The clubhouse is open for use during business hours. The tennis courts are all accessed by key- this key is available for a $5 deposit at the management office in the clubhouse. The pools, sauna and gym require the use of an electronic access key. Each resident may obtain a key specifically assigned to them and registered with their photo on file. There is a $10 deposit for this key and a $25 replacement fee if lost. All key deposits are payable by check only. Guests generally have the same rights and responsibilities as homeowners. Guests must be accompanied by their hosts when they use the pools, spas, gym, saunas or tennis courts. Residents, whether owners or renters, are responsible for educating their guests about Nepenthe’s rules.


The clubhouse and cabanas are no-smoking areas. We depend on each other to show consideration for our neighbors. If your neighbor’s smoking bothers you, or if he complains about your smoking, try to work out an amicable solution. Nepenthe does not have the authority or resources to resolve all personal disputes.
