Overall very good experience---one problem area--those wooden door stops--during night-time hours I tripped over one and hurt my arm--still sore--you need to think of another method to keep the doors from flying open all the way

Overall the property was great. Location, layout, and price were all fantastic. The only bad thing about the room was that the pots, pans and dishes were dirty when we moved in. We had to hand clean most of the pots and pans on the first day.

My family had an amazing time at Sandpiper. It was great for my youngest child and just big enough that you could keep an eye on your children without a huge crowd. All guests were extremely friendly. The condo was nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. We are already looking forward to coming back.

Quite and Cozy
Rachel T. from rogers, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2016
We loved our stay in 10a it was so quite and family friendly. We met a lot of families there and my son got to interact with children his age. We had the room with the double beds and they were very comfortable. The room was just the right size for my husband, my son and I as well as the bathroom that is off the bedroom. I think my favorite part about this particular condo was the view our favorite part about the day was going outside to sit and watch the ocean while we drank our coffee. The day we arrived to check in we got there we walked into the door of Bender 3 minutes before they closed because we got stuck in traffic on the way. They were so nice, professional and didn't rush us out so they could close. I will definitely be going back and renting from Bender in the furture.

Steve M. from Memphis, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016
We had four persons occupy this unit over a four day weekend. One person utilized the pull out sofa with both ease and comfort. All appliances were in great working order, and we had all the plates, bowls, glasses, cups and utensils we needed. The WiFi was excellent and the television was in good working order. We experienced no maintenance issues while in the unit. I would gladly use it again.

Aleya L. from Tyler, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016
This was our first time to Gulf Shores. This unit really made us feel at home! It is completely updated, contemporary and very clean. There is plenty of room with a King bed along with two twin beds in the guest room. There were no noisy neighbors or loud traffic. The pool is wonderful as well and just walk down the stairs and you are on the beach. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Will be booking again for next summer!

Beautiful AND Clean
A guest from Centreville, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016
The unit was beautiful and exceptionally clean. It was nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom. The kitchen had everything we needed. It rained most of the time we were there so having three tvs was a plus! We thoroughly enjoyed the condo and the complex. Bender Realty was easy to book with and the condo was ready upon arrival. The only problem we had was upon leaving. We went to our car with part of our things and to get a cart. The code on the door was changed before we could get back upstairs and we could not get in to take our things to the car and leave. We spent ten minutes trying to get back in and finally found a neighbor who let us use her phone to call Bender. A housekeeper finally let us in. We were then able to get our things and leave. At 10:03 we were completely out of the unit. We would have been out BEFORE 10:00 if we had not been locked out. I'm not sure why or how the code was changed unless it was done remotely. My advice would be to be out by 9:45 so your belongings don't get locked inside!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bender Realty, Inc.
Please accept our apologies for your troubles with our KABA lock. We never change your code, but the code does expire at 10:00 am. Because of your notification, we now know to reset the internal clock on that lock, and prevent it from happening again! Please keep unit 10A at Sandpiper in mind for your next Beach Vacation!

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016
Sandpiper property is wonderful..grounds are clean, they have security walking around too. The unit we stayed in 10A was great, clean. The only complaint would be more towels. You get 2 dishtowels and 1 dish rag (need two of each so you have something to use when laundrying). Also need a rug inside front door to help with keeping sand out of unit (one outside which they had and one inside would be for the bathrooms..you get 4 bath towels and 1 hand towel and 4 washcloths and one bathmat. You need an extra hand towel and bathmat so you have an extra to use while doing laundry. FYI the unit was missing the pitcher portion of the blender..had the lid and bottom portion but no pitcher portion. Otherwise unit was great!!!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Bender Realty, Inc.
Sandpiper is a wonderful, family-friendly property, and unit 10A has just undergone a lovely renovation. With Sandpiper's popularity, it's very difficult to find a time of year that it's not booked. We never enjoy discommoding our guests, but property management and upkeep necessitate building-wide projects at times. We certainly appreciate your faithful patronage through the years and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We spent 4 days at Sandpiper 10A. It was clean and had everything we needed for our mini-vacation. We brought along 2 little kids that also enjoyed their stay. The staff at Bender was very friendly and helpful throughout our booking and during our vacation. My only suggestion would be to have a recycling service. We are used to separating our trash and recyclables at home, and at the end of our stay, we were disappointed that there was no place to put our box full of recyclable material.We had a wonderful time on our first visit to Gulf Shores!

Upkeep of Condo rental propeerties
Mike P. from Louisville, KY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
I rent two (2) condos every year and have been coming since 1985. It is not fair that some condos are upgraded periodically and others only upgraded when Mr. Bender puts a gun to their head. Condo conditions should be graded on an "A", "B", and "C" scale so I am not seeing my friends and relatives condos who paid the same as me, but with a compliment of tableware, dishes, update furniture, cabinets, countertops, etc. Biggest problem is filth. Filth tile, carpet, air ventilation grates, leaking refrigerators (10A), kitchen waste cans that have not been washed out for weeks/months (I could not get it clean without wire brush, and I did try.If units were properly cleaned and periodically owners were made to upgrade their units, it would make a great difference. For the first year every, I am considering not returning to The Sandpiper because I do not want my little granddaughter crawling in filth.

