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.

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!

Boat Drinks is a very well maintained property. The view it offers is fantastic.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay!! Robin was very helpful and hospitable! She left us a very nice gift basket with goodies for our boys and us!! Boat Drinks was clean and updated and very conveniently located to the pool and beach! The only reason I am leaving 4 stars is that it was a little smaller than I expected for the 4 of us and maybe I missed that in the description. It accommodated us well sleeping wise but we were kinda on top of each other during the day hanging out or eating. However, I did see the inside of a few other condos and I'll say this, I WOULD NOT have exchanged their more space and view of the parking lot for our limited space and view of the beautiful water especially at night! Thank you Robin! Our vacation was relaxing and memorable!

This is the second year I've stayed at Boat Drinks. I wasn't disappointed. Very clean, updated condo, Robin is most attentive to renters needs. The area in Fort Morgan is much quieter then Gulf Shores but still has everything a vacationer needs. Great beaches, great restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to rent with Robin again.

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.
