The Beach Bungalows is a cozy alternative hotel consisting of four raised bungalows built of local, sustainably-grown teak surrounding a palm-fringed swimming pool, and our recently updated backyard "treehouse," all conveniently located near the beach. Our "treehouse" bungalow has an elevated teak sleeping room with screen windows on three sides and a raised ceiling with fan, which allows for the best breezes. (I love to sleep here!!) It is taller than the other bungalows and sits next to a large tree which makes you feel like you are in a treehouse. It can accommodate two twins or a queen size bed. The full bath, with pebble tile shower, commode, sink, and teak and beam closet and dressing area is located downstairs. The fun part is that the stairs to access the bath area are on the outside of the building -- yes, you have to go outside to use the bathroom! So if you like like rustic charm and want something different, the treehouse may be for you!!
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 free wi-fi on the property, real hot showers, a refreshing pool, and a common kitchen area and bbq grill 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.
In our continuing efforts to be "green," we also 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 a comfortable spot to relax at the end of an amazing day. With our magic jack connection, guests can make free calls to the US and Canada.
Let our intimate tropical setting and our "treehouse" 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.
Please be advised that this is not an ideal location for children due to the open pool area and bungalow stairs.
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!
You can easily walk anywhere you would like to go in Tamarindo in 15 minutes or less. There are taxis available should you need one. Although you don't need a car here, there is parking available right in front of our property.
1. Please let us know when you plan to arrive so that we can be sure to be back from the beach in time to greet you!
2. No smoking in the bungalows!
3. Have fun!
We had a great time, and Trish was very helpful. She organized a shuttle from the airport, arranged our surf lessons, got us a yoga appointment, and more.
Plus, we had a great time meeting the other guests. The entire place encourages meeting and chatting with others, not like a hotel where everyone is behind a locked door.
The only downside is the distance to the beach. It's probably 5 minutes longer than other, closer places. But, it's quieter at night too. Using the bicycles makes the distance irrelevant.
Anyways, I highly recommend the beach bungalows to anyone who likes a fun and friendly place.
Trish was a wonderful hostess. The bungalows are adorable..unique, tastefully done and the perfect price. Trish and her staff ensure that your stay there is impeccable…from the map she provides, to the bikes and yoga mats to the delicious Costa Rican breakfast provided for her guests. Loved every minute and would come back in a heart beat. Would recommend completely and without hesitation. A lovely place. Thanks, Trish!
Can't say enough good things about the Beach Bungalows and Trish. She welcomed me and my wife with cold beers, cute dogs and invaluable local knowledge of Tamarindo. Our honeymoon wouldn't have been the same if we hadn't stayed at Trish's place! 100 stars!
We booked 2 nights in Trishs place and had a great time there. Unfortunately we got the smaller treehouse in the backyard which is not placed as good as the others. Tamarindo is really easy to reach by walk or bike. Her place is really clean and the home made breakfast is amazing. We loved staying at Trishs place.
Trish made us feel very welcome. Her place exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect close to everything and just far enough to be tranquil.
I loved everything about the Treehouse, from the delicious breakfasts to the refreshing pool.
Trish and Claudio are great hosts,
very thoughtful and informative.
I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
Staying at the beach bungalow was an amazing experience. Trish was extremely helpful with advice for restaurants and activities. Using her bikes was a lot of fun as well. Her bungalows are very comfortable and clean. The breakfast every morning was delicious and the staff did a fantastic job. The place is only a few minutes from the beach and the town. I highly recommend! Also, papaya green tacos are great so check it out. Trish's dogs are great too.

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!
