About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Royal Palms 1008, is a West End Unit with some of the most spectacular views and sunsets on the beach... from every room! It is uniquely located... Next to Gulf State Park, a pristine, undeveloped three mile beach with public fishing pier. Truly a tranquil setting, yet convenient to the action in Gulf Shores-Orange Beach.

This lovely, deluxe condo has been furnished with everything you need for the best beach vacation ever. There is a king-size master bedroom with private bath, a queen-size second bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the large great room. The kitchen is fully-equipped for serious cooking... or not!

Enjoy the heated indoor/outdoor pool with whirlpool hot tub and deck or just step out of the back of the complex onto your private beach and a few short steps later you will be wiggling your toes in the emerald blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico! You won't want to leave and you will definitely want to come back again and again!

Weekly rentals offer discounted rates when booking a Saturday to Saturday stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hi, Mike and Tammy Nelson here. We are the owners of Royal Palms 1008. We live in this beautiful paradise on the Gulf Coast and absolutely LOVE it! Due to the fact that we live close by, we are here when you need us. Our goal is to make sure that your experience is a wonderful one while staying at our condo. Thanks for visiting our site! Mike and Tammy Nelson

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
After looking at at least 50 other condos including some in Florida, we loved this location above all of them for many reasons. The friendly community, tons of things to do, and convenient location was part of the reasons. The State Park adjoining the property was a Huge Plus. The fact that this BREATH TAKING VIEW will never be obstructed sealed the deal!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo is a 10th floor, west end unit that sits directly on the beach and has Incredible Ocean Views! Most likely while sitting on the balcony you will see the Dolphin playing, beautiful ships and boats passing buy, parasailing activities, blimps floating in the air and AWESOME SUNSETS. There are many restaurants and activities located very close and several are within walking distance. There is a new place called the Hang Out that has great food and tons of fun. It is just a short walk down the beach. Other restaurants within walking distance are Pink Pony Pub, Hooters, Sea n Suds, and Gulf Island Grill. The State Park adjoins the condo on the East, which makes for a more private setting and all you see are beautiful sandy beaches and emerald green water. We take pride in keeping the condo very clean, well equipped and decorated with a fun and pleasing atmosphere. There is also high speed Internet for your convenience. Located on the ground floor is a glassed indoor pool and hot tub, which look directly out to the ocean and beach. Just outside is the outdoor pool with a great view as well. There is a beach chair rental service available for Royal Palms Guest. One of my favorite things about the condo is when you walk off the parking deck you walk on to a short boardwalk to the beach. In just a few steps your feet are in the sand.
