The Coral Penthouse Staff

In addition to David Parker, the owner, The Coral Penthouse family consists of 3 full time staff who provide you services you won’t find at most other vacation rentals.  All three are based in the penthouse offices which are in the same building as the apartments.  The staff are easily accessable for any questions or assitstance you might need during your stay.

Max Homsi – the General Manager – I have worked for over 10 years at the top hotels in both Santa Barbara and Rio de Janeiro.  My most recent position was the concierge at the famous botique hotel, Fasano, in Ipanema.  I am native of Rio and I know the city and it’s many attractions intimately.   Fluent in Portuguese, English and Spanish, I will help you with transportation, tours, reservations, tips and advice to ensure you have fantastic time in Rio.

Adriano Freitas – Maintenance Manager –  a native of Southern Brazil, has worked at the Penthouse for over 10 years, ensuring that the maintenance of the apartment itself is at the highest standards for our guests.

Lena Marins – Housekeeper – has also worked at the top hotels in the city.  Her attention to detail and excellent service will ensure that your ‘home in Rio’ will be spotless, and maintained in a condition that makes it a joy to return to after a day of touring the city, or just relaxing on the beach. **
