About The Owner

We both grew up going to the beach on vacation. Once we discovered 30A, we loved it! Between the charming cottage style homes, the beautiful beaches, and the clear water we fell in love with the area. We even got engaged at sunset in Seagrove Beach!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Santa Rosa Beach

We wanted a home close to the beach with a private pool. Barefoot Baby was perfect. It is located inside a gated community with no streets to cross and private beach access. Plus, we have our own pool. My favorite thing to do is grill fresh fish on our natural gas grill while the kids play in the pool in the evenings!

What makes this house unique

Barefoot Baby has an open floor plan which allows for a large crowd in the main living area. We added on a large eating area to accommodate 10-12 people. We expanded the kitchen and added new cabinets, granite counters and tile floors. It is not only a beautiful house but it is a home where families come to vacation year after year.

October Fall Break Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Barefoot Baby over our Fall Break with our boys. The reservation process was very easy, and the owner answered all my questions promptly before arrival. Upon walking in, the house looked clean and spacious. We cooked in all meals for the week and had plenty of cooking utensils provided. We did bring extra paper products, detergents and soaps for the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms which were needed as there are only starter packs provided. Publix is about a 10 min drive and there are several restaurants and stores within walking distance of Barefoot Baby.

It takes about 2 minutes to walk to the beach. We had our 2 younger boys with us, and it's an easy walk even with carrying chairs, a tent, cooler bag and beach toys. The beach was not crowded at all. It was beautiful during our stay, and it was also nice coming back to a private pool after being at the beach all day. We even stayed poolside one of the days. We had requested the pool be heated for our first 2 days, and it was a good decision. The pool water was much colder than the gulf water. We did have to call maintenence to come out and turn the heater on, and he was out there within 20 min of our call. As for the pool itself, it was very clean upon arrival and someone stopped by and cleaned it while we were there as well. It is a good size; much larger than any of the other pools around.

We would definitely stay at Barefoot Baby again; however, there are a few things that could be done to make the house even better. First, the entire house could use a fresh coat of paint. The colors are great, they just need refreshened. Second, the outside area at the pool needs picking up. There are table umbrellas that need throwing away and several beach chairs and floaters piled up in a corner. I'm assuming these are left from vacationers because the description of the rental says none of these items are provided. A good large deck box would be great to store these items and would make the area look cleaner. As for the pool seating areas, there are 3 tables with chairs and 2 lounge chairs with a small table. One of lounge chairs needs replacing.

Overall, we are very pleased with our stay. We would recommend Barefoot Baby to other vacationers.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your vacation at Barefoot Baby! Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Nate wreaked havoc on our pool furniture. Thank you for letting us know. We had all the broken pieces removed from the pool area and will be painting the home this winter. We hope to see you back at Barefoot Baby soon!

Great house for a family vacation! Quiet neighborhood, beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our family vacation. We were with another family; each couple had their own room and the kids shared the bunk room. The pool was one of the largest in the neighborhood; we loved being able to grill and watch kids in the pool at the same time. The kitchen had everything we could need, and then some. It was a short walk to the beach, and the beach was never crowded. The house was within walking distance of a few shops and restaurants. This was our first time in Santa Rosa Beach, and we will definitely be back!
