This is the 2nd time my family has stayed here. We absolutely love this place. It's easy to get to the beach, the office is there for anything you might need, and the after hours check in is wonderful. We will be back again.

I can't say enough positive things about this resort. Beautiful grounds, very friendly and accommodating staff, well decorated and well stocked units, steps from the beach, storage unit filled with beach necessities. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat to relax, reconnect, and recharge, this is the place for you. The resort is perfectly located for bike rides to the lighthouse, shops, grocery stores and restaurants. It is also a very easy drive by car to those same places. We have stayed 5+ times and have not ever had one issue with the resort. Units are well cleaned as well as the grounds. We have already booked our next stay and are looking to book next summer's vacation as well. You will not be disappointed!

Ocean's Reach has to be the best place to stay on Sanibel Island. Only 65 condos, all beach facing, pretty private beach for guests. It is an extremely short walk from the condo to the beach (like 1 minute) and was never overly crowded. We visited all the beaches on Sanibel to check out the shelling and the beach out in front of Ocean's Reach is the best! We found so many shells and we also found so much ocean life. We saw live sea urchins, live sand dollars, live clams and my husband had the treat of a 6ft encounter with a manatee out in the ocean. There are also lots of sea birds. The concierge service is great - very communicative - will set up bike rentals for you - you can rent umbrellas, additional beach chairs, towels, so easily - they answer any questions very promptly. We stayed in condo 3A4 and what you see pictured online is very accurate for this condo. It is comfortably furnished, very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you'd need to cook any meal. Good counter space. Dishwasher had no issues. Washer and Dryer is in unit. Plenty of towels. Hairdryers in both bathrooms. Showers were good - lots of hot water and decent pressure. Hangers in the closets and plenty of drawers. Broom, dustpan, vacuum cleaner, and plunger in the condo - just in case you need them. It is right by the elevator but it was still very quiet. The owners have several beach chairs, beach toys, shell skimmers, and more in their storage closet which made for an easy time. The a/c worked very well during the warm temps of early June. We rarely return to a vacation spot, but this is one that we want to return to as soon as possible. So beautiful, so relaxing.

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!

I enjoyed another wonderful stay at Ocean's Reach! I was in need of some relaxation before I started my new job, and Ocean's Reach was just what I needed! From start to finish - check-in to check-out, the staff makes staying here an absolute pleasure. The condos are really clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and well-appointed with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay! I love waking up every day at the beach, and walking just steps to the water. The beach is spacious, and there is plenty of room to spread out and have room to yourself. Everyone is friendly and kind. The resort is quiet, and yet family-friendly. You'll love staying here!

This was our fifth time staying at Ocean's Reach and we come back for a reason--we like how every condo faces the beach, and it has a great location. We stayed in 2A4, which was a 2BD/2BA. I don't know if the resort was full, but it wasn't crowded around the pool, and there's always a spot at the beach. I recommend doing morning and evening beach walks--go to the right if you want to watch the sunset. The condos have a washer/dryer and full kitchens. They also have bath towels (there's a spare set in the bathroom cupboard, which I forgot about). You can also rent beach towels at the front desk for $3 each for the week. You also get dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent at the front desk, so you don't need to bring that. Some of the condos, while the look great in the pictures online, actually need a bit of cosmetic work, but there's no reason why that should ruin your trip. Just realize that what you see online may not quite match reality. Ocean's Reach is about a 10-15 minute bike ride (or 5 minute drive) to Jerry's grocery store and various restaurants. I wouldn't recommend walking, especially if you're out at night. There aren't any street lights or traffic lights on the island, and it does get very dark.

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!

We stayed here 7 years in a row when our son was small, we just returned with friends in November and spent the week. Absolutely loved every minute, our condo was recently renovated and just gorgeous. Only rained one day a few hours, we rented bikes at O.R. and explored the island. Beach is just a few steps from condo and shells everywhere. The noseeums that everyone talks about on FB did not bother any of us. People at O.R. were so friendly and helpful...our favorite new restaurant that we found was Mudbugs. Alot of our favorite restaurants from many years ago have since closed up, but there are plenty of new ones to choose from. Sanibel is a slow paced vacation where you can really unwind....night life is slim.... so find a group on FB to investigate who has music available.

Ocean's Reach Condominiums are a little piece of paradise. This resort is quaint, quiet, and perfect. Each unit has a view of the gulf, is steps away from the sand, and is very accommodating. The staff are super friendly and ready to help in any way possible. Assigned parking is a plus. Bike Rentals available on site. Way more amenities that room to list. If you want quiet, laid back, perfection - stay at Ocean's Reach. We have stayed here many times and do not plan to stay anywhere else on the island.
