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 the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula 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.

Since then all we want is to share this wonderfully peace of heaven with others. My husband being an artist and an engineer, built this vacation house we offer by himself. I take care with a lot of love for our vacation rental house. we are both near by 24 hours a day, so it is easy for us to take care personally for any problem, request or just questions you might have during your vacation here.

please feel free to ask us anything you have in mind

Noa Segev purchased this villa in 2010

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house is far from a normal "rent me for a week villa". Every sink and faucet have been hand crafted by an artist. Showers and jaccuzi are one of a kind. Same goes for the pool with its waterfalls and jetstreams.

Typical daily routine:

Took the coffee to the beach before the kids woke up. Short jump to town and we're back with hot pastries from an excelent bakery. Discovering nearby beaches with the kids. 5 minute walk from the house and we're selecting from the latest catch of the local fishermen. The first is grilled, second is fried and the third was BBQ'ed. The house has it all, fully equipped with new and stylish appliances and furniture.

Some pool time, some jacuzzi time and back to the private beach for the sunset. To finish the day we crossed the road for some pizza at Marys Resturant.

For us this was the best vacation we could ask for:

Complete privacy and silence (apart from the local cows and monkeys)

Beautiful beach a minute walk from the house (actually heard the waves in the living room)

Unique styling and design which made staying at home an attraction by itself.

We could not stop saying, "It really doesn't get any better then this". A ten day trip for my husband and I. This house is beautiful, private, tranquil and very romantic, perfect in every way. The pool is for lounging. A quick walk to the beach and you will discover your own natural tide pool. Ours was a natural infinity pool. Restaurants are a short drive away. Mary's is across the street, with wonderful food. We enjoyed two evenings at Moana Lodge, a short walk away, for tapas, fabulous drinks and a sunset that will take your breath away. Noa took care of everything, Miguel picked us up at Liberia airport after a direct flight from Minnesota. Noa arranged for a massage with Loude, so wonderful I scheduled another. I highly recommend a stay at Marakay for couples or families. I only wish I could keep it just for myself.

THE HOUSE WITH THE "WEIRD CHIMNEY"

THE HOUSE WITH THE "WEIRD CHIMNEY"
  • 4 of 5
Of course there's no need for a fireplace in Mal Pais but the chimney reference is what the locals called the 2-story high mosaic-like structure that is actually the wall for the 1st & 2nd floor showers. The mosaic glass allows you to look out at nature while you stand under the rain shower head. Coming from New England, we had a good laugh at the chimney reference! This was our 3rd trip to Mal Pais & we found this house to be well-designed, highly functional & reasonably priced. We slept five adults very comfortably. The pool is definitely not a lap pool but was so relaxing to lounge in & cool off throughout the day! Just outside the property, a small troop of Howler monkeys visited as well as some free range cattle (more likely escapees from one of the nearby fincas!) Lots of birds to see & hear in the nice shady trees. There's a beach in walking distance (about 3 minutes) that's lovely to stroll & admire the beautiful Pacific sunsets. We didn't try swimming there on account of all the rock formations & waves; preferred swimming & snorkeling at nearby Secret Beach. Lots of consistent surfing at nearby Playa Carmen. Recommend fishing trip, horseback riding & Mal Pais Canopy zipline (Look for Ollies Adventures in Santa Teresa & ask for Adrian Nunez, he can set you up for just about anything & everything!) Don't forget smoothies at Maracuya & breakfast at The Bakery in Santa Teresa...Yum! House in walking distance to Mary's Restaurant, great food & three nights with live music. Spanish Karaoke & Salsa dancing at nearby Rancho Mal Pais. Noa & her husband were very friendly, attentive & accommodating. The house was very clean & well-maintained. An active wasp nest was taken care of immediately. I may be a bit spolied, but the only suggestions I have are that the grill be gas vs charcoal & I prefer a dryer vs hanging clothes on the line. We would definitely rent again & highly recommend this house.

Traumhaus in traumhafter Umgebung!

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren im November für 2 Wochen zu Gast in Mal Pais und hatten eine wunderbare Zeit! Nach 2 Wochen Rundreise waren wir froh, in ein gut ausgestattetes, gepflegtes, ruhiges "Heim" zu ziehen. Das Haus liegt abseits vom Trubel und nur wenige Gehminuten vom Strand entfernt. Unser 3-jähriger Sohn hatte einen Riesenspaß im Pool und beim Reiten, Fischen, Beachen und die Gegend erkunden verging für uns alle die Zeit viel zu schnell!
Noa war jederzeit zu erreichen und immer bemüht, uns unseren Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten.
Wir kommen wieder!

Gorgeous unique house, Malpais

  • 5 of 5
Drove from San Jose with my family for a stay here at the Marakay house--after seeing the listing, I turned to my brother and asked "Do we really need to look anywhere else?" The answer was no.

If anything the listing description under-sells the house. A great amount of creativity and skill went into it, which helps make the stay much more than a place to rest your head. Noa was great as a hostess, both extremely responsive and--uniquely--was actually interested in making sure we had a great time there. Quite the opposite of the 'absentee owner' experience I've been used to.

The house is very private and quiet, and extremely relaxing--the ocean is within a couple hundred meters and can be heard from the house. Having a vehicle would definitely be a plus, as the town center is a few kilometers away, but well within biking/ATV distance.

Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely recommend to anyone, as well as perhaps stay again there ourselves.

Great house, great location, great owners!

  • 5 of 5
This house was just what we needed. My wife and I brought our son along and the house itself was entertaining enough. Not giant or overdone, just perfect and quirky in a great way. The pool and the grotto jacuzzi was entertainment enough but the quiet area south of town made it a perfect get away. Easy access to the best beaches and sightseeing without feeling like we were in Disneyland. Really a great place and Noa and Jacob are great in every way. Obviously, can's say enough good things about our stay!!

Unique House

  • 5 of 5
After quite a bit of research, my boyfriend and I decided to stay at the Marakay House in Mal Pais for 4 days during our vacation to Costa Rica. The drive to Mal Pais gets a bit rough in places but very beautiful. This house is very unique and all the stonework is really cool. Some great things about staying here: your own pool, short walk to the beach (although keep in mind it is rocky), across the street from Mary's (amazing restaurant!), close to great beaches and Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and bars for a fun night out. I would definitely recommend taking a surf lesson with Guillermo - he was fantastic! Oh, and take a hike through Cabo Blanco to the secluded beach. My boyfriend decided to propose here!

For the best pacific sunsets go to Mal Pais/Santa Teresa, the famous surfer's paradise, where people from around the world gather to challenge Playa Carmen's heart pounding surf breaks and enjoy the beach and night life. Growing rapidly in the last ten years, it not only attracts surfers but party people (and investors) from around the world. Playa Hermosa, further north is more difficult to get to, and has fewer facilities. And, like the name implies, the beach is breath taking.
