About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6 )

The spacious, 1200+ square foot unit is located in the Blind Pass Condominium Complex (“Complex”) on Sanibel Island. The Complex is located on the quiet side of Sanibel and is situated on a lagoon where you can boat and fish. Cross the lagoon by a wooden foot bridge and you are on Bowman’s Beach- one of the best shelling and wildlife beaches on Sanibel. We have personally found some of the rarest sea shells on Sanibel Island (the Junonia, Lion’s Paw and Scotch Bonnet to name a few- GOOD HUNTING!). The Complex has complimentary canoes and kayaks for guests to use to explore the lagoon and see native mangroves, birds, fish, crabs and sometimes even manatees! The Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge (the “Ding”) is also nearby offering outstanding birding and wildlife viewing. You can ride a bike from the Complex, hike the Ding’s hiking trail, take the National Park Service interpretive tram ride or drive your car through the Ding. Don’t forget your camera!
The Complex amenities include a large pool which is heated in cooler weather, 2 tennis courts, kayaks and canoes, and gas grills.
While the Complex is a Nature Lover’s Paradise it is also a short ride from the many restaurants and fine shops of both Sanibel and Captiva.

Our Home:
Our home has 2 Bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the guest bedroom has 2 double beds. The unit also has a convertible queen size sofabed. The unit has a washer and dryer.
The spacious, 1200+ square foot second floor unit is surrounded by tropical vegetation and just steps from the best shelling beach on Sanibel Island and the Complex’s pool. Being on the second floor with no one above protects you from the annoyance of footsteps and other noises from above.
We recently purchased our unit after renting at Blind Pass for the past 12 years.
Our unit has recently been renovated. A brief description of the unit follows with some of the renovations being mentioned.
Granite counters have been installed in the kitchen and it has been well stocked to meet all your cooking needs. You and your family can eat at the large breakfast bar, dining room table or outdoor lanai. In addition, the Complex has 5 Weber gas grills available to guests.
The master bedroom suite has a new king size bed and the master bathroom has been renovated and enlarged to include double sinks.
The guest bedroom has two double beds and attractive furnishings and wall paintings. The guest bathroom has had a new vanity installed.
We have added Wi-Fi to the unit and have purchased flat screen TV’s and DVD players for each of the bedrooms. The living room has a 40” flat screen TV, a DVD player and a stereo player with an I-Pod dock. We also have books for both children and adults to read.
The lanai, which is nestled in palm trees, is very private and overlooks an osprey nest which is in the park adjoining Blind Pass.
The unit has new beach chairs, new beach umbrellas, a beach cart, a larger beach cooler, numerous beach and pool toys, children and adult board games, tennis rackets and balls, fishing rods together with lures, hooks and other fishing items including even a crab trap.
We hope you will decide to share our home and believe that your stay will be one of your best vacations ever.
We rent our unit by the week generally from Saturday to Saturday but when scheduling permits will make exceptions. Pets are not permitted in the complex.
