Exceptional    Jul 13, 2019

This condo is the absolute best in Gulf Shores! The updated kitchen and master bath make it even better. We brought our 80 year young mother on this trip for her first visit to the beach ever. She was thrilled! She loved the views and being on the quiet part of the beach. Thank you so much for having such a beautiful place to stay and the perfect location. If anyone is looking for a place to stay in Gulf Shores look no further, you won't be disappointed. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We love having you back every year and so glad you enjoyed your trip with mom! See y’all next year! Brian and Tracy

Kristi Leonard

Fantastic Vacation    Jul 06, 2019

This condo didn't disappoint! It was decorated beautifully, very clean and very comfortable. The owners were very responsive and we can't wait to stay at their condo in the future!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your week! We can’t wait to have you back! Brian and Tracy


Perfect Location & Beautiful    Jun 29, 2019

Brian & Tracy's condo was beautiful inside and out. The view from the balcony and master bedroom were amazing. We were lucky to enough to stay over the July 4th holiday and sat on the balcony with the best view of the fireworks from the pier. It was amazing! The condo is very clean and equipped with all the necessities. Making the arrangements for the trip with Tracy was so easy and she was a pleasure to work with. I recommend this condo with no reservation. I was so impressed with everything and enjoyed a wonderful vacation/honeymoon.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

Congratulations again on your beach wedding and thank you for renting with us! We have to agree that we have some of the best views of the Gulf from the master bedroom and balcony! Hope to host you again! Brian and Tracy


Relaxation!    Jun 23, 2019

I can not say enough about how great our stay was in this condo! My husband, 5 year old daughter, mother, and myself spent an awesome week here! The location is the best—location on the beach, on the strip, and the complex! Tracy was so kind and easy to work with! She was so accommodating and thoughtful in all our interaction. We hope to book the same week next year very soon! I highly recommend this condo and Sommertime Beach Bums!!! Oh, and I almost forgot—the views from ALL the windows are amazing! The picture attached is from The master bedroom on our last day! What a wonderful promise!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and better yet that you celebrated your daughter’s birthday here! We can’t wait to host you again! Brian and Tracy

John & Roxie

Our 'Happy Place' for Escape.    Jun 15, 2019

First I'd like to say what incredible updates the Sommer's made to the kitchen. Completely new layout, counter tops, and room. Well done! This is by far our favorite condo in GS. It's on the end of the 'strip' and out of heavier traffic near the center. One of the other reviews mentions the comfort of the beds. I have to agree! This is really important for us when we travel. I can't say enough good things about this place but more importantly, working with Brian & Tracy. Thank you!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We love having you as guests every year and hope we can continue the “tradition”. We agree, the beds are the most comfortable as any bed you would have at your own home! Can’t wait to have you back again in a September 2019! Brian and Tracy

Aimee Vine

Perfect vacation!    Jun 10, 2019

This was the perfect vacation for the family. It was just the right location, in the center of everything. There was not any other place that would have been a better location. The condo was absolutely beautiful! Everything was super clean and so nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook meals for the family. The view was amazing from the balcony and all of the windows. I couldn't have been more pleased with Tracy, the owner. She was incredibly helpful and very personable. I can't wait to stay here again!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation! We can’t wait to have you back!


Best view by far    May 22, 2019

We had such an amazing stay here. Usually condos are stacked right by each other but this one is on the end so there isn't a big condo blocking your view and it is a lot less crowded. The beds were SO comfortable which is huge for us because you never know if a bed is going to be comfy. We slept amazing and I also loved how they have a fan for each room because we sleep with fans at home. I can't say enough about how nice the owners are. I feel like we became friends through this stay. Tracy gave me a great tips on what to do while we were there. I suggest checking out Alligator Alley for sure! My kids loved the movies and board games that were available at the condo. I could go on an on. Perfect place to stay!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and can’t wait to have you back!

