This Resort Might Change The Way You Think About RV Parks

Opening April 1, the Costa Vista RV resort is no joke, offering a luxury twist on motor-home travel and setting the tone for an all-new Chula Vista bayfront.

The Sun Communities destination occupies 19 acres of upgraded tidelands at 825 E Street in the South Bay. The resort touts 197 traditional RV stalls and 49 townhome-style parked RVs for rent. Its calling card will likely be the pool deck that not only overlooks San Diego Bay, but resembles something you might find at the fanciest of family-friendly hotels. And prices — a basic, back-in site is currently renting for $109 per night, whereas the 399-square-foot cottage units start at $315 per night — are meant to be approachable to a variety of budget-conscious travelers.

COVID-19 regulations permitting, stays include unrestricted access to a host of amenities — no resort fee necessary.

The main recreation area, referred to as “The Commons,” includes a cafe and bar, pool, hot tub, splash pad, poolside movie screen, large fire pit, fitness center and arcade. Elsewhere on the property, guests can play basketball, bocce ball and horseshoes. Or they can leisurely take in the coastal ambience from each rental’s private patio or deck, as well as socialize in picnic and lounge areas located around the property.

Beyond offering top-tier amenities, Costa Vista comes with total connectivity, said Nate Philippsen, who is vice president of marketing for Sun Communities.

“With ethernet (service), streaming services, bluetooth-enabled vacation rentals, the large media display down at the pool, a sound system throughout the property; it’s really connected, which is what guests are looking for,” he said. “They want to get outdoors. They want to be with family and friends. But they want to stay connected at the same time.”

Costa Vista, a $55 million development that came with contributions to public infrastructure, represents a turning point for the broader Chula Vista bayfront, which is the 535-acre expanse perhaps best known for its long-gone power plant.
