Have you heard of Swimply? It’s a fairly new service, similar to Airbnb that offers private swimming pools to rent all over the U.S. While many locations can be found in everyday neighborhood locations, there are a number that stand out above the rest including these eight luxury pools that can be yours for anywhere between $45 and $300 an hour. We’re talking pretty incredible places with waterslides, fountains, waterfalls and amazing views. Find something you like? Click on the link to learn more.
