We stayed here this past week and it was a amazing condo! It was decorated so beautifully and was by far one of my best vacations ever!! We had a back ocean view which was wonderful and we also hadn't nice view of the one pool. Our two kids had so much fun and I can't wait to come back!!

We have been going to SSRC for 6 years now and love many aspects of this complex. From the location to the well kept grounds, we continue to enjoy our two week stay here year in and year out. The staff is always very pleasent, the units clean, and the pools are well kept. However, over the past two or... More

The apartment was very spacious and exactly as described and pictures, It's a big space with a fully loaded kitchen. Plenty of counter space and drawer space in the bathrooms. Decent lighting. Wish it had a balcony, but our clothes and towels dried on the rack in the closed porch. Loved the luggage carts and grocery carts to help with... More

Super place. 2 outdoor pools. Do not rent beach chairs, there are plenty of lounge chairs for use. You just cant take the pool chairs to the beach. We had to return ours. We rented through the main office, plenty of rooms to select through the website. C302 was nice. Will return there again if we go back. Sleeps 6... More

I spent one week in SSRC with my family (2 adults, 2 children) in August 2014. It is important to separate the property from the units, since some of them are rented privately and some are rented through the property management company. I would suggest you go with the managed units, if you do so then the desk can help... More

We have stayed at Sarasota Surf and Racquet several times without issue. This time we were in Unit T1106. The unit could use some updating. Also the unit was not clean. Hair on bathroom walls and sand caked on floor by main door. I do understand there is a lot of sand coming into the units but for the price... More

I'm writing this to give a different perspective. We have taken our boys to this condo for 9 years straight. Over the past several years we have brought our parents, friends & made some amazing memories at Sarasota Surf & Racquet. We always have stayed on the 1st floor of the Y Building, it is the best you know. Trust... More
