Blind Pass townhome description
Renters’ reactions when they walk into this beautifully furnished and appointed home are either “Wow!” or a contented sigh. But it’s not just the furnishings that cause these responses; it’s the seamless connection between the serenity of the interiors and the natural beauty just beyond the wrap-around porch. Framed by palms and banana trees - often laden with fruit - lies Clam Bayou, its gentle water replete with fish and wading birds. Beyond the bayou are mangroves, home to osprey and other coastal birds. And beyond the mangroves lie the beach and the Gulf of Mexico.
Serenity by the Sea House provides 2388 square feet of air-conditioned living space. When the temperatures outside are right, you can turn on the ceiling fans, open the windows and sliding glass doors, and enjoy the island’s pleasant air and breezes and the area’s quiet sounds of nature.
At ground level is the garage; in addition to space for cars, there are bikes for adults and children and a variety of beach chairs, beach toys, fishing rods and a gas grill.
An inviting outdoor stairway – along with an internal stairway from the garage – leads to the first level of the home. On this floor are a large, efficient kitchen, a striking dining room with a table that comfortably seats ten, a spacious, double-height living room with sectional seating, a den, and that very large wrap-around porch. On the porch, a teak table and chairs beckon diners to bring their meals outside to enjoy the water vistas/ocean breezes and cushioned chaises call the visitor who wants to relax with a drink or a good book – or to take in one of Sanibel’s glorious sunsets. Also on this floor are a bay windowed guest room with queen size bed, a full bathroom, linen closets, and a laundry room.
One flight up are two bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom. The master bedroom, with king size bed, has a wall of sliding glass doors that open onto a balcony that overlooks the bayou and gulf; its bathroom has two sinks and a soaking tub along with a separate shower. The second bedroom, with queen size bed, has a view of tropical vegetation and another arm of Clam Bayou; its bathroom features two sinks along with a tub/shower combination.
There’s more! Another flight of stairs leads up to the roof top deck. From here the view is breathtaking, and moonrise as well as sunset are glorious events. Two chaises allow sunbathing, and an umbrella provides shade. Cold drinks to keep you hydrated can be stored in the small refrigerator just inside the door.
Less than a mile and a half from the end of Sanibel and the bridge to Captiva, the house is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. The community pool and tennis courts are a three-minute walk from the house. Bowman’s Beach is a short ten-minute walk or seven-minute bike ride away. The beach goes on for miles and is regarded as one of Sanibel’s best beaches and its best shelling beach. Dolphins are often sighted swimming just off shore. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a true treasure for birding and fishing, is located nearby.
Smoking and pets are not permitted. Twenty-eight day minimum stays are required.
