Heated Pool at Southpoint Condo
While your on vacation and staying at theCondo, you may want to get away from the salty ocean and into a heated freshwater pool to cool off!
theCondo has access to a community pool shared only by those living and staying at Southpoint Condominium.
The pool is heated year round! It uses heat pumps to keep its temperature at ~84 degrees. That said, during the cold winter days, the heat pumps struggle to keep it at 84 degrees but rest assured, they’re working hard to keep it as warm as possible. ))
Because the pool is heated, its feels great to get some aqua aerobics done in the morning before the things get busy; Warm and easy on the joints while still giving your muscles a workout.
The pool has a lift and stairs so that anyone with a disability can easily get in and refresh.
The lift is an ADA compliant lift that sits on the west side of the pool…the shallow end of which is 3’ deep.
If you need help getting in or out for whatever reason, sit on the lift and let it do the work!
On that same of the pool, the shallow end, there are corner stairs that lead into the pool…one easy step at a time.
More Southpoint Pool Details
The heated pool has 40,000 gallons of aqua blue water and is surrounded with pavers and pool chairs that recline into the full prone position.
The pool is kept clean with liquid chlorine that is automatically pumped in to keep the pH balance just right.
At night, you’ll be surrounded with LED lighting which creates a fun, creative ambience to close the night out.
The shallow end of the pool is 3 feet deep while on the deep end is 8 feet deep.
The deep end also has a ladder for use to get into or out of the pool.
The pool is situated on the south side of the building which allows some part of the pool to be in the sun most of the day. Most pools in the area are ocean side which no doubt is nice but, they lose the sun in the afternoon because the structure (building, house) blocks the sun’s rays.
Towels and Shower?
There are no towels at the pool available to be sure to bring your own.
The shower is not in the pool area but just a hop and skip towards the beach, you’ll find an outdoor shower you can use to wash off the chlorine or, and we hope you do, rinse off any sand or body nastiness before jumping in. (see image)
The outdoor shower is located to the right just before the stairs leading to the beach.
