A gulf-front home on a quiet, residential street with a private boardwalk and sandy beach, Barefoot Blessings is a charming escape ideal for families or a small group of friends. Nestled on lush, manicured lawns with tall palm trees, the home embodies the laid-back vibe of the Forgotten Coast with modern amenities, including updated bathrooms, new furniture and stainless steel appliances.
The raised, single-level home offers expansive gulf views from wrap-around decks and a convenient cargo elevator to easily carry up groceries, luggage or beach gear.
An open-concept living area greets guests with vaulted ceilings and wall-to-wall glass doors overlooking a large screened porch and beyond to the ocean. One full-length sofa and one over sized love seat frame a large-screen TV with cable for movie nights, while a gas fireplace adds a feeling of coziness on breezy nights. Between a four-seat dining area and four high-top chairs at the breakfast bar, the home easily seats 8 guests inside for dinner -- or dine on the screened porch, where a 6-8 seat table offers an ocean view.
Easily enjoy home-cooked meals throughout your stay with a convenient gourmet kitchen, complete with a granite island and countertops, stainless steel appliances, a wine fridge, and a massive pantry. You’ll also find a unique copper pot filler for coffee. Enjoy your morning cup on the porch, where a full-length outdoor sofa and rocking chairs allow for bug-free relaxation while you listen to the waves.
Additional, open-air decks flank the Veranda with private entrances from two of the home’s bedroom suites. Evenly laid out for maximum privacy, the home has three bedrooms to comfortably accommodate up to eight guests:
Located off the living area, the master features a massive closet, large flat-screen TV with streaming capabilities, and private access to a walkout porch with a high-top table and twin chairs, ideal for coffee and conversation. This room has an en-suite bath with double vanity, bathtub, and shower.
This room, located off the Kitchen, mirrors the master with a large closet, TV with streaming capabilities, and private access to a porch overlooking the ocean. This porch offers two chaise lounges overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Guests of this room have a bathroom with combination tub/shower in the hall, next to the home’s private washer and dryer.
Twin/Full Bunk Bed with Trundle
Located near the front foyer, this bunk room has a TV with streaming capabilities and a private side porch. Guests have a full bathroom across the hall with a glass step-in shower.
Barefoot Blessings sits along a scenic stretch of the gulf with unobstructed views and easy access to the water for swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding. After a day of sandcastle-building or seashell hunting, rinse off in the outdoor shower, offering both cold and hot water. A closed-off side lawn offers a safe space for kids to play.
From your prime location on the Forgotten Coast, you’ll have easy access to local seafood and BBQ restaurants -- or you can fire up the charcoal grill for a home-cooked feast. Ask our local experts about the best spots for scalloping and fishing to serve your own catch. With ample outdoor parking, you can also explore local wildlife areas, including multiple state reserves.
*While this home has an elevator, it is intended as a bonus amenity only and may be unavailable for use during your stay.*
With gulf-front access, modern conveniences, and inviting living areas, Barefoot Blessings is an ideal homebase however you choose to explore the Forgotten Coast.
