The Beach Bungalows is a cozy alternative hotel consisting of four raised teak bungalows, conveniently located near the beach.

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.

the cool people here!
You can walk anywhere in Tamarindo in 15 minutes or less. Taxis are also available and are inexpensive. Shuttles can be arranged from LIR for $20 per person, and Tamarindo is just a hop from San Jose on Sansa or Nature Air.
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!!
My boyfriend and I stayed at the beach bungalows for a week on our first trip to Costa Rica. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our stay. Trish was a warm and welcoming host who pointed us to all the best restaurants, surf shops, and adventure tours in town. She graciously arranged all the shuttles and payments so we didn't have to. Her adorable dogs greeted us whenever we walked through the gate and even swam with us in the pool. At the end of the day, we were happy to be away from the main tourist strip where it was less commercial, more rustic, and full of charm. Every morning, we woke up to howling monkeys and tropical birds, and enjoyed a homemade breakfast with fresh fruit smoothies (our favorite meal of the day). We were only a 10 minute walk to the beach and farmer's market, and even less to Cafe Tico, which serves the strongest, smoothest coffee in town (sustainable, organic, shade-grown, fair trade, and direct from the farmers). We look forward to staying with Trish again!
Trish and Claudio both made us feel very welcomed in Tamarindo. She was extremely responsive to messages and was very helpful. Trish and Claudio provided detailed instructions about the Bungalows and also where to explore in the area. It's evident that they love Tamarindo and want their guests to enjoy their stay. We would definitely recommend staying at the Beach Bungalows during your stay in Tamarindo!
Upon arrival we were immediately greeted with smiles and cold beers- couldn't have asked for a better welcoming :)
Trish helped us map out where we were and where we should go. She suggested lots of different restaurants and activities to try while we were there and was always available and helpful when we had questions about anything.
The bungalow was incredible/beautiful/amazing/fantastic and the daily breakfasts were delicious! We had such a wonderful time on our trip and we highly recommend staying in the bungalows to anyone thinking about travelling to Tamarindo. Trish and all of the Bungalow Family made us feel so welcome and took such great care of us. Thanks again to you all, and shout out to Parker and Stella, we miss those pups! :)
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 :)

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!
