We spent the week prior to visiting Barefoot's driving around Puerto Rico, and staying in hotels in San Juan and Mayaguez. When we arrived at Barefoot's, it was exactly what we needed - a calm, chill, relaxing place to hang out and use as a base camp for activities in the area. Keishya and Bob are fantastic hosts, and have pretty much everything available that you could possibly need, from kitchen supplies to pool/beach equipment. The neighborhood the house is located in is gated and quiet, and we spent a lot of time just walking around, taking pictures of the beachy Puerto Rican architecture. Beach access is about a 2 minute walk away, and the Humacao Nature Reserve is adjacent to the neighborhood - a 5 minute walk away. We spent a lot of time at the beach and at the reserve, but also just spent some time hanging out by the pool or in the hammock. We cooked a few meals in the kitchen, which was a great kitchen to work in - large, room enough for several people to be doing prep, and lots of counter space.
There are several restaurants within walking distance, including La Casa Del Mofongo, which we ate at and loved. Groceries are about a 5-10 minute drive away (you can go to WalMart, but we liked the Econo better). The dock/beach area of Punta Santiago is about a 5 minute drive away, and a fun place to hang out. I would highly, highly recommend Barefoots, especially if you'll be doing any activities out of Fajardo, as the drive to there is not bad at all.
Anyway, I have nothing bad to say about this place, and lots of lots of good things! I'd really recommend staying here like we did - at the end of our trip to Puerto Rico, after we've dealt with the traffic and craziness that the other parts of the island can throw at you. It was so nice to be able to simply relax and enjoy the warmth and the ocean without any stress whatsoever.
