We have a room available to rent in our large 4br house with pool in Santa Teresa /Laranjeiras from the beginning of January till the 10th February.
The room that is available has an ensuite shower and floor to ceiling wardrobes and is R$1,000/mth for 1 person, R$1,300 for 2 people. The house is 2 mins away from 2 bus routes (one to Largo do Machado and one to Lapa / Centro) so getting around is really easy.
The house has a pool, wifi internet and cable TV.
More info on the house and photos etc can be found here: Protected content (it is Room 1 that will be available).
