Sandpiper 8A is perfect for enjoying the company of family and friends around the pool, but also good for quiet relaxation on its private, beach front balcony.

Bender Realty is always great to work with. This is our 2nd year at Sandpiper, but 1st time in 8A. We already booked this unit again for 2020! The location is perfect, beach access so easy, the view from the deck is fantastic, the swing on the deck was a favorite, and the pool was great. We meet so many nice people each visit. It is a great place to stay and we will be coming back for years!
Suggestions to fix: main bath had anchors in the wall but missing the towel bar, the removable shower head in main bath is pulling out of the wall so bangs constantly each time used.

Manager's Response

Sandpiper is a terrific property for enjoying family time in Gulf Shores, and the private, beach front balcony of 8A just can't be beat. Thank you for your input; the items you mentioned have already been addressed. We look forward to seeing you next year!

We so enjoyed our time at Sandpiper for Thanksgiving! The rental was well furnished, comfortable, and fantastic access to the beach. The porch swing was a great way to spend our mornings and evenings. The bedrooms were comfortable and provided ample space for our family. We would definitely recommend working with Bender Vacation Rentals and plan to come back to Gulf Shores for Thanksgiving holidays again!

Love it. Awesome view and great condo and fellow guests. Condo was clean and well stocked. Everything worked, plenty of room, and nice furnishings. Rented for next Jan. and Feb. Only complaints....Would have loved sunning by pool and hopefully next year Mother Nature will cooperate. Benders are super and are just a phone call away for assistance. Thank you Benders and "Wally's" family. Sandpiper 8A made for a wonderful home away from home. See you next year. Carla and Emmett

We love Sandpiper! It is a wonderfully ran complex. We have stayed here both trips to Gulf Shores Oct 2016 & Oct 2017. This condo (8a) was very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. We really enjoyed the deck and swing. However, additional seating is needed on the deck. Bender Realty is so nice to work with and very accommodating.

The condo was a great place to stay. It was nicely decorated (loved the turtle table), beds were comfortable, kitchen well furnished and the swing on the deck was nice. Great views from the living room. It would have been nice to have more seating on the deck and a cushion in the swing. The bathrooms were large. Overall it was a spacious condo and very comfortable and clean. Loved it!

Great complex and condo. Perfect location...easy access to beach, pool and parking. We had an intermittent issue with the door lock the first night and it was taken care of promptly on Sunday. Great food throughout the week (Shipps, Beach House Kitchen, Live Bait, Bahama Bob's, Hazel's Diner, Acme Oyster House....and the Broken Egg in Fairhope) and some good entertainment, too. (Best music discovery was Winston Ramble!!) Took a dolphin cruise (with Cold Mil Fleet in Orange Beach) and had a great experience. This was a "Sister Week" at the beach and it was near-perfect weather...only one rainout plenty of opportunities for walking on the beach and enjoying the deck and private balcony, along with the beach and pool. I have been to this complex many times and always have had a good experience.

We had a great stay in Gulf Shores. This was our very first trip to this area and it will not be our last one !!! The condominium was just perfect. All of the people that we encountered were all very friendly. There was a great selection of restaurants to choose from and plenty to do on the days that we were not relaxing at the pool or hanging out on the beach. We also enjoyed going to the Shrimp Fest. We will definitely be back.

Manager's Response

We hope that you enjoyed your winter vacation in Gulf Shores. As with your prior stay, the charge for your first vehicle pass is included in your reservation price; the second pass is an additional fee. Sandpiper 8A has an outstanding view of the Gulf and is located in a great, people-friendly property. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!

The title says it all. Thanks for all your diligence in making this possible after the initial "no can stay" in 8B for that time slot. 8A worked well sans no twin beds but my final week guests used their initiative and had a wonderful time, also. Never know what next year brings, but we always hope to return to the Sandpiper. Thanks. Bobbi Carmody

We spent 2 weeks at Sandpiper and enjoyed our stay. For the most part things were good, however, we felt the condo could use some updating and minor repairs. The furniture is beginning to sag and is uncomfortable, especially for those of us who are older. The turntable in the microwave didn't work, the lid on the washer didn't open all the time, the commode in the smaller bedroom didn't flush properly and the lock on the master BR door didn't lock as it should. The lock has been a problem for a while because others had mentioned it in the "log" for guests. The bed in the master BR was comfortable which meant a lot to us and we love the porch with the swing which was a big drawing point for us. The property appeared to be clean and the location is great, close to everything. Some of our favorite restaurants were Desoto's and Wolf Bay Lodge and of course Lamberts. The Navy Air Museum is a must to see and it's free and so close. The one thing we noticed was that some people had dogs with them and according to the "rules" given us, animals were not allowed.One person with a dog was an owner (she said) and now we wonder why there are two sets of rules. We found the property management company to be very professional and helpful. Yes, we would go back and would recommend it to others.

We have stayed at the Sandpiper many times before and always enjoy ourselves. This time the only comment I would make is that we were disappointed to have an owner near us with their dog. We rent other properties with "no pet" policies and this is more to our liking. We question the wisdom of the HOA policy??

