We all know that most travelers rely on the reviews of others before making their vacation decisions. Although Inspirato can tell you what makes vacationing with the club so great — beautiful accommodations, incredible destinations around the globe, expert care every step of the way, and so on — we know member experiences and reviews are much more important to discerning travelers.
At Inspirato, members love to share their travel memories and club experiences on social media and on inspirato.com, where they go into detail about their vacations, accommodations, and care teams. Members rely on these testimonials to help make future travel decisions, and Inspirato loves to use them to make any necessary improvements in the member experience.
We’ve gathered a few reviews below to highlight some of the experiences members have recently shared from their vacations and to help inspire your next vacation.
A beachy time in San Diego
In February 2017, member Angela Dill and her family took a quick trip to San Diego, staying in the club’s new residence located only a few blocks from popular La Jolla Beach and La Jolla Shores Park. She shared her experience and photos with the Official Inspirato Member Travel Group on Facebook. “I could not have been more pleased!” Angela wrote. “Not only are the views from the residence breathtaking, but the house is only a few minute walk away from La Jolla beach and park.”
The residence’s convenient location made trips to the beach easy, but Angela’s family took full advantage of everything else to do in Southern California, as well. “Our activities included visiting the San Diego Zoo, enjoying fresh seafood, and playing at the beach,” she wrote. Throughout it all, her Inspirato Destination Concierge made it all happen seamlessly.
Our Destination Concierge went above and beyond to ensure all our needs were met. Thanks Inspirato!Angela DillInspirato Member on Facebook
Soaking up the culture of Florence
Though he traveled to Florence in 2015, member Ryan Houck is still dreaming about his vacation to Inspirato’s La Limonaia residence – so much so that he was inspired to write a review on inspirato.com two years after the fact. “Occasionally, I flip through photos of La Limonaia online. It’s been nearly two years since my visit but perusing the photos allows me to go back, in some small way,” Ryan wrote.
The beautiful residence boasts classic Florentine design with modern upgrades throughout, including what many travelers might think is a nonexistent amenity in this ancient city: a private pool. “Many properties—even expensive ones—are little more than clones. La Limonaia is unique,” Ryan wrote. “Tucked into one of Florence’s many narrow streets, inside what appears to be a nondescript apartment complex, upon arrival, La Limonaia coaxes a smile out of even the weariest traveler. And a pool in Florence—in the city!”
The residence is in the heart of the historic city, placing it in convenient walking distance of Florence’s biggest attractions, such as the Duomo, the Accademia museum, and Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral. For Ryan, however, the best perk of staying here went beyond simply viewing those popular sights. “While classic tourist attractions must have their due, it is the other side of the Arno that brings me back—food, workshops, markets and the like,” he wrote. “That’s a much longer walk from La Limonaia—but it’s Florence, so you should. Walk, that is.”
Room for everyone on Kiawah Island
Kiawah Island is a family-favorite destination in South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Member Joan Ankrom brought her extended family to this barrier island recently to experience its timeless charm. Inspirato’s residences on Kiawah are large and spacious, allowing Joan and family to all spend their vacation under one roof.
“We have just returned from the Azalea property on Kiawah Island, and had a very positive experience,” Joan wrote. “The property itself is fantastic. Gorgeous but supremely comfortable, our entire family enjoyed it, ages 8 to 74. There was plenty of space for the kids to be, well, kids, and the adults to enjoy some peace and quiet, yet also enough space to come together as well.”
The 5,100-square-foot property features all the amenities a family needs for a relaxing getaway, and Joan’s family took it all in. “The heated infinity pool was a real high point, especially when temps dipped a bit and the wind picked up for a few days, as March is known to do,” Joan wrote. “It’s the little details that made a difference, too. The elevator was a Godsend for my mom, who is due to have knee replacement surgery next month. Well-positioned night lights made sleeping in a new space less scary for the littler ones.”
The family shared meals in the well-equipped kitchen, rode around the island on bikes (delivered to the house thanks to their Destination Concierge’s advance planning), and enjoyed taking the provided supply of beach chairs to the water, just a quick walk or bike ride away.
Highlights included golf (of course), biking with the family, the heated infinity pool, and enjoying a much needed dose of rest & relaxation. We'd absolutely return anytime. Thank you to the entire Inspirato crew!Joan AnkromInspirato Member on inspirato.com
