Fun on the beach
john M. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015
It was mostly as I expected. Have stayed at Driftwood and in 1G before. The unexpected negative was the elevator work that blocked some of the parking and took one of the two evaluators off-line. I like the first floor rooms so it easier to use the stairs. The room was dirty and some of the pots and pans should replaced, but the price was reasonable and its for the beach. The beach rentals block a chunk of beach access with uncomfortable chairs. The star is always the easy access to Bahama Bobs

Response from Bender Realty, Inc.
We are so happy you enjoyed your visit to Gulf Shores. Driftwood Towers 1G has a great view of the beach from its beach front balcony and is in walking distance to a great restaurant! Please remember Bender Realty when you begin making plans for a future Gulf Coast getaway!

Aug.2015 vacation
Teresa B. from Tanneyville, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in July, 2015
We always enjoy Gulf Shores and the location of Driftwood Towers and setting is our place to stay. I would have liked for there to have been some hangers in this unit for clothing . The sofa sleeper is nothing anyone would want to sleep on. It really needs to be replaced.. At least this unit was clean. The staff at Bender Realty are always pleasant and very accomodating. I know prices always go up but truely feel these rates are too much. Departure fee and not having a clean unit plus the overall rate per week is going skyhigh.Having to pay for a "parking pass" beats it all. Other than all the maintenance going on, which made parking and getting to elevators a pain, enjoyed our stay as usual.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bender Realty, Inc.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Driftwood Towers 1G is certainly in the perfect location - so close to great restaurants and attractions. Please know that our office is open seven days a week, so any issues that a guest may experience can be resolved. The majority of condominiums charge for their vehicle passes; that is a Homeowner's Association policy, not a Bender Realty policy. When you are ready to rebook, we'll be happy to let you know of any condos that do not charge for their passes.

Driftwood Towers 1G (Unexpected Guests)
Chad S. from Northport, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015
We have been renting through Bender since 2001 and have always had a great experience until this stay. We checked in after 4:00 and as always the ladies in the office were amazing!! We arrived at Driftwood and while we were unpacking our suitcases we had a man with a Bender Realty shirt unlock and come in our unit. He apologized and said he did not realize we had checked in. The unit was well equipped for our needs. The only complaint for the unit is the ceiling was peeling in the bathroom and the main bedroom closet door would not close due to it being off the track. Around 8:15am,the morning of check out, there was a very loud knock on our door and it opened before I could get to it. Again, a male with a Bender shirt on entered our unit. Luckily, I was in the living room area and stopped him from walking through the unit while my family was still sleeping. He apologized and said he thought we had already checked out. This was very frustrating considering it was the second time someone entered unannounced in our room. We also left some laundry in the dryer and I called Barbara at the office as soon as realized it. She was very helpful and I made arrangements with her to get the clothing shipped if it was returned. We did receive a package that contained only 4 items, which is only a fourth of the items that were left in the dryer. Due to the experience of having individuals being able to enter our room without notice and the items not being returned that were left behind, I will not recommend or rent through Bender again. I understand Bender is not responsible for anything left behind but after this experience I would feel that my belongings or my family would be safe in renting through Bender again. This does not reflect on any of the ladies in the rental office. The office employees have always been professional and friendly through the years we have rented.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bender Realty, Inc.
We appreciate your input very much. We apologize for the surprise entrances from our inspectors. Saturdays are such busy turnaround days that there was obviously miscommunication as to check ins and outs. We apologize for the disturbances and will do our best to improve in our communication. Likewise, we regret the loss of some of your items. We do our best to retrieve the many items that are left behind each week, and we are sorry that we did not get all of your belongings. We would welcome the opportunity to work with you in the future.

Bama Beach in June
A guest from Alma, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015
Overall, it was very pleasant. I was a little disappointed in only 3 things. Front row parking was limited, due to construction. Gate at pool was locked(damaged) for most of the week. Our section of the beach was too crowded.

The Condo was the perfect location. You can tell that it is a older Condo, but it was very clean for the most part. Where the garbage can sits there was some electrical stuff that did not look so safe and we had children with us. The overall stay was great and the beds were very comfortable.

Great location, poorly kept
A guest from Odessa, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014
The condo is in a great location for what we needed. We are between the ages of 39-42 and have attended the Hangout Festival for the past 3 years. The condo is in walking distance from the festival ~0.5 miles. For this purpose only would I recommend this property. As far as cleanliness and furnishings, the condo needs a lot of help and I would not recommend this property. The only upgrades in the condo are the TVs. The condo was swept and possibly vacuumed. There was still hair remnants in the bathrooms. We ended up cleaning the condo ourselves. Overall, we were disappointed with the condo based on cleanliness and furnishings. Bender Realty was very friendly and professional.

Deep cleaning is the simple solution!
A guest from Wausau, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in March, 2014
Driftwood Towers is our very favorite property to stay at. It's clean and beautifully maintained. Unit 1D, however, could use a bit of TLC, mostly just a deep cleaning and a good washing of shower curtains, bed skirts and repair of window treatments in the 2nd bedroom. Cabinets sticky,need updating. Location: PERFECT!

Jennifer M. from Imperial, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013
We originally called about staying at another property and it was not available for the amount of days we wished to stay. The Bender Agent asked a few questions and then suggested Driftwood 1G. They suggested we call when we got to town and check on the possibility of an early check in. We arrived at lunch time and they said it was not ready yet and would call us as soon as it was ready. They gave us the code for beach access if we wished. We grabbed lunch and within 30 minutes the condo was ready. Settled in three hours early! Family loved the Condo/Property/Beach/Pool. Breakfast and coffee every morning on the ocean front balcony was perfect! Great vacation and we will be back.

Great Get-Away!
A guest from Conway, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013
This was a great place to stay - fit into our budget very nicely. I was a little concerned that I wouldn't get quite the beach view I was hoping for with this unit being on the 1st floor. But, it worked out great. I could hear noise from the pool but it wasn't too bad. The only real complaint I have would be the timing of the sidewalk construction that was being done the week we were there. Other than that, we really enjoyed the place!

A guest from Kennett, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 8 days in December, 2012
I have used Bender Realty many times now and truly love how warm, friendly and helpful the staff are. They really make you feel welcome. This was my first and last experience with the Driftwood for it was extremely nasty! At first glance it didn't look to bad do to the updated furniture and fresh coat of paint on the walls but the living room furniture was so filthy and stained that we wouldn't even set on it. The floors throughout the whole condo were so dirty it looked as if they had not been cleaned since they were installed. The cobwebs and dust bunnies were very over whelming. It very much saddens me to know that myself as well any else that rents a condo is charged a cleaning fee and this is the kind of services that are being provided. If I were the owner of that condo I would be ashamed and embarrassed to know that I owned that!!

We would definately stay at Driftwood again. I liked that it was a smaller condo and not one of those huge overcrowded one's. There was a few minor things - the coffee maker didn't work and the fridge was an antique that didn't make ice but that didn't interfere with the great time we had. We are already talking about returning next year and staying at the same location.
