Sanctuary By The Sea Unit 2118 is destined to be the place you’ll want to return to year after year! This beautiful, “platinum” 3 bedroom 3 ½ bath condo offers everything you could want in a vacation rental! 10 foot ceilings, Viking appliances and granite countertops in the fully-equipped kitchen, travertine tile floors, 4 TVs with Dish Network and whole-house DVR, gas fireplace,  and over 2,200 square feet of absolute perfection! 

Each bedroom has its own private bath. The Master has both a whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower. The 38’ x 10’ balcony overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and Big Redfish Lake (a rare coastal dune lake). Free wireless high-speed internet is provided.

Common areas for this resort include 3 beautiful swimming pools, one with zero entry and a view of the ocean, two hot tubs, outdoor grilling area, fire pits, a fitness center, a movie theater, indoor “virtual” golf, a video game area for the kids, and much, much more. All this, plus the beautiful white sands and emerald waters of the Beaches of South Walton, right at your door! 

Sanctuary By The Sea offers gated entry, 24 hour security, multiple elevators, and underground parking to keep the hot Florida sun off of your car. This premiere resort is perfectly situated right in the middle of the scenic 30-A corridor between Blue Mountain Beach and Grayton Beach. 

This is a very low-density development with 23 pristine acres, over 650’ of private beach front, and only 82 units. The boardwalk to the beach is completely ramped (No Stairs!) You’ll enjoy peace and tranquility, yet you’re only minutes from world class restaurants, shopping, golf, and entertainment! Less than a mile to Grayton Beach, 3 miles to Seaside, 10 minutes from Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, and 12 minutes from Silver Sands, the World's Largest Fashion Outlet Mall!!!

Summer Vacation    Jul 17, 2021

review star

This was our 3rd year at Sanctuary by the Sea, first year in unit 2118. We absolutely love it! Been going down to 30A for years and have tried various spots. This is our fave! Beautiful beaches, convenient beach access, fabulous view of the lake and ocean, 2 big pools, great fitness center, golf simulator, theatre room, bike rentals, miles of biking/walking/running path, convenient parking and a beautiful, spacious, updated unit. The rooms are a good size with 3 full baths and a half bath. Laundry room is spacious. It is close to many wonderful restaurants, but if you prefer to eat in, 2118 has a beautiful kitchen which will certainly meet your needs. Definitely not a crowded complex which is extremely appealing to us. Beach chairs/umbrellas are always available and the pool always have open tables and lounge chairs. Plenty of people to meet but plenty of personal space, it's a great balance. I highly recommend the Sanctuary and this unit. We are already booked for 2022!!

We have stayed at many houses/resorts along 30A hru the years, but this one is the best yet! The condo has an open floor plan, well-equipped kitchen, gorgeous view of the lake and gulf, 2 easy paths to the beach, and great location within the resort. Two beautiful pool areas. We stayed week of July 4th but didn’t feel crowded. The owner and Vacasa were very attentive to any needs we had. We will be back!

This was our second year to enjoy this lovely condo. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking in and the bedrooms are roomy and very quiet. The living area allows for much room for the two other couples we shared with. The area affords many top rated restaurants close for eating out. The beach access is easy and the two pool areas are top notched. We found the parking to be very convenient for loading and unloading. We will look forward to another stay.
