The Beach Bungalows is a cozy alternative hotel consisting of four raised teak bungalows, conveniently located near the beach. Each bungalow is fitted with a queen-size bed, ceiling fan, mini-fridge, full shower bath, and a safe box for your valuables. On the lower llevel, each bungalow has a personal lounge area near the pool, with daybeds or hammocks perfect for relaxing after a fun day at the beach!
n 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 wi-fi available on the property, a refreshing pool, and a common kitchen area and barbecue 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 Costa Rica. 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.
We also have installed 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 a comfortable spot to relax at the end of an amazing day! And with our magic jack connection, you can make free calls to the US and Canada to tell your friends about your adventures.
Let our intimate tropical setting with just four custom cabinas built from local sustainable teak -- each with a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, an in-room fridge, a safe for your valuables, and a separate outdoor lounge area near the pool with hammocks and day beds or lounge chairs -- be the base for your Costa Rican adventure!
In addition to their private bungalows, guests will have access to our bbq grill and common kitchen area, dining patio, media room with flatscreen tv, netflix and apple tv, free calls to US and Canada via magic jack, free wi-fi throughout, guest laptop, beach bicycles, refreshing pool, and beach towels.

Other Things to Note
We now have ocean kayaks for guest use!
While we love kids, this is not an ideal location 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 arrival time so we can be sure to be back from the beach in time to greet you!
Rule 2. Have fun!!
Everything about our stay with Trish was perfect! My wife and I stayed a week, and wished we had more time. It far exceeded all our expectations, starting with organizing our airport shuttle before we even arrived. The bungalows were unique, extremely well kept, comfortable, and just plain fun. The beach, restaurants, and shops are within a 10 minute walk from the bungalows, and we felt safe walking at all times of the day and night. The staff was wonderful; everything from maintaining the property, preparing breakfast, and making you feel right at home. Parker and Stella (the fur babies) were so sweet, well behaved, and added to the fun. Trish goes out of her way to recommend the best food and activities in Tamarindo, and she will even make your reservations in advance. She goes above and beyond as a host, and we left feeling like we made new friends. It was the best airbnb experience we've had, and the most unique vacation thanks to Trish, Claudio, and their staff. We can't wait to come back, we wouldn't stay anywhere else!
My girlfriend and I had an incredible time with Trish and Claudio in the beach bungalows! Wonderful hosts that filled up our time in Tamarindo with fantastic suggestions for adventurous and relaxing activities, along with all of the best food and restaurant suggestions! Very friendly and helpful staff with delicious breakfast every morning. Truly a wonderful experience! We definitely plan to come back and stay here with Claudio and Trish again!! Couldn't recommend this location enough!
Warning: do not stay here.. you will never want to leave! Trish was such a bubbly and warm hostess. My friend & I thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay-- everything from the company (Trish, Claudio, Parker, Stella, Edwin and the other guests) to the breakfasts and the relaxing vibe of the property was perfect. Trish gave us a lay of the land of Tamarindo when we arrived, shared a delicious dinner at Green Papaya, laughs and stories throughout our stay and sent us off with a big hug and beautiful memories. Pura Vida!
The beach bungalows were absolutely amazing. I went on a trip with my sister and it exceeded my expectations. The staff are super friendly and welcoming, the property is beautiful, and breakfast is UNREAL. Although I didn't get to meet Trish she was so helpful throughout the entire booking process. Communication was excellent. The location is also great and my sister and I loved using this bicycles to get to the beach. Thanks again for everything!!
Pura vida :)
We absolutely loved our 5 night stay at the Beach Bungalows in Tamarindo. Trish and the rest of the Beach Bungalow crew truly made it feel like home. Trish provided excellent recommendations all around town when we arrived and did not steer us wrong. While only a few min walk to the beach, we loved using the bikes to zip down to the beach and around town. Also the breakfast each morning was amazing. We would recommend the bungalows to anyone looking for a more personal and family feel for their Tamarindo vacation.
From the moment we opened the doors, we were welcomed with a smile and were offered a beverage on the hot day we arrived! Trish was out of town but she was great by helping us with our reservation and with the shuttle transfer. Claudio and Eloisa were exceptional and the staff catered to our needs. Thank you again Maria for the Huevos Rancheros (Bungalows) on our last morning! WiFi worked quickly and breakfast was great everyday. Short walk to the beach and main area from this location. We loved taking the bikes to Playa Langosta from the Bungalows and it saved us a few bucks rather than taking a taxi! Highly recommend staying here!! We will inform our friends and family to stay here in the future :)
We had the best time in Tamarindo because of Beach Bungalows. The environment they have created is incredible. Every morning, the staff cooks a delicious homemade breakfast while everyone sits around a big family-style table and shares stories. We met amazing people, both in the staff and in the others staying at the bungalows, and were so sad when we had to leave. Although I was not able to meet Trish, she sent spot-on recommendations before my arrival (Panga's was incredible!) and made sure I was well taken care of for my birthday while there :) Claudio and Eloisa were especially welcoming and I am so happy we had the chance to meet them. Hope to return to Tamarindo soon - Pura Vida!
I had the loveliest time getting to meet you by email, and I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay and had a great birthday! I am disappointed that I wasn't able to meet you in person, especially because everyone here had such nice things to say about you!! I'm also sorry that the review I sent while traveling somehow didn't go through, but we loved having you and I will share here as well that we all found you to be friendly and considerate and we highly recommend you to other potential host! We hope you can come back and see us again!! Happy travels, 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!
