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.

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.
