About Jen and Cliff

We are originally from Colorado, and have fallen in love with this fun, relaxing beach town. We purchased this home to live in before the Army decided to move us. We simply hope that this home can bring other families and friends lots of joy during their visit to gorgeous Destin.

Jen and Cliff purchased this house in 2015

Why Jen and Cliff chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We would love to move back to Destin in a few years, raise our family here, and possibly even retire here. This house has everything we could ask for; a pool, a spa, plenty of open space and high ceilings, a 2-car garage, and a safe beautiful neighborhood. As if that isn't enough, it is walking distance to the most beautiful beach in the country! What is not to like?

Great home, great price, great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! The house is only a few blocks to the beach, and the owner gave us a golf cart to use as well for free! These people really take care of you. The pool is huge compared to most that we have stayed with in the past. You won't be disappointed!

Fun home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Many "pros" with this property as it is a very nice and spacious home. Well furnished with flat screens in all bedrooms. The Wifi was dependable which was important when checking in at the office. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet and provided a calm/safe place to walk our dogs. The pool is a good size for a family and offered a cool dip after a day on the beach. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes and the private beach area is definitely a plus. Beach umbrella service was available and convenient. We rented a golf cart and the owners had it ready and waiting for us at the house. With these hassle-free conveniences, all we had to do was show up and have fun. The home owners were very easy to work with and was not intrusive, at all. The cons were few. The beds were a bit too firm and we didn't have an iron but these were minor things. We had a fantastic family vacation at Barefoot Escape.

Relaxing vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house had everything we needed including bikes, beach wagon, floats for beach and pool. Very nice pool and short walk to the beautiful beach. The reason for 4 stars is because of uncomfortable beds. 2 rooms were comfortable (master and queen guest room) However the bunk bed was not very stable and the top bunk is very close to the rough, popcorn ceiling. My child bumped her head several times. So we tried the pull out couch, which was uncomfortable. Besides that, the house was great.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Barefoot Escape was perfect for our recent family vacation. We chose it because of the pool an we're not disappointed. The kids were able to swim whenever they wanted. Close to the beach and great places to eat. Would definitely come back again.
