We stayed at Barefoot through GDV in units 211&109. The units were clean and hit most of our boxes. What it didn’t have was two bathrooms, porch or patio and in unit laundry; all of which we have had at most other GDV facilities. The gorgeous beach was right across the

My sister-in-law and I stayed at Barefoot beach resort early March of 2019. It has a private access to the beach with enough parking space for each guest. The newly renovated pool area is a big plus. The room we stayed was facing the pool area with only one hickup that it was

The 2 of us had unit 201. It was so clean, everything worked, had everything needed for our short break. The free beach chairs and umbrella were a nice surprise. The beach is right across the street. A couple restaurants within walking distance (1 mile), otherwise Uber/Lyft. We

Great location on main road. Easy Beach access directly across the street, beach less than 5 minute walk. Easy to deal with admin, off street parking. Apartment was a nice 3 bed. The bathroom could have done with remodeling but the rest was perfect. Affordable for the location

What’s the cheapest way for a group of 5 to get here with luggage from the airport in Tampa?
Take one of the shuttle buses right from the airport. They will let you off at Barefoot.

Do any of the condos offer beach views? How close is the grocery store?
All the reviewers have given you good input. We have a private beach entrance directly across the street and it is literally a two minute walk from our office. As far as shopping, just hop the trolley if you don't want to drive and you can access several convenience or grocery stores. Plus, right next door is the fabulous Island Way Grille, a wonderful restaurant!

Has this area been badly affected by Red tide?
Not when we visited or before we visited. I do see there are blooms on the news. I’d say look at NOAA website to start. Maybe even local NWS offices, as well as Mote Marine and Clearwater Marine Aquarium might have info.
