About The March House...

The March House was designed to take advantage of its location at the beach, in a small bay, set within 2 1/2 acres of mature gardens. The ocean is right there on your doorstep you can almost touch it.

The March House is amazing. We don't normally splurge on such luxe accommodations (but our friend arranged rentals for this and the Mahogany House next door (also a very unique home)) for our group of 4 families/couples. How could we resist? Truly spectacular home with...More

About the neighbourhood
The property is located in the charming village of Mal Pais on the Nicoya Penisular of Costa Rica, fronting the Pacific Ocean.
Mal Pais is a quiet, safe, close knit neighborhood just minutes away by car from the bustle of Santa Teresa if you want it. The energy here is quiet and relaxing for you to do just that, relax if you want to in this amazing home and property.
Things to do...
Some ideas:

Fishing trips either in shore on a panga (local boat used for fishing), trolling for Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper (great fun) or on a deep sea fishing vessel for Marlin and Sailfish. On both of these options you will pretty much be guaranteed sighting Humpback Whales, dolphins, Manta Rays, Olive Ridley turtles etc. A real bonus!

Getting around
Getting around...
Usually the preferred and most practical way is by rental car. This stretch of coastline with many things to do and see stretches for around 15km, so exploring by car is the best option.
In town its easy to rent an ATV quad for anything from hours to days too. ATVs are great to explore up in the hills and mountains where its cowboy and cattle country
There are push bikes to rent also.
Car advised

You can either rent a 4x4 and drive. This journey takes around 4 1/2-5 hrs of which an hour and a half is on a ferry, crossing the Gulf of Nicoya from Puntarenas to Paquera. If you don't mind driving this is a nice experience.

The internal flight option lets you take a short 25 minute hop from San Jose to Tambor Airport on either domestic scheduled flights being through Natureair or Sansa. A charter flight is also a possibility should you be interested. Note: you can collect your pre arranged rental car at Tambor Aerodrome and drive just 40 mins to the house. Detailed directions are available at time of booking.
Either way we can then arrange to have a rental car waiting for your collection. If you would like a competi...
