If you’re looking for a way to bring in some extra cash then look no further than your backyard. Homeowners are making money by renting their pools to people who long for a refreshing dip without screaming kids running around. Swimply, the Airbnb of pools, created by 22-year-old founder Bunim Laskin.
Already launched in the United States in 2017, Laskin is making Swimply available down under now that it’s Summer in Australia.
Pools are inspected for health and safety and once everything checks out your pool can be listed.
Pool owners have made up to $12,000 during the seven weeks of Summer.
Hosts control who uses their pools and visitors only have access to the pool area.
There isn’t a set price for visiting a Swimply pool but most owners charge between $20-$50 per hour.
There has to be at least one person over 18-years-old and if a guest receives a low star rating they are removed and can’t use Swimply.
Ever got home from a long day at work and all you want to do is jump in a pool, but, alas, you don’t have one? Well, this new Airbnb for quick dips may be the answer.https://t.co/J9GBhlBcJg— news.com.au (@newscomauHQ) November 26, 2019
