Barefoot Beach Resort

This particular unit had a beautiful view and back sitting area on the waterway. Beautiful sunrise. Outside area wonderfully maintained. This unit was well worth the cost. Very nice owner.

I am so happy you had the time to spend with your beautiful granddaughter and you chose my condo to enjoy your stay. Maybe I will see you next year!

Absolutely Magnificent

We planned to marry while on vacation and booked Mary Ellen's condo for the week. Upon arrival there was a bottle of sparkling wine along with champagne glasses, a plate of cookies and soft music playing in the background. What a wonderful touch! The condo was decorated beautifully, it was immaculate and the view spectacular. Morning coffee on the back patio overlooking the water and dolphin watching every morning, what more could you ask for! Beach access across the street, stores and restaurants near by and for those who didn't want to deal with driving up and down Gulf Blvd., there was trolley service. The condo was equipped with beach chairs, umbrella and even boogie boards for kids. The pool was relaxing and very clean. I can't say enough about the condo and the hospitality of Mary Ellen which was A1. I would definitely stay at her condo again and highly recommend it to anyone who loves the water, the views and the night life. We found ourselves at J.D.'s a few times for music and drinks, and there are restaurants galore for all types of dining. Mary Ellen has covered all the bases with places to visit, dine and even shop. Thanks again Mary Ellen for your hospitality and beautiful condo!!

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Well thank you so much Mrs. Alviar! I hope you will come back and stay for 1 of your many anniversaries to come. It was my pleasure having you as my guests for such a memorable occasion.... your wedding.

owner, condo, weather and sunset just perfect

We vacationed in Indian Shores in August it is the perfect location for a family with kids, we loved the condo, it was very clean, roomy and nicely decorated, Mary Ellen is very nice and welcoming, we would definitely stay here again !!! Thanks Mary Ellen

Owner's reply:

You are very welcome Vanessa. I enjoyed meeting your family and hope you come back and stay longer..........good luck in school this year!

Perfect Getaway With A Personal Touch!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in Mary Ellen's condo this past week for a few days and we could not have enjoyed it more! When we arrived, Mary Ellen had homemade cookies waiting for us on the table, and also had soft music playing in the background. She really makes you feel at home and is genuinely concerned that you enjoy your stay and have everything that you need. The condo is fully equipped, beautifully decorated and the perfect size for a couple or a small family. There is an amazing back patio right outside the back door where we sat and watched the sunrise each morning while having breakfast. What a gorgeous view! The beach is just a few steps away from the condo where we spent hours relaxing and shell collecting. The location is convenient to everything and the resort has it's own private beach access. After staying in this condo, I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we visit the beautiful Indian Shores Beach. Mary Ellen is an absolute pleasure to rent from and her condo is a true GEM! We cannot wait to come back and stay longer!

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Lori and Bryan, Wow thanks for the amazing review! Its always nice to have fellow Floridians venture out to the Gulf Coast. Glad you relaxed and enjoyed yourselves. Maybe next time we will meet, and sit and talk awhile on the patio. You will always be welcome back.



Just Perfect

This was a beautiful condo in a perfect location. It was clean and comfortable. Parking never a problem. Beach is a short walk across gulf blvd. Sitting in the back area of the condo after a day at the beach was very relaxing. Plenty of beach chairs available in the condo. Overall this condo was very comfortable and felt like home. Maryellen was very informative and makes herself available for any questions you may have. I look forward to my next trip and sorry I couldn't stay longer. Thank you Maryellen

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Chuck I am glad you enjoyed yourself and were able to go on a few bike rides. Come back anytime and stay longer!

Andrea Gagnon Suarez

Atlanta, Ga

Awesome views!

I chose Mary Ellen's place based on all the preceeding wonderful reviews! The place is perfect and the views from her back porch are incredible. It was so wonderful being able to eat outside literally steps from the intercostal. So relaxing! I spent every morning out there. Great for fishing also:). The walk to the beach is very manageable and I have three little kids and it was very easy every day. Had we had the view of the ocean then we wouldn't have been able to enjoy all the time we spent on her back porch enjoying the calm waters of the intercostal. You really have the best of both worlds. The condo is cozy, clean and very comfortable. We would totally go back to this one!!:)

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Andrea. It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely family. Please keep me in mind for your future stays in Indian Shores.

