We loved it! Very spacious property with beautiful views. The photos does not do this property justice. Can't wait till next year to rent again.

The condo we rented was in the perfect location on the beach and close to all other activities in the community. We loved our time at The Hangout and had a great meal at Lambert's. The condo was absolutely beautiful and will definitely request it again. My only complaint was that it was not thoroughly cleaned when we checked in (the rugs had not been vacuumed, the tables and countertops had not been wiped down).

The Westwind condo was shared by 4 "golfers" enjoying the Gulf Shores golfing and annual Shrimp Festival. Our condo could not have been more perfect for our stay. Clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, it was more than we had anticipated. The Bender Realty staff could not have been more accommodating. Friendly and always ready to assist in any way possible. They were a pleasure to work with.

We had a very good time.. Beautiful condo but the only issue was the plumbing...Low water pressure and unable to get water pressure for showers or to flush toilets.Other than that Great condo.. Like the fact that no keys or cards were needed just the code. LIked that feature.

Great views and very convenient to access the beach. This was our second time renting a condo in Gulf Shores and I would rent this one again.

We had a wonderful stay at Westwind this year. We have stayed in this same unit in the past, but it has been updated, and it looks great! The air conditioner quit working the night we arrived, but Bender Realty sent someone over immediately. Even though it took a day to be fixed, they offered us a place to stay until the air was fixed. Bender always takes care of us, and the ladies in the office are always so nice and helpful. We will definitely be returning next summer.

We had a very nice vacation stay at Westwind 901. The only downfall was the dryer didn't work, but Bender Realty brought us more towels and linens. The property was beautiful and comfortable. We would rent again.

Stayed for two months and it felt like home.
Large living area. When guest came down, we had plenty of space.
Condo is being updated and was not quite done when we were there.

We had a few minor maintenance issues that were handled promptly. Very impressed with the quickness and friendliness! Bender rental has always been a great company to deal with and will use them again!

As we spent time in Gulf Shores we started to hear horror stories from the locals about “The Summer People”. We met four other families from home who were staying at the same area of the beach. The kids were all playing together and the parents talked. It turned out that every other family had paid significantly more than we had AND their condos were in worse shape. That made 5 families, all staying at condos managed by 5 different companies, and not a single place was clean like you keep your home. One of the couples invests in vacation rentals and talked about the amount of damage that can occur to a condo in a vacation destination.
We came to the conclusion that our expectations had been too high for the Gulf Shores market. This is an incredible location, far enough away from the attractions to avoid the noise while close enough to walk to them. The location of this condo in the building is perfect. The amount of space was in the condo was great. And the balcony was PERFECT. For that specific market, this is a top of the line rental unit at a good price.
What you need to know about this market, is the janitorial services wield a lot of power in this area and they are not going to clean anything like you would; regardless of what condo you rent or from whom you rent it. So bring your own cleaning supplies (broom, mop, steam mop, etc.) and build a “Move-In Cleaning Party” into your vacation plans, then enjoy the best location on the beach from Ft. Morgan to Orange Beach.

If cleanliness is Important to you, then this is not the place to stay. I usally do not do these reviews but I feel inclined to do so this time around. I was stunned when reading the other reviews that no one else felt the same. So I'm not sure if it's just been in recent time or not. When we arrived we had three vehicles ( we felt since we were staying in a 4 bedroom condo we would at least get three passes) but we only were allowed 2 passes and the other vehicle had to be parked nightly at bender. Which we were disappointed but dismissed this minor issue. Although the entire week a tralior sat in a parking space unmoved. Anyways, upon entering the condo at first glance it seemed very open and a place that we could be very happy and comfortable with. As the day/evening went on we started to realize how unkept this place really was. The rooms were small (which we all can deal with) but some of the furniture was broken and useless. One of the bedrooms and bathroom that is shared was absolutely disgusting. The bedroom had mold in the window seal where my daughter and infant granddaughter slept. Also the bathroom they used was not usable. It had some serious mold and not a sanitary place for my daughter to give her child a bath. (The sink was also stopped up) it was if the condo had been severely neglected! Very dusty, and not just, it hasn't been dusted in a month. The kitchen items hadn't been cleaned either. I have pictures! We made the best of it and ended up just cleaning to our own liking. We love gulf shores and plan to come back but we will never stay in this condo or building ever again. There were a few more issues also but I feel like I'm getting my point across. So conclusion, if you like a clean condo this is definitely not the condo for you! Btw I am in no way a neat freak and just like to stay in a clean place where we've spent decent money! Good luck (I'd post pics if I could)

