Had another great time in 417. Bender is always great to work with, renting easy, check-in fast and ladies even remembered me from past renting from Bender.Love the new chairs on balcony, wished there was 2 more, for all in the group would have had one. Condo nicely furnished, about time to update living area furniture and stove. Had battery in smoke alarm die, Bender had someone out quickly and very polite gentleman.Main door to balcony needs new glides, hard to open. Hope to come back next year

We love Gulf Village 417. Great for a family vacation! We have stayed in this unit five times and there are many reasons we book it. It is perfect for our family of 6 adults & 2 children. Very spacious, all the bedrooms had new comfortable mattresses this year, kitchen was spotless and fully stocked for any cooking needs. Bathrooms are roomy & you never have to worry about heated water for baths. We love the wrap-around balcony with comfortable seating, and the view is the best in Gulf Shores! It's very close to the water... Just a few steps and you are at your paradise spot on the beach. Rental chairs & umbrellas available by the day or the week. Big swimming pool with plenty of seating available. Forget something...eating out..need ice..Anything you need or would want is just 5 minutes from the parking lot. We've booked this unit again this summer for a "sisters" trip. Can't wait! Bender is the best! Everyone is so nice. I tell all my friends book with Bender Reality.

We had a great time! Good location with an awesome view.
Washer was difficult to figure out. Everything else was great.
Freda O.on 11/12/2016
The condo is a great one however we did have some unexpected guests-Bed Bugs. The queen bed guest room must have been overflowing. We had one lady that stayed in that room from check in Saturday till Wednesday morning. She had a few bites but now she is covered with bites on her neck, chin, both arms and hands and her mid section. She had to go to Stat care last night and was put on antibiotics and steroids. Other than that, and the fact that the floor was not as clean as it should have been, Condo was great.

Our week beach vacation was wonderful. Bender Realty was great. Location was great, right on the beach , centrally located, within bike riding distance of everything.
Teresa G.on 07/23/2016
We enjoyed our Gulf Shores vacation at Gulf Village! It does need a few minor issues addressed. The main one is the sliding glass door facing the ocean. I don't know if it's broken, but it's very hard to open. My daughter couldn't even open it and chose to use other ways out on the balcony. The internet is very spotty and the directions from Bender needs to advise the name of the wireless network. I kept looking for Gulf Village 417 per the sheet we were given. The sofa also needs to be replaced. There is no way anyone could sleep on it. It's a beautiful condo and we love the location. The new keyless entry is so handy! The people at Bender are wonderful!

