Perfect getaway condo and location.
Room was perfect size for us.
And location of condo was ideal. Being the last condo before the state park, the crowd was much less.
Only concern was the boardwalk-several boards need to be replaced out of caution and safety for guests.

Everything was as described and more. We had a very comfortable stay. Bought fresh seafood & cooked in some nights - the kitchen has every piece of equipment you need and more! Comfortable balcony seating for morning coffee and dolphin watching. Even though it was just 2 of us, it was great each having our own bathroom - no crowding or rushing. Keyless entry was so convenient! Realty company was so helpful and got us all information needed for a great stay. We will be back.

Our stay was good overall. The only reason I didn't give everything 5 stars was because we could not get the TV to work in the living room, the master bathroom drain was slow & we did see some bugs in the codo.

The unit was not clean. There was a foul smell from old seafood left in the refridgerator. This permeated into the food that we placed in the refridgerator and persisted through our stay. We attempted to clean the area, but the odor remained.

Me, my wife, 18-month old daughter, and a friend rented this condo for a short vacation, and it was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything better for a fun beach vacation. The bunk beds are short, so be aware of that. A kid or short adult is better off sleeping in them, but the pull out couch bed was great for our friend. Overall, I would recommend this condo for a small family or group!

Condo is just like the pictures and is in a great location. Security gaurds were warm and welcoming. The floors were either swept or vaccumed but not mopped. I like to kick my shoes off and go bare foot. When I went to put my shoes back on the bottem of my feet were black. Yuck! I should have called Bender to send someone out to clean. Ended up buying slippers at Walmart. And only one elevator working was unfortunate.

We absolutely loved the condo! It was very nice with beautiful decor. We enjoyed the beach and relaxation as we celebrated our 43rd anniversary..We had lots of good seafood. Finn & Fork, Sassy Bass, Doc’s GS Seafood, Beach house kitchen, , just to name a few. Just wished it wasn’t so many chair rentals in front. We felt it took up some space for the ones that had their own chairs and umbrellas. I gave a 4 star on cleanness because of glitter being everywhere and I think I brought some home.LOL..Throw rugs very dirty..and exhaust fans didn’t work in either bathroom. Other than that it was awesome Thanks so much for letting us rent this condo to make memories. SS

After one night at the condo, we had to move to a different condo 3 miles away due to a strong chemical odor coming from the condo above us being under renovation. The weather got cold with heavy rain, so our stay was not pleasant.

Manager's Response

We certainly regret the experience you had with the maintenance that was going on at the property, but we are glad that we were able to accommodate you with a condo with a private, beach front balcony and indoor pool. Please give Bender Realty a call when you plan your next visit to the Gulf Coast!

This is our second time using Bender Realty to help find a good fit for what we needed for our stay. We had stayed in this unit for 5 days and it was more than wonderful! The staff at Bender Realty are very helpful and genuine. We were given so many recommendations around town and local tips! During our stay there was a music festival going on and we were given alternative directions to help avoid the traffic during that time, which our map didn't even show us! The view is beautiful, and is very close walking distance to the Gulf Shores State Park...there is a pier right there. The unit was clean, and very spacious. Some tips on what to bring are: tinfoil, coffee filters, beach towels, seasonings (salt/pepper), ice, laundry detergent, and a sponge. We used a wash rag as a sponge and actually just picked up some free salt/pepper from a fast food it wasn't a big deal for us!...We were made aware of the items not provided ahead of time. Items that are included are bath towels, wash rags, 1 sample size of dish washing soap, 2 sample size bar soaps, all kitchen utensils imaginable, clean/wrapped sheets,and more. The photos in the online pictures are up to date and appear as in the photos. The staff deserves 10 stars for how informative, nice, and accommodating they were! We will DEFINITELY use Bender Realty when choosing a condo to stay at in the future :) Thank you!!

but a tropical storm made us change our plans.
So we were scrambling for a place at Gulf Shores. Lucky for us you had a opening. Nice clean Resort and reasonably priced. Beautiful beach and great weather.

The location is great - right next to the state park and pier - lots of open space around the building. Easy to find good parking. Small condo building, but great privacy. You can't go wrong with this one.

