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!
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.

Rule 2. Have fun!!
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the Beach Bungalows! Trish was wonderful and so was her entire staff. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. Trish was generous enough to provide us with recommendations on places to eat, see and do in the area and everything she suggested was awesome. Such a great experience!
The Beach Bungalows were absolutely amazing. Trish was an amazing host for my girlfriend and myself and when she wasn't around, Claudio and all the others were extremely helpful as well. We could not have been luckier with our stay here. Trish and her team made a delicious breakfast for us every morning. She also took time to go through and explain on the map all the places to check out and those to avoid. It was really helpful having insider information about Tamarindo. Also, any activities that we wanted to do (i.e. ziplining, sailing, etc.) we booked through her and got great pricing and insight. The Bungalows were very clean and had filtered, drinkable water along with fully functioning toilets. We had a great time meeting the other people in the bungalows as well. It was a great social atmosphere and we made great friends from New Jersey, Minnesota, and even Canada. I would highly recommend the Beach Bungalows to anyone who is unsure about traveling to a foreign country. We felt very safe the entire time and Trish and Claudio really know how to make you feel like family. Trish also had transportation to and from the airport booked for us, so when we arrived in Costa Rica, we had someone waiting for us with a sign that had our names on it and wearing clothes exactly as described by Trish. You are also less than a 5 minute walk from downtown Tamarindo and the beach. We were able to eat at a ton of different restaurants and really had good access to anywhere we wanted to go. Overall, we loved our stay here and are super thankful and grateful to have had hosts like Trish and Claudio. We were really sad to leave. If you are going to go to Costa Rica, then you absolutely should stay at the Beach Bungalows with Trish and Claudio as they are nothing less than exceptional hosts.
Our time spend at the Beach Bungalows was more than we could have ever asked for. My boyfriend and I travelled to Costa Rica for a much needed vacation and as soon as we arrived we were greeted with smiles and warm welcomes! Everything was just as pictured only better. We woke up every morning thinking that this is a little piece of paradise and we are so lucky to be here. Trish and her staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. Trish even woke up at 3:30 am to make us coffee and breakfast sandwiches for our way to the airport on our last day! She had great recommendations for where to eat (and not eat) and what tour companies and excursions were best. Make sure your try the fish tacos at FT's....so yummy! Without a doubt the best vacation we have ever been on and an awesome first experience with Airbnb!
Thanks so much Trish, we will be back soon!

Trish and Claudio greeted us with big smiles and offered up drinks right away. Their place was just as the pictures showed and even better in person. The bungalow was very cozy and clean. We never had an issue with bugs. The beds were super comfy and we always had a warm shower. The pool was super cold so even though its 90 outside the beach bungalows kept us cool! The breakfasts are very yummy and filling. No need to eat lunch. The atmosphere at the bungalows is very laid back and you get to meet different couples from around the world. There is always someone to chat with if you like. The staff keeps the place very clean and welcoming. Trish knows the area very well and guides everyone in the right direction to beaches and restaurants. She also can book day trips for you. No need to use your cell phones for guidance as Trish is on top of it all! Put the technology away and relax! We would love to stay for months!
Staying at the Beach Bungalows was the best decision of my trip! This place is an absolute paradise bursting with charm, love and genuine Pura Vida culture. Trish, Claudio, Elousia, Maria, Edwin and Lesley make you feel like family the moment you arrive:) They provide anything you could ever need for an incredible holiday in Tamarindo including an amazing breakfast each morning, advise, information, bicycles to help you get around and a safe, clean, welcoming, gorgeous place to relax by day or retreat to after a day at the beach or in town. Their place attracts easy going travellers and you are sure to make new friends with fellow "beach bungelowers" and of course with your lovely hosts. Don't think twice about booking a stay at this hidden gem! You wont regret it and will most likely be planning your next stay there before you even leave, I know I was! I can't wait to go back!!
This was the perfect escape from our Canadian winter, when we arrived we were greeted by Claudio with a beer and felt welcomed instantly. Stella & Parker were the sweetest dogs and enjoyed sneaking afternoon naps in our lounge area with us when we returned from the beach. We met Trish later in the week and you can see all the love she puts into her cute little oasis, she was helpful with restaurant suggestions and is the friendliest person who is easy to sit & chat with. The Bungalows were clean & cute and just the right size, breakfast every morning was phenomenal. The pool was cool and refreshing. It was super safe with the locked gate and easy walking distance to everything. We had a fabulous week here and can't wait to return. Thanks for everything!

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!
