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.

While we love children, this property is not ideally suited for children due to the open pool area and bungalow stairs.
Rule 1. Please be sure to contact us at (email hidden) with your expected time of arrival so we are sure to leave the beach in time to greet you!
Rule 2. Have fun!
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.
We stayed for 9 days, and it was amazing. Welcomed with a cold beer, two friendly dogs, and the bungalows/site were exactly as described. Great breakfast every day, very helpful and friendly staff. Close walk to the main town and beach. Pool refreshing, on site BBQ and kitchen was really handy as well. Very accommodating setting us up for breakfast on the days we had early excursions. Trishs' recommended spots in town were all spot on, tasty food and coffee. Wouldn't have had it any other way. Would love to go back sometime!
Trish and her team were great! Can't say enough. Leading up to the trip she was very helpful and when we arrived from the airport she greeted us with ice cold beers and gave us the insider low down to Tamarindo. We had an amazing and unique experience shared with the other couples who stayed there from around the globe. So much better than staying in a resort. Breakfast was always amazing. Trish and Eloisa were so helpful in organizing shuttles and suggesting day trips. We took a trip to Monte Verde and they helped set up everything smoothy. Beach Bungalows is a hi recommend and hopefully we'll be back!
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.

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!
