Oceans Reach is a small enough complex to grant you complete privacy, quiet and solitude should you desire it. The condo's are well sound proofed, nicely decorated and well furnished. Having easy access to both the pool and the beach is a huge plus. The location and views can't be beat!! The staff is superb, friendly and attentive to detail. Our condo was clean and well equipped for our ten day stay. We enjoyed being able to dine in for breakfast, lunch or dinner as we desired. We took full advantage of the in unit washer and dryer. Loved the beds!! TV's in all rooms were great for winding down at the end of a long day. Loved the safety grips in the tub surround. Having covered parking for you car can't be beat! The shelling station with identification charts was awesome, we used it just about every day.

We just returned from our first stay at Ocean's Reach. I searched for weeks to find the perfect condo and best location and OR did not disappoint! Everything was exactly as pictured and our condo (1B4) was beautiful. It was very well appointed and we had a great view from the 4th floor. The covered parking space was right next to the stairs/elevator which was nice.

The grounds are lovely and very well kept. They were painting the building while we were there but we hardly knew the contractors were there most of the time. All of the folks that we dealt with from the office were very friendly and helpful.

The location of the the property is very convenient. Jerry's Supermarket (I think we were there every day!) was right at the end of the road and most of the restaurants and shops were less than a ten minute drive.

I would most definitely return to OR and maybe stay for two weeks next time! Highly recommended!!

We spent a week here last January, and are planning to spend two weeks this January. Very quiet and peaceful, and only a few steps to the beach. The complex offers bike rentals for guests convenience, and it's a very bike friendly island. Can't wait to go back!

Just got back from another WONDERFUL stay at Ocean's Reach. They've just finished sprucing up for the new season - fresh paint on the exteriors of all buildings, new screens on the lanais - the place looks great! I stayed in the same unit I'm always fortunate enough to stay in, and I'm never disappointed! Great views, bright, clean, and well-appointed condos, and a very friendly and helpful staff! Love being literally just steps to the beach! Keep up the good work Andy - Ocean's Reach is the best!!

Room Tip: Every condo faces the Gulf of Mexico!

We came acrossed Sanibel island on google just searching for honeymoons. Then came acrossed oceans reach on trip advisor. It was by far the most reasonable with a gulf view. We got such a good deal we booked an extra night. We came at off season and were literally beach bums. It was the perfect place to go and the perfect place to stay. Sue was very helpful in anything we needed before we arrived and the rest of the staff was amazing during our stay. We stayed during the 25% off off season remodeling and never even heard anyone. We will be back to celebrate our first anniversary for sure!!!

My family has stayed at Ocean's Reach for 1-2 weeks each year for the past 40 +/- years. We have always enjoyed the pool on the gulf side of the condos, the very close proximity of the units to the beach, the helpfulness of the staff and all of the 'extended' family that we have met at Sanibel over the years. Sanibel is really like our second home. Our children (16 & 14) have been there every year since they were born. Even as teenagers they look forward to 'their' time on Sanibel. The location of Ocean's Reach is off the main roads on Sanibel. It is very safe, quiet and family friendly. We like to visit Sanibel & Ocean's Reach around the 4th of July holiday to take advantage of the fire works at the Ft. Myers Miracle's minor league baseball game and the parade on Periwinkle on the morning of the 4th of July. Be sure to eat breakfast at the Lighthouse Cafe - and we also enjoy dinner at the Key Lime Bistro on Captiva where you can follow up dinner with a short walk to the beach to see the sunset! If you are looking for a fun day time adventure - a trip around Sanibel & Captiva on the Thriller speed boat is also a fun way to see the islands, get out on the water and learn some of the history of the islands. We could not stay at Ocean's Reach the year that the property was closed due to the damage from a hurricane. We still visited Sanibel that summer - but it was not the same. We returned to Ocean's Reach again when they had reopened the next summer!

Room Tip: The 4th Floor has the best views - and the end units let you look up/down the beach. The units that...

We have stayed there twice and each time it has been a great experience. The people are friendly and the cost is reasonable.
The view of the beach is great and it is only a very short walk to the beach from the Condo units.
One couple we spoke with have been coming to that Condo for over 20 years. That says a lot about the establishment.
