“Slice of heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

My husband and I were fortunate to spend 1 week at Ocean's Reach Condo this past August, stayed in Unit 1B1and absolutely loved every minute. From the friendly staff to the owner's daughter, we experienced a slice of heaven! They were easy to work with, very professional, courteous and clearly went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we enjoyed a perfect and comfortable week. Our condo was pristine, beautifully and tastefully decorated, fully equipped with the added bonus of a washer and dryer in the unit. Plenty of room for 2 adults as we enjoyed the screened in porch for morning coffee and every meal throughout the week. Located directly on the beach it provided an effortless jaunt to and from the sandy beaches filled with awesome shells. Beach chairs and umbrellas were also available in the unit. The grounds were awesome, perfectly manicured and well cared for. The availability of bikes was a treat as we spent hours exploring the island each day, returning just as the thunderstorms blew through, giving us the perfect excuse for an afternoon nap. As much as we would like to keep this a "well kept secret escape", Ocean's Reach was an absolute perfect vacation. We will be back next year, and years to come. If you are a family, couple or everyone in-between and looking for a condo on the beach, private, quiet, relaxing, comfortable, affordable with a wonderful staff to work with - Ocean's Reach is truly your future slice of heaven. Thank you Ocean's Reach and we will see you again.

Two 20-something’s needed a quiet long weekend in August; Ocean's Reach 43B was perfect.

Check In: EASY. Sue was extremely helpful both before our arrival answering questions (do we get chairs? Yes. Does the condo come with cooking spices? No. Do we get a parking spot? Yes, covered.) Couldn’t check-in as early as we’d liked due to our early arrival and the fact our unit was occupied earlier that morning. No matter, kept busy at Coconuts at Thistle Inn (happy hour 3-5 every day). The place was immaculate.

Stay: a stone’s throw from the beach. Condo came with chairs, raft, umbrella. Very quiet part of the beach. We were by far the youngest couple there, but we knew this would be the case ahead of time. I mean, it’s Sanibel… Going in August means it’s hot, potential to be rainy (though not for the whole day), and buggy in the evening. Bring bug spray! We were a short drive from everything. Didn't rent bikes although I imagine it was not much of a ride.

Kitchen came with everything you needed to cook (save for the spices).

Restaurants:
Recommend George and Wendy’s (VERY good tuna nachos and buffalo shrimp, The Mad Hatter (pricy, but VERY good: intimate date spot), Timbers (ehhh), Gramma Dots (EXCELLENT crab meatballs, coconut shrimp, lightly fried oysters, blackened grouper sandwich), Il Ceilo (elegant, nice tasting menu a/k/a early bird special). Service was great at all places. Didn’t eat at the Mucky Duck per local suggestion, but did stop by for a beer and a wonderful sunset.

Check-Out: had to stay later than 10am, paid a $30 fee (thanks Sue and Andy!). Again, VERY easy.

If I’m going back to Sanibel, I’m staying here. Simple, accommodating, CLEAN, classy, laid-back, with terrific views of the water. Spent every night on the lanai watching the lightening storms over the Gulf.

Room Tip: Room 43B was a 1BDR with a Gulf Front view. Had to walk three flights (elevator was available too...

My husband and I enjoyed 10 days at Ocean's Reach this summer. This is our second visit to OR and it was just as super as the first. The one bedroom units are plenty of room for 2. The screened in porch is wonderful for coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening with the ocean view. It's very nice to have an elevator for the upper floors and the washer/dryer is a plus. We did not hear our neighbors at all and the staff will provide you with info and more laundry soap and trash bags. They encourage recycling. We rented bikes and umbrellas right there. Having beach chairs in the storage area is a big deal for those of us that fly here. Enjoy!

Room Tip: We like building 4.

Ocean's Reach has everything you want in a Florida vacation. It's clean, quiet, and steps from the beach. The staff is friendly and the condos are well equipped. Sanibel has something for everyone.The only problem is having to leave!

Our whole family agrees that our week spent at Ocean's Reach was awesome. The condo was well maintained and nicely furnished. You can't beat the location - every unit has a view of the gulf. The kids enjoyed the pool and swimming in the gulf. We found so many amazing shells on the beach right outside the condo. We were able to ride bikes to Jerry's to visit the birds. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return!

Oceans Reach is perfect - located on the beach, clean, quiet, full amenities, and bikes available on sight. Great atmosphere (very comfortable for friends, single traveler, or family) - not pretentious. The front desk was very helpful and informative. Stayed in unit 3X2 - tastefully decorated 1 bedroom. Will certainly be returning to Sanibel, and to Oceans Reach. Highly recommend.

We had such an amazing time last year we decided to do it again! If you are looking for a place to go shelling, play tennis, swim in the gulf, take a bike ride and/or sit on the beach with a cold beer than I highly recommend going to Ocean's Reach! Everything is in arms reach!
The property managers are kind and will take care of you! They only want you to have a good time with your loved ones. Our unit was clean and came with the comforts of our own home!
Take time to BBQ in the courtyard and play a game of shuffle board while your dinner sizzles away.
Wear plenty of sunscreen and bug spray.
