My family and I stayed here in August 2016. The property is great and it was very quite when we went....although one of the tenets told us it was abnormally quite for this time of year. I did have some problems with wifi....due to the property being surrounded by trees. The pool area is great and you can catch a...

Stayed in unit 3113 - fantastic. This is a great place to stay. It's true that you don't have direct beach access, but you can see it and it's a short boat ride. The boat will come and get you whenever you want. We actually did do the walk once and it wasn't that bad (even with little kids). The...

My family vacations every summer in Blue Mt. Beach, but this was our first time staying at Sanctuary at Redfish. I was a little nervous about the location not being directly on the beach, but my anxiety was lifted as soon as we stepped foot on the property. The condo itself was amazing - so upscale and nice! The parking...

We loved our stay at the Sanctuary at Redfish. Tons to do right on site and without the crowds. The condo and view were amazing!!! We rented through Newman-Dailey and they were extremely helpful. Sunset watching around the pool is a must do.

Sanctuary has a lot going for it, like its more secluded location, the beautiful views looking out over the lake to the Gulf, and the size of the condos themselves (they are really big for condos). But the pools are the best part! We stayed there 3 nights with friends (couples) in a 3-bedroom condo. The condo was huge and...

We had an awesome time at Redfish Village. We stayed in Unit 411 and it was lovely. The beach service and covered parking is a great perk. My boys loved the pool and the playground was an extra bonus. We would highly recommend this condo.

This is a top notch place. The condo is wonderful and well furnished, the staff is very accommodating, and the pools are over the top. We had a cabana and it was nice to be able to slip in and catch a soccer match on the tv in the ac while the wife was watching the kids by the pool....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Spacious balconies overlook the lake and view the Gulf of Mexico, while walking trails lead to picturesque gazebos perfect for watching blue herons soar by. The pool deck consists of three tiered pools, two jacuzzi's, a fire pit, four grills and poolside cabanas. The interior of each vacation rental features attention to detail and unsurpassed craftsmanship. Ten foot ceilings, granite counters, upgraded appliances and master suites with jacuzzi bathtubs are among the amenities.
