Peg N. from Newburgh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in November, 2016 Great weather, lovely condo, and great Bender staff! Although we had some laundry issues, Jenny and the Bender staff worked with the owner and a new washer and dryer were installed during our visit. 15B is a beautiful condo! We have been coming to the Sandpiper for over 18 years and meet the nicest folks. This year we invited our neighbors to join us for Thanksgiving dinner with our family.
Vickie M. from Grand Rivers, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in September, 2016 As always we enjoyed are stay at Sandpiper. We loved 15B it was really nice. The staff at Bender are the best!!!!!
A guest from Springfield, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Past stays at the Sandpiper were nearly ruined by large family reunion groups that were disrespectful, noisy and dominated the pool and the barbeque area. But mid-June was quiet and awesome. Other guests were friendly and made our stay much more enjoyable. The condo is clean and very nicely furnished and equipped. The balcony arrangement is so much better for getting together with other families than others condos where security and privacy is a priority. Perfect place if you are in a group of five or six families, as long as you are considerate of everyone else and hold the noise down.
A guest from Buchanan, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 We had a great time, the condo was updated with beautiful furnishings. The pool is right outside your door and the beach is steps away. The views of the beach are awesome from the balcony. The only complaint we had was the mattresses in the condo are very worn out. I slept in every bed in the place and was miserable when I woke up. We all wound up taking turns sleeping on the sofa because it was way better than the beds. Other than that, we had a wonderful time and will return.
A guest from Baton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 We have stayed at Sandpiper several times before and really enjoy the smaller, low key feel this complex has versus the typical "Hi-rise" condo. Unit 15B has been fully updated and was one of the nicer units I have stayed in at Sandpiper. Will definitely request 15B on my next stay.
Douglas T. from Oregon, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 29 days in February, 2016 Most enjoyable place to spent the winter. Lots to do and great location to stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We're so glad you enjoyed your winter in Gulf Shores! Sandpiper 15B is a lovely condo in a people-friendly atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you next year!
Douglas T. from Oregon, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2016 Very unusual condo that is filled with friendly guests. The way it is built, you walk past anyone sitting outside on deck drinking coffee to watch sunrise or adult beverages to watch sunsets. Wonderful people
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so glad you are enjoying your winter vacation in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper is certainly unique in that guests can enjoy each other's company from the wraparound balcony, and unit 15B is lovely with its recent updates. We are excited that you have already re booked for next year!
A guest from Grand Rivers, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2015 We really enjoyed our stay in 15B. The condo was updated and had everything we needed. We always enjoy staying at the Sandpiper and seeing the friendly staff at Bender Realty.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. It is always good to see you, and we're glad you enjoyed your recent stay. Sandpiper 15B is a lovely, updated condo with an excellent view of the Gulf. We look forward to your next visit here on the Gulf Coast!
Dawn R. from Pekin, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2015 As a family, we had rented at the Sandpiper for several years as our children grew up. The family atmosphere is what always drew us back to the Sandpiper. This was our first experience at this time of year, and no regrets in returning for Thnaksgivng! Our children are grown now, but still enjoy the quiet, family environment. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The condo was updated nicely and we were very comfortable. The combination locks are so convenient, and makes check in and check out easy. There will be no hesitation in contacting Bender for renting at the Sandpiper again. Glad to be back there again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper is a terrific, family place to stay, no matter what time of year. Don't forget to call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!
Daron G. from Milton, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 Always clean fun place to go been going here every other year since 1985
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper 15B is a terrific unit with lovely updates. Be sure to call Bender Realty when you are ready to book a future vacation on the Gulf Coast!
Jilletta W. from Tennyson, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 Is a very nice place. Great weather, food and people were very nice. Easy to get around to places. Condo complex was very nice as well. Easy access to beach and loved the pool.
Nicole H. from Gentry, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 This was our favorite condo we've stayed in at Gulf Shores! It's beautiful and very clean! We'll definitely stay here again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so glad you enjoyed your Gulf Shores vacation. Sandpiper 15B is a very nice condo, with lovely pool, garden, and BBQ areas. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in booking your future Gulf Coast getaway!
A guest from Springfield, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 We go every year with five other families and like the size and scale of the Sandpiper with its proximity to the beach, but the Potter reunion makes it impossible to get near the pool or bar-b-q area. They take over the place and are so loud, you can't enjoy your stay. Never go in mid-July.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. Sandpiper is indeed a great property with a lovely pool and BBQ area and easy beach access. We are open year-round, so please give us a call when you determine the best dates for you and your friends.
