Awesome! Wonderful! The place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Great local for Puerto Rico Freefall Festival

  • 5 of 5

• Beautiful house, located at the end of a dead end street right next to the water. The house is situated on a roundabout at the end of the street which services both properties at the end of the street (Joy owns both). This is very beneficial because the roundabout can be closed off by a chain. This keeps sightseers from driving by the property.

• Plenty of space to accommodate 14 people

• Location provided easy access to 22, as well as, shopping, dining and beaches

o 15 min to the Arecibo airport

• The house keeper was extremely accommodating, going so far as to allow us to utilize her shopping club membership to get some great deals on food for the house

• Great help with minor issues:

o We had a door key break and the house keeper was able to provide a replacement very promptly

o The cable and internet were out when we arrived to the house (TV wasn’t a big deal because we never watched it). The outage ended up being a connection at the telephone pole. Joy and the house keeper were extremely helpful and promptly arranged for the service to be brought back online.

Thanks again, Joy!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Rob. I love having the parachuters every year! But I don't own both houses...the other is my brother-in-laws...but we help each other out and Mari, the house keeper, does too. So glad you enjoyed the house, and I look forward to having some more Freefallers next year!

Authentic beach house, perfect for children!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Glad this February. We rented the bottom floor, which was enough for 4 adults and 2 young children.

Strengths are in the authentic beach house feel and the cutest décor; large living area and kitchen, with huge dining table; lots of games, puzzles, and even small rocking chairs for kids, and Joy made sure we had a pack-n-play for our youngest one; AND a private beach! Aside from a few locals fishing we had about a mile of beach all to ourselves! The waves are big and it isn't manicured sandy beaches like the resorts, but who wants that? The rocks and tide pools are perfectly placed so that our little ones could splash around in the tide pools safely, and try to catch crabs, small fish, and critters.They absolutely loved it.

One draw-back is that despite the authentic beach house feel, the town is not a "beach" or "surf" town. Hatillo is very commercial. We were probably two blocks from a very commercial area, which was convenient, especially needing to run to get this and that, but not what you picture when you think of a "beach town." We couldn't find a place to eat ocean-side. We made a day trip to Isabella, Jobes Beach, which was great, and a day trip to the waterfalls in San Sebastian, which we recommend! We had been to Rincon before which is also a great town. Overall, this was a great value and great price with an authentic adorable home.

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.
