We took one of the three day packages which was tailored to us, including a guided tour of... More

We stayed at Poets Corner in March 2013 for two nights. The rooms were large, clean and well appointed and had very comfy beds. There was a lounge area for all guest to use which included a dining table (where breakfast is served) and a kitchen so you could cook your own evening meal if you wished. Tea and fresh... More

We stayed at PCL in Feb. 2013 and absolutely loved it. The property is gorgeous with a great view from the main area. John and Marg were so wonderful that it felt like visiting friends. Breakfast was superb. One of the days Marg packed a picnic lunch for us and we had enough food for two days. We hope to... More

We found this property clean, however it is important to note that there is little privacy. We did have a long drive *(probably a mistake to drive from the Bay of Islands) however after a late arrival with a near miss of a restaurant. Poets Corner is not close to restaurants if you are driving after dark. After now making... More

We stayed at PCL our first two nights in New Zealand, Feb 2013. Its located a short drive from the Auckland Airport. Kathy and I found it to be the perfect place to relax and unwind from our 13 hr. flight from Los Angeles. You experience spectacular views of the surrounding hill sides and the Orokawa Bay. The food was... More

We stayed here with another couple and we had a simply wonderful stay. Mag and John are very good hosts (they live in a seperate house about 75 yards away), they are very friendly and helpful without being too much in your face. We enjoyed some lovely early evening wine with them on the patio which has glorious views -... More

After a meandering drive from Auckland we arrived at Poets Corner. A little hard to find on the Sat Nav but worth the wait. Our hosts were superb, the location beautiful and the poached eggs and smoked salmon on home made bread, divine Marg and John, our hosts, went the extra mile to ensure that we had a good time

From the moment we arrived to the time we left Poets Corner we were made to feel completely at home by our hosts Marg and John. Our accommodation and scenery also added to the ambiance, along with all the wonderful home made goodies that Marg served up plus tips on the best places in the area. The accommodation is not...
