As the plane descends into New Zealand you take in the aerials, the deep blue ocean water juxtaposed with the North Island’s rolling green landscapes. Even from this vantage point you admire a country of idiosyncrasy. You’ll be met at Auckland International upon arrival, a representative assisting your family as you transfer to a domestic flight to the Bay of Islands. Then at Kerikeri Airport your rental vehicle keys are waiting, the vacation kicking off with the country’s unruffled ease and relaxed style.
Clear turquoise waters sooth any travel aches and the thick green topography guides you to the renowned Eagles Nest in Russell. From up here the views are endless, a plethora of tiny islands twinkling in the ocean water, and the Bay of Islands welcoming you for four days of exploratory bliss. After a long international flight you’ll want some rest and recovery time, so indulge in what the Eagles Nest can offer. World class villas feature private Jacuzzis, and are equipped with a gourmet kitchen, home theater system, contemporary furnishings, and hidden locations amongst the 75 acre gardens. It’s hard to believe you’re within walking distance of Russell’s historic town, the villa blending into the green topography and foliage. Soak up the serenity and dip into the private heated horizon-edge pool; those astonishing vistas omnipresent throughout your four days.