We had a great time with our daughters and sons in law. The weather even cooperated. Condo was great. Good beach access and pool was very clean. We were on the 9th floor so it was very quiet. Had a space for a our sandy beach stuff but also were able to leave our canopy and chairs on the beach without anyone bothering with it. Great location. Definitely recommend using Bender again. You were always easy to get a hold of and answered all questions. Payments and reminders were also easy and timely.
My family and I really enjoyed the condo and everything it offered. We will look at the possibility of returning to this unit next year.
This is my second time staying in this unit. The unit is updated and very comfortable. The owners must have recently remodeled it. The location is excellent and the beach is excellent. However, the people who clean the unit need to do a better job. On the surface the unit looked clean but under the sofa was filthy. I had to look under it for kids toys. Also when emptying the garbage when I removed both cans there was plenty of old garbage behind the second can which I removed because I think the owners probably pay a nice fee for the cleaning and should know this. But the biggest issue was the elevator broke at least four times in the week we were there and walking up nine flights of stairs with children and older people is not fun or relaxing. Although I love the unit the elevator issue concerns me about staying again because I am not getting any younger to walk up nine flights. I know it is not the owners fault but I hope building management rectifies this issue because there is only one elevator in the building. Also there was only one cart available for bring up groceries and luggage, last year there was two available. I don't think carts are that expensive for property management to supply but if the elevator is not working I guess you don't need them.
Great location, very nice place, hot water absolutely sucked, only about 2 people can take a hot shower then everyone else will have cold showers, other than that it was really nice and we had a great time.
Everything was great. The condo was very clean and things like the kitchen were well stocked with utensils and pans and the like. The extra icemaker was a very useful addition for the capacity of the unit.
We loved it. There were 4 couples and each had their own room. It was clean & very nice. We loved it & will be back again next year. The view from this condo was great. We loved sitting on the balcony listening to the waves. I have to say this is my "happy place"!!!
It was a beautiful condo with an awesome view. We enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend this condo. The people were very friendly and helpful also.
This was my 4th year in a row going to Gulf Shores and have stayed in different units trying to find one that was big enough, nice enough and within budget. I finally found it and will stay here from now on. The unit is 4 bedrooms with plenty of room and storage. It is well furnished (except for one broken bar stool). Previous reviewer said the washing machine did not work, well they now have a brand new LG washer and dryer (work beautiful and would buy them for my home). I recommend this unit for grandparents taking their children and grandkids on vacation, you will not be disappointed.
Everything was great. Plenty of room, very large living & dining area. Could not have asked for a better place or time.
I really enjoyed my stay, upon arrival it was a few minor things that needed attention and all I did was made one call and they were there. I would recommend this property to anyone that will be traveling to Gulf Shores. If I travel down again I would chose this location again.
Everything was perfect. Plenty of space for our big family. Wonderful view. We will be back for sure.
It was a great place to stay with a larger group or family...Plenty of bedrooms and space...Although u only get one parking spot w rental need to purchase 2nd for $13.30 and we had three cars so had to park a 3rd next door at ocean house for $ TV in master for bed time but other than that was great stay:-)
Pretty good vacation overall. Furnishings and appliances need a little work. Vacuum cleaner held together by duct tape and the microwave sounds like it could launch any second. TV was broken, but replaced after we arrived. Matching torn lampshades were an eyesore. Not as nice as the other 4 BR unit on the 9th floor, but certainly acceptable. The base price was fair, but after tacking on booking, cleaning, and tax, I didn't consider it a bargain for what we got. Bender was excellent in all our interactions.
