Why Yates Miller chose Rio de Janeiro City

It was my dream to live in Copacabana and I am finally living my dream! I live here 180 days a year and enjoy being part of the Copacabana culture.

What makes this condo unique

I could comfortably live the rest of my life in Copacabana.....there is such a wide variety of shops, entertainment, amusements and people here. The apartment is large and has great out door spaces with lovely blooming plants.

Great place and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely perfect in a multitude of ways. It is modern, clean with access to everything you need. The grocery store is a block away, the beach is a block away, restaurants, pastry shops, Starbucks..and need I say more. Lamartine (the on sight contact) was there for my arrival and left a phone number should we have needed anything but never intruded after that. To me that is ideal, as privacy is important. The air conditioning was plenty cool with a nice remote for adjustment. The same applies to the lighting. The large outside terrace/garden area was perfect for gathering for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The small outside terrace is the one that has the view and that would be the only thing I would change about this beautiful home. The small terrace has lots of plants but would be lovely with a high table to look at the fabulous view.

The area was perfect as well. I never once felt unsafe in the neighborhood as there were always plenty of people buzzing around with all the businesses in the area. In fact I think Rio (and Brazil in general) gets an unnecessary bad rap as far as safety goes.

One word of caution; the penthouse is located on the 13th floor and the elevator only goes to 12. If you are traveling with someone elderly or handicapped, be aware that there is one flight of stairs you must climb. And a big thanks to Yates for allowing us to check out four hours after check out time due to our late flight. He did not charge us even though I offered. VERY gracious.

Perfect an a Wonderfull time

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Rio, and the apartment we rented was great. It was very comfortable and very well decorated, and the location was great. We had supermarket, stores, restaurants, metro station and buses at walking distance from the apartment. Even though the apartment was not directly on Copacabana beach, it was just a block away; and the area was very nice to walk by. All the personnel at the building was very friendly and polite. We really enjoyed our stay in this charming apartment!!!!!

Best Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time at the penthouse in Copacobana Beach. Location is close to everything and apartment was so beautiful and had everything we could ask for. Totally secure with friendly attendants. Best though is the manager and housekeeper. We enjoyed talking with them and getting to know them, as well. My favorite was looking off the back porch and watching the Olympic boating events just off the coast and then watching the same event on the tv. Could not have asked for anything more. Hope to be able to visit again.

Thanks Yates and team!

Pictures are great, but Penthouse 1301 is even better! The Best of Copa

  • 5 of 5

I will come back to Rio only when Penthouse 1301 is available. Not kidding. Extraordinary value for an incredible property.

Excellent location. 2 min walk to Copacobana Beach, 15 minutes to Ipanema. Restaurants, shopping, grocery, bars in abundance. Building is secure with 24 hour attendants. Elevator to 12, about a dozen steps to penthouse door.

Brilliantly appointed: 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths. Full kitchen, new appliances. Large dining and living room area, but we hardly used either. We spent most every waking moment on the open, but covered, patio. The breeze, the sounds of Copa -- incredible! A sunny second patio is perfect for sunbathing. The Penthouse is big enough for 3 couples. Some extra space if your group is larger. Electric outlets, both US and Brazil are everywhere. Nice TV, never turned it on!

Extras: Communication and information from the owner is speedy and thorough. The local caretaker is courteous, helpful, informative and English-speaking. He set up transportation to/from airport and everywhere and anywhere else we wanted to go for reasonable rates with nice cars and good drivers.

What else can I say? Penthouse 13 is the find of a lifetime for travel to Rio!

Within a three block radius of 1301 there dozens of restaurant ranging from simple to tapas bars to Japanese sushi to local Brazilian food, bars with live music , shops, and movie theater.

There is nightly market on the beach less than a minute walk that sells souvenirs and Brazilian handcrafts. Children and adults both love the market.

Also, the activity on the boardwalk is always a pleasure....kiosks with live music and food, vendors with novelty items, bikes, skaters, etc......a circus of activity.
