A Homeowner Success Story on Kiawah Island

Kristin Lauro and her family have been vacationing on Kiawah Island since her children were toddlers. “My youngest son was a wild man… he loved to run and play with absolutely everyone, now he’s 26 years old.” Lauro explained. Unlike the beaches her family frequented in the Northeast, the first time they went to Kiawah, “my boys could roam up and down the beach, and I could read a book and still see they were safe. Kiawah is such a safe place for families with children that moms get a vacation, too!”


Lauro decided to partner with Inspirato to manage her vacation home on Kiawah because of the reliability and security it provides. The home, named Azalea, is a three-story standalone residence just a five-minute bike ride from the beach. With six bedrooms and more than 1,000 square feet of decks and porches—plus access to resort activities such as kayaking, fishing, spas, dining, golf, and tennis—it’s a popular rental for large groups. Along with that comes a higher risk of damage, but Lauro has peace of mind knowing the home is offered exclusively to Inspirato members.


“After deciding to partner with Inspirato, I noticed that items from my home were no longer disappearing after guests departed,” she said. “I also appreciate the concierge service that guests experience with Inspirato. Not only are the guests being taken care of, but my home is as well. Before partnering with Inspirato, if there was an issue with the HVAC system, plumbing, etc., I had to personally handle the issue without knowing what was actually involved. Now I have peace of mind knowing there are boots on the ground to handle mechanical issues, or any other issues that can develop during a guest’s stay.”


In fact, Lauro has had such a positive experience that they are considering adding their next home to the Inspirato portfolio as well. “The first thing we did when we were thinking about another investment was talk to Inspirato and see if they would be interested in another property. It’s been such a positive relationship for us.”
