What Past Guests Are Saying
McBain, MI, United States
We were very happy with the Legacy building overall. Our condo was perfect for the 6 people we had staying there. There were definately a few things that needed a little TLC - the carpets could use a cleaning or replacement and the walls all needed a fresh coat of paint. But overall - we enjoyed our stay there. One thing we loved about the Legacy was the heated pool - great for not so hot weather - and the bathrooms located by the pool. That saved us several trips back up to the condo with little kids. We also loved the key-less entry - no worrying about lost keys on the beach. Thanks for a great week!!!
New Ulm, MN, United States
Needs some attention
The layout of the condo is good but it needs some updating. It needs new flooring throughout, better balcony furniture (it just has the cheap white plastic furniture, with only 3 chairs), a new master bed mattress and new comforters and pillows for all beds, and flat screen TV's. We did have an issue with the elevator a couple of times but it was promptly fixed. The staff at Bender Realty is the best.
Longview, TX, United States
Fun at the Beach
We really enjoyed the condo and it fit perfectly with our three couples.

6 COUPLE MINI VACATION
MY WIFE AND I TOOK THE MINI-VACATION WITH 5 OTHER COUPLES AND WE HAD A VERY RELAXING GOOD TIME. THE ONLY THINGS THAT WE MISSED AT OUR LOCATION WAS A DIGITAL T.V. IN THE LIVING AREA AND A HOT TUB WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE. OTHER THAN THAT WE HAD ALL THE COMFORTS THAT WE NEEDED.
Cincinnati, OH, United States
This was our 2nd year booking this condo as it works well for 3 couples. The only issue we had this year was the outside furniture was broken, so only had 3 working chairs for 6 adults for the entire week. The lock also broke, but the maintenance man was there to fix within 2 hours, very acceptable!!! Would rent it again but hope they replace the outside furniture and clean the unit a little better.
Cincinnati, OH, United States
The view from the balcony of the condo was great.
My family really enjoyed our vacation in Gulf Shores, AL. The condo was perfect for our stay. The view of the beach from the condo was awesome. I would certainly recommend this condo to anyone who would like to visit Gulf Shores.
Louisville, KY, United States
We had a great time and the condo was wonderful, we have stayed at this condo for many years. Had a problem with the refrigerator but the management company was quick to send a repair person and everything was fine after that.
McComb, MS, United States
Would do it again
All went really smooth. The staff at the reality was very nice and helpful. Enjoyed the ease of the pool and short walk to the beach.
Russellville, ky, United States
the elevator was out of service a few times so I had to stay in the room till it was fixed I have a bad knee other wise it was a great vacation we loved being right on the beach
Ringgold, GA, United States
First Time In Gulf Shores
This was our first stay in Gulf Shores. We liked the layout of the unit and the view was awesome. It's probably time for the carpet in the hall and living area to be changed!! Looking up at all the balcony furniture from the beach, you can tell a difference in whether or not the owner really wants to make it a home-away-from-home for the renter. We've never stayed where we had to do laundry every day because there weren't enough towels & washcloths for at least 2 days. There were no potholders in the kitchen and 2 dishtowels and 1 dishrag. I know it's your policy, but I've never had to bring my own toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, etc. We didn't even start out with fresh rolls. When I stripped the beds the day we checked out, I noticed the pillows really need to be changed!
Sikeston, MO, United States
Great but needs updating!
We always have a great time when we stay here. However a little updating might be helpful...The carpet was dirty as well as the bathroom rugs/tile. This was not usually the case over the past few years that we've stayed here. We love this place but it just needs some tlc from having so many people in and out having a blast.
New Ulm, MN, United States
A Great Place
We enjoyed our winter stay at the Legacy very much. We appreciated the new furniture in the living room. The unit could use new flooring throughout and a king-size bed in the master bedroom. Also, the TV's should be updated to flat screens. We loved the layout with the open kitchen and living room area. It's a great location with awesome views!
Lanett, AL, United States
I was very pleased with my stay. The condo was super clean and had plenty of space for all. The management company was real helpful and courtious. My only problem was some ants in the kitchen area. Overall I was very pleased with my stay.
