PLEASE KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR PAYMENT BY WIRE TRANSFER.

Welcome to Kiva Grand!

Sorry, but we keep getting these questions about Kiva Grand so we'll just get them out of the way--NO Weddings and while it is a very large home, we make NO Exceptions to our Maximum of 22 Guests, and NO Exceptions to our Minimum Rental Age.

New 8th bedroom. We have taken a room previously locked off for the owners and made it a bunk room that sleeps 3. We have also added a sleeper sofa to the media room. You've told us you need something for a little bigger group and with a house this big, and a pool this big, we can make that happen!

Kiva Grand is a Beautiful Beachfront Custom Family Home (it is not a duplex!) on a 2 acre gulf front Kiva Dunes lot. It was designed for Luxury Family Living. Although the views and surroundings are indeed quite grand, comforts like a Really Big Kitchen, a Huge Pool Level Family Room with a 2nd Kitchen, a 20'x40' Gunite Pool & More were built with family gatherings in mind.

The Best of Gulf & Golf! Kiva Grand is a wonderful Vacation Rental House for gathering family & friends. 7 Spacious Bedrooms, each with Private Bath & TV. 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. Starting in 2012 this is where 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.

Located within minutes of historic Fort Morgan

    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.

    a guest from richardson, TX recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    This home is pure luxury. It is beautiful, huge, well laid out, very clean, million dollar ocean views, two kitchens, and right on the beach. Any maintenance issues are quickly resolved. I can't wait to spend another week there.

    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.

    Martha C from Brandon, MS recommends this vacation rental

    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

    a guest from Glen Gardner, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    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....
