“Dream holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We just came back from our holiday on Monday . Stayed there for 7 nights with our 4 children. Everything was excellent. The staff very friendly, the condos are clean and very nice, the location and the beach are beautiful. From the backyard of the swimming pool you can see dolphins playing...
It was dream holiday!!!!!!!

We booked Barefoot for a week as part of a Virgin holidays/Travel City Direct (UK) package. We'd had a week in Orlando and arrived after a day at Busch Gardens which is on route to the east coast.
We were in need of a relaxing, chilled out week and that is exactly what we got! After a minor mix up with our booking we had one night in a downstairs beach side condo which was lovely then we moved to an upstairs, inland waterway view condo. It was perfect. The staff were really helpful and lovely. The condo was very comfortable and the view was amazing. we also appreciated the free Wi-Fi as we travelled with our children they could keep in touch with their friends. The pool area was great and all the other guests were really friendly.
The quiet beach is just across the road with soft white sand and amazing sunsets. We had a car so drove up to Clearwater and down to Johns Pass, it was a great location.
The Saltrock Grill next door was also a bonus once we'd realised we needed to book, their early dining offer was very good value.
We would definitely recommend Barefoot Beach, I just wish Florida was nearer or we'd be back every year!

Thank you so much for reviewing your recent stay with us. We always love our U.K. visitors and glad you were able to combine the fun and excitement of the theme parks with the peace and natural beauty of a beach holiday.

We appreciate your compliments to our staff and thank you for your patience on the room move. The intercoastal view is so beautiful, isn't it? Nice that you enjoyed Salt Rock - one of our favorites!

We invite you to stay in touch with us on Facebook at Barefoot Beach Resort, and we look forward to when you can return.

As a previous reviewer wrote, this is not a resort. They are individually owned condos managed by the office or privately, but they are lovely and in the best location. Intercostal waterway on one side you can fish, paddle board or kayak off the dock or walk directly across the street to the beach. My rental had bikes, boogie boards, beach towels, and chairs and a lovely patio table and umbrella to have morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. There is a restaurant next door so if you don't want to drive anywhere you don't have to. The kitchens are all equipped if you prefer to cook. Only 40 minutes from Tampa airport. Gail the manager was the best!

Room Tip: Get a downstairs unit with a patio

Thank you so much for writing such nice compliments about Barefoot! We're truly pleased you were able to sneak away from beautiful N.C. to visit us!

Glad you were able to enjoy the amenities that we offer right outside our door - fishing, kayaking and more. And of course the beach is just across the street! Salt Rock is an excellent restaurant - we love that it is so close -- for our guests as well as ourselves!

Please stay in touch with us on Facebook: Barefoot Beach Resort, and know that we'd love to
have you return for more fun - just as soon as you can!

I chose this place based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. Our room was tastefully decorated and clean. Pool was beautiful and we were a short walk from the beach. Lovely patio was perfect for morning coffee. I would definitely go back!

We stayed (2 adults and one 5 year old) in a one bedroom unit, facing the water. The condo was nicely furnished and the staff was very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed the location (about 10 minutes from John's Pass and about 10 minutes away from Clearwater). The beach across the street was beautiful as well. In the evening we would often see dolphins and enjoy some fishing. My son loved the pool and was actually able to learn how to swim. We used the kitchen and BBQ'S a lot. The only negative thing I have to say is that the bed sheets did not fit properly on the bed and that was annoying. Other than that, the week was amazing and just went by way too fast!

Room Tip: Ask for a unit on the first floor to be able to sit outside and eat outside. Units on the second fl...

How nice of you to take time to review your recent stay here! We were so excited to read that your son learned to swim while here....what a milestone! We're glad that your family enjoyed the 1-bedroom unit and we thank you for the comment on the sheets, which we will address with housekeeping.

Glad you enjoyed the beach, saw some dolphins, and were able to explore John's Pass and our beach community.

We found Mark's condo on road front very good indeed, everything you need including computer which is great for online check in for return home trip. Would recommend it highly, Plenty of good restaurants nearby and so handy for the beach.

We rented two condos, one at the front and one overlooking the river at the back. the Condo we were in had not been cleaned properly and the bathroom was quite shabby, and the management did arrange for a cleaner to come in and hoover around the carpets in the bedrooms. Other than this issue we were very pleased. Location was excellent for the beach, although we did miss out on being able to walk to shops and restaraunts. Would recommend The Conch Republic for a very good meal.

Condos were well equippepd with beach chairs, etc. which saved us a fortune as they were not readily available to hire on the beach.

Great holiday.
