"We rented the condo for a month in Dec 13/Jan 14. Upon arrival, we found a very clean, well appointed space and lacked for nothing during our visit. The kitchen was well stocked, and we really enjoyed the full bookshelves, too! Gail, the rental agent, and Wendy, the owner, were both very helpful and made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. The description was exactly correct.
The 1-BR unit is small - I'm not sure I'd want to spend a month there with more than 2 people present, but for shorter trips the attached sunroom has a futon that could serve as an extra bedroom, especially since they have placed a curtain between that space and the living room that could make it into a more private area if needed. We really enjoyed the adjoining patio (weather permitting), and the tiki umbrella added to the ambiance. Parking is right in front of the unit, so very convenient, and the beach is just across the street. It wasn't very crowded even on the nice days at this time of year. Every shopping need is available just across the causeway, and there are tons of local restaurants and shops nearby to keep you busy. Our favorite was Salt Rock Grill which is just on the other side of the patio wall, so an easy walk. After all of that good food, we probably should have taken more advantage of the 2 nice bikes available with the unit but even with the great bike lanes in Indian Shores, we were hesitant to ride without helmets which we did not bring along.
We had stayed at Barefoot Beach in the past for shorter trips and like the quiet, cleanliness and the facilities. Having grills and laundry facilities very handy is great, and the pool area is well kept. We told friends about the complex, and they arrived the day after we left, and the loved it too!
We would definitely consider this condo again."
