About Robin Shaw

We've been vacationing here for years and now we live just down the beach from this resort. My wife is from Michigan and I was raised in Iowa. We have grown children in Wisconsin, Georgia and Alabama that love to come with their families to this special place on the beach. We have two condo's at Plantation East that we've completely remodeled. We use them for family and rent to guests that are a 'a bit more particular' about where they stay' as my Southern Grandmother used to say. In addition to this unit, we have a roomy two bedroom condo in building two VRBO Listing #612777 Because we live here, we enjoy being a resource to our guests. We can tell you where to find just about anything, including where to fish.

Robin Shaw purchased this condo in 2014

Why Robin Shaw chose Gulf Shores

This unit is all about the spectacular million dollar view from the balcony. We completely remodeled and redecorated the entire unit this fall (14). Now the inside is as amazing as the view! You won't find a better family oriented resort anywhere on the beach and when you want a 'couples get-a-way' there isn't a more perfect hide-a-way than Boat Drinks!

What makes this condo unique

Only 20 units at this resort have a similar private view of the beach, but none have the first class accommodations! And only Plantation East guests enjoy a heated indoor pool and hot tub.

Wonderful, perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Robin for sharing your lovely condo with us! It was perfect for our anniversary! Loved all the decor and the coziness of the condo. Both the sunrise and sunset were gorgeous from the balcony! Nice place to relax and enjoy a bottle of champagne for our anniversary! Really enjoyed the indoor pool and spa. Outdoor pool area very nice as well. Beach was quiet and peaceful...of course it is november but i imagine in peak season it's probably still nice because it's at the quiet end of gulf shores. Thanks for all the restaurant suggestions, enjoyed several on the list. You might want to add Island Wing Co...it was excellent. And if you feel like cooking, the dry aged steaks from Rouses market are amazing! Again thanks for a wonderful trip and making our 25th so special! We would love to come again!

  • 5 of 5

Robin was so nice and easy to work with! She truly cared about us ...and made us feel so welcome! We were there during Hurricane Nate and her and her husband were so quick to react to any needs or questions we had! The condo was perfect for our anniversary trip. It’s newly remodeled, decorated very nicely and kept extremely clean! Located so close to the pool, the restaurant, laundry room and of course the beach! I absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation with no worries!!!

Condo was newly remodeled. My boys loved the bunk beds and the close access to the pool and beach

  • 5 of 5

Robin waa excellent. She left a gift baskets upon arrival and answered ant questions I had. Her husband recommended Ton Top to eat. It was a bit of a drive there but worth it. Loved the quiet beach. My husband took the kids to the pool and I could sit on the balcony and watch them if I wanted to. Perfect location. We will be back.

great little condo right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Boat Drinks! It was perfect for our family. We have two boys, ages six and three, and I think the highlight of their trip was the bunk beds. Robin, the owner, was super attentive and provided us with all kids of helpful information about the area. We would love to come back next year!

Located on a narrow pennensula and overlooking the beach, this condo is close enough to the action, but far enough away to provide the kind of resort privacy you're looking for.
