About Charlie Lovelace

I grew up in Fairhope in late 50s-early 60s. Now live 35 miles North of Atlanta in Woodstock.

Grew up fishing with Pop in the Gulf and love the Beach. I use to stay at the Royal Palms because it is very private with the Gulf State Park Beach right next door.

I bought Unit 308 in 2010 because I wanted too and Unit 608 in 2014 for investment

Charlie Lovelace purchased this condo in 2010

Why Charlie Lovelace chose Alabama Gulf Coast

The Royal Palms IS THE BEST BEACH LOCATION IN GULF SHORES. We only have 98 units and we have more privacy than any of the other condos in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach.

What makes this condo unique

WE ARE RIGHT ON THE BEACH and still close to the shopping and other activities the guest desire.

Beautiful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at this condo. for 5 days recently and had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect for our needs. Good size and beautiful location. It was clean , comfortable and had that "beachy" feel. The view from the balcony was spectacular. Although it was a vacation, we were up early every morning to watch the most amazing sunrises! Where else can you see both a sunrise and sunset over the water on the same day! The complex was great and my nephew spent plenty of time in the pool. The people that either lived in Alabama or were just vacationing there were some of the nicest people you will meet. Five days was just not enough time! I certainly hope to book this place again...and hopefully sooner than later!

Best Location on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area for many years now and Royal Palms has become our favorite place to stay. Because of its location right next to the state park beach and within walking distance of the fishing pier it is the perfect location for fishing or just relaxing on the beach. Charlie and his daughter Candace are great to work with and give you a much more pleasant and personal experience than dealing with one of the big real estate brokerages. On our last visit we had the pleasure of getting to meet Charlie in person and he is a very charming and gracious host who made us feel very welcome. He is also an avid fisherman who is always willing to share advice and tips and swap some great fishing stories. His condo is always clean and well maintained and perfectly situated for a great view of the gulf and the beach. The balcony is perfect for everything from morning dolphin watching to enjoying evening cocktails and sunsets. We will hopefully be continuing to return here for many years yet to come and Charlie will always be our first choice.

This place is wonderful! My Family and I have stayed here the past 2 years, and are in the process of scheduling this year. Charlie is great! I would recommend this place for anyone looking to spend some time on the beach, or even better the Pier fishing! Charlie is top notch, gave me great advice for fishing!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo October 2013 for the Shrimp Festival. The condo is on the 3rd floor which is a great level, definatly high enough to get an excellent ocean view and even hear the waves on the balcony, we saw dolphins almost every day, they even did a show for us jumping out of the water at times.

This condo is a corner unit which I like, is nice to have a view out of all of the windows! You have the fishing pier to the left which is well within walking distance if you like to fish. The kitchen was well stocked and provided everything we needed. The owner, Charlie was very understanding about the Tropical Storm that was headed that way during our trip, but thankfully wasn't an issue for us.

We will definately stay at this condo the every time we go to the beach if it's available. Finally found "the one" we would like to continue to use on our future trips to the gulf. Excellent rating!

Thank you Charlie :-)
