During a Denver charity event, Tom and Kristin Reimann purchased an Exclusive Resorts package to Real Del Mar. During that first Club intro in Mexico, they attended a seaside happy hour with Club Members, and Kristin recalls a pivotal conversation. “This couple was sharing how their teen kids — in Mexico with high school friends— knew how special these trips were, and that’s when we decided, ‘This is what we want.’ We too want our kids to still be traveling with Mom and Dad when they’re in high school.”
Fast forward to February of this year, and after officially joining the Club, Kristin, a busy pharmaceutical executive, jokes she already has 12 wish lists circulating with her Ambassador. “We joined something else initially, but it didn’t have the same feel to it. It felt like you were just booking hotels. And once we joined the Club, we knew wherever we went we would have the same level of service and could expect consistency in quality.”
Along with her entrepreneur husband, Tom, and their two children Ryder (7) and Reese (9), the couple took their first official Club trip to Punta Ballena in Los Cabos. Based in Denver, Kristin explains that escaping the mountains for sun and sand is always an entice. “Our kids have been on jet skis, boats, helicopter rides. We are adventurous when we’re out and about and so look forward to these trips.”
One of the best values of the Club? Time, Kristin says. “Because we are a busy family, it really allows us time to relax and decompress and enjoy one another. It’s so great to connect with the kids. Travel creates an environment where we aren’t worried about anything else. I also love exposing our kids to different cultures and experiences we wouldn’t get living in Colorado.”
What’s more, research is made easy. No exhausting Google search on specific destinations, Kristin explains. Instead, pre-vacation vetting is already handled. “The Club has made traveling easier by narrowing down great destinations. The work has already been done, with the best places and houses. We have so much trust in the Club — no matter where we choose to go, I know it will be fantastic.”
TRAVEL LIFESTYLE VS. HOTELS
“We’re now planning out trips a couple years in advance,” Kristin says. “With our kids in school,
we know when breaks are, and we can book things out. We’ll incorporate parents and grandparents to now come with us on trips, and we know they are going to have their own space versus two tiny hotel rooms. We can have our time together, yet privacy as well.”
After the release of the 2023 Once-in-a-Lifetime Journeys, “The cruise to Alaska caught our eye,” Kristin adds. “Boats and water are what we most want. We’d love to do a private yacht charter too. Our Ambassador is constantly checking in, asking what we need help with, and coordinating wish-list ideas. It’s so seamless and easy to get up and running. I have 12 wish lists already going, and we have trips planned through the end of this year, and next! We’re also excited to attend Member events, as you feel like you really are part of a special Club.”
THE CALL OF CABO
The Reimann’s To-Do List
LOCAL IN THE KNOW: Our house concierge, Flor, was phenomenal. She went out of her way at every turn to make sure we felt taken care. She had all of our dining reservations made ahead of time, along with transportation to and from. She was available to us at all hours of the day and was so kind and thoughtful!
FOODIE FIND: For dining in-residence, we loved ordering take out from the on- property Italian restaurant Las Estrellas. We topped the evening with a beautiful Esperanza s’mores kit at our private firepit. Another favorite was dining at Cocina Del Mar. We had our dinner sitting on the cliff, waves crashing during our final family vacation night.
TRIP HIGHLIGHT: We rented a private yacht for four hours one day. We went snorkeling, standup paddle boarding, and saw a ton of whales and sea turtles.
