“A good place to stay”
This was a clean, updated condo on a nice beach area. The large balcony was a plus. The smaller bedroom needed a dresser since the only drawer space was under the TV cabinet. The rental agency was friendly and quick to respond to any needs we had.
“Great Stay - Great Family Get Away”
We had a great stay! Our place was wonderful - very nice and up to date. We would def stay there again - looking forward to it next year!
“Good Week at Gulf Shores”
Great location, liked the fact that there were restaurants that were in walking distance of the condo. Management was very friendly and polite, answered all our questions. Only “ding” we experienced was with the elevators at this condo. On the check-in there was only 1 elevator working and a couple days during the week an elevator was out of service. Overall, excellent time at Gulf Shores. Looking forward to going back next year and using Bender Realty.
Very clean, would highly recommend. Had elevator problems but staff was on top of fixing them.
The weather and atmosphere in Gulf Shores cannot be beat, and the staff at Bender is friendly, helpful and professional. Overall this was a wonderful vacation. However, there are concerns regarding the condo unit and Island Royale in general. This unit needs new fixtures in bathrooms and the rusty racks over the toilets should be removed. The bathtubs have rust stains and the shower curtain liners should be replaced. There were dirty pots and pans in the cupboards and the silverware drawer had food particles mixed in with the silverware. The unit was not cleaned well. The floors had dirt piled in the corners, and there was dried urine behind toilet and on toilet seats. I needed to clean the condo myself. The very high cleaning fee certainly is not justified. As for the grounds, there were cigarette butts around the pools, indoor and outdoor, even first thing in the morning. I do not know that there was much attention paid to cleaning. I was also surprised to see so much garbage on the beaches. In years past, the beaches were always cleaned on a regular basis. The only other concern is the amount of noise all through the night. In past years, I do not remember having "spring breakers" causing issues. But this year we had pounding music all night long and a lot of smoking on the balconies making it difficult to sit out and enjoy the view from our condo.
“Awesome doesn't begin to describe...”
My husband and I took our two boys (ages 5 & 8) for Spring Break. They LOVED the condo, pool are & hot tub! We loved it too. It really felt more like home than a rental. We plan on making this an annual vacation! The beach area was so nice. We rented chairs on the beach from Ike's for the day. Other than the cool weather & the FEW unruly College Spring Breakers (in other areas of town not at the condo) it was perfect!! There was plenty of hot water & towels. TV's in every room was nice in the evenings. The patio & view were amazing. I'm really missing falling asleep to the sound of the waves. I'm actually trying to get the rest of the fam to go with us next year. Bender mgmt is awesome. They tell you everything you need to know before you go & are super helpful & flexible with check in & check out. Late check in was super easy! THIS is the place to be in G'S. the elevators add a nice touch too! The master bed was amazingly comfortable! No complaints from the kids either. You barely heard any outside noise & couldn't hear your neighbors from inside the condo. Laundry room was nice & big. That was our stripping station when we came in from the beach.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Island Royale. The only thing we wished was there would have been a bathroom down by the pool.
Love the location, veiw was wonderful. The room was very quiet,a peaceful place to stay. I will be staying again in the future.
“Loved the Place”
We enjoyed our stay. This is one of the nicest places we've stayed. We will definitely stay here again.
We had a late check in so we couldn't really do much about our messy room until the next day. Even though we were asked if housekeeping needed to be sent to take care of things, our daughters had already taken care of it. My opinion is that if you charge $100 for housekeeping then it should've been done. Other than that, our stay was great! We were right on the beach and it was like a home away from home.
