This was our third time to the area, and first time staying in the Barefoot Cottages. We really enjoyed this little community, and will definitely be back. This particular unit, B16, is right by the pool, which is nice, but it’s also a short walk to the pool from any of the units. We love Port St Joe. This quiet little community has a lot of easily accessible fishing, beautiful beaches, and amazing sunsets.

Can’t wait to return next year!

House was convenient to where we needed to be, close to the port for shopping and quick bit to eat. Well equipped with linens and extra blankets. Beds were fairly comfortable. The main bedroom actually had a king bed. We only had 4 in our party, so 1 slept on the couch and the other slept in the secondary queen bedroom. Kitchen is well equipped, but all we used was a fork. There is an iron and ironing board, and washer and dryer. Enough consumables provided for a few days for us. Access on/ off property was easy, as was check in and check out. Quiet at night. Ample parking.

Home was super clean with all the necessary amenities.

From the decor to the location of the condo, it’s perfect!

You’re steps from the pool. It’s like having your own pool in the backyard.
All the beds sleep well and lots of stuff to cook with. The owner is great and easy to communicate with also. Willing to answer all questions before hand and while there. We had a issue with the door breaking (old door, out of everyone’s control) and he didn’t hesitate to get someone out there to fix it ASAP.

We would most def stay again!!!

I think the best thing about this house is the location within the community. It is right by the pool which was extremely convenient when hauling 4 kids back and forth to play. The manager, Patrick, was very nice when I had concerns or questions. The downside we experienced was the cleanliness wasn't up to our standards. The dishes didn't look very clean so we washed them before use. There is a vacuum you can use to tidy up during your stay. While we were there the bottom metal panel on the screen door was protruding which was hazardous for small children to get cut on. I did address this with Patrick and he said they had ordered a new door. Another issue is that the beds were extremely uncomfortable. A family member and I just slept on the couch because it was so painful to sleep on. The washer and dryer did make the stay easier so you don't have to pack a lot if you are there for a longer period.
A side comment that reflects the area, Port St. Joe, is that we didn't like the location. The restaurants were not accommodating and never answered the phones for take-out, which if you have children you don't want to take and sit down causes aggravation. People in this area aren't friendly either, and a local told us it was due to the increase in tourists and the residents didn't like it. Overall, we won't be booking again for a vacation because of the location, if this house was located somewhere else, maybe.

Loved the close proximity to the parking lot

We loved out little Barefoot Cottage. The decor was perfect for a little beach town. The pool was clean and basically the cottage, town and entire area was so quaint and we will be back. So relaxing and close to the beach. We loved it and will be back. The only disappointing thing was the lack of really good quality seafood restaurants. Hopefully, as the town rebuilds some better quality restaurants will become part of this beautiful area of the Gulf!!

Great pool location, the screened porches relaxing,super clean and well equipped kitchen. The only downside was that the stairs were hard to navigate as I have mobility issues. The shower pressure was weak when I reached it. This is a wonderful family place to stay if you are reasonable fit!

Great location next to pool entrance and very quiet place to stay. We were here from November 2020 till February 2021.

The location of this condo was by far the best. right at the pool and the fitness center. very clean and up to date.
Clyde O. Sep 2020
The cottage was great. It was clean and comfy. I would like a 1/2 Bath on 1st floor.
Manager response:
Clyde, We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Barefoot Cottages #B16. Thank you for the suggestion of a half bath on the first floor. We have a variety of homes with differing amenities to choose what is important for their comfort level. We truly hope you'll consider us for your next getaway. Thank you!
Jessica A. Sep 2020
Places are nice, clean and convenient. I would say only negative is pool rules are too strict. Kids weren’t allowed to swim past dusk. Can’t use hot tub or even sit on the pool deck after dusk. Most people are out scalloping during the day. We just wanted to hang out with our friends and enjoy sitting pool side. We had owners coming out and complaining about it and cops staying on the premises shutting down the use of these amenities. Who uses a hot tub during a 98 degree day? I would say this might keep us from coming back next year and we had a LARGE group. Couldn’t enjoy hanging around our large group of friends because common areas shut down before sundown.

Third year to stay. Will return. Highly recommended!
Amy H. Jul 2020
The house was adorable, whoever it lacked many necessities. We were given 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, 5 towels for 6 people, one roll of paper towels, 2 trash bags, and no seasonings. We had a great time but didn’t appreciate having to buy these necessities for our short trip.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed the home. We are sorry for any miscommunications regarding the number of paper products that were in the unit upon your arrival. We do provide starter packs of paper products and detergents, and anything required beyond what is provided is the responsibility of the guests. We truly hope we can host you for a more comfortable stay in the future, thank you.

