Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We are from 'brrr' Minnesota and our family has owned this condo for over 40 years. We are realtors with Edina Realty and we understand what people want in their living environment. We used that expertise when re-building after Hurricane Charlie.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean's Reach:
We love Southwest Florida's climate and environment. We can relax in the peace and quiet of paradise. Coming here is always like coming home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
On site management is the most friendly and professional anywhere, so unexpected problems are quickly solved. 19 steps and you are on the white sand beach with millions of seashells. We like going out to eat, so the multitude of restaurants of all types is a plus for us, plus a movie theatre as well as a live theatre (in season), shopping and 26 miles of bike trails. Bike to the library, go to 'The Grove' and grill dinner, while watching the osprey nest. Tennis, on-site bike rentals, and Gulf-front heated pool are just some of the amenities available.
