Perfect large family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sanctuary by the Sea 2112 was nothing short of perfect! Our family of 7, which includes 2 preschoolers and a great grandmother, was very comfortable in this spacious condo. The elevator with carts right by the door made bringing our luggage and groceries up so easy! The parking garage was well ventilated, keeping our car cool each time we used it. The floor plan of the condo allowed plenty of room to be together and not feel cramped. At the end of the day the 4 bedrooms with tvs, media room, and large living area gave us the privacy we desired. The well thought out kitchen and laundry room made staying organized a breeze. We loved the spacious balcony with the incredible pool and ocean views. The fitness center was nice! The walk to the beach was easy and took about 6 minutes. The 3 pools and beach were never crowded. We usually had the pools to ourselves! Amazing restaurants and shopping were incredibly close. The owners were in touch with us during our stay making sure everything was to our liking. The separate ice maker and filtered water throughout the condo were certainly an added plus! This condo was super clean upon arrival! We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Property and an Amazing Condo. Look no farther if you want a VERY nice place to enjoy the

  • 5 of 5

All expectations exceeded. Fabulous property far nicer than the pictures show. The owner is super easy to get into contact with and very nice to deal with. We had our whole family with us and it was great. The kids loved the beach and pools. The Master was the nicest we've stayed in. You lack nothing. We cook a lot on vacations and the kitchen had everything you could want or need with lots of space. We spent most of our days on the beach then enjoyed the pool before retiring for the day. Underground parking was very convenient. There is a lot to do close by. Only complaint is that the week passed by to quickly.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to have found this wonderful condo. The unit is huge. The condo was fully furnished with just about everything you need in the kitchen plus filtered water. If you have been to FL, you know the water has a terrible taste. The beds were all very comfortable. The bonus media room was perfect for the kids while the adults enjoyed the family room. The unit is located right above one of the pools so it was easy to watch the kids from the patio or on the pool deck. I would definitely rent this unit again.

"This condo is worth going back to, so we did. It was as great as last year! Our 3 generations (20's, 50's & 80's) were all happy. The view from the balcony is great. The kitchen equipment is gourmet quality. The furnishings are comfortable and good looking. What else could you want?

The resort is also outstanding, with two pool, hot tub and sunning complexes, and a social building. Our group had several sessions with the golf simulator and also enjoyed cocktails on the outdoor terrace overlooking the pool and gulf. There are several other covered outdoor areas with comfortable furniture.

We plan to be back in 2015."

Amazing condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived at this property, we were pleased to find that we were greeted by security. They provided us with a parking pass for each of our vehicles and helpful hints for the property. Upon entering the condo, every expectation was exceeded! This is an amazingly beautiful condo! Our group (family of four and 2 separate grandparents) found everything we could ask for and more here. We all had our own space within the large condo, so we could spend time together or retire to our own quarters to relax. The balcony was one of our favorite places to spend time, with plenty of seating, and a view of the ocean, lake and pool area. We visited during the holiday week of Memorial Day, yet the pools and beach were never crowded. We came to love the true sanctuary of this property! We were very close to everything, yet it felt we were completely away from it all. This was our first time visiting the area, and this was the perfect place to vacation! We also found that the owners were very pleasant and easy to communicate with. The booking process was very simple and we always felt like we had all the information we needed from them to have the best experience possible. It was very relaxing here, and I would very highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting to visit the Destin area.
