The Sanctuary is our personal favorite! These spacious rooms come with a private terrace, a queen bed, a hammock or hanging chair and a full outdoor bathroom. Sink, Shower and Toilet are outdoors but fully roofed and private. All rooms are equipped with A/C, cotton sheets, soap, bath and beach towels, iron, and a blow dryer. There is also a Dreamcatcher to protect your sleep and entice sweet dreams.
We have three rooms in this category and each one is decorated individually in a special theme. While the decor in each room is unique, the amenities are the same.
The Dreamcatcher is a gorgeous and intimate guest house located just two blocks from the beach in Ocean Park, 10 minutes away from the historical Old San Juan and the airport.
It is thoughtfully decorated with mostly vintage furniture and collectibles. The house holds beauty and memories alike, every corner tells a story. The Dreamcatcher is a true oasis with many areas to find privacy as well as to come together with other guests and friends.

On Thursdays, we hold our Salsa event including a sangria cocktail hour, a salsa lesson, and live music for $35 pp.
We would be happy to do your laundry for $12/load.
The common areas consist of a dining area, lounging areas with hanging chairs and hammocks, a sun deck, a spacious living room that opens to the garden, and two fully equipped communal kitchens. The garden is protected by dozens of Buddhas, who quietly sit among the fruit trees, fountains, and in between the flowers.

QUIET HOURS 10 PM - 8 AM
We pride ourselves on being a quiet and relaxing retreat. During quiet hours, communal kitchens are closed and we do not allow noisy gatherings or loud music.
While the Dreamcatcher is the only vegetarian guest house in Puerto Rico, we keep our communal kitchens pescatarian. This means that seafood is permitted. We do, however, strictly prohibit the preparation of red meat and chicken.
Please be considerate of other guests and wash the dishes you used. We provide tea, coffee, oils & spices, as well as assigned shelves in the fridges for you to store your groceries.
Sometimes, Pippa and Malda, two very well-behaved golden retrievers, will be at the house. They love people and they want to love you and be loved in return. We understand that not everyone is comfortable with dogs, so please let us know, if you do not want them to approach you.
We ask you not to feed them as this promotes unwanted behavior and may, in certain cases, even be harmful to Pippa and Malda.
Being located close to the beach, sand is one of our main challenges. We ask you to shake the sand off your beach towels before entering the house. At the main entrance, there is also a shower for you to remove the sand from your feet.
The books at the Dreamcatcher are for everyone to enjoy, but please do not take them with you. Some of these books have been in our family for years and are precious memories. If there is one particular book you really like, please talk to Sylvia regarding a possible Book Exchange.

My name is Stephan, born and raised in Germany I moved to NYC in 2008 where I started a career in residential real estate. Not long after that I discovered my true passion: creating and curing spaces. In 2012 I founded my own interior design company but it didn't take long and I fell in love again.. this time with Puerto Rico. Finally I moved to the island in 2013. Together with Sylvia, I built this place called "The Dreamcatcher", a childhood dream come true.
A Message from Sylvia:
One of the most important things that I have learned from my mother and grandmother was the importance of creating a special place for yourself, your family and friends. A home that holds beauty and memories, a space that it is alive. Have every corner tell a story and decorate it with little reminders of where you come from. Make it a home that provides a sanctuary for the special people in your life.
The first time I had my own place I realized how important it was for me to create a little oasis. I still have books, drapes and furniture from my small house in Sarasota, where I went to school at the time. I must have had 25 more places after that and each one of them was like an empty canvas to rearrange my memories with objects I had collected over time.
After 15 years away, life looped me back home to Puerto Rico. I reconnected with the wisdom and love of my grandmother and not to forget all her simple yet beautiful vintage furniture, which now serve as comfort and decoration at the Dreamcatcher.
This is our home, and while you are here, yours as well….
