My husband I originally booked to stay for a two night romantic getaway at the beach. This place was recommended by a family member who has stayed a number of times here. The apartment was clean, with lovely furnishings and everything you needed. Great location as the beach was across the road and next door to the fabulous Salt Rock... More

Well... This place is great if you like to get away from everything! Very calm and pleasant, clean and well furnished. Our adventure happened at airport with delay more than 7 hours and getting by resort around 2 am. My kid was hysterical when we arrived and everything was closed! She thought we will be sleeping in the car, silly!... More

we booked this condo with an airfare/car rental/condo package deal. We were mislead because the photos and explanation touted waterfront. By no means is this waterfront! If you walk way to the back, you can see the canal, but without a fishing license, what's the use? The condo was very clean and comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance (across...

Thank you for taking time to write about your experience here at Barefoot. We'd like to address your concern that we mislead you. Our website says "Set out on five acres of waterfront property overlooking the intracoastal...." - and that is accurate. At the rear of our property is the intracoastal as well as our private dock.

Booked our trip through Allegiant Air website and we were very pleased! Located in a nice quiet location, directly across the street from public beach access path and crosswalk. The room was very nice and clean. Second floor units lack private balconies but we survived!! Staff was also very pleasant and provided us with beach chairs and towels. I would... More

This was a great find-I booked the trip through Allegiant Air and was a little worried about some of the reviews but the condo was adorable and spic and span clean. It had everything we needed for basic meals and cleaning. There were chairs, an umbrella and sand toys to use, gas grills around the site that are cleaned by... More

The resort has immediate access to the beach just across the street. Private, not a busy area, with great views and access. The resort itselt was clean and well taken care of. Of course, you always find a few minor things, but it couldn't take away from the amazing experience. The staff was willing to help in anyway and it... More

We booked our trip through Allegiant Airlines and got a great deal on our flights and 5 nights at this resort. We have had bad experiences in the past with booking through outside agencies, but were extremely pleased with Barefoot Beach Resort. The condos are a good size, have a full kitchen with dishes and cookware, very clean, and conveniently... More

We stayed here the first week of January 2015. Our room was very clean and quiet. It was a short walk across the street to the beach. The room had a complete kitchen which we really only used for breakfast, but could have created an entire meal if we wanted. The location was much quieter than the Clearwater area north... More

We stayed here as a last minute addition to our vacation to Orlando. We decided to squeeze in a few beach days, and found this location. Our condo was fantastic, clean, and more spacious than I expected. The only downfall we had (which is not their fault) is that we had two vehicles and you can only park one at... More

Condo was nice for the most part. Biggest complaint was the bed. Advertised as a queen but more like a full. Had 3 inches of box spring sticking out from under the mattress. Mattress was also covered in a waterproof pad so anytime you moved you would hear the crinkling. If they upgrade the beds to kings it would be... More
