Great time!

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!!!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 1 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

This is a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We were all so excited to see our home for the week. It was worth waiting for. The owners have put a lot of thought into this home, trying to make it as comfortable as possible. It is a beautiful neighborhood. We had 13 in our family that got to come down, some coming down at different times. We had plenty of room. They even have two rollaway beds tucked into different parts of the house. A wonderful laundry room with a good washer and dryer. In my experience those are hard to find in condo rentals. Also a two car garage to put excess stuff in. That was so nice to have for beach equipment. They have lots of beach equipment already in the garage for you to use. The pool and beach was very nice. We had rain for a few days but there's nothing you can do about this. You can't fight Mother Nature. We had a great time anyways. The beach wasn't crowded at all and we really enjoyed that. The owners very quickly responded to the one call we had to make. All in all, the owners were great and the house was beautiful. Great vacation.
