About the owner: You know that country song, "A little bit country, a little bit rock & roll"? That's us! I'm a country girl from the mountains of Upstate NY & he's a sweet, southern guy who spent the 80's rockin' & partying in St Pete Beach. We met in the Orlando area after we had both moved there in the late 90's. We both love the beach & St Pete is "home" to him so it made perfect sense for us to purchase our 2nd home in that area. Together, with our entrepreneurial son, we chose to purchase our condo in Indian Shores, which is also 20 minutes from his in-laws. It's a perfect place for our family & we feel blessed every day to have the opportunity to enjoy it as well as share it.
Why this property? We first stayed at Barefoot Beach several years ago as guests. Of all the beaches in Florida, the Gulf beaches are our favorites & we absolutely fell in love with Indian Shores. It's a quiet community with clean, uncrowded beaches & close to everything we enjoy when we're at the beach. It was our dream to own a condo at Barefoot Beach & in August of 2019, that dream became a reality. It's our home-away-from-home ,our little slice of paradise & we're so happy to share it with our guests. You'll fall it love with it, just the way we did!

Dave, it's always a pleasure having you & your wife as our guests!
We had a great time. The weather was good. We took the Jolly Trolley everyday. We did not rent a car this time and did just fine. Went to John's pass and went fishing and ate our catch at the fisherman's rest next to the fishing. They cooked and gave us two sides for 11.00 it was great. The beach is the very best!
