On quiet secluded end of Sanibel Island, this comfortable condo is steps from pool, tennis and private path to best beach on the island. Fully equipped and well appointed, comfortable for families or couples. Surrounded by nature, yet accessible to stores and many activities. Biking, canoeing, kayaking, walking, shelling, swimming, birding, or just relaxing and reading - all are easy and fun.
Our family has been coming to this relaxing island for many years. We are happy to be able to offer it to others in hopes that they may find it as rejuvenating and restoring as we have.
Our apartment is one of the largest two bedroom units on Sanibel at 1300 sq ft. The master bedroom has a queen bed, love seat and a bath with a tub and shower. The guest room has two twin beds and a bathroom across the hall with walk-in shower. The living room will seat a large group and has a surround sound system with CD player, a television and dvd player. The bookshelves are stocked with books and family games, such as Scrabble, cards, Trivial Pursuit and more. The dining room has seating for eight around the table and a cozy breakfast nook by the window overlooking the trees and tennis court. The kitchen is fully equipped with range, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, dishes, glasses, pots and pans, utensils, bowls and more – everything you need to prepare complete meals as well as serve easy snacks. There is a full size washer and dryer off the kitchen. The unit is centrally air conditioned and has ceiling fans in every room.
The apartment comes with linens including beach towels. Basic supplies such as dish soap, laundry detergent and bath soaps are supplied. In our spacious walk-in closets you will find beach supplies such as chairs, umbrellas, noodles, coolers, sand toys, the famous Sanibel shelling nets, and we have a portable crib/playpen and highchair for families with young ones.
There is a beautiful warm water pool with lounges, chairs and tiki huts, showers and bathroom facilities just steps from our apartment, as well as tennis courts – racquets and balls can be borrowed at the office. Drinks can be brought to the pool area from the house (in plastic cups) and it is just steps to go back to the house for anything else you may need. Kayaks can be borrowed for use in the nearby lagoon.
We are on the second floor, the windows offer a good view of the community pool and the tennis court, both just steps from the house. We are close enough to view, but far away enough to not hear voices. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with flowering bushes and palm trees. The apartment is sunny and bright with the shades open and cozy and private with the shades closed.
We are a five minute walk to a pristine sandy beach with a private path. All beaches in Sanibel are available to the public, but this section feels private because the only entrance to it is from the Blind Pass Resort. You can walk for miles and miles in either direction along the beach and in no time at all you will find yourself alone.
The sunsets on Sanibel are stunning. You will want to plan your day so as to be on a beach at sundown. And often, dolphins will join you near the shore. The water is warm almost year round and the waves are gentle. The shelling on Sanibel is legendary – small beautiful shells found in large mounds along the beach just invite you to stoop and sift through them, and you may find yourself taking more home than you imagine.
The island has a beautiful bike path from one end to the other and it is easy to rent bicycles for the day or week or anything in between. The rental companies will deliver and pick the bicycles when you are done – nothing could be easier. There are bicycles riders and walkers and joggers along the route, but it is quiet and very safe.
Another delight of Sanibel is the Ding Darling Nature Preserve; a maintained road through the mangrove and pine forests of the island. You can drive or bike or walk the four mile road and encounter many beautiful birds and wells as rabbits, raccoons, crabs among the mangrove roots, and jumping fish in the lakes – and occasionally spot an alligator lounging in the shallows (behind the wooden barrier).
Sanibel has been a magical place for our family for eighteen years; our children have come to love it and consider it a home away from home, full of wonderful memories and happy times together. Blind Pass is the most comfortable place to stay – in every season, in the most beautiful part of the island. We invite you to share our home there and wish you joyful times and happy memories....Read more

Hello Jason and Liz,
I want to take the opportunity to let you know what a wonderful time we had staying at your condo on Sanibel Island last week. I don't think I can find the superlatives to describe how much we enjoyed being at E210. Upon our arrival and as I went from room to room, I said to my husband, "Look at this! Hey come look at this." You took great care in providing every little detail to make our stay a great vacation ...from the beach chairs to the "noodles" to the small and medium size coolers and even the sun hats. We love to try new recipes especially on vacation and found your kitchen so accommodating with everything we needed. Although, I must say, we thoroughly enjoyed "Over Easy" three times and "Doc Ford's" twice for lunch and dinner.
God willing we will be able to make the trip again next June except to stay for a two weeks. Our schedules are too unpredictable right now to make those reservations, but if the time comes, we will definitely be in touch. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated.
In fact we have been talking more and more about renting addtional time during the winter months to deal with the Pgh's pervasive Seasonal affective Disorder.

My family had never stayed at Blind Pass before. This place was outstanding! Very clean and accomodating!
Loved having a washer and dryer right in the unit. Everything was up to date. Place is beautiful and convenient to the pool, tennis courts, and the beach. Go to the Bubble Room in Captiva for dessert! Very fun!
Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
