Magical place. Right beside the beach. Morning runs along the 7km sand. Monkeys saying good morning. Sunsets with our toddler running naked in the water. This place is picture perfect. The pipes are comfy and uber cool. Bathrooms are clean and easy. Only good things about this place and location. Remote enough but next to Tamarindo if you need more interaction. We loved it so much we are coming back for our last night of this adventure. Highly suggest these pipe house dreams
This place is incredible!!!! We came to the beach in Costa Rica to surf and enjoy the outdoors, and we got SO much more staying with Filipe!! Not only was there a beach clean up the first morning we were there (that Felipe helped coordinate with a group from Austin, TX), we took surf lessons from a friend of Felipe’s, got amazing food at Cafe Mar Azul (a restaurant a few minutes walking down the road), and also met amazing people staying in the other Pipes. Felipe designed an incredible communal space, that has a yoga area, full kitchen (that we cooked many a breakfast on), outdoor shower, indoor showers and changing rooms, hammocks, lounge chairs, and more! The Pipes were super clean and cozy, all the space you need for two people and a couple traveling backpacks. Most of your time is spent outdoors anyway, so it was really nice to have a little nook to go to sleep and cuddle up in :). 10 out of 10 would recommend this place! Water was 80 degrees and surf was incredible (always surf at high tide, low tide is a lake out front), Star-filled skies at night, a 2 min boat ride across the River mouth to Tamarindo (7 min travel time total including walking down the beach to the water taxis), and the opportunity to meet and hang out with amazing people. Stay at Pipehouse if you want a true Costa Rican beach experience, and are interested in really finding out what ‘pura vida’ is all about :).
This place is a MUST if you come to Costa Rica! It was much better than we expected- the hostel, location, everything! It was super clean. There’s workers there constantly cleaning and making sure the common areas stay tidy. The rooms are big enough for 2 people, but it’s also small enough that only the 2 of you fit there...meaning you gotta somehow make room or store your luggage elsewhere. Felipe is very accommodating and an amazing host. He lets you rent out his surfboards for the day at a very low fee. The hostel is steps away from the beach a very empty, beautiful beach at that. It’s a short walk to Tamarindo if you walk left by the shore and cross the river. I would definitely be back and recommend this place to anybody that I know coming this way!
Pipe House es un concepto distinto de alojamiento: moderno, creativo, con un justo equilibrio entre espacios privados y compartidos, perfectamente equipado, suma limpieza, a escasos metros de una playa dentro de un Parque Nacional y sobre todo, eso que le aportan sus Host! Una gran experiencia a metros de Tamarindo pero muy lejos a la vez! RECOMENDADO!!!!
