Luxury Villas with Amazing Kitchens - Private Chef Service Available
Would you enjoy having the services of a private chef available for a few special meals, while planning to venture out to one of the excellent local restaurants most nights?
When you reserve one of these luxury villas in Turks & Caicos that boast large, modern, and fully equipped kitchens, our concierge service can arrange for a talented private chef. You can have the chef prepare one special meal, or prepare several meals during your stay, the choice is yours.
Welcome to our collection of “Villas with Amazing Kitchens” in Turks & Caicos. The services of the chef and associated staff are presented to you on a la carte basis.
What’s the Difference Between Villas with Chef Services Included and Chef Services Available?
Before we get into what makes these two groups of villas different, let’s share what they have in common - each villa in these two collections is an extraordinary private home, ideal for a family vacation, with an amazing kitchen.
Villas with Chef Services Included: This collection of villas consists of luxurious private villas where the services of a private chef or cook as well as staff (butler, maid) are included in the price you pay to rent the villa. In Turks & Caicos there are a handful of exceptional homes that come with your own private chef.
These villas are ideal for a group that wants to relax, and not have to shop or go out to dinner each night, and even during the peak holidays weeks, your chef is 100% dedicated to you and your villa for all meals.
Villas with Chef Services Available: This collection of villas are by no means lesser villas. They were selected because they are large villas with amazing kitchens, ideal for a private chef to operate in.
There is no obligation to hire a private chef when you stay in one of these villas. However, if you are planning a special dinner one night, or think it would be fun to have a special sunset celebration another night, these villas are perfectly set-up for a private chef. We have a select network of private chefs available in the Turks & Caicos and can recommend one for you to hire, paid on an hourly rate, plus the cost of the foods and beverages you select.
What Can You Expect From Your Private Chef?
When you make a reservation to have a private chef prepare one or more meals at your villa, you can rest assured that the service will be both professional, and memorable. Once the chef is hired, the two of you will start a fun dialog about the experience you want to have - is it a celebration dinner or some sort? Or perhaps it’s a full week of dinners, or maybe every meal?
However many meals are involved in the agreement between you two, your chef will be responsible for managing the following items:
- Planning the menu for each meal for your revie
- Ensuring that all dietary restrictions and preferences are being met
- Determining upfront whether you want to add a server or butler to enhance the service
- Getting agreement on the budget for the meal before shopping for the ingredients
- Shopping for all ingredients and beverages on the shopping list
- Delivering the food, and setting the table
- Preparing the meal and serving each course
- Clearing the table at the end of the meal
- Washing all plates, utensils, pots and pans, and making sure the kitchen is spotless at the end

Frequently Asked Questions About Villas with Chef & Staff in Turks and Caicos
Is food and beverage included in the price of a villa with a chef?
The cost of the foods and beverages are not included in the price of your villa. Prior to your arrival, we will ask you to do some preliminary meal planning with the chef. After calculating the cost of groceries and beverages for those first meals, the chef will request a deposit to cover the cost of shopping. The remainder of your food bill is paid as the rest of your shopping is done, and then again at the end to make a final settlement.
Can I reserve a chef only for certain meals or do I have to reserve a chef for all meals?
In most cases, yes, chefs can be reserved for one meal at a time. The farther in advance you plan with your WIMCO concierge, the more options you will have. However, during the peak festive holiday season, some private chefs in the Turks and Caicos will only accept reservations for a full day or a full week of service, as opposed to a single meal.
Can I choose the menu when reserving a private chef?
Yes, you can decide the specific dishes you want your private chef to prepare -- as long as the local markets have all the required ingredients. To get started, all private chefs have sample menus that they will share, featuring dishes that they are comfortable preparing. From there you can finalize exactly what you want the chef to prepare…and they will always work closely with you while finalizing the menu.
How much is a Private Chef in Turks and Caicos?
Typically, the cost for a private chef, and perhaps a server is between $75 and $150 an hour, not including the price of the food and beverages. Because your chef will do all of the shopping, meal preparation, serving, and clean-up, it's common to pay for six hours of their time when planning a special meal. The price of our Special Reserve Collection Villas include the unlimited service of a chef.
Is there a minimum stay requirement for Turks and Caicos villas with a private chef?
In most cases, the owners of our larger villas with a chef service included requiring a 7-night minimum stay during the peak winter season. During the low season, however, the minimum night stay requirement for a luxury villa with a private chef is typically only four to five nights. However long you wish to vacation in one of these villas that offer the service of a private chef, your WIMCO villa specialist will negotiate the terms for your length of stay on your behalf.
What services do you get with a fully staffed villa in Turks and Caicos?
The experience starts when you and your WIMCO villa specialist decide which of our Turks and Caicos villas will be the right one for your vacation. Once a villa is reserved, our concierge team will assist in booking your international and local flights, reserving a rental car, arranging airport arrivals service, making restaurant reservations, and setting up any special experiences you desire.
As the arrival date approaches, your concierge will connect you with your private chef, and you will do some preliminary meal planning. When you arrive in your villa, you can expect that it will be pre-stocked with the groceries you ordered, with chilled beverages on hand to help you celebrate your arrival in Turks & Caicos.
