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 Miramar Beach

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 Family Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

We visited Barefoot Escapes for spring break with 2 adults and 2 kids, ages 8 and 10. The house was clean and generally had everything you needed, which was nice. The location was great for us. The property manager was very responsive when we contacted him, which was not often. The pool was nice and we paid for heat which worked very well especially on cooler days. The beach was close and was an easy walk even with all of the beach gear. We also rented a golf cart which was a lot of fun, I would highly recommended this especially if you have kids. We would stay here again when traveling to this area.

Very nice home and perfect location to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The property and all details were just as listed on HomeAway. The pool was great, the home was in an awesome location and just minutes from the beach. The surrounding area is very nice and anything you would need or want is within close proximity to the home. Our vacation was wonderful and cannot wait to return!

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.
