Location, location, location. After a five minute walk over our foot bridge that crosses wildlife teeming Clam Bayou, you will be on our wonderful secluded beach. Walk the other way from our lanai for a minute and you will be at the pool.

July, 2013--Our beach, Bowman's Beach, has been recognized as one of the top ten best in the world by U.S. World Travel. We are not surprised.

October 28, 2013. Big day for wildlife. We can hear our screech owls talking to each other. Also saw 5 manatees and an alligator in our bayou. A few roseate spoonbills too.

Summer of 2014. A family of manatees has been living in our bayou. There has been a traffic jam of people watching them almost every day.

We have a two bedr...

Had a wonderful time. Great for kids and adults. F102 has everything you'd ever want. Nice large pool and beautiful grounds. Short walk to secluded beach. Lots of shells.

Blind Pass condos are located at the quiet uncrowded end of Sanibel. This particular unit is is close to both the pool and path to the beach. The large screened porch was an added bonus for storing the beach supplies you don't want to bring in the condo. This cuts down on the sand being tacked in. This was our...

I love the condo. The environment was great. Not a lot of kids. A lot of restaurants and not very far from activities.

About the neighbourhood
Sanibel Island is located three miles out in the Gulf of Mexico near Ft. Myers in SW Florida. The closest airport is in Ft. Myers (Regional South West). It takes 45 minutes to get from the airport to our condo by car. There is a bridge/causeway system that connects Sanibel to the mainland.

The island is blessed to have two world renowned attractions: The Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum. This museum is widely regarded as the best in the world. There is an abundance of charter boat captains that specialize in fishing and shelling adventures. There are many fine restaurants, two supermarkets, two shopping centers and many small boutique shops.

If you are into biking, there are hundreds or maybe thousands of bicycles for rent on the islan...
