Words can not explain what a delight this find was. After trawling around Nelson looking for somewhere suitable to welcome my partner to New Zealand with, Joya exceeded every ideal I could have.
Natural wood filled GORGEOUS apartment, fully furnished and with absolutely everything we could need. Large open plan, sunlight filled living space, a bed big enough for 4 of us, and all the smallest touches added to make our stay amazingly comfortable. Set in a beautiful garden - with water feature, abundant flora and fauna and wildlife and sun patio with views of the garden and surrounding views to laze on.
The eco friendly elements of the place were second to none in Nelson (believe me i checked!), with septic tank water system, recycling bins, natural wood finishes, organic, homemade and local food where possible and could easily cater for my vegetarian, dairy free, gluten free diet that I choose to keep my body feeling good :)
Paulina was amazing, on hand to our every request and went completely out of her way to make our stay memorable and my partners arrival super special, even allowing us a late breakfast on our first morning! As well as providing us with thoroughly wonderful hospitality throughout our whole stay - we ended up staying longer as we didnt want to drag ourselves away from the bliss!
A short walk from town and out far enough to be quiet and away from the hustle and bustle. With activities for us to do being discussed over our delicious breakfast spreads - we couldnt have asked for more!
Absolutely hands down one of the most beautiful and welcoming places I have ever stayed (and I have travelled for nearly 10 years)
Comes with a MASSIVE recommendation!
Go and enjoy the serene, abundant wonderfulness :)
