Recent Malpais reviews

  • Loved It

    "We spent most mornings, early, walking and hiking the area, turning right or left on all of the paths. The walks were roughly 1.5 hours and saw an abundance of wildlife(anteater, snakes, parrots, toucans, monkeys, iguanas, etc.) It was a nice way to start the day and get moving. This was our eighth trip to Costa Rica and second time at this house and our goal was hiking, fishing and exploring the back roads and restaurants. You need to drive to Mal Pais to organize your fishing with the locals. We caught a sailfish, barracuda, tuna, amber jack, spanish mackeral etc. Great eating. Bring it home or get a restaurant in Santa Theresa to cook you lunch with your fish. A really neat drive is turn right out the house and go to Coyote. You must drive through three rivers(shallow). The drive is about 50 minutes and when you come to the main intersection in Coyote go straight through and a restaurant on your left is a must(Best coconut shrimp ever) went here three times for lunch. The area is beautiful and out of the way which we liked. Bill and Frank were great. A must for Costa Rica."

  • Absolutely Amazing Beach front house

    "This was my third trip to Costa Rica, and by far the best. This house is truly amazing. It is positioned in a secluded private location with gorgeous views. few minutes down from Santa Teresa and all the amenities. Yan is very accommodating and coordinated all our activities and recommended fabulous beach front restaurants. Melba kept a very clean house and is a sweetheart. They also have all night security at the house so you feel extremely safe. If you are looking for a relaxing, remote and beautiful location I would highly recommend the March House."

  • Loved every minute

    "My dream came true - always wanted to visit Costa Rica and for my 40th my husband arranged everything. We spent 2 weeks in paradise. Our first week was by the Arenal volcano then to the beach area of Mal Pais. We spent 6 nights in this beautiful house - the house and property was just breathtaking. We absolutely enjoyed staying there, the property was so lush with tropical plants and so many trees - I am not a "pool" person, but the saltwater pool surrounded by the palm trees changed my way of thinking! We loved how the whole house could be opened up to feel the breezes, view the scenery and hear the wildlife (could hear some howler monkeys and saw them 3 times). The area was perfect for us, not too close and not too far from anything. The beach is about a 5 minute drive, there are great restaurants and 2 nights we used the the grill to cook fish we caught, and we even had breakfast 3 of the mornings at the house - grocery stores close by and the kitchen had everything we needed. One of my favorite parts of the trip and what I will truly miss is how beautiful the night sky is there. Stargazing there is amazing, especially from the 3rd floor open balcony on those unique hanging beds! For me this trip was a dream come true and this house, area, people did not disappoint. Also, have to mention that Jose the caretaker was so pleasant and helpful, we were unfortunately were a little late on arrival and he was so gracious about that."

  • Snowbirds

    "A tranquil retreat away from the beach but with brilliant pool overlooking the sea. Sit & watch the sunset plus the stars in the evenings. Plenty of birds & monkeys to observe nearby during the day. Excellent support from the staff, Soyaya gave good advice, the cleaner Elena was thorough & discreet & the on site caretaker gave the pool daily attention & was very pleasant. We truly enjoyed our 3 weeks here."
