for Brand New 2BR - Steps from the Water, Watch the Dolphin Play!

Wednesday, October 14, 2009 Reviewer: Marlene & Bob K From: Oshawa, Ontario

This is a unique country cottage type condo with a sunroom & your own front yard & white pickett fence. The pool is large with tables and chairs for relaxing. Even though it isn't on the Gulf, the dolfins swim up & down the intercoastal waterway every day. Very close to shopping. Very pleased with the condo. Trudi, the owner is very easy to talk to & very accommodating.

Excellent Condo: Fantastic view and location.

  • 5 of 5
We are British. The Condo overlooks the inland sea waterway, very few do on the Barefoot resort. From the condo's patio area, on a daily basis, we saw dolphins and lots of sea birds including Great Herons and Ospreys. The air con was supplied to each room, including both bedrooms. It easily coped with the humid conditions. There is also a ceiling fan in each room, the air con is controlled by an accurate thermostat. The condo is well appointed, spacious and very clean. We used Trudi's TV, phone and games, thank you! The kids and ourselves loved having free Wi-Fi. It is a short 1 minute walk to the 'Barefoot' pool. The pool is warm, we always got seats/loungers but we did feel the pool should be a little bigger, however, it was August. It was a five minute walk to the fantastic beach. We have never experienced a warmer sea! The car can be parked easily at the rear door of the condo using Trudi's pass. There is a large fridge, cooker and microwave and everything you need to cook. We did have breakfast there every morning but ate out each night. We spent most evening's at either John's Pass or Clearwater, both of which took about 10 minutes to drive. I would say a car is very useful at the condo, although we did notice buses passing. Even though we were in England, Trudi was very easy to deal with. She always replied to e-mails within hours. If you are sending money over to her we used a currency exchange company 'Currencies Direct', (there are others). This avoids the excessive charges applied by British Banks. It took us 2 hours to drive to Universal Studios (approx. 100 miles). Indian Shores is a quiet resort, with quiet beaches. I think if you are young and after a more lively atmosphere you might be better off in Clearwater. There are 3 or 4 laundrettes on the site within 1 minutes walk of the condo. Very useful for keeping your suitcase weights down. Just save your 25 cent pieces up. The office helped us change some money though. They also have lots of leaflets there and can offer advice. Its very tempting to rent a boat whilst there. The nearest company had lots with 200hp engines. They wouldn't let me hire one, because I only have 2 hours experience with a motor boat on the River Thames! If we Brits have certificates of experience I would suggest you take it.

We had a tremendous holiday and would love to return, probably when the teenagers (17 & 13) have flown the nest and we don't have their airfares to pay!

Two weeks of pure sun and fun!

  • 5 of 5
Trudi,

Well we have been home a week now and already miss your lovely condo, it was clean, had plenty of room for us all and we had a great 2 week vacation it was perfect, my husband, children (15 and 20) and mother-in law (81) were very comfortable and felt right at home. Between the beach, pool, and fishing, everyday was fun filled, and the choice to eat in or go out was the hardest decision we had to make, the grills were great, the kitchen had all we needed, and the restaurants were close by, reasonable and had good food too. It was a relaxing fun filled vacation and your condo made it all the more enjoyable. Thank you.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a nice condo with a beautiful view off the back deck, easy access to the beach (about a 3 minute walk if that), excellent location, and a wonderful owner to rent from then look no further.

This was our first time renting from VBRO and it was a great experience. The owner Trudi is extremely friendly, attentive,responsive and organized. I was a bit hesitant about booking a condo from owner, but there were no snags at all and it turned out perfectly. Trudi communicated to us about our stay and sent us a nice packet containing everything we needed to know.

The condo is located in a complex that has some key amenities, such as easy parking, swimming pool, fishing dock and a laundry facility. The actual condo is on the first floor (perfect if you don't want to climb stairs and who does) and in my opinion is situated in a perfect spot. You park right in front of the front door in a small parking area (quiet), and directly out the back door there is a patio (with furniture and an umbrella) where you can sit in the evening shade and look out at an intercoastal waterway, where boats go by infrequently. The kids and I enjoyed fishing about 15 feet from our backdoor (there is also a fishing dock at the complex about 50 yards away), and we actually caught some fish (albeit small but fun), and also a stringray! We saw dolphins and manatees, and at one point a dolphin RIGHT NEXT to the bank.

The inside of the condo was clean and comfortable, with 2 bedrooms, dining area, full kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, stove, and microwave along with plenty of dishes and some basic cooking items. There are TV's (satellite), wireless internet, DVD player, etc. The air conditioning worked wonderfully which was nice after a day at the beach. I liked the layout of the condo and the living room has a sleeper sofa which came in handy for us.

The beach at Indian Shores is a very easy walk, and during our stay it wasn't crowded at all. The sand is nice and the beach seems to go for miles. During our vacation we went to a few different beaches but we liked ours the best since there weren't a lot of people and there didn't seem to be a lot of craziness like at Clearwater. There is quite a bit to do and see in this area and Indian Shores was a great place for us to stay due to the relaxed atmosphere, lack of traffic and central location.

We definitely would return to this area and stay at this condo again. I highly recommend it.

Another Great Barefoot Experience

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at this intercoastal condo during our Spring Break. This unit is one of about a dozen which have a private patio that directly faces the water. The unit is very well maintained with all the kitchen essentials as well as several items to take to the beach or pool. We have stayed at Barefoot Beach many times as this was another fantastic experience. The beds are comfortable and the furnishing are in very good condition. We would highly recommend this unit and would definitely stay here again.

This was our first visit to Barefoot Beach and we were delighted with the resort and this condo. Trudi, the owner, is a pleasure to work with and genuinely wants her guests to enjoy their visit. She was responsive to our emails and questions, and supplied us with a wealth of information about the area and local attractions. If you should need assistance during your stay, her staff is outstanding and located close by.

The location of the condo is the best in the complex. Walk out the back door and you are just steps from the inter-coastal waterway. We spent many hours relaxing on the patio watching the passing boats and occasional dolphins swim by. The only suggestion I would make is that all the waterfront owners remove the dated vegetation surrounding the interior of the patios. Doing so would double the amount of usable space. The waterfront patios are unique and a natural gathering spot, but the existing vegetation makes them a little cramped.

The interior of the condo is roomy and comfortable. The king sized bed in the master bedroom and the two recliners in the living room are wonderful amenities, especially if you are staying for an extended period of time. The pictures on the VRBO site accurately reflect the interior of the condo. There were paper products and some dry goods provided to get you started.

The complex itself is clean and attractive. The large, heated pool is just steps from the condo. There are plenty of chairs, loungers and tables. Most of the guests we met have been coming to Barefoot Beach for years. Everyone is friendly and welcoming even to the newbies.

We will definitely be back and have already recommended Trudi's condo to our family
and friends. Thank you again, Trudi, for sharing your condo with us. We look forward to our next visit.

nice little getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable and clean 2BR unit. I've stayed at several units in this 'resort' before and this was definitely one of the cleanest. Love the view of the intercoastal and dock access! Owner is very nice and responsive. There were a couple minor glitches like lamps not working in one bedroom, but otherwise, it was great! Kitchen needs a good chopping knife but otherwise has everything and more that you would possibly need. Great spot for a getaway!
