Adding a pool to an existing home can be quite a challenge. Fitting it in a confined space and incorporating all the details the homeowner dreamed - but - that's what we do at Nautilus Pools. We LOVE challenges!

It's Getting Hot!
Time to Build Your Pool...

There's still time to have a pool built before the hot weather hits in full force. Don't worry about if you have enough room. Since all our pools are custom, we'll come up with a plan that will take full advantage of your space and bring a little bit of Paradise to your backyard!


I love the challenge of designing a pool that will fulfill your dreams - and maybe even offer a few ideas that you never thought about.


Check out our website and view the photos of all the pools we've designed over our 26 years in Charlotte County. Each is specifically designed for the particular site...and that particular homeowner.


Give us a call, and I'd be happy to discuss all the options with you. But make it quick...it's getting really hot out there!

Featured Pool
New Pool - Existing Home
View from the spa end.

Adding a pool to an existing home can be quite a challenge. Getting around (and in between) established plantings and buildings, and fitting it in a confined space and incorporating all the details the homeowner dreamed about can be difficult. BUT...that's what we love to do!


This new pool has a walk-in shallow sun-ledge (great for lounge chairs) a waterfall, spa and a swim up tabletop retreat area. The faux stone coping compliments the paver deck and Pebbletec interior while giving a rustic natural look to the shape of the pool.

Would You Love to Have a
Fire Bowl
But Don't Want Propane?
 Fire Effects Water Bowl
Available in a variety of finishes, this new water bowl sits on a pedestal or base and when turned "on" looks like a fire bowl...with no propane, no tanks, and no gas. How can this be?
Led lights, combined with the metallic composite finish, create the fabulous faux fire!
