Beach Weddings, Renewal of Vows

Monday, March 21 2016

COVID-19 RESTRICTION:  During COVID-19, our regional health & tourism authority has limited events and functions to only those persons staying at a beach house.  (We are not presently accepting reservations involving events where the guest count exceeds the property's maximum occupancy)

Involved with a nearby wedding or renewal of vows?  Or perhaps a celebration on the beach?

Our ocean-to-river beach home(s) frequently serve as a base for wedding parties and guests that have arranged beachfront wedding ceremonies, receptions or other events at the nearby House of Refuge (a museum and local historical attraction 200 yards north of the beach houses), or other nearby venues, such as The Mansion at Tuckahoe or Marriott's Huchinson Island Resort.

Having said that, it's important to remember that our ocean-to-river beach houses are private homes located in a quiet beachfront community of ocean-to-river beach houses. We are not wedding or event planners.  We are not caterers. We do not stage or produce weddings, renewal of vows, or other substantial events.  We also lack certain important resources such as banquet facilities and large dance floors.  If you have a small do-it-yourself beachfront wedding in mind, we do have a few dozen white wedding chairs that you may place on the beach, but that is the extent of our wedding-related resources available to you.  Anything larger, and we recommend hosting your wedding and/or reception at a nearby venue.

So while we lack the facilities to host anything other than a very small wedding or reception, our beach homes provide a great opportunity for family and friends to lodge close to one another and share time together.  (Many of our houses are next-door to one another, which makes it easy to support very large parties of 20, 30, 40 or more.)   And to help with your wedding budget, we offer a 10% discount when booking two or more beach houses at the same time.

Note:  "As Good as it Gets"  tends to field more wedding parties than the other properties, owing to the large private beach to the north, which places it closest to the House of Refuge, and also provides the best photo opportunities.
