I'm a true Surfrider Beach Club fan! I come several times a year to kick back, enjoy an 'old Florida' low key nature vacation, and leave the job stress behind.

We came on an exchange in November '08 and liked it so much we bought a week, such a lovely place can't wait to come back this November

I've been an owner at Surfrider for 28 years! It's my piece of heaven on earth. The people are always so wonderful. The up keep of the units over the years is awesome. Thou I live in Florida I still love to vacation in Florida.

I've heard of Sanibel 40 years ago. Why did I wait this long to check it out? Great website.

This year was our first experience at the Surfrider and it was amazing. The people are welcoming and friendly; the property and accommodations are beautiful. We are coming back next year and looking into buying a unit of our own.

Great job on the new website Jackie! Such a crisp and clean new look and such a big part of our new vision of making Surfrider better than ever. Keep up the good work and I wish you, the staff and all our owners,guests and renters a very healthy and enjoyable vacation at what I have called paradise for almost 21 years.

The weather was picture perfect. The fishing was better than I've ever experienced. We caught redfish, sheepshead, flounder, mullet, Spanish Mackerel and a couple of small black tip sharks, all from the beach! On Thursday night, we had our first "annual potluck dinner." Guests gathered around the poolside tables and enjoyed a feast of food as well as great company.

Always great to reconnect with our Sanibel friends every summer (sad to lose one of those special people last year). Had another great 2 weeks at Surfrider this year. The weather was superb. Thanks to all the week 31 folks who organized the potluck-what a great idea-hope the tradition continues. Wishing all a great upcoming year-until we meet again...
9. Debby said on 8/11/10 - 06:06AM
Had a great week as usual at Surfrider and hope to continue the new annual potluck next year. Sad to loose one of our "family" last year. Hope to see everyone next year.... Hope you all get to see the pictures.

Paul says you need a sunrise photo from the beach. We will have to send you one. We have lots of them.

We had a fantastic week at Surfrider this year - our 10th year and can't wait for next year to return to our little bit of paradise - week 20 is the best!! Best wishes to everyone who knows us - Jean & David (from the UK) P.S. Have posted a photo of Flo and 'Midge'. Flo sadly passed away earlier this year - we missed her very much

Thank you to all of our friends at SRBC- I appreciate your kind expressions of sympathy - prayers, hugs, beautiful cards sharing your memories of Pete enjoying the pool or smoking a fine cigar! We will continue this tradition as a tribute! Pat - Sweet Pea

This was our first visit to Surfrider, but it won't be our last! This place is great! Beautiful grounds, right on the beach, bicycles, beach chairs, wi-fi, everything you need is right here. Staff is very accommodating

ive been staying at surfrider for the past 3 years over 4th of July, and its a great place for family and friends to go to. we go shark fishing,swimming,play on computer, play in the sand, ride bikes etc. I hope we come again next year!
24. John and Peggy Currie said on 5/5/12 - 06:04PM
We are original owners, having purchased unit weeks in 1980. This year's visit was amongst the best. The Surfrider beach is perfect and it is located about a miles walk from the lighthouse. We were bummed one day because we had high winds and storms, but it was followed the next day by one of the most marvelous days of shelling! What a place! We love the club and have so many terrific memories of activities and times spent there. You want to relax? This is the place.
25. Betty and Joe Zabukovec said on 5/29/12 - 06:46AM
We have been coming to Surfrider for over 12 years and now are very happy owners of 2 weeks at this well kept location. Kudos to the staff and yard-crew for giving this place that "old Florida" feel. Can't wait for next year! Renting is a great way to start to enjoy what Sanibel has to offer.
26. The Carlsons said on 6/21/12 - 05:35AM
Owners for nearly 30 years, continue to be impressed at how well the property is maintained. Like the way that improvements have been made without compromising the "character" or "charm" of the experience. Nice job to all!
27. Sarah Alexander said on 11/25/12 - 02:51PM
Just returned home today from yet another wonderful experience renting at Surfrider. We absolutely love staying here, and highly recommend this resort. The facility itself is beautiful, and everyone is warm and welcoming. I really hope we'll be able to visit again soon.
28. Maureen Treece said on 8/21/13 - 08:18AM
Love Surfrider, our home away from home. We love seeing our week #47 family each year. Toast to the Turducken!
29. Denise Bell said on 12/20/13 - 07:38AM
It's December 20 and it looks like we'll have a white Christmas but I'm dreaming of our next vacation to the Surfrider in May 2014! Come on spring! We love Sanibel and the Surfrider is a wonderful little gem. Happy New Year!
30. Paul Minnock said on 12/21/13 - 07:37AM
Had a great time as always this year Week 50. Big improvements on the Bathrooms and Kitchens, Beautiful Gardens and a Great Staff ! The place looks great! Caught a Big 8lb. Large Mouth Bass on Lake Okeechobee. Played Horseshoe's on the Beach. Awesome Time !!
31. Delbert/Brenda Nutt said on 2/18/14 - 02:16PM
We were there for Week 5, 2014, what a beautiful place, friendly people, excellent pool and spa area, wish we were there now. Sanibel was amazing also, loved the bike riding.

Only 349 more days... but who's counting? Such a relaxing week, as always.
33. Marcy Z said on 4/4/14 - 03:28PM
Cannot wait to get back down! It has been too long since my last visit to paradise!
34. Susan P said on 5/22/14 - 06:27PM
It is always a pleasure to vacation here. Laid back and easy is the best way to describe it.
35. Jennifer said on 11/19/14 - 06:19PM
My grandparents built the Surfrider and I grew up staying in their house on the property right through college for many vacations. The place looks great! Wish I could get back and rent a unit.
