Welcome to 3 Monkeys at Bald Head Island! This modernized oceanfront second row home (there are no homes on our front row!) enjoys vistas of Bald Head's striking South Beach dunes and ocean from its cavernous, open living areas and each of its four bedrooms. Our central location on one of the best swimming beaches of the island means you are not far from anything. We have memberships to both the Bald Head Island Club (full golf membership) and the Shoals Club, which are options for our guests for a temporary membership fee paid to each club. We keep our home well supplied so you can pack lightly (beach towels, paper products, soaps, detergents, kitchen wraps and travel sized soap/shampoo/conditioner are all there for you).
Walk, ride a bicycle or take a short golf cart ride to the Bald Head Island Club where golf, tennis, pool, workout facility, playground and eateries await you with an optional temporary full golf membership. Bicycle or cart effortlessly to the Market for groceries or a fast bite at their café then browse the Maritime stores. Continue across the island to discover the charming maritime forest trails along Federal Road. We are an simple golf cart or bicycle ride back to the marina for dinner or ice cream or to climb Old Baldy. Cart or bicycle over to East Beach to take in the tall dunes, natural seagrasses and Frying Pan Shoals. We have a new 4 seater golf cart and a new 6 seater golf cart for your use.
The L shaped open kitchen to dining to living area floorplan is washed with natural light from a beachfront wall of glass doors and windows. The well outfitted kitchen has granite countertops, tiled backsplash and stainless steel appliances, not to mention an abundance of serving pieces and prepare’s tools. Our farm table seats 8 with space for another 4 at the bar. A splendid porch with dining for another 4 circles two sides of the home and extends to a front deck equipped with constructed in gas grille. The living area is attractively decorated with plenty of comfortable seating. Savor napping in the hammock or rocking on the porch while the kids ride bicycles around our cul de sac. We have a few various sized bicycles for your use in exploring the island and additional bicycles are conveniently rented on the island.
Each bedroom opens to a porch or private deck from which you may listen to the waves of South Beach lap onto shore, savor a calming chair and your favorite book, or just watch the sunset -- one of the only places on the East Coast where you can actually watch the sunset over the ocean most of the year! If for some reason the wonders of exploring the island are not enough entertainment, there are flat screen tvs in the living area and each bedroom. The downstairs king master suite includes a extravagant bathroom with standalone soaking tub and huge dual head rain shower. The beachfront screened porch is accessible from this bedroom (and from the living area) -- a marvelous place to have your morning coffee! Upstairs you will find a second king room with ensuite bath, toddler bed, private deck and amazing ocean view. Opposite is the queen room also with a pretty oceanfront deck and desk. In the bunk/additional room you will find an extraordinary ocean view from the glass doors and windows stretching up to the vaulted ceiling and opening to a enormous deck. Double sets of bunk beds, a pullout couch(double) and pullout chair (single) provide sleeping for up to 7 in this room with pocket doors to close it off from the hallway as a bedroom. Cozy leather seating and an entertainment center with games, toys, books and videos are useful when you need downtime indoors.
For us, time spent at 3 Monkeys at Bald Head Island is all about quality time with family and friends: time spent relaxing, exploring, exercising, swimming, playing, cooking, reading and talking...together. We have endeavored to make 3 Monkeys feel opulent but not fragile, well equipped but not cluttered, coastal but not overdone, clean and comfortable with all of the amenities, supplies and toys you need to appreciate the most from your vacation here. You will find beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, even golf clubs neatly organized in the garage for your use. So, leave your car in Southport and embrace life on the island, exploring by golf cart, bicycle or your own two feet. Kids of all ages will soon ditch the electronics for all the wonders of the island: the beach, the maritime forest trails, the Conservancy Center, the lighthouse, the marsh boardwalks and countless other outdoor attractions. We look forward to sharing Bald Head Island and our 3 Monkeys with you. We have put tons of effort into making this a handsome and comfortable second home. We hope you make yourself at home and treat it as you would your own!
*3 Monkeys is a PET COMPLIMENTARY, SMOKE COMPLIMENTARY home due to allergies!
