Why Steven Simpson chose Florida

Our paternal grandparents, Nana and Ba-Pop, from Mt. Dora, Fl. purchased the white, pink trimmed house just North of 4043 in the early 50's as a summer home. In the mid-seventies our parents purchased the property adjacent to our grandparents' home which included the larger residence to the Southt and 4043 which was used as a cottage house. Five generations of family including 7 grand-children, 15 great-grandchildren,and 3 great-great grandchildren occupied the 3 homes on approximately 300 feet of beachfront property in Wilber-by-the-Sea since its beginning. It has been a place of sand and salt; a treasure chest full of long sunny days, waves, laughter, love, family, friends, and memories. It is truly the most beautiful ocean, and it will capture your heart and hold it tight forever. Discover its enduring secrets and enjoy your time, as days go quickly on its shores. May God bless your stay. Steve and Teresa

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came in for my mother's 70th Birthday. The house was perfect for a quiet weekend on the beach. It had nothing but charm and a little nostalgia for us. We were surprised that we really did not need to bring anything because things were well stocked there. You are only about a mile and a half from Dunlawton Road which made it really easy to find restaurants or shopping, and you can enter the beach right at that intersection if you want to drive on the sand. Our hosts were very accommodating and very nice.

"Cozy Cottage" at Wilbur by the sea

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the "cozy cottage " a few weeks after hurricane Matthew decided to visit. So glad to report everything was perfect. The cottage is awesome and directly on the beach, Beds were so comfortable and kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The view from the cottage was so spectacular along with the never ending breeze. A special thank you to Steve and Terry for renting your family cottage to me and my dog. I will definitely be back.

Beautiful get-away from winter

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple from New Jersey, who love to escape the winter cold and spend a month in Florida. We have never stayed in any house ocean front before and this was a wonderful experience. To sit on the deck with our morning coffee, reading the paper and to look and listen to the ocean was a highlight of the day. Even to sit inside at the dinner table you could look at the ocean out the big window. There are also big windows from the living room and main bedroom where the ocean view is fantastic. the beach is just steps away, where we took wonderful walks. Everything you need is in the house and we felt at home cooking many of our meals there. The owners Steve and Terry and the manager Janis could not have been more friendly, prompt in responding and accommodating, a pleasure to deal with. This was their family house growing up and several of the family antique furniture is at the house.

The only draw back coming in March, was during bike week for ten days, hearing the loud noise from the bikes driving up and down A1A. The ponce inlet and the lighthouse is only a few miles down A1A and Daytona a few miles north. Port Orange over the bridge on the mainland has all the shops you need. There are also many veterinary clinics in the area if you need to visit one, which we did with our little dog. As far as restaurants in the area, we liked Aunt Catfish on the River the best. We visited our friends in New Smyrna Beach often and that is a wonderful beach town on a smaller scale than Daytona and Port Orange. Every second Saturday of the month there is a classic car show on Canal Street with "oldies" music playing. Many good restaurants there too, only a 25 min ride from the house. Health questions decide whether we can come back again, but it was a wonderful stay for this year. Thank you again Steve, Terry and Janis.

Wilbur-by-the-Sea is a quiet beachside neighborhood situated on the peninsula which spans between the Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River/Intercoastal Waterway. A few miles to the south down A1A is the famous Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and the North Turn Restaurant and Bar, named for the first site of the original site of the stock car race track on world famous Daytona Beach. All driving on the beach in Wilbur-by-the-Sea has been prohibited which makes for wide stretches of warm, sugar-sand beaches. While this rental is tranquil and private, minutes drive to the north are great restaurants, live music dance clubs, interesting shops and a host of delightful beachside attractions for ages young and old.
