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 and documentary film business based in Los Angeles, New York and Rio.

I grew up in California, where the only thing I knew about Brazil was that I loved Sergio Mendez and Brazil '66!!

I really discovered Brazil first hand 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 of paradise just 2 blocks from the beach.

David Parker purchased this apartment in 2005

After renting for many years, I bought this penthouse in 2005. It was a beautiful, and historic property and in an ideal location. It is convenient to everything. 2 blocks to the beach, 1 to the subway. The neighborhood is completely safe and full of supermarkets, cafes, banks, etc.

PERFECT HEADQUARTERS FOR YOUR TRIP TO RIO

  • 5 out of 5
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!!!

Owner's Response: Tracey, it was a pleasure to host you and your friends. You jumped into to the spirit of Rio and as a result got so much more out of your stay. Nothing could please us more!

We look forward to your return one day soon!

BEST PROPERTY IN RIO, GRACIOUS OWNER AND MANAGER

  • 5 out of 5
I own a travel company and regularly stay in privately owned condos in Rio and around the world. I can honestly say that this was by far the most beautiful place and best experience that I have had. David, the owner, and his team are thoughtful, responsive and gracious.

My team and I were working in Rio on a large event and lived here for three weeks. Our stay began with freshly baked Brazilian cheese bread and a basket of snacks. David and Junior answered all of our questions about virtually everything. One morning our hot water was not working, but they fixed it immediately.

The decks are fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed them for socializing, relaxing and even working. There is an A/C unit in every room that cools the place in minutes. Each bedroom had its own character with comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, glasses, utensils and so forth and we cooked a number of meals there. Grocery stores are found on every block.

I highly recommend this property to friends, family and anyone wanting a better experience than a hotel can offer. Our group of seven saved thousands of dollars by staying here and not in a hotel, and the service was better, more personal and friendlier. I am so glad I found this property on HomeAway.com

THE CORAL PENTHOUSE

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the above penthouse from 8th March to 13th March and had a wonderful time in Rio, we were a large party of different ages and the apartment was perfect, very well located in a safe friendly neighbourhood near to the shops, bars, restaurants and within easy walking distance of Copacabana Beach. They had someone on Reception day and night and David the owner could not have been more helpful putting us in touch with people who could organise tours, football tickets and pick ups from airports etc. The apartment was very well equipped and had delightful outdoor spaces where we could eat, drink and relax with glimpses of the sea from one side and top of the mountains from the other.

We were a party staying prior to a wedding and the lovely relaxed atmosphere and the sights of Rio certainly got this special holiday off to a great start.

MCNAB PARTY

  • 5 out of 5
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 travelling to Rio.
Thank you David

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a wonderful time in Rio and in my home. You are another family "wedding party" that has stayed in my penthouse. It's a privilege to be part of such a memorable and important occasion. And I'm so happy that we could provide you 'a home in Rio' that allowed you to enjoy each others company in beautiful and comfortable surroundings. I hope to see you all back again in Rio!!
