Leave your Troubles at the Door 

The South is always welcoming and A Blue Monkey shares in this calming trait, inviting guests to step inside and begin a journey filled with comfort, joy, and breathtaking views. Offering an inverted floor plan with all but one of the bedrooms located on the first floor, our tour is actually going to begin on the second level, with a walkthrough of the public spaces. The open-concept floor plan is filled with light, thanks in part to walls of windows, sliding glass doors, and a series of skylights that can help a rainy day seem more romantic as the raindrops tiptoe gently across their surfaces.

Creamy-hued walls complement the walnut floors, and vaulted ceilings add drama to the simple décor below. A leather sofa in chocolate leather and two matching chairs with ottomans anchor the floorplan of the living room, placed to maximize the views of the water just outside. The state-of-the-art television is tucked away in the corner opposite, while just beyond, lies two large dining tables, pushed together to create one large area for dining, playing games, and relaxing in between adventures.

Maybe this is the spot you will leave a partially constructed puzzle spread out, taking spare moments to push little pieces of cardboard into their correct spaces, or maybe you will use the table for morning conversations shared with coffee as you prepare to begin each day. The fully equipped kitchen lying off to the side ensures that meals won’t have to be carried far to be enjoyed. A modern space offering a farmhouse appeal, the kitchen is roomy enough for multiple chefs to share the space, working together to create the family meal.

Throughout the home, constant reminders that the sea is within close proximity can be found in the artwork and décor, but is it really necessary when you can catch glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal waterways through nearly every window on this level. Step out onto the wood deck that is lined with brightly colored rocking chairs, perfectly aligned to enjoy views of the sea and the pool and hot tub located on the lower level. Yes, dear travelers, this beautiful escape offers its own private pool and hot tub, ensuring that every day of your stay will be filled with water choices!

View of the deck of A Blue Monkey vacation home

Hang out with your toes buried in the soft sands of Holden Beach feeling sea breezes kiss your cheeks as the music of ocean waves bring peace to your soul. Or, spread out a colorful beach towel on the wood deck and bask in the warmth of the North Carolina sun, in between dips in the coolly refreshing waters of the crystal clear pool. The hot tub is perfect for use any time of the year, adding romance and warmth to your getaway and helping keep muscles loose as the jets ease any aches or pains. 

It Just Keeps Getting Better!

A Blue Monkey offers all the comforts of home and nowhere is that more apparent than in the 4 bedrooms it provides. Light filled when you want them to be, but still offering the ability to close out the sun and sleep later in the mornings, each room provides that something extra that encourages sleep and respite. The private baths attached to each of the 4-bedrooms help to lessen morning traffic jams and ensure that each guest has privacy, while the master bath is anchored by a deep jetted tub that will come in handy when the hot tub on the deck is in use by others.  Three of the four bedrooms offer balconies where you will want to enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings, one provides a king bed and ocean views, and one guest room promises to be the delight of your children, furnished with two sets of bunk beds from which secrets will be shared, whispers will be a little too loud, and giggles will be uncontrollable!

The longer days and warmer temperatures serve as a reminder that summer, and the holidays that accompany this most wonderful time of the year, isn’t that far off. As a matter of fact, by now you may be already starting to think about where you want to spend the first of those summer holidays, especially Memorial Day! You may be imagining sandy beaches and sunsets over the sea, long days spent frolicking and relaxing, and nights that bring comfort, rest, and deep sleep in soft beds. And because if you know, you know, those daydreams may be pointing in the direction of one of North Carolina’s most idyllic barrier islands, Holden Beach. Our golden beaches have been making dreams come true for decades and discerning travelers have discovered that their most comfortable dreams come true when they choose PROACTIVE Vacations for shelter during their Memorial Day getaway! This guide to spending Memorial Day on Holden Beach may start pointing your dreams in the same direction!

Feel the Peace

Beaches have always brought peace and tranquility to our souls and our beaches offer the perfect example, but it’s more than sand and sea that has that effect, it’s the island itself. Feel your shoulders loosen, your troubles dissipate, and all your cares melt away within seconds of arriving on the island. The quiet serenity of Holden Beach, as opposed to other islands that may offer a more frenetic atmosphere, burrows its way into your soul. As you begin to relax and settle in for the start of a fun-filled Memorial Day escape, it will be easy to forget that this special adventure will not be one that lasts forever.

This Way to the Beach

After you unpack your luggage and stock the pantries and refrigerators in our fully equipped kitchens, it will be time to begin your vacation in earnest and what beach vacation would be complete without at least one day spent at the beach? Having chosen one of our PROACTIVE Vacations oceanfront sanctuaries, you won’t have far to walk and as you cross the wooden boardwalk that leads to golden sands dragging your gear behind you, the day stretches out in front of you, filled with promise. Stake your claim on the segment of beach closest to your home marking your territory with a colorful umbrella and beach chairs that match, perhaps offering a cheerful red, white, and blue color scheme in honor of the holiday! At this point, we suggest you slather on the sunscreen before going any further, but we promise, this is the last activity you will have to do. The rest of this day will be filled with adventures that are tailored to your personality, even if those adventures involve nothing more than a magazine, a beverage, and earbuds filling your ears with the music you love, proving once again there is no wrong way to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday!

