About the Owner
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

The best of the best!
Most romantic and exquisite rental in Tamarindo!
Thank you again Jolene and Gary, and we will definitely rent from you again in the future.
Exceedingly beautiful Villa in Tamarindo
The best I've ever been to!The best I've ever been to!
The property itself is amazing. They have done such a lovely job on the grounds. It is so relaxing and peaceful, you don't really want to leave the pool area.
We stayed in the smaller of the two casitas and it was beautiful. Jolene has done such an amazing job of decorating the interior. The casita was very well stocked. They had all the equipment you would need to cook on site including spices, coffee etc. The bathroom was stocked with shampoo, conditioner and even face cleansing cloths.
They serve breakfast weekdays and it was fantastic. Maria is an incredible cook. Fresh fruit, french toast, omelets etc. (each day has a different speciality).
The other guests at the hotel were great. Everyone got along so well that we tended to linger after breakfast for some interesting chats!
The location is perfect. Just outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown but less than a 5 minute walk.
Gary and Jolene are fabulous hosts. They really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are what makes Casa Andulucia so special. The only bad thing about it is that eventually, you have to leave!
PS - I would recommend the turtle tour with their son Brooks (if in season). He was a fantastic guide!
Heaven on Earth
From the Owner
“We had 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!”
Activity and Interests
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.

From the Owner
“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.”
