                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  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:
                  We have added all the comforts of home for your convenience. The unit has everything you need to cook, play or be entertained.
