Kiva Grand, an 8700 sq ft home on a 2 acre beachfront lot at Kiva Dunes

Kiva Grand is a Beautiful Beachfront Custom Family Home on a 2 acre gulf front Kiva Dunes lot. Although the views and surroundings are indeed quite grand, it was built with family gatherings in mind with comforts like a really big kitchen, a huge pool level family room with a 2nd kitchen, a 20'x40' beachfront pool and a hot tub for enjoying the outdoors even when it is a bit cooler outside.

The Best of Gulf & Golf! Kiva Grand is located at the acclaimed Kiva Dunes Golf & Beach Resort. Seven Spacious Bedrooms, each with Private Bath & TV, plus a bunk room. Large open kitchen with 2 islands, room for lots of cooks and for everyone to eat in the same space. Huge recreation room opens to the pool area and offers a second kitchen, another large television surrounded by plenty of seating and more. Private beach side gunite pool. Large covered porches on all three levels of the house. And of course the fabulous sugar-white beach that lies beyond the 8,700+ of heated and cooled space!

On the main floor you'll find an expansive open living area that includes a main seating area, a fireside sitting room, space for everyone to dine together, a kitchen with an over sized refrigerator, two islands for cooking and serving, two dishwashers, and room for plenty of cooks. You'll have all of the dishes and serving pieces you need to live graciously during your stay. There is also a family room with a 73' television, a half bath, and a king bedroom with a private bath. You will also find the bunk room with its charming nautical decor. The family room has a sleeper sofa. It has a large closet for your clothes, and doors so that it can be shut off for privacy.

The upstairs features six bedrooms, each with a private bath, and the smaller of the two laundries. The spacious Beach front King Master Bedroom opens to both a private and a shared porch. It's bath has a steam shower with multiple shower heads at an array of heights, a jetted tub and a double vanity. A second beach front King Bedroom opens to the broad shared terrace, as does a beach front Queen Bedroom. There is a bedroom with a pair of double beds, a bedroom with one queen bed, and another bedroom with a pair of double beds.

Below the main floor, at the same level as the pool, there is a recreation room complete with another large television and lots of seating, and a second full kitchen and smaller informal dining area. You'll also find a full bath (convenient given the pool) and the larger of the two laundries. This level also opens to the garage where you will have 3 covered parking spaces. This family-friendly space has multiple French doors that open to the covered porches on the east and north sides of the pool area. It is rare to find a pool area that offers spacious areas for both sun and shade but Kiva Grand has it!

You can reach all three levels of the house by both front and back stairs, as well as the elevator which is wonderful for grandparents, groceries and luggage.

Enjoy the feeling of being away from it all, then pop over to the Kiva Dunes Lodge for lunch, visit the nearby Beach Club for dinner or for a message at the spa. Watch dolphins from the porch or see who can find the best shells on the beach. Yes, you can settle in with your chairs and tents on the beach and leave them there until it is time to go home.

Come see why so many of our guests return to Kiva Grand year after year after year!

    Our family of 12 just returned from a beautiful week at this beautiful mansion and enjoyed every minute. The management company quickly responded to our request and we were comfortable and happy. The house was more beautiful than described and well appointed. I highly recommend a week at this resort type mansion.

    Kim E from Malden, MA recommends this vacation rental

    It is a wonderful location and home. It met or exceeded our expectations in nearly every aspect. We held a regional sales meeting with just 7 people at the house and it huge and provided more space than we even needed. There were a couple of very minor issues, door handle on a patio door falling off, but they didn't detract for a great experience. My only comment would be that that house needs a nice gas grill versus what is offered today. We would not hesitate to return again

    Wade O from Louisville, KY recommends this vacation rental

    I would like to be able to take some credit for the planning of the most memorable vacation that our family has ever taken. However this credit has to go to my wife "Michelle"! She found the perfect getaway! The house was incredible! The memories made unforgettable! The family time together irreplaceable! Our family is a very busy family and very seldom have the opportunity to spend a week together. This was the perfect private location with all the accommodations to make very special memories. The dolphins that frequently visited us was icing on the cake! The house was large enough that we never felt crowded in any way! The kitchen was very well equipped! The views from the balconies where breath taking! We simply didn't want to leave! We can not wait to return. The property management team was very professional and accommodating. The name of this property describes it very well - GRAND!

    thomas h from Greenville, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We had our first family vacation during the week of 8/17/2014. The home was exactly as described. The location was approx. 1/2 hrs from the main area of gulf shores, not a big deal. It was just as the pictures show. Having the boardwalk from the home to the ocean was great. The kids would go down to the beach, then to the outside shower to wash off the sand, then into the outstanding pool. We had 7 adults, and 9 grand kids. More than enough space for everyone. A couple of little problems did come up, but were taken care of right away. Great communication with the management staff. Home was clean when we arrived, and all they ask you to do when leaving is leave it as you found it. Plenty of toys for the kids, both play and pool/beach items. The ice machine worked wonderful. When we plan another family vacation we would come back. Grand kids and most of the adults didn't want to leave. They are building another home next door, but it wasn't that big of a deal. Kiva Grand thanks for a great family vacation!
    Went to LuLu's twice, Bahama Bob's, and Hazel's Kitchen, the seafood was wonderful.

