Just doesn't get much nicer than this if you want a week of relaxation right at the shore. Units have fully equipt kitchen. The beach is right outside the window. Staff could not be nicer.

Sanibel has many miles of bike paths so you go just about everywhere by bike, and you can rent leisure bikes right on property, or go to one of several bike shops if you want a multispeed bike. Also, lots of hiking in land preservation areas, kayaking, boating, etc. If the weather is bad you can go to the island's movie theater, or drive over to Ft Myers, about 20 minutes away, to find shopping, movies, bars, etc.

Room Tip: Buildings are 4 stories high...and all rooms have water view...none are bad.

This was our first trip to Sanibel and chose Oceans Reach due to the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! The office staff was wonderful, finding us a 4 night rental as that was all the time we had and just being there for anything we needed. We stayed in 3B2 and the pictures on the website are just as they are in the condo. Some have said the kitchens are small but we did not go to Sanibel for the kitchens! We ate breakfast in every day and had two dinners sitting on the lanai and we had no problems. Very well kept grounds and very quiet except for listening to the waves! Having on site bike rentals was also a plus as we rented them for 3 days and rode over 10 miles each day on the wonderful bike paths throughout the island. Saw dolphins swimming just off shore and the shells are unbelievable. We now have our home when we visit Sanibel and we are already planning next years trip.

I simply love Ocean's Reach. Our family returns every year to enjoy a lovely condo just steps from the beach. We especially enjoy the lanai with a beautiful view of both sunrise and sunset. In fact, every condo faces the beach so it doesn't even matter which unit you select. If you go to their website (www.oceansreach.com) you can see the interior of every unit, each with its own charm. The office staff is especially friendly, and they'll make you feel right at home. You'll also find a lovely grilling area surrounding by native flowers and butterfly bushes, and even a pair of nesting Osprey. One of my favorite things to do on Sanibel is to hit the bike trails -- and you can rent a two-wheeler right on site. No trip to Sanibel would be complete without seashells: We've combed the entire island, and it turns out Ocean's Reach is also the best location for shelling. Still haven't found that Junonia though, so I guess we'll be heading back next year!

Room Tip: Corner suites have extra windows. Also, we tend to prefer units away from the pool because it's...

Family vacation with husband, Mom, Daughter and friend. First time in Florida and Sanibel so beautiful and restful. Perfectly quiet other than the waves on the beach. Quiet days of beach walking and sunning. Dolphins sighted off shore-along with a shark one night. Probably best not to swim at dusk/feeding time. Ocean was too cool to really swim in, which made the heated beach-side pool an extra special treat. Found a million shells, of course. Ocean's Reach made everything really easy. They were helpful and kind, the unit was clean and well appointed. I would want to stay in the same unit when I return.
We did carry-on only for our flight-if you do this don't buy a snow-globe as a souvenir or it will be confiscated by TSA. That sucked my daughter was really bummed to lose it.
Walked through Ding Darling-tons of birds and a gater.
Drove to Everglades for an airboat ride-it was fun-once was enough. Don't have to do it again. Saw a couple of gaters and that was cool.
Teens went parasailing and that was awesome. It looked really fun and what a beautiful view for them too. Loved that!
Jerry's is pricey-better to hit Publix on the way to the island and grab groceries-you will save 30%.
I loved Sanibel and Ocean's Reach. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: I loved 1D1, it was very private and had direct access to the beach. Loved the decor and location-re...

We've been coming to Sanibel for 5 yrs and this is our first stay at Ocean's Reach, because we couldn't get the dates and beach front at the place we usually stay....(once you stay beach front you'll never go back), now we'll never stay anywhere else since we found Ocean's Reach! They were flexible on our dates, we arrived on the Friday before Christmas and leave New Year's Day....All of the condos are beach front... hard to find... and this stretch of the beach is fantastic! It's less crowded than most stretches with tons of condos, plenty of shells, and has a perfect view of the sunset every night! Our condo was in great shape, nicely equipped and decorated and even bikes came with it in the storage shed. Plenty of beach toys in the shed and even covered parking. The Grove with grills and tables is perfect for a family gathering or just grilling, shuffle board, tennis and even basketball, all equipment easily accessible on site. They even have their own library. A washer/dryer in each unit and carts to help you get your bags in was a real plus. We loved the location as it is easy access to anything on the island being off of Casa Ybel...even if you need to drive when traffic is heavy you can detour around to Tarpon rd, or go straight to Periwinkle where there's always a policeman directing traffic during peak periods... so no long waits.

The staff were so friendly and we are so excited we've found a new place to stay! There's a router in each unit so for the 'can't live without wifi' fans no issues, which we've run into in the past at other places. If you want complete serenity choose one away from the pool as you can hear the noise during the day... but happy children playing in the pool has never bothered us :D Ocean's Reach has such a nice tucked away feel and we loved that! Can't wait to come back!!! Best Christmas and New Years memories!!! Many have said that it's more of an older crowd but there were lots of families here during the holidays...our storage shed had plenty of beach toys for kids.

Room Tip: We loved the 4th floor...view spectacular! Just a note to know: There is an elevator at the corn...
