“Piece of Heaven!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the lovely bungalows. The bungalows are clean, cozy, and comfortable. The hammock and sofa undeneath the bungalow was a perfect spot for relaxation.
Trish, the owner, is the definition of happy. She was a pleasure to be around and made our experience even better. She is very accommodating and goes above and beyond for her guests. We plan to be back some day and defintely recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a private, relaxing spot in the midst of beautiful Tomarindo.

As others we booked this place on a whim! We were welcome with open arms as if we old friends returning even though it was our first time visiting. These bungalows were so amazing, clean beautiful exotic wood with such relaxing and friendly atmosphere we sleep with only screens open with nice jungle-ocean air flowing into our room with the occasional monkeys and other animal sounds. This combined with the friends of the staff and new friends of other travelers we meet and will now stay in touch with forever! To sum it up "PURA VIDA"! You will certainly understand when you learn the meaning and experience this amazing Stay!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the Bungalows in the front overlooking the pool!

My experience here in these gorgeous bungalows was nothing short of amazing. Coupled with the amazing auras of Trish and Claudio, beautiful Maria and Edwin with their attention to detail while keeping the place spotless, and of course Stella and Parker who kept me laughing with their adorable ways. I Cried on the way home! As a solo female traveler, I can recommend this bed-and-breakfast to any and everyone. Beach is a few minutes walk, as is everything else! (food, activities, massages!) no car needed. The breeze of the palm trees on your skin after a long hot day at the beach is very calming. Also, the pool is very refreshing and I spent a lot of time at it!
My favorite part would be your own personal "Zen Center" right beneath your own bungalow equipped with a daybed and a Hammock!
It was such a fulfilling trip! Everything was perfect!
I will be returning soon!

We loved our stay at the bungalows. The bungalows are clean, pleasant and very well run. Relaxing at the pool or in the hammocks under the shade provided a perfect respite when we needed a break from being out in the sun all day. They really think of the details and have bikes, a beach towels and bug spray available for guests to borrow. We got to know the other guests staying at the bungalows and it was nice to do activities with them as well. We felt safe and comfortable throughout the entire stay.

The breakfasts here are amazing and were some of the most memorable meals we had on the trip (and we ate plenty of good food!) - fresh fruit, local goat yogurt, omelets, huevos rancheros. We looked forward to it every day and were plenty energized for the day ahead.

Trish and Claudio really made our trip smooth and memorable. They provided recommendations for everything from food to excursions. They even took the time to make phone calls for us and book our trips. It was really nice to just talk to them and hear their stories as well. It made the stay so much more personable and special. And of course we also loved spending time with Parker and Stella, they are clean, well-trained and adorable dogs!

We are so glad you felt comfortable and at home while you were here with us, and I love hearing that you enjoyed breakfast while you were here!! Sunday dinners at my grandmother's house taught me that being able to share yummy food is one of the great pleasures of life. It was our pleasure to have you with us, and we hope to see you in the future!

Happy travels,

We enjoyed our time with Trish and the gang immensely! It was nice and peaceful in the "village" and not far from the action of Tamarindo and the beach. She was waiting with cold beers when we arrived and the breakfasts were fantastic. We had a great group of travelers staying at the same time and this seems to be the type of people Trish attracts. And be sure to spend some time with her sweet dogs, Parker and Stella!

When I happened to get sick, Trish helped drive me to the doctor's office and was very helpful and sweet. We would definitely go there again!

From the initial booking to check-in to check-out, Trish was attentive, friendly and helpful. It's a laid back and relaxing place, but it's also extremely well-run and organized thanks to Trish and her amazing staff.

The Treehouse gave us a lot more privacy, but the other bungalows looked fantastic as well. Room was clean and cute. Bed was comfy and the shower had hot water (not that I needed it much). There's also a room safe and a bar fridge.

Don't worry about the lack of A/C in the room. We were there for a week during the hottest month of the year and the combination of the screen windows and multiple fans kept us cool and comfortable at night.

The Treehouse lacks the lounge area underneath with the personal hammock and daybed, but there are a few lounge chairs and beanbags by the pool which you can use.

Daily breakfast from 8-10 am was a nice touch before heading out for the day's adventures. It's great to have the first meal of the day taken care of, so you don't have to rush out the door in search of food.

The beach is maybe 5-10 minutes away, depending on how fast you walk. The B&B has beach towels, a soft cooler, a couple of bikes and even a surfboard available for guests to borrow.

If the sun or heat does get the best of you, there's an air conditioned media lounge room with access to a laptop, big screen TV with Netflix, Appletv, etc. The pool is also a great place to cool off.

If you're a single traveller or just looking to meet new people during your travels, Beach Bungalows is ideal. Everyone I met was friendly and a lot of fun. If you prefer to keep to yourself, you can totally do that too (but why would you want to?)

I really enjoyed the overall hospitality of Beach Bungalows. Trish and Claudio, Edwin, Maria and Mateo (and my BFFs Parker and Stella) made my first Costa Rican experience so memorable and special. Such gracious hosts. Highly, highly recommended.

The Beach Bungalow Bed & Breakfast was more than I could have even dreamed about as far as places to stay while visiting Costa Rica. The photos are beautiful, but the actual property is truly stunning! --- As soon as we arrived, we were initially greeted by (and I'm not exaggerating) two of the sweetest dogs EVER, Parker and Stella. We met Trish on the patio and she welcomed us as if we were long time friends visiting her home. Check in --- Smoothies with rum and discussing priorities like easiest access to the beach and the best places to eat in Tamarindo. (Side note: EVERYTHING that she recommended was spot on!) We stayed in the tree house which is located behind the main house on a slight hill. The first "floor" is the bathroom, changing area, and has a small refrigerator. The top part is the sleeping quarter with balcony overlooking the town and beach. It's breathtaking. The room has large windows on 3 walls and a couple of fans. There isn't an A/C unit, but honestly it isn't necessary. The cool breeze keeps the room very comfortable. There are also 4 bungalows in the front of the property that are equally as lovely, but we enjoyed the additional privacy that the tree house offered. Additional luxuries: WiFi throughout the property, outdoor community kitchen and bbq area, TV room with all the bells and whistles (but honestly, the watching TV was not even on our list of things to do), bikes to borrow to ride into town, coolers and towels to borrow to use on the beach, and the list goes on... Breakfast was amazing!! Everything was so fresh and tasted like it was made with love everyday. LOL, so true though! Also, the property is well kept and very clean. I should also mention that it's a short walk to the town and the beach. We loved that too because the property was private and quiet. We easily fell into relaxation mode and the overall atmosphere was very peaceful.

Most importantly, Trish and Claudio are exceptional hosts! They are so genuinely warm and accommodating. Their staff Edwin and Maria are equally as amazing --- always smiling and saying hello. And guaranteed, you will want to take Parker and Stella home with you! As if that's not enough, the other guests staying at the Beach Bungalows were the best too! We became friends right away and spent the majority of our time hanging out all together! (Hi Betsy, Brooke, and Christina if you're reading this!) We clicked so well that everyone started offering to pitch in to cook "family-style" dinners on the patio for the first two nights instead of eating out!

We had originally planned to stay only 2 nights... loved it so much that we added a night... and then ultimately decided to upgrade to flying back to San Jose airport instead of taking a shuttle just so we could stay a 4th night!

Trish and Claudio,

I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful stay. You two are such a beautiful couple and I wish you all the best! Please call us if you're ever in Las Vegas! xoxo

Warm Regards,
Christine
