Or, just enjoy beautiful breath taking views of the fall and winter sunrise/sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.

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 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!!!

Why Cindy Duos chose Gulf Shores

Because we love the beach! And, Royal Palms is a nice, well kept building.

What makes this Condo unique

The view from the condo balcony is unbelievable. It is on the next floor from the top of the building. This Penthouse 1 level has higher ceilings than any other floor in the building creating a roomier living/dining area. We love the Royal Palms location which is unique due to the somewhat secluded beach area which is much less crowded than the other properties in Gulf Shores.

                                                                    Wendy A.Madison, WI

                                                                    Very much enjoyed the condo, it was the perfect size for our family of four. It had a wonderful view, is right on the beach, nice pools and hot tub, plus having a washer and dryer in the unit was very handy. We also really liked the location - not crowded like up the beach more but still plenty of people walking past and in walking distance to the busier area of the beach/restaurants. The weather was very unpredictable. Forecast called for rain and clouds most days, but we actually had lots of sun and only a day and half of overcast/sprinkles. Town was very crowded during spring break so driving during peak hours and getting a table at a restaurant after 6 pm was trying. We loved having the kitchen and cooked up shrimp several times on our own. Also enjoyed hiking the State Park, going to Fort Morgan and the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola - all great things to do on a cloudy day (or sunny). Cindy was extremely easy to work with and very responsive when we had questions. Thank you so much!

                                                                    Great location great views great memories

                                                                    Scott T.North Louisiana

                                                                    Great Stay on The Beach!

                                                                    Julie F.

It was a beautiful setting, and we enjoyed being able to be on the beach and so close to the pier. We got down to Gulf Shores earlier than planned and the owners were gracious enough to let us check in early. Would love to return for another stay!

                                                                    Great Location!

                                                                    ADAM R.

                                                                    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!

                                                                    Just Right
