East Coast Airbnbs With Amazing Pools For Riding Out A Heatwave

As Australia’s east coast gets belted by a heatwave (32 degrees, what’s up Sydney?), every man and his dog are looking for somewhere to keep cool.

But rather than contend with crowds at the beach, why not get a few mates together and go in on an Airbnb equipped with a sparkling private pool? Here are some of the best on the country’s east coast.