We appreciate your business and would truly like to have the housekeeping meet your expectations as well as the accomodations. Of course, as each condominium is individually owned, the decor and furnishings reflect the tastes of the owner. There are recommended minimum standards and this particular condo has been well received by previous guests so far this season. Having said that, if you ever find something lacking in your rental condo, please let us know and we will do our best to correct the problem and or provide you with the needed item(s). Again, we deeply appreciate your business and hope that we can surpass your expectations in the future.

A guest from McMinnville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in May, 2013
Great rental company and location. The unit was not very clean. Floors were dirty, dishes had dried food on them, and master bath was moldy. There was an old leak above the master bath tub that had not been repaired. This unit needs some TLC.

Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013
We truly enjoyed our stay at Sandpiper. We vacation at Sandpiper twice a year. The condo is very nice and cozy. We always feel like we are at home but have an amazing view. Thanks to the family for sharing their beautiful home for us to relax and experience the ocean, sun and sand. Great place to stay!!!

Great Stay At Sandpiper

Gulf Shores is a great place to relax! The Sandpiper is a great place to stay. We book here every year. It's right on the beach. It's also convenient to restaurants and shopping. It's a great place for family.

Review of complex in general as experienced by my extended family
Mike P. from Louisville, KY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
My extended family has come to Gulf Shores, Sandpiper for 26+ years (60 to 75 persons per year). My condo 10A was in excellent condition and updated recently. My complaint was with the continuous failure of the elevator. Especially on the check-in and checkout days. This has happened for at least 10 years. My siblings all complained of the lack of dishes, utensils, un-updated appliances, old, original furniture, flat screen TVs (TV are less expensive now than just a few years ago), carpet, etc. in their units ( 15 spoons, 4 forks, etc). We have been coming long enough to know the original bamboo furniture We understand that there have recently been low rental years because of mother nature & BP, but that is not our problem or fault. We love the size of the facility (48 units) and proximity to the pool and beach. If we did not, we would not come back year after year. Bill Bender and Bender Realty are a major reason for our return each year. Something has to be done to encourage owners to commit to a major update of their units. Maybe a rating system of each unit twice a year (Dec. & July. Based on your rating could determine which units get rented first. I have noticed that along with the overall deterioration of the complex, the quality and life style of your tenants has deteriorated as well. Clean it up. Fix it up and raise the rental fees accordingly. I rent two units (10A & 11A). 11A is great and 10A is needing major upgrades of furniture and appliances & utensils (I pay nearly or the same amount for each which isn't fair.). There is a brand new complex up the road toward 59 that has 4 bedrooms & 4 baths that I can rent for $3000.00 per week! This is nearly the same as I am paying (siblings too!)for inferior accommodations at the un-updated condos at the Sandpiper. I own my own business and sometimes I have to spend money to make money long term. So do you owners.

This is the second time our family has stayed in this complex. We love the laid back friendly atmosphere with great views and access to the beach. The complex is well maintained. Parking is a little tricky with very tight turns to get in and out. Great family vacation spot.

Three months home away from home
Ardie K. from Bemidji, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 29 days in February, 2012
We liked Sandpiper's location. Enjoyed the WiFi availability. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen supplies adequate though the missing cupboard shelf made accessing the bowls.etc. a bit challenging for two short women. (We are two widows sharing the condo.) The little balcony was nice, so was the little chest in the master bath.

Our family loves to visit Gulf Shores and we love staying at the Sandpiper. It is a great place to stay. You are just a few hundred feet from the beach and within close proximity to the great restaurants and stores. We can't wait to visit again!

Thanks for letting us know about the minor repairs in the bathrooms. Didn't find any "mildew" or other odors though - had the tile floors thoroughly cleaned just to be sure.

David O. from Appleton, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2010
We had a very nice stay at the Sandpiper. This was our third or fourth stay in unit 10A , starting in 1994. This time we did notice a strong odor of charcoal lighter fluid coming from the grilling area right below the unit. I also had a issue with an "Owner" who thinks because she is an "Owner" can take a persons pool side chair. I guess being a " RENTER " for a week does not get you a chair at a table where all your family is sitting. I guess I needed a reminder that I was a guest. And that rudeness is now in vogue in this country.

Exhausted After Spring Break 2010
A guest from Tuscaloosa, Alabama recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010
The unit and property was nice and comfortable but the furniture & amenities could be better. One BIG problem we had was with the Owners in 10B unit above us. They kept us up until 2 AM each night (up at 7 AM) after we reported them 3 times! Very unfair to paying guests! We had a 6 year old that was more behaved than these adults. This property is usually 'family' oriented but NOT this time. We got some rest & relaxation AFTER we got home!!

The unit was not the one we had booked so that was disappointing. Furniture in this unit was a little worn but the bedding was good. Please tell all these folks who still have the old white melamine cabinets that its high time to replace them after 30 years!!! Faucet in bath leaks and the kitchen items are a little sparce compared to other units in here.
