The Beach Bungalows is a cozy alternative hotel consisting of four raised teak bungalows, conveniently located near the beach. 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 wi-fi throughout the property, a refreshing pool, and a common kitchen area 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.
We 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 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, a mini-fridge, and 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!
n 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.

My wife and I had an excellent time at the Beach Bungalows. It was everything we expected! It's in a great location - you're far enough from the noise of the city but close enough to walk to the beach. Trish was an excellent host. In addition to serving us a delicious breakfast every morning, she helped us book our transport to and from the airport as well as on a fantastic boat ride. She knows the town well and was happy to share her knowledge with us. If you're staying in Tamarindo you can't go wrong with the bungalows!
We had a great time at the Bungalows, so much so we took advantage of staying another night. The bungalows are gorgeous and clean. I was worried we would have a problem with no AC but it was just fine at night. The staff...oh the staff is just amazing. Everyone was so nice and helpful with getting situated, booking rides & activities! We were sorry to miss Trish but still we were very well taken care of. The breakfast is a must, so delicious. My boyfriend and I loved the atmosphere and getting to play with the dogs or lay around in the hammock or pool. We would highly recommend the bungalows to anyone and hope to return again soon!
My husband and I cannot recommend the Beach Bungalows enough to people who enjoy meeting other travelers, eating wonderful breakfasts and playing with dogs every day. Unfortunately, we only had an opportunity to get to know Trish briefly before she left for her vacation, but she was very welcoming and helpful in her recommendations of where to eat and things to do. But in her absence, Eloisa, Claudio and staff took great care of us. The bungalows were quite comfortable, although a bit hot as the days warmed up. We were there at the hottest time of the year, but did have a wonderful breeze. My husband would have preferred a door on the bathroom (did not bother me), but there was an alternate bathroom with a door for all of us to use if desired. We had wonderfully hot showers, and the bed was extremely comfortable after a long day of zip lining. Eloisa arranged a river tour for us, which was fantastic, and even arranged to have a masseuse come to be bungalows to give me a massage after my yoga class at Ser Om Shanti. The location of the bungalows was a 10-minute walk from every place we wanted to go, and we would recommend Tamarindo as a destination because of the kindness of the people, the great restaurants, and the beautiful sunsets. If we have an opportunity to return again in the future, this is where we plan to stay!!!
My fiancee and I spent a total of 8 nights here at The Beach Bungalows, and it was hands down the best 8 nights we’ve ever spent at any hotel or AirBNB booking. The staff was incredible, whether it was cooking an amazing breakfast for us every morning or helping us book a particular tour, they couldn’t have been better. The bungalows themselves are insane. Between relaxing during the day in the hammock or daybed, or waking up in the morning to a Costa Rican breeze, they were nothing short of incredible. All in all, words can’t explain how great a place this is. We’re already thinking about coming back and there’s no way I’ll stay any other place in Tamarindo than The Beach Bungalows.
Before we went there we had reviewed many of the comments and recommendations about Trish and her place The Beach Bungalows. I must say that our stay there definitely exceeded all our expectations. Trish and her team were warm,very helpful and generous. They made us feel very comfortable and safe. They went out of their way to please my odd dietary tastes, accommodate us comfortably on our check out day when our flight was late at night, arrange trips, rental cars etc at great discounts - beyond their call of duty.
The facilities were nice and clean with many special extras like air conditioned TV lounge room with all the channels you would need, excellent WiFi, free long distance complimentary phone usage, available tea Coffee at all times, awesome breakfasts and juices, free usage of her bikes and boogie boards , home made fragrance bug sprays insect repellents, etc
We met many very interesting people from Canada US and Europe there and had good conversations with them and made friends.
We would recommend The Beach Bungalows to our friends and family without any reservation.
A fantastic place with an amazing host. Trish and her team constantly went out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect for us. They arranged transportation, gave a great list of restaurants to check out, and helped arranged day trips. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

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!
