Pick a favorite from 13 secluded swimming pools

Posted July 5, 2013

Regardless of size, swimming pools are synonymous with luxury. Being able to cool off or take a sun tan in the privacy of one's own back yard is a sure sign of living the good life. A secluded swimming pool is an amenity that few have, but many yearn for.

And a pool is not just a pool, when it comes to home improvement. A pool is also a deck and landscaping, and maybe even a pool house. It is all of the components that I just mentioned which make pools so luxurious.

These 13 secluded swimming pools are downright dreamy. If you could lounge by one of these, which one would you choose?

This pool is brilliant. It boasts a bright white stone patio and custom balustrades, as well as custom brick accents. Perfectly manicured landscape plants provide necessary shade and privacy. This pool is by ARNOLD Masonry and Concrete, a concrete and masonry company serving the Atlanta area.

A small backyard goes totally luxe with a lap pool and lush landscaping.

This infinity pool brings relaxation to a new level.

Here is another meditative infinity pool. This one is in British Columbia.

I love the concrete pavers on the deck of this gorgeous free-form back yard pool.

This swimming pool is part of a villa in Tuscany. Swoon!

An infinity lap pool peeks out between the patio and the ocean at a beach house near Koko Head, Hawaii.

If the ocean is too choppy for swimming by your private tropical villa, then a swim in the private pool is in order.

If you have ever wondered what the "infinity" side of an infinity pool looks like, here is a shot of one at Jeda Villa Bali.

The waterfront of Long Island looks so lovely from the private ocean-side pool and hot tub of an estate. Can you feel the ocean breeze in your hair?

The amazing thing about this pool is that a handyman literally dug it up and transplanted it to a new yard. Now you know that it is possible to dig up and transplant an in-ground pool.

Yes, Jeeves, I would love another martini. Extra olives, and a bowl of Marcona almonds on the side please.

Palm trees + a perfect deck and pool house make this lovely swimming spot a true winner.
