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.

While we love kids, 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 the anticipated time of your arrival so we are sure to be back from thebeach in time to greet you.
Rule 2. Have fun!
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.
The Beach Bungalows were the perfect introduction for us to Costa Rica! We were welcomed by the friendly staff and helped to our comfy bungalow. We loved the hammock and lounge area on the first floor of the bungalow. Breakfast was always delicious and having the dogs at the property made the place so cozy. :-) The location was very convenient. It was a short walk to restaurants, banks, bars, the grocery store, and of course the beach. Our only complaints were the ants (but duh...Costa Rica) and the fact that we didn't get to meet Trish in person (she was away during the few days we were in Tamarindo). Thanks for a terrific stay in Tamarindo!
Trish a été accueillante et sympathique, lors de notre séjour au Beach Bungalows. Le lit est confortable, et les déjeuners étaient très bons. Merci pour l'eau potable, ce qui est plutôt rare au Costa Rica! Nous avons adoré notre grand balcon muni d'un hamac et d'un lit pour relaxer. Trish nous a fait de bonnes recommandations sur les activités et les restaurants de Tamarindo. Le logement est situé à environ 7 minutes à pieds des services et de la plage.
Les bungalows sont parfaits pour de courts séjours. Ils ont un peu étroits si comme nous vous avez beaucoup de bagages, mais si vous voyagez léger, c'est parfait.
My wife and I spent part of our vacation to Costa Rica in these beautiful Beach Bungalows. They were incredible and in an amazing location. It was quiet, shaded and an easy walk to the town/beach. Honestly though, the best part of staying here was Trish. She is super kind and generous to help you with anything you need. She gives top recommendations on where to eat, where to surf, where to go diving, anything you want to know. Also she makes breakfast every morning which was a really fun part of our day to meet the other friendly people who were staying at her Bungalows. We would absolutely come back again and stay with Trish and are recommending this place to all of our friends!
All I have to say is wow, wow, WOW!! During our first trip to Costa Rica, my girlfriend and I decided to book a couple nights at the beach bungalows and it was the best decision we made. Trish was an amazing host and the bungalows were to die for. Her attention to detail can be seen in every aspect of the place and we really appreciated her hospitality. The room was clean and comfortable, the area underneath the bungalow was perfect for winding down and keeping cool, the pool was great and their two dogs are so friendly. And that's leaving out my favourite part of the whole experience - the most amazing breakfasts we had while in Costa Rica! We had only booked 2 nights but decided almost immediately that we would be staying longer. If I ever return to Tamarindo, I will be most excited to come back to the beach bungalows. We are so thankful we decided to stay here and will be recommending it to everyone!
Staying at the bungalows was the most wonderful experience. From the moment we walked in we were shown the greatest hospitality that we could've ever expected. Trish and her awesome team, including her super duper dogs, fed us delicious breakfasts, suggested "things that locals do," coordinated a sailing sunset cruise aboard the Antares as well as our airport shuttle and taxi to our next destination, recommended restaurants and provided 'a bungalow away from home' that we will never forget! Thanks so much Trish!
The Beach Bungalows were exactly as described and raved about! We arrived late Saturday night and were warmly welcomed by Claudio. Trish was traveling until the end of our trip, but Claudio took great care for us. We did get to meet Trish our last morning and she embodied everything that was wonderful about the Bungalows, Tamarindo, and the Pure Vida lifestyle.
The Bungalows served as a perfect home base for all of our activities around Tamarindo (beaching, biking, eating out, exploring) and day trips (combo package through Go Adventures). Every morning we were greeted by the wonderful crew, Maria, Edwin, and Claudio and treated to a lovely breakfast. Our favorite parts included the pool for cooling off, the hammocks for reading and napping, and the full kitchen for our nights of cooking in, wine, and playing cards.
Getting to know the other visitors was wonderful! We met amazing people from different countries and who had traveled all over Costa Rica.
We highly recommend the bungalows as that piece of vacation to truly enjoy and seize the natural beauty of the beach side of Costa Rica.
Thank you Trish and crew for making our vacation so memorable!

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!
