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 for 2012--an 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, Gulf Shores Marina and Peninsula Golf Course, Kiva Grand is about 20 minutes west of Gulf Shores and its larger array of restaurants, shops and attractions ranging from Waterville USA water park to the Tanger Outlet Center.
While Kiva Grand, nestled within the coastal Kiva Dunes golf resort was built to be a private family home, we are happy to be able to share it as a vacation rental 'home away from home' for your family!
Sorry, Kiva Grand is NOT available for weddings.

What a wonderful, spacious, well equipt house. Property managers Geoff & Susan were honest, fair, and intent to make this a perfect vacation for all 15 of us. The master kitchen (yes, there are more than one) was a perfect gathering spot and had every imaginable gadget & utensile. Every balcony offered a spectacular view of the gulf. The house is so big that it took us a few days to discover the multiple stairways between the floor levels. You will not be disappointed!

We had a great stay at Kiva Grand. The locations was wonderful. The pool and hot tub were definitely a kids favorite. The walk to the beach wasn't too bad. The stretch of beach in front of the house is secluded, no one but the guests for several hundred feet. The house was amazing for our big group. The kids loved all the space and played in every area. There was even a piano. Every bedroom except the bunk has a bathroom. And the master shower was a plus. Lots of toys in the downstairs closet we discovered the day it rained all day! Would definitely recommend it and hope to return!!

My family just spent the past week at Kiva Grand. Grand is a perfect description. We had a wonderful stay at a beautiful home with all the amenities one could possibly desire. Plenty of room for a large family. The most wonderful kitchen with plenty of utinsels, plates and pots and pans. Comfortable beds, and thick ,fluffy towels in all of the 7 bathrooms. A beautiful, well maintained pool. I cannot mention enough positives about the home and Resort Vacation Properties. Susan and Geoff were the best of the best!! Thank you so much from the entire family.

WOW!!!! The pictures of this home do not do it justice. This home is beautiful and comfortable. Plenty of room and plenty of privacy too. The pool area is amazing too! Every balcony has a nice breeze especially the covered terrace on the bottom level. The elevator is a big plus for unloading and loading the vehicles and groceries and for the family members with knee problems. The Wi-Fi service served the entire house.The kitchen is fully stocked with beautiful serving pieces as well as functional cooking pots and pans and any utensil needed. Once we arrived we had no desire to leave the grounds. Everything that is listed in the description was accurate plus some. The only addition that I think would benefit this property would be a direct beach access, but the walk to the board walk wasn't so bad. The pool man made a visit every morning to check on and clean the pool. He was very friendly and informative. We loved how the little sand crabs made their appearance at night on and around the pool area. A few even joined family members for a nice dip in the pool. The views were spectacular from every are of the house. The south views were the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the north views were of the beautiful Kiva Dunes golf course. The house is very private since the lot it sits on is large and a good distance from other homes and condos. Overall this place is wonderful and a vacationers dream. The drive out to the house seems alittle far at first but once you get there the peace and quiet is well worth the drive. I would recommend this property to anyone that just wants to get away from it all and relax.

What a wonderful trip! The house is just beautiful, clean and plenty of room for everyone. The elevator was a blessing for our parents. Well stocked with anything we needed in kitchen. Everyone loved the pool and spa. The kids rarely changed out of their bathing suits. What a view from spa and every balcony. We were amazed at the amount of dolphins swimming right in front of the house. The beach was perfect with crystal clear water and beautiful sand. Thanks a bunch. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

We booked Kiva Grand for our annual family get together, Ages 70 thru 11 months. The property was spectacular. The bedrooms spacious and comfortable, the pool area and decks were relaxing and hours were spent there. There was plenty of room for everyone to dine together, and spread out and do their own thing as well. The air conditioning kept the house nice and cool despite very warm days. Everything was perfect, the only possible improvement would be private access to the beach, this would save a few steps. We hope to be back again next year.

Great place to stay
Great place to stay
What a great place to stay! We were blessed to spend a week in July at this beautiful location. What a house! We had ten family members, four of which were kids five and under. This is the MOST spacious home we have ever stayed in! The location is superb, right on the Gulf Coast. The entrance to the beach is down a few hundred yards or so, but we spent the great majority of our time right at the pool. We concur with a previous review, the planters should be replanted and new pool furniture should be purchased. The empty/dead planters are an eyesore as you enjoy this great pool. The home is beautiful and we spent the dinner hour on several nights "home" either grilling or preparing our evening meals. The kids loved breakfast at the "bar" each morning. We brought MANY toys for our "Little Ones" but the house had a great variety of kids toys and pool toys for us to play with. Anyway, It's a beautiful and great place to stay!

Owner response: We think you'll be very pleased with the pool area now! It has beautiful new furniture. No one wanted to have the pool area dug up to work on the sprinklers during their stay so that had to wait until the off-season:)
Our family just returned home from a "grand" week! The house was amazing, the view was spectacular from all balconies, the master suite was bigger than huge, the kitchens were perfect for our family with many adults, and the pool area had lots of shade from the hot summer sun! We especially enjoyed the large living spaces which allowed our 4 grandchildren multiple places to play. Our only disappointment was the condition of the pool area, specifically the worn out pool furniture, the dead potted plants, the weeds growing between the paving stones, and the broken pool lights. With a little attention to these, the house would have been perfect! And I wish we'd have found the pool umbrellas in the garage sooner. The men enjoyed golfing at the Kiva Dunes course, but found Peninsula Golf Course just down the road even nicer. We went into Gulf Shores one night and enjoyed dinner at Tacky Jack's (the wait at Lulu's was 2 hours so ended up there instead). Afterward the little ones had a great time at The Track Family Rec Center. Our memories from Kiva Grand will always be special!

Owner response: We hope you'll call if you have any problems during your stay. A flip of a breaker took care of the pool lights. A summer without a major storm or man-made catastrophe made wonderful new furniture, as well as lots of updates, a reality.
Kiva Grand is truely amazing. The online photos do not do the home justice. The home is much larger in real life. We celebrated a wedding/ family reunion in this home and it will always be special to us. If you need a home to accomadate a large family this is for you. I could go on and on all day about how perfect the house was and I wouldn't change a thing except maybe loose the piano. Little ones are hard to keep away from... LOL. My family was so pleased with this home we are already making plans to return.

THIS IS A GREAT HOUSE FOR A LARGE OR EXTENDED FAMILY. THE PICTURES UNDERSTATE HOW "GRAND" THIS ESTATE ACTUALLY IS. GREAT VIEWS, PRIVACY AROUND EVERY CORNER, AND LOTS OF FUN THINGS TO KEEP GUESTS OF ALL AGES OCCUPIED. AN UNDERSTANDABLE PROBLEM WITH THE HEAT OCCURRED AND THE OWNER WAS QUICK TO RESPOND. THE FAMILY WANTS TO BOOK ANOTHER STAY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
