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.

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 !!
My husband and I had a fabulous experience. Everyone was so nice from the minute we got there. We were given some awesome recommendations of what to do and where to eat. The hammocks and pool were very relaxing and we spent many nights reading in the hammocks. Amazing time!
My husband & I loved staying at the Beach Bungalows with Trish! Trish & her staff (Edwin + Carol) did an amazing job making us feel welcome and making sure we had everything we needed... including providing us with a cold beer the minute we arrived! The breakfast every morning was incredible, and the property is well-maintained, clean, and inviting. Trish provided wonderful recommendations about local spots for food in Tamarindo. The staff helped provide us with beach chairs, coolers, bikes, any many other little added bonuses to make our beach outings more comfortable. We loved the bungalows and the fun community feel they provided in getting to know fellow travelers. I would definitely recommend this spot to any of our family & friends! Thank you Trish for making our stay in Tamarindo so enjoyable!
We had a great stay at the beach bungalows. The location was ideal ...tucked away from the center of town but within a ten minute walk from the beach. The place was clean and well kept. Trish was an amazing host who went above and beyond our expectations. She guided us to the best restaurants and activities to do while we were in town. My girlfriend has some dietary restrictions and was not planning on mentioning anything so as not to be a bother but as soon as Trish and her team heard, they went out of their way each day to make sure she was taken care of. Something we would have never expected. Highly recommend staying at the Beach Bungalows if you're looking for an amazing place in Tamarindo.
Had an absolutely fantastic stay with Trish and Claudio. A cold beer and a warm welcome began an incredibly relaxing stay. Interesting to note that Trish is a yale educated lawyer who decided to buy a B+B and live a better life. Her professional experience and customer service is clear in every way she runs the hostel. Trish was a great host - make sure you sit down with her and listen to her restaurant reccomendations, because they were all spot on! We ate so well due to her suggestions. Beach Bungalows is a great place to come home after a long day on the beach or a long night out. It is close enough to town to walk, but far enough to be away from the noise. The pool and lounge areas are perfect, the breakfast was amazing, and having access to the complimentary cruiser bikes was an added plus (they are $10/day to rent in town). There was a safe in the room, although I never locked my room once and never felt unsafe. The bed was comfy and I slept great every night. If I ever come to Tamarindo again, I will be back! Thanks Trish.

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!
