I have wonderful memories of the Vivianna! Their rooms were so nice and spacious! What a pity it fell victim (like so many others of these great places)to greedy developers to build those awful, ostentatious beach palaces you see today. Some call it progress; I call it exploitation.
Or did they just make it possible for more of U folks to share in the "OBX" experience ??
I was going to the obx long before these tacky big beach palaces were built and I stayed in a number of these delightful mom & pop motels! I don't stay in those tacky homes now and never will. . .
