Golf was great. The rental house was nice. The proximity to the beach was hell. Once you walk down the street and over one board walk and across another street there are several flights of stairs to take up and several flights of stairs to go down to another board walk and then hike out to the beach, exhausting.

Room, amenities, etc. are all decent. It's far away from the beach - definitely farther than their neighbors. So, no beach view. But most importantly, the people who run the place are completely inconsiderate. For whatever reason, they and their next door neighbors - "The Plantation" - are having some sort of tiff. Suddenly, and with no warning, they began... More

My family stayed there this month and it was such a great place. Nice and spacious. The decks were awesome! Location is great! It's in a gated community. 3 private pools. Access to the beach was right across the street from us. The area and beach was very clean. Water at the beach was great. We want to come back!

Purchased home @ Kiva Dunes because of its excellent location and it is a gated community. Beach is private and pristine. Kiva has many amenities, including golf, tennis and pools. Wonderful food and drinks at their grill and tiki bar. Vacation rentals are available through the Kiva Dunes website.

We took a girls trip to Kiva and stayed at the house, Hav'n A Ball. It had one of the community's pool and tennis court, practically in the back yard. It also has a golf court which made it easy for bringing the floats and ice chest to the beach! The house was very nice and with having several people... More

A group of us stayed at Havin' A Ball and it was wonderful! It is a great house with plenty of space for everyone! Short distance to a beautiful beach and it is directly in front of a pool so not far to travel at all! We liked how close it was to Fort Morgan also! Great place!!

We have stayed at the condos for approx 6 years in a row. They are great. Rooms are not large but ok. The common area is nice and the kitchen is well stocked. The view from the patio is excellent. The service provided by their staff is excellent. We have also used them to book our golf and it is... More

The condo was beautiful, cozy and very spacious! I also enjoyed the fact that it's within walking distance to the beach. The outside shower was pretty cool as well. I would recommend this condo not only because of its looks, but for the amenities too.

This was a great place to stay! It had a lot of amenities and a lot to do. We traveled up to Fort Morgan which is like 2 miles from the area and it was a great time! Far enough from town to avoid the touristy stuff but not too far away so you can still go into town!

I recently stayed in a condo , it was amazing. Everything was so nice and it made me feel at home. I love that it had a golf cart where we could drive around Kiva Dunes and to the beach. It was great I would totally recommend.
