Royal Palms is located in the East Beach area of Gulf Shores, Alabama just a couple of hundred yards from the great fishing locale – Gulf State Park fishing pier. King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and Skipjack are some of the most frequently caught fish along with Whiting and Pompano. Popular saltwater species such as Flounder, Redfish and Speckled Trout are three types of good edible fish and the occasional Cobia is caught in the Spring. Shark fishing is prohibited and we’ve seen tarpon caught from the Gulf Shores pier. The State Park is just across the street from the pier and is better known for its numerous nature trails, campgrounds, picnic areas and recreational water activities on Lake Shelby.
The Royal Palms is close to plenty of Gulf Shores area attractions and a short walk to the Gulf Shores Hangout at exactly one mile or a 15-20 minute walk. All of this coupled with great floor plans and a good selection of amenities, makes Royal Palms a wonderful spot to spend a week at the beach for a family vacation or as an investment property as these units are considered one of Gulf Shores’ better rental properties. Some other great area attractions close to Royal Palms include The Wharf and Amphitheater which is approximately 10-15 minutes away and FloraBama located about the same distance. The Gulf Shores Zoo, Waterville, the Track and most area restaurants are only about 10 minutes, at most, from Royal Palms condominium.
The Royal Palms has an outdoor Gulf-front pool connected to an indoor heated pool with a swim-thru connection on the east side of the building. The “Snowbirds” love this feature which is nice to have in the Winter months and keeps Royal Palms busy with off-season rentals. Other amenities include a sauna / steam room, hot tub / spa, exercise room, BBQ area, beach walkover and covered parking for those unusual days when rain is in the forecast. Royal Palms floor plans range in size from the 600 to 900 square feet and are available in one and two bedroom units. A great feature of Royal Palms is the bunk beds which sit in the hallways of some of the units and offer additional sleeping accommodations. This additional space really helps to boost rental revenue and owners see more repeat business with more sleeping space. The condo is the last tower as you leave Gulf Shores driving in to Orange Beach, Alabama and has nothing impeding views to the east, making the sunrise a treat for the early birds. Whether you are looking for a place at the beach for a week or looking for an investment property/second home, Royal Palms is a great place to get away from commutes, large crowds, and traffic while enjoying the beautiful white-sandy beaches and emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico in Gulf Shores Alabama.
