The owners built the pool before they built their house. Keeping their six children in mind, they wanted a place for them to hang out and have fun while everything else was under construction.
It took about nine truckloads and nearly 180 tons of natural boulders to create the cascading rocky landscape.
The ficus tree, with its mossy yet sturdy branches, was craned in and chosen specifically to hold the rope swing.
The pool has an underwater swim-through grotto.
