I have stayed already several times at the Pipi Dune - its just an amazing B&B with lovely hosts, nice rooms, great location and yummy breakfast. Lizette & Wayne are looking great after their guests and assist with all queries you may have. I will be returning.

We stayed one night at the pipi Dune B&B and we very much enjoyed it. The place is lovely, really close from the seafront (2 mins by walk) and from some great local restaurants (15 minutes by walk). The room was very comfortable, and the breakfast amazing. Wayne & Lizette were very friendly and helpful. The only regret we had...

Had such a nice stay with Wayne and Lizette, they were so friendly and welcoming. The room was beautiful, such comfy beds, best sleep I've had since I arrived from Scotland and having the kitchen to make a snack was ideal. The only negative .... I couldn't stay longer!!

We have stayed in 5 star hotels on our travels in Australia and New Zealand and Pipi Dune exceeds the level of care and service we received, Superb in every way. Wonderful hosts, beautiful house, beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean and I got my porridge made the old fashion way on the hob! Thank you Lizette and Wayne �

We stayed two nights here. The place is well situated in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the beach, wharf, and restaurants. We had our bathroom, use of the laundry facilities, and the kitchen. You could order your breakfast the day before. Everything was great. I was able to make coffee in the kitchen early as is our habit....

We stayed at Pipi Dune for 3 of the 21 nights we were in New Zealand in February and my husband and I agree that, out of all the places we stayed, it was the best for value for money. The room, although a bit small, was lovely. The communal lounge/kitchen/dining area was a huge bonus. It was nice to...
