August Vacation
Matthew N. from Brownsburg, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2017
We very much enjoyed the condo at Island Royale, Unit #806. It was very well stocked, better than any condo we have stayed in. We loved the view. The space worked perfectly for our needs and we would recommend this unit and we would stay here again.

1st family vacation on the beach
A guest from Harrison, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2017
Condo was perfect design and setup. Great beach view and atmosphere. So relaxing day and night. The deep sea fishing trip with Summer Time Charters in Dauphin Island was a wonderful experience and didn't disappoint. Favorite dining was The Tin Top Restaurant in Bon Secour, Brick and Spoon in Orange Beach. Also enjoyed Acme Oyster house, Lulu's, The Hangout and The Original Oyster House. Best vacation ever. Can't wait to come back to try other dining experiences.

Best Vacation We've Ever Had
Jodi W. from Dayton, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013
Our family of six loved the condo and the location. The view was great, and being right on the beach was awesome. Other than the dryer which simply would not try a load of clothes--even if it ran for hours--we didn't have any problems. Bender was great to work with so we could easily envision staying in Gulf Shores again (but in a different unit due to the dryer).

Thanks for your helpful comments. The dryer is now working fine - our maintenance department found the dryer exhaust hose was crimped and they fixed the problem. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return!

Another Week in Paradise!
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
This was close to our 20th family vacation in Gulf Shores and we'll keep coming back. The beach is beautiful ,the people friendly, the condo, very nice. It's was the first time at Island Royal,.(Usually we stay at the Gulf Village.). The balcony was very spacious, the furnishings comfy. This condo was smaller than at G. V.,but having a 3rd bath was nice. My only complaint is that the condo is advertised to sleep 8. The sleeper sofa was impossible to sleep on. The mattress was lumpy and thin,(I have found this to be the case in almost all condos with any age.) Fortunately our daughter had an air mattress. Also only 2 cars are given a parking pass...understandable if the condo is full, but ours was not. Our son-in-law had to park almost a block away. We cook a lot on vacation as our grandson has severe food allergies. Besides, we didn't want to have to clean up and wait forever at a restaurant, missing my favorite time on the beach. We discovered that our mixer didn't work, and the staff at Bender brought a replacement less than 10 minutes after we called. The kitchen was very amply furnished with dishes, pots and pans and small appliances. My only wish, (and I am an admitted neat freak) is that there was a better vacuum for the ceramic floors. 8 people can drag in a lot of sand even with hosing off before entering the condo. We've been all over the east coast, but nothing compares to the beaches in Gulf Shores. We're already planning next years trip!

Not what we expected.....
A guest from Powder Springs, GA` recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
Bender realty not that friendly. Was told we could have an early check in and when we arrived that did not happen,in fact they waited until the last minute ,5pm exactly to call us to check in, after we had planned our entire trip around this!! Once inside we found that most of the dishes were too large for the dishwasher-who wants to wash dishes on vacation?! Also, we did not get to enjoy the balcony/view as much as we would've had liked to due to the fact that the surrounding neighbors smoked! It would be nice if the entire condo would be smoke free.The elevators were broken on/off all week long,and took hours to fix, which we heard is a common problem in this bldg, which is hard when you have alot of beach stuff to carry to/from the 8th floor!The pool is rarely in the sun, shaded from the huge condo next door and is very small, also closed for 3 days! The condo itself is very spacious,all 3 BR have their own baths.

A week in paradise
Bruce T. from LaGrange Park, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
Our family rented this beautiful three bedroom/three bath unit for the week of July 4th. We loved the location and the layout of the unit for our teenaged son and daughter (and a friend). The beach is beautiful and the fireworks were AWESOME from the pier that we watched from the balconey. Beautiful weather and a beautiful unit. Elevators worked fine. The sliding doors to the balcony were tough to move, but if we didn't close them completely, they were much easier to open. The front door knob does not seem to latch well, but we were fine using the deadbolt when necessary. I would highly recommend replacing the recliner in the living room. We tried to open the legs and could barely get them retracted. The seat of the chair is also breaking apart. We advised realtor about the cabinet door under the sink that fell off in my hand on the last night.We loved our time in Gulf Shores and wanted to stay another week!!! Nice unit for families.

Review of Recent Stay in Gulf Shores, AL - Island Royale
A guest from Lynnville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011
The condo was beautifully decorated, location was fantastic -- on the beach with a beautiful view. The only downside was the elevator broke down the night before we left. We had to climb the eight flight of stairs with elderly parents. The elevator remained out of order the following morning we had to check out so carrying luggage and supplies for six individuals and assisting the elderly down the eight floors was very inconvenient and unsafe. No one from the condo staff offered or acknowledged whether anyone needed any assistance moving their luggage, etc. I really felt sorry for the elderly folks who did not have younger adults their to help them with their luggage. Otherwise the beach and condo was beautiful.

