Great Stay overall
robert h. from woodstock, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 We've had great overall experiences with Bender over the past 12 years, but had one issue with this particular unit (Driftwood 1D). The unit was definitely not to out liking as far as cleanliness. Mold and mildew on ceilings in both bathrooms. Mold and mildew in hvac vents. Base boards had collected dust and grime. Grill area's were not cleaned daily and charcoal and ash had built up substantially with nowhere to empty.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. Thank you for your input; we truly value your repeat patronage. We regret that our housekeeping was not up to standards. Please be assured that we consider this unacceptable and apologize for your inconvenience. We did check for mold in the unit, but did not in fact find any. We also called the management company for Driftwood Towers and informed them about the BBQ grills. Again, thank you for your comments, and please call Bender Realty when you are ready for your next trip to the Gulf Coast!
A guest from powder springs, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Rental was just as described in the listing. We had an amazing week, with room for everyone and everything. The condo is well equipped and has a great view. Location is great.
David S. from Manheim, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in October, 2015 We stayed at the Driftwood condos in unit 1D from the middle of October thru the middle of November. The unit was well kept although the furniture needs an update. A couple of thoughts on this particular unit. 1. There needs to be drapes on the bedroom windows as outside lights of a night might keep some from sleeping. 2. This unit is directly over the pool so depending on the time of year, there could be some noise from that area. 3. During our stay, one of the elevators was not operational (I assume that will be fixed in the future). Overall, this was an ideal location in Gulf Shores will a short distance to the beach. Good lighting in the parking lot (although you are allowed only one auto and have to pay for an additional vehicle).
Sara O. from Quinton, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 We had a blast! The condo was very clean, affordable, cozy, nice, peaceful & equipped with everything we needed! We will be back....great location! If I could change one thing it would be the big light at the pool, it blocked your view of the beach & ocean at night, but it would not keep me from renting this condo again! Thanks to everyone for a wonderful stay! Happy snorkeling & beachcombing!
A guest from Roanoke, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 Where to begin??? This unit is exactly what I envisioned when taking a beach vacation. Clean, all the appliances worked wonderfully, I mean literally you walk down a flight of stairs passed the pool and viola you're on the beach! The pool was an added bonus for the young ones. The only knock was the master bedroom seemed to be the warmest room in the unit otherwise fantastic property to rent for a beach getaway!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so pleased that you had such a great vacation in Gulf Shores. Driftwood Towers 1D is a great unit, close to the beach and local restaurants. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!
A guest from Greenfield, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 come to gulf shores every other year. almost always stay at driftwood towers and only once didn't stay in 1D. we love driftwood...not too big, fairly reasonable, and bender realty is the best to work with. had a great time as always.
A guest from New York, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 First time at Gulf Shores and amazing time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so glad you enjoyed your first visit to Gulf Shores and at Driftwood Towers. Please call Bender Realty when you begin making plans for your next visit to the Gulf Coast!
A guest from benton, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 We had a great time at the beach this year. Loved the condo. The only suggestion I have for owners is to put thick curtains up on window in master room. Maybe some on door leading to deck in master room also. You should also consider taller chairs on deck. Thank you for a great week. We would live at the beach if we could.
Robert H. from Woodstock, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Our stay at Driftwood was good. Been staying in Gulf Shores area for last 14 years in a row at various condos. Driftwood was very enjoyable. The only two issues that we have not experienced at our other locations that we did not like were....1. the restroom at the pool level was not open. this SCARES me as many small kids and toddlers were staying as well as adults drinking beer in pool and NOT getting out for hours. 2. Many items were left at the pool every night and NOT picked up by the pool maintenance the next morning. Towels, goggles, floats, beach balls, cans, noodles, tubes, all left by guest at pool side and never cleaned up in the morning when pool maintenance was cleaning pool. VERY unsightly. Other condos that we have stayed at have a rule, you leave it out overnight,,,, it will be thrown away in the morning.
