We absolutely loved our stay here. The location couldn't be better, the apartment could use an update to the decor but the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked and the AC is nice and cold. The only thing we didn't like was that you have to bring the key-fob to get into the pool and to the beach but that's being picky.

The property was pretty outdated but clean. It was as pictured on the site. Management company was pleasant. Condo had all of the cooking utensils and pans. The Security guard was a bit overzealous. Our door was open (the drafts are very stong) for 7 hours and the security guard said "did you mean to leave your door open, its been open all day". I don't understand why she didn't close the door...or do something to mitigate our door being open for 7/8 hours. Walls were thin and we heard people playing loud music well past 10PM.

Accept for the construction on Windows our experience was enjoyable. We chose this condo especially for the Windows to close when cool or open when warm, aBUT even tho our unit was done they still wouldn't let us open the sliders. We would try it again.

Manager's Response

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. While we regret the inconvenience caused by the property maintenance project, we hope that our compensation alleviated some of the inconvenience. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready for a return visit to the Gulf Coast!

The property location was wonderful and I don't think we could have asked for more. The unit we rented was godd, it could use some updating and renovation. The photos showed the balcony chairs having cushions but when we arrived they were not present and we did not contact the rental company to find out where they were because we had brought camping chairs with us. The table and chairs on the balcony need to be upgraded, the table and chairs were the plastic type and should be something more supportive and stronger. The pictures posted online showed 2 bamboo type chairs with cushions and when we arrived no cushions and could not find them. There was what seemed to be a closet on the balcony but we did not have a key to access it which might have contained the chair cushions. There was hand soap provided but might want to consider providing guests with the pump hand soap instead of bar soap. Those are only minor things that we found that could be improved on. Overall we loved the location and other amenities the condo provided. It was great that we could take photo's from our balcony of the sunrise, sunset, dolphins and pelicans. It was great to be able to buy fresh seafood and prepare our dinner meals and eat our freshly prepared seafood dinners on the balcony overlooking the gulf. If the opportunity ever arises we will definitely go back.

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Gulf Tower is a great property with its glass-enclosed balconies and close proximity to local restaurants and attractions. Thank you for your input; condo furnishings do wear out and have to be replaced from time to time. Please call Bender Realty when you begin making plans for a future visit to the Gulf Coast, and we will assist you in finding the perfect condo!

We had a pleasant stay in gulf tower 1b, the unit could use some updating, such as new furniture and kitchen accessories (need new pots and pans, and the toaster only toast one side of the bread, etc.)as for the security guard, she pretty much questions you about your parking passes on a nightly bases, even though u just talked to her, at one point two of the kids (both 13) were playing in the pool and i walked in the pool area from the parking garage and noticed she was just staring at them in the pool with her arms crossed, when i showed up she again questioned me about my parking pass for the 3rd night and left the area, i understand that she is trying to keep the place safe i suppose, but it felt like a bit much. As for every thing else about the stay it was great! We love the area, great access to every thing you could need, and great view of the gulf! We will most likely stay again.

Manager's Response

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. The glass-enclosed balcony at Gulf Tower 1B, along with the large, outdoor pool makes for a nice beach trip. Please give Bender Realty a call when you plan your next Gulf Coast vacation; we have many properties along with Gulf Tower and welcome the opportunity to assist you in finding the perfect condo for you and your family!

Overall the experience was great, the location of Gulf Tower is excellent. Easy access to beach and only 1 mile from main area of Gulf Shores. Pool was perfect. On the negative side the complex has very limited parking (one car per unit) and the condo it self is older and in need of modern updates, but did meet all our needs.

This was our second time using Bender Realty to book our vacation. The staff was great, very nice and helpful. The condo was in a great location and had a great view of the beach. Last year we stayed at The Caribbean, but chose Gulf Tower this year because of the view from the master bedroom. The only thing I would recommend changing about this room would be to have a TV in the second bedroom. With 3 kids that normally watch TV to go to sleep, it was a little difficult but they survived. Other than that we had a great experience and were 100% satisfied. We can't until our next beach vacation!!!!

I have been renting through Bender since the early 1999's. They are always friendly and professional. Jennie and Betty are the best. This specific property could use a deep clean and upgrades. We had trouble with oven, microwave and dishwasher. Other than that we love the size of 1B & 1C together and the location. As always, we'll be back next year!

My experience with Benders was very good. When I arrived, they did not have my reservation, when I produced my confirmation # it was found that whomever booked for me booked in the year 2011; so Gulfside Townhomes was not available to us; I had paid a downpayment, so Benders made good and provided a beautiful condo in Gulf Towers. Excellent stay; Benders handled wonderfully.

Overall was very satisfied with out stay. Great location, condo was clean and comfy. Kitchen stocked with all the dishes needed for our stay. There were only two issues with the condo. The water drains a little slowly in the tubs. So we were standing in ankle deep water by the time showers were finished. The other was the elevators were extremely slow. Luckly we were on the first floor so we took the stairs most of the time. But, overall only minor inconveniences. I would definately recommend this Condo and would come back again.

