How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Pool?

Did you know that you could rent a private pool by the hour? Pools make it easy to beat the heat and have a swimmingly great time. But most people don’t have access to their own. Which then begs the question, “how much does it cost to rent a pool?” If you want to cool off and splash around, you don’t have to be a member of the local swim club to throw an awesome pool party this summer.

First of all, why rent a pool?

We don’t all have the luxury of digging up our yards and putting in a swimming pool. Pools can be expensive to maintain, and depending on the weather, they might not get much use. But on sweltering summer days, the water can be so inviting. Therefore, renting a pool on Peerspace is the perfect solution. You can host the summer bash of your dreams without the hassle of owning a pool full-time. 

Renting a backyard with a pool offers a lot of space for an outdoor celebration. When you want to gather out in the sun but don’t have the yard for it, borrowing a backyard is a step up from renting out a neighborhood park. A pool offers built-in party entertainment for kids and adults alike.

Renting a private pool on Peerspace is a much more appealing alternative to using your local public pool. You decide who you swim with and for how long. And, you only swim with your other guests, not a bunch of strangers. Plus, you’ll usually have access to a lovely home kitchen for all your entertaining needs.

Many people rent pools for the following events:

  • A birthday party
  • A bridal or baby shower
  • An engagement party
  • A corporate event
  • A family reunion
  • For a summery holiday, like Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day

The easiest and most fun way to rent a local pool is on Peerspace! While you can’t search for a pool by typing “pool party” into the search bar directly, it’s easy to narrow your search down to venues that include pool access. Go to our outdoor event spaces page and enter your location. Then, from the filters menu, scroll down until you find “pool.”

Check out what each venue has to offer. Will you have access to the house? Use of the grill? Are there enough tables and chairs? Check out the pictures, reviews, and amenities offered at each location that pops up in your desired area. You’ll also see the hourly rate in plain view.

Once you’ve found the perfect backyard, enter your event date and start and end time to begin the booking process. Then hit ‘Request to Book’ to get in touch with the host. This is the perfect time to ask them any questions if need be.

Most pool rental costs about $100 to $2000/hour on Peerspace.

Pool rental prices depend on several factors. The level of luxury, whether or not you have access to the rest of the home, and location are the most significant aspects of the overall price. Also, many pools may cost more if the event falls on a weekend or a holiday.

The ritziest pools in the backyards of Los Angeles mansions call for a lot more party dough than those in modest backyards. But you can easily book a stunning pool for well under $100 an hour on Peerspace and create your own oasis in the process.
