Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us! We had a fabulous time and would love to come back again next year! We stayed at the condo 2 weeks ago with another couple and had a wonderful time. We try to plan a trip with our friends every year, and this year the husbands won and got their choice, a golf resort! Although my girlfriend and I aren’t big golfers ourselves, there were plenty of attractions nearby to keep us occupied. Besides beaches, miniature golf courses (which are more of the level my girlfriend and I are at!), there is also some great shopping spots and great restaurants....overall a beautiful and relaxing place for a getaway.
As for the condo itself, my first impression of the place was ‘cute and cozy’, and more importantly, clean. We were on the ground floor, with a nice little walk-out patio where we sat and drank our coffee in the morning while enjoying the beautiful view. The interior was bright and clean and equipped with all the essentials, like dishes, soaps, cleaning products, etc. Anything else we needed, including groceries, was nothing more than a short trip away.
If you’re looking for a nearby restaurant, I recommend Damon’s. They had fun happy hours on the beach, and some of the best Prime Rib we’ve had. The restaurant on premise at the driving range was good too! As far as the golf, our husbands thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They said some of the courses were a bit challenging, but let’s just say they’re no Jack Nicklaus!
The owner of the condo was very pleasant to work with and very accommodating. Aside from general essentials, there was a phone for local calling, dvd player and wireless internet access. (unfortunately, I had to check emails on vacation, so this was handy)
Overall, our experience was great! It was our first time renting from HOME AWAY, and our first time at Barefoot Resort, and we would definitely do it again. The entire experience has been wonderful and we are looking forward to doing it again.
I would not hesitate to recommend this condo and its location to anyone looking for a quiet, clean and well maintained location in North Myrtle Beach. In fact, I told other friends of ours and they are looking to book at the end of the summer.
Barefoot is a beautiful complex but this rental was lacking many items that others included. We didn't arrive until 7pm (which is what we told owner but the mgmt co he hired (local neighbor) seemed peeved for making her wait around since she wanted to go to dinner with her dad - she called numerous times that day but my cell phone was off so she called hubby's cell).
Here are the problems we encountered: the WiFi did not work on premise so I had to purchase a ntwk cable to get internet (was not ideal since we had 2-laptops and had to share network cable & couldn't work at the same time). The pots/pans & utensils could have been cleaned better(dried egg was left on/in them). My husband found a shard of glass in-between the couch cushions and cut himself with it. The masterbedroom bed was not latched properly which made the one side not comfortable (and fear of getting thrown from the bed everytime you climbed off it). There weren't any bathmats in either bathroom, and I fell in the tub the first day I was there. When we called and texted the owner/managing company about this and other problems, we never received any return phone calls (not even to see how I was after falling in the tub). The phone that was provided on premise for local calls did not work (fortunately we have cellphones). It would have been nice to have received a binder of local surroundings (restaurants, churches, stores, HOSPITALS, etc..) instead of relying on the free travel books we picked up at Bi-Lo and other local stores. Also a quick return phone call from the managing company/owner to see how the trip was going and if we needed anything (managing company/lady offered to lend us her umbrella for the beach but never even called us back).
My family really loves the area (lots to do and see and beautiful beaches), not to mention the great restaurants in Myrtle Beach, but we WOULD NOT stay at this rental until these problems get corrected (especially the lack of customer service from owner/managing company). Many promises were made but not followed through. Next time we'll think twice and read reviews and look for recent recommendations. This vacation was ruined and I'm still in pain from falling on the first day. Eventhough I'm in pain, I made sure to clean this place better than I found it, and now I'm waiting to hear from the owner about my refund! And yet, no return phone calls or e-mails.
One of the best deals in Barefoot Resort one the first floor of the Ironwood community. Out the back door brings you to the Greg Norman 14th hole. Barefoot is the home to 4 golf courses Love, Fazio, Norman and Dye that will challenge golfers of all levels.
