No pool, no problem. An Airbnb-esque rental company will swoop in and help you find the best places in your neighborhood to take a dip.

If you're in need of a little R&R and can't get your hands on an inflatable hot tub, we suggest you peruse Swimply. Upon opening the app, you'll be prompted to fill in your location, desired date, and duration of your swim session. From there, you'll discover a whole host of private rental possibilities, which vary by location. Typically, pool rentals range from $45–$100 per hour. 

If you have a pool that you're looking to list on the site, excellent news: Swimply is also looking for hosts, and it might just be a good way to earn a little extra cash. (The site claims you're able to rake in up to an extra $10,000 per month by doing so.) And for the practical-minded, you'll be pleased to know that the Swimply Insurance Policy protects hosts for up to $1 million for general liability claims.

Since travel plans might not resume to normal in time for summer vacation, a swim staycation just might be what the doctor ordered. It's a way to have fun, get out, and enjoy some downtime without the risk of being exposed to large crowds. And, in the near future, the company will expand its rental offerings via Joyspace to include private gyms, basketball courts, and other cool amenities!

While the 2021 forecast might be worrisome (if you're taking a look at the Farmers' Almanac summer weather predictions and worrying about the impending cicadas invasion), there will still be some sunshine to soak up, and you need to take advantage.
