10/10 Exceptional

Unique stay
Very unique place with a feel between boutique and hostel. The location is amazing right on a quiet section of Playa Grande, which has better surf and less people and noise than nearby Tamarindo. Very friendly and helpful host. There is a kitchen you can use to prepare meals, a spacious covered area to relax, a gym area with weights and yoga mats, and a beautiful courtyard with hammocks. The parking is safe and behind a coded gate. Great cafe nearby with great happy hour specials.

The Pipehouse is a gem. Such a quaint spot with a great vibe. The pipes are so cozy and the atmosphere is amazing. A great communal spot to relax in and meet new people. The kitchen is stocked with lots of supplies to cook a meal if you want to. The beach is steps away. Filipe and family are very inviting and make your stay the best. I would highly recommend.

Felipe was an amazing host! We had a blast… beach is right there and just a short walk to Tamarindo if you want to explore the neighboring town.

Great experience
Had an excellent stay at the Pipe House with my daughter. It was a unique experience and idea in a very relaxed atmosphere. It’s close to the beach and easily accessible from the busy Tamarindo via 1$ water taxi and 10 min walk along the beautiful beach to the hostel so great if you are back packing. Area has a couple restaurants/cafes as well. Host was very friendly, helpful, and flexible with check in/out and Pipe House, kitchen etc was clean and comfortable. Would def recommend if your looking for something different and quiet. Thanks for the stay!

Una experiencia perfecta
Excelente! Disfrutamos mucho nuestra estancia. El espacio de la habitación esta limitado por la misma estructura que tiene sin embargo resultó muy cómodo y agradable para descansar. Las áreas comunes muy espaciosas, tanto el comedor como la cocina, la cual es super amplia y con todo el menaje necesario para preparar y guardar tus alimentos. Igual el área de descanso muy bonito. Los baños y duchas cómodos y muy limpios. En general todo el lugar muy ordenado y muy limpio, todos los dias llegaron a limpiar y a desinfectar. Prácticamente frente a la mejor zona de la playa lo hace el lugar ideal para visitar. 💯

Excellent expeience sleeping in a pipe
Excellent experience. Pipe was clean and bed was confortable except that the air conditioning remote gets crazy at night. Location is not directly on the beach as we thought but it is within 30 seconds walk. The host was great too. You can directly rent a surfboard from him.
