1B2 is located on the second floor of the first building and has a wonderful view of the beach out front. Watch the sunrise every morning up out of the gulf, the shellers walking by picking up their favorite shells, and the dolphins swimming into shore getting breakfast. Ocean's Reach is new inside and out. The gardens are beautiful all over the grounds; there are pavers in the whole parking and driving area. Driving in, note the palm trees lining the whole street. There is a Grove picnic area complete with grills, lighting, tables for 30 . The pool is beachside. Have your second cup of coffee and enjoy nature's production while seated on comfortably padded lanai dining set or chaise lounge - the sunrise.
Inside has also changed: kitchen in our unit has granite countertops, new maple cabinets and fully equipped; bring your laptop as wireless Internet is here. The living room has a large HD-TV and one 32' has been installed in the bedroom. Enjoy the beauty of Sanibel.
There is the Ding Darling preserve on the Island. 1/3 of this Island is protected for the wild life. You can tour the Ding Darling on a bus or get a canoe at Tarpon Bay Marina and follow the many trails through the Ding Darling. Sanibel does not allow any building to go beyond 4 floors. It also restricts signs to a small size and it is intent on keeping this island beautiful. There are many great restaurants and shops on Sanibel. There is also local theater. Enjoy the experience. Many people here for a week never want to leave the island -so great.
Sanibel offers awesome sunrises and sunsets. It is an East-West island, so watch the sunrise from your lanai and join the people on the beach who toast to the sunset and look for the 'green flash' as they toast to sunset.
The beach here on Sanibel is the Greatest attraction; people enjoy walking, shelling, and bike riding on the beach. The 'Sanibel Stoop' is popular as we see the shellers bending over to pick up their latest finds. We use this condo yearly and update it often to keep it in top condition. There a new dining table, seats four in the area next to the kitchen. We hope you enjoy paradise. It begins here.
