Property description

.. CAUTION.. THERE ARE SEVERAL RENTALS THAT ARE ADVERTISED AS BEING AT "KIVA DUNES" that are not part of KIVA DUNES. DONT BE MISLEAD BY UNSCRUPULOUS, MISLEADING ADVERTISING.. RENTALS IN THE "PLANTATION' ARE NOT !!! PART OF KIVA. THEY CANNOT USE ANY OF THE OWNER'S AMENITIES AT KIVA... DONT BE MISLEAD!!!!!. .. PLEASE CALL US FOR SPECIAL PRICINGTHAT MAY BE AVAILABLE in August. Our unit is a 3-bed, 3-bath, beautifully decorated 3rd level beauty. We chose this level for its lack of wind gusts that enable us to enjoy all the benefits of the fresh air on our 52 foot long balcony, large enough for a wedding, Morning coffee overlooking beautiful country club is incredible, or just take elevator down to great restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner, watching the sunset from our west exposure is even more incredible. The same exposure allows us to enjoy the evenings in a cool comfortable atmosphere. Unit has new mattresses and a smooth top range and 21 cubic ft refrig with large capacity ice maker. New Quartz countertops complete the new kitchen. ONLY PAY 6.5% TAX. Any more is illegal.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: I retired 4 years ago, 2 years after purchasing our first home here in Fort Morgan. Then 3 years ago this place became available and we couldn't wait to purchase it too. We live here, at Kiva Dunes, for at least 6 months a year. Having paid cash for our condo, we can pass along the savings to our guests, while being selective in our potential guests.

Why Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We purchased this particular unit for its views and quiet luxury we will enjoy in the years to come while sharing it with our son and his family. The country club I belong to at home is known for its world class golf and that is another reason we chose this complex. The #1 course in all of Alabama is at my door step. One of our real simple luxuries is laying in the master bedroom and sharing s beverage while watching the sunset. A new 60 inch TV is great for viewing. 7 foot, 6 person dining table on balcony, as well as spacious 8 foot dining table inside with 6 chairs provides adults with plenty of room. The large glass doors from 2 of the bedrooms to the balcony are a real plus. Our living room also has 10 ft wide glass doors. The close proximity to the beach is a real plus for us also, this complex is as close as you get to golf. Another reason for us choosing this unit is its solitude. There is no noise from swimming pools on this side of the building. We employ a professional cleaning firm should any problems arise while you are at our place. ALL OF GULF SHORES PROPERTIES FOR RENT ARE SUBJECT TO THE 6.5% TAX. IF YOU RENT FROM AN ILLEGAL OWNER AND THE TAX IS NOT BEING PAID YOU ARE SUBJECT TO THIS TAX. LOCAL OFFICIALS HAVE RECENTLY CRACKED DOWN ON THIS AND YOU SHOULD ASK FOR IN WRITING FROM THE OWNER THAT THIS TAX IS BEING PAID. IF NOT, YOU SHOULD REPORT THEM TO THE LOCAL TAXING DISTRICT. This affords you the peace of mind should anything go wrong it will be fixed immediately by the 24/7 staff. We believe this cost is well worth it for us. If there is a problem, you, as a renter, call a local number and the problem is taken care of quickly by professionals familiar with the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
From May thru Sept. there is a FREE shuttle to take your beach needs, as well as you and your guests to the PRIVATE beach just a 4 minute walk if you choose. Our new, in May 2017, PRIVATE beach club with pool, bar, restraunt, and beach furniture is available for our guests at no additional charge. This being a third floor unit makes it great should the elevator ever malfunction. We are only 30 feet from ground level and we enjoy this potential perk a lot. The unit is not close to the elevators and this makes for a very quiet situation. There are no noises from a/c or vent fans from other units or facilities. Bathroom #3 is handicap accessible walk-in shower w/handrails.
