“Great location .. Needs TLC”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

Our group of 10 (from Texas & California) stayed here for the week. It was our Cali family's first time in Alabama and Liv's the beach but not the heat! We loved the easy access to the beach right across the street! There was plenty of room for everyone and the kids loved the room on the bottom floor. The one thing we noticed was the house is not very well cleaned by the cleaning crew. We found dirty band aids in one bedroom, the bottom floor bathroom was not cleaned and All of the carpet runners are heavily stained. Overall it's a great house just needs some updating and TLC.

Response from the owner Thanks for alerting us. These issues have been addressed. I wish you had let me, or Kiva Dunes maintenance know this upon your arrival, as we could have addressed it your first day, rather than after your stay.

“Total relaxation!”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2011

Our family loved the stay. The house is roomy and well laid out with great views from the top floor of the beach and the golf course. The home is very convenient to the beach and the pools are just a short walk or ride away. The beach is beautiful and we weren't covered up with others all around us. The location is more secluded but it is only a short drive to restaurants and activities. We feel like it is the best of both worlds!

“So much, so close, so beautiful.”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2011

Given this property's location and beauty, the only downside is needing to make choices. A beautiful long ocean beach is right across the street, the golf course is in the backyard, the swimming pool is down the street, Mobile Bay is 500 yards out the back yard, and wildlife preserves are nearby. Runners and cyclists appreciate the relative calm, but the hospitality of Gulf Shores is a short car ride away. With large covered porches and top-floor kitchen, family room, laundry/pantry, and den the views are great, regardless of the weather. The elevator makes all floor access easy for anyone. The mid-floor contains multiple bedrooms and baths, while the lower floor has a great dorm-style room for kids! The house easily fits larger families, and the area provides so many great recreational and leisure choices, that multiple visits are required to sample all of them.

“An Ocean Oasis”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2011

I have stayed at this beautiful beach house several times, and have found it to be a wonderful stay every time. The house is beautifully designed and decorated, and has gorgeous views of the ocean from the entire first floor and some of the second floor as well. Additionally, it has a great kids room on the first floor which is tiled so that you don't track all that sand into the house. The rooms are lovely, the kitchen is fully stocked for cooking of any kind, and there is room for everyone to have space and not be too tightly packed together. There is also an elevator for getting the groceries up to the third floor kitchen or to help less-abled guests. The location is also fantastic- beautiful beach just a tiny walk over the dunes away (2 minutes, really), and you're far enough away from the main of Gulf Shores that you get a lovely piece of beach all to yourself.

“Fantastic location with great beach and golf”

Reviewed 10 Dec 2011

The house is in a great location with lots of privacy in a beautiful gated community; it has a great layout and phenomenal views of the Gulf. White sand beach is absolutely beautiful. The golf course is breathtaking - challenging but lots of fun. Historic Ft Morgan is right down the road - a great side-trip. My daughter challenged me to a bungi jump at Guf Shores => another great bucket list item... LuLu's Restaurant in Gulf Shores is tons of fun. Can't wait to go back.

“A great destination.”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2011

My family (all five of us) have had the good fortune to stay in the house on multiple occasions. Each visit has been thoroughly enjoyable. The house affords plenty of room for us all, plus extended family members and friends. The floor plan works well as it provides a comfortable balance between privacy and family gatherings. Its location is well situated as it is within close walking distances to the beach, pools, tennis courts and golf course. The views from the balconies toward the Gulf, the golf course and westward for sunsets are spectacular. It has become one of our favorite vacation spots.

“Paradise on Earth”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2011

My golf group was greated at the Kiva Lodge and Clubhouse by Kerri and the Kiva staff who had all our information and keys,it took less than 5 minutes to be on our way to the house, aptly named the Sand Castle. Unlike most beach houses that waste the top floor as bedrooms, this house has used the top floor as the entertainment and living area. Dominated by great views of both the beach and the golf course, the third floor has a beautiful wide open kitchen, family room and den. Our group lived on this floor, playing cards, sitting on the swinging chairs, playing chess and checkers on the kid friendly set in the living room and eating great seafood cooked in the open kitchen. The bedrooms are comfortable, and being on seperate floors from the living area, made putting tired kids and adults to bed easy. The big tub in the master was a hit. The house is right across the street from the walkway to the beach. This made it easy to grab another cooler whenever it was required. When we finished at the beach we walked to the pool and enjoyed a refreshing swim and made lunches at the pool bar. We also managed to sneak in a couple rounds of golf and when one of our party was having a bad round, he just got off the cart in the back yard of the house on #14, sat on the porch and waited for us to finish. We also got to do some inshore fishing in the bay directly across the street from the entrance to Kiva Dunes. In a small 22 foot boat, we motored out about 2 miles to Shellbank Reef and caught plenty of speckled trout for dinner. It was a great week of golf, fishing and just hanging out. Low key and uncrowded. This was a perfect getaway from reality. Definately Paradise on Earth
