Made from 99% pure quartz, the sand is a soft, flour-like texture and is cool to the touch.

At Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club you will enjoy our two spacious heated swimming pools. One is conveniently located in the courtyard area with easy access from all of the buildings and the other is on the beach, overlooking the azure blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We also feature a fitness center and four, on- property tennis courts: two clay tennis courts and two Lackold tennis courts. We offer tennis programs, lessons and summer camps through our association with 'Total Tennis.' Another popular characteristic is our beach side barbecue grill and picnic area - it doesn't get any better than cooking, eating and playing on the beach!

About Lynn Hock

Hi folks, I was originally a snowbird from Shelby Twp, Michigan. My family visited many vacation spots in Florida but when we visited Siesta Key, we knew that we found the most beautiful place in Florida. We knew that this is where we were going to retire. We bought our Sarasota Surf condo in 2001 with the idea that we would like to live there after we retired. In the meantime, we rented it and people loved it so much that we decided to keep it as a rental and buy a residential condo close by.

Lynn Hock purchased this condo in 2001

Why Lynn Hock chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We bought our Sarasota Surf condo because that is where we wanted to live. The complex was a premier, beautiful complex and we chose our condo because it was ground floor with easy access to the beach, pool and parking. No waiting for elevators. We paid a premium price for our condo because it was in the most desirable building within the complex. It was closest to the beach and pool.

What makes this condo unique

Being on the ground floor, you are a part of nature. When we were looking for a condo to buy, we stayed at many condos on upper floors. We found that on the upper floors you lose touch with nature and all that is Florida. You end up looking over the roofs and air conditioners of neighboring condos. On upper floors, you don't hear the ocean, see the palm trees sway in the breeze, see the beautiful flowering bushes. Being on the ground are a part of nature and all that is going on around you. Plus, the easy access to everything makes it seem like a home not a high rise condo.

Family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been traveling to Siesta Key every year for over 20 years. It is our favorite vacation destination! Over the years we have stayed in various homes and condominiums. This year we were lucky enough to stay at The Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club, and not only is this complex very nice but Lynn , the owner of the condo we rented, is amazing! This property is very well stocked with towels, chairs, sand toys, kitchen supplies etc., it has a beautiful view, and has a very convenient location to the beach and pool. We also had the pleasure of meeting Lynn and once she realized we were there with our family, she dropped off corn hole boards for us to use and also offered other various baby items for our grandchildren! She made our vacation get away so welcoming and home like! We will be renting from Lynn again on our next trip and this time we are staying 2 weeks! Thank you Lynn!

1st Trip to Gulf Coast

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular beach--the location could not have been more perfect! It didn't hurt that the weather was sunny every day with the ocean temperature being 78-80 degrees. My husband and I were there for the whole week with 3 adult children joining us midway. Plenty of room for all and even after purchasing 3 airline tickets and renting a car for the week, it cost us less than the Jersey Shore! I would HIGHLY recommend Lynn's place!

This is our favorite spot! The unit has good mattresses, beautiful views, easy 1st floor access, lots of beach toys, games to play and a kitchen stocked with all of your vacation needs. The beach is the best in the US with a heated pool and grill to watch the sunsets! The safety and security of this condo is an added bonus. We will continue to rent this unit for many years to come!

Missing the condo and beach already :(

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay very much and would recommend your condo to anyone/everyone!!! We had other family rent from the resort directly and they were impressed with the amount of supplies you had provided to us, they didn’t have all the amenities that we had, so again thank you!!!!!

Owner's Response: HI Kathy, Thank you for your review. I really appreciate your mentioning the amenities I provide that are not provided in other condos. I really try hard to provide everything a guest could want except for food. I go to the condo every week and make sure it has all the basics. Thanks Kathy Lynn

Siesta Key Plus.....

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at this "perfect" condo at the Sarasota Surf and Racquet Club. The location of the unit is great, so close to the pool, beach and parking. The condo has all the necessities and then some for a really comfortable stay and feeling like home. The owner is such a professional, personable and responsive person and a pleasure to deal with. Hope to add an additional week or two in March in the future. Looking forward to next years stay already !! Sincere Thanks!!!
