Welcome to our beautiful gulf front second floor condo in the most appealing resort on Scenic 30A. 3 bedroom, 3 ½ bath. Over 2,200 sq. ft. 10 foot ceilings, Viking gourmet kitchen with natural gas stove. Huge balcony (over 370 sq.ft.) with views of the Gulf of Mexico and Big Redfish Lake (a rare coastal dune lake). (We are # 2115, in the middle of the west facing wing -- the left side in the aerial photo below). Fabulous sunsets.

Sanctuary By the Sea is that rare condo development on the Gulf that respects the natural beauty and open spaces of the Emerald Coast. Set on 23 acres of mostly undisturbed dunes and native flora, with over 650 feet of pristine beach, this truly is a “sanctuary” from the over populated, overbuilt complexes that crowd the coast.

Every bedroom has its own private bath. The Master has both a Whirlpool Tub and a large walk-in shower. The Living Room and Master have wide screen HD televisions. TVs and DVD players in every room. Wi-Fi high speed internet connection. 370 sq. ft. balcony w/ tables, chairs, and recliners.

Complimentary beach service - two umbrellas and four chairs are set up and waiting for you on the shore. (Beach service is not available November through February). Using an elevator to the first floor, you can walk all the way to your beach chairs with NO STEPS.

Three swimming pools (one with a waterfall), two hot tubs, two gas fire pits, outdoor gas grills. Exercise facility. Club house with big screen movie theater (seating for 7), virtual golf room (must see it to believe it) -- all complimentary.

Dock on Big Redfish Lake with a launch for a kayak or canoe.

Gated entrance. Underground parking. Elevators. Security on site 24/7. Maintenance person on site.

Adjacent to bike path. We provide two cruiser bikes for your enjoyment.

The best location in all South Walton. Two miles west of Seaside and Seagrove Beach. Ten minutes from Grand Boulevard (Sandestin). Walking distance to Grayton Beach State Park (100 yards).

The best of both worlds: A peaceful retreat close to great restaurants and shopping.

Don't confuse us with Sanctuary at Redfish -- a nice resort nearby but it is not on the Gulf. You can walk directly to the beach from our condo with very few stairs. (Our elevators makes it extra convenient).
