About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

***All weekly stays March-November 1 include beach chair service (daily set-up and use of 2 steamer style beach chairs and an umbrella),

This luxurious 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home sits adjacent to Rosemary Beach in the very upscale but quiet, private and safe gated community called Water's Edge. The house is 2200 sq. ft of luxury that will truly be a home away from home. It is on the SOUTH side of 30-A, which means there are NO STREETS TO CROSS TO THE BEACH! This is especially great for the safety of kids!

This ideal vacation home has a true Florida Cottage feel with pine floors, pine wainscotting, and hand painted cabinets with granite countertops. In addition, it has 1100 sq. ft of expansive porches that offer spectacular gulf views as well as soothing ocean breezes.

In the back of the home, you will find a beautifully landscaped courtyard with your own private pool, which can be heated for a nominal charge, and patio with a gas grill for those spring and summer evening cook-outs. Just a short 75-yard walk down an immaculately manicured palm tree lined path takes you to one of the most beautiful beaches in America. Welcome to Barefoot Daze!

The luxurious furnishings of Barefoot Daze were designed with comfort and taste in mind. The bedrooms are all comfortable and designed for beach living. TV's and ceiling fans are in each room. Wireless internet available for your convenience. The 2nd floor master suite has a King size bed, a private bath with a whirlpool tub, a separate shower and it overlooks the pool area below. All beds are appointed with down feather toppers to make your sleeping more comfortable.

Across the hall from the master suite is another 2nd floor bedroom with a king-sized bed and adjoining full bath. At the top of the stairway sits the bunkroom, a perfect retreat for kids. The twin bunks are cozy, and the TV in this room makes for an ideal hideaway for the kids. The first floor bedroom has a queen-sized bed and its own private bath.

The best room in the house is at the TOP! The 3rd floor 'Tower Room' is awesome. Views of the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding communities are spectacular! This room can be used as a bonus room for games and movies or as retreat for couples, teens, or in-laws who prefer their own living quarters. Here we have a comfortable sitting area with awesome views, a queen sleeper sofa combined with a queen-sized bed and full private bath and wet bar!

Everyone will want this part of the home to themselves - the back porches (1st and 2nd floors) overlook the courtyard and pool in the rear of the home where you can sit in the rocking chairs and enjoy the magnificent views and ocean breezes.

The large living room is comfortable and, like the rest of the home, is very tastefully decorated by one of the area's premier interior designers, with a large TV with DVD and stereo with speakers in the living room and back porch. The dining room and the kitchen bar are large enough for the whole family to enjoy lunch or dinner together.

This home is conveniently located only a 3-minute stroll to the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach but offers enough seclusion to make any vacation peaceful and relaxing. For those of you that wish to stay 'connected' to the outside world while still enjoying our piece of paradise, we offer wireless highspeed internet.

The newly built outdoor shopping mall, called Pier Park, is a short 10-minute drive east on 98 (toward Panama City). It has a fabulous cinema, as well as wonderful shops and restaurants. Nearby golf courses include Camp Creek Golf Club (1 mile), Santa Rosa Beach Golf Club (approximately 8 miles), The Hombre (15 minutes), several courses in Sandestin including Burnt Pine (25 minutes), and Bay Pointe in Panama City (25 minutes). This area is a hidden paradise for golfers!!

Barefoot Daze is the perfect vacation retreat!

Note from the owners:

We hope you will enjoy your stay at Barefoot Daze. We are thrilled to share it with you and hope that you will create lifetime family memories, renew and strengthen relationships, and unwind from the stresses and concerns of everyday life. We believe our home is the perfect place to do these things. Come and enjoy paradise!!

Great location, House and Vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on 30A for several years but this was our first trip on this end. It did not disappoint! This house is perfectly located in walking distance to plenty of restaurants and shops, including Rosemary Beach. It is just a quick stroll down to the beach- literally a two minute walk down a pleasant path. The pool was such a great asset, and we spent most afternoons there with the young kids. The house was stocked with everything we needed. This house was especially great for us with toddlers. We utilized the baby gate at the stairwell, and appreciated the gated in patio area. The management company was friendly, and helpful in addressing a small trash pickup issue. Overall. it was a great vacation in a great home! Thank you!

We will definitely be back!

First family vacation to the 30A!

