On premise parking with ground floor apartment.
I am a brand new owner and excited to start my future as a landlady. I have the greatest friends and family who are helping me make my dream come true. This unit is newly remodeled and decorated and if I say so myself, beautiful. I'm originally from Ocean City, Md and have always lived near the beach. If your in the area please stop by so I can show you around my building. I live on the premises so any problem, should there be one, will be dealt with immediately. Hope to see you soon. PS Belle is my sweet lab who shares my life and my home.
Rose Whitt purchased this condo in 2013
Because its the best deal in town. We are small and able to be flexible with our rentals. We do daily, weekly or monthly. plus this is my home and with your help my long awaited retirement.
We will do what it takes to make your vacation perfect. I can assist you by accommodating late or early check in. We supply bath towels, linens and all kitchen small appliances. We're available 24/7.
First. I must say that its location to all activities is fantastic. Second. Communication with owner was good as well. Thirdly. Once inside as we were putting things away we found items left behind by previous renters. We were not interested in any of those items amd should have been cleaned up. In doing so we noticed fecal matter of ever present cockroaches. They were feasting on the food left behind and wait for our food with open arms. We had to put Everything in the fridge after we cleaned it to keep them out. Into the bathroom we found
Moldy base trim that has been there so long its black and still damp. Also the 🚽was not properly fastened to the floor and sewer gas was present.
Over all the place needed a Major cleaning from 🔝to bottom. We decided not to mention this to her in fear that it would have wasted our precious time disusing how to fix it. We hope she has a regular bug man and someone who can clean and not just take her money for a piss poor job.
Only positive thing I can say about Barefoot Belle is that it is convenient to the beach.
Negative things I can say are:
Dirty condo as evidenced by roaches in kitchen drawers, bugs on bathroom counter tops and dirty, damp couch.
Outside furniture was inside furniture and not usable for outside use.
AC not working.
Dryer not working unless you are told in advance how it is rigged up. Rose is not a people person at all--not sincere when she speaks to you, lacks compassion and not a problem solver.
Why is their a cleaning fee when this unit has not been cleaned for quite some time???
I highly DO NOT RECOMMEND staying here and rate this a 1
My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids, and our Sheltie) had the most fantastic time at Barefoot Belle! It is a short walk to Miramar Beach and also to Pompano Joe's (their food and service are fantastic)! The condo is also just a short (10 minutes or less) to other amazing restaurants and any shop you could ask for! The condo has great amounts of seating outside to enjoy, and is the perfect size for small families! My only complaint is that there is no TV in the bedroom, but that is something I probably can use less of! I would recommend Barefoot Belle and Rose to everyone!
This was our second time to stay at the Belle. We love the proximity to the beach and we get to have our pups with us. Rose is great to work with and we are already planning our next stay.
Thanks for the hospitality. We enjoyed our stay and so did our 2 furry family members. The location was just a short walk to the beach. Check-in & check-out was a breeze. The small dog run and washer/dryer units was a plus. We will tell our friends.
Owner: On site (lived above the apartment), very friendly and always available, response time from initial email was less than 1 hour
Pros: Walking distance to an “After 6pm pet-friendly” beach, walking/biking/jogging trail nearby (over 10 miles)--busy in the mornings, clean/fully furnished unit upon arrival (needed a blender and a good corkscrew), close to shopping, beach chairs for “borrow” (don’t get too excited), laundry facility on site (I didn’t use it), large closet and other furniture to stow your belongings, the area was perfectly lit at night and I felt completely safe walking my labs after dark alone
Cons: The apartment smelled like mold. I went to Walmart to buy Frebreeze and candles to get rid of the smell, which never went away. The apartment was too close to other rentals for my taste. Wifi only worked in the living room and NOT in the bedroom.
The photos on VRBO were NOT congruent with the unit I rented!
Chances of me staying here again? I could handle all of the cons except that moldy/mildew odor. If you don’t mind that, it’s a great place to rent!
