This condo in the Cypress Bend section of Barefoot Resort was absolutely perfect! The owner was very professional and courteous throughout the entire rental process. She quickly responded to all my emails and sent very detailed information about the rental process, the condo itself, and pertinent local information.
The condo was very clean and comfortable. Very spacious too.The beds were sooooo comfortable! Plenty of extra pillows and blankets. Lots of bath towels too! The kitchen had all the necessary items for cooking meals. TVs with DVD/VCR combos in both bedrooms and the living room. The condo was very quiet too. I never heard any noise from the neighbors on either side or below us. The pool is right next to the building, along with 2 grills. There is also a larger pool at the main Barefoot Resort building. This is a quick and convenient drive. The shuttle will take you there, but it is much easier to drive. Parking for the pool is located next to the towers, in front of the restaurant.
Barefoot Resorts does offer a shuttle to the beach and the shuttle stop is right next to this building. We did not use the shuttle because it was easy enough to find parking at the beach. The beach is approximately 2 miles away, but it is an quick and easy drive. There is not much public parking in the Windy Hill section of the beach, but you can drive a little bit north to Cherry Grove or Crescent Beach and find a lot more parking. This might take you 5-8 minutes.
This condo is away from the commotion of the beach and main streets, but conveniently located so you can reach those places in minutes. Very quiet and family friendly!
