About: I started coming to Sanibel while a college student on the east coast and it was love at first sight. Unbelievably the island has not changed since then (1975). It is truly a unique and precious tropical paradise with no towering condos or big boxes. It is as close to virgin tropics as you will find in the US.
Why Blind Pass: It is located far from what could be considered 'maddening crowds',the commercial area of Sanibel. An easy drive - 5 miles - but far enough away to offer no traffic, peace and quiet in the complex and at the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The nature enthusiasts will be amazed at the untouched environs surrounding the small complex. We have added all the comforts of home for your convenience. The unit has everything you need to cook, play or be entertained. Bedrooms both have private baths and are located at opposite ends of the living area. The kitchen is fully equipped for the chef in your group and there is also a poolside grilling and picnic area adjacent to the clubhouse. Beach equipment includes chairs, mats, umbrella and an assortment of toys. Noodles for the pool and a handy cart completes the package. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.
