very nice condo conveniant to everything in gulf shores i would recommend it only draw back id i wish it washer and dryer in condo. Decorated very nice real comfortable.
Thanks for your review! We are glad to know you enjoyed Southern Sands 102, the location, and decor. Thanks for your comments. The plus side of having the washer and dryer facility on each floor is more room ++ inside the condo! We look forward to host another stay for you in the future.
This was our first time as a family to visit Gulf Shores - we usually go to Destin. So thankful for Sybil, who answered the 800 number on my paperwork b/c there was no one in the Gulf Sands office at 5:55 (closed at 6) when I called to get instructions on check in. (The next day the email and voice mail came through on my cell phone, instructing us that they were closing early and where to find our keys!) Also, being our first time visiting Royal Palms, were not informed of where to park to unload (fyi - you have to take the carts out to the parking lot for loading/unloading). We were without cable tv for two days - maintenance came around and reset the tv's, but left our condo UNLOCKED! when they left. There is no front desk to go to for assistance, just a phone number. The den needs more comfortable seating or at least another chair. Even though this condo "sleeps 6", it's not large enough for a family of 4! It does have a coffee pot - even though the description says only a Keurig (brought ours from home to be safe). The beach was great - not crowded; the chairs/umbrellas are big and sturdy. Loved the large table and chairs on the balcony!
Thanks for your review. We did close early on Sunday, May 28, at 4:00 PM, as we had completed tasks for the day and it was Memorial Weekend. We have instructions for after hours arrivals which we completed by leaving you a voicemail and emailing you instructions as that is protocol and delivered successfully. Sybil was aware of your after hours arrival plus all others.
Parking information is located on Page 2 of your check-in packet. Thanks for your comments, we will add wording that the complimentary luggage carts, located by the elevators, will need to be brought to the guest's vehicle to load / unload.
Royal Palms was in the process of upgrading the cable throughout the building. We are not part of the HOA Building Maintenance but have logged your comment about the cable company technician.
Royal Palms is a condominium complex and does not have a front desk. We provide all our contact information on our website, when reserving, and in the vacation rentals we manage.
The condo is approx 676 sq ft and we appreciate your feedback. The description notes the condo has a Keurig Coffee Maker (it does not say 'only'). We will update it to add that a regular coffee maker is available as well. We provide the complimentary filters for guest use. If you have any questions prior to check-in or during your stay, please give us a call or send us an email so that we can relay any information to you.
Thanks for your comments and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores.
This was our first vacation to the beach, and it was perfect. The condo was very clean, well stocked with everything we could need, and decorated beautifully. Loved the easy beach access and views from the end balconys. We will definetly be using gulf sands rentals for our vacation next year!
What a great week we had with our best friends of many years! The Plantation is an awesome complex,with so many amenities.The pristine beaches and palm trees are gorgeous! Great view of the Gulf of Mexico from this unit! Amazing Sunsets,and two great Restaurants on site.Our favorite place for several years now!
One we decided to spend our 16th wedding anniversary at the beach, I knew to contact Gulf Sands. We have tried other rental companies in the past but once we found Gulf Sands we were hooked. The reservation process is easy and the staff is always so friendly. Our condo was very clean and nicely decorated. The view from the balcony every morning was breathtaking. We will definitely stay at Seacrest 405 again!
Thanks for the great review and congratulations! We are glad to know you enjoyed Seacrest 405 and the view. Your feedback is much appreciated. We look forward to host your next getaway!
Great rental! We were very pleased and would definitely stay there again.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we are so glad we ventured there from Minnesota. The beachy decor of the condo created a casual atmosphere and the unit was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. These are the main things that make a stay great. Comfort and Clean. We ate all our in room meals on our balcony which provided us with astoundingly beautiful ocean views. We are very glad we chose Unit 704 at Seacrest.
My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in this unit. We were able to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation during the week. The unit is well equipped and the weather cooperated for us as most days were sunny and highs between 75-80 degrees. The only concern we experienced was some hallway maintenance being done on the building during our stay, so there was some construction noise (hammer drill) from time to time. On Thursday morning the hammer drill was running right outside our front door at 6:30 AM.....that wasn't nice! Overall, we'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Parking was fine, the pool was great, the beach was awesome! This was our first trip to Gulf Shores, so we were happy with our experience.
From the moment we checked in we knew it was going ro be a vreat experience. The young lady at the desk was super friendly and explained everything clearly. We got in the room which was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. The whole unit was nice. Our unit blacojt faved the beach and was an amazing view. Parking was easy, beach access was great along with the pool. There was a grocery store right across the street which was a major conveinence becaise we forgot several things. The only bad thing i would have to add is that i wish there was a broom in the room so we could sweep. Being therd for 5 days without a broom was hard because of fhe sand and stuff fhat got on the floor. We have 4 kids with us. You could only imagine. Lol. Oh, and our key somehow broke off into the door while we were tring to open it and the maintenNce guy was fhefe within 30 mins to fix it for us and get us back in our room. We will defonotely be coming back to the harbor house or may try another gulf sands location but we really enjoyed harbor house. Cleanliness, location, everything. Thank you for allowing us to share our spring break with you guys. It was gfeat.
The condo was in a very convenient location. Great beach access.Parking was a little difficult as lot was small and probally not made for larger SUVs and trucks.I was very surprised to find the swimming pool right under the balcony. You could not see it in the photos. We were awaken every morning between 7 and 7:30 by the people cleaning the pool. Their machines were loud, they talked loud, And then came the children. I'm glad they had a good time but sitting on the balcony was not pleasant. Many nights there were people at the pool after 10:00.The kitchen was very basic. It would have been nice to have cleaning supplies for pot & pans.
