House was very comfortable- near enough to town for quick store runs, but far enough away for quiet days. Would love to book this location again.

This unit in the Barefoot Cottages development is quite nice for a group. Three bedrooms accommodates 5 or 6 people well. The only real problem was the poor water pressure. There are two nice pools. I love staying in Port St Joe

We enjoyed having a full kitchen and more than enough bathrooms. We also enjoyed the screened in porch.

Great place to stay, close to everything we needed.

Overall, our stay was very enjoyable! Below are a few detailed pros and cons of this unit:
Pros: Super cute cottage, very well decorated, extremely clean, steps away from one of the community pools, all necessities for a week of living were within cottage, location*
* Barefoot Cottages are located on the outskirts of Port St. Joe, but also just a few miles from Mexico Beach. We drove into Port St. Joe daily to eat at the restaurants there. This was “maybe” a 5 minute drive, if that. We also drove to Mexico Beach several times during the week to spend the day on the beach. This was also a 5-10 minute drive depending on where you accessed the beach. The cottage was in a great location, because it was halfway between both cities. However, it would have been nice to access the beach areas without having to drive there.

Beautiful, well-kept home. We've stayed in Apalachicola (St. George Island area) and Mexico Beach, but never been to this area near Windmark Beach. We were blown away by how beautiful the water was just a short (maybe a mile) drive! Clear and calm during our stay, perfect for our 5 and 2 year old boys. Quiet and clean community. We enjoyed the pool after the beach every day.

The house was beautifully remodeled and plenty of space for a large family to spread out. They had adequate dishes and cooking utensils. Loved the washer dryer and half bath on the main floor. The master was big and each bedroom had its own bathroom. The pool was just perfect for small kids and well kept! However, the house wasn’t entirely cleaned, chip crumbs on the floor, some dishes were still dirty and they didn’t leave enough toilet paper for every bathroom. The other thing we were please about is the description of where the beach was. It stated 500 yards which is true. But you have to cross a very busy street and the beach was not adequate for kids or hanging out for the day. Windmark beach a mile away was ok but it’s worth it to drive a few miles to the public access beaches closer to Mexico beach. Next, they didn’t have extras. They supplied one roll of toilet paper for 3 bathrooms, one roll of paper towels. There was no salt and pepper, no coffee filters for the coffee. We used the grill one night. It is a camping grill in a community area. It was not kept clean at all so we had to get foil to use. The last issue was that they didn’t tell us that they turn the temperature up on the fridge took us a while to figure it out our drinks weren’t cold and how to set it cooler. Overall, it was a nice quiet area to stay but not if you plan on going back and forth to the beach.

I couldn’t recommend this place enough. Secure private and great accommodations. Best place to stay if you don’t want to stay on the actually beach. The 4 rating is because I feel like only on the beach deserves a 5. Also the master bed wasn’t super comfortable, could use a better mattress, also the AC seemed to struggle with cooling the whole place a little on 72. Need to turn the fan to on to keep it cool and have all the fans going never went above 75 though. We Will stay here again for sure.

This home is very clean, cute and relaxing. There are two pools in the complex, a gym and plenty of parking. The beach is not close enough to walk but there is beach access a block from the house. We drove into Mexico beach each day for more white sand! The house has all you need and plenty of space. It was perfect for a no agenda, beach/ pool relaxation stay.

Such a beautiful home in a great area!! We had the best time, I definitely recommend!

Nice house and very nicely furnished and decorated. It's a bit far from town, but it did not bother us for a January stay. Might not stay here if going for a summer trip just because it is off the beaten path. Houses are really close together.
