The Dreamcatcher

2009 Calle Espana Ocean Park, San Juan, 00911 Puerto Rico (Show map)

About

San Juan’s only Vegetarian Guest House is located in the pristine neighborhood of Ocean Park, only 200 steps from the beach. From here it is a 10 minute walk to the highly touristic area of Condado and a short 10 minute ride to the Old City or the airport. Dreamcatcher Guest House was awarded Top 10 International Bed&Breakfast in 2014 and has been rated #1 Guest House in San Juan for three years in a row. 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.

Gorgeous and unique

We never wanted to leave! If you can't afford a room with a full bathroom, splurge for an outdoor shower at least--it made all the difference. Looking back, we wish we had made Dreamcatcher our home base for the entire vacation, striking off for day trips out of San Juan and coming back to the comfort and ultimate style of this boho dream. Live and learn! :)


Dreamcatcher Puerto Rico

5 on February 28, 2016

I had the best time at the Dreamcatcher. I felt very comfortable and safe there. Each room has a different theme. A vegetarian breakfast is offered every morning and a vegetarian dinner once a week. The meals were incredibly delicious. Also the Dreamcatcher has a deal to rent a bike, which I did to explore the island. Just two blocks from the beach and the water was very warm. I would return.


Visited in December

Absolutely fantastic. I loved everything about it. Great neighborhood too. Amazing vegan/vegetarian at Dreamcatcher as well as a few streets away. Nearby Ashtanga Yoga Puerto Rico is awesome too.


Magical, Relaxing stay!

The Dreamcatcher is a top notch B&B. It was a very relaxing place. The grounds were beautifully manicured, the place was immaculate and the staff were all very warm, welcoming and very helpful! If you like charming B&B's and want to escape from the everyday world, this is the place for you! Don't miss it!


Lived up to the Hype

5 on February 26, 2016

The only complain we have is that its barely possible to book a room here as they always seemed to be booked. We tried for 2 years to stay here and finally were able to snatch a room. We loved every minute of it, The decor, the staff, location and omg the breakfast is amazing!!


Outstanding Service and Excellent Breakfast

5 on November 26, 2015

My friend and I stayed at the Dreamcatcher this September and absolutely fell in Love with its Unique and Vintage Decor. The Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Upon arrival we felt immediately at ease and on Vacation Mode. We received a very thorough Tour through the house by Gerrit. We loved Jeromes Breakfast and the Yoga Classes at Night. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfy. We cannot wait to go back!


Nice Stay

4.2 on December 17, 2014

Clean but simple rooms. VERY nice staff. Right next to the best beach we found in PR Vendors actually walk up and down the beach selling food and cold beer at good prices. The only drawback is that you have to taxi or rent a car to go anywhere.Besides the beach everything is a $18.00 cab ride away.

Innkeeper Response
I want to thank you again for staying with us. We are happy you enjoyed your time at the Dreamcatcher. I also want to take this opportunity to inform our upcoming guests about Sylvia's hand-drawn map: a guide of our neighborhood that has so much to offer. It informs and directs you to 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. All in walking distance. It is a safe neighborhood and from our house it's only a 10 minute walk to Condado, a highly touristic area packed with even more restaurants, spas and shops. The Historical Old San Juan is a 10 minutes cab or 30 minutes bus ride. Upon check-in we give all guests a little tour of this map. If we missed to properly inform and guide you through the possibilities of our neighborhood I want to apologize. It is very important to us that while staying at the Dreamcatcher you get to experience an authentic Puerto Rico and to soak in the tropical vibe of our neighborhood. Staying in Ocean Park, you will enjoy more of a local flair than the typical tourist experience. A very Happy New Year from the Dreamcatcher and hopefully see you in 2015!


Moroccan Room at the Dreamcatcher House

5 on December 01, 2013

Our stay at The Dreamcatcher house couldn't have been better... The Moroccan Room was amazing (I'm a big fan of the hammock!) and the communal areas in the house were equally as welcoming and beautifully decorated. The outdoor shower is fantastic. We are instructed to rinse off after the beach to avoid getting sand in the house, but I used the outdoor shower for my daily bathing as well. (I highly recommend evening showers under the stars!) The bi-weekly yoga classes in the garden are truly magical. Great teachers, great energy. Sylvia was the perfect host. Very helpful with planning our vacation! Upon arrival you will receive a map with her recommended restaurants, cafes, shops; places I wouldn't have been able to find on my own! Outstanding first time Airbnb experience! I will definitely be back!! xoxo Sarah


The kind of place you see in travel magazines.

4.0 on November 25, 2013

We actually were upgraded to the Geisha room for our stay at the Dreamcatcher, so we got a bigger room with a shared/private bathroom. Sylvia's friend Sahid picked us up at the airport for a small fee and he got us settled in our room. The Dreamcatcher is like something you would see in a travel magazine. We found ourselves wandering around the house examining all the antiques and items Sylvia has collected over the years. Every time I was in a room I would notice something new I hadn't noticed before. We loved the exposure to the outside, besides the bedrooms every other room was open to the outdoors. The complimentary coffee was a great benefit so we could lounge around the house in the morning, taken in the scenery. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Having an a/c unit was a welcomed pleasure on days it was hot and sticky. The Dreamcatcher rooms each have a neighborhood map with recommendations that was very helpful and small booklet with guidelines. All of the food recommendations we tried were great. During our stay Meeshel was our hostess and she was so friendly and made us feel right at home. We also got massages from her and we both highly recommend taking advantage of the onsite massage therapist. My favorite part about the house was the outdoor shower. It was so nice to shower and look up and see the sky and an avocado tree. We had a good time meeting the guest as well and got to enjoy a community dinner with everyone. We both had such a wonderful time at the Dreamcatcher and hope to return again very soon.


Dream of a stay!
