Pools: Check out the best Airbnb stays in British Columbia

Do you like to cool off in the summer but hate crowded swimming spots?

Travelers hoping to enjoy a little more privacy on their vacation have several options through Airbnb in British Columbia.

Whether you’re looking for a modest abode in a remote location or a luxurious stay at a popular beach resort, Airbnb hosts offer a wide range of accommodations across British Columbia.

Now the vacation rental company says it’s made it easier to discover the province’s best pools with its all-new design built around Airbnb Categories. Using the new interface, customers can search curated collections, with more than 50 home categories chosen for their style, location or nearby activities, including “Amazing Pools”.

Many popular destinations are packed with tourists during British Columbia’s short sunny season, making it difficult to relax on beaches and public pools.

Okanagan Lake, for example, welcomes thousands of visitors to its sandy shore. But if battling the crowds isn’t your idea of ​​a perfect summer day, you’ll want to stay somewhere that offers private respite.

Even Whistler, a destination renowned for its world-class ski resort, sees tourists flocking to its mountain lakes in droves for refreshing summer swims.

In the Lower Mainland, West Vancouver’s Ambleside Beach is breathtaking, but it’s far from a secret swimming spot. Crowds of locals flood the city’s shoreline in hot weather.

The best way to avoid crowded swimming spots is to book a private vacation at a destination across the province.
