LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION are 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 the Island, 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.
With 1000 SF of living space, the unit comfortably accommodates up to 6 people. The screened lanai overlooks the short walkway to the beach and the Gulf. There are many amenities, typically found only in premier properties. These include being professionally decorated and furnished throughout, with solid surface kitchen and bath counter tops, 42” HD flat panel TV and DVD player in the living room and 25” flat panel TVs in each bedroom, ceiling fans in all rooms and the lanai and reliable, hi-speed, wireless internet access.
We make personal and family use of the condo 6-8 weeks each year. As such, we furnish, decorate and equip the unit to the standards required to make it a comfortable second home. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances. You will also find an ample supply of dishes, cookware, utensils, dishtowels and other kitchenware to meet all your needs. The dining room comfortably seats six and opens to the living room, the lanai and the spectacular ocean view. The master bedroom has a king bed and there are twin beds in the second bedroom and there is a sleep sofa in the livingroom. All linens and towels are provided and there is a washer and dryer in the unit. We try to include as many staples as possible so you don’t have to run to the store as soon as you arrive and don’t have to buy a month’s supply of something for a one-week stay. These include items like soap, toilet paper, dish and laundry detergent, paper towels and much more.
The complex has 64 units in 4 buildings, located on a quiet, secluded dead end street. Its midpoint location on the Island makes for a short drive to Periwinkle and the center of Island shopping. Exterior amenities include tennis courts, heated swimming pool, gas grills, shuffleboard, basketball court, covered parking, beach chairs and other beach games and toys. We also have four adult bikes available at no additional charge. The beach is famous for the variety of shells that are found and the surf is generally gentle and slopes gradually, making for a great swim area, especially for small children. 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.
WHAT TO DO
Without question, the greatest attraction of Sanibel is its beach. While other beaches may have better or more sand, higher dunes or other favored characteristics, there is something about the total tropical experience of walking the beach at Sanibel. The combination of magnificent views and a shoreline that brings a new population of shells with every tide is rivaled only by the grace and beauty of the pelicans and gulls in the sky. The dolphins playing in the surf produce a serenity and solitude that is unmatched anywhere.
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 on the four bicycles provided at no charge. 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 Track, Tarpon Bay which has nature trails, mangrove canoe trails and other interesting exhibits and many other preserve lands.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Kitchen has everything you need, very clean, great view. Oceans reach is right on the beach and the shelling was awesome
Everything was fantastic. Perfect location. Everything we needed was provided. Would love to come back
Great oceanfront condo
Beautiful view inside and outside of the condo! Enjoyed drinking coffee on the lanai
Condo was clean, beautiful, nicely furnished and roomy for our family of four. We arrived late (after midnight) due to flight delays but “check in” was super easy. Loved our view and easy access to beach. We found so many beautiful shells which was great fun. Ocean water was not as clear or blue as we expected due to red tide. Condo was convenient to Jerry’s grocery store, good restaurants, etc.
Beaches were amazing and the accommodations were perfect. We will definitely be back!
My family’s experience at 3A3 at Ocean’s Reach was wonderful. The condo was fully loaded with everything you would need, immaculate and the views of the water from the master bedroom and lanai were astounding. We had picture perfect weather and loved collecting seashells every day,
Swimming in the pool, and Shopping at the local boutiques and just having family time.
We can’t wait to go back.
Thank you, Dave and to all the staff at Oceans Reach.
Great location,, great staff, great view!
We loved every moment of our stay! It was just as good or even better than the descriptions. Don’t hesitate to stay here!
Our stay at Ocean's Reach couldn't have been nicer! The condo was lovely- charmingly decorated and very comfortable for a family of 5. It is situated just steps from the beach with a great view of the water. We fell to sleep each night with the sound of the waves and woke each morning, brewed our coffee and watched dolphins cruise by while we sat on the lanai. The sunsets each night were spectacular! We utilized the complimentary bikes- easily rode to many of the fun spots on the island. Beds, linens and kitchen supplies were top quality and the Ocean Reach's staff was very friendly and accommodating as well. Dave, the owner, was very easy to work with- we will be back for sure!
Would definitely stay here again!
I’m very pleased with our experience at Ocean’s Reach! From what I could tell, all the buildings face the Gulf, giving you wonderful views from inside the condo, especially from the screened-in porch. I hadn’t been on Sanibel for 29 years, and the condo was pretty much what I expected. Some may want something fancier in this day and age, but we didn’t go for the condo - we went for the beach, Gulf, shells and pool. Don’t get me wrong - nothing wrong with the condo! It had the best stocked kitchen I saw during our two week vacation. It wouldn’t have mattered what you wanted to cook or bake, they had utensils and pots/pans for it! I loved that they had games and books in the condo too. That was typical when I was a kid visiting, and was glad to see the tradition continuing. There were convenient places to rinse your feet and shells coming in from the beach, the pool area was nice and has a great location in that the Gulf can be seen on the other side of it. I liked that the pool area had rules that enhanced everyone’s enjoyment of the area. While we didn’t play tennis while we were there, there was a court and the condo had some racquets and balls. The staff was fabulous! Lisa and the rest of the staff bent over backwards to make sure our visit went smoothly for us, and were quick to fix a couple of problems in the condo. Red tide was an issue during our visit, but on the plus side, the beach was pretty empty, which suited me just fine. I also liked the fact that Ocean’s Reach wasn’t some humongous place. It had a small, personal feel to it. We stayed at another condo for a few days while on island as well, and if/when I make it back, I’ll be staying at Ocean)s Reach, no question!
