Fred was born and raised in Croatia, Cheryl was born and raised in Iowa. They met at Loma Linda University in S. California, where they both graduated with degrees in violin performance. Later Fred chose dentistry and graduated in 1975 from Loma Linda Univ. School of Dentistry.

Cheryl received her Master's Degree in violin performance from Univ. of S. Calif in Los Angeles, and went on to perform and teach for 35 years. After practicing dentistry in Guam for 8 years and teaching on the faculty at the School of Dentistry in Loma Linda for 15 years, Fred & Cheryl chose to retire in the Black Hills of South Dakota, because of their wish to live in a quieter and more rural environment. They have never been disappointed with their decision, even though many of their family and friends wondered why they would ever want to 'move to South Dakota!!' As the years have passed, their family now understand why they were attracted to the Black Hills!! Fred and Cheryl decided to build another home, but this time with a vacation rental apartment, where they can host people from all over the world! They look forward to having you stay with them. They enjoy making their guests feel at home during their visit and they hope you will enjoy the Black Hills as much as THEY do!!

Fred & Cheryl purchased this apartment in 2014

We chose this area for it beauty and tranquility, and yet its close proximity to small city life and to endless beautiful sights and scenic places to visit, which are still quite unspoiled from commercialism. It's a known fact that 'The Black Hills are the best kept secret in the Nation!'

This lovely apartment is the entire downstairs of our new home, same floor plan, built last year. We just finished the apartment in June 2014!! Mt. Rushmore is just 20 min. from your door (Visible from our deck!) --- close enough for convenience, and yet far enough to avoid the tourism rush. At this quiet location, you would never know that there are over 3 million visitors that visit Mt. Rushmore each year!! There are great restaurants throughout the Black Hills, and of course, plenty of good shopping and restaurants in Rapid City. We are centrally located - within an hour of any attraction in the Black Hills.

Very Clean/Friendly Owners/Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of booking our first experience on VRBO.com with Cheryl and Fred and their new basement apartment. Cheryl was very good and quick at responding to any questions I had prior to arriving. When we arrived, right away I noticed how well maintained the property was and the cleanliness of the home (as I am a "neat and tidy" person and this is a big perk to me). Everything is provided for you, including pots and pans, silverware, knives, cutting boards, colander, coffee cups, bowls, plates, Ziploc bags, flyswatter, games, maps/vacation guides and information, blankets/sheets/pillows/extra blankets, towels/washcloths, soap/lotion, wipes, cleaners, trash bags, ice, stereo/tv/Netflix, computer/internet access, alarm clocks, nightlights, and more. There are 2 queen beds, one on each end, and there are 2 futon mattresses for extra guests. There is a separate entrance for you from the main entrance of the owners so you can come and go as you please. We are a family of 5, kids ages 15, 11, and 4. This home is built in the pines and is very peaceful sitting out back to grill and enjoy the day/evening outside. We did get a chance to see some deer come up to the driveway a few times. I chose this location because of how close it was to Keystone (Mt. Rushmore), Highway 16, and Rapid City. Deadwood, Sturgis, are a bit of a drive north but it is not too far. Hill City is very close as well. Custer park is just a short drive too. The home is located on the highway that leads you to Mt. Rushmore, and the Rushmore Caves/Zipline is right up the road. We were able to eat most of our meals at the home, which saved us on eating out as much due to having a table and breakfast bar at the home. The beds were very comfortable and there are plenty of blankets/pillows for all. We really felt it was an enjoyable stay and would recommend it to others.

A perfect place in a wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5
I booked this home after speaking with the owners and was looking for a nice week in the Black Hills but what I found was a wonderful place that far surpassed my hopes and expectations. The rental is newly finished, every well furnished, fully stocked, visually appealing, comfortable beds, just great! The setting is beautiful, in a wooded area, outside seating area with lovely views, close to the road but far enough away to be peacefully quiet. Even had a deer that would rest outside my door on some afternoons. The owners, Fred and Cheryl, are a wonderful couple who not only provide information and directions for local sightseeing but also make your stay in their apartment optimally enjoyable with their attention to detail. I was lucky enough to be invited to their home for a Friday evening party that included them playing their violins (so wonderful) and sweet conversation with their guests. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone wishing for a great vacation along with a great place to stay while on vacation. I would have loved to stay longer but they already had another renter coming in so I had to move on. I will definitely come back here again - hopefully soon. Thanks Fred and Cheryl for a wonderful week.

Wonderful-Clean and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect! We stayed for 4 nights with our 3 kids. There was plenty of space for play plus a full kitchen which saved us a ton on meals. Fred and Cheryl thought of everything, plenty of towels, ice, extra sheets, even stuff for spill clean-up which you know will happen with kiddos. One of our kids has severe allergies: animal, dust, and chemical. We had no issues during our stay, which means their place was really clean, not just on the surface. No heavy fragrance on the linens, no animal dander, etc... The nights were quiet and everyone slept great! Thank you so much.

Mt. Rushmore is sure to be one of the highlights of your Black Hills vacation. The monument is open year-around, although the summer months feature a spectacular lighting ceremony nightly which is very special.

Crazy Horse monument is another famous monument dedicated to the rich Native American history that exists in this area.

If hiking is your passion, you'll want to hike Harney Peak, which is the highest mountain, going east, between the Rocky Mountains and the Swiss Alps!

Museums are numerous.

There are also many caves in the Hills which attract visitors from far and wide.

The famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (first week of August) draws thousands of bikers from all over the world.

Whatever your particular interests, there is something to satisfy every member of your party, whether it be hiking, boating, golfing, hunting, kayaking, swimming, caving, bicycling, rock climbing --- you may find it all in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Perhaps you would prefer just a quiet retreat from your hectic life. No problem! We're happy to say, the Black Hills enjoys a smaller population which allows visitors plenty of room to enjoy the sights and venues without overcrowding. One can usually find accommodations, even at the last minute (with maybe the exception of Sturgis Rally).

There are too numerous sights to mention each one, but when you arrive, we will supply you with plenty of information to help you plan your holiday in the Hills!
