We stayed at Barefoot Beach Resort with our family in September 2016. The resort was great for all ages, we ranged from 7 months to 64 years old. We all enjoyed this immaculately clean, bright, sunny, beach decorated, large 2 bedroom condo. The resort is on the intercoastal waterway but also just steps and a short beach access away from...

We were blown away at how quiet this place was. Outside of the first night we did not hear a peep out of anyone. It was a wonderful change of pace from a hotel experience. The rooms were clean although our bed was rock hard. We did have to change rooms because of an AC fail but they did end... More

We stayed here for just over a week from the end of August to the 4th September. We had 2 apartments, one 2 bedroom apartment and one 1 bedroom apartment. When we arrived we were very impressed, the apartments were lovely. The pool looks quite small in the pictures we had seen so it was a surprise when we saw... More

Thanks for taking time to write about your recent stay with us. We're sorry that Tropical Storm Hermine caused mischief off and onshore and left guests without a few days of sunshine and beach time.

This resort is located in a wonderful spot, right between the Gulf and the Intracoastal Waterway. The grounds are spectacularly groomed, tropical and lush. This was our second trip. The vibe is so laid back and easy, perfect for couples like us. Mornings provided gorgeous sunrises over the Intracoastal, and the sunsets on the Gulf are stunning. We loved the... More

Barefoot Beach is Resort is a lovely place to spend a relaxing vacation on the Gulf. Our condo was super nice, the grounds amazingly immaculate, and the beach is right across the street with private access. Truly a great spot in Indian Shores!

Very Clean and condo came with all basic items needed for our stay. Setting was ideal with a short walk to the beach and area restaurants and shops. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and will return in the future.

My son, boyfriend and I booked a short getaway here last week in one of the 2-bedroom condos -- my 8-year-old's first vacation outside of Minnesota, and our first getaway in a few years. My parents decided to join us for their 26th anniversary. The second we got to the resort, we were impressed. Beautiful location, grounds, pool - Perfect!... More

We had four guys, two dads and two teenage boys. We found out one of the units, E-207, had an additional pullout bed in the sunroom so everyone had their own bed. Sweet!
