Peaceful Cherry Grove condo - updated w/lots of extras, sleeps 8 adults + 2 kids
Welcome to Beachwalk Villas, a luxury high rise condominium property in the desirable Cherry Grove Beach section of North Myrtle Beach. Everything you need for a relaxing and memorable vacation is here!
The property has two buildings, both directly on North Ocean Boulevard in Cherry Grove, North Myrtle Beach. On the ocean side is the beachfront amenity center, including an outdoor pool, an indoor pool, a hot tub, game room with ping pong and foosball, exercise facilities and bathrooms for a quick pit stop on the beach, as well as rocking chair porches to enjoy the sights and sounds of the surf. Behind the amenity center and across the street from the beach is the condo building, with 9 stories of condo units atop a 5 story parking garage. This affords stunning panoramic views of the ocean. Bayside of the condo unit is House Creek, where beautiful summer sunsets will take your breath away.
The beach here is fantastic, within walking distance to Cherry Grove Pier, and with powdery soft sand that squeaks when you walk on it -- perfect for tidal pools and sandcastles! The beach is wide, especially during low tide, and flat, for long rolling waves that are perfect for body boarding and body surfing.
What is your beach indulgence? Enjoy a stroll along the shore as you comb for shells and watch the pelicans dive into the surf. Relax in your beach chair and let the sounds of the ocean relax you as you admire your sand covered toes. Have a deep conversation with your companions as you idly watch the sandpipers running along the shoreline. Build a sandcastle and then jump the waves as you play a game of tag. No matter how you spend your beach days, memories will last a lifetime!
The condo is bright and spacious, with comfortable furnishings and tasteful design. With three large bedrooms and three full baths, up to 8 adults can sleep comfortably. A large kitchen, dining and living area all have views to the ocean and provide a happy gathering space. You're at the beach, after all!
How should you spend your day? Start your morning watching the sunrise on the balcony with a coffee or tea from the Keurig. Or skip the early bird routine and sleep in! Relax in the living room and enjoy views that will take your breath away. Enjoy a homemade breakfast in the well-appointed kitchen. Get geared up for the beach and within minutes you will be there! After a lovely day on the shore, the condo has three baths so that everyone can get cleaned up quickly and then on to the evening's activities. The beds will beckon you with high-quality sheets, soft pillows and plenty of room -- two rooms have king beds and the third has two queens. The condo also has two pack-n-plays, a booster seat, a single bed rail, toddler cups, plates and utensils, sand toys and a stroller for younger travelers. Four beach chairs, two umbrellas and a beach cart are available for our guests.
Updates in 2018 (so far!) include: new dining table, chairs and benches, new kitchen stools, new decor, new beach chairs and umbrellas. 2017 updates include: all new Whirlpool stainless appliances in the kitchen (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave), new Samsung TV and sound bar in the living room, new washer and dryer, new HVAC system, new queens and master king mattresses, new ceiling fans, new Corelle dishes, Towle flatware, Kirkland pots and pans, new wall art and decor, new balcony furniture, new towels and sheets, blankets and bedding and a new keypad door lock for easier in and out. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV. Internet and basic cable are provided. Some TVs are SmartTVs and can access your programming of choice.
Cherry Beach is perfect for all your vacation desires. As the farthest north beach along the Grand Strand, Cherry Grove is close to Calabash, NC where the seafood is legendary. Barefoot Landing is less than 8 miles away and has over 100 specialty shops, 16 restaurants, House of Blues and the Alabama Theater surrounding a gorgeous lake. Tanger Outlets is less than 10 miles away and has over 100 brand name outlets.
You're also a short ~30 minute drive to the attractions of Myrtle Beach, including the SkyWheel, the boardwalk and more. Broadway at the Beach is 18 miles away and features 3 theaters, over 20 restaurants and over 100 specialty shops. Golfers will love the wide selection of golf courses and mini-golf courses too. A wide variety of water sports are available around Cherry Grove area.
There are many popular restaurants in Cherry Grove, and fresh seafood is the main attraction. We recommend Hoskins and The Shack for easy, affordable and delicious meals.
