VIEWING THE VIDEO: The Drone was about 100 feet above my house and next to one of our houses: VRBO Listing #580386 - the two story "Green" house. The Drone camera turns 360 degrees to show the area. Our house has an umbrella on the "widow's walk". We were milling around while the video was recording. It doesn't take much to entertain us. Our other house VRBO Listing #580510 appears about 2 minutes into the video. It is the two-story "Green" house on pilings.

About Al Danielsen

I am a retired Professor of Economics (University of Georgia) interested in historic preservation. This property is an example. Three years ago the house was a beach-front duplex on a foundation. It was gifted to Habitat for Humanity so we purchased, moved and renovated. Houses two blocks from the beach are in a flood plane so we had to raise it 14 feet, build a "cradle" under it and install pilings. North Myrtle Beach building codes are very strict so we were required to make it a single family dwelling. We did so by connecting the Upper and Lower floors with an indoor stairway. However, we also installed new doorways on each level with dead bolt locks to ensure privacy for groups that desire some privacy. The house has all new windows, siding, electric wiring, pluming and two additional bathrooms. There are very few empty lots in Cherry Grove so new construction and major renovations like the one we undertook usually require tearing down older and usually smaller houses. This was a major project but preserves some of the "old style" beach houses. We have also renovated VRBO Listing #580386 which is a classic example of houses built in the 1950s..

Al Danielsen purchased this house in 2013

Why Al Danielsen chose Cherry Grove Beach


You can expect a great escape from the world of chaos just blocks from the beautiful ocean. Kick your shoes off and make yourself at home at our cozy beach house with all your basic amenities. Private setting...although moments away from every exciting attraction of Myrtle Beach. Don't bother packing all your bedding....we have it all set for you. Each bathroom has two towels and two washcloths.... if you need to do any laundry, there is also a washer and dryer available. Full kitchens so you can cook a nice family dinner or grill outside for family and friends. You can catch up on your favorite television show, social media or work (even tho work is not allowed on vacation 😂) with cable and wifi provided. You also have a personal host and hostess that are available at your request via text or phone call for any questions or issues or needs you may have to make your stay for comfortable.


The House is now located two blocks from the Beach and 'Downtown' Cherry Grove where there is a full-service grocery and hardware store. It is ideal for groups of close friends, extended families and family reunions. The upper and lower floors are connected by an interior stairway but each level has a door that can be locked from the inside with a dead bolt. Bunk beds are being installed in one of the bedrooms to increase sleeping capacity to 8 on each level. The maximum capacity for the house is 12 at present and will be 16 by next Spring and Summer. Each Level has 2 full baths with showers. The Lower Level has a bathtub with shower. Central heat and air conditioning as well as energy efficient windows and added insulation make this historic house better than new.

What makes this house unique

An outstanding feature of this property is the ability to provide privacy for two families or groups by locking the entrance doors to each level. Another special feature is its location and proximity to the beach, restaurants and shops. In addition, special care has been taken to restore and upgrade the property. If you believe in 'PRESERVATION' you will love what we have done.

Long term rental by a family that home schools their children would be ideal. The house is large enough to provide work places for a number of 'students'. Interludes at the beach and other spots would provide a very enjoyable learning experience.

This rental property is on a quiet street only blocks away from a fabulous beach. It's a short walk to a shopping area and a seafood restaurant. The house itself was spacious and we'll designed. It was comfortable and cool. We enjoyed our stay and would concider it again.

Great location!!!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property is 1 mile from boardwalk of North Mrytle beach where a little fairground is located and some shops and also 8 mins from the main street where you can find grocery stores, IHOP and other shops. The best part, is only a 5min walk to the beach and it's great! I was with my family and my kids didnt complain about the distance! Fabulous.

Now, the house needs some TLC and new furniture and pots and pans ( we had to go buy one )but overall it was great. The owner was great at responding quickly and I had no issues at all.