Experience perfection

This is truly a perfect vacation condo! The location is great and the view is amazing. I loved the outside patio with table chairs & picket fence--so coastal. We spent our time fishing off the sea wall, and saw all kinds of marine life, walking the beautiful grounds, and loved the pool. The beach is a short walk away & there is a nice crosswalk to assist in getting across the street. Everything you may need for a beach trip is also supplied in the unit. The inside of the condo is decorated to perfection and gives you such a beachy feeling. It is well maintained, clean, and has good, quality furnishings. The owner supplied fresh baked cookies and was absolutely wonderful to deal with. I definitely would return and also will recommend it to my friends and family.

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Thank you Debbie. I am glad everyone enjoyed their time at the beach. Hope to see you again.

This is our 2nd visit and we enjoyed it even more than our 1st. The condo is beautifully furnished and completely stocked with everything you could need.Very convenient to everything! We hate to leave such a great relaxing place, but we know we will be back.

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Always a pleasure to have you as my guest Jackie. I know your family loves having you visit them!

We stayed at the condo for our honeymoon and fell in love! Mary Ellen had cookies and left soft music on for us to walk into. Everything was so clean and perfect! We were happy to find after the wedding that she even came to our wedding that night! It felt like a home away from home! Mary Ellen was even so nice to let us check in a little early so myself and the rest of the girls could get ready for the wedding seperate from the guys. The view was amazing! We sat out back everyday and night, and while we sat outside our last day we saw stingrays! I can't wait to come back and stay here again! My parents loved it so much too they are thinking about a winter get away here too! Thank you Mary Ellen for everything you did to make our stay great!

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

and a beautiful wedding it was! So happy for you both. Please come back anytime, maybe for your 1st Anniversary as Mr. and Mrs.

Great Condo in Indian Shores, FL

Terrific condo--has everything needed for a great vacation. The owner is wonderful, even bakes chocolate chip cookies to welcome you to the condo! Super location--near good restaurants, attractions, and the beach. Great view of the intercostal water from the private patio.

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Paula. I love my repeat guests. I was so impressed with your traveling so far on your motorcycle!!

wonderful beach trip

My family had a wonderful vacation at Indian Shores. It was in a perfect location, not so crowded. Yet it was close to all the great attraction of Tampa and Clearwater. The condo was beautiful and very comfortable.

Owner's reply:

Thanks Pam, hope to see you again at Barefoot!

Wilburn Hill

Perfect Condo

We always read reviews before selecting a place to stay. All that we read were right on target. Mary Ellen's condo is very pretty, nice, clean and has everything you would need to feel right at home and comfortable. It's easy to get to, right on the water and only a few steps from the pool, which is also very pretty. We enjoyed our stay, and oh yes, the cookies were great. Mary Ellen is very easy to work with. We have never found anyone so gracious. Thanks! If we get a chance to go back to Indian Shores, we will choose this condo again if available.

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Wilbur and Sara, I always enjoy hearing people had a nice time at the condo,and better yet you had a great time with your family!

Beautiful condo-Beautiful view- Amazing owner!

It has everything you could need from beach supplies to a fully equipped kitchen!The pool is absolutely beautiful located right on the the water and just a few second walk along the beautiful intercostal waterway from the back door of the condo! One of the best restaurants in the area is also located within a few second walk, Salt Rock Grill. There is a beach access also within a few second walk! Overall this condo is the perfect spot for a great beach vacation and is close to many restaurants, shopping, bars, grocery stores, and so much more! Not to mention the owner MaryEllen is one of the most hospitable people you will ever meet that makes your stay feel amazingly special! Cannot wait to rent it again!!

Little piece of Heaven

This is an AWSOME PLACE!!! My family and I stay here every Summer starting in May through August. Maryellen is the owner and you wont fine anyone nicer on the whole strip then her!! The condo is beautifuly decorated and all you'll ever need to make it a memorable Summer is right there. From the beach towels to the shovels you name it it's there. We will not stay at any other place then at Maryellens. When you think of an AWSOME VACATION you have to think of her and this magical place. Our favorite restaurant is right next door and our boat sits comfortably on the slip. So it's all right there. Thanks Maryellen for this little piece of Heaven on the Beach.

Great Condo - Great Owner - Wonderful Experience

My husband and I stayed at Mary Ellen's condo, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We walked in to soft music, lovely condo, and the aroma of fresh baked cookies - which tasted as good as they smelled. The condo was clean, comfortable, and more than we had anticipated. The private patio was a big plus - and the heated pool nearby was wonderful since the Gulf waters were still a bit chilly in April. I would recommend this condo to anyone staying in the Indian Shores area. The nearby coffee shop offered French pastries, and Salt Rock Grill, just next door, was a special treat. Even the walk across the street to the beach was pleasant. You couldn't ask for more!

