FAQ’s

What do I need to do to use the Cabana?

Reserve the cabana for a child’s birthday party, small gathering of friends, or a pool party. Whatever your excuse to party is, it’s really simple to reserve the space. Just contact the property manager, Tom Gish Jr. at (425) 339-1160 or tgish@portgardnermgmt.com to check for availability.

The kitchenette includes some utensils, mini-refrigerator, microwave, and sink.

Seating includes bar-stools up to the eat-in kitchenette bar.  Small dining table fits four but the dining space would accommodate eight to ten easily. Just add another card table and folding chairs and throw a tablecloth over it and no one will know it’s not a formal long dining table. The living room area includes comfortable couch and two chairs for a maximum seating of five near the fireplace.

Rates (non-refundable): $15 for 4 hours
Cleaning & Damage Deposit (refundable post inspection): $50

Bring cleaning supplies as these are not furnished but please  clean up after the use of the space if you want the deposit back.

A  board member, who has keys to the clubhouse, must be coordinated to let you in and do the post party walk-through which can be difficult when we all have jobs and some do not reside on campus. Overall, your communication for the event should be with property manager, Tom Gish Jr. at (425) 339-1160 or tgish@portgardnermgmt.com.

What makes for a healthy Home Owners Association (HOA)?

  • Annual meetings that a majority of owners in attendance.
  • Owners who do not serve on the Board, support the Board, and serve the condo community as needed.
  • Homeowners pay their monthly dues and special assessments on time to the HOA. These assessments exist to benefit you and your entire HOA and community.  If they are not paid or delinquent, something will suffer as a result.
  • Understand that the HOA is an entity consisting of many volunteer owners and exists for the benefit of the whole. Sometimes our own desires may not be in the best interests of the entire homeowner community. Flexibility and understanding are important considerations.
