Luxury Landscape Designer & Custom Swimming Pool Contractor

Artisan Home Resorts goes beyond pool installation to bring a luxury resort feel to your property. We create utterly unique, custom landscape designs that incorporate pools, spas, kitchens and more, to transform your outdoor space into a private resort.
We are landscape designers who are also pool contractors. We begin every project with a unique plan so that every inground pool, water feature, spa or landscaping design will be original and carefully constructed to reflect your lifestyle. We incorporate your wants into a home resort that will be the ultimate year-round retreat.
Our pool installation expertise includes building pools on a hill, especially for home owners in Los Altos Hills, Atherton, Saratoga and the Bay Area. We are experienced with the unique ground and soil conditions facing pool builders in Nashville, Franklin, and Brentwood, TN.
  • "Artisan Home Resorts is in a class all their own. Rick Pendleton, the creative genius behind the company, has a unique talent for transforming your outdoor space into an extraordinary experience. It's magical."
  • "I was ready to completely redo my pool when I found Artisan. I loved the Angel Falls and San Jose Hangout projects and I'm thinking about a lazy river-style for my pool design project. The website and the reviews convinced me to call."
    Robert J., East Bay Area
  • "Working with Rick at Artisan Home Resorts was a great experience. Very fair and easy to work with. We love our Artisan pool."
    Mark D., Mountain View
  • "We wanted a pool to transform our backyard but with somewhat extreme demands. We found many people who could deliver one or two of those goals but not all three. Rick and his team created the backyard experience for us that definitely delivered. It created a backyard that is a dream to play in. Artisan designed, built and maintained this thru all the challenges one might face in pulling something like this off. Thanks Artisan Home Resorts Team!"
    Dwight, Saratoga
  • “Artisan Home Resorts is not just the name of the company but defines what the company does. Rick and his team are craftsmen, putting the art and emotion into the home and yard and creating a resort-like atmosphere for his clients.”
    John Anderson, Western Regional Manager, Paramount In-Floor Cleaning Systems

Our Portfolio

Angel Falls

Rick derived inspiration for this project from trips taken as a boy to Angel Falls in the Sierra Nevada mountains. We designed this massive waterfall to be at home in the picturesque natural backdrop of rolling hills and endless sky. Nestled in the rocks are three upper pools and a custom-honed rock waterslide. The main pool has a 12 ft deep underwater canyon with a vortex current powered by two 7.5 horsepower pumps. The homeowners enjoy entertaining family and friends at their home resort. They also relish watching local wildlife cool off in the pool’s gentle beach entry.

Roman Arches

The interior of this home has a Classical design with arches and columns. Our clients wanted us to create this feel outside as well. The theme was carried to the exterior space with grand arches as the centerpiece of the design. We paid special attention to scale, ensuring that the arches were not dwarfed by the expanse of the 10-acre foothill estate. Fountain Supply Company, of Santa Clarita, CA, designed the pump system, which transformed the arches into magnificent cascading fountains. This focal point was designed to be enjoyed just as much from inside the home as outside.

Elegant Winery Estate

This client commissioned Artisan Home Resorts to design an estate that would be a legacy for his family: timeless and original while embracing the existing vineyards that are so special to him. He also wanted a space to use for large scale entertaining. The hidden gem in this design is the lower level “man cave” fire pit leading to a wine cellar built into the wall of rock.

Italian Villa

This couple vacations in Italy and wanted to experience that in their landscape design. Using the Mediterranean architecture and authentic aged features of their home as a launching point, we gave them a home resort that transports them back to Italy. The innovative design also includes elements incorporated specifically with their grandchildren in mind. We custom designed a wood-fired pizza oven so grandpa can make pizza, and the swimming pool has a thermal ledge so grandma can relax in the water while watching the kids swim.

Custom Pool & Spa Design & Installation

Artisan Home Resorts is a luxury pool design & construction company focused on transforming your home into a year-round resort style retreat.

Custom Landscape Design & Installation

Our design team is staffed by skilled artisans who produce exclusive, highly personalized layouts and features to match their clients’ precise specifications and unique aesthetics. We can truly transform your property into a personal resort.

3D Rendering

We realize it can be difficult to visualize your completed outdoor design when you only have 2-dimensional plans. What will you see when looking out your living room window? How will the scale of the proposed water feature relate to the existing trees that you love so much? We are pleased to offer a solution to this dilemma: 3-dimensional, realistic looking renderings!

Facilitation of Engineering & Permits

We will put our experience to work for you and have your engineering, plans, and paperwork ready and waiting to submit for permits, taking up to eight weeks off the time it takes to actually build your project. Best of all, Artisan Home Resorts can do all of this before your contractor is even hired, depositing time back into your bank.
