Meet Annie and Jay

Etiam scelerisque nunc eu sagittis rhoncus. Mauris eget ullamcorper tortor.

Sheryl and Mike have lived in the Waihi beach area for around 30 years and spent the last 11 years owning and operating the Athenree Hot Springs and Holiday Park.
Mike is a Mining Engineer and has spent 25 years mining for gold and silver, mainly in the 2 underground mines in Waihi. Sheryl worked in Human Resources prior to raising their 2 boys and taking on the challenges of the Holiday Park.
They both fell for Poets Corner Lodge on their first visit, realising the potential for an outstanding visitor experience with their hospitality skills combined with a superb Lodge in an awesome location.
Having recently taken over the property, they plan to open the Lodge for guests from mid 2020 and look forward to making your next break away your best yet.
“Both of us, and our friendly team, look forward to welcoming you to our Lodge for your next retreat in luxury with all the special touches you’d expect.”


'My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of a month long trip round New Zealand and Poets Corner set a standard here that was not bettered elsewhere - excellent though the other lodges were. Comfortable and luxurious accommodation. Definitely our favourite place to stay."
Satisfied Guest
We came here with our UK family for a long weekend. Great place, great location, well equipped, cosy but modern. We loved the peace and serenity that this place has to offer and with close distance to Waihi and Waihi beach restaurants and sights, you really feel treated.
