Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Air Conditioned, Heated

SHELLING: Bowman’s Beach (Description from Lonely Planet Guidebook)

Bowman'e Beach is the quintessential Sanibel Beach, a bright dollop of coast that exudes relative seclusion and quiet breezes, with soft white sand sprinkled with excellent shelling throughout. It's remote in the sense that is rarely feels crowded. The stretch of shore is well protected and preserved. As such Bowman's feels marvelously underdeveloped, even relative to other places on nature friendly Sanibel. Excellent views to the west make for magical sunsets, when the light hits the shells and the sand just so, you'd swear you were in a pastel bonfire.

Our condo is the ONLY one of this wonderful beach. No parking worries, just a short five minutes or so from the condo to the beach.

It’s shells, shells everywhere on Sanibel Island, and one of the best spots to collect is just steps away from your relaxing apartment.

Blind Pass Condominiums is the hidden jewel in Sanibel's crown. Our fabulous units will make you feel like you have your own island home for the duration of your stay, at an affordable price. Our guests simply love the setting...quiet courtyards and winding footpaths lined with lush tropical trees and foliage create a veritable 'Garden of Eden' for them to stroll through.

In addition to the wonderful pool and clubhouse area, we have two tennis courts, free kayaks, and a grilling area complete with picnic tables and gas grills. You'll have no shortage of options as you plan your day. Tennis, swimming, fishing, nature walks, shelling, and lounging on the beach are just a few of the activities you'll enjoy.

A wonderful location on a beautiful sub-tropical island. The

quiet end of Sanibel, no hordes of condos or people. This is the

only condo on the best beach on the island for shells and swimming,

experience the REAL Sanibel. Walk across a boardwalk that spans the

still waters of a mangrove studded estuary. Canoes are available free

of charge to explore this placid bayou, sign out paddles and life vests at the office. Blue herons fish in the shallows and a peaceful silence pervades the water. The beach is

uncrowded, peaceful, shared with birds and the water with dolphins. Walk for miles along the pristine beach looking a the fantastic array of shells or sit and soak up the sunshine or swim in the placid Gulf of Mexico. A perfect family vacation.

The pool is very large and heated to 82 in the winter. Half the pool is shallow, great for small children.

The two bedrooms sleep six with a king size bed in the master, two

twins in the 'guest' bedroom and a queen size sofa bed in the

living room. Each bedroom has its own full bath and are at either

ends of the apartment for privacy.

Fabulous Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Bowmans Beach area is ideal. It is close to everything, but yet quiet and the perfect place to fully relax. The condo was amazing! So much room and so comfortable. There was not a thing that we needed that wasn't provided in the condo. The beach is so beautiful and it is not uncommon to see dolphins playing in the water near the shore. The owner of the condo was really great to work with. We had such an amazing time that we are already starting to plan a return trip.

Our stay at Blind Pass

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful, enjoyable, and relaxing time because we chose to stay in this condo!!!
Everything was as expected and the owner was always available if we needed assistance.
Very clean and very roomy!! I was very pleased that I did not need to bring beach towels!! We could not have asked for a better visit to our favorite vacation spot. Bowman's Beach is a beautiful beach. We were located in the middle of the island so we could go where we pleased. We will be returning and bringing more family with us because this a wonderful spot for all.

Owner's Response: I am very happy to have my renters enjoy their vacation in my condo on Sanibel and to appreciate the personal attention I try to give each family that stays in my unit. Bowmans Beach is really the best beach on Sanibel and we are the only condo complex on this beach. Thanks for the wonderful review

Blind Pass, the BEST of Sanibel

  • 5 of 5
Having visited many seaside places Sanibel and Blind Pass stand out from the rest. The location is unique, no other condos nearby, a beach than goes on for miles with no crowds of people, just birds and at times dolphins just off shore. The condo is spacious with all amenities and an owner that keeps in contact an is readily available to assist with information and concerns. A car is necessary due to the away from it all location at the "quiet end of the island." The island has many restaurants and we were fortunate to have the fall special with the dining booklet that made it a better deal than otherwise. The grounds are quite large and well planted with two tennis courts and a large pool. A great place to experience a naturalist experience but with all activities such as the Wildlife Refuge, shopping and restaurants all within a ten minute drive. Highly recommended for all vacationers.

Wonderful place, great time

  • 5 of 5
My family (with two young boys aged one and five) spent a week at Blind Pass condo in October 2011 and had a great time there. If you are looking for quiet place far from crowd and near nature, this is a perfect place. Bowman beach, which is only a few steps away is the best on Sanibel for relaxing or shelling. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge is only few minutes drive away. Nice restaurants and supermarket are all fairly close by. The owner is one of the few who manage the renting by himself. Thus no overhead cost of the condo association management fees. His unit is maybe the most in-expensive ones of all from the same complex. He also kindly and promptly answered all our questions before our trip with very helpful suggestions. In his comfortable condo, we found everything we need – plenty of cooking utensils, towels, sheets and beach toys. We indeed had a wonderful time there.

Best Sanibel Experience

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful time on Sanibel. Have visited the island many times. This condo was the best because of its location and the amenities provided. New living sofa/bed and love seat, fully tiled kitchen, spacious and well equipped.
The pool is just down a few steps and the walk to the beach is a short hop over the bayou by a footbridge. We saw many wading birds in the bayou and on a canoe trip really saw nature up close. A beach carry all on wheels helps bring anything you like to the beach without having to carry it. If you want a comfortable, reasonably priced fully equipped condo on the island's best shelling place, this is the place to stay. The owner is very helpful and is happy to answer all questions.

Our Island Time

  • 5 of 5
We were referred to another condo owner as this unit was already rented. The unit was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. This time of year is quiet, hot and rainy, but it didn't effect our vacation plans. There is a walk to the beach, about ten minutes. If you have any mobility issues the walk can seem much longer. There is a public side to Bowman's Beach, to the right and to the left a much less populated stretch of beach. Shelling is much better in the winter/spring months as the currents bring the shells to the beach. We still found great shells, just not tons of them. The pool area was nice, posted rules were not always followed and there was no one there to enforce them. It was a plus to have Weber grills to use.
All in all we had a great vacation and we would consider going back in another season.

Owner's Response: The other condo metioned here is at the furthermost corner of the property and is a few minutes additional walk. Shelling is actually much better in the summer, especially after an afternoon thunderstorm. In the winter/spring months there is much more competition for the available shells. Fall is probably the best as it is much quieter on Sanibel.
