Welcome to our family retreat! We look forward to sharing the profound serenity and fresh air at this beach house with views of both the gulf and Mobile Bay. Share in the magic of our house that many of our previous guests have written about in our guest book. The sound of waves will lull you to sleep at night. The sun will rejuvenate you during the day. Our home is bright and roomy with a perfect angle for maximum views of the beach and ocean.
We are tucked away near the end of the Fort Morgan peninsula, away from the endless crowds. We have a large duplex home of over 3,500 sq. feet, with a drive under carport, elevator and four floors.

A magical story of how two strangers at the time, Jim 'Scrappy' Edgemon and Jerry Pate (Winner of 1974 U.S. Amateur and the 1976 U.S. Open) met. Later, with a handshake and a smile, the two partnered up making Kiva Dunes one of the Southeast's finest golf courses.
