Villa Andalucía is an elegant Spanish Colonial Designer Hotel in Tamarindo. We have two private Casitas, and a deluxe suite for vacationers. The design of Villa Andalucía was inspired by the Spanish Colonial homes of Spain and Granada, Nicaragua. This romantic Villa is perfect for couples, honeymooners and those in need of a relaxing getaway. Nestled in a quiet, private neighborhood of Tamarindo, Villa Andalucía is a 5 minute walk or quick bike ride to shopping, restaurants, and the beautiful beaches of Tamarindo.

The Tamarindo beach refreshing breezes will keep you cool on a hot day as you relax by the pool. Or, feel free to take a siesta on the daybed on the patio or just chill and read a book in one of the 3 hammocks. Mornings at Villa Andalucia are wonderful enjoying your delicious home cooked breakfast made by Maria Monday through Friday. Breakfast is served on the terraza overlooking the pool and garden or at the bistro table next to the fountain, take your pick. Sip your fresh brewed Costa Rican coffee from the coffee bar while you listen to the birds or howler monkeys that occasionally stop by.

Casita Andalucía has beautiful garden, pool, and bistro area views. This Casita has a kitchenette with a 2 burner cooktop, microwave, and mini fridge. The living area has a loveseat and armoire with flat screen TV, DVD player, and iPod cradle with radio. The private bathroom has a large, spacious shower with hot water. The comfortable bed in Casita Andalucia is queen size. Both of our Casitas have wireless internet and AC.

Casita Seville is located next door and overlooks a large, lush, private garden. In the garden is a rancho with two hammocks and a table and chairs for dining. Casita Seville has a kitchenette with a 4 burner cook top, microwave and full size fridge. This Casita also has a flat screen TV, DVD player, iPod cradle with radio, private bathroom and large shower with hot water.

The Villa suite, located in the main house is a lovely option for our guest who don't desire to cook on their vacation. It has a private patio and an ensuite bathroom with shower.

Our Casita guests are welcome to use the barbecue by the pool. All our guest have access to our 4 beach cruisers, boogie boards, and beach chairs. We have our own private surf instructor who can also coordinate special snorkel excursions and beach days. For the adventurous, Brooks does the only spear fishing lesson in the area. In March 2013, Brooks upgraded boats from the 'Condorito,' to the larger, 'Pica Pica,' a ponga for our guest use only. We are very excited to add beach day snorkeling and fishing tours and sunset cruises to our list of things to do while in Tamarindo. Email us for additional information.

About Jolene Clarke

Gary and I have lived in Tamarindo since 2001. We drove to Costa Rica with our son and another family from California for the adventure of a lifetime that lives on today. Upon arriving to Costa Rica after our three month trip through Latin America, we started a new chapter in our lives. An unlikely couple, Gary is from New Jersey and I, a native Californian, it is our love of travel and adventure that keeps us happy and laughing. Prior to moving to Costa Rica, Gary spent his first career of 30 years in Medicine and I was a teacher and Interior Designer. Once we arrived in Tamarindo laying in hammocks all day for 3 months was just not enough. So, Gary ventured into a new career in real estate to spice things up for the next 10 years. Gary retired once again in 2012 as one of the busiest most successful and well respected realtors in our area. In 2007, when our son Brooks left for college, we were lonely and thought it might be fun to rent out one of our casitas that we used only a couple times a year for family. Little did we know how much fun it would be and the friends we would make along the way. We invite you to come be our guest and see what life is like living in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We will show you this lovely country and Tamarindo through our eyes and give you, in our humble opinion, the best places to eat and send you on the adventure tours that best fit your vacation style. This is our family business and Gary, Brooks and I take great pleasure and pride in giving you the best vacation we can deliver. Come see us, we would love to have you as our guest. Gary, Jolene and Brooks Clarke

Jolene Clarke purchased this villa in 2005

Why Jolene Clarke chose Guanacaste

We have been traveling to Costa Rica for over 25 years. From the moment I stepped off the airplane on our first trip here I knew we would retire here one day. What we did not know was that the house we originally built to sell would turn out to be our dream home and fulfill my life long desire to have a Bed and Breakfast. We love Tamarindo for its great beaches, sunsets, wildlife, adventure activities and of course the vast array of restaurants. We have traveled all over the world and have never found a beach town we liked more. Tamarindo is small and unspoiled and is one place in Costa Rica and the world where you can go, do and see it all in one place on your vacation. We are the perfect property for honeymooner's, babymooner's, executive surf trips and those looking for a quiet, relaxing or active getaway. Arrive as guest, leave as friends!

