Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 Great experience! 4th time here for spring break.

Compared to past experiences A guest from Fairland, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2015 This property was cleaner than some I have seen in the past. Most appliances looked new. However bed room TV's need to be serviced and we wrote this up when leaving. Plus we recommended the commode seats be replaced. Overall the condo was in great shape and kitchen supplies were good. I was disappointed in the size of the swimming pool and the parking lot is a little tight. When I go back in February I will drive the car not the pickup liked I had planned.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We hope that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Caribbean 204 is a nicely-appointed condo with a wonderful view from its private, beach front balcony. Thank you for your input; we were able to correct the mentioned issues immediately. Please note that Caribbean has an overflow parking lot which can accommodate larger vehicles. Be sure to call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!
Wonderful Vacation Dawn B. from Valdosta, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 We were very happy with our stay in Caribbean 204. We had every thing we needed, the location is beautiful. The property is convenient, and seemed safe. It was also very clean and management was awesome. We will defiantly be returning next year.
Recent Gulf Shores stay A guest from Springfield, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 This condo was perfect. The location was very close to many restaurants. The beach was only steps outside the condo building. Our family had a wonderful week in Gulf Shores and the Caribbean Condo.
Caribbean 204 Dorris G. S. from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Great stay. Beautifully decorated. Kitchen stocked outstanding.The only problem we had was the garbage disposal needs replacing. Guest bathroom tub does not drain well. The master bedroom floor was not clean.The biggest problem we had was unsupervised children at the pool. We did not get to use the pool or set on our deck as we liked because of the children were so loud. We only got to set out after 10 p.m. Several families tried to use the pool but gave up because of the unruly children.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. Thank you for your input; we are addressing these issues now. Please know that our office is open seven days a week, with housekeeping and maintenance on staff in order to address any issues that may arise during our guest's stay. Caribbean 204 is indeed a lovely condo that is well-stocked. Please give us a call in the future and allow us to assist you in booking a vacation on the Gulf Coast!
Great family vacation! A guest from Pearl, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 This was our second year to stay at this beautiful condo. We enjoyed it very much. The condo is decorated so well and the view from the balcony is perfect. We saw dolphins playing most days and the location is also perfect. We have stayed in high-rise condo buildings in the past and really like this thirty-two condo building. The beach was not as crowded as the other larger buildings down the beach, and having both an indoor and outdoor pool was a plus. The beds were very comfortable and the fully stocked kitchen was very nice for cooking meals and enjoying them on the balcony. We have two small children and there are extra sand toys and beach chairs that were also a bonus find. We will definitely be back a third time next year, and have and will continue to recommend this condo to our family and friends!
Carribean 204 was great A guest from Pendleton, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 I rented 3 condos for me and my family. This was the nicest of the three. Beds were comfortable and the condo was clean except for under the living room furniture. There were plenty of kitchen utensils (except the electric can opener didn't work). The washer and dryer were great. Dining table was glass and all scratched up, and the wicker furniture needs to be painted. None of these things is a reason not to rent it. Location was perfect. Our beach was not crowded, and there were never more than 8 people at the pool. The toilet paper holders were falling out of the walls in both bathrooms, and I offered to let Bender Realty come fix them while I was there, but they didn't follow through. Also, please note that checking in from 3-5 might mean you have to wait until 5!! We were not prepared for this wait.
Great Week! A guest from Pearl, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 We stayed here with our three young children and had a nice time. The condo is a little small, but big enough for one family. The beach was nice and wasn't crowded. The pool was a little small, but was fine as long as there weren't many people in it. I would suggest bringing your own kitchen knives if you plan on doing any cooking. The ones in the room are terrible and wouldn't even cut fruit. Overall, we had a great week and the kids really enjoyed our time there. We would definitely stay here again.
Caribbean unit 204 Norm F. from Republic, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 We have always stayed at Sandpiper but no vacancies. Our 1rst experience at Caribbean. It was fine - no complaints. Our unit was nicely decorated and comfortable. Well equipped!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. There's nothing like Sandpiper, but Caribbean is great as well, with its private balconies and indoor pool. 204 is definitely a nice unit. We look forward to seeing you next year!
very happy A guest from Bloomington, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 We were delighted with our condo rental. 2 grandparents and our 4 yr old and 6 yr old grandsons. We wanted to be ON the beach and we were. We wanted an indoor pool just in case of bad weather and that worked out great. We didn't need to use it! Having 2 bedrooms and 2 baths gave us the privacy we needed. The boys bathroom was small- adults would have been crowded but it was great for us. the layout was convenient- we liked the second floor to mostly avoid the elevator. It was so helpful to have a closet full of beach toys-boogie board! sand buckets, chairs and umbrella. The condo was quite clean- no place will be perfect, expect some sand and dirt in crevices. The folks at Bender were very helpful and we would have contacted them had we needed help but we didn't! We would stay there again. The beach was lovely, folks were friendly and it was very comfortable for our group. LOVED being there in October. No bugs, lovely weather for beach and swimming, not overly crowded. Ate most meals on the patio outside.

