We had a three bedroom all with ensuite bathrooms for the two of us, it was spotlessly clean on a well greeted arrival. The fridge was full of things that were complimentary and restocked each day. The villa had its own pool with fantastic views across the bay. The service from all staff was also excellent. Cannot fault our stay.

Took the family to Eagles Nest to get away from the city for the weekend and I cannot overstate how excellent the stay was. The house itself was gorgeous and the views were amazing. We had a very relaxing weekend and are counting down the days till we can visit again.

I cannot possibly say enough good about this place. Our house was spectacular and the view was breathtaking. But what really made the experience over the top was the staff. Cairin, William, and Monica took extraordinary care of our family in making sure we had everything we wanted just as a matter of course and dealing with unique issues of a birthday celebration and passing the time during a surprise severe storm. They are what makes this place so special.
