“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

Maya provided us with more service and care than we could have imagined during our stay in Nelson. Her home was our home, and she took care to meet our vegan dietary needs with a wonderful and inviting range of food to suit us. She even did our laundry!

What a super place Casa del soul is, bright and comfortable with everything we needed for a weekend skiing trip. Maya is an excellent host who goes out of her way to ensure you have an excellent time. The basement suite has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and lounge, where you can really relax after a day skiing or checking out all Nelson has to offer.
The breakfasts are unlike anywhere I've ever stayed! and I'm sure Maya would make anything you wanted, while we were spoiled with fresh fruit and homemade waffles, pancakes and muffins (theres always gluten free options too).
Casa del Soul and Maya really encompass what Nelson as a city is about, friendly and open with an energy that would be hard not to embrace.
If you really want to experience Nelson, i would absolutely recommend staying here.

After spending three nights in Casa del Soul I can confidently say that I will be sure to return to this B&B. Maya's welcoming sense of accommodation is obvious right from the very start, creating cozy at home sense that inspires comfort and ease. Beginning with an open menu breakfast that leaves you more than satisfied, you will also enjoy wonderful art and collectables all throughout a colourful, well lit house. The sleeping quarters provide both a queen and a double bed in private bedrooms, sharing a fresh clean bathroom sporting cedar walls, warm tile flooring, and a Jacuzzi bathtub, Along with these is a lounge well stocked with plenty of movies and board games. These rooms are accessible via a private entrance alongside the house. The location is fairly central being less than a fifteen minute walk from downtown. If you are looking to have a genuine Nelson experience hosted by a wonderful lady I would suggest trying Casa del Soul.

I stayed four nights at Casa del Soul run by Maya Heringa and loved every minute of it. Brightly coloured and surrounded by trees, gardens and outdoor sculptures and decorations, Casa del Soul is on a hillside above Kootenay Lake and from the house, the tip of Kokanee Glacier shines above the Purcell Mountains. The B&B accommodations are excellent with very comfortable beds, a well appointed bathroom with jet tub, a common room with TV, books and art in every room and meals are served upstairs. There's a separate entrance downstairs for guests. Maya loves to cook, and the food reflects her skill as well as accommodating to your personal needs which she attends to. Casa del Soul is a reflection of Maya's eclectic artistic nature, love of colour and collections of items from her rich life, and her love of people. If you're inclined to be adventurous, you can join her Friday drop in art studio sessions. Whether you want a retreat space or a place to explore Nelson and surrounding communities, Casa del Soul is worth checking out.

Room Tip: Both rooms are downstairs. One with a queen size, one double.

This B and B is very comfortable, with fairly compact bedrooms, nice shared bathroom, and very comfortable shared lounge area. Maya is an excellent host, and provides a wonderful breakfast with amny choices available. If you are into art then you will love this place, too, as you will be surrounded by artist Maya's work. It is about 12 minutes walk to downtown Nelson, which is an added bonus. Recommended!
