My wife and I have celebrated our birthdays in gulf shoree for years and we love staying at Sandpiper, which is quite and conducive for relaxing activities such as sitting on their pristine beaches, and dozing off to the sounds of the surf and birds. The agents working in Bender's realty office are very helpful and I would recommend Bender for all of your vacation needs. God bless????

Stayed at Sandpiper 8c for 3 day getaway from our trip to New O; Condo was great size for 2 couples, great patio overlooking the beach; nice size complex, very convenient.
Deborah T.on 10/22/2016
We had a very good time. The complex is clean, neat, landscaping is very pretty. We loved 8C. The view was remarkable. The layout was good. A few more baking pans would have been nice, but other than that, we all had a wonderful time.

We were pleasantly surprised with our rental. It felt like a little home instead of a rental condo. Favorite spot was the balcony and since we were only 3 floors up it felt like we were sitting right in the beach. Great view and great rental overall

Overall we love staying at Sandpiper. This is our 4th year in the same unit. Bender is great and always friendly. However this year the security guards were un friendly and we felt like they ruined our normally fun and easy going time. The very first day the guard watched every move we made which made me feel very uneasy. He would just stare and treated us like children. It really dampened our overall experience

Sandpiper is an awesome property! We will be back. Bender Realty took very good care of us! Thank you!

We have stayed at the Sandpiper many times now and I don't like to stay anywhere else!

Been staying here for 20 years always satisfied with the condo location and condition. Love the fact that I don't have to spend time in an elevator riding up to my room in a high rise condo. Take the steps only 3 floors saves time waiting on and riding in an elevator.
Michael D.on 07/11/2015
Love the condo we stay in; we have rented this place for 3 years in a row and are coming back again next year.

We came to enjoy the Gulf Shore and to relax after a busy year, and it didn't disappoint us, we met many wonderful people and enjoyed their company. Will be back next year.....

Nice place to stay. Easy beach access and good pool facility. We enjoyed our stay.
Laura G.on 09/13/2014
We had a great time. The outside of the property was clean and well maintained. The condo was okay, but could have used a good cleaning. Floors were dirty, woodwork and doors had dirty hand prints every where, bed linens were stained, and we had to buy our own blanket for our bed. The dryer in the unit did not dry clothes. But despite the cleanliness issues, we were there to enjoy the beach and pool and that's just what we did.

We love staying at the Sandpiper! We have been coming to Gulf Shores for many years now and really enjoy the atmosphere at the Sandpiper.

The room and condo were great. Updated rooms since the photos. The management was great and attentive when needed. This is our 5th visit to this complex and every time we remember why we love it so much!! ONLY complaint is the dryer in the unit does not work well. It takes hours to dry a small load.
Benders picture of unit 8c is the wrong one
The view was great. The condo was beautiful and clean and up-to-date in appliances and ammenities. Loved it!!
The reason we felt it was a little too expensive is 3 of the 4 mattresses are completely worn out and need replacing. ALL the pillows need replacing, flat and dirty under the pillow case. I love that is it an ocean side room but, a little to expensive for condition of condo furniture.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Sandpiper(8C). The only thing we didn't like was the hard bed in the master.
We love staying at the Sandpiper. Everyone is so friendly and we love that it's not a big complex. We plan to return every year and make it a family tradition.
We had a wonderful time at the Sandpiper. We have young children and we loved being right on the beach with a great pool. Lots of great memories were made!
We have stayed at the Sandpiper for over 20 years for Spring Break. We are never disappointed when we call or walk in the office on that first day to see the smiling faces of the staff. Bill Bender often greets us as he remembers us from previous years. Sandpiper has grown up with us and even as all the high rise condos and fancy hotels crowd the skyline we have never considered staying in one of them before staying at the Sandpiper with Bender Realty. Sandpiper Spring Break Family is our family...we have watch families such as our own go from young adults to parents, to kids going off to college and then those kids coming back with their own children years I said we have grown older with Sandpiper. Fortunately, Sandpiper has gotten new updates and face lifts to keep it fresh and competitive with other accommodations in the area but still has a homelike feeling. When an issue is brought to the attention of the staff it is resolved as soon as possible at the guests convenience. Would I recommend Sandpiper and 8C to others? Of course I would...but only to those people who appreciate and recognize the better things in life!
We really enjoyed being so close to the water and we were able to relax and rest. We were not satisfied with the cleanliness, but the staff was helpful.
Love staying at Sandpiper.
1. The condo was dirty. I found shell casings on the furniture. The refrig had sand on the bottom. All the ceiling fans had layers of dust. The sinks had mold around them. The kitchen sink wasn't wiped down. The mirrors in the bathroom had water spots all over them. I am not even sure if it was disinfected. I cleaned the condo myself after the cleaning crew left.
2. I do love the location and the way the condo is decorated.
3. We called regarding the light under the stairs that kept flashing. No-one ever showed up to inspect or replace; this was after the shortage in the pool. I didn't know if it was due to the shortage, but thought that someone would come by to ensure safety of the residents.
3.This has been our second year at this property and we have booked again. I am not sure if the condo wasn't cleaned properly because we are a guaranteed rental? But I would think because we do commit to Sandpiper, that the cleaning crew would want us to be happy and have it immaculate. If it continues to be dirty; I will recommend to our group ( we had 82 people staying at Sandpiper) that we look for another property.
4. To the condo owners: we do love your condo and found that the furniture and decorations were wonderful. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
5. As for the property recommendation, I would recommend the condo, but would not recommend the cleaning company that maintains the condo.
