We always enjoy our stay at Sandpiper. We have stayed in unit 7A more than once. This trip we had family in 3 different units. The layout of the complex is perfect, the pool in the center & beach is such close proximity. Far enough away from crowded high rise=crowded beach, close enough to all amenities & restaurants. See y'all next year!

Manager's Response

You are right on all counts! Sandpiper's layout is perfectly designed for gatherings such as yours, and the view from 7A is just wonderful!

We had a very nice vacation at the Sandpiper as always. The only complaint I would have is when we arrived to our unit it was very sandy and one of the beds sheet was on completely wrong and inside out. It seems as the cleaning crew was rushed.

Manager's Response

Sandpiper is quite the property for families who love friendly neighbors and lovely Gulf views. We regret the housekeeping issues you experienced; you are correct in that summer Saturdays are quite busy for the popular Sandpiper. We hope to see you in the near future!

We treated my SIL and BIL to a vacation at the Sand Piper, their favorite vacation spot! The condo was nicely decorated, clean and had wonderful views! The size was just perfect. It was nice to sit outside on the deck and talk to other vacationers. Interesting the majority of folks we met were regulars of the Sand Piper! I give the Sandpiper 5's across the board!

Fabulous condo with great (comfortable) beds. Nicely decorated and updated recently. Close to all the "tourist" things to do in GS - but also where you can find some truly hidden gems on your own. We had a slight run in with the management company owner (he was not informed we would have a Service Dog on premise). Other than that one little thing - it was great time and great experience.

Have been staying at Sandpiper for many years but will be going somewhere else next year. Want the beach front atmosphere and a newer condo. As much as we like Sandpiper, it needs some TLC.
Had numerous issues with Secure Vision.

Manager's Response

We hope you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper 7A is a lovely condo with a great view of the Gulf and a people-friendly atmosphere. We also have many properties with private, beach front balconies, so please give Bender Realty a call when you are ready for a return visit to the Gulf Coast!

Rental was very nice. Check in process with the cleaning service could use some fine tuning. Too many levels of signing off. Felt like we lost a full day on the beach because we were waiting to get the "ok" to "move" into our rental. After that the week was marvelous.

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your Gulf Shores vacation. Sandpiper 7A is a very nice condo in a great, family-friendly property. Condo check in is from 3-5pm in order to give maintenance and housekeeping the needed time to properly check all units.

Stay was great. Disapointed that the jelly fish had control of the beach..several kids were stung. I was told thare was a courtyard where our groul could assemble,(50 Folks). That was not available, the tiny courtyard had a "keep off grass" sign. Too many radios at the pool. Overall, The Sandpiper is a nice place to stay. We would return (if we knew the jelly fish were not there.)

We had a wonderful time in 7A as usual. This was my 17th year to spend a week of my summer in this particular condo. It has always been an enjoyable experience. The condo provides a relaxing, family friendly atmosphere that allows everyone to enjoy a restful week of vacation at the beach. We always meet new people as well as rekindle friendships with people from the past years. Our particular condo is very comfortable, and always updated and in good condition. I've stayed at numerous condos in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area my entire life, but the Sandpiper is my favorite place to stay. Also, the staff at Bender is very helpful and accommodating with any issues that come up with our condo or stay.

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your annual Sandpiper 7A vacation! It is truly a wonderful place for reuniting families and friends. Give us a call when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast and Sandpiper!

Booked for a long weekend and had a great experience. #7A was really nice and property overall has aged well. As expected, beaches were pretty crowded and "people" mix was random. Extremely impressed with Bender and loved the functionality of their smart phone app. The only (small) negative on the unit was that master bedroom's carpet was a little worn and a tack strip was beginning to show at the threshold into bathroom. Again, would recommend to others and would definitely stay there again.

Manager's Response

We're so pleased you enjoyed your vacation in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper is indeed a great condo for a family trip. Please keep Bender Realty in mind for your next visit to the Gulf Coast!

Even before we arrived, we were very pleased with the constant communication from Bender Reality. From the initial contact to the safety check-in telephone call 30 minutes prior to our arrival, it felt as if we were the only customers they had. The calendar on the website helped to create an anticipation for the experience. We found the condo to be fully equipped, clean, easily accessible. The view from our outdoor living area and from the windows inside the condo gave a panoramic view of the beach and the Gulf. Although we did not use the pool, it was inviting. While we were there, we were politely asked by Joe and his crew if they could enter the condo to put up smoke detectors. It was obvious from his conversation he is proud of the Bender organization and touted "it was the best on the coast". Having relatives in the past staying at the Sandpiper and hearing their stories about their wonderful experiences, we are so glad everything they said was true. We sincerely hope in the future to stay at the Sandpiper, particularly in this unit as snowbirds from Louisville, Kentucky.

Manager's Response

We are so pleased that your Christmas at Sandpiper was such an enjoyable experience. The atmosphere at Sandpiper is truly unique, with the view from 7A great. We are indeed proud of the personal service we provide at Bender Realty, and we look forward to the opportunity of working with you again in the future.