"THERAPY" A guest from Daphne, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 My family and I have had a difficult and stressful few months with the loss of my mother-in-law,health issues with my parents, and etc. We needed a break and this was the perfect place to was close to home. A piece of paradise in our own backyard.Awesome view!!! The beds were absolutely wonderful. Very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
Beach Lovin' A guest from Sherrard, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 The condo we rented was perfect. Very clean, newly decorated. We were in a great spot on the beach and the balcony gave us a perfect view of the ocean. I would stay here again. The master bedroom bed could be a bit more comfortable and the washer and dryer are a bit out of date, but other than that - it was a fantastic stay.
Wonderful stay Evan Y. from Alexander, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2014 We had a blast! We had trouble with our key and lock, we called the office and Bender sent someone right out (within the hour) to fix it. Thank you!
Couldn't ask for a better place to stay! Catherine D. from Sulphur, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 We were needing something to accommodate for a trip for 6 and this 2 bedroom was perfect. We had plenty of room. The condo was decorated so cute and had everything we needed for cooking. This condo is located close to the grocery store. Also the indoor and outdoor pool were kept up very nicely. I used the sauna and it worked great. I enjoyed my stay because of our wonderful unit and condo as a whole!

Love it!! Edie H. from Memphis, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2013 We loved the Condo. Wouldn't change a thing but would add lounge chair on the balcony, other than that would change a thing.
Dirty Condo, Realty company not helpful A guest from Linncreek, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 This condo was very dirty. When we first arrived we found that the condo had not been vacuumed or mopped, there were socks on the floor from the previous vacationers, sand, etc. We called the realty company and the did send someone back to finish clean, which they did vacuum and mop the floor, but the longer we were there the more grime and dirt we found. There was sand in the utensil drawers, hair with in the dishes, in the shower there was black mold/grime, dirty baseboards. There were stains on the walls in the living room that looked like someone had thrown something and it had trickled down. The internet had gone down for 2 days and when I called the realty company, they said "we dont know anything about it, but here is the phone number to the cable company" I thought that was very unprofessional, they are managing this unit, it is there job to find out what is wrong with the internet, not mine. If I was the owner of this condo, I would be ashamed to rent it in the condition that it was, and would be seriously looking for a new company to manage it.

Caribbean 204 Amy K. from Elizabethtown, Kentucky recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Only complaints we had were not enough chairs to sit in by the pool. It's clear there's not enough room for lounge chairs but they could put some folding or beach chairs around . Also, it could use a good scrubbing around the shower and toilets to get the mold out . Overall we were happy with the condo . Mattresses were VERY comfortable and that is a HUGE plus !!!
Gulf Shore Vacation 2013 Jennifer H. from Kimball, MI recommends this property.

Not as clean as it should be A guest from Toledo, OH does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 When you read a review, trust your instinct. I read other reviews about the condo being dirty, but the property company assured me that the carpet had been cleaned. There was mold in both the baths and the shower and tub bottoms would benefit from a good scrubbing. I have the exact tub and it is easy to keep clean. I raised the blinds in the master bath and there was a line of mold where the blinds set on the windowsill. In addition, there are so many decorative items that the cleaners are not able to dust properly.

