The cottage could use some maintenance such as the upstairs bedroom ceiling with water stains. Also, the AC exchange in the hall downstairs has dust and dirt hanging out. It needs a new filter and cleaning. The screens on the porch were damaged, but we were told of that when we checked in. However, the screen on the door was in the same damaged condition it was last year when we stayed. Overall, for an older cottage, it is in pretty good condition. We enjoy staying in the cottage because of the location.

Great location, tons of deck space

  • 4 of 5

This house is showing its age, but it has fantastic views of the water from two levels of covered porches. You can even glimpse the sound side from the upstairs bedroom! Nice space for 6-8 people without feeling crowded.

Great Beach home

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great stay. There were some things that needed some attention, like the ceiling fan in one of the 1st floor bedrooms was stuck on high and the chain to change it was broken off. The dryer did not shut off on it's own and got very very hot after some time. For the most part, we had a great week and the house served it's purpose. The decking was recently replaced so splinters were not an issue. I love not walking through the hot sand and past dunes. This was our first time at this beach and I love that the steps literally drop you onto the beach. There is a public access along the side of the house, but the beach was still not overly populated.

Doyles Solitude is a very nice beach front property in Surf City.

  • 5 of 5

The interior is nice and clean, well furnished, and spacious enough. There are 3 nice decks, one screened in, to enjoy the ocean view. The walkway out to the beach has a few loose rails, but Im sure that will be repaired soon. Overall a great place to enjoy a peacefull family vacation,. We will be back soon!
