There are 3 room available. Our room was very large with 3 beds and an excellent new bathroom. The aircon was very old-fashioned, but we didn't need it. Nice area for sitting outside. Lizette & Wayne were very friendly and helpful. Best breakfast ever.

Visual Delight

We chose the Pipi Dune because of the photo of the house. We were delighted to also love the layout of the home ,the warmth of our hosts' welcome and the beautifully cooked breakfast. It was the best B & B that we have stayed in.

Whitianga welcome

Pros: A little bit of character, but still very comfortable for our one night stay
We had a warm welcome, and were made to feel very much at home as soon as we had arrived.
