5 beds and 5 baths offers the ultimate in comfort and privacy.
Why Robin Shaw chose Gulf Shores
We purchased Rising Tide as a beach get-a-way for our five children and their families after renting several vacation homes in the area for more than a decade. It has so much space and the bedrooms are like individual apartments, always available when you want a little quiet time. It's been the perfect family retreat. We moved just down the beach and will be renting our home at the Kiva resort for the first time in 2019 so others can enjoy it.
What makes this House unique
There are actually 4 suites with full private baths and an additional 5th bedroom with a full bath just outside the door. When you bring so many people together it's important to have plenty of common space to gather and also plenty of room when you want to get away and enjoy your privacy. That's the magical part of this home, so many places to enjoy together and very spacious rooms to retreat to and enjoy your quiet time at the beach. If you have more than a dozen people here it will seem like only four or five guests!

July 27 Family Beach Trip
Owners were very accommodating and really went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable. Property was more than what expected. Golf cart was a super plus(Grands loved it). Everyone enjoyed screened in porches(very peaceful and secluded) and each family had their own bathroom! Really liked the lower level with sitting area and laundry being separated from upper levels. Oh, crock pot was a great touch.... we had several meals in it. Large table and kurig coffee maker was really nice! Best place we have stayed so far!
Beautiful Property Not Good For the Disabled
First of all the owners are wonderful people. I would rent from them again in a minute. Just not at this resort. Our group was very large and two of us are disabled. There is absolutely NO beach access anywhere on the property for the elderly or disabled. So the two of us were only able to enjoy the beach one time during our stay and I thought we would never get back to the trolley. It literally took me 50 minutes to walk from the beach to the pickup spot. With saying that, do not plan to take very many beach things period. The walk from the trolley is very difficult for anyone who would try to carry things over. Unless you are a golfer the golf cart is useless as there is no where to park it or an automobile anywhere near the beach entrance. Now the clubhouse was very nice, great pool and good food (everyone enjoyed taco Tuesday) Plenty of chairs for laying out and plenty of umbrellas for shade. Like I said previously, the property owners are excellent, ask them questions about everything you are interested in to make sure it is what it says. Happy Trails to all.
July 4th Family Vacay
Our family of 14 had an absolute blast at this property! Everything from meeting Robin & her husband when we arrived, use of the golf cart to get around the resort, swimming pool & tennis court right outside our front door and the beach was fabulous and not crowded at all!
Everything that we could possibly want in the kitchen was available (except a muffin pan which we gladly purchased and donated to the kitchen) as we cooked in quite a bit!
Part of our group watched the wonderful fireworks show from the beach while the rest of us chose to watch it outside from the top floor balcony of the house!
We have been coming to the beach for over 15 years always choosing a different location and Kiva Dunes rates up pretty high on the list of favorites!
Thank you again Robin for an amazing stay at your property!
The Langston Family
This is a great house. Golf cart is a very handy resource for running back and forth to the beach. We had 7 adults and 5 children and there was plenty of room. Very well stocked too. Definitely recommend it for a place to stay. Pool across the street as well. The beach club deserves a visit as well.
