“The great and the not so great ”

We are a family of five and stayed in this rental for a week in June. The home itself is gorgeous and luxurious and offers views of the bay and dock behind the unit. There are three bedrooms as well as a pull out queen sofa in the living room. There is a lot of space with three bedrooms, living room, dining area, kitchen, 2.5 bathrooms, a couple of porches... an affordable and luxurious accommodation for a family or small group. The not so good are two things: 1) you have access to the complex facilities which include a couple of pools, grills and fitness center, as well as a small beach. This is all good to have but all are rendered nearly unusable due to biting, blood sucking bugs that are in attack mode once you step out of your house. We walked to the fitness center which is a little less than 1/4 mile and I would have 4 or 5 of them on my legs. Tried a second time thinking it was just bad timing and happened again so ended up driving to fitness room thereafter. Also began using bug spray but had little affect. The kids went to the pools but would jump in the water to avoid them only to have them all over any area not in the water like their heads. Could not use grills because of the bugs. And 2) Tampa is rather spread out so the drives from Ruskin tend to be an hour or more with traffic and there is little to do in Ruskin area. Clearwater beach was 90 minutes for us each way and Busch Gardens was 45-60 minutes each way. None of the negatives are the fault of this rental; just two experiences we had that affected our stay. We also had problems with cable, reception was bad and mostly not watchable. Contacted Muriel and she said this happens after storms and gave me someone to call. I called this gentleman who told me I need to call cable company to set up appointment - not something I should have to do as a renter so no cable for the week which was okay as we were out most of the time.

“Home away from home!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We thought our vacation was ruined due to tropical storm,however, the townhouse was so comfortable, so big. There was room for everybody to spread out and enjoy the rain and the amazing waterfront views from the 4 balconies of this beautiful townhome. We watched movies, played board games, cooked some good food and made the best of being rained in. The townhome was very well stocked, clean, and organized. Muriel went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. I cannot thank her enough. The rain lifted and we were able to enjoy the many outdoor activities available on property (jet ski and fishing) as well as visiting Universal Studios and Siesta Key Beach which was a short distance away. Would definitely rent this property again.

“Excellent Family Vacation”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful vacation. The townhome had all the comforts of home and was a great resort for my family. Its centrally located to everything we wanted to do. I would definitely rent from Muriel again. Everything was great!

“Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This vacation rental was fabulous and truly fit our multi-family needs. (My husband and I stayed at this townhouse with our adult children and grandchildren.) The owner is fabulous to work with and typically responded within hours to my questions before renting the unit, and as we prepared for our arrival. Our extended family liked it because Little Harbor is off the beaten path and quiet, while at the same time, close enough to Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater, and other cities so our family members could do as much, or as little as they wanted. In other words, those that wanted to go and do, did so, and those that wanted to use the pool and private beach at Little Harbor stayed behind and relaxed. Lovely sunrises, sunsets, and we loved the atmosphere at the Sunset Grill right there at the Little Harbor complex.

“Lovely”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our vacation to Tampa for a family wedding was wonderful. The 3 bedroom townhome in Ruskin in Little Harbor Resort was a great place to stay. The distance to the Gulf beaches were reasonable and coming home each night to the spacious home was great. The space is great and little harbor is a decent resort. Did not use the beach there as its more of a bay beach but many others did. There are nice pools and both of he restaurants had good and service. The master bath and bedroom are awesome. The three balconies were utilized by all. There were some complaints on the bed mattress quality but I myself slept well. You do need to supply TP< paper towel and all staples of food so be prepared when you stay. We did lock the remote in the garage with our vehicle the first night not realizing that there was not a key pad to resent. The property manager was prompt on resolving this issue. The townhouse and resort are recommended by me. It was our first time to rent a home instead of hotel and we are going to begin looking for these types of unites for future trips. Thanks for the website and helping to make it a great week!

There is a startpackage available at check inn and toiletpapier. However this is a privat owned home not a hotel so if you run out you can buy it at our small groseryshop in our resort. Just a short walk
