Description from owner


Setting the highest standard, this luxury beachfront home, The March House, oozes understated luxury, taste and style and looks onto a beautiful peaceful beachfront and garden setting within an almost “private” bay.

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. With a modern minimalist design mixed with beautiful tropical hard woods, this large house is the epitome of style and comfort with lots of space. When the doors are opened up towards the ocean it really brings out the feeling of "inside meets outside". Immediately this feeling brings relaxation and peace, such is the tranquility of this place

The house has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms at your disposal set out as follows:-

Large master bedroom occupying the entire upstairs, ocean view king size bed, lounge/den area, large bathroom with double shower, large tub, WC, double vanity and double closets

Two ocean view bedrooms, each with queen size bed, sharing a large bathroom with double shower, double vanity, WC and double closet. Hammock hanging outside each room.

Each bedroom has a great ceiling fan if needed for cooling, as too there are fans in the living and kitchen areas.Temperatures can vary between 25-30 degrees Celsius depending on the time of year.

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.

Interaction with guest

At The March House we aim to make your holiday experience an awesome one! We can help with any advice on things to do in the area, recommend good restaurants (reserve for you too!), arrange cars or ATV's Even if you want to have tours (horse, fishing, Zip lining, ATVs to remote beaches) arranged just let us take care of it, then arrive and enjoy. We are here for you to be there for you as much or as little as you wish. Over the years we have built a solid reputation which is why our guests come back time and again.
