About David Parker

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

Why David Parker chose Copacabana

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.

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!!!

Amazing stay! Would definitely go back!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Great family penthouse in central location

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse was a wonderful place to stay. Beautifully decorated, and

spacious for our two families which included three small children, we found

the penthouse the ideal place to stay in Rio. The terrace is a great area to

take your meals, and hang out in the evenings. The kitchen has modern

appliances, and is well set up if you enjoy cooking. Conveniently-located

grocery stores, and other small shops are right in the neighborhood. There

is daily cleaning service - a real plus. Max Homsi, our caretaker, met us

upon arrival, provided lots of useful information, and checked up on us

everyday to see how we were doing.

Simply the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

The Coral Penthouse was an incredible complement to the city of Rio! It was an easy distance to amazing open air, fresh fruits, fish and veggie outside market, shopping, beach, and a 24 hour juice bar! This is a gorgeous home away from home, fully stocked kitchen without the hassle of clean-up! A visually stimulating, soft, clean, cool place to recharge for the endless adventures Rio has to offer. There is a sense of privacy and community. We would do this vacation the same way over and over and over again! The staff is thoughtful, accommodating, attentive and friendly. LOVED IT!
