Tammy Nelson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Tammy Nelson chose Alabama Gulf Coast

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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great view. Condo was clean, everything was well-communicated. Easy beach access, quite environment. Indoor pool was great on cold nights over Thanksgiving week. Plenty of room inside condo itself. Building itself was a little dated, but great experience. Very easy to move around Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Highly recommend.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My two girlfriends and I spent a week in this darling condo and had a fantastic time! It is an end unit brightly decorated and located high on the tenth floor which gave us an amazing view of the beach. There were no other buildings blocking our view since we were right next to the state park. We loved being within walking distance of the pier, which we did early in the morning to gather sea shells and watch beautiful sunrises!! We were away from the masses, so you definitely need a car if you stay here. The condo was nice and clean when we arrived. The large table and chairs on the balcony provided a great place for us to sit and play cards--or just chill and enjoy the beach and gulf. There is a nice big swing by the walkway to the beach that we all enjoyed sitting in together. The kitchen had everything we needed. Tammy was super to work with and very responsive. If we ever make it back down there, we'll see you again, Tammy!! Thanks for working so well with us!!!

Best week of fun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year to stay in unit 1008. It was a very pleasant stay once again. Everything there we needed and unit well cared for. TV is very sensitive and difficult but we managed. We will be back next year

Best location!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located at the absolute best part of the Gulf Shores! It was quiet, the beach wasn't crowded and one side is a national park. We were dodging some thunderstorms, but since the building was so close, we'd leave our umbrella, chairs and toys to run in to the pool until it cleared again! Oh and the condo itself is an end unit, so you don't have anyone on one side and you get extra views :)

The kitchen has every appliance, tool, towel or dish you'd ever need! We were very impressed by the overall cleanliness, the shower water pressure was great and the beds were very comfortable. TV's worked great too during some rainy evenings :)

We hope we get the chance to get back to Royal Palms 1008! Thanks Tammy!!!

Very Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very nice! With the two bedrooms it has a lot of space. It was also very clean when we arrived. The view from the windows and balcony are amazing. Access to the beach is perfect! We would recommend anyone considering this unit to book it. I hope we can come back again sometime!
