Residents

  1. I OWN PROPERTY IN THE BARRACKS DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE COVE AT BEARX ?

    Through an agreement with the HOA, BearX will offer two Special Access memberships to The Cove for each front door in The Barracks for so long as you own the property. Additionally, each front door will also receive annual Special Access memberships for each bedroom in the property that can be registered to Residents of the property.

  2. I OWN MULTIPLE INVESTMENT PROPERTIES IN THE BARRACKS, DO I HAVE MULTIPLE MEMBERSHIPS?

    Yes. You will still receive two spots per front door as above that you may designate to your family or friends during the annual registration period. Annual Special Access memberships for Residents will still be provided on a per bedroom basis for each property.

  3. HOW DO I REGISTER MY SPECIAL ACCESS MEMBERSHIP?

    Owners will complete the initial registration process online and will be completed upon their initial check-in at BearX.

  4. HOW LONG DOES MY SPECIAL ACCESS MEMBERSHIP LAST?

    Through the agreement between the HOA and BearX, Membership privileges follow ownership of each front door and when a home is sold, those privileges will pass to the new owner. Former owners will be able to purchase memberships at the same rates offered to the public for access to The Cove.

  5. HOW DO I REGESTER MY RESIDENTS FOR THEIR MEMBERSHIPS?

    For owners that are clients of The Barracks Management Group, those tenants will be registered automatically each year. Resident memberships will follow the academic calendar and will need to be registered by the property owner during open registration. If tenants are not registered during this period, they will be denied access to The Cove and an administrative fee will be assessed to the property owner. No fees will be assessed to owners if tenants are registered annually during open registration which will last approximately two weeks in August.
