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!
