The president of Inspirato himself has talked about the level of superior customer service that onsite Inspirato personal advisors provide. He notes that:
“My personal advisor knows I only want tee times before 9 am or after 3 pm, and I drink Cabernet.” -President David Kallery
This sentiment – that the level of service provided improves the entire vacation experience – is echoed by others across the Internet.
However, Inspirato is not for everyone. Cost could be prohibitive to some travelers. You do not join Inspirato to save money on travel. Read what an Inspirato vacation can cost here.
A user on the popular forum FlyerTalk echoes this sentiment. He posted an extensive review following a trip to an Inspirato ski vacation property in Telluride:
“This is a destination in which Inspirato excels vs. a traditional VRBO or Airbnb… they know the area very well.” – ray022
A member at an Inspirato ski location notes,
“The house was great, and I found the highlights to be its large square footage, its prime location, and the concierge and housekeeping services.” -Flyertalk User
On visiting another Inspirato property in Cabo San Lucas, the same user noted,
“It was everything that we had hoped it to be and the only consolation in leaving is that we’re planning to return later this year!” -Flyertalk User
This response is repeated across the various reviews posted on Internet forums.
FlyerTalk user gold23 shares these thoughts.
“Inspirato is phenomenal conceptually, and when you are on the property it is amazing.”
The quality of location and services is mentioned time and time again in reviews of the properties.
I personally know families that have used Inspirato for family reunion type vacations, or even HUGE groups of friends. Say five families with kids that travel together, maybe twenty-seven people in all staying in a large home. Although the cost is close to $3000 per night, splitting this five ways is not bad.
There is little to no risk of unclean accommodations, inappropriately noisy neighbors, or locations not living up to photographs listed online.
Though it may not compare price wise with budget rental accommodations such as Airbnb, the quality of services is on another level. The drawback to most members seems to be the availability of the homes. Most properties are booked in peak seasons, and the prices far exceed using VRBO or Airbnb.com.
