Blind Pass Rules & Regulations

The following rules and regulations are for your safety and to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone staying at our “Island Paradise”.

Disclaimer/Notification for New Reservations

We are so very happy to welcome you back as our guests at Blind Pass Condominiums on Sanibel Island! Please bear in mind that while we are thrilled to once again accept rentals, our recovery from Hurricane Ian in September 2022 will continue throughout 2024 as we work to restore the property to the paradise you’ve come to know and love.

Footbridge Closure: 
Our footbridge that goes across Clam Bayou is not open yet, we will be keeping guests updated on when that project will be completed. For now, guests can use the Bowman's Beach public access which is across the street. It is approximately a 6 minute walk to that bridge access from our resort. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, rest assured that we are working towards rebuilding our footbridge as quickly as possible.

Ongoing Renovations:
During your stay, you may encounter disruptions such as noise from work/delivery truck traffic on the property; ongoing renovation work in units; noise/dust from landscaping projects; and noise/dust from construction work on tennis and pickleball courts. While we will attempt to minimize the intrusions during your stay, all the work you will see and hear is necessary to fully restore the resort back to the paradise setting our guests have enjoyed over the years. Working hours will typically be between 8am – 4pm during the weekdays.

Temporary Amenity Closures: 
Amenities such as the footbridge, pool, tennis/pickleball, etc. may not be fully available and are subject to temporary closure with little or no notice.

A Note About Refunds and Discounts:
There will be no refunds for early departures or discounts given due to concerns related to ongoing construction/renovation work on the property. Our clubhouse will be open Monday through Saturday, 9am-4pm. If you have any questions or concerns, our knowledgeable and friendly staff will be there to help. Thank you for your patience and understanding during our recovery process. We look forward to hosting you! Book now at www.blind-pass.com or call 800-852-2038
