I work in the magazine & film business based in New York City & Los Angeles. I discovered Brazil in 2000, and began traveling often to get to know the country and people better. With lots of flexibility in my work, I spend more than 3 months a year in Brazil. I bought this very special duplex penthouse 5 years ago. It's a bit a paradise just 2 blocks from the beach.
I have just finished buying and renovating a 4 bedroom luxury penthouse next door. It can be rented separately or together for a total of 7 bedrooms.
David Parker purchased this apartment in 2005
I bought this apartment because it was right in the middle of my favorite location, Copacabana. Copacabana is the original beach city of Rio. And has all the charm and life of a vital city. It's also so much more convenient to reach the downtown or other locations such as Ipanema.
David, Junior, Bruno, and Maralene were wonderful hosts and we can't wait to return. We highly recommend David's penthouse to anyone visiting Rio as there is no question on where we will stay upon our return.
We traveled to Rio for a wedding. We had 9 guests staying in the penthouse and were all very comfortable...while we were all together, we also had our own space. The penthouse was exactly as described in the photos...very clean, well kept, and beautifully decorated. Maralene kept the apartment spotless! The terrace that wrapped around the penthouse was wonderful and we slept with the terrace doors of our bedroom open each night which was such a wonderful treat.
We were a bit nervous about traveling to Rio and spent many months planning/researching our trip. David had been very helpful every step of the way in addressing any concerns/questions that we had, and we had many! David really took the time to make us feel comfortable. y.
David's penthouse is located just two blocks from Copacabana beach in an active part of town, the surrounding streets felt safe and never deserted. The penthouse is located in a locked building with a 24 hour attendant which made us feel secure. There are grocery stores, ATM machines, restaurants, and a great 24 hour juice bar within a block. Junior directed us to a great cafe for breakfast just 2 blocks away- Cafeina, which was delicious!
Junior was especially great...some of our guests arrived at different times and he made sure that he was present to greet them and answer any questions that they had. He made coffee upon arrival and provided us with a beautiful basket of treats! He checked in with us regularly and was available to us via phone as needed when we had questions...he was our own personal concierge with so much knowledge about the city! He even helped with our luggage!
Thank you David!!!
Lovely penthouse duplex with great views of Rio and a two block walk to Copa Cabana beach. Nice layout with all the little touches-all three bedrooms had very comfy beds and excellent showers! The kitchen was stocked with everything that you'd need for a great cocktail hour and/or dining on the terrace. Maid service was offered every day during the week, which is a plus for a rental property. The owner and property manager was there for us 24-7. Any questions or requests were immediately responded to!! We were a family of 6 and it was wonderful having everyone under one roof. We had breakfast together before starting the day, had great cocktail hours both on the terrace and indoors listening to great basa nova music and we had a samba lesson on the terrace one evening which was lots of fun! The only negative is that the building is a bit run down, yet the owner did a fabulous job creating a penthouse duplex that felt like Brazilian heaven the moment you put the key in the door!
We were a group of 6 visiting Rio for the first time. We found this penthouse on VRBO and the pictures that represented did not disappoint. It is on the 11th floor looking out on the city (there is no clear view to the beach, but you are able to see mountains and the expanse of the Copacabana district). You can hear the hustle and bustle of the city below, yet have a quite, intimate feeling above. All your immediate needs are withing 2 blocks (grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc). You are only a 5 min walk to the beach. The neighborhood is very safe as well.
The penthouse was very clean and inviting. As a foreigner who had never been to Brazil, the penthouse was exactly what I had hoped it would be with the amenities and space for 6. The rooms are spacious and clean. There isn't a washer and dryer in the penthouse, but you can get/use the property washer and dryer. The internet connection was very good as well-to stay connected to all your worldly cares you are supposed to leave behind.
Max, the property manager, is top notch and is more than helpful during the entire process. I had many questions prior to our arrival and he answered them promptly and professionally. While we were down there, we had several inquisitions about local excursions. Max sat with us and made the phone calls to try to get us the times and logistics most favorable for us.
If, and when, we return to Rio, we will definitely stay here again.
We all had a wonderful time at this awesome penthouse. There were 17 of us and it was very comfortable, there was plenty of room for all of us. The penthouse is clean and beautiful and the manager and the housekeeping staff are very pleasant and helpful, they were so kind and good to us all, taking care of all our needs.
I decided I wanted to do something different for my golden birthday and I am truly grateful that I found this place. It was a slice of paradise at the coral penthouse. I was so relieved to see that the actual place matched the beautiful pics seen online. David and Max were very hospitable and really genuine people. Max especially, came by to check in on us to ensure that we were having a great time and also suggested places for us to see while staying there. The place was well maintained and cleaned daily as we went out to explore. It's a really good feeling to come home to a well made up bed every day. I would definitely love to visit again and hopefully spend more time in Rio. Thank you guys for everything!
The property was everything we expected and more. The apartment is located two blocks from the beach , and in a great part of Copacabana next to some good restaurants and small bars. The location of the apartment is great because there is a metro station nearby that makes every part of Rio easy to get to, and is also only a short taxi ride to many other parts of the city. David and Max's customer service was impeccable and they are both extremely responsive and willing to help you have a great stay in Rio. I traveled there with two other young guys (all around 27) and Max and David always helped us find great places to go out and eat and gave us great recommendations on what parts of the city to visit. I would definitely recommend this penthouse to anyone else visiting Rio. Have a great trip!
This property absolutely as advertised with the added bonus of the wonderful assistance of on-sight manager, Max! Literally, all that one could wish to have in a temporary 'home away from home.'
This Duplex Penthouse can be integrated into the independent, but adjoining 4 bedroom Penthouse and can be rented together for a total of 7 bedrooms (See rental #359605) or separately (See rental #376938),
