Get ready, get set, GO Summer! As summer draws nearer it's time to start thinking about cooling off by the pool. This is the next best thing if you do not have a pool in your backyard. It's just like an Airbnb only these are houses that rent their private home pools by the hour.

I know that my family would love to swim in a private pool. It's hard to get some of us to wear shorts let alone swim apparel in public me included. So, I will rent one by the hour and call my kids over for a private family pool party. By the looks of some of these pool home photos, it appears fun is waiting for us to arrive.

Rent Pools By the Hour In the Big Country and Throughout Texas

While most of the Swimply pool rentals all abide by the same set of rules, there are some extra rules at different locations. Rules that may require having minimal parking available so ride-sharing may be a requirement.

What I find super amazing is that almost all of these pool homes offer a grill and area to share a meal and beverages with your group. One of these pool homes (as you'll see in the photo gallery) was rented to have a wedding, birthday, or graduation party.

While I was only able to locate a few pool home rentals in Abilene, I found that there are hundreds throughout Texas, and you can find one to fit your budget and likes. The best part is, that you can make plans to go to a pool in another city and maybe make it the halfway point for other family members to meet for a few hours of fun family time.

The pools range from $50 to 150 dollars per hour and more depending on the location, what amenities a pool has to offer and how fancy you want to go. Check them all out and have fun swimming.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
