“Great Location!”

We stayed in Ed's roomy condo for 10 days in October..great time to go! No crowds :)
The condo has lots of room, a kitchen with everything you need.

Although the décor needs some updating, everything was all right and reflected by the price.

Ed is easily contacted and quick to correct any problems!

Be sure and use the kayak/canoes available for guests (maybe get the ants out first) and keep your eyes open for both manatees and alligators in Clam Bayou!

The proximity to Captiva and Sanibel without the hustle and bustle makes this a really good place to stay!

Thanks for the wonderful review. Updating the decor is on the menu. Sorry about the kayak/canoes but they are kept outside and the trip along the bayou is worth the minor inconvenience. This is still the best deal at Blind Pass, the only complex to really experience the "real" Sanibel.

“Comfortable Condo Within Walking Distance of the Best Beach on Sanibel!”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

people found this review helpful

Ed's condo is spacious, clean, comfortable, and very functional. It's not fancy and it doesn't have "updated" decor, but it has comfortable beds and couches, a big six-person dining table, and a decent galley kitchen with a washer/dryer. It has a nice layout, with a bedroom/bathroom on either side of the living/dining area, providing lots of privacy. There are plenty of bed linens, bath and beach towels, plus assorted beach gear: chairs, umbrellas, etc. The condo grounds are lovely and the pool is very nice. Best of all is the beach: it is about a ten-minute walk, through landscaped condo grounds, a little bit of woods, over a footbridge, and then a lovely sand path through the palm trees and sea oats to a gorgeous uncrowded beach. I rented a bike, toured around, and checked out most of the Sanibel and Captiva beaches, and I really do think this is the most peaceful, spacious, beautiful beach of them all. Buildings are way back behind a screen of trees, you can walk for a couple of miles in either direction, and the access from the condo complex is private, pedestrian-only, so this part of the beach was never crowded. Great sunset watching!

This is a residential area a couple of miles west of the town center, so if you want to be in the heart of the "action," it's not a good choice. But if you want a low-key vacation with easy access to a gorgeous beach and to the Ding Darling Refuge, this is the place!

Tip: take advantage of the free kayaks and canoes the condo complex has and paddle around in the little waterway under the footbridge. It may not look like much from where you put in, but it is really beautiful and peaceful, goes back a couple of miles, and we saw at least as many birds there are we did in Ding Darling, with the advantage of almost total privacy. (I think we crossed paths with two other canoes during our two-hour outing.)

“I loved Sanibel Island and Bowman Beach.”
Reviewed 3 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

people found this review helpful

Pros: Lovely quiet condo community with nice landscaping. Walk to beach wasn't as bad as some reviews due to the scenery.(but I'm a young 67 year old. what do we know) Pool was great and staff was very curtious even though I didn't rent one of their units. Beach was more than I expected with shells, shells, and more shells. My grandchildren actually swam with manatees, three of them, that just hung around most of the day enjoying human contact. The ocean water temp was just right and the breezy conditions at the beach kept it cool. Sanibel is the beach place to go to. LOVE IT!!!!
Cons: My unit had outdated bedroom and dining room furniture but wasn't a big deal. I had problems with entry door lock but was repaired in a timely manner.
More pros than cons.
I would recommend to my friends.

“Wonderful week in Sanibel!”

We stayed at Ed Hurwitz's Blind Pass Condo D-203 and had a wonderful time! The condo is in a very quiet area and the grounds were well manicured. The condo itself is an older type but well kept and just perfect for what we wanted. And it was very clean! We enjoyed daily walks to the beach (got to see Manatees 3 times the week we were there!) and relaxing evening swims in the large pool. Overall this is a great place at a great price! If I had to pick a down side it would be the somewhat long walk to the beach but we counted that toward our daily excersize!
