The New Trend: AirBNB for Swimming Pools
Swimply is an app that allows people to rent swimming pools by the hour. You read that right.
You and friends can rent a strangers pool for a few hours.
Though it’s been around since 2018, it’s reportedly grown by 2,000 percent during the pandemic.
Those who rent out their pools can also include other amenities, like the use of a grill or fire pit. This comes as backyard pools have seen a huge surge in popularity during the pandemic—though they can be expensive.
Prices range from $50-$75/hour.
And those are the most reasonable options.
The locations, which provided additional perks like hot tubs, barbecue grills, and outdoor televisions, cost upwards of $200.
It could be fun if you had a large group.
