When I lived there, the deal was, you had to rent the second floor or the third floor, but the first floor could never be rented, it is for residents and boat well renters all the time. So any of those people can use the grills and patio at any time. So technically no one has to rent it since no one even used the upstairs areas. The whole party was in the common areas. I don't live there now, but I can't imagine the rules have changed.
