EAGLES NEST LOCATION
Eagles Nest is located in the breathtaking Bay of Islands on the North Island of New Zealand. Within easy walking distance of the town of Russell, the villas themselves are perched on a ridgeline that drops down into a valley – reminiscent of a nest, but of the ultra-luxurious human variety.
The bay of islands has over 144 islands to explore, and is frequented by holiday goers for world-class big game fishing, scenic cruising, sailing, diving, bush walking and helicopter sightseeing. One of Eagles Nest’s villas, Rahimoana, also includes use of a Porsche Cayenne, so you can take the car out for a day to explore the surrounding area.
Eagle’s Nest’s five villas each come with outdoor Jacuzzis, wonderful views and gourmet kitchens for enjoying expertly-crafted meals. The one-bedroom First Light is ideal for honeymooners seeking an intimate escape, whereas Eyrie and Eagle Spirit each of three bedrooms; ideal for families. Larger groups can rent the four-bedroom Sacred Space with its pool and two-story glass living room, or Rahimoana for four bedrooms, 320 degree views, a pool and use of a Porsche.
No matter which villa suits your style, you can count on a home theatre system, fully-equipped kitchen, and access to a private beach with them all. Of course, all suites also have Wi-Fi and a safe, as well as local artwork, a mini bar, and amenities like bathrobes and hairdryers.
The Eyrie Situated high up in native bush and overlooking the ocean, The Eyrie villa is perfect for three couples or a family. Three large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms are spread out around a central living room with home theatre and a fireplace, while a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen and dining space continue the open plan. Enjoy your own 59-foot private infinity pool and Jacuzzi to one the side of the villa, plus outdoor dining space and lounge chairs on a frontal patio from which to soak up a little sun.
Eagle Spirit Tucked into the hillside, Eagle Spirit offers peace and relaxation to up to three couples at a time. Three bedrooms each boast their own spacious ensuite bathroom, while a living room, dining space and gourmet kitchen all look out over the Bay of Islands. As with The Eyrie, a home theatre system is installed, as is a 59-foot heated infinity pool with a hot tub at one end. This pool lines the front of the villa, reflecting the views for an incredible effect.
First Light Temple Growing out of a hill and overlooking the seascape is the split-level First Light Temple, a perfect honeymoon suite or romantic retreat for two. A mezzanine bedroom enjoys spectacular views through panorama windows and a skylight over the bed, while the ensuite bathroom boasts a shower with floor-to-ceiling glass. The main floor has indoor and outdoor fireplaces plus glass bifold doors, opening to a stunning balcony that continues the space on three sides of the house. It has a gourmet kitchen, another full bathroom and an outdoor shower as well.
Sacred Space With four bedrooms – three kings with ensuites and a fourth queen with separate bathroom – Sacred space has room for all. The commodious master occupies the entire upstairs and enjoys four exposures, all with superb views. An open plan gourmet kitchen adjoins the dining and lounge areas, which gracefully transform from relaxed living to formal dining and into a private movie theater at night. Outside, beautiful outdoor decks and living areas include the pool and spa on the east, where another full bathroom and outdoor shower adjoins the sauna.
Rahimoana Epitomizing modern minimalism, Rahimoana enjoys 300-degree views and 44 acres of private headland. Four superb ensuited bedrooms occupy the four corners of the house, flanking the generous living and dining areas that lie in between. All have jaw-dropping views and granite balconies that turn into beautifully landscaped lawns, which wrap around to the front of the house where an 82-foot infinity pool steals the show. An enormous private patio sits alongside with pillow-topped day beds and loungers, while a private beach, helipad, private courtyards, gym, sauna, and wine cellar await. All stays at Rahimoana include use of a Porsche Cayenne and private chef-prepared meal daily.
