About the property

You Will Love This Condo For Your Next Vacation At The Beach! Let Us Help You!

This two bedroom and two bath condo unit is located on the 11th floor with breathtaking views from the Over Sized balcony. We recently remodeled our condo with new furniture, appliances, granite, and freshly painted walls for your next vacation!

There are fantastic views from the Over Sized balcony, master bedroom and living room in all directions with no obstacles of the beach and ocean! Our condo has quality mattresses and linens. There are flat screen TV's in each bedroom and in the living room. We also have great outdoor balcony furniture including two loungers as you relax on the Over Sized balcony and feel the breeze of the ocean and listen to the waves.

Our condo is comprised of the following:

• King in the master bedroom -- with a master bath, flat screen TV, and closet in the master bedroom

• Queen in the guest bedroom --with an adjoining bathroom in the hallway, flat screen TV and closet as well in the guest bedroom

• The sofa converts to a sleeper (queen) in the living area –with a flat screen TV for the living area and two comfortable accent chairs for relaxing

• The kitchen has all new appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with small appliances and all of the necessary cooking utensils

• There is a washer and dryer in the unit -- linens are provided for your stay

• Our balcony is also a great refuge with a table and chairs along with two lounge chairs. It is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or even an afternoon snack. We love sitting around and talking on our balcony with friends. I am sure that you will love it!

• We have beautiful pools which include an indoor pool and an outdoor pool. We have a hot tub, sauna, and fitness center in Royal Palms as well.

Royal Palms is such a desirable rental because it has all the amenities of larger condos without the higher price. Royal Palms is situated on western edge of our state park, which provides ultimate privacy. The Over Sized balcony provides awesome views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. My favorite part about staying at the Royal Palms is the location on the beach!

About Belva Herron

We live in central Illinois and have been coming to the Gulf Shores area since 1994. Our whole family has enjoyed coming to the beach in the spring, summer and fall for our vacation getaways. We looked at several condos with our realtor and when we walked into Royal Palms 1105, we fell in love and knew immediately this was the condo for us. We have had many wonderful memories including our 2 children's weddings on the beach here at Royal Palms. We would love to share our condo with you so you and your family can create many wonderful memories also.

Belva Herron purchased this condo in 2010

Why Belva Herron chose Alabama

The location of this condo complex is perfect! It is the last complex on East Beach Blvd before you get to the State Park. Our beautiful stretch of the beach is truly unbeatable. It is not heavily populated during the spring and summer, like the public beaches. The sugar white sands and clear blue waters are welcoming year around. You are only moments from the Fishing Pier, which is lit up at night and breath taking. To the West, within walking distance are many shopping and casual dining places.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is not crowded and is next to the Gulf State Park. The Condo Complex is clean and well maintained.

Great condo walking distance to Hangout Festival with a beautiful patio and view of the beach. We so enjoyed our weekend! The condo had everything we needed and was the perfect size for 4 people. Will definitely be visiting again!

Beautiful condo and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We were beyond satisfied with our recent stay in Royal Palms unit 1105! The condo is very nicely decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was quite efficient and well stocked with all dishes and cookware that we needed.

This was our third time staying at the Royal Palms and it definitely will not be our last. The location next to the state park means the beach in front of the condo is much less crowded. And the view from the 11th floor was gorgeous! We were treated to fly by's of pelicans and even the Blue Angels.

Belva was such a lovely owner to work with. Her communication with us was fantastic. She made sure we had arrived safely and that everything was satisfactory. She even texted me to give us the heads up about traffic being detoured at the end of our stay because of the music festival at the Hangout. Thanks again, Belva!

We will be return guests. No doubt about that!!

Enjoyed our first trip to Gulf Shores

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at Belva's vacation home for Spring Break and we loved it. It was our first time vacationing in Gulf Shores. The condo was spotless upon arrival!! There was plenty of space, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and we absolutely loved the large balcony space (we listened to the waves as often as we could!). We loved being able to walk right out to the beach but being close to the condo to allow the kids to use the pool or even run back up to the condo if needed. Remember to bring everything you'll need for your stay that is not on the amenities list (e.g. toilet paper, laundry and dishwasher detergent, trash bags, paper towels, etc). We forgot, but luckily there is a Walmart very close to the condo! Belva was so easy to rent from and was so helpful with tips for our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
