These four dream homes are stuffed with luxurious features, from fireplaces to tennis courts to an indoor ice-rink. But when it comes to throwing the most mind-blowing summer parties, one feature matters most of all: the pool. Scroll down and you'll see that an infinity pool is just the beginning.

1. More waterfalls than you really need in New Hope, $1,325,000

This French-style five-bedroom home has a two-acre backyard with a heated spa, tennis courts, and a pool with four – count 'em, four – waterfalls. Also, the description says that the home's basement, which includes a surround-sound theater room, is "award winning." Who knew that basements even got awards?

What's better than a pool party at the Jersey Shore? A jet ski pool party at the Jersey Shore. This bayfront mansion has an enormous fenced deck with an in-ground heated pool AND a floating dock with room for three jet skis. Someone needs to film a music video here immediately.

This five-bedroom, six-bath mansion in Wayne has a gorgeous flagstone saltwater pool with an automatic cover as a high-tech twist, and a separate hot tub as well. But what really makes this home awesome is that it has an ICE RINK! I mean, what is an ice rink except a shallow, frozen pool, am I right? There's also a game room, so that you can entertain yourself with a game of pool when you’re done with the pool.
