No linens, Broken AC, Poor Customer Service
Our poor experience with this property started a few days before we left home when I received an email informing me there would be no linens anywhere in the condo--no sheets on the four beds, no towels or washcloths in the bathroom, no dish clothes or towels in the kitchen--and we would need to bring our own or leave $ for the cleaning lady and use some that would be in a closet there. You can imagine my frustration, but whatever, we're going to the beach, right? We'll pay the $ and avoid packing an entire condo's worth of linens and bringing them all back with us. Why the owner wouldn't just supply linens and add $ to the cleaning fee is beyond me, but hey, that's her call. This would have been overlooked by me except when we got there the linens were locked in a trunk and I had to go track down a key from the point person on the property. So, I go fetch the key, make 4 beds, put some towels in the bathroom and finally we can relax and enjoy our short 3 nights at the beach. Except, the air conditioning in one of the bedrooms doesn't work. It wasn't obvious as the fan still worked and the first day there wasn't scorching, so we tolerated it the first night. The second night was not tolerable and it was so hot that I finally slept on the couch in the living room. I wrote the owner in the morning and she said she'd send a repair man. We went to the beach all day, came back several hours after the man was supposed to have fixed the AC, and alas, still no AC. No call from the owner either. I text her and she informs me they couldn't fix it on site and would have to come back the next day and bring it to the shop. If you're keeping count at home, we'll be leaving the next day, so no bedroom AC the entire trip for my wife and I. I ask if we'll be compensated for this inconvenience (something I feel should have been offered by her, not requested by me) and was met with a very defensive text in return accusing me of not alerting her to the AC soon enough for her to have it fixed during our stay. At this point I broke and voiced all of my frustrations with our experience and there was no return text after that. There was also no return of our security deposit even though we left the place in good shape (there were no check out instructions, so we tidied up in a manner we thought reasonable). I assumed we weren't going to be compensated for a poor experience (we weren't), so we didn't pay the ridiculous linen fee. Don't stay here. Plenty of other choices.
Perfect location for easy ocean access!
Location, location, location! Just 2 blocks from the ocean this condo is the perfect location. Small but adequate for our group. The air was a bit musty which may be an issue for people with allergies. The WiFi was slow at the beginning but after we contacted the owners it improved greatly! If you don’t mind the hike to the third floor this is the perfect spot for a small group or family!
Nice quiet place to stay
The condo was very comfortable and was clean. With 2 bedrooms it was more than big enough for my cousin and I to each have privacy. Being only a block from the beach was wonderful and made it so easy to get there early then clean up for the rest of the day. I really enjoyed the family atmosphere in Cherry Grove. The only negative would be the complex maintenance man entering without any notice before of after while we were out. I do NOT feel this reflects on the owner but rather the property itself. It is disconcerting to find things moved when you come back from a day at the beach. A note on the door would have been appreciated. Again the owner does not have control in this situation.
Great place to stay.
Beautiful place to stay.
great beach cottage
My family (2 adults and 2 teens) enjoyed our stay at this beach cottage. It's an easy walk to the ocean, the kitchen is fully stocked so cooking meals is easy, the neighborhood is quiet, the pool is clean and the lake view is nice. As with most places with window AC units, the cottage is on the humid side, but we were comfortable. The owner was quick to respond with any questions. Cherry Grove has everything you need closeby - full grocery store, gift shops, good locally owned restaurants, minature golf, etc. There are plenty of activities in Myrtle Beach too.
This is a great little place! Short walk across the street from the beach. Very peaceful and quiet place. Loved the water. Note: This is on 3rd floor(top) and no elevator if you have a problem with walking up stairs. Went for girls weekend. Had everything we needed. Beds were dated, but were extremely comfortable..Air conditioners kept us cool all night.. Slept like a baby. Also loved meeting a few of the neighbors(very friendly) Was first time in Cherry Grove Beach...will definitely be back. Thanks for such a great place to stay. Owner was very easy to work with. You won't go wrong staying here. It was a little bit of "Heaven" at the beach. Can't wait to go back again, and would stay again each time I visit Cherry Grove.
