Romantic Getaway with Spectacular Views + private pool
1 Bdrm / 1 Bath
Stay at Casa Soleada (Sunny House) and enjoy soaring views, a private swimming pool, and the pleasure of a comfortable, well-equipped home that is decorated to celebrate the colors of the Caribbean!
Casa Soleada is in Humacao, a community only a 45-minute drive from San Juan’s International Airport (SJU) on Puerto Rico’s tropical east coast. Our home sits more than 1000 feet above sea level, overlooking an 180-degree view of the Caribbean and nearby mountains. As you sit by the pool enjoying your favorite drink, you will see eagles gliding below! Look out over the sparkling Caribbean Sea to Vieques Island and on to Culebra and Saint John. This amazing view allows you to see nearly the entire coastline of Eastern Puerto Rico. The surroundings are lush, verdant, and tropical. Palms, flowering bougainvillea, poinsettia, flamboyant, and hibiscus color the hillsides. You can pick grapefruit and oranges from our backyard trees for your breakfast.
Our home comfortably accommodates one or two couples, or small families of five or less in a modern, cheerful, and relaxed tropical setting.
“My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Casa Soleada and we couldn’t have been more delighted. This property is perfect for anyone seeking privacy, amazing views and a wonderful swimming pool all to themselves. The pictures don’t show it justice but trust me, as an old travel agent myself, this property is special. Very special. It was amazing to wake up every morning and be able to get in the private pool three feet from the side door. The home is spotless, bright, and very airy. My husband can tell you that I didn’t stop smiling from the moment we got there until we had to leave and return to the cold dampness of upstate NY. If we could, we’d go back tomorrow!” — Lisa B., Battenville, NY
TOUR THE HOUSE
The interior of Casa Soleada was recently redecorated to reflect the fun and color of the Caribbean. San Juan gold, tropical green and deep sea blue make each room a stimulating experience. The gracious porch provides a shady retreat mid-moring to dusk while providing the perfect place to relax and take in the spectacular view. A tiled bathroom is equipped with modern fixtures and showers. In the comfortable well-ventilated bedroom and sleeping area, all beds are new. Five ceiling fans supplement the wonderful tropical breezes that cool the home, making it comfortable all day long. House has ample parking, and a large yard with citrus, palm and flowering trees. If in season, feel free to pick your morning grapefruit and oranges.
FULLY-EQUIPPED KITCHEN WITH MODERN APPLIANCES
There is a full working kitchen and a laundry area. The kitchen includes ample counter space to cook a lavish meal, with cook top range, toaster oven and microwave oven. Coffee maker, toaster, blender and full compliment of dishware, silverware, glassware, pots and pans, and utensils means you can cook lavishly or bring in meals for relaxed private dining. There is also a gas grill for barbequing and a large double door fridge with ice maker for cooled water and drinks as well as travel ice. A small picnic cooler is provided, for day trips, along with beach towels and beach chairs.
ONE PRIVATE BEDROOM + DAYBED AREA
The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, side chairs and built in dresser cabinets for your belongings. Painted tropical green in a faux stucco style, the room opens into the garden through the bedroom’s french doors. The bedroom is cooled by an over head fan. Swing arm lamps provide light for reading in bed on both sides. With the louvred door closed your bedroom becomes a private, romantic hide-away.
Private Infinity Dipping Pool with Views Abound
The generous dipping pool just outside the door offers complete privacy and fantastic views of the Caribbean and surrounding mountains. While you swim look one way and feel like you’re in “Colorado.” Turn your head the other way and see a 20 mile shoreline from Naguabo on the north to Yabucoa in the south. At night, swim under the stars and look out over a thousand lights along the eastern shore of the island. The gradual pool is approximately 4 feet deep with gentle steps down from the deck. Slip in, relax, cool off and enjoy a drink, but be careful…you may never want to leave the house!

The Perfect Mountain Pied-a-Terre in an Ideal Island Location!
“Everything as advertised — the owners are real pros. No problems. The house is like a Puerto Rican version of a loft: big, open, informal, comfortable. Well-equipped and clean. Great infinity pool with spectacular views! Just down the hill to town and beaches — literally minutes away. Humacao is such a great location: you can just drive along Route 3/53 up the east end of the island from Tuna Point to Fajardo and check out all kinds of beaches, beautiful scenery, road-side restaurants with fresh, cheap food and drink. People are friendly and happy to see you.” –Alex, Southhampton, NY