Spectacular Views    Mar 24, 2019

If you want breath taking views then this condo is a must. From the bedroom you get the ocean and city lights and the views from the balcony are just as spectacular. Condo is very clean and well equipped for cooking. Best of all it’s in walking distance of my favorite restaurant—- Sea n Suds. Hopefully I will be able to return soon.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We also love the short walk on the beach to Sea N Suds! Looking forward to having you back! Tracy and Brian

The Knapp's

this condo is the best!    Mar 16, 2019

Royal Palms is our favorite place to stay in Gulf Shores; it is the perfect location as it is close to the pier, restuarants, & shopping. This condo in Royal Palms is ideal as it is an end unit w/ wonderful views & beautiful décor. Tracy & Brian are very caring owners & wonderful to work with! We are already looking forward to returning next year!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

Thank you so much and we can’t wait to have you back! Tracy and Brian


No title    Mar 15, 2019

I’ve written a review before but just have to compliment Brian and Stacy on the way they continue to keep their condo in perfect shape. We just rented from them for the tenth year and are never disappointed. Clean, bright, lovely condo.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We have enjoyed having you every single year! Thank you always for the kind words!


Ms    Feb 15, 2019

This condo is fantastic! It is spacious, very comfortable as well as beautiful. It is very clean and nicely decorated with just the right amount of beach decor. I loved the new granite counter tops and cabinets. This condo has the best location —close to good restaurants within walking distance, and the view of the beach is awesome as well as the spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The owners are extremely caring in making sure I had everything I needed and very personable! I have stayed there twice now and hope to stay again in the future.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you were able to come back and spend another stay with us! We love our repeat renters and welcome you back anytime! Tracy and Brian

Heavenly Haven    Oct 06, 2018

From the moment we opened the door to the penthouse, we were met with beautiful vistas of the beach! The sunsets and sunrises were equally breathtaking. Walking to local restaurants and the annual shrimp festival was perfect! The bike trails were scenic and shady and so unique with the wooden bridges. We felt like the red carpet was rolled out for us....the only disappointment was having to leave...but we are already planning our next trip to the Sommer’s getaway!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you had a fantastic time and equally happy that Hurricane Michael did not spoil your week! We look forward to having you back! Brian and Tracy

Michelle H.

A must stay!    Sep 22, 2018

The owners were the best to work with and the condo location was great!  The view was awesome!  The condo had everythign we needed for a great week getaway!  I will be planning another trip here fore sure.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We agree that the views from the inside of the condo and outside on the patio are the best! Can't wait to have you back! Tracy and Brian

John Bush

Prime Location and Beautiful Condo    Sep 08, 2018

I recently took my wife to Gulf Shores for the week of her birthday. We've frequented Gulf Shores for several years but, I have to say this condo is by far the best! The pictures in this listing are great, but they do not do it justice. The unit is extremely well decorated and up to date. The detail put into supplying the accommodation is amazing, right down to a supply of 'chip-clips' in the pantry! The views are incredible. Having the end unit affords you with a beautiful view down the beach. Sunsets are panoramic from the balcony, as well as, the living room. The building property is well maintained with great amenities. During our stay they were building an area for grilling. Great idea! Brian and Tracy are absolutely wonderful to work with. We met them on the beach during a previous visit. When I began planning this week for my wife, I contacted Tracy. Her reply was fast. I shared with Tracy the purpose for this trip. They made sure we had a memorable experience. I can't thank them enough. Great condo, great owners, great location! If that's what you're looking for, you've found.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

John and Roxie, We are so happy you choose to stay with us to help celebrate Roxie's 29th (ha!) birthday! We are so glad you enjoyed the condo and everything the location has to offer! We can't wait to have you back! Tracy and Brian

Toni C

Amazing Vacation Destination    Aug 17, 2018

The end penthouse condo is amazing! The amenities are spot on and we didn't want for anything. The condo is beautifully decorated and the large windows provide spectacular views of the beach. We were able to spend quiet mornings and evenings on the balcony overlooking the ocean with gorgeous skies. The beach area is less crowded as the condo is next to a State park. This is our 3rd year here and we always look forward to coming back. Tracy is wonderful to work with and makes sure that you have all the information needed. Thanks Tracy and Brian for sharing your piece of heaven with us!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We love having you and your family back every year! Look forward to next year!


