"This was my family of 6 first stay at this condo unit where we were for the past week (mid-March). When we arrived we found the unit to be appropriately cleaned. The condo was well laid out and very comfortable to relax, cook, and eat. The kitchen had all of the utensils that we needed. We used the blender to make tasty Pina Coladas. Hmmm! We cooked in for all of the nights except for one and we used the community grills 4x during the week. With this first floor unit, the grills are conveiniently located one the other side of the tennis court. Blind Pass has 5 Weber gas grills to use; a very nice set up. We brought a perforated pan to cook veggies and fish, which worked out great. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook each meal. The kitchen table is big enough to comfortably accommodate 6 people and could handle 8. The living room furniture was comfortable, especially the rocker. There were TV's in the living room and in all bedrooms that we never used.
The unit had a blender, coffee maker, washer, dryer and fairly new SST kitchen appliances. The bedrooms were all nicely furnished to store our clothes. 2 of the 3 bathrooms had what appeared to be new shower units that had multiple shower heads or nozzles and had large shower stalls. There were hairdryers in at least 2 of the bathrooms. The air conditioning worked good in the day time, but it was limited to 71 degrees at night which made it a little too warm for us. The unit had a screened in porch which we used to sit out and relax and play some board games.
There are 2 tennis courts in the complex; one is right outside the unit. And the swimming pool and condo association's offices are no more than 50 yards from the unit; very conveinient. The staff at Blind Pass was helpful and accommodating. The unit came with multiple toys to enjoy your time there including: a beach wagon, several coolers of different sizes, some children's beach toys, Frisbee, about 4 beach chairs, a beach umbrella, a small space heater, and some fishing rods and reels. However, the umbrella isn't particularly robust and several of the chairs are showing their age. It's about a 5 minute walk down to the beautiful Bowman Beach. We watch several sunsets there. Gorgeous. We rented bikes for the week but it was a 7 mile ride into town and then back, so we wouldn't do that again.
Peter, the owner responded promptly to all emails. In summary, I highly recommend staying here."

"This was our first booking through VRBO, and we were not disappointed! From the start, communication the owner was friendly and easy. She made us feel at home before we even arrived by supplying us with lots of useful information and maps. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchen and bathrooms had everything we needed, and the beach supplies in the closets were a great bonus! Beach chairs, beach cart, beach umbrellas, beach toys, beach towels - knowing that all this was there made packing a breeze so we were able to get in and out of the airport in record time (that's with 2 kids 8 and 4) While staying, we saw manatee, aligators, osprey, and over various water birds in the bayou. The beach had live conch shells, sea urchins, and baby horse shoe crabs. The only wildlife I didn't appreciate were the 'no-see-ums' but they were only bad if you wanted to take in a beach sunset. We weren't prepared for that and got bitten up pretty badly. I now know their name and know how to protect myself. the owner called to check on us a few times, but she missed us a few times because we were enjoying the beach and the rest of Sanibel. She caught us eventually and just wanted to know how everything was going and if we had any questions. All in all, it was a very enjoyable stay and if we're going back to Sanibel in the future, we will look up this spot again."

"I am incredibly late in posting a review for this lovely Blind Pass Condo, but we absolutely loved staying here while visiting the island of Sanibel for the first time. Everything in the condo was clean, comfortable, and extremely quiet! Loved the corner jetted tub with a glass of wine each evening after walking for miles along the pristine Bowman's Beach!! We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Owners were very friendly and communicated well with us and gave us lots of tips on where to dine and what to see before we came. If you love a quieter beach with less people, love shelling, walking along a long sandy beach for miles, and viewing birds, then this is THE PLACE for you!! The only difficult part of our stay was trying to decide how many shells (especially the bigger ones...and I do mean bigger than we found anywhere on the island) we could stuff into our suitcase and the actual leaving part :) I would absolutely travel to Sanibel Island again and stay in this exact condo!"

"Location on the Island is great for those wanting more privacy. The photos show the unit perfectly - this unit is above and beyond any other rental we have stayed in. The furnishings are high end and the unit is well maintained. The walk to the beach is lovely.....and all of the beach supplies are perfect. We rented kayaks and were able to experience playful manatees on our excursions. The beach is wonderful for shelling. The pool area is well maintained as well as the tennis courts. We only went off the Island once in our four days and that was to a beach walk with the curator of the Shell museum. When visiting Sanibel this will always be our first choice."