    Michael C from Texarkana, AR recommends this vacation rental

    The home was better than we could imagine. The new boardwalk made walking to the beach a breeze. Three great media areas/rooms gave our family plenty of space. Every part of the property was very clean and inviting. The property management team were very helpful and provided assistance at every opportunity. We have already booked for next year and recommended the home to friends. Time on the "almost private" beach, lounging around the pool and playing golf at Kiva Dunes and the Peninsula Club were our major activities.
    Our fishing trip from the marina at Fort Morgan (8 min away) with Capt. Rick of Alabama Girl Charters was a definite treat. We limited on 15-20 lb Redfish on the Dixie Bar! This was our fifth year to vacation on the gulf and Kiva Grand is the best by far!!

    This is a SUPER house for large family gatherings. Our only disappointment was a lack of sufficient kitchen towels for a house where so much prepping and cooking was being done. We could find only 3 towels in the kitchen. We'll be back in 2015!!!!

    Robert P from Dallas, TX recommends this vacation rental

    It's a great house for a family vacation and we have stayed there before. However, this time the house was not completely clean and my daughter had to clean her bathroom before she could use it.
    The pool and spa were not clean when we arrived and we could not use them until a day after we arrived.
    The wifi was not working and was not repaired while we were there. Very inconvenient.

    There was no house phone, but we had a lot of cell phones so that was a minor problem.

    The owner was very responsive to any problem we encountered but not all the problems were solved while we were there.

    • Manager Responded on 9/2/2014

      Please, please, please let us know when things need to be done. It sounds like the housekeeper missed a bathroom and would absolutely have come back to fix it. We missed checking the house before the guests arrived because we got stuck in holiday weekend traffic and they arrived before we could get there. In this case, we knew about the pool first thing that morning and our pool man worked on it most of the day. It was not at all that it had not been cleaned. In Summer the pool man comes on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. The previous guests' children had poured at least one huge container of bubbles into the pool & spa and left plastic bottles and toys blocking the skimmer. With 20+ people swimming in it and July heat, that can & did cause an algae bloom between when the pool was checked on Thursday, and when it was checked again on Sunday morning. It had to be "shocked". So it definitely had been cleaned (and cleaned and cleaned and cleaned throughout that day), but due to the previous guests, was not usable from the 4 pm check-in time until the next morning. Luckily the house is beachfront and there are 2 neighborhood pools. The wifi was a service provider issue that our techs could not resolve. Many issues they can fix quickly, but sometimes Mediacom has to come and they never come quickly.

    The home is perfect for larger family vacations. Even with 20+ people in the house, there was still plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and amenities. I would highly recommend this property, and hope that our family can return to enjoy it another time.

    Pat S from The Woodlands, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We are a large family - one set of grandparents, 3 children with spouses and 13 grandchildren ranging from age 2 to 16 (21 in all). This is the perfect house for a large family. With 8 bedrooms the children could gather with their cousins in their rooms or together in the large living area. The dining room table in the photo is not the same one at the house. This one is massive and wonderful - think it seats 16 people. There are also 6 stools in the kitchen area at the counter for people to eat. The kitchen is better equipped than my home. Having 2 dishwashers (in the main kitchen) and 2 refrigerators was a bonus (one refrigerator in the main kitchen upstairs and another one in the second kitchen downstairs). There are also 2 washing machines and 2 dryers. Some people who reviewed the house last year made mention that beach access would be nice. Well, there is now a great boardwalk from the house to the beach. You will also find a new shower area outside to rinse off the sand. The pool man is a source of much information if you have any questions about the area. He is discreet about coming to check on the pool in the mornings. Most reviewers said that the photos do not do the house justice and I would have to agree. You are just going to have to rent the house to see what it is like. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. We had a wonderful family get together and would certainly go back again.

    There were a few maintenance issues. The ice makers did not work at all. Some were distressed that the WiFi was not working. The coffee pot was not functional. In Prior years, there had been several good coffee makers. This year there was one Mr. Coffee that took over 30 minutes to make. There was a smoke detector that had a low battery, we called and no one came to service it. Other than minor items it is a great place

    We had a wonderful time at Kiva Grand. The house was absolutely beautiful and the owners/managers were responsive to our few minor problems. There were 13 of us in our party and there was room to spare. The pool was perfect, large enough for all of us to splash around and there were a lot of toys for the kids to play with. Although the walk to the beach was a little challenging for a few of us the beach was beautiful and there were very few people on the beach with us. Everyone was very happy with the house, the pictures just don't do it justice! Thank you for a perfect family trip!!

    Ronald E from Valparaiso, IN recommends this vacation rental

    What an awesome 45th Wedding Anniversary celebration our Indiana family enjoyed at Kiva Grand. The breakfast bar was long enough for our six little ones to eat their meals. It was beneficial to have the shaded area near the pool - Beneficial for the children and the adults who used the area for their corn-hole tournaments.
    Having a washer and dryer on the ground level and third level was so convenient - everyone took home clean clothes! This home is beyond words - it was truly a location that we only wish we could visit on a yearly basis....
