Gulf Tower is undergoing a much needed face lift and is looking beautiful again. We stayed in 3 B. Ok owners time for kitchen and bath remodel and a new mattress please. The room was clean, linens where clean. Need new cookwear in kitchen. The view was fantastic, as was the beach. Close to restaurants and activities. The Bender staff is always helpful . We have used Bender for 20 years.

We rented 3B. The unit was just ok. The balcony was very nicely appointed, the furniture was a bit too rustic and kitchen cabinets very scratched up. The bed sheets smelled like suntan lotion so we had to wash all the sheets b/c apparently they weren't washed prior to our arrival. We couldn't watch the front room TV b/c the ethernet cable wasn't connected and nobody was able to come out b/c it was the weekend. We were given a key to access the pool area when it wasn't needed and both elevators stopped working at times. The condo common area was sub par. The mgmet staff went above and beyond to contact us and were very professional.

We loved our vacation to Gulf Shores and our stay at this little gem. From the layout that gave us privacy when the kids where sleeping to the balcony and listening to the ocean to the lovely pool a short distance away from the beach to the beach toys for the kids. It was all lovely and we will definitely book again!

This was a great place to stay. It was clean and modern. The kitchen was better equipped than I expected. The beds were super comfy. The air condition blew super cold and the ice machine cranked out ice all day long. The only bad part was the water pressure in the showers. My daughter and I have long thick hair, we had to hold our heads under the faucets to get it wet enough to wash. Overall, we'd definitely choose this unit again.

Our rental experience was very positive. Bender Vacation Rentals gave us excellent service as well as advice on dining, shopping, and everything else that came up during our stay. When we needed help turning on the cable, a staff member came over immediately to help. The staff is incredible, friendly, and lots of fun! The condo itself is in a great location with an outstanding view of the Gulf and beach. We would recommend the carpeting be replaced. There are stains in both the bedroom and living room and the carpet just appears worn. The only other recommendation would be to replace the dining table and stools with a regular table and chairs. It's very uncomfortable to try to eat at such a high table and sit on stools.

Our location on Gulf Shores was perfect. The view of the Gulf is just beyond our building and the view is beautiful. Our rental company, Bender, has been wonderful to know and work with. The people are so friendly and helpful in many more ways than just with our rental unit. I highly recommend Bender.

When we arrived, the dishes were all dusty, must not have been rented in awhile, we needed to rewash all of them. The tile floors also had some sort of film on them that made them feel like there was sand on them, but they came the next day and cleaned them up also cleaned glass doors. We had friends who stayed in the building and their rooms seemed to be more up to date with furnishings. Although our kitchen had everything we needed and more. So that was nice. Weather was great!!

Everything was great, except for the parking. We had 2 cars and my son had to walk back and forth to the rental center to get his car when my husband and I would leave. Need to do something about the parking.

First time vistors and we loved it. Would return to same location but maybe different unit. Unit was nice, could use a few updates and hoped to have WiFi, other than that was perfect location and views were amazing.

We have always been very happy with Bender Realty. We would not recommend this unit as a rental though. It was very plain & basic. The furniture was not comfy and everything seemed cheap. The only thing that stood out was the view of the Gulf. We WILL call Bender for our next vacation, but will not stay in this unit again.

Gulf Towers has been our normal place to stay over the last 10 years. We have wanted to try a different condo but are so comfortable with the management and the condo we haven't stayed at any others.

The owners that are usually around are very friendly and try to keep a good eye on the place. Manage ment is always helpful if somthing goes out in the room and send someone over quikly to check it out.

Trash accoumalated inthe garbage bin quite high during our stay but of course this wasover the 4th of July weekend and I'm sure that those guys were also enjoying the time off.

Thanks for the wonderful help from Bender Reality, they have always been easy to work with when we make reservations and so polite during the check in process.

My husband and I have stayed at
Gulf Towers several times and have always enjoyed our stay. I used to even bring the youth group from my church here back around 1989 we came at least twice. We love the location and it is so quiet and peaceful with no partying going on. Thanks again and we will be back. Marilyn

This as not my favorite unit that I have rented, but I undrstand the owners have just started renting and ae fixing things up. However it was clean, neat and has the potential for a comfortable atmosphere

I suppose I would like to comment also that I am a little miffed at the cost of cleaning and the fee for renting. For those of us that have been coming to Gulf Towers for years (me for 16-18 yrs)and are clean and neat and hardly leave anything to clean.I feel we should get a discount. As a matter of fact, if I was an owner, i would like to know a known renter was there for less, respecting my is now hard for me to afford my favorite get away. Any chance of some specials for us ?

Great location and potential, (only because so much is needed). Unfortunately this property is sparsely furnished with low budget furniture. Guest bedroom has shears on window illuminated all night by 2 bright light fixtures with no way to turn them off and the bed is torturous. Kinda like summertime in Alaska (never dark). No stereo system, not even a boom box, and no working alarm clocks. On checkout the Bender person was uncaring - said you shouldn't need an alarm clock on vacation and the cleaning staff was tired. Forgive me for wanting a working clock and a clean place on arrival - glass doors were filthy and bathroom floor was also. This could be a great place with decent amenities and proper cleaning on a regular basis. I am sure we left it much cleaner than their cleaning staff is accustomed to. They charge a cleaning fee and yet they expect you to do it, except for washing towels and sheets.

I got stuck in the elevator for twenty five minutes with three other people, two bags of trash, and a hangover too boot. So that was quite a letdown. The emergency phone didn't work correctly the first try-then we could barely hear the operator. Somebody should really take elevator mantienace seriously. That whole experience was traumatic to say the least. I'm just glad my 4 year and 6 month old girls were not with me at the time. Aside from that I love Gulf Tower, my extended family has been vacationing there for 17 years...
