Charming cottage w/ shared hot tub, fitness center & nature trails!
Receive healthy doses of sunshine and tranquility on Florida's Forgotten Coast when you stay at this charming Barefoot Cottages rental.
Set on 18 acres of coastal woodlands and featuring community amenities like a hot tub, a fitness center, and playgrounds, the Barefoot Cottages offer more than just the beach. Speaking of which, Windmark Beach is just one mile away for a fancy-free day wading in the gentle Gulf waves.
A screened-in porch with Adirondack chairs creates the perfect place to sip lemonade or connect with friends. Take mid-day breaks or ride out a thunderstorm in the comfort of the home's bright and thoughtfully decorated interior.
Catch the weather report on the flatscreen TV or pop in the kids' favorite DVD while you fix a dinner of fresh local seafood in the well-equipped kitchen. Complete with modern, stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, the kitchen will help you save money on dining out. A picnic-style dining table will inspire memorable family meals and post-dinner card games.
All that fresh sea air and sunshine will make you grateful for the cozy accommodations. Couples will enjoy the spacious king bed. Siblings can throw an impromptu slumber party in the bunk room. For the guest who doesn't mind taking a couch, they'll be glad to know that the living room sofa folds out into a sleeper. Both bedrooms also have their own TVs.
In addition to the in-home and community amenities, there's a washer and dryer with which you can freshen up your swimsuits. Free WiFi will make it easy for you to connect with friends at home and save on data. Lastly, air conditioning, a must-have in Florida, will ensure that you stay comfortable day and night.
Beyond the nearby beach are tons of sandy and non-sandy activities for the whole family. Visit Cape San Blas for horseback riding along the beach, or drive into quaint downtown Port St. Joe for a bite to eat and shopping. Go fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and maybe even catch a trophy.
This charming home on Florida's Forgotten Coast will inspire a truly memorable vacation!

The house was clean, quiet, and attractive. We appreciated it’s proximity to Port St. Joe and the beach (it is a mile away, and we did drive). There was only one bag in the kitchen trash can and no extra. Would have liked to have an extra for that can, but we managed to make do with the one provided.

House was close to Port St Joe. Although it states it sleeps nine, this house is for a single family. Only one private bedroom, for a couple, all other sleeping areas are shared. Not enough pillows or towels available for stated occupancy.

We had a great time! The home was great and loved the pool!

Beautiful 2 story cottage in a small town. spent the weekend with family and loved that we were walking distance from the beach. the cottage is nice and clean with plenty of room.
Rebecca C.Jun 2020
Cottage was immaculate. Was close to everything we needed. Beaches on Cape San Blas perfect. Crystal clear water and white powder sand. Ready for next years vacation.

We loved this condo so much. It was a nice size, clean, and close to Port St Joe. There is not a lot to do in Port St Joe, but a perfect location for a relaxing vacation. The bed was comfortable. Our key code did not work when we first got there, but the issue was fixed promptly. We will be back!

David J.Aug 2019
Friendly people, great accommodations , and no feeling off rushed morning of check out.
My family and i stayed there this past weekend and we loved it. The place was clean, had plenty of room for everyone and we had all the supplies we needed to cook at the house vs going out to eat every night. The screened in porch was nice to sit on and relax without being eaten by bugs lol

Britney F.Jul 2018
Didn't like that the home wasn't walking distance to the ocean like the pictures and advertising showed. The home was clean and decorated nice. The pool was a little on the warm side. But I liked how we had the screen porches but with no view of anything fancy. Wasn't as luxurious as we hoped. Home was in the middle of no where.
Windmark Beach is one mile away from this home. We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed by this, and we hope to have another chance to impress them in the future.

Affordable without skimping on amenities we love the barefoot cottages we stay here every year .
Marie M.May 2018
I stayed at the house with 3 friends for a weekend and we loved it! It was extremely clean and had everything we needed! It was a quiet community just a short drive from several beautiful beaches. We absolutely want to come back again!
Mary M.Apr 2018
The unit was spacious and comfortable. It is not within walking distance to the beach - Wind Mark beach is maybe a 5 minute drive, but very beautiful.

Relaxing and perfect!

Beautiful cottage. Had a great time.
Kim S.Sep 2017
Tybee Island was closed due to Hurricane Irma mandatory evacuation and the trip we planned each year was in peril but I remembered that a friend visited a place called Cape San Blas. One thing led to another and we ended up having a much better experience in PSJ, CSB (especially St Joe Peninsula State Park - gorgeous beaches), Mexico Beach, Appalachicola... lots of great memories.
Sandra A.Aug 2017
We very much enjoyed our stay at this unit! It's decorated so beautifully and is so peaceful and serene, exactly what you want for vacay. This was our first stay at Port St. Joe - we love it and the surrounding areas. We will definitely be back!
SAM F.Jul 2017
The cottage was beautiful and comfy! Wish it were my forever home. The pool was very nice as well! Enjoyed getting in there after a day on the beach! Amazing accommodations in a sleepy beach town.
Nicoma R.Jun 2017
The location was great! Kinda reminded us of Destin 20years ago and before it got so populated. You'll for sure have to drive a bit to go anywhere but the proximity allowed us to visit several beaches within the few days. The property is VERY quiet with some ppl making it their permanent home so not the place to go if you're looking to be a little rowdy. The only downside was that the pool closed at dusk which was too early for us. Most of the people we saw were older so that may be the reason for the early pool closure and the quiet. The home was beautifully decorated and felt like a home. Overall we loved it.

We have stayed in 3 Barefoot Cottages over the past 4 years. This unit B10 was the best so far. Looks like it was fairly new carpet and paint. The decor was very nice and the furniture was in great condition.
Christina S.May 2017
This home has everything you need. Nicely decorated. Organized rental process. Nice pool area. Gated community.

Thank you for our wonderful experience for our vacation. We stayed for a week and it was wonderful.
