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.

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. Jolene and Gary

We'd give it a six star rating if we could!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter the wonderful courtyard and see the inviting pool, beautiful landscaping and comforting terrace, you will feel a sense of relaxation. And once you've seen your amazing casita, you'll know you've made the perfect decision for your accommodation requirements. Gary & Jolene are wonderful people and the absolutely best hosts you could have. Breakfasts aren’t to be missed, especially Jolene’s french toast! Believe the reviews you read on VRBO or TripAdvisor, you won't be disappointed.

Top Notch! Wonderful hosts!

A very friendly, comfortable and luxurious home with the most gracious of hosts, jolene and Gary. Everything one would need if searching for privacy yet close to the hubbub of Tamarindo and its lovely beach.

Owner's Response: We could have hardly enjoyed guest more then we did you and Carol. Thank you for choosing us for your time to relax and regroup. We love it when Villa Andalucia sends our guest off refreshed and happy. You time here was enjoyed by us and our doggies too. The best part is you came back for your last night before you left. Wishing you both the best and I hope one day you might return. Jolene and Gary

Romantic Casita Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the best escape escape to Costa Rica at this B and B. We had the perfect quite vacation. Gary and Jolene are fabulous host that provide just the right amount of support for a perfect vacation. They're casitas are beautifully designed in Spanish colonial style. Everything was perfect from our first greating with a cold beer and freshly picked flowers to the delicious daily breakfast. They arranged our pick up and tours as we needed and gave us room to lounge around the pool and just enjoy our stay on other days. This is the perfect little getaway for a couple looking to getaway.

Only place to stay in Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Villa Andalucia. We knew after our first trip in 2015, we would be back as we enjoyed our stay so much.

The rooms and casitas are all individually decorated and they are amazing. We had one of the rooms in the house on this trip. Our room had everything we could need. From all the bathroom amenities (shampoo, conditioner, organic soap, make up remover etc) to the pay it forward basket which had some sunscreen, lotion etc left by other guests) to the medium sized fridge which was perfect to store water and of course, a six pack of Imperial! We had our own entrance and our own private courtyard furnished with rocking chairs and a hammock!

The location is perfect. A very short walk to the centre of town but yet still far enough away to get away from the noise at night.'

Breakfast is served Monday - Friday and Maria makes a mean pancake!

The best thing about Villa Andalucia is the hosts, Gary & Jolene. They are so accommodating and are a wealth of information on Costa Rica. They also have three lovely dogs - Ginger, Frida & Shadow which are a joy to be around as well!
