We had a wonderful experience! Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. One of the bathrooms is not attached to the bedroom, which actually ended up working better for us. The only thing we wished we could have changed was a real balcony instead of an inclosed one, and that we could have kept both cars on the property and not paid extra to park it somewhere else.

Rental was very nice and clean.

The little security buttons to get through the gates of the pool and beach were annoying at first, but we got use to it. Probably best in the long run. As before the place was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The view of the Gulf each morning makes this place a gem. Try it, you'll like it. As over the years, Bender was great to work with.

We enjoy staying in 8-C. It's nicely decorated, the kitchen is complete with new appliances and the washer/drier are tucked away. Yup, we'll be coming back here again. Thanks Bender Realty.

If you're looking for bad, you won't find much here. This unit is used by the owners quite often, so it's nicer than your run-of-the-mill rental. Clean, well supplied, great view, great location. The new exterior patio doors are tinted and insulated, very nice. The building is getting secured WIFI, per the installer. Get up in the morning and look over the beach and water, it's great!! And again, Bender was great to work with.

Our condo was beautiful, with an amazing view. Our condo had everything we needed for our stay, I would defiantly rent from Bender again.

Very nice condo, pictures look just like the inside of condo.
Very spacious & comfortable. It had everything we needed for
a great stay. Pool was clean & the walk to the beach
was close. The beach was very clean. Will definitely use Bender
again & will try & rent this condo again. Ready to be back on the beach..

This unit is cozy, very comfortable and decorated in a beach theme. Bender Realty was wonderful to work with and you couldn’t ask for a better location and condo layout. We particularly enjoyed the master bedroom off the balcony, as we were able fall asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to beautiful sunrises. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could ask for. Although the condo is a little dated we found it to be very comfortable and inviting. The ceramic (wood pattern) floors are beautiful, however very hard on the feet. After a week, both my husband and I had sore feet. It would be nice to have some area rugs both in the living room and bedroom. The pool is clean and nice to have so close to the elevators. The beach is beautiful with rentable chairs/umbrellas. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed staying in this condo and will be back again! PROS: Beautiful location, great beach and comfortable condo. CONS: The ceramic tile floors are very hard on the feet. Although the floor was well swept when we arrived, it was still very dirty. Five minutes walking without our shoes, our white socks were black. Other than the floor, everything else was clean. Unfortunately this unit does not have Internet. You have to go to the clubroom to get it.

This was a family get together and we had a great time! The condo's are right on the beach. There is a wood walkway that goes from the pool right to the beach. The condo had a "sea side" feel from the colors of the walls to the decorations.

Overall, we were very satisfied with the condo we stayed in at Gulf Towers and the excellent care that we received from the staff at Bender's. The condo was still in the process of being remodeled (which we knew) and the owners were doing a good job. The only complaint was the cleaning prior to our arrival. The floors in the high traffic areas were swept but the balance were dirty/sandy and when we opened the front slider door, the dust bunnies came out of hiding from under the bed and furniture. I think Bender management needs to do more quality control on their cleaning contractors.

We used this trip as a family get together. In all we had 32 staying at The Gulf TOWER. The only problems we had was the a/c in condo one of my sisters had and the a/c in the rec room was frozen. Still we had a wonderful time.

UNIT WAS GETTING A LITTLE DATED

NICE LOCATION RIGHT ON THE BEACH WITH A BEAUTIFUL VIEW. ROOM WAS NICE BUT THE BEDS WERE VERY HARD AND UNCOMFORTABLE. ALSO DIDN'T LIKE THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE A BALCONY SEPARATE FROM ROOM AND THEY DON'T ALLOW ANYONE TO SIT BY THE POOL AFTER 10PM. THE GRILLS ARE LOCATED IN THE CORNER OF THE PARKING LOT, NOT IDEAL FOR GRILLING. I HAD A GREAT TIME WITH MY FAMILY, GULF SHORES IS A GREAT AREA FOR A FAMILY VACATION.
We had a great time.
Was very nice, had one issue with the sofa sleeper mattress being extremely uncomfortable but we were given a large air mattress which was much better. I would get a larger unit if all guests are adults, but that was my fault, just a recommendation for anyone traveling with all adults
Home was nice,location good.2nd car parking was very inconvenient.we felt kinda on lock down,not being able to walk straight to our car.
Basic condo- would've liked a few more amenities (trash bags, coffee filters, scrub brush for plates,tupperware) but otherwise good for beach stay.
Our stay in 8C was very enjoyable. The decor was very pretty and I was delighted with it. There are a few things that I felt needed attention though. The sliding glass doors on the balcony 'really' need some vertical blinds. The glare from the sun coming straight in to the living room was very bad and we had to sit with our backs to the porch to be able to see the tv screen. Also, there is no privacy at all in the master bedroom b/c of the lack of any kind of door. The people in the living room had to go to the other bedroom if they wanted to watch tv. Because of those two relatively large issues I will not be staying at this unit in the future. I hope that these two important issues can be rectified b/c the unit is very nice with upgraded appliances in the kitchen as well. The only thing the kitchen was lacking in was a decent teflon coated skillet. There is a little one but it's very scratched up. A little clock in the bedroom would be a plus as well. Thank you for a beautiful stay. I've been staying at Gulf Tower for over 30 years and love it.
We rented the beach condo, the condo was really nice. Well maintained, clean and comfortable. We have stayed at this building for several years and have never been disappointed.
Overall satisfied with our stay. It was in a great location. The unit had lovely decor but could have been cleaner. The refrigerator/ freezer smelled strongly of fish, keeping us from storing our food in it. The king mattress was broken down on one side making it slightly uncomfortable. The staff was very welcoming and helpful.
Other than the weather very nice,enjoyable and relaxing.
Unit 8C in Gulf Tower was recently updated with solid surface counter tops, painting throughout, much new furniture and, while were there, new patio doors. We had a super stay.
Enclosed balcony great. Hall toilet has problems. (we avoided it) Owner should invest in small repairs & updating. My priorities of clean linens (enough of them), convenient kitchen, and no bugs get 5 stars. The common areas well kept. Pool pristine. Dirty old grills outside. We hoped this would be a place to stay for a month or more this winter, but no. Shopworn is a good word to describe the condo. No internet wasn't a problem for a few days, but the inconvenience of using common room would be longer term. I felt safe & can say for sure the smoke alarm works (from cooking) & there are sprinklers. If you let Ginny at Bender know what you are looking for, she will find it. Will always call them.
Rental location was awesome. Made for Great week stay on the beach.
The beach was clean and the grounds were picked up. The building is older and the pool was small but clean. I personally appreciated the reasonable cost compared to others but got less than I expected for the cost.
IT WAS A NICE VISIT VERY RELAXING. HOWEVER THE ELEVATORS WERE SCARY.
