With a gorgeous pool, unobstructed water views, and fun décor including a lighthouse, it's hard to imagine that Melissa Gorga's patio at her Jersey Shore vacation home could get any more stunning. However, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member and her husband, Joe Gorga, recently teamed up to create an incredible new addition to the outdoor space: a chic pool house.
"Joe built this. You guys know we do construction, so this is what we do," Melissa said in an Instagram Story video. "I designed it all. So cute."
"This is our little pool house," she said as she gave a quick tour of the addition, which has its own bathroom and a fully-stocked bar area featuring a margarita machine and a fun sign indicating whether the "bar" is open or closed.
"I would say the view from the bar is probably the best view," Melissa said as she showcased the pool and fire pit on the patio, which overlooks the Barnegat Bay. "It's just so gorgeous."
While the pool house has ample seating both inside and around the exterior, Melissa noted that the seating surrounding the fire pit is "where we feel like we're in Santorini."
The couple clearly works well together when it comes to creating their dream spaces, including their Montville mansion that they recently put back on the market for $2.9 million. "My Re Done home,” Melissa wrote in a post announcing the news. “[Joe] & I built this beauty from the ground up. You should be so lucky to live in it.”
As the family has been spending more time at their vacation home in recent months, they have been hosting friends, celebrating special moments, and taking in their incredible round-the-clock views. As Melissa explained: "the sunrise is as pretty as the sunset at the Jersey shore."
