Great escape...the property is beautiful, quiet, and away from the crowds. Golf course is challenging but fun! It is in great shape. Accommodations are very nice. The kitchen is only stocked with the bare necessities. There needs to be more bowls, cookware, etc.

Little Heaven was the perfect size for our family. The heated pool was right across the street and the beach is a 5 minute walk. The House did have multiple cameras set up, so we felt like we were being “watched”. It would have been...More

Hi there! If you rent in the house community you will be closer to the beach. The Lodge and Village boarder the golf course. Kiva Dunes has a shuttle service that you can call to schedule a pick up.
