We had a great 3 night stay at Joya. The Garden studio is beautiful with it's own deck overlooking the koi pond. Paulina was so friendly and welcoming, and keeps things spotless. We did not take the breakfast option as we were usually out early,...More

Thank you for this recommendation. I am glad that you could make the place 'your own'.Just by its location the garden studio has become a favourite amongst quite a few of our guests who appreciate doing their own thing, in a peaceful, "green" environment. Hope...More

This is the second time I have stayed at Joya, both while on motorcycle rides around NZ. And I will continue staying there every time I'm in Nelson! We stayed in the garden cottage, behind the main house, and loved it. The cottage has everything...More

Glad that you liked it here both times, even though there were quite a few years in between. The cottage is indeed a good place to be with its its deck and the various water features. It is a goldfish pond though. They just have...More

We struggled to find somewhere in Nelson and luckily found Joya Garden & Villa Studios. The breakfast was up there as one of the best I've had at a B&B. Simple food but prepared with love. Home made muesli, tea, fruits, breads, omelette, coffee :)...More

Thank you for your appreciation. I am glad you liked the food and Joya's ambiance and furnishings. We had just had a cancellation so I 'm glad you did find us:-). It's interesting and maybe good to note that 'the season' is no longer just...More

Joya was a great choice for a BnB in Nelson. We stayed in a garden suite which was more than a BnB it was fully self contained cottage. The suite and the gardens of Joya were lovely. Paulina is a gracious host and her breakfast...More

Thank you for this gesture. Glad you did like your stay and Joya's location. Good to know that even when it's getting colder you'll be warm and cosy in the cottage. It has underfloor heating and there is a nice Danish woodstove there. I wouldn't...More

We loved our one night stay in Paulina's lovely home. Set in an elevated position with views over Nelson, staying at Joya was great. The home has lots of lovely timber. We had a queen/king bed which was very comfortable and the linen was great...More

Thank you Judy, for your appreciation. If I may I'd like to mention that where you stayed, in the B&B part of the house on the top floor, that the rooms don't have an ensuite. For you that didn't seem to be of great importance...More
