Overview

About the property

Beautiful 2BR, 1BA (sleeps 6) ground floor with patio just steps to beach

You get a nice tropical resort feel in this ground floor (no stairs or elevator!) condo. It's just a short walk to the beach, and the 5 acre low-rise resort boasts a large pool and lush gardens. This unit is one of the closest units to the heated pool, but it's around a corner, so you're as close to the pool as you can get, without the pool noise.

This one also includes a completely private and fenced-in back patio with a table and chairs where you can sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee, an evening drink or just relax in the warm weather.

You can use the fully appointed kitchen or you can BBQ just outside. Included is internet access, hundreds of TV channels and free long distance calling anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. The condo is sparkling clean and freshly renovated with granite counters, crown molding and ceramic floors. Two bedrooms, and it has comfortable new mattress beds in both bedrooms.

This unit is family friendly. It includes a pack-and-play crib and high chair right in the closet - free for you to use if you need it. It's also tucked away in a quiet part of the complex away from the busy road - plus the fenced-in yard and lack of stairs to climb makes nice and safe for kids.

For this unit, your rent includes access to an on-site helpful front office. They are there to help you with any problems or questions and make your vacation as stress free as possible. Also includes free access to a local fitness center and free use of bikes.

There are excellent restaurants and family friendly entertainment options (Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Golf) within walking distance. A short drive to Clearwater Beach or John’s Pass allows you to experience the area’s most popular attractions.

About Mark Staecker

We live in Canada and have two young kids. We enjoy taking family beach vacations in Florida when the weather starts getting cool up here. We'll sometimes do a day trip to Disney from our condo, but for us, the highlight of Florida is always Florida's beautiful beaches and warm pool weather. We like a lot of the activities that you can only enjoy along the water - things like boat tours and deep sea fishing

Mark Staecker purchased this condo in 2009

Why Mark Staecker chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We found the Barefoot Beach Resort while on vacation in the area. We came back a few times and loved the resort so much that we jumped on the opportunity when one of the best units in the complex came up for sale. Now we go down often - and still love it.

What makes this condo unique

We lived in the Clearwater – St. Pete’s area for years before moving back home to Canada (and before having kids) so we are very familiar with this area. When we lived in Florida, Indian Shores was always our favorite stretch of beach because it has beautiful sand and is quieter than some of the tourist-packed stretches of beach (like Clearwater Beach.) In our opinion, it's probably the nicest beach in the area. It's also close to John's Pass which is an area we love for entertainment, bars and restaurants.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and the decor bright and cheerful. We loved staying here and would definitely return. The walk to the beach was less than 5 mins across a small 2-lane street. This area is perfect for those wanting to avoid the heavy crowds of Clearwater. The beach is beautiful and there are lots of great places nearby for food. Checking in and out of the resort was quick and hassle free. We were blessed with great weather making the whole experience the best vacation I've had in recent memory.

Nice and relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife stayed a week in this amazing vacation home in beginning of March.

Why amazing? During our long history of renting holiday apartments first time the reality was even better than we expected based on pictures and descriptions let us understood. To be clear our expectation were high! This home does have really a high-level kitchen, nice and cozy bedrooms and a really nice patio in the back yard for breakfast in the sun or dinner under the stars.

The staff in Barefoot was really friendly and ready to help in all questions. Obviously, the other quests had similar experiences since they were so nice and friendly.

Pool area was spacious and clean. Most important was that the beach is literally on the other side of street.

Mark!

We will come back,

Such a cute place and had every thing we needed for the beach. The beach was across the street and restaurants were within walking distance.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

4 of us had a girls week to celebrate our 40th birthdays. We all flew in from different parts of the country (one from Alaska) and spent our time in this condo. It accommodated us perfectly! I am an early riser and walked across the parking lot and watched the sun rise over the water behind us. It felt safe and peaceful. There were several places to eat nearby and the beach is baeutiful and very close on the other side of the road.

Indian Shores
Car: necessary

Located halfway between Clearwater Beach and Madeira beach on Florida's Gulf Coast - in the Tampa Bay region. Indian Shores is free of the large-scale developments that have claimed many Tampa Bay area beaches. Free of large crowds and heavy traffic, the area is the ideal vacation setting for couples and families longing to get away.

Barefoot Beach Resort is set on five acres of waterfront property overlooking the intracoastal waterway, and directly across the street from the beautiful white powder beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Barefoot Beach Resort offers you the chance to unwind in a private, intimate setting, while still having the comforts of home.

Close to excellent golf courses, great fishing, and family friendly entertainment options, this condo is in a convenient location. Also close to restaurants, supermarkets, entertainment and shopping.
