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 Alabama

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.

Great views! Nice updated condo. Perfect for two people.

Kitchen sink was small. No lighting above the sink or stove for doing tasks. A fan in the bedroom would've been nice to have as well. We liked everything else. A great place to stay!

We enjoyed the condo, especially the view of the gulf from the balcony. A quiet, relaxing spot.

Well-stocked condo, nice outdoor pools, indoor pool and hot tub. Loved the beach which allowed for long walks every day. A plus was the Blue Angel pilot flying right outside the window.

Boat Drinks!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Boat Drinks! The condo was wonderful, the view spectacular! Morning coffee on the balcony was amazing. I needed to add a couple extra days and Robin was very accommodating. I received a couple calls from Robin to make sure everything was going well. It was nice that she called as she did provide some local directions to points of interest and things to see that were not your typical tourist attractions. I will stay there again!! Thank you!!

We had a great time for our first time in Gulf Shores! The condo had an excellent view, was very clean, and had everything that we needed! Robin was very quick to respond and was there with advice for anything we needed! They even had a gift basket for us when we arrived, that was so very thoughtful! This is a great place, and you will not regret renting it!! Thanks for an excellent home away from home!

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.
