This was my fourth stay at Vivienne's and it was as pleasant as my previous visits. My trips to Dana Point have been for work-related purposes, but Viv's welcoming demeanor and comfortable lodging have made my time there feel like a vacation.
vivienne welcomed us into her home with a smile despite our late arrival. she is warm and friendly, and her house is lovely, clean and comfortable. it was exactly what we needed after 27 hours of travel!
very highly recommend for anyone visiting that area!
This lovely B and B was perfect fort stay in Dana Point. The location could not be more accessible . I was on business and Vivienne was thoughtful about all aspects of my stay. Her property is quiet and the room is peaceful .

Area was easy to get to in regards to where I was going.
Vivienne's place is in a beautiful neighborhood. It is perfect for walking and running. We enjoyed going to the beach and had a great time in San Juan Capistrano, which is not far. The room was comfortable and Vivienne is a great host.
