“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Villa Andalucia is a beautiful and unique property. Gary and Jolene are available to make your stay as memorable as possible and just what you are looking for. They are knowledgeable about what is available and share a wealth of information with you. Jolene and Gary are the perfect hosts and you feel their warmth from the moment you have contact through your entire stay.

Maria prepares a lovely breakfast and if you have food preferences they are more than happy to accommodate. It is a short walk to the beach and they have whatever you need to make your stay extremely comfortable.

Room Tip: We stayed in the casita and really loved it!

Literally just back from our 10 day stay with Gary and Jolene - hard to know where to start with the accolades. From our pickup at the airport by Jolene we knew were in the hands of experienced hosts whose attention to detail was apparent. Gary took us grocery shopping and provided restaurant advice along with an introduction to the Langosta Beach Club. He also took us and the other couple to Lola's for lunch one day and was always there to help. Maria's breakfasts under the watchful eye's of Gary and Jolene were very well done. We liked having the bikes to use around town as well. Memories forever - wonderful people! Our sincere thanks.

Is there an option for 6 stars? 10 stars? Villa Andalucia deserves them all. The owners, property, location and overall experience was truly fantastic! Jolene, the owner, is an interior designer and it shows. The main house and villas are impeccably decorated creating a calming yet unique ambiance. Jolene and Gary were the perfect hosts - giving phenomenal recommendations in the area. We stayed in the main house and felt the utmost amount of privacy. Having said that, it was so nice to have breakfast with the other two couples staying in the villas. We will be back!!

Room Tip: All three rooms are fantastic!

Villa Andalucía is a charming little B&B nestled off the main strip in Tamerindo. All of the reviews are true and I promise you will have a wonderful time if you stay here. Gary and Jolene will make you feel at home, take you on a private tour of Tamarindo, suggest the best places to eat and provide you with interesting conversation and laughter. The accommodations are very clean, comfortable and private, in fact the entire property is pristine and every piece of furniture and artwork has a little story behind it. If you’re a foodie, get ready for Maria’s Pinto Gallo, French toast and pancakes, not to mention the fresh fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice. We truly loved this place, it’s full of warmth and love, and without a doubt, you’ll want to come back.

Room Tip: Definitely try and get one of the two villas. Casita Andalucía has the best view in our opinion. We...

It was 14 years ago I proposed to my lovely Wife in the little town of Tamarindo, so we decided to return and see how much it has grown. It was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast, Villa Andalucia. It was Fantastic, the Gary and Jolene were incredible with their knowledge of the area, things such as where to eat, where to shop, the doos and dont's. We accompanied them to local markets even a Fiesta. Something no one thinks of is the holiday time wasted wandering around in search of one thing or another. When we return we will most definitely
Stay here.

Gary and Jolene,
This was our first experience with VRBO outside of the U.S. I read your reviews before deciding on your place for our stay. The comments were all positive , and I liked the fact that there were many recent reviews. The experience was everything the other reviewers expressed. When we travel, we like to experience the area as the locals see it. You as host, helped us see as much of the culture and the area itself as possible. You were gracious host that took us to a local fiesta, took us to a produce market, and took us to another beach area for lunch. You reccommended many restaurants which were all wonderful. You also told us about a small flea market in the town on the weekend that sold things from local artisans. We enjoyed our accommodations at your bed and breakfast. They were beautifully decorated inside and on the grounds. We enjoyed spending time with your other guests, eating breakfast together, going to restaurants with them, and traveling to other places. We loved Maria's cooking; it was as great as all of the reviews. You were also so kind to send a loaf of the German bread used to make the French Toast, home with me. It was a nice treat that I shared with my family when we returned. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of your place, and liked the fact that everything in the town of Tamarindo was in walking distance. You as host, made this experience stand out above other travel we have done.Thanks so much for everything you did to make this vacation one of our best ever. Richard and Wanda
