We stayed at Oceans Reach Condominiums June 13-20, 2020. We loved it. The entire complex fronts the Gulf, so each condo as beach/waterfront views. We stayed in BLDG. 2, on the 2nd floor in front of the pool. Everything in the condo/facility was very clean. They have gas grills in a beautiful grove to cook your supper(if you like). Condo we rented was 1 BR, perfect for a couple. This condominium complex sits well off any main road, so very quiet and private. Staff at complex very kind and helpful. This complex rents beach equipment and bikes for a nominal fee, we took advantage of both. Great place to stay.

Oceans Reach is perfectly managed on a spotless, well-planted property. Units are up to date though not extravagant. Sit on the lanai and pass the time watching the waves and the exceptional variety of birds, plus the occasional tortoise ambling across the lawn.

We’ve been spending February at Ocean’s Reach for 6 years, and we’re already booked for 2021. We rent the same 1st floor unit so we can walk right out to the beach and even see the sun rise from our bed. The unit it well equipped, and the excellent maintenance staff responds immediately to any issue. The office staff is one of the best things about OR. We are welcomed like family, provided with information and great advice (ask Andy where to walk and Lisa where to eat), and made to feel well taken care of. They are totally efficient and accommodating. And such very nice people!
The location is great for seeing the island by bike and walking for hours on the beach. Nice pool for a dip or sunbathing...or getting to know fellow residents.
Sign on to the daily blog to get and idea of the Ocean’s Reach vibe.

What a beautiful, beautiful place. Walked in the back door, down a little hallway and saw the awesome view from our patio doors. Nothing but blue sky, blue water, white sand and palm trees. Literally brought tears to my eyes. I dropped what I was carrying and walked straight to the window and stood in awe of the view. Everything in the condo was perfect. Beautiful hand painted beach pictures on the walls, shell design pillows, everything beachy and pristine clean. Most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. We were on the second floor and we could even watch the little brown rabbits playing in the yard. Ate all our meals on the balcony and drinks at night just watching the waves roll in. Will go back in a heartbeat if we are able. Most beautiful place we have ever stayed and we've been to 48 states.

Stayed here for a family vacation. The location is great and every room has an ocean front view. Their website is awesome and provides loads of info and even lets you see pics of each room so you know exactly what you are getting and what the view will look like. This is a big plus and some of the other bigger places on the island didn't have this feature on their sites as you only got to pick a room category. It has covered parking and every unit has a closet with provided beach chairs. Some units may have more stuff in the closet depending on what the owner or other people left in it. Mine had a lounge chair, kids toys, inflatable tub, and beach umbrella. The provided chairs that every unit has recline back so it is almost like having a lounge chair you just don't have the leg rest. The staff was great and quickly responded to any issues. The only minor negative and this goes for most condos anywhere is the lack of a stand alone ice maker. The was one in the fridge but when I got there it was empty and it takes it about 2-3 days to fill itself up. I bought a couple of bags of ice to solve the problem though.

First off, I want to start with saying that I love Oceans Reach. We have stayed here multiple times and have always had an extraordinary time. Unfortunately I can’t say the same this time. This is strictly due to our particular rental unit. The grounds, beach and Sanibel as a whole were spectacular. We stayed in unit 1C1 (please note all units are individually owned, therefore all updates are the responsibility of the owner). The unit left much to be desired. The mattresses were truly awful. Master bedroom has filthy curtains and mold in the shower, as well as growing on the ceiling (or so it appeared). Bedding could use a good, hot wash. The first night we pulled out the couch there was candy stuck to it and no linens or pillows available. The second bedroom had two twins, upon leaving we disassembled beds to check for things and noticed one of the beds had no mattress pad and a stained mattress. Gross is an understatement. No rugs throughout, which may not seem like a big deal but tracking in sand continuously and continuously sweeping gets annoying. The patio furniture is too big for the porch, really leaves room for two to sit out there. The patio door is broken as well. The kitchen had limited things needed-first night we cooked pizza and had no hot pads to use to take it out. We did go to the office the next day and received linens and hot pads, as well as expressed our disappointment in the unit. One staff member seems a bit perturbed at our requests. That was the last we heard from the office the duration of our stay.

We love Sanibel and have always enjoyed Oceans Reach, but this unit needs some major work to make it comfortable.

