Goin' Coastal #2 at Alabama's Premier Family Beach Resort

Bedrooms 2
Space 775 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

Fantastic Gulf View with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and plenty of room!

Enjoy your morning coffee on our third floor balcony overlooking the beautiful emerald gulf. With tile floors, flat screen TVs and updated furnishings, this is the best value on the beach. Goin' Coastal #2 sleeps six; two master suites with queen beds and baths along with a queen sleeper sofa. Seven pools to choose from including a picturesque beach front pool, a heated indoor pool with sauna, steam room, and hot tub make this the perfect year round resort. Tired of swimming? Enjoy a tennis match under the lights or a quick game of pick-up basketball on one of our courts near the shuffleboard and horseshoe area. When you turn down our drive you'll notice Alabama's number one rated golf course, Kiva Dunes adjoins our property. Not to mention the beautiful sugar white beach that is only steps away!

The beach to our east is protected and undeveloped for one mile and the beach to the west features single family homes, including the most expensive mansions on the gulf coast of Alabama. If you are a beach person and want to experience what it was like before the onslaught of cement high-rises and crowded beaches, then this is the place for you. The locals call it the old Key West feel, a friend referred to it as The Hampton's on the gulf. You'll call it relaxing and the best time you've had at the beach!

About Robin Shaw

Growing up in Alabama, we always looked forward with great anticipation to our vacations on the Gulf Coast. From the time I was a young boy, my dream was to own a condo on my favorite beach. That became a reality in 2014 when I purchased Goin' Coastal. As luck would have it, the very next year I moved to Washington State. Now I'm enjoying it through the experiences of the families that stay at my home, creating memories that last forever. It's a pleasure for me to be a small part of your life, even for just a few days.

Robin Shaw purchased this condo in 2014

Why Robin Shaw chose Alabama

Why this property? It starts with the beach. You can stay anywhere on the Alabama/Florida gulf coast and the water will be a beautiful emerald green and the sand will look like drifting snow. The question comes down to how many people do you want on the beach with you, stopped at the light in front of you and in line at the convenience store? Our resort has one mile of undeveloped and protected beach to the east and the most expensive single family homes on the Alabama Coast to the west. Even during the busiest time of the year it will feel like you've got the place to yourself! If you're a "beach" person and love the old Key West feel, then you've found your home. If you're a "beach town" person and want one cement high rise after another and all that goes with it, well that's what staying in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores is all about. Our guests prefer driving in to enjoy it and leaving it behind when they want to relax.

What makes this condo unique

Surrounded by 7,000 acres of National Wildlife Refuge and miles of protected beaches you'll experience what drew native Americans to this peninsula a thousand years before the Spanish discovered the area in 1500. You'll look out on the gulf and see where Admiral Farragut spoke his famous words, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" And unlike the native Americans or sailors, you can enjoy our indoor pool facility which includes a sauna, hot tub and steam room in case it rains.

Great stay on the beach in Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan

  • 5 of 5

Robin was an exceptional host with Goin' Coastal #2! Nice updates in this 2 bedroom/2 bath with a view of the beach from the terrace. Great amenities; on site restaurant, multiple pools, direct beach access, tennis courts, etc. We had our car battery die and was able to call security and someone came to help us jump the car within 10 minutes! Robin made herself available if anything came up that we needed. Would definitely rent here again and with Robin!

Beautiful Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at Gulf Shores Plantation before and this by far was the nicest condo we've stayed in! The decor is fresh and modern and very clean. The kitchen has just about everything you will need. If you use the pull out sofa I would suggest brining a mattress pad.

The condo is in a great location on the property. Very close walk to the beach, pool and indoor pool/exercise room. The owners are wonderful - checking in with us to make sure everything was ok and leaving goodies for everyone in the family upon our arrival!
