Book Your Own Backyard Pool This Summer

Swimply connects pool-seekers with private spots for a local getaway.

Throw a private pool party that suits your family, without neighborhood crowds or noise. Through Swimply—like Airbnb for pools— folks can book other people’s private pools to take a relaxing dip or splash around. Currently, the Denver metro area has 13 family-friendly (children and infants allowed) pools available for rent at $35 to $135 per hour. The most luxurious setups host up to a few dozen people and include things like hot tubs, grills, water and lawn games, fire pits, and even a slide. Many provide just the basics, with everything you’d need for a safe, fun day or evening out, including bathroom access, pool toys, and lounge chairs. All pools are BYOL (be your own lifeguard), so have some safety guidelines in place!
