Great location! Needed more forks in kitchen, there was no can opener or baking pans. Ceiling fan blades were dirty. Great pool, plenty of grills and good beach access. Will be back again in 4 years.

This year we rented 8C for the entire 2019 – 2020 winter season. We enjoyed the outstanding ocean and beach view and the multiple options for outdoor seating. This unit is furnished with updated mattresses, flat screen TV, recliner, dining table, and deck seating. Kitchen and bathrooms furnishings are functional and in satisfactory condition. All the flooring is showing end of life, in particularly the carpet (although cleaned before we arrived) has ripples, bagginess and staining. Likewise, the couch and love seat in the living room are very old and extremely uncomfortable.

As always a great place to stay. Any problems were addressed immediately by the wonderful Bender staff!. Always good to see their smiling friendly faces when we arrive and throughout the week. It was great to spend family time at the Sandpiper.,<br/>
And it's certainly a pleasure to see you each year! Sandpiper is the perfect place for annual family visits such as yours, and the private, beach front view from 8C is simply unbeatable.

It was a great week in Gulf Shores at Sandpiper 8C. The Condo has a great ocean view from it's private deck. The team at Bender Realty was great , as always. I plan to stay in this condo , again.
It's always a pleasure, having you stay with us in Gulf Shores! Sandpiper 8C, a part of the great Sandpiper property, with the bonus of a private, beach front balcony, is definitely worth a repeat visit!

Very satisfied for the 4th year in a row staying at sandpiper rentals. The end units give you a lot of room and the private balcony is worth it. The master bed was the only fault, would do an upgrade on the matress, we had a gard time sleeping on it, ceiling fan and ac fans were very loud in this room also.
Sandpiper is such a wonderful property; it is definitely worth repeat visits! Unit 8C has a lovely view from its private, beach front balcony.

We have been coming to Sandpiper for the last 15 years & have never had a bad experience yet. They always deliver when it comes to satisfaction & if we wvwr have an issue they fix it ASAP, no questions asked. I can't wait to go back!!
Sandpiper 8C is indeed heavenly! Its family-friendly atmosphere is out of this world, and the beach front view from the private balcony is divine!

Sandpiper Unit 8C is a nice unit with it's private deck and larger living room area. We have stayed in this unit for several year. With it's bed combinations it makes a great unit for a family. The set of beds in the Master suite are really designed for children of light weight adults as they are not well supported.
It's always a pleasure having you and your family visit us at the Sandpiper. It is truly designed for family groups such as yours, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay in 8C.

We stayed the entire winter season and really liked the, location on the third level, the Gulf Ocean view, the recliner. the overall size of living space, the kitchen counter, sink, refrigerator, and dining table. <br/>The carpet was just cleaned before we arrived, however it is showing age with ripples and bagginess. The mattress in the master bedroom needs to be replaced (it is a back killer), the sofa and love seat are also at the end of life. <br/>
We certainly enjoyed having you stay with us this winter and look forward to next year as well. Sandpiper 8C is a dream unit to stay in - a private, beach front balcony, yet the friendliness of the rest of the property. Thank you for your input; we are sharing it with the owner. Update: The mattress in the master bedroom was replaced in September.

This was our 1st time in The Sandpiper 8C. We loved the layout and especially the deck. The deck was perfect for spending time in the sun or time to relax in early morning or at night. The condo had everything we needed. The folks at Bender Realty were great to work with. My only suggestion to the condo owner would be to replace the carpet throughout the condo with a wood type flooring. This would be more practical for a Beach Condo.

Overall we were very satisfied. We had excellent weather all week and were able to relax and enjoy our time together. I find it ironic that the title I am looking at as I write this review is "Enjoy the Sunsets on the Porch Glider" because the porch glider was broken and did not even look safe to sit on. Also we had a lot of stuff to take down to the beach every day in our wagon and it was very difficult to pull it through the sand. I feel they should look into getting a boardwalk like the other properties around it.
We hope that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores! Sandpiper is a wonderful, family-friendly property, and 8C has the best view from its private, beach front balcony. Thank you for your input. We are checking on the glider now. Please know for future reference that our office is open seven days a week in order to address any issues a guest may have. We hope to assist you in future visits to the Gulf Coast!

