Relaxing home w/ 2 shared pools, hot tub, playgrounds, etc - 1 mile from beach
Take a trip to relaxing Port St. Joe at this well-thought-out three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home. Featuring a shared pool and hot tub, playgrounds for the kids, and two levels of screened-in porches, this home offers comfort and enjoyment for youth and adults alike.
The home is located in charming Port St. Joe on Florida's Forgotten Coast. Charter a local fishing boat from the local marina, or sunbathe on the buttery sands of nearby Windmark Beach. The historic downtown shopping area is a great place to stroll or grab a bite to eat, and there are often fairs and festivals going on downtown such as the Scallop Festival, Songwriters Festival, or Saltair Farmers Market.
The fresh and inviting living room of the home provides an overstuffed couch and two armchairs for watching TV on the flatscreen with provided cable and DVD player. WiFi connection is also offered for uploading photos or videos of the day's adventures. Come lunchtime, the well-equipped kitchen provides ample counter space, stainless steel appliances, a double sink, and a dishwasher for easy cleanup. The breakfast bar is a great place for brunch with stool seating for three, while a dinette table in the breakfast nook offers additional seating for four.
When you're ready to get out in the Florida sunshine, you don't have to go far to take a splash in the shared pool - just step outside your front door. There is also a second shared pool in the cottage community. Come dinnertime, the community offers grilling areas for barbecuing chicken, fresh seafood, or shish-kebabs. Let the kids play on the playground after dinner while you enjoy a glass of lemonade on the screened-in front porch. Then the whole group can relax in the hot tub before bed. The upstairs screened-in porch also offers a ceiling fan.
Come bedtime, the home has three bedrooms. The master bedroom provides a king bed and private en suite bathroom, while two additional bedrooms offer queen beds and bathrooms as well. The home also provides its own private washer/dryer for laundering suits and towels after days spent lazing by the pool. A sofabed offers additional sleeping space for two, making the home ideal for sleeping up to six.
Port St. Joe is filled with beautiful sunshine, soft sand, and opportunity for instant revitalization. Stroll along nature trails just steps from your front porch and take in the lush local foliage, or ride your bike to St. Joseph's Bay where you'll find four miles of walk and bike trails. Visit the Cape San Blas lighthouse, or go horseback riding on the beach. For adventure, charter a deep sea fishing boat, go sea kayaking, or do some snorkeling.
Take some time off from the day-to-day and enjoy the luxurious surf and sun of Florida's Forgotten Coast at this well-laid-out home for all - book today!

We loved our stay! Bright, beautiful, spacious and relaxing. Everything was perfect! The beach was close by and we especially enjoyed only being steps away from the pool. We will definitely be back.
Wendy H.Aug 2020
First thing we notices is how clean it was. It was much larger than expected and was just feet away from the pool. I would DEFINITELY recommend this as a place to stay and will we will be back!
Kayla K.Jul 2020
We loved our stay here! Below are some pros & cons! Pros - Spacious and comfy, plus every bedroom has its own bathroom which our party really appreciated. It's within a few steps of the complex pool and hot tub and only a few min drive from some lovely beaches! Cons - It's a smaller town so not a ton to do, but given the present circumstances of COVID, we actually liked being in a more remote place. Also, it's expected that each occupant cleans all the dishes but there's not enough dishwasher pods provided so we pulled out several dirty dishes upon arrival and had to hand wash a ton of dishes (we were only given 2 pods for 4 nights with 6 pple). Bring a sharp knife or two plus extra trash bags as well. Other than that, it's a great place and location and we enjoyed our stay!

This is our 3rd time staying at Barefoot Cottages and we enjoyed B33 probably the most out of all of them. Great proximity to the pool and wonderfully furnished.
yolanda M.Jul 2020
This house was immaculate, clean and beautiful. The people we met that lived there were sooooo nice. Right down to the visitors. We will return.
Daniel W.Jun 2020
Nice place. Convenient location with nice accommodations.
Chris C.Oct 2019
Everything is clean and well maintained. We go to Port St. Joe many times during the year, this place will be at the top of our list!
Joseph W.Aug 2019
There were six in our party, four adults and two kids. We all fit in this three bedroom unit comfortably. Each bedroom had its own full bathroom with an additional half bath in the downstairs area. The unit was very clean, and furnished with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The furniture seemed new since there had been water in the unit from hurricane Michael. There was no evidence there was ever a storm. The two screened porch areas, one upstairs and one downstairs were nice areas to sit and watch the pool activity. Only negatives were the steep stairs that were tough for our old legs, although the master bedroom was downstairs, and the fact that you had to drive to any beach area. I would recommend this rental to anyone that is looking for a reasonably priced escape.

