Where you’ll be

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Ocean Park, Santurce

Situated in the ♡ of San Juan’s Food & Art District, only a few steps from the beach, you can't wish for a better location to experience Puerto Rico like a local.

Within walking distance are cozy cafes, delicious restaurants, fresh fruit stands, a yoga studio, a farmer’s market, grocery stores, boutiques, surf shops, hair and beauty salons, just to name a few. Rent a bike or walk to Condado, a highly touristic area packed with even more restaurants, spas and shops.

The Historical Old San Juan is a 10 minute uber ride and so is the airport. Staying in in our neighborhood, you will enjoy more of a local flair than the typical tourist experience.

Stephan is the owner and co-founder of The Dreamcatcher, an award-winning vegetarian boutique hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico and Dreamers Welcome, a Victorian home turned boutique hotel in the heart of historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Stephan also owns several short-term rental properties in Puerto Rico, each with its own unique branding and style. All his spaces share the same ideology - they are design focused, hyper-curated spaces with a laid-back sense of luxury. He has over twenty years of hospitality and 10 years of real estate experience under his belt.

Born and raised in Germany, Stephan graduated with two degrees - one in hospitality management and one Bachelors in applied media sciences. He later worked in several German TV productions as an assistant director. Stephan eventually moved to New York City in 2008 where he worked with an independent film company on a documentary about the Grassroots Campaign of Barack Obama.

In mid-2008, before the advent of Airbnb, Stephan began renting rooms in his apartment to German tourists and students - this started his long affiliation into the nascent world of short-term rentals. Having the foresight of a business opportunity, Stephan was able to acquire another apartment and kept renting them out to tourists and students. In 2011, when Airbnb became popular in New York, his apartments were one of the first listings on the platform.

Having developed a love for furnishing and renting his apartments, Stephan acquired his real estate license and started working with top producers at real estate firms. While handling all aspects of residential real estate, he also began staging apartments for sale. Every apartment Stephan staged sold quickly. Other agents in his firm noticed and hired him to stage apartments for them. Realizing his passion for staging, Stephan went on to start his own staging company which was quite successful.

In 2013, Stephan traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico and instantly fell in love with the island. He realized the untapped potential of the real estate market in San Juan. Stephan bought his first property in San Juan, remodeled it, and started a 7-room short-term rental for travelers which expanded into a vegan boutique hotel named The Dreamcatcher.

The Dreamcatcher has landed media coverage in print and broadcast outlets, including New York Magazine, Forbes, National Geographic, Condé Nast Traveler, Vice Magazine, and The New York Times, to mention a few. The hotel has also received multiple awards, and it's also one of San Juan’s most highly rated hotels. The Dreamcatcher has over 1,800 positive reviews, and is recognized worldwide as a top travel destination.

In 2018, Stephan bought a property in Wilmington, North Carolina - a Victorian house located in historic downtown Wilmington. He thoughtfully designed and conceptualized the property into a boutique hotel named Dreamers Welcome. This boutique hotel has garnered the attention of A-list celebrities, artists, and actors who find themselves in the city shooting their next project and are looking for the perfect short-term home during their stay.

Stephan has further expanded his business from one boutique hotel to 40 short-term rental units in 2021, including Mood Haus, DaDaJaJa, Casa Frida and Tropicalia Village. He is currently working on bringing Dreamers Welcome to Puerto Rico and adding 20 more keys to his business by 2022.
