When house is not used for wedding or events, what can the large oceanfront area be used for?

Permanent stakes for tenting purposed and electrical outlets will be readily available in this area.

The event fee does not cover moving furniture back to its original place, excessive trash left at the home, excessive cleaning (both inside or outside), or damages to the property (both inside or outside).

Can you please describe the Pool and Lazy River? 

Sound to Sea Beach Club offers the first Lazy River home in the Outer Banks. The impressive pool starts with a flat 2 feet deep area great for kiddie pool or a place to relax in your beach loungers with water surrounding you. You can then step down into the main pool area which descends to 5 feet. In between these two pool areas is a swim up bar. A fun Lazy River circles the entire pool and even goes under a bridge with water jets (tubes provided!).  

Can the pool be covered for events? 

Sound to Sea Beach Club offers the Outer Bank its first Lazy River Pool.  Although the pool cannot be covered, it shouldn’t be necessary. The design of the home provides a large area beyond the pool area to allow for maximum tenting (30x60).  During events, the lighted pool will serve as an impressive backdrop.  LED light globes will be provided in the Lazy River which will circle the pool area creating a memorable effect.

Is the pool area fenced? 

The pool area will be completely fenced with nice looking fencing that has lights for a nice evening effect.

Will there be direct access to the dune deck and beach from the pool? 

There will be a gate that will provide direct, easy access to the oceanfront dune deck and beach.

Anything else we should be aware of? 

The house has been designed with significant input from one of the top Wedding Planners in OBX.  We have added these types of features to the design to ensure a great event.

"Similar to" photos were taken from a sister house, the Pine Island Beach Club (ER009). While maintaining the warm feeling exhibited in the pictures shown, Sound to Sea Beach Club will be decorated in a lighter and more bright beach decor suitable for an event home.

With its Lazy River Pool, 16 bedrooms, putting green and large space near the oceanfront loaded with outdoor games, the house provides an incredible family vacation home.

Sound to Sea Beach Club (EC3) is a sister house to the Pine Island Beach Club (ER009) which is located on the same street and only six (6) houses apart.  Should a guest be interested in renting both houses, special discounts will apply.  With EC3 and ER009 combined, the homes would offer a total of 28 bedrooms.
