Very comfortable Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice and convenient to the pool and beach. It was perfect and cozy. We had an issue with ants throughout the house. When raising the blinds In the bedroom upstairs, the cover fell off, I did not attempt to put it back for fear of breaking it. Otherwise everything was was very pleasant. Thank you.

Great property and gated community.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage. The pictures really don't do it justice. It was small, but just perfect for our family of 3 and SUPER clean. We enjoyed the beautiful upstairs porch over looking the golf course, the white sand beach, the pool, and taking walks in the evening. We saw a lot of wildlife! We also appreciated the available beach chairs, floats and toys. I'd absolutely recommend this to friends and family and we hope to return ourselves.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

After some trouble coming in late in the rain, this quick vacation was perfect. While not on the beach, the walk from the cottage is very quick and easy...just a couple of minutes. Just 1 house over from the pool. Kiva Dunes is separate from the hustle and bustle and crowded beaches of Gulf Shores, which we loved. Private and quiet beach. The cottage was perfect for our family of four. The kids loved the outdoor shower. The owners were very accommodating. A truly relaxing weekend!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week at this cottage! The location is perfect. We enjoyed the beach and community pool. My husband loved golfing as well. Our two younger children were so happy to share a room with a TV. The owner's were wonderful to work with. I couldn't say enough nice things about them and the cottage itself. We will be back!
