About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

New owners since 2012 are committed to building a loyal family of repeat guests, our goal is your complete satisfaction! Beach towels, chairs, an umbrella, cooler and wheeled beach cart are provided for your comfort; and an assortment of games, beach toys, books and DVDs ensures you’ll have plenty to keep you entertained. The kitchen is well-equipped should you wish to prepare some or all of your meals and a full size washer and dryer are provided for your convenience. Plus, on-site management ensures any unforeseen issues will receive immediate attention.

Our Island home (unit G102) is situated on the ground floor at Blind Pass Condos in the building CLOSEST to the beach. The short, serene stroll to the sand is a delightful experience--you never know which wonders of nature you’ll encounter on the way! The footbridge that spans Clam Bayou is a great spot to view wading birds such as heron, egret and ibis, and the occasional gator. And from the bridge’s end, a private, sandy path winding past coconut palms and a pair of nesting ospreys leads you to the Gulf of Mexico.

Located midway between Sanibel center and quaint Captiva Island, Blind Pass Condos are surrounded by multi-million dollar homes…not other condominiums...our closest “neighbors” are the wildlife that make their homes in the protected refuge bordering the property. The lushly landscaped, park-like grounds feature a heated pool, two tennis courts and five outdoor gas grills. Kayaks and canoes for exploring the adjacent mangrove-lined bayou are available FREE for our guests and secure wireless internet (WiFi) access in the unit is also complimentary.

Stay with us at Blind Pass Condos on Bowman’s Beach and you’ll be vacationing at the best of the best! Sanibel Island--known worldwide for its beautiful beaches, national wildlife refuge and abundant seashells--was voted by members as the “5th Best Beach in the US” for 2011. Sanibel & Captiva Islands are also featured in the NY Times bestseller, '1,000 Places To See Before You Die.' And our very own Bowman’s Beach--known by locals and long-time visitors as Sanibel’s “hidden treasure”--was voted the “#1 Secluded US Beach” by Shermans Travel.

Ours is a non-smoking unit and pets are not permitted in the complex. We rent by the week from Saturday to Saturday but may make exceptions during low season.

We invite you to share our Island home for your vacation on Sanibel Island.
