Why Steven Simpson chose Wilbur-By-The-Sea

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

Steps From the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for, a nice quiet place right on a quiet beach. We were there on a Sunday through a Wednesday and there were times when the closest person on the beach was a couple hundred yards away.

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.

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.
