It is directly beach front with an outdoor shower to rinse the salt and sand off before returning to your 3rd floor unit. Parking spaces - both covered and open-air are more than adequate.

About Debbie

I am a recently retired Professor of Nursing. My husband is retired from Shell Chemical. We have owned beach front properties in Gulf Shores for over 35 years. Our two kids grew up spending every summer at the beach and we can now do the same with our 3 (so far) grand kids. This unit has offered our family countless years of pleasure and we are happy to share it so that you can make your own lasting memories.

Debbie purchased this condo in 1999

Why Debbie chose Gulf Shores

We really love the family-friendly atmosphere of the Royal Palms complex. It offers so many amenities - beachside shower, 2 pools, a sauna, a steam room and a fitness center. It is right next to the State Park so there is lots of room to spread out on the beach. The new fishing pier is just a short stroll to the East. There is a beach chair/umbrella rental service directly in front of complex.

What makes this condo unique

We are on a lower floor so you can take the stairs if you don't want to wait for 1 of the 2 elevators. Parking is plentiful. The unit is directly gulf-front with beautiful views. So don't hesitate to book early - our dates fill up quickly!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay so much at your condo. Everything was so nice! Thank you again for allowing us to stay. We will definitely book with you again.

Absolute Dream Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had the best time in this Condo! View was perfect and better than you could ever imagine! Owners were very responsive and accommodating during the booking process. Love the chaise patio chair on the balcony! Beach was not crowded at all, plenty of room. Indoor pool made this choice stand out over others!

Excellent vacation condo.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this condo. It was clean and a well run building and facility. Security was always roaming the exterior. The location is ideal for a family with children. We had a blast! From sailing in the air to fishing on the pier, everything is just right outside your building.

Thank you for the wonderful week in Gulf Shores, we felt very much at home. Great location and beach. Easy beach walk to the pier and only a short car ride to wonderful restaurants and shopping. Debbie was great to answer any questions promptly and would recommend and stay here again! Great restaurants we visited: Acme Oyster, The Original Oyster House and Villagio at the Wharf.
