Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Perry - The Gulf Front Sunset

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Please check availability calendar! It is up to date.

Our 2 bedroom 1 bath house sits on high stilts directly overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Located in undiscovered Dekle Beach, Florida. It is a retreat from everything. We are about three miles up the coast from Keaton Beach. The home overhangs the Gulf, with the high tides lapping against the sea wall. The porch/deck looking out on the Gulf. Sunbathing is great right on the 3rd story wrap around deck. There is an open mezzanine floor between the house and the ground level and covered parking at ground level. Great for grilling in a rain, baby cribs and lots of people room. Relax and read on the couch on the mezzanine. You will enjoy breathtaking gulf views and fabulous sunsets. FISH CLEANING TABLE WITH RUNNING WATER!! There is now 3 full bays open for cars and boats. No street parking. Steps down into the water! After 2016, I will no longer rent the house for more than 1 month. I am sorry.

About Martie McLean

I'm 67 years old and I live in Ocala, Florida. My husband and I purchased the house is 2001. I have rented the house for several years and have had fantastic reviews through other vacation websites. i also have two places on the Atlantic coast and are also available for rent through this website. I take great pride in my beautiful places and am very responsive to any of our guests' needs. I do not live locally but can be there in 2 1/2 hours. I have a team of folks that help me with any issues you may encounter. I am available by phone but especially by email.

Why Martie McLean chose Florida

It is so peaceful! The area is still pristine and undisturbed. I love to study the stars and at night, on a clear night, the Milky Way is breathtaking. The weather is always a pleasure, whether it is a sunbathing day, or a stormy night. I also love bird watching. I like to sit with binoculars and identify them. At night, we grill out on the nice double hibachi grills and enjoy talking and being with family.

What makes this house unique

Underdeveloped Florida is almost a thing of the past. Dekle is a nice community of 40 houses. Scalloping season is the high season and often the scall0ps are right out in front of the house. 2 kayaks are there for your use. Fishing is great as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Martie, we certainly had a great time at your place. Everything was clean & all the appliances were top of the line. Both beds slept great. The binoculars were a real plus. I got to follow the skimmers as the glazed over the water. Before I had only seen them in the air or on the beach. It was really special to have crabs & horseshoe crabs right at our landing. It is mating season & all the horseshoe crabs were in pairs. We enjoyed Keaton Beach. Talked to such nice family people out having a day of fishing. Had a super chili dog at the beach. We checked out Dallas Landing & think we would like to fish or take our kayaks there. In all we feel if someone wants to see the old Florida, this is the place. The sunsets & the moon were beautiful! I am really glad I brought my bike. To ride along the coast & ride toward the coast, as I went down the dead end street was what I have always wanted to do. Even with the rain I got in 17 miles while there. Gary saw one large ray over by the bridge. Of course the hoist went great and was a life saver for me and saved many trips up & down the steps. I really lucked out. I had packed all the groceries in canvas bags with straps. We love this place!

Great sunsets, great starry nights, owner aims to please.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously at this property. I'm a photographer and was looking for dark skies to photograph the Milky Way. The sunset was spectacular and as the sky darkened the Milky Way was easy to make out on the southern horizon. The night sky here is very good due to the lack of light pollution.

The property had just survived a storm, and originally the reservation was cancelled. However I pleaded with the owner if something should change to let me know. I told her that the new moon only came once a month and I wanted badly to shoot pictures that week.

The owner Martie went above and beyond to accommodate me and she did just that!

Bottomline, great area, great owner!

Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! I have always encouraged photographers to enjoy the sky, stars and birds at Dekle Beach. It truly is wonderful. My guest was able to work with me as the area was recovering from Hurricane Hermine. In fact, the staircase was pulled away from the house. R. was there during the repair and used a temporary staircase to get in and out of the house. He presented me with 3 beautiful prints of the Milky Way from the deck of the house. They will be on display in the Gulf Front Sunset. I hope he will return and see all of the improvements. Thank you so much. Martie

Beautiful views, scallopps nearly at your doorsteps...

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. The place was clean and well equipped. Fishing and scalloping was great, no long boat ride. Parking is very tight if you have a boat/trailer. Private ramp was great during scalloping season (no waiting/finding a space). The decks were amazingly comfortable even in the 95+ degree heat of August (wonderful breeze in the evening). Of course, the sunsets make it worth while. The owner was a joy to work with. We will definitely be back.
