About David Herrick
Hi, my name is Dave Herrick. My wife Sandy and I live north of Boston and we have owned this unit since 2004. We have been coming to Sanibel for over 30 years. We owned a condo in the 80s which we unfortunately sold in 1992. Ever since then, we have been hoping to be able to someday re-establish an ownership position on the Island. Our desire is to establish a high quality, well maintained unit to which our guests will want to return to, year after year. During the 80s we made Sanibel our annual vacation, usually over the Holidays to coincide with school vacations for our three boys. Sometimes we had Christmas trees and boats in tow. Sometimes it was grandparents joining us to escape the Boston cold. On every occasion, it was a trip we all looked forward to with excitement and anticipation. My kids learned to swim on Sanibel. This is where they saw their first alligator in the wild. We took daily bike rides on the miles of bike paths and explored the wildlife at the numerous sanctuaries. Sometimes we just walked the beach at low tide and talked about whatever interesting shells or other sealife we found. Overall, Sanibel became a very special place in our lives. It became a place we all enjoyed together; a difficult concept to achieve in a diverse and growing family. During the nineties, we missed our southern sojourns, but with the kids involved in school activities and moving on to college, it became increasingly difficult to schedule family trips. Interestingly, with the kids now through school and with kids of their own, they have rekindled their own memories and attraction to the Island. We have enjoyed this new phase in our lives and look forward to continuing to share our Sanibel home with our family and with other new and returning visitors. Dave and Sandy Herrick

Sanibel is lovely
We had an excellent stay lasting 6 days and 5 nights at Ocean’s Reach. The unit was very clean, comfortable, spacious, and homey. Cooking utensils were fully supplied in the unit. With respect to entertainment options, there were 3 televisions with DirecTV service, 1 DVD player, and 1 Bose stereo system. We enjoyed the view from the lanai that directly overlooks the boardwalk access to the beach. The entire complex was quiet and pleasant for the duration of our stay. The grounds were well-manicured and aesthetically pleasing. The staff was cordial and accommodating, and they were not at all pushy or difficult. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit. We highly recommend this unit for your next vacation, and we have already made it a financial goal of ours to save up funds for another trip to Ocean’s Reach 3A3.

Our 2BR/2BA gulf front unit is only 25 feet from the beach, an amenity hard to find anywhere on the Island. Located almost exactly on the elbow of Sanibel, the views offer both inspiring morning sunrises and spectacular evening sunsets. The beach is famous for the variety of shells that are found and the surf is generally gentle and slopes gradually, making for a great swim area, especially for small children. With limited development on both sides, the atmosphere of tropical remoteness and serenity is enhanced. With 1000 SF of living space, the unit comfortably accommodates up to 6 people. The screened lanai overlooks the short walkway to the beach and the Gulf.
The complex has 64 units in 4 buildings, located on a quiet secluded dead end street. Its midpoint location on the Island makes for a short drive to Periwinkle and the center of Island shopping. Exterior amenities include tennis courts, heated swimming pool, grills, shuffleboard, basketball court, covered parking.
Other Activities: Birding, Shelling, Nature Trails
