It might be the cheapest vacation you can get during the coronavirus pandemic: a swim in a stranger’s pool. 

Homeowners are putting up their backyard pools for hourly rental on an app called Swimply, which first saw interest when it was featured on “Shark Tank.” 

Marietta Ciavarra is paying $60 per hour to rent a luxurious pool in the Hollywood Hills. 

“I love it,” she said. “It’s beautiful.”

She believes it’s the safest way to enjoy a dip on a hot summer day and a much better alternative to going to the beach, where masks aren’t always being worn by others.

For Jeff Weisfeld, Swimply has proven to be a lucrative source of income. Charging $60 per hour for use of his pool, he’s so far made about $3,000.

“Anyone who feels they can benefit, they are a friend to me,” he said.
