About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

My husband and I love the experience of being on 30A. It is our sanctuary and home away from home. The incredible views or Redfish lake and Gulf of Mexico are like no other on 30A. The experience to have a private boat captain take you by pontoon boat from the pool across the lake to your own private beach with a beach service including 2 chairs and an umbrella. There are also 2 beach chairs and an umbrella in the condo for your use or you can rent 2 additional chairs and an umbrella for $30 a day through the beach service. The boat runs from 9am to 5pm in the Spring and Fall and 9am to 7pm in the summer through September

This professionally decorated 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath condominium is one of the few extended or larger three bedroom units in the 64 condominium complex that share the 14 acres nestled along Big Redfish Lake and the Gulf.

Granite countertops in all bathrooms and kitchen, upgraded kitchen appliances, crown molding, and gas fire place, this beautiful condo offers to many first class luxuries to mention. Relax by the large pool area and listen to the soothing waterfalls that lead to the attached separate individual smaller pool areas which are landscaped with flowing palms and different variations of foliage.

The amenities include lakeside dock, exercise room, deeded beach access, high speed internet, walking trails, and gated community. To get to the beach, it is a five to ten minute bike ride or take a relaxing stroll. If you would like a more unique trip, take a ride on the pontoon boat or kayak to cross the lake and be on your own private beach. Enjoy the beauty of nature and so much more at the Sanctuary at Redfish!

A Great Spring Break at Sanctuary at Redfish Lake!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for the first time the last week of March 2017 in unit 2117. Mary is the owner and found her very helpful and resourceful. The condo was exceptional with a very well stocked kitchen with utensils, etc. The view of the pool area and ocean was beautiful from our balcony. Elevator was right outside our condo for easy access when moving in and out from the undercover garage. Very quiet and never heard any noise from other guests. The pontoon taking to and from the beach was so easy and accessible to ride in. The pontoon drivers were friendly and helpful getting in and out!! We will return--excellent place to stay. Thank you, Mary, for providing a 5 star experience!!!!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience at Sanctuary at Redfish and we loved it. It's located in the not-so-congested area of Blue Mountain Beach, but close enough to Destin that we were able to drive there for some dining and shopping. Mary's unit is very clean and we felt comfortable the moment we arrived. It's obvious she takes pride in presenting a welcoming place to stay for her guests. We had no issues with the unit, but if we did, we felt confident that Mary would respond promptly. Her condo has every kitchen appliance you would ever need! If the weather is inclement and you find yourselves indoors, the unit is stocked with games and books/magazines. We loved having the chairs and umbrella waiting for us at the beach each day. We never waited more than a few minutes for the pontoon ride to and from the beach. Even if we had to, the sanctuary was so beautiful to look at, it wouldn't have mattered. The optional walkway to/from the beach took about 15 minutes each way, but the landscaping is so nice that it was worth it. Our family of five (plus one guest) would certainly consider staying at Mary's unit again!!

Mary's unit was absolutely wonderful!! The view was great and we had all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

This was my children's first beach vacation and it was perfect! Everything from the condo to the weather was amazing. The unit is even more beautiful than the pictures give it credit for. There was more than enough room for all of us. We loved every second of it and will definitely be back!! Thank you Mary for the wonderful memories at your place!! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation.

Why Mary Burch chose Blue Mountain Beach

We love Blue Mountain beach the most on the 16 mile stretch of 30 A beaches. It is perfect location to all our favorite restaurants and entertainments spots. Sanctuary at Redfish is minutes from Grayton Beach, Water Color and Seaside. 20 minutes from Rosemary beach and San Destin.

What makes this condo unique

My husband and I love spending mornings by the pool and then when the breeze picks up go to the beach. Then you are ready for early evening walk around Seaside and watch sunset at Bud and Alleys. Stand up paddle surfing is awesome on Redfish lake. And bass fishing is good early morning.


Sanctuary at Redfish is within 10 minutes of Grayton Beach, Sea Side and Watercolor. If you want to go to Destin for outlet shopping, amusement and water parks or restaurants it's 20 minutes away. There are also many great restaurants, shopping and entertainment on 30A
