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 Gulf Shores

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.

We had a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two boys (7 and 10) had a wonderful week. The condo was adorable... obviously recently renovated, and beautifully and tastefully decorated. We immediately felt right at home! We had everything we needed for a great family vacation right on property... the pool was steps away, as was the amazing beach. We completely fell in love with The Gulf Shores. Robin was wonderful to work with... she provided us with everything we needed and more. Upon arrival, we reported a lightbulb that was out, and it was fixed within the hour while we relaxed on the beach. We loved this family vacation... such a secluded destination, but close enough to restaurants and retail that you can get whatever you need! Thank you, Robin, for assuring our comfortable stay!

Property was very clean and updated. We had a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well maintained and everything you could need was available. The pool was perfect for our family because of the "kid" end with very shallow waters. The beach was easy to access and the view from the balcony each morning was lovely. We would definitely recommend this condo to others.

Despite the high winds from hurricane Harvey, property was beautiful and clean. The beach was impressive with the white sand. Pools were well maintained and large. Very family oriented.

We had one of the best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was super clean & has a convenient layout. It is nicely decorated with a hint of beach cottage feel to it. It was so comfortable it felt like home & we wanted to stay longer! Robin was fantastic to work with on booking & giving you all info you need to stay with extra touches of care in there. The complex is nicely kept & with only three floors elevator useage was a breeze!! There are two pools just steps away from this unit. We cooked almost all our meals with no problem. The wifi & cable work great with lots of channel options. We have been telling all our friends & family about this place!! Will definitely be back here again!!!
