Eagles Nest

60 Tapeka Rd.
Bay of Islands , New Zealand http://eaglesnest.co.nz/
64 (9) 403-8333

All but unknown in America, Eagles Nest is famous in New Zealand for its setting (directly on the water in the placidly beautiful Bay of Islands), the scale of its five freestanding villas (the smallest is 1,107 square feet), and its aesthetic profile (brusquely modern and acres of glass). With villas sporting full up-to-the-minute kitchens and lap pools at four of the villas, Eagles Nest is an utterly private experience. The well-bred town of Russell is less than 10 minutes by foot from the retreat, at the bottom of a gentle hill edged in lush bush.
