“Unique and Extraordinary”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Although we've stayed at some of the most highly rated properties around the world, the Villa Andalusia will have to be at the top of our list. The property itself is a study in detail and perfection of a tropical villa and reflects the talent, love and care of Jolene and Gary in creating a residence full of character, warmth and charm. The rooms and suites are luxurious and comfortable at the same time. And the common areas of patio, pool and living room are delightful and welcoming. Jolene and Gary could give the course on excellence in innkeeping and are the most gracious and warm and real hosts we have come across. Wonderful hosts, wonderful accomodations and a great ocean beach make Villa Andalusia the place to go for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.

Room Tip: The suites are spacious and private.

Gary and Jolene were very warm and welcoming and made our stay in Tamarindo wonderful. We stayed in the separate casita which had everything that we needed for our one week stay. Every morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast made by Maria. Gary took us on a tour when we arrived and gave us good recommendations on beaches and restaurants. Go to Lolas...beautiful beach and good food! We would highly recommend Villa Andalucia and look forward to returning to Tamarindo and staying there again!!

Up every morning early to enjoy every minute of this wonderful B&B. Drank our coffee swaying in our hammocks, then joining other visitors for delicious breakfast prepared by Maria. Jolene is a talented interior decorator which added to our enjoyment of the entire property. After a fun filled day on the beach or catamaran, we would jump in the pool surrounded by peaceful, lush gardens. We thank Gary and Jolene for their hospitality and helping us make reservations, taking us on a tour of the town and transportation to/from the airport. Can't wait to go back!

Our hosts Jolene and Gary were warm, inviting and created a tremendous experience for us in Tamarindo. We stayed in the main house with private bath and patio, but felt very comfortable sharing the family courtyard and pool.
Our suite was beautifully decorated with a Spanish colonial grandeur. The casitas would have suited us perfectly if we were staying a week or more, but we only had 3 nights this time in Tamarindo. The breakfasts were nicely presented, hearty and changed daily. Gary gave us a tour around town as soon as we got there and pointed out various points of interest and gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants.
We would highly recommend this holiday rental for singles or couples.

Gary and Jolene were very inviting and extremely informative.We stayed in the main house and found everything to be better than advertised. Our hosts took the time and made every effort to insure that we were comfortable with our room and our travels about Tamarindo. Priceless information provided with grace.

This was our second stay at Casita Sevilla. Last time we stayed for a week, this time we stayed for 9 days in February 2013. All I can say is that everything other reviewers are saying about Jolene and Gary is absolutely true! Their property is beautiful. They pay attention to the smallest details like having fresh flowers in your room. The grounds are meticulously kept, and I am convinced Maria makes the best breakfasts in Tamarindo!

If you have never been to Tamarindo before, do yourself a favour and take the advice of your hosts. Their first priority is to ensure their guests have a good time. They will provide you with suggestions on where to eat, what tours are available, and other activities. We rented a car (although not necessary to have a great time). Gary gave us directions to three other beach locations to try out that were all within a half an hour from Tamarindo. They were great places we never would have found on our own! They also provided us with the use of their beach towels, cooler, boogie boards and beach chairs. They also have bicycles for the guests to use if they wish.

This trip Gary also took us and two other couples to a local ‘fiesta’ in Brasilito. Each community has their own which is similar to a county fair, only these fairs have bull riding! It’s not just lip service when I say that these two go out of their way to ensure you enjoy their little piece of paradise!

Villa Andalucia is well equipped and comfortable; we stayed one week in the Casita Seville. The casita and grounds are beautifully decorated, including fresh flowers. Gary and Jolene are very warm and welcoming and are glad to offer suggestions for restaurants and activities. The breakfasts Monday-Friday were a different theme each day, with lots of fresh fruit. The weather in February is beautiful, with warm sunny days and a nice breeze. We did the all day adventure trip to Hacienda Guachipelin (zip lining, horseback ride, river tubing, mud baths, hot springs, delicious buffet lunch), which was a lot of fun. We also took a surf lesson! If you get the opportunity to go to one of the local fiestas, it will be a highlight of your trip. We definitely hope to have the chance to return to Tamarindo and Villa Andalucia!
