A chef is also extremely popular for that first night for larger groups. Most travelers arrive in St. Thomas in the afternoon and will be settling into their Villa between 4 p.m and 7 p.m. Our guests enjoy having a chef already at the Villa putting the finishing touches on a meal they have selected to be served after freshening up or a dip in the pool. A follow up breakfast or brunch the following morning is also very nice and an excellent way to start your first full day on island. A chef can work with you on the menu before your arrival. She can also provide you with some basic food items for your refrigerator at the same time. Again, just let us know. Or contact the following chef and caterers directly on their websites: Shay (specializing in wedding and special event cakes!), Matayhoum for in villa chef services with custom menus, Meredith for provisioning your villa, Laura for a variety of catering services, and Ted’s Supper Club for small intimate in home gatherings.