Love coming to Gulf Shores every summer with the kids and grandkids. We always stay at Gulf Village in a three bedroom.
Larry J.on 07/02/2016
Condo is very roomy, well stocked and in a great location. Building is older complex, but well taken care of. Pool is nice, beach front view is awesome. Watched 4th of July fireworks unobstructed from balcony. Condo is not fancy, which is nice to me, made me fill at home. Only thing I would change is patio furniture, hard to get out of when older and bad knee(sits low). Bender Realty is always great to work with, always friendly and even remembered me from other rentals
Marta M.on 06/11/2016
Was refreshing and relaxing. Bender Realty really knows how to make a family vacation the most relaxing possible. They have everything you would need to get started. Love it!
Al B.on 05/06/2016
It was a good experience. The only negative was that we got there around 3:45 pm and the unit was not ready. Had to wait about 20 minutes.
Patricia G.on 08/15/2015
The condo was very spacious and clean. Everything you needed was there. Great views.
Johnnie F.on 08/08/2015
Gulf Village 417 was wonderful, perfect location, all Bender personnel was professional and courteous, will definatly rent from them again and will rent this condo again.
Rebecca B.on 07/25/2015
Wonderful!! Beautiful view! Would recommend this to anyone looking for a condo in Gulf Shores. Loved it!!
Angela S.on 07/11/2015
This condo was awsome in every way. Was very roomy. I love how every room has a sliding glass door and a balony that goes all the way around it. Will definitly be my choice anytime i am coming to gulf shores for vacation.
Chesley D.on 05/30/2015
We have stayed at Gulf Village for 4 Summer vacations and have loved it each time. It has become "Granny's Beach House" to my young grandson. We love the unit we stayed in this Summer ( 2nd time to stay there). Very nice, always clean and very roomy. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook any meal. Just a few steps from the beach. Loved sipping coffee on the balcony every morning and watching dolphins play in the gulf. Our vacation was absolutely wonderful! Bender's rental agents are the best! Looking forward to next year!
Jill R.on 03/28/2015
We love this place. Best view on the beach. We've stayed here 3 times over the past 10 years and would go again. Only things we didn't like were having the tub in the back not draining well and a non heated pool.
Jamie W.on 03/21/2015
My vacation was amazing! We loved the condo. The layout was nice, the furniture was stylish, and the kitchen was well equipped. I have just two complaints. The bathrooms were not cleaned well at all when we arrived. The master bath had dirt and dust accumulated in the corners on the floor, there was a drip in the wall that looked like blood, and the shower/tub was not well cleaned. For the amount I payed for the cleaning fee I expected them to be very clean and well sanitized.The beds in the second and third bedroom were as hard as rocks. I was told that the door to the laundry closet was broken at check-in. I expected that it would be fixed during our stay, but it wasn't. It was a slight inconvenience.
Sandra W.on 10/25/2014
The condo was in a great location with a beautiful view of the beach from the many large windows. The unit was well equipped but was in need of a good cleaning. The building itself, being older, needed some freshing up too.
Wendlynn W.on 09/20/2014
Everything was great
Dawn B.on 09/12/2014
We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The staff at Bender Realty were very friendly and helpful from the time of booking until the end of our stay. The condo was very nice and met all of our needs. Everything was well maintained and clean. Our only complaint was that the curtains in the master bedroom did not fully cover the sliding glass door which made it very bright throughout the day making sleeping in or taking naps difficult. Other than that, we look forward to staying in the same condo next year!
Gayle G.on 08/28/2014
I was very satisfied with the lay out of the was very spacious and enough room for the family. However,it could have been cleaner.
Mary H.on 08/21/2014
It was the best vacation we've ever taken! The condo was perfect for us! The wrap around balcony was a big plus, and the furnishings in the condo were all new! We have always used Bender Realty and will continue to do so, because they are so pleasant and helpful.
Janie H.on 07/26/2014
Gulf Village was a little out dated, furniture cushions were very dirty, so dirty I would 't sit on them. The condo looked like it took maybe 30 minutes to clean it up for the next guest. Windows were all smudged up, trash in trash can, master bedroom bedspread was stained, master bath had floor trim that was laying on the floor instead of nailed to the wall, trash cans were filthy, trash on floor in bedroom with the twin beds. View was great. Spent most of my time on the beach
Carliss P.on 07/19/2014
We love Gulf Village Condos and have stayed there for almost 20 years. We love the three bedrooms facing the beach. This year we were disappointed in the fact that the furniture was really getting worn out and bedding was not good. Linens were old and did not have that "clean" feeling. We were told that the new owner will probably make some updates in the near future. We have booked the same unit for next year and cannot wait to see the improvements. Cleaning crew did not do a very good job. There was lots of sand and dust under the beds, etc. Someone should inspect their work. Furniture in living and dining rooms were dirty.
The internet service was terrible. The stove needs to be up graded we had to buy an oven thermometer to know what the temp was. The kitchen was very well equipped with cookware, dishes,and utensils. One of the skillets had 2 holes on the bottom some oil leaked onto the burner and caused a flash fire, I think it burned out the burner. I left it on the counter with a note, I also left a message on your voice mail.
We like the lay out of this unit. Will consider it for next year. The oven on light is not working properly, we hade to buy a oven thermometer. The freezer door does not seal and ice builds up. I think these would cost the owner a lot of electricity. Overall we have enjoyed it
Pictures and description exactly what we found in person. We had a great amount of space and loved the wrap-around balcony with ocean and pool views. Very handy to keep an eye on teens! We had a very easy and quick check-in even though we arrived right at closing time for Bender. Very friendly staff both on the phone and in person! Cleaning could've been somewhat better. We cleaned both tub drains out because they were very slow to drain and there was a decent amount of sand left on floors in some areas. I'm sure cleaning is done very quickly during the busy season. One minor issue was poor internet connection. Not a big deal since we were there to be outside on the beach, but if anyone needed to do work while away it would've been frustrating. Highly recommend this unit and Bender! Check out Flippers in Orange Beach for dinner and dolphin cruise, and Bahama Bob's in Gulf Shores!
This was our second time at Gulf Village; previously we stayed in 317. The location is perfect! The elevator worked well. The wi-fi was more trouble than it was worth; slow, dropped frequently. Overall, the condo was clean. There were some stains on the dining room wall that seemed to be splatter from a drink, but that was the only issue with cleanliness. Everything worked well (except wi-fi), and the kitchen was well-equipped. The condo was not ready for us at the check-in time (3:00pm). The Bender staff allowed the kids to change into swimsuits in the office restroom, and then we headed to the property and swam for about an hour until the room was ready. While the kids were happy swimming, we had to leave the car running to keep the groceries cool, as we had stopped at the grocery store on the way into town. The info from Bender had warned that check-in could be delayed during busy times, but it was still inconvenient. After a long drive with three kids, "your room isn't ready yet" is not what anyone wants to hear!
But, overall we had a wonderful week and enjoyed the condo very much!
The view is fantastic. The condo needs a good cleaning floors around baseboards dirty & under furniture. Bathroom vanities need replaced. New refrigerator is needed, freezer compartment is awful. Internet connection is terrible. I called Harbor Communications over 5 times, problem was never resolved. You'd have internet then you'd lose connection. If someone rents condo for any length of time & they rely on the internet, with service. Needs to be fixed. they won't be very happy. The closet door track in 2nd bedroom needs replaced, rusted can't close closet doors
Bender Realty is awesome!
Always seamless and excellent customer service.
Gulf Village is my favorite condo in Gulf Shores. I have stayed there multiple times and love it more each visit. Keep up the good work guys!
Condo was well equipped and comfortable for three adults & three kids. Had a nice relaxing time. Would stay again.
We enjoyed the rooms and beautiful view! It needs a mat as you walk back in the room from the balcony, it is very slick if your feet are wet. We hope to come back soon to enjoy this view again.
Very relaxing! We love the view! We all enjoyed having so many TV's. Everyone could have their own privacy. Thanks for letting us stay at your home! The only thing that needed attention was better cleaning. All in all we loved it. Just wished it was mine.
Right on the beach, convenient Gulf Shores location, roomy, well stocked kitchen. Wonderful condo, priced right. The only thing we needed, was more shower towels...none to spare. Will recommend to friends.
Room 417 was a great condo! Great views!
Beautiful condo, beach weather. Staff at Bender
were great to work with.
THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW THAT WE RENTED THIS HAS A GREAT VIEW FROM ALL ROOMS WITH A LARGE WRAP AROUND 'S RIGHT ON THE BEACH.
