We just returned from our second trip to Holiday Surf and Racquet and the results are pretty much the same for the property. Easy, clean, great location, Scott has the chairs and umbrellas up early, and on and on. The room was not as up to par as the first room we stayed in. This time we were in 701.... More

We stayed in unit 106 last year and are returning again this summer. Being on the first floor was very convenient with small children -- we were able to walk right out the screened back porch to the pool and the board ramp leading to the beach. Clean, sugary sand and calm seas made for great trips to the beach,... More

We, ve stayed at this property many times for the past 24 years. Condos are nice, clean, well decorated, right on the beach. We, ve always enjoyed it. Now policies have changed. You must pay half the bill when you make your reservation., the other half one month before you arrive. Pretty outrageous!! Other properties nearby don, t do this.... More

My husband and I stayed at HSRC the first week of May. Check in was easy. Rooms were clean an adequate. This is an older property, but is well maintained and a good value. The beach was clean and plenty of room to relax. Pool is small, but adequate. Location is near the end of Holiday Isle and very quiet.... More

The view, the beach, the water, is so gorgeous here. We love to go in May and October. The water is crystal clear turquoise blue, and the sand is white with plenty of seashells washing ashore to pick up, along our walks to the jetty. The decor in the condos are usually very nice, but since they are all owned... More

But the condo is nice, and conveniently located. Our unit was decorated tastefully and accurately reflected on the website. I was worried about the view given the... More

Didn't care for the condo or the balcony. I didn't like that the balcony was screened in. It was impossible to get pictures from your room of what would have been a great view. I also didn't like that the condos were in a V shape. This kept you from seeing the sunrise and the sunset. The cooling system was... More
