We really enjoyed our time in the condo and the beach. Even though we live less than 5 miles to the beach on Wedgewood Drive in Gulf Shores, we wanted to see something other than our yard.
Caribbean 703 is the perfect Gulf Coast getaway, no matter how far or near you are from!

Great Condo and Location! Our family had a great beach vacation and loved spending a little time in this condo. It was clean, cool, and comfy. Access to the beach was so easy and we happen to be right near a beach attendant who got our beach cabana stuff set up each day. Our kids slept in the cute bunk beds. The top bunk does not have a rail but we rolled up a blanket and put it under the fitted sheet to create a bumper and it worked great. Plenty of bathroom towels was very helpful. Bring extra toilet paper, trash bags, and paper towels youll be good to go! If youre bringing little kidsyou might bring some paper or plastic cups/bowls/plates as all the dishes are pretty nice and glass/ceramic. The decor is updated with nice white marble-ish counters and pretty glass backsplash and all stainless steel appliances! The king bed has a pretty hard mattress but its tolerable and we were so tired from playing on the beach we never had a problem sleeping! The pool was small but clean and never really that busy. The TV is really nice with Dish (that we couldnt really get to work) but also had access to Netflix where we signed into our own account. Overall we are definitely happy and would love to stay here again!

Loved our vacation and condo! First time we've been this late in the year. It was wonderful. We will be back next year .
We are so glad you enjoyed your Caribbean vacation in Gulf Shores! October is wonderful on the Gulf Coast, and spending it in a sweet condo like Caribbean 703 makes your stay one to remember!

We have stayed in this building several times. This is the first time we used Bender Realty. They are very particular about the condition and cleanliness of the unit, to the point if there was a bulb burnt out to call them immediately. They even checked with us to make sure everything was as we wanted. Bender also manages the building and keeps it spotless. Kudos to the entire team for a well managed property.
Thank you for the kind words! It gives us great pleasure to provide quality service to our guests. We're glad you enjoyed your stay in the terrific Caribbean 703 and look forward to the opportunity to assist you in future visits to the Gulf Coast!

Super nice pet friendly unit! We’ve stayed here with and without our pets. Unit is very nice! King sized bed, updated kitchen and bathrooms. Very comfortable during our stay! Very conveniently located to shops, restaurants and BenderRealty office. We’ve never stayed this time of the year ( just before Thanksgiving) and it was very enjoyable. Have already started planning our next trip! We’ve stayed in 2 units at Caribbean and in both units we found it difficult to open balcony door. Nothing that would keep us from staying here though.

We've stayed at this location before (different condo) and like it's proximity to restaurants and activities while still seeming like it's "off the beaten path". This particular condo, while clean, was not the most comfortable we've stayed in. The bed felt like a straw mattress and the sofa/chairs were also uncomfortable. We did enjoy the table and chairs on the balcony. The condo is small, but perfect for two people. This is our second time to rent from Bender Realty and they make it easy!

We found the Carribean 703 apt. as advertised...clean, well-equipped, and delightfully decorated. The bathrooms were quite sufficient for the two of us ,and the kingsize bed very comfortable. We so much enjoyed the beauty of the ocean view and sounds each morning as we awoke, and miss the ocean and this view very much. We felt the price was very reasonable and will book again, if we can for next year. The Bender staff was very friendly, non-intrusive, and we felt always available if needed.
We're so pleased that you had such a good time in Gulf Shores. Caribbean 703 is a lovely condo, with its private, beach front balcony and outstanding amenities. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready for a return to the Gulf Coast!

Overall, very good short stay. A great view from the balcony. Unit, could have been a bit cleaner, especially the floors and throw rugs; and shower curtain liner needed replacement. Kitchen utensils lack a coffee scope and had only one sharp dinner knife; only one small spoon. There is no security on the elevators, stairs, or pool. Access/View of the ocean and beach excellent; you will need to bring your own chairs and umbrella for beach, or rent one from the local vendor, which we did.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores, at Caribbean 703. Thank you for your input; we have addressed these issues already. Please know that there are security cameras located in the elevator and poolside. Keep Bender Realty in mind for your next Gulf Coast vacation!

