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.

I love the beach view, we were over the pool little mousey, but ok!
Alan E.on 08/13/2016
Great location and view. The studio was a little tired feeling and feels like it needs an update. Overall we had a good stay.

Nice easy access from first floor and very good beach & pool view. Bed was comfortable and room was very clean. A/C & everything else worked just fine. Great price for a nice view! Bender Reality was nice to work with and Would stay again.

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!

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.

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.

I have stayed at Gulf Tower approx 7 - 8 times. This was my least pleasurable experience. The Bender staff was helpful and nice. However, our condo was underwhelming. The unit doesn't have a dishwasher (not stated ahead of time), washer or dryer. The balcony is slightly larger than what's available in the 2-br units. For the price, I highly recommend upgrading to a 2-br unit. 2-br units are only about $35/night more in peak season. The parking situation is also inconvenient for any visitors to the complex. No additional parking is allowed.

it was really great, very convenient and beautiful location.
victoria d.on 05/09/2015
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.

Enjoyed our stay and price very reasonable

Overall, it was great. We did have an unexpected guest, the pest control guy, and he woke us up. People also didn't listen to the quiet time rule at 10 pm, we did hear a lot if racket when trying to sleep. That's the only problems we had.
Kelly D.on 08/03/2014
Was a very nice getaway from nashville. Everyone is friendly...the unit was fine...may need some paint & updating needed for bathroom. Great location! We will be back.

Good experience. Would have liked more suggestions from office about dining suggestions and entertainment. Nice location. Clean. Felt safe.
First off let me apologize for the title, alas it is blunt but true! The pictures do not show any of the neglect that the owner of the Condo and NOT the very efficient and friendly rental Agency have allowed to happen to this potentially incredible location. Let me describe it in a few brief comments. Extreme rust on ceiling of a poorly maintained bathroom! It is not the size of the bathroom just the POORLY updated ceiling, sink, tub and topping the list is the needle-like spray from a very old shower nozzle that will cauld you in a heartbeat!!!
The kitchen is out of the 60's with all Mis-Matched and damaged cook wear, silver and dinner wear that not even the good will places would accept. A bed that is extremely lumpy with linens that should have been used for rags! The closed in porch is just that...closed for uselessness! Could have been a great room to spend a lot of time except it only had four cheaply made plastic chairs at a makeshift table...oh least I forget the noise easily heard in the ceiling from ALL the other floors water pipes!!! Be prepared to be shocked...having said all of this there were two huge pluses, first is the view, one can almost spit on the ocean from the deck and don't forget it is close enough to jump into the pool, but resist that urge...why would an owner be so money hungry to let a potentially beautiful property run down to the point that Guests are asking for their money back. Last but far from least is the rental company...they are great and did all the right things on their end. You can lead a deadbeat owner to water but you can't make him "do the right thing"...Would we stay again...yes, but only under condition of a completely renovated interior!!!!!! Jeff and Katie Peevy ( if you are brave enough to say it be brave enough to sign it!!!!)
Loved the location!! It was very outdated, mold on the shower curtain, floors were sticky, the cabinet was broken in the kitchen and my son (1 year old) found the board with nails sticking out of it. The shower had sooo much water pressure, it felt like knives stabing me. Overall, it was a great stay, great location, and decent for our stay.
the size was great for just 2. Perfect location. Shower head hurt like needles just to strong. needed paint job & you could hear the neighbors water draining in our room
Unit was ok. Furniture needs updating. Location of right above pool area was not enticing.
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.
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.
we had a great time and the water was beatiful, we took in the festival and the beach and had a relaxing time
We were overall pleased with the location and condition of the room. The cabinet doors in the kitchen were hard to open and we only had one trash bag in the kitchen provided, which was not adequate for our 3 night stay. We may have been provided another if we had called and asked.
We had a wonderful stay at The Gulf Tower.
The Condo was very spacious and clean. It supplied us with everything needed for a fun and comfortable vacation.
The beach is at your feet.
I highly recommend Bender Reality and a stay at The Gulf Tower
