Zen Villa

“Beautiful, serene, private, comfortable and well located. Five nights in this beautiful villa was a magic experience”

Our award winning accommodation is situated in Stirling, Adelaide Hills and there are 3 uniquely styled villas to choose from.

The Zen Villa has a 75m2 decadent feel and the romance of moody decor. Its boasts a stand alone slipper bath, in the open plan Zen bedroom and the spacious walk in rain shower is cleverly positioned under the branches of ancient pine trees. Architecturally inspiring with sunlight streaming through floor to ceiling glass, the light and spacious feel is heightened further by the lofty timber window frames and giant sliding doors. The outside presents its own private north facing, sunny courtyard, housing a top of the range BBQ which is just an added bonus to the deluxe Jag kitchen with its 3.5m island bench. Perfect for entertaining or for utilising for our private chef cooking classes or dinners, even master Chef Tetsuya enjoyed his stay.

In the lounge, 3 metre high ceilings deliver the prefect theatrical stage for antique Thai artwork and authentic cultural artefacts. Comfort is prioritised by the sheer indulgence of vintage leather sofas and sleek zen furniture. Huge spherical pendant lights create mood and drama and the ‘no-expensive spared’ styling evokes an immediate wow factor response. In the bedroom, a wall of  glass, allows the backdrop of lush greenery to illuminate the room, while the eye is drawn immediately to that elegant Instagram able slipper bath, with its own ambient pendant lighting. Flowing sheer curtains create intimacy around the king sized bed and the adjoining en suite’s large format tiles and mirrored walls, accentuate every angle of this award winning architectural delight.

Like all our villas, the Zen Villa has relaxed outdoor seating, underfloor heating and remote control block out blinds. Zen villa has the option of 2 king singles or 1 King Bed with an extra roll down bed available for a 3 rd person share. Zen Villa has the additional convenience of a laundry with washer and dryer and is perfect for our longer stay guests.

Set behind the Sticky Rice Cooking School at 96 Old Mt Barker Rd it is a short 15 min walk to Stirling village centre.


Exclusive yet affordable the Zen Villa is a design statement offering a spacious 75m2 of indoor living area, a private walled outdoor courtyard. Floor to ceiling glass allows garden views and easy indoor /outdoor living.

When you book direct, you can choose the best value room rates, add room extras such as massages and gourmet treats or choose the combined cooking class and experience packages.


    Beautiful, serene, private, comfortable and well located. Five nights in this beautiful villa was a magic experience for us. It is private, has a massive chef's kitchen, comfortable lounge, beautiful big king sized bed, oversized shower, huge deep bath and beautiful views out to the garden. Add in the location - a short drive from Adelaide, amazing things to do/see/eat in close proximity, and walking distance to picturesque Stirling village and/or Crafers if a drink has been enjoyed with dinner. Then add in the cooking school - we had a brilliant experience with Tania, delicious food, great wine and lots of interesting tips we can use back home. All in all, a fabulous adult getaway. Highly recommend.
