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!!
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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach Bungalows in Tamarindo. Trish was communicative and helpful from the start and was there with cold beers as promised when we arrived. The bungalows are unique, clean, and very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor space with the day bed and hammock below the bedroom/bath area. The pool is cool and refreshing, the breakfasts excellent, the property felt private and secluded. The only caveat is that the bungalows do not have bathroom doors so, if you are a new couple and/or you prefer your privacy, your relationship will evolve regarding being honest about such things! Trish is aware of this and does provide another bathroom with a door on the property. All in all an excellent experience!
The Beach Bungalows are in a perfect location in Tamarindo- close to all the action and the beach while being far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet when you want it. With all the things to see and do in Tamarindo in about a 5 minute walk away, bikes to enjoy and explore the surrounding area, and Trish's hospitality, we can't wait to plan our next trip to the bungalows! The property is wonderfully taken care of, the breakfasts delicious and hearty, and the community of guests fun to enjoy. Trish will make you feel at home and gives lots of great recommendations to help you make the most of your stay- she is a host who cares a great deal about what she does and making the beach bungalows the best experience for all her guests. We can't say enough good things about our time there!
Trish was a great host. This was a part of our 8 day trip to Costa Rica and this was the BEST stay we had. The place was better than it looks even in the photos. The location was perfect as it was walking distance from down-town Tamarindo as well as the beach. Also, it was far enough from all the bustling crowd. The place is very cozy with a great pool area which is well shaded even in very hot weather.
The place and staff are very welcoming and ensure a very comfortable stay. We had a great time with Trish and the other guests.
We had an amazing stay. Both my partner and I absolutely adored the cabin. Ideal location--perfect for going to the beach. The breakfasts were incredible!!! We felt so welcome and we're sad to leave.

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!
