About the property

Sanctuary At Redfish has 14+ acres of beautiful nature overlooking a beautiful coastal dune lake. 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. Enjoy the scenic views, because this condo overlooks Big Redfish Lake. In the late afternoon, relax on the huge balcony and watch the sunset auras over the best that nature has to offer.

As you begin your vacation experience, enter your luxury condo with all new furnishings, all arranged for you to have a most relaxing time. Spacious and luxurious 3 bedrooms/3.5 baths,1800 square feet plus a 400 square foot covered balcony. Two master suites with king beds and a third bedroom suite with two twin beds, plus a sofa sleeper for a total sleeping capability of 8. Each bedroom is equipped with it's own full bath. There is a powder room and a separate laundry room off the beautiful hall entry. The large kitchen is fully equipped with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There is a breakfast bar with bar stools on the kitchen island.Enjoy your formal dining table that seats six. The large great room has a 50 inch HDTV with blu-ray DVD. Each bedroom has a 32 inch TV. This unit has 10 ft. ceilings with Travertine floors in bathrooms, hallways and kitchen. The great room and bedrooms are carpeted.

This world-class development also offers some of the best man-made comforts -- Pool areas include with 4 large pools (the largest is a zero-entry),one Adult only, and one Heated, whirlpool spas, waterfalls, outdoor S'Mores cookery for kids/fire pit, gas grilling areas, owners' club with fitness center, meeting facilities that are all just waiting for you to relax and enjoy the wonderful sea air.

After a great day enjoying Blue Mountain Beach, you will have access to the gas barbecues and fire pit poolside. Or, you can venture out and enjoy one of the many fabulous restaurants within minutes of your vacation home.

Blue Mountain Beach Florida is the highest elevation found along Florida’s Gulf Coast,which means it also has the best views. So why the unusual name? Well, early sailors (tell the kids it was pirates) christened it Blue Mountain after seeing its high sand dunes covered in the rare blooms of the Blue Lupine flower (which are blue). Now you can enjoy the breathtaking sunset views in Blue Mountain Beach Fl from your large private balcony or poolside and don't forget to enjoy sunsets at the beach.

A small community with a neighborly feel, Blue Mountain Beach Fl has a popular ice cream shop, natural foods store, bike rentals, a bakery and delicious restaurants within walking distance. The community also features two rare coastal dune lakes and connects to nature trails in the Point Washington State Forest and the bike path along Scenic 30-A.

The vibe in Blue Mountain Beach in Florida is laid-back, relaxed and friendly. It is a quiet community that is located close to Grayton Beach, Seaside and Dune Allen Beach. Families often walk up from the beach to grab an ice cream cone or fresh fruit smoothie and the restaurants here serve some of the finest fried shrimp on 30-A. If you are looking for an old-fashioned beach escape that is not crowded, but close to everything — then Blue Mountain Beach Florida is the perfect beach escape.

Why Randy Merritt chose South Walton

Why this property? So Relaxing and far away from the fast past, crowded area's of Seaside,Destin,Panama City. So many great places to eat and enjoy within 1 mile. Best part

several offer BOGO dinner's offered year around,like Cafe 30A in Seagrove. The Vue on 30A ( voted best sunset dining on 30A)offers BOGO dinner's once a week. Pandora in Grayton best grilled fish in Sowal has BOGO nightly..Please keep in mind these specials are subject to change..Oh, and Nicks on the Beach a 5 minute walk,'best fried shrimp on the beach' and then Blue Mountain Creamery on your walk back home..

What makes this condo unique

Gated community, maintenance, cleaning service and beach set-up on site. Pools are not over crowded. World class work out gym. Located on the bike path of 30A. Dune Lake for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Water Taxi to private beach. Newer unit with lots of space. Exceptionally kept grounds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was entirely relaxing,fun,and memorable. The accommodations couldn't be better,spotless,well-located and comfortable. Our kids really appreciated the cage full of beach toys and water amusements.

We explored the coast from Destin to Panama City Beach,and concluded that Redfish is perfectly situated and not too developed. Future gues should be sure not to miss the Blue Mt.Creamery---We made a daily visit.

We would love to return

Sanctuary at Redfish Review

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week at the Sanctuary! The unit was amazing and very well maintained.

By way of constructive feedback, the digital access inside the unit was poor - had to walk outside and down the corridor to complete a cell phone call and to send/receive text messages (and, yes, we did log onto the wifi).

Owner's Response: Sorry about the cell service ATT and Verizon seem to have best coverage in the area. If it was one of those two they must have had a signal problem. Glad y'all enjoyed your vacation. Randy Merritt

Lovely property...hard to get to beach

  • 2 of 5

The condo was perfect. It had everything we needed to feel at home away from home. I missed the beach access, however. The boat service was unreliable and it took several attempts for us to discover just how to gain walking access.

We also were overwhelmed by the rules that no one else seemed to follow, i.e. Using their own chairs at the beach, playing loud music, etc.

We won't stay here again.

Great for adults and kids alike!

  • 5 of 5

Sanctuary at Redfish is a fantastic location on 30A. Our kiddos love the short boat ride to the private beach. The heated pool allows for great fun even when the ocean waters are cool! Unit 1121 was clean and comfortable.

Where do you live?

Needed to stay a few weeks!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was huge and well-appointed. The kitchen had everything we wanted. We enjoyed the location and kayaking to beach, fun and easy. Too bad for us that this was the week for painters and construction workmen, but I know they have to do maintenance on buildings sometime. Sanctuary at Redfish is very well taken care of. We would stay here again.

The condo was great! Very clean and nicely decorated! A very good location...walking distance to Blue Mountain Creamery and beach, or you can take the relaxing boat ride to beach. Absolutely loved our vacation! Randy was great to work with....would love to go back!

Wonderfully, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sanctuary at Redfish in unit 1121. The condo was very spacious and clean, as well as the entire property. The condo, as well as the entire property, was peaceful and quiet. The beds were all comfortable, and that's a huge plus! Teenage boys loved the kayaks and canoes and used them as their mode of transportation to and from the beach several times over the week. The pontoon ride to the beach was enjoyable, and Captains Bob and Christine were very friendly. The pool area was nice; but there's not a lot of shade around the pools, which made the pool water really warm. Randy, the owner, was extremely nice and easy to work with. We have vacationed at Blue Mountain Beach for many years, and love the local restaurants. This was our first stay at Sanctuary at Redfish, and we all agreed we would want to come back again next year.
