We rented this condo at the last minute for Labor Day weekend. The company we booked it through was excellent to work with. The people were very friendly amd would definately gonthrough them again. As far as the condo itself...I would not rent this one again. For the price we paid we wouldve liked to have something a bit more updated. We were a little disappoimted when we walked in. It is so close to the bottom of the building that you can hear everytime someone comes and goes from the pool by the slam of the gate and unfortunately that starts very early in the morning . We had a good stay. We would just use this company but book a different condo.

Great getaway!

A great condo with a million dollar view, right on the beach. Bender was wonderful and took care of our every need promptly, and with a smile. We've already booked with Bender for next year and doubled our time of stay. Thanks Bender for making everything so enjoyable and easy for us!

Manager's Response

We are so pleased you enjoyed your winter getaway in Gulf Shores! Gulf Tower 1C is a great little studio unit with a private, beach front balcony. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Everything was simple and everyone we had to deal with was very polite. We did not like the ceiling in Gulf Tower 1C in the kitchen and bathroom areas. The water pressure in the shower was painfully strong. Other than that, we loved it there.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Gulf Tower 1C is one of the few studio condos in Gulf Shores and a good deal for a small party, with its beach front balcony. Thank you for your input. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!

We stayed in the studio apartment and absolutely loved it. The three of us (husband, wife and daughter) were able to share quality time together in the open space. The kitchen was surprisingly larger than we anticipated and the Refrigerator was full size, not dormitory. We were quite pleased with the room, the location, the convenience to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. We would definitely return. Our only complaint would be the size of the parking lot.

Manager's Response

We're so pleased that you enjoyed your Gulf Shores vacation. Gulf Tower 1C is an excellent option for families wanting to economize, with a private, beach front balcony. Be sure to give Bender Realty a call when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!

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. 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 met all our needs. Had a minor issue this unit above us but it was quickly and professionally resolved.

Manager's Response

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Gulf Tower 1C is a great efficiency-type unit with a full, beach front, private balcony. Please call Bender Realty when you plan a return trip to the Gulf Coast!

It was really nice, the people were very nice and helpful. Great people were also staying there. It wasn't noisy and a great spot on the beach. Loved how you could listen to the beach and only few feet away to get on the beach. Everyone was nice and I really enjoyed it. They had everything you really needed it was provided. I brought stuff I didn't even need. It was really fun and nice stay. I really enjoyed my stay and would come back to stay. It was a great location to get in town to. Easy to get around and find places. It was private to a point where it wasn't over crowded. It was a wonderful place to stay. Roomy and comfy bed to sleep in at night. Very nice place to stay I'd reccomend it to anyone if they wanted a nice place to stay in Gulf Shores, Al. Wonderful place.

Manager's Response

We are so pleased that you had such a great time in Gulf Shores. Gulf Tower is indeed a great location with close access to the beach and the local restaurants and activities. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!

The unit was decent. But comparing it to our other families we traveled with that were staying at other places felt it was over priced. For 2 to $300 more they had 2 and 3 bedrooms, washer and dryers,3 TVs, nice and updated kitchens, bathrooms etc. So we just basically slept at our place and spent the majority of our time at theirs. Our place was very dated and was just a 1 room place, like a hotel room with 1 bed and a fold out couch. It worked but will make a different choice next year for sure.

Manager's Response

Gulf Tower 1C is indeed a studio unit, as described on our website and portrayed in the pictures provided. Bender Realty has many other, fully-equipped condos in Gulf Towers and in other properties. For future visits, give us a call, and we will be happy to help you find the condo that will best fit your family's needs.

