Bender Realty was awesome to work with. We had to reserve last minute due to an owner cancellation of our original travel plan. The realty company was very helpful and kind. I would absolutely reserve through them again. However, the condo was very outdated and unclean. The cabinets especially were grimy and dirty. The carpet in the bedrooms should be removed! It was filthy. It could be a great place but is severely in need of some updating. The condo building was nice and great in location to the beach, restaurants, and shops.

While the condo is in a great location we found that it was in need of a deep cleaning & updating. The bottom cabinets had coffee poured down the front of them, the silverware was dirty, & dirty towels were hanging in the master bathroom . The bathroom with the twin beds shower leaked. The full size bedroom’s bathroom shower head was coming off the wall. The master bathroom’s shower had mold & the vanity’s wood was in poor condition. Definitely would would not stay there again.

We loved our ocean view & how close we were to the beach & pool, but were extremely unhappy with the lack of cleanliness & overall lack of care in keeping the condo worthy of guests paying a premium to stay at a resort town. Bender rep Jenny booked the condo for us & told us upfront the unit needed updating & gave us a $300 discount to reflect this (only after we asked). We assumed she meant decor not function of important condo amenities. We specifically asked if the unit was clean. She said yes. Not anywhere close to fact! Cleaning staff was either lazy, not well paid, or rushed to thoroughly clean the unit. Dust, dirt & grime were present throughout. It was laughable the unit was "inspected", which delayed our check in. The unit was not up to adequate standards. We feel we were mislead & a much larger discount should have been given based on the actual condition of the unit. For ex., carpets are filthy & stained so badly that we did not want to walk on them barefooted. All 3 showers had mechanical issues & were otherwise broken in places that were not taken care of. 1 of the shower curtains was secured with a curtain rod & fell on 1 guest's head & it took 2 of us 20 min to get back up. Carpet tacks were exposed in multiple bedrooms. My type 1 diabetic daughter cut her foot on 1 & must take care of her feet to prevent infection at all times. This could have led to a serious diabetes complication. The door to the balcony in 1 of the bedrooms was off its hinges. Dishwasher plastic wheels kept popping off making it hard to slide in & out and we had to continuely re-attach. Bottom line is it was extremely unacceptable to rent this unit to guests at top dollar & shows a lack of care & responsibility on the part of the owner & the realty co. We were extremely dissatisfied & will not be renting from Bender in the future as this is a direct representation of how Bender treats clients with a lack of respect & integrity. Our hope is they fix thi

The people at Bender are great to work with! They are friendly, responsive, prompt and efficient. The unit itself needs some updating, but it was clean and ready for us. The location is terrific.
Update 6/20: The owner had plans in place for re flooring the entire unit when Covid-19 happened. As a result, plans have been postponed until August. Be on the lookout for new pictures on our website!
It was a pleasure having you stay with us this winter! The location of Surf Side Shores is perfect for active renters such as yourselves, biking and enjoying the local activities and restaurants.

The folks at Bender are just great! So, friendly and helpful! When we needed anything they were so efficient, they were great!
Thank you for your kind words! Surf Side Shores 1506 is a great place from which to escape the cold North! Its beach front balcony and convenient location to all things happening in the area make Surf Side Shores worth coming back to.

We go to Gulf Shores almost yearly. Would not recommend this condo. The condo needs to be updated. The carpet is worn and dirty. When you walk through a doorway with carpet the tacks come through. The cabinets are warped. The closet doors in the master bedroom were off the tracks. The door handle on the patio door was broken off. Most showers were cold. Pillows on the beds were flat.

The condo was great, and we loved the location. The pools and beach were so mice! Our only complaints were the broken patio furniture and elevator. The elevator wasn't working half the time, and we had to haul our things up five flights of stairs. If these things were fixed, we wouldn't have any complaints!
We are so glad you enjoyed your Gulf Shores vacation. Surf Side Shores 1506 is indeed in a great location, close to all of the wonderful, local restaurants. Thank you for your input. We are addressing the balcony furniture now. Please know that you can call us any day of the week, and our maintenance staff will address whatever issue you may be experiencing. We hope that you will call Bender Realty when you begin planning your next trip to the Gulf Coast!

