Pipi Dune B&B
Ranked #4 of 43 Whitianga B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 2, 2009

It's the extra little things and attention to detail that sets Pipi Dune apart from most other B & B's we have experienced.
Fine quality linen, towels and soap, a superb breakfast and immaculate accommodation, not to mention the thoughtful and good natured hosts Vern & Joan.
When we are staying in New Zealand again, we would certainly be staying at Pipi Dune again.

We have two children aged 6 and 8. Pipi Dune was very handy as the children could have their own room but it was directly opposite ours if they woke up in the night. The location is central but quiet. It's very clean and Vern and Joan are lovely. They even mailed us our son's favourite book that he had left behind without us even asking!

If you're looking for modern, clean accomodation that's close to town and only a short walk from the beach, you need to check this place out. Beautifully equipped guest lounge and kitchen area and lots of variety in the breakfast department. (We chose to get our own.) Joan and Vern have certainly put a lot of thought and effort into making guests feel welcome and comfortable.

Vern and Joan were the perfect hosts, if you have any interest in flying Vern will have you on the flight sim in minutes, I have and he did! You really are treated like family, and we will certainly stay in touch. The breakfast is excellent with no restriction on quantity or quality, and with plenty of choice. If you are going to hot water beach they will even supply the spade, a full size one , not those didy things they hire out at the beach, so you can dig your hole twice as fast! A visit to the beach turns into a very social occasion, as does staying at pipidune, highly recommended.

Comfy room with private bathroom facilities, fabulous shared lounge/ kitchen , big TV and sunny outdoor seating for al fresco breakfast or dinner. We will surely visit again. Superb.
