We stayed in nest II in early May with a group of 4 couples for a special event. The house is beautiful - modern, unique, spacious, yet beautifully homely. From the moment we arrived we were encouraged to treat the residence as home - respect all that is provided as you would your own, but feel free to use everything provided.
The two bedrooms at either end of the house provide the most luxury with private wings and beautiful features such as an in-room spa and separate shower (indoor/outdoor in one and dual head bamboo shower in the other). The other two bedrooms are smaller, more simple and share a bathroom downstairs, however they still share the magnificent views of Mt Roland with the lake in the foreground.
Also sharing that magnificent view is the outside spa which you cannot see from the house. After a little walk along a stone path you find yourself at the outdoor spa. Fill the spa, add bubbles, light the candles and the open fire and watch the sunset on a wonderful day in paradise!
We also had a chef (Cynthia) come in and cook for us one night and she provided a delicious 3 course meal for us all - a definite highlight of the weekend.
Overall it is not a cheap place to stay however it is well worth the price if you are looking for an escape for a special event or just to treat yourself to a weekend away - We will definitely be returning for just that!
