About Cheryl Nichols

My family moved here from Missouri 3 years ago. We had vacationed in Oceanside Village the year before we moved here and fell in love with the whole place. I have always wanted to own a bed and breakfast and this is as close as my husband will let me be. We have two perfect grandchildren who also live in Surfside and go to school at Sea Side Elementary just across the street from us. We all love the beach and all the fun Oceanside Village offers. We can usually be found at the beach, village park or pool. My husband, Billy teaches the water aerobics classes that are offered at the indoor pool on Tuesday and Thursday. If you want a real work out he is your man. He has had several back surgeries and water aerobics is the only exercise he is able to do comfortably. I am currently enrolled in Horry-Georgetown College in Conway, SC n (a 20 min drive from Surfside) finishing my degree to become a schoolteacher. Before moving here I owned and operated a preschool in our home and my husband Billy was in the flooring business for 35 years. My mother, Sylvia also lives with us and she loves being near her grandchild and great grandchildren. She especially enjoys the village for the tennis courts, the bi-weekly bocce game with the other residents and the library. All are just around the corner from our home. My daughter loves to come to the village on Saturday nights for Lucky Night (Bingo), very little $$ but lots of fun. She also loves all the stores close by (but that is another story). We moved here so our grandchildren could grow up by the ocean with lots of sunshine in a friendly safe environment. We have found the perfect place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have to say we have greatly enjoyed our stay here!! The kids waterpark was tons of fun. We went to Wonder Works and the kids loved it. Probably the best entertainment at the beach. The Nichols upstairs have now become family. The kids all had tons of fun together and Billy and Cheryl were beyond friendly. We have nothing negative to say.

Amazing experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay, look no further! This is the place for you! Cheryl and Billy were awesome hosts! They treated us like family and really loved on our kids! Our two year old was calling Billy "Papa" by the time we left! Our kids even got a chance to play with their grand kids! Cheryl and Billy made sure that everything was just right for our visit. The place was very clean and they provide all of the linens, towels, paper towels, dish soap, and hand soap! Cheryl even washes all of the rugs and comforters after each stay (which I know is not common at many rental places). Every time they saw us, they would ask if we need ed anything. We definitely felt at home! The kitchen was well stocked which made it very easy to cook our meals. The $20 gate key card (refundable at the end of your stay) made it very easy to park right at the beach, and all of the amenities (pools, courts, playground) were within a short walking distance! The price was right too! Thanks Cheryl and Billy for such an AWESOME time!

What a great find on VRBO!!! Cheryl and Billy are the best owners you will ever meet. They are very accommodating and concerned about your comfort during your stay at their spotless apartment. They make sure you feel right at home. If there are any issues or concerns, they will address them immediately. You will not be disappointed on your decision to rent from this couple. The apartment itself is super clean, well cared for and homey. The shower is a bit small, but the water pressure is great. The washer and dryer is also a plus. Beds are very comfortable, and you have a nice sized kitchen with full essentials. Consider spending your next vacation at the Cheryl and Billy rental at Oceanside Village in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. "Thank you for everything Cheryl and Billy."

Househunting at Myrtle Beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was great. Owner was very accommodating. Easy access to Highway and close to beach. We were there to house hunt so didn't really use all the amenities the place had to offer, but there were amenities. The one amenity we did use was a gate card that you had to give a deposit of $20 cash to get, but upon return of the card, the $20 was returned. This card not only worked for the gates into all of the entrances, but also to the free beachfront parking, which was the only amenity we did often as we could. The price couldn't be beat.

The only downside for us was the shower. It was small with a high step up to get into it, but it accomplished what was intended.

We recommend that apartment for the very good service of the owner. We was 3 adults and 3 kids and we had passed a very great and memorable time there. The security of the site is really high. Get your purple card to enter on site every time you want and to park fee at de beach. The swimming pool and and game are very nice. We will keep only good memories of our trip. Thank you Cheryl and Billy.

A tremendous experience!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know how to put into words how pleasant of a stay we had. Bill and Cheryl were nothing short of awesome! They were there to greet us when we pulled up, and were there for anything we needed during our week long stay with them. They go above and beyond to ensure that you have the most pleasant, and relaxing stay possible. They have a very nice rental setup to accommodate you with everything you could need. From easy private beach parking, the water aerobic class we attended with bill himself as the leader, to the convenience to all the stores a person could need. The only thing I could say that this place needs is us as permanent residents! One week at this place will make you want to move immediately. For a stay where you will be treated, and feel like family, this is THE place to stay.
