About Noa Segev

We are a young family, two lovely kids and a dog. 9 years ago my husband and i traveled through Central America. Traveling through Costa Rica, we came across Cabuya village and fell in love with the place and the people here. Two years later we came back to visit and realize we really don't want to leave. we went back home packed everything with our dog and came to live here in Cabuya.

Noa Segev purchased this house in 2005

Guestbook comments from the manager

Noa & Reem,

Well life is certainly easy here in the Casa. The proximity to twn and still having a deep sense of countryside is just a gift. The birdsong mixes with howler monkey barking in a very singular key at dawn. Wow!

There is nothing like it.

I found the house and pool well designed and simple to care for and relax in. Well done.

We are so excited to get to know you better as we orient down here in our "home town" more and more.

Gracias and good health to your family.

A perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this house, the area, and the owners. The house had everything you would need and the owner checked in with us a few times to see how we were enjoying our stay. The local village is wonderful and friendly. It is a trip we will remember forever! We are coming back again soon! Thank you!!!

Secluded setting and abundant nature

  • 5 of 5

During the summer of 2013 my wife and I spent one month at the Newville Pool House and we were delighted when it was available the following January for another visit of ten days. The property is very nicely situated within easy walking distance to the shops, markets and restaurants of Cabuya and yet, since it is very secluded, affords a high level of privacy. The ocean is near enough that it can be heard at night. We enjoyed the richness of nature which surrounded us; a troop of howler monkeys often took up residence in a pochote tree next to the house; agoutis played in the back yard while iguanas fed on fallen hibiscus blossoms; flowers draw a multitude of butterflies and hummingbirds; birdlife is profuse. The house itself is beautifully designed, very light and airy, and a genial place to spend time when we were not out availing ourselves of the region's many natural attractions such as the beaches, the Rio Lajas, the Montezuma Waterfall, the nature reserve of Cabo Blanco, and more. We occasionally dined out at any one of the area's excellent restaurants but more often we prepared our meals in the well equipped kitchen and ate in. The bathrooms are more than adequate and the shower in one of them is particularly good. The husband/wife property management team is very gracious and no effort is spared to assure that our stay is as pleasant and comfortable as possible. I would enthusiastically recommend this property to a friend or a relative and we look forward to our next visit.

Very relaxing comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

House was really comfortable and a great place to relax. Noa and her husband were quick to reply if we needed any assistance.

The pool is perfect for kids as it is not too deep and just right for cooling off on a hot day.

Located in a lovely village. Would go back again if we return to Costa Rica!

The perfect spot to decompress!

  • 5 of 5

I did a ton of research on the Montezuma and Cabuya areas before we booked the Newville Pool House. That research definitely paid off, as I believe we ended up in the perfect place for our family.

We are a family of four (kids ages; 2 and 9). We wanted a quiet and peaceful location with a pool. We wanted access to beaches that were toddler friendly. And lastly, we wanted good food and culture close-by. We found all this in Cabuya and Montezuma. While Montezuma is buzzing with (mellow) energy and has a more tourist vibe, Cabuya feels like the end of the earth - a quiet fishing village bordering the Cabo Blanco Reserve - yet had wonderful restaurants and well-stocked markets. Make sure you get to La Panaderia, as well as El Coyote Cafe!

The house is cool and clean, bursting with creative construction, which we really appreciated. Due to the design of the home, the daylight floods in, eliminating the need for artificial light until sunset. The beautiful polished concrete also serves a functional purpose, keeping the house much cooler on the inside - it is also extremely easy to keep clean. Of course, the air-conditioned bedrooms were a welcome bonus. Having two bathrooms was very convenient; one had the more Tico-styled electric heated shower, and the other seemed to be connected to a hot water tank. Both provided nice warm showers! The furnishings and layout of the home was extremely kid-friendly, making for a very happy toddler our entire stay!

Noa and Jacob were very friendly and accommodating. Noa was available by phone at all times, willing to answer questions and address problems right away. When we arrived the pool pump had a leak, which Noa remained on top of until it was fixed. She also invited us to a local event at a beautiful yoga resort, which was a very sweet gesture.

I could go on and on. But perhaps the best testament would be that we plan to return in a couple of months and stay for six weeks! Our family is literally counting down the days!!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing!! My husband and I stayed in cabuya for a was such an awesome place and perfect for what we were looking for! We ended up renting a quad through Jenny at the coyote cafe(which was the best decision ever!) we had so much fun driving over to mal pais and Santa Teresa and haunting into montezuma for a beer at chicos! I think we payed about 180 for 4 days! The newville house itself was perfec. The pool was great for cooling off in at all hours of the day, the kitchen was a great perk, to be able to cook something instead of going out all the time! The bed was super comfy and the showers are works of art!! We will definitely be back to cabuya and SOON!! Thanks for everything Noa

3 blissful months in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from 3 incredible months at the Newville pool house, where we continued our regular life (work & school) but in a much sunnier, hotter and tropical environment! We travel a lot as a family but this was by far our best experience to date. It was our first visit to Costa Rica and we all loved it - and a big part of that was thanks to Noa and Jacob's incredible kindness and attention to making sure we were always comfortable.

So thank you Noa and Jacob!!! Your home was comfortable, convenient and cozy. We loved everything: from how easy it was to keep clean, to the pool that got LOTS of use, to the A/C that kept us cool when it got too hot, to Jacob's decorative concrete (so beautiful), to the amazing yard filled with all sorts of tropical fruit (including many we had never seen before), to the parrots and monkeys that passed by each day (including several other strange and fascinating animals). We looked at most of the houses in Cabuya, but we think this one gives you the most value for your money. The house was absolutely perfect for our family.

As for Cabuya, it's a safe and friendly family-oriented town away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Montezuma and Santa Teresa. Although a car would have been nice on occasion, we were able to save a fortune and still go wherever we needed by bus, taxi and walking. The two grocery stores in town were surprisingly well stocked too. And having the truck drive up to our front door every week with freshly-picked produce was beyond amazing.

Because we were busy with school and work, we didn't get to travel around the country, but that didn't matter: we found more than enough to keep us happy. We all loved playing in the ocean waves, cooling off in the river, visiting cemetary island and the Montezuma waterfalls, learning how to surf (careful, it's very addictive!), and visiting the Cabo Blanco national park. We got to see baby sea turtles released - a bit hit with our girls, who also took weekly horseback riding and music lessons, and learned some Spanish too in the process.

Noa and Jacob are a goldmine of information, and genuinely wonderful people. We miss you and your family, the tranquility of Cabuya, and the friendliness in everyone we met. We will definitely recommend this house to anyone thinking of visiting the southern Nicoya Peninsula.

And if you haven't been to Costa Rica, GO! It's beyond description, and we just saw a tiny corner of it.

Cabuya Beach
Car: not necessary

On Costa Rica’s ocean side, just between Mal-Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma, lies village of Cabuya. A wide unspoiled 3km beach reaches up to the first reserve in Costa Rica, Cabo Blanco. The water we drink in Cabuya comes from the reserve and its the tastiest water you will ever drink. Because the beach in Cabuya is a bit rocky, most of the time you will find the beach very private. You might see the fishermen go out to fish or someone walking in the send and looking for sea glass, shells and colorful stones. Almost everything is in a walking distance. Within 2 minutes walk you will find a bakery, a sushi bar, a lovely Internet cafe, two small local groceries where you will find anything you need from fishing gear to lovely organic fruits and vegetables at very low rates. Several local fishermen sell fresh fish. there are two surf point near by, one for beginners and one for more advanced surfers. Entering Cabuya is the beautiful river 'Rio Lajas' with water falls and swimming pools
