Are we on the beach?

Technically, yes, because there are no buildings or roads between our complex and the beach.  There is a five minute walk, but that ensures that once you are there, no buildings will spoil the view.  We consider the walk a feature.  It crosses a small estuary on the way where one can almost always spot egrets, herons, or spoonbills feeding.  An osprey nest is nearby and they can always be seen circling.  Occasionally, safely down in the water, a gator will make an appearance.

What is the weather like?

From December through March it is typically in the 70’s – 80’s during the day and around 60 at night.  Light jackets at night are good to have during these months.  From March through November it is typically in the 80’s – 90’s during the day and 70’s at night.  The skies are mostly sunny with a short tropical rain occasionally in the late afternoon. The summer months tend to be more humid, although between air conditioning and the pool and beach, it is easy to be comfortable. 

How long do I need to stay?

The rentals are most commonly by the week.  If your needs are other than weekly, talk to us and we may be able to accommodate a different length of stay.

How to I make the booking?

Please contact us via this website and let us know what you are looking for.  We can confirm availability of the apartment and put you in touch with the rental desk.

What if the week I want does not seem to be available?

Still contact us. We will try to find an available time that works for you; if we cannot, we can contact the other owners at blind pass and find another apartment for you.

How many people can stay at E210?

The apartment can sleep six comfortably including use of the sleep sofas.  If extended families or friends want to vacation together, you could look into renting two units.  It can be a fun and easy way to vacation together.

How much ahead do I need to book?

The high season (winter) tends to book six months to a year ahead.  The other seasons have more flexibility, however we intend to keep E210 booked throughout the year, so let us know your plans!

 What do I need to bring?

Only your personal belongings – clothing and toiletries. There is an excellent grocery store about four miles away.  We supply a starter kit of soap, dish detergent, trash bags and laundry detergent, but there typically are not spices and condiments in the kitchen, nor any food stocked when you arrive.  Most people plan on a grocery store run shortly after they arrive.

How far are you from the nearest airport – and which airport is that?

We are 45 minutes from the Southwest Florida International Airport (airport code RSW) in Ft. Myers.  There are rental car agencies at the airport and directions to Sanibel are straightforward.  Note that there is a $6 toll to get onto the island – this is to help pay for the beautiful new causeway that takes you onto the island.

What is the parking situation?

There is one covered parking spot provided for you, designated for E210. These spots are marked and easily located.  If you have guests visit while you are there, there are several spots marked ‘Guest’ that are for that purpose.  There are no parking lots; the presence of automobiles at Blind Pass is remarkably understated.

What is your refund policy if we need to cancel?

We will direct you to the Blind Pass rental office for those details, but usually if they are able to rebook your week, you will only forfeit the deposit fee of $35.

Can we rebook for the following year while we are there?

Yes, by all means.  You can arrange this at the rental office (next to the pool) while you are there, or you can contact us or Blind Pass whenever you are ready.

Can we email you with comments or suggestions for improvements?

Yes!  By all means.  We intend our home to be a comfortable and happy place for all who stay there and we welcome your suggestions.
