This sixty-four unit condominium resort is located on approximately fourteen secluded acres in Santa Rosa Beach Florida.  The property slopes down to Big Redfish Lake providing breathtaking lake and gulf views. Only a few places in the world are fortunate enough to 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. Of the fourteen acre property, the building sits on approximately six acres. Sanctuary at Redfish preserves as much of the natural vegetation as possible to create an environment of serenity and privacy unmatched along 30A.

The expansive pool deck consists of four separate pools, including one zero-entry pool, one adult pool, and one heated pool which is great for children. There are also two hot tubs.

We offer Complimentary Beach Service which includes two beach chairs and an umbrella that awaits you at the beach for the duration of your stay. If you need additional beach chairs you will find TWO additional beach chairs in the unit for you convenience. You will need to transport them to and from the beach if you choose to use them.

Very nice!    Jul 06, 2017

We stayed in the unit during mid July of 2017. Three generations of our family were present. For the kids, there is an excellent swimming area with two hot tubs very close by. That area was beautifully landscaped and completely relaxing. We also took advantage of the gas grills that are installed there as well as the outdoor gas fire-pit to cook smores. This unit was also a very good choice for the older members of our party. The main entrance to the unit is immediately adjacent to the covered loading\unloading area of that building. Very little walking is required and this makes life much easier for those who have difficulty moving around. The unit was very clean and well maintained. We found everything ready for immediate occupancy when we arrived. I also noticed that there is almost complete soundproofing from the other units immediately nearby. We never heard another sound and I am forced to assume that they never heard us either. Good entertainment options as far as the television and internet was concerned. The connection allowed us to stream movies and cast them to the TV with ease. Overall, the owners were very easy to deal with, the unit had everything she said it would have in it and it was very well maintained and move in ready when we arrived. We loved it. This unit, and this owner, are very highly recommended to those who would like a family vacation without any unpleasant surprises. We have stayed in many rental properties, the furnishings and decorations were upper scale and compare very favorably to high end accomodations you may find elsewhere. A very nice place, no dirt, bugs, noise, or any other unpleasantness was found here. Thank you Cathy!

Cathy Nordstrom's reply:

Pete, You are too kind for that detailed review of our condo. It really warms my heart to know the reasons why we like the condo so much is also the very reasons you like it as well. I try to make it a place folks feel HOME at. Thanks again and hope to have you come back soon. Cathy

Beautiful place. We loved staying there!


Last Minute Vacation    Jun 05, 2016

We recently spent a very relaxing week at this condo. It was our first time visiting the 30a area. Cathy was very helpful, and responded to our last minute inquiry quickly (we booked and traveled the same day). The condo was exceptionally nice and comfortable. The pool area was beautiful as well. Our only negative was the distance from the condo to the beach, and of course the boat ride to get there. Fortunately, we traveled with 2 older children, but could see it would be difficult to manage getting to the beach with younger children and their toys, etc. Overall, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Nice Get Away    May 01, 2016

This condo was very nice and had all the necessities needed with everything upgraded. A couple instances with things missing but Cathy was very quick to resolve. The pontoon shuttle was very nice and having beach service was definitely a plus. Only drawback was that memorial day weekend had a lot of people going to a from the beach so there was sometimes a 5 minute wait for the shuttle as multiple trips had to be made with all the people. Other than that, from pool to residence, this place was very nice.


Amazing Place    Apr 01, 2016

The pictures did not do this property and condo justice! It was beautiful and well kept! Cathy was amazing to work with too!
