Not satisfied with the Caribbean Condo
A guest from Covington, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
Overall our experience was ok. The majority of the time we had to park across the street because there wasn't any parking in the condo's parking lot. There were cars parked in the condo's without parking passes. The second day that we were there, the elevator went down. We had to walk up seven levels of stairs twice with all of our stuff and a cooler(very upsetting). The condo was clean overall. I think that it could have been cleaner considering the amount of money that we paid. I could see dust on the baseboards of the wall. I think that we would come back to the Gulf Shores however I'm not sure that we would stay at the Caribbean again. I rate this condo a overall 3. The general condition would be a 4. The property location would be a 5. The property cleanliness would be a 4. The property management was professional 5.

Awesome Getaway!
Bill H. from Odessa, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014
Bender is awesome to book any stay through. Professional, courteous, and accomodating. Our stay at one of their many condo rentals was an awesome getaway from home. We have rented from them several times in the past six years and have had a pleasant, relaxing vacation. This particular condo could use some deep cleaning, all in all it's a very nice location - Quick to the beach, quick to go to dinner,(dancing optional), and a quick trip to the ever so famous, Wal-Mart! Thanks Bender, we'll see ya'll next summer....maybe October!

The location & building were great! The condo kitchen wasn't fully stocked, the shower head was old, the bed was extremely hard & the pillows were excessively cheap! I would recommend the building but not condo #703 until some changes got made.

Great location!
A guest from Hillman, MN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in February, 2014
Great location! Floor in the main bedroom had something spilled on it that wasn't cleaned up. The furniture was okay but could have been better-it was cheap. We found out from other tenants that we could have rented the room for a month and only pay a small amount more for what we were charged for six nights. Staff not willing to work with us to exchange nights because of weather

Gulf Shores
A guest from Kansas City, KS recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
The rental itself was amazing - can't beat the location (was directly on the beach and not too far away from stores and entertainment). However, not impressed with Gulf Shores as a vacation location. With only one bar located in the town and almost nothing else to do, it was hard to find things to do when one day was rainy and overcast - would've rather been in FL where I've stayed before and knew what was in the area.

Pros and Cons
A guest from Calhoun, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
We stayed for 3 nights in August 2013. You can't beat the location. Close to many restaurants, shops, etc. and not far from outlet mall in Foley. Being right on the beach is awesome and is why we booked this condo rather than a more updated one on the other side of the road. Also loved that there was an indoor and outdoor pool. There were some minor things that could be improved including the overall decor (furniture in living room was not the best quality) and there was just way too much green for my taste! One pillow was stained yellow so we would not use. The shower curtain liner had mildew on it and needs to be replaced. The top bunk did not have a rail or ladder, so we were not comfortable using it. Also looked like the bedding on the bunks has seen better days. It would be nice to have some sort of dresser in the bedroom (maybe in the closet) to store clothes instead of living out of a suitcase. The appliances all worked great, but the washer and dryer are very small and the dishwasher was very loud. But I was glad they were available. For the price, it was not a bad deal and we enjoyed our stay very much.

After reading the mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised! It had everything we needed and the fact that it was right on the beach was great! A few things could use some updating and the bunk beds could use a ladder but we enjoyed our stay very much. This is our second time using Bender and we definitely use them in the future!

Dryer did not work and bender realty knew about it and did not tell us and offered for us to bring clothes to there office and dry but did not offer a discount on the room. I would have wanted a different room. We did not find this out until we had already unpacked. This was very inconvient. The area was great.

Good Vacation
A guest from Bryon Center, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
Caribbean 703:Good - Clean, nicely furnished, well-stocked kitchen.Not so good - Sleeper sofa was HORRIBLE. Would not have been able to use it the entire week. Toilet in master bath did not flush well, had to hold the handle down until bowl emptied. The dryer quit working and although the repair person showed up within 1/2 hour of our call on Wednesday, it still was not fixed when we left on Friday.Bad - Renters in 702 were horrible. Since Bender did not rent the unit, nothing can be done to prevent them from renting next year. Police and Condo security assured us they were being evicted due to them throwing beer and cigarettes off the balcony. However, they were not evicted. Very disappointing.

Very beachy and homey!!
Adrienne D. from Biloxi, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013
The condo had a very nice beachy feel. Everything was nice and tidy.We had everything we needed to cook and clean up after ourselves. We will definitely be returning to the Caribbean. I think everyone has a complaint about the fees that they charge, they are outrageous. I think personally people would rather pay more for the room than see the.crazy charges on the invoice. Also, when I booked the room.i was not informed of the charges, she just have me an ending balance (which was reasonable). Therefore, I felt like they were trying to keep that from me until it was already to late to question the amount. Just ask for a detail of the charges beforehand. This was my first time renting a condo, so I wasnt aware of the process. And lastly they didnt inform me that you have to check-in at a different location than the Condo. My 2 yr old was furious that she had to get back in her carseat. It would have been nice to know ahead of time. Overall, the experience was great, once we got to the condo!!

