Thanksgiving Dinner Delivered In: When you’re on vacation, the last thing you want to worry about is navigating a new grocery store or spending Thanksgiving morning meal prepping.

During this beach bash, your personal attendant will serve a fall-inspired dinner on the sand. Fireside s’mores for desert and a pumpkin cornhole game will get you in the Thanksgiving spirit. The all-inclusive event comes with a table, tent, chairs and decor.

Thanksgiving with a Chef: For a truly luxurious holiday experience, enjoy a gourmet Thanksgiving dinner prepared by a private chef. He’ll work with you to customize a menu, and will take care of the shopping, cooking and clean-up. *Kindly note, advance booking is highly recommended.

Fall Winery Experience: Choose from one of San Diego’s nearby wine regions – Temecula Valley, Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe, or Ramona – for a leisurely fall day in the vineyards. Your private chauffeur will pick you and your guests up from your Monarch rental and escort you to 3 or 4 vineyards before returning home. The experience includes all tastings, one behind-the-scenes vineyard tour, and a custom picnic lunch.
