We were the first to dream up a commerically built oceanfront Cottage.
As the number of rental homes available for weddings dwindles on the coast, we felt the need to preserve these intimate beach receptions. So we built an event venue! Celebration Cottage looks like a home on the outside but parties like a ballroom from within. We have a bridal suite for getting ready, a dining room dripping with chandeliers from our 19 foot ceiling and a HUGE oceanfront deck to dance and toast on! Celebration Cottage sits on 3 lots of oceanfront property. On the left of the cottage there is an undeveloped space for parking or a HUGE tent. The cottage is built on the second space and on the third is our tiled palm garden. We also have one of the only 3 private beach accesses in town with a gazebo to get the most amazing photos of the Oceana Pier and the waves.
There are no bedrooms in this house! I like to tell everyone that we are a zero bedroom, six bath. But, really we are the only commercially built beach house that I know of. The Cottage is fully ADA accessable including elevator, ramps and shower. We have a fully commercial kitchen so everything is cooked on site, not toted from place to place before it gets to you. Celebration Cottage was BUILT for events. This makes the experice of planning your event with us a very stress free and enjoyable one.
how many guests can the cottage accomidate?
We are comfortable with events with up to 250 guests in attendance. We do have a 50 guest minimum for a Saturday Wedding in season.
Chris and Paige were married in October 2016 and at around 185 guests, they hired a big band and created a night that they will always treasure. Their wedding video is view-able on our website.
