We stayed in the First Light Villa for 4 nights. This is a fantastic property. Almost entirely glass with views in every direction including over the bed of stars at night. Even with all the glass it is entirely private and in a secluded setting behind a gated entrance. Extremely well equipped with every modern convenience. Over the course of...

We arrived after the beautiful sun set and it was gorgeous watching it go down while on the water. Once we got settled, our host explained how everything worked in the huge 4 suite, open plan glass house. Each corner holds a suite so noise isn't an issue. The hallways throughout are open to the outside air with a ceiling...

I would consider myself and my wife well travelled and have stayed in some amazing places around the world, however the Eagles Nest takes this to a different level. We decided to use Rahimoana as our intimate wedding venue as well as staying there a couple of nights and this location and villa surpasses all expectations. Eagles Nest was a...

We consider ourselves experienced, discerning and at times demanding international travelers. We have stayed in a number of the best hotels and resorts worldwide. Therefore, we were very selective in choosing a location to celebrate our wedding. With the Eagles Nest, we definitely made the right choice. The location and the infrastructure were wonderful but then, that's what you expect...

My husband and I had a fantastic 1st three nights in New Zealand's Bay of Islands at this amazing and unique lodge, in the First Light one bedroom villa. The floor to ceiling (and it was a very high ceiling!) glass walls which let in light and gave us the unbeatable panoramic views of the bay, were the first thing...

We left the best for last on our two week trip to New Zealand. We stayed at Sacred Space house at Eagles Nest which is one of the most perfect places we have ever stayed. It is a large home with huge windows from which you can see the beautiful Bay of Islands. Great sunsets on one side of the...

Eagles Nest was by far the most luxurious accommodation I've ever experienced. Secluded and private enough for a getaway, close enough to a town center and with top-notch service not to be too remote, I would highly recommend Eagles Nest to anyone who has the opportunity to go. Rooms are spacious, and there are plenty of windows to show off...

From the moment I booked the staff efficiency was perfect in responses to all my queries, on arrival our welcome was genuine and the staff especially Amy take great pride in their role and the guests' every need. We hope to return one day especially to stay at the grand villa Rahimoana for a very special occasion!
