The Beach Bungalows is a cozy alternative hotel consisting of four raised bungalows built of local, sustainably-grown teak surrounding a palm-fringed swimming pool, conveniently located near the beach. Each bungalow is fitted upstairs with a queen-size bed, ceiling fan, in-room fridge, full bath with shower, and a safe box for guest valuables. On the lower level, each bungalow has its own personal lounge area near the pool, with day beds or hammocks on a teak deck where you can relax after a fun-filled day!
In an effort to reduce energy consumption, we decided not to install televisions or air conditioners in the bungalows, but there is a comfortable common area with a/c and a flat screen cable tv in the event your favorite team has a match you just can't miss! We also have free wi-fi on the property, real hot showers, a refreshing pool, and a common kitchen area and bbq grill for guest use. Come kick off your flip flops, stay with us and enjoy all Tamarindo has to offer. Our friendly labradoodle Parker may even bring you a beer if you ask her nicely!
The Beach Bungalows provides its guests with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience beautiful Tamarindo. Close to restaurants, bars, boutiques, and grocery stores and only a few minutes’ walk to the beach, the Beach Bungalows provides a real "get away" feel, with its unique garden setting and visiting monkeys.
In our continuing efforts to be "green," we also use a state of the art water treatment system that allows gray water to be used for irrigation, helping to conserve precious resources, and a water purification system that makes the water from all taps drinkable.
Whether you want to scuba dive, surf the day away, zipline or just take in the sun, Beach Bungalows is the perfect spot to be! We can help you book your adventures and then provide you a comfortable spot to relax at the end of an amazing day. With our magic jack connection, guests can make free calls to the US and Canada.
Let our intimate tropical setting with just four custom bungalows be the base for your Costa Rican adventure!
In addition to their private bungalows, guests will have access to our bbq and common kitchen area, dining patio, television room, laptop with wifi, beach bicycles, pool, and beach towels.

We had an AMAZING experience at the Beach Bungalows. Trish was so welcoming and had amazing tips on the best restaurants & happy hours & fun activities to recommend. Delicious homemade breakfasts in the morning & hanging out with her sweet dogs Parker & Stella made our stay even more special. Can't recommend the Beach Bungalows highly enough if you're looking somewhere fabulous & affordable to stay in Tamarindo.
Beach Bungalows is a wonderful property within walking distance to everything Tamarindo has to offer but up on the hill so you are set back a bit from the constant traffic along the beach and main street.
The property is beautiful and the room was perfect. I especially loved the hammock and set up downstairs.
The best part of staying here though, was Trish, Claudio and her staff. I was travelling alone and Trish and Claudio made me feel so welcome and a part of their family. Trish knows everything about what Tamarindo and this part of CR has to offer. All of her recommendations were spot on.
I will return to this property again and again. They treated me so well.
Trish met us at the Bungalows after a long drive on our end from La Fortuna with a cold beer and plenty of great advice about our time in Tamarindo. She and everyone at the Beach Bungalows was so nice and helpful. We had a group of four girls, and stayed in two bungalows. The bungalows were the perfect size, with lots of great details that made the most of the space. We loved having the sitting area below our bungalows for relaxing before breakfast (which was delish every morning), or after our day in the sun. We all fell in love with the Bungalows, and would without a doubt chose them over any other place we saw while in Tamarindo.
Great place from the start with a free check in cervasa while we were shown around. The rooms were great privite but a nice and social around the pool and around the breakfast table. The crew was very helpful in guiding us around town and the best places to eat and hang out, they also called around and for recommendations from friend on good places to stay when we moved on.
After a long drive. It felt like paradise. It was more then I expected. And I wish I stayed for longer time.
Trish was very helpful and gave us map of tamarindo and marked all the places we should go and not. If I ever find my self back in Costa Rica. I'll be sure to stay there again.
Trish was a great host! She made me feel welcome and had some great suggestions for what to do and eat in Tamarindo. The accommodations surpassed my expectations!
The Beach Bungalows was an amazing stay for my bf and I in Tamarindo. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by their lovely staff. We were even offered a beer upon arrival along with some ice when our beers warmed. They have two very friendly and adorable dogs. Maria makes you a delicious breakfast in the morning. The location was great too, just a few short minutes from the beach and the center of town. Our only regret is that we didn't stay here for our entire duration in Tamarindo. If we ever visit this town again.. I will for sure stay here again!

I love travelling, new adventures, my dogs, and getting to know people from different places around the world. While taking a break from my legal career, I wound up in Costa Rica taking surf and Spanish lessons and fell in love with the beautiful beaches, amazing surf, fabulous scuba diving, and wonderful people!! After several months in Tamarindo, I decided to look for my own piece of paradise and knew as soon as I saw it that the Beach Bungalows was the place for me. I would love to have a chance to share this magical place with you!
