Barfoot Bay is a nice area for Seniors.2004,2005 the Hurricanes tore it up pretty bad,some flooding on roadways. they have repaired most of the area.You are close to everything.A lot of people trying to sell and move to Tennessee,so you should be able to find a nice place cheap.Good luck.

As a Florida resident I would advise not moving into a trailer/doublewide community. For the same money you could find a house or condo to live in and not have to worry as much about hurricanes, bad thunderstorms and tornadoes.

Barefoot Bay is just an OK community. Some of it is actually old doublewides since it has been here since the 70s. It is an area of retirees and families who chose the area because it used to be less expensive to live in a doublewide on your own property than buy a house.

It got hit by the hurricanes in 79, 95, and the 2004 hurricanes.Each hurricane threat means packing up and going somewhere else for safety which can get expensive. Many homes have also sustained damage over the years from tornadoes which tend to hit there more than other areas in the county.

Some people love it there and others hate it. Many are snowbirds,so only part time neighbors. You have to drive to Palm Bay or Vero Beach for almost everything and to get to the beach you have to drive North or south to get to a causeway to cross the intercoastal.
