The most awful place we have ever stayed. Things inside the house were broken when we arrived, such as the dishwasher. Some of the lights wouldn't work, furnature was dirty and had rips. Parking was a joke. We had a twelve passinger van and the asigned parking place was really small. We rented two units and should have had two... More

Flalizard, Owner at Barrett Beach Bungalows, responded to this review

I have owned this property since 2002 and have never had so much damages from one family ever. Their kids broke the dishwasher latch, hung off the lower kitchen cabinet solid wood door and snapped it in half, locked a door then barreled through the door pulling all the wood trim off the door frame. I had to keep $150... More

The stay was perfect! Relaxing is what we wanted and that is what we got! We were in our old stomping grounds...so we knew what was what. One trip to the Grocery store and we were set till we had to leave. I'd say one or all of us will be back and possibly with family next time. This was... More

We truly loved the beach bungalows and being right on the beach. We had a very large group and rented four cottages (Mermaid, Dolphin, Lobster & Seahorse). Having a bonfire right on the beach was perfect. We had many young children with us - and in the evening there is not much to do and because we were in a... More

We stayed in the "Mermaid Mansion" back in March with our two boys (14 and 10) and we found the location to be #1 feature. Being able to step outside and take your morning coffee on the beach or the small private patio was awesome. The pool was heated (which was necessary in March) and served as a good alternative...

We had a wonderful vacation here. Liz the manager was so friendly and accommodating . It is a very cute cottage. Very tiki chic and homey . The beach was beautiful and so was the property. My kids loved playing with Liz's very well behaved dogs and Fergie another guests dog. We had a Bon fire our last night which... More

We stay at Barrett Beach Bungalows often and absolutely love it there. The memories we have made really are priceless. Our children have grown up with the desire to go back each year. We all love playing in the powder white sand, swimming in the pool, taking walks into town, bringing our own bikes and going downtown, kayaking, etc.I could... More

We really enjoyed our week at the "Lobster Shack". The place is clean, quiet and has everything you need. Pool is clean and the beachfront is absolute perfection. We went in February and there were times walking where we were the only one for miles. Will definitely return. Indian Shores is our favorite of all the towns along the peninsula.

As I look out at the foot of snow which fell today in Pennsylvania, I'm counting the days until we return to our bungalow for the sixth year. Can't wait to see Liz again and settle in to the lobster shack. Absolutely love the beach, which is never crowded, the accommodations, the quiet town and the proximity to lots of... More

For the first time ever, my wife and I decided to spend Christmas away from the bone-chilling cold of Ontario in Florida. We chose the Lobster Shack at Barrett Bungalows for a 2 week stay (Dec 21 to Jan 4 - 2014). It is a small bungalow, steps from the beautiful Indian Shores beach in a nicely treed niche along...

My wife and I along with our Terrier Jesse and Shi Tzu Luigi stayed in the Dolphin Den cottage Oct 31-Nov 4. This was our first visit to Barrett Bungalows and we loved every minute of it. Our "Boys" were so excited to be there because they almost never get to go to the beach with us. And we all... More
