About Mirella James

We are long term residents of Daytona Beach and own an oceanfront house nearby. If you have any questions on what to do or see we are her to help.

Mirella James purchased this house in 2007

Why Mirella James chose Wilbur-By-The-Sea

There is nothing comparable to staying in a house right on the ocean.

What makes this house unique

This house sits high on the dune and allows you to overlook the beach while still being only a few feet from the sand. Cars are not permitted to drive on this part of the beach and it is not as crowded as the beaches further north.

Loved our stay here ! Cute and clean and the owner is very friendly and always answers immediately. Definitely recommend this cottage but do keep in mind you may need to bring a toaster and a Bbq.

Thank you Mirella

Oceanfront beach house elevated on sand dune with amazing views of the Atlantic

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three loved our vacation here! We found the home to be very clean and well equipped with the essentials. The beds were comfortable for a good nights sleep after enjoying the many area activities. The two bikes were a nice extra. The large patio offered areas of sun and shade with two relaxing lounge chairs and a table with chairs. We also enjoyed Lesko Paddleboarding in Ponce Inlet. Thank you Mirella and Wade!

Great Little Place - Perfect Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place on short notice. When we walked in we found it to be smaller than the pictures suggest but throughout the week we learned to love this place. I'll definitely be renting it again. I've stayed in a lot of places on the ocean from Ormond Beach to New Smyrna Beach and this house has the best ocean view of them all. Here's why: It is very close to the water (no long boardwalk) and the sand dunes are at a perfect level so you can see the whole ocean even while seated in the house. The owner responds very quickly. Wonderful compared to two hotel rooms


Great ocean view

Newly remodeled

Everything works well, HVAC easy to run

Bright and airy

Open floor plan of kitchen and living area


Same cost (or less than) a two bedroom suite at an oceanfront hotel


Smaller than we anticipated but totally adequate

1 bathroom, somewhat small

Very plain looking exterior

We will use it again. It is worth the money.