A local grocery (Boulineau's) is less than a mile away, with an extensive hot buffet for each meal and ample supplies for your beach week. There is also a gift shop, ice cream shop, post office and hardware store. Across the street are some local restaurants and shops.

Christine likes music, beach walks, shelling, crafts, shopping and wine. Luke likes cars, Minecraft, swimming, biking and running. Matthew likes running into the ocean no matter the weather, pushing buttons and anything that spins.
Carl and Christine McMillan purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Carl and Christine McMillan chose Cherry Grove Beach
Carl grew up going to North Myrtle Beach, where his grandfather had a beach place. Christine grew up going to Ocean City, MD, where her family had an extensive annual family reunion. Family is so important to us, and we purchased this place so that our family could have a great place to go to visit with us. We rented this unit from the previous owner when we started our house hunting, and after a lengthy tour of various properties for sale, we sat down and Christine said, you know, THIS place is the kind of place that we're really looking for! And through some great fortune, the previous owner agreed to sell! We couldn't be happier... and please rest assured that we will do everything we can to make your stay as carefree and happy as possible!
What makes this Condo unique
Having rented our condo for two seasons now, we can honestly say that we ENJOY doing this and the happiness that our guests share with us makes it so worthwhile! For our condo, we try to buy the same quality things for our beach place that we buy for home use. Hopefully you'll agree that our property is indeed "well-appointed"! If there is anything you find that would make your stay even better, please let us know!

Unit exceeded expectations. Clean, spacious, well-appointed. Great views, conveniently located.
First, thanks Carl and Christine, for allowing us to stay here.
My wife and I stayed for month of Feb. The unit had everything you would need. My father and his partner as well as my son and his fiancée came for visits and the unit accommodated us all very easily, especially with each bedroom having its own bathroom. Fortunately, we had outstanding weather for the entire month and that only enhanced the enjoyment - great views of the ocean, walks on the beach, and with my wife being an artist, there was an abundance of inspiration with fantastic sunrises and an ever changing seascape. We found Cherry Grove to be fairly quiet (which we liked) but still convenient to stores, golf, etc.
In short, we had a great month and if available, we will be back. Thanks again.
Sounds like you had a really nice visit, and we love to hear that! We are also inspired by staying there and love to share that with others. Thank you so much for your kind remarks.
Very nice property and owners were available right away if needed.
Very nice 3 bedroom and 3 bath villa. It has easy access to beach. The kitchen supplies and utensils were stocked the best I have seen in a while. Owners were available right away if needed by text or phone. Our experience was a great at this villa and would recommend it to anyone.
A Thanksgiving to remember
We had a very memorable Thanksgiving during our stay here. The kitchen was fully stocked and we were able to prepare our whole meal easily. I think Carl and Christine have thought of all possible amenities that you may need during your stay. We were surprised by all the little details they paid attention to that helped make our stay so successful. Even down to beach chairs and toys! The communication was amazing and timely and they checked in on us upon our arrival via text and during our stay. The condo was very clean, fresh and comfy. Access to the beach was very easy and wonderful views. We were with grandparents and children and they all were very comfortable. Everyone enjoyed their stay and we will be back!
We're so glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving trip, and I'm glad I could help you figure out your plans for the big meal. And I'm glad your 7 year old and my 6 year old agreed on the "comfycozy"-ness of the condo!
Perfect place to enjoy the beach!
My mom and I took an extended weekend trip to North Myrtle Beach with my 1-year old. The condo had everything we needed! Great views, quiet neighbors, fully stocked! Everything was pretty much exactly as pictured. The owners were very, very helpful and prompt with responses! Traveling with a little one is almost always hard, but the amenities available with this unit made it a breeze! And the patio off the living room is wonderful! We spent most of our time out there, when we weren't at the beach:)!!
I know you're a seasoned traveler, Emily, and I'm glad that I could help make this trip one to remember. I really enjoyed getting to know you along the way, discussing the total solar eclipse and the plans each of us had. You helped me realize that traveling with young children (something daunting to me) is all about your perspective, and having young children should not keep you from doing what you love! I know it's a long distance and that you have big plans, but we'd love to have you back -- any time!!
