“We'll Be BAck!”
Its been 7 years since we've been to the beach so this was a much needed beach getaway retreat and were o so blessed with the perfect unit. STunning & beautiful location and could not want for a better condo unit. Beautifully decorated and so very comfortable! Loved the corner unit having a larger than normal balcony and view. Kitchen very well stocked for all your cooking conveniences which we did none but had we it would have been great:) We stayed the week after labor day so crowds were less and the traffic too and "NO Waits" at the restaurants which was just Lovely! Perfect Condo & beach and we will stay here again. Wish i was there now:)
“Best stay on the beach”
beautiful condo, location, and balcony,could not have improved on anything except a later check out time than 10 am
Enjoyed the condos 806 & 906 for my family.
“Another Week in Paradise!”
This was close to our 20th family vacation in Gulf Shores and we'll keep coming back. The beach is beautiful ,the people friendly, the condo, very nice. It's was the first time at Island Royal,.(Usually we stay at the Gulf Village.). The balcony was very spacious, the furnishings comfy. This condo was smaller than at G. V.,but having a 3rd bath was nice. My only complaint is that the condo is advertised to sleep 8. The sleeper sofa was impossible to sleep on. The mattress was lumpy and thin,(I have found this to be the case in almost all condos with any age.) Fortunately our daughter had an air mattress. Also only 2 cars are given a parking pass...understandable if the condo is full, but ours was not. Our son-in-law had to park almost a block away. We cook a lot on vacation as our grandson has severe food allergies. Besides, we didn't want to have to clean up and wait forever at a restaurant, missing my favorite time on the beach. We discovered that our mixer didn't work, and the staff at Bender brought a replacement less than 10 minutes after we called. The kitchen was very amply furnished with dishes, pots and pans and small appliances. My only wish, (and I am an admitted neat freak) is that there was a better vacuum for the ceramic floors. 8 people can drag in a lot of sand even with hosing off before entering the condo. We've been all over the east coast, but nothing compares to the beaches in Gulf Shores. We're already planning next years trip!
“Great Condo - Great Week”
The condo was very clean and well stocked with everything that we needed. Plenty of room for all 7 of us. Wonderful beach access - Beautiful views - Love, love, loved it!
Response from the manager We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in Island Royale 806. Remember, you can reserve your beach rental early for next year. This beachfront condo books fast!
“Not what we expected.....”
Bender realty not that friendly. Was told we could have an early check in and when we arrived that did not happen,in fact they waited until the last minute ,5pm exactly to call us to check in, after we had planned our entire trip around this!! Once inside we found that most of the dishes were too large for the dishwasher-who wants to wash dishes on vacation?! Also, we did not get to enjoy the balcony/view as much as we would've had liked to due to the fact that the surrounding neighbors smoked! It would be nice if the entire condo would be smoke free.The elevators were broken on/off all week long,and took hours to fix, which we heard is a common problem in this bldg, which is hard when you have alot of beach stuff to carry to/from the 8th floor!The pool is rarely in the sun, shaded from the huge condo next door and is very small, also closed for 3 days! The condo itself is very spacious,all 3 BR have their own baths.
“Beach vacation 2013”
The condo was clean and well stocked. The decor was very pleasing. Bender Realty was easy to deal with and very professional.
“Great Place to Stay”
Had a great time. Unit spacious, clean and filled with all we needed.
“Excellent place to stay on the beach!”
The condo was in a beautiful spot right on the beach. The views were spectacular. The building was very well taken care of, and this condo was a perfect vacation for our family of 6. Very clean, well stocked, and location couldn't be better! We appreciated the courtesy of the folks at Bender Realty also in making the booking very painless.
“Great time in gulf Shores!”
22 family members celebrating grandma's 80th birthday and thanksgiving. Lots of fun and good memories in gulf shores! we'll be back.
