“Wayne was so accommodating and we were super comfortable at Pipi Dune. The yummy breakfast was appreciated. Well recommended and we hope to return.  The location is central and convenient to The Lost Spring. “

“Fantastic stay – wonderful hosts, comfortable room and bed and nothing was a hassle for the hosts. Would stay again and recommend to others. Close to beach and town.”



“Pipi Dune is an outstanding BnB. Wayne and Lizette are supremely gracious hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They supplied towels and robes for the local spar and buckets and spades for the Hot Water Beach. We had a delightful stay and would go back in a heart beat. Highly recommended”

“Owner was humble and welcoming. He made super delicious breakfast and even came to say good bye to us. Super nice gentleman. Property was nicely located and has everything you need for your stay. Definable will recommend.”



“The breakfast each morning was great and the hosts were really friendly. We didn’t really have a plan of what to see or do but Wayne and Lizette pointed out some great beaches to visit and an awesome boat ride to go on. Would stay here again.”



“Exceptional.  Clean, comfortable and spacious room. Wayne is a rockstar with his service and we loved every little bit of the stay. The breakfast options are delicious, prepared with love and care. We tried them all!
Wayne definitely had gone above and beyond to make our stay perfect. “



“We recently had the pleasure of staying at Pipi Dune B&B for 4 nights. Because of the length of stay we had the very comfortable deluxe room with our own private entrance and car park at the door. This room included a queen size bed and also a single bed and would suit a family, spotlessly clean and quality linen. Our host Wayne was very helpful in as much as what to do and where to go etc. He also cooked a very lovely breakfast. There was always tea, coffee, juice and fruit available to help yourself to at any time.”

“The owners are lovely – very welcoming from the time we arrived till when we were leaving. Breakfast in the mornings were on point & on time…Very peaceful & very relaxing… would definitely recommend it nice place for a family getaway as well..Enjoyed our 2 nights at this BnB would love to go back again.”



“We had extra days to fill as we couldn’t go to Australia due to the shut down. Well, what a last-minute find this was! So close for a dip in the sea, and real quality accommodation, yet still with a ‘home’ feeling. Host Wayne made us welcome and was really helpful with suggestions of what to do, and lent us towels and robes to take to the ‘Lost Spring’ which was worth a visit. Thank you!”

“This is one of the most welcoming and thoughtful B & Bs we’ve ever stayed in! Its well sited with easy access to the local restaurants, and a short drive from fabulous beaches. The rooms are very comfortable and the extra touches including a lounge area, fridge, laundry were very welcome. The breakfast was fabulous! Best of all was the friendliness and helpfulness of Lizette and Wayne who are charming people. We will definitely return.”

“Stayed for three nights. Our room was modern and spotlessly clean. It had its own side entrance and a sitting area outside. The hosts were very welcoming and provided a great breakfast. They also thoughfully provided a spade and bucket for Hot Water Beach and a beach umbrella. The room was on the small side but once organised it presented no problem. Would highly recommend”
