A Portland, Oregon-area couple has raked in $111,000 in less than a year after hosting some 2,700 guests who booked stays at their home through a site known as ‘the Airbnb for backyard pools.’

Jim and Lisa Battan of West Linn, Oregon have managed to generate a six-figure income using the online platform Swimply, which offers homeowners a chance to rent out their swimming pools at an hourly rate.

The Battans offer up their 15,000-gallon pool for rent at a fee of $75 per hour for a minimum of five guests. They also charge an additional $10 per hour for each guest above five.
