Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Gulf Shores - Just for Fun

2BR, 2 full baths, plus 1 outdoor shower, sleeps 4

Enchanting Cottage in the Unrivaled Kiva Dunes Golf and Seaside Community.

Feel the warmth of the sun, the sand beneath your toes and the smell of suntan oil as you spend some lazy days in this picturesque cottage. Located in the magnificent golf and seaside community Kiva Dunes, this sun kissed house has everything you are looking for. With two bedrooms and two baths, this humble beach abode sleeps 4 comfortably. There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom and two twins in the second bedroom. Wood floors, ceiling fans for that 'southern comfort' feeling.

The kitchen is fully equipped for your culinary needs and will inspire you to sip ice tea and eat boiled shrimp out on the airy porches. After an evening out under the stars, come in and enjoy a movie on cable TV, or VCR, DVD, or your favorite music on the FM/CD player. We also have playing cards, board games, and a small VCR/DVD library of films. Free Wi-Fi.

What to Do:: A nearby walkway leads you over the white dunes and sea oats to the cool surf where sand crabs scurry about. Delight in chartered fishing excursions, championship golf, nature walks, outlet shopping, amusement parks, wonderful restaurants, on site tennis, or swimming in any of the three private community pools or relax at nearby day spa.

The property was exactly as shown in the pictures!! Great and cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was as relaxing and peaceful as I was hoping!! The pool and beach were easily accessible from the cottage. Unfortunately, we did not leave the community for any outings. We enjoyed going from the pool, to the beach and back to the pool during our stay. The house was well equipped with everything needed to make dinner, lunch, and breakfast.

I will be returning to this cottage in the future and will recommend this place to friends.

This was a perfect place for just me! I had a friend come down for a few days and it was an easy walk to the beach. Also the private outdoor shower was awesome! I'll be back for sure!

Great Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an great time, the owners were friendly and easy to deal with from the get-go. The cottage was adorable and perfect for our little family of 3, but it would work great for 4 as well. The house was super clean and comfortable. The outdoor space had great views and were perfect for relaxing, the outdoor shower off the master bath was so cool. One of the 3 pools in the complex was two houses away, and the lovely private beach was about a half a block away over two beautiful walkways over the dunes. We loved it. We started the day and ended the evenings at the beach. Just a great all around experience. We are already planning a return trip!

Most amazing vacation.....golf, beach, and family!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation. The house was absolutely perfect. The guys came in from the golf course and had lunch, every day. The golf course is the back yard!!!!! The beach was just across the street, and the pool right around the corner. Everything we needed for the beach, was provided, except our bathing suits. Bbq grill, washer/dryer, dishwasher, directv, balcony, etc......the propert has everything. The Boudreaux's were excellent, in keeping us informed about everything, and making sure we had a wonderful time. The property is very private, and you can sun on the porch. Access to the property was very easy. All in all, we will be going back, because the property was everything described and more. Also, did I mention the incredibly beautiful property, beach and amazing golf!!!! The Sassy Bass just down the road is super yummy!!!!! Can't wait until next year!!!!!
