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.

Monticelli

Tuscany, Italy

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.

Monarch

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.

Beaver Dam

Vail, Colorado

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.

Copa Caneel

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.

    Who wouldn’t want a kitchen like any of these!!

  • Sweetp says:

    I am a native of St. Croix looks good. But don’t forget the warm welcome from the strolling iguanas. Gourmet cuisine yes indeed and lovely seaside breeze naturally but don’t forget the iguanas freely strolling along.

  • Paul Fordyce says:

    They r all wonderful.

  • Deborah Bond says:

    I’m ready to leave in the morning. Absolutely beautiful inside and out!

    Now who’s going to pay for my round trip ticket?

  • puddintane says:

    A kitchen as large as any of these would need two people to keep it clean. Certainly not a kitchen for senior citizens. And a white kitchen……………..is there any keeping it clean?

    • doug says:

      In my humble opinion, a “white” kitchen…especially the counter top…..”should be white, or close to it! “Why?”, you may ask? Consider this: Which room in a house should be theee most sanitary? Most will want the kitchen, since that’s where our food is prepared, processed, served, and stored. A non-white countertop can hid all sorts of food particles, whereas….a white counter will demand a higher level of “keeping it clean”. Again, this is just my own opinion, and no doubt, there are many who might disagree.

  • Gary T says:

    I agree, dark counter tops hides food that was thought to be cleaned. I use bleach always.

  • Amy F.V. Williams says:

    These are the most attractive kitchens I’ve ever seen…I want one for my retirement home….

  • Bruce says:

    Pleasant design to the eye but some things are very impractical.
    Since most use synthetic quartz or granite on the counters, it makes sense to use the same
    materials in different complementing colors instead of tile on the back splash because grout
    spaces of tile can stain when food splashes. Use tile elsewhere for decorative accent.
    Most hoods may keep a lower profile and are quieter if they vent horizontally, meaning that
    smaller more decorative types featuring Venetian glass can look like works of art as available
    from Futuro Futuro. Natural wood or bamboo used on the ceiling (as seen in the Colorado and
    Virgin Islands kitchens) brings warmth and wears well since no one walks atop a ceiling. The newer
    vinyl flooring offer toughness and some cushion. If you have to purchase a floor mat, its because
    you chose the wrong flooring. All these kitchens are rather large, appropriate if there are many
    cooks. For one food preparer however these large kitchens can be an inconvenient marathon.

    I like having a bar along one side area of a kitchen so that guests can “hang out” and talk to you while you are busy cooking and perhaps have a glass of wine or an herbal tea as they sit and chat. I also like having a triangle area between sink, refrigerator and stove; it facilitates ease of travel within the kitchen as you gather items and prepare them. Most of these kitchens were really lovely, but lacked those amenities. Perhaps they don’t rely on the homeowner cooking, but instead rely on bringing in chefs and food preparers.