Our vacation was good. There are a few things that need to be updated. For example, the knob in the master bathroom shower was loose. And it could be cleaned a little more. But overall it was great, we ate supper on the balcony over looking the beach. It was nice! I would definitely stay again.

This was our first visit to Gulf Shores. We had a big group come with us and this rental was just what we needed. Spacious, right on the beach, close/walking distance to restaurants, swimming pool, Wi-Fi, etc. The rental could use some cosmetic updates to the bedrooms, bathrooms, and patio. The patio was a huge letdown. There were chairs but no table and some of the chairs were broken. Most of our time was spent out here watching the beach activity and enjoying the view. It should have been an extension of the living space instead of an afterthought of chairs. The other rental balconies were well equiped with updated comfy looking patio furniture. Overall the rental met our needs. I think with an updated bathroom, bedroom, and patio will put this unit over the top.

We really enjoyed our stay at Surf Side Shores 1506. The unit was very clean and in good condition. We could have used a TV in the 2nd bedroom and the pantry cabinet in the kitchen was falling apart. Other than that....fantastic!!! We will probably try to get a unit in this building again.

Right on the beach with a great view. It was a little smaller than I expected but I didn't really mind because we were hardly indoors. Beach is very beautiful and well kept.

We have stayed at Surfside Shores in another unit in building 2. We love the location and the 3 bedroom models have 3 bathrooms which is another plus. This unit (1506) really needs some owner TLC. The cabinets do not close properly, the middle shower was leaking water onto the bedroom carpet (we reported to Bender they sent a plumber but he did not fix it). The master bath toilet is a very slow flush. The carpet really needs to be changed. This is my 3rd year staying at Surfside and will go back but not to this unit. The ladies at Bender were very nice and helpful and thanked me for reporting the plumbing issue. Also the sink in the beachside bath needs to be replaced before it starts leaking. I don't know how condo ownership works but if I was an owner I think I would maintain my unit better.

We enjoyed our stay on the beach; however, we had several issues. Number 1, the air was not working properly. When I called to check to see if someone could come out, they sent someone but he said he could not justify sending out an AC person because it was humid outside. I said ok, can you at least bring three box fans? He said he would try. He brought back one. We had three bedrooms and a person with us that cannot breathe very good that ended up having to go home. Then, the next night, it gets up to 80 again. At night, it should not do that. I called the after hours ER number because of the lady that was with us has the breathing problems. That man said he would get an AC man out as soon as possible. That was around midnight. The AC man did not come until 3 the next afternoon! He did find a problem with it and did fix it for our stay. The other problem was the dish washer. It did NOT clean our dishes. When I opened it, it STUNK BAD! We had to wash every single thing twice. Once before we used it, because the dishes in the cabinet were not very clean and then once after we used it. Needless to say, we will not be staying here again. We would love to be compensated for those three days that we were living in 80 degree weather in the condo and for having to take one of our people back. Thank you, Christy

Awesome!

The condo was badly in need of repairs and some updates- especially kitchen and bathrooms. We had to vacuum and clean it ourselves when we got there. Both doors to balcony were broken. Balcony furniture was broken and needs replacing. Amount of space, location, and property were ok but pics of condo do not show the problems. Cute decor and furniture. Very disappointing- will not stay again unless updates and repairs done. Left a detailed list with Bender Realty.

We were happy with the location of the condo. The cleanliness of the unit was questionable. The carpet was very dirty. The door to the balcony was broken including the glass. It was hard to open and close. The kitchen was too small for 8 people. The door to the master bedroom didn't work and the door to the bathroom had been completely removed. We will book from Bender again, but not in this condo.