The room was great! Right on the beach! We stayed at this condo last year as well, just a different room. The only problem we had was someone drilling in a near by room early in the morning, which happened last year as well, but it was only one morning. We have stayed here twice, and plan on staying again. The bender staff is really sweet and helpful! Not a 5 star condo, but we came to be at the beach, not inside the whole time.
We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation in Gulf Shores. Caribbean is indeed in a prime location, with easy access to the beach and local attractions. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!

Our family of 4 rented Caribbean 703 for Spring Break. It was a great stay and we plan on coming back next year. The building is family friendly and the location makes for a nice walk to The Hang Out, Bahama Bob's, and all the shops. The unit was clean and had everything we needed to cook meals and relax comfortably while watching the ocean from the balcony.
We're so pleased you had such a nice vacation in Gulf Shores. Caribbean is indeed a lovely location from which to enjoy the Gulf view, as well as its close proximity to local restaurants and attractions. Please keep Bender Realty in mind when you begin planning a return trip to the Gulf Coast!

Bed was tough and not comfy to sleep on<br/><br/>Constant construction was being done on a place below us and not so much of an apology was given when I called<br/><br/>Overall though, the stay was fine and had a good view.
We are glad you had a good time in Gulf Shores; the view from Caribbean is certainly fine. We regret the frustration and inconvenience you experienced due to the construction going on in another unit; being a private owner, we had no prior knowledge nor control, other than requesting that the construction take place during certain hours. We hope that you will consider Bender Realty when you begin making plans for your next vacation to the Gulf Coast.

It was a very nice condo. The view was spectacular, especially the sunsets. The mattress was very hard and the stackable washer and dryer could use an update, otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed it. We would stay there again.
We're so happy you had the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful sunsets, and Caribbean is a great place from which to do so! Thank you for your input, which we will certainly address. We hope to see you in the future.

Overall the condo was an excellent place to spend a week. The location was perfect, and the view from the balcony was breath taking. The condo was very clean and in excellent condition. The check in was very fast and the staff showed excellent service. The pictures were 100% from the Caribbean 703.Everything you would need were there and I would recommend this to everyone. The only improvements would be a softer bed and more parking spots. But the good out ways the two by a million to two.

the room we stayed in was very nice and clean.

Bender is awesome to book any stay through. Professional, courteous, and accomodating. Our stay at one of their many condo rentals was an awesome getaway from home. We have rented from them several times in the past six years and have had a pleasant, relaxing vacation. This particular condo could use some deep cleaning, all in all it's a very nice location - Quick to the beach, quick to go to dinner,(dancing optional), and a quick trip to the ever so famous, Wal-Mart! Thanks Bender, we'll see ya'll next summer....maybe October!

The rental itself was amazing - can't beat the location (was directly on the beach and not too far away from stores and entertainment). However, not impressed with Gulf Shores as a vacation location. With only one bar located in the town and almost nothing else to do, it was hard to find things to do when one day was rainy and overcast - would've rather been in FL where I've stayed before and knew what was in the area.

We stayed for 3 nights in August 2013. You can't beat the location. Close to many restaurants, shops, etc. and not far from outlet mall in Foley. Being right on the beach is awesome and is why we booked this condo rather than a more updated one on the other side of the road. Also loved that there was an indoor and outdoor pool. There were some minor things that could be improved including the overall decor (furniture in living room was not the best quality) and there was just way too much green for my taste! One pillow was stained yellow so we would not use. The shower curtain liner had mildew on it and needs to be replaced. The top bunk did not have a rail or ladder, so we were not comfortable using it. Also looked like the bedding on the bunks has seen better days. It would be nice to have some sort of dresser in the bedroom (maybe in the closet) to store clothes instead of living out of a suitcase. The appliances all worked great, but the washer and dryer are very small and the dishwasher was very loud. But I was glad they were available. For the price, it was not a bad deal and we enjoyed our stay very much.