Overall 4 stars .

Owner's Response: Thanks Stephanie: Enjoyed having you and our family. We have taken your comments to heart. The couch and loveseats in both levels were in the house when we acquired it but have learned they cannot be maintained to our standards. We have replaced them with faux leather futons that are comfortable and much easier to maintain and use for sleeping. We have also trashed many of the older pots and pans and added more appropriate ones. I think you will like the changes when you return. Best wishes, Al

Relaxing and Fun

  • 4 of 5

Our stay over New Years was relaxing and fun. The weather was perfect! Because the house is very close to the beach, we were able to walk with our dog Herbie at least twice a day. The house had everything that we needed: a large kitchen for cooking and comfortable sofas and beds. We also enjoyed having our coffee on the outdoor balcony. The upstairs tenant was very nice and hopefully when we visit again in the future, our dogs can have an opportunity to play together!

Walk to Boulineaus/Ace Hardware for anything and everything. Walk to Basil's for a superb Pizza, Duffy's for excellent seafood, the Shack for down home Southern cooking, upscale Flounders for those who can afford it and downscale Harold's or take a taxi or Uber to Captain Poos on the Inland Waterway.


There are two beautiful courses overlooking the inland waterway - Tidewater and Glen Dornoch. Ten to 15 miles north you will find several Links courses that are fun to play - The Pearl comes to mind but there are others. Tiger Paw and other animal named courses are a little further north. Shaftbury Glen about 15 miles inland is wide open but interesting because it has elevated greens and very fast but fair greens. Longs is a fun course just 10 miles inland and interesting due to having dunes and wide stretches of sand that double as cart paths. Economy courses are also available within 10 miles. I would avoid the ones out Highway 9 during wet weather but they are among the most reasonable in terms of green fees. Diamond Back, Crown Point and some others out that way are very inexpensive but about 20 or so miles away. I especially like Diamond Back - horrible name of course - which along with being a little remote reduces play. When it was first opened 20 or more years ago they thought they could charge what the Glens courses were getting but soon found out their remote location, and perhaps it name, discouraged people from playing. Their strategy in recent years has been to be an economy course and it seems to be working out OK. I would advise playing nearby courses for those who have a limited amount of time. Another factor is that some of the nearby courses will probably not survive another decade or so since the land values are increasing. We have already lost Gator Hole which is now a major shopping area and residential development. The same fate awaits Bay Tree which was once a 54 hole course that closed about ten years ago and is just now being developed. Heather Glen, a 27 hole course that we used to play a lot has recently closed and is scheduled to become a housing development and who knows what else. East Port was closed for several years but the residents around the course successfully sued to keep the course open. It is one of the least expensive courses but also not a particularly good one. If you have good players and long knockers I would not advise playing this one. Possem Trot has a really nice practice facility and is a reasonably good course for the money. It is mostly flat and not particularly picturesque but has some challenging holes. Most of the courses I mentioned above are within five miles of Cherry Grove and some within about three. There are a lot of other courses nearby that are interesting to play and very economical. I should also mention Harbour View which is a par three course with a driving range. Thanks for giving me the opportunity of describe some of the courses. I will be putting this on the web in several places and will edit and refine it as time permits.


Deep Sea Fishing out of Little River SC is 3 miles. Pier Fishing one-half mile and fishing in the Inland Water Way one-half mile via Ocean Boulevard. Surf fishing goes without saying.


NMB Acquatic and Fitness Center is a modern indoor facility about 3 miles away.

Families and young adults usually occupy this house from two to six days. The large number of guests and frequent turnover make it difficult if not impossible to meet the personal needs of each guest. We do not provide the amenities you expect when renting a hotel or motel overnight. We do provide essentials for a day or two depending mostly on the size of your group. Members of a large group should bring their own towels, personal items, beach equipment and the like or plan to buy or rent them. Stores in the area offer competitive prices on almost everything.
