Are you thinking about buying or selling a home or property in the Inglewood Plat? Here are some answers to common questions asked about IBC.
What is the beach address?
There is no physical address. The parking area is off of E Lake Sammamish Pkwy NE, just north of NE Inglewood Hill Rd, on the west side of the street right by Kokomo Place. Follow the path from the parking lot to the trail, go south (left) on the trail, and walk until you see the fence with the Inglewood Beach Club sign above the gated entrance. We have various colorful chairs at our beach. During trail construction, a temporary access path has been made available to our members.
Is this an HOA?
No. IBC is an optional club membership. Residents are not required to pay dues, but access to the beach is not permitted without current club membership, and per bylaws, only paying members have a stake in IBC property if needing to be sold. We do suggest coordinating with our board to get new homeowner's signed up as part of the sale process by registering their information in our membership application upon closing so they do not miss any important info emailed to members.
When is access granted?
Membership is generally processed weekly upon dues payment and allows access for the current calendar year. Annual recurring dues are processed on May 1st each year. Access to IBC is only permitted to members in good standing which are publicly detailed on our Current Members page. Our board is volunteer-based and we do not update the list immediately upon payment - please plan to join in advance so you are authorized at the beach.
Upon payment, members receive access to their Member Portal to manage their membership subscription, contact information, and payments.
What are the dues?
New members pay $375 new member fee which includes the first year of dues. Returning members pay $75 annually however if there is a lapse in annual payment, the following year will incur the previous year's lapsed dues up to the new member amount. Register online at inglewoodbeachclub.org/membership. We do not offer prorated dues. Dues are renewed on May 1st of each year.
Which homes are included?
What are the rules we need to abide by when using the beach?
Please check out our Rules page with the full details of IBC use.
How many guests can members bring?
Members are allowed to bring up to 5 guests (including children) without prior approval at any time. For more than 5 guests, the IBC Board will approve each request emailed to [email protected] as space allows. We ask that you email us 1 month prior to the event (with no more than 20 people attending including children) for approval so we can make sure there aren't any other large groups already scheduled to be at the beach, especially during these times. Please be respectful while other members are present. If an event is approved you must be able to present the approval email or show the scheduled event on the IBC calendar to anyone who asks. Also please be sure all guests are following the rules, clean up your area and pack out any trash. Disrespect of our members and property may result in removal.
Is there moorage and boat storage available?
We do not have moorage.
Can we leave or store things at the beach?
No. We do not have any beach storage at this time. Please be sure to pack in and pack out. Any items left on the beach will be disposed of. Any fees incurred with removal may be billed to the owner.
Can I get access to take photos for a real estate listing?
If the current owners are members, absolutely. However, we do not allow non-members to access the beach without a current member accompanying them. You may inquire about photos for a fee.
Is access transferrable?
Access and membership is not transferrable. However, sellers are encouraged to pre-pay the new membership fee (valid for the current calendar year) for the new buyer to add value to the listing and get them immediately involved. The new home owner's email will be required for pre-payment of registration. New residents will pay the new membership fee of $375.
Are there guest passes available?
Guest passes are available annually with a current paid member sponsoring them. Guest pass dues are $230 and are not guaranteed annually. Only a limited number of guest passes are available each year and are issued on a first-come, first-served basis, pending member sponsorship and IBC Board approval.
What’s your refund policy?
We do not provide refunds.
