Kiva Dunes is a beautiful place to spend a relaxing vacation. We rented a home in the community (versus a condo which are also available) and absolutely loved it. It was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Although not directly on the beach, the ocean was only a short walk down the street. The Kiva private beach is incredible. The water is not as blue as Florida, but beautiful nonetheless. The sand is clean and almost white. Kiva does not have a "touristy" feel at all - it really felt like home. It was worth every penny.
The only downsides (if there are any) is that Kiva does not supply the beach area with any chairs, umbrellas or tents. You can rent these through a service or you need to supply your own. Also, Kiva is about 15 minutes from Gulf Shores so you are in for a drive if you plan to shop or eat out. There is a restaurant at the clubhouse, but we did not eat there. Teenagers might find the Kiva pace of life a little too slow, but for a young family like mine, it was pefect.