A guest from Boerne, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 This was the second time staying at the Sandpiper, but the first time in 15B. The complex was very clean and well maintained. The unit had been recently renovated with new stainless steel appliances, paint, tile flooring, and an ample supply of pots, pans, dishes, flatware, etc. The unit was one of the closest to the beach and just above the pool. I definitely recommend this unit as well as the Sandpiper, which was conveniently located to shopping and restaurants.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation in Gulf Shores. Sandpiper 15B is indeed a lovely condo with so many wonderful amenities. Please remember Bender Realty when you plan a return to the Gulf Coast!
LeAnn S. from Russellville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 I have been a fan of the Sandpiper for several years now. I have done both family vacations and girl trips to the Sandpiper. I have never been disappointed! With the small size of the complex it gives a more right at home feel. Can't say enough good things about it! Love!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We're so pleased you had another great Sandpiper vacation. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready for more of that "at home" Sandpiper feel!
Charles B. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2015 Other than two to three days of rain off and on, it was a relaxing week, and the breezes from the Gulf were great. The unit was very nice and roomy. The Bender staff were cordial and helpful. This was our first visit to Gulf Shores. We plan on coming back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so glad you had such a lovely first experience in Gulf Shores! Please call Bender Realty when you begin planning a return trip to the Gulf Coast, and we will be happy to assist you.
Daniel G. from St.Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2015 A very nice place; wish we could live there. Close to beach and the pool is nice.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in Sandpiper. Unit 15B has had some amazing updates, and being close to the pool and beach is a definite plus. Keep Bender Realty in mind when you start making plans for a future visit!
Susan C. from Shepherdsville, Shepherdsville recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 The condo is exceptionally nice and includes all the comforts of home. The location is excellent, as we were close to great restaurants and attractions. Unfortunately, people who checked in in the middle of the night decided to party from 3-5 am and continued to be narcissistically loud wherever they were...on their deck area and at the pool. People who checked in above our unit (15b) stayed up all night and stomped around as though they were pacing and dragging things from room to room. It was bizarre!
David E. from Jeffersonville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 I was completely satisfied with my experience at The Sandpiper. The unit was extremely clean and maintained and I appreciated the property's closeness to the beach.
David H. from Ballwin, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The location of the condo was excellent and had the option of the pool or the beach. When we checked into the condo, we foiund that several dishes were dirty and some plates still had macaroni and cheese on them. Needless to say we had to wash all of the dishes to ensure they were clean. The furniture in the unit was not comfortable and very out of date. The unit seemed small for the 2 of us and I couldn't imagine having 6 people in that unit.
Dennis D. from St Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2014 love the Sandpiper....have been going there for over 10 years....Bender staff is always awesome....would not stay in 15b again...not near as nice as many of the other units we have stayed in....very dated and somewhat run down in comparison...carpet needs to go
Susan S. from Arnold, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2014 Have stayed at this complex before but not the same unit as the first. Disapointed in cleaning to pay 100.oo and have black in the bottom of the showers and smudges all over mirrors and dirty dishes in dishwasher and toilets had a bandaid stuck in it with a toilet ring already there is really not a great thing to see.. No I didnt call managaement because didnt feel like waiting for someone to show up While doing shopping I picked up a bottle of cleaner and just did it myself. Also Management might want to consider keeping kids on lower floors the people above us had kids running thru out there condo all night and kept waking us up. Friends in 3 other units also agreed.. Otherwise love the location of complex but will not stay in this unit again had issues with stove and refrig also
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. Thank you for your comments and concerns. This unit has recently changed ownership and the new owners are going to completely redo the unit this fall. I am sure it will be very nice and so you might want to check it out for your return visit(s) in the future.
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Great location, just a short walk to the beach. The pool and surrounding area is clean and well maintained. Our condo was very comfortable and well furnished. Wonderful!
John/Linda M. from Springfield, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Great facility at a good price. The balcony configuration is good for multiple families to gather and have fun, but also have a private room. But while we were there a group of about fifteen families partied together night and day, playing loud music and making so much noise, we could not enjoy our stay. Security refused to do anything until 10:00 pm.
A guest from South Lake, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We had a wonderful time at the Sandpiper. Our family rented 5 condos for a reunion. Overall, it was a wonderful week! The beach was beautiful, the pool and common areas were well maintained, and it was really fun. I would like to point out that our unit, 15B, seemed to be less updated than most of the others that our family rented. The carpet is dated, the water heater only had enough water for two showers at any given time, and there was less seating in the common area of the condo than other condos had. It would be a great condo if it were spruced up like some of the rest. We loved the Sandpiper, though, and we will definitely return some day!
