Whether you’re planning a staycation, thinking about making a trip to Atlanta with your kiddos, or looking to outsource your best friend’s weekend visit with tots in tow, these family-friendly Airbnb’s are epic. From manse to mini, graceful to mod, these off-the-radar spots are all marvelous. Keep reading for everything you need to know about our city’s best kept Airbnb secrets.

Llama Luxury Cottage

Stay with the Dali Llama once at this Llama Luxury Cottage and you'll never book a traditional hotel stay again. Kids will love these gentle creatures (but take a spare shirt—llamas spit when mad), the on-site hens (and fresh, organic eggs), and the bamboo forrest. This quirky urban oasis is located only 20 minutes from the Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta Children's Museum, and Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta.

Buckhead Carriage House

If Southern charm is what you're after, then this graceful Buckhead Carriage House is for you. Situated in the heart of Atlanta's in-town neighborhood known for its restaurants, shopping, and beautiful homes (also for the Legoland Discovery Center, Atlanta History Museum, and within striking distance to some of the city's prettiest parks and playgrounds), this beautiful abode with its own pool is perfect for families.

Teepee in the City

The Tepee is tucked in the corner of a unique property in East Atlanta that is shared with another Tepee, a Sovereign Airsteam, a Caravel Airstream, and a Dalton Camper—all rented out to other guests. It's high on the novelty list and certain to delight any adventure-loving littles, but isolated it is not. Families can use the fenced in backyard, complete with a garden, hammocks, hot tub, treehouse and zipline, and fire pit, and the owners live on-site with their two younger kids.

Midtown Modern and Miniature

This Tiny House packs a big punch when it comes to cleanliness, thoughtful design, and proximity to in-town's favorite hotspots near Piedmont Park and the Botanical Garden, the BeltLine, the Krog Street Market, the Atlanta Zoo, and more. The tucked-away bedroom and the enchanting loft space make this tiny house a big hit with your kiddos, and don't let the size scare you. This casa is located close to everything worth seeing and doing, so your couch time will be limited. But while you're there? Magic. 

Worth the Drive: Mansion in Fayetteville

So while not anywhere near Atlanta proper, this Suburban Behemoth will make up in amenities what it lacks in charm and proximity. The lakefront Chateau boasts a heated pool, batting cage, basketball/volleyball court, playground, game room, gym, two kitchens, PediSpa, and three fireplaces. While this is more Real Housewives than Gone With the Wind, your kiddos will no doubt be impressed, and you can still day trip it to Atlanta's attractions.
