Why Yates Miller chose Copacabana
It was my dream to live in Copacabana and I am finally living my dream! I live here about180 days a year and enjoy being part of the Copacabana culture. Apartment is appointed as a home....not a rental unit.
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. Since I live here, the apartment is designed to be comfortable and practical.

Excellent stay. Great amenities, great location, and overall comfort during our getaway to Rio. Highly recommend. Thank you Vates.
We had a great time and would stay again!
Couldn't have asked for better hosts. Yates and Lamartine were very communicative, helpful, and super nice.
The location was also excellent. We were able to easily walk to the supermarket, beach, and numerous restaurants. I think we tried to eat at every restaurant on that square block. The kids ate McDonald's and we had everything else. The food was so good.
The building was also great and we felt very secure in the area. The security guards were present 24/7 and were very friendly and helpful as we came and went.
The only con is that we had a hard time getting hot water in 2 of the 3 bathrooms and the floors didn't look dirty visually (very light in color) but the bottoms of my kids' feet said otherwise. We never complained it about so there could have been an easy fix for all of that but we didn't bother to ask about it because it was not a deal breaker for us.
We had a great time and would stay again! Thank you.
Amazing location and a beautiful apartment.
Loved the apartment - everything we expected and more. Would highly reccommend it to anyone going to Rio.
An Unforgettable Experience
The apartment itself is unique and well worth returning to if we traveled to Brasil again. It provided every amenity of a fully equipped apartment. We appreciated that personal towels and washcloths were provided. The view the the porch was very nice. It was spacious with such a great display of Brazilian art. I enjoyed quiet time on the covered porch with the beautiful array of plant life that added an atmosphere of peace. It is private even though it seems to be located in midst of local activity. We were able to get a great view of the New Years fire works from the back porch with no obstruction. The furnishings are very modern with a rich feel and the beds made for a comfortable sleep.
**I feel the apartment is well situated in the heart of experiencing Brasil at its best. The walk to the beach was an amazing venture. The sidewalk merchants, the outdoor pubs, the selling on the beach are all part of my forever memories. There are plenty of landmarks to navigate back and forth to the secure and gated apartment when we went out. The apartment is located to have easy access to the outdoor restaurants and the convenience of the food market and shopping. This makes it real easy for first time visitors. We were careful not to venture to far. The Brazilian people are warm and helpful when we stumbled through interpreting English and Portuguese. Highly recommended
Perfect penthouse for a vacation
The apartment is a little better than described. There is a washer and a dryer and clothes lines - the latter is rare in Rio de Janeiro. The furniture and furnishings, above all the two main beds are wonderful. The views of the ocean and beach are great. Although there are restaurants and bars on the street level, the apartment is too high up to hear all that noise below. The kitchen has everything you want. The greenery from the many plants is a delightful. The owner was very conscientious in attending to any calls or emails. The bus stops are a block away.
Perfect location in Copacabana
Great location in Copacabana. 2 blocks from the beach, about a 15 min walk to Ipanema. The doorman to the building was very nice and check-in/out was a piece of cake. The large patio was perfect for lounging at the end of the day, and the apartment itself was very spacious.
Only downside was that the 3rd bathroom was under construction when we arrived, and with 6 women staying there, we opted for this place specifically for the 3rd bathroom.
Be sure to use the fans in the apartment as it was very humid outside and could make the place seem muggy!
Thank you for the review and the compliments about Penthouse 1301.
I apologize for the inconvenience of not having a shower in one of the bathrooms.....it was an unavoidable emergency.
Unfortunately, the shower door was accidentally broken 3 days before the client arrival and the new custom door was not delivered on time. We were expecting to have it installed but was out of our control. It was not a planned renovation but an accidentally broken shower door. The toilet and double sink were in excellent working condition.
Penthouse 1301 has 52 five star reviews and we strive for excellence.
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.
There is a new 24-hour bistro, Magu, just across the street. Great food, 24-hour service and up-scale decor.