My family vacation was very nice. The condo was perfect for our family of 7 and we never ran out of hot water. The balcony has a perfect ocean view and we even saw dolphins swimming in the morning. Many grocery stores are nearby including Wal-mart. A few things could be improved such as the shower curtains were ripped, the bath tub could use a scrub, and the carpet needed a shampoo. Overall we enjoyed staying here.

This was an ideal place for our group. Everyone got to do their own thing, beach,pool,sunrises, and sunsets. Everything was right there at 1506 Surf Side Shores. Bender was one of the nicest,and easiest Gulf Shores Realtors to work with. You have got to try Slacky Jacks to eat it was great. to our family Gulf Shores is our second home. Will use Bender again.

We have stayed with Bender Realty for many years and have also stayed in this same condo.<br/>However, we were very disappointed in the unit we had this year. To begin with we had to wait for the unit to be cleaned. Our wait was about one hour after check-in time. When we did get into the condo, it was far from clean. The shower curtains all had mold and milldew on them. The carpet in the front bedroom had not been cleaned as there were still kleenex and food under the tablecloth from previous stays. Also there was a recliner in the main room that was filthy. We still had a wonderful stay but did not feel that our unit was clean. We also felt that the bathroom had not been cleaned properly although the commode did have a paper across but by the end of the week it really looked bad. We still look forward to staying with Bender Realty as the reservation personnel are great to go the extra mile to make your stay pleasent. We did not contact Bender because we did not want cleaning people in the unit after we carried our bags up. We did have a wonderful time but did feel our unit was not up to par.

A very pleasant stay...

My stay was quite enjoyable. It fit 6 people very comfortably. The view of the gulf was fantastic! The furniture is beautiful, my only complaint is the recliner seemed to be broken. I also thought the rug in the kitchen was quite drab and didn't go with the decor at all. Only 2 out of the 3 rooms had televisions, it would have been nice if they all did. A big plus is that the condo had 3 bathrooms!!! Full size! So nobody had to share a bathroom. However the bedroom I was staying in had a very small shower, only 1 person. I tried to shower with my 2 year old but it was impossible without getting soap in her eye and I'm a petite person. Also it had a shower curtain which did nothing to keep the water off the floor. They definitely need to invest in a door of some sort or at the least a thick rug. My 2 year old slipped and fell Atleast 5 times and we had to use clean towels to soak up the water do we were constantly washing then to ensure we had clean towels. All in all it was a pleasant experience and I would stay there again. And I also cannot say enough good things about the team of people that we spoke with at Bender, from booking the room to arriving to check out they were always VERY FRIENDLY AND VERY HELPFUL. You can tell they truly care about your stay and not just another passer through I will always be using bender everytime I come to the gulf. Customer Service is stellar!!

We enjoyed our vacation! The condo was great for us, our 2 children and their families. Each family enjoyed their private bedroom & bath. The beach was beautiful, and the kids enjoyed the pool. My only complaint is some of the bedding was worn and I thought it was outrageous to pay $13.50 to replace a lost parking pass we needed for the last 2 days of our stay. TUPELO is the correct spelling of our hometown.

Location is great, but the condo needs some updating and repairs.

While the condo we stayed in definitely needs some updating we enjoyed our stay. We had a couple of problems (remote in the living room wasn't working, uncomfortable beds) it wasn't anything that we felt the need to call about. The location of the condo<br/> is great! We've stayed at Surfside Shores in the past and I'm sure we will in the future. The people at Bender Realty were great to work with.

beach location was great easy access to beach pool. Just issues with the furnishings they are pretty run down we were afraid they would break while we were there. Concern about the balconey railing with a 2 year old the opening between the rails (6" versus 4") would have let them fall through had to really watch while outside on balconey.

