I work in the magazine and documentary film business based in Los Angeles, New York and Rio.

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 4 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.

David Parker purchased this apartment in 2009

I bought this apartment because it was right in the middle of my favorite neighborhood, 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.

The best accommodations in Rio!!

  • Submitted: Feb 9, 2014

David, Junior, 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!!!

The experience was wonderful! The penthouse was beautiful and spacious, and overlooked the view of the city. We were greeted with a beautiful fruit basket and wine. The rooms were spacious, clean and decorating beautifully. The common areas were comfortable and the roof top terrace was extremely relaxing.

Perfect headquarters for your trip to Rio

I can't say enough good things about the Coral Penthouse, it's owner and staff!

We were a group of 8, all couples and had an amazing time. The penthouse is in the perfect location to grab the subway or bus, a short walk to Copacabana Beach (a little over a block) with great food and shopping along the way. It is nice to have a place to cook and relax after a long day (or night) of sightseeing. Very safe and the staff went out of their way to help us with our plans, transportation to and from the airport, and were always making sure we had everything we needed!

It is also great to have a cleaning lady. This is very unusual when you rent a place to stay and I didn't even realize we did until we got there! The beds were very comfortable to after a long day!

We rented the 3 bedroom plus the library and it was perfect for our group.

It is right in the heart of Copacabana. A sort walk to Copacabana Beach and a little further to Ipanema. We were able to grab the bus right outside to the Arboretum We hopped the Subway at the end of the block to Santa Therese and the business district for shopping. We walked a block to the dance studio for our Samba Lessons and later we grabbed a cab at the corner to take us to Rio Scenarium to practice our moves!

We would definitely stay again the next time we go to Rio and will recommend to anyone who wishes to visit Rio and all of its culture and beauty!!!

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. David and his staff provide everything from electrical plug converters...wifi... beach towels....everything was taken care of!

The penthouse was exactly as described in the photos...very clean, well kept, and beautifully decorated. Maralene kept the apartment spotless!

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. The penthouse was perfect for us in every way. Junior and David assisted us in finding great restaurants and made suggestions for us to see many of the beautiful sights in Rio.

We had many other family/friends in Rio due to the wedding that brought us all there and the penthouse was the perfect gathering spot between our activities. This would not have been possible in a hotel and our experience would not have been as perfect as it was if it were not for the penthouse!

Simply Excellent!!

  • Submitted: Apr 24, 2013

It gives me extreme pleasure to be able to write this review. It is the least that I can do to thank the owner David, and his staff for a spectacular stay.

I rented out both sides of this home for some VIP clients, my parents and their friends. One of the best things I had planned for their stay. I service began from my first contact with David. Every email I wrote with questions, was responded to that same day, and made me feel comfortable from the start.

Since I live in Rio, I asked to visit the apartment, as to sometimes in Rio you don't get what the photo shows. How happy I was to see that the quality of the apartment was exactly what I saw.

The apartment is extremely well kept, from the paint, to the exotic artwork, the first class bathrooms, and even the items in the kitchen. They seem to have thought of everything that would be needed. We were given VIP service from the start. Remember, we were a group of 12, so had a lot of luggage. The staff was there to take our bags upstairs, as if we were in a hotel. There was even daily maid service. I always had access to assistance, at whatever time.

I myself was lucky enough to catch the owner while he was in Rio, and he made it a point to greet my family personally. What a difference it makes when you rent a quality home, from quality people.

Looking forward to the next time of renting it again. Thank you David and staff!!

The best place for a large group of people

  • Submitted: Apr 24, 2013

This was the best place for a large group of people. What we really loved about it was having the living spaces inside and out for us to be together or apart as the mood and activities of our group eventuated. We all felt this was valuable to the success of our group and our bonding, plus it gave us spaces where we could be alone if we chose to.

Having 2x kitchen facilities was also great as well as all the bathroom facilities and some bedrooms with en-suites. The decor is so welcoming and attractive with many decorating details added to create the ambiance of the accommodation . We just loved this and felt we were in a special place.

The property is clean and well maintained, and the descriptions given are accurate for the amenities provided The property is central, very easy to access and we would recommend the Penthouses to any group of people we know traveling to Rio.

Thank you David

Fabulous penthouse with great location!

  • Submitted: Jan 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
Our family of 6 adults rented the entire penthouse for 5 days and loved staying here. The location is ideal if you want to be near the beaches yet convenient to metro and restaurants.

The penthouse is beautifully decorated with everything you need. The owner provided a great driver/tour guide who spoke English and was very helpful. The cleaning service was every other day and very nice. The manager gave my adult sons information on all the clubs and night life. We enjoyed having our coffee and drinks out on the terraces which had partial views of the mountains and the beach.

The penthouse is on the 11th floor, elevators going to the 10th so its a short walk up. Good security. Wi-fi and cable TV. It feels like staying in your own home, the problem is you never want to leave!

We will always stay here when visiting Rio. David, the owner provided plenty of information before we arrived so we knew where things were and what we wanted to do. Thank you David for making the experience so pleasurable!

Sweet Penthouse!

The owner was super helpful and accommodating getting our large group in and
allowing for split payments before we arrived. The penthouse was well furnished,
clean and had a great balcony and view! Only a few blocks walking distance to
Copacabana Beach, and a delicious 24 hour snack shop right across the street!

An excellent opportunity for a large group in Rio

Left on 08/03/2012 for a stay in July 2012

There is absolutely nothing but positive to say about this Penthouse; it's located at a perfect spot close to all facilities in the middle of Copacabana. We stayed, 17 persons, for one week in July 2012, and felt like we were at a luxury hotel during this period! There shouldn't be need of saying much more than this... A perfect place to spend your time if you are to travel with a large group to Rio de Janeiro!

Perfection!!!

Fabulous apt, fabulous service, what more can be said!? We booked directly with David - very last minute due to problems with other accommodation which he took in his stride, welcomed us personally quite late at night and ensured we were settled in for the night. He assisted us with every activity, had great recommendations for nights out and meals making sure we had a great time in Rio. The apt is beautiful and the location is great. Close to metro, buses, restaurants and the beach! Highly recommended. Thanks again David.
