About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful condo! This was our 9th trip to Sanibel, but 1st at Ocean's Reach. Loved the beach, pool, bikes, shuffleboard and gorgeous weather! 80 degree temps and sunshine all week! Interesting sea creatures - dolphins jumping,and plethora of fish outside the edge of the water. Fantastic ocean views from the lanai. We will definitely return next year! Can't wait! There is no place like Sanibel Island and we look forward to our 10th visit next March!

New favorite place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We previously vacationed on the Panhandle but have found a new favorite place to stay on Sanibel Island at Ocean's Reach. We celebrated our fortieth wedding anniversary while we were there. Our condo was just perfect for the two of us. It was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai each morning and then headed to the beach. Access to the beach was so easy, especially since I am handicapped and used a beach wheelchair. Having beach chairs provided and a locked storage area under our carport was a real convenience. The on-site staff was helpful in every way. I guess the only thing that we didn't like is that we couldn't stay longer - a mistake we won't make again! Hopefully next time we can stay at least ten days! We highly recommend this unit!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 small children and we loved our stay. The condo was comfortable and very clean. After a few days at Disney this was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beach.

First Visit to Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely location for our first visit to Sanibel. The condo was very comfortable, the view of the Gulf was fabulous, and the weather was perfect while we were there. We enjoyed searching for shells, visiting the J.D."Ding" Darling Enviromental Area, going to Capitiva and most of the time just relaxing. Everyone at Ocean's Reach that we had contact with was courteous and helpful. We would go back there again.

walk on the beach for 5 minutes to right- Casi Bel
Car: recommended

There are wonderful boat tours that travel the inland water way to the island of Useppa and Cabbage Key. There are boat trips to Cayo Costa, Upper Captiva, and Pine Island. Dolphins follow the boats jumping out of the water. Ding Darling Preserve has open bus tours that are well narrated about the birds, alligators and tides in there. You can also do this by canoe--there are marked waterways to travel in a rented canoe. Take this from Tarpon Bay Marina.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, racquetball, shuffleboard, basketball court, health spa, miniature golf
