Private Chefs, Cooks and Mixologists: The Gourmands Guide to Tripwix Villas

If you are anything like me, vacations mean guiltless eating and days on the beach where calorie counting are dirty words. If you are anything like my best friend, your holiday choices might hinge on whether the villa’s private chef knows how to prepare gourmet vegan food and has a great supplier of organic spinach for her morning green juice. Luckily for both of us, Tripwix has us covered.

Private Chefs, Cooks and Mixologists

The benefit of reserving a villa with Tripwix is that we select homes for the collection that provide the best services, looking for villas complete with their own team of staff, including private chefs or cooks, bartenders and mixologists. At the same time, our local ambassadors can arrange anything you need in homes where such services are not included in the standard rates. Want a Michelin star chef, let us know in advance and we’ll get you just what you need; want a vegan menu, we’ve got it covered; guten free? Easy-peasy!

Casa Eclipse, Punta Mita comes with a private chef to prepare all meals and mixologist/bartender.

Cook or Private Chef

A point we like to make clear in our property descriptions is whether a home includes a cook or a private chef. When a home says it includes a cook, such as the HMD Honeydew condo in Punta Mita, Mexico, we are referring to the delightful housekeeper who is available to prepare your breakfast, light meals and snacks. However, if a home stipulates there is a private chef and full staff, such as the Atardecer Estate in El Banco, Punta de Mita, you can be sure there is a fully-trained gourmet chef on staff to serve you up a taste bud seductive feast. In all cases, we have a list of vetted, high-quality private chefs whom we can hire on your behalf, so no vacation rental is without the services you need.

Breakfast Service

The majority of the homes we promote provide breakfast service, usually prepared by the housekeeper or private chef depending on the culinary provision of each home. In most cases, ingredients are charged at cost, while some homes include a full breakfast service. Check the inclusions to be sure.

Special Menus

With advance notice, our team can accommodate any dietary requirement or penchant. From vegan menus to keto diets to a kosher kitchen and chef, tell us what you want and we can make it happen.
