About Vivien Feyer
Hello! We are Jeff and Viv. We fell in love in Point Richmond! Jeff came to Richmond in 1981 as the Chief of Cardiology at the Kaiser Richmond Medical Center. He also served as an elected city councilman from 2008-2012. Now, he is a Professor at Touro University teaching PA students cardiology and internal medicine. He loves the idea of introducing others to the wonders of the Point Richmond shoreline and community. Viv has been a psychologist, educator, avid world traveler, photographer, peace activist and small import business owner. Her love of the water brought her to Point Richmond years ago. She is the former chair of the City of Richmond's Human Rights Commission and remains active in community health and violence prevention efforts. Like Jeff, she relishes the idea of showcasing some of Pt. Richmond's amazing talent. Viv arranged for Asian art collector and dealer Guillermina Emy LaFever to furnish the retreat space with antique Asian furniture. It is a work of art. You can actually buy any of the furniture you like. There is a catalog in the unit and you can visit Guillermina's store in Point Richmond.
Vivien Feyer purchased this House in 2015
Why Vivien Feyer chose Point Richmond
We've managed to buy our dream home on a lovely pebble beach here on the SF Bay. It's a unique and special place and we feel blessed to be its guardians. Daily we are nourished by the sounds of the bay and the daily comings and goings of the coots, cormorants, pelicans, gulls and the occasional sea lion or harbor seal. We are told that the house was brought over from San Francisco on a barge in the very early 1900's and set in this spectacular location! We are veteran travelers, having explored much of the world - and have finally found a spot that holds true magic for us. Delighted now to be sharing it with others!
What makes this House unique
The beach, the view, the wildlife, the magical energy of the space - a true sanctuary for us, yet moments away from the people and places we adore in the larger bay area!!!

We really enjoyed every moment at this property, even though the weather didn’t cooperate fully. We had lots of fog but even with that the view from the living room and the deck was just amazing. I wish we could have spent more time at the house but we enjoyed the sights of San Francisco and its surroundings. Vivien was a very helpful hostess. We hope to return soon!
Beautiful place. Very peaceful
A huge thank you to our wonderful host Vivian for making our 10 day getaway from all the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. We've stayed at many places and this one I'm happy to say checks off all the boxes! The view and sounds of the waves crashing on the beach below can be heard 24 hours a day, the beds are so comfortable I had to ask who they were made by. This was our second stay here and we hope to be back next year. The kitchen and bathrooms are well stocked with supplies, a fresh bag of excellent ground coffee in the fridge, oils and spices in the pantry and a lovely assortment of teas. And she's always just a text or phone call away. By far the most responsive owners we've ever had the pleasure to meet. Stay here if you can (just not during the week we need please :-)
The view is incredible...the house - not so much.
The view from the deck of the house is absolutely spectacular! This MADE our trip! The description of the home is not clear though. It was much smaller than we were expecting and very close quarters for 6 people.
When we asked for a slightly early check-in we were told that this was unavailable because there were crews working at the house getting it ready for us. Needless to say when we arrived there were smelly, dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
My family was uncomfortable with Vivien (the owner) wanting to visit and spend time with us. We really just wanted to spend our time together - as we were coming from all over the country and don't see eachother often. All in all we had a wonderful vacation!!
Dear Nancy –
I want to apologize personally for having overlooked the dishes inside of the dishwasher. Oh my! We will make extra sure that this doesn’t happen in the future!!
As we discussed when you booked, the space is indeed snug for six people when each one is sleeping separately. Each of the three bedrooms has a comfortable queen sized bed, and there is a small foldout sofa in the living room. We can help with setting up additional air mattresses and screens, and with providing lots of pillows, blankets and linens, but the home does not have at all the kind of privacy that you would find with six separate hotel rooms.
We love to greet our guests upon arrival whenever possible, especially if they have special requests. Other than that, we’re available if you need us, but we never wish to intrude!,
We’re SO happy to hear how much you enjoyed the view and that your first experience with VRBO was a wonderful one!
Siblings San Fran Trip
Our stay at Vivien’s beautiful home was absolutely wonderful. Vivien was wonderful to work with and very helpful throughout our stay. Will definitely be back.
Thank you Vivien.
Beautiful and Relaxing
This property was extremely relaxing and quite beautiful. Sitting on the deck overnight the Bay was absolute stunning as you can see all three bridges from the deck. We were not familiar with the Point Richmond area however it is proximate to San Francisco and we would definitely stay here again while in SF. Vivien was an excellent host. We would highly recommend this quality property.
Right on the beach in charming Point Richmond, with a fascinating history and many special local attractions - convenient to San Francisco, Berkeley and Marin Country!
