Reviewed 6 March 2017

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.

"Insanely relaxing"....we love that! Thank you -- that's just how we want our guests to feel - that they can enjoy a tranquil setting to unwind and enjoy nature's beauty. You're right - Indian Shores Beach is not as crowded as our neighbors to the north or south - but we certainly enjoy those same brilliant sunsets! Hope you'll be...

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.

It's our first time here and our first time as snow birds. Talking to other guests we may have over paid. With that being said, our unit is clean except a few utensils. The shower has two water heads which was nice. The furniture is all new and the location is great. The intercostal is out our back door. With...

Thank you for staying with us and taking time to comment on your stay. We're so pleased you enjoyed the facility and its closeness to beautiful Indian Shores Beach. You're right - with the dock out back for fishing, a welcoming pool and special touches like grills, our guests often compliment that we have everything they need. As for the...

Easy to find, great location - near grocery, restaurants, and activities - as well as the beach. Perfect location to chill or go for a ride down the gulf coast of Florida. Staff was professional and inviting. We would consider staying here again.

The resort is easy to find off Gulf Boulevard, the main road and reception is a small room just off the street. The staff were excellent and helpful. We were lucky enough to have a huge 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the waterway. The apartment was well equipped with very good wifi and tvs in each room. There is a large...

This was the perfect location on the Gulf of Mexico, in my opinion. We are close to everything. Grocery, restaurants, activities, the beach, swimming pool, fishing pier, access to Interstate roads are all close.

Spent 10 days at the Barefoot Beach Resort. Terrific location. Causeway in the back. 50 feet to the gulf in the front. Clean, quiet, very nice condo. Can't wait to stay there again. If there was a downside, it would be that the condo that we stayed in was a two bedroom with only one bathroom. Oh my, we survived!...

Always hate leaving this place. So peaceful and relaxing, people are so friendly. Enjoy waking up in the morning to watch the dolphins. If you enjoy a adult beverage you have to walk down the street to Maufaufer for a drink, nothing like you have ever seen before. We will be back soon

The location is perfect and the resort layout makes it look smaller and like a neighbourhood. The condo had everything we dreamed of. The kitchenette is well equipped.