Not very happy
Jorita M. from Lewisburg, TN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012
The condo needs some work. There were holes and cracks on the doors, the condo color & furniture needs a modern update. Also, my husband and I were getting ready to go out and the cleaning man just let himself in without knocking/saying room service because he assumed the condo was empty. I left my cosmetic bag in the bathroom and called Bender Realty and they told me that items are kept in the laundry room when found and they would call me to see how I wanted it shipped to me but I never received a call back so I assume my cosmetics and bag were trashed or kept by the cleaning people.

Caribbean 703
A guest from Rock Hill, SC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012
The Caribbean was a pretty nice place to stay but the condo itself needs some updating. I would suggest a fresh coat of paint, some updated living room furniture, and a better king size bed in the bedroom. The master room also had some mold above the fan in the bedroom. Also the door in the master bedroom going into the bathroom was broke, as if someone had hit it. I wouldn't stay in condo 703 again, but would come back to the Caribbean.

#703 at Caribbean
A guest from Corinth, Texas does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
The staff at Bender were very, very nice. But, unit 703 was terrible. It needs some updates: there is a hole in the laundry room door, a crack in the master bedroom door, the floors were filthy. Our feet were black from walking on the floor. The tub was gross and needs to be replaced, the sliding door in the master bath fell off of its' hinges. The comforter needed to be sent back for cleaning because it was dirty, the stove was dirty. It is too bad because it is a great location, with a beautiful view. This unit needs some attention.

Great location but not a great overall experience
A guest from Little Rock, AR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
The Caribbean was on the beach with balconies that overlooked the water! However, the overall condo experience left a lot to be desired. The floors were slippery & sticky when we arrived and we had to asked that they be re cleaned. The pull out sofa bed was broken, the A/C was broken and took all day to fix and the elevator broke twice, which was a major drag since we were on the 7th floor! I wouldn't stay here again!

Get a decent TV, the one in the condo living room is lousy. Put in a few throw rugs, at least one on each side of the bed in the bedroom. Had to carry out items individually, no transport cart was available at 9:30 AM and none could be located.

Keeping It Clean
A guest from Gilmore, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012
I was very fortunate to reserve such a great spot at the last minute. My family and I had a great time. The only complaints I have is that the condo was not very clean considering the amount we are charged for the cleaning fee. I also think that there needs to be some kind of walkthrough put into place. I took a few pictures of some things that were broken or destroyed that I did not want to be charged for.

Stayed for 29 days in February, 2012
This was our 4th year at Gulf Shores and our 2nd one in this property. Our stay was for a month. It is comfortable and great site on the beach. The property is in need of attention - not cleaned properly and the cookware is very poor. The plumbing need work (drains run slow) and the TV and VCR needs upgrading. No remote for the VCR/DVD - had to get down on our hands and knees to play (at 70+ that is not easy to do. Overall a nice place just need some TLC and updating.

a working shower and toilet?
Earl D. from Loveland, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 1 days in August, 2011
We were very happy to get this room on the beach. Check-in with Bender was very professional and accomodating. The Caribbean was very nice and clean. Around 10 PM we found the shower wasn't draining ant the toilet worked when it wanted. I called security and reported it. They left message with plumber who did not get back to me until 8 AM.Said he would contact Bender for work order and could be there around 2 or 3 PM. I told him that I would be checked out by then and my family could have slept in the car just as well. When I checked out with Bender I advised them of this along with blood stained pillows, broken picture frame in the closet and picture that fell off wall when my wife bumped it with her head in the closet 1/2bath. Nails were very loose. Luckily it did not land on her foot. Bender agent asked me if there was anything else I replied "Isn't that enough!" I had a better stay in a $35 hotel on the way down. I paid over $100 cleaning fee and had to take out the trash and make sure the dishes I didn't use were clean and put away. WHY?? She said manager would get back with me wich has NOT happened yet. Will it ever????

Very nice - could use a few fixes
Erin S. from Moody, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011
The condo itself was great, very clean. However, the owner needs to put some type of window covering up in the bedroom. There is a patio light in the breezeway that shines right into the unit making it very difficult to sleep in that bedroom - spent a few nights on the sofa! Other than that the only flaws we found were that the pool was extremely dirty - perhaps an issue with the filter and the elevator was extremely slow - a lot slower than would be expected for a unit with only 8 floors - caused a wee bit of the relaxation of the trip to disappear! Overall it was a great condo in a great location and we will definitely return in the future.

Unit 703
A guest from Lafayettte, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011
Had a nice time, some things need to be looked into in that unit. The burners on the stove are not fitted properly and the curtain rod above the door in the living area is coming off the wall - one needs to be very careful pulling it back - it may fall off the wall completely. Otherwise, it was a nice place for just the two of us.

condo problems
Judy M. from Alandale, MI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 24 days in February, 2011
Condition of condo on arrivalSmell of urine in bathroom. Had to by cleaner and work on itmyself. Something you don't like doing, especially on vacation. Floors and baseboards very dirty. The second week we were there a tenant next door, 702was smoking soy much I had to leave during the day. I could hardly breathe. I am a cancer survivor and it was the worstweek I have ever had on vacation because of it. He kept smoking on the deck as well so we could not even sit on the deck.

