The Barefoot Bungalow is a tastefully decorated beach home just outside of Gulf Place with direct beach access to the Ed Walline Beach Park with restrooms, showers and covered picnic tables. This private home has one of the closest beach accesses, a 4-5 minute walk. No more long walks up and down 30-A to find your beach access. Additionally, we have rented two beach chairs and an umbrella through Southern Chair Rentals that will be set up at this beach access each morning and reserved for your use during your stay.
Our home offers great rates for the space. It's perfect for two families with children AND the grandparents. You get the best of both worlds in that you are a short 3-5 minute walk to shopping, dining and the beach but you can retreat to a quiet and private community. Your children can ride bikes in the gated cove. Use the wagon or beach caddy to carry chairs, coolers and beach toys.
The Barefoot Bungalow consists of 4 bedrooms with private, full baths and televisions. Each floor has a spacious balcony with seating and a table. New bed comforters have been added throughout the house.
The 4 bedrooms are configured as follows:
2 master suites with king beds
1 suite with a queen bed
1 suite with 4 twin trundle beds
This home features a well-stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops to make cooking for your crew a pleasure. If you don’t want to cook inside, use the new gas grill that's on the back patio. The open dining and living room provide a large dining room table and barstools for comfortably seating 8-12, a sofa that pulls out to sleep an additional 2 on its queen mattress, a 55' flat-screen LED television that you can watch from any point on the main floor and high speed internet/WiFi. The first floor also features a half bath and washer/dryer. You will have access to the owner's shed which contains bikes, beach chairs, a beach caddy, wagon and beach toys. You can use the bikes that are provided to explore the numerous nature trails.
There are many great restaurants in close range such as Stinky's, Sergio's, The Red Bar and La Playa. The new Publix grocery store is 3 miles away on Highway 98. The Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club, an 18-hole semi-private course, is within a half mile from the house. It is the only course in the Destin area with two holes backing up to the Gulf of Mexico. Golf Magazine described the Santa Rosa Golf Club as 'The Purest Golf in the Florida Panhandle'. The club was named the 'Readers Choice' award by Florida Golf Magazine.
The Santa Rosa community will remind you of the Florida of yesteryear, a place without miles and miles of high rises. It is best known for wide stretches of nationally-renowned beaches, tree-lined streets, lots of sidewalks and footpaths. There is a 23-mile paved bike path running alongside 30A. Santa Rosa Beach was pnamed one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations for 2011” by Yahoo! Travel, which praised its “lapping waves and cool sand” and the endless array of outdoor and indoor activities.
Gulf Place is the perfect stop for a cup of coffee, lunch, ice cream or dinner as you make your way to and from the beach. You will also enjoy the unique boutique shopping, day spa, the artist colony and an outdoor pavilion featuring live music during the spring and summer.
The Barefoot Bungalow is conveniently located less than ten minutes from Seaside and 12 minutes from Destin.
This is a non-smoking and pet-free home.
We pride ourselves in providing a clean and comfortable home for our guests. This home is deep-cleaned three times a year and professionally cleaned at the departure of each guest.
