Eagles Nest, Russell
Eagles Nest offers a range of five exclusive and unique private villas. ‘Sacred Space Villa' boasts a magnificent two storey glass-roofed living area which encourages sunlight from every aspect – and huge doors which lead out onto an expansive outdoor deck area complete with a 20 metre horizon-edge lap pool and a jacuzzi. The stylish living space transforms gracefully from relaxed living to formal dining and then into your own private movie theatre at night! ‘Sacred Space’ has four beautifully appointed bedrooms – including the impressive Kingfisher Suite which occupies the entire upstairs and boasts breathtaking views across the bay from every window.
‘First Light Temple Villa’ is the ultimate romantic hideaway – a stylish split-level one bedroom villa with floor-to-ceiling glass doors which slide back to allow the outdoors in. The contemporary double bedroom is located on the mezzanine level with an adjoining glass walled shower and bathroom – both of which enjoy spectacular views across the peninsula to the ocean beyond. Outside, there is a large patio with an outdoor fireplace, should the evening bring a slight chill.
Perfect for up to three couples or a family, the ‘Eagle Spirit Villa' and ‘The Eyrie Villa’ each offer three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, stylish kitchens, open-plan living and dining areas, private heated horizon edged swimming pools – and wonderful elevated locations amidst native bush, overlooking the beautiful Bay of Islands.
The jewel in Eagles Nest’s crown, those seeking the ultimate private villa retreat should look no further than the ‘Rahimoana Villa’ – this ultra chic escape boasts four bedrooms, a lap pool, jacuzzi, gym, sauna, home theatre, a private beach and 320 degree Bay of Islands views! And if this wasn’t enough, use of a Porsche Cayenne Turbo is included in your stay!
Each villa benefits from a well-equipped gourmet kitchen – but if cooking is not your thing, your hosts can arrange for a private chef to cater for you. On arrival, your villa will be stocked with a bottle of French Champagne and plentiful breakfast provisions. If you would like shopping done for you in advance, then this can easily be arranged – all we need is a list of your preferences.
The Eagles Nest estate boasts a myriad of walking tracks leading to private and secluded beaches. Fitness enthusiasts can make use of the estate’s mountain bikes – whilst those keen to be pampered can enjoy a private in-villa massage or a range of beauty treatments including facials, manicures, body scrubs and pedicures. The Bay of Islands area offers world-class big game fishing, scenic cruising, sailing, diving, helicopter safaris, golfing and wineries.
