One of the villas of The Eagles Nest
The villas lie north of Russell, in a more remote part than the surrounding holiday home settlements.

The Eagles Nest is a complex of five rental villas in the Bay of Islands of New Zealand, a few kilometres north of Russell. Located on a headland above the sea with good views of the bay, the secured compound is the most expensive rental accommodation of New Zealand, with a single night costing up to a five-figure sum in New Zealand $ (as of the mid-2000s), depending which of the villas are chosen.[1][2] Guests are also provided with amenities like personal chefs and Porsche cars.[1]

The 5-Star rated Eagles Nest has been awarded the "World Travel Award" for "New Zealand's Leading Resort" and is one of Conde Nast's Top 10 Spas in Australia and South Pacific.[3][4][5] It was also featured on the The Great Outdoors TV show.[6]