Great vacation location!    Jul 21, 2018

My family loves the Gulf Shore area. This year we traveled with friends that were looking for a quieter, less busy location. This site was perfect for that. The condo complex is the last complex before the Gulf State Park which results in a less busy beach! When I’m choosing a specific condo to stay in I go through A LOT of pictures because I look for a clean beachy feel! This condo is immaculate and decorated to perfection! It was calming and relaxing! And the views!!! Being in the end penthouse condo was amazing! The large windows in each room along with the balacony allowed a nonstop view of the Gulf shore! The kids loved the pools and they too were never over crowded. The men felt it was a perfect location for golfing and was within 20 min of multiple beautiful golf courses. All of our favorite restaurants and shops were within 15 minutes from the condo as well! I would recommend a stay here without hesitation! Thanks so much Tracy and Brian for exceeding our expectations!!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We agree that the location is the BEST! We welcome you and your family back anytime! Tracy and Brian

Michelle H.

Highly Suggest for a vacation stay!    Jul 13, 2018

The condo was perfect for our vacation! It was very clean and perfect location! The beach wasn’t too crowded! Thank you so much Tracy for sharing your vacation home with us! I plan to come back next year!!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

Thank you! You could have chosen anywhere to stay for your vacation! We look forward to having you back! Tracy and Brian

The Capuzzos

Wonderful stay!!    Jul 08, 2018

This condominium is beautiful and the complex is wonderful! Never had a problem finding a parking place. Elevators were always available within just a few minutes. The beach was not crowded and the folks we rented the chairs and umbrella from were very polite and helpful. Inside was exactly the right size for my family of five. The beds are so comfortable and the room darkening shades were terrific for an afternoon nap. Each room is decorated beautifully and in a relaxing way. We found everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking breakfast and fixing lunch. Being at the end of the building provided views of the most gorgeous sunset God created each night. The washer and dryer are an added bonus. We came home with all clean clothes. No large heap of vacation laundry to do!! Tracy and Brian were great. I received very quick responses to all my questions before, during and after our stay. The kids and I can't wait to go back again. It is located in the perfect area to eat at all the seafood restaurants in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores with only a short drive to Fort Morgan, too. There are a large number of fast food chain restaurants in the area also. You will not be disappointed staying in this condominium for the Summers. :)

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you and the family had a wonderful stay! We look forward to having you back! Brian and Tracy

Michelle Peters

Three-peat at our fave condo (:    Jul 01, 2018

Last week was our third year in a row staying in this lovely condo. We are always pleased. Beds are super comfy, kitchen well stocked, nicely decorated and a great supply of books, games and movies (Headbanz game was our daughters' favorite this year). Being the end unit is awesome because having windows all along the side of the condo really opens it up. Of course our favorite thing about this condo has to be the location. It is the last building before the pier. We go 4th of July week every year and when we look down the beach it is SO CROWDED - but not at our end - it really is the best thing about it. And Tracy is great to work with - she is great at communication and makes sure everything is satisfactory once we get there. I would recommend this condo to anyone. Looking at the pics here on the site is making me miss it already (:

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We love having you every year and our so glad you always choose to come back every year! So glad you had another great trip! Hope to have you again next year!?!?! Tracy and Brian

The Vinars

Great Place!    Jun 23, 2018

We have stayed here 2 years in a row. Great condo that has everything you need! The condo is nicely decorated and clean! (I know I was very particular when looking for a place that had been updated recently) The owners are wonderful and were available whenever we needed them. We loved having the 2nd bedroom for the kids with the full bed bunks, instead of just a hallway bunk set-up! We loved the location, close to everything but not right in the middle of everything. We loved that we could just walk out and find a spot on the beach or the pool without fighting the crowds!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We LOVE having you and the boys back every year! Thanks for allowing us to share our piece of paradise with you! Tracy and Brian

The McDaniels

Family Beach Vacation    Jun 05, 2018

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful condo. The views from all the windows were amazing! The condo was very clean and well decorated. The beds were very comfortable and was a big plus for us. When you go on vacation it’s nice to have a good nights rest on a comfortable bed. Even the bunk beds were very soft. The Sommers were great to work with and very hospitable. Thank you for a lovely place to stay.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

We are so glad you and your family had a good time and we too think the beds are very COMFY!! Look forward to having you back!! Tracy and Brain

Cecelia Norwood

Spring Break Blessing    Mar 24, 2018

This condo was exceptionally clean and had all the amenities we were looking for. The kitchen was supplied with all the items needed for cooking and serving meals and snacks. Tracy was great to work with on scheduling and working out the contract. It was very convenient to have the keyless entry and thoughtful to have beach chairs available to take to the beach. We really enjoyed the beach themed decor and comfortable beds. Would definitely stay here again.

