Would You Rent Someone's Pool By The Hour? Meet Swimply, The AirBNB Of Pools...

by Christie Grimm · July 21, 2021

    One of the most devastating, underreported tragedies in this world is the pool to person ratio.

    Everybody wants to throw a pool party, but sadly, not everybody has a pool.

    Well lucky for you somebody just basically stole the concept of AirBNB and started Swimply, a marketplace for renting private pools by the hour! Yes - by the hour, just like a sketchy hotel room for prostitutes!

    13,000 pool owners in 125 markets nationwide (including The Hamptons!) have listed their swim setups. It's all just as easy as picking your favorite, booking a day and time with the host and then diving right in.

    How about this sweet Sag Harbor situation for $45 an hour?

    Or this East Hampton hideaway for $125 an hour?

    While their Hamptons roster could definitely use a few more exciting property listings, it's hard to be picky during a heat wave.

    Wherever you end up, just don't forget your chic pool float!
