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.

2. No smoking in the bungalows!
3. Have fun!
I absolutely loved staying at Trish's tree house bungalows! Trish is the most welcoming and friendly host ever. She got my friend in at the last minute, since we didn't really have a plan but really liked Tamarindo once we drove in.
She greeted us with beer and gave us a quick rundown of the property and area. The next day we got a more thorough run down of the restaurants, places to visit, etc. If you have a question, Trish will figure it out! Plus she had bikes you can borrow, there were two friendly dogs, the staff was super friendly, our room was clean.... I could go on and on. Oh yes! The pool was clean, breakfast was amazing, and it was nice and quiet and relaxing.
I definitely recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed!
Trish was an amazing host! She was extremely welcoming, accommodating, and provided us with a very helpful rundown on the town of Tamarindo(what to see, where to go, what to eat, tours to take). The Bungalows are centrally located within just a short walk from the beach, restaurants, and bars. We absolutely loved staying in the bungalows! They were very well decorated, comfortable, and contained all the things you might need(mini fridge, plenty of fans, safe, closet space). The downstairs area consisted of a private area with a hammock and day bed, which were both wonderful places to relax on and sip on a drink after a long day of exploring. There was also a pool with plenty of seating around it. The pool was perfect on those scorching days when you just wanted a quick dip in to cool down at the end of the day. The beach bungalows are also set up in a way to promote social interaction between guests. We enjoyed meeting a group of great people when there! Staying at the Beach Bungalows has been an amazing experience, and I absolutely cannot wait to go back!!
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Treehouse at the Beach Bungalows and had such a lovely time! Trish and her staff were unbelievably hospitable from the minute we walked in. Make sure to catch the complimentary breakfast in the morning, its delicious.
The Treehouse, which is located behind the main house, offered a sense of privacy from the other Bungalows and I highly recommend staying there! The treehouse was very homey and had a private deck that we sat on each night. There is no air conditioning, so it does get a little hot at night, but since the treehouse is concealed in the back from the neighbors/other bungalows, you can sleep with the blinds wide open.
We definitely plan on returning in the future :)
An incredible place! Close enough to the main strip but removed enough that it's still quiet when you get home. The front of the bungalows is beautiful and the pool is great to hang out around. Breakfast is yummy and very fresh and filling (thanks Maria!) and lots of opportunity to meet other guests and interact with the host and very nice doggies. I will say that you're probably better off booking the bungalows over the treehouse for a few reasons:
1. There is no working wifi in the treehouse- it shows up from time to time, but isn't usable.
2. The back part, while more private, really doesn't share the same characteristic traits and unique elements that define trish's place.
3. Because the treehouse is smaller than the bungalows (bathroom below vs. attached), it is very hot but Claudio generously offered a fan that made it more comfortable.
Overall this is a pretty great place. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want a more private and removed experience but would suggest the bungalows if you're looking for more interaction and a nicer view.
My girlfriend & I loved Trish's Beach Bungalows. The place is very unique, peacful, clean and relaxing. We didn't get the chance to meet Trish but the hosts that were there were so lovely & helpful. The staff are all so nice too, welcoming & the breakfast was great, especially the traditional Costa Rican breakfast. The location was perfect, not right where it's super busy but a nice walk to the beach. We used the bikes, beach towels & lounged by the pool when we needed a break from the sun. There was a washroom & shower where you could rinse off any sand so you don't have drag it to your room. Also, we stayed in the treehouse in the back, it was private, very comfortable & cooled down at night. Thanks Trish! you have a very wonderful bed & breakfast that exceeded our expectations. We wish we could have stayed longer & will be recommending it to friends & family for sure!
We had an incredible week in Costa Rica. Trish, Eloisa, Claudio and team made the trip feel like we were visiting family. The help with organizing trips and recommendations for food (which were spot on) made everyday flow effortlessly; at least for us! The outstanding breakfasts turned us into early risers. No amount of hangover would keep us away. The "treehouse" was comfortable, clean, and private, without feeling too isolated. Being within a few minutes walking distance from the store, café, and beach was a definite plus on those 34°C sunny days! We hope to return with friends next year (or maybe sooner), because memorable trips like this are what life is all about! Thanks again for being such welcoming hosts. You rock!!
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.

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!
