The New Oceans Reach:
While our Sanibel home was destroyed in the hurricanes of ’04, we completed the new construction and re-opened in December of ’05. While that was a number of years ago, owners and management have worked diligently to maintain the highest standards, both inside and out. We are excited and proud to be a part of the Ocean’s Reach Resort, which offers many new amenities typically found only in premier properties. These include being professionally decorated and furnished, solid surface kitchen and bath counter tops, 42″, flat screen TV in the living room with 99 channels and HD service from Direct TV, bedrooms also equipped with flat panel TVs, reliable hi-speed, wireless internet access and ceiling fans in all rooms and the lanai. Our high standards have been rewarded by Trip Advisor, as we have been ranked #1 or #2 on the Island for the past several years. Visit my photo gallery and decide for yourself.
Inquire about last minute weekly reservations for savings up to 40%. During the four weeks prior to any arrival date, I will discount an additional 10% each week. That’s 10% if booked 4 weeks in advance, 20% if booked 3 weeks in advance, 30% – 2 weeks in advance and 40% – 1 week in advance.
Location is said to be the three most important considerations in identifying desireable real estate. On Sanibel Island this can be further defined to VIEWS, VIEWS and more VIEWS in selecting your vacation home.
At our unit 3A3 at Ocean’s Reach Resort, we think we have a combination of location and view that can’t be beat. Our 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 from the beach offer both inspiring morning sunrises and spectacular evening sunsets. With limited development on both sides, the atmosphere of tropical remoteness and serenity is enhanced.
If you have never been to Sanibel, we believe you will find it to be a uniquely tropical vacation destination. If you are a returning visitor, we invite you to consider our Sanibel home for your vacation. In either case, we believe you will be very happy with your choice.
- Direct Gulf Front Unit
- 25 Feet From the Beach
- Fantastic Sunrises and Sunsets

We will strive to maintain and build upon the goodwill and high standards set by other owners and the management at the Ocean’s Reach Resort. To that end, we will always appreciate your comments as to missing items, repairs needed or other issues we should address. At the same time, we hope you will care for our property as you would your own and be mindful of our responsibility to maintain the same high standards for each and every guest.
Superior cleaning service is a top priority for us. Every guest makes an initial evaluation of their rental when they enter the unit for the first time. Is the unit immaculately clean, does the air smell clean and fresh, are the towels and linens stain free? We are confident our professional cleaning staff will do an excellent job to insure you get the right impression when you arrive.
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your beautiful condo last week. We could find no fault whatsoever. It is not often that we can say everything was better than expected, but your condo certainly fits that description. The size is perfect and the view of the Gulf was so peaceful. This was easily one of the best vacations we have had in recent years. We look forward to coming back again and again!!
Greetings, Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our recent stay at your unit in spite of the horrible weather for the first several days. Unit was exactly as portrayed - great view, exceptionally clean, quiet, and well appointed. As I am told that I sometimes have a unique perspective of things, I also really appreciated the convenient location of the assigned parking. Once again, thanks for helping make our stay at Oceans Reach such a positive one.
My friend and I have used your condo on multiple occasions over the years. It’s always a pleasure to walk in and look out at the ocean view, open the doors and windows and let the breeze come in . . . the relaxation is so needed during our winter vacation. We always find the unit in tip top shape. It’s so nicely decorated . . . and I love the TV cabinet with the glass shelves and the various sea shells you’ve found over time . . . lovely. I enjoy puzzles and will work on one while there . . .no rush, no hurry. I’ve also left one behind in the hope that someone else will enjoy working on it during their vacation time. I love walking the beach and picking up shells, and my friend, Joyce, feels great relaxation lying in the sun on the beach. When the breeze is a bit much, it’s nice to go to the pool there, which is somewhat protected from the winds . . . but still affords plenty of sunshine and relaxation. It’s nice to see familiar faces when we come back year after year.
