Beach Getaway! Stunning View on Private Balcony- Directly On Beach

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Frequently watch the dolphins play with your morning coffee or favorite beverage, from your private balcony in #1307 on the penthouse level 1. Or, just enjoy beautiful breath taking views of the fall and winter sunrise/sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. Royal Palms is somewhat secluded, adjacent to Gulf State Park, an undeveloped three mile beach. Yet it is still conveniently located in the heart of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach attractions are also within a few miles.

Regardless of weather, there is the heated indoor pool and hot tub, and a steam and dry sauna, as well as a fitness room. There is also an outdoor pool for perfect outdoor weather. The sparkling white beach is within footsteps of the building, which the private balcony overhangs. There is also a bike storage area if you wish to bring along your bicycles.

This unit was remodeled and completely repainted in Nov 2016. It has spacious extra high ceilings (only available on this P-1 level of the building), Queen size bedroom with a private bathroom, 2nd bathroom in hall, alcove bunk beds (great for kids!), and a Queen size sofa sleeper in the living area (also great for kids). The dining and living area contain a flat screen TV along with Cable/DVD and a flat screen TV is also located in the bedroom. There is a collection of DVD movies, card and board games, and magazines provided for enjoyment. WiFi Internet service, a washer & dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen to cook your favorite meals when you are not in the mood to visit the nearby restaurants are other features.

It has already created lasting memories for many (see guest comments section). An exciting and/or relaxing vacation getaway!!!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The weather did not cooperate but I enjoyed the amenities of the property. Loved the indoor pool and close proximity to many activities and good restaurants. View from condo is spectacular.

Excellent location, spectacular view! just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

Cozy 1 bedroom 2 full baths with a sleeper sofa and a hall nook that has been converted into bunk beds that would be fun for kids as long as they aren't to tall. We were only a couple and the main bed was fine. The heated indoor pool and hot tub were great and the outdoor pool although to cool for our stay looked nice. perfect walking distance to the pier and the main hangout. The dolphins were really active and watching them play while having our coffee on the balcony was perfect. would love to come back and will put this one on my list of top picks!

Great Condo, Great Location, and Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, directly on the gulf with an unbelievable view from the balcony. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises, convenient to everything. Very nice decor, well stocked, very clean. Perfect for a couple or small family.

We loved looking for sea shells, watching fishermen on the pier, and just hanging out on the beach.

Thanks for sharing your condo with us!
