Everything was great...comfortable furniture and beds, very nice decor and small soaps, etc., that's all you need for a short stay. Unfortunately for us, it rained a lot so we were inside more than we'd have liked so we're very happy with the comfort of this property.
LISA S.Sep 2021
We loved our cute cottage Vacay! Everything was clean and others staying there around us were nice as well:)
Just a note…bring hot pads and extra mitts if you plan on cooking. Plus, to the owners, the Refrigerator filter needs to be changed. Thanks for sharing your adorable place🥰
James S.Sep 2021
Quiet, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, all in all a good stay. Location is very convenient to shopping and eating.
Kelly P.Aug 2021
The community is so charming, close to town/beaches and perfectly kept up. Nice pool area, well lit, friendly people. The house itself was great, very cute, well maintained. The only issue the majority of my guests had were the beds, they were very very firm so we had some sore backs. Maybe a few soft mattress toppers would be nice?
Shari O.Aug 2021
Nicely decorated, comfortable and accessorized. Quiet and enjoyable. Perfect to get away to the beach without the crowds. Would be glad to rent again. Only 2 minor suggestions : wish there were more coasters. Could only find 3 and didn’t want to put sweaty glasses on the furniture. The front door lock seemed to have a mind of its own. Was sometimes difficult to unlock, even with using the suggested directions. It would automatically lock as we sat watching the TV. This happened multiple times.
Cheryl B.Jul 2021
This house makes you feel like you are at home! Everything is well thought out and very spacious. The community is very quaint and cozy. We will definitely be back again soon!
Robyn D.Jun 2021
Adorable cottage great for a small family at the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back! Patrick, the local operations manager, reached out by text so that we’d have someone’s contact info if we had any problems. He was friendly and very quick to respond when we had questions about check out. This was a pleasant difference from other places we stayed.
Bryan M.Jun 2021
Loved the pathway to cottage.. People were very friendly...
Jenny S.Jun 2021
I stayed here with my husband . The pictures don’t do it justice . I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. It’s very well cleaned inside. New fridge, dishwasher and full kitchen supplies . I was thankful because we cooked a lot . I enjoyed coffee outside with the screened in area . We swam in the pool . It’s got some relaxing lounge chairs . We also sat outside upstairs which connected to the main bedroom. I loved the trees which help shade the area and kept it cool some of the day . We loved the new shower too. We found the wagons to help move your belongings to your cottage . You have to walk into your place . E were blessed with good neighbors . The cottage next to this one looks closed with caution tape and so that was empty . We brought our kayaks and loved kayaking in the bay . Good times ! I can’t wait to return . :)
Debbie P.May 2021
Loved staying at this cottage with our two dogs. The kitchen was well equipped and basic supplies of paper towels, dish soap, sponge etc. we’re provided. Bed in master was comfortable and loved the big shower. The cottage was on a dead end so mostly quiet but other cottages are very close so neighbors can be noisy depending who you end up next too. Windmark beach is a short drive away and you have the option of going on the beach from two access points. The cottage is located between Mexico Beach and Port St Joe so lots of options for day trips.
Kim H.Apr 2021
My sisters and I have stayed in this cottage twice. It is conveniently located in the Forgotten coast area. Its perfect for us.
Michael I.Nov 2020
Great layout, beautifully decorated. Great to have cable to enjoy our favorite sports teams. Loved how its tucked away in the neighborhood. Not too far of a walk from the parking. Furnished well with kitchen and supplies.
Heather B.Oct 2020
Everything was great! We have 5 ladies meet for 4 nights, we made great memories the house and location was perfect for us.
Patrick C.Oct 2020
The location was great! Place was very nice and perfect for our small family! Loved how you walked through nature and all around beauty of the location!
Thy B.Aug 2020
We enjoyed ourselves all weekend at Port St Joe and we came back from excursions to a beautiful cottage every day. Place was just perfect. My daughter loved the bunk beds. She didn’t want to leave when we started to pack up. We had a little trouble with the door but learned if we pull the door in and put code it. Everything was fine. We will definitely use them again if/when we are in the area.
Tina M.Jul 2020
Nice, peaceful, clean and spacious. Very inviting. As soon as you step through the door it feels like home. Friendly neighbors and my kids loved it, especially the pool and riding their bikes! Definitely will return.