Hope you come back Karen

Great vacation

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Holiday Villas II. Our family, from the youngest (17) to the oldest (73) had a wonderful week. The weather was perfect, the lodging was very accomodating and the location was great for our interests.

Mary Ellen Fitzpatrick Ifft

Owner's reply:

Thanks Darlene for the review, even though I don't own at Holiday Villas II.. lol stay with me next!

Mary Ellen was very accommodating to our arrival schedule. We had a great 2 day vacation at Indian Rocks - sun, fun, shopping, relaxing, swimming at both the beach and the pool, scootering to Clearwater, and eating at Salt Rock Cafe. I loved our clean well stocked condo. It definitely was a highlight to stay at such a perfect condo. Thanks Mary Ellen for renting to us.

Amazing Vacation

We spent labor day weekend at the condo and had a wonderful time! The unit is beautiful and you couldnt ask for a better view!! Sitting on the patio was my favorite thing to do each evening. The beach is right across the street and Mary Ellen provides chairs, umbrellas, coolers you name it!! We definitely will be comming back again! :)

Love having you..........

"Heavenly Corner"

The condo was superb, exactly as described and more. Previous reviews were more than accurate with every comfort you could wish and a perfect location for Clearwater, St Pete's and all the restaurants. Mary Ellen's condo has all the best options with the patio overlooking the intercoastal waterway, perfect for those alfresco dinners and watching sunrises. Mary Ellen gave us some good advice on local points of interest and the best places to eat, but have to say her own cookies took some beating, very nice touch and oh so welcoming. We can't wait to visit again.... Just Great!! Couldn't ask for more!!!

A little piece of paradise!

This condo is a gem. Location, location, location! It's tastefully decorated, has everythig you need at home and the beach, and is neat as a pin. The entire resort is beautifully maintained. Mary Ellen is a pleasure to deal with. I'm sure she even arranged for the sunny hot weather (high 80's) to warm our Canadian spirits. What a treat to sit in the backyard with our morning coffee, watch the boats go by and enjoy the scenery. If I tell any more, Mary Ellen's condo will always be booked and I'll never be able to get another reservation. We're definitely planning on going back.

Linda Doulides

Mary Ellen's condo can't be beat!

The beach, the pool, and the nice warm sun, and watching dolphins, manatee and birds is so much fun. Restaurants nearby with great stuff to eat, MaryEllen's condo just can't be beat! Everything you need is there for you, chairs and umbrellas and tv, too. Breakfast on the patio watching boats go by, a shower for two, just give it a try! We're ready to leave, just don't want to go, but we'll come back soon, this we know!

Katherine Eleanor Ambrose

Altamonte Springs, FL

Fabulous place, Perfect location

As other reviewers have already said, Mary Ellen's Condo is beautifully decorated and has Everything you might need. It's very hard to convey how gorgeous the view is from the porch. I wish we had a boat, as we could have docked right there. We had breakfast outside with gulls, herons and ducks. The beach is right across the street, we couldn't believe how close we were. My kid loved the heated community pool. Mary Ellen is a wonderful host and a great cookie-baker; yum!

Susan Keiper

Loved it

This condo is cute and charming. The area is clean, friendly and safe with lots of sunshine and good food. Miles of Gulf Beach coastline just across the street with easy public access.Mary Ellen was the perfect hostess.. She made the stay so easy and happy for us.. We will definitely be back and stay at her condo again....just longer next time, and will recommend it to anyone who asks for a nice place to stay in FL. It's a real bargain!!!!!

It's a WINNER!!

If you want to feel like you've come home (or perhaps even a step up) come to Mary Ellen's condo. If you were to 'live' there for any length of time, there is very little that you would need to take. It is very well equipped, very quiet, extremely comfortable with easy access to the beach, shopping and dining. Mary Ellen has definitely put her visitors first when she prepared her condo for rental.

Paula Goodrich


Fantastic Experience

Mary Ellen provides the complete vacation experience--immaculate condo, comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen, excellent location, and a very deep interest in providing the extra touches which made our stay at her condo wonderful and relaxing. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Mary Ellen is great to work with. We're already looking forward to our next stay at her condo.

Cathy Hall

This place is Wonderful....clean, quite, close to everything you will need to have a great vacation. I would stay here again.


Savannah, GA

More Bang for Your Buck

This unit was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! You get the best of both worlds with the waterway in the back and just steps from the beach in the front. Mary Ellen had everything that we needed from chairs and towels to fishing poles. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and Mary Ellen was so sweet enough and left cheese and crackers, strawberries and wine in the fridge for our arrival! You just do not meet many people who are genuinly thoughtful and trusting! She works with you to make sure you are completely satisfied with your stay. The location gives great dining options and Mary Ellen provides a book of menus and places she likes best to help with the decision. Not too far from major attractions i.e. Busch Gardens and Sea World. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay without blowing your savings we definitely recommend staying at Mary Ellen's place. Thank you so much for a wonderful week and honeymoon!

