(updated on June 2021) – You do not travel this summer? Do you want to escape the San Francisco fog for a bit? Are the beaches too crowded or the water too cold? Public pools are still partially closed? Are you not part of a country club with a pool? Don’t have good friends with a pool? Never mind! You can access private pool rentals just like on Airbnb, book them for yourself or with your family for a few hours!
Via the website or the Swimply app you can choose your date, time, and region and the aquatic adventures are a just click away. Hourly rates range from $ 30 to $100 (in the Bay Area) with sometimes discounts when you return to the same location.
There are different styles some more rustic some more modern, chlorine or saltwater, some are equipped with outdoor kitchens, barbecues, lounge chairs, a multitude of options are available depending on the location. Some swimming pools offer more privacy than others as they are sometimes located just in front of the owners’ house, but in our experience, the hosts remain discreet. The principle is the same as on Airbnb, you can leave a review and also be evaluated. Some hosts allow parties, swim lessons, etc…
Some hosts insist on cleanliness and disinfect the furniture between two guests.
A very welcome website in this summer period when we can not travel easily … Let’s try and be satisfied with simple pleasures, simple like Swimply … so for a little splash it’s over there: https://swimply.com
