What makes a perfect kitchen? To some, it’s so thoughtfully accessorized you can unleash your inner foodie and create a culinary masterpiece. To others, it’s one that comes with a private chef to do all the cooking while you recline by the pool.
Either way, within Inspirato’s collection of 900+ vacation options, there’s a kitchen for every taste. The majority of the club’s residences feature spacious, gourmet kitchens stocked with everything a chef might need. Even at Inspirato’s luxury hotel and resort partners, many rooms and suites are equipped with cooking supplies and appliances. Keep reading to explore five of the very best kitchens in the Inspirato Collection and get some culinary inspiration for your next vacation.
Villa Della Luna
Sonoma County, California
The best way to enjoy the kitchen at Villa Della Luna, one of Inspirato’s most popular residences, is not in the kitchen at all. It’s poolside, with friends, enjoying the endless views from this private, four-acre hilltop abode. Stop by the Sonoma farmer’s market, grab some fresh ingredients, and fire up the outdoor pizza oven. While the wood smoke blends with the aroma of freshly baked dough, dive into a case of chardonnay or cabernet.
Sometimes fun in the kitchen just needs a bit of inspiration, and what better place to be inspired than in the heart of Italy’s wine country? Inspirato Members can utilize their expert, on-site Destination Concierge to arrange for a private chef to come right to the Monticelli residence for a lesson in making pasta, the subtleties of fresh olive oil, and the art of cooking with the exotic black truffle. Then open a bottle of local Chianti and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Kiawah Island, South Carolina
The kitchen always seems to be the main gathering place of a home, and at the six-bedroom Monarch residence, Southern charm comes alive in grand style with a kitchen ideally designed for large gatherings. Upscale appliances and expanses of granite are just the beginning. This gourmet kitchen is truly chef-ready and also opens to a large deck with a gas grill, so gather the crew after a day of golf or beach fun and get the party started.
Towering windows let ample sunshine into the open, airy floorplan at Vail’s Beaver Dam residence, and the modern kitchen is right in the center of it all. Inspirato Members and private chefs won’t miss out on any of the action while they spend time in the kitchen, as the living and dining areas surround it. We suggest taking your final product to the outdoor patio and dining amid the idyllic trees and pond in the yard.
St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
The sleek, ultramodern kitchen inside Copa Caneel is certainly a delight, but the true treasure awaits outside. Under a shady, thatched-roof cabana, the residence’s outdoor kitchen comes complete with a grill and large, poolside table for al fresco gatherings. Any Caribbean vacation should be full of time spent outside, and at this beautiful residence, Inspirato Members can feel the sea breeze on their face and watch the waves as they cook up dinner for the group.
Inspirato Members can have their residence’s refrigerator stocked with groceries prior to arrival, so when they show up, they can step into these kitchens and dive right in. Alternatively, members frequently hire professional chefs to take advantage of the top-of-the-line appliances and tools to dish up a custom, gourmet meal.