Although we prefer to stay in Central or Eastern Gulf Shores, the location was still good, and the property manager was very helpful. The unit was clean with amenable accomodations. The master bedroom needs a replacement curtain rod above the balco

I was extremely disappointed with this property. The amenities in the kitchen left much to be desired. The poor quality of the pots did not allow for us to cook. The dishwasher worked periodically. The toaster only toast one side of the bread. There was a mop, but not a mop bucket. The appearance of the condo was old and antiquated. For one thing we could not watch our DVD's because the condo only has VHS recorders. Who uses VHS tapes anymore. The kids really were bummed out by that. The furniture, namely the chairs on the balcony were of poor quality. My son who is average weight fell because the chair cracked. Overall, I was not pleased at all with this unit. We tried to make the best of our week in Gulf Shores, but with so much disappointment in Surf Side Shores, we were not happy vacationers. Its sad because I have been coming to Gulf Shores for over 7 years and have really had great condos. This one sure needs to be taken off the market and remodeled.

Great Stay!

I will advise anyone that is renting this property to bring extra toilet paper as only 1 roll per bathroom is provided. Overall we had a great time and would stay here again. Also, this property did not have DVD players...only VHS players.

Our condo was a three bedroom, and yes there were three bedrooms, but there was barely enough room for three people to walk around. It was too small with too much stuff. The master bath was a joke - you couldn't stand in front of the mirror if the closet was open. The furniture was old and worn and not very comfortable. The carpet needs replacing (hard to tell if it was filthy or just stained - but it was definitely worn. The TVs (all three of them) were so old that a DVD player could not be hooked up. You couldn't sell those TVs at a garage sale for $10. They did have VCR's we just didn't think to get the VCR tapes out of moth balls. The entire condo was dusty. The refridgerator made LOTS of noise. The electrical outlet on the balcony did not work. I probably wouldn't stay there again if it was free!

We would stay here again!

Great price for a 3bdrm 3 bath condo-plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms could use ceiling fans to circulate the air better--it got a little stuffy. Also, closet door in back bdrm broken, and way too much mold in the master bath. The living room was pretty dark--the lampshades are red so it was hard to read in the evening. Otherwise, the location, pool, and everything else was great.

I was over all very pleased with our condo. I do however feel that EVERY single room absolutely needs a ceiling fan, or atleast access to box fans- we went and purchased two ourselves. The stay would have been more pleasant had we had one. I read in an ealier post about the Master bedroom closet door not working-- it is still broken. If it has been mentioned before- then measures to fix it should be taken- its a door- not exspensive piece to replace at all. I also noticed that the floors were not very clean. There were peices of paper and such in the carpet in the Master bedroom. Again--pride in your work equals a happy guest. The door in the fridge was broken-- didnt realize how important that was until there wasnt one-- there is a piece of duck tape taped where that bar should be-- not really that helpful. The Grill area is nice a big-- there should be some sort of a canopied area where guest and get under away from the heat of grill and sun, with maybe a picknic table area to eat or help prepare foods. The pool area was nice. We went at a time when the beach wasnt very crowded! It was great!!

We rented this 3br/ 3 bth condo so that everyone traveling with us would have their own bedroom and bathroom. This was the greatest convenience of all. The condo itself is older however the owners have done a great job decorating it to help make it look more modern. The master bathroom tub could use more grout work. Overall, we were pleased with the condo and location. Bender Realty were very nice and helpful. If I don't stay at this exact condo again in the future I will definately use Bender Realty for my next booking.

Great condo right on the beach. My family loved it and can't wait to return next year.

I think that u need to tell people that you only accept one credit card. I did read everything but it isnt clear, I didnt take it as that you can only use 1 credit card so that needs to be told up front by the person that is taking the reservation. I would not recommend using your realty office to reserve any property because of the fact that you only accept one credit card. I didnt understand why your credit card company won't allow you to accept more than one credit card because you finish paying the amount when you check in. It just didn't make any sense and I almost had to cancel my reservation due to this.

Brackets on the refrigerator door were all broken off and could not put anything in the door. Had trouble with washer and dryer bouncing all over the place and making a loud noise. Realty did give us a new coffeepot and blankets. We enjoyed ourself and had a great view from front and back of condo. Even though we had a few problems the realty was real nice. Appreciated that.
