Had a wonderful time ! Weather was perfect, food was excellent.
Phyllis S.on 08/12/2017
Great time on beach. Inconvenient to have only 1 fob to go to beach. 5C needs upgrades
3 years have been great.
Milton M.on 05/27/2017
I would not recommend this unit because the owner only furnished one pool fob so that my wife and I had to go to the pool/beach at the same time. The guard pasted a warning sticker on my windshield because I didn't show the parking pass properly (my fault). I couldn't get it off until an owner went to his unit and returned with a razor scraper and Googone. He helped another quest with the same problem. Warning under my wiper would have been sufficient. Did not care for the MBR guests having to use the hall bathroom. Not staying in Gulf Tower again.

The condo was fantastic. It had an unbelievably well equipted kitchen, beautifully decorated and very comfortable living room and bedrooms. We had a great stay.
Don M.on 07/22/2016
Enjoyed the "beach experience" even though I am not
a beach person. Hae a great time with family, especially
our granddaughter. Would reccomend this facility to anyone interested in enjoying the beach.
Gregory J.on 06/15/2016
The good; The appliances worked and the room was clean. Property remains in good shape for its age. Pool is clean but could use a coat of paint. Location is close to my favorite dining choices and beach is better than more eastern properties. Probably a good value. Will stay again thru Bender.
The bad; mattresses weren't very comfortable, no WiFi in room (5C) or on beach which is normally not a problem unless you have work requirements.

Wonderful !!! Beautiful weather and delicious food.
Alan H.on 07/05/2015
From the time I called Bender Realty to ask about vacation rentals to check out, I was very satified. The property at Gulf Towers was very well represented by the website. Everything was exactly the it looked on the web. I would recommend this property and plan to stay there again.
Tina B.on 06/28/2015
We had a great time in Gulf Shores, and our experience at Bender was awesome. But the property we stayed out could have been a lot better for the price we paid. One, when we arrived, it smelt like a fishing pier of dead seafood. Left in the sink was last nights chopped up seafood dinner, was not cleaned out. Two, for the price of the week we should get cable in the front one and not just in the bedroom. We only had like 10 channels in the front room. Three, no wifi and I know it says this before you arrive, but this is the wifi era and you have to have it. Four, the washer and dryer has so much sand in them you can not clean anything. Actually made some clothes worse. Five, pool on property was closed for whole day and an half while we were there due to feces being found in it. Pools back home fix that problem in 20 minutes. We will go through Bender again, but we will not stay at this apt again.

The whole experience was beautiful, the staff at bender reality was awesome, the room was beautiful and so was the view, the only problem was no internet service had to go to first floor.
Bradley L.on 06/07/2015
We loved the place. Loved the theme. We felt very comfortable the whole time we rarely wanted to leave.
Paula B.on 05/28/2015
We were very pleased with our stay at Gulf Tower. The staff at Bender were so helpful during our planning process! Kind and courteous, happy to answer any question from beginning to end. I will definitely be coming back to Gulf Tower. It was quiet, clean, and well maintained. The owners association seem very active in the upkeep of the property, and take pride in the family atmosphere.

We have stayed at 5C before. Like the bedrooms ( 1 king & 2 queens). Furniture is very comfy. Love that the pool was heated this year. All necessities in the kitchen here. Beautiful view!!

Our experience at Gulf Towers, 5C Gulf Shores Al, January thru March 2015. We rented the condo thru Bender Realty.
Everything that Bender promised online was as described. What was not advertised was how well furnished the condo was. There was one of (at least) of everything. The kitchen was very well equipped, at least one of everything that one could want or need. The appliances were modern and functioned perfectly.
Both bedrooms were modern and comfortable. The guest room (king size) could use a new mattress. There was a TV in every room. Living room had a large flat screen TV. The guest bedroom (king size bed) had a cd, video player attached to TV. One thing that was not in the condo was Wi-Fi, Owners might want to install. It was a hassle getting it installed (and working) only for 3 months. Now days everyone has to have Wi-Fi.
The living room furniture was great, recliner for me, reclining section on sofa for my wife. The linen that were furnished and were top notch.
All of the furniture was in very fine condition. The balcony with the sliding doors was really great. The view and location of Gulf Tower on the beach is just like a picture.
We had 3 sets of visitors during our stay, everyone was impressed with the location and how nice everything was.
All you need to come to the Gulf Tower (Bender Condo Rental) is your bathing suit.
The personnel at Bender were really great, very professional, explained everything about Gulf Tower and the local Gulf Shores attractions. & coupon books.
Everything was so nice that we have reserved the same condo (thru Bender) January thru March 2016.
Elizabeth B.on 10/03/2014
Overall we had a great experience. The condo was exactly as it was presented in the photos. Just a couple of things maintenance wise they need to fix. The ceiling fan and the bathroom fan in the master didn't work. I didn't realize that they didn't have WiFi. That will definitely keep me from renting there again. Had a college student that needed to do homework. Overall it was a great experience. The weather was perfect, the beach was beautiful and the condo was great!
Jonathon Y.on 08/28/2014
Enjoyed staying at this property. They allowed us to check in at 12 which was hours early from check in. Had problems with the key and had to wait 20mins for a maintaince person to get there but they were curiosity. The only issues I had with this property was it was NOT the one we seen or inquired about. It had glass tables which is very nerve racking with two little ones whom are starting to walk. Other then the Ceiling fan stopped
working on the first night and the glass tables we were very satisfied. But we do not plan to stay in the same unit again unless there are different tables. Will definitely recommend this company and plan to use them again. Thank you for making our stay as good as it was.

