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.
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!
Some of the things we love about Tamarindo:
Sunsets at the beach
Scuba diving with Agua Rica
Organic coffee at Cafe Tico
Duck Tacos at Wok'nRoll
Pie at Nogui's
the cool people here!
It is easy to get around Tamarindo. Everything you would want to do is within walking distance, and taxis are available and inexpensive. A shuttle service can be arranged from LIR to our door for $20 per person. Tamarindo airport is a short hop from San Jose on Sansa or Nature Air.
Rule 1. Remember to contact us (email hidden) with your arrival time so we can be sure to be back from the beach in time to greet you!
Rule 2. Have fun!!
I think we must have found the best place in Tamarindo (maybe even in Costa Rica)! Trish was absolutely amazing. She had a shuttle waiting on us at the airport, was there when we arrived to tell us everything we needed to know and more about this cute little surf town and also, had a nice cold beer waiting for us. =)
She booked our catamaran cruise, ziplining/horseback riding/rapid tubing/hot springs adventure, and our sunset cruise on the old treasure ship for our last night. We didn't have to worry about whether or not a restaurant was good, because Trish gave us a map and circled all of the places we should try and what to get where.
Everything was super easy and super fun.
The place is absolutely the cutest place in town. The beautiful, raised, teak bungalows with hammocks and daybeds underneath are so pretty. The water in the pool was clean and cool after a hot day at the beach. Edwin and Maria are so sweet. Her two pups make you not miss home even for a second. Maria makes a delicious breakfast every morning.
I really could go on for much longer, but I will leave some surprise for you because you will definitely want to book the Beach Bungalows!
Thanks Trish and Beach Bungalow family for an amazing, amazing week!
My stay at The Bungalows was nothing short of amazing! Trish was an exceptional host and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable! When my sister and I arrived, we were greeted by a smiling Trish, two cold glasses of beer and her two wonderful dogs. She then sat down with us and a map of Tamarindo and proceeded to point out all of the delightful places to eat or things to do (massages on the beach-great price!/surf lessons). You HAVE to try EVERY food place Trish recommends because they are absolutely delicious!
The Bungalows are a short walk to the beach (about 10 min.) and a variety of restaurants and shops (my favorites being two handmade jewelry shops- EK Jewelry and Arkabuko). Trish was also so kind to book all of us staying in the Bungalows different excursions: zip lining, horse back riding, repelling, rock climbing and white water tubing tour at Rincon De La Vieja Volcano and a nature hike/tour of Rio Celeste (the waterfall is beautiful- Google it!). Both tours are highly recommended!
Overall, what made this trip magnificent were our hosts, Trish and Claudio, and their staff. Trish and her staff provided a scrumptious breakfast every morning and the grounds were exceptionally clean and pleasing to the eye. If you're looking for a relaxing beach trip with adventure and nature mixed in, stay at The Bungalows in Costa Rica!
Thank you so much Trish for a memorable trip! We'll be back!
Enjoyed our stay at the Beach Bungalows. Great breakfast every morning, 10 min walk to town. Enjoyed riding the 2 bicycles when they were available. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and the Bungalows and grounds were very clean and maintained. Pool was perfect after a hot walk back from the beach. The drinking water was safe.
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!

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!
