With all the joy that travel brings, there's also a lot of logistics to consider—especially if you're more of an Airbnb-favouring traveller. With shopping, cooking, and restaurant bookings, the realities of preparing a self-catered holiday for multiple friends with varying budgets, tastes, and dietary requirements can quickly dampen your holiday buzz—but this is where Gathar comes in. 

Just because you've chosen to rent your own private accommodation doesn't mean you automatically have to forfeit some of the luxuries usually associated with a hotel booking. In fact, it's the perfect opportunity to take advantage of one of the major perks of booking an Airbnb—having access to a fully equipped kitchen. 

Gathar is referred to as the Airbnb of dinner parties, Gathar is a private chef service that allows you to enjoy restaurant-quality food at home while you hand over everything from sourcing, planning, preparation, cooking, and even clean-up (yes, we're not kidding) to an expert team of fine-dining professionals. 

Whether you're planning a special occasion or want to up the luxury factor on your next holiday, arranging a private chef service with Gathar is much more accessible (and affordable!) than you might think. 

With menus starting from $96 per person for shared feast style meals or $105 per person for a combination of shared and plated sit-down style dishes, you'll easily be able to plan everything from super memorable and romantic dinners for two up to larger family-style feasts and fine dining experiences (caviar service included!). 

All you have to do is pick the place, time, and menu, and Gathar's built-in concierge team will ensure your private chef will arrive, armed with fresh ingredients ready to cook, serve and clean up.

Also, did we mention having a private chef come to you means you don't have to factor in organising Ubers, babysitters, or corkage fees? And most importantly, there are no closing or kick-out times, so the fun never ends. 

The team can also assist with extra special details such as catering to individual dietary needs or arranging unique add-ons like oysters, cheese courses, or birthday cakes to transform your stay into a seriously unforgettable experience. 

Prices are subject to change, based on produce availability. Learn more about upgrading your next holiday away with the team at Gathar here
