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.
About the Owner
(15 traveler reviews)
Lovely condo complex with 3 minute walk to beach on private beach path directly accessed from condo
Owner was great to work with and attentive to emails. The condo itself needed a lot of TLC. Wallpaper is bubbling and pieces missing, many of the condos electric outlets are not operational. THe air conditioning unit had a sign attached stating not to turn it below 75 degrees which was pretty toasty for us when it was 95degrees outside. I am sensitive to heat and had to run fans often just to keep the temperature in the unit tolerable.
THere are lots of extras available for use such as beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc which was super helpful. THe stock of pots and pans, dishes was adequate.....we purchased several items to leave for the next guests such as toilet paper, tissues(none supplied), laundry detergents, Saran Wrap , ziplock bags , etc. IT would have been helpful to have a few more basics available, THe cabinets in kitchen do not shut properly and we did have a problem with some teeny ants on the counters, THis was solved by storing everything in the fridge.
THe master bed in bedroom was very comfortable with extra pillows . The washer deposited lots of gritty, fine sand throughout our clothing.....I think the washer just needs a good cleaning. The master bathroom shower makes a very LOUD squealing noise the entire time you take a shower...for us this was solved by simply using the other bathroom since there were just 2 of us.
Location is great......condo itself needs a lot of updating. Owner was helpful and answered concerns quickly. He was flexible when our travel plans changed by one day which we truly appreciated.
This was my first time visiting Sanibel Island. I love it! This condo was nice, clean, and spacious. It was fully equipped with every thing we needed for our vacation right down to the towels, chairs, and umbrellas for the beach. There is also a nice pool. If you are looking for a place to relax this is it. There is private beach access. We enjoyed walking across the bridge and watching he gators and the manatees. There were an abundance of shells on the beach. I also want to mention that I have been to a lot of beaches and rented a lot of condo's and I have to say that this owner is by far the best that I have ever worked with. He is a very nice and honest man. He kept in contact with me throughout the entire process. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Great Sanibel Vacation
We had a wonderful time staying here. The condo was perfect! Very large with everything we needed for a comfortable stay including plenty of big fluffy towels. Enjoyed the large heated pool. Short walk to the beach over the canal where we saw a large group of Manatees. Nice to have beach chairs and extra large beach towels included along with a cart to easily bring them to the beach. We also enjoyed the canoe and even saw an alligator. The owner was very easy to work with. Will definitely return!
Great Family Vacation
My family & I had a great time visiting Sanibel Island. The condo was perfect! Lots of space & had everything we needed to enjoy our stay & visit the beach. Location was great, not far from things to do & places to eat. Owner was great to work with, even checked on us via email during our stay. Definitely want to return!
Fabulous Get Away
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
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.