This is a decent place to stay for those last minute unplanned getaways when you don't have a bunch of money available for a nicer place. The unit isn't completely terrible, but could definitely use some TLC. A relatively small investment could make a big difference here. For example a new coax cable from the wall to the TV so that you could watch TV without having wiggle the cable to get reception. The white grating on the ceiling is rusty and could use some paint. The base boards under the sink in the bathroom need to be repaired. It would be nice to have some new hard-wired ceiling fans without the chain/cable draped along the wall and ceiling and plugged into an outlet. My biggest issue with this unit is the open grates on the ceiling. The water / drain pipes from the other units are right above it. All through the night you can hear every flush and shower as the water runs through the pipes. It's surprisingly loud and kept me from a good sleep. At first I thought we had a massive leak.
On the positive side, the unit does have great water pressure in the shower. The balcony is nice and large. The sliding doors are nice to be able to close when people in the pool get loud at night. The boardwalk to the beach was very nice and in good shape. The location is great and the staff at Bender Realty were a joy to deal with. I'm not sure I'd stay in this unit again, but I'll definitely look for other properties managed by Bender.

Our stay was great at Gulf Tower. Our room faced the beach and had a great view of the ocean. The room we stayed in was ok but needed to be updated, like the furniture and carpet. I didn't really like that the bathroom had a plastic grate ceiling that you could see the plumbing and bottom of the floor above the room. Be prepared to bring your own towels and toiletries because they do not replace what has been used. A little inconvenient but we would stay there again.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with this condo. We had originally booked a different condo that was closer to the Hangout Festival. There was a problem with the owners of that condo, and we were moved to this one. I was a bit upset because we were staying with another couple, and we were now sharing a studio apartment. There was ZERO privacy. It would be a great condo for just one couple or a small family, though. I also have to say that Bender was very sweet about it, and refunded me some of my money for the inconvenience.

I was also scared when I saw the pictures of the place. The pictures DEFINITELY need to be updated. It looks much better in person. It is very very clean, but it needs to be updated. There is no dishwasher, which was a bit of a pain. Also all of the dishes were ceramic and glass, which were not allowed at the pool or anything- I'd recommend bringing some plastic cups and paper plates.

The location was AMAZING. Right on the beach. I really enjoyed the patio in the mornings. The pool was lovely, and the beach was perfection. If you are renting this place for Hangout Fest, know that this is quite the walk! We were told it was a mile away but it was actually 1.4 miles, which means that its about a 3 mile walk every day. So be prepared!

Overall our stay was much better than expected, but the condo could use some updating and it was a little further than I had hoped for.

Nice size and price for a couple wanting to get away for a few days. View was great and the room was fine. We did miss having a washer/dryer so next time I would book a room with washer/dryer since we did stay for the week. The balcony was great but we thought it would be more enjoyable if it had something out there besides the plastic chairs. It is such a nice balcony with the glass sliding doors. We like spending more time out there than sitting in the room. Weather was great and we had a great time.

My 10 year old daughter and I had so much fun, she doesn't want to wait a whole year to come back. We loved our room right on the beach and it was so affordable, we may change this to a quarterly mother daughter trip! Bender Realty made everything so easy.

Upon arrival we could smell a order which I thought was a sewer like smell. I finally figured out that it was coming from the drain that was for the washing machine (washer and dryer had been removed from this unit)I poured some water down the drain and stuffed it with a rag and we never smelled the odor again. Unit could use some updates and needs washer/dryer.

we didn't have enough towels there were no trash bags or tissue paper. we didn't have any dish washing liquid. However the veiw was great and the room was just what we wanted. it would have been nice if it had been stocked with a few more things.

this property was clean but when we stayed last year it had a washer and dryer this it did not and no mention was made of this when we rented this year. And we were still charged the same price. Also there were very few dishes or cooking supplies.

Manager's Response

Sorry for the misunderstanding. The unit description does not include a washer and dryer. The w/d unit in there was removed and not replaced. For future reference, the owner does not plan on replacing the w/d - and it is advertised as not having a w/d.

Almost Satisfied

Bender Realty and Staff were excellent.
Price was reasonable.
Property needed simple repairs that would have made stay less frustrating.

It was very clean, just a bit aged/getting old. We don't cook much while we're there, but if we did I would have been disappointed at what was available in the kitchen.

Property is in a good location and very convenient. Furnishings could be better and the television is terrible. Unit needs a DVD player and not a VCR that is at least 10 years old.
