A guest from Columbus, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 We loved the location and view. Of course the beach was awesome. Three things to note. The bed in the master is small. We noticed we had neighbors smoking on their patios, we also noted several guests brought pets.
A guest from Mobile, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 Location of unit was wonderful but the building itself had mold in the bedroom that made me sick with respiratory infection. Decor was nice and amenities were nice except that the steam room was out of order and the sign looked like it has been out of order for a very long time. View was fantastic from balcony but chairs on balcony were uncomfortable.
Stephen W. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 very good elevator problem was distraction

A guest from St. Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 I loved the fact that this was a small property, and unit 603 was very clean and furnished beautifully! The only drawback to this property was the sand walkway to the beach. A wooden walkway would certainly improve the Caribbean Condos.
A guest from Altamont, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 We had a great time staying at the Caribbean. This was our second time staying at the Caribbean and would highly recommend it. It is beachfront, very family oriented, it has everything you need for a family.The condo was clean and furniture was ok (might need to replace the sleeper sofa) overall we had a very good stay. The staff at BenderRealty is always so nice and helpful. We will definitely be staying there again.

Thom L. from Marietta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 Fantastic condo, I loved the layout and the supplies available. Only complaint would be one inside lounge chair was worn out and needs to be replaced. The carpet also needs cleaning. Overall a great experience !

Tiffiny H. from Smyrna, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in October, 2014 This was our fourth visit to Gulf Shores and with Bender Realty. They are wonderful to work with. We are already planning a visit for next June and October!
Madison A. from Clanton, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 Our trip to Gulf Shores was well needed with mine and my wifes busy schedules with our 1 year old. The Caribbean condo was awesome and it even had an indoor pool that we could take our son at night or in the heat of the day. The weather was in the mid 80's which made it perfect to lay out on the beach and just enjoy the view. The staff at Bender Realty was extremely nice and recommended some amazing places to eat.
ENJOYED THE BEACH-EVEN THOUGH WE WERE UNABLE TO GET ON THE BEACH
A guest from Crossville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 A GOOD FIT FOR US....TRAVELING WITH A CAREGIVER AND DISABLED HUSBAND...DECIDED ON THIS ONE BECAUSE WE HAD STAYED AT THE CARRIBEAN BEFORE AND THIS ONE HAD A RECLINER THAT MY HUSBAND SLEPT IN. OTHERWISE HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TOLERATE STAYING AWAY FROM HOME. SO THANKFUL
Robert P. from Ooltewah, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in September, 2014 Our stay in The Caribbean 603 was absolutely wonderful! The room was our favorite so far. It was clean(as always), but the carpet just made it even better. The only complaint we had was the temperature of the indoor pool being tampered with by an unknown person. My wife and I enjoy going at night but the water was either freezing cold or very hot. Bender Realty staff was very kind and fixed it in a timely manner but I think the temperature controls should be locked so no one could adjust it. We visit the Caribbean every year and will continue to do so as long as possible.
Lauren K. from Arnaudville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 Condo was super clean and exactly as advertised. The kitchen had almost anything you could need to cook with. We were only four people so we used the two mattresses from the twin bunk beds to place on top of the sleeper sofa mattress. The bed in the master was super comfortable. The staff at Bender was super easy to work with. The pool was never crowded and the guest were never loud or disruptive. All around great place to stay. You will not be disappointed.
A guest from Greenville, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Felt like home away from home. We saw lots of dolphins at the beach. The condo was wonderful with a great view and large balcony. Beach access was very close and we would absolutely come back!
Stacy H. from Spencer, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014 I would definitely use your company again to book our vacation! everything was done in a professional manner, the condo was very clean and felt like home, the ladies at Bender Rental were exceptionally nice and very helpful! I can not wait until next year to return :)
Dustin W. from Guntown, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 This was a clean condo. Excellent choice ofor our 7 day stay in Gulf Shores. Bender is a great realty company to work with.
April L. from Columbus, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 Love,love,love the location of this rental! Just a few miles from the 'T'...away from the big crowd, yet close enough to walk/drive to shops and restaurants. The beach is just steps away! This is a 6th floor condo and the balcony views are amazing! The building was clean, quiet, and safe. Check-in/out was a breeze! Staff were very friendly. The condo itself was super clean, plenty of linens, and kitchenware. It was just 2 of us, but a family of 4-5 could easily enjoy this unit. We will most definitely be back!! Thanks for a wonderful, perfect weekend!
