Eagles Nest

Discover paradise at the Eagle’s Nest Luxury Villa Retreat, a 75-acre estate overlooking the Bay of Islands. Guests are within walking distance of the charming town of Russell, yet are tempted to stay put in the remarkably luxurious villas; four of the five offer their own Jacuzzi, heated horizon-edge lap pool, air conditioning, original artwork, home theater system, fully equipped gourmet kitchen and more. Of course, there are ample outdoor activities to pursue — big-game fishing, sailing, diving, kayaking, bush walking, helicopter flightseeing and romantic picnicking on private islands.

Why we love it: Book a personal chef in advance; he or she will use the freshest local ingredients to create a true gourmet experience in your villa.
