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

We spent two nights at Eagles Nest last week and had the most wonderful time. Everyone involved there was so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Can't imagine you would ever tire of those views!

If you want an exclusive villa right in the middle of 70 acres of land with no one else around, immersed in luxury and stunning views then think no further than Eagle's nest. Amazing place manned by some amazing staff, William, the manager catered to our every need and was prompt and courteous every time.

You do not have to be a celebrity to enjoy the privacy, tranquillity and great service that the Eagles Nest has to offer. It was our second trip there and we are already planning the next one. When we planned this New Zealand getaway, the biggest question was how to accommodate all our needs. Enough sightseeing for the European part... More

Read any other review. The place is gorgeous, the staff very accommodating, and there were no, repeat no, glitches. Stayed in the 3 bedroom house. Feels like you have left the world behind--but not the French champagne.
