Have Olympics Fever? See 5 Cool Airbnbs In Rio To Check Into

#1: A sprawling penthouse in Arpoador
This two-bedroom penthouse triplex is conveniently located in between Ipanema and Copacana beaches, and besides its quirky, eclectic furnishings, another big draw is the jacuzzi on its roof terrace, certain to be a popular hangout spot. $308/night #2: A bright, airy home in Ipanema
Decked in sleek, contemporary furnishings (we love the leather chaise and intriguing sculptures), this massive duplex penthouse boasts five bedrooms and can accommodate up to eight people. There’s a kitchen, a rooftop terrace and a pool to lounge in too – how that’s living the good life. $1,276/night #3: A studio apartment in Copacabana
Boasting high ceilings and a great location (it’s one block away from the beach), the four-bedroom apartment resides in a recently renovated historic building and has a wrap-around balcony that gives you a view of the sea as well as the mountains and the city. $373/night #4: A cosy apartment with a stunning sea view
The two-bedroom apartment in Ipanema has a clean, contemporary interior with concrete walls, wood furnishings and abstract art prints on its walls. Plus, it’s located close to several beaches so you can get your dose of Vitamin Sea easily. $352/night #5: An arty space in Rio de Janeiro
Located in the artsy Santa Teresa neighbourhood, the one-bedroom apartment is set on a hill, affording it glimpses of the Bay of Guanabara and the bridge to Niberoi. While away the time in a quiet garden, or soak up the district’s cultural vibe with visits to a nearby museum, the Chacara do Ceu, which showcases European and Brazilian art. $113/night   Like this?
