These lakes flow in & out of the Gulf & are unique & very rare throughout the world. In the United Stated they are only found adjacent to our very own Northwest Florida beaches.

Alternatively, a short 5 minute walk to a private boardwalk also delivers you over the dunes onto the beach - (or back to the condo after an evening beach stroll). Paved and Non-paved bike trails are accessed either in front of the complex or just down the street. Scenic Hwy 30A runs right in front of the complex connecting Blue Mountain Beach with Grayton Beach, Water Color, Seaside and Rosemary Beach resorts to mention a few and the paved bike trails run the length of these towns and more. Bicycle rentals are available onsite the complex. Also, a public beach with Lifeguards and public parking is located about 6 blocks from Sanctuary at Redfish (a good place to swim when the Gulf waves get up. p For winter renters; one small pool is heated to 80 F throughout the winter (unless the temperature drops below 50 F and the heater is shut down) and two hot tubs are always running.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I moved here from Atlanta, Ga. in 2010, although I was born in Tampa, Florida. I'm an Engineering consultant & I do a lot of work out of the state. I absolutely love Santa Rosa Beach and the greater 30A area. I live with one of my two sons in a house on Okaloosa Bay nearby. Living on the water is a long standing dream of mine & I fish and crab whenever I am not working. My son Kevin (age 21) is currently going to college in Panama City and will attend Florida State University next fall to finish his degree. My older son, Nicholas (age 27) currently lives with me on the bay (9 miles from Sanctuary at Redfish).
Why the Owner Chose Sanctuary at Redfish: I visited my sister here for several summers in a row (she also lives in the Blue Mountain Beach/ Santa Rosa Beach area) and enjoyed it so much that I decided to move here, a decision I have never regretted. When the surf is strong I can see the breaking waves and hear them a second later as the sound crosses the lake.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: PAY $250 DEPOSIT or PAY IN FULL After making your inquiry. The huge pool area is unique and beautiful. We have a wonderful private beach (never overcrowded). Access to restaurants stores and markets. Alternatively, the area is not a concrete jungle but supports parks, biking & hiking trails, brackish lakes, with trees and greenery everywhere. Living over a state sanctuary and dune lake has been relaxing & wonderful.
