9 Airbnbs with Amazing Pools for Your Next Summer Getaway

Fire up the group chat and start planning a next-level pool party.

We independently source all of the awesome products and experiences that we feature on Thrillist. If you buy or book from the links on our site, we may receive an affiliate commission — which in turn supports our work.

When it comes to booking a summer getaway, everyone has different needs—close proximity to the beach, chic restaurants in the area, great hiking nearby. Well, here’s ours: a pool in which to throw the ultimate party. Nothing says summer (and specifically summer vacation) like a private pool for lounging, drinking, napping, and—wait for it—swimming.

Where to start? Well, you can always buy a new house with its own pool, OR you can find tons of great vacation rentals with pools on Airbnb. And while the booking site placed a ban on disruptive parties back in 2020, there’s certainly nothing stopping you from grabbing a group of friends for a low-key, chlorine-filled getaway.

To help kick-start your planning, we gathered up some of our favorite group-friendly Airbnbs with pools across the country. So fire up the group chat, grab some pool floats, and go!

scottsdale airbnb

16 guests/$2,103 per night


Water parks are usually crowded and always loud, but an Airbnb with its own water slide and lazy river—not to mention one of the largest residential pools in the entire state of Arizona—is the complete opposite. This home’s backyard is practically its own little adventureland, with the aforementioned pool, 10-person hot tub, basketball court, and putting greens on the grounds.


What guests say: “What an amazing spot! The pictures don’t do it justice. The yard activities were amazing (in addition to the pool) and house was more than spacious to fit 13 of my family members.”

pool party airbnb

10 guests/$283 per night


Don’t let its name fool you: the “Sugar Shack” is a decked out summer utopia. Grab nine friends for a weekend in the pool and hot tub, as well as the massive yard that boasts a grill, fire pit, tables for outdoor dining, and shaded chairs to protect you from the sun. Indoor amenities (if you even make it inside) include cable TV, air conditioning, and six comfy beds.


What guests say: “Great spot that is walking distance to North Conway Village. The house is clean, comfortable, and can host a large group. The hot tub was the highlight for us!”

texas airbnb

16 guests/$1,000 per night


Spend a weekend at this coastal Airbnb in Texas—or more specifically, around its heated pool and huge outdoor kitchen. Located just steps from the beach, the house has an outdoor shower to wash off the sand and sea; inside are several seating areas, a stunning kitchen to enjoy your meals, and 4.5 full baths so you barely have to share.


What guests say: “You know the place is great when everyone on the trip compliments you on the place you booked for everyone. This place was amazing, especially the upstairs part of the house. It was also extremely convenient for everything you need.”

las vegas airbnb

8 guests/$438 per night


Why book an impersonal, shared hotel when you can stay at this private resort-style Airbnb? Located just minutes away from the Strip, this extravagant home has everything you could want for a glitzy Vegas vacation (and then some). Gather ‘round the rock pool and its nine waterfalls, grotto, and swim-up bar to beat the desert heat, then shower and head to the casinos to gamble away all the money you saved by booking this amazing home. Other amenities include a barbecue, hot tub, and indoor fireplace.


What guests say: “Amazing place to stay in Vegas!! Has everything you need and is about 15 minutes away from the Strip, but you will not want to leave the house!!”

california airbnb

10 guests/$750 per night


If you want to raise your Airbnb standards for the rest of forever, might we suggest staying in this impossibly cool Temecula paradise? Feel like Ariel herself as you swim in the home’s epic grotto and pool with its own waterfall. And not that you need further convincing, but the backyard also has a BBQ grill, bocce ball court, and fire pit, plus a fully-stocked game room inside.


What guests say: “This home is beautiful and very spacious. The backyard is a great space to hang out. It’s close to the wineries and a great place to stay.”

knoxville airbnb

12 guests/$375 per night


Imagine this: You’ve just spent a sweaty day hiking in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and you could use a dip. So you simply head back to your Knoxville Airbnb in all its glory and experience true relaxation. Whoever in your group has any energy left can tackle the grill, while the rest of you jump in the pool and ease your sore muscles in the hot tub. Choose one of the four bedrooms to recharge in, then wake up and start your day in the dry sauna before you do it all over again.


What guests say: “Very roomy and beautiful home!!! The owners have taken serious thought into ensuring everything one would need is there! Would absolutely revisit and recommend.”

hamptons airbnb
East Hampton, New York

13 guests/$2,107 per night


Your friends who exercise on vacation (we all have at least one) will love this East Hampton home that comes with its very own Peloton bike. Of course, if you’re there just to relax, you might prefer the heated pool, hot tub, ping pong table, and Sonos entertainment system to blast your favorite tracks in every room. The home sits on an enormous two acres, so you can enjoy some privacy when you’re not exploring the trendy Hamptons scene.


What guests say: “One of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had. Stephanie and her family showed us around the house upon arrival and made us feel very welcome. The house was beautiful and so was the pool/backyard/hot tub. I would strongly recommend staying here!”

utah airbnb

16 guests/$505 per night


We’ll just give you the facts since these photos speak for themselves. Located just 45 minutes from Zion National Park, this home—complete with a whopping 25 beds—is made for large groups. The back deck has a heated pool, hot tub, grill, and mountain views every which way you look.


What guests say: “Awesome house! Great amenities, CJ was quick and responsive, answered all my questions leading up to the trip. Definitely planning on coming back with this same group and others!”

palm springs airbnb

If you’re looking for luxury during your visit to Palm Springs, this Airbnb provides it. The modern home boasts four stylish bedrooms, plus common areas decked out with mid-century modern furnishings.
