New Service Lets You Rent a Stranger’s Swimming Pool for an Afternoon


As Thrillist reports, Swimply is an Airbnb-like service that lets property owners rent out their empty pools by the hour to people desperate to take a dip in peace. Hourly rates are higher than what a day pass at your local public pool might cost you and most places have a one-hour minimum, but depending on what you’re looking for, you can find a pool that fit your needs. A quick search of the Los Angeles area brings up pools ranging from $25 to $150 an hour. The more luxurious options include hot tubs and saltwater pools, and some homeowners even offer backyard amenities like grills and fire pits. And if you don’t mind sharing the space, you can always invite some friends to tag along and split the cost.
