Vivienne was prompt in her replies as well as providing the keys to the apartment as soon as we arrived. The apartment is located in a well maintained neighborhood and is clean. She was very considerate in readying the continental breakfast knowing the time we were leaving. I would recommend this place for people looking for a quiet secure place, a clean sufficient but small room and a friendly host.
Vivienne was so kind and welcoming. We were quite busy on our trip so we didn't actually spend much time here. The breakfast set out for us of fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal was perfect but on Saturday, Vivienne prepared a lovely vegetable fritata . It was a treat.
This was my third stay at Vivienne's great abode and I'm looking forward to returning. Viv is the consumate host. She offers a warm welcome, lovely rooms, amazing homemade breakfasts on the weekend, healthy breakfasts during the week, a beautiful view of ponds and trees and ducks, a great location for exploring Dana Point, San Celemente and environs. Ask any questions and Viv will fill you in with fun ideas of things to do. And if you're traveling for business or pleasure, this is the place to be.
