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.

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.
Interaction with Guests
Between 7am-12am, we will be at the house and assist with all of your questions and concerns.
Staying at the Dreamcatcher, you will enjoy a truly Puerto Rican experience away from the typical tourist traps. The beautiful neighborhood of Ocean Park is very unique in that it is located right on the beach. Ocean Park is gated and there are no safety concerns in the general area.
Within walking distance, there are countless cozy cafes, amazing restaurants, fresh fruit stands, a yoga studio, a farmers' market, grocery stores, boutiques, surf shops, and hair- and beauty salons, to name a few.
It is a very safe neighborhood and from our house it is 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.
We will have a map ready for you with many recommendations you can easily reach on foot.
Within San Juan, public transportation is available. A bus takes you to the Old City for only 75 cents a ride. However, we recommend to rather rent bikes or use cabs since the bus system is not the most reliable. 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. Cabs operate 24/7 and we are happy to schedule them for you.
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.
