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.
Interaction with Guests
We love getting to know the travelers that come our way! I live on-site and enjoy visiting with guests during breakfast and are available to help plan adventures and answer questions as needed!
Some of the things we love about Tamarindo:
Sunsets at the beach
Scuba diving with Agua Rica
Organic coffee at Cafe Tico
Duck Tacos and Beef tartar at Wok'nRoll
Pie at Nogui's
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!!
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
Everything about the Beach Bungalows was perfect, especially the breakfasts! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tamarindo. Pura Vida!!
Trish's place was great! We spent a ton of time lounging around the pool and in the hammock and day bed. Even though there were other people staying in the other bungalows, things were quiet and we had privacy. Trish herself was a pleasure. So friendly and gave us great recommendations of things to do. Trish's staff were also friendly and helpful. We had freshly cooked breakfast every morning and spent time playing with Trish's dogs. We are already looking into coming back next year.
We cannot say enough about Trish, Claudio and the staff at The Beach Bungalows!! We had a wee bit of a hard time finding the place but that was our fault fir not looking ahead of time. Just find the BIG Bank Nacional and turn right up the hill!!
From the first minute we arrived it we knew it was going to be a great stay. We had the concierge take our things to our bungalow and Trish greeted us with a beer!! She is more than nice and it projects it right onto you! She sat down with a map and went through all the places to go to based on our interests and even reserved a surfing excursion for us. There are a ton of little extras available as well like use of bikes etc.
We settled in with no questions!!!
The pool was refreshing..we had a few swims. There are pool floaters there to use.
Breakfast was over the top both days but especially on V-Day. Trish and her staff outdid themselves. There were candies, heart chocolates and streamers spread about with the most amazing played food arrangement. Heart shaped home-made tortillas with all the fixings including heart guacamole on top. A real treat!!!!
The room was very clean and bug free. There is a big safe for valuables as well. The hammock and under bungalow bed was great for an afternoon siesta. There is nothing missed at this place. Our only complaint is we didn't stay longer!!
We will be back!!
Thanks Trish, Claudio the girls (Stella and Parker)and the staff of the Beach Bungalows. You rock!!
5+ stars in every way!!
Trishs' place is fantastic! a real paradise! The bungalows are nicely decorated and every little detail is thought through and filled with love so that you feel the best and most relaxed possible! She gives great advice for local places to eat, for booking surf lessons and transportation. She is an amazing host in every aspect. We loved our stay of 3 days with Trish & Claudio, Parker & Stella (her lovely dogs) and would go back anytime!

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!
