House, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 14)
About Terence Mendes
We are a family of 6 from the suburbs of Washington DC. We love to travel to the beach together every summer with our dog Tikko which is why our home is pet friendly. We spent many summers in Myrtle beach and all our boys learned to boogie board there. This is our second home purchase in North Myrtle Beach and we hope to retire there one day.
Terence Mendes purchased this House in 2011
Why Terence Mendes chose Cherry Grove Beach
We choose this home because it is so close to the beach just a quick 2 minute walk and you're there! There are no high rise condos ocean front on our beach so its not crowded even during the peak of the summer rental season. It's located on a quite street with a palm tree lined yard walking distance to the Cherry Grove Pier, grocery store and many other ammenities.
What makes this House unique
Short walk to the beach and beautiful ocean views from the front porch and the windows in the great room. Walking distance of the grocery store and many other shops. Restaurants and local attractions are close by. Our home is located on a street with beach access and public parking lot 1 block away. Our driveway and carports have enough parking for 6 vehicles. We like to to be pampered when we go on vacation so we have equipped our home with top quality mattresses and bed linens. Our home is minutes from Starbucks, local restaurants, attractions, boat ramps,fishing, and more golf and mini golf courses than you can count!

Convenient to beach
Pleasant experience staying here. Loved having the private pool and very close to the beach. The elevator was a life saver for the ones with bad knees.
Cherry Grove House
The renting process was fine. The property itself was in a good location but everything was old and kind of worn out. The dishwasher barely worked and the freezer kept leaking.
The internet was also out the entire time we were there. I called the property owner to let him know the first day we got there, and he basically said he couldn’t help us.
We did break a table (which I informed him via message that it was broken and would be happy to deal with it). He kept the entire deposit.
In summary, the house was fine because it was mostly young kids, but I would not recommend it if you are looking for somewhere nice.
These guest left the property in poor condition, the broken table top was on the main dining room table a 60 x 60 piece of 1/4 inch glass costing more than $350.00 to replace well above the modest $200.00 security deposit we charge. When called about damage this guest refused to pick up the phone. Not only did the glass have to be replaced but the giant shards of broken glass had to be removed before the next guests checked in at 3:00 pm the same day which was an additional labor charge last minute as we not informed until 1 hour before this guests departure.
In addition the master shower had a fist sized hole in the fiber glass which was not reported by the guest. We often have student groups that try to rent during the early weeks of June and suspect this group was one of them. We do not allow anyone under the age of 25 to rent and will now be implementing a policy to ID guests upon check in to avoid any discrepancies as VRBO does not allow us to communicate with guests until after they book.
Our home is family owned and operated and we are diligent each year to make improvements and repairs so our guests enjoy their experience. This year (2019) we added a gas grill, 4 new lounge chairs and 16 new deck chairs and 6 beach chairs and 1 umbrella for our guests use.
Very nice.... Pleased with my stay....
Thoroughly enjoyed the property and my stay.... Would recommend to anyone... Great beach access yet plenty to do should you stay in.....
Thank you, we look forward to seeing you again next year!
We had a great time staying at this home. The proximity to the beach was probably the best part. The beach itself was wonderful. Very clean and lots of seashells for my kids to pick. The home was very spacious. There were 7 adults and 3 kids and we had more than enough room for all of us. The home was also well equipped with dishes/pots/pans, etc and there was a grocery store within walking distance as well as a couple ice cream stands and restaurants.
We encountered a few issues upon arrival, but the owners were very responsive and helpful. The problems were corrected within just a few hours. There were just a few things that would make the home even more enjoyable.
Beach chairs- most beach homes that I’ve previously rented have beach chairs for the guests use. It’s a simple thing that can make a big difference for days at the beach.
Heated pool/whirlpool- Giving the guests an option to pay an additional cost to heat the pool/whirlpool would be great. The kids didn’t mind the cooler water, but I know the adults would’ve preferred a warmer pool and a working hot tub
Cosmetic Issues- there were a few pieces of siding missing from the front of the home, as well as a soffit hanging from the roofs peak on the back of the home. There are also many shingles missing from the roof, which cosmetically isn’t appealing and could ultimately cause bigger problems for the home owners.
To be fair, I’m not sure if they’re aware of these issues but would obviously like to point them out so they can consider making some repairs.
Overall we had a great time at the property and would definitely stay there again.
The house was beautiful however dissatisfied that the pool and pool area were dirty upon our arrival
We had to spend time cleaning the pool area which wasn't fair. Plus the hot tub was cold as the pool. This was disappointing. I highly recommend investing in more comfortable beds as they were extremely uncomfortable. The location was perfect though.
Roomy and very clean
We loved this house for our family group of 14. It was very clean and roomy, close to the beach. We had some maintenance issues the first day, which were addressed promptly. Terry was very helpful. Would definitely do this house again.
Half a block to the beach. Within walking distance to Boulineaus's grocery store, golf cart rental, Duffy's Seafood Shack, Three blocks to the Cherry Grove fishing Pier.
