  • Poppy Kamers is clean & cosy; great location for touring the city.
    The host (Art) is a nice guy, and very welcoming. I didn't get to see him often though, as I was often out and about.
    Overall, I had a nice stay at Poppy Kamers.

  • Art was very helpful upon arrival - he really welcomes you into his place and treats you like a family member. The room was sufficient for a place to crash were adventuring the island. Overall, a pleasant experience and will stay at Art's again on future visits.

  • De verhuurder is allervriendelijkst en gastvrij. Maar als vrouw alleen (en ik ben toch op veel plaatsen geweest) is dit geen buurt die ik zou aan bevelen. Ik heb me niet veilig genoeg gevoelt om te blijven.
    Wat je ziet op de foto's klopt ook echt, een ietwat sobere kamer, maar voor dat geld kan je meer ook niet verwachten. keuken meer dan uitgebreid en de badkamers ruim en mooi.

  • Poppy Kamers is a very nice place to stay and Art is a great host. It is located downtown in the Otrobanda part of Willemstadt. This is the cheaper and more local part of town.
    The room is basic but sufficient. Kitchen, bathrooms and living rooms are well fitted with appliances. WiFi is real fast ((website hidden) video possible) and covers most of the flat.
    Bus stop for the beaches around the corner. downtown Otrobanda 5 min, Punda 10 min by foot. So a very central location.
    Art is a very attentative host caring for all the guests. Though he doesn't live onside, he checks the house on a daily basis. He takes much time to show the place and tell the rules, gives lots of advice and information about the island and can always be reached by mobile phone in case of emergency.
    Art speaks dutch, english, german, spanish and papiamiento (local language of Curacao) fluently. So I will definetly coming back to this place and can highly recommend it.

  • Een eenvoudig doch doelmatig en gezellig onderkomen in het centrum van de wijk Otrobanda van Willemstad. Gemakkelijk te bereiken met de auto, gratis parkeren vlakbij. Goede prijs/kwaliteit verhouding. Art is een goede gastheer die punctueel is en klaar staat i.g.v.v. storingen. Je moet wel een vaste slaper zijn, geluidsoverlast van buiten ligt op de loer.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Poppy's. It's a nice house to stay. Art was nice and very helpful during my stay and also before. He answered a my questions. I meet nice people at Poppy's.
    if you rent a car, which I recommend to see the hole island, there a parking slots directly at the house. They are free.
    Close to the house is a supermarket and some restaurants. And it's easy to walk to the city.
    I like Curaçao and Poppy's so hopefully I'll come back soon. :-)

  • Lo que más puedo destacar de la estancia es que me sentí como si estuviera en mi propia casa. Las habitaciones son lo suficientemente amplias y cómodas, cuenta con una cocina grande y un salón para poder relajarte viendo películas Dvd. Las camas además cuentan con mosquiteras para evitar los molestos mosquitos. Art, el anfitrión, es una excelente persona que se encuentra siempre disponible para cualquier duda o ayuda necesarias. Lo recomiendo por su excelente relación calidad precio y por su cercanía al centro histórico de la ciudad.

About
Widely traveled, cosmopolitan, liberal and inquisitive are a few words that describe me. I enjoy meeting new friends and imparting my experiences as well as listening to those of others. Local history and architecture fascinate me and if you come to this island they are both to be found in abundance. I enjoy making music (on my had made cajon), film, reading and technology and am always up for adventures (usually on a shoe-string). I hope to welcome many interesting and respectful guests in my Otrobanda house. My goal is to make their stay as interesting and informed as possible. Bon-Bini na Korsou!
