Words cannot amount to how truly luxurious The Eagles Nest is. I went for business but it felt more pleasurable than anything else. Privacy is paramount here and that's exactly what you get. Your own swimming pool, Jacuzzi, cinema system, fridge stocked with complimentary and mini bar goods. We had a personal chef come to our villa (The Eyrie) to... More

We have just experienced one of the most amazing weekends ever. We stayed in the First Light Temple for 2 nights for my husbands 50th birthday. The villa was simply stunning, everything you could want was there. The views were amazing & the surrounding bush/landscaping was fantastic and all very private. The fridge was packed with loads of yummy food... More

We had three nights in the First Light villa; an absolutely luxurious villa, lacking nothing. Situated in beautiful garden setting with wonderful views, this villa is indulgent luxury to be savored. We had the in house Chef (Keith) prepare dinner on 2 occassions which was simply wonderful. The 5 course Chef's selection was full of good surprises , the Northland... More

The high tech villas have all that you need plus the one touch control makes it all so easy. Its a place where you can... More

A stay at Eagles Nest is a must. Its simply perfect in every way. The staff were immaculate, the property was stunning, the food sublime.. We had a private chef called Mike. He was the best chef in the world.

We stayed at Eagles Nest for our wedding anniversary in June last year. (It has taken me awhile to get around to reviewing it!) I had heard so much about it and had anticipated staying for so long. It is the best place I have EVER stayed and I travel a lot and stay in nice hotels. We stayed in... More

We have come here for the 2nd time. And we enjoyed it as much as last year. We were 3 couples and choose the wrong Villa (2 of the 3 rooms were small without nice outdoor view) but William has done everything nicely to make our stay the greatest. We'll definitely come back and will call William before our coming.

My husband and I (and our friends) stayed at The Eyrie for 3 nights recently. The villa itself was absolutely beautiful with amazing views. The pool and deck area were lovely and the hot tub was fantastic (particularly with a glass of bubbles in hand)! The villa had everything you could possible want and the food provided for breakfast was... More

We really enjoyed the private chef and the little touches (candles refreshed each day, exceptional linen and towells, glass around deck and pool cleaned every time we went out it... More