Overall it was great. Not as many utensils as some of the other condos but all in all we had what we needed. A couple of the beds were pretty hard but a lot of people prefer this. The elevator was down one day but they came out as soon as they could to fix it. We look forward to our vacation at Sandpiper next year! Already have our condo reserved

We loved our Gulf Shores vacation! We have already booked 8C for the same time next year. Obviously the view is amazing, but the furnishings are nice, and it felt very spacious for our family of 5. We didn't realize carpet was such a big deal, but we had friends tell us none of the condos they have stayed in have carpet. So we ended up being extremely thankful for did a great job of hiding the "sandy" feeling. Washer and dryer were great - we packed light and did laundry every other day. Definitely 5 stars, with just two suggestions: the master bed is not terrible, but it's not the most comfortable bed. An upgrade on the mattress would be hugely appreciated. And 2nd, the kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed...except we couldn't find an ice cream scoop. Maybe we missed it - there are lots of drawers with gadgets...but an ice cream scoop would be helpful to have. Thank you!

we chose this rental because it had three beds in the second bedroom, perfect for our three kids. We loved the view from the balcony, perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. Bathrooms are nice and big. Only complaints are: slippery tubs and only 4 chairs at the dining table. We had to bring in an extra chair from outside to accommodate for the 5 of us.

We have been coming to the Sandpiper for about 30 years. We have stayed in Unit 8C for many of those years. It has plenty of beds for a small or larger family as well as a stocked kitchen. The view is phenomenal and the only way to enjoy your stay on the gulf. Why come all the way here if you can't see the water? Bender Realty is our number one choice for vacation rentals in the area!

My wife and I have celebrated our birthdays in gulf shoree for years and we love staying at Sandpiper, which is quite and conducive for relaxing activities such as sitting on their pristine beaches, and dozing off to the sounds of the surf and birds. The agents working in Bender's realty office are very helpful and I would recommend Bender for all of your vacation needs. God bless????

We were pleasantly surprised with our rental. It felt like a little home instead of a rental condo. Favorite spot was the balcony and since we were only 3 floors up it felt like we were sitting right in the beach. Great view and great rental overall

Been staying here for 20 years always satisfied with the condo location and condition. Love the fact that I don't have to spend time in an elevator riding up to my room in a high rise condo. Take the steps only 3 floors saves time waiting on and riding in an elevator.

We had a wonderful time at the Sandpiper. We have young children and we loved being right on the beach with a great pool. Lots of great memories were made!
We are so glad you had such a good time in Gulf Shores! Sandpiper is indeed a family-friendly condo and perfect for making lasting memories. Please call Bender Realty when you begin making plans for a return to the Gulf Coast!

We have stayed at the Sandpiper for over 20 years for Spring Break. We are never disappointed when we call or walk in the office on that first day to see the smiling faces of the staff. Bill Bender often greets us as he remembers us from previous years. Sandpiper has grown up with us and even as all the high rise condos and fancy hotels crowd the skyline we have never considered staying in one of them before staying at the Sandpiper with Bender Realty. Sandpiper Spring Break Family is our family...we have watch families such as our own go from young adults to parents, to kids going off to college and then those kids coming back with their own children years I said we have grown older with Sandpiper. Fortunately, Sandpiper has gotten new updates and face lifts to keep it fresh and competitive with other accommodations in the area but still has a homelike feeling. When an issue is brought to the attention of the staff it is resolved as soon as possible at the guests convenience. Would I recommend Sandpiper and 8C to others? Of course I would...but only to those people who appreciate and recognize the better things in life!
We are thrilled at the part that Sandpiper and Bender Realty have played in your family's spring breaks throughout the years. Sandpiper is indeed quite special and has an atmosphere that is unparallelled. We look forward to assisting you for many years to come in booking vacations that will be added to your family's memories.

