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!! Steps down into the water!

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 place for quite and peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 days in this place. The place was awesome. We watched the best sunset ever from all corners of the house (the open deck or living room or the bedroom). You can walk or do Kayaking or fishing in shallow water in front of the house. Kayaks and fishing rods were there for our use. At night, we watched stars (used android SKYMAP phone app to see stars, constallations and planets' locations). House is very clean and fully furnished. Kitchen has all appliances and utencils we needed for cooking. Dryer and washer were a big help to clean cloths if you plan to stay longer. Owner kept a very thoughtful selection of books and DVDs for leisure.

I am planning to spend more vacations there.

Very relaxing and peaceful place to stay. No issues at all the owners were great to help in any way. If your looking to get away from the crowds and just relax this is the place. Also the greatest sunsets you'll see anywhere. Brian

House of the setting sun!

  • 4 of 5
This was the best spur of the moment getaway of this vacation so far coming from Alaska. Visiting family in Perry it was just the needed time together for great views, a great meal, and best of all the lightning show just offshore from the spacious deck overlooking the Gulf.

Everything we needed was there for a pleasant night, warm breezes, a homey atmosphere and picturesque setting as the laughter and family time together was just what everyone needed.

Plenty of space in kitchen and everything needed for making a great dinner was there, internet for "keeping in touch" if needed - NOT! Plenty of towels and clean bathroom with a great shower. The laundry was great since my bag was lost by the airline and it gave me a chance to wash clothes until I catch up with my other clothes.

Thanks Martie for a wonderful stay and now that we have found you we will plan this again on our next visit to the area.

Gulf Front Sunset

  • 5 of 5
Love this is so homey and we can tell that the owners love their home, with all the personal touches they put into it. Our grandsons, ages 15 and 13 had a blast. They had their frist experience with kyaks, and enjoyed it tremendously. There is every amenity you can ask for there. There are virtually no street lights that interfere with being able to see the beautiful night sky. We will definitely be asking to rent again, and were able to reccomend the property to other family members while we were there for the family reunion.

Perfectly relaxing gulf house

  • 5 of 5
This place was accurately depicted in the rental description. Martie called me immediately and was very nice. It is well kept and very clean. It had everything we needed for the week. We made a stop at wall art in Perry for our groceries the first day, then it was relax time for the rest of the week. All of the appliances are new and work fine. I will definitely being staying there again in the next year when we make another trip down to Florida. Oh yeah the homemade lift system was awesome. We didn't have to carry anything up and down stairs. The fish cleaning table is perfect too. The view of the sunrises and sunsets is more than perfect from either deck.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review! It gives a good report on the amenities of the house, especially the hoist. What a relief to not lug groceries up and down the stairs! Just one of the many perks at the Gulf Front Sunset. Martie

Breath taking Sunsets

This place has seriously spoiled me, I am leasing for a longer period and I have always wanted to feel that beach or gulf front life. It has been absolutely outstanding watching the sunset every afternoon and the smells and the breeze is awesome as well. I recommend to anyone who wants peace and quiet, a hidden get-away please contact the folks and get down here, trust me you won't regret it.
