The Sanctuary by the Sea development is on the South side of 30A, located directly on the beach.

Our unit is on the back leg and faces directly south, directly towards the ocean/beach, but looks out over the preserve and lake, with the beach in the distance.

Our condo was perfect for our family vacation. It was comfortable and we felt at home. We would rent this unit again for future vacations.

Wonderful gathering place with lots of variety and plenty of space.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well kept and secure. We enjoyed the zero entry swimming pool and hot tub. The beach staff were very accommodating and friendly. We enjoyed having the umbrellas and chairs available each day. It was nice having the convenience of the lake with the paddle boards and kayaks and fishing options. There was plenty of seating for visiting and eating in the unit. I enjoyed having coffee and oatmeal in the mornings on the patio. The chairs and couches were so comfortable. It was so relaxing. Publix was 5 minutes away, so convenient. The kitchen was so nice to prepare meals. Our last night we all went to the Blue Mountain ice cream parlor. The ice cream was delicious and we enjoyed just hanging out there together. The staff at Santuary By the Sea were very friendly and helpful, even the painters were very polite. The virtual golf experience was quite impressive. A fun time was had by all and wonderful memories were made. Thank you especially to the property manager, Carmen, and the others who were so helpful on the phone. I got immediate response to all my questions and issues. I would highly recommend this property.

Really Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious property tucked away in an aptly named complex. It really was a sanctuary during the spring break hoopla. We were able to enjoy the festive Seaside activities then get away... back to our quiet area. The unit was nicely decorated with very high quality furnishings and Viking kitchen appliances. TV's were large and plentiful. The unit location was the most distant from everything in the complex and the beach access, which I thought was going to be problematic but wasn't at all. It actually added to the privacy. The lake was a nice addition and the kayaking was fun. The only thing I could possibly nitpick was some of the remotes didn't have batteries and I also had to teach everyone how to use the TV's as each had 3 remotes... it was a bit confusing.

The complex is very very secure.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door, we loved this condo! The views were spectacular. The unit was beautifully furnished. And there was plenty of room for our group of twelve! Private beach with chairs and umbrellas, and kayaks and paddle boards all included with rental! Half way between Destin and Panama City...close enough to drive to, but far enough away to enjoy the peacefulness! Without hesitation, we would stay in this unit again! Thank you for such a wonderful memory.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family has enjoyed this condo so much, we've been several times! Kids love the pools and the beach. The whole property is a quiet relaxed environment, and this unit is well appointed even for rainy days. We had one day of solid rain on our last trip and the media room was great for eliminating boredom. I would recommend to anyone wanting a getaway that's still close to everything!

It has it all!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this beautifully furnished condo for 3 nights (not long enough) for our 5 grandchildren and their parents. The quiet location in the complex was great -- felt like we were in a house instead! The kids loved exploring the lake with a convenient launching area and jumping in a nearby pool (of two) as much as boogie boarding the waves at the beach. Having your kayaks and paddleboards was a plus, as were the complimentary chairs and umbrellas set up on the beach. We had plenty of room to be together or have some space to ourselves. The furnishings/appliances were the BEST - all the way down to the porch furniture! I would highly recommend this spot.
