Great Location! close to everything but not crowded. Watched dolphins outside on balcony every day. Sea turtle nest located outside condo too! Kitchen was equipped with everything & not cheap mismatched utensils. Beds were comfortable. Condo was decorated very cute & beachy. We ate breakfast in & put something in crockpot for evening, then off to sightsee, shop, swim, look for shells & check out local restaurants & seafood markets.

We rented 316 and 317 at Gulf village. They were both immaculate, right on the beautiful Gulf Shores beach. Pool was nice, common area downstairs was perfect. We have a large family and these two condos together were perfect. The ladies at Bender Realty were very kind and helpful. Need an electrical outlet down in the common area and a front storm door on 316. That's the only two recommendations I have.

This condo was fantastic! It had every kitchen gadget we needed including Tupperware. It was very clean and decorated nicely. We couldn't have asked for a better location and it was literally steps from the beach. It also had a nice pool which we used when the jellyfish came floating in. It was close to restaurants and shopping but not too close to all the crowds. It was wonderful and we will definitely be back!

Overall, very nice condo that was clean and well appointed. It's right on the beach, the wrap around deck was fabulous and it was obvious the condo owners put a lot of thought into making the condo a nice place for visitors. My only complaint, and it is not a big one, was that some of the other renters didn't take their trash to the dumpster (instead, they left it outside their door) or the condo management staff didn't clear it. Our family would definitely come back, though. As other reviewers noted, the bedrooms are bigger than they appear in pictures... plenty of room for up to 8 people.

Once again we had a great vacation in Gulf Shores using Bender Realty. We got there a little early and although we had to wait for about an hour, we were allowed to check into our condo early. They now have a keyless entry system, which is convenient when with a larger group. The condo was great, had everything you would need for your vacation, including beach chairs and toys. Although the dishwasher wouldn't drain on the last night, the appliances were great. The rooms were much larger than they appear in the photos, but the twin beds were very uncomfortable. The view from each of the private balconies were wonderful and got to sit and watch dolphins from them. Would definitely book this unit again, if it wasn't for the twin bed issue.

Everything was smooth and we had a wonderful time.
great property loved the beach decor
The condo was not very clean. Had to sweep as soon as I arrived. Master bath had long dark hair in tub, sink had splatter marks and behind the sink looked like it had not been cleaned in months. The guest bath had hair in it also. Sink was dirty. Behind the door had lots of dust on the wall and floor. The whole condo needed to be dusted. Furniture was not comfortable. Location was great! Booked through Bender Reality for three years first time not happy with the cleanliness of a condo.
We had a great week at the beach. We really liked this condo but as with most things there is room for improvement. At first glance it looked clean and for the most part was. We had a crawling infant with us which exposed some cleaning needs. It was very dirty under the sofa and under other furniture. The screen door to the condo either needs to be fixed or just taken off. Other screen doors and closet doors also need some work but that seems to be the norm these days. This place is very well furnished and has great deck furniture as well. With a few improvements a nice place to stay would become a great place to stay. We would stay here again and would recommend Bender Realty. The staff there is great.
Love the private beach..view...would like to see the shelter rules enforced...people had larger ones than 10X10 s.
The property was great!! We loved the condo, it was perfect for the 6 of us. It was very nice. The staff a Bender was so nice and helpful. We arrived late at 10:30pm, very tired from out 18 hour drive but had no problems getting into our condo everything was great. We had shrimp from S & S Seafood Market it was Great!! We ate at Desoto's Seafood & Fish River Grill both were Excellent!! The elevator stop a couple of times, we call Bender and someone was right out both times. We would stay here again!!
We were very pleased with Gulf Village. It was very comfortable. The pool was nice and the beach was so pretty. Hope to come to Gulf Shores again next year. Bender always finds a place that we enjoy.
We enjoyed our stay @ Gulf Village 317. I would say for the most part the condo was fine except none of the sliding glass door locks worked & there was nothing to stick in the doorways to secure the doors when we were out or asleep which I was kind of uncomfortable with. The condo could have been a little cleaner but it was okay. The renters above us partied way too much & were loud & even urinated off their balcony. We didn't complain because we are pretty easy going. The recliner chair was broken but other than that all furniture seemed fine. The dishes, cookware & utensils were great & plenty of them. This sounds like a negative review but it's not. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would come back again. I do wish the parking situation was better. There are negatives & positives in every condo so in all we were happy & had a great vacation! Loved watching the Dolphins everyday from the balcony!!
We had a great week in this condo. We have stayed here for the past three or four years. The new owners have made some nice upgrades. Our biggest complaint would be the closet door in the master bedroom and the sliding screen doors on the deck doors. None of them work very well if at all. Other than that the place is great and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a three bedroom condo on the beach that is reasonable priced. We are booked again for next year. The condo was clean, however, it could use some dusting in some areas especially the ceiling fan blades.
Over all a very nice vacation. The beach wasn't crowded at all. No luck catching any fish, but had fun trying. The kids loved the pool and the easy walk to the beach was great for little ones. The unit is perfect for families.
Check in time was 3:00 which is when we arrived. Couldn't get in until 4:00 and was given some excuse about the property being sold and something about the owners. No matter the reason, we had reservations and drove 5 hours to be there at 3:00. The carpet was stained and the furniture uncomfortable. But we were steps from the beach and every room lead to the balcony.
The location was wonderful and we were running late on checkin, Bender Realty assisted with getting in that night. However, the cleanliness of the Condo was horrible. Our feet were black from the dirty floors. I fianlly put the front door rug on the sticky black spot on the carpet and it was bearable. I had to sweep what looked like toe nail clippings off the balcony. The bathroom rugs were dirty as well. We tried to used the drier but the lent filter feel off and was warped so we were not able to attach it. I was glad it was for a wet beach towel and not a load of laundry or I would have been very upset. this could be a wonderful condo, just get rid of the carpet and do some maintenance. I was also wondering why I paid a $140.00 cleaning fee when it was so dirty!!!
This is the 2nd year renting Gulf Village 317. The location is amazing and beachfront location couldn't be better. This 3 room rental accommodated 4 women nicely for a long weekend getaway. Little things left room for improvement - handle on master slider falling off, stains on carpet, master closet door broken but nothing that makes it awful. The building itself could use some TLC...paint and cleaning. Overall it's a great place for a beach getaway.
Very relaxing!! The view was breathtaking and the ladies at the office were very welcoming. The only thing I hated was havering leave. We will defiantly use bender reality again.
The vacation rental experience was overall what we expected. There were a few communications with the rental company during our stay that weren't expected (elevator was out a few times, they requested access to condo during our stay for a 10 minute final walk through on a closing, left a message on our home phone & claimed we didn't call when we checked out...I guess they didn't get the message that was left at 4:00am)Overall the condo itself is represented well in the pictures and the bedrooms were larger than we expected.
The condo was lovely...great views..clean and the kitchen was more than well equipped.We had a great time and would return again for sure!!
