An app that has been dubbed the “Airbnb for pools” and allows people to rent out pools by the hour has boomed over the course of the pandemic.
Swimply was founded in 2018 as a way for customers to rent private pools, but has grown 4,0000% over the past year. Its cofounder Bunim Laskin told The Wall Street Journal that hourly rentals on the app have surged to over 120,000 bookings over the past year, as the pandemic shuttered many public pools.
The app is home to about 13,000 pool owners across the country from Los Angeles to New York City. Prices on the app average between $35 to $50 per hour depending on the user’s location.
One pool owner told the Journal that he expects to make over $110,000 this year from renting out his luxury pool. The app’s cofounder Asher Weinberger told the publication that pool owners earn about $5,000 to $10,000 per month on average, while the company takes a 15% cut from hosts and imposes a 10% fee on guests.
