Guestbook comments from the owner
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!!!

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.

Great View and Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5
This penthouse was spacious with a great view and about 2 blocks from the beach. It's in Copacabana, which is a nice retreat from downtown Rio but only a quick metro ride away. The owner was very responsive and helpful. This would be a great place to stay if you're heading to Rio for the World Cup.

Lovely apartment near beach

  • 4 of 5
Two friends and I rented this lovely three bedroom apartment that sits two blocks from the Coppacabana beach and in walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, banks, and the post office. It is very spacious with a fully stocked kitchen and air conditioning in each room. The bathrooms are large and the closet space plentiful. The building's security is excellent and we felt extremely safe. The upstairs bedroom is a bit difficult to access with luggage, but once you get up there, the view is awesome. It has it's own private terrace that compliments the one below. The apartment has maid service every other day and is clean and well- maintained. The owner was very pleasant and accommodating and responded to our every need. The rental process was easy and hassle fee. I highly recommend staying in this venue.

Owner's Response: The private upstairs suite has it's own full bathroom, and enormous garden terraces with dramatic views of the mountains, jungle and city. It's reached by a circular staircase which gives it a feel as though it's all on its own. Large luggage is a little tricky to navigate on the staircase, but our staff are always available to help.

Fantastic option for 4 to 14 people in Rio!

  • 5 of 5
I recently travelled with a group of 7 guys to Rio de Janeiro. I had been to Rio on numerous occasions and usually stayed in a hotel. This was a far better experience and far more reasonable price. This penthouse is 2 blocks from Copacabana beach - 2 major grocery stores a stone throw away. Every morning started with a custom made juice concoction from the juice bar across the street than ended up being called "The Canadian". We rented both penthouses that connect if need be from the patio. Perfect place for larger groups who enjoy hanging out together and having the ability for ultimate privacy at the same time. I would most definitely stay there again. The owner was always available and helpful. All transactions were seamless.

This place made the trip to Rio a real pleasure

  • 5 of 5
Dave, the owner, helped us out of a jam as a last minute reservation. Our son had stayed here previously and raved about the apartment and it's location. Dave was so gracious to allow us to come early and even take a shower in his own unit until the apartment was ready. The views, the appointments of the space, the comfort was like being welcome to an old friends home. We were provided with a great location, 3 blocks from the beach, and great local restuarants and shopping. Dave as the host provided with great converstion. The unit had fresh fruit and drinks, daily maid service, comfortable beds, a large kitchen (by Brazilian standards) and killer views of the ocean and mountains. We couldn't have asked for a more friendly environment or host. When next we visit our son in Brazil, we would not hesitate staying here again in Rio. Dave, thanks for everything.

Wonderful Place to Call Home While in Rio

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and 2 other couples had the good fortune of securing this lovely condo for a brief stay in Rio de Janeiro, just a couple of days after Carnaval. The space was as good as it looks in the pictures (always an unknown until you actually arrive!), and David Parker the owner was very responsive and accessible. We arranged for his contact, Marcos, to pick us up at the airport and that was a very smooth process, as well as the easy check-in with Adriano. We highly recommend this for great location, comfort and ease of use if you're looking to stay in Rio. We definitely hope to be back! Thanks again, David!