  • 5 of 5

Barefoot Daze was AMAZING! And the owners were amazing to work with too! The house had everything you need to enjoy a family vacay-private pool, 2 minute walk to the beach along a rock/sand path, gated community, 2 bike rentals and umbrella/chair setup @ the beach INCLUDED, spacious bedrooms, stocked kitchen, baby gate/pack n' play/booster seat and the list could go on! A HUGE plus was the extra lock on the patio gate out to the pool. We had 4 kids 5&under, and this was a huge relief when we were getting ready for the beach & pool. I would highly recommend this beach house to anybody looking for a relaxing family beach vacation! We look forward to another stay here in the future!

Great House! Great Location! Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was 5th time staying in Seacrest and 7th trip to 30a. By far the best experience yet for us.

Location - if you like the things Seacreast has to offer, including Rosemary and Alys - there is no better location. You can walk or bike to any of the shopping or dining these three have offer. Very centrally located to everything. The beach is a short walk from the house - very convenient for running back to the house for lunch, to freshen a drink or hit the powder room.

House - we were two families with 4 adults and 6 kids total. Three 12 year old girls and three boys aged 7, 10,10. The third floor caused problems between the boys and the girls but ultimately the girls got it. Its great, they had their own little condo up there including a private balcony! Every room has access to a deck and all are properly furnished. The pool was perfect for our 6 kids, and we even had all 10 of us in the pool multiple times.

The owners and the rental company were very nice. Most times in the morning our kids would take a quick swim as we prepared for the beach. One morning the pool heater did not seem to be working. I used the phone app to report a problem and it was fixed before we came back for lunch. It was the only "problem" which I only mention because from time to time things happen. But the response could not have been better, and the phone app made contact a breeze.

We have no stayed in the same house twice, but I would stay here again for sure.

Wonderful home, awesome location, great for young kids and families!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in the Rosemary Beach/Seacrest Beach area and our first time at Barefoot Daze. First, the owners were so easy to work with--prompt in response and very gracious to accommodate our requests (pack n play, high chair, child gates, bike rentals, beach chair service). The location and weather couldn't have been more perfect. The walk to the beach was less than a minute. The development is gated and the beach is private, so it's not over-crowded. Many of the homes in this development have private pools, but Barefoot Daze was perfect because of the gate that blocked the back porch area from pool access. Clearly, the owners have/had young children :)! The home was beautifully decorated and clean upon arrival. We did have an issue with a leaky garbage disposal and a loose shower door, but property management actually proactively came out to check on the home during our stay and addressed it. We had plenty of room for all of our guests, and I thought the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, cookware, etc. As others have mentioned, a larger TV in the master would have been icing on the cake, but overall, couldn't complain about much else! For those looking for a great time to visit this area without the crowds, this was a perfect time--and the weather was amazing!!

Nice, but not perfect.

  • 4 of 5

* Main living was very nicely decorated with beachy colors and furniture. The house has a nice floor plan.

* I suspect the cleaning company is doing more of a wipe down than a deep cleaning/sanitizing. The kitchen and bathrooms had odors. The refrigerator needed to be taken apart and thoroughly cleaned. I didn't call the

rental office because I didn't want the hassle of cleaning people around.

* The tower room was a super cute retreat. It has a balcony with a table and chairs and a small ocean view.

* We were disappointed about the 2 very large balconies on the 2nd floor not having a stick of furniture, rendering the nice outdoor space useless.

* The pool area, furniture and grill were very nice. The pool is small, but actually feels bigger when you are in it. We really enjoyed using it every evening.

* We didn't find any "toppers" on any of the mattresses. My husband and I found the master bedroom bed to be extremely firm and the pillows were like cinder blocks. Yes, I know people have bedding preferences, but we were not comfortable.

* Getting to the beach was a short walk out the back gate straight down a trail to the beach access.

* We no longer have small children, but the back deck was enclosed and secured with a child safety latch to the pool. I didn't see this feature in other houses which would concern me if I had small children in tow.

* The kitchen is adequately appointed. Big plus a Keurig!! The owners needs to get more coffee mugs and cereal bowls. We never had enough.

* The bathrooms are in desperate need of more towel racks and hooks.

* The TV's are nice, good WiFi, we couldn't get the outdoor speakers to work, but that may have just been us.

We have been going to 30A for a long time, this is our 11th rental! My husband and I feel like the area is getting a bit too expensive. We added up what we payed for the rental, transportation and the outlandishly expensive restaurants, (we did have 7) and decided we need to take a hard look at other vacation destinations. This is the Florida panhandle for Pete's sake!

I just wanted to give the next renter and owner the most realistic and fair assessment of the house I could.

Happy vacationing!
