4th of July beach vacation 2024    Jul 01, 2024

My family and I had a really good time here. The location was perfect! It was peaceful and not crowded. Another thing that we liked was how easy it was to get to the beach. You are right there! In addition, the weather was perfect. The owners were very responsive to any concerns. I highly recommend!

Gorgeous Views!    Jun 01, 2024

review star

This has to be the best place we've stayed at so far at the beach. The most gorgeous views and even though you are in the penthouse on top we never had to wait for the elevator. The condo had everything we needed inside. Also there was always open parking spaces for our vehicles. Thanks so much for a wonderful place to stay.

This is our second trip to Royal Palms but our first in The Sommers condo. This condo is fantasic. You can see the beach from every room. It is clean and updated. The kitchen has everything you could need. The beds are comfortable and large. The livingroom has recliner which my husband enjoyed. Tracy is so nice and quick to respond to communications. All around this is an excellent place to stay and we will 100% rent again.

Beautiful Condo With Stunning Views!    Jul 22, 2023

review star

We had the absolute best week at the Sommertime Beach Bums condo! The condo was immaculate and had everything we needed for the week. Everything was updated and beautiful in the condo. The views were phenomenal and you can see the ocean from every room. We used the beach service and had an umbrella and chairs waiting for us every day. The condo is located at the end of the beach so it was much less crowded than other parts of the beach. The kids loved both the indoor and outdoor pools. We even saw dolphins every morning from the patio! We absolutely 100% recommend staying here! It was heavenly!

Royal Palms 5 Stars    Jun 24, 2023

review star

We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 2008 and we love the Royal Palms! It really has the best location in Gulf Shores. Tracy and Brian’s condo is comfortable, very clean, well stocked and has excellent views from the balcony and the west facing windows. Tracy communicates before, during and after your visit. You can’t go wrong booking this condo. The new shower in the master bath is very nice and the addition of the sound machines in both bedrooms was a nice surprise this year. Thanks for sharing your beach home away from with us!

A Week at Gulfshores    Jun 10, 2023

review star

What a treasure!!! Our family of five enjoyed seven fabulous days at this condo. Everything was perfect. From excellent communication throughout the booking process to easy checkin/out. The condo has everything you need for your stay, plenty of space and breathtaking views!!! The beach is gorgeous and uncrowded. You are located close to everything, but far enough away for a peaceful, relaxing stay. The unit was clean and we had zero issues during our stay. Tracy was so helpful with quick responses to emails and providing all the information needed to checkin in a timely manner. Should we find ourselves having another Gulfshores vacation, we would definitely stay with Tracy and Brian again. Thank y’all so much for a wonderful stay and lots of sweet memories with our boys!!

This was our first time to Gulf Shores. The Sommers' rental was just as advertised and was conveniently located to restaurants, shops and of course ... the beach! The unit was clean and nicely decorated, and the views were incredible. The bed in the master bedroom was super comfy and everything was updated throughout. We appreciated the open communication before and after our stay. We highly recommend!

My wife and I have rented many condos over the years in Orange Beach , but this condo is by far one of the best we have ever rented. Traci and Brian were great to work with , very nice and efficient. I would rent this condo from then anytime . The view is wonderful , the condo was very clean and furnishings were top notch . We will back.
