If you've always wanted a pool but can't have one, why not rent someone else's pool for the day with an app?


A website and app called Swimply is taking the nation by storm and allows you to rent someone's pool for a per-hour rate.

Pool For Rent In Lake Charles

This is a fantastic concept. It's not just great for parties and get-togethers, but if you don't have a pool and want to go swimming on a hot summer's day, you now have the chance at your fingertips. My kids, Elijah (16) and Khloe (13), love to swim, so I might have to keep this app a secret because they would bankrupt me.

I looked up Lake Charles on the Swimply website and a pool came up for rent at a rate of $60 per hour. That's not bad. However, I got a feeling once this article starts circulating on Facebook, we'll see a lot more pools for rent in SWLA.


This Pool For Rent Features:

  • Grill
  • Outdoor Bar
  • Dining Table
  • Diving Board
  • Large Shallow Area
  • Lounge Chairs
  • Night Lighting
  • Pool Toys
  • Salt Water
  • Large Pool area
  • Lunch Table
  • Shaded Area
  • Towels
  • Great Sunlight

Here's what Swimply's website says about the pool:

Covered back patio with 3 fans and shades, couch, two chairs, fire pit, 60-inch smart tv, a bar that seats 6, mini fridge, pool area has diving board, led color changing lights, 2 chairs under an umbrella, two lounge chairs with umbrellas.



It's a win-win situation. People without pools can now have access to swim whenever they want and pool owners can help recoup some of the money it takes to operate a pool. Because let's be honest, pools are crazy expensive to keep up.

The founders of Swimply were on an episode of Shark Tank and didn't get funded, but they've seen a 2,000% increase in users since then, partly because of the exposure, but also because of the pandemic. People are looking for safe alternatives for family outings.

So, if you have a pool, you might consider signing up for this service while it's hot.
