First, the weather was absolutely beautiful for our entire stay. The condo at Crystal Shores was on an east corner so the wraparound view of the gulf and bay were wonderful. The condo was clean and we couldn't ask for a better location. It contained everything we needed, even though much of the kitchenware and appliances were outdated and mismatched, they were perfectly functional, which is most important. The furniture was extremely comfortable and the lay-out was perfect. I would definitely stay here again. Bender Realty is an excellent company to deal with for our rental needs.

The staff at Bender were extremely nice. The ladies answered our questions and said to not hesitate to call if we needed anything. We had a 9th floor corner view of the ocean. It was great. Condo was very clean and we had only a minor issue but wasn't worth of calling someone. The wifi went out on Thursday, no issue for us. Parking was never an issue and it was clean and safe. Satellite tv was easy to operate, seating on the balcony was good. Beach access was a short walk to the water. Beach was nice and clean. Most importantly, the water was warm! We certainly would consider using the same condo again.

This was the second year that we have spent January and February in this wonderful condo. A beautiful location on the beach this east end unit has a bright, cheerful appearance on the 9th floor with a wonderful wrap-around balcony. A beautiful place to walk the beach virtually every day We just signed up for our third year in 2017.

We loved celebrating Christmas at Crystal Shores! This was our first stay at this property and 901 was very comfortable and inviting. The kitchen was well stocked with most everything a cook needs. We cook 99% of our meals when visiting, so this is a big bonus for us.

The location was great. We've never stayed in this part of Gulf Shores before, but traffic was not an issue.

With kids, a pool is important, especially an indoor pool at this time of year. The indoor pool at this property is rather small and adjoined the outdoor pool, which was a drawback to our kids, but the outdoor hot tub was great.

Overall, we had a great time at this property and would go back. Many thanks to Bender Realty. Those ladies are the best!

This has been our 3rd year staying in GS at Crystal Shores unit 901. We love Bender Realtor and will continue to do business with them, however, I'm not sure if we'll stay at 901 again. The weekly rate continues to increase yearly but the condo appears to deteriorate each year as well. I reported all issues to Bender and I have no doubt they will do what they can (providing the owner agrees) to correct/fix issues. IE;, husband had to fix both toilets in bathrooms, would not flush. He said it was the flushing mechanism and he's pretty handy so he just fixed it rather than having a stranger come in while we were gone. Small table on deck was broke as well as one of the chairs. Blinds would not close in the living room/kitchen. Towel rack missing from bathroom but found under the sink. Bathtub had been patched but still very soft as if your foot will break through. I used the shower in main bathroom. Nothing that hindered us having a great time at the property, just aggravated that the price increases but the Condo deteriorates. Beautiful view saw dolphins every day, restaurants close and one is better than the other, all have great food...We will definitely go back to GS just not sure about 901 in Crystal Shores.

Manager's Response

Crystal Shores is a lovely property with close proximity to the beach and local restaurants. We have indeed taken note of the issues you mentioned and will address them immediately. Please contact Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the beach, and we will happily assist you in finding the perfect condo for your and your family!

Loved the corner unit with large wrap around balcony. Was a wonderful stay. Unit was nice and roomy. If I have to mention any negatives, the only one was the water draining from tubs was really slow. But that's typcial at the beach. Probably time to clean the sand out of the p-traps. Also could use another balcony chair or two. Highly recommend this rental!

Our condo was indeed our home away from home. Although there were some minor concerns right away, they were promptly addressed. Bender Realty and the condo owner were both very responsive to our concerns. The view from this property is outstanding and the location was great with restaurants and entertainment in close proximity. Our experience can be explained easily -- we have already re-booked for this time next year.

Loved the room and building. Right on the beach with the indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub, it was great. As a young couple we were a little disappointed in Gulf Shores though. There was not a whole lot of night life in late October and the whole city shut down at 9. However if you are looking for a relaxing time with a BEAUTIFUL view this is the place for you.

The condo was great. Had everything we needed. The only thing I would change is to not have the tv set back into the cabinet. It needed a shelf that would bring it forward so that the volume was a little higher. Set on the highest setting it was still difficult to hear good.

Fabulous!!! Thank you for the ease of rental and check-in. My husband loved the access to the beach, the carts to haul everything but the kitchen sink. kids loved the pools when the ocean got a little much! I loved having coffee on the deck each morning watching the ocean and having clean clothes to unpack when we got home!

My mom and I needed to get away after a difficult year. We decided on Gulf Shores because neither of us had ever been there. Some good friends of mine recommended Bender Realty Co. and we found them to be very accommodating to us and our needs. We stayed in the Crystal Shores condominium #901. The condo is at the top of the condo complex and therefore has a beautiful view of the Gulf.The condo itself was very nice and the kitchen was fairly well stocked but did lack a bottle/can opener and wine cork remover. I also suggest you bring extra towels (dish,bath,hand and washcloths) and there are no beach towels
provided. The beds are very comfortable and there are a variety of activities on the beach and along Gulf Shores road. We visited the first 3 weeks of March and the weather was sli-
ghtly cool- between 43 and 70.We would definitely come back to this complex again,
but next time,later in March or early April so we can swim in the Gulf.

I am a frequent visitor to Gulf Shores and this was by far my best experience in quite some time. The property was in excellent condition, and the corner view from the 9th floor balcony was awesome. We plan to come back next year at the same time and stay in the same unit.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay in Gulf Shores. The condo was clean, with bright beachy dcor. The view was fantastic on the wrap-around balcony. The kitchen was stocked well with all the dishes and pots and pans we needed.
A couple suggestions I would have are:
When we picked up our keys, it would have been nice if the company would have specified east or west building. We unpacked all of our luggage, took it up to the 9th floor, and then realized when our key didn't fit the lock, we were at the wrong building. We didn't even know there were two different Crystal Shores buildings.
I would suggest installing a contoured shower curtain rod in the bathrooms, as this would provide additional shower space. Even the kids said the shower space seemed tight.

The pool is very small, but it didn't keep our kids from having a good time. Overall, it was a great condo for a great price.

We had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores, better than we expected. Bender Realty could not have been more helpful. I made server calls there prior to our trip and had a different associate each time and one was nicer than the other. Condo was great and very nicely decorated. Great view and saw dolphins swim by at least 5 days out of the 7 we were there. Convenient location with mini mart just across the street. Could not have been happier with our stay....Plenty to do, visit the Hangout and Lulu's is a must...
