Spend the day in the private pool right outside your door, or relaxing by the beach, literally only 100 steps away. Home has a pool-side natural gas grill free to all guests!

About The Owner

We both grew up going to the beach on vacation. Once we discovered 30A, we loved it! Between the charming cottage style homes, the beautiful beaches, and the clear water we fell in love with the area. We even got engaged at sunset in Seagrove Beach!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose South Walton

We wanted a home close to the beach with a private pool. Barefoot Baby was perfect. It is located inside a gated community with no streets to cross and private beach access. Plus, we have our own pool. My favorite thing to do is grill fresh fish on our natural gas grill while the kids play in the pool in the evenings!

What makes this house unique

Barefoot Baby has an open floor plan which allows for a large crowd in the main living area. We added on a large eating area to accommodate 10-12 people. We expanded the kitchen and added new cabinets, granite counters and tile floors. It is not only a beautiful house but it is a home where families come to vacation year after year.


Located in Gulf Place beach, Barefoot Baby is walking distance to ice cream, coffee, clothing, and restaurants. Just a short distance away is Stinkey's Fish Camp, famous for delicious Cajun seafood!

Great house for a family vacation! Quiet neighborhood, beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our family vacation. We were with another family; each couple had their own room and the kids shared the bunk room. The pool was one of the largest in the neighborhood; we loved being able to grill and watch kids in the pool at the same time. The kitchen had everything we could need, and then some. It was a short walk to the beach, and the beach was never crowded. The house was within walking distance of a few shops and restaurants. This was our first time in Santa Rosa Beach, and we will definitely be back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Santa Rosa for years. We stayed a different locations each time. This house is by far my favorite. Great location, short walk to the beach. The house was very clean. Plenty of seating room in the great room and kitchen. The kitchen was well equipped with all tools and appliances you could need. Even two coffee makers, drip and Keurig. The best feature was a new gas grill out by the pool. Most places don't have a decent grill, this was a plus. We cooked fresh seafood every night.

We will definitely be staying here again.

Fabulous owner is very easy to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We were scheduled to stay at Barefoot Baby over Labor Day weekend 2016 but were unable to go due to Hurricane Hermine. Even though we did NOT actually stay at the property, I felt compelled to write a review because the owner was so wonderful. Prior to the trip, she promptly answered all my questions and addressed any concerns. It's obvious that she takes pride in her home and wants all her guests to have an excellent stay. During the trip, when we had to cancel due to the storm, she was in contact with me via email, text, and phone. She was absolutely wonderful to work with and made the whole process easy. The rental agency that the owner works with, Sandcastle Escapes, was also really great. I can't say enough good things about this owner. My experience working with her was a A+! Again, we did not actually see the inside of the home, so I can't review that, but we did stay in this same neighborhood in 2015, and the area is wonderful. We admired Barefoot Baby from across the street last year and were excited to stay there in 2016. We will reschedule our trip at some point and will not hesitate to rent this property again!

Barefoot Baby was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My 7 friends and I spent the week at Barefoot Baby and LOVED it!! The house slept the 8 of us very comfortably. Plenty of sleeping and sitting around room. Enjoyed chilling out in the pool after a nice day on the beach, which was only a short walk away! Loved the neighborhood and the location! Will definitely stay there again and recommend it to all of my friends!!