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

Cecelia, We welcome you and your family back anytime! We are so glad you enjoyed the condo as much as we do! Tracy and Brian

Mary M.

Snowbirds    Mar 20, 2018

We have stayed at this condo for seven weeks every year since 2009. Obviously, it is just what we want. It is always clean and perfectly maintained, with new appliances and furnishings. We especially like the windows facing west. Beautiful sunsets. The master bedroom has a very comfortable, king size bed--something you seldom find in condos. It helps that the owners use this condo--they make sure it is perfect! (Another big plus.). Brain and Stacy are always available if you have a question or forgetting the door code!!!?? Always hate leaving!

Tracy and Brian Sommers's reply:

Mary and Vern. We always enjoy having you and the kind words you leave behind! We look forward to your upcoming stays EVERY year! Thanks again!

Kim G.

Perfect location    Oct 08, 2017

The condo is exactly as described, beautiful ocean views and the perfect location to relax and enjoy the beach.

Katie G.

Great condo with a beautiful view and excellant location!    Jul 16, 2017

The condo is located right on
the beach and has everything you need for a vacation stay.  Balcony has a great view and room for 4-5 people to hang out.  TV in all of the rooms with wi-fi access.  Condo is located near restaurants and close to several other attractions.  Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Gulf Shores!

Michelle P.

Perfect!    Jul 02, 2017

Our second trip to this property was just as wonderful as the the first!  It is perfect and I would own it myself (please see my review from last summer for all the specifics).  This is the only place we have made a repeat visit to-and would be happy to visit again ;) and Tracy isultra-helpfull!!

Julie V.

Exactly what we wanted    Jun 24, 2017

Everything was clean and what we were
expecting, decorated nicely.  Rooms were spacious, kitchen is a little small but worked and had everything we needed.  Master bed is super soft, but we are used to extra firm, but wasn't a big deal in the end.  View is great, really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony.  No wait for elevators, always a plus!  Owner were great to work with.  Would definitely stay again!

Tony B.

Awesome!    Jun 02, 2017

We have rented many nice VBRO properties, but this is without a doubt the best property we have ever visited.  The building is in between the end of a row of condominiums and a state park with a fishing pier, so there is plenty of beach to enjoy.  You can bring your own beach chairs and umbrella or rent them there as well (which includes set up and take down each day).  The indoor and outdoor pools are situated nicely and well maintained.  The unit itself is beautifully decorated without being cluttered, includes every amenity, and is quite spacious.  The master bedroom bed was incredibly comfortable.  I travel with an air mattress due to back problems, but did not need to use it on this trip.  Finally the owners are professional and genuinely care about the comfort of their guests.  I would highly recommend this property for your next stay at Gulf Shores- a definite 5 stars!

Toni C.

This place is a gem in Gulf Shores!    May 19, 2017

The Penthouse is tastefully decorated and the accommodiations are very comfortable.  The kitchen is well stocked with all the normal utensils and gadgets to make a quick lunch or a full dinner.  We enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony with a wonderful view of the ocean.  There are several restaurants within walking distance and nearby grocery stores a short drive away making this place the perfect vacation spot.  We think there is something magical about this place...we can't wait to return!!

Charlotte C.

Beautiful!    Apr 03, 2017

The condo was perfect for our family

of five!  The kids loved having the bigger bunk beds and their own TV for watching morning cartoons.  The kitchen had everything we needed for eating in and because this is a corner unit the views were spectacular in every room!  The biggest selling point was that this is at the end of the beach and is the last condo which means less crowds on your side of the beach.  Tracy was great!  She made herself available from the start to any questions or concerns we had.  Thanks you for a wonderful stay!-

Leslie K.

Relaxing, Beautiful and Great location    Mar 25, 2017

This condo is beautiful with a gorgeous view!  Me and my husband and 2 daughters ages 11 and 15 had a wonderful time.  The beachside are not crowded and very family oriented.  There are alot of good places to eat all in walking distance.  The owners are by far the best to work with, ready to help you with anything or any question.  We love the condo and are hoping to return for spring break!

Mary M.

This is our second year in 1308 at Royal Palms. The condo is in excellent condition    Feb 01, 2017

Beacuse the owners use their condo themselves, they care about keeping it up and decorating it in a most inviting way.  They have put in all new appliances.  The building is located on the beach, close to the fishing pier, with both heated indoor poll and hot tub.

