Fantastic, spacious

  • 5 of 5

I had a group of 13 people, mostly from the Rocky Mountains in Utah. We pulled up and the first thing people said was "this big one is where we are staying?!" Casa Glad had all we needed, and everyone had a bed, so it's good for big groups/families. You are only a few steps from the beach, which is a great spot to hang out and relax. The sand is good, and there is constantly waves rolling in with a nice breeze. As far swimming goes, I would recommend caution. We found out when high tide was and were able to swim ok, but there are some rocks that can be dangerous if you're not careful. They are a little ways out though, so getting in up to your thighs to just relax and enjoy is great. We weren't used to the hot humidity in PR, so it was a little warm. Opening the big doors helped because there was a nice breeze. At night you can turn on small air conditioning units in the bedrooms that are amazing to sleep with.

I had no problems at all with booking or paying, and everything was great when we showed up. The house is kind of in a commercial area, which was good because there are plenty of stores near by. Some great food stands literally right up the street to get "pinchos" (kebabs) or sandwiches, and a nice little cafe called "Delicias" at the top of the street with espresso and great breakfast. Although it is a somewhat commercial area, once you get to the end of the little road where the house is, you're in your own little paradise. The waves, the palm trees (with iguanas and tiny little lizards here and there) the breeze...just so great!

This is a great place if you don't want to be in the middle of San Juan and all the touristy stuff. There are some great things nearby too! Cueva del Indio was really cool, good surfing in Isabella...if you can, take a beautiful drive to San Sebastián and go to Gozalandia Falls, you won't regret it.

All in all, Casa Glad was exactly what my group wanted. I would absolutely recommend this place, especially if you want to get out of San Juan and see a little more of what Puerto Rico has to offer!

Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from an amazing 2 week stay at CASA GLAD! The home is situated on at the end of a small block a top a hill from a beach. Amazing sunrises and sunsets, cool ocean breezes day and night allowing you to enjoy sitting outdoors with family and friends. The large dinning area allowed us to successfully reunite family, enjoy home cooked meals, family game nights, and overall joys of talking and laughing. The home has all you could need for cooking with a huge kitchen where we did our own home cooked puerto rican meals thanks to my husband and his family here on the island, cleaning up after days at the beach, and overall relaxation. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. And we only booked the bottom floor! 😊 There is a rooftop terrace that has amazing views. Up the road from the house is access to all different local foods, supermarkets, etc. We didnt want to leave! Joy was always available for questions etc. Mari the housekeeper is just as great too!

Thank you Joy for the opportunity to stay in your home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Property was clean, spacious, fantastic location, within feet of beach and close to mall and eateries. Owner was wonderful - very attentive and accommodating. The description of this listing is spot on. We're already planning for our next stay. Highly recommended.

Great weekend getaway with private beach

  • 5 of 5

We live in San Juan, but wanted to get out of the city for a weekend. Casa Glad was just the ticket! With a fully-equipped kitchen and close proximity to dining and shopping, we had everything we needed. We spent a quiet weekend watching movies, reading, and walking on the beach. A truly perfect weekend to relax! We would totally recommend this beachfront home to those looking for a quiet getaway on the beach!

Happy :)

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Casa Glad! We rented both the top and bottom floors, and we could have not asked for more. Anything we needed was at our fingertips, and truthfully, if we couldn't find something, it was because we did not look hard enough or we simply didn't need it. This home is truly stocked with all the essentials of home. From the moment we drove up and stepped out of the vehicle, we had an amazing ocean breeze that cooled us immediately. As we turned the key to go inside, we were not disappointed. The home was very clean and had a fresh scent that was welcoming. The bedding and pillows were very clean. Honestly, It has all the amenities we desired, right down to a washer and dryer. We opened all the windows and invited the breeze that greeted us and we never closed the windows until we departed. Packing could wait and we headed down to what seemed our private beach. Found beach chairs in the garage and refreshed ourselves with a few cocktails, beachside of course!! Joy was alway available by phone and it was nice to know if we would have needed something, Mari, Joys housekeeper was only minutes away. We stayed nine days, with each day giving us amazing sunshine and nights that would lull you to sleep, Our only regret, is our stay was not nearly long enough. So looking forward to our next visit Joy. Thanks for a great vacation!!

The uniqueness of this house is it is on the beach and right off the main highway between Arecibo and Hatillo and you can go any where in Puerto Rico; but when your at the house, it's like you are away from it all. You don't hear anything but the ocean. It's a very private beach, that only locals use. The beach house is located very central to see all of Puerto Rico and many tourist attractions: 20 minutes to the Arecibo caves and satellite; 20 minutes to great outlet shopping at Barceloneta; 1 hr to Rincon; 1/2 hr to Dorado and golf, 1 hr to San Juan, 1 hr to Ponce, 1 hr to many diving spots (Crashboat) and all with a scenic drive. The house next door, El Escape, which is perfect to rent both for large family gatherings.
