About Owner

We have been married for 20 wonderful years! I am very blessed to have married my best friend! We enjoy lots of outdoor activities and staying active. When Ron isn't golfing and I'm not playing tennis...you will find us at the beach!!! We also have very spoiled rescue mutts! They are the love of our lives and the best dogs ever! Well, except one....lol

                                                                  Wade C.

                                                                  This is a beautiful house close to the beach and golf course. We really enjoyed our spring break stay!

                                                                  Great time!

                                                                  Holly R.

                                                                  Nice house. Essentials provided. Not far from the beach. Family oriented, quiet neighborhood. Our 3rd summer in this neighborhood! Lovely trip!

                                                                  Couldn't Have Asked For Better!!!

                                                                  Katie J.Farmington, Arkansas

                                                                  This house had absolutely everything we needed (except groceries, of course)! We had 7 adults and 7 children and there was room for several more. The extra twin bed in the hideout under the stairs, plus the two roll away beds, and the 2 sleeper sofas (which we didn't even need to use) offered plenty of extra sleeping spaces! The laundry room was huge and one teen even put a roll away in it! The master closet was so big that we added a pack and play and it made a perfect nursery. There were plenty of entertainment options on the TVs (Hulu, Netflix, cable) but the weather was so nice, we hardly needed it! Loved having a huge kitchen to cook all of our big meals! The walk to the beach wasn't long at all and seemed even shorter if you cut through the pool area. You can even call the shuttles for free. The pool was super close to the house! Older guests or guests with trouble with stairs should not that the beach access does have quite a few stairs. The beach was not very full at all and the water was so clear. There was a large sandbar and gentle waves which made it perfect for our little ones. Overall, the house was perfect and just what we needed for our 5th annual family gathering at the gulf!

                                                                  Great beach/golf community but house not well maintained

                                                                  beth b.

                                                                  We loved Kiva Dunes but this house is dirty and not well maintained. Lots of mold (doors, showers, balcony cushions), light bulbs out (17), water stained ceilings, water stained curtains, weeds for a front yard, etc. The owner was responsive to sending cleaning ladies back but the work needed is greater than what 2 ladies with a rag can do. Everything I pointed out was either a deep clean, which they do not provide, or a maintenance issue. The owner also said a maintenance man would be calling my cell to address some of the maintenance issues (just what I want to do on vacation) but no one ever called. PLUS, the owner has chosen not to pay to belong to the Kiva Dunes Beach Club so any guest of this house is NOT allowed is use the beach club. There are only 13 homes not participating in the Kiva Dunes beach club so if you want to use it then find another house.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  This guest contacted us 3 days prior to check in, asking if they cancelled, would they receive a refund. Being in the rental business for over 25 years, this was immediately a red flag to us.

                                                                  Within 20 minutes of check in, they called us with a few housekeeping issues. Housekeeping was immediately sent back and resolved their concerns, while they followed them around to make sure it was done. After housekeeping left, the guest contacted us again, with additional unfounded complaints. We had the owner of housekeeping company call them directly and they refused to let her come and inspect.

                                                                  Our only guess is maybe someone in their party had to cancel at the last minute and they were trying to find ways to compensate their loss.

                                                                  Upon checkout, housekeeping sent us pictures of the deplorable condition they left our beautiful home, mattress were off the beds, toilets were clogged, food was left all over the carpets and tile.

                                                                  We are thankful that almost all of our guest, love and appreciate this beautiful beach home as much as we do and compliment how clean and beautiful it is.

                                                                  We stayed at Southern Comfort in Kuva Duned.

                                                                  Debbie S.

                                                                  Southern comfort was absolutely beautiful! We loved the balconies and the short walk to the pool. The owners were quick to reply to our inquiries.

                                                                  Our only regret is that recycling wasn't an option. Our trash output was large and a second pickup or a recycling container would have been beneficial.

                                                                  Despite tropical storm Cindy, we had an amazing time.

                                                                  Great property, lots of room and fantastic location for a relaxing week.

                                                                  Jason B.

                                                                  We had a great experience at Southern Comfort. We had 7 adults and 2 small children with us on the trip and had lots of room. Kiva Dunes is an awesome community with very friendly people and a great southern atmosphere. The house was beautiful, supplied with everything you need to have a great vacation. My boys loved having access to the bikes and weight room, the pools were great and even had a basketball court for my boys to play a little ball. The best part was access to quiet beaches was only a few blocks away. Overall one of the best vacations we have had as a family. Thanks
