Everything about the Eagles Nest was perfect. The house was beautiful with a second-to-none view, the food prepared by the chef was excellent, the service provided by the staff was impeccable. Certainly 7 star worthy, and a place not to be missed if you are traveling to the Bay of Islands in New Zealand.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have travelled to the extent we have , but Eagles Nest is a cut above everywhere else..including 7 star establishments! The staff, William, Kieran and our private chef Keith made our stay so wonderful, easy and welcoming. The privacy, location, breathtaking views from our First Light Villa will remain with me for the rest... More

We have traveled all over the world as many have who stay here. Indeed, Tops! Ranks with our top lovely, peaceful places such as, Post Ranch Inn (near home), Four Seasons Hualalai, and Maldives Resorts. Yes it is pricey, but it is essentially, an upscale home (minor quirks, like home, but always staff to deal with it!) with great style... More

If you are looking for privacy, exclusivity and stunning 360 degree views this easily ranks in the top 5 in NZ. There are 4 villas with Rahimoana the most expensive and upmarket and in a class of its own. We were in the Sacred Space villa which was extremely well appointed. The villa slept 4 couples, had a great out... More

I was so sad to leave this gorgeous place. We are already talking about coming back. The views from the villas are breathtaking and the private lap pool was fantastic. (We stayed in the three bedroom villa for two nights.) I loved the fresh cut herbs in the kitchen from the herb garden out back and the stocked fridge. There... More

I am blessed to have a husband who arranged a surprise honeymoon and doubly blessed to have been taken to this blissful location. Landed on the H for honeymoon landing spot in a chopper right outside our villa. The scenery is a cross between amalfi coast , island of Capri, Santorini and the lush green of NZ. The staff are...

Four nights at Eagles Nest (Eagle Spirit) went far too quickly. The arrival by helicopter from Waiheke was worth every dollar/penny as we circled over the headland and landed to be greeted by Callum and William and whisked away in the All Black VW vehicle to be taken downhill to Eagle Spirit where the view across the Bay of Islands...

We have just spent the most amazing two days at Eagles Nest, not very hard to see why this place is rated one of the best in the world. The villa was beautiful, staff were very friendly, our chef was incredible. Would highly recommend this to anyone considering staying here. Thankyou Eagles Nest for a very enjoyable stay.
