About Rick Kieffer

My wife and I live in McKinney Texas and we are both Realtors. We discovered the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores/Orange Beach several years ago and love it so much that we decided to make it our vacation destination. Royal Palms has become our place to enjoy the beach and make wonderful memories and we hope you make it yours as well.

Rick Kieffer purchased this condo in 2016

Why Rick Kieffer chose Gulf Shores

It is close to the State Park and pier so beach is never crowded and the building has great amenities including an indoor pool, sauna and exercise room.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. Close to the pier, walking distance to the Hangout and all the festivals.

Perfect condo - perfect beach - perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was as advertised and more. The Royal Palms is a nice size property - large enough to have nice amenities but not so large as to be crowded and loud. It is also in a great location - easy to get to through the state park and the beach is next to the state park so there is room to get away from the crowds if you want. The condo was perfect for the two of us. The bed was comfortable, the living area was well laid out and the balcony has the best furniture of any I’ve ever stayed in. We especially loved the recliner and the large coffee table (perfect for 1000 piece puzzle!). Didn’t do much cooking, but everything was there if I’d wanted to. I recommend the beach service - so glad they are still operating in September. And I love the beach decor! Thanks so much, Rick, for a great week!

While you’re there, you must eat at Desotos at Gulf Shores and Wolf Bay in Orange Beach.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great vacation in Gulf Shores! This condo is very clean, beautifully decorated and super comfortable! Rick is quick to respond and very informative. Royal Palms was not too big and not too noisy. Quiet, speedy elevators and all outdoor amenities were clean and well kept. September is a perfect time to visit Gulf Shores and this is a great condo to use. This one is on my favorites list!

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has it all! Quiet , uncrowded beaches and amazing views from the balcony. White sandy, clean beach and clear water. We enjoyed watching the dolphins and nightly storms roll out to the Gulf of Mexico. The condo was plenty roomy for our family of 4...( 2 adults, 2 kids ages 9 & 10).Pull out couch was a nice addition to sleep on as well. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking your own food. Washer dryer in unit as well. We are "fan sleepers" so the bathroom fans at night was a bonus! Highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed!

Easy to get anywhere and we visited Fort Morgan which is only 30 min away. Took the ferry to Dauphin Island as well. Both locations are beautiful!

Thanks again and we already miss it!

Condo was very clean. Perfect location, un-crowded beach. Common areas are a bit dated.
