              Tranquil and tropical, Sanibel Island is situated perfectly for relaxation. Beautiful Bowman's Beach is a very short, scenic walk from this property, and everything from bicycling to bird watching awaits nearby. Visitors can rent a boat or a fishing charter and explore the many mangrove islands; get a closer look at the protected species in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge; or take a ride along the 22 miles of bicycle paths that wind across the island.

              Rather not leave the complex? The local lagoon is good for fishing, or paddle around in a canoe or kayak, provided free for guests. There is a large pool (heated when it's cool) with plenty of chairs for lounging. The complex also has tennis courts and gas grills for guests to use. Those who need to stay connected will find a computer and Wi-Fi access in the clubhouse. Venture out just a bit and enjoy nearby art galleries, theaters, shops, restaurants and the famous Shell Museum. A little farther afield lie Captiva Island, historic downtown Fort Myers, Naples, Six Mile Cypress Swamp, Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp and the Everglades.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: The owners of this property operate two small grocery stores - one of which has been in the family for three generations --in a quiet small town near Louisville, Kentucky. They appreciate being in a place set apart from the crowds and hurried living, so their Sanibel getaway feels like a true home away from home - just with plenty of sun, shells and ocean breezes.

              Why Blind Pass:
              Inside this condominium are two bedrooms, two baths and memories too many to count. For decades this place has been a family refuge for the owner, who vacationed here with his parents as a boy, brought his own children when they were young, and now escapes with his wife every chance they can slip away. With the comforts of home and relaxation built in, it's easy to understand why.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              If you are looking for a taste of Florida unspoiled, you've come to the right place. This Sanibel retreat is secluded and tranquil, but boring it is not. The birds, alligators and other wildlife are protected and plentiful, and the sunsets never grow old. Pristine Bowman's Beach, known for it's abundance of shells, is a short scenic stroll away.