Home Sweet Home
This condo truly makes you feel like you are a guest in someone's home instead of a renter. Carl & Christine were incredibly flexible, as our travel dates were messed up by Hurricane Irma. They were very accommodating, and allowed us to change both our arrival and departure dates to miss the storms and also get our whole vacation in. The condo itself is beautifully decorated, and spacious enough for our family of six to be comfortable. Many other reviewers have noted that it is very well stocked, and it is true - there was not one thing we needed that wasn't there somewhere. At some point during our trip, I stopped wondering if they had something, and just began asking myself where they kept it. They have anticipated practically any need a renter might have. Christine was also very attentive and responded to any inquiries right away. She is truly a perfect hostess! The condo is a very short walk to the beach, and the area seems private and secluded, but also close to all the restaurants and attractions. It's the perfect balance of fun and relaxing! Their section of the beach was great for swimming, boogie boarding, body surfing, sunbathing, and even shelling! We travel with our family multiple times each year, and this is by far our favorite place we have stayed. We can't wait to come back again and again!
I'm glad you didn't mention that I don't have a crock pot!! Ha ha! That was the only thing you asked for that I didn't have :) I'm so glad you could enjoy a wonderful September trip with your beautiful family. Hurricane Irma threatened to make your trip less than ideal, but in reality your children were able to discover things that most often are not found. When you sent me photos of the crab pot that had washed ashore, and the captive octopus that they rescued from it, I was so amazed at the opportunity that gave your family. And jealous too :)
Thank you for recommending Melt - we tried it in October but they no longer had the Lemon Meringue. It's apparently seasonal. I'll keep trying! Also thank you for recommending a trip to the inlet at the north point of Cherry Grove. I had no idea it was there and worth a look!
We hope to have you back soon and hear of more adventures!
Extraordinary, Magical Vacation!!!
There are not enough words to describe just how amazing Christine and Carl are as hosts! A few that come to mind are gracious, thoughtful, generous, accommodating, and kind. From the very first interaction, Christine was attentive and our continued engagement made it seem like we were speaking with friends and family, not just the host of a condo we would be renting. After weeks and months of researching prospective condos throughout Cherry Grove, Christine and Carl's thoughtfulness (which is evident in their condo and furnishings) just sealed the deal for us.
Christine and Carl thought up of everything, and I mean everything, a renter could need for their vacation. There were linens on the bed, towels in each of the three full bathrooms, beach carts, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys, shovels, net, dishes, kitchen towels, pots and pans, and even a massage chair! Yes, a massage chair! After a day of exploring, especially with toddlers in tow, that massage chair was super helpful!
The condo itself is huge with spectacular views! With its three bedrooms and three baths, the condo fit our entire family with room to spare. The view from the condo is beautiful and relaxing. Even a summer storm was gorgeous to observe from the safety of the condo. The beach was just a block away, which is easy to traverse even with toddlers, and then we had two pools to choose from if we decide to take a break from the beach.
As I type this in October and the fall season is upon us, oh how I do miss our beach trip to this condo. There were lots of wonderful memories made (even more so this year because we visited during the time of the Solar Eclipse) and Christine and Carl helped us greatly in making every moment magical. To show just how phenomenal they are, I (like the supermom that I am) left my sons' jackets hanging in the closet. After finding it, they immediately reached out to me and within a blink of an eye, the jackets came folded up nicely inside a box with a handwritten note from Christine. Now, if that wasn't magical, I don't know what is.
To Christine and Carl, thank you for making this beach trip truly one to remember!
To all who may be reading this, you will connect with one amazing host family when you rent this condo who will take care of you as if you were friend and family.
Thank you for reading and we wish everyone an extraordinary and magical vacation!
What you didn't say was that we texted more than I text my best friend in the week or two before your trip! I really enjoy renting to folks like you who make me smile as I get to know you and help you create your plans for a magical vacation. And yours was magical! Your son had a big birthday, AND you got to be in NMB for the solar eclipse! What an amazing opportunity and it couldn't have been for a nicer family. I really really enjoyed getting to know you and also all the different iterations of who was coming with you on your trip. So many cousins and aunties and uncles :) That's the best kind of vacation, bringing together families and gluing them with sand and salt air!
