After 4 flights and over 40 hours of travel (including lost luggage) we arrived at Joya Garden happy but quite exhausted. Our stay in the Garden Studio could not have been more relaxing and enjoyable. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, a pond and a soothing stream, the cottage was exactly what we needed. Paulina's guidance led us to an excellent restaurant... More

My wife and I were in Nelson on our way to Abel Tasman over the Christmas Holiday and spent one evening at Joya Studios. The room was really nice, comfortable and surrounded by a beautiful garden. The B&B was located a short walk from the center of Nelson, and we got great advice about where to go for dinner and... More

Paulina warmly welcomed us to her lovely home in Nelson. She is such a lovely person and has worked hard to present this lovely accommodation for guests to enjoy, and the breakfast which she prepares is the best you will get, mostly home-made and lots of it! Nothing is left out! We were only here for an overnight stay. The... More

Paulina has created a tranquil oasis in the pretty town of Nelson. We had a lovely clean and quiet self contained unit fronted by a gorgeous pond with fish. We paid the extra ($12.50 per person) for a delicious and nutrious organic brekky, home-made bread, hummus, and yoghirt and a variety of fruits. A wonderful place to wind down.

We were warmly welcomed by Paulina at our arrival. She placed toys and books in the room for our children 4&1 year olds. The villa studio was very nice, worked for us well for our short 2 night stay. For a longer stay I would defenately book the separate house in the garden. Paulina was very accomodating and helpful. She... More

When I booked a room at Joya Garden and Villa Studios, I blindly trusted the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Upon arriving at Joya, I immediately knew my wife and I had made a wise decision. The room was immaculate and the host (Paulina) was very sweet. Be sure to ask for the breakfast ... you won't be disappointed. My... More

My wife and I (from San Francisco) were celebrating our 40th anniversary and traveled for over 2 weeks staying at numerous B & B ' s on the south and north islands. We stayed 3 nights and it was by far the best, most restful, most beautiful accommodation we had during our entire trip. Paulina was most gracious host and... More
