This year, AirBnB is the official alternative lodging option for the games, and glimpsing into the spectacular homes it’s easy to see why. From a lush home in the forest to a penthouse overlooking Rio De Janeiro, get inspired by these exotic homes.

Cozy House in Joa
This bright orange house peeks out of lush trees, giving off a tropical boho vibe. A macrame hammock invites an afternoon nap post game-watching.
Warm wood panels envelope the space, creating a rustic setting that juxtaposes the modern furniture. A window with jungle-like views acts as art.
A yellow lacquered coffee table plays off a turquoise lamp and multicoloured art mosaic. Like many homes in Brazil, this one has an open passageway allowing for indoor-outdoor living.
Colorful pillows set the scene in the small theater, which looks like the perfect place to watch the Olympics — second to a front row seat at the games, of course.
Blue shutters open up to the master bedroom, continuing the indoor-outdoor layout. Oversized red planters line the balcony.
Ipanema Beach Apartment
An all-white interior contrasts the colors outside the door in this Ipanema apartment.
In the living room, a mod couch is equipped with patterned cushions. A herringbone wood floor brings panache to the space.
The second bedroom is rustic and spa-like. Keeping with the minimalist style of the apartment, hidden storage under the bed keeps clutter at bay.
The living room is modern and eclectic, with a cowhide rug and sleek white sofa.
Lush Forest Home
A cheerful checkered white and mint tiled porch welcomes visitors.
The same mint color extends to the bedroom, creating a cohesive look throughout the house. A gold starburst mirror adds a touch of glamor to the casual room.
Mismatched chairs are a quirky addition to the kitchen. White panelled cabinets offer a country vibe, while white-framed windows are a reminder of the lush surroundings. A large pendant light adds scale.
Floor-to-ceilings windows that open wide allow bathing among the trees.
In this artful penthouse, a oversized pendant light brings attention to the high ceilings and windows.
A plush, rounded white sofa and transparent glass coffee table leave visual space for the surrounding bright colors.
An indoor-outdoor dining room with a wood-burning oven allows for al fresco meals under the Rio sun on the regular.
