Whether it’s used to cool off on a lazy summer afternoon or to warm up on a chilly winter evening, this dual-zone plunge pool and spa keeps everyone happy at this family’s Mornington Peninsula holiday retreat
To complete their Mornington Peninsula holiday house, this family of six envisaged a medium-size, low-maintenance pool in order to truly relax, away from their busy lives in Melbourne. “Our holiday house is near the beach and we wanted the spa and pool to be a relaxing location away from the sandy beaches — somewhere to just chill out with a cold drink and a magazine,” says homeowner Paul. “I travel every month for work and because this property is our holiday home, we needed something low maintenance and not too big.”
For their 1100sqm rectangular block, nestled among trees, the family opted for a dual-zone pool-and-spa combination — the rectangular Sabre Plunge Pool and Smooth Edge Grande Spa, both in Ocean Wave, from Endless Spas and Pools.
“Our family had been looking for a while before deciding to go with Endless Spas and Pools. We found the showroom comprehensive, especially the real-life-designed outdoor area inside, which really helped us visualise what we could create. We were able to get some great ideas from this, including paving, water features and landscaping,” says Paul.
“Design was a journey; we looked through Poolside magazine and other publications to get ideas and inspiration based on our growing family and what each of us wanted. We went for the dual-zone pool with separate spa as the pool gets little use in winter, while the spa is used every day by adults and kids, especially during winter when we are at our holiday house enjoying a break from city life.
“The dual zone was the perfect option and also has hard covers for both the spa and pool, which is ideal and keeps maintenance to a minimum. These covers keep the pool and spa spotless all year round. The Viron Connect Wi-Fi app allows me to check water quality, adjust pump cycles and even heat or cool the spa and pool from anywhere in the world — which I highly recommend. Also, the Viron e-Quilibrium chlorinating sensor kit takes care of self-monitoring the chemical levels and adjusts accordingly as needed, so I really have little maintenance to worry about and more time to enjoy the pool and spa.
“Now everyone, including our large extended family, loves coming down for a barbecue and a swim or a relaxing twilight spa.”
