Starting in 2013, the historic Rio Vista mansion was restored from a majestic private home into an inn with 12 luxurious suites. On Beach Hill, the elegant estate is just a five-minute walk from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
Most of the suites have views of the beach or the San Lorenzo River. Rooms are decorated with modern décor in plum, black and white against hard wood floors and zebra print rugs. Flat-screen TVs, microwaves and refrigerators are provided in all accommodations, and Wi-Fi is complimentary.
A continental breakfast is served in the lobby each morning followed by free refreshments and treats available all day. In addition to beaches and water activities like whale watching and surfing, the surrounding area includes landmarks like Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, UC Santa Cruz and Pasatiempo Golf Club.
