I'm looking for a house with a private pool for a few days over the summer in the US but I'm not sure where to look. I've tried the Miami area but didn't find what I was looking for. I know Palm Springs has some great options but I don't want to be there in the heat. I'm thinking somewhere in the LA area, perhaps around Denver would be pretty nice but I'm open to ideas. Anyone have any good areas / cities that would be more likely to have these types of houses?
 
TIA

Does Airbnb offer insurance for the guest for any potential damage? Does that exist?

Shame on them. We need to make an uproar.

@Dan Any chance of a well written article explaining the ridiculousness of this position?

They are likely in violation of anti BDS laws in 26 US States, as they are singling out Israel out of all other disputed territories.

ETA: Thank you @Dan! Hopefully we can shake things up.

Did you have any plans to use Airbnb in the near future?

Booking.com indicates it won't boycott Judea and Samaria
Online travel service indicates it won't follow in the footsteps of Airbnb and withdraw listings in Judea and Samaria
