“Another great vacation at Ocean's Reach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We just returned from another great vacation at Ocean's Reach. This time we stayed two weeks in 4D1, our favorite condo. The location is perfect for us, but there really isn't any condo I wouldn't enjoy! My daughter, granddaughter and I have been coming to Ocean's Reach for many years. We don't even search for a different location. We have found the best!
It is nice to have full time friendly staff, beautiful well maintained grounds, nice ocean view pool, and just steps to the beach.
This year we were there over the 4th of July. Sanibel has a very good Independence Day Parade! We hope to return many times. :)

Room Tip: I don't think there are any bad rooms. Some are one bedroom, some are two bedroom, some are cor...

We enjoyed a week in 1B2. Oceans Reach is centrally located in Sanibel. The location is just about ideal. We loved having the balcony that looked directly into the Gulf. The condo is well stocked with everything we needed for the week. It's nice that OR provides toilet paper and paper towels, which other condos on the island do not provide. I felt the unit was a very good value for what what we paid.

The condo was very quiet and it was nice to have a carport and outdoor storage.

The beach is beautiful with lots of shells to choose from. I felt it was never really that crowded. The property has rentals from Billy's right on property. We were able to secure an umbrella and bikes right on property for a nominal fee.

Our unit was clean, but the carpet in the bedroom is due for replacement or some TLC.

The office staff was very nice and friendly.

A few things need some work:
1. WIFI - It is terrible. Frequently cuts out / very slow. Called the office about this and said that there is not a router in each unit and just to choose the one with the best strength. They need to add a router in each unit / repeaters or get a router than can provide a stronger signal. My guess is there are too many people using the same units wifi.

2. Hot water - The hot water in our unit was in and out. Not sure what influenced its availability, but sometimes it would scold and other times it was non existent. Admittedly we did not report this to the office and it really wasn't a big deal to us, but does need to be fixed.

3. Power surges / flashes - Another issue we did not report but we had power surges all week where the power would go out for just a minute. Not a big deal (and probably not the properties fault) but annoying.

Room Tip: We had a condo located on the second floor. I would go second floor or higher for ideal view of the...

We stayed in condo 4D2 which was very well stocked, clean and comfortable. So nice to have two bedrooms and bathrooms for three of us. A lovely view from the lanai (with a ceiling fan) and right on the beach. The storage carport had beach chairs, fishing poles, toys, boogie boards. We had never been to Sanibel before and liked the quiet island. We rode bikes (which we rented onsite) to Ding Darling Wildlife refuge, rode the Sanibel Thriller around Sanibel/Captiva (with dolphins playing in its wake), played tennis and just enjoyed the lovely beach. Our favorite restaurants were Cips and Blue Coyote Supper Club. Would definitely recommend Ocean's Reach!

While I don't have a comparison to anywhere else on the island, I feel these are the best. It's not overly fancy, so if that's what you're looking for, you should stay somewhere else. However, if you are looking for a normal condo that feels like home, then this is the place for you. We stayed in a different unit this time, 2A3 for the extra bedroom. It's very nice. This one had corian countertops and a side by side refrigerator. The kitchen also had an island. The bedrooms were quite nice, and so were the two bathrooms. The only downside was the lanai was smaller than the one bedroom unit we stayed in right next door. I think it's because we were on the end of the building. Also, we didn't have quite the same panoramic view as we did in the unit next door because the building next to us was in the way. The customer service here can't be beat. Free postcards in the library- also a library to borrow books during your stay. Beautiful grounds- beware the no-see-ums and bring bug spray. This is island wide. The shelling in front of the condos is nice. You don't have to travel all over the island to fins some shells. Great proximity to restaurants and shopping. Love Ocean's Reach!

Room Tip: Make sure you look through the photos- what you see is what you get =)

We stayed a week in May 2014 and loved every minute of it. Had extremely low tides and saw more live shells than we ever have before. We have stayed at Ocean's Reach for a week every year for the last several years and have not had many problems, and what we did were quickly addressed by management. Really love this place and we are looking forward to returning in September! Especially like condos 4A4 and 4B4. Ocean's Reach is a very relaxing place to unwind and de-stress.

Room Tip: If going in the summer, make sure you use No-See-Um bug spray to keep the noseeums at bay!

We stayed in 1B4 from June 21 till the 27th. The view from our condo was incredible. The kitchen was stocked so well we ate in our condo exclusively. I was very impressed with how the unit owner thought of everything that was essential. The storage unit was stocked with beach necessities. The only complaint would be the bedroom mattress. The review by another patron was spot on with the FIRMNESS of the mattress. The bed was also full of sand, but we got out a blanket to cover the fitted sheet to remedy that issue. Our two teens slept on the sofa bed and stated often how the coil would hurt their back, so if you are bringing other people to sleep on the pull out sofa bed I would suggest getting a two bedroom. When we arrived the floor had a lot of sand residue, but I guess due to location that is to be expected. All in all we will be back to this beautiful area. The grounds are immaculate and the scenery is breathtaking. Our last night there we enjoyed from our lanai an amazing thunderstorm! Just as a last thought! If you go to the beach at night put on bug repellant! The noseeums will eat you up.

We stayed a week on the top floor corner and had an excellent view, especially of the sunrise every morning. The views were beautiful and the porches are screened in, so we never had a problem with bugs, birds, or belongings blowing away. The condo was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. We were extremely thankful for the washer and dryer, which we ended up using daily. The grounds were clean and beautifully landscaped. I'm not sure you can get much closer to the water on Sanibel. Access was easy and shells and other wildlife were plenty. We also enjoyed the shell cleaning station, BBQ area, and outdoor games. We also rented bicycles, which were conveniently waiting at our condo when we arrived. Check-in and check-out was quick and easy. We have no complaints and can hardly wait to return. There is no reason to book
anywhere else.
