Welcome to 3 Monkeys at Bald Head Island! This newly renovated oceanfront second row home (there are no homes on our front row!) enjoys views of Bald Head's beautiful South Beach dunes and ocean from its spacious, open living areas and each of its four bedrooms. Our centralized 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. Walk, ride a bike or take a short golf cart ride to the Bald Head Island Club where golf, tennis, pool, workout facility, playground and restaurants await you with an optional temporary full golf membership. Bike or cart easily to the Market for groceries or a quick bite at their new café then browse the Maritime shops. Continue across the island to explore the beautiful maritime forest trails along Federal Road. We are an easy golf cart or bike ride back to the marina for dinner or icecream or to climb Old Baldy. Cart or bike over to East Beach to take in the tall dunes, natural seagrasses and Frying Pan Shoals. We have a new 4 seater cart and a new 6 seater cart.
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 stocked kitchen has granite countertops, tiled backsplash and stainless steel appliances, not to mention an abundance of serving pieces and cook’s tools. Our farm table seats 8 with space for another 4 at the bar. A lovely porch with dining for another 4 circles two sides of the house and extends to a front deck equipped with gas grill. The living area is tastefully decorated with plenty of comfortable seating. Enjoy napping in the hammock or rocking on the porch while the kids ride bikes around our quiet cul de sac. We have 5 adult and 2 child bikes and several child scooters for your use in exploring the island and further bikes are easily 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, enjoy a relaxing 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 luxurious bathroom with standalone soaking tub and large dual head rain shower. The beachfront screened porch is accessible from this bedroom (and from the living area) -- a fantastic place to have your morning coffee! Upstairs you will find a second king room with en suite bath, private deck and incredible ocean view. Opposite is the queen room also with a lovely oceanfront deck and a toddler bed. In the bunk/bonus room you will find an amazing ocean view from the glass doors and windows stretching up to the tall vaulted ceiling and opening to a large deck. Double sets of bunks, a pull out couch and pullout single provide sleeping for up to 7 in this room with pocket doors to close it off from the hallway as a bedroom. Comfortable 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 luxurious 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 enjoy 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 vehicle 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 lots of effort into making this a beautiful and comfortable second home. We hope you make yourself at home at treat it as you would your own!