A guest from Sewanee, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 We have reserved our beach vacation condo through Bender Realty for years. This year I discovered that cancellation is now handled through an insurance company with a hefty extra charge and vague guarantees. I will be looking for a vacation stay with a different policy next time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. Cancellations less than 30 days prior to arrival are non-refundable, which is a common industry wide policy. However, to protect your deposits, vacation rental protection insurance is available through a 3rd party provider. The travel insurance is also optional. We certainly appreciate and value your patronage and when you check around with other vacation rental companies and you realize that this a common policy, we hope that we will have the opportunity to provide you with a great experience at the beach once again.
Stephen H. from Bloomfield, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 If you are wanting a place right on the beach, then this is the place. I personally thought the cleaning fee was a bit high for no more than what has to be done, but not being from that area, I really have no idea what the cleaning rates are. Overall, we had a great time and the condo was clean and right on the beach, so I would recommend this rental. The ladies that I spoke with at Bender Realty were very polite and professional and told us to report any problems that we had. (We had none).
A guest from Millington, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this establishment to a friend. I would have liked a bigger kithen to work in. Overall ver pleased
A guest from Bristol, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We have stayed in this unit for several years and like it very much. I do wish they would update some. Sandpiper is a very nice complex and well run.
A guest from Terrehaut, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We had fun, and Bender Realty is professional and friendly. However the toilet didn't flush properly and the bath did not drain well
A guest from Berlin, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2013 We had come down the past 9 years on spring break with our grown children and grandchildren. This year we tried the month of Feb.alone; a very different experience but we absolutely loved it even though it was cooler. We had morning sun but would have liked the afternoon sunny side. What a fabulous way to spend the winter and we hope to add on months as the years go by. Sandpiper would always be our choice with the way the complex is designed and Bender Realty giving such a personal touch.
Brenda P. from Desota, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in October, 2012 We had a great time at The Sandpiper. Our unit needed a few updates, but overall, the experience and the location was fantastic. The pool was wonderful and refreshing and the beach at our front door was great. I would like to give a personal "thank you" to the owners of the unit next to us...they were very gracious and helpful to us when we needed directions to an urgent care facility.
Andy K. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2012 This is the 2nd year we have stayed at the Sandpiper. Very much enjoy the size of the complex and proximity to the beach and center of town.
Don F. from Vail, CO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 The location was great as was the staff. However, the toilets bubble up and frequently splash dirty water on the seat and floor. The furniture in the living area is in poor condition - cushions on the sofa sink below the rim and the chair is hard and uncomfortable from years of use. It badly needs updating and repair.
Gulf Shores can`t wait till next year .. see ya then ........
Richard P. from Maysville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 15B was in general a nice stay but needs a few updates , don`t buy any Ice Cream Freezer doesn`t work very well takes all day to get enough ice from Ice Maker for a glass full , Fixtures in bathrooms need updated also.. but other than that had a great stay ...
James H. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 It was 22 years ago that we last stayed at Sandpiper and we still find it very nice and the local restaurants wonderful. Our condo was very clean and neat but the beds were worn out as were the couches.
Brian G. from Mitchell, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 We, once again, had a great stay at Sandpiper. We came with 4 small children, ages 7,6,5 and 4. They had a great time in the pool and on the beach. This is such a family oriented place to stay with children. Wonderful time was had by all.
MARTY H. from LOUISVILLE, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 Wonderfull vacation stay. We brought a couple who had never been before. They were very impressed and want to come again and recommend to other of their family.
Betty H. from Campbellsville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 Everything was as shown in video. We had an issue with the TV's, but everyone at Bender Realty were extremely helpful in solving the problem.. Would recommend property to anyone planning a stay in Gulf Shores.
A guest from Daphne, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2011 Sandpiper is great place, in a great location. 15-B could use a little updating but we didn't spend much time inside anyway.Will definitely stay again but possibly in another unit. Pool, grilling area and Beach were clean. We enjoyed it.
A guest from Oregon, Wisconsin does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 I would recommend SandPiper to anybody. However, I would not recommend 15B - it seems to be outdated in a lot of areas, carpeting, plumbing, laundry, etc.
A guest from Junction City, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 The iron was missing from the room and the room had no broom in it. The swimming pool needs to be updated and maintained better. Overall, we were verypleased with our experience.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. The swimming pool was repainted this spring - it looks great!
