Date of Stay:

The location and accommodations provided at Barefoot Bliss exceeded our expectations! A beautiful beach was just steps away, and the property was modern, clean, and inviting both inside and out. Carol, Pete, and of course Finn, were wonderful hosts and we look forward to our visit again next year!


Date of Stay:

This place is so beautiful. Carol is a great host we really felt taken care of. The apartment was newly renovated and it amenities suited our family. We tend to cook, the kitchen was comfortable and had what you needed to prepare a complete meal. We used the grill, paddle boards, and beach accessories. Our family had a great time and we will return!

Barefoot Bliss

Date of Stay:

Our stay at Barefoot Bliss was excellent. The property has been very well supplied with so many conveniences. Snacks, beverages, full coffee service, and linens abound. Their are plenty of beach items such as chairs, umbrellas, and carts. Bicycles, kayaks, and surfboards are readily available. The beach is very close and beautiful. The owners clearly care about your comfort and the quality of your visit. We have never stayed in a rental with so many conveniences supplied. We hope to visit again.

Great Location

Date of Stay:

This was a last minute trip for my children and I before school. The unit had everything we could possibly imagine and then some. We greatly appreciated the gift basket! Easy bike into town, enjoyed the free yoga on the beach followed by a smoothie from the smoothie VW Bus! If you are here to find shark teeth you’ll find more than you expected!

Oasis on the Gulf of Mexico

Date of Stay:

Barefoot Bliss at Beachcomber of Manasota Key is a fantastic vacation destination. We stayed September and it was so relaxing! Everything we needed to relax and enjoy some much needed beach time was provided! It is an oasis that is a must see on the Gulf Coast! The beachside accommodations were newly updated and perfectly clean and neat! Literally steps from beach! We can't wait to go back!!

By foot, bicycle, or car Englewood Beach is just minutes away from Beachcomber’s Retreat. Englewood Beach has a boardwalk, covered picnic areas, and restrooms. Restaurants, bars, shopping, and waterfront dining locations are across the street from Englewood Beach. North of Englewood Beach is Blind Pass Beach. This is another great spot to search for shark teeth or to take a walk on the nature trail through sand dunes and mangroves. Farther north, Manasota Beach offers another spot to explore and is a popular snorkeling area. You are also within walking distance, half a mile, of Stump Pass Beach State Park another Manasota Key treasure. Stump Pass Beach covers the southern end of the key. Countless hours can be spent exploring the mile-long beach or hiking the trails. Visitors have an opportunity to encounter dolphins, manatees, loggerhead turtles, and egrets as you stroll the sandy beach.

You are also within walking distance of Lemon Bay which is the perfect spot to set off in a kayak to get a closer view of the inter-coastal wildlife along the mangrove fringed shoreline. Catch a glimpse of dolphins and manatees as you fish.

Manasota Key has some of the best fishing, boating, sailing, and kayaking available. You are also only minutes from golfing, shopping, grocery stores, and hospitals.
