“Monkeydoodle” is a combination of our kids’ nicknames (“Monkeyshorts” and “Stinkerdoodle”). The home, like the name, represents a combination of things we love best. The stainless countertops and appliances in the kitchen give it a modern, European feel, while the custom furniture made of local, reclaimed materials evokes a more cozy Northwest vibe. The metal and wood theme continues with the rolled-steel pub table, and the wrought-iron bicycle wheel bar stools.
We’ve stocked the kitchen with all appliances and gadgets that are important to us, including a crockpot for winter stews, and a blender for smoothies and margaritas.
The living room also blends local, handcrafted furniture with a top of the line sofa and reclining chairs. A 46-inch HDTV fronts the sleeper sofa and gas fireplace. If you’re not in the mood to watch the wide variety of movies (McQueen to Nemo), then there are plenty of books, games and puzzles for your entertainment.
Downstairs, the kids can enjoy their own bunkroom, complete with Wii gaming system, cable TV for SpongeBob marathons and even a first-generation playstation if you’re feeling nostalgic and want to appreciate how far graphics have come! All beds have down comforters plus ultra-soft throws. Monkeyshorts chose the green and blue duvet covers. Stinkerdoodle is partial to red. So, those staying in the bunkroom get their choice of bedding according to their (or, rather, our kids’) taste... and good luck getting them out of their pillow-top mattresses in the morning!
The master bedroom boasts a sleep number adjustable mattress with a memory gel mattress topper, as well as a 36-inch flatscreen smart TV. We are also excited about the adjustable shower-head and shower bar in the bathroom, so the shorter bathers can also enjoy a powerful stream of water.
The hot/cold faucet outside is perfect for washing dirty dogs (of both the canine and foot variety), and the glider bench offers some variety if you’re not interested in relaxing in the Adirondack chairs while the kebabs are grilling on the Weber grill. Your dogs can enjoy the freedom of the fully-fenced front yard, and the beach toys are in the shed near the front gate.
Monkeydoodle comes equipped with Wi-Fi, free local and long distance telephone, and a great selection of DVD’s, board games and books for all ages. You are only steps away from the treehouse made out of the largest old growth stump in the area and the delightful gnome trail to the beach, filled with whimsical fairy houses.TripAdvisor property ID 2478588...Read more
