About Eagles Nest


The Bay of Islands in Northland is the worlds ultimate maritime playground where the intrinsic romanticism and emotional lure of water is an ever-changing backdrop to the worlds ultimate retreat… Eagles Nest.

Eagles Nests five luxurious villas nestle into an extravagantly beautiful island-like peninsula along a ridgeline that drops into a valley – reminiscent of a huge nest.  Ancient eagles once soared in these pristine skies. As amazing architects and creative interior designers, they built their homes where now sit the ultra luxurious nests of the human variety, where gracious, unobtrusive yet attentive Kiwi staff cater to your every whim.

Culinary resources, including fabulous resident chefs, a superb wine cellar and fresh locally sourced foods, create memorable dining experiences in your own villa.  Spa therapists are available for exquisite in-villa treatments and our resident personal trainer can help maintain or enhance your regimen.  And the Bay of Islands is world-renowned for every water sport known to man.

We all dream of enjoying the luxury and inspiration of the ocean from our own personal holiday home on the coast and the villas at Eagles Nest fulfill these dreams.They express our instinctive attraction to water and embody the height of luxury. The constantly changing skies and ocean, the boats, wild life, sunrises and sunsets are a spectacular magnet, and the different colors and tones and the sound of the waves and bird life attract us to the essence of life, nature and serenity.  The villas at Eagles Nest are the perfect balance and antidote to the hectic, modern, urban lifestyle.

Sited and designed to maximize and enhance the views, large windows open to the sea and subtropical landscapes, seamlessly connecting the outdoors to their interior spaces.Consistently elegant, simple style with eclectic, informal interiors perfectly enhance inspirational views. You will feel like you are on your own private island yet still have the infrastructure of the charming and historic village of Russell just two minutes away.