A guest from COLUMBIA, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 only problem during our stay was with the code# for the pool gates. At one time neither gate was working or working sporadically. other than that the stay was great
Paul P. from Conyers, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 of course best beach best water best restaurants real nice pool plenty of room great tv"s definitely coming back and will call benders realty
Melissa H. from Columbus, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 I cant think of a better place that I could have taken my family. The townhouse had a beautiful ocean view and was very clean! The staff was great at check in and check out! you could not ask for nicer people! This was the first vacation that my husband and I have ever been able to take our three children on so this was very worth the wait! My God bless all of the great people that made the vacation at Gulf Shores a wonderful time! The Harper Family!!:)))
Pam W. from Little Rock, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 Bender Realty did an outstanding job of finding me a condo to take my "senior Citizen" parents!The view from the living room was perfect for my mother to sit and look out. The DVD player wouldn't work and it was taken care of immediately by calling the office. The office staff is the best(friendly,helpful,courteous). They make you feel as if you are the only client. I wish I could go to the beach more often but when I can afford it again, I will call Bender to pick me a place!
Debbie S. from Richmond, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2013 The condo had everything we needed and the management company was the best!!! We are looking forward to returning next year but staying longer!!!!
Willard K. from Ashville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 It was a nice place to stay, not too crowded, the pool was big, rooms was nice. The only complaint is they was redoing the side walk and it was very noisy and inconvenient while trying to go in/out. If only we would have know about the remodeling before hand. Other than that, it was a nice place to stay and we had a great time!!
Teresa F. from Vance, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We stayed at the Driftwood unit 1D for a week. From the time I opened the door I knew this was not going to be good. We looked the place over and soon discovered that it was in a mess. The tubs had hair and a black greasy sunstance in them, as well as the bathroom sinks. The entire unit has not been dusted in forever. The master baths ceing was molded mildew where the shower head comes out of the ceiling and was about to fall in. The shower curtains were also molded and mildewed. The throw ruga were full of sand and lint, the towels looked dingy and smelled nasty, the sheets were not changed before we arrived. The refrigerator was left with dried food in it and sticky looking liquids that were everywhere. I emailed the office and they apologized and told me someone would be there at 1:00 the next day if we were going to be there. They came while we were gone and left a shower liner and clean linens, but they didn't clean anything, they wasnt even supposed to be in there without us there. We showered with our flip flops on. We went out and bought a lot of cleaning supplies so we could make it while we were there. We left the place cleaner than we found it and I still have not received my $249.00 deposit back. The place needs to be remodeled and cleaned from top to bottom. It is pretty outdated too. It looked a lot better in the pictures. I paid way too much for this condo so therefore I wouldn't stay there again, ever and Iwwouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. You have definitely lost a customerWe don't live in filth at home and I am not going to pay money to do it on vacation. Thanks, Teresa Frost
A guest from Crestview Hills, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Great stay, great weather. Cleanliness was acceptable, however for the amount of the cleaning fee being paid, it should have been a little better.
Steve K. from Covington, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 Great visit. As always the Driftwood Towers is an awesome place to stay when visiting Gulf Shores.No surprises with the rental unit, everything was up to our expectations. And the ladies atBender Realty are always so nice and helpful, they are a joy to work with. I would highlyrecommend Bender Realty and the Driftwood Towers.
A guest from Greensboro, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Nice condo in a great location for us. Not too far off Hwy 59 on the beach. Kitchen equipment could have been newer. Some of the pans were old and the tea kettle was rusty inside. While not necessary to provide a tea kettle if you do have one make sure it's useable. Notice about dishes saying not to use certain ones in microwave or dishwasher. In this day and age the condos should have dishes that can be used in dishwasher and microwave. All in all though, a nice condo.
A guest from Broussard, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 We had a very nice stay. Condo was spacious and clean. Good location. Bender Realty personnel very friendly and professional. Had a few loud people staying at the complex, but had nothing to do with the complex itself. Great stay!
A guest from MOrse, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2009 there were holes cut out in the walls with wires exposed, the television would not work on many occassions, we called managament and a tech was swnt with the verdict being a short in the wire, but this went on throughout our stay. otherwise we enjoyed and will return next year
Robert H. from Woodstock, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2008 we stayed in this very same unit last year and had a wonderfull experience. This time around, we were a little dissapointed. we had to clean the room when we first arrived. (sink had crumbs, dishwasher was not emptied, one shower has sand in it).
A guest from Woodstock, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2007 We've stayed in Gulf Shoars for the last 6 years. last year was our firts at Driftwood. We will definately be back!!!
