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 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.

Beautiful property with wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This property was so much more than we expected! Jolene and Gary are amazing hosts and their beautiful property reflects their authentic warm and generous spirits. We enjoyed everything from the quiet serenity of the saltwater pool to the gourmet breakfasts. Having been our first trip to Costa Rica we were very much appreciative of their sharing of local knowledge and recommendations of where and (more importantly) where not to go. The property is conveniently located within a short walking distance of Tamarindo Beach and countless restaurants. We plan to return annually for many years to come to stay at this beautiful property and visit our friends Jolene and Gary!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy for this glowing review. It was and extreme pleasure having you and Tyson as guest. Thank you also for the hospitality you showed to Gary while I was out of town. Each day he would report back to me what fun he was having. I hope to see you when I am in Seattle and your whole group back with us possibly in 2018. Jolene and Gary

Best vacation ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was to celebrate mine and my husband's 20 year anniversary and I have to say it was the perfect location to do so. First of all Jolene and Gary made this trip so special by handling everything from booking excursions to suggesting the best places to eat. They know their stuff!!!! Every place they sent us exceeded our expectations! I have to say even as many excursions as we took I still felt like this was a super relaxing trip!! The town is so laid back, no need for ANYTHING dressy! Jolene & Gary's home is gorgeous, extremely relaxing, in a quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to everything! And, Maria's breakfast are amazing!! These people are the most hospitable and accommodating we've ever experienced. We will be going back to stay with Jolene and Gary again and again in our future travels!!! Highly recommend this quiet retreat to any couple wanting a nice place to stay to spend quality romantic time together!! ----The Stegall's from Texas

Stunning!!!

  • 5 of 5

The design of this property is breathtaking. Every detail and every angle is worth a 1000 photos! Jolene & Gary's warm and welcoming nature made the experience of our vacation complete. Without their open hearts we would have had an entirely different experience. Special thanks to Shadow, Frida & Ginger, an extension of the family and Maria and her crew certainly make the best breakfast in town!!!! Can not thank you both enough!!!!

Villa Andalucia was the perfect oasis in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love staying here and would definitely recommend this for any couple staying in Tamarindo . Garry and Jolene were extremely helpful and friendly hosts, and the breakfasts that they served were delicious. The room was extremely comfortable and clean and the outdoor amenities they provided were amazing.

Fantastic vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted a special vacation to celebrate my birthday and spent nine days at Villa Andalucia. What a fantastic place, we could not have asked for more. Gary and Jolene are two of the friendliest and hospitable people you could ever meet, and have created a little piece of paradise in Tamarindo. You can tell they love Costa Rica and are very happy to share information to make your stay special. Gary was spot on with his advise on local tours and restaurants and Jolene has created the most beautiful and comfortable casitas you could imagine. Just a fantastic time we will always treasure. Already scheduling a vacation at another property of thiers closer to home. Cant Wait!!!

Owner's Response: We loved having you two stay with us! However, my issue was that you were on the go so much we only wish you could have stayed here longer. I hope your travels south were enjoyable and you found some nice places. Who knows, perhaps one day we will be neighbors? Please come see us again if your plans call for a return trip to Tamarindo.
