About this property

The original in high end luxury for Mal Pais
The March House has always been a standout. The house sits on it’s own private cove, and is surrounded on every side by trees, and ocean. The March House is outside of the main town area, so there is no noise, and no dirt from cars and motorcycles. Just you, and the sounds of the waves and the local birds and monkeys.

The March House has a beautiful huge kitchen and dining area, and 5 totally separate rooms and 4 bathrooms. 3 Rooms have their own bathrooms, 2 have a shared bathroom with locking doors. Whether you are traveling alone, or with other couples, everyone can have a lot of privacy.

The March House is walking distance from Mary’s Restaurant, a grocery bodega, and the town fishermen, so whether you like to fish, or just cook a fish, you can go by foot. You are also close to the canopy tour, and the Mal Pais surf shop and their stand up paddle board tours.

The goal here is to live in an upscale version of how the locals choose to live. Get away from the city, take a dip in the ocean, go paddle boarding, put coconut water on your face, make a morning smoothie. Did we mention the Yoga platform? You get the idea.

This property is located near Mar Azul. Mar Azul is a left hand point break that also has a right with the correct swell direction. South swells with an outgoing tide make for the best waves. The peak begins at a large rocky slab that can be exposed on low tide. There is also an easy-going inside peak that can work well and offer long (200 meters) rides. Mar Azul is somewhat fickle, not breaking all the time, but when it does break it is one of the best advanced surf spots in Malpais.

This property is also located near Playa Santa Teresa. A 2km stretch of some of the most consistent beachbreak on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The beach's Southeast/Northwest orientation makes it ideally exposed to swell angles from below 195 to over 220 degrees; although it breaks best with SSW combo swells. While ostensibly a sandbar beach break, the unique bottom configuration of sand over rock reef gives form to the consistently breaking peaks for which Santa Teresa is famous. These well-groomed sandbars offer peaky, punchy rights and lefts that are just plain fun when it is under head high. But the game changes once the swell goes overhead, offering up juicy outside walls that connect into grinding inside barrels.

This property is also located near Roca Mar/Suck Rock. A grindy, challenging right hand reef break located at the West end of Playa Santa Teresa. It is also known as "Suck Rock," because the wave jacks up out of deep water, doubling up over a dry reef as it peels across into deeper water. Deep, spitting tubes are the reward for skirting the "Dreaded Spine."
