About the Owner

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.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The home was very clean and everything we needed was provided. The pool was perfect for our little family and private. The beach isn't far from the home and there is parking if you want to drive. The beach wasn't crowded at all and we loved watching the sunrise. The home is close to shopping and restaurants and the owner/property manager was very easy to communicate with when we had questions. I would definitely recommend this property!

This was our first visit to the ever so gorgeous Destin! We fell in love with this home as soon as we stepped foot inside! Gated community, private pool, a walk away from the beach! It felt like home! Definitely hoping to stay again next year!

Also, Bob (property manager) was more than helpful! Can't say enough great things about this place!

Nice and clean with plenty of room for all. Love we had a pool!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the wonderful time at your home. We had 7 people all together and it was a very roomy place. The pool was great and the short walk to the beach was nice. We could not believe how quite and friendly the neighborhood was. We will definitely be back! Thanks again!

Amazing rental beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Had such an amazing time at The Barefoot Escape, Destin Beach House Rental in May! We will definitely be staying there again. Beautiful white sand beaches, fantastic backyard with pool to relax in and close to great restaurants and entertainment! Very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our beach vacation. Be sure to ask about golf cart rental to get around town!

The property was more than what we could have wished for to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The pool and house was very spacious and clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our trip. We also got the golf cart which added some fun Adventures. The beach was beautiful and just steps away!!! Thank you so much for an amazing stay at a georgous property, we can't wait to book another trip to go back!!

Fantastic getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

Jen & Cliff's home was so convenient to shops and restaurants. You can be at the beach in a jiffy by walking, but the convenience of the golf carts made the week a lot of fun! We had eight in our family and everyone was very comfortable. The backyard pool was enjoyed daily and made our vacation a real treat. The guys grilled out one night for us and The Crab Trap was so delicious, we even went back for a second time during our stay!

The home was furnished beautifully and suited our needs for one fantastic time!

Many thanks to Bob Foy for taking care of our needs! I can recommend this property whole heartedly! If someone doesn't enjoy their stay here, it has to be their own fault!

From the Owner

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?
