Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Great location on the beach!... Condo displayed lots of signs of being well used and in need of renovation with updates. Title Floor and Couches Very Dirty! Had a issue with the AC Unit with uncontrollable dripping (day&night)all of the 4 days while we were there. Bender Realty sent the repair service out to the condo multiple times with no results during our stay. Disappointing the issue wasn't identified before they rent out the owner's condo.
Caribbean Condominium stay in Gulf Shores from June 8 - 12, 2016
George M. from Kenner, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2016 The vacation was great since I was able to go Deep Sea Fishing for Red Snappers, play Golf, go on the beach some and eat at some good restaurants. We were also able to hear a good band at the Flora-Bama with friends from Louisiana.When we arrived at the property in Unit 401, the air conditioning was not working. We called the Reality office and the had to get Roberts A/C to replace a fan motor on the roof. The furniture was chipped up, the curtains were ugly and the bed skirts were on the wrong beds. The bed cover in the master bedroom should be replaced with a newer one and there were no curtains in that room.The food rack on the refrigerator inside door fell off when we opened it and the handle was loose.The knobs on the cabinets were different an chipped.The tub in the master bedroom needed to be recauked and the paint was chipped behind it.The TV in the living room was way too small for the console.The sliding door on the master bedroom was off its track for the back door.The steam room was also out of order.Also, the price for this unit was way too high for it's condition. This should have been priced around $185/night at most.
Keith L. from Wyoming, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 Everyone is very friendly.

A guest from Decatur, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2016 Location is key to this condo. Right on the beach with a wonderful pool. Nothing fancy here just straight forward two bedroom two bath condo. Needs some updating and a good cleaning. Needs to be checked by staff if sits for awhile as the floors had sand on them and the toilets were stained with rust. Funny smell as you entered the condo made me wonder what was being stored in the owners closet. Actually smelled like old smoke. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Will rent again due to location and staff.

A guest from Gardendale, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in November, 2015 We stayed a month and enjoyed the condo very much. It was well furnished, the beds were very comfortable and the view was beautiful.The best part was being able to have our sweet little furbaby with us. The only negative I can think of was poor quality of the balcony chairs, plus there was not a table on the balcony. A quick trip to WalMart solved that - but we took the table and chairs with us when we left.The ladies at Bender were very, very helpful and nice. We are looking forward to staying again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores.

Kathy D. from Savannah, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 My daughter and I took a much needed long 4 day weekend to Gulf Shores with our 2 pets, a small yorkie and shiztuh. Caribbean 401 was PERFECT for us. The condo was ready upon our arrival at 2:15 that Thursday afternoon. Check-in was quick and the staff at Bender were very helpful with area information, guidebooks and coupons. This condo came with reserved covered parking and this particular unit had one RIGHT BY THE elevator. Very handy. The condo was clean. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was adequately stocked. ( Bring your own corkscrew though ) The master bathroom garden tub was amazing !! And double vanities. Grounds and pool area was clean. Beach access was easy and perfect. The beach chair service staff were awesome!! $30 for two chairs and they come by several times a day to reposition the umbrella for you, if you wish. We will definitely check to see if this unit is available the next time we visit Gulf Shores.

