About Melissa Leto

We are part owners with our parents of this lovely property. We try to visit whenever we have availability. We have been taking our daughter to our beach condominium, and she loves playing in the numerous tide pools at the beach. We love spending time at our unit at Barefoot Beach Resort as even one night feels like a vacation.

Melissa Leto purchased this condo in 2006

Why Melissa Leto chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We looked at countless condominiums on the intercoastal and on the beachfront and finally decided on purchasing at Barefoot Beach because it was a brand new resort with all the bells and whistles. The luxurious feel of this condominium is obvious as soon as you walk through the door.

What makes this condo unique

We selected our unit in particular since it was ideally close to the beach and the heated pool is right outside the door. Also the building is soundproof so no worries about noise from being close to the pool. Also right outside the front door is a hose to rinse off beach gear and our feet.

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Erik & Melissa,

Just letting you know that we had a fantastic time whilst staying in your condo at Barefoot. The condo is stunning. It was very much like home and not much different from being at home except it didn't rain. We were very lucky with the weather and had no day time rain!!! Indian Shores is a delightful little town. We will definitely be looking to come again next year.

I will contact you nearer the time to see if you have availability. Thanks for letting us stay.

Super place to stay for an excellent price!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean, had all the basic necessities (plus additional items for your convenience) and was perfectly located right by the pool and just a very short walk from a private beach area. We had a great time and our only regret was not staying longer! This is a place we would definitely return to in the future.

Felt like home.

  • 4 of 5

I'd love to give this unit 5 stars. I almost did, honestly, but there were a couple issues that we had.

The unit is beautiful, clean, great location, and very cozy. It was very well stocked and the quality of the furnishings and linens were outstanding. I really felt like I was in someone's home, not in a hotel.

The only issues we had were that

1. The air conditioner gurgles a bit when it kicks off. My husband never noticed it but as a mother of 4 kids, I'm a very light sleeper so it woke me up every time during the night. I think it's just the normal sound the unit makes but it's adjacent to the bedroom so it was noticeable to me.

2. The last night we were there, the refrigerator made awful noises all night. It sounded like a dying cat. We did report that noise to the number posted on the fridge so hopefully they get that fixed.

All in all, it was a great unit and we would certainly stay again despite the 2 issues we had. They weren't really bad at all.

Absolutely loved my stay at Melissa's condo! The condo itself was clean and invitingly decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Melissa was very prompt in answering questions and offering assistance. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay including beach chairs, towels and stocked kitchen. The complex itself was clean with friendly staff. The walk to the beach was effortless and nightly sunsets were breathtaking... Just grab your family and a glass of wine and enjoy the sunsets along with a twilight swim. Hope to return the same week next year. Uber is a great way to get around to local restaurants. The inter coastal provides great bird and dolphin watching... All in all a great week!

Nice resort - but condo not as great as previous visits

  • 2 of 5

Barefoot Beach is a wonderful place to stay and we have always had great accommodations until this year. Poor lighting for reading as 2 lamps could not be switched on (switch broken) and light bulbs burned out in dining room and living room. Kitchen utensils/small appliances needed to be cleaned as well as bedspread and shams. Pictures on site do not show current sofa condition. Called Melissa before leaving and she assured me that all would be taken care of before the next guests. I hope that is the case. It should be a clean, wonderful stay when all is fixed.

Owner's Response: We did replace comforter, shower curtain, and light bulbs. The sofa is fairly new but the synthetic leather is peeling in one small section from wet towels being left to dry on top of sofa. We will be fixing this as well, and the lamp light switches. Sorry for any inconvenience this caused during your trip.
