Note: The $1350 monthly price for the Red room is calculated per 4 weeks (28 to 30 days) even though airbnb does not have a way to calculate the price on a per 4 week basis but on a 30 days basis. In other words, regardless of what airbnb will show as a price on the dashboard, in the event that you will want to rent the room for 28 or 29 days, the price will still be 1350$ minimum for four weeks and will remain $1350 from 28 to 30 days. It will then go up 90$ per day.
