Best family vacation ever!

We just returned from enjoying this house last week and I couldn't wait to write a review. We are a multi-generational family of 4 kids and 10 adults. We rented both the house and the above garage apartment.
The house was fantastic. All of the bedrooms were beautiful. The master bath housed the most amazing shower, it was big enough to accomodate a full-sized giraffe! (we didn't bring one) The house was plenty big enough for 10 and everyone had a bed. One of the nicest things was that the kitchen had enough dishes and silverware for everyone. Counting the apartment, we had 5 refridgerators. Everything from the bedding to the electronics was top of the line.
The garage apartment was the 'no kid zone' where my single siblings could sleep late. It included two bedrooms, a small kitchen and living area. It also had a small washer and dryer.
The pool was small but deep. Everyone, especially the kids, enjoyed it. The golf cart was a nice addition, although it had a few technical problems while we were there.
If you book this house (and you should, the price is a steal), here are a couple of suggestions. Bring extra towels. The house provides enough for bathing but you also need towels for beaching and swimming. Buy paper plates. Bring lots of water, the local water tasted strange to me. We brought our own fishing gear but didn't use it.
Area attractions: The house is perfectly located on a small stretch of beautiful beach between Destin and Fort Walton Beach. Here are some things we enjoyed: The Donut Hole, Bayou Bill's Seafood, Fuddpuckers (great for a big family), Sea Dragon pirate cruise, parasailing. Didn't like: Boogies glass bottom boat ride because we really didn't see anything.
Hope your family has an experience just like ours. My son said this was his best vacation ever!

ACTUALLY, THE HOUSE IS LOCATED EAST OF DESTIN, OFF OF US-98, in SOUTH WALTON COUNTY. We're to the west of BLUE MOUNTAIN, GRAYTON BEACH, SEASIDE.
