Reviewed 5 December 2016

We really enjoyed our three night stay in the garden studio. The location was good for us, far enough out of town to be quiet but only a 10-15 minute walk to the restaurants.
Our host was very helpful and we loved the quiet and the deck overlooking the pond.

Room Tip: Go for the garden suite

Kia Ora,
Glad that you did like the ambience of Joya. Having these gardens, ponds and water features is rare in a city environment. We are indeed lucky that way. And having Nelson's best restaurants nearby is certainly a bonus too. It was great meeting you. Thanks again, and enjoy the remainder of your journey here and abroad. Paulina

We visited as a family with four adults and two small children. Prior to our visit the host, Pailina, was exceedingly helpful to accommodate the little ones and had arranged everything beautifully when we arrived. The breakfast was unique and wonderful and she was so helpful, giving us local information and answering my queries via email dialogue immediately. The gardens are serene and the pond has many birds visiting. We look forward to returning

Thank you for this kind review. I do enjoy having kids around and am glad that the two studios could easily accommodate all of you. Hope all will go well with the moving into the new house and perhaps we'll meet again. It is indeed nice to have people coming back and see the children grow up and still enjoy the books, games etc that are present.
Thanks again! Paulina

Thank you Ida for this surprise review:-)
Much appreciated. With regards to the kitchen facilities I want to mention that guests shouldn't expect anything but for all the basic kitchen tools. Especially in the villa studio where you stayed, space is relatively limited. You can certainly prepare meals, and use our gardens to pick some of your herbs and salads, but it certainly isn't the sort of kitchen you would have at home. Enjoy the remainder of your holidays and a safe journey home to Sweden. Paulina

My girlfriend and I stayed here in mid September 2016. The hostess is super friendly and the house is absolutely lovely on the side of the hill. Good location - easy walk to city and plenty of nice pubs/restaurants. The villa's breakfast was amazing - highly recommend.

Glad you had a good time here. It is indeed a great bonus that we are so close to the CBD and the parks, galleries, eateries. Hope to see you return some day! Aroha, Paulina
