Great Vacation at Gulf Shores Alabama!
This is the first year we have spent our vacation in Alabama. For the past 35 years we have gone to Destin and always had fun. I was a little nervous about changing places. But Gulf Shores was a wonderful surprise. You get the same beautiful beaches without the horrible crowds. The place we stayed at Perdido Key, was just across from the bay. We enjoyed boating as well as staying on the beach. You really feel like you are on a tropical island getting on the boat and stopping at the islands along the bay. I loved riding the boat out to dinner. Another great surprise was not having the umbrella next to me jammed right up to mine like in Destin. And the umbrellas were not 4 rows deep. This will be my new vacation spot. The Shopping is great with the wharf and outlet mall, the best restaurants you could want with short waits, and there are plenty of youth a
activities! I can't wait to return!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Orange Beach. Perdido Quay 601 is indeed in the perfect location, with close proximity to local restaurants and attractions, all without the crowds. Please keep Bender Realty in mind when you begin planning a return to Orange Beach!
There is so much to say about our stay- all good. The view, the beach, lots of room in the condo, nice furniture. The area is very quiet. The people at Bender were very nice and helpful. We will be going back.

We are so happy that you had such a nice time in Orange Beach. Perdido Quay is a lovely condo from which to enjoy the beach and the local restaurants and attractions. Remember Bender Realty when you begin making plans for a return trip to the Gulf Coast!
Perdido Quay 601- Awesome!
This unit was every bit as nice in person as the pictures showed online! It was clean, had a nice kitchen area and the large balcony allowed you to enjoy the beach view from every angle. The furniture was not your typical bottom of the line stuff you find in many beach condo rentals. We highly recommend this unit! The only negative was that the unit next door was being totally gutted so it was a bit noisy trying to enjoy the view in the mornings because of the noise from power tools. I wish that would have been mentioned at the time of rental. The unit itself was great!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Orange Beach and at Perdido Quay. Unit 601 is indeed a lovely unit, and its location is prime. We regret the noise that you experienced; all of the units are privately owned, and we were not made aware of any construction that would be taking place. Please give Bender Realty a call when you begin planning your next trip to the Gulf Coast!
Beach & Condo Heaven!
This condo was beautifully decorated and excellently maintained. It was spacious with a huge balcony overlooking the beach that opened from the living room and the bedroom. It was far enough out to be quiet, yet close enough to be no trouble getting to restaurants and shopping. The pool area is spacious with a lot of seating and tables. This condo was as close to perfect as we could have asked for our vacation. We will be back!
Very Spacious and Very Clean!
I loved the condo. Not crowded. Great views and balcony, nice pool, very short walk to the beach. Very well equipped kitchen. And it was cleaner than my house! The only possible complaints were we could have used a couple of more kitchen garbage bags, and the florescent light in the laundry room, wouldn't light properly part of the time.
Gulf Coast Vacation
We really had a good time at Perdido Quay. The unit was great. The beaches were beautiful. There was a good balance of enough people to make it interesting, but not too many people so it was still peaceful. My only wish was that this complex had a couple of grills to use downstairs in the pool area. On one last thing, we are from Florence, SC NOT Lawerence, SC.
great place, just needs better cleaner
We enjoyed our stay even though the main TV never worked and the bathrooms and kitchen needed a better cleaning. We called Direct TV to fix the TV. I think whoever had it before us had done the same thing cause some of the cables in the back of the TV were loose. Did not have success fixing the problem and we didn't contact Bender cause we decided we didn't need that TV (there is one in the master bedroom, also) and didn't want to go into the hassle of having to wait around for someone to come fix it.
Upon our arrival at the condo, we found garbage left in both bathroom's garbage cans and mildew on the shower curtain in guest bathroom, and one commode was dirty(someone had used it and had not flushed). A towel in one bathroom was wadded and not folded like the others, which makes me wonder if it was not dirty. The other commode looked clean and had a sanitized strip over the top of the seat. The kitchen garbage can had something dripped and grimey on the top of the lid.
I would give this unit another chance to see if they have "cleaned up" the act. I liked the location, the view, and the furnishings.
Per dido quay
Very clean, modern, rental and it was very quiet and relaxing.
Beautiful view. Avery relaxing vacation.
Very well decorated and furnished. But the only amenity is an unheated outdoor pool. A very quiet and peaceful area.
My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our week at Perdido Quay. The condo was very large and nicely decorated. We liked the condo's location since it was quiet and less congested than closer in to Gulf Shores. The beach was never crowded since Perdido Quay is a low density unit. Bender Realty was great to work with, and we will definitely use them in the future.
Comfortable, felt like home
Great location and not to many people. We Loved the large private deck and its furniture. It was important that this vacation be as relaxed as possible for our daughter before she starts her surgical residency,and this property helped us accomplish that. We plan to come back if she ever gets any time off!
Beautiful beachfront condo
Enjoyed our week in this home away from home. Comfortable beds, great beach view, and a fully stocked kitchen made this an ideal condo. Great weather, great seafood, great location, equals wonderful family time. We will be back.
Gulf Shores Vacation Oct. 2012
This was our first time vacationing in Gulf Shores and we found the whole experience quite beautiful. After being totally disappointed in the first unit rented, Bender Realty worked with us and saw to it that we had satisfying accommodations. Perdido Quay 601 was absolutely a wonderful place to stay. The area seemed a little more private and quiet, which was perfect for us. Would recommend this unit with no hesitation whatsoever.
