Inspirato Marks One-Year Anniversary with More Vacation Choices for Members
Club’s growing portfolio boasts more than 100 properties in 35 world-class destinations
DENVER (January 19, 2012) - Inspirato, the new destination club for a savvy generation of affluent consumers, announced this week three new destinations and seven additional properties to its rapidly growing portfolio of luxury homes in the world's most exciting vacation spots.
"Inspirato is committed to providing members with as many vacation choices as possible," says Brian Corbett, Inspirato's Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer. "We've managed to double our portfolio to more than 100 properties since opening our doors a year ago - and we plan to announce even more vacation options each month in 2012."
Inspirato's newest destinations include:
South Beach, Miami, Fla.: The Setai Hotel and Resort in Miami Beach's Oceanfront District will captivate even the most sophisticated vacationer. From Inspirato's luxury two-bedroom residence 19 floors above the surf and city, vacationers can easily enjoy all that one of Miami's most exciting and multicultural neighborhoods has to offer.
Naples, Fla.: With a new residence situated in the heart of Olde Naples, Inspirato members can now enjoy the area's sun-drenched beaches, temperate Gulf waters and the tropical wilderness of the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve.
South Walton, Fla.: Steps away from famed beaches and framed by some of the most mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets in North America, Inspirato's first two South Walton residences are set in family-friendly Rosemary Beach, on the gulf side of Scenic Route 30A, near the Eastern Green and the gorgeous Coquina Pool.
Inspirato also added new residences in the following existing club destinations:
Aspen, Colo.: Inspirato's fourth residence in Aspen is centrally located in the heart of one of the world's best year-round resort towns - three easy, walking blocks to shops and restaurants, and four blocks to the Silver Queen Gondola.
Punta de Mita, Mexico: Inspirato's newest Mexican property - Casa Mariposa - is the largest first-row home in Real Del Mar. With 14,000 interior and exterior square feet just steps from the beach club and resort amenities, this paradise-within-paradise provides ample room for multiple families, couples and large groups.
Turks and Caicos: Inspirato adds yet another residence with convenient access to one of the top 10 beaches in the world. This bright and airy beach-level residence has three bedrooms, professional-grade appliances in the kitchen, and a wraparound terrace that is just steps from the sand and resort amenities such as pools, croquet lawn and fitness center.
Inspirato's innovative business model - leasing rather than owning vacation properties to keep membership fees and rates low - inspired Forbes to name Inspirato one of America's Most Promising Companies in 2011.
"People are recognizing what Inspirato learned early on: it's no longer a status symbol to overpay for a luxury vacation," explains Corbett. "There is a huge market of affluent consumers out there looking for a smarter alternative to the traditional vacation options. And we at Inspirato are here to serve them."
Designed specifically for a new generation of luxury consumers, Inspirato offers the best of destination club consistency and service, together with unmatched value, flexibility and low-cost membership. Our members have access to a growing portfolio of luxury homes in the world's top destinations, including California, the Caribbean, Colorado, France, Hawaii, Italy, London, Mexico, New York City and more. By leasing vacation properties (rather than owning), Inspirato is able to keep membership fees low, offer up to 80 percent off market rates, and easily add homes and destinations as demand increases. Our innovative business model has led to rapid growth since our January 2011 launch, placing Inspirato at the forefront of the "luxury for less" movement.
