Delivering exceptional vacation rentals and property management since 1986

As one of the oldest and most established rental agency on the Gulf Shores, we pride ourselves on giving our homeowners and our guests that extra special attention they deserve. We have owners that have partnered with us for more than 30 years. We proudly manage each of our properties as if it were one of our own. Bender Realty has a full staff of very qualified and experienced professionals that are native to Gulf Shores or migrated here many years ago and know the area well. Our in-house maintenance and housekeeping departments work together to communicate with our staff and owners to be sure the greatest care is being provided to your property. We ensure your property is prepared for arrivals and maintain it while vacant.

Walk-Ins Welcome

Our office is conveniently located nearby our managed properties for an easy check in/out process for all guests. We're always grateful to meet our guests upon check-in or to catch up with our owners over coffee.

We Treat You Like Family

Size matters. Our company isn't so big that we're too busy to answer the phone. If you want to speak to us personally, we’re just down the street or a phone call away.

Personalized Customer Care

Being located on West Beach Boulevard allows us to greet our guests and address their needs quickly, which results in better reviews and raving fans.