Royal Palms is in a great location-State Pier on east side makes it less crowded and more room to walk beach. Room 406 was decorated very nicely and room was very clean. Love being on 4th floor with easy access to beach. Only drawback was the very small bath rooms but all other space was ample. There was no hair dyer in either bath room, no coffee filters and no extra toilet paper.
Overall a wonderful place to stay. And absolutely the best seafood anywhere!

Being next to the State Park makes this property a great place to stay because you don't feel jammed up against other buildings and not as many people surrounding you on the beach. The furnishings were fine and the balcony furniture was very comfortable. The only reason I did not give the cleanliness a 5 star was that the floors could use a really good cleaning, but that was a minor thing. If there for an event at the Hangout area, you could walk there from the condo, and it is an easy drive to Orange Beach restaurants as well. We will be staying here again!!

I love the beach and this place is perfect as far as location is concerned. It would be nice if the summer rates were a little cheaper. The décor is outdated and needs a little sprucing up. The bedroom is small and really has too much furniture. A smaller bed and less furnishing would be great! The dresser mirror is too low to look in without bending. I look forward to staying there again next year when all the updates have taken place. Hopefully they'll give me a discount the second time around:))

My family and I had a good rental experience. It would have been a great experience, however, there were some issues with the cleanliness of the condo upon arrival. The floors were dirty and there was an odor in the condo. I mopped the floors which remedied that issue. We found the smell coming from the trash can so we cleaned that as well. Once these issues were taken care of, our stay was great. I also informed Bender Realty on the comment card they gave us, so hopefully the issue will be addressed. I would recommend this condo to friends. It's in a good location and family-friendly. My family would definitely stay here again.

The bunk bed ladder was not stable, did not reach floor and top railing was not secure enough for us to allow child to use top bunk. Everything else was great.

The condo was full of flies. I killed 7 flies in 1 hour. We found that the garbage disposal was broken and full of food. Guessing that's where the flies were coming from. I called Bender and an hour or so later someone came over to fix it. The condo itself was nice though.

The property managers were extremely helpful in registering, giving pointers of faster check-in and helpful in any "extras" you need to bring along. The management staff was very courteous and friendly and I would highly recommend using Bender Realty.

Manager's Response

We are very sorry your stay was troubled by less than acceptable housekeeping. This is to report the unit has just been deep cleaned, and the owner has purchased a new coffee pot and other small appliances, along with ensuring the kitchen is well stocked with cookware, etc. We encourage you to always let us know if you find the condo lacking in any way - we want you to enjoy your stay with Bender Realty!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo is in a great area being the last one next to the pier making it less crowded. Our condo was nice and clean. Parking was no problem. We had a great stay.

The condo could have been better. The outside of the building itself was great. (cleanliness, pools,showers from beach, board walk to beach) Of course, big disappointment with the oil spill going on.

Would like to say we had a fabulous time at the Royal Palms. Our stay was for 7 nights with 4 girls, 13, 6, 4 and 2. The property was clean and the proximity to the beach was ideal for taking our gear back and forth. Thanks!

The staff @ Bender were very cordial and helpful. On arrival @ property,I spoke with security guard,Mr. Gamble. He was very nice & most helpful. The next day a new security guard was there and remained the guard for the entire stay. He was very rude and over zealous in his job @ the property. His attitude and demeanor bordered on harassment to my family. As I was leaving on the day I checked out, I spoke to a man who said he was an owner. He explained that there had been problems with people not staying at the property tresspassing and causing damage. I can understand the need for monitoring of the property, however the guard knew were paying guests. I felt his constant harrassment was totally inappropriate and unacceptable. Therefore I could not recommend this property to anyone. I visit the Gulf 4-5 times per year, usually in Destin, and have never been treated in such a manner.I also felt the limit of one parking space for a one bedroom unit that sleeps six was not guest friendly.

Great Location. It was next to the State Park so there were no houses or condos to the east for several miles.
September was a good time to go as the area was not crowded.

Upon arrival to GS, we were booked into Sugar Beach and were surprised to see the only bedroom upstairs; my husband just had hip surgery in April. I contacted Bender Realty and within 20 minutes Pat called and had placed us in Royal Palms, a perfect location, perfect room, perfect view!! Thank you so much and our words of advertisement will be your best!! Again thank you!