A Gem

We truly lucked out in selecting Mary Ellen's condo from the numerous web listings for the area. Located between Clearwater and St. Pete, it affords an easy hop to a variety of restaurants from pubs to classy Italian to seafood. If you prefer outdoor activities less sedentary than sitting on a beach there are many nearby parks for hiking and biking. Ft. DeSoto Park near St. Pete is great for both and has two fishing piers. The Pinellas Trail nearby offers many miles of paved trail through the area. But the gem is the condo itself. Condition is like-new, furnishings are attractive and comfortable, and the kitchen is well-equipped. Mary Ellen made us feel more like guests at her vacation home rather than renters, and very thoughtfully left some nice welcoming goodies for us.

The condo was perfect nicely decorated equiped with everthing we needed.Great location between intercoastal and ocean. John the owner chaked to see that we were settled in and gave good advice about restaurants and golf.

Roberta Sipe

Wonderful, relaxing stay!

After getting burned for two straight years in one-bedroom condos, we stumbled upon Mary Ellen's property. It was MORE than we expected and would recommend it to anyone. The unit had plenty of space, up-to-date furnishings, lots of fresh towels, comfortable bed and linens, and all the little touches that you wouldn't expect - a complimentary bottle of wine, beach items such as chairs, umbrella etc. We have already booked for next year and hope to continue to do so for a long time!

Cathy Hamilton

Great Stay!!

My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Mary Ellen's Condo. We arrived in the evening to have a pleasant surprise with the lights on for us, the ceiling fans and soft music playing, very nice personal touch. Very well cared for Unit and Intercoastal frontage, what more can you ask for! Great location to most anything you could want and easy beach access, very clearly marked with pavers across Gulf Blvd. We had a great stay and love the area. Do yourself a favor and book your stay with Mary Ellen.

Ric Bernabe

Madison, NJ

Just fabulous!

Opening the front door to Mary Ellen's condo was like walking into a vacation villa in Disney. The smell of the condo smelled like vacation land. The unit is decorated so tastefully and colorfull you would think you are in a model home. As soon as you unpack you feel as though you have been living there for ever. I sat down on the couch and all my troubles and stress just disapeared. The condo is fully stocked with nothing left to chance. The shower, with its duel shower heads was just wonderful. The unit is beyond clean and cheerful. Having stayed in the best hotels in the area, I would have to say Mary Ellen's is just the best! I would also have to say that Mary Ellen is also the best! Anne and I would like to sincerely thank you for your kindness and we look forward to staying in your paridise again. Sincerely, Ric & Anne. P.S. we'll see you again at Guppy's!

Fabulous Condo, spotless and great location

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Mary Ellen's condo. The condo had all we needed for a week in Florida, will pack less next time! We arrived really late after flight delays and really appreciated Mary Ellen's hospitality. The condo is in a great position in the Barefoot Beach resort, the dolphins visited daily and a great wee cheeky short cut to Salt Rock steps away from the condo. Thanks again Mary Ellen - hope to stay with you again.

Best vacation condo we have ever stayed at

My husband and I have returned from a wonderful 10 days at Mary Ellen's condo - the condo was spotless and Mary Ellen was there to meet us when we arrived. We loved sitting out every morning on the patio having breakfast and reading the news paper and what a surprise to see the dolphins. It was so peaceful. The condo has absolutely everything you would want - beach towels, coolers, noodles, beach toys, etc. and all you need is your bathing suit and a toothbrush. Just across the road is the beautiful beach where we sat each night to watch the sunset. Great restaurants - especially Guppy's - our favorite - and Mary Ellen has a book with all information in the area. You will never go wrong staying here. We loved it and will definitely be back.

Mary Ellen's Condo is Amazing!

We are just back from one of the best family vacations ever! My parents were lucky enough to have stayed in Mary Ellen's amazing condo! The pictures you see on the site are right on, everything is pristine! We came over from our condo to gather for family meals on the patio overlooking the intracoastal while watching dolphins, shore birds and boaters pass by. The condo is immaculate and is equipped with everything you need to make your vacation complete - pool toys, beach chairs/towels, etc. Mary Ellen goes above and beyond to make sure your vacation time is a pleasure, complete with a guide containing area information. Further, the resort has an A+ pool area and is just across the street from the beach where we swam with a manatee! If you're lucky enough to find the condo available, don't hesitate, book now before we beat you to it! Thank you again, Mary Ellen!

