Local Romantic Getaway

If you live in Monterey County, you probably have not spent more than a night or two in a local hotel, inn or B&B. With the holidays approaching, this is a great time to pack an overnight bag and surprise your sweetie with a mid-week romantic getaway.

We know of over 30 hotels that are offering extra special value rates from November 1 - December 31 (sort of a locals rate). Package a room that is selling for 50+% off along with a romantic room design and you can enjoy a little relief from the hustle and bustle of the season.

We are offering a couple of new packages just for local Monterey County residents including a "Holiday Stress Relief" experience which includes discount offers from local spas, a shopping bag filled with area coupons, and some great in-room gift items to help you relax.

If you haven't found a gift for your significant other, you can always surprise them with a romantic vacation right in your own back yard. Chose a hotel and contact us about designing your own private romantic hideaway. Keep it a surprise and just show up to the hotel and check-in (you'll have to pack her bags for her). Enjoy a night out of dining and live music (yes, there is entertainment available on the Peninsula). Many of our designs include bath & body items and/or massage kits -- you may not want to leave the room after all!

Don't forget that our romantic, private bonfires are also available as we wind up our Indian Summer towards the end of this month.

Check out the details on our site at Romantic Room Designs or email us at for more details.

Time to Propose?

For those of you who are unmarried and in a relationship, is it finally time to propose? Take our test to find out:

• Does your girlfriend stop by every jewelry store at the mall and say, "That ring is really pretty"?
• When one of your friends gets engaged, does she give you the silent treatment?
• Does she keep repeating, "My parents really like you. They say that you're the son they never had"?
• At parties, does she introduce you as "This is my fiance -- oh, I mean my boyfriend..."?
• Have you been issued an ultimatum (e.g. If we are not engaged by Christmas, I'm moving on)?

Well, the holidays are almost here and it is the perfect time to "pop the question." You have probably heard of a bunch of ideas of creative ways to propose during Christmas Eve or during New Years. If you plan on making your way down to the Monterey Peninsula, give us a call (831-393-0445) and we will do our best to help you coordinate this special event. After all, the proposal story is one that will be told time and time again. Do it right, and you will love hearing it repeated. Do it wrong, and oh...well, there are always ear plugs or walking out of the room.
