              Great B&B in Whitianga”

              Super comfy bed, wonderful home cooked breakfast, very friendly hosts

              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 attractions. Relative to other places we stayed, this was good value for money. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend in the Coromandel area.

              Great place to stay”

              Great host, great breakfast, great facilities

              Pipi Dune B&B is a very nice place to stay. Wayne was extremely friendly and helpful and makes a delicious breakfast (especially the apricots). The facilities are good and the rooms comfortable with lots of little touches to make your stay special. Only 2 things which may be an issue for some - the rooms are on the small side with not much space for large luggage, and the B&B while very close to the beach is about 20 minutes walk from the centre of town and all of the restaurants. (However we enjoyed the stroll along the beach to get there). Overall highly recommend.

              Great little B&B located about 1km from Whitianga centre and 150m from beach. Everything is spotlessly clean and the well setup. The room has a nice en-suite bathroom and built in wardrobe. There is a communal area for B&B guests with lounge with skyTV and small book swap library, dining area and kitchenette. Tea, coffee, biscuits, bread, milk, juice etc are all provided for you to help yourself and you can use the fridge for your own cool items. Breakfast is excellent with a choice of cooked or continental options and is certainly a hearty start to the day. The host are very friendly and accommodating and able to recommend local places to see, do and eat. There is off street parking.

              Best B&B”

              Staff friendliness, Cozy, Tasty Breakfast

              We arrived late at Pipi Dunes due to the weather, but the staff was still waiting for us until 9pm. We went there in non peak season, so we were the only couple who stayed there, the owner's family stayed on the first floor, so we had the whole floor to ourselves. They said what you get is what you pay, we felt we got more than what we paid, it definitely worth more than just $108.

              An awesome find. Of our 10-night tour this beat the hotels easily.”

              Clean, modern, quiet, very friendly hosts, attracts relaxed & friendly guests. Minutes from the beach, short taxi/scooter to town (close enough to hop in each night but far enough to get away from the noise) not for wild kids but good for couples & us with little ones. Wayne & Lizette gave us pointers for good beaches/cafes off the beaten track. Attentive but not too much, they do credit to the category; we didn’t want a B&B but we’ll look at them again unless we’re in Whitianga in which case we’ll stay here again. Sorry to gush but a great find.

              Wayne and Lizette were so hospitable. The room was clean and well situated, lovely breakfast with different options and more than you could possibly fit in. The free wifi was fast and easily accessible. Comfortable bed and parking available. Good hot shower with lots of pressure. The surrounding town was centrally located in the Coromandel Peninsilar and so picturesque with many great restaurant choices. I would definitely recommend Pipi Dune B&B!

              This B&B lies outside the centre of the town in a residential street some 150m from the beach. The room was very well presented and spotless with a very comfortable bed. Wayne and his wife made us extremely welcome and the dining room/lounge/kitchen was available for us to use at any time. The breakfast cooked by Wayne was excellent and plentiful and there was fresh fruit as well as usual cereals, yoghurt, juices etc. Wayne and his wife were lovely people to sit and talk to and they clearly love being hosts after originally working in Auckland. We would not hesitate in booked here again if we return to NZ.

The common room with its facilities was very much appreciated as was the friendly atmosphere. A very short walk to the beach and a slightly longer walk to the town and restaurants make this an excellent choice.
