The Space


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 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 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 then provide you with 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!

Guest Access

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!

  • My stay at the Beach Bungalows was my first Airbnb experience and I could not have had a better experience! The Beach Bungalows are phenomenal but more than that, the hospitality, amenities, and service provided by Trish and her employees are wonderful. The Bungalows are very cute and small B&B community experience allows you to get to know the other guests, exchange stories over breakfast, and wonderful travel tips.

    Unfortunately, we were not able to meet Trish because she was out of town, but Claudio and his son Mateo were equally as amazing. Let me start by saying that breakfast provided each day is great! I still miss the wonderful platanos. Breakfast is definitely worth part of your stay. Another huge perk of staying at the Beach Bungalows is that if you book anything through Trish, you get a local price. I did not realize this until we were there but boy can I say I was glad I didn’t pre-book any tours/trips! They arranged everything for us, gave great restaurant recommendations. The highlights for us – were surf lessons and the gourmet sunset cruise (the cruise is a MUST!).

    My only complaint from my experience was that the Bungalows did not have AC. This was something I should have looked closer into prior to booking but that being said, they were more than accommodating by supplying multiple fans for our room. At the end of the day if we absolutely needed AC you could go in the common room to get it and we were really only in the Bungalows at night.

    I would without a doubt stay at the Beach Bungalows next time I go to Tamarindo!

  • We loved our stay at the bungalows. The bungalows are clean, pleasant and very well run. Relaxing at the pool or in the hammocks under the shade provided a perfect respite when we needed a break from being out in the sun all day. They really think of the details and have bikes, a beach towels and bug spray available for guests to borrow. We got to know the other guests staying at the bungalows and it was nice to do activities with them as well. We felt safe and comfortable throughout the entire stay.

    The breakfasts here are amazing and were some of the most memorable meals we had on the trip (and we ate plenty of good food!) - fresh fruit, local goat yogurt, omelets, huevos rancheros. We looked forward to it every day and were plenty energized for the day ahead.

    Trish and Claudio really made our trip smooth and memorable. They provided recommendations for everything from food to excursions. They even took the time to make phone calls for us and book our trips. It was really nice to just talk to them and hear their stories as well. It made the stay so much more personable and special. And of course we also loved spending time with Parker and Stella, they are clean, well-trained and adorable dogs!

  • First let me say that Trish and Claudio are two of the most generous and amazing people I have ever met. We also had the great fortune of staying with other great couples and we all ended up hanging out together. The place is beautiful! The attention to detail and help in obtaining a fishing trip, restaurant tips, bikes, etc. was top notch and helped make our vacation go smoothly. Trish provided breakfast as well! I can't say enough good things about our time here. It was magical. I would note this is not a place for people who prefer quiet/hotel chain experience. We are a couple in our early forties who went to Tamarindo for sun, surf, and adventure. We were looking for a more authentic experience and this fit the bill perfectly.

  • Our stay at the Beach Bungalows was simply amazing. It really felt like a home away from home. Trish, was a wonderful host helping us with everything we needed from tips of the best places to eat to arranging an amazing sunset cruise. We stayed here for part of our trip and after checking into a new place we instantly missed the personal touches ( mason jars!) and hospitality that Trish offers. As dog lovers being around Parker and Stella, made it a lot easier to cope without our own pup. Over all the Beach Bungalows is a great place and I would highly recommend it to all.

    Best wishes,

    Mike and Chelsea

  • Wow!!! Unbelievable! The Beach Bungalows are the most amazing place we have ever been! It is a paradise in which we immediately felt welcomed and loved. Matteo and Claudio were excellent hosts helping us more than we ever could have asked for from everything to advice to private surf lessons with friends. It has everything you could ask for and more. If we could move in, I think we would! Thanks so much for the beautiful time and amazing staff! Everyone is so nice and the two dogs are fabulous. If you get a chance to stay here, it's a must!! Best place we have ever stayed anywhere.

  • We booked this trip a week prior to arrival, and we couldn't have been happier with what we found - charming private bungalows a short walk from the beach, shops and restaurants. It was nice to retreat there for a dip in the pool and to relax in our personal lounge area after a long day of beaching, touring and such.

    The bungalows are small but clean and quaint - just a bedroom and bath - exactly what we needed. There was a fridge to house our Imperials (the local brew) and a safe for personal effects.

    We met some nice people in the other units and appreciated the daily breakfast. Unfortunately we weren't able to meet Trish, who was very accommodating in finalizing our travel plans, booking a shuttle from the airport and making sure we were greeted upon our arrival, despite the fact that we were running late. Claudio and Matteo were great hosts, giving recommendations for tours, directions and such. For a couple of dog lovers, Parker and Stella added to the experience as well.

    Our only real criticism would be some neighboring dogs barking in the middle of the night, but that wouldn't deter us from going back again!

    We'd recommend The Beach Bungalows to anyone looking for a laid back, well-run environment that strays from the all-inclusive concept. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back!

  • If you are looking for a little slice of home away from home, look no further! Trish and Claudio are great people, they take great pride in making their guests feel comfortable and accommodated. The amenities met all of our wants; quaint teak huts with well kept grounds, a pool, common area (kitchen/tv room) for everyone to use all in a safe place and located in an ideal spot close to everything!

    It was our great pleasure to have you come and stay with us, and knowing that you feel like a part of our family makes my day!! Best, Trish

  • Our stay at the Beach Bungalows was awesome! I would recommend it to all of my friends visiting Tamarindo. The Beach Bungalows is just off the main road so it's great if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place to come back to but still want to be close to the beach.

    Trish, Claudio, & Matteo were great! They gave us great food/restaurant recommendations and helped us book/organize activities. This was the best part of our stay in Costa Rica and I wish we could have stayed longer!

  • The Beach Bungalows far exceeded our expectations. The cosy rooms were perfect for us. The rooms have a bed, closet, bathroom, and a safe. Under the unit there is a hammock and chair for relaxing by the pool. Trish, Claudio, and Mateo were very gracious hosts. We felt welcome from the moment we walked on the property. Trish even made dinner reservations for us one night and booked us on the Blue Dolphin tour. It is only a short walk to the main drag and to the beach.

  • My wife and I had a great stay at the beach bungalows. The tree house like bungalow had a great outdoor space for hanging and and relaxing Our Host Trish , Claudio and Mateo were fantastic . Trish has certainly has raised the bar on which we will be comparing all of our other stay too. The bungalows were close enough to the beach and the town core but far enough away to be peaceful.
    We will certainly be recommending this oasis to others

taking a break in sunny Costa Rica
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!
