News FLASH! Vacation Package added to Live Auction!

No comments

Pssssssttt! Here’s a Sneak Peak into our very latest addition to our live auction line up!

If you are looking for an incredible vacation getaway for your family and friends, this La Costa #1 Resort & Spa in Southern California might just be what you’ve been waiting for.


While San Diego offers fun attractions such as the Gaslamp Quarter, the world-famous San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, SeaWorld, Seaport Village, and Balboa Park, there is so much more to experience beyond the downtown area. Bring the entire family to Legoland, tour local wineries, visit the Del Mar race track, enjoy shopping at nearby outlet malls, and soak up the sun at the Oceanside Pier and miles of northern coastline. Conveniently located just minutes from shopping, dining, and San Diego sightseeing tours, La Costa Resort and Spa is an ideal travel destination.

Perfect for a couple of families or 4 couples for an adult weekend escape in luxury and relaxation. With this package you get a 3-Night Luxury Stay in a 2,500 sq. ft. 3-Bedroom Villa for up to 8 with $500 La Costa Gift Card. Use the $500 gift card towards golf, spa treatments, dining or retail purchases and take advantage of all this resort offers. Your spacious luxury villa includes three master suites each with a private balcony, two of which overlook the resort’s pool (each master suite is available as its own lock off area); fireplaces in every room; cast-iron steeping tub and separate shower with stone surroundings; gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances; flat-screen plasma TV in every living area and bedroom; designer furnishings and distinctive artwork; high-speed Internet; and lush exterior landscaping with garden and ocean scenery.

Perfect for a couple of families or 4 couples for an adult weekend escape in luxury and relaxation.

The resort’s centerpiece is its world-famous 26,000-square-foot spa, recently named the #1 resort spa in southern California by Spa Magazine, and #4 spa in North America by Travel+Leisure. From the thundering Roman waterfall to a tranquil 15,000 square-foot outdoor courtyard, this is the ideal place to heal, recharge and reconnect. The two PGA Championship 18-hole golf courses are stunning in beauty and challenge a golfer’s shot-making ability, off the tee and around the greens. Additionally, the resort offers 17 hard and clay tennis courts; an 8,000 sq. ft. fitness center; seven pools, some with “Splash Landing” waterslides; plus many more recreational amenities for guests of all ages — a true multi-generational experience!

So call all your closest friends and families and start planning your next vacation. This could be the start of a new tradition.
