10 Best Pool Houses

By Jennifer Berke

Once summer has arrived full force in Austin, we don’t have much of a choice but to spend the majority of our time outside swimming. Be it at a natural swimming hole or a private pool, it’s an absolutely vital part of any summer get-together. That said, when I think of the ultimate in poolside lounging, nothing quite tops the luxuriousness of a lavish pool house. From Grecian to colonial, these dreamy bungalows make it possible to host a pool party without ever having to set a damp foot in the house, and provide a perfectly shaded space for friends and family to beat the heat. So in honor of the season (and our dreams of glamorous poolside lounging), we thought it fitting to round up ten of our absolute favorite pool houses. Click through, and let us know which looks most heavenly to you!
