CENTRAL WILLEMSTAD, 10 minute walk to anywhere in town!
Constructed in 1904, this home has been restored externally to it's former glory and renovated internally to accommodate up to 6 guests. In typical Dutch colonial style Poppy Kamers Curacao boasts; high ceilings, wooden shuttered windows and doors as well as tiled roofs and floors.
There are 4 single rooms and one double room as well as a communal kitchen/dining-area and lounge. There are 2 large modern bathrooms, fully tiled with a double wash table and 220/110V outlets. Outside boasts a small, originally tiled, front porch and a partially covered back porch out back.
The neighborhood is at least 200 years old, with many houses on the street still built in the classical style. One end of the street has a beautifully maintained church and the street is frequently used for funeral and wedding processions. The street is also on the traditional Carnaval route (end Feb. every year). Just round the corner is the Bredestraat, the most picturesque and vibrant local shopping street in Curacao.
Nearby facilities and attractions (within 5-10 min. walk from Poppy) include: 2 banks with ATM, a supermarket with shopping center, bus stops, countless bars and restaurants, a free beach with great snorkeling!, the pontoon bridge and the old town of Punda to name but a few.
We aim to provide visitors to Curacao with a comfortable, convenient and price conscious stay in a centrally located and authentic setting. Please feel free to contact us with any and all questions. We look forward to seeing you in the Poppy House!
A great place to stay! Very central and close to the bus to Knip and other beaches. There were a bunch of other "solo travelers" in the house, so there's always someone around. Art is a wonderful and friendly host, that makes you feel truly welcome. I can highly recommend this place!
I had a wonderful time in Curacao, largely due to Art, who runs Poppy Kamers, and his wonderful suggestions. Poppy Kamers is centrally located to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and the general downtown area. Art is thorough, responsive, and gave wonderful suggestions (he truly knows the island well!). The place is a real steal too!
I had a great time staying at Poppy Kamers. Location is perfect - I especially enjoyed the nearby (just few hundred meters) bus stop where I could catch the bus 3C to Lagun and Knip. My favourite, Playa Lagun was located right next to the bus stop. To both Kenepa beaches you had to walk approximately 15 and 30 minutes from the stop at Knip. And the bus only cost 2,20 guilder!
I liked that in the house I had a private room (in total there are four rooms for one and one for two), there were two bathrooms and a big kitchen and livingroom.
Art was an excellent host and I also loved the house cat! All in all I had a great relaxing vacation in Curacao :)
Art is super relaxed, heel aardig en gastvrij! Ik was mijn sleutels verloren, dat was geen probleem, hij bracht mij zelfs nieuwe sleutels op de plek waar ik was, om maar een voorbeeld te geven :)
Poppy Kamers is a great place, perfectly located just a short walk from Queen Emma bridge and seconds from a supermarket. This is probably the closest you can get to a hostel in Curaçao minus the dorms. Art makes sure to call or come by the house regularly and is very accommodating and helpful. He's a great host and can give you plenty of info about Curaçao. An overall excellent experience at an excellent price.
The rooms are perfect, everything you can think of is available and in perfect condition. The location is also really good, with the center of Willemstad easily being within walking distance. Art is a great host, helpful and will get you started with anything you want to know. Perfect experience!
I stayed at Poppy`s for 10 days and I really enjoyed it. Great location within walking distance to all town attractions and necessary facilities such as supermarket, shops or busstation,but off the touristic center in an authentic neighborhood. The street is very quiet and there is always plenty of free parking spaces available, which is very conveniant because to really explore the island and to enjoy the beaches you should rent a car.
Art is a great host, he usually passes by once a day and you can always reach him if there is any problem or anything you need help for. Especially when travelling alone I highly recommend this place, you will find some nice company and have a lot of fun.
Viajamos con mi hermana a Curacao y nos alojamos en Poppy, fue una excelente decisión! Como queda cerca del centro, teníamos la posibilidad de salir a pie y recorrer Otrobanda y Punda. Tener el supermercado cerca nos facilitó mucho, ya que viajamos con un bajo presupuesto. La casa está en muy buenas condiciones, limpia, amplia, al igual que las habitaciones (individuales). En cuanto a Art, es una excelente persona! Honesto, todo fue tal cual lo hablamos.
Nos dió recomendaciones acertadas y estuvo pendiente de nosotras.
Le estamos muy agradecidas por la estadía en Poppy Kamers!

This place is great if you really want to get to know Curacao and especially Willemstad. It's located a bit offside all the tourist places but still very central. Bay, busstation, supermarket and a nice (free) beach at walking distance and you will for sure meet nice people from all over the world there. It is not only a nice and clean guesthouse but also a bit of a hostel.
