Watch: Swim spa in a small space

The backyard oasis above was designed and built by Matt Cowdell, a Spa World customer and Mental Health Nurse from Perth, Australia.

In this article, we share Matt's story of how he single-handedly turned a pile of dirt in his backyard to a Bali-inspired haven that would rival any tropical retreat.

One man's labour of love

For Perth couple Matt and Amy, there really is no place like home.

The busy health professionals live in Scarborough, Western Australia. She’s a dental nurse, and he’s a mental health nurse in the police crisis unit.

“It’s good work. I love it”, Matt says of his mental health role. “It feels good to be making a difference for people, but it can be tough – we deal with quite a lot of distressing stuff.”

At the end of a long, stressful day, the couple loves nothing more than relaxing by their swim spa in the backyard oasis Matt built by hand.