Pat L.

Magnificent Month!    Jan 03, 2017

My stay was excellent!!  The condo was very comfortable clean and relaxing.  The views, sunrises and sensets--incredible! I would recommend this condo and will stay again.  The owners are very friendly and grreat to work with- they want to make sure you have everything you need.  Great!!!

The Collins

GREAT Condo! Love the decor- view is amazing!    Oct 20, 2016

This is such a beautiful location on the beach.  A state park is on the east side of the building which gives you a feeling of seclusion on that side- with condos and more people on the west side.  The sunrises & sunsets are GORGEOUS.  The owners, Tracy & Brian, are so kind and great to work with!  They have redecorated this condo and it is very restful and soothing.  Beds are very comfortable.  Can't wait until we can come again!!!

Mindy C.

Awesome spot for a girls' trip!    Jul 16, 2016

This condo exceeded our expectations!  The view was incredible and the condo had everything we could ask for!  It is in walking distance to many restaurants and we also enjoyed driving into Orange Beach a few evenings too!  I would HIGHLY recommend this property!  I can't wait to go back!

We had a fanastic stay!  It was the perfect midpoint destination to meet family from Texas.  The condo was "homey" feeling.  The decor was classy, the furniture was comfortable and everything was nice and clean.  The view was great!  We enjoyed early moring and late evening balcony time with sunrise, sunset and peaceful sounds of the beach.  Pelicans greeted us with a fly by right off the balcony our first evening there!  It was very convenient to have a combo lock on the door so we didn't have to worry about a key.  The kitchen was well stocked.  Beds were comfy!  We loved that the second bedroom had double bunks instead of twin bunks.  Pensacola was a nice short drive to the Naval Museum.  We also enjoyed the indoor pool when the weather wasn't cooperative.  The owners are very friendly and great to work with!  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Loved this condo!! Would definitely rent again.    Jul 02, 2016

This condo was perfect!  Great things about this condo: *LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!  This building is the last one on the east end of the beach before the state park.  Made out beach not crowded at all (especially the 4th of July week) *Roomy- this layout was great and plenty of room for out family of 4 (with 2 teenage children) *Decor- beautiful, soothing, tasteful.  *Kitchen- my husband is the cook in our family and he said the way the kitchen was stocked was better then any other condo we had ever been in.  *Beds- all the beds are updated and very comfortable.  *Unit location- The condo is on the end of the building.  There is no one above you and no one to the right.  And because of this there are windows all on the side of this condo making it seem so much more roomy.  Makes the views of the sunsets from the balcony phenomenal!! *The owners- Tracy and Brian were great.  Tracy was great at responding to all of my questuions before and during the rental.  And I received our deposit back in a week.  Talking about it is making me want to go back.  You should have no concerns about renting this unit.  You will not be disappointed.  I think that this is the first time out whole family agreed that we wouuld definitely rent this condo again!  We love Gulf Shores- it is our fave.

Wonderful experience!    Apr 03, 2016

We had such a great time!  The penthouse was definitely the way to go!  The beds are really comfortable & we had plenty of room for all 5 of us!  The views are AMAZING from every room in the place!  Really enjoyed my morning coffee on the balcony, listening to the ocean...Can't wait to go back!  We will definitely be renting from Brian & Tracy from here on out!  :)

Beachcomber 5 star    Mar 20, 2016

Beachcombers at the Royal Palms is what you see is exactely what you get!  The condos view are beach front and are stunning of a complete aerial view of the whole beach since it sits up high on the corner your isolated and it's very private.  The condo is well eqipped of everything you need.  Very kid friendly and a large unit its very spacious for many guests.  It was very clean, quaint, and very homey with all the cute beachy decor!!   The owner Tracy was very helpful with all of our needs.  We plan on coming back to this unit and this unit only for every beach getaway...this was our very own piece of paradise we loved it!

We just arrived at the condo and were very pleased at how spacious and bright it is.  It has been newly painted and decorated.  Beautiful furnishings and accents.  We have done VBRO several times and this condo is far the nicest we have rented.  You can see the sunrise in the morning from the balcony and watch the sunset as you eat dinner.  The whole complex is clean and right on the beach.  Obviously, we made a great choice!
