About the property

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

This unit was remodeled and completely repainted in Nov 2016. 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.

The unit 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. The dining and living area contain a new 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!!!

Million Dollar View!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in the condo! The unit had been recently painted and upgraded. It was clean , quiet, and comfortable with all of the amenities expected in a beachfront condo. The view from the balcony is stunning! Looking forward to enjoying it again in the future! Thanks!

Condo Needs Updating & Good Cleaning

  • 3 of 5

This condo needs to be updated & professionally cleaned. Our feet were black on the bottoms from walking on the tile floors. All the bathroom fixtures are dated. Sorry but need to be honest

Owner's Response: Wow - We've never received a 3 star rating! I wish you had informed me of your dissatisfaction with the floor upon your arrival rather than so long after your departure. It would have immediately been rectified by my cleaning service. Cleaning has to be at very high standards for me and my service is well aware of that. All of the bathroom fixtures work properly; granted they are not brand new and not advertised to be. They work just fine and there is nothing wrong with the appearance? I'm sorry you were not happy with them. Unfortunately, it just goes to show the old saying must be accurate "You just can't please everyone no matter how hard you try!" We have many very happy guests as can be read below in the other reviews. Thanks anyway for your comments. We still try to "step it up a notch"! We have just redecorated and repainted the entire condo which was occurring regardless as this is not only a rental condo but our own personal condo.

Stunning view--directly on beach

  • 4 of 5

The view really is stunning and it couldn't be closer to the beach as well as convienient to groceries, restaurants and shopping.

I'd love to give our stay five stars but the devil is in the details and five stars should be perfect. We got off to a bad start due to A/C issues but the owner was very responsive and we were cooling off fairly quickly. It was an inconvenience but not really that big a deal.

Here's why four stars and not five: light bulbs and TVs. There is only one lamp in the living room and the bulb was burned out. One of the bedside lamps didn't have a bulb in it at all. And there were no replacements anywhere. There is a light in the ceiling fan but a bright glare from an overhead light is no substitute for a lamp when it comes to TV viewing and reading. The TVs are old and should be replaced. We didn't use the one in the bedroom. The living room TV had a bad picture and the speakers were shot. We had to turn the volume up really high in order to hear it but that caused a distortion in the sound.

This unit is showing its age and could do with a little sprucing up. Maybe a little paint and some air fresheners?

I'd love to return to this complex because of the magnificent location but maybe not this particular unit. Details details details! Four stars out of five is pretty good though. And I would probably recommend to my friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We will certainly take them into consideration. We strive to maintain our unit not only for the satisfaction of our rental guests, but also for our own as this is our personal condo. Unfortunately A/C's and other appliances have issues from time to time whether on vacation or in your own home. They are never convenient! This matter was promptly dealt with as well as light bulbs were delivered when we were notified that the stock has been depleted. That has been addressed with my cleaning company as they are supposed to ensure that doesn't happen. As far as the TV, we were unaware it was not working properly as no one else has complained or commented on it. It has however, now been replaced. The condo actually just received new paint throughout in November 2016 after your departure which was occurring regardless. We have many wonderful guest reviews as our future potential guests can continue to read below. We are sorry for any inconveniences during your stay.
