Renting an Airbnb is a great alternative to staying in a hotel. They are often times far cheaper and you get the added luxury of having a full kitchen and other amenities that give you all the comforts of home. Having lived in Atlanta for the last 11 years, I’m no stranger to enjoying a nice staycation and Airbnb is always my first go to. So, I know a thing or two about the best Airbnbs in Atlanta and I’m going to share a few of my faves and some on my wishlist. Whether you are planning a trip to Atlanta and looking for the best places to stay or you are a local simply wanting a change of scenery or staycation getaway, check out these amazing Atlanta Airbnbs.
Owned by a designer, this downtown condo is perfect for anyone who has an appreciation for the arts and design. This Atlanta Airbnb is an eclectic mix of vintage vibes and modern elements. It’s where you’ll find everything from an old record player with Prince vinyls to a Victorian sofa and abstract art. It’s a hodgepodge of decor and random relics, but it all comes together effortlessly. This is one of the coolest Airbnbs I’ve ever stayed in.
Don’t even get me started on the location. If you want to be in the heart of the action, this is your place! You walk out the building and Downtown Atlanta greets you at the steps. If you’ve ever visited or live in Atlanta, you know every other street is named Peachtree St. Well, this is THE Peachtree St. that is the vein running through the heart of the city. Basically, it’s where you want to be. If you’re just on a short trip and don’t plan to venture far, you won’t need a car if you’re staying at this posh place. You’re within walking distance to everything, plus parking is a bee sting. This is one of the best areas for an Airbnb in Atlanta.
Now, the downside (for some)…there is no TV. I was perfectly fine with this, as I don’t even own a TV myself. But, the “access” to Wi-fi that’s on the listing means, you have access to purchase Wi-fi. That was a major downside for me. But, all in all, I loved this place and would stay again if I’m looking for a city break staycation. The price is not too bad either, at $106/night.
I stayed in this private guesthouse on a brief stint home, while moving between countries. I LOVED this place. It was quaint and cute and perfect for the solo traveler or a couple. It was completely separate from the main house, had its own entrance and private driveway. It was cozy and truly felt like a home away from home. I almost didn’t want to leave! The studio apartment was equipped with a mini fridge, microwave, AC, tv and desk. There’s also a washer and dryer available for guests to use as well.
The best part, the location was AMAZING! It’s only 4 miles from Downtown Atlanta, so it’s close enough to the thick of the action without all the downtown madness. You’ll be close to the Mercedes Benz Stadium, State Farm Arena, Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke and tons of other attractions. You’re also super close to the hip and funky neighborhood, East Atlanta Village.
The hosts couldn’t have been any more kind and gracious. When my car wouldn’t start the next morning, due to a dead battery, they came to the rescue and gave me a jump off without hesitation. They were so incredibly kind.
At only $79/night, this place is an absolute steal!

If you are an HGTV fanatic, like myself, you will love this two bedroom tiny house, located in Chandler Park, one of the hottest neighborhoods in Atlanta.
