Your Hosts

Meet Sheryl and Mike Horne

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 Orokawa Bay Villas 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 Villas 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 Villas for your next retreat in luxury with all the special touches you’d expect.”