James M. from Spring Green, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 Very enjoyable, We always enjoy Gulf Shoresevery year. Bender Reality responds quickly if called with a problem.
A guest from Barlett, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 We had a great time the kitchen had all the utensils you needed to cook with, I loved the view from the patio. Great stay
Eric M. from Moody, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 A great little spot away from all of the big condos. Close to the "T" with lots of space on the beach. Great location.
Lindsey T. from Terre Haute, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 We had a wonderful time and could not have been happier with the rental! The ONLY reason I gave a 4 on cleanliness was that there were a couple crabs in the pool I removed for the kids! This is probably common so near the beach! It was beautiful and perfect! We WILL be back!!
Myra R. from Frankfort, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 This was the second year in a row we stayed here! We will go back next year as well. Had a wonderful time. Everything we wanted to do was close by! Thank you!
Jim C. from Collins, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 We recently spent our Thanksgiving holiday at Carribean 603. We really loved the condo and really look forward to staying there again. The decor and furniture were very nice and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking our Thanksgiving meal. We highly recommend this condo
Michael B. from Milton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2012 Firt impressions mean alot,so when we got to our door we noticed the rust around the door and thought oh no!But we were very satisfied with our room on the inside.We would very much stay here again!Thanks for everything.
A guest from Noxapater, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 Overall we were satisfied with our stay. There were a few areas in the condo that could have used more attention during cleaning however. The walking distance to the beach was very short compared to other condos we've stayed in. Very friendly staff. We plan on returning!!
A guest from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 My daughter and I stayed at the Carribbean for 5 nights and had an absolutely wonderful time. The condo was clean and decorated beautifully. The view from the balcony was terrific, and it was so nice to finally have a comfortable bed on vacation! We will definitely be staying here again next summer - Thank you!
Eric L. from Louisville, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 Second time we have stayed at Caribbean! I love the personal feel of the smaller condo. The staff at Bender realty is great and you get beachfront views for an awesome price. Keep it up Bender! We'll see ya next time!
A guest from Dallas, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 We arrived at the condo about 8:30pm after being in the car all day when we got to the condo the elevator was broken, and when you are on the 6 th floor that's a problem! We lugged all our stuff and two little girls up 12 flights of stairs. The condo was ok, it could definatly use a face lift. The things that bothered me were, the matress pads on the bunk beds had not been washed, they had hair on them. Also the surrounding walls to the bunks were just nasty, dirty. Then the shower curtain had mold growing on it. The whole time we were there I just felt like it wasn't clean. When they did get the elevator working it was nasty too! It had water puddles in it from everyone coming in from the pool, no ventilation in it at all. If you are just looking for a reasonable beach condo and don't care about it being clean, then go for it! It is right on the beach and it has decent furniture.
Greg R. from Benton, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Very disappointed in the elevator. Numerous problems. Had to carry luggage and personal items down six stories of stairs when leaving.Was very disappointed with your smoking policy. I have asthma problems. Neither I or my 9 year old granddaughter could sit on the balcony because of the smoke. I believe that you should have a designated smoking area downstairs only.Mr wife, granddaughter and I love sitting on the balcony, especially at night and also leaving the patio door open to listen to the water. However, due to the smoke, both day and night,we could not sit outside or leave the door open for the smoke.I feel that none smoking people are cheated for what they get at the condo if they have to deal with smoking people ruining their visit.Again, I believe that you shoud have a designated smoking area somewhere down around the parking area and not anywhere around the rooms.Smoking on the patios or rooms is also a potential fire hazard depending on how people dispose of their smoking materials. They will usually drop them in a trash container when they are done.I am a certified national fire investigator and have been for 30 years. This is truly a potential disaster for the owners and guests at the condo. It only takes one unresponsible person for a disaster. You add heavy drinking to that and it makes it 100% worse.Carelessy discarded smoking materials causes severe property damage and loss of life every year around the country. I hope you will think about this seriously and think about my reccomendation.Respectfully!Greg Rudell
Phillip S. from Collinsville, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2012 We had a wonderful time in this unit! It was perfect for our family. Being that it isn't a large property, the beach and pools were not very crowded. The elevator went out on several occasions, and it was quite difficult to climb 6 flights of stairs with three small children and our belongings. We had to clean the condo a little ourselves - the baby was finding old food in the carpet and trying to eat it! There was an old bar of soap in the shower, etc. Overall, this was a great unit with an amazing view and Bender was wonderful to work with.
