Airbnb users tend to be ordinary folks trying to make an extra buck. So it’s always surprising when a celebrity hops on the short-term rental bandwagon. But that is exactly what Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho is doing.
Just ahead of the World Cup, Ronaldinho is renting out his Rio de Janeiro home through Airbnb for $15,000 per night, according to the New York Post.
The former Barcelona player even tweeted about the offer on Friday, boasting that it has “five bedrooms, six bathrooms … and comfortable recreational facilities.”
The athlete added that, “Guests will have access to the entire house, including the sauna, swimming pool with jacuzzi, barbecue area, home theater, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, a special fridge for beer, fireplace, office, zen room for massages or yoga, parking for up three cars and an exclusive stage to enjoy a good samba party.” [NYP] – Christopher Cameron
