Any globetrotter will tell you that the beauty of Airbnb is discovering one-of-a-kind venues just like this one. Disguised amongst a leafy backdrop, this stunning, slightly off-grid villa is not only magnificently grand, but it’s located amongst Santa Teresa where you can enjoy a bucket-load of art and culture. The 150-year-old restored building has space for 15 guests, comes with a housekeeper to ferry you around and even has an overwhelmingly ornate interior for indulging all of your gold-gilt fantasies. Ok ok, we know that budget chain hotels have their place, but it’s definitely not here.
For a slice of local Rio life, there’s nothing quite like an Airbnb. Not only are the venues unique, but they're pretty cost-effective too. Plus, if you hire out an entire place, you won't have to sneak past other hotel rooms when you come back from a long night of partying. Winner.
So whether you’re taking a much-needed break or visiting for Carnival, we’ve gathered up some of the best places to stay in south-east Brazil. Make your trip a little more comfortable and a lot more stylish with the best Airbnb venues in Rio de Janeiro.
