Pirates are not just for Halloween in this household!Halloween is well on its way and there is no doubt that we will see many individuals dressed up like pirates. In fact, dressing up like a pirate had become exponentially more popular since Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean came out in theaters sparking a whole new love for pirate themed culture. This pool owner took their love of pirates and pirate culture to a new level, creating a pirate grotto that you just have to see to believe!
A Pirate ParadiseIf you thought swim up bars were rare luxury attractions that you only get to enjoy during spring break or on a vacation to the Bahamas, then you might be hanging out with the wrong crowd. Swim up bars have been making their way into the backyards of many residential swimming pools for years. In fact, you’ll find swim up bars on residential properties today that rival some of the most luxurious swim up bars worldwide. This one (seen below) does NOT disappoint!

Inside this grotto the rope and log steps lead to a ledge where one can jump through the waterfall into the pool, and just beyond is the swim up bar and grotto kitchen with the pirate chandelier adds to the theme. Hidden tunnels lead to the restroom and lazy river.
Check out the swim up bar and kitchen inside the grotto – the pirate chandelier and hand painted faux jail cell that holds all the automation. The grotto is hidden behind an impressive waterfall. If you want to add a tropical or rain forest feel to your swim up bar then you should consider a waterfall. Waterfalls are some of the most common pool water features in pool projects, and for good reason!
