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.

Interaction with Guests
Between 7am-12am, we will be at the house and assist with all of your questions and concerns.
This beautiful neighborhood of Ocean Park is one of the very few areas in San Juan where you find direct access to the beach without having High Rises surrounding you.
All in walking distance you have cozy cafes, amazing restaurants, fresh fruit stands, a yoga studio, a farmer’s market, grocery stores, boutiques, surf shops, hair- and beauty salons, only to name a few..
It is a very safe neighborhood and from our house it's only a 10-minute walk to Condado and Isla Verde, both highly touristic areas packed with even more restaurants, spas and shops. The Historical Old San Juan is a 10 minutes car ride and so is the airport.
Staying in Ocean Park, you will enjoy more of a local flair than a mass tourism experience. We at the Dreamcatcher Guest House have made a map of the area with our recommendations for your convenience.
Within San Juan, limited public transportation is available. However, we recommend to rather rent bikes or use cabs since the bus system can be very frustrating to use. Outside the metropolitan area, public transport is virtually non-existent and you will need to either rent a car a book a tour that includes transport.
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
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.
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.
I have been working as an interior designer and movie set decorator for over 10 years and for a long time it has been on my 'TO DO' list to create a space that I can share in a more personal manner with people. During the time when I lived in New York City, Puerto Rico became the perfect spot for me to go on vacation and when I moved back to the island I created this space so you can enjoy a perfectly relaxing vacation in the Caribbean.
The house is decorated with mostly vintage furniture that I have gotten from my grandmother, mother, friends and from past movie sets. The style is eclectic and fun, every corner tells a story and there are plenty of areas to enjoy privacy.
It's been about two years since I started to share my home with visitors and friends and since then the space has grown in a beautiful organic manner. Every single visitor has been part of this process, leaving behind a memory and their beautiful energy as part of the many layers that create this home.
A few months ago a wonderful visitor Stephan arrived at the house and a very beautiful friendship and journey started. Together we are now continuing and growing the Dreamcatcher Project and would like you to also be a part of it!
We share the house with Pippa and Malda, two amazing golden retrievers that will receive you wagging their tails every time.
We like to...
GO TO THE BEACH which is only a 1 minute from the house!
...and did we mention EATING? lol
