We enjoyed our stay at the Rio Villa. Our balcony unit was clean and comfortable. The lawn and river front are the perfect place to watch the birds, fish, and kayakers go by. We appreciated being able to take our pet. The adjacent highway can be busy, so I would recommend getting a room away from the road. We hope... More

Nothing fancy. Basic look of the 50s, but relaxing place with nice patio area, and fire pit. I would not call it a "beach", but there is room to get a kayak, or canoe to water. Picture of river is accurate. Beware of Google or maps directions, but the drive, from any direction is full of sights.

A throwback to an earlier time. And we loved it. These are small side-by-side cottages that are comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The property is gorgeous and fun to explore. There are lots of great local activities and the Russian River Valley is amazing. Although the cottages are nicely decorated and clean, the experience may not be for everyone. For those... More

Our unit reeked of disinfectant for hours, it didn't dissipate until the next day. The 2' x 2' shower stall had moldy grout. The walls are thin, you can hear conversation next door. We left the door hanger out for maid service, but our room wasn't touched. The decor is very old, even stray nails dotted the walls. The effort... More

The grounds at this place are amazing! Take a book and a bottle of wine and enjoy the beautiful view. The manager of the property (Karen) is also very helpful. Breakfast was good and location is awesome. We had room #11 on the ground floor. Another tip especially with kids take a smores kit for the outdoor fireplace. We can’t... More

This little "resort" between the main road and the river is pretty small, but has a great garden, picnic area, outdoor BBQ, and access to the river. The rooms definitely need upgrading. The vegetation is so thick, that our so-called river view room did not have a river view at all. But the grounds are nice and we enjoyed the... More

With many wedding guests traveling from afar, our daughter announced that for their wedding she and her fiance wanted a casual place that we could "commandeer" for a whole weekend. A place that had lodging, ceremony, reception and rehearsal dinner space. REALLY?? After a great deal of research we discovered Rio Villa Beach Resort and it could not have been... More

We were travelling with a grown-up daughter and needed two rooms so this place fitted the bill. Our room ( #10) had a cabin-style front porch and a balcony overlooking the grounds and river. There wee plenty of places to sit and read/relax in the peaceful 'resort' grounds too.x The cabin was comfortable, nicely decorated and well maintained and the... More

We did a last minute getaway from San Francisco for just one night. On arrival, we explored the gardens which were well kept, yet peaceful. My son had a ball exploring all the nooks and crannies of the beach house, and the different paths. Our balcony overlooked the river, and we spent a beautiful evening sipping wine under the moonlight,... More
