Spent 2 nights here in a 1 bedroom apartment with water view. I understand all the units here are privately owned and we certainly struck lucky with ours. It was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The beach was a short stroll away and our view of the intracoastal waterway was stunning. If returning to Indian Shores, I wouldn't hesitate...

Great accommodations. Nice condo and heated pool, which was great on the unseasonably cool days. Its nice to have a kitchen and grills available to cook in a few nights. Overall had a blast, location was great with beach right across the street.

I recently stayed here with my mom in one of the 2 bedroom suites. The first thing you notice when you walk in is how clean, bright and roomy the suite is. The kitchen has all the utensils, dishes and pans that you need whether you are cooking with the stove or microwave or one of the gas grills on...

Thank you! We're so pleased you took time to share your thoughts on your stay here so others can come to know what to expect. Ultimately, we're so glad you enjoyed being with us and the beautiful Indian Shores Beach right across the street. You're right, the mini-golf and Salt Rock Grill are great "neighbors" for us, and the trolley...

My wife and I took our 7 year old grandson on a short 2 night / 3 day vacation. We chose a 1st floor condo (Building F 112) because we thought it would be nice to sit and relax on the patio. The condo was very clean and exceeded our expectations. Being provided 2 beach chairs and a beach umbrella...

I loved so many things about this place. The condo itself was awesome (we got a one-bedroom). It had everything you could possibly need--full kitchen, dining area, living room with entertainment system, an office area, bedroom with TV, beautiful patio with furniture and an umbrella. I loved that there was so much storage throughout the condo, too. And we were...

Thank you so much for your nice compliments about your stay here! We're so pleased we were a good choice for you to enjoy the beach and area surroundings. You are right - our guests visit us because of our quiet, tranquil setting -- yet we're minutes away from nightlife at John's Pass, Treasure Island and other resort areas. Your...

We had a great week at this place. It was easy to walk across the street to the beach. The complex is clean and well maintained. The pool area is not fancy, but nice! We were glad we stayed at Barefoot Beach!

We just got back from our week vacation at Barefoot Beach Resort. We had no complaints. We traveled with our 9 year old and 11 month old sons. It was a great family resort. Great pool and location. We were in building D top floor. We had a deluxe room; no patio, but outside our sunroom window we had a...

Location is across the street from the beach, about 3/4 block walk. "Waterview" is the channel for boats, pleasant but not exciting, to the rear of the property. Management's justification for the lack of view (we had only front and rear window views of parking lots) lack of any balcony or patio, as their version of "Deluxe". This condo would...

Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us. We would like to respond to a couple of your issues: *. It is not the case that lower quality condos are the only ones available to those booking through OTA's. Reservations are assigned based upon location and the term "Deluxe" refers to the location designation in the resort....

Quiet, Mature People, Insanely Relaxing. Everything you could ever want and need is within a 5 to 10 minute walk or drive. The beaches always seem to have LOTS of space. I bike every day on vacation, Gulf Blvd has wide bike/walking lanes on both sides of the street.

This property was top-notch. The condo we stayed at was tastefully decorated, close to the beach and restaurants. We thought it was a great place! We have already booked the same unit for 2 weeks next year.