Eclectic, Al, United States
Love the location. Bender Realty is great to work week..the bes
Love the location. Property needs additonal items added to the kitchen, bowls, cookware, etc. Carpet needs cleaning, blinds replaced, Bedrooms need updating..same bedding from a yr ago.
Cincinati, OH, United States
The unit was very nicely decorated and the views were amazing. Bender Realty was a great company to work with and allowed us in our condo to start our vacation a little bit earlier. The only issues we had was that the pool was often dirty, had to call
a couple of times to ask that it be cleaned and the kitchen is lacking in amentities for 6 people; one skillet, no large pots, no plastic types of drinking cups, etc.
Saint Louis, MO, United States
Fun Times in Gulf Shores!!!
It was my first time in Gulf Shores and it was a great one! The property was nice and the pool was clean! I would recommend bringing extra toilet paper, dishwasher detergent, and laundry detergent!
East Prairie, MO, United States
Vacation July 2011
We had a wonderful time. The condo was nice. and the view was great. The condo had alot of room. The only thing was there wasnt enough bath towels.The kids enjoyed the pool and playing on the beach..
Ripley, MS, United States
Issue that need to be addressed
We enjoyed our at the Legacy rm 503. There were problems with the elevator that caused us to use the stairs. That needs to addressed. The Swimming pool was a worrible. It needs to be cleaned everyday. 2 days we could not or would not get in it due to it being very nasty. I had to call once myself to get someone there. The room was awesome for us. Plenty of room and bedding. The view from the balcony was breath taking. No Complaints there. When you pay hard earned money to come as far as we did, one would expect to be able to get in the pool. Thanks to Bender Reality for all of there help in this matter. Owners please get with your reality or who ever rents you condo. Lots of negative comments about pool and elevator problems.
Etowah, TN, United States
great stay for a great price!!
Very pleased w/ the condo & all it had to offer.. Would stay there again, & the realty was very friendly & helpful !!
Pleasant Grove, AL, United States
Before the Storm
My family and I enjoyed our stay. We had a wonderful time.Loved the condo/pool/beach.Went home to a tornado...blah. But we really had a great time at Legacy 503. Thanks!
Madison, TN, United States
Gulf Shores Baseball trip!!!
The condo was a perfect location for our stay. It was also just the right size for our group. The 3 bedrooms, each having it's own bath, was perfect.
Carmi, IL, United States
We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent on vacation and will definitely come again.
Ola, AR, United States
Gulf Shores 2010 and the Oil Spill
The condo was very nice and clean. They need to get more silverware and need dishes/cups that are not glass. The pool was nice thank goodness because the oil clean up was very discouraging. Finally on the 7th day you could see signs of some improvement. This had nothing to do with the condo itself but videos are misleading.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO, United States
We go to Gulf...
We go to Gulf Shores every summer with other family members. We have stayed in other units in the Legacey. We found this one to be very much lacking in the kitchen area. It was advertised to accomodate 8 adults yet did not have a full set of dinnerware available. also there were only 5 chairs around the dinning room table. The living room furniture felt dirty. One of the doors to the washer/dryer area was broken. Although I do like the general layout of the Legacy condos, we will not rent this unit next year.
Huntsville, Al, United States
My favorite beach location.
We love the west beach area - convenient, clean, and awesome as was our condo at The Legacy. We go to the beach at least twice a year and always rent from Bender - they are great!
Amory, MS, United States
We enjoyed our stay. Suggestions: Get rid of the rug in front of sink-it is a
potential hazard. Carpet cleaned or even
better replaced. Upgrade den chairs.
Everything else great. Staff at Bender the best.
Great rate, great condo, great vacation
Little Rock, AR
60 people stayed at property
We rented 11 condos for the week. We had a wonderful time. Only one problem the condo manager had an attitude - his ego and controlling personality was not welcomed. Then he remarked since we were renting so many condos that he would be nice - he needs to be nice at all times to all renters.
Other than him - it was great.
We plan on reserving the condos again next year same time. We booked with 3 diferent management companies - it would be nice to go thru only one with possible discounts for so many rentals.
A Beautiful Week in Paradise!!!
This was our 2nd year staying at the Legacy and we loved it!! The condo is perfect for our family. We LOVE that it is not a huge building, I think there are 23 rooms total. The building and pool area is clean and our room is ALWAYS spotless when we arrive. We can not wait till next year:)
Thanks again Bender Realty and the Owner of this condo!!!