We have used Bender Realty the last 6 times that we have vacationed in Gulf Shores. The prices are great, and the condos are much better than a stuffy hotel room! I would highly recommend the Caribbean facility... outdoor and indoor pool, fitness room, and that breathtaking view of the Gulf. I hope that those looking for a relaxing get away will consider the Gulf Shores area, despite the oil...you can still enjoy the Gulf sights and sounds!

Teri C. from Northport, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2010
The staff was nice and helpful, the unit was clean and was what I was expecting. The only complaint's that I really have are about the beds, I don't normally complain about these type of things but if the floor was carpeted I probably would've rather slept on the floor. The bunk beds are a great idea and we would have used them more if the top one had a rail. My 6 year old fell out of the top bunk twice I am just glad that we had the foresight to lay pillows in the floor in the hallway on the off chance that he fell out of the bed. A rail could really be very very useful. We enjoyed are stay all and all and will return.

Nothing serious but the elevator was a little slow, we had to park across the street once because of a lack of parking spaces, and it would be better if checkout time was at 11am instead of 10am. None of these issues would keep us from coming back.

Great Property & Location - Just a few things to keep in mind
A guest from Dallas, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2009
The Caribbean 703 condo was definitely a place I would recommend to others. The view and location are both superb. The condo is kept up very nicely and is very cutely decorated. It was nice to have the extra half bath in the living area and the kitchen had ample counter space and fairly nice appliances for cooking. We really enjoyed having a washer/dryer which we used regularly. We were a bit disappointed that the bedroom is in the back of the condo so you do not have a view of the ocean from the bedroom. We like to hear the waves crashing as we sleep, very peaceful. There is a pull out couch though in the living room by the balcony and I think many of the condos are designed this way, so it wasn't a big deal. There are a few things that you should be aware of before traveling out there. I believe this is the case in most condos but the only toiletries / cleaning supplies they provide are 1 bar of soap in each bathroom, 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, and 1 small packet of dishwasher soap. Be prepared with all of your own toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, etc.) as well as laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, kitchen sponge & dish soap, extra toilet paper, paper towels and anything to clean up after any kitchen messes. There is a walmart, and many shops and restaurants close by though so everything you could need is near. The only other real problem we had with our stay was that the elevator was out of order 3 of the 5 nights we stayed. 7 flights of stairs is a lot. It was always fixed by morning but it did discourage us from leaving our condo at night. All in all though great condo, great location, fantastic vacation!

The floors were filthy when we checked in. The management sent someone over immediately upon hearing my complaint. The blankets/bedspreads in the unit were also grungy looking. There's no railing on the top bunk bed so we didn't feel safe using it. The patio furniture on the balcony was gross. I wouldn't stay in this particular unit again just because it felt so unclean, but I would definitely use Bender Realty again.

The place was very nice, but the unit looked like it had not been cleaned. There was dirt everywhere. There was even dish powder left in the dishwasher. The reason for that was that the dishwasher didn't work. We also found a receipt from last year lying in the floor, more evidence that the cleaning crew didn't do a very good job. I told the office upon leaving and they were very nice, and said if I would have told them when I arrived they would have taken care of it, but I am just not comfortable with someone returning to my room after I have complained. Other than that the condo. was beautiful and well maintained. The pool and gym areas were very nice as well.

A guest from Hayden, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2008
We were impressed with the location, amenities, and cleanliness of the building itself but were not very happy with the unit. Room was dirty under the beds and furniture. We have a 1 yr old so we are always fishing his toys out from under furniture. It was filthy. There were only two trash bags in the unit. For the lentgh of our stay, that didn't cut it. There was soap and shampoo in the shower but there was no soap, paper towels, or anything to clean with in the kitchen. Just one small pack of soap for the dishwasher. Had to spend another $30 bucks for cleaning supplies at the local store. These items were furnished at other condos we have stayed in. Unit needs to be updated badly with new furniture and maybe some fresh paint. We have stayed at other condos in the area before and have been very pleased. You won't get much "bang for your buck" with this one. Not worth the money we paid. However, the Bender Realty staff were very nice. Office was easy to find and checking in and out was a breeze.

Pleasant Stay
Glenn P. from Helena, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008
Stayed in a one bedroom, 1.5 bath condo. Property was well maintained (no suprises in the condo, clean pool area, clean beach); the only reason I gave it a 4 out 5 stars for cleanliness is because the floors in the condo are tile so your bare feet got dirty if the floor was not cleaned everyday (keep some handi-wipes available). Excellent view of the gulf and the location is centrally located to all of the restuarants and activities. The staff at Bender Realty were very friendly and helpful. The only real complaint I had with the property was that there were no flags close by to indicate the status of the beach condition.

Stayed for 7 days in July, 2007
The property managers were great. We had a late arrival and there was a reservation error but they came to the office and immediatly got us into our unit. They were also very prompt to address the housekeeping issues we brought to their attention. Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate with the weather this particular week but that happens sometimes. If the weather had been cooperative and we had avoided some illness it would have been a wonderful week. Gulf Shores is laid back and the seafood is wonderful.
