Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay. Sandpiper is a great condo unit, with a great set up. We were very satisfied with the property’s general condition. The location of the property is wonderful. The condo property is clean and well kept. The rental management company is very helpful and kind. Easy to work with. The cleanliness of the condo was pretty good.
I would recommend that scooters or any type of item with wheels not be allowed on the decks of the condos. Not only were they noisy, they are inconsiderate to the other guests staying there who are staying at the condos trying to relax or visit with others. Also, riding them after quiet hours up and down the decks was irritating. Besides the scooter situation we had a wonderful time and a great stay in Gulf Shores at The Sandpiper! We will definitely be back!

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Sandpiper. It is indeed a special place, and unit 13A is very nicely appointed. Scooters and such items are NOT permitted on the balconies at Sandpiper, and as soon as it was reported to us, security was sent immediately to stop their use. Our 24-hour service is provided for just such instances.

Great unit, super easy access to beach and pool. Can sit on the deck and watch your kids play in the pool, and be close enough to yell to them.
Great for families. Only downside of the stay is that a large youth group was staying across the way and played loud music outside their unit and was very loud late into the night. Also times when other people were playing loud music at the pool during the day when we preferred to relax low key. That probably happens everywhere, though.

Another amazing week at the Sandpiper. Our only concern was TV issues with room that bender realty tried to fix. And a few items were taken during the night, flip flops for us and others things from friends we were with. Never havr had that bbq in 30+ years. Overall fantastic week and we will return.

We had four persons occupy this unit over a four day weekend. One person utilized the pull out sofa with both ease and comfort. All appliances were in great working order, and we had all the plates, bowls, glasses, cups and utensils we needed. The WiFi was excellent and the television was in good working order. We experienced no maintenance issues while in the unit. I would gladly use it again.

We had a group of 30 that came to see my youngest daughter get married on the beach.All the rooms were a little different but all were large enough for us to do what we needed. They were basically clean, could have used a little elbow grease around floorboards and on the walls but I'm a clean freak so that just may be me. We had an amazing time the entire week. All our neighbors were kind and joined in on the celebration.

Manager's Response

We are so glad that you enjoyed such a special occasion here in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper is a great location for family gatherings, and 13A has a nice view of the Gulf. Please remember Bender Realty when you start thinking about a future Gulf Coast vacation!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Sandpiper and have already recommended to several people. Sandpiper is located right on the Gulf and has an excellent view of the beach. The property is well kept up and clean. The location is close to many choices of restaurants, area attractions, and beautiful sunsets. Bender Realty staff are very friendly and very helpful. I especially enjoyed Lulu's for a hamburger, DeSoto's for fish, Mikee's for shrimp. and Hog Wild BBQ for pulled pork sandwiches.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you had such a great time at Sandpiper. It truly is a great location for beach access and close proximity to all of the best restaurants as you listed! Please give Bender Realty a call when you begin planning you next trip to the Gulf Coast!

We have been vacationing at the Sandpiper for over 17 yrs. Sometimes we have been there twice in one year. It is a wonderful place to enjoy the beach. The complex is perfect for a couple or for an entire family. In fact, we have already reserved a condo for 2015.

Beautiful remodeled condo (only thing not updated was carpet in bedrooms) great location- close to everything, but far enough down the strip to have a less crowded beach. Condo is located close to stairs that lead to the beach. Well stocked - had everything we needed. Only things that would make it better- would be keyless entry (keycode)- the lock was difficult to open & a large mat by the door when you first walk in to help keep sand from being tracked through condo. Pool was smaller than we thought, but plenty big enough for kids to have a blast. Bahama Bob's is right down the street & has the BEST food!!! We will definitely stay in this condo again.

I would describe our vacation stay at 13A somewhat disappointing. Every night the tenants above us in 13B sounded like they were demolishing the place. They would get even louder around midnight. It was very disappointing how rude they were. 13A needs some serious attention given to the appliances and kitchen items. Thank god my wife insisted we bring a few pans and items to make the trip seem a little better. The stove and dishwasher need replaced. Ceiling fans would be nice in the bedrooms. The tile floors are cracked in several places, not a big deal but makes the place look cheap.

13A could use a new tv in living rm & A new couch.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay. The kids loved the heated pool and most units allow a view of the pool to keep an eye on the kids. The unit itself needed some updating with the appliances and pots and pans. Not a big deal though. We have already booked for next year.

We have stayed at sandpiper several times and have always been pleased. Our stay this time was great all except for the Spring breakers above us. We did not get sleep and they were in and out at all times of the night and early morning not to mention the fact we could hear them getting sick in the restroom!!! I thought this was more of a family oriented place to stay and that is why we continue to stay here. We will think hard about coming back in the spring if you continue to rent to college age. Other than the spring break incident we love sandpiper!!!

The only concern we had was that they allowed guests to set up their cabanas in front of the rented beach chairs thus blocking our view and access to the water. We understand that other properties prohibit the cabanas from being placed in front of the line of rental chairs. This rule was either not in place or not enforced at Sandpiper. If other properties can enforce the location of the cabanas, we would think the Sandpiper could do so as well. Please consider making this a rule and thereby giving a copy of the rule to guests when they check in. Other than that, we love the Sandpiper.
