Have a pool for the day with the Airbnb of swimming pools

Want to host a pool party, but you don’t own a pool? No problem with Swimply, the Airbnb of swimming pools. Swimply is an online marketplace where pool owners can rent out their pools by the hour.

If you’re ready to rent a pool for a party or just for an hour or two to pamper yourself, you can scroll through Swimply’s listings and select the right pool for an event or special occasion. You can search by location, time, and amenities included with the rental. We’ve listed a range of examples of Swimply pool listings and prices below.

Browsing current Swimply listings found pools for rent in 10 U.S. states and Ontario, Canada. Hourly rental rates ranged from a low of $20 on weekdays and $30 on weekends to a high of $160 per hour Monday through Friday and $200 an hour Saturday and Sunday.

There are indoor and outdoor fresh and saltwater pools among the Swimply listings. Some pools allow access and use to a wide range of amenities like pool toys, waterslides, and hot tubs. Surprisingly, many of the pools do not include access to bathrooms, which seems counter-intuitive.
