Actual event venue bookings

co-ed baby shower

My daughter and her husband are expecting their first baby and we would like to have a cool event venue to host their baby shower. It would be an adult co-ed shower, so we were thinking potentially of having a food truck if that is a possibility and maybe even a DJ. Would love to find out if this date is available and if the food truck and DJ are also permissible. Looking forward to hearing from you.

leadership workshop for alumni office

I work for the alumni relations office, and we are looking to have a Leadership Workshop in order to choose our next board members and president for the Alumni Club (a volunteer-run organization). We are hoping to use your lovely home as a perfect location for this off-site/team building event. We will provide lunch for the group and facilitate the workshop and breakout sessions. The purpose is to have ice-breakers, a brainstorming session, and then a vote for the next leadership. We will end the day with a congratulatory cocktail.

29th birthday with outdoor patio games

I am a working film/TV executive, and I am looking to rent your space to host a party for my 29th birthday on my actual birthday. I mainly want to use the amazing outdoor space of this property for close friends, family, and colleagues to gather for a low-key night of patio games, music (some dancing too, hopefully), karaoke, and having a few drinks poolside. This event would only be for people that are 21+ and I expect people to come and go throughout the evening (so I don't anticipate 75 people to come and stay all at once). I take all of your house rules to heart (especially the no glass in or around the pool policy) and would treat your house with the utmost respect. I absolutely want a controlled party atmosphere and I am open to discussing any of the services you may want me to use for the evening. I look forward to chatting with you about the space for this party.
