“A little slice of perfection in Tasmania...”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

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!

This is THE best place to stay! My husband and I have stayed in many places in Tasmania and throughout the world, and this is truly one of THE very best.
If you want privacy, space, solitude and total luxury, then this is the place for you.
Stunning breathtaking views from the expansive glass (floor to ceiling).
Relaxation was our order of the day, and believe me - this accomm oozes it!
Hop onto eaglesnest.com.au for their last minute deals, you definately will not be disappointed.

We stayed in both Nest I and Nest II for 2 families, all together have 10 persons. When we arrived, it was raining so heavily and the cloud was so thick that we could hardly see Mt. Roland.

Having said so, we enjoyed prepared dinner ourselves with the wonderful kitchen equipment and we have good fun and a great night. It was so lucky that the rain stopped and we can see the wonderful sky with lot of stars.

The next morning, what greet us first was the rising sun. It's so amazing and the view was fantastic.... and we could see Mt. Roland very clearly. Wonderful view!

One night is definitely not enough ..... all my family members loved the place so much!

Thanks Des for building such wonderful buildings and be such a wonderful host to have all details taken care of.

We have stayed at Eagles Nest ll twice now for 7 nights each time and are planning our third trip. Everything is absolutely amazing. From the welcoming gift basket and breakfast provisions, The roaring fire and heated floors to the gorgous veiws.
I love waking up each morning to the veiw of Mount Roland outside my window; Lying in the hammock in the sun, reading a good book; Relaxing in the spa with a glass of wine, while the water fountain runs outside the room.
It's so close to everything you could want. Des is fantastic! So friendly and accomodating.
We love this place and it is the highlight of our trip to Tasmainia every year.

Room Tip: The Asian Suite is my favourite. The sun doesn't come through in the morning to wake you and the...

Stunning! We three loved our two night stay in Eagles Nest II last November. A sweet country road lead us to the private paradise of Eagles Nest II, where we were greeted by peaceful surrounds and the lovely & welcoming Des! Once we entered, we were lost in the visual delights of the interior, from the beautifully decorated & furnished suites/rooms, full of artifacts from around the world, to the huge windows overlooking the majestic Mt Rowland from every living space - WOW! The large, clean space, the most generous supply of fresh breakfast treats in the refrigerator - utensils for everything in the devine kitchen................... even the toiletries you may have forgotten to bring are in the ensuites and bathroom - everything and more is here at Eagles Nest II. Our family will always be grateful for such wonderful memories shared in a magical place. We will definitely return to view the beautiful sunrise and enjoy breakfast by the special lake! Must get to the upstairs reading room next time ......!!

Room Tip: We recommend early risers stay in the African suite and late risers in the Japanese suite (both stun...

Such a fabulous get away spot. We spent 4 nights here and our group had a total of 6 people - plenty of space for everyone. A great space for cooking and outdoor BBQs. A short drive from Devonport and Sheffield is only 10 minutes away. The house is clean and welcoming. Des the owner was incredibly accommodating. We will be coming back for sure.

We recently stayed at Eagles Nest II for two nights for my birthday – and loved every minute! From the moment we arrived, Des made sure that we were very comfortable and felt right at home – and was even there to welcome us personally. Des thinks of everything that you could possibly need, and makes sure that you have it available (including provisions for a wonderful fresh breakfast – some of the best eggs we’ve ever had!). The house itself was warm and comfortable, and the scenery it overlooks is nothing short of stunning. We have stayed in a lot of places, and Eagles Nest is one of our all-time favorites. And as Des says, if you can’t relax at Eagles Nest, you can’t relax anywhere ☺ We would also highly recommend you check out Simon from “Luxury Experiences Tasmania” – he cooked us the most amazing dinner! We will definitely be back to Eagles Nest Retreat – it’s absolutely fabulous!
