As it turns 10, Airbnb is widely popular and has been growing quickly for over a decade. Its 2019 gross bookings reached $9.4 billion in the first quarter of 2019, up 31% year-over-year, according to Crunchbase News.

Airbnbs have been going strong in the Atlanta metro area since the concept was introduced in 2009. The Super Bowl in Atlanta gave prices a huge boost, but now they're back to a normal now. You can still find luxury dwellings that command top prices, though. Here are four of the upper-crust, short-term rental highlights:

More affordable and outrageously fun, the all-pink exterior and mostly-pink inside are all yours. It's begging for bridal shower weekends and other pink-inspired sleepovers.
