Bring your “yoots” and your friends. Wear your sandals and sun shades – oh yeah, you’ll blend!
Vinny’s spacious vacation home is perfectly placed, directly on the Tee box of Jerry Pate’s signature 13th Hole of Alabama’s number one rated golf course. The total package, Vinny’s place grants you terrific access to the best of golf and gulf! You can have your toes in the sand of Kiva Dunes’ 3000 feet of private beach after a short stroll to the west boardwalk crossover. During summer season a free shuttle is even available to get you around the community.
Vinny loves to golf and fish. Mrs. Vinny and the kids love the beach, pool and shopping. This Kiva Dunes property makes everyone happy as a clam!
After a day at the beach, you can rinse off under the outdoor shower then take a dip in Vinny's pool with waterfall jacuzzi. Swim, soak and suntan in this rare private pool area of Vinny’s getaway that also includes an outdoor cooking area with searing and gas grills. Vinny likes to cook and eat, too - so the third floor kitchen is fully equipped! Crock pots, electric griddle, stock pots, and cast iron dutch oven are just a few cooking comforts.
Since the living area and kitchen are where everyone likes to be, Vinny put it where the best views are – the third floor. But how do you get those groceries up there? An elevator, of course. Vinny thought of everything!
The large screened-in balconies on the second and third floors are an amazing way to enjoy mealtime and morning coffee! A real “hidden” treasure of this place is the fourth floor crow’s nest. In addition to amazing views of tee and sea, it is the favorite hang out for kids! Your family, especially the adults, will enjoy being together in the open third floor living space where the kitchen, dining and living rooms are while the kids enjoy their personal space in the crow’s nest just overhead. This area is furnished with a TV (for gaming devices) and foam chair beds. The storage bench even includes two full-size air mattresses with pump. The “yoots” really love this area!
Your stay at Kiva Dunes gives you peaceful quiet and relaxation. With shopping and water park attractions just 15 minutes away in Gulf Shores you get the best of both worlds. Three additional community pools, tennis court, fitness center and Kiva’s Tiki bar & grill are all part of this spectacular vacation location.
Already reasonably priced for such a huge space, imagine sharing the cost with other family and friends! My Cousin Vinny’s familial charm is never more appreciated than when loved ones are together in this tranquil place where time seems to slow down.
My Cousin Vinny’s is also a perfect retreat spot for your board of directors or sales team to reflect and regroup. A Business Center and Conference Rooms are located at the Kiva Dunes Club House.
Don’t delay in booking your gulf coast getaway here and making memories that will last a lifetime. My Cousin Vinny’s will be your new “happy place”!

Year Purchased: 2013
About: We are a family of five from Louisiana. We love the south - the history, the climate, the people and, most of all, the food!
Why Kiva Dunes: Our family considered vacation spots all along the gulf coast. We fell in love with the Kiva Dunes community where we can choose how we want to vacation. It is always peaceful and quiet here...even during peak season! With easy access to a beautiful private beach where umbrellas aren't five deep, a clubhouse with fitness center and restaurant, and security 24/7 we felt this was the perfect place for our family to get away. Having a home versus a condo means that we can enjoy each other in a terrific and quiet space. If we want noise and crowds, the drive into Gulf Shores is just 15 minutes away. We can truly get to any attraction, restaurant or shopping center (yay! Foley) we'd like in under 30 minutes. It really is the best of everything!
The Unique Benefits at this House: My Cousin Vinny's is a dream vacation home. Few homes in this community have a private pool - it is a rare gem! In the south, especially along the coast, mosquitoes and no-see-ums (yes, that is the name of an actual insect) can drive you indoors when the sun sets. Not at My Cousin Vinny's! On the large screened-in balconies you can carry on - visit, play cards, enjoy the swing, or just snuggle in a chaise while listening to the crashing waves and surf without being eaten by pesky insects.