We had a great time. The outside of the property was clean and well maintained. The condo was okay, but could have used a good cleaning. Floors were dirty, woodwork and doors had dirty hand prints every where, bed linens were stained, and we had to buy our own blanket for our bed. The dryer in the unit did not dry clothes. But despite the cleanliness issues, we were there to enjoy the beach and pool and that's just what we did.

We have visited Gulf Shores for 30 years at Spring Break. About 26 of those years we have stayed at Sandpiper. WE LOVE SANDPIPER for its at home feeling and friendly atmosphere. Units are beautifully decorated and accommodate families. We don't plan on ever staying anywhere else! Bill Bender and the staff at Bender are incredible friendly and work hard to meet our needs. They take a personal interest in making their guests feel at home. Thank you to Bill and staff for everything...every year! <br/>
Thanks Gregory family and friends for all the great years having all of you at the beach. Looking forward to 30 more!!

This was a very nice property managed to be family oriented. Despite being there over spring break, we did not encounter any type of problems! The property is well kept and clean. I was especially impressed with the way the kitchen was stocked. It was obviously done by someone who actually cooks!! Although I brought some things from home, I wouldn't have needed to. A+++.Would recommend to anyone and would definately go back again!

We have vacationed at Gulf Shores for over fifteen years and love the area. The Sandpiper has been our choice of places to stay for the past seven years. This is our first experience in 8C and thoroughly enjoyed the beach front private balcony and would be my choice for future stays. The unit was clean, kitchen well equipped and nice and living room area had updated furniture. My only complaint is the mattress in the master (balcony) bedroom was extremely firm and uncomfortable and there was no television in that bedroom, which would be really nice to have after a long day on the beach and you're ready to wind down for the night. I would highly recommend a GS vacation and the Sandpiper is always a wonderful place to stay.

We had 5 adults and a toddler and there was plenty of room for everyone. The location was ideal. The private balcony on this unit was perfect. There were a couple days I didn't even go down to the beach because I was able to enjoy it all (the breeze, the sounds, the smells, the sun) from the roomy balcony without having the hassle of the sand. Would I stay here again? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Loved Sandpiper & will definitely be back!

Reasonably priced and love the layout for meeting up with friends for drinks or coffee in the morning Would like to see some type of over hang or cover over the top private porches on 8 and 16 C. Hard to sit out their during the day. Overall though a great place to stay!

Overall our stay was wonderful. We loved the location of our unit. The only thing we had concerns about was the carpet. It was very soiled. The large spots on the carpet were very noticable to us and to our friends and neighbors as they visited. Also, there was no suction from the sweeper. We borrowed a sweeper from one of the other units to do the cleaning. The sweeper appeared to be quite old. We were extremely happy with the employees at the property management office. I had to have refrigerated medication mailed to me while in Gulf Shores. They went above and beyond to see that I received the medication after it was dropped off at the Bender Realty Office. We will be staying at this facility again next year.
Thank you for your comments. Owner has replaced carpet throughout the condo and installed a new vacuum cleaner!

We were returning to the Sandpiper about 10 years after our first visit. The building is very nice and well laid out. The unit was also nice. The only possible complaint was that the carpet was pretty worn and stained in the dining area mainly, so it's probably ready to be replaced. The ladies at Bender are almost unbelievable friendly and welcoming, so our interactions with them were a treat! If I were going to purchase a unit in GS, I would look seriously at the Sandpiper.

Except for there being no heat in the condo for the first night everything else was great. The problem with the heat was reported and fixed the next day.

The beachfront condo was excellent. We loved the view. <br/>Having stayed in other Sandpiper condos we did find this kitchen exceptionally equipped over others we have stayed in. <br/>We love the Sandpiper and we will be back!
