About the property

Just steps to the Gulf of Mexico with its warm healing waters, Sanibel Island is host to some of the world's most beautiful beaches and seashells along with the world class Ding Darling Wildlife Sanctuary.

The cozy dining area hosts designer lights and furniture from Haverty's. The porch has table and chairs overlooking the Ocean for enjoying your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Or relax in the living room which overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and one of Sanibel's largest expanses of beach which is just steps away. Cable TV of course, and upgraded wireless for internet access.

About Howard Goldman

We live in Maryland, fell in love with Sanibel years ago. The lovely quiet Gulf of Mexico and the long sandy shell filled beaches always restore a sense of wonder and youth in everyone. We spend a week as a family at least once a year and are proud to share our home away from home with our VRBO friends. Please let us know if we can host you!

Howard Goldman purchased this condo in 2002

Why Howard Goldman chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We purchased this condo because it is closer to the beach than any other resort on the island! We intended to redo it over a period of years, but after the devastating hurricanes of 2005, were forced to completely rebuild using granite in the kitchen, replacing all furniture, electronics, appliances, etc. The only thing not needing replacing was the gorgeous view and proximity to the beach...

What makes this condo unique

You cannot get any closer to the beach on World Famous Sanibel Island, the resort is basically brand new, the staff are excellent, the place is spotless! Our condo is steps to the sand, and minutes away to wonderful shopping, fine restaurants, Ding Dalling Wildlife Refuge, Captiva Island. The condo has a large view of the Gulf of Mexico with miles of beach to explore heading north and south. Oceans Reach has completely rebuilt from the ground up in 2005 after Hurricane Charlie devastated the island. Originally built in the 1970's Oceans Reach was redesigned using local materials, paver stones, pastel colors and lovely greenery to supplement to local flora. Our condo was completely redone, and is a quiet, restful romantic get away. Our rates are very competitive, and we are almost always booked solid. Get in touch soon and book your vacation with us, it is a beautiful spot and you will bring home treasured memories!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean's Reach Condo 3X1 was absolutely the best condo we have ever rented for a Florida vacation. Location within the complex was perfect - a direct, unobstructed view of the beach and surf, a quick walk to the beautiful pool, and very close to the assigned parking space and bikes. If you choose this condo, you will NOT be disappointed, as we think it is one of the finest on the beach.
