Taking The Plunge

With Perth's recent heatwave and our Summers getting hotter and sweatier I've been thinking more and more about a house with a swimming pool
Being able to dive into that cool blue water when the heat gets too much would be such a good feeling and entertaining outside poolside would be the perfect backdrop on a summer evening
Yes the decision is made - I want a swimming pool in my next house !
Do you have a swimming pool?
If not, how do you keep cool in Summer!

Pin It Now!


  1. Yes I do! A newcomer to the pool owner's club here - loving it so far, we have already gotten so much use out of it. Lots of people will tell you that a pool is 'not worth the hassle/money' but if like us you love to swim, then you'll never regret it :)

  2. OMG. That pool is divine!!!
    No pool here I'm afraid.
    Next house for sure ...

  3. We don't have a pool but since the week before Christmas, our neighbours have been away and told us to use the with our disgusting heatwave here, we've been in there nearly every day - on those stinking hot days we'd pop over in the morning to cool off (which wore out the girls for nap time which was a bonus) and then late arvo, we'd pop back across. It's been bliss. I don't think we'll ever get a pool though. Besides all that, it's been stays indoors in the air con for us!!

  4. POOL ENVY!!! That pool bar is amazing!

    We don't have a pool but a few friends do so I invite myself over most weekends ;) I also live 15 mins drive from the coast so I go down most weeknights and every weekend for sure. I don't deal with the heat very well!

    I think you have to have a pool, paddling pool or live near the coast here in Perth! Especially with all these 35+ days!

  5. I saw on the news yesterday that it has been so hot in some areas of Australia that they had to ADD colors to the temperature chart! Pink and purple. That's crazy lol. I don't think I could stand it.

    I grew up with a pool in my backyard. It was fantastic. I don't have a pool now =( They aren't very common here in Illinois. This summer was really hot though and I was wishing for one! To stay cool we stayed inside with the air conditioner and went to the water park a LOT. =)

  6. Every summer I find myself wishing I have a pool. They're so high maintenance and expensive to upkeep though.

  7. In our current house - no pool. But we are building so next house it is on the must have list. I use to have one as a child in the family home and loved it.
