The Space

This one-bedroom architect-designed bungalow comes fully equipped for short stays and month-long getaways. It's perfect for honeymooners or families with up to two kids, as well as small groups of friends.
The kitchen has everything you'll need to eat at home if you wish.
The bungalow has a comfy bed, with a TV in the bedroom, air conditioning throughout, a daybed that fits two people in the living space.
The bathroom has a huge glassed-in shower with a big window to the gardens, where monkeys pass regularly.
Just outside your door is a cool swimming pool and wooden deck for relaxing, as well as plenty of hammocks.
Casa Tranquila was designed with sustainability in mind. The property takes advantage of sea breezes for passive cooling, minimizing the need for A/C. The graywater from your bungalow feeds into the banana trees and other plants that surround the property instead of washing into the ocean.

Guest Access

Guests can take advantage of the pool, fire pit area, edible gardens and secure, off-street parking. We have laundry (washer/dryer) on-site as well. Fee per load. ($20USD)

Interaction with Guests

The owner/architect lives on the same property as your bungalow.

The Neighborhood

Casa Tranquila is located on a hill in a quiet, residential neighborhood of Tamarindo – far enough from the busy downtown that you won't be kept awake by the parties but close enough that you're just a 10 minute walk away from the center of town or 14 minutes to the beach.

Getting Around

You can easily walk all of Tamarindo, or see the town and beach by bike. There is secure off street parking for 2 cars. Best is fly to Liberia International Airport. Just one hour drive to your bungalow. You can book a shuttle or rent a car.

Other Things to Note

The property of Casa Tranquila was designed to protect the habitat of the howler monkeys that travel through the area. The monkeys can often be seen eating the flowers and papayas on the property, and sometimes you'll hear them walking across your roof!
The property has 3 bungalows: your oceanview bungalow by the pool, a 2-bedroom casita and the owner/architect's house. All are separated by old-growth trees and lots of colorful vegetation to make you feel like you are living in an almost untouched slice of Tamarindo.
