About the property

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 68 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.

Martie McLean purchased this house in 2001

Why Martie McLean chose Perry

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 43 houses. Scalloping season is the high season and often the scallops 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!

Wonderful place to stay and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for A couple nights while we were in the area scalloping. The house was clean and furnished with most everything you need. The location is perfect and is very close to Keaton Beach boat ramp for fishing and scalloping. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking in this are. Owner was also very responsive when I had questions or concerns.

Martie's place was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this trip was unlike anything we've experienced and I mean that in the most positive way possible! The variety of wildlife in this area is amazing! Just in our short two day stay, we saw TONS of crabs, even two blue crabs during low tide, horseshoe crabs, starfish, and so much more! I definitely can't wait until I can plan another trip back!
