sleeps 2 | shares bathroom and outdoor shower with two other rooms

Rooms in this category have a full-sized bed and share a bathroom and an outdoor shower with two other rooms. The 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 two 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.

We offer daily vegetarian breakfast and brunch starting at $11.

We offer Yoga Under the Stars nightly and Morning Beach Yoga for $12 pp.

Our therapists offer Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Thai massages starting at $85/hour.

Guests can join our exclusive daily tours offered by our local tour guides. Destinations include El Yunque Rainforest, Gilligan's Island, the Caves, and more. All tours have a two person minimum and must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advanced.


We would be happy to do your laundry for $20/load.

Guest access

The common areas consist of a dining area, lounging areas with rocking 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.

Check in time is 2PM - 10PM

Our regular check-in time is between 2pm and 10pm. You may, however, arrive as early as 8am and use our common areas or head to the beach while we watch your bags. Should you need to check in after 10pm, we ask you to let us know beforehand. There will be a late check-in fee of $25. Check-out is at noon.
At check-in, we will ask you to provide a credit card information (number and expiration date). It is a mere precaution and there will be NO charge to nor hold on your card. Upon check-out, you may to choose to pay your outstanding balance (if any) with any credit card, cash, or a combination of both.

We will provide you with keys to your room and to the house upon check-in. It is your responsibility to return the keys when you check out. Should you lose them or forget to to return them when you check out, there will be a key fee of $30.

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, Maga 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 Maga 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.

Very inspired retreat-like stay in paradise! My flight arrived very early in the morning (before check-in) and I was able to leave my bags at reception and was offered a place to shower/change and gear up for the beach with towels and beach chairs available for guests to use. All common spaces were kept incredibly clean and there were many options for lounging in outdoor hammocks and enjoying the sounds and weather of Puerto Rico. The area is extremely safe and the house is one block from the beach. If you get to the beach early, it's like having your own private beach! Absolutely amazing and I will most definitely be back to try some of the other rooms as each is crafted with it's own distinctive style. Also, the outdoor shower experience is a must!

Superb! EVERYTHING about the Dreamcatcher is wonderful, from the decor to yoga classes, from the communal spaces to brunch, from staff, to the Dreamcatcher's proximity to the beach, the outdoor showers and it's location in San Juan. Dare I say...the Dreamcatcher is pretty close to perfection. I did not want to leave. It is truly an oasis, a home away from home and I look forward to staying there again as soon as I can.

The Dreamcatcher is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a relaxing, beautiful spot in San Juan away from the touristy chaos. Super clean, safe, and chill :) Access to the beach is a plus too! Will 100% be back.

The place is beautiful, room is small but enough for 1 person. Wifi in room is a bit spotty because it's the first room and furthest one from the rest. Staff are nice. Hand-drawn map is nice. Not much interaction with host or other guests, ideally it's for couples or friends or families, it's an amazing place to wind down and enjoy alone time. They provide yoga and brunch for cost. Great stay overall :) Would love to come back with someone next time!

Absolutely breathtaking, peaceful and exotic. I had a great time staying at this original oasis tucked away in Puerto Rico. Just steps from the beach, this dreamy space is just steps away from the beach. My stay here was very relaxing and the staff was very helpful. They even helped me with a map and food recommendations with my phone broke. Stephan and Sylvia went above and beyond to accommodate me. Everyone is so welcoming and it would be hard not to enjoy your stay. I am so grateful I found this space and will definitely be returning.

Sylvia And Stephan User ProfileSylvia And Stephan is a superhost.

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….