Shop the Sales

This holiday is famous for its sales and when you spend some time dipping in and out of the shops of Holden Beach, you are sure to find the perfect gift at a really good price!

Take a few minutes to enjoy the views from the covered porch, sinking into one of the rockers that line up against the railing, temporarily leaving your bags at the doorstep of your Holden Beach escape and waiting until the serenity of the scene you are staring at sinks into your soul.

Finally opening the door to beauty and calm, it’s time to follow the path of engineered hardwood floors (designed to resemble the driftwood on the beach) into spaces filled with light and warmth. The colors of the sea are vibrant ones that are reflected in the décor of Sweet Carolina, including sky blue painted walls, the red of coral in the art work, and an assortment of other sea themed hues that help keep the beach near, even as sea themed art reminds you that the beach is “just over there!” The living room is a vibrant space, offering tropical prints on the white painted wicker furniture and a state-of-the-art television that carves out its own perch in a book shelf fully loaded with art, games, books, and movies, with the latter of which being intended for use by our guests.

An open concept floor plans lets visitors stay connected as they do their own thing leads visitors to the next room on the tour, the dining room that is situated directly behind the living area. Anchored by a farmhouse-style table surrounded by red chairs and a charming bench, this is where games will be played, meals will be devoured, and important conversations will be held. The kitchen of Sweet Carolina is a modern room, filled with painted white cabinets topped with granite countertops, and offering a large breakfast bar that is the perfect spot to enjoy donuts in the mornings, a glass of wine in the evenings, or leftovers by the light over the microwave.

The garage areas that are downstairs from the main living space offer more places to play. A ping pong table, a billiard table, and even a poker table make this space entertainment central, as does the large television mounted to the wall. The backyard of this charming beach cottage offers another cool surprise in the form of a crystal clear pool, surrounded by wood decking and wicker lounges that are sure to make the white-fenced backyard one of the most popular spaces in the home! An outdoor shower can also be found out here, ensuring that the sand from your day at the beach stays in the great outdoors where it belongs.

Sweet Dreams

Each of the 4 bedrooms is designed to give occupants the best night’s sleep of their lives.

Our moms have shown us the beauty of unconditional love, support, and protection from the first moments spent outside the womb and they deserve something really special on the day dedicated to all moms everywhere. Holden Beach, a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina, may not be the only place worthy of a Mother’s Day vacation, but we can promise it will bring out the shining excitement in your mom’s eyes! It may have been a while since Mom was actively parenting you and your siblings and vacation with everyone, the original nuclear family plus spouses and the grandchildren that complete her world will bring her back to those wonderful days of your childhood when all her ducklings were housed under the same roof.

Choose a beachfront home with enough bedrooms for the adults to have their own space, letting the cousins bunk together and build a bond that will last a lifetime, a sight that will bring tears of joy to Mom. Mornings can start with solo walks along sandy shores as the rest of the family slowly awakens and evenings enjoyed from the deck of the home, watching the sunset over the sea with a glass of wine in hand will bring moments of peace and serenity. Inside, mom can choose a seat at the breakfast bar, imparting tips on how to make your favorite meals to her standards in our cheerful kitchens, she can choose the shows she wants to watch on the state-of-the-art televisions in the living rooms, and she can end every day in peace and quiet in her own bedroom retreat. Playing games with the whole family at the dining room table is a popular rainy day activity and on days when the sun is shining brightly, mom can help the grands build sandcastles at the water’s edge; many properties offer outdoor showers to ensure that sand stays outdoors where it belongs!

Our PROACTIVE Vacations’ smaller cottages will provide the idyllic vacation she deserves and an opportunity to relax, recharge and revel in beachy adventures.

Living rooms with comfy sofas provide the perfect place for a mid-afternoon nap (no one deserves a nap more!) and the dining tables will give mom a beautiful and restful spot to enjoy a cup of coffee as she scrolls through her favorite social media sites every morning of her stay! High-speed internet ensures that Skype calls with the kids are crystal clear (this may have been the longest time she has spent away from your sweet children!) and also provide easy streaming of your favorite music; choose a channel that plays slow music and dance together at sunset, letting the serenity of the sea and the beauty of the moment create a memory she will never forget! At night, quiet bedrooms are havens of tranquility, some offering ensuite baths that invite moms to sink into their depths and relax even further. Televisions in the bedrooms of many offer a way to ease the transition from wide awake to happily asleep, generously sized windows provide views of the sea, and curtains or blinds that can be drawn shut to keep the sun out on mornings mom wants to sleep in!