Stephanie B.Jul 2020
I came down with two other co-workers and their teenage daughters for a girl’s getaway. This was perfect. Close to the beach. Pool was nice. I enjoyed the gated community. People were nice. I enjoyed going for a walk at night. The cottage is roomy. We only had 5 people so there was plenty of sleeping space. We drove over to Cape San Blas for a day trip to the beach. I plan to visit again with my family.

The home has everything you will need!
Melinda J.Jun 2020
The Barefoot cottages have nice residents and it's in a good location. Beware GPS will send you to the wrong location, so you may need to use Google maps to get an accurate map. This cottage is fine for a family of six. Only 1/2 mile from Windmark beach and there is an outdoor shower there. Or about 5 more miles to Mexico beach with no showers, but more waves! Parking was never an issue. The pool at Barefoot cottages was great! Our cottage needs some TLC. Just a few minor things that we reported while here, but did not get any response during our stay. I'm sure they will take the necessary steps to get things cleaned up before the next guests arrive. It was a bit sad to see this community of such nice people still recovering from hurricane damage. We wish you a wonderful stay.
Thank you for staying with us, Melinda! We are glad you enjoyed the home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!

Beautifully decorated cottage in a central location.
Jessica H.Jan 2020
We loved the area, the home, the decor, the bunk beds. There was mold in our unit which I hope will be addressed before our next trip to PSJ. The area was beautiful in spite of recent hurricanes. There was construction going on next door during our 9 day stay. However, I assume that is taking place all over the area. I would recommend staying if mild in laundry room and on fridge were addressed. The towel rack and curtain rod along with the freezer door handle were all broken or falling off as well. Otherwise it was comfortable and an enjoyable trip.
Hello Jessica, thank you for your review. We apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. The freezer handle, towel bar, and any mold or mildew issues have been addressed. We hope to host you again, soon!
David I.Jul 2019
A group of my friends who are moms stayed here and enjoyed a wonderful get away! The cottage was nicely decorated with a fully stocked kitchen. There were plenty of beds and two screened in porches. We enjoyed quiet mornings and evenings on the porches reading and sipping coffee. We drove about 30 min to the state park on the gulf and the beach there was perfect! It was not crowded and we had access to food and restrooms. We enjoyed the restaurants in the area at night. We will definitely be returning!
Jan R.Jul 2019
Einfach nur schön. Port St Joe ist zauberhaft. Der Pool ist in wenigen Schritten zu erreichen. Das Haus ist super ausgestattet und wunderschön! Wenn wir die Möglichkeit haben kommen wir gerne wieder.
Ken C.Sep 2018
We loved the peaceful location of this cottage. It was so cute and well decorated. It was just a short walk to the pool. Brittany, the manager, was very helpful when we had questions! We will be staying here again!
LAURA M F.Aug 2018
Spacious and nicely decorated.
John A.Jul 2018
If you are looking for a quiet get away with all the comforts of home and more this is the place to stay. My family absolutely enjoyed the stay. You are a short drive to multiple beaches without all the crowds.
Shawna S.Jul 2018
The cottage was adorable. The decor was tastefully done and more importantly, it was clean! They provided some basic cleaning supplies, which was a nice touch. The unit/cottage we were in does not face the pool, but was set back and secluded making it super quiet. Having a toddler, we chose to drive to the beach each day as it wasn’t a reasonable walking distance for us. The area isn’t commercialized making it the perfect BEACH getaway! 🙂
amy f.Jul 2018
I booked a last minute trip to Port St. Joe and found our cottage happened to be available for a 2 night stay that we needed. We loved this cottage and will plan to book again in the future. The screened in porch on main level and upper level were nice to have! The inside of the cottage was very clean and decorated very tastefully. Not one complaint! The beach was a short drive and we had easy access to a large shared pool at the cottage. We met many people from all over the U.S. that were staying for the first time in barefoot cottages and were loving it also! We all enjoyed being away from the nearby more popular destinations that are much busier. Loved our quick trip to Port St. Joe!
Cassidy S.Jul 2018
We have stayed at this house multiple times and continue returning. It feels like home. Each room is decorated so cute, and the entire house is so inviting. The kitchen is well-stocked and the provided amenitities make everything so convenient. The pools on site are great, and the whole property is picture-perfect.
