Ronaldinho is renting out his house in Rio for $15,000 a night during the World Cup

Sunday, May 25, 2014 by YAHOO Sport

Two-time FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho missed out on Brazil's 2014 World Cup squad, but now he's hoping to join FIFA and corrupt local politicians in profiting off of the tournament. For just R$34,148 ($15,354) per night, you can rent the 2002 World Cup winner's Rio de Janeiro home through Airbnb.

The five bedroom, six bathroom house, which is inside a gated community in Rio's Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, has a verified listing page on Airbnb and the former Barcelona star tweeted the link to advertise the accommodations with the hashtag "#CasaR10."

Essa e pra quem esta na duvida que vou alugar minha casa no Airbnb! Bora aproveitar #CasaR10 — Ronaldinho Gaucho (@10Ronaldinho) May 23, 2014

The sparsely decorated house, which also has a three-car garage, features a pool and several unique features that are not at all surprising to find in a place Ronaldinho calls home. Here's a look...


There's a tree house in the backyard (the "No Phil Scolaris allowed" sign appears to have been removed)


There's a bongo stage for his all night jam sessions


Milan themed Ronaldinho artwork in the room with the home entertainment system


More dodgy Ronaldinho artwork


The "zen massage or yoga room" complete with football trophies


Master bedroom with hammock


Closet with a large selection of gaudy belts

A security deposit of $1023 is required and an addition charge of the same amount will be added on for more than three guests. Smoking is only allowed outside and a "service team" will be available to guests. The house also features a sauna, barbecue, cellar, and "a special refrigerator for beer." If you are Matthew McConaughey and you are planning on attending World Cup matches in July, this is definitely the place for you. A tree house and a special fridge just for beer? Worth every penny.