Roxann E. from Columbus, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 We only had a three night stay, but it was an enjoyable one. The only part I thought could have been better was the price. The price seemed high with the conditions of the beach and the oil. Swimming and playing in the ocean was completely out, and we ruined our beach shoes the first day out because of the oil. Overall, the trip was good, the condo was very satisfactory.
A guest from LaGrange, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 We loved our vacation at The Sandpiper. Our family meets there every year and rent multiple condos. It is family friendly with the connecting decks. The condition of the Sandpiper as a whole is very good. I would have given more stars on property's general condition, but 15B needs some updates. Electronics in the main room are old and outdated. A 19-20" old TV just doesn't make sense with flat screens so cheap now. Needs carpet replaced or tile put down as other condos have. Bedding was good, but could use new comforters. Could use a stand or shelves in the bathrooms. Unit was clean and Management is very nice and willing to help with any concern. You can feel the southern hospitality within the Bender office. They are very nice people and want your vacation to be great. The oil spill contamination of Gulf Shores was way over blown by the media. Not to say there was no oil, just not near as bad as being reported. We had a few days of very small oil droplets. We've had a lot more trouble with jelly fish in the past. Beach was great with workers out there every day looking for debris. Beach was cleaner than normal! The silver lining in the cloud was... with so many people staying away, it was a lot less crowded :) I would recommend coming down to Gulf shores and specifically making your stay at The Sandpiper.
A guest from Zeeland, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2010 We loved our time at the Sandpiper. Great location, beach, pool, safe, incredible view, and you can hear the ocean all the time. Wish we would have brought our bikes. Played beach volleyball, basketball, tennis, swam and walked the beach every day. This is a great, economical stay for a family.
A guest from Springfield, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 Our family have come year after year to Sandpiper. We have stayed in various condos. 15B was ok but very poorly stocked with kitchen supplies. There was only 4 forks and just a couple sharp (enough to cut butter) knives. Also, there needed to be some cookie sheets and other baking pans, 9x13, jelly roll size pan, etc. Also, both toilets ran continuously and were slow to flush. And the stackable w/d needs to be replaced, esp. the washer. The lid stuck back constantly. Finally, this is for the general facility. There needs to be more deck chairs outside each condo, at least 4 per condo. Some had 1 and some had 4-5! We will be back next year but are already booked for 7B hoping that condo will be more updated.
Barbara B. from Menasha, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2009 The pool area could have been cleaner,found chair in pool,crab,cans; did not clean daily as in past, never saw anyone clean it. Nice and warm though. Property had more litter around than at past stays. Room could have been cleaner too. Did not see security staff at any time.
john r. from Old Monroe, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2009 I read that a few Sandpiper units had older bedding, furniture damaged, outdated kitchens, etc., so I was a little leery of renting at Sandpiper. I was pleasantly surprised with 15B. The furniture and bedding was newer (not lumpy), the carpets were newer and clean, the kitchen was newer and clean. The one single complaint was that not a single remote control worked on any TV. I don't know if batteries needed to be changed or the proper remotes were not there, but we didn't care too much. We were on vacation, not there to watch TV!
A guest from Bartlett, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2008 we have stayed here several times and are always happy. condo was neat and clean. comfy kingsize bed. kitchen needs new blender. tried several restraunts; desoto's kitchen, bahama bobs and big o's all had great seafood. the beach was clean and so was the water.
A guest from Bristol, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2008 i do not understand why people must pay for a parking pass. you are paying for the condo and you need a car to get th gulf shores.
A guest from Columbus, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2008 We had stayed at the Sandpiper a few times when our kids were growing up, and now took our 25 year old son with us to play golf with my husband. We enjoyed our stay at Sandpiper this time just as much as before. The units had really been kept up well. We definitely will be back again!
A guest from Hopkinsville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2008 Seven guys on an annual spring golf trip. Enjoyable as usual. Accomodations were fine and we were well taken care of by Bender Realty.
Sharon S. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2007 The Sandpiper is a great place to stay. With only 3 floors it is great for families. The pool area is fantastic. Close to the beach. We would definitely return for another vacation.
Patricia V. from Marrero, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2007 We loved our stay.We would definitely stay again. The only problem was the elevator broke and the pool had a problem and was shut down.
Elizabeth R. from Fountaintown, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2007 We have stayed at Sand Piper several times. It has always been a great experience. Would be nice if all the bedrooms has tv's in them. Other than that, everything else was wonderful.
Richard B. from Belvidere, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2007 Have stayed at the Sandpiper several times and love it...except for the last time when kids from the beach come up and used the pool all the time. Thats my only complaint.
