If you are after a romantic getaway without missing creature comforts then look no further, we stayed in Nest 1 for 4 nights and wished we could extend the time. Our stay was from the end of August and into the first couple of days in September which can be tricky weather wise and there was one stormy night but the nest is warm and cosy with under floor heating in most tiled areas, heat pump and open fire for those romantic evenings and a glass of wine (or 3).

It is the small things that make a stay truly memorable and these are supplied with everything from a sumptous welcome basket to full packs of cotton buds, and even Emery boards in the bathrooms if needed. There is an abundance of wildlife (including frogs, crickets, eagles, swift parrots, and even wild duck). Oh and you have to try the outdoor spa, even on a cold morning it is the warmest way to get clean with the best view nature could summon. Speaking of views, Des has built the Nests on some of the worlds greatest. From every angle there is a view which will take your breath away, if you an early riser in the wintery months grab your camera, brace yourself and step out to take shots of the way the fog settles and the rising sun, it is a sight that needs to be seen to be believed - a fantastic experience and one we hope to repeat soon.

We stayed for two nights with friends at Nest 1. We can only agree with other reviewers that this is a fantastic place. Stunning location on its own private hill. Luxury design/decor makes for an indulgent stay . Just check out the website for all the details. It is 6km outside Sheffield and about 45 mins drive to Cradle Mountain.

We had a BBQ of locally bought produce the first night and called in the chef on the second night.

Our last stop in Tasmania before going back to Belgium, and indeed it came up to our expectations. Eagles nest II has it all, nice setting, great rooms (we most liked the African room), an outdoor spa bath with a million dollar view. The difficult choice as a couple is where will you sleep/eat (have a south american bbq, or a romantic dinner outside next to the pond, or ..?) if you've got only 2 nights, .. not easy !! Loved the concept, very good idea's in it, recommend this for couples wanting to have a very romantic break

We stayed for two nights in Eagles nest II on our honeymoon and had a truly wonderful time. We had high expectations after reading internet reviews and Des and his team didn't let us down. We felt decidedly spoilt with all the extras and the house itself has all you could want and more.

The house is unique in its design and decor, making the most of the amazing views of Mt Roland from every angle in the house - its even more impressive than the pictures! We were spoilt for choice with all the spa baths, but the outdoor spa was our favourite - the stars at night were magical.

Bring your yoga mat as it is the most perfect place to connect with nature and find that inner calm that is so often missing from everyday life.

Des is the friendliest host you could hope to meet and will go out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. His staff are trustworthy and considerate - I left my watch behind and they posted it back to me.

There are 2 nests, and my husband and I got to enjoy both as we were married at Nest 2, and had part of our honeymoon at Nest 1. Both have amazing views of Mt Roland, surrounding mountains and the countryside. It was a fantastic location for the wedding, all our guests (and us!) enjoyed themselves immensely! Des, the owner of Eagles Nest was very accommodating to our needs for the wedding without costing us the earth! The caterers were also recommended by Des, and provided a delicious roast buffet!
Both of the nests have many spa baths, all are different and have their own unique touches. Our favourite was the outdoor spa, nestled away and very romantic under the stars.
We truely had a great time staying at Eagles Nest Retreat, and the down to earth kindness of the owner and staff really seals the deal!
