About the Property

Spacious 2nd Floor Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This professionally furnished unit is on the second floor with views of The Gulf of Mexico and Big Redfish Lake. The newly furnished balcony has 'bar height' chairs and table for better views while dining or snacking and the balcony is completely private with access from the Living Room & Master Bedroom. The Gulf & Dune Lake can be seen from the Balcony, Living Room & Master Bedroom. The two sun lounges have new top of the line cushions for added comfort.

This incredible unit features 10 foot ceilings, granite kitchen & bar counter-tops, updated kitchen appliances, wireless internet and a gas fireplace. All bedrooms have their own private bathrooms, ceiling fans, cableboxes, HDTVs and DVR disc players for movies. The living-room & master bedroom have new dark wooden floors and the master bath has a large jet tub & separate marble shower. The living room has two ceiling fans and a 55” adjustable flat screen HDTV w/cablebox, DVD & a Blu-Ray player with surround sound. The kitchen is fully furnished including small appliances such as a toaster, toaster oven, a blender & 2 coffee makers (drip style & Keurig unit). The cable network has the sports package and a DVR (recordable programs) package for the living room & master bedroom.


Sanctuary at Redfish is situated on 14 beautiful acres that border Big Redfish Lake, an ultra-rare coastal dune lake. 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. They are truly a treasure of nature & make this location a one-of-a-kind destination. Sanctuary at Redfish is a gated 64 unit, 3 story complex that does not ‘overwhelm’ the amenities provided, even at peak periods (unlike high rise apartment complexes).

Sanctuary at Redfish has a giant tastefully landscaped pool complex with 4 swimming pools and two hot tubs. The large swimming pool has zero depth entry at the west end. The pool area is fully furnished with tables and chairs and pool side lounges. The three small pools are great for families and small children and help reduce the number of people in the large pool. There are two hot tubs bordering the large pool. At the back of the pool complex just past the Fire-pit are 5 Weber Gas Grills which are excellently maintained.

For beach goers, a shuttle boat service is provided (Shuttle service runs from March 1st through the end of October) from our dock for a quick 5 minute trip across Big Redfish Lake to our private white sands beach on the Gulf (or paddle across the lake to our private beach in one of the common kayaks, canoes or row boat). An umbrella and two wooden beach chairs will be set up daily on the beach for our guests (included in the rate). Alternatively, a short 5 minute walk to a private boardwalk (code provided for gate) 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 close to 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).

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.

Owner info

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 nearby Okaloosa Bay. Living on the water is a long standing dream of mine & I go fishing and crabing whenever I am not working. My son Kevin (age 22) just graduated from Florida State University and is working and living in San-Destin. My older son, Nicholas (age 29) currently lives with me on the bay and works in Destin.

Why the Owner Chose Blue Mountain Beach, FL, USA:
I visited my sister in the 30A, Blue Mountain Beach area for several summers and enjoyed it so much that I decided to move here and buy at Sanctuary at Redfish, a decision I have never regretted. I lived at SAR for 1-1/2 years and still stay in the condo in the winter when it is not rented. I find real peace & serenity living on the lake with the Gulf view and when the surf is strong I can see and hear the breaking waves from the balcony.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The huge pool area is unique and beautiful with 4 swimming pools and two hot tubs, never over-crowded. We have a wonderful 'very' private beach. 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.
