This home is near the Dear Lake State park and Santa Rosa beach. The beach is quiet and beautiful with white sand and clear blue green water. The pool and the beach is a bit of a walk but bikes are provided as well as a wagon to pull your beach equipment. Also the walk is through the closed community so there is very little through traffic. There is a tidal stream that runs through the access to the beach which was the only issue I had with the location. Most beach goers wade through the stream but you can also walk around the edge of the stream.
There are some good restaurants nearby, shopping, and nature walks and state beaches. Overall, we had a great week and will be returning in the future!
