Note: Joya is not a Hotel. Joya is at a private residence and has a room, a studio, and a separate cottage for guests. Located at the top of a small hill in an upscale neighborhood and overlooking the town of Nelson, Joya feels like a cocoon of comfort and relaxation. Immediately after arriving, we wished to cancel our other plans and stay here to soak it up and relax. We stayed in the villa studio - which felt more roomy than our entire home! Expansive, lots of windows letting in natural light, a patio with sofa and chairs, a kitchen, beautiful garden - we were not left wanting at all. Paulina, the hostess, is very kind, interesting, and helpful and gauges perfectly the right level of attention to give the guest without ever intruding. The 1.2 km walk to the Trafalgar St core of town is a pleasant way to get a feel for the town.. We'd stay here again without hesitation and recommend it.
