Food & Accommodation

Do you Love delicious, decadent but healthy world renown food?

You are either a foodie or will become one at Shunyata. The 4 on the enneagram usually is the creative one - the musician, the artist and for years I wondered what happened to mine.  Now I know it comes out with food.  I never had to do the 20 years of housewife, it would never have worked for me - so you get the benefit of the passion and love I put into food and the gift of the love of  nurturing people, a triple cancer.  If you have had to cook, you get a break, you get to share love inspired food that is healthy and a little naughty but promise you will leave with some inspiration to eat more healthy and nutriicious  for your body. or body trype. 

My love of food and cooking started in France, but travelling for many years and being a travel agent for 20 years - I got to experience many cuisines and put them together with gorgeous NZ produce, usually seasonal, sometimes organic but local and great, free of preservatives and fresh and make my own chutneys and dips.  Conscious food cooked with love!

If you come as a couple you will get gorgeous food and experience a night to the 3 course romantic dinner with the menu changing seasonally - some ideas are :
Double goats cheese soufles, bruschetta beyond italian standard, excellent salads, vietnamese
amazing bowls, locally grown venison, akaroa salmon done so many ways, fig jam with pate,
whatever I feel into you would love that night.

But my healthy eggs benedict, chia pudding, porridge beyond porridge, fritatas and asian
inspired bowls, dips made with love and indian curries  will leave you salivating and wanting to cook better.

I now know what works for me from the ayurvedic perspective and will be implementing this eating plan at home as I felt so good with the delicious food you served Paru  this week and thanks for giving me the inspiration.

There are two private rooms in the house right next to bathrooms.

The main room is spacious and looks out onto Wreck Bay and has a very comfortable queen bed- This is given to the first booking or used for couples. Next to bathrooms.

The rose room looks out over to the rose garden and is next to the bathrooms.
King Single Bed

Sometimes in summer a client might want to sleep up in the hut above the house which
is a little more private, bit more rustic,  but great views over the bay.
