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.

Welcoming, comfortable, great insight!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the last part of our honeymoon and it was one of the best parts of our trip. Abbie was there when we were and she was great! She gave us a tour of the town and pointed out great restaurants and also gave us recommendations for activities. The villa itself is just beautiful and cozy. The meals are amazing and it is so fun to get to know other people staying there! We loved our stay and are definitely planning to come back! Thanks for everything!

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was nice we experienced our first visit to Costa Rica environment beauty. Had to remind ourselves we in Jungle few times when we had little visitors at night & temporary water outage ! Our favorite little friend was Rojas who visit us 1 morning @ 145am! Otherwise everything was prefect our host Jolene was very friendly & welcoming. Abbie did a great job filling in and helping us with any issues, questions directions, recommendation's. I would recommend this property to any couple wanting to visit Tamarindo CR. Our suggestions: beach then walk South about 200 yards more private beautiful perfect for surfing. dinning El Chiringuito Tour Diamante zipline and Bula Bula hotel up river ride.

Never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Gary and Jolene greeted us like we were family. Gary gave us a personal tour of town on the first day and gave us recommendations on restaurants. Maria’s breakfast and coffee in the courtyard were the highlight of every morning :). Their property is an easy walk to the beach, shops, and food. We saw howler monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds! If you need a lazy day, I recommend checking out the Langosta Beach Club by the beach, which Gary has all the details. We will be coming back and recommending to all our friends and family. My only regret is only staying one week :(

In a word... Amazing. We loved every minute of our stay and can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin?? Gary and Jolene were unbelievable hosts. Jolene was unfortunately out of town during our stay, but Gary took impeccable care of us. Every event he helped organize (which he didn't have to do!) and every recommendation he made was spot on. Our room was absolutely perfect - cozy and quaint, and offered everything we could possibly need. Our favorite part were the breakfasts made by the lovely and talented Maria - I'm still dreaming about them! It was so much fun sitting around the breakfast table, mingling and getting to know the other guests. We had such a unique and incredible experience, we're already planning our trip back to Villa Andalucia. Actually, don't tell Gary and Jolene but we're moving in!!

Special place!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Andalucia did not disappoint! Location was great, just a quick walk to the beach. Property was absolutely gorgeous. We stayed in Casita Seville, which was perfect, from the beautiful decor to the kitchen stocked with everything you need. Very comfortable bed as well. The service Jolene and Gary provided from the day we booked our stay until the day we checked out was top notch. Before our stay Jolene was extremely helpful with booking transportation, massages, and whatever else we needed. She was away while we stayed there so we did not get to meet her unfortunately. Shortly after we arrived Gary took us for a drive around town to show us where everything was. He was spot on with all of his recommendations for excursions, restaurants, etc., as he knows so much about the area. Gary took care of booking/reserving anything we wanted to do while in Tamarindo. Maria’s breakfast were delicious every day and a great way to start the day! Can’t imagine staying anywhere else if...when...we return to Tamarindo.
