Poolside Entertainment Spaces

Whether it’s a classic open cabana, a self-contained pool house or an integrated alfresco pavilion, a poolside structure can add a touch of resort-style luxury to your outdoor entertaining space.

Cabanas and pool houses not only look amazing, they are functional and practical spaces that can provide storage for towels, pool toys and equipment. Some have a wet bar with sink/tap and fridge, the perfect place to prepare poolside cocktails, and others have their own bathroom/changeroom. A recent trend is to have an outdoor shower on the outside. Stylistic touches include comfortable day beds with beautiful cushions, rattan baskets to place used towels and lush tropical pot plants. 

Many contemporary-designed residences have fully integrated covered alfresco pavilions with outdoor kitchens and dining/lounge zones that serve both the pool and the interior living spaces – so they don’t need a separate pool house. Either way, a functional poolside entertainment space is always highly desirable in today’s property market, particularly as we head in to the summer months.

Marshall White currently has quite a ‘pool’ of properties for sale with fabulous entertainment spaces – just in time to host the perfect pool party.
