      Outstanding B and B in Nelson ”

      We loved our five day stay in Nelson at the “Joya Garden” studio which was a very cozy private and romantic set-up with a wonderful wood burning fire place – a real “jewel”. We appreciated Paulina’s hospitality, advice and healthy gourmet breakfast which included a tasty unique herb omelet accompanied by a variety of homemade breads, jams, humus, dried fruits, muesli, and ginger tea. The view of downtown Nelson and harbor from the breakfast room as well as the waterfall pond and gardens set-up was indeed relaxing and soothing. Nelson is a great launch point for New Zealand and Paulina is the ideal host.

      Peace and tranquility in a garden setting”

      Beautiful, relaxing garden, self contained suite opening on to the garden, secluded area to sit in the garden

      We had a delightful stay at Joya Garden. Our self contained suite opened out onto the very peaceful garden with a little stream and water feature. We had a secluded outdoor area to sit in and relax and were quite private. The room had all that we needed and we cooked in the room one night. Our host Paulina was very kind and the organic breakfast we had one morning was absolutely delicious. The house is set in a leafy, quiet area of Nelson. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

      I can highly recommend Joya Garden cottage as being somewhere I could easily stay....forever!”

      I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Joya, both for Joya itself and for its location in what may well be the loveliest part of Nelson (and very accessible by foot from the center of town). Regarding Joya itself, the tranquil surroundings, the beautiful lily ponds set in a wonderfully exuberant garden, the totally self-sufficient cottage and a hostess who is clearly a warm-hearted and genuine human being - what more can I say?!

      Nelson hideaway in a wonderful location”

      What a great place to stay in Nelson. We found this pretty much by accident, when we wanted to stay in town overnight and the Nelson friend we usually stay with was away. We know the city pretty well but, hidden on a hillside within 10 minutes walk of the city centre, this was a lovely surprise with its quiet and beautiful pond-side situation, comfortable studio, delicious vegetarian breakfast and friendly host. I can't recommend it enough.

      the owner was very nice when i arrived and set me up - the room was nice and clean - and the internet was fast and without the usual password/10 min crap you get everywhere else in New Zealand! so that was a big plus. the organic breakfast was just delicious and great! location is good for a short walk into the main shopping and restaurant area of Nelson.

      Egalitarian hostess, multi choice healthy breakfasts and beautiful water gardens exuding tranquility

      My stay was totally problem free, and, due to the nature of the surroundings, the style of accommodation and the friendliness of the hostess and her family, could not have been improved in any way. I have no hesitation in recommending Joya Gardens to anyone looking for something different, somewhere to relax and somewhere to reconnect with the important aspects of one's inner being.
