Overview

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 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!!!

Very clean and comfortable. Exactly what is pictured.

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with my 3 kids. We had an amazing time. We were comfortable, the views are breathtaking. I had coffee while watching the sunrise every morning. The kids really enjoyed the heated indoor pool and easy beach access. We will definitely be back. In fact, the kids want to go back now. I can't think of anything I would improve. We had plenty of towels and blankets. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils to cook with. Great condo. Great vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Everyone that we met was very nice and we loved the condo and pool.

There are so many great places to eat. We enjoyed all the fresh seafood

Had a little cold spell, but that is something noone can control

Good Location/Great Views

  • 3 of 5

Royal Palms is ideally located and condo units provide excellent views of the beach and Gulf.

Our condo's accomodations were fair with bathroom(s) needing updating and sleeping for six is a stretch. The pull-out sleeper sofa function is marginal, at best.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The sleeper/sofa is just that! Your reservation inquiry was for a (2) adult stay. I was not informed you were having guests until you had already arrived and needed another parking pass, or I would have informed you that the sofa might not be comfortable for a (4) night stay for them, depending upon the guests. It is a good point; however, that we advertise the condo sleeps 4-6, that specifically should mean for families - kids in the bunks and pull out. Therefore, I have adjusted the accommodations on the listing details. I work very hard to provide accurate photos and descriptions of the condo so as not to mislead anyone.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

This was out first visit to Gulf Shores, AL. The condo was outfitted very well for the two of us. The location was perfect as we had direct access to the beach and the state park hiking and biking trails.

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!
