THE HOUSE
This gorgeous and intimate Guest House is located right at the beach in the gated community of Ocean Park, only 10 minutes away from the Historical Old San Juan and the airport.

The Dreamcatcher 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.

The common areas consist of a dining room, two lounging areas with rocking chairs and hammocks. A spacious living room that opens to the garden as well as a fully equipped Communal Kitchen. The garden is protected by dozens of Buddha’s, which quietly sit among the fruit trees, the water fountain and in between the flowers. In addition there is an edible garden in the front of the house with fruits, vegetables and herbs, where guests are welcome to help themselves. 

Every room is decorated with a Dreamcatcher to protect your sleep and entice sweet dreams.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
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.

HOUSE SERVICES
MASSAGES
We have very loving and talented massage therapist that will come to the house.

YOGA CLASSES
There are some teachers that will come to teach yoga at night time and we gather around the lemon tree in the garden. Classes are subject to weather and will be posted on the easel in the lounge. All classes are by suggested donation.

DANCE CLASSES
Frequently we organize Salsa Classes at the House. Private Dance classes (various styles) can be arranged.

DINNERS
Few times a month dinner parties are planned, usually accompanied of local musicians, called bohemias. These are gatherings where street musicians come together to play latin classics.

KOMBUCHA & JUICING
We offer freshly pressed vegetable & fruit juices as well as home-grown kombucha for $8 a drink.

LAUNDRY
We are happy to do a load of laundry for you. Each load is $12.00.

YOUR HOSTS
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 almost 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...

  • That was such a cool experience! I just spent 4 nights at the Dreamcatcher..., my first time staying in a guest house. It was very different than a hotel.. I was travelling alone so really appreciated having other people around ... it was kind of like a reality TV show except all the people are friendly, helpful and nice to each other!!!

    The space is exactly like the pictures ... the creativity that went into it is very impressive. Sylvia is truly an artist. She was also a wonderful host who gave me lots of advice on the best spots to visit. I would certainly stay there again and recommend to others. The rooms are all different so I'd say pick yours based on the level of privacy you desire. The Gallery room was facing the road and some light came in at night. I slept very soundly so it was no problem for me.

    Thank you Sylvia and Stephan!! Also, Darien's breakfast was yummy too!

  • Great B and B. :) loved it

    February 2014
  • Sylvia has a charming, open guesthouse two blocks from the beach. I felt like I was staying in someone's home rather than a hotel, and Sylvia treated her guests like they were her friends. She was always available to answer questions and provide tips on places to go in the city. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to others.

  • Gorgeous place and nice location. The only regret we had: only stay one night! We wish we could have stay longer!

  • The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • The dreamcatcher is a great relaxing place to stay. We fully enjoyed all the great people we met and hosts. Plus the two cuddly dogs. Will def stay here again.

  • I had an excellent experience here at Sylvia and Stephan's Dreamcatcher guesthouse! I got in late because of major flight delays from St. Thomas and they were very accommodating and welcoming. The place is beautiful and very serene. It is clear that a lot of love went into creating this place and it is very peaceful. I would certainly return and recommend to others!

  • Great place in a safe, convenient location right next to the beach. Sylvia was a great host and the atmosphere was unique and comfortable. Just what we were looking for.

  • Dreamcatcher bills itself as a natural yoga retreat, and it is exactly that. It has a strong community feel there, and the people you meet will invariably be interesting. This is about as far as you can get from posh hotel stays, and that's a good thing.

    Its location puts it right next to a nice beach, and easy walking distance of both the tourist area of San Juan and also a lot of up and coming local stores. Dreamcatcher offers a map of their suggested places to go, and you would do well to give it proper attention.

    Sylvia and Stephan have a good strength of vision about Dreamcatcher, so you can see what it is and what it's becoming. Going (2014) now has a nice advantage of seeing the place itself grow.

  • Absolutely wonderful! I was in San Juan for five days with my beau and I could not have asked for a better location and friendlier host. We stayed in the Menorca room instead of the Country room due to reservation conflicts but either way, it was amazing! Every niche is decorated with beautiful designs, ornaments, and plants of all sizes. As described, the neighborhood is safe and the beach is two blocks away! I definitely recommend staying at the Dreamcatcher House if anyone is visiting San Juan.
