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
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 bike to rent also.
If you want to come here to take advantage of the great surfing, its best to leave your board at home and just rent a good one from one of the many surf shops locally. Airlines nowadays charge a fortune to take surfboards and board rental is cheap here.
The March house was a fantastic experience for my family. We celebrated my mothers 70th birthday here and had an incredible time. My children loved the capuchin monkeys that sat in the huge mango tree every day and walking right out the back to the magnificent beach. Yan gave us a fantastic ATV tour that included the beach, river crossings and the Costa Rican countryside and he was an amazing resource for everything. Both Yan and Melba the housekeeper where there when we needed them and invisible when we did not, very professional. I would highly recommend the March house experience and we will likely book it again in the future.
The home was perfect . Private, Safe , secure , clean , classy and beautiful . Yan provided as much support as needed without being intrusive to any extent . The location is incredible and I recommend renting an atv . There is a ton of space and watching the sunset over your own personal slice of the beach was incredible . Thanks yan !
March House is just AMAZING ... can´t be better. We spent a week with another family (4 adults + 5 kids within 5 and 9 y/o) and we almost cried when leaving March House. Yan and Melba were just perfect hosts and the house and environment is just a paradise.
Malpais and SantaTerese are simple and very nice to escape for lunch or dinner.
We went por Canopy and Surf classes nearby that were excellent both but always wntaed to return back to the house and enjoy music by the garden, relaxing at the gallery or spending hours at the sea snorkeling or playing with the waves.
Really hope we can return in a near future. THANKS!
Paradise!!!! My family and I had a great time at the March House, the house is beautiful and the property is just amazing. Waking up to the sound of the ocean and the howler monkeys just doesn't have comparison. And the beach right in front of the house is incredibly beautiful with the white pebbles sand and the palm trees, with no one out there but us.
We were greeted by Natallia, who was great and gave us all the information we needed, we had a cleaning staff everyday making sure everything was nice and clean and perfect. We didn't get to meet Yan, but I did talk to him on the phone and he was very nice and he provided us with all the information we needed.
If you are ever around MAL PAIS I truly recommend that you stay at the MARCH HOUSE, it really is a piece of paradise!!!!
The March House was phenomenal -truly a little piece of paradise. A beautiful cove is straight out the back door, and you can sit on the patio and relax to the sound and site of the ocean. The house is gorgeous - a dream home, and Yan was a great host. He arranged for us several fun activities (horseback riding on the beach, Stand-up-paddle, ATV tour...) Our stay was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend it.
My friends and I stayed at the March House from April 4th to April 9th 2014. We had an amazing experience there and fully enjoyed the villa! The house is just as beautiful as it looks on the pictures and the view on the beach is even more breath taking in real. There is a beautiful sunset one can enjoy everyday from the long chairs on the terraces! And breakfast outside is amazing.
Yan, the host is a very nice guy who has been very helpful from the minute we inquired about the house. He guided us on the activities around Mal Pais, the places to visit, where to eat... During our stay, he was very helpful and very quickly answered any of our query.
Thank you very much Yan for a being such a great host !! You have an amazing place , thank you for opening it to us for our short stay!
Hi Yan, sorry for the very late response, but we are very grateful to you for the wonderful holiday you gave us. We stayed at the March House from February 1st to February 7th 2014 (for the people who have more time; stay longer!). We had a great welcome after a beautiful car tour through the jungle. But for the people who don’t like such a tour, there is also a normal road, but our navigator wasn’t that good. The location of the house was amazing. The beach was only separated from the garden by a few palm trees. And also the house was great and the rooms were all nice. The service was great and two ladies and the guard were very nice and friendly. Marchhouse gave us really the feeling that we were on vacation, thanks! Yan was very friendly and helped us by planning some great trips, the route to a beautiful beach near Malpais, which restaurants are nice and many more. In the end the outlet of our car was broken and Yan helped us giving the route to a car garage, where the outlet was fixed for only 20 dollar! In summary, beautiful location, wonderful house, great service and so we had a legendary vacation! Thanks Yan! Cheers! Jan & Bart (and 7 other friends from Delft, The Netherlands)
Hi Guys! It was wonderful to host you all here at the house. You were all a pleasure and perfect guests. Do come back again one day for some Costa Rican Pura Vida, sunshine and smiles and I will take you on a fun ATV tour up to Playa Coyote. Hope your studies have been going well :-) Hasta luego, Yan

About the Host, Yan
Leaving the cut and thrust of working in the stock market in The City of London in 2004 I decided to embark on building this beautiful beach house in Mal Pais, Costa Rica, The March House.
The change of rhythm was the first and most soothing part to affect my senses after all the fast past and stressful existence in London.
The sound of the crashing waves, beautiful bird calls and listening to the families of Howler and White Face monkeys calling out to each other. Mango trees packed with fruit, coconut water almost on tap...this is about feeling part of nature and the environment.
But we all like our creature comforts, so I made sure that The March House takes care of that too. And just because you are close to the jungle you don't have to worry about a lack of local restaurants with cuisine from all over the world.Its catered for here.
So, for me there is a balance now, much more than I ever had in my Big City lifestyle in my last life! I believe that everyone has a chance to experience this even if its just for a few days or a few weeks.
And here, in this beautiful place in Mal Pais, you have it!
