Sometimes a sharp breeze or a passing rain storm may put a cloud over an otherwise great beach day, but for visitors who reserve an Outer Beaches Realty vacation home with a game room, a little inclement weather rarely puts a damper on the vacation fun.
Game rooms are available with all sizes of vacation rentals, from 3 bedroom cottages and condos to elite eight bedroom homes. With a range of fun diversions to keep everyone entertained, a game room often becomes a popular gathering spot for game days, family sports tournaments, or easy-going post beach gatherings. For your own personal sports bar or club house that's located right on the premises, consider renting a Hatteras Island vacation rental that features a game room for hours of off-the-beach entertainment.
A game room can include a number of amenities including game tables, entertainment centers, and even wet bars and kitchenettes.
In order to be designated as a game room, the area must have at least one gaming table, such as a pool table, foosball table, air hockey table, or bumper pool table. Every home is distinctive, and guests are advised to check the detailed descriptions for each rental that features a game room to find out what specific amenities are included.
A number of game rooms have separate "den areas" which feature comfy couches, chairs and a home entertainment system, perfect for curling up with a movie, or having all the loud members of your vacationing group congregated in one somewhat-segregated area to watch the big game.
Many rentals also feature wet bars or kitchenettes, which makes drink refills or quick snacks easily within reach. Because most game rooms are located on the first floor, a wet bar or kitchenette, (which typically has a refrigerator or mini-fridge, a microwave, and other appliances like an icemaker or dishwasher), can come in very handy for poolside drink runs, or loading up the beach coolers with ice before heading to the shore.
Regardless of what specific features are included with your favorite vacation rental's game room, everyone is sure to enjoy having a space that's reserved just for fun. After all, a little entertainment with the family is what a good beach vacation is all about.
The whole purpose of a family vacation is to get everyone in on the fun, and with a game room, there are plenty of activities and makeshift events that can include everybody in your crew.
Try holding a family pool, foosball or air hockey tournament with couples or family teams going head to head. The winning team can be treated to a round of margaritas, or a trip to the local ice cream shop for a sweet and delectable reward.
You can also hold family sports parties, which are especially entertaining if there are family members rooting for opposite teams. Don your best jersey, break out the poms poms, and get ready to root and cheer with the best of them during a favorite sporting event. (Just be sure to observe the Dare County noise ordinance, which doesn't allow loud noises on Hatteras Island after 11:00 p.m.)
Finally, a card table or small dining table can be the perfect locale for a family poker tournament. Keep your aces up your sleeves and enjoy a full night of snacking, laughing, and playing a few competitive rounds of cards.
Sometimes, an Outer Banks vacationer may find they need a little extra pool cue chalk or a fresh deck of cards, and Hatteras Island has an ample supply of local stores and shops that feature gaming supplies.
For board games, puzzles and cards, pop into a local beach store or gift shop, which can feature some island-themed games and decks to take home as an Outer Banks souvenir.
For extra pool chalk or a few new darts, try stopping by a local hardware store. The town of Avon features a large chain hardware store which carries a variety of game room supplies, from pool chalk to disposable coasters, that guests may need to replenish from time to time.
Regardless of whether you only retreat to the game room on rainy days, or stay up late every night challenging the other night owls to a pool tournament, a vacation rental with a game room is sure to add an extra layer of enjoyment to your Hatteras Island vacation.
With a number of properties to choose from that feature this amenity, in all villages and locations, Hatteras Island visitors will have no problem at all finding an Outer Beaches Realty vacation rental that has a game room, as well as the other beachy features and amenities they require for a perfect island vacation.
