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

the cool people here!

2. No smoking in the bungalows!
3. Have fun!
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.
Our stay at the Beach Bungalows was nothing short of fantastic. After reading all the reviews I knew we were in for a treat but our stay at the bungalows still managed to exceed all of our expectations. Trish was insanely helpful from the start and thoroughly answered the thousands of questions I bothered her with for months. We were greeted with cold beers and a map that Trish walked us through explaining where to go and what to avoid. Listen to her every word - she will NOT steer you wrong. We hit every restaurant/food establishment she recommended and promise you she's got some killer taste buds.
The property is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Treehouse for three nights and a bungalow for another three and would recommend both. The interior of the rooms is unbelievable, you can tell attention was paid to every detail. Loved jumping in the pool after a full day at the beach and Parker and Stella are also an adorable added bonus! It's a 5 minute walk into town for all the action and it was so nice coming back to peace and quiet.
Breakfast every morning was amazing and was more than enough to fill you up for a full day of sun or activities. We were there on Valentine's Day and the patio and breakfast table were covered in decorations! The huevos rancheros we were served were in the shape of a heart.. come on now. Unbelievable.
We were in the middle of our stay and were already contacting friends back home to see if they wanted to plan a vacation and grab all of the bungalows sometime next year. I would recommend the them to absolutely everyone planning a trip to Tamarindo.
Trish Claudio & team - We cannot thank you enough. You made our trip to Costa Rica what it was and we cannot wait to return! Enjoyed our stay is the understatement of the century. We miss you guys!
Side note: Go to Be! restaurant and snag a chair on the beach if you want waiter service and a free chair :) We spent 3 full days there!
Trish and Claudio are amazing hosts. We stayed in the treehouse suite which was beautiful and comfortable. There are so many little details that Trish has thought of and it really makes for an unforgettable stay.
Location could not be better, Tamarindo is small enough that you can easily walk to everything that you could need and the bungalows are far enough from the beach and main strip that it is quiet and serene.
We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and you can feel a great energy when you are there from both the hosts and the other guests. All of the team members at the Beach Bungalows are great especially Edwin and Elouise (and of course Trish and Claudio).
Trish was very accommodating to help us to book a last minute shuttle and when that didn't work out she accommodated for us to stay an additional night.
Nothing bad to possibly say about The Beach Bungalows. We will forever compare our stays with new hosts to yours as yours was simply the best!
If you are debating where to stay in Tamarindo- stay here!!! :)
The Beach Bungalows are truly a little slice of heaven! My boyfriend and I stayed in the tree house for 8 nights in January and had an absolutely amazing time. The staff is incredibly welcoming, overly kind, and overall, really wonderful people.
The treehouse is located on the backside of the property and is much more private than the bungalows. The grounds and the rooms are spotlessly cleaned daily, and we felt incredibly safe during our entire stay. We really can't wait to come back!
Thanks again to Trish, Claudio, and the other staff members for a great stay!

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!
