Wanaka is a perfect base for seeing the beauty of the Southern Alps and Central Otago and Poppy's is a perfect location with glorious lake and mountain views.
The B&B (or self contained if you wish) is beautifully and tastefully presented and the hosts are delightful. Very knowledgeable about the local area, friendly and willing to chat if you wish and the breakfasts are to die for!
Access to the B&B is up a steep hill and might deter some but it really isn't difficult and absolutely worth it. With the town 3/4 minutes away you get the best of convenience and peace and serenity without any bustle.
My wife and I have returned here a number of times and are still as enthusiastic now as after our first stay.