Very clean . We enjoyed
Gwendolyn V.Jul 2019

Zachary S.May 2019
We loved our stay . Everything in the house was nice and very clean . Beds were comfortable , plenty of extra towels and they provided soap shampoo , conditioner . Big pool wasn’t working yet but the small pool was great . We had a 21ft boat with us and parking for it was great and so was the wash station . This is our favorite place to stay in port saint joe , and we recommend this place to anyone staying in this area .
Renn and Barb K.May 2019
This cottage was beautifully decorated and supplied with everything, PLUS, that we could have needed for our snowbird time in the PSJ area. We stayed post Hurricane Michael while there was still construction in the house & the neighborhood, but the owners and all the workers were very accommodating & our time in BFC's was wonderful. The location is convenient to good restaurants, local shops and great beaches. We can't wait to return next season!
Elaine B.Oct 2018
The air conditioning didn't work and we were moved to another location which was lovely and right on the ocean. The
VACASA staff was very helpful. However they should have left a note on the door of B33 so we would have not move everything into 33 and then take it out.
We’re very pleased the guests enjoyed the new home. It was simply bad timing that the AC motor went out on the day of arrival and Vacasa tried to notify guest before check in. Unfortunately, the guest did not have a cell phone and could not be reached. Guest were significantly upgraded to a much larger beach front home at no additional expense. We gave them the choice to move immediately but they chose to stay a night in the original home. Detailed notes will be left going forward. Thank you.
Judy S.Aug 2018
This cottage was beautifully decorated in a beach theme. It was brightly painted, well maintained and had everything that we needed. When you walked out the front door we were just steps from a huge pool and hot tub. We were just minutes from the beach, grocery store and good places to eat. We rented B33. We would love go again.
Jacob H.Jul 2018
The house and pool area were great, short drive to multiple beaches and Shipwrecked for the best seafood around. Will be bringing a cell signal booster in the future though, every carrier drops around here.
Kelly M.Jul 2018
We loved the general location of the cottages and we loved how close we were to the pool!
Cassandra H.Jul 2018
B33 was a very nice cottage with a great pool view. We loved the porches. The WiFi kept slowing down and we would constantly have to reset it. Also the door to the master bath would not stay open. Those were the only two things we could complain about. It was a great place to stay.
The WiFi and cell service are spotty in the area, and we have not noticed any issues or received any other complaints regarding the door. Thanks!
Joseph N.Jul 2018
This is a great place. My family really enjoyed it.
Nichole D.Jun 2018
It was a very spacious cottage with everything stocked that would be needed. Quiet and peaceful environment
Virginia R.Apr 2018
I can't say enough good things about this wonderful cottage. We had everything we needed, the beds were perfect, cleanliness was perfect, Mexico beach was the closest beach access that we could find and it was wonderful. I definitely recommend this place to everyone! And the price was right for our 2 week stay.
Julie M.Apr 2018
Loved the cottage B33. Had everything we needed! Wish the hot tub would have been working but it looked like maintenance was there looking at it 😀. We definitely will be back!
Carolyn S.Mar 2018
The home was clean and spacious.
Sheri B.Oct 2017
Although not beachfront these cottages are perfect for family vacations! The pool was great. The cottage was beautiful.
Jared J.Aug 2017
Scallop season was cancelled but we still enjoyed our time at the cottages, the screen porches for sunrise coffee, the pill being so close. Rode horses on the beach and went shopping in downtown appalachicola. Very cool place!
Tammy M.Jul 2017
This cottage was very well maintain the house Deco was very bright and inviting. Love the set up of the rooms... This cottage is great for an all adult stay with its 3 bedrooms and each room with its own bathroom work out great. It will be my first choice of cottages to stay in in my future stays...
Carol W.Jul 2017
This is our second year of staying at barefoot cottages. We love it because it's family oriented, close to everything but a quiet neighborhood. It's close to Captains Cove Marina where we park and launch our pontoon boat. We will definitely return!
Linda H.Jul 2017
excellent place to stay. Very clean and in great condition.

Great place, very clean, nicely decorated, spacious, and right by the pool!
Sally H.Mar 2017
This was a wonderful little unit for us - 4 kids and 2 adults. It was tastefully and comfortably furnished. There was a nice selection of movies, books and games to keep everyone occupied. The kitchen had everything you need and some unexpected extras - a waffle maker and a crockpot. We had a great week, except for the weather turning cold - visitors may want to bring an extra blanket or two as we could have used a couple extras. We will definitely plan to stay here again.