We enjoyed our stay, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Maintenance was very quick to fix a few minor problems with our disposal in the kitchen sink, and the slow drain in the master bath. Our only complaint about the conditions were the dirty toilets. You could see black mold under the rim of the toilets, and in the master bath, the mold was beginning to grow into the toilet. The rest of the condo was clean adn well taken care of.

One problem with Island Royale
Sandra W. from Flippin, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011
This year we brought our sons, their wives, and four granddaughters. Although we liked Island Royale overall, the fact that there is no bathroom accessible downstairs makes ataying there with small children difficult. To use the bathroom, we would have to wait for the elevator and go the 8 flights up - and for the first two days, one of the elevators was broken, making for a very long wait.

Recent Trip
A guest from Hendersonville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011
Cleaning fee too expensive. Management did not know where workout room was located so had to do some detective work to find it ourselves. Apartment had a couple of maintenance issues that we told management about upon leaving. But, I suspect they are a couple of things that have been an issue for awhile. Entrance door sticks so difficult to get in and sliding screen door to balcony in living room has to be lifted to slide. Excellent location right on beach. Balcony is amazing in the apartment. All bedrooms had their own bathroom and flatscreen. Master bedroom had a sliding door to the balcony which was wonderful to open and listen to waves. Managment was nice & we did book this property on short notice so overall happy with property and stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We can access anything in Gulf Shores within a few miles of the condo. The staff at Bender Realty was a pleasure to work with. The staff was very courteous, as well as informative regarding things to do in Gulf Shores, as well as good places to eat. We have stayed at the same condo for the past 3 years, and enjoy each vacation we spend there.

Back to our favorite beach

Stayed for 2 days in July, 2010
We have not been back to Gulf Shores since 2005 and had seen all the pictures and news reports on the oil spill and it's impact to Gulf Shores. We were surprised and very pleaesed that we could enjoy those early morning walks on your beach and swim and float in those beautiful Gulf waters with no problems with oil or those dreaded tar-balls. Thanks for going the extra mile to make sure that our return visit was a great one and we will be back in the future. Sharon Watson and Family

Richard R. from pontotoc, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2009
The deadbolt was the only way to lock and unlock the door and it was VERY difficult to lock and unlock. The doorknob was very loose and needed repair. The air conditioning worked but took a very long time to cool the condo - it didnt seem to cool very well. Overall the building was very nice and the location was great.

Great place to stay!
A guest from Covington, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2009
The issue we had (with 3 kids) is we had to go further down the beach b/c the rental chairs took up the entire area in front of the condo. Our second and most important was there is no restroom in the pool area or anywhere. We had to bring the kids to the room every time they had to use the restroom. Also, the elevator broke the day before we left but it was fixed that same big deal. I would stay here again and also do business with Bender again. This was our 5th time dealing with Bender and every time was a pleasant one.

The pool area was a big disappointment, it was in the shade all day with no sun at all. The room could have been cleaner, there was sand all in the floor when we arrived, so the first thing that I had to do was sweep the floors. I liked how the walk to the beach was really short.

A guest from Effingham, Illinois recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008
The condo was in a perfect location, and fit the needs of our family. It was spacious, had a terrific view, and was equipped with everything I would need from home. My only disappointment was the cleanliness of the condo. The kitchen area and linens on the bed seemed very clean; however, the bathrooms were left dirty. There was black under the rim of the toilets, hairs on the sinks and the soap dishes were dirty. It also seemed like the place had not been thoroughly swept because balls of dust and a few wrappers came out from under the bed in the 2nd bedroom (with attached balcony). The showers didn't appear to be clean as well. I would enjoy staying at this condo again, as long as I was guaranteed it would be more clean the next time we stayed. We definitely are planning on returning next year, and will be booking another rental soon.

Our stay at Island Royale 806 was great. I did have a few issues with some of the lights not working and the dryer not drying properly. I called to report the light issue but noone every came to fix the problem. I have rented from Bender several times and never had a problem, but this unit was not the cleaniest I have seen in the past. All of my issues were reported to Bender. I will be renting from Bender again in the future.

Jonan T. from Oak Grove, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008
The unit was very nice and roomy ~ we loved the large balcony. The toilet in master bathroom would not properly flush. We called maintenance, repairman came, but it never was repaired. The dryer would not heat enough to dry the clothes. This sounds like I am complaining but the unit was beautiful and in a great location.
