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.

Rule 2. Have fun!
The beach bungalows are absolutely spectacular!!! Not only are the bungalows adorable and comfortable they are also conveniently located. Just a few minutes walk to the beach or to town center. Trish is amazing!!! The trip would not have been the same without her! You can trust all of her advice, just do what she tells you to do and you will have the best vacation ever! The breakfast every morning is phenomenal. Every day we were filled with anticipation for the next mornings breakfast! I can't possibly say enough about how wonderful Trish and the bungalows are. Just go! You will have a great time! (Oh it looks exactly like the pictures, It is very accurately depicted and it is very clean.)
We loved staying here! Beautiful houses and beautiful well maintained grounds. The included breakfast was a great value and delicious and fun. Trish also provides great recommendations for enjoying the town. The location in town was perfect for walking around. Loved her two dogs as well. I would recommend any of my friends or family to stay here!
Trish was an exceptional host. As soon as you arrive it is exactly as the pictures look. We were welcomed with a cold glass of beer and friendly faces of all the staff. She set up any excursions that we wanted to go on and had the greatest experience with each. She gave us a map with all the great places to eat and go out to which were all spot on. Breakfast every morning was amazing and we meet a lot of very nice people staying there as well. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
What an amazing experience at the Beach Bungalows! My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time throughout our stay in Tamarindo thanks in large part to Trish and her Beach Bungalow family. After a miserable 5 hour shuttle from La Fortuna, Trish was there to greet us with a smile and ice cold beers to get us back into the vacation mentality. She gave us the local Tamarindo rundown of recommendations of things to do and places to eat which we followed religiously. Not one disappointment in anything that she told us and most were beyond our expectations. We were so happy to have someone that we could trust and talk to rather than having to attempt to figure it out on our own and being disappointed.
While we explored the beaches and restaurants of Tamarindo, our favorite thing to do most days and nights was to just chill at the Bungalows- they were that great. From floating in the pool, to reading in the hammock to talking story with Trish and fellow guests - just an amazing relaxing atmosphere to be in. We absolutely recommend the Beach Bungalows to anyone out there looking for a place to stay in Tamarindo. We already miss Trish and her wonderful Family (Claudio, Edwin, the dogs - Stella and Parker, and Maria). Pura Vida!

Splendid stay! Trish and Claudio were lovely hosts. When my girlfriend and I arrived, Trish and Claudio gave us a comprehensive catalogue of all the best places to eat and visit in Tamarindo. Their recommendations were spot on, and included places we might have otherwise skipped.
The property itself is well-kept and beautiful and looks as it does in the pictures. The cabanas are well-equipped (they just installed ceiling fans), pretty inside, and offer sufficient privacy.
My girlfriend and I really looked forward to the breakfasts -- we heard from other guests that everyday, it's something new, and we soon lamented the fact we were only there two days.
Great pool. Even better location: five to fifteen minutes walk of essentially everywhere in the city you could go.
Also, I left my Kobo there when moving on to Nicaragua. Within one day, I had a message from Trish asking to what address she could send it. While I didn't want to burden her with the cost of doing so (it was an old kobo), the fact that she even offered spoke volumes.
I would highly recommend staying here, and may even try to mobilize eight people next year to visit Tamarindo and rent out all the cabanas on the property.
Trish's beach bungalow was the perfect paradise get away! From the moment we arrived, Trish was welcoming and full of information. She gave us excellent suggestions on local cuisine and day trips. Our breakfasts were delicious and constantly changing (my favorite was the traditional Coast Rican breakfast). The location was also perfect, only 5-10 minutes walking to almost any place in town.
The best vacation I have ever had!! Claudio and their staff were very accommodating and took great care of us. We were the only couple (website hidden) was us and two of the best dogs ever ( Parker and Stella). The beach was amazing! The sunsets were breathtaking! The food was fantastic . Go to Panga and the Green Papaya! I could go on and on . Just an outstanding !!

About the Host, Trish
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!
