Additional Info Weddings & Parties

Please read the additional information about wedding receptions and most weekend party events at The Douglas Beach House. Note we do not rent out to graduation parties, birthday parties for children or baby showers.

Rental Fees

The Douglas Beach House (event center) rents for $4,495.00 on weekends during off-peak season (November-March) and $4,995.00 during peak season. The rental is for the facility and you would arrange for the caterer and everything else.

Tables & chairs

We have tables and chairs available at no additional charge. Typically, the catering company of your choosing will set up/breakdown and make the arrangements for the rental of additional items such as linens, china, glassware etc. as they are not included in the rental fee of the Douglas Beach House.

Your event window

We offer you a 5-hour window for your event and 2-3 additional hours for set up and breakdown. If it’s an evening event we do require that all amplified music end by 9:30 pm and all guests must depart the premises by 10:00 pm.

Regarding catering

You may choose your own catering company or our preferred one which is Joy Portelli at Event Savvy who will help you customize your menu and calculate the catering cost. Joy’s contact information is as follows:
Phone: 650.728.9436


You would arrange for all alcohol – which means you are free to choose a selection that best matches your tastes and budget. You may hire a licensed bartender or arrange for a bartender through Event Savvy or another caterer. Bottled beer only; no kegs.

Depending on the caterer you choose and the details of your event, we may add charges of up to $300-$500 to have a manager on-site for the event and other items.


If you should decide to book the event center, a non-refundable deposit of 50% would be due to reserve the date and the balance would be due 90 days in advance of your reception, also non-refundable. We also require a $500 deposit for damages which is returned within 30 days of your event if no excessive damages are incurred. Lastly, we require you to have a $1,000,000 general liability policy and name the Douglas Beach House LLC as additional insured. Most home insurance policies include this or many insurance companies that offer wedding insurance offer this relatively inexpensive insurance.

Vacation rentals on-site

We have two vacation rentals on-site with 180-degree ocean views one with 3 bedrooms and one with 2 bedrooms. You can see the rentals here and We are glad to discuss pricing if you come for a tour for your event.
