I’ve always wanted to have my own pool and last year I finally made that dream a reality! I moved into my beach cottage and knew it wouldn’t be complete without a backyard oasis that included a POOL.
Here are some of my favorite things to have pool-side with me to enjoy the a nice sunny day!

Floats & Rafts
Pools are made for floating around & having some adult beverages! I’ve gone through quite a few different styles of tubes, rafts, and floaties for my pool. Some of them tend to rip easily or are not comfortable! I wanted to share the ones that have stuck around, are durable, and you can be comfortable in for hours!
The Monterey Hammock is great if you’re having friends over and you want to float around while chatting! A few of you can be in a circle sitting up with a drink in your hand.
The Delux Hammock style is even bigger and comes in more styles.
Your Dog Should Enjoy The Pool Too
Don’t forget about your dog! If you have a dog anything like mine, they will love floating with you in the pool on a hot summer day.
Another style of float for your pup, a little softer and solid so their nails don’t get caught! Ride on pool raft for your dog – Look how happy this cutie looks!
Pool Volley Ball is so fun! I like this Intex Pool Volleyball set because it’s inflatable and you store it away in a small space if needed.
Any wireless Bluetooth speaker will work but these ION Solar Stone’s blend in with your landscape! You can scatter them throughout your backyard to have surround sound!
I didn’t know these existed until I got my own pool. These are so key when you’re having a pool day – you can keep your drink by your side without having to hold it or put it on the side of the pool – how cool?! I have a variety pack of drink floaties. You can bring them to the beach or on a boat too! I love also bringing them to the sandbar at Peanut Island too.