A guest from Gordo, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Had great time with family, had other family members rent two other units. Bender Realty is always great to rent from, super friendly, good rental price. Only thing unit needed good sweeping and mopping of floors and sheets for bed did not fit, would not stay on mattresses in either bedroom. Other than those issues great rental
A guest from Savoy, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2015 It was very nice except the furniture was extremely uncomfortable in the living room. Also the floor could've been cleaner. My white slippers were dark gray by the end of the month. The view was amazing. Bender Realty was very accommodating. They could not have been nicer. A big thank you to them.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The view is indeed amazing from a Caribbean balcony. We regret that you had a housekeeping issue and encourage you to call us should this occur in the future. Please keep Bender Realty in mind when you begin to plan your next trip to the Gulf Coast!
Carol S. from Morgan City, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 We had a wonderful time. Condo was very well maintained and the view was awesome. The pool and beach was everything you could ask for!
Susan S. from Burleson, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Location was great! Property was pretty well maintained and had very adequate amenities. Some of the furnishings could stand to be replaced. Indoor pool was great for the infants. They were able to enjoy the water and not have to be out in the sun. We would recommend this property and will probably return ourselves.
A guest from Jackson, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 My wife and I, along with her father, enjoyed a quick trip to Gulf Shores over Memorial Day Weekend. We arrived late, but Bender Realty made it easy to check in after-hours. We loved the location of the Caribbean condo, right on the beach and close to everything off the beach. The rooms were nice and everything was clean. Don't expect it to be a five-star accommodation, but it was definitely comfortable for us. I would recommend staying here and using Bender Realty for your booking.
A guest from Kokomo, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 Beautiful located on the beach in gulf shores, this condo had almost everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. The pool area was well maintained. The only negatives are the furniture was not well maintained. The recliner was broken and the couch had stains and holes. I did wish there were more rugs in the condo as the tile floor was cold on little feet. There was sand everywhere before we ever got to the beach. Once we swept up that was not a problem. Over all the condo was excellent and not far from great restaurants and grocery stores. We were there over spring break and while it was busy the beach was not crowded and there weren't a lot of crazy college kids everywhere which was great. At only 3 hours from New Orleans, it's a great home base to explore the gulf coast!
A guest from Heath, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2013 We have rented from Bender for all of our trips to Gulf Shores and been very satified, however this property was not up to the standards that we have come to enjoy. It dosen't seem that the owner takes much pride in their property. The furnishings look like they came fome a Goodwill Store. Several chairs we unusable and the drapes amd blinds were in poor condition. The small appliances were old and neede replaced, especially the coffee pot. Kitchen utensils were the bear minimum needed. The bathrooms need hooks to hang clothes and a towel ring or rod for the hand towels. I will definatly select a different property for my next visit.
James B. from Jackson, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Location was fine, but back half of master bathroom took up a 3rd of Condo. Second bathroom, you had to stand a side to close the door.
Mark F. from McCordsville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We had a wonderful time! The condo was clean, but there was a little odor when we first got there. A mildew smell, but the condo may have been closed up for a while before we got there.A few small maintenance issues that did not effect our stay and we didn't even report to management. The chair in the living room had a loose arm, the patio screen door was off the track and there were small tears in the couch cushions. No big deal.Access to the beach is wonderful and the view was wonderful. Saw dolphins several times.Thanks for a great week!
Michelle M. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 We had a great time on the beach. Just what we were looking for. The unit could have been cleaner and a couple of things were broken. My brother rented the unit above us which was great.
A guest from Irvine, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 We had a great time and love Gulf Shores. Condo size was great and location/view very nice. However, the unit needs a deep cleaning, maintenance and updates. There was an odor in one bathroom that was unpleasant. Floor had not been cleaned thoroughly. Chair in living room was wobbly and towel rack in bathroom was loose. Subjectively, I think furnishings and decor could use an update with more of a "beach" feel rather than "safari". In retrospect, we should have called Bender Realty immediately for a re-clean of the space which probably would have improved our experience. The folks at Bender were very nice and professional.
A guest from poplar bluff, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Was very clean and had everthing we needed down to a kitchen with every cooking utensil and cookware you would need. The clothes washer leaked but someone was there within an hour and fixed it. The view is beautiful.
Beth K. from Halls, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 We stayed 7 nights and had a GREAT time! I love being right on the beach. I also love a low-density complex. I don't want a crowded beach or pool, so Caribbean was perfect for us. The condo was big enough for our family of 4, and the Bender staff was very helpful. Thanks!
Norman H. from Greenville, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 It was pretty good and mostly what we expected.The pool was nice as well as the outdoor grills and the view from our room was spectacular. Our airconditioner was broken for the first three days and we had asked for a reduction but no luck there. BTW they did fix the air right away when notified and were very pleasant to deal with.
Paula M. from Centertown, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 The location was great. We loved the fact that the building was small with a limited number of units, that all faced the beach. We would definitely stay here again and loved working with Bender Realty.
Sue M. from Irons, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in February, 2012 the condo floors could of been mop a little better, they also need some rugs by the doors to help keep the sand out, they also need a broom in the condo so the floors can be sweep. towel rack in big bathroom needed to be fixed. condo was in a nice location
Anthony J. from Orlando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 The stay at the condo was great. I was un happy about the $110.00 Departure Clean fee and the $48.57 Reservation Booking Fee. This was not told to me when i called in and i was completely un aware of these additional cost. You should fully dis close the total cost on phone orders. This was the only bad experiance i had with Bender Realty.
Martha E. from Soddy Daisy, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2010 The only problem we had was there was a leak in the indoor pool and couldn't use it which is the primary reason for staying here. Also we picked this condo because the outdoor pool was heated and the heater didn't seem to be working either. Talked with Bender Reality about checking the heater and don't believe anyone actually checked into it for me. A little disappointed in that but now realize I can't believe when people tell me the pool is actually heated. Otherwise nice condo and nice location. Also it wasn't hard to get to the room from your car and to the beach.
A guest from Metairie, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2009 Needs new pots/pans as the finish was coming off most...bathrooms need some attention, but overall condo needs some maintenance
A guest from Athens, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2009 When we arrived, the floors had not been cleaned at all, but the staff of Bender was very helpful and their was someone there to assist us right away. Overall, the stay was great.
A guest from Troy, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2009 I rented 5 condos for my family. 2 of the families had little ones. 401 and 404 they complained the floors were not very clean when they got there. Otherwise we loved the place and one of my son-in-laws wants to plan a vacation with some of their neighbors that travel together. They went to Myrtle Beach last year but they liked this a lot better.
Kristen P. from Folsom, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008 I think 10:00am is too early to check out. It used ot be 11:00am and that works much better. Especially when traveling wit children and senior citizens.
Deana H. from Acworth, Georgia does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2008 I was disappointed with the over all the cleanliness of the condo. The floor was filthy to the point if you didnt wear shoes your feet were black! The knobs on the cabinets in the kitchen were falling off. The condo had VERY bare essentionals in the kitchen.
Kimberly P. from Baton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 Had an awesome time. Everything was great! Very comfortable. Very clean. Only complaint.. Hot water heater did not get hot enough or stayed hot.
