Dreamers Welcome was founded by a real estate entrepreneur and a self-taught artist who began their journeys in Germany and Puerto Rico. After crossing paths in the City that Never Sleeps they realized their shared passion for curating unique designer rentals in beautiful locales where you can, in fact, sleep--and sleep well--ready to take on a rejuvenating day of sun, sand, and joie-de-vivre in the morning.
Stephan Watts' first short-term rentals in New York City were some of the very first listings for Airbnb. Born and raised in Germany, Watts graduated with dual degrees in hospitality management and applied media services. After moving to New York, Watts acquired a real estate license and began his own apartment-staging company, quickly gaining over two decades of hospitality experience. His love for designing and sharing living spaces has blossomed into a stunning suite of over 60 rental units from North Carolina to Puerto Rico. In San Juan, Watts' vegetarian boutique hotel, DREAMCATCHER, has received many awards and gained attention from New York Magazine, Forbes, National Geographic, Condé Nast Traveler, Vice Magazine, and The New York Times. Always on the move, Watts is forever on the cusp of re-envisioning the next unsuspecting space into something uncommon and extraordinary.

In addition to art, design, and music video production, Roy breathes life and movement into every Dreamers Welcome space--flooding the floors, walls, kitchens, and hallways with striking artwork, warm textures, and delicate detail.
