This was a first our time staying at a b&b. My hubby and I enjoyed our stay very much, really liked the setting of the calm backyard and white linen as bedding. We got to meet the hosts at breakfast..breakfast was yummy even better than some cafes to be honest. My smoothie was refreshing too! Thanks you Wayne and Lizette...

We spent a lovely few days at Pipi Dune. Our hosts were considerate we felt totally welcome. Breakfast was beautifully prepared and served in the shared lounge/dining room at the times we requested each morning, and this was a great opportunity to chat and gain local knowledge of Whitianga and the area.

Wayne and Lizette treated us wonderfully. Rooms are meticulously clean, very comfortable, and the place smells great. The common area has everything you need down to a bottle of Eno. They cook breakie for you and it's a large portion. Go for the eggs and mushrooms. Thanks you two for a beautiful time!

We loved Pipi Dune B & B which is set in a quiet part of Whitianga just back from the beach but close to the town. The spotlessly clean rooms are very well appointed and have the most comfy beds with top quality bedding.
