Charming hosts with ample local knowledge to share, good location in walking distance of Whitianga, spotless accommodation with flexibility and access to kitchen/washing facilities - perfect! Buckets and spades lent for Hot Water Beach, and a very comfortable bed, great night's sleep. A special thank you deserved as we left clothing in the wardrobe and this was very kindly forwarded...

Very welcoming hosts. Our room was clean and well maintained. A very good breakfast was provided. Verne was very helpful: giving useful information and lending us towels, bucket and spade for our trip to the Hot Water Beach.

We had a fantastic stay at Pipi Dune - Joan and Vern were excellent hosts. The bed was super comfy and the room was well appointed, well decorated, and super clean. Kitchen facilities were excellent and Joan made us wonderful breakfasts. Our hosts went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, with restaurant recommendations and advice on local... More

From start to finish Verne and Joan were so cheery and informative. They have a wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area to help us maximise our time up in the Coromandel and even loaned us a shovel and bath towels for going to hot water beach. Room was clean and comfortable with nice communal kitchen area which meant we... More

Booked a stay for two here through Booking.com after reading good ratings. I'm glad to say these were correct i.e. this is a good B&B. The owners were very helpful and friendly. They even moved their car out of the garage so we could store our kayaks. Thanks. :) Lovely to meet you both. The premises were new looking and... More

From beginning to end our stay was fantastic. Vern and Joan welcomed us as soon as we arrived, and they were both full of fascinating information about the area (including the time of low tide at Hot Water Beach. The room was immaculately clean and incredibly comfortable with a great shower (which is vital). The facilities were perfect with use... More

This B&B is located on a quiet street in a regular neighborhood. It's a few blocks from the beach and a lengthy walk to town. The hosts are great and the cooked to order breakfast was very good. That said, our room was very small, the walls are very thin, and the only TV is in the communal kitchen/sitting area.... More

Alright, so I am writing this review not even one night into it. A little back story, my friend and I have been staying in hostels, and found this property by accident when all other accommodations near hot water beach were sold out or too expensive. First, we arrive and Vern (owner/point of contact) has all these maps and recommendations... More

We stayed at Pipi Dune B&B with another couple who were travelling with us. We chose the two rooms with ensuites and used the third bedroom for our extras. The hosts, Vern and Joan were very welcoming and provided everything one could possibly need, the lounge/kitchen is well stocked and very comfortable. Breakfast to order for the morning was served...

This was our most enjoyable bed and breakfast stay on our trip in New Zealand. The room, while a little on the small side, had a private bath and entrance and was in new condition. Breakfast to order was ready for us each morning at the time of our choosing. It was delicious and there was cookies and tea available... More
