Cool Pools

Saltwater pool is built right into the stone edge of the coast of Maine.

Shore Inspired

Why We Love It: This unique tidal saltwater pool in Cape Neddick, Maine, embraces natural features for a seamless connection to the sea.

Pure blue water runs to the edge of this infinity pool with amazing views of the tropical hued home to the left and the ocean directly in front.

Modern Yet Timeless

Why We Love It: Crystal-blue water and Popsicle-color walls―enough said. The vibrant setting is simple, sophisticated, and fun.

A pink stucco poolhouse with pale blue shutters offers an island feel to this pool retreate on the island of Mustique.

Privacy, Please

Why We Love It: This small pool on the island of Mustique in the Grenadines gives renters a quiet spot to catch some rays, with the bonus of shade under the sturdy pergola. Dense tropical landscaping surrounds the retreat and offers a steady supply of oranges and figs.

This narrow lap pool is built right up close to the home's back doors to accomodate the small backyard space.

A Perfect Fit

Why We Love It: These homeowners had to get creative when adding a pool to their small backyard, so they joined it to the house’s foundation. Folding doors in the family room slide back to reveal the water’s edge.

Two stone pool houses with arched white roofs flank each side of this Connecticut pool built close to the ocean.

New England Luxury

Why We Love It: This Connecticut pool sits so close to the sea’s edge that you can cast a rod from one of the lounge chairs. It sports two poolside structures with ornamental roofs reminiscent of graceful, white sails.

Infinity pool built up with stacked tiers from the beach offers spectacular views of the coast line from its waters.

Clear View

Why We Love It: A wavy shape nods to the nearby surf, and the infinity edge gives waders a seamless view out to sea―you can’t get much closer to beachfront than this!

This is my favorite design!!!!
