"Everyday Affluent" Can Be Pampered in Newport Coast Vacation Home

"Everyday Affluent" Can Be Pampered in Newport Coast Vacation Home

Do you consider yourself a member of the "everyday affluent" who has endured poor vacation experiences or, at least, been forced to congregate near common, working-class folks?

Well, Brent Handler has an idea you might like:

Never lower your standards from the luxury you deserve--especially after Barack Obama and U.S. Senate Republicans have assured your tax breaks.

Handler announced today his creation: Inspirato, a members-only club for the rich "who want flexibility, luxurious accommodations and amenities, highly personalized service, and a consistent experience from one vacation to the next."

The cost? After the one-time initiation fee of $9,500 (plus $2,500 in annual renewal fees), you can vacation "hassle-free" in a luxury residence for about $1,000-per-night, according to Handler.

Available "spacious and refined" residences are in places such as Newport Coast; Los Cabos, Mexico; Tuscany, Italy; Aspen, Colorado; Deer Valley, Utah; Maui, Hawaii; and Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

I tried to review the vacation properties, but Handler's website requires you to register before you can inspect its listings.