I rented a condo for the Hangout Fest weekend several months in advance. The original unit was about 0.5 miles from the festival (Island Royale), on the 14th floor, beach front - overlooking the ocean, and allowed two vehicles to park. I was contacted by Bender about a month after securing the condo and notified that it was no longer available and that I was being moved to another unit further down the road. Thankfully there was an available unit close the festival as it was now only 3-4 weeks away and most places were booked. The new unit was 1.5 miles from the venue (Gulf Towers), on the 1st floor, beach front - overlooking the ocean, and only allowed one vehicle to park. Bender provided us with a parking pass so that our 2nd vehicle could park at their office about two blocks away. They also comped us one night for the inconvenience. When we checked in, we inquired about the previous unit was were told that it went into foreclosure and was removed from the rental program. For beach property, our new condo was average; comparable to the rate. The towels were thin and cheap feeling but the bed was comfortable. We usually bring our own pillows on trips. The kitchen was well stocked and the dishes seemed clean but we washed them anyway. The pool area was clean and beach access was private. Our only complaint would be the thin walls (could easily hear our neighbors). Since this was a festival weekend, there was an attendant patrolling the parking area to make sure that only residents were parking there. I didnt see anyone monitoring the pool area and on several mornings there were remnants of late-night partying including someone sleeping on the lounge chairs. Surprisingly, we were never disturbed by the other festival goers. From 10:am to midnight we were either at the beach or at the festival. Our only disturbance came from screaming children playing in the pool at 8:am. If we were not on the 1st floor then it wouldnt have been an issue.

Overall, pretty satisfied.

The rental company was great to work with, but this property had some problems. The guest mattress was very stained, the wicker rocker was very uncomfortable, and when you sat on the couch, you sunk to the floor. HOWEVER, the location was so great that we booked it for next year.

The office was very friendly and helpful during check-in. The condo is right on the beach about a half-mile off the main parkway which is close but not so much that there is a lot of crowding. The condo complex is also fairly small so that is kind of nice as well. The condo was in good condition - by no means immaculate but plenty suitable for most people. The phone needed repair when we were there but it didn't too long and wasn't too big of a deal. The balconies are nice - you can open the doors and feel the sun or close them and stay cool. We were on the first floor - but had no issues with noise from the upper floors. Parking can be a little tight for those of you who drive a large truck or SUV. Overall, we will definitely consider staying here again in the future assuming the pricing is still comparable to other condos around it.

We had a very relaxing and pleasant stay. From the balcony, we had a wonderful view of the ocean, beach, and swimming pool. Due to the building being only 14 floors, we never felt crowded by others. If you are looking for a cozy get away on the beach, this is the place to go. I will definitely go back next year.

We loved the idea of the suite 1a and condo 1b being attached. We were all family members so I was able to enjoy my grandchildren without them being in the condo all the time.

Only one problem, sliding glass door would not slide in 1b. We used the other door from the bedroom, but would have liked the door to slide better.

Pros: Bender Realty-helpful, polite, attentive, fixed things when they said they would, condo: view, space, location, safe, quiet,numerous kitchen supplies, ease of going to beach and pool, elevator, good washer/dryer/fridge/dishwasher, spacious balcony, updates to the outside of Gulf Towers, landscaping
Cons: Condo really beat-up, someone came to check it but air condtioning just didn't function well enough-we had to go purcahase fans to aid it so we could be comfortable, except for couch and rocking chair seat covers looked horrible and need to be replaced-especially balcony seats and table chairs-just embrassingly worn and torn-we just had to grit our teeth and use them-eck!,one car rule made things difficult, bathroom ceilings leaked water as you heard the water flush or turn on sink or shower from above you-another really icky thought!, this condo just needs to have a checklist of updating and fixing before next peak season-just not enough "oh, I love this place" thoughts for the money!I would not ask for this unit again and that makes me sad.
I would use Bender again because you have the best pricing, polite and helpful staff in person and on the phone, and really try to give the guest a good experience.

We really enjoyed sitting on the patio under the ceiling fan and watching the waves come in. I would stay here again.

We had a lovely time staying in this condo for the third year in a row. It is located on a beautiful spot on the beach, clean, and has all the amenities that you would expect. We did find that the remote control for the tv in the guest room does not work properly, the toilet paper hanger in the hall bath is missing and the rug in the kitchen needs to be cleaned or replaced due to numerous stains, but otherwise, we have always been very pleased. Oh, also, it's about time to replace that lumpy mattress on the pull-out couch. We look forward to our next trip!

The air conditioner did not work very well... we did not call the owners, so I can not tell you how they would've responded... overall, we enjoyed our stay... this was our 2 yr old's first beach trip and the condo's were beachfront.

The condo smelled like someone smokes in it . The smell gave me a sore throat and sinus problems

In this unit the master bedroom bed is absolutely horrible. It is extremely uncomfortable probably due to its age and very small for a master bed. All the bedding in this condo was extremely worn and really worn and grubby looking.

The refrigerator in this unit caused concern for frozen food we purchased in bulk. It did not keep ice cubes frozen at all times even at the recommended mid-range settings. Also, we replaced the batteries in two wall clocks and the bedroom remote. The vacuum cleaner bag was packed full of dirt. We were able to find replacement bags in Fairhope at the hardware store. This unit needs a bit attention to details.

we had no cable tv in our room and were told we would get a price adjustment, but we never received one nor we contacted about it like we were told we would be.
