Travelers today are ever more inclined to stay at homes and bed and breakfasts than at larger, more corporate hotels.
On a recent trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico, we stumbled upon what seemed too good to be true. A small hotel that resembles a home, feels like home, and is tucked away from the city center. The Dreamcatcher Guest House came to us by word of mouth and we almost want to keep the secret to ourselves.
Located steps away from the beach at Ocean Park, the Dreamcatcher Guest House could not be better situated. Ocean Park is a gated community about 10 minutes from Old San Juan. Staying outside the old quarter will add an extra layer of excitement and local flair to your trip. Do rent a car and explore the surroundings.
Health-conscious travelers thrive at at Dreamcatcher, where vegetarian communal breakfasts are served every morning and yoga, meditation, and quiet time is highly encouraged. The intimate two-year-old guest house put relaxation in high regards, from its location in a quiet, residential seaside neighborhood to the hammocks hanging in unexpected corners, and the flower-filled garden dotted with buddha statuettes.
All ten rooms are furnished with handpicked vintage-themed pieces from local markets. While bathrooms are shared, guests are considerate for the most part. Enjoy your personal hammock and balcony, the staff isn’t bad either.
