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!
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!
