GREAT CONDO AT LITTLE HARBOR RESORT, RUSKIN, FL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were visiting family in the area. The owner was a delight to work with. The condo was outfitted with just about everything one would need for a week's stay -dishliquid, dishwasher packet, bath soap, etc. Couldn't have asked for more! Would go back in a heartbeat.

PERFECT CONDO FOR OUR FAMILY OF FOUR

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to be able to get to Busch Gardens, Clearwater, St. Pete, and Siesta Key. Little Harbor was a central location to be able to get to everything we wanted in under an hour. (Well, Clearwater was a little further).
The unit itself was clean, attractively and comfortably furnished, and the resort had plenty of on site activities including the beach, marina, tiki bar, pools, and the Sunset Grill. We used the fitness room several times before starting our daily activities. Our mornings were started by cooking a delicious breakfast in our own kitchen and I took full advantage of having the washer and dryer to be able to clean the salty water and sand out of our beach attire. My two sons, ages 11 and 13 shared the second bedroom and my husband and I found the King size bed to be very comfy. Two large screen tvs, but no HD reception-but that was ok because who goes on vacation to watch tv? Free wifi too.

Ruskin itself is definitely older and out of the way--the only chain store/restaurants were Dollar General, McDonalds and Hardees. Up the road in Apollo Beach you will find a few more restaurants and grocery stores and about 8 miles away is a Walmart. We did however, drive 20 minutes to an excellent outlet mall. Additionally, if you want to enjoy the beaches, you'll find beach towels and in the garage you can find beach chairs, and a rolling soft sided cooler that allowed us to pack snacks and lunches.
I wouldn't hesitate to rent this again. The owner was super responsive to my inquiries and booking this was very simple. We got our security deposit back almost immediately. The rate was much less than any other 2 bedroom unit in the resort. Seriously, why would you pay more when you get so much here?

STAYED FOR THE BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR DRAGON BOAT TRAINING CAMP

  • 5 of 5
The townhome was comfortable, immaculately clean, pleasantly decorated, and thirty steps from where our boats were docked. We loved the Sweetbay grocery store but also shopped daily at the Little Harbor convenience store (they had almond milk!). We used the Smoky Joe bbq daily, but do bring bug spray - the "no-see-ums" are relentless!

PERFECT FOR OUR NEEDS

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week at this condo. It was nicely decorated and spacious, perfect for our family of four. My best memories were sitting on the balcony off the master bedroom in the sunshine having breakfast before my teenage children woke up. Truly a sanctuary for us. I would rent it again without hesitation.

SUPER TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The smaller bedroom was perfect for our kids when we pulled out the trundle bed, & I loved that they had their own bathroom. They loved that there were so many balconies in the unit & running up and down the stairs! Having a kitchen & laundry facilities came in very handy. We used the garage to store all our beach toys instead of for parking since we just had one vehicle. Just watch out for those crazy little crabs in there! :o) We also used the entry at the bottom of the stairs to leave all our sandy flip-flops. We used two of the pools (there are 3) & the private beach & had fun at all of them. You can walk or drive to the pools & beach. My in-laws live about 15 minutes away & it was great to have our own space instead of cramming into their 2 bedroom condo. For us, this place was a great deal. We would have no problem staying here again and probably will if it's still on VRBO next time we come back. The only negative thing I can think of is that the bathroom counters are very high, so we had to buy a stool so our youngest could reach the sink. We also came here during off-season, so there were no crowds at the pools & beach. It was good for us, but I don't know what it's like during the high tourist season to compare for you.
