This was our first time this far north in Myrtle and we really fell in love with Cherry Grove. If you want a place with "action" go further south. If you like quiet, peaceful and relaxing, this is for you! The beaches were not crowded and we loved the short walk up to "the Point" where the inlet meets the ocean. There is a vast area of beach there where there is probably a hundred yards of beach in every direction from the last condos. Cherry Grove is a great area if you want to fish and explore as the inlet and Pier offer great beach alternatives. Normally we are always running into Myrtle for attractions but were so content in the condo and its beach that we only went into Myrtle 3 times during our stay.
The condo was very clean and very roomy and tastefully decorated. The view from the balcony is tremendous and the balcony is huge with comfortable furniture for either morning coffee and breakfast, or late night relaxation to listen to waves and enjoy a beverage. We had some friends over for dinner from another building one night and had 12 people in the condo and it was not one bit crowded. It is much wider than any beach condo we have stayed in and there is plenty of room to dine as well. The table was large and had 6 seats and there were also comfortable seats at the counter. The TV in the living room is a plasma TV which provides clear viewing even from a sharp angle (unlike LCD TV's.)
The beds were comfortable and everyone enjoyed having a private bathroom for each bedroom. The kitchen had all of the essentials for our meals and the appliances were all modern and in great working order.
I liked the fact that the condo had two assigned parking spaces so we never had to stress about losing our spot if we ran some errands. Elevators were pretty quick and were never a problem. In some larger buildings they can be a real hassle.
The owners were very accommodating and responded quickly to any inquiries although we really did not need anything as there were no problems. The only negative I can say is the pools were rather small. They were adequate for a couple of families but could be very crowded if there was a larger group of people there. I did miss having a hot tub in the pool area as well although the small indoor pool was very warm and we had a large jetted tub in the master bath.
All in all, we had a wonderful stay and recommend highly. This is a beach lover's delight and you won't want to leave!