Great Property, Not so Great Condo.....
It's time for an upgrade!! I love the Legacy (rented 2 condos their last season) This unit 503 needs an upgrade and the carpet was FILTHY!!!! You had to wear shoes inside if not your feet turned black. WILL NOT STAY IN THIS UNIT AGAIN!! But we will be back to the Legacy!!
New Athens, IL
Very nice condo. Beautiful view.
the owners really need to up grade there rugs in kitchen there is no tread left on back
We have stayed in this particular unit several times simply because it fits our family of 5 adults well. Sofa plus three chairs in living area. While we like the type beds (no twin/single sizes), the mattresses are not very comfortable and need replacing. Unless the person in the bedroom closest to the kitchen is a very hard sleeper you will probably want to turn off the icemaker at night; it is very noisy. Kitchen appliances are fine but the cookware/dinnerware isn't stocked too well. I was sad this year to notice that Legacy has made no effort to clean up the beach where the sea oat protective fencing had come down in the past. Hadn't happened recently because parts were quite buried; no new fencing had been installed. Legacy units are well laid out though & Bender is very professional.
Great Family Vacation
The condo was clean, comfortable and very convenient to everything. Staying on the beach is the best, no matter what the weather is like (it rained 3 of the 4 days we were there!). Watching the weather roll in and the ocean change from rolling to smooth was fascinating!
You can't go wrong w/ Legacy 503
Legacy 503 is an awesome condo to stay in. I stayed there w/ my 2 kids, my sister & my parents and there was plenty of space for all of us. Two of the bedrooms have their own baths, which was a great surprise, and the third bathroom is right outside the third bedroom's door. The location of the building was perfectly close to everything w/out being too close. We visited in October, so the city wasn't swamped w/ tourists. It was very peaceful. We were surprised to find out that the owners of the condo are from our home state of KY. We will definitely stay there again.
Carpet needs to be cleaned!!! It left my chilren's feet black. Also, hot water heater is a burn hazard. It was scalding hot. Otherwise, great location & great condo.
Awesome Beach Vacation!
The only complaint was the amount of noise that the hot water heater made each time someone took a bath. You had to turn the television up when the heater was running.
Ocean Springs, Mississippi
Great stay! Changed to the Legacy to accomodate more family members. Very comfortable for all of us when the weather was bad. Bender is first rate!
The pool was quite small. the condo hass sand/dirt on top of th
Plenty of room. Bad odor coming up from the dumpster up the dumpster shoot when the wind blew which was about everyday
Love our Vacation!!!
This was our first of hopefully MANY trips to Gulf Shores. The condo we stayed in was PERFECT (we want to BUY it:) and Bender Reality could not have been anymore helpful!! I would recommend GS and Bender to everyone. Thanks for a great trip, a GREAT clean BEAUTIFUL Condo and a week of AMAZING weather:-)
See you next year!!!
Hartford City, IN
We have been coming to Gulf Shores for 7 years now. We always book through Bender. This year we arrived early as usual around 10 AM. We were told that our room was not ready so we went and ran some errands hoping for it to be ready. We have had to do this in the past also. Although in the past they get the room clean within a few hours knowing that we were there ready to check in. This year we sat in the parking lot of our condo until 3 PM. We were very frustrated because we know that you know that you don't have to have it ready until 3 but we were there and if the process could of been done quicker we would of appreciated it. Also this was the first year staying at the Legacy and the beach was far too crowded due to the hotel that sit across the street. We will definetly not be staying at this condo again. The beds were also very uncomfortable.
Beautiful Condo! Great Views!
Nicely decorated with all the amentities for a family vacation. Perfect location to the pool and beach, we will stay here again!
Excellent condo. One of the best we have ever stayed at in Gulf
Maintenance Need : When hot water is being run in the bathrooms , there is a loud sound associated with the HOT WATER HEATER. ( Sounds like air in the lines ) This needs to be investigated. You will receive complaints about this. Everything else was great !!
Relax and refresh!
We loved the property! The only thing that would improve it would be a DVD player in the BR's, at least the master BR
