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 Santa Rosa Beach

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.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the house was awesome and the beach was beautiful. It’s a great little gated community that is close to shops and restaurants. The house is very spacious. The only suggestion we have is that the house needs some up-keeping and deep cleaning. The bathrooms had mold residue and were not 100% clean when we arrived. The kitchen pans were old and rusty, some of the patio furniture was broken and the back gate to the house/pool had to be worked on by my husband to make sure it closed. Overall a good stay though.

Perfect house and location for a family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

House was as expected. Location is great. Not in the busy tourist area. Just an easy walk to the beach. Plenty of places within walking distance to eat, be with friends and family. Grocery shopping is a short drive away. House has a decently equipped kitchen. There are 3 porches. The one over the pool allows for sunrise viewing. The gated residence area is great. We'll be back!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised with this rental and all it had to offer. The home was very clean and accommodated our group of 4 adults and 4 kids perfectly. The pool was heated as requested at 90 degree temps which made it great for the kids this time of year. They answered any text questions and/or concerns immediately. The location was perfect - so close to the beach and never too crowded. Loved everything about it and would definitely stay here again!
