Stunning penthouse with wraparound balconies, views, pool, hot tub & gym

This absolutely stunning four-bedroom, four-bath penthouse condo offers the finest panoramic views of the wild beauty of Back Bay, from two private balconies on two separate floors. The sought-after Sanctuary Condo Development is right on sunny Sandbridge Beach. You can take the elevator down and walk right out to the beach! Also located on-premises are three big sparkling in-ground pools including the Cabana Bar pool located just off the beach with a swim-up cabana bar. Our guests love to lounge in this pool with a view of the beach and enjoy a cold beverage. The fishing pier and children's park are located just south of the building.

This amazing condo offers two primary suites, one on the first floor and one upstairs. The top floor is all dedicated to the spacious penthouse primary suite with glorious vaulted ceilings, luxurious glass, and tile main bathroom with jetted tub, separate glass and tile shower, and private water closet. Step out on the extra-large private balcony for amazing views of Back Bay, wildlife, and sunsets all perched high above the fifth floor. Downstairs on the main living level, you'll love the bright open and spacious floor plan from the well-equipped kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and more beautiful Back Bay views just off the dining area. Dining seats for 10; eight seats at the dining table with four more at the kitchen bar. Gather in the family room after a hot day at the beach and enjoy high end, comfortable furniture, large TV (cable and WiFi provided), more beautiful bay views from the two walls of windows/sliding glass doors, or step out onto the extra-large wrap around/corner balcony. This is one of the only corner penthouse retreats available for rentals offering these amazing 'L-shaped' balconies and floor plans.

The first-floor primary suite offers an en suite bath and a large TV. The bunk room is made for your younger beach lovers with one twin over a double bunk bed, one separate twin bed, and a TV. The fourth bedroom also pairs as the media room with two hide-a-beds that pull out into two twin beds. Also in this room is a large TV on a media cabinet. Even on a rainy day, there is plenty to do locally.

The unit is great and we would stay in it again. Since we were staying in January it was a 5 minute ride to a small grocery store and 15 minute ride to restaurants as well as all other types of stores. The views of the bay are amazing and there is plenty of space to enjoy each others company yet also have some privacy when wanted.

Let's start with check-in. Arrived late and no instructions. We finally heard back from the maintenance person (assuming). He told us we had to drive back to the office (18 miles and 30 minute round trip). We finally grabbed our packet and made it to the property. Upon entry we saw an 8 x 10 piece of paper stating where to go for late arrivals. I looked in the window but couldn't see the print as a light was shining on it. I wish that would have been placed in the window or kiosk on other building and or state that in the email instructions. I packed light because I noticed it had a washer dryer unit. I put a small load in dryer and it took over three hours to get mostly dry. My daughter was unable to use the shower in the lower bathroom (one at end of hall past washer dryer). Shower head sprays water everywhere. Main bath shower door needs a new seal as current one is torn. Would be nice to have a hair dryer and curling iron on each level. There is no curling iron on site. The only door we could use to enter the building was the main door with code provided. Swiping card in garage and side door would not allow entry. Multiple slats on patio blinds are missing. Dishwasher needs a new silverware basket as many pieces just fall through the holes. Would also be nice to have more trash bags and pods for both washer and dishwasher available.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit, Todd. We will get the check-in process as streamlined as possible, and maintenance will check on the dryer, shower head, shower door, blinds, and dishwasher. Hopefully we can have a chance to impress you in the future.

We loved the HOT water for the showers! The 4 bathrooms were nice , as well as the short walk to beach and pretty sunset views. Cozy gas fireplace and parking garage for vehicles was nice .
Kitchenware badly needs updated , beds were not real comfortable , and the check-in was a disaster- make sure you get a clear answer of where & when to get your keys! We enjoyed our stay tho.
Manager response:
Jenny, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! We're pleased you enjoyed your stay, especially the close proximity to the beach and the sunset views. That said we apologize for the issues that detracted from your stay and shared your feedback with the appropriate parties to they can be remedied. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we hope to host you again.

Sure was nice to have access to beach equipment, chairs, umbrellas, hauling wagon, sand toys. Beautiful condo with lots of room to have the group be together or private time. We really enjoyed the games; bingo and puzzles were a hit.

Place was very clean even the carpet. I was not afraid to let my baby crawl around there. Very spacious. The staff member Bryan was very helpful in helping us during our stay.
