Located near the highest point in the prestigious San Diego community of La Jolla, Inspirato’s Arches home is nothing short of stunning. The mid-century modern masterpiece offers four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, more than 3,000 square feet of space, and the perfect setting for a memorable California vacation.

Members Scott and Sammi Seltzer and their two sons were the first Inspirato travelers to stay at Arches, which they visited over the Fourth of July holiday. “It’s even nicer in person than in the photos,” Scott said. “It’s a beautiful home, very comfortable. It’s all on one floor, and with all the glass windows, it feels very open.”

His favorite part? The views. Thanks to its elevated perch, Arches affords guests jaw-dropping views of the coastline, natural coves, and the Pacific Ocean. Its thoughtful design allows for panoramic vistas from just about everywhere in the home.

“There are incredible views from every room. It’s just below the top of the tallest point in San Diego by a big observatory, so you get 360-degree views,” Scott said. “The sunsets are incredible. That spot is one of the most beautiful and scenic places in all of the United States.”

With “absolutely perfect” weather—as Scott describes it—during their week in San Diego, the family spent lots of time using of the outdoor space at Arches. They did yoga in the backyard and relaxed in the outdoor lounge, which features a grill, hot tub, bar, fireplace, and large TV.

Inside, Arches boasts everything travelers would expect from an Inspirato luxury vacation home—and then some. In addition to clean, meticulously detailed aesthetics, Scott says the home has the “latest, brand-new technology,” including a Sonos sound system for a crystal-clear listening experience throughout the home and outdoor space. The beautiful, open kitchen features high-end Gaggenau appliances, multiple ovens, and a wine cooler, making it perfect for cooking—or hiring a chef to do it for you, as Scott and Sammi did.

It is a phenomenal house with one of the best views anywhere. Waking up each morning with the Pacific Ocean glistening through the huge glass windows is indescribable! We had an incredible vacation in beautiful La Jolla. There are endless activities for everyone and our concierge Jamie was great! He is eager to please and knows the area so well. We will be back!

Of course, Scott, Sammi, and family spent plenty of their vacation exploring San Diego, and Arches’ ideal location in the heart of La Jolla made that easy. “There’s an endless amount of activities to do nearby,” Scott said. The family kayaked in the ocean and drove a few minutes down the hill to La Jolla cove, home to sea lions, dolphins, numerous types of birds, and excellent snorkeling. “I can’t say how cool La Jolla cove is,” Scott said. Arches is also a quick drive from the acclaimed Torrey Pines Golf Course, the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, Coronado Island, and restaurants serving just about any type of cuisine you might be craving. “Within 15 minutes you can get to anything,” Scott says.

“We’ve stayed in many Inspirato homes and Arches is definitely up at the top,” Scott said. “This was a perfect family vacation. I definitely recommend it and would go back.”
