“Perfect Poppy's”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Our stay at Poppy's B&B was amazing. From the views out towards Lake Wanaka and over to Treble Cone, to the awesome hosts and amazing breakfasts, our stay couldn't have been better. Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wanting a relaxing time in Wanaka with knowledgeable and friendly hosts. Can't wait to go back!

Poppy's B&B is the perfect location, situated high on a hill with breathtaking views of Lake Wanaka and the mountains, only a short drive from the lakefront, restaurants and cafes.

The accommodation is a fully self contained two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, living area and outdoor area and a private entrance which offers a balance of independence and privacy while enjoying the hosts' hospitality.

Scrumptious breakfasts are provided from a choice of menu, delicious home made muesli, yoghurt and fruits or a gourmet cooked breakfast. They will cater to dietary requirements with advance notice

Stephen and Trish, who both also work as tour guides, are very knowledgeable of the wider area and can offer recommendations and information for any local sights and activities. They are the perfect hosts, friendly and welcoming and passionate about their business.

My wife and I are transplanted Americans now living in Auckland, New Zealand. My father-in-law came to visit us in NZ and we had about 5 days to show him around the mountains of the South Island. We spent one night at Poppy's B&B in March 2012, but we wish it could have been more!

The B&B is situated on a hill with amazing views overlooking the lake and mountains. What a perfect location - stunning vistas yet just a short drive from the Wanaka lakefront and its restaurants and cafes.

We are regular B&B guests and have stayed at many throughout New Zealand. Without a doubt Poppy's ranks as one of the best we've been to. Stephen and Trish are the perfect hosts - friendly, welcoming, and full of information to share. And the rooms are a perfect combination of privacy and feeling like guests in their home. You have your own private entrance yet stairs lead down from the suite to the breakfast area in their home in the morning.

The two bedroom setup was perfect for the three of us so my wife's dad could have his own room yet we could all share the living space and the great view. But it would also be great for just two people. There is a full kitchen plus a large living area and deck which both have stunning views.

The breakfast was superb with lots of fresh local fruit and a wide array of food to choose from including a cooked option. They were great in accommodating my wife's gluten allergy - we had let them know about it before arriving and they had great options for her.

We highly recommend Poppy's - the warm & inviting hosts, the great rooms, the yummy breakfasts, and the stunning location make it the perfect base for exploring beautiful Wanaka and the surrounding area!

We travelled from the US for a two week trip to the South Island of NZ and stayed at some really nice places, but Poppy's was just stunning. It is not an exaggeration that this has the best views in Wanaka - the lake, the mountains - all from a high vantage point. The accommodations were great - private entrance, our own kitchen, and deck; very nicely laid out. It is a two bedroom unit so it can accommodate a couple, a family or two couples travelling together. Every morning we looked forward to breakfast in the main part of the house - also with stunning views. There was so much food - home made Muesli, fruit, toast, and something cooked (YUM!) - that we felt full for hours. And Stephen Popperwell was a great and interesting host who we enjoyed interacting with. He does tour guides as well and so he gave us some great tips for local sights (and beyond too). We didn't get to meet his wife Trish, who was away when we were there. This is just a terrific place to stay if you are in Wanaka.

My wife and our 10 yr. old twins had a wonderful stay at Poppy's B&B in January.
The two bedroom apartment with kitchen, living room and private entrance was perfect.
The large deck and outdoor seating area has the best views of Wanaka valley. Our breakfasts were both beautiful and delicious. Trish and Steve are excellent hosts and helped us coordinate activities and select restaurants appropriate for every occasion and craving.
We highly recommend Poppy's and will stay there again when we return to Wanaka.

My husband and I and our two young children (5 and 3) stayed at Poppy's bed & breakfast for 2 nights just after Christmas 2011. We were delighted with the self contained apartment in Stephen and Trish's house. There was plenty of space for the four of us and we were very impressed that our hosts had provided some children's books and toys to play with - our children were very happy. The house has the most amazing views over Wanaka and our hosts were also very knowledgable pointing out a great walk, the children's playground and some other child friendly attractions in Wanaka.
The breakfast was excellent - delicious home made muesli, yoghurt and fruits and a fantastic cooked breakfast. Stephen and Trish made our children bacon sandwiches just how they like them keeping us all happy and it was lovely to chat with them over breakfast to find out more about the local area and New Zealand as a whole.
We would definitely stay again if we were in the area and happily recommend it to other families.

No advertising can come close to the magic of staying at Poppys B&B. The accommodation was luxurious, beautiful and superbly appointed, with great attention to detail providing everything you could want from Egyptian cotton sheets to good quality kitchenware. The views are without doubt breathtaking, but what really made it for us were our hosts Stephen and Trish. They gave us the perfect combination of privacy and convivial welcome. We cannot recommend this place highly enough!
