"Had a wonderful time. House was very comfortable, roomy, up to date w/decor and kitchen was big and nicely stocked! Would definitely rent solitude again! " - Lisa, Richmond, VA
Ranch-style beach house finds solitude at the end of a tree-lined cul-de-sac just off a side road with direct access onto the beach. Enjoy the quiet corner of this oceanfront community with convenient access to the end of the beach coveted for its wide, un-crowded and relaxed character. Open-concept common area opens onto screened porch and sundeck with private woodland setting. Master suite provides secluded sundeck and elegant tiled bathroom with garden tub. Expect to find ample parking, carport, enclosed outdoor shower, as well as a good sized beach wagon.

If you are looking for a nice secluded, quiet, end of the street house, this is the one. Even if you have a lot of kids there are plenty of bedrooms and baths set off from the living area. The screened-in porch is small and needs a little more furniture but is surrounded by trees and very peaceful. It is a couple of blocks walk to the beach but if you are budget minded it is worth it. We will definitely return. Litchfield Realty was super to work with.
Solitude is located at the south end of a family-friendly neighborhood with no through traffic on any crossing roads - making that stroll to the beach safe, easy and pleasant! We are glad your family enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return to the beach!

“Would not do it again”

The pictures are not what you get. The furniture had mostly been changed and things we expected (like an outside table), were no longer there.
There were ants and drains that weren't working properly and just a general sense that the house needed a deep clean. Bring your own linens, the towels provided were like sandpaper and the mats were unusable. And the beds are awful - felt like sleeping on the floor.
The proximity to the beach was nice and the street was very quiet.
The photos on the webpage are the furniture that is currently in the home. The owner did change some furniture and that may have happened in the time between when you booked and when you arrived. However, the furniture they replaced it with is very similar. We stress to guests - please contact us if you have any needs. We didn't hear from you about the ants (we would have been happy to send out an exterminator) or the drains (we would have gladly sent out a plumber). The linens are rental linens - however, we have "shopped around" to make sure the quality is good. We're sorry you didn't care for Solitude - many other guests have loved it and return year after year.

My family met here from NY and Florida for a family vacation. The house was terrific!! It had everything. All you needed to bring was yourself! The open floor plan (kitchen, dining room and living room) was fantastic!! It was 3 blocks from the ocean, my only negative for this property. My family is coming back next year. We will stay in Solitude again if we can not find a property closer to the ocean.
Hi! Thank you for your review of Solitude! We're so glad you and your family enjoyed it, and that you will be staying with Litchfield Real Estate again next year!

We rented Solitude to babysit our one year old grand daughter while our son and wife had a reunion with college buddies. The house was very clean and perfect for keeping up with an active toddler. We would definite rent again and recommend it.
We're glad you enjoyed Solitude and thank you for taking the time to review it! We hope to see you and your family again very soon!
“Nice, spacious, clean house on one floor - perfect!!”

Realty staff were nice and accomodating. The house was beautiful and big enough for 6 adults,1 baby,and 2 small dogs and there were still 2 extra bedrooms. I loved everything about the house. The furnishings were wonderful and perfect for a beach house. The kitchen was well stocked. I loved that the living room, dining room, and kitchen was open, so that everyone could be together, but still have space.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Solitude! It really is a special, unique beach house! We hope to see you and your family again very soon!

This delightful house on a private road provides the perfect escape for families looking for a relaxing vacation. We loved the funky and whimsical decor of what appeared to be a newly renovated home. And so convenient to the beautiful and uncrowded beach. The kids enjoyed riding bikes on the paths around town. We will definitely be back!
Solitude has been such a favorite of guests staying there this season! We are glad your family enjoyed it, and we look forward to seeing you again very soon! Thanks!

When we arrived I was taken back. This place was amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. From the location of the house to the beach from the ammenities included. The beach was never crowded. Most of the time there was maybe fifteen people around at a time. Beach was amazingly clean. The walk was actually less than five minutes. For the price of the rental you get more than your moneys worth and then some. Overall the rental company was fast, courteous and very tuned to your needs. Would in a heart beat recommend to family, friends and co-workers.
We are so glad you have a great vacation! Solitude is a wonderful addition to our rental program, and our beaches are absolutely the BEST! Thanks for your recommendation and we hope to see you and your family again very soon!

“Quiet, secluded and just what was needed!!”

this is a great place! they have everything-from a jetted bathtub, to Wifi internet...ceiling fans, a/c that works great-plenty of space, a nice screened porch. The best part is that the beach is really just a short walk away!! We carried a cooler with bottled water, 2 chairs and a beach bag with our pool towels and it was not a problem doing the walk at all. This part of the beach was very clean and never crowded, so you prety much can go out anytime of the day and find a great spot to claim as yours. Wonderful time!!
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay in Solitude! It is a wonderful house, new to our rental program this year, and a terrific new addition! We hope to see you and your family again very soon!
“Room for everyone, fantastically equipped from kitchen to books”

I have stayed in some nice beach homes, but this was the best so far. The kitchen was stocked to the gills (but plenty of room in the pantry for our groceries). The furniture was just right-- not overly crowded like some homes. We are big readers, so we enjoyed the large number of quality books for kids, young adults, adults. Short walk to the beach, even with two kids. My only complaint was that ther was only 1 DVD player, but we were too busy reading, playing games, cooking, and hanging at the beach to spend much time with the tv.
Thank you for sharing about your stay in Solitude! It is new to our rental program in 2011 and has been a great addition! We will pass along to the owners your suggestion about the DVD player. Hope to see you again very soon!