Good morning, David. Just wanted to let you know that my mother and I have fully enjoyed our time here at Ocean's Reach. The condo is beautifully decorated, perfectly situated, and so comfortable for us. We had no problems at all (only one minor thing - coffee grinder not working...and that is no real problem!). The beach is very nice and it was wonderful to listen to the sounds of the Gulf surf each night. I'm truly sad that we have to check out tomorrow! Thanks again for arranging everything for us. I am certain we will come back!
Our recent two week stay at your condo at Ocean’s Reach was outstanding. We have visited Sanibel many times but this is the first time renting a condo. It was a great experience. The condo provided everything we needed and then some. The view and closeness to the beach were especially nice. The Ocean’s Reach complex and staff are superior to other places we have stayed. We will be back.
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Ocean's Reach on Sanibel Island. The accommodations were just as we had hoped...relaxing, beautiful, tranquil.
Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your Sanibel condo! The location couldn't have been better--close to everything by car or bike, but private and secluded as well. The decor in the condo was charming and up-to-date, and right next to the elevator for loading and unloading, The views of the beach were fabulous! The beach itself was beautiful and loaded with shells--I had to buy two tote bags to bring them all home! And finally, you supplied everything, right down to bicycles, beach chairs, and umbrellas! Most of the other units required separate rentals for these items. We appreciate all your attention to detail and your friendly attitude as well! Thanks so much!! We hope to spend lots of time in your condo again in the future!
Our vacation was awesome in large part to this outstanding condo. There were 4 of us and the two bedroom / bathroom setup worked much better than our last Sanibel stay in a 1 bathroom hotel room. The furnishings, decor, and appliances were all top notch and everything was clean and in perfect condition. Having a washer/dryer in the condo was a godsend with the frequent visits to the beach and physical activities. The 3rd floor location provided a wonderful view of the gulf and some privacy on the lanai. I really appreciated having the quality free bikes provided and we enjoyed many fun bike rides around the island. As for the Oceans Reach complex, the tennis court was newly refinished and was a pleasure to play on. Having an assigned carport was very handy and kept our car from baking in the sun all day. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for convenience, upscale ambiance, and relaxation. I would especially recommend it for families because it allows everyone to have a little private space and time unlike a hotel room. Thank you Dave and Sandy for sharing your lovely home! We'll be back!
I wanted to let you know that our recent stay at Ocean's Reach was one of the best beach vacations we have ever had! The condo was absolutely immaculate and we enjoyed the view of the gulf every minute we were there! To my surprise, my oldest daughter flew in and joined us for a few days. It had been 11 years since the three of us had time alone like that! We will definitely be coming back! Have a wonderful summer and thank you again for your help!
Just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had. Your condo was perfect in every way and we were delighted when we saw it, there was everything we could have needed, with a view to rival anything else we have seen! The bikes were great (we used 2 adult ones and went to Billy's for the kids). We found some wonderful restaurants, and even better sunsets! Thanks again for everything, we hope to be back one day! We will also recommend you to any of our friends heading to Florida.
Your condo at Ocean’s Reach provided THE most relaxing vacation I’ve had in years! The location on Sanibel is just perfect – out of the Periwinkle Way bustle, but accessible to everything. The condo was so well appointed that, by the time I left, I felt I had been living there for months. It was great to be able to use your bikes and beach chairs, after flying in from Chicago. Finally, your condo’s situation in the complex is ideal – high enough up to avoid the foot traffic to beach and pool, but with beautiful gulf views. I was happy to book immediately for next year!
Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much we enjoyed staying at your condo at Ocean's Reach! It really was like paradise and was the exact quiet R N' R that we needed! The weather was unbelievably perfect the entire week - I did not expect it to be that hot in October, even in Florida. The wildlife was amazing! We were so lucky to get there on the Sat. night just before it got dark and the view when we opened the condo hall door, took my breath away!! Sanibel is really a special place! You have created a really beautiful home there - I hope you and Sandy get to enjoy it often! Hopefully we can come back - soon! Thanks again for sharing your home with us
We had an AWESOME time on vacation at Sanibel. THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping us get our reservation at Ocean's Reach. We LOVED the complex!! So much better than Pointe Santo. We WILL be back to Ocean's Reach. The unit we stayed in was incredible. I'm glad we took your advice and booked that unit. The view was stunning. One day we happen to see a waterspout. That was neat to see. Not a few minutes later, they broke into TV to issue a warning for the waterspout. We also had the pleasure of seeing 102 sea turtles being born. We sat by the nest all week. Our last day there, they hatched and the conservationists were there releasing them. That was very neat to see. I've attached a picture for you to see. Thank you again for all you did to help us. We really do appreciate it.
Mark and I had a wonderful time at Sanibel and Oceans Reach. You were right--it was a fabulous condo complex and it exceeded our expectations! We had a great week and would like to go back! Thank you again for your help in getting us connected with the nice condo (3B3). Next time, though, we'd like to stay longer. A week hardly seemed long enough!!
I would just like to let you know that when we stayed at your apartment in Sept/Oct we had a really wonderful time. Everything was just as your website described and we were thrilled to bits with it all. We had perfect weather, the dolphins swam past daily and the Island/beaches were beautiful, our daily bike rides were wonderful We have all agreed that we would like to go back asap as we are missing it! The staff at Oceans Reach were really nice and when we had a problem with the washing machine they were super efficient. Happy Thanksgiving!
Yes that would be fine with me, I have written a report on Tripadvisor as well. It is quite a risky business booking something from so far away and as i said we were all delighted with the accurate description.
Your place is AWESOME! And so is the Florida weather this week. We are enjoying ourselves and we thank you for letting us stay in your condo. You were right in your ad, there is everything we need for the kitchen, and your blender makes great margaritas!
Great location!!!!!!! we we so impressed with the entire complex as compared to where my nephews wedding party was staying! Waterside Inn was awful! We will be back! My son asked his girl to marry him after we left on Monday. The storage shed filled with beach amenities and bikes made our stay even more enjoyable. Thanks!

Getting to the Sanibel area
Sanibel Island is a barrier island connected to the mainland by a causeway just south of Fort Myers. It is most conveniently reached via the South Florida International Airport which is located in Fort Myers and is an easy twenty minute drive to Sanibel.
Alternatively, you can fly to Sarasota or Tampa which are approximately 100 miles to the north.
Reserve Your Next Sanibel Vacation!
Sanibel Island is a tropical paradise located near Fort Myers, on the Gulf Coast of Florida. If you are looking for a South Florida vacation and you like world-class beaches in a relaxed tropical environment, Sanibel must be on your list of vacation destinations.
For the beach lover and sun worshipper, there is an endless beach producing a new harvest of shells with each new tide. Sanibel is known as the shelling capital of the world. If outdoor sports are your priority, enjoy the three island golf courses and several championship courses nearby. Tennis courts are available at no charge and there are miles of bike paths on Sanibel on which you can explore the Island. For the nature lover there is the Ding Darling Wildlife Sanctuary offering rare sightings of tropical birds, alligators and other wildlife. There is also The Bailey Tract and Tarpon Bay which have nature trails, mangrove canoe trails and other interesting exhibits.
Sanibel Island was first settled in the 1800s, and until well after the turn of the 20th century was a sparsely populated, agricultural settlement. It was mostly known as the home of the Sanibel Lighthouse, a historic site that still stands today. The Lighthouse was built in 1884 and was the last manned lighthouse in the US. Today it is a well maintained historical site adorning the East end of the Island and surrounded by hiking and bike paths.
Sanibel maintained relative obscurity until the 1960’s when a causeway was built connecting it to the Ft. Myers mainland. Because of the Island’s recent establishment as a convenient vacation destination, it benefited from strong zoning, preservation of natural resources and the environment and strict control over commercial development. This has resulted in a building plan that preserves the tropical beauty of the Island, and preventing the overbuilding that occurs in many other locations.
I hope this introduction intrigues you to learn more about Sanibel and our vacation paradise.
