We were welcomed with tea, french press coffee, biscuits, and smiles...all the comforts of home! Breakfasts were delicious, cooked by Joan in her kitchen upstairs and delivered by Vern to the guest area downstairs via a fun little lift/elevator. (There was also a kitchen downstairs for guest use.) I loved the sliding glass doors and veranda just outside our room,...

The owners are very friendly, welcoming and talkative. The house is beautiful - downstairs for the guest, upstairs for the owners. The choice of cooked breakfast is great. The place is very clean and comfortable, the rooms not too big and there is a shared kitchen. Overall, a very good choice.

Pipi Dune is a very clean comfortable B&B. The owners, Vern and Joan, could not be more welcoming and helpful. I would recommend a stay here if you are in the area. Good restaurants are a short walk away. Joan's breakfast is tasty and generous.

Your hosts will look after you perfectly. Rooms are adequate size and tastefully decorated. Guest lounge/dining area is comfortable with TV and red leather sofas. Breakfasts are magnificent and include a cooked option as well as cereals, yoghurts, toast etc. Beach towels and beach umbrella are also available.

Why do people choose a B&B over a hotel? Because of the personal treatment and the opportunity to meet other people, both locals and fellow travellers. All of this we found in abundance in Pipi Dune B&B. Joan and Vern are warm, congenial hosts; always genuinly interested in other people's experiences. I will not forget our wide-ranging discussions over breakfast....
