House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, 3 decks, breathtaking oceanfront views
This is a lovely 3BR/2BA home which is directly ON THE BEACH. The house features 3 decks that face the ocean. The main oceanfront deck off the living room area has a magnificent 180 degree ocean view. The 2rd oceanfront deck off the master bedroom has a stunning ocean view and a lovely sunset view. The 3rd oceanfront deck at ground level has a straight ahead ocean view. There are 15 steps leading up to the house which is built on stilts overlooking the ocean. Walk down the private steps of the house onto the white sugar sand beach.
The area is peaceful and quiet since no vehicles are allowed on this section of the beach. There are no large condominium buildings in the area. This makes for beautiful unobstructed ocean views and great long walks on the beach. This peaceful setting guarantees undisturbed relaxation since the beach is never crowded.
The house is less than 10 minutes away from downtown Daytona, so you'll be able to enjoy a wonderful, quiet vacation spot that is still centrally located and close to Daytona Beach attractions. It is 20 minutes to the Daytona 500 race track. It is also convenient to Disney World & Orlando attractions.
Our home sleeps 6 in beds.
Relax in the living room while enjoying panoramic ocean views.
When you come, don't miss the Marine Science Center down the street. It's a fun place for kids of all ages. It includes an aquatic touch pool where the sea creatures are fed twice a day. You may register to participate in feeding the sea animals. There is also a sea turtle recovery and rehabilitation area as well as a raptor area.
If you don't mind heights, check out the lighthouse at Lighthouse Point Park for a bird's eye view of the surrounding area. The park is adjacent to the Marine Science Center. Both of these attractions are about 5 minutes away from the house.
There are several beautiful golf courses nearby.
Eat out or buy local seafood at King's Seafood or Port Orange Seafood and cook it at the house. The smoked fish at POS is excellent.

This property was passed down from my grandmother to my mother and our whole family vacationed in this beautiful area growing up. The house was built on stilts in order to take advantage of the elevated ocean view.
What makes this House unique
We love the 3 decks with panoramic ocean views and the tranquil beach that our home is located on in South Daytona Beach.

Beautiful beach home with gorgeous views.
A perfect vacation. Owner provided us with detailed instructions for checking in and out. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but right on the beach. We had 2 couples and one teen and it was roomy and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen was a Huge plus. Great location meant there was always something to do nearby, walking distance to several fun spots. Short drive to gas and groceries. I wish I could have stayed longer because everything was so wonderful. Owners are a delight. I hope I can come back again someday. (We have rented through VRBO multiple times over the past 10 years and this was by far the best experience.)
We had an amazing get away at this gem of a beach cottage! The view was simply amazing. The updates comfortable and stylish. It was big enough for the 6 family members to be together but not on top of each other. It was very well maintained and very clean. The turtle was an added bonus to watch but the main feature was the quiet beach and ocean. The view is very well highlighted with this house. The owners are kind and helpful, answering questions promptly. Something for everyone to do only a short distance from the house but we found it very difficult to drag ourselves away from the beach! Would love to go back!
All Around Top Notch Beach House
The location was perfect. We had initial qualms about peace and quiet because of "Race Weekend" but we were very pleased that the cottage was off of the beaten path and that there was no noisy rowdiness. The ambient noise of the traffic on A1A was not an issue either - we've stayed in other places on A1A and were pleased that is was no different. The traffic at night was sparse and with the windows open, the waves pretty much covered everything up anyway. We really liked that there was no commercial development nor high rise condos along this immediate stretch of Wilbur-by-the-Sea - but it was so convenient to have everything just a short distance away - in either direction: toward Daytona Beach for shopping and dining and Ponce Inlet for leisure and sightseeing. The beach was quiet and uncrowded and offered near endless walking and/or biking - a bike trip down the beach to Ponce Inlet was one of the highlights of our stay. We also liked the tasteful way the cottage was refurbished. It was obvious that things were done "the right way" and not cobbled together "on the cheap." We also liked the availability of sun/shade: for morning sun, the two decks were great while under the deck offered morning shade without sacrificing the view. The main deck offered afternoon shade while the side deck offered sun late into the afternoon. The main deck was very nice and the "wire railings" were great for not obscuring the view. And if inclement weather (we had none!) forces you inside, you won't sacrifice the view - thanks to the two sliders, the view from the living room is almost as expansive as outside. The patio furniture on the decks and below were handy and comfortable as were the available beach amenities (umbrellas, chairs, etc.). The house was meticulously clean - an attribute we really appreciate. And the consistently (very) timely communication with the owners and their indulgence in answering our questions was helpful and much appreciated. And the hints and detailed information about the area provided in their communications were also helpful and appreciated. The proximity to DAB airport is also a nice plus. And when you consider that there's plenty of room not only for mom, dad and the kids but also grandma and grandpa, it's quite a bargain.
Relaxing stay on a beautiful beach!
Our family had a wonderful time at this house for a get- away the week before Christmas! The house has everything you could need for a very relaxing stay! We especially loved the deck which has been updated to wire railings so you can sit or recline in one of the lounge chairs, take in the sun, and enjoy the view of the ocean for miles!! Every morning we had our coffee on the deck as the sun made it's first peek over the ocean! The day was not complete until we made our way down the house's private walkway and stepped on to the beach! And we couldn't forget to say hello to "Mr. Gopher Turtle" who lives right next to the house's walkway! You will enjoy this fascinating turtle who makes an appearance about once a day as he eats some leaves and sits in the sun!
Anything you would want to do at the beach is close to this house! Crabby Joe's deck and grill is an easy walk up the beach line and you can enjoy getting your toes wet as you splash your way there! Or take a 5 to 10 minute drive down the lovely scenic Peninsula Drive to the Ponce inlet lighthouse and park! The lighthouse is marvelous and a good hike up the stairs but well worth the climb because the view is spectacular from the top! After leaving the lighthouse take a stroll over to the Lost Treasure Grill for a relaxing lunch on the Intel waterway as you watch the Pelicans perched on their posts in the water, people parasailing, and boats coming in to dock! You might even decide to go parasailing yourself! Or take the 10 minute drive to Daytona Beach and have an ice cream cone as you walk the board walk that has something for everyone!
Thank you Jennifer and Debbie for making our stay so enjoyable and for recommending so much! It was a trip to remember!
Everything a beach house should be
We enjoyed a wonderful "pre-Christmas" weekend at the beach house with friends, and everything (even the weather) was perfect....the location is tops, easy access to everything Daytona Beach has to offer, short walking distance to Boondocks restaurant (for their famous fish reuben), and the house itself is just great, with a private walkover to the uncrowded beach, outside shower for sandy feet, new kitchen, VERY comfy beds, a power recliner for the big guy, and an unbeatable view from the deck... Hope to return again in summertime!
Loved this place
The view and beach access are amazing. The house is well stocked with most everything you might need. No complaints at all. This place was great.
Located less than 10 minutes from downtown Daytona Beach. 1 hour and 15 minutes from Disney World/Universal Studios, 1 hour from downtown Orlando, and 30 minutes from beautiful DeLand, FL. Cars are not allowed on the beach so the beach is never crowded Convenient to several fresh water state parks with crystal clear spring water
