The reservationist April sold me on this location. The room was very nicely set up in a beach atmosphere. It is only a 2 minute walk to the beach, the pool is spacious and inviting. Sitting on the patio in the back of the room is very relaxing eating breakfast, or just having a little down time.

Spent 2 nights here in a 1 bedroom apartment with water view. I understand all the units here are privately owned and we certainly struck lucky with ours. It was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The beach was a short stroll away and our view of the intracoastal waterway was stunning. If returning to Indian Shores, I wouldn't hesitate...

Great accommodations. Nice condo and heated pool, which was great on the unseasonably cool days. Its nice to have a kitchen and grills available to cook in a few nights. Overall had a blast, location was great with beach right across the street.

I recently stayed here with my mom in one of the 2 bedroom suites. The first thing you notice when you walk in is how clean, bright and roomy the suite is. The kitchen has all the utensils, dishes and pans that you need whether you are cooking with the stove or microwave or one of the gas grills on...

You're right, the mini-golf and Salt Rock Grill are great "neighbors" for us, and the trolley...

My wife and I took our 7 year old grandson on a short 2 night / 3 day vacation. We chose a 1st floor condo (Building F 112) because we thought it would be nice to sit and relax on the patio. The condo was very clean and exceeded our expectations. Being provided 2 beach chairs and a beach umbrella...

I loved so many things about this place. The condo itself was awesome (we got a one-bedroom). It had everything you could possibly need--full kitchen, dining area, living room with entertainment system, an office area, bedroom with TV, beautiful patio with furniture and an umbrella. I loved that there was so much storage throughout the condo, too. And we were...

Thank you so much for your nice compliments about your stay here! We're so pleased we were a good choice for you to enjoy the beach and area surroundings.

We had a great week at this place. It was easy to walk across the street to the beach. The complex is clean and well maintained. The pool area is not fancy, but nice! We were glad we stayed at Barefoot Beach!

We just got back from our week vacation at Barefoot Beach Resort. We had no complaints. We traveled with our 9 year old and 11 month old sons. It was a great family resort. Great pool and location.

Location is across the street from the beach, about 3/4 block walk. "Waterview" is the channel for boats, pleasant but not exciting, to the rear of the property. Management's justification for the lack of view (we had only front and rear window views of parking lots) lack of any balcony or patio, as their version of "Deluxe". This condo would...

Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us. We would like to respond to a couple of your issues: *. It is not the case that lower quality condos are the only ones available to those booking through OTA's.

Quiet, Mature People, Insanely Relaxing. Everything you could ever want and need is within a 5 to 10 minute walk or drive. The beaches always seem to have LOTS of space. I bike every day on vacation, Gulf Blvd has wide bike/walking lanes on both sides of the street.

"Insanely relaxing"....we love that! Thank you -- that's just how we want our guests to feel - that they can enjoy a tranquil setting to unwind and enjoy nature's beauty.
