    Description

    The Reed House has recently been remodeled to assure our guests of all the modern day conveniences essential to providing the perfect beach vacation. There are 3 furnished bedrooms complete with ceiling fans, queen/double sized beds, adequate closet space and large windows with verticals assuring the occupants of a spectacular sunrise every morning and a breathtakingly beautiful ocean view with breezes and surround sound ocean surf 24 hours a day!

    We promise our guests that, from the 2 full bathrooms, the large modern open kitchen (with every conceivable small appliance known to man), the Florida room/den with futon, the dining room & breakfast bar (that seats 10 comfortably) to the great room with fireplace, you'll get a spectacular ocean view from every room in the house!!

    *For those of you that want to bring along extra guests or the couple that needs a little more privacy, a one bedroom/bathroom guest room is attached with a separate entrance.

    Off the east entrance is our screened enclosure containing more than enough patio furniture for lounging and /or dining in the cool ocean breezes while taking in the panoramic view of beach and ocean below you.

    Located directly off the screened room is our deck/patio and barbecue area. This is my favorite spot at the end of a day filled with over indulgence. Just rinse the sand and salt off your body in the outdoor shower, ease back into one of the comfortable chaise lounges, peer through the sea oats that dot the natural landscape and enjoy the miles and miles of white sandy beaches while the fresh ocean breezes lull you to sleep. After dinner head down our private beach access ramp, over the dunes to the beach and enjoy a leisurely walk on the cool soft white sand. Remember, it's a vacation, this is all allowed!!

    The Reed House is located in Wilbur by the Sea, 2 ½ miles north of Historical Ponce Inlet and less than 5 miles south of the popular Boardwalk in the heart of famous Daytona Beach!

    Wilbur by the Sea is a small, quiet, safe little beach town consisting mainly of home owners. Our cozy beach house is situated on a section of beach designated as a "turtle nesting area". This translates to: no motorized vehicles, no dogs or any other animals, very few tourists and a perfect spot for family and friends to spend a week of safe, peaceful and private fun in the sun! Who knows, you may even be one of the lucky few to witness a mother turtle laboring across the sand to lay her eggs or hatchlings blindly making their way back down to the water to swim out to sea!

    The beach consists of approximately 100 yards of soft, white, rock-free sand, and each new day provides a unique view of the glittering ocean. A few minutes' walk away is Boondock's restaurant, where you can dock your boat and stop in for fish and chips (or any of their other fresh seafood dishes). Within minutes' drive is Racing's North Turn restaurant, which in the early days of motorsports served as the turning point for the Daytona 500. There you can indulge in fresh seafood on the oceanfront dining patio as the live band plays. The nearby town of Ponce Inlet is home to another marina eatery called Inlet Harbor Restaurant, which also offers fresh seafood and live band entertainment. Charming Ponce Inlet is also the location of the tallest working lighthouse in Florida (second-tallest in America).

    Just ten minutes away is downtown Daytona Beach, which offers all the activities of a resort town and all the culture of a metro without the rush and bustle of the big city. Water-oriented sports abound, including swimming, SCUBA diving, surfing, water-skiing, fishing, and windsurfing, as well as land sports like golf, tennis, horseback riding, volleyball, and skating. Rentals are available for kayaks, motorboats, paddleboats, sailboats, mopeds, and bicycles. Miniature golf, go-carting, bowling, and a local water park are perfect for families.

    Walking and bus city tours, cruises, swamp tours, and helicopter rides provide ample opportunity to explore the many aspects of Daytona Beach, including the historic district full of antique shops and specialty boutiques. Museums, professional theater, gardens, local crafts, and live concerts bring culture to the area, with plenty of bars, clubs, and casino gambling available for nighttime enjoyment. Dining ranges from
    beachside sandwich shops to exquisite European bistros.

    All these activities, as well as annual events such as Spring Break, NASCAR races, and Bike Week & Biketoberfest, are close enough to enjoy on a daily basis for those who wish to do so. However, as a residential neighborhood, Wilbur by the Sea is set back from the tourist sections of the region and will provide a calming home-away-from-home atmosphere after a day of fun and excitement, free from commotion and crowds.

    In addition, Disney World, Sea World, Wet n Wild, Orlando International Airport and Cape Canaveral all within a 1 1/2 hour drive.
