Ok it was a difficult decision on the rating but here are the details. The place is nice, needs some work because there are holes in the wall of guest bathroom and a lot of the furniture is stained and a bit gross looking. The Unit Has everything you need though and it is a very quiet area with a really nice pool. The real problem is I work from home so I had to do some work while staying. The WiFi password did not work and when calling the company that runs the rental they said they would have the property manager contact us. Never heard a word from them so we had to drive 45 minutes to Walmart to get an ethernet cable in order to plug directly into modem. It was incredibly frustrating that no one bothered to get with us on correcting this. We love St. Joe but will probably pick a different place in the future. Also, the guest toilet wouldn't flush at times but didn't even bother to call since we couldn't get a response on the WiFi. The place would be great with a fresh coat of paint, new furniture and better response on issues but we were a bit disappointed.
We felt very comfortable at this location. Condo was clean and had everything we needed as far as appliances, utensils, storage containers etc. Updated appliances. Pull out sofa mattress was not comfortable (could feel metal bars) at all but, I find that in all pull outs. Master bed mattress you could feel the coils. Pool was great for our 9 yr. old. Mexico beach was in perfect proximity. Stopped in Panama City before checking in and got that out of our system. I did notice other condos provided boogie boards and folding chairs to use at the beach and it would have been very convenient. Otherwise, we would definetly stay again.
We had a great time. Pictures and Description were accurate and the company was great to work with. Proximity to pool was nice and the development was very quiet. Plenty of space for a family. Beach area in Windmark was a short drive (less than a mile) and enjoyed the trail a lot. Mexico Beach was only a few minutes away with ample parking. Downtown Port St Joe was a gem- enjoyed Provisions, Peppers and Joe Mama's Pizza. We also did an excursion into Panama City for a day (only an hour drive). I would definitely recommend this spot and would stay here again. Only suggestion would be to have a more comfortable sofa in the den:) Great Spot and Great Time
Our family enjoyed the Barefoot cottage property and the place. Its just down from the pool which was really convenient. It was comfortable and had everything we need. The kitchen could be stocked a little bit better but was sufficient.
I booked this cottage last minute for a short getaway for our 5 year anniversary. I love Port Saint Joe and was excited for a relaxing few days. The cottage was right next to the pool and hot tub. There weren't many other people in our section of the community, so it was very private! The cottage worked out perfected for the two of us. It was a great price for the few days we were there. My only issues and suggestions for the cottage would be to fix the front screen door where the bottom is bent in so bugs cannot get in and definitely rip out the carpet on the second floor. It was pretty disgusting. The carpet had been vacuumed but was very stained and nasty looking. I would highly recommend wood flooring. Other than that, it worked out well! Thanks!
