“Great access to beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

The access to the beach can't be beat. Two bedroom condos are comfortable, kitchen adequately equipped, and nice to have two separate bathrooms. The office staff is pleasant and helpful. We understand why our friends keep returning each year. The ocean views are great.

I won't repeat all of the superlatives that others have used to describe Ocean's Reach, except to say that they are true. My wife and I love this place and we've been vacationing here, alone and with assorted family members, for the past 5 years. Life here is always the same - perfect. The accommodations, the staff, the other tenants, the location, the laid-back and relaxing atmosphere have all conspired to turn me into another "Saniholic" who always returns to Ocean's Reach.

Room Tip: We always book a 2-bedroom just for the two of us as we prefer the extra space and the ensuite bath...

Oceans Reach is an excellent place to rent a condo if you're staying on Sanibel Island, Florida. Their condos are in great condition & very clean; their website is up-to-date and easy to use; they provide lots of extras: nature walks led by an experienced naturalist, well-manicured grounds, easy access to the beach, bike rentals on site, outdoor cooking facilities, as well as shuffleboard, basketball, and tennis courts. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. As an added bonus, they strongly encourage recycling and other "green" awareness. I highly recommend Oceans Reach.

Room Tip: Use the Oceans Reach website to view the different rooms; they have lots of one-bedrooms as well as...

This is the single most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. Ocean's Reach is comfortable, beautiful, private and provides the most comfortable beach chair I've ever used. They say that every unit has a view of the gulf -- this is absolutely true and it's not just a glimpse. It's right there in front of you, easily accessible (just walk out the building door and stroll out to the sand.

As advertised, Ocean's Reach Condos are right on the beach, about 30 paces from the back door of the condo. Beach access is incredibly easy. The location is rather secluded too, so you don't feel like you're in the middle of "Tourist Central". The staff at Ocean's Reach, especially John, was so helpful with restaurant recommendations, we never had a bad meal. Ocean's Reach is only 5-10 minutes from a large variety of great dining places.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor condo, #3A1, which made beach ingress and egress especially easy.

This was our third stay at Ocean's Reach condos. We love it here, and in Sanibel. The condos are smartly furnished and well-equipped for a week or more stay. We have rented a 2 bedroom unit each time. The photos seen on the website are accurate representations. But the best part is the location. The beach is literally steps away. The only complaint we had was that there seemed to be many non-residents or guests who were staying elsewhere who were able to access the property, park in the lots and use the amenities (pool, basketball, tennis, shuffleboard, etc.). The friendly, accommodating staff said they would address the issue and it seemed to get better as the week progressed. We will definitely return to this property!

Room Tip: check the website photos of units available to rent and the property map--they are accurately repres...

I have been to Sanibel in the past but this was my first time at Ocean's Reach and it will NOT be our last! The condo (3X4) was a 1 bedroom that was clean and cozy. It was exactly as shown on the website and perfect for us. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we could need. The king sized bed was comfortable and the views from the lanai were amazing!

The little details like the washer / dryer with detergent, the dishwasher w/ soap, etc. showed how much the staff puts in to making our visit as easy and comfortable as possible. They were available to answer any questions we have. And the availability of beach chairs and bike rentals were an added bonus.

It is close to shopping and restaurants as well as other attractions such as the lighthouse and Ding Darling reserve.

The beach truly is 19 steps from the door. The sunrises and sunsets are amazing! The shelling is plentiful and I was able to add many to my collection.

I could go on but so many others have said it better... Ocean's Reach is perfect for us and we will be back!