This was my 1st time at Sandpiper, but won't be our last! Location is fabulous, pool & beach convenience is phenomenal. The condo is VERY well equipped, owner has thought of everything. Not that we spent an awful lot of time inside, the cleaning fee is steep for what very little they do...(needs a good thorough dusting).

We'll see ya'll next year!

Our overall stay at the sandpiper was wonderful!! This was our 29 the year at the sandpiper. The only complaint I have from this year was how late we got in the condo. 5:00pmI even think it was after five. In our 29 years at the Sandpiper this has never happened before. We checked in at around 12 or 12:30 and the lady at Bender said she would call when our place was ready. We went ahead and bought grocery. We were back at the condo by 2:30, thinking we would get the call. When we got there we notice it was being cleaned. I thought check-in time was 3:00 so we started unloading our things not knowing it would be two hours later before we got in. The two ladies that were in there when we got there left l and another lady came to check and she had to clean it again and then we had to wait on someone else to come and check it again, We waited and waited!!!! This was not the way I wanted to start our vacation. I hope this will not happened next year when we celebrate 30 years at the sandpiper. My mother started this journey 29 nine years ago and it has been a wonderful part of our family. My parents have now gone on to be with The Lord in heaven now and my mother Barbara Casey loved the Sandpiper she never wanted to leave on Saturday. I have now passed on the rental of this condo to my niece. Quinn Hammons and looked forwarded to seeing y'all next summer.

We stayed at the Sandpiper in May so it wasn't as crowded as the summer months. From the beginning the Bender Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Our room was ready when we arrived, clean and extremely comfortable. We loved being right on the beach and having the pool. We went back and forth as we pleased. The pool was the perfect size and my 5 year old loved it. The beach was clean, not crowded at all, had a volleyball net already set up and chairs available upon rental. Sandpiper is close to great restaurants (DeSoto's, Franco' Italian Restaurant, Tacky Jacks and of course you have to eat at Lamberts in Foley which is an easy 15 minute drive.) We will definitely be staying at Sandpiper again. I love the deck that wraps around the entire condo. Even when it rained we were still able to set outside and enjoy watching the ocean. The views are amazing from the front porch. There is even a swing for guests to use downstairs overlooking the beach. Sandpiper is a beautiful and comfortable place that is located close to restaurants and attractions. It really is worth all five stars!

More than that, the folks at Bender are most accommodating and friendly. We like to come to a place that is quiet and relaxing -- our experience was just that. Thank you!!!

Travel Insurance will be offered and it will only be optional. The 30 days before arrival policy is now an industry standard and is a sound provision for the financial security for reservations.

Had a great vacation & 7A is a beautiful unit. The only complaint we had was the king size mattress needs to be replaced or suggest a memory foam pad be put on the bed because there are permanent indentations, so it felt like you were sleeping in a hole. We even tried rotating the mattress but it didn't help.

The only complaint that I have is about my fridge. Our fridge was not cold at all, when the maintence man was in the condo right next to ours I asked him to look at my fridge because it wasn't cold. He didn't go look at it, but told me to turn it down so it can catch up with itself and it should be better. So 24 hours later and now 48 hours with a warm fridge I called the office and the maintence man was sent out. My fridge was eventually fixed but I lost milk and some food due to this. I do have a recommendation- the last night there we had to call security around 130 am because of a suspicious lady roaming around the complex asking for wire hangers and cigarettes. I couldn't find the number to security anywhere in the condo. I knew the name of the company from what I saw on their badges earlier in the week so I looked it up online. The situation was handled beautifully and quickly. I would suggest having that number posted somewhere, maybe on the fridge??

The ONLY problem were the beds! I can sleep most anywhere and do, as I do a lot of travel in my work but I awakened almost crippled each morning from the beds (I would not normally complain but my partner in the other bedroom suffered the same problem) We thought it noteworthy of bringing to your attention.
Otherwise, it was super as always -- we've been staying at this property for some 20 plus years. (never had this bed issue before!)

15 Year Visitor: Overall the stay was great. However, the property does not appear to be managed the same as in the past. Appears that trash is not picked up as often. Loud music during all times of the day and night is very widely done in many rooms and on balconies. Owner in 6A and other guests put beach towels over railing in front of more than one unit on most days. Elevator was out of service many times. There was more beach trash than in past years and beach trash cans are always overflowing, need more than one beach trash can. People appear to be almost living on the beach. Tents are up all of the time and beach gear is piled up in a mess every night. Tents need to come down every night. Some damaged tents never came down. We enjoy the Sandpiper and have for years, it needs more attention than it is getting in order to stay like it has for many years.

It is an ideal place for family and friends to gather for a quite, beautiful time on the beach.

Loved the unit and will stay there again. I was a bit disappointed with the complex itself and the lack of presence of staff. We've stayed at the Sandpiper for many years and there was a noticeable decrease in maintenance and security staff around. Pool had been cleaned daily in prior yrs, wasn't cleaned all week this year. Overall, good stay.