We love Gulf Shores and enjoyed this condo very much.
Linda B.on 06/21/2014
We had two units and both were great. We were worried about the balcony set up but it was nice with the windows.
We had a great time in Gulf Shores at Gulf Towers until due to having a sick child when returning to the Towers on Thursday night.We failed to display the parking permit in the window.The next morning we found our car had been vandalized by the so called property manager. a simple flier placed under the windshield wiper would have been enough. Sticker had to removed by scraping and using Goo Gone since it was applied over the view of the driver side windshield and could NOT be peeled off.He suddenly appeared and offered NO ID or name, just his status(when asked).When we tried to explain what happened his only response was"I can call the police".This man needs to have his superior attitude removed or reduced.Our car had been one of the 12 other automobiles parked in this parking lot since Saturday p.m. If he had been at the top of his game he would have recognized on sight.I had been warned by at least 4 people of his antics before, so this was not his first. This was the one and only problem we had this entire week. We simply love the unit and would like to have 2 security fob's (rather than 1) in the future.Having only 1 fob makes it difficult to navigate with 3 adults.Hope to see you all soon.
This was the perfect place for my family and I to stay on our recent trip to Gulf Shores. The property is in an amazing location, right on the beach and close to food, shopping and fun. The swing on the enclosed porch became my family's favorite place to hang out - it had a great view of the ocean and we loved that you could open the doors to let the wind and sea air in. Our only complaint is that the carpets are very dirty and need a good cleaning. We all left our shoes on throughout the entire stay because of the carpets. Otherwise, the property is amazing!
We really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Tower 5C. This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this particular condo. The condo was very clean, furniture & beds were great. The best part for me was the balcony swing. I have never stayed at a condo that had a swing. It is so nice to be on the balcony swinging & listening to the waves & enjoying the beautiful scenery. Many thanks to the owners for providing such a wonderful place to stay. Also, the staff at Bender Realty are so nice, friendly & helpful in everything we needed. We will definitely be back again next year.
We love the location and the condo. However, the condo needs some attention. This was the second time we used this unit and overall the unit is well equipped and clean. Yes, we will return and hope to use this condo again.
Had trouble with a leak in bathroom and air conditioner not cooling, but all was fixed the next day (2nd day). Clean unit, would prefer a little updating-tile throughout, better pans for cooking (pans very used and scratched everything stuck), and more towels and washcloths. Great location! Also seal on refrigerator needs to be replaced.
Wonderful, Bender staff was awsome
My family has been vacationing in Gulf Shores for the past 35 years. We have booked with many realtors and stayed at many different condos. We have always been made to feel welcome at every condo that we have stayed in. I am sorry to say that this was definitely not the case at Gulf Towers. We booked two condos, 5C and 1B, due to the fact that our three children are grown. We also brought our 3 grandchildren all under the age of 11. I knew that it was odd that the realtor warned us not to even unpack our extra car (we had 3 cars and only 2 parking passes) inside the lot. She suggested that we move everything into the other cars rather than risk being towed. This was unacceptable to me and explained that I would risk it. Fortunately, we unpacked in 15 minutes while I stood guard over the car. It was later that evening after the evening security guard came on duty that it all became clear - we were the renters temporarily invading the property and privacy of the condo owners. We always had the feeling that she was watching us disapprovingly. She rudely questioned my daughter about her plastic cup being glass. We witnessed her being rude to other guests as well. I respect the need for security and have never seen a guard as rude as she was. Our grandchildren were very well behaved and we are always careful to obey the rules of the condo. She was clearly friendly with the condo owners who had parties at the pool every night. We spent too much money on these condos to be treated like intruders! We will never book another condo at Gulf Tower again!
we stay almost ever year, the beds are comfortable the rooms are clean and nice. And the view is outstanding.
We went to the beach for a relaxing getaway. We had a great stay. This condo was wonderful! The weather was perfect! The glassed in balcony was neat, we have never stayed at a condo with that setup. I especially loved the swing!! It was so relaxing to just sit in the swing and look at the beautiful beach. Condo had everything we needed. We were there for the Shrimp Festival. What a great time to be there and enjoy all that delicious seafood : )We had a late check-in and the people at Bender Reality made our check-in easy and pleasant. Those are some of the nicest people that work there. All of the ones I spoke with were VERY nice and helpful, especially Betty : ) I was disappointed that the condo didn't have WIFI. That should be something the owners can offer maybe in the future for other renters. Other than that, everything was great! Had a very relaxing stay and look forward to going back next year!
mattresses need to be replaced. severel maint. issues. cable t.v. a total mess loved the balcony
we enjoyed our time away from normal everyday stresses. Loved the Wharf and the light show at night. Day trip to Fairhope was nice also.
Had a great time,this is the 5th time in 10 years staying in Gulf Towers 5C.
