We really enjoyed Nelson and found it a great base for a long day trip to Abel Tasman National Park. It seemed like a really liveable little town.
Joya was a really pleasant place to stay. Peaceful, beautiful private gardens and a wonderful view. A very friendly black cat came to say hello while I was relaxing on the outdoor sofa.
It was one of the more expensive places we stayed, however the studio (attached to the main house) was very spacious.
Paulina seems like a very warm and welcoming person, and on noticing that I was pregnant, provided me with some relevant printed materials and a CD relating to the 'listening' theories and practices she is involved with. A nice touch.
