The Space


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!

Guest Access

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This bungalow made our vacation. Not only is the bungalow and space beautiful, from the fabulous pool to beautiful breakfast patio, but Trish is the most gracious hostess and makes you feel right at home. We knew the trip would be great when she greeted us with ice cold beers in mason jars. She told us all the place to go in town, and not to go which is invaluable when traveling. The bungalows are a short walk to town and the beach and provide a lovely escape in the heat of the day to rest in the hammock, cook a nice lunch in the fully equipped, clean and awesome outdoor kitchen or laze around in the pool before hitting the beach for a sunset surf session or a cocktail by the sea. We ate most of our dinner on the patio, using the state of the arts grill to cook. Many meals we shared with the awesome people we met staying at the bungalows who quickly became our good friends. Trish and her wonderful boyfriend Claudio ate with us many nights, sharing wonderful stories and delicious food. It could not have been a better experience. I almost forgot to say how fabulous the breakfasts are! Fresh fruit of all kinds, local farmer´s market yogurt, eggs made to order, french toast, coffee cake, traditional costa rican breakfast of rice and beans with eggs and salsa..... the list goes on. After surfing for hours each morning this breakfast kept me full till dinner often. Trish´s dogs are wonderful as well and only enhance the vacation. Parker and Stella are sweet, well behaved and great to have around. I can´t thank Trish enough for what was one of the best vacations of my life. Her hospitality and generosity exceeds any hotel or establishment I have ever stayed at and I have traveled many place in different parts of the world. I know I will have to go back because I miss Trish and the tranquil bungalows very much! Don´t even bother to look past the bungalows because you won´t find any better than this.

  • Hi Trish I wanted to thank u for providing such a great place to experience tamarindo...the location of the bungalow and your unintrusive style of letting us be.. was what allowed us too experience the town on our own but if we needed some advice you were there with suggestions thanks for (email hidden)arting off each day with a breakfast made things much easier and cheaper that was awsome...having a dive instructer there made it real simple and easy too set up a scuba dive...the pool was nice bonus too wake up in the morning or cool off after the beach !...Christina and I had a wonderful time and it was a pleasure staying there and meeting everyone...James

  • Greg and I stayed at Beach Bungalows in March 2014 and were absolutely delighted with this little gem. Our preference is smaller places that have personality and character and arriving at BB's was like coming home. Our host Trish was everything you could ask for...welcoming,hospitable and eager to make our stay memorable but more importantly she has the ability to make you feel like an "old friend." You don't often get that feeling when traveling but we sensed it as soon as we arrived!! It's a place where you can kick back, relax and be yourself.

    They are well located, a short walk to the beach, restaurants and local nightlife.
    Our days started with scrumptious breakfasts and endearing conversations!!

    A vacation is only as good as the experiences you have and the people you meet and we were missing Beach Bungalow's and Trish and her gang as soon as we left!!

    Thank you for a fantastic stay Trish. YOU are one of the reasons we travel!!!
    We hope to be back one day!

  • The Beach Bungalows were an amazing place to begin our Costa Rican adventure! Trish, Claudio, Matteo, and the rest of the team are welcoming hosts who can help you with anything you need to plan. Before we even got to Tamarindo, Trish arranged transportation from the airport.

    The Bungalows themselves were beautiful. You will get the paradise atmosphere with the comfort of home. You can't beat the homemade breakfast! The location is also perfect, an easy walk to either the beach or downtown with shops and restaurants. We hope to return someday!

  • Staying at the Beach Bungalows was such a treat. Everything was amazing! Such a warm and inviting place. The bungalows are a little Slice of heaven. Not to mention Trish even managed to arrange as a SUPRISE to my daughter on her 8th birthday that there was a cake on board the catamaran tour we took, totally went above and beyond anything they had to do for us. Your would be missing out not to spend your time in Tamarindo with this amazing family!

  • We had a GREAT time staying with Trish at the Beach Bungalows. The Bungalow was clean and just the right size for us and our things. We also really hanging out in the hammock and bean bag chairs that were underneath our bungalow. Breakfast and the Coffee was the best we had while staying in Costa Rica and Trish was wonderful to let us know about all the best places to eat locally and set us up with a great sunset cruise.

    We will stay again if we find ourselves back in the area!

  • This is by far the best place to stay for the price! The Beach Bungalows themselves are adorable and comfortable. Trish is incredibly sweet! Her and her staff have been super helpful and welcoming; making this place feel like an extension of home. The experience far exceeded our expectations, it's honestly hard to leave this little paradise! We highly recommend it!

  • We loved our stay with Trish. She was so welcoming and warm, and our private bungalow was perfect - just the right combination of comfortable yet rustic that we were looking for. And, her breakfast was delicious and plenty to fortify us for a day on the nearby beach. Thanks, Trish!! We'll be back.

  • Great place to stay in Tamarindo! so close to the beach, restaurants, shops...but so private and peaceful at the same time!
    We stay longer than planned because once there you just feel like home. Bungalows are great, comfy and brand new. Breakfast always tasty and homemade ;)

    Thank you Trish and Claudio, so gently and warm, always willing to help and with great knowledge of the area. It has been a pleasure.

    Hope to be back soon!!

taking a break in sunny Costa Rica
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!
