Our family spent two nights in the Villa Studio which has such a warm and welcoming feel. The property is a tranquil setting located in a quiet street. It was like staying with a friend rather than in the formal atmosphere of a traditional hotel or motel. Paulina was a wonderful host cooking us a beautiful breakfast, pointing out local... More

A friend recommended Joya Garden and I'm glad we discovered this enjoyable place. From the first moment we felt very welcomed from Paulina it was like meeting a friend. We stayed in the eco friendly Garden Studio and enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere. Paulina prepared an outstanding breakfast for us the next morning, nutritious and delicious, just really lovely! For us... More

The garden is wonderful. The room is clean and well equipped. We can enjoy ourselves by cooking and reading under the sky full of stars. It is near from the center city but quiet. The owner is kind and very friendly.

What a beautiful place to stay. While my colleagues stayed in supposed 'upmarket' hotel rooms I had a whole studio to myself with heated floor, beautiful surroundings and a wonderful host. Paulina put on a spread for breakfast for breakfast which was almost embarrassing for all the choices! I certainly had the best accomodation out of the 250 or so... More

Very clean & comfortable environment, just like living in nature but not in a town! Sitting or lying on the hanging chair, listening to the sound of stream water, it will take away your tiredness & revitalise your body. Healthy & yummy food prepared by the owner, Paulina. She is very knowledgeable & friendly. Just 10 minutes by walk or... More

We arrived here straight from London and couldn't have asked for a better retreat in Nelson to recover from jet lag and start our trip. We had unseasonably bad weather and so we loved the log fire and having a 'home' to go to to get out of the rain or just to sleep off the time difference. The studio... More

Excellent place to stay. Organic and healthy, wholesome home cooked breakfasts get you going for the day. Home atmosphere and service. Quiet location. Close to town, walkable if you like. Book early as rooms are limited.

The location of the house was gorgeous and I was pleased with my choice as I could walk around the streets admiring the beautiful houses. When I met my host Paulina I felt instantly welcomed with a cup of tea and a chat. I booked the single room in the house and that was fine and good value for money.... More
