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 epic three month journey 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 Tamarindo

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.

We will definitely book again

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was excellent - beautifully and comfortably appointed suite with everything we could possibly need for 6 days - the same is true of the courtyard and pool. Breakfast prepared by Maria was artistically presented and delicious, great coffee and juice with something new and delicious every day. Location is great - walking distance to town and the beach, but it's out of the noise and busy nightlife so present during tourist season. We felt secure and totally comfortable in this amazing place. Just the art work and quality furniture were something to marvel at. Everything here is the highest quality and the hosts are extremely accommodating and welcoming. Can't imagine anything better than this.

Without a doubt, one of the best places to stay

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, me and my wife only stayed here for one night after returning from a full day tour, after staying in another location in Langosta. Jolene was extremely helpful before and during our stay, offering to pick up our luggage from our other location the night before so we could do the full day trip starting at 6:30am.

After a tiring day, as soon as we walked into the grounds of their property we were wow'ed with how beautifully kept and mantained the location was, from the pool to the plants to all the decorations.

We stayed in the Casita overlooking the pool, which for some may be small but for two people is perfect in size. It doesnt take long when walking into the unit to realize she is a professional interior decorator. They are very thoughtful to make sure that their guests have a comfortable stay, and are wanting for nothing.

It feels like staying at a relatives house who pays attention to all details, minus the nosiness. Overall it was a short but well worth stay.

Great B and B place!

  • 4 of 5

Property is beautiful, breakfast and attention to detail are great- Jolene and Gary were very helpful and extremely accommodating!! We have never done a bed and breakfast before and determined that it is not for us- nothing to do with the place or Gary/Jolene- just not for us is all. We did however, appreciate what great care and attention to detail Gary and Jolene put into everything and how responsive they were to all of us as guests. The other guests were awesome and the room was awesome. Thank you for everything! Recommend it if a bed and breakfast is for you!

Owner's Response: Hi Dan and Mary, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Villa Andalucia and your kind words about Gary, I, our property and what we offer. We throughly enjoyed having you stay with us as did the other guest. We are honored that we were your first stay at a bed and breakfast, but understand they are not for everyone. I hope that next year when you are visiting family and head to Tamarindo for some relaxation you will stop by and say hello. Jolene and Gary

Peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Where to even begin?! Jolene was so incredibly helpful leading up to our trip from coordinating airport transportation to booking a full day excursion for us. The warmth and hospitality her and Gary showed us our entire trip made us feel right at home on their beautiful property. The decor was beautiful, the room was so comfortable (slept like a baby), and the breakfasts Maria made were the best we had. Because Gary and Jolene have been in Tamarindo for 15+ years, they know all of the best restaurants, tours and beach spots. My husband and I could not recommend this little beach town or Villa Andalucia any more, and hope to bring friends and family back in the future.
