My wife and I were doing the north region as part of our honeymoon. Gary and Paula made their place an excellent spot to dwell and use as a hub for all activities in the area. Price is excellent and breakfast is superb (you'll barely need to have lunch). The place is very well equipped and they upgraded us to... More

Gary and Paula helped to make our dream holiday in New Zealand with a warm welcome, good company, a comfortable ensuite bedroom, our own relaxing conservatory, wonderful views of the bay and delicious breakfasts with fresh fruit and scrummy egg dishes. The house sits in a beautiful and interesting garden with an intriguing maze of pathways leading down to the... More

What a brilliant place. Lovely hosts and inspirational garden. Will return. The fabric artwork and patchwork are incredible. More inspiration!! Thanks for warm welcome. Make sure you fully explore the gardens as there are lots of beautiful nooks and crannies.

I had a ensuite room and a lounge attached to it, with a view on the sea. Superb views. Breakfast was taken on a balcony, with my hosts, facing the sea- having breakfast in front of the sea, in the sun, felt like a dream... Considering how wet it is back home! The breakfast was great, and Paula even cooked... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights and it was beautiful!! The view over the bay is absolutely stunning and we could not get enough of sitting out on the deck soaking it all in.... We spent as much time on this deck as we could and had 2 delicious BBQs here with fresh fish purchased just up... More

We stayed one night at the Pipiroa Bay Homestay and felt right at home immediately upon meeting Paula and Gary. We were advised of restaurant recommendations, things to do in the area and upon our departure all of our questions were answered about the next leg of our journey. We stayed in the main house in a bedroom off the... More

My husband and I stayed in the B & B at Pipiroa last year and we would agree with all the previous comments. Arriving in the afternoon we were greeted with tea and home-made cake on the terrace and really made to feel welcome. The garden down to the bay is amazing with lots of little pathways and interesting plants.... More

The apartment is situated on a lovely quiet bay. Gary's garden down to the beach is beautiful. There is a wonderful hike you can do into the Russell townsite that is about 7 k away. Great place to relax and enjoy the sea.

I stayed with my daughter and her friend for just one night. Paula and Gary are very interesting, stimulating and friendly hosts. We felt quite at home. The apartment is lovely and decorated with care; loved Paula's shell art pictures. Gary's garden is incredible and leads down through many paths to the bay below the house. We had a lovely... More
