Great view! From the 9th floor, you can still hear the waves crashing, and you can see forever. (Don’t really need to be that high up)
Nice condo. Everything was clean and tidy. Lots of dishes and utensils. The porch is great! You can close it off to keep the heat out, or let the ocean breeze blow in.
The people at Bender were always friendly and helpful. Great service, when needed (when I mentioned the electric can opener didn’t work, they insisted on bringing a new one promptly!)
The only way to get to the beach is through the pool area. The only way to get in the pool area is with a fob. We were only allowed 2 fobs. We were on vacation and all wanted to do our own thing; go to the beach and play, go walk on the beach, go back to the condo, all on our own schedule. Couldn’t. Just an unnecessary nuisance.
King size bed (nice), queen size sheets – or some size that didn’t fit. The fitted sheet was at least 8” too short and kept coming undone; the top sheet barely covered the top when flat.
The wi-fi is unsecure. Not sure we were promised wi-fi at all, so maybe I shouldn’t expect it.?.
Plastic drain pipes from the bathroom in the unit above run right through the ceiling of our bathroom. Every time some one flushes or showers upstairs, you can hear it pretty well in the main bedroom.
The elevators are HOT; nearly panicked when one didn’t open (went to a different floor, and everything was good).
The last day there, I noticed water dripping from the ceiling onto the refrigerator and counter. Someone arrived soon to check it out, but had to send someone else later. Turned out the A/C two floors up had frozen up and iced over – then was melting. Glad we didn't have food on the counter there.
Other thoughts we had:
I guess we don’t rent week-long condos often enough to be used to this, but it seems odd to be allocated one ro

Our family had a fantastic time staying at Gulf Towers 9D. Everything was exactly as we expected it to be, and Bender Vacation Rentals provided great service and advice about the area - we will definitely be back!

However, the property did not measure up to the pictures. The carpet was badly soiled. Bender had it cleaned but still deep strain. Furniture was not in ok shape. Bender replaced light shades, bulbs etc. Same day service. The rebate during construction was nice. Good fellowship on Thursdays with other renters. My wife cleaned alot. Around vents, corners, etc. Note. Would we recommend this property to a friend, not 9D, However, other renters talked about how their was very clean, updated, etc. 9D needs some updating. We would recommend Gulf Towers, Bender Realty, not 9D

The pictures were better than the actual condition of the property. The existing carpet in the bedrooms is badly worn. The cabinets are worn. Some lampshades are dirty/broken.We recommend this building but not this unit.Unless some work is done we would not stay in this unit again. The management and costumer service was great. We would use Bender again.

Nice location in Gulf Shores, Bender was very polite and easy to deal with.
While we were informed ahead of time that there was only one spot permitted per unit, I found it pretty ridiculous that we had to make all these alternate driving/parking arrangements when there were extra spots in the lot ALL WEEKEND.
The unit was good overall, but the bathrooms were NOT CLEANED WELL prior to our arrival. It was very clear that the tubs had possibly never been scrubbed down and there was a dirty used wash cloth in one of them.
Overall the condition of the unit was fine otherwise.

Our first visit to Gulf Shores. Very beautiful. Beach was awesome. Condo was nice. A little outdated but nice and clean . Dishwasher didn't get dishes clean. needs updated to keep the very nicely stocked kitchen stuff clean. Balcony was great! Beds were comfortable. Would stay here again !
Larry N.on 06/08/2015
Great location. Loved the glass enclosed balcony.
Kitchen appliances could use some updating. The carpet in the bedrooms was pretty dirty, suggest replacing with tile and area rugs do to the nature of being on the beach.

Bender Rental does a good job. The people there are very nice and helpful to you. This unit is a really good place to stay. Pool was great. Access to the beach was great. The way the unit is put together is great. It had everything you could want, cabinets were so neat and orderly and really lovely. The dishes were so nice and pretty. The only complaint I had was that the large sofa and chair in the living room probably needed cleaning and the floor in that area seemed a little sticky and not totally clean. The balcony area was a wonderful extension of the unit. You had to be careful to remember that the floor there was sometimes open to the outside weather and therefore was not as clean as the inside floor.

9D WAS CLEAN & HAD A GREAT VIEW OF GULF.MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE SOFAS AND CHAIR- CUSHIONS ARE WORE OUT ! I WEIGH 155LBS AND EACH TIME I SAT ON ONE OF THESE THEY SANK WITH MY WEIGHT.

WOW! We had a terrific time in Gulf Shores. Your condo was nice & view's of the ocean were amazing. We were very satisfied with our stay thru Bender Realty and will definitely seek you for our next trip. Have a great day......

For the last 15 years we have made Gulf Tower our vacation destination. We tried another property one year and regretted it so back to GT we came. Although all of the units we have visited were wonderful, 9D has been our home away from home when we visit the beach. The unique balcony arrangement, the unit layout, the small, family type atmosphere of the property and the friendly efficiency of the staff at Bender Realty all combine to give us a fabulous beach stay and will keep us coming back to Gulf Tower every year. No more experimenting. Gulf Tower is the one for us.

We had a party of 5 in this condo. This unit was very accommodating for 5 people. We did bring one twin air mattress, due to sofa beds never being comfy. The view was amazing, we saw dolphins a few mornings from the balcony. The pool was heated, which made evening swimming very enjoyable. The wifi in the room was adequate for email and pandora. The unit was very clean upon arrival, everything worked. Overall, this was a great condo and we all had a great time here. Bender Realty is always a pleasure to work with too!

Great location...easy to find...clean....roomy comfortable furnishings n staff at Bender Realty helpful and courteous.

Our experience at Gulf Towers can be described as restful and restorative. The accommodations were A+. The weather cooperated and the Gulf was great to swim in. No jellyfish this time!
came for a 6 day getaway and enjoyed our stay very much
This was a great location and we had a wonderful time. But upon arrival the place had was not close to clean. Floor had not been mopped, food in the sink, and someone had smoked in there. There was a dirty wash cloth in the master bath and the guest bath floor was nasty. And don't plan on sleeping on the sleeper sofa if you weigh over 50 lbs. This is the second time Bender has disappointed us with the cleanliness. Doubt we use them again.
Lots of nice weather and good food.
From entering the condo unit we immediately relaxed. Cleanliness of the unit and the attractive setting of the furniture was a welcoming feeling. Opening the doors on the balcony to view the gulf brought a feeling of ease.
This was our 1st time to Gulf Shores. What a beautiful beach. Loved the location of Gulf Towers. We were able to watch from our balcony as dolphins swam in the ocean. Condo was very nice. The chair was very worn & uncomfortable but other than that, all the appliances worked & for the most part, the condo was very clean. Loved that the State Park & Pier were within a few miles of the Condo. The Bender Realty Staff was great!
The location was great. The rental itself could use some updating and cleaning. However, when there were people above us it was very noisy. Additionally when someone showered above us, dirty shower water leaked down from the ceiling on us in the shower. Ike's Beach Service was great while we were there. Ryan was the best attendant I've ever had.
We enjoyed the beach as it was not as crowed around the Gulf Tower as some of the bigger condos, but the unit was not furnished as nice as it should be for the weeks rent we paid. Glass top tables EVERYWHERE and mirrors on all of the walls in the common and breakfast room. The unit wasn't terribly clean when we checked in. The floors were so dirty (and I am not just complaining about a little sand) that I actually felt like I needed to clean them the first day we were there. My three year old literally had black feet from walking around barefooted before I cleaned them. I love Gulf Shores, but this unit and condo complex is not on my list of places to stay again.
