FOOTBALL STAR: Ronaldhino.

If watching the World Cup in football-mad Brazil isn't enough of an experience, how about staying in the home of one of their biggest stars as well?

Ronaldinho is renting out his Rio de Janeiro mansion in the first half of July during the finals stage of the tournament.

The 34-year-old former Brazil and Barcelona star this week posted on Twitter a link to an Airbnb advert for the newly-renovated five bedroom, six bathroom abode.

A mere 34,350 reais (NZ$18,137) per night will get you access to the entire house - including a sauna, swimming pool, jacuzzi, barbecue area, home theatre, wine cellar, zen room for massages and yoga plus an "exclusive stage to enjoy a good samba party with friends".

Oh, and also a special fridge for beer.

"I will leave all instructions and recommendations with my personal team that will be ready to help whenever you need," Ronaldinho said in the description.

The property was located in the upmarket Barra da Tijuca district, a half-an-hour drive from Maracana Stadium - host of the World Cup final.
