This summer my wife and I took a 2 week road trip of the south, during this trip we decided to spend 5 days in Indian shores. That's when we decided to stay at a condo. From the very beginning, Maryellen was there, responding to emails, calls to answer our question. When we finally arrived, we entered to the smell of fresh baked cookies(nice surprise), the condo is absolutely spotless, plenty of room and comfortable. it is decorated in a beach atmosphere. The grounds are clean pool is steps away and beach across the street. The condo is centrally located to restaurants and activities. But that's not the best part, the best part is the EXTREMELY EXCELLENT customer service that is provided by MaryElllen. She is always available, and your specific stay is her only goal. We will definitely being enjoying this property again!!

I love staying in this condo. I have tried other condos when this one is booked up but I have always been disappointed. I will always stay in Mary Ellen's beautiful place.

Owner's reply: thanks Sarah, I look forward to your return and I hope your family stay was relaxing getting to spend quality time together!

“A Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 2 May 2016

This was our first time renting a condo. We were so fortunate to have found Mary Ellen's property. She was terrific to work with . We stayed for 8 days and enjoyed every minute of it. Great location, terrific view of the inter coastal waterway .Imagine, being welcomed with cookies and a such a darling spotless place! It was a perfect fit for us. We enjoyed the pool and being across the street from the gulf. We spent a lot of time on her patio watching the boats and the birds.Mornings were especially nice and peaceful. Close to everything and she has a basket filled with info and even a journal to share tips and recommendations with others... Great idea! We would definitely come back again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Owner's reply: Thanks Molly, I enjoyed our conversations and look forward to your next visit.

“Superb Vacation”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2015

Had the greatest time at Barefoot Beach Resort. Weather was terrific and the accommodations were outstanding. MaryEllen, the owner, could not have been any more gracious. We stayed here last year at the same time and enjoyed ourselves so much. Everything in the condo is immaculate and MaryEllen provides you with all amenities. Needless to say, we'll be going back next year. Thank you again

Owner's reply: Chris and Gene, I look forward to you coming next year , I really enjoy our adult beverages catching up on the patio. Always a pleasure!

My sister and I took our very first "alone" (no kids, no hubbies) vacation and stayed for 8 days here and it is my best vacation to date (and I'm old)! Mary Ellen's place is absolutely perfect! The cleanliness, the fresh baked cookies, the music left on for us, the safety factor (with 2 women traveling alone) and Mary Ellen, herself, was perfect. I haven't even started on the view of the intercostal, or the pool, or the close and ease of getting to great local restaurants, or the fact, that Mary Ellen went out of her way for us several times....a couple when we locked ourselves out of the condo. She did not hesitate to come to our rescue right away and it was night and day when we locked ourselves out. Sorry, Mary Ellen :) We will be back and will be referring people to you. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!! Thanks again for everything - Kim & Jen

Owner's reply: Thank you for the wonderful review! I aim to please and make all my guests feel welcome. It was a pleasure meeting both you and Jen. I hope to see you again, maybe next time I will have a new lock system!!! lol

WOW! Our vacation was better than I could have imagined! We were a bit on the cautious side, we had never rented a vacation property before. Mary Ellen has a beautiful condo with an unbelievable view! The harbor was right out the back door, we saw all kinds of birds, lizards, dolphins, and even sting rays on a daily basis! We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back again next year... or sooner! Mary Ellen is so sweet and easy going! She had everything we needed to enjoy time at the beach. The wind was blowing pretty good and broke the beach umbrella the first day we used it, she brought us a new one the next day as well as a very thoughtful birthday basket for our daughter. If you have the opportunity to experience staying here, DO IT!!!! Everything exceeded our expectations! Thank you again for your hospitality Mary Ellen!

Owner's reply: I hope to see your lovely family again, maybe next time you can stay longer!

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.

Owner's reply: 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!

“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!

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

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!
