Maxie Water Park 🏖️Seasonal Close/ Private Dog Pool In San Jose

Seasonal close in winter. We will reopen in Spring 2024. See you then! Welcome to Maxie pool for private water play time! First pet pool in the area. The pool solar is on automatically during the day time and the water temperature largely depends on the weather conditions. As the weather becomes cooler recently the water temperature decreases. For your reference, on October 28 the water temperature is around 65 degrees F/ 18 degrees C. Based on the dog owners' feedback, the water temperature in October is cold for people but dogs are still having fun. We don’t recommend people swimming in the pool in October. The pool is chlorinated and professionally cleaned weekly. We provide S/M/L size dog life jackets (1 jacket for each size) and some pool toys. 2 guests come free with the 1st dog. Any additional dog includes 1 additional guest at no extra charge. If you have extra guests coming, please select the correct number of additional guests in the EXTRAS. Extra guest is $12/person/hour for the play & swimming session. Total 6 guests max, thank you!

The host is not responsible for any liability. *Dog owner and guests are welcome to enter the pool to help and support your dog swimming, but please note NO BATHROOM is provided. As this is mainly the dog pool, dogs constantly bring oils/dust/dirt to the pool. We clean after each visit and the filter system is on but there is a limit to how much the filter system can handle. Generally, the water is clearer in weekdays compared to weekends. *This is a quiet neighborhood, please respect our neighbors so no screaming/yelling/loud music/pool parties. *Dogs must be leashed when entering and exiting the pool area, only off-leash your dog once the pool gate is locked. *The pool area is fenced.

My friend and I brought our two dogs and had a great time! The pool was a comfy temperature and clean but not overly chlorinated. Great host, had a water bowl out for the dogs, plenty of toys, and supplies. Thank you for hosting us!

We loved the pool! Adequate shade and amenities for doggies to enjoy. Very clean and well kept. They also make it easier for the visitors to also keep it clean.

This place is amazing. First time our dog swam in a pool and he was scared at first but had lots of fun. The place is clean and so nice. They had waters and sodas for an extra cost. (Still amazing) everything was so clean and picked up.

Loved this spot. Host provides dog life vests and toys for the water, as well as dog treats and water bottles for humans. There is an area to sit with ample shade so that even though it was 96 degrees today, we were all quite comfortable. The pool itself was clean and refreshing for all species. Host was also very quick to answer questions and thorough and clear in their instructions to guests. My dog dog still gets nervous in new places but we had such a nice visit that I’ll be making an effort to get her familiar. Definitely a nice quiet spot to cool down with your dog on a hot day.

Amazing pool! My pets enjoyed both the pool and grass area to lounge. Also very private and secure fencing.

August 2023
My dog had a great time here even though he is a little afraid of the water (it was a great place to safely get him used to it!). The pool itself is really beautiful (even more than the pictures I think) and there’s still plenty of room to run around and sniff.

Very clean pool. Nice amenities! Was able to find everything I needed. I didn’t need them, but loved that you provided toys and a dog brush. (Though I brushed my dog before we left my house because I knew she would be too impatient to be brushed at the pool.) My dog enjoyed sniffing around as well! She really loved your pool! Thank you for rental! It was really great!

So fun to be able to bring my dog to a pool for the first time. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of life jackets, toys, water, etc too! Recommend!

First Sniffspot Experience! Area was exactly as described, very clean, with helpful instructions for entry. Supply station with dog bags, water, toys, and treats was incredibly helpful. My dogs were very happy!
Angelene R.

Love love loved this place! My pup had such a good time, he didn’t want to get out the pool. They had water, toys, life jackets, and more. It was his first time swimming and had so much fun. Definitely will be coming back!
Bridget H.

We had so much fun here. The pool is a great size and there’s also some space for the dogs to run and sniff outside of the pool. One thing I would warn against is the hot tub that’s elevated from the pool which could be a hazard if you’re not fully watching your dog. Unfortunately our pup is still warming up to bodies of water, but we loved this Sniffspot to give him some space to become more comfortable

My first time using any Sniffspot! The details provided to find and enter the property were clear. The gates made bringing my dogs in and out very secure. I was a little worried because I heard barking as soon as I entered the driveway but luckily nothing that came out. Everything was as pictured, clean pool and supplies out on a table. Highly recommend and will come back in the future.
Julia B.

Very clean and perfect for relaxing by the pool and getting the doggos used to swimming. The stairs were a bit hard for our dogs to transition from standing to swimming but they still had a ton of fun and built a lot of confidence. The toys were a hit!
Lauren P.
September 2023
My first time using Sniffspot and it went incredibly well! The experience was "hostess" so I could focus on my pup in a new environment. Several different sizes of dog life vests available as well as toys, poop bags, trash bins, fresh water and a bowl, and brushes. Recommend to all!

Beautiful pool, lots of pool toys and life jackets. The host was super accommodating when we had to reschedule due to illness. I will add that the pool has about a 4 ft ledge above the pool on one side, just something to keep in mind for old or sight challenged doggies like mine but we had no problem. Will come back again.

Thor had a ton of fun at Maxie Water Park for his birthday!! Although he refused to get in the water (he’s never been to a pool before) he sniffed around and found his fave spot under the beautiful tree and chewed his new toy branch. I appreciated the latched gate surrounding the pool & all the toys available for playing! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful pool and surrounding area, great for running around and lots of swimming. Includes life jackets and toys, and drinking water for both people and pups. Extraordinarily clean, can't wait to go back. My dog enjoyed every minute! Thank you so much for sharing this spot with us.
