Pool-Laden Properties

When it comes to vacations, nothing spells relaxation and fulfillment quite like a private pool where you don't have to fight anyone for a lounge chair or share bathrooms and changing rooms with the masses. To that end, we've rounded up vacation homes (including a limited-time offer from a two-time Olympian) across the country with swimming pools and outdoor spaces that rival the wow factor of the homes themselves. If you're looking to indulge a bit this summer, one of these properties should fit the bill.


Prices and availability are subject to change.