Roger K.Jun 2018
The villa was beautiful, the photos do not do it justice. Everything you need is provided, except beach towels.......we always bring our own anyway. The villa was very clean and we loved having a washer/dryer in the unit. The cottages are very close to the beaches, town, and great seafood restaurants. We would definitely stay again. My wife is a Florida native, but had not spent any time in the Port St. Joe area, so we didn't quite know what to expect. We were looking for a quiet, uncrowded experience, and that is just we got. The beaches were wide and long so you didn't feel like you were right on top of someone else. The fishing was great too! Caught more than enough for several dinners! Hated to leave!!!
BETHANY K.Jun 2018
This cottage is just as beautiful as the pictures!! The floor and counters had a few sticky spots (that came up with a baby wipe) and the silverware is very top heavy (funny and not ideal). But it was comfortable, plenty of space for my family of four, BEAUTIFUL, enjoyable, and I LOVED that Vacasa provided initial toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish detergent and even enough laundry detergent for one load. Plus shampoo and conditioner and soap! It had the comforts of home with the ease of a hotel. Very very well stocked kitchen! Just beautiful. Oh! And it isn’t actually overlooking the pool like the pictures make it seem. But we were glad to be tucked back in a more private spot anyway! Whoever decorated it did a great job too. I love the map picture in the second bedroom!
Tameka B.Jun 2018
Our place was great! It had everything we needed, it was just like home! Beautifully decorated, loved the porches. Definitely booking again!
Trish H.May 2018
The issue we had was that a day before our arrival, my daughter was diagnosed with staph infection. I contacted them and instead of refunding my money they were just going to add extra chemicals to the pool if she got in.
Jennifer S.Apr 2018
Very well appointed cottage in brand new condition. Loved staying here & would definitely choose this location again.
Kim H.Mar 2018
The place was very nice and clean. There was plenty of room for us.
Sarah W.Mar 2018
A couple of girl friends and i rented the house for a long weekend and it was wonderful! The neighbors were sweet, the pool was quiet, it was at a great location! Clean and would defiantly stay again!
James J.Jan 2018
A Very Nicely Appointed Cottage. Good Location ! Very Quite ! Nice Large Shower. Looked Like It was freshly Painted !
Michael H.Nov 2017
Beautiful condo, responsive hosts, great location. Would definitely recommend for a headquarters in the Apalachicola area.
Silke M.Oct 2017
we all enjoyed our stay in this pretty house in Port St. Joe. We loved the pictures, but in reality it is much better!!!
Brenan S.Sep 2017
This is a cute little complex with a mix of full-time residents and renters like us. The house itself was charming as all can be - very visitor friendly. Great set up with kitchen and living room. Nice big porches with hose to wash off the beach sand. Quiet pool nearby was appreciated (along with the hot tub).
Nawana W.Sep 2017
The house was super cute, clean, and equipped with everything needed to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. I would definitely stay there again.
Kecia J.Aug 2017
Our cottage was just as pictured, perfectly clean and well decorated. Very comfortable beds and furniture. The area is quiet and quaint. The pool was refreshing and the location is good as a base for visiting all the area has to offer.
Darleen H.Aug 2017
Very nice place , peaceful and very nice house
Yolanda T.Jul 2017
Adorable cottages in a gated community. The cottage was very clean and looked brand new with all the updated decor and appliances. I will definitely stay there again in the future!
Scott S.Jul 2017
Great place. Well decorated and everything we needed.
Yvette M.Jul 2017
I wanted to get away by myself for a couple days. This was the perfect place to do that. It really was too much condo for one person, it is really for a family, but the area was exactly what I was looking for. The condo was beautiful! It had everything anyone could need. Just wish I could of stayed longer.
Gayle L.Jun 2017
The property was clean and neat. The staff greeted us with a kind and pleasant welcome.
The cottage was not completed by 4 so there was a delay in settling into the cottage.
Overall it was a good experience, yet would have loved for the property to have been ready when we arrived.
Janaina P.Jun 2017
We enjoyed the property a lot.
Joe M.Jun 2017
I was very pleased with the property! I booked for a fishing trip and will definetley stay again! Very comfortable and roomy for several people!
