Rehoboth Beach, DE

Secluded Cocktail Pool

The Challenge

This client called Ashton Pools by Design in search of a team willing to take on the challenge of converting a small backyard into a completely secluded sanctuary, which blocks the boisterous sounds of the main street heading into downtown Rehoboth Beach. Lucky for them, we were fully equipped to achieve their vision. The homeowner wanted an outdoor space that was easily maintained. This is their home away from home, so one of the features they needed was to be able to heat their pool and turn on any lights or water feature remotely. This way it was ready for them to relax in on a summer night by the touch of a button.

Secluded Cocktail Pool

The Results

Real Project: Cocktail Pool – in town Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

This project features the team taking on the challenge of converting a small back yard into a completely secluded sanctuary that blocks the boisterous sounds of the main street heading into downtown Rehoboth Beach.  The homeowners’ wanted an outdoor space that’s easily maintained.  As their home away from home, it is very important to be able to heat their pool and turn on any lights or water feature remotely, so it is ready for them to relax in on a summer night.

Pool Area

Nestled in the backyard is the 16 ft Harmony in Sapphire Blue by Leisure Pools USA. The depth of this pool ranges from 4’3” in the shallow end to 5’2” in the deep end, creating the ultimate lounge and entertaining area for the space allotted.


With the installation of Hayward total automation, the homeowner has the ability to control pool operations from their phone. The app allows you to easily turn on lights, water feature, pool heater and more simply from your mobile device.  Automation is extremely important for the homeowners so they can easily turn the heat to their pool on a Friday afternoon as they are on the way to the beach for a relaxing weekend.

Water Feature

Faced with Alderwood Stacked Stone Veneer by Eldorado Stone, this linear water feature is 6 ft long by 1.5 ft high and has two 24 inch sheer descent waterfalls that produce a clear arc of water flowing into the pool. The intent for this water feature was to drown out any noise coming from the busy main street leading into downtown Rehoboth Beach.

     

Travertine pavers creates a timeless look and keeps the ground easy to maintain without any fuss or hassle.  This is a summer/weekend home for the homeowners – having an easy-to-maintain yard is very important to them.

Travertine is a natural stone that is cool to the touch no matter the temperature outside. Using this around the pool area allows the homeowner to walk freely around the yard, without worrying about burning their feet.  There are a few different potted plants, but no grass or sod area to worry about.  This keeps their backyard area clean and free from any dirt or mud.
