Couldn't ask for a better place to stay, good pool, washing machine room...Just a minute from something to do....Pier 60 is just about 15 min away and Tampa about 35 min away too...Make sure you have a car to get where you need to go..

This was our third visit to Barefoot Beach Resort as a couple. (We also come every summer as a family to Indian Shores.)

We stumbled across this gem and loved it!! There was plenty of space for all 7 of us. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of seating areas.

This was the first time we stayed at the Barefoot Beach Resort. These are individually owned condos that are rented. The staff was fantastic. The Condo was right on the inter-coastal waterway so we could sit in the breakfast area and watch the boats go by and the beautiful morning sunrise.

I loved the condo - everything I needed was provided-beach towels, chairs, etc. The condo was modern and clean-there was a "sunroom"/sitting area inside but since we chose to stay on the 2nd floor there was no deck or upper outdoor seating area.

We were invited to a family wedding on St. Pete Beach. I'm not fond of that area of the barrier islands lining the coast near St. Petersburg, so we decided to stay in Indian Shores.

Perfect location. You are steps away from the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. The property is beautifully landscaped and well maintained.
