rental was at the place a half mile away, rather than the one on the other side of Seaside. Was easier and more practical for us to eat $35 for the sake of convenience picking up and returning the bikes. Plenty of good places to eat within a five minute drive. We all had a wonderful time and will certainly return in the future.

Overall the experience was great from the time I booked the vacation online to getting this great “app” which helped out a lot. The resort was beautiful and my children and grandchildren loved it!! The weather didn’t cooperate the best every day so having the one heated pool was amazing especially for the little ones. We had a bigger condo so the only little issue was not having enough cooking supplies for cooking for 10 people! But all in all a great time had by all!! Thank you!! Will share our experience with our friends!

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!

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. :)

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!

best vacation ever at sanctuary at redfish

5.0

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.

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!

My sisters and our daughters enjoyed our annual girls trip immensely. Santuary at Redfish 2115 was a great condo and offered everything we needed. The pool cabana was an excellent feature as we have a combination of sun and air-conditioning lovers. The cabana allowed us all to be together which was awesome. Loved the less crowded atmosphere at Blue Mt. Beach. We highly recommend lunch at Local Catch and Stinky's. The lake allowed us to kayak and yolo which was great fun! The only minor negative is the distance from the beach. It wasn't as convenient as we had hoped. But I have to say, the pool cabana made up for it. Overall, our vacation was relaxing, fun, and the weather was beautiful. Can't wait to go back!!!

We enjoyed our stay over Spring Break in april 2014. When we walked in were were surprised at how much room we had. It was nice, clean. We had 2 families with a total of 10 people and it was very comfortable, we didn't feel like there was a lack of space in any way. The pools were nice... It said one was heated however they all seemed quite cold. The kids didn't mind the pool temps but there weren't many adults in the water, at least not for long. The beds seemed very comfortable, above what Im used to when we go on vacation. The location is good. There is a publix about 5-10 minutes away, a walmart about 10-15 minutes away. Destin is about a 20-30 minute drive to get to the outlets/dolphin tour boats/ect. Seaside is less than 10minutes away and is a nice place for an evening. We were very happy with our choice to stay here and would probably stay here again if we choose to come to this area. We did have to get our key code at the rental office in Destin, about 20-30 minutes from the condo, and kind of out of our way, which was a little disappointing since we had already driven 16 hours but it wasn't a big deal.

We have been renting from Newman-Dailey for 20 years, we started in 1992. Each year they exceed our expectation. We have rented several properties to accommodate our family of 13. Each year our experience is better and better. Our contact has been and will continue to be Kerbi Ancona. Kerbi and staff go above and beyond the call of duty. We typically ask Kerbi to pick the property, she knows what my family likes, we have never been disappointed. Great place to have a family vacation and a great company to deal with.

We thoroughly enjoyed the well-equipped, beautifully decorated condo, with its breath- taking views and inviting pools. The fresh water lake leading to an un-crowded, sparkling beach made our vacation spectacular, and all family members enjoyed the water taxi with Captain Bob. Some days we even canoed out to the beach, where we enjoyed the complimentary beach set-up. Everyone agreed we have discovered the perfect vacation getaway spot on 30a!

Our group of 12 had a fantastic family time for our week at Sanctuary at Redfish. The unit was beautiful and spacious with room for everyone to be comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied for those cook in nights and the restaurants nearby were excellent. This location feels "remote" when you are eating breakfast on the balcony with a view that is incredible- but any possible need from groceries to high end shopping is within a 10 mile radius. The dune lake, the canoes/kayaks, the beach taxi, and the staff all make this vacation experience unique. My husband enjoyed the nearby golf and I loved the shopping "get away.". We will keep this week on our yearly schedule.

This was our first time to stay at Santuary at Redfish. Loved the property, location, pool was wonderful, Capt Bob is so nice, beach was great being private and not being 2ft from someone on beach. The only disadvantage was our condo didn't have wireless internet, it had been disconnected by owner. We own our own business and it was impossible to get emails on iphone due to spotty coverage. My husband had to go down to Starbucks to get internet service. The unit was great and meet some wonderful families at the pool and beach. I recommend this unit to anyone if they get the internet working! Overall a great place to stay for a week!

Condo 2115 is well appointed and well maintained. Sanctuary at Redfish is the ideal beachside condo if you really love being outdoors. There is kayaking and canoeing on the lake and getting to the beach is like an adventure. We saw lots of wildlife while we were there. Redfish is definitely different from the condos in Destin. The four pools are very clean and well maintained. The fire pit was perfect for the cooler days. It is a very peaceful, relaxing place.

Wow! This condo is beautiful! We just returned from a very relaxing, fun week at Santuary at Redfish. The rental agent did not include the gate code or the second parking pass we needed, but other than that our week was great. Our teens loved taking the canoe to the beach. The beach is absolutely beautiful! One of the prettiest we have ever visited. Our condo was clean and there was plenty of room for everyone. The only drawback to this property is that it is not directly on the beach, but the pools are amazing - so if you don't want to take the little extra effort to get to/from the beach you can still enjoy the sunshine beside the beautiful pool.