What makes this villa unique

Our colonial architecture with furniture, art and accessories from our travels make for a warm, eclectic, welcoming environment. Plus, you can't beat the pool and garden areas to relax after a day at the beach or a canopy tour. You will love your 'Casitas for two,' that was decorated lovingly over the years for your pleasure and comfort. I love how our Villa has many different areas to enjoy, the pool, the rancho, the bistro area and the grand patio, something for everyone. Of course Maria's great breakfast is definitely the icing on the cake each day.

Home Away from Home in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon in August 2016 and were very impressed by the level of comfort and service that Jolene provides. This is more than just a rental - it includes breakfast, a tour of Tamarindo, day trip planning services, and daily cleaning services of the Casita. Although Tamarindo can feel a bit underdeveloped than what most Americans are used to, Villa Andalucia is top-notch and provides everything that you would find in a nice B&B/hotel in the States. The little touches in the Casita were awesome - Costa Rican coffee, bug spray and sunscreen, nice plates/glassware, a spice rack, environmentally-friendly soaps, lotions, shampoo and conditioner, board games, local newspaper/magazines, a safe, fresh flowers, etc.

A definite recommendation for anyone traveling to Tamarindo! Jolene, Gary, Brooks and Kyle know the area so well that they will be provide you a list / booking services of things to do to make your vacation very enjoyable. They are also extremely responsive which is appreciated for those traveling internationally.

Amazing get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently had the most incredible stay at Villa Andalucía! This gorgeous property is even more so in person than in the pictures! Jolene has done a phenomenal job on the décor and has just simply thought of it all when it comes to amenities in the casitas as well as in the main house! We enjoyed our tour of the town with Gary when we first arrived in Tamarindo! It gave us an idea of where everything was so that we were not wasting any time while we were there trying to figure it out on our own! Jolene and Gary are such wonderful hosts that are always very quick to help you get your next excursion planned! We enjoyed surfing with Brooks, fishing with Petra, a combo ATV/zip lining excursion, and some much needed down time on the beautiful beaches that were all amazing! In addition, Maria makes a wonderful breakfast each morning of your stay that just cannot be beat! Having an amazing breakfast, in an amazing place, allowed us to also make some amazing friends while we were there too! Jolene and Gary, thank you so much for your hospitality while we were there! We cannot wait to plan our next visit!!!

Amazing honeymoon destination!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Andalucia and had an incredible stay! We arrived in Tamarindo with absolutely nothing planned because we were sick of planning our wedding, and Jolene and Gary gave us wonderful recommendations throughout our trip. The accommodations were beautiful and breakfast was delicious. The town/beach is a quick walk away with plenty of good restaurants and fun things to do! We had an awesome time snorkeling with Brooks and utilized the provided beach chairs and boogie boards to hang out at the beach. Jolene and Gary recommended an adventure day excursion including horseback riding, tubing down the rapids, zip-lining through the canyons and ended with a mud bath and hot springs. We had so much fun getting to do all of those activities in one day! Some restaurants we enjoyed included La Palapa, El Chilito, and El Capitan Suiza. Hoping to visit again in the future!

Beautiful property, and amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week at this property in Tamarindo. It was perfect. The apartment was beautifully decorated, as is the rest of the property - it's the kind of place we all want to live in. We could easily walk to restaurants and the beach in five or ten minutes. The kitchen and fridge in our apartment were very useful amenities. Each morning my husband would smoke a cigar in their back garden, and each morning he was visited by a couple of howler monkeys.

However, what made this stay one of our best at a VRBO property is the family that owns and runs it. Jolene and Gary go well above and beyond expectations in their home. They were quick to answer any questions we had before we arrived, and their knowledge of the area is outstanding. Their restaurant suggestions were all perfect. They set up all our excursions for us - all we had to do was get in the car, which picked us up at the property - and go. The breakfasts Maria makes are delicious and provided a perfect start to our days. I've never felt so pampered before in a vacation rental.

I usually search through many properties when searching for a vacation place, but this property was the first on my list, and I was enchanted with the photos. I am so happy that this property caught my eye. It's as beautiful in real life as it is in the posted pictures.

We're already discussing when we can return. We loved the area, which in large part was due to the excellent care with which we were treated. Everything Jolene and Gary do is with the goal of making the vacation easy, low-stress, and fun. If you are looking for a fun, easy place to vacation, look no further!

Thanks, Jolene and Gary!
