About the property

Enchanting Cottage in the Unrivaled Kiva Dunes Golf and Seaside Community.

Feel the warmth of the sun, the sand beneath your toes and the smell of suntan oil as you spend some lazy days in this picturesque cottage. Located in the magnificent golf and seaside community Kiva Dunes, this sun kissed house has everything you are looking for. With two bedrooms and two baths, this humble beach abode sleeps 4 comfortably. There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom and two twins in the second bedroom. Wood floors, ceiling fans for that 'southern comfort' feeling.

The kitchen is fully equipped for your culinary needs and will inspire you to sip ice tea and eat boiled shrimp out on the airy porches. After an evening out under the stars, come in and enjoy a movie on cable TV, or VCR, DVD, or your favorite music on the FM/CD player. We also have playing cards, board games, and a small VCR/DVD library of films. Free Wi-Fi.

What to Do:: A nearby walkway leads you over the white dunes and sea oats to the cool surf where sand crabs scurry about. Delight in chartered fishing excursions, championship golf, nature walks, outlet shopping, amusement parks, wonderful restaurants, on site tennis, or swimming in any of the three private community pools or relax at nearby day spa.

Okay but uncompfortable

  • 2 of 5

While this house has a decent location - close to the pool and boardwalk - there are some real inconveniences that would keep us from ever staying here again. There are no closets in which to hang clothes, merely hooks located on the bedroom walls. The shower door in the master was broken. There was huge potential to get locked into the outdoor shower with no was to get to the outside or back into the house. The TVs were quite small. The kitchen was not well stocked and very disorganized. You have to climb on a stool to reach your dishes and glasses. A couple of the patio chairs were so rickity we were afraid to sit in them. Have stayed in nicer places at Kiva Dunes for sure.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was as relaxing and peaceful as I was hoping!! The pool and beach were easily accessible from the cottage. Unfortunately, we did not leave the community for any outings. We enjoyed going from the pool, to the beach and back to the pool during our stay. The house was well equipped with everything needed to make dinner, lunch, and breakfast.

I will be returning to this cottage in the future and will recommend this place to friends.

This was a perfect place for just me! I had a friend come down for a few days and it was an easy walk to the beach. Also the private outdoor shower was awesome! I'll be back for sure!

Great Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an great time, the owners were friendly and easy to deal with from the get-go. The cottage was adorable and perfect for our little family of 3, but it would work great for 4 as well. The house was super clean and comfortable. The outdoor space had great views and were perfect for relaxing, the outdoor shower off the master bath was so cool. One of the 3 pools in the complex was two houses away, and the lovely private beach was about a half a block away over two beautiful walkways over the dunes. We loved it. We started the day and ended the evenings at the beach. Just a great all around experience. We are already planning a return trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you and we are glad you had fun. After a few stays with us, we are sure you will feel as we do, that this is your second home. Always glad to have the military stay with us. Thank you for your service. Remind us next year about your double discount (returning/military) when you come back!
