Why Us


The Pipe House began as a dream, an elusive essence that guides our hearts.


The Pipe House began as a dream, an elusive essence that guides our hearts. Conceived with one goal in mind, The Pipe House is designed for living the beach experience to the fullest. Costa Rica has some of the most beautiful beaches around the world to offer, and Playa Grande stands out of the rest. Blessed by marvelous sunsets, white sands and world class surfing, Playa Grande combines great food, outdoor activities and relaxation into a perfect mix for anyone. The Pipe House is a unique place to visit only steps from the beach. Located within a gated community the nine bedrooms that make the house are built entirely by hand within recycled concrete pipes, offering a cozy and artistic design. Complementing the six bedrooms there are four bathrooms divided in two separate areas . The ranch area hosts an open living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Sitting under two trees called "Matapalo" the ranch is always cool and shady even in the BBQ area. With outdoor living in mind, relaxing at The Pipe House is easy as the sound of the breaking waves and the singing birds tune in a non-stop natural melody. Monkeys, squirrels, iguanas, parrots and many other animals can be seen regularly either eating off our mango and guayaba trees or chewing into the coconuts on the property.


Since camping here as kid almost 30 years ago, and now growing the international outreach of The Pipe House seems surreal. We are very blessed to share such a peaceful place to stay, just steps from one of the most beautiful national parks in Costa Rica with world-class surf, our own wellness and fitness retreats, and more adventure tours. The adventures are endless with beautiful mother nature surrounding the Pipe House. We look forward to hosting you!

This place is a MUST if you come to Costa Rica! It was much better than we expected- the boutique 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!
