“great weather.and a grand time had by all !!!!!!!!!!!!”
We have been coming to Gulf Shores for a number of years now and always to the Sandpiper!! It seems to be getting more and more expensive for lodging to make this trip. I don't know if I will be able to continue these trips...... so sad ):
“We love the Sandpiper!”
Everything about our trip was great! We have stayed at the Sandpiper several times and always love it. This year was the first time we had any problems. The refrigerator did not work properly. We called for service about 10:00 pm after purchasing $350.00+ in groceries and were told by the tech that he probably couldn't come that night. We called again the next morning and a tech came, spent 5 min. checking the temp (48 degrees) and said it would be fine. It was not fine. My husband fixed the refrigerator himself once we realized we would not get any help and would probably lose our groceries. The stove in the unit also needs attention but, after the fiasco with the fridge, we didn't even bother to call. So not at all happy with response from the service side. For $1800.00 a week, we do have certain expectations. But the office staff are wonderful to deal with and are always very nice and helpful. We did re-book the same unit for next year so, hopefully, the appliance issues will have been resolved by the time we return. We loved the abundance of furniture in the unit so that we could all sit comfortably together in the evenings and the view was great! Overall, this unit is great and we really liked it very much. Looking forward to returning next year!
“Furniture needs updating as well as wall coverings”
We always enjoy the Sandpiper however this year 14A is showing its wear. The furniture needs replacing and the wall coverings need updating as the paper is coming loose. The baths need some caulking around the vanities. It was clean and when we asked for someone to help with the thermostat the man was quick to respond and it worked well after that.
“Review of the Sandpiper 14A Bender Reality”
We have rented a Condo at the Sandpiper for the last 6 years along with our children and other family friends. We have enjoyed the location and also the professional and friendly staff at Bender Reality. One concern we would have is that although the housekeeping staff had the conco clean when we arrived, we feel the carpets and furniture need a good cleaning or even may need to be replaced. Other than that we had a very enjoyable stay as usual.
“14A Needs Renovated, Not super clean”
I'm not quite sure what our $110 cleaning fee went toward. I sure it wasn’t for cleaning the floors, wearing white socks around made it evident. I also find the practice of paying for the unit in full a month in advance as outlandish, especially since we have been established renters for 7 years or so. Although it may be what the market supports, I will shop around for a new rental that doesn’t demand my money early, and conforms to more traditional practices.
We had a great time. I only wish it could have been longer.
Over all it wasOK. We what a problem one night. We came back from dinner and there was water laeking from the ceiling in the living room. Water was falling on the end table And all over our iPad and the furniture. We could not use some of the furniture until it dried out. Our ipad is ok but we had to deal with the plumber for several hours. Also no one from bender ever call us back to check on the problem. The water was coming from the unit above us.
“Little piece of heaven”
We have been staying at The Sandpiper since 1996. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. We love it
“Sandpiper in July”
Everything was great, however, I was sad to see that the beach had become commercialized. The selling of beach chairs and the price they demanded left a bad taste in my mouth. Keep in mind that I have stayed at the Sandpiper for 40 years and it once was a place that was away from the beaten path. I guess time marches on. Nevertheless our time there was wonderful !!!
Shade in bedroom did not cover the window. Needs new couch, love seat and chair, old and dirty.