When you want your Holden Beach vacation to be absolutely perfect, smart travelers know that the best vacations begin and end with the sanctuary they choose to shelter them. Not satisfied with a beach vacation near the beach, you want a beach vacation ON the beach, offering the laid-back waterfront lifestyle and the serenity of the sea to fill your every moment. Our Pop’s Inn property at PROACTIVE Vacations will meet and exceed your every desire! Offering four tranquil bedrooms, two spacious baths, and room for up to eight travelers to live together in peace and harmony, this charming seaside cottage will brighten your vacation days and embrace you during your vacation nights! Today, we are shining the spotlight on Pop’s Inn, building up your anticipation of a beach vacation you will never forget.

Filled with Light and Warmth

This cottage is warm and welcoming, and when you step into its light-filled spaces for the first time, you will fill instantly at home. Built on stilts, the clapboard-sided structure stands high, providing excellent views of the sea in its backyard, and as you dash up the steps, knowing your vacation is about to begin for real, the sounds of waves crashing against the sandy shores will provide a serene background to the start of your most favorite chapter in your personal autobiography!

The living area of Pop's Inn

Follow the paths made of wood to the first stop on our tour of beauty, the living room of Pop’s Inn. Here is where family or friends will lounge on colorful and soft sofas and chairs, all precisely placed so as to enjoy views of the state-of-the-art television mounted to the wall in the corner and the star of this vacation show, the sea that lies just beyond the oversized sliding glass doors that lead out to the balcony. Keep these doors open and let the scents, sights, and sounds of the water be a constant companion to your interior adventures or simply spend as much time as you can on the white-painted rocking chairs that are lined up on along the rails. This outdoor space will be your favorite, and if you do nothing more than sit out here with your favorite tropical beverage in hand, toasting the sun as it sets beautifully day after day, then we think you can consider this vacation a complete success!

But for now we are going to take this tour back inside, visiting all the rooms left unexplored up to this point. Throughout Pop’s Inn, the sea is a constant theme, apparent in the hues of sky, sand, and sea that adorn all the surfaces, in the paintings of whimsical heron hanging on the wall behind the cobalt blue sofa, and in the materials used for pillows, blankets, and more. The dining room in the open concept floor plan features a long wood table surrounded by cushioned wicker chairs and enjoys the same views as the living room, making it the perfect place to play games, build puzzles, and daydream over a cup of coffee and a snack. (You can eat here too, of course!) The kitchen is a spacious room gleaming white and featuring granite countertops, painted white cabinets, subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances that might just encourage you to prepare a meal every once in a while! Also offering a full-sized laundry set, this kitchen is a multipurpose space that the family will love to hang out in, and with five wood stools bellying up to the breakfast bar, it’s the ideal spot for morning bowls of cereal.

The bedrooms of Pop’s Inn each offer something special that makes them stand out, ensuring that no guest feels slighted. There are flatscreen televisions in every room except one, but the one without the television is an oceanfront space with two twin beds and incredible views. The bedroom with a king bed offers street views and shared access to one of the baths, (as do all the bedrooms) but often, instead of choosing this as a master suite, tired parents seeking peace will enjoy the comforts of the queen bed in the oceanfront bedroom, where multiple sets of windows can be opened to let in the light and the sights and sounds of the ocean. The last bedroom is another twin room, also offering two twin beds, a colorful mural of an octopus in snorkeling gear, and its own television. All bedrooms are comfortable, serene, and spacious, ensuring that every night’s sleep will be deep and filled with happy dreams.

Anytime travelers can enjoy Holden Beach they’re in for a treat but those heading here over Easter have even more to look forward to. In April, Holden Beach offers up a variety of options for expanding an itinerary whether you’re looking to make the most of egg hunting fun, or you’re up for some on-the-water adventure. Either way, you’ll find what you’re looking for here and the following Holden Beach activities are just a few of the many reasons you won’t want to miss out on Easter 2023 in Holden Beach.

The Night Egg Hunt Is on Once Again!

Get Out on the Water and Explore

Typically mild April temperatures across Holden Beach may not lend themselves to time sunbathing or getting in the water for a swim, but that doesn’t eliminate options for enjoying time on the waves! If you’re the type of Easter traveler that finds their getaway state of mind most easily when you’re sailing, partnering up with Backwater Adventures & Rentals while you’re in town is a must. This premier rental equipment company is headquartered in Supply and serves the entirety of Holden Beach with quality on-the-water gear and fishing and sightseeing experiences too.

They offer up the accessories needed to make the most of sightseeing along the Intracoastal Waterway as well as the surrounding estuaries.

Either way, it’s a great opportunity to support local artisans.

Make Time for a Stop at the Museum of Coastal Carolina

If you’re traveling to Holden Beach with little ones in tow this year, spending an afternoon at the Museum of Coastal Carolina is always a great place to pair education and entertainment.