Russell A. Jun 2020
We've stayed in Barefoot pre-hurricane and loved it so we came back..I liked it this time too..right in front of the pool, it's quiet and comfortable..Patrick the property manger stopped by to change out some bulbs..nice guy, helpful, when I needed to call him for a question, he answered and responded promptly. Will be back..
Scott D. Jun 2020

We had a great time! It is a beautiful well kept home away.
Toyia C. Sep 2018
We loved our cottage. I only did a 4 because one of the bathrooms upstairs toilet was stopped up the first night & we had to plunge it to fix, thw front door sticks and is hard to open and the screen door wouldn’t shut properly. Those were all minor things. Over all we would stay here again in a heart beat. Highly recommend.
Manager response:
We wish this guest had called about these issues so maintenance could take care of them to improve our guest's stay. We have addressed the matters at this point. Thank you!
Keith A. Aug 2018
Second great year at B16 at Barefoot Cottages with large group in other units. B16 served us well and the complex is well kept. Booking ease and communications were excellent. Hope to return next year!
Elizabeth W. Jul 2018
It was great. Easy access to Mexico Beach. Only thing is this building should be labeled from the parking lot. Took us a few moments to find once we got there.
Christina B. Jul 2018
I will definitely be back again
Beverley Rose W. Jun 2018
I loved the location of the cottage. We had never been to Port St. Joe before and love the area and the beaches...It was the perfect cottage for 6 people...Loved that it was right in front of the pool.
ROBERT K. May 2018
Everything was absolutely amazing 😍😍😍😍😍
John P. May 2018
The cottage was very spacious and had everything we could ask for. We loved the screened porches on both floors, and the large walk-in shower in the master bedroom was also nice to have. I highly recommend this place.
Channing B. Dec 2017
Excellent place to stay while exploring Florida's northwest beauty. Love these cottages and the kind people around Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach, and Cape San Blas! Enjoy
Donna H. Sep 2017
We had a great time. The home was clean and well maintained. Great location. The home is conveniently located near the pool and parking.
David M. Jul 2017
It is a very cute cottage in a nice quiet location. Everyone was very friendly and laid back. The pool was fabulous. It is a great place to stay.
Shannon M. Jul 2017
Fantastic for family w small kids. Steps away from the pool!!! We also loved the upper deck screened in patio.
Royce S. Jun 2017
Our stay was wonderful. The unit was as advertised. If you have mobility issues the steps to the bedrooms are very steep. House was clean nicely furnished and stocked with more than adequate dishes etc. we enjoyed our visit.
William W. Jun 2017
Great cottage, location on property was excellent! Walk off the front porch and you are able to enter the pool area within 5 steps. Upper balcony feels like a private haven as it is surrounded with palm trees that provide that little bit of extra privacy! Cottage is nicely furnished, good size kitchen for making family meals to share as you sit around the large table or while sitting at the bar. Extra amenities were available that we did not get a chance to use such as the grills and community cottage that was located next door that housed workout equipment. Overall this is a very nice cottage located a little out of the hustle and bustle of the congested beach vacation areas but close enough to make your stay a beach vacation!
Martha F. May 2017
I would definitely stay here again but would select a different Cottages unless this cottage was updated!
Braden S. Apr 2017
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location and beautiful property!
Timothy M. Apr 2017
The property was nice, pretty clean and well kept. Our unit was very nice, clean spacious; it walked right out to the pool and hot tub area. Close to the beach and town if we wanted to go out. It was nice having a fully equipped unit (washer, dryer, dishwasher, ect.) it made the stay much easier, especially having three children with us. My critiques would be the lack of a playground; it was advertised and in the pictures it showed play equipment, but nothing was there. We had issue with the gate code. None was given to us, and we happened to be able to go in when someone was going out so we were never technically locked out. Our unit-door didn't have a lock-box, so we were always a little worried that out door passcode would stop working and we'd be locked out of our unit without our car keys or cellphones. We never really knew who to contact if something were to go wrong. The pool and hot-tub area could've used some more daily maintenance (cleaning, sweeping, chlorination, ect.) but was otherwise very enjoyable. It was fairly quiet and overall a very pleasant stay. I would take the family back there again.

We just spent the month of April here and it was very pleasant. Barefoot cottages are great for quiet and laid back resting. Most nights we could sleep with the door open on the second level. I think it is time for painting, cleaning carpets, and just general refreshing. The pool was very clean and plenty of chairs to sun.
