REOPENING OF CLUBHOUSE AND OFFICE
As you are likely aware, the state of California phased out the vast majority of executive actions put in place since March 2020, and a new public health order
was issued on June 15, 2021.
Following review of the latest order and careful consideration, the Board of Directors has voted to fully reopen the Grove House Office and resume rentals of the Great Room Clubhouse.
Appointments will no longer be needed to visit the Grove House staff during office hours from Monday through Friday, 8 am – 5 pm, and on Saturday & Sundays, 10am – 5 pm. The doors are open to walk-ins; however, appointments are still encouraged for matters pertaining to architectural modifications or anything sensitive or private in nature.
The Great Room Clubhouse will be open for rentals beginning Saturday, June 26th, and reservations are now being accepted and processed. Information and the application for rentals can be found here
for those interested in making a reservation.
Please note, anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days or anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, cough, fatigue, loss of taste, loss of smell, etc) may not enter the Office or Clubhouse. Face coverings are still required to be worn by unvaccinated (or partially-vaccinated) individuals in any indoor portions of the Community’s Common Areas. If entering the Office or Clubhouse without a mask, you are attesting that you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding during these challenging times. After over a year of navigating this pandemic together, we are incredibly pleased to restore full amenity access just in time for summer.
JUNE YARD OF THE MONTH WINNER!
Each month, the Landscape Committee selects one home for the prestigious Yard of the Month award. The homes that are selected showcase curated plant palettes and beautifully-maintained landscaping that not only meet, but exceed, the community's standards.
The Landscape Committee would like to formally recognize Karim and Marzieh of 26 Water Lily as the winners for June's Yard of the Month Contest. Karim and Marzieh's home was selected due to its variety of plant material and the gorgeous pops of color produced by the red and white roses throughout the yard, which give the home a very fresh and welcoming appeal. Potted plant varieties line the front walkway attractively and add to the inviting nature of the home. The plant selection is aesthetically thoughtful as far as diversity, symmetry, elevation, and color, and as a bonus, it is also water efficient, as the owners are conscious of their water usage. It's unmistakable that much care has been put into the yard.
Stay tuned for our July winner, which will be announced the first week of the month!
UPDATES TO COVID-19 AMENITY AND FACILITY-USE RESTRICTIONS
The Board of Directors continues to evaluate the precautions being taken to mitigate potential COVID-19 infections within the community. In reviewing federal, state, and local guidelines and ordinances and the reduced infection rates in the county, the Board of Directors has implemented the following changes to amenity and facility usage:
- All pool area furniture has been restored to The Grove and Sweet Shade pool decks
- The pool showers have been restored for residents’ use
- The pools will no longer be closed from 1-2pm for the mid-day cleaning
- Residents may use the gas BBQs at the pool areas and the charcoal grills in the park areas
- The water fountains throughout the community have been restored
- Guests are now permitted to use the pool area; up to five (5) guests are permitted per household, per the Rules & Regulations.
The pool schedules at both The Grove and Sweet Shade pools continues to be as follows:
- 6:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Lap Swimming and Seniors Only

- 10:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. General Session
As a reminder, parties are still not permitted in Common Areas, and residents should continue following state and CDC guidelines as far as mask-wearing and hand-washing. At this time, the clubhouse is still closed, and reservations are not yet being accepted. Following the state’s planned reopening on June 15th, the Board of Directors will evaluate the latest guidance to determine whether or not additional changes will be made.
We thank everyone for their cooperation and understanding, as we balance both the safety of residents with the enjoyment of our community and its amenities.
