The height of luxury living surrounded by the ultimate in natural beauty! Come indulge yourself in this exquisitely-decorated one-of-a-kind condo and you will be spoiled forever. Every condo in Sanctuary By The Sea has Viking appliances, high ceilings, granite counter tops, and beautiful flooring, but this one has undergone an unbelievable transformation with a long list of custom upgrades, elevating it above all others.
Situated on the third and fourth floors (top two floors) of Sanctuary, this spacious two-story condo has over 3100 square feet of living space to relax in. The entire condo is floored in travertine and rugs and is magnificently-appointed with beautiful antique-reproduction solid wood furniture. The living and dining area has custom, hand-crafted, raised tiling on the walls, and beautiful granite shelving that is color-coordinated with the kitchen counter tops. Large multi-level crown molding runs throughout in every room and newly-installed custom lighting provides practical illumination with a dramatic effect.
You and your guests will have not just one, but three luxurious Master King Suites to choose from -- two downstairs and one upstairs. Each elegantly-decorated suite has a large 46' flat panel TV with deluxe sound, a DVD player with Blu-ray capability, custom-designed closets with electronic safes for valuables, and a lavish travertine bathroom with granite-topped double vanities.
The kids will love the bunkroom 'suite'. It features 3 comfortable bunk beds with solid wood frames, travertine flooring, private full bath with a granite-topped double vanity, a 46' widescreen flat panel TV and a state-of-the-art Sony Playstation 3 video game console that also plays Blu-ray DVD's. Take one look and you'll want to be a kid again!
The combination living and dining area can easily seat everyone for in-room dining with the eat-in bar and a large dining table. After the meal, it offers seating for all of those who wish to relax, watch entertainment from the Direct TV satellite system on the the huge 55' flat panel TV, or just gaze out at the Gulf or the large coastal dune lake. Befitting of the incredible view of the best nature has to offer, the dining table and coffee table are both handcrafted of unfinished, solid reclaimed pine timbers from 100-year-old buildings in Great Britain.
The practical side of what makes a vacation worry-free has not been overlooked either. There is no need to worry about taking a lukewarm bath or shower because the hot water capacity has been doubled to 200 gallons and there are two sinks for every bedroom bath. The large laundry room has two complete sets of front loading washers and dryers, perfect for large groups or multiple families.
Sanctuary By The Sea has 23 acres of beautiful nature overlooking a beautiful coastal dune lake. Only a few places in the world are fortunate enough have favorable conditions for these lakes to form, and they provide a unique environment for a diverse collection of wildlife normally in separate fresh water or salt water ecosystems. Enjoy the scenic views, because this condo overlooks the the Gulf, the beach, and the coastal dune lake. In the late afternoon, relax on either of the huge balconies and watch the sun set over the best that nature has to offer.
This world-class development also offers some of the best man-made comforts -- two pool areas (east and west) with 3 large pools (the largest is a zero-entry), whirlpool spas, outdoor gas fire pits, gas grilling areas, owners' club with fitness center, family theater, meeting facilities, magnificent landscaping throughout the property, and easy access to 650 feet of beautiful private beach.

What a great place to spend a vacation. Off the busy traffic areas and over crowed beach high rises. The amenities in this unit are first class and the decor is outstanding. We love the views from the balconies and spent the evenings and mornings just taking in the lake, ocean, and scenery. The weather was perfect and we got to enjoy the sea, pools, and we were able to get in some deep sea fishing getting our limit of Amber Jack, Mingo, and Trigger to cap off the trip. Hope to be back again next year.
The Mortimer Family
Beautiful condo with stunning views. Perfect for our family getaway.
We travel to the 30A area at least once (sometimes twice!) a year. This has been our favorite property by far. Sanctuary by the Sea is close to everything we wanted to do. Destin to the West and Grayton Beach and Seaside are a very short drive to the East. We were in walking distance to the Creamery. This property is close to all the places we love to spend time at while we are in the area. The Sanctuary by the Sea grounds are immaculate, the condo is well and beautifully appointed. The private beach between the lakes is so unique and fun. There is a nice private boardwalk near the pool which made walking & hauling things to the beach easy (no stairs or long walk through deep sand!) Everyday the beach landscape was different & when the kids needed a break from the crashing waves they could play or relax in the area where the lake meets the beach. Kitchen was well stocked with any appliance or cooking tool we needed. We stayed here for a 50th anniversary celebration, so there were three families with kids. Bunk room with it's own bath was perfect for the cousins to sleep, watch movies. Condo is VERY quiet at night so you can enjoy the top deck and hear only the crash of the waves. Beds were VERY comfortable, not lumpy or too soft. Plenty of towels in the bathrooms. TWO washers and driers which is great when you have more than one family trying to do laundry! Owner was easy to work with and responsive. Thank you Mr. Rinker for sharing this beautiful property and making us feel very much "at home" during our stay.
Thank you for such a thoughtful review. It was a pleasure having you and your family! Also, thank you for taking excellent care of our condo and for leaving it in excellent condition.
Very nice, clean, and safe property.
It was nice to meet the owner & his wife soon after our arrival. There was ample room for all three families and no one complained about missing anything. The kitchen was well stocked with just about everything you could imagine. Loved the large refrigerator & freezer. The table was big enough that all nine of us could sit down and eat together. Due to the nice ice maker, we never worried about lack of ice. In addition, there was always hot water. The two decks were very nice also...one covered and the upper deck was enjoyed, especially at night, where you could see the stars.
It was very nice to meet you and your party and we are glad you enjoyed our condo.
Wonderful place! Exceeded all expectations!
Great place for a family vacation with extended family. Top of the line right down to the dishes! Ray was super easy to work with and the condo exceeded our expectations.
It was a pleasure having you and thank you for the very positive review.
Great Property on 30A
This is our third year to stay at this property and our entire family loves it. Every detail has been taken care, from the excellent cleaning crew that prepares for your arrival to the double set of washers and dryers, which is extremely helpful! The gourmet Viking kitchen makes you WANT to stay in and cook at least one night. Every one of the four bedrooms is exquisitely decorated, and the bathrooms are amazing. There is plenty of seating in the den to relax and play games or watch tv at night. The dining area has a wonderfully large table so that everyone has a place. The separate ice maker in the bar area is also a very nice addition. We've had great experiences for the past three years renting from this owner--he is always quick to answer any emails/questions you may have. I would definitely highly recommend this beautiful property.
Thank you for the wonderland review. It was a pleasure having you and your family at our condo.
Gorgeous condo, gorgeous view, amazing vacation!
We had the best time staying in this condo! Sanctuary By the Sea is our favorite place to vacation and this unit and experience with Ray was the best yet! This condo is beautifully decorated and Ray has thought of every single detail! This condo is perfect for a large family like ours. The beds are super comfortable and our kids loved the gaming systems! We cooked 2 meals everyday and had all we needed in the kitchen every time. Ray is an excellent communicator and made this experience fantastic! Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful place to stay!
It was a pleasure working with you and I am so glad you and your family loved the condo and SBTS.
