HELP with a place to stay.

Okay I am down to two choices....Blind Pass Condos or Tarpon Beach condos. We (3 seniors) do like a gulf view which we would not have at Blind Pass. We are going February 17-24. We like quiet beaches, not so crowded, and we love just walking the beach and shelling and enjoying nature. So what do you think would be better?? Thank you!!

Personally, I would choose Tarpon Beach Condos because of their location.

However, since both complexes are on Sanibel Island, and not Captiva Island, you might post your question there to find more people who know about them.

Tarpon has the view and is closer to all of the shops and resturants. Blind Pass is not ON the beach, but is surrounded by pretty tropical foilage with a nice walk to the beach over a lagoon. Blind Pass condos are also on Bowmans beach---much nicer beach IMO. If you are wanting to explore Sanitva/Blind Pass Beach and Captiva I'd pick the Blind Pass location. If you are content to stay on Sanibel and want to bike, shop and eat out most nights I'd pick Tarpon. You can't go wrong with either location.

Little confused. Your posting in Captiva forum but your choices are on Sanibel.

On Captiva consider Tween Waters Inn or a Beach Villa at South Seas Island Resort, a unit at Jensens on the Gulf for Beachfront.
