TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR GUESTS
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 new 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 livingroom 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
on the Island for the past several years. Visit my photo

think we have a combination of location and view that can't

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.
