Joya is located in a quiet, upmarket part of central Nelson, sunshine capital of New Zealand. The Garden Studio, an open-plan, grass-roofed log home, is situated in the private gardens of a heritage villa. The Villa Studio is a ground-floor studio apartment opening up to a sunny, secluded terrace.
The studios have their own kitchen facilities and are totally self-contained and private. An optional organic vegetarian breakfast (with vegan and gluten-free options) can be served in the villa, or on the main deck overlooking the herb and fruit gardens, and the city and coastline beyond.
All water on the property is filtered. Kitchen surfaces and wooden floors have been treated with organic oils. Fruits, greens and herbs from our gardens are organically grown and for shared use.
The Den is on the top floor of the recently renovated turn of the century villa. It is a good value single room which gets the early morning sun. The Villa Room has its own balcony, and great views over the city and beyond. Guests staying in the main house will have their breakfasts included.
Free cabled and wireless broadband internet access is available in each room. Award-winning restaurants, cafés and galleries are just a short stroll away. The bus depots are relatively close but a bus pick-up can often be arranged.
If you like something with quality, yet quirky, then make Joya your base for your adventures in and around Nelson.