Response from ocean's reach, Owner at Ocean's Reach Condominiums
Responded Jun 7, 2022
Dear Brooke, We’re both grateful for your feedback and more than embarrassed for the issues you faced during your most recent visit here. As you know as one of our valued longtime guests, we strive to provide clean, comfortable accommodations, in addition to a friendly atmosphere and gorgeous surroundings. It sounds as if we fell short on some of those aspects during your most recent visit, and for that, we apologize and would like to offer you a 20% discount should you like to come back for a May 2023 stay. In the meantime, please be assured that we take your feedback seriously (including the comments you provided before you left) and have shared your concerns with both the unit’s owner, as well as our cleaning company. We typically try to complete intensive “deep cleans” for each of our units as soon as season ends, but as folks are vacationing like crazy this year, we regrettably did not have a chance to accomplish that before your arrival. Such heavy visitation also puts a lot of “wear and tear” on our units, and we have already started to address your maintenance concerns. Again, Brooke, we hope you know that it is our goal to exceed your expectations, and look forward to you giving us another try next year. Sending warm regards from all of us at Ocean’s Reach!

Our family has vacationed at Oceans Reach for years, but I had not been back to Sanibel since 2013. I was traveling by myself the first few days and chose OR because I wanted to stay somewhere familiar. When I drove up…I felt like I was coming home!

What I like best about OR is the privacy, all condos face the ocean and proximity to the beach. We have even fished off the beach on one of our trips. Beach chairs are provided and I rented a nice beach towel from the front office for $3.

Our rental bikes (set up by OR) delivered and I wrote a check for them after they left an invoice on my door. Convenience.

Of course …the condo was clean and the grounds beautifully kept. There is an elevator so don’t hesitate to stay on an upper floor to enjoy the views. I stayed on the first floor because I wanted quick access to the beach.

The smoke alarm went off when I was drying my hair and I contacted the front office. I wasn’t on fire…lol. They sent someone immediately and he replaced the battery.

While he was changing the battery he told me he about a shelling tour at 10,000 Islands outside of Marco Islands. I found it online and we went. (Sidebar here) If you want to do this shelling tour I recommend calling and talking to someone about how much time you’ll have shelling vs dolphin and bird watching. We booked the 2 hour tour and had only 35 minutes shelling. Not enough time and there were some awesome shells! So book the 4 hour tour or call and let them know what you’d like.

But the shelling as always been great on the beach at OR!

Go to Oceans Reach website and locate the link to view condos. You can click on each condo and see the interior before booking. Find one that appeals to you.

Happy Sanibeling!

Why do you go to the beach, or to an island? To be by the water, of course. At Ocean's Reach, It's right there! Unless of course you want to visit the pool, which is also right there! As one of the older resorts on Sanibel, all units face directly to the Gulf, while secluded from the main traffic routes on the island.
The units are privately owned and each is decorated according to the taste of the owner. Some are nicer than others but all are clean and well maintained.
The public area, "The Grove," is handy for grilling, picnicking, playing lawn games or just relaxing and watching the Ospreys.
Perhaps one of the best parts of Ocean's Reach is the staff. They really care that your stay is the best it can be. Friendly, efficient, effective and always glad to see you, they are a rich resource for your vacation.
Oh, did I mention -- we've been going to OR since 1980, when we are fortunate enough to grab a spot at high season!

We have traveled to Sanibel several times and this was one of our favorite places to stay. The two bedroom unit was spacious and comfortable. The complex is out of the way and that was another reason we liked it so much. It’s like you are tucked away from everything. The unit had everything you need and more. The closet downstairs had several nice beach chairs for your use. If you want an umbrella you have to rent it from the office. The complex is steps from the ocean and both the sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. Their website is also one of the most informative lodging websites I have ever visited. It answers any question you could have.

My husband, son and I just got back from a lovely stay at Ocean's Reach in unit 3A2. We've been to Sanibel many times before, but this was our first stay at Ocean's Reach. I really liked the mid-island location of Ocean's Reach - kind of hidden spot but yet close to everything. Our condo was perfect for the three of us - it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It was exactly as pictured.
Furniture was in good shape and the beds/pillows were very comfortable. Pool area was nice and the ocean view was great. We rented bikes, 2 umbrellas and beach towels when I made our reservation and they were all ready for us when we arrived. Having a washer/dryer in the unit was so convenient. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. the grounds were also nice and we enjoyed playing tennis and shuffleboard. There were many other families staying there as well but noise was never a problem. Now that we've found Ocean's Reach I'm sure we'll be back!
