We just arrived back from sunny Aruba and were so fortunate to have missed the snow here in Charlotte, NC this week! Truth be told it was a vacation but it’s amazing the ideas you can attain while vacationing. We were staying at the Marriott Stellaris Resort and Casino in Aruba on Palm Beach and they have a beautiful pool. We were one of four couples that went to have a relaxing week and it really was a bonus that we missed NOTHING in Charlotte due to the inclement weather.
One of the fun features of the Aruba Marriott is they have a swim up bar and pool volleyball net. Several of the days we participated in the volleyball to be proceeded by swimming up to the bar for refreshments. Two of the couples we were with happen to own pools in south Charlotte and an idea hit me! What about creating a swim up bar in their own personal pool? How fun would that be for entertaining? We are all in our 50’s with kids that have either moved out and enjoy entertaining friends.
Archadeck of Charlotte has been designing and building outdoor living spaces for over 26 years and this would be the perfect compliment to many of the projects we already build! My thinking is that while we are hired to surround the pool with everything from outdoor fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, and shade structures, why not offer a swim up bar feature?
The ideas began to grow while were there this past week. While we felt keeping it simple and affordable were going to be important attributes, design is was going to be key. After a tough week contemplating this, I believe we have come up with great ideas to offer a couple of different swim up bar options!