Myra R. from Frankfort, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 We had such a good time. We are planning on making this our yearly vacation. Great weather, great food, great shops, lots of things to do, and the condo was wonderful!
A guest from Conway, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2012 The location is absolutely perfect. Easy to get to and I like being on the 6th floor where we have a view of the ocean as far as you can see! The ladies at Bender Realty are always very pleasant to work with. I would certainly recommend this unit to my family and friends. A few things on the downside- the sleeper sofa could use a new mattress, the elevator down button was not working quite right and we found a drinking cup under the bunk bed mattress when we first made up the bed, so it was there before we were. These are all things that can be remedied easily.
A guest from Robbins, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 The only complaint I had was the outdoor pool was dirty for a couple of days so I called the realtor and reported it not being cleaned everyday.
Julia H. from Sahuarita, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2011 This location was perfect- all of the balconies at this location face the beach. I was waiting for the "hidden costs" that accompany a rental, there were none. We were extremely pleased with the location, the amenities (the younger kids love the pool), and Bender Realty. We can't wait to go back. Thank you! P.S. Dophins swam by several mornings during our stay... PRICELESS.
Kimberly H. from Bardstown, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 Wonderful condo, very much my taste. We have visited Gulf Shores for the last six yrs - usually we go to the Pheonix condos. I actually liked this smaller condo better. I liked the associates that I booked with and I think that made the diffrence. The downside to that is the Brett Robinson does always offer the extra night free. Pay 3- stay 4. The only actual problem we had was the room was a little dirty. Dishes were dirty right out of the cabinet, so I had to wash them and also the more disturbing was the bathroom in the bedroom. Floor and tub very dirty. I had to clean the tub before we could shower. Black hair in it (long and short) that of course was not ours. Ewww. Floor still had razor covers on it and hair everywhere. I liked the condo a lot so I would return if it could be a little cleaner. I did way to much cleaning to be on a vacation away from our four kids. Thanks for asking our opinion. Get a new housekeeper and I would rate it great.
A guest from Bremen, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 We loved the decor of the condo,it was very lovely.We had to do a little cleaning when we arrived.The entrance to the building was difficult.Probaly wouldn't not stay here again.
Bernadette W. from Morrilton, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 We had a great stay in the Caribbean 603. This was my first time to visit Gulf Shores and I will return in the future. The condo was perfect. It was very clean and well decorated. The location was awesome as well.
William M. from Jackson, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2010 We were very happy with the property. It was tastefully decorated, very clean and we loved the view and sounds from the balcony! We will be coming back, hopefully soon!Thank you!
A guest from LaGrange, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 Perfect time of year--no humidity! Water was still warm, beach was glorious. Crowd were low, no long waits. Will definitely be back!
Leah H. from Moulton, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010 This was my families first time to Gulf Shores, and our room at the Carribean met all of our expectations. The view was great, decor was very nice, and the master bed was so comfortable! We would definetly stay in this room again.
Valerie K. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 We really enjoyed our stay at Caribbean. The staff was extremely helpful. The decor in room 603 was very nice. I like having carpet as it keeps the room from echoing so much. Good size pool for the kids to play. Not too far of a walk to the beach from the condo. Will stay again!
Vicki R. from Benton, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2010 Condo was very clean. Furniture was good, balcony furniture was good. Kitchen well equipped. One of the better units where I have stayed over the years. The staff at Bender Realty is great!! Very helpful and caring. They take an interest in YOU!!! I highly recommend this realty company.
Dan W. from Wyoming, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 We stayed April 2nd thru the 8th, 2010. Unit 603 is extremely well furnished and up to date, making the stay that much more comfortable. The building seems much more intimiate than it is and it made for a very quiet and relaxing vacation. We will be back for years to come!
A guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2010 Good location. Nice to have an indoor and outdoor pool. The condo itself was fine, however, the master bath could have been cleaner. The bath rug in the master bath looked like it hadn't been washed in quite some time. The closet doors behind you while looking in the mirror were covered with hair spray etc. And the baseboards in the bathroom need attention. The kitchen was great, lots of pans, dishes etc. The beach there is beautiful. Really needs to have a deep clean of the master bath, of no fault of the owners.
Mark H. from Louisville, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009 Had a wonderful time - only issue was wtih horseflys/some type of flying insect swarming the pool area.
Crystal C. from Addis, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2009 We could not access any free wireless internet, which was a real let-down. Unfortunately, I will not stay in this unit again because of that. I rarely have to pay for internet when I travel and was disappointed that I had to do so here. Other than that, it was a very nice stay.
Lisa B. from Trussville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2009 The kitchen cabinets were not clean on the outside. The bedroom appeared they had dusted around objects. The bathroom closet bi fold doors were off track.
A guest from North Little Rock, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2009 I loved it, but will say that someone in it before us had smoked inside. We did some fumigating and it was gone, so no big deal. Otherwise, it was perfect!
A guest from Bartlett, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 The only major negative thing I could say about our stay is about the elevator. I was already concerned about this before arriving because of what I had read in a couple of other reviews. The elevator was slow and iffy at times and did eventually quit working one day. Other than that we loved it!
A guest from Fayetteville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 The ONLY thing I didn't like was there wasn't good water pressure and you really didon't feel like you were getting good and clean. Other than that it was Great!!
A guest from Sweet Water, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009 We enjoyed our stay, and the condo was very nice; the elevator didn't work one of the days, but they fixed it quickly. We would definitely stay here again.
Karl R. from Lafayette, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2008 A peep hole needs to be applied to the door, so that in case someone knocks you can see who you are opening the door for?
Verita M. from Tupelo, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2008 This was a great place to stay. Everything was very nice. The only thing I wish they offered is wireless internet.
A guest from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2008 People should not be allowed to set up tents and leave there junk on the beach day end and day out. It looks awful and distracts from the view of the beach and ocean
Jill B. from Clarksville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2008 This was our very first time visiting Gulf Shores. A friend recommended that we stay at a Bender location since that is who they use. We fell in love with Caribbean 603 and will be back next year! We loved the smaller condo, loved the location and amenities, and were happy with the Bender staff. The only thing that was wrong with the condo unit was a few matainence issues. The curtain rod above the sliding glass door was barely hanging in the wall - we were afraid to touch the curtains for fear of them falling. The bathroom closet door was off the tracks - no big deal. It was still usable. The headboard in the master bedroom was also detached from the wall. Again, no big deal, we just didn't want to be blamed for it. Other that that, we had a great time. Thank you for helping to make our first family vacation a very enjoyable time. See you next year!
Holly F. from Tuscaloosa, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2008 Condo was very clean and had a wonderful view, beautiful decor and comfy seating. Not very baby friendly but that was okay, it has alot of breakable, easy to topple and hard metal furniture that made easy injuries (my toddler is only 14 months old and he falls alot as he is learning to walk) but that is no fault of the condo's, it never specified that it was baby friendly. My only complaint is the condition of the window treatments over the sliding door to the balcony, they were about to fall out of the wall which I was scared that it was going to fall on our kids but it never did and I am sure that someone will fix them soon if they haven't already. Overall the stay was wonderful and I am sure anyone will have a great experience there.
Shannon T. from Tallassee, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2008 The Caribbean is in a great location. Located right on the beach. The unit we stayed in was nicely decorated with a wonderful view of the beach from our balcony. The bunkbeds in the hallway were perfect for our two sons. Being a low rise condominum with less units than most other condomiums gave it a more private feeling. I would definatly recommend the Caribbean to those looking for a nice, clean, affordable place to take the family on vacation.
Donna G. from Harahan, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 Really, a great place for a quiet and relaxing or even a playful and energetic vacation. From walking the beach and swimming in the Gulf to gorgeous sunsets from our balcony and even to visiting the great restaurants and nite spots, the Caribbean at Gulf Shores will certainly be seeing quite a lot of the Giroir family in the future. Thanks for a great stay.
Jennifer C. from Evansville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2007 The only problem we had was that the elevator quit working several times...and at inconvenient times like when we were carrying up luggage, groceries etc... It was many long trips up the steps with all our paraphernalia.
