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 North Myrtle Beach


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.

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 .

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!

Annual Guys Beach Trip / Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a large group and has a prime location. Many restaurants are close by and the grocery store is only a couple of blocks away. Beach access is very close as well. Came to this house for our second annual trip and plan to return annually as our group's schedule allows. Owner is very accommodating and the whole process is a breeze. Favorite part about this property: double balconies.