Great Time!

After reading the mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised! It had everything we needed and the fact that it was right on the beach was great! A few things could use some updating and the bunk beds could use a ladder but we enjoyed our stay very much. This is our second time using Bender and we definitely use them in the future!

Dryer did not work and bender realty knew about it and did not tell us and offered for us to bring clothes to there office and dry but did not offer a discount on the room. I would have wanted a different room. We did not find this out until we had already unpacked. This was very inconvient. The area was great.

Caribbean 703:<br/><br/>Good - Clean, nicely furnished, well-stocked kitchen.<br/><br/>Not so good - Sleeper sofa was HORRIBLE. Would not have been able to use it the entire week. Toilet in master bath did not flush well, had to hold the handle down until bowl emptied. The dryer quit working and although the repair person showed up within 1/2 hour of our call on Wednesday, it still was not fixed when we left on Friday.<br/><br/>Bad - Renters in 702 were horrible. Since Bender did not rent the unit, nothing can be done to prevent them from renting next year. Police and Condo security assured us they were being evicted due to them throwing beer and cigarettes off the balcony. However, they were not evicted. Very disappointing.

The condo had a very nice beachy feel. Everything was nice and tidy.<br/>We had everything we needed to cook and clean up after ourselves. We will definitely be returning to the Caribbean. I think everyone has a complaint about the fees that they charge, they are outrageous. I think personally people would rather pay more for the room than see the.crazy charges on the invoice. Also, when I booked the room.i was not informed of the charges, she just have me an ending balance (which was reasonable). Therefore, I felt like they were trying to keep that from me until it was already to late to question the amount. Just ask for a detail of the charges beforehand. This was my first time renting a condo, so I wasnt aware of the process. And lastly they didnt inform me that you have to check-in at a different location than the Condo. My 2 yr old was furious that she had to get back in her carseat. It would have been nice to know ahead of time. Overall, the experience was great, once we got to the condo!!<br/>

I was very fortunate to reserve such a great spot at the last minute. My family and I had a great time. The only complaints I have is that the condo was not very clean considering the amount we are charged for the cleaning fee. I also think that there needs to be some kind of walkthrough put into place. I took a few pictures of some things that were broken or destroyed that I did not want to be charged for.

We were very happy to get this room on the beach. Check-in with Bender was very professional and accomodating. The Caribbean was very nice and clean. Around 10 PM we found the shower wasn't draining ant the toilet worked when it wanted. I called security<br/> and reported it. They left message with plumber who did not get back to me until 8 AM.Said he would contact Bender for work order and could be there around 2 or 3 PM. I told him that I would be checked out by then and my family could have slept in the car<br/> just as well. When I checked out with Bender I advised them of this along with blood stained pillows, broken picture frame in the closet and picture that fell off wall when my wife bumped it with her head in the closet 1/2bath. Nails were very loose. Luckily<br/> it did not land on her foot. Bender agent asked me if there was anything else I replied "Isn't that enough!" I had a better stay in a $35 hotel on the way down. I paid over $100 cleaning fee and had to take out the trash and make sure the dishes I didn't use<br/> were clean and put away. WHY?? She said manager would get back with me wich has NOT happened yet. Will it ever????

our stay was great! the ladies at bender were very helpful and the condo was just what we were looking for.

The condo itself was great, very clean. However, the owner needs to put some type of window covering up in the bedroom. There is a patio light in the breezeway that shines right into the unit making it very difficult to sleep in that bedroom - spent a few nights on the sofa! Other than that the only flaws we found were that the pool was extremely dirty - perhaps an issue with the filter and the elevator was extremely slow - a lot slower than would be expected for a unit with only 8 floors - caused a wee bit of the relaxation of the trip to disappear! Overall it was a great condo in a great location and we will definitely return in the future.
