We stayed here last week with another couple sharing the 3-bedroom eyrie lodge. It's just beautiful and all the photo's on their website do not oversell the resort. In-lodge catering was excellent and the minivan transfers into and back from the restaurants in Russell worked great. Massages were blissful.

First class from the moment you check in to the moment you leave. Fully stocked kitchen, private chef, massages...the Eagle's Nest caters to you like no other place. Amazing, magnificent, and memorable...will never forget this place.

From start to finish we had a wonderful time at Eagles Nest. Thank you Callum and the team for looking after us so well. The villa was spotless and beds were so comfortable, the staff team were friendly and very helpful. If we hadn't got an itinerary planned we may have never left.

I believe this to be the most beautiful villa in all of New Zealand. The service was impeccable and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The views from each and every area of the villa were breathtaking. It was an experience of a lifetime!!!

It was fantastic, superior service and great staff. A repeat visit for sure. We relaxed, used the pool, used the hot tub & had plenty of privacy. We plan to return to New Zealand & Bay of Islands & return to Eagles Nest.

Excellent service from all staff including booking and transport down to Russell for dinners. Very private and superb accommodation. Well stocked food and wine larder and the private chef (Janine) prepared and served us a superb 5 course dinner in house on New Years Eve . Overall highly recommended venue in the Bay of Islands.

Eagles Nest in Russell New Zealand is located in a lovely stop on a cliff with great views, but there were dead bugs on the window ledges and live ones flying around in our villa. When pointed out they said we do not know what to do about those. Get a ladder and get rid of the dead ones at... More

Dear Madam, Thank you for your kind words about our location, rooms and service. We are however mystified as to your comments about insects. During your one night stay, the villa was immaculately presented and checked prior to your arrival. At no time were any insects present. No staff were contacted or advised that you had any issues and would... More

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
