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
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!
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 loved our stay at Villa Andalucia. The lodgings are exactly what we were hoping for and expecting based on the pictures - very luxurious, gorgeous setting and yard, and excellent breakfast every morning with the other guests. After spending a few nights near Arenal, we were hoping to spend a few relaxing nights spending the bulk of our days at the gorgeous beaches. The stay did not disappoint, and the lodgings were a big part of why this was one of our favorite vacations. We highly encourage anyone to stay there, and Jolene and Gary are wonderful hosts!
My husband and I stayed at Gary & Jolene's gorgeous home just last week and I have to say it is more beautiful then the pictures. They were amazing hosts - so helpful with coordinating excursions and went over and above what we were expecting. Maria made the most delicious breakfasts. This was our first time Costa Rica and we will definitely be back! They are located right in the town of Tamarindo so we were able to walk everywhere - 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping. Thank you so much Gary and Jolene for everything! Carrie & Kevin
We found Villa Andalucia on VRBO over a year ago. After looking at the beautiful pictures and reading all the amazing reviews, we knew we had to stay here and planned our whole trip around it. We couldn't have made a better decision. Jolene and Gary were so accommodating, from emails before the trip all the way until the moment we left. Jolene and Gary arranged for someone to pick us up and drop us off at the Liberia airport. They greeted us upon arrival and answered any questions. Gary even drove us around Tamarindo the first night and recommended restaurants and shops. He showed us where the market was, waited on us to get groceries, drove us back to the villa to put them away and then drove us to dinner. If we were leaving early in the morning before Maria's breakfast they made sure we had something to eat. Since we were out all day before the morning we left at 4:15am, they left us a note on our door to say goodbye. Jolene and Gary are amazing people and we enjoyed our time at the beautiful Villa Andalucia. We felt like we had our own little home in Tamarindo. Thank you for everything, Jolene and Gary! We loved the villa, the pool, and the food!!!
We had a wonderful week in Tamarindo Costa Rica! Upon arriving at Villa Andalucia we were greeted by Gary who graciously welcomed us and gave us a tour of the pristine property and of the town of Tamarindo which helped us tremendously! Villa Andalucia is off the beaten path but only by a 10 min walk or short beach cruiser bike ride which they provide. They offer a delicious homemade breakfast M-Sat and the beautiful saltwater pool is always open! This place is recommended for couples looking to have a quite romantic getaway.
... and still the greatest hosts, great setting and accommodations, not sure what else to say that has not been said. If you are looking to visit this part of CR, this is the property to stay at.
Doing nothing, doing everything, cooking in or dining out- you can do any or all comfortably and with the assistance of 15+ year residents of Tama as your hosts.
This is my second stay with Gary and Jolene - and really, there are not enough words to express how much they made both my stays with them beyond amazing.
The attention to detail, their breathtaking home, peaceful grounds, tranquil garden and pool, Maria's amazing breakfast... the list goes on and on for how Gary and Jolene deliver on making the stay perfect!
When I arrived, I had no idea really what I wanted to do or experience- however, Jolene bent over backwards to ensure I knew all that was avaialbe and assisted in making the arrangements for stand up paddle boarding, enjoying the beach club and making reservations for a sunset dinner cruise!
Gary and Jolene's warm, welcoming charm is like coming home to family. What's wonderful about them is that they honor as much or as little time as you wish and completely respect privacy and those that just wish to enjoy the surroundings and the romantic charm their home offers.
I love the location as it is off the beaten path and allows you to just stay in the beautiful garden space, but is close enough to walk into town to enjoy all the great food, shops and the beach, just minutes away.
If you enjoy snorkeling, surfing, fishing and all the water activies avaialbe, their son Brooks is available to be the best instructor!
I just can't say enough how wonderful it is to feel so welcomed into their home to which they put themselves out over and above to ensure their guests have and make their stay memorable beyond words.
Thank you again, for everything, Gary and Jolene, until next time!
We have a private surf instructor on staff who also does snorkel tours and has the only spearfishing lesson around. Brooks also does sports fishing tours on the new Boat, the 'Pica Pica.' For you birders and nature lovers out there, Brooks can arrange special wildlife tours for you in the afternoons or take you to the incredible Palo Verde Wetlands.