Amazing Time!!!

My husband & I stayed at Mary Ellen's condo as a last vacation before we have our first child this August. We had such an amazing time-the condo is just as beautiful/clean as the photos and the location is perfect! The pool area was very tidy & not crowded at all-even on the hottest of days. The beach is right across the street & has amazing white sand. Mary Ellen went above & beyond our expectations, anticipating anything we might have needed. I will truly treasure each morning waking up & having breakfast on the patio watching the dolphins in the intercoastal waters. We will definitely be returning as a family in the near future. Thanks so much again Mary Ellen-know your subtle touches & attention to hospitality are not overlooked!!! Nick & Krystal Ritzema



Cozy waterfront accomadations

This was a very nice and clean 1 bedroom condo between the intracostal and gulf. Mary Ellen was very welcoming with her special touches in the decor of the unit and the helpful binder full of suggestions for restaurants and entertainment. It is always a joy to stay somewhere that the owner has such pride in ownership and hospitality! This is a very quaint safe residential area with everything within a 10 minute drive (Clearwater to the north and Madeira Beach to the south). The best part of the day was sitting on the patio in the morning having coffee and watching the seabirds and dolphins frolicking in the bay. If you want relaxation and good old fashioned quality family time without all the glitz then stay at Barefoot Beach Resort and rent from Mary Ellen. We were sure glad we did! Thanks Mary Ellen!

Lived up to expectations

Mary Ellen has a beautiful condo, everything you need, her welcome book was very helpful, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly rent from her again

Reserve Quickly

Better get reservations early because I am coming back next year, if not sooner. Mary has a great spot. Just outside her back door we saw dolphins and other fun critters. Across the street at the beach we saw plenty of white sand and great waves. My biggest complaint is that my wife and I could only stay a week.



The best of both worlds.

This place has it all! What more can I say? We are returning for a longer visit in January. Can't wait!

Great Location

A week certainly wasn't long enough! Very relaxing environment and lovely view. Mary Ellen has equipped this condo with everything. Nicely decorated, exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Looking forward to returning to Barefoot.



great place

Mary Ellens condo is wonderful. I was in the area looking to buy a home and stayed there. The view is gorgeous. The condo has everything you need and is very clean.

The best location on the beach

We stayed at Mary Ellen's condo the week of the 4th of July. We were very impressed. We have stayed at similar locations but NOTHING compared to Mary's place. Neither price or comfort. I have a boat and it was great we could dock the boat right outside her door, we were 20 minutes from John's Pass and 20 minutes from Clearwater Pass by boat. The boat ramp is a a few 100 yards away. We had access to private beach which we saw the BEST fireworks on the 4th we have ever seen. Everything you need is there the just bring your food and a smile. Mary has thought of everything. The facilites are spotless as well as the condo. Best vacation we have had in years. We are already looking forward to return very soon. I wouldnt imagine staying anywhere else on the Beach. I have referred many to Mary Ellen and will continue to do so. Thanks again Mary Ellen, will see you soon

Great Place to Stay

The owner is very nice. The condo is very nice, clean, and stocked with everything you need. We saw dolphins with their babies right from our patio. The beach is close by. We had a nice time!


Taylor, MI USA

a little paradise

This condo was absolutely wonderful! If you are looking for relaxation this is definately the place. Everyone was very nice that we met. The owner of the condo was wonderful also, she checked in every so often to see if we needed anything. On all the vacations we have been on, this is the only one we will be going back to. Also the pictures online are exactly what the place looks like. You will not be disapointed in anyway!!!!!

Dale Cox

Lovely spot

This condo was exactly like the photos and description..no surprises!It was one of the best units in the complex for location and view. We really enjoyed sitting on our patio and watching the luxury boats go by.The beach was just across the street and went on for miles. The condo was well stocked with everyting you need and more. I would highly reommend this condo and would definitely go back again. Thanks You Mary Ellen!

Céline Vachon

very nice condo

We spent two weeks in this condo on the waterway and about 200 feet from the beach. The condo is very modern, clean, and offers all the amenities required. It is also well located for visits in the area. We would return again if we go in that area again. The owner is very accomodating and informative.

D. Henlisia

Exceeded our expectations!

This property provided everything we could have wanted and more. The owner has thought of everything you might need for a beach vacation and has fully equipped this beautiful condo with all the extras including beach supplies, coolers, umbrella....we didn't need to purchase anything. Stunning location right on the intercoastal meant dining on the patio and enjoying the antics of the pelicans and herons. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and look forward to returning!
