This month, tennis pros are gearing up for the final grand slam of the season—so why not close out your summer (or plan for down the line) by booking a house with a private tennis court? You can practice your volley and backswing in the morning, and be lounging (potentially poolside) by the afternoon.
With amenity-rich homes across top destinations, scoring a vacation rental with a tennis court is simply the ad-in—there’s plenty to see, do, and explore in every locale to round out your sporty tennis getaway. Dare we say, you’ll love-love it?
So pack up your sweatband, restring your racket, and check out this round up of six ace Vacasa vacation rentals and tennis resorts to live out your U.S Open dreams. After all, you only live once, but you get to serve twice.
This expansive vineyard estate in Northern Sonoma County is bar none when it comes to getting sets in during vacation. In addition to boasting a personal wine cellar and lap pool, the 70-acre grounds also feature a 13,000-square-foot sports complex to host some friendly competition.
Going straight from playing the net to playing in the pool is easy in this home’s lush backyard. Though you won’t get in a full-size game on the home’s newly added pickleball court, the five-acre gardens and expansive outdoor deck more than compensate for narrower sidelines.
We couldn’t resist sharing one more pickleball court, because how often do you get to practice your stroke with sweeping views of the Puget Sound? At this charming lakefront cabin, you’ll have to be extra careful with lobs and unforced errors—or someone may have to row out for the ball.
Nestled along California’s Redwood Coast, this vacation rental is primed for outdoor entertaining. With spacious, landscaped grounds that house a full outdoor kitchen—complete with multiple grills, an oven, and a refrigerator—players can easily refuel after a good rally.
Since you can perfect your tennis game from anywhere, why not head south to the sunny beaches of Costa Rica and practice a little R&R, too? Not only does this six-bedroom villa have sports courts galore (bocce, too), but it’s also outfitted with two private swimming pools and beach access.
Last, but certainly not least, we’d be remiss not to include our award-winning tennis facility just outside of Destin, Florida. While you won’t have access to a purely private court at this family-friendly resort, the premier tennis club and setup—with outdoor lights to play through sunset—makes it one of the best tennis beach vacations.