Love Bender & Sandpiper. Keypad lockout at exactly 10 am is not practical. Stuff happens - like snow and ice all over the parking lot. Make people pay if they run late, but don't lock them out. What if a baby was left inside? And please POST the office phone number somewhere visible for when it happens. Everything else was perfect - cold, but perfect!!

WE GO WITH A LARGE GROUP & IT NEVER FAILS SOMEONE GETS A UNIT THAT IS UGLY OR DIRTY. WE TRY & GET THE SAME UNIT EVERY YEAR & HAVE HAD PRETTY GOOD LUCK. I MUST SAY THAT EVERY TIME I CALL TO THE OFFICE THEY ARE ALWAYS SUPER NICE & SPEEDY TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT.

The view of the beach from our own balcony was great.We could watch our grand-kids in the pool from our deck outside our room. Just a wonderful experience. As we were leaving, our kids were all asking "mom, dad, when can we do this again?"

We love the unit location and the atmosphere of the Sandpiper. There was a section of carpet along the seam that was torn up and our 4 yr old tripped over it all week. Also, the furniture in the living room hasn't changed for years. Other that that, we love the unit and the property and will be back again next year!

This is the second time we have stayed at the Sand Piper and we will be back. The apartments are clean and usually fully stocked with essentials. This time we did not have any coffee filters for the first morning. This could have been a problem for someone who had never stayed there. Would like to see a TV channel listing. These are small things. Overall this is a great place to stay and enjoy the beach,

The sandpiper is like our home away from home. w

The view from the balcony every morning was spectacular. Sitting on the balcony swing with a cup of coffees gave us views of the dolphins swimming in the gulf. We have been coming to Sand Piper for about 6 years now and Bender has never let us down. All
of the decking has been replaced and that was a nice surprise. It was a quiet and great week for us. Thank You!

I have stayed in this unit several times and enjoy the balcony view. However the decor is dated and the room really needs a new look. I have seen several other units that are up to date and don't have the "80's" look. I think this would help a lot for the owners to revamp.

We have enjoyed Gulf Shores, Sandpiper, for many many years. The oil spill was not going to derail our trip this year. There was some tar balls on the beach and a few wet clumps. We still ejoyed ourselves and will be back next year.

Enjoyed our stay very much. We have stayed at the SP many times before. In fact we stayed at this same unit on our first visit in Sept.'89.

Enjoyed the stay this year. First time in condo 8A. Only negative was the counter over the toilet. I'm glad I'm thin.

We really enjoyed our week in 8A at the Sandpiper. This was the first time we booked our week after the prime time season. It was unbelievable. The weather was fantastic, the water was clear and no jellyfish. The only suggestion I have is to replace the coffee maker with one that is programable & pause & serve. Other than that, It don't get any better!

Great property...beautiful ocean and beach view from the room and the porch swing. Would be more convenient if they would designate parking spaces to units...last one in was out of luck! Also, instructions for using the DVD player would be helpful!

Door to deck needs maintenance. Bathroom in bedroom: Tub enclosure needs repair/replacement as well as plumbing fixtures.

kitchen equipment, for example coffee maker, blender and baking pans, were less than satisfactory and the air ducts gave off a mildewy smell. Also, the bathtubs were not real clean; there was mildew around soapdish and fixtures and hair in the drain. A wonderful place to vacation despite these minor irritations.

Had a good time with daughter's family and grandkids. A kiddie pool would of made it a 5 star, but otherwise very nice family condo on the beach. Beds were a little uncomfortable, but lots of couch and sitting areas in family room. This is probably the best of the room locations in the building, I'd try for it next time.

The mattress on the bed in the 2nd bedroom was uncomfortable

Hi, I have always loved the sandpiper. I have been coming there as often as I can since 1990 or 91ish. I have even brought a 2nd generation with me this year. (smiling). i was a bit hesitant to write this because I love the people and the piper so much this is hard for me to write. but here it goes. I wish the pool was working. I know the weather was really windy but nobody from the office offered us a chance to use a pool even once at a different location..we were tld every day that it would be up and warm the next day. the room had a beautiful view but the person staying there before us used illegal drugs and we found it under one of the leather rocking/recliner chairs. If I was a drug person i could have sold what we threw away in the garbage for several hundred dollars. So you can see why it took me awhile to write this. it isn't a very pleasnt letter to write to a place i have considered my little piece of heaven on earth. I Hope that next time we come which we were thinking about this summer or fall depending on my health of course, that maybe the couple of things would be taken care of. I really do love gulf shores but the sandpiper like i said is my piece of heaven on earth. I hope you have a beautiful summer and hope to see everyone again soon. Catherine

I actually rented two condos for me, my sister, my daughter and four grandchildren. Another friend and her two children rented the third condo at the same time. We all had a wonderful time. The Sandpiper is a very family-friendly location. We have stayed there for about 7 years. We always have a great experience. Thanks for asking.Pat Frame
