Whether you’re jetting across the pond or taking a staycation, San Diego’s breathtaking sunset and year-round sunshine sets the scene for a romantic seaside marriage proposal. Below are some of our favorite ideas for popping the question in America’s Finest City.

For guests staying at one of Monarch Luxury Villas’ La Jolla rentals, plan a perfect proposal on the sand at La Jolla Shores through our in-house concierge. A private beach bonfire complete with s’mores, chocolate covered strawberries, cozy blankets and sparkling cider can be arranged for a picturesque proposal as the sun goes down. And don’t forget a professional beach photographer to capture the occasion!

Departing a short distance from the cozy hideaway Seashore Studio, soar above San Diego’s coastline in your very own hot air balloon. Pop the question as you pop champagne aboard your private sunset hot air balloon ride.


For guests staying at Buccaneer Way, experience Italian-style romance as you explore the Coronado Cays on a gondola ride. Or pack up for a picnic in Balboa Park’s rose garden where a custom picnic can be arranged in the historic and Instagram-worthy setting.


For couples on the more adventurous side, set out to sea for a snorkeling or diving expedition where you can propose under the sea.


Whether you’re looking for an elaborate estate fit for royals or a romantic coastal casita, Monarch Luxury Villas has a perfect vacation rental for your special occasion. To book your stay in San Diego, email reservations@monarchluxuryvillas.com.
