Stay in a cozy 1 BR or 2 BR, upscale Costa Rican-style bungalows with a pristine pool at your doorstep. Look out over the trees to the Pacific ocean from your private balcony and listen to the birds and howler monkeys that call the gardens of Casa Tranquila home.

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 kitchenette has everything you'll need to eat at home if you wish.
The bungalow has a comfy bed, 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 gray water from your bungalow feeds into the trees and other plants that surround the property instead of washing into the ocean.

Guest access

Guests can take advantage of the swimming pool 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.

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.

My husband and I stayed duurinf tbe week of 4th of July. Everything about this place is perfect. Its a short but sweet walking distance to the beach and town. Even the weather made it more enjoyable. You won't regret staying here. Guapa the dog was also very friendly.

Great little bungalows. Close to everything in Tamarindo. Jose has some great suggestions on places to go, eat and see. Do yourself a favor and rent a car. There are a lot of cool beaches a little less crowded then Tamarindo, that are worth the drive! Only warning: I got severere food poisoning from the Bodega (organic restaurant and market). Avoid that place! Other than that, Pura Vida!

If u are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the beach but also the jungle this is the place for you. The beach is only 15 minutes walking distance. I love that you are sorounded by trees at Jose's place. My favorite thing was to chill at the pool with my family while drinking some local beer and eating the delicious empanadas from there.

Jose and his family are incredibly sweet, very accommodating hosts. We absolutely loved our bungalow and the garden space is incredibly beautiful. We woke up every morning to the beautiful birds and howler monkeys and enjoyed coffee by the lovey pool immersed in the tropical tranquility. The bungalow is a 10 or so minute walk to town, so very doable, especially if you are looking for the peace and quiet this space offers while still being close to town. Thank you Jose for everything--your advice, incredibly friendly nature and welcome. We will miss Tamarindo greatly!!

Costa Rica is all about the 'pura vida': living the pure life, the good life. For us, there's nothing better than living in paradise, surrounded by tropical vegetation and animals, plus friendly people, while enjoying the amenities of a modern-day lifestyle. So we built our home amid tall, old-growth trees where flowers bloom in the summer and the leaves explode with green in the winter, so we can listen to the wind in the branches, hear birds chirping and monkeys howling.
We surf, we travel, we laugh. We hope you join us to do the same. Pura vida!
