Blind Pass condo description

You will love our place! There is so much to do here. You can lie in the sun at the beach or go shelling, swimming or walking along miles of gulf shore. According to the popular travel website Shermans Travel, our beach is the number one popular secluded beach in America’s top ten! There is a variety of wildlife in the surrounding parkland and occasionally manatees appear in Clam Bayou on the property.

Not a beach person? You can relax at the large pool in the beautifully landscaped gardens, play tennis on either of the two courts, barbeque on the available grills, rent bikes to explore Captiva and Sanibel and nearby wildlife refuges.

We have three flat screen HDTVs and WiFi in our beautiful condo and a computer is available in the office conference room if needed. The bedrooms are large and airy: the master bedroom has a king sized bed, a spacious walk-in closet, large mirrored dresser and desk and bathroom with screened in tub; the guest bedroom has 2 full size beds, large mirrored dresser, desk, armoire, dressing room and bath room.

You can take boat tours, hire fishing guides, play golf at local courses, work out at the Sanibel Recreation Center or rent canoes or kayaks to explore the bayou and offshore islands. Enjoy Sanibel art galleries, especially the historic Tower gallery where Sheila’s paintings are displayed, theatres, shops, restaurants and the Historical Museum or the famous Shell Museum.

Attractions a short drive away include Historic downtown Fort Myers, the elegant shopping mecca in Naples, Six Mile Cypress Swamp, Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp and of course the Everglades.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Ernie, an international exploration geologist, and Sheila, a petroleum economist and attorney had significant worldwide travel experiences when we first arrived on Sanibel-Captiva in 1981 with parents and children, but we fell in love with the area right away. The subtropical vegetation was unlike anything we had seen in North America or Europe. We were all fascinated with the large gastropod shells, the peeling gumbo limbo trees and the fallen coconuts we could mail with a letter written on a sea grape leaf! It was only half an hour before Sheila left the family on the beach and went to find a cottage or some other piece of these wonderful islands. We built first on the Captiva gulf and then moved down here for the whole year in 1986. We worked full time and both of us got very involved in community activities: Island Water Assoc., Board of Governors for CCA, Captiva Erosion Prevention District Board, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, Care & Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Old Schoolhouse Theater Board, BIG Arts, Mastersingers, Sanibel-Captiva Art League, Zonta and others. We renovated a place on the Captiva bayside and lived there for a few years, but moved to Dinkins Bayou on Sanibel in 1999 to take advantage of Sanibel’s great bike paths. It didn’t take us long to discover the Blind Pass Condominiums and realize that we could buy a lovely condo and do less gardening and house improvements (we spend summer months in British Columbia gardening etc.), live on a spectacular beach and bayou front property, lie by the pool, walk in nearby parkland or miles on the best white sand beach just steps from our front door. In other words, we have more time for ourselves and our other activities such as fishing. aerobics, painting, singing in the Sanibel Chorus and are even closer to the gallery, classes, BIG Arts and of course, shopping!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Walking in the front door of our condo we enjoy the light and airy feeling of the bleached oak furniture and the maple cabinets in our custom made kitchen. The unique character of our place is accentuated by Sheila’s original paintings of the Normandy countryside. The off white fixtures and soft colors of our new carpeting, bedding and soft furniture add to the effect. We are so fortunate to be only about 275 yards from our secluded beach. The walk goes south over a private bridge spanning Clam Bayou and then via the private path through native vegetation on a protected gopher tortoise habitat. The property abuts a few private homes on the east and north and we enjoy the sunsets over Bowman’s Beach recreation area from our lanai on the west side when we’re not at the beach! Even though we are miles from the crowded condominium areas on Sanibel and Captiva, we can drive west on San Cap Drive to the Santiva Market near the Captiva bridge for last minute dinner party needs in about three minutes!
