Towering palm trees and mountainous backdrops hardly distract from a pool-icious paradise and its funhouse of extravagant features. This oasis dazzles in the center of Los Compadres Equestrian Estates, surrounded by 1.5 miles of French-graveled walking paths. Seven semi-boulders from Whitewater Rock & Supply establish the $300,000 pool’s centerpiece that triples as a massive slide, a rock-climbing wall, and a grotto veiled by a waterfall trickling near the hot tub. There is a beach entry, several tanning ledges, and a swim-up bar attached to a sunken gourmet kitchen. If you don’t want to eat in the outdoor living pavilion, there is plenty of room at the formal dining room table floating in the east end of the pool.
