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.
We were absolutely stunned when we arrived at the Coral Penthouse. My family and I were exhausted from the travel and the beauty of the penthouse as soon as we walked in, immediately gave us a second wind. The manager quickly showed us the ropes so that we could relax a little before eating at a restaurant she recommended shortly after. We were thrilled to have an English speaker a phone call away (as David includes a pre-paid phone) to contact his manager at any time. We felt safe, cared for and comfortable. The Air Conditioning in every room was amazing as we had been warned of nightmare stories being stuck in Rio with no AC!!! Overall we were beyond thrilled and hope we have a chance to come back to the Coral Penthouse next time we are in Rio!
We travel with a BJJ team to Brazil every two years. This is our 3rd time staying at this penthouse. It is a fantastic location with all the amenities you could ask for. David is a dream to work with! My husband is from Rio so we go there often and there is no place better to stay then here!
Everything about the Coral Penthouse is perfect - the location, the views, the staff and the house itself. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights with a group of friends to celebrate our wedding and couldn't have picked a better place. The house is located near great restaurants and bars, as well as a short walk to Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Max (the property manager) and David (the owner) were so responsive and helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly while we were there. I highly recommend the Coral Penthouse to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay.
From booking the property until our departure both David and Max were extremely helpful and were always just a text or email away. Max arranged pick up and drop off for our large group to and from the airport, which was needed due to the large amounts of luggage we had. We had a group of 14 total and the space was perfect for our mixed group which consisted of both couples and singles. My college friends and I found the location perfect for getting around Rio - very easy to flag a cab or order an Uber. The complex also has 24hr door service so it was always staff available to open the main door. I highly recommend this location, especially with large groups.
Thanks so much David & Max!!!
Our group stayed in the Coral Penthouse for Carnival 2016 and had an amazing time! The accommodations are top-notch and the views are amazing! The penthouses were the perfect fit for our group of 9. Plenty of room for everyone and additional spaces to relax, cook and soak up the sun and sights of Copacabana. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable and the location is ideal; convenient to the beach, the metro, groceries, shopping, and restaurants. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Property manager Max is a jewel in this crown! He's friendly, accommodating and made us feel welcome, as well as assisting us with tours and transportation, suggestions for activities and dining. Owner David was gracious, friendly and made setting up the rental easy and convenient. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Coral Penthouse to friends or associates traveling to Rio, as I know their stay would be as memorable as ours!
We couldn't have been more pleased with the Coral Penthouse. It was spacious, safe, well maintained, well equipped, clean and self-contained. We were a group in Brazil for an international wedding and staying in this accommodation was one of the key features and highlights for many of our guests. The staff were also very capable and friendly. All in all, a wonderful experience and I hope to be back.
The penthouse was a really nice touch to our stay in Rio. We had 12 adults and 1 toddler and it was plenty of space. Max and David were absolutely amazing in setting up the rooms how we wanted and answering all of my questions beforehand. Max helped set up the airport transfer which is definitely worthwhile for a big group. He also helped set up a group tour and was available whenever we had questions about the city or anything else. It's In a great location walking distance to the beach and we were able to catch buses and taxis right outside the building entrance. You really can't go wrong with this place. Thank you David and Max for making our stay so delightful!
Located in the center of Copacabana, 2 blocks from the beach, and 1 block from the Metro, your safest and most convenient gateway to explore the city!
