I rented the farmhouse for myself, two married children, their spouses and five grandchildren. Though it wasn't on the beach, the state park and local beaches were close by and it was a short ride to st. Joe with it's children's museum and carousel. While the house was great, it was the pool with it's slide that made it well worth being somewhat off the beaten path. The owner, Sandy couldn't have been more accommodating. I would highly recommend it.
