Guest Comments

'We recently stayed in Poplars 2 for 3 nights and didn't want to leave!
This place is absolutely stunning. Everything from the peaceful location & phenomenal views across the Tuki Tuki Valley to the property itself with modern contemporary furnishings; this place is truly unreal. 
Admittedly, we can be quite picky about properties that we stay in, however at Poplars 2, we could not fault a single thing! There is nothing that the owners & Black Barn have not thought of throughout the house.'