Wonderful Getaway A guest from Smithdale, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 We loved our stay at Caribbean 204. The beds were SO comfortable. Can't wait to go back to see the new granite and tile they were supposed to be putting in after our stay. We had to put up some of the breakable (too many ceramics for 3 small kids). Wonderful place, hoping to return for another visit soon.
Great property! A guest from Brentwood, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 Love these condos! This unit is very comfortable and pretty. Although it could have been dusted a little better and the bed pillows need replacing, overall it was a really good condo. The fitness room and both pools were in excellent condition, and the grounds were well kept. Will definitely stay here again; it is one of our favorites!
Great place A guest from Birmingham, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 We loved staying here!!It is a wonderful location right on the beach, we had more than enough to make our stay a great one. The carpet needed more cleaning but my family and I will be staying here from now on and would recommend the caribbean to friends
Yes, only if it has new carpet... Cathy W. from Jacksonville Beach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Location, GREAT! Amenities were great, decent furniture, the carpet was the most disgusting carpet I have ever walked on.... I wouldn't have spent that kind of money for carpet in that shape. I feel I should have been informed before we arrived or even rented it... I was there for my wedding and extremely disappointed. If the carpet was better, it would have been a perfect place for us to stay.

Carribean 204 Stacy S. from Crestwood, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 Awesome location and condo. Only a few things i would change. The condo could have been cleaner. Leftover bath towel from previous tenant and some of the dishes weren't clean. Also the keys didn't fit the storage room where the carts were kept so we couldn't use one to take our stuff to the car when leaving. Bender staff gals are great! Professional and friendly. Thanks. Would definitely stay here again.
spring 2012 A guest from Pekin, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 The condo was nice but the carpet was filthy, needs replaced. Could not go barefoot because my feet would be black with the dirt from the carpet . We had a baby with us, he could not be put down unless we completely covered the dirty carpet with blankets. Also we did not have a screen on the slider, would have been nice since we also had a toddler on the trip. we love to hear the ocean all day but we had to keep the slidder closed. The matress in the guest bedroom need to be replaced, sags terribly in the middle. Also the deck furniture is old and needs updating. The building itself was wonderful and very nice. We we stay at the caribbean again not unit 204 unless the carpet is replace, screen replaced and new matress. Loved the location and the pool was kept very clean. Would be nice to have small table and chairs around the pool. relatives stayed in unit 201, it was very nice, clean and updated.

Great Time in Gulf Shores A guest from New Albany, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2011 We had a great time in Gulf Shores. Our condo was very nicely decorated and the view was beautiful, but oh that squeaky mattress. The queen size bed was so squeaky that if you sat down or rolled over you would wake up your partner. Owner should try it out and will surely hear what we are talking about. We would stay again in this unit if we know the mattress is replaced. Would love to have umbrellas at pool side and better table & chairs on the condo patio. We really like Gulf Shores and will return.As always, the employees at Bender Realty were great.

GREAT LOCATION : A guest from Paducah, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 The kitchen needed a few things some plastic glasses, the dishwasher had an awkward lower shelf ( too small) and for the price of the unit could you leave at least 3 packets of automatic dishwasher soap and more than 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom. Overall though the place was very lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a great location and the staff was very helpful when we had to make a special request with our reservation.

Thanksgiving 2010 A guest from Montgomery, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010 Great location, view from balcony & the indoor pool was heated. The condo was decorated nicely, but it is showing it's age. The carpet needs to be repaired/replaced. The vertical blinds at the sliding glass door are broken - there is no way to 'open' them to let light in - you must fight with them to push everything to the left; also, a slat is on the floor. The bed in the 2nd bedroom was very uncomfortable - hard to find a good spot. The TV remotes did not work. The lampshade in the 2nd bedroom was broken. As far as cleanliness - the master bathroom sinks were not clean & there was hair on the floor. The jetted tub was great & we enjoyed our time at the beach visiting friends, shopping and eating too much! We will use Bender realty again - no problems with the process.

My New Favorite! Gail C. from Brentwood, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 The condo itself was great. Master bathroom very luxurious! Since the property is small, no wait for elevators and it is far enough down West Beach that traffic is not an issue. Convenience stores, a restaurant, and ice cream parlor in easy walking distance. Management was open, honest, and flexible in regards to the oil spill situation. I highly recommend Bender and I love this particular unit!
Great condo; furniture needs replacement. Bruce N. from Lafayette, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2010 Great location...quiet...furniture needs replacing (we call it "funeral home furniture--one can get in but cannot get out of the seat). Would come back.
