About Susan Cannata

We grew up in Tampa. Moved to Houston to go to law school. We always wanted a place to come back to and now we have it. The fact that we can do as much or as little as we want really appeals to us.

Susan Cannata purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Susan Cannata chose Ruskin

We decorated and furnished this property the way we like to have things done when we travel. It has a beach vibe and is extremely comfortable.

What makes this townhome unique

This complex is centrally located to many activities in and around Tampa. It truly is a hidden treasure.

The awesome sunsets are what really sold us on Little Harbor. Also the fact you don't have to leave the complex unless you want to is great.

Luxury town home

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed here after being at Disney world. The town home was AMAZING!!!! It was so clean....even the bedding smelled good! The view was awesome as well. The beach was clean, lots of shells for my daughter to collect. We rented a golf cart from the marina to go back and forth from the beach and pools. I would highly recommend this to other renters, it kept a lot of sand out of our car! I emailed the owners with questions and they were very quick to respond. We will definitely go back!!!!

Little Harbor Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to go to Florida. Little Harbor far exceeded our expectations. The condo is beautifully decorated and very clean. It offered everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony each morning and evening to watch the sunrise and sunset. Little Harbor is an amazing resort. The local amenities are great- restaurants, pools, marina, store and a beautiful relaxing beach. The tiki bar in the resort had a great band and atmosphere. We also traveled outside the resort to enjoy Cuban food and experience the night life of Ybor City. Siesta Key Beach was a wonderful day trip. So much to do.... We can't wait to come back and bring the kids!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Little Harbor has really been taking off. Every week there are more and more people enjoying everything from the tiki bar to the great restaurants. I really love the fact you don't have to leave to enjoy yourself.

We had such a good time spending the 4th of July weekend here! We didn't spend much time inside during the day since we were at the beach or the pools most of the time. The house is decorated really cute and we enjoyed the code entrance rather than worrying about a key. The area is just so cool...I liked having restaurants and a store in the complex without having to leave, but we also left and found some great places. Thanks for letting us come, I hope we can come back!

May Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The condo was an excellent place to spend our vacation. It is nicely decorated with a beach theme. All three bedrooms have flat screen tv's as well as the living room. All the bedrooms have balconies with exquisite views along with the balcony on the main living floor. We enjoyed the food at the restaurant on site and relaxed at the pools. The beach provided a great sunset view and a great place where my daughter was proposed to. There is nothing like sitting out on the beach in a comfortable chair next to the fire pit and listing to the waves roll in.

There as so many things to do in the surrounding area. The location of the condo made it a great starting point for the places we visited. I would definately recommend at least one visit to "Circles" on Apollo Beach - great food! We also visited the beach at Sarasota. Now I know why it was voted as the #1 beach. Beautiful is not even a word that can come close to describing it.

Little Harbor is a place a would definately recommend. It will always be a special place to me. I hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: Janice,
Thanks for the kind words. We work very hard to make sure all our guests have a great experience when they stay at Little Harbor. There is a lot of activity going on right now in the complex. There is a new restaurant scheduled to open in June next to the pool and there is a new store open by the tennis courts. The tiki bar continues to be a favorite place to hang out, with live music several days a week.

Our stay here was better than average, but we could not give it an overall good rating. The condo is furnished nicely. We were the third group to stay at the condo or so we think. All of the furnishings were new and the condo was decorated nicely. If you are expecting to vacation at a resort, this condo and its location are not exactly what you will want to rent. The Little Harbor Resort is not a “resort” in the truest sense of the word. If you want to use the beach and if you are able to do so, you should bring your own beach chairs and umbrella and would need to drive there, as it would be too far to walk caring all the equipment. The beach is not in your backyard as the pictures would lead you to believe. Unfortunately, one of the pools and one of the hot tubs were not operational. This pool and hot tub happened to be the closest to the condo.
We were very disappointed in the town of Ruskin. If we wanted to eat out, we traveled away from the resort to do so. We traveled anywhere from an hour to 10 minutes away for a restaurant meal. The tiki bar and restaurant on site were good, however, one can only eat at the same restaurant so many times. Don’t miss the fried seafood at The Fish House on Shell Point Road. We traveled a lot during our time at the condo. Sarasota and St. Petersburg are nearby and offered a lot of activities.
We must say that Susan was an attentive and helpful owner. She answered our questions promptly and attempted to make any problems we experienced “disappear” as quickly as possible. Some things are not in her control and she is aware of that.
We were there from March 1 through March 30 and overall enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: The complex has multiple pools and hot tubs , tennis courts, fitness center, private beach, pier, tiki bar, two marinas, indoor restaurant, sports bar and grill and an outdoor patio restaurant all of which are within walking distance from the townhome. Sounds like a"resort" to me. If you want to bring your own chairs and umbrella you will probably want to drive. Many people use a golf cart. Unfortunately during this tenant's stay one of the pools required an immediate repair but the on site management got the pool and hot tub up and running within a few days. Ruskin is in a transition phase from small rural town to new suburban homes. If you want to be in a heavily populated area with lots of traffic then this area is not for you. But if you prefer a quiet location within minutes of Bradenton, Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa at less than half the cost of the crowded gulf beaches you may want to give "Little Harbor" a look. The tenant was in fact our third tenant as the condo is for all practical purposes brand new.The furnishings are also new and we attempted to provide the"little things" that are often omitted in a condo such as patio furniture on the balconies, a Keurig coffee maker,a fully furnished kitchen, stereo with I-pod dock and cd player and flat panel televisions.Sun City Center and Apollo Beach are 5 miles down the road with many restaurants and shops.

Excellent Stay at Little Harbor

  • 5 of 5
We booked this townhome for the Month of February 2013. This townhome worked out great for our family, including 2 small children, my husband and I, as well as my parents. Having the different levels helped with privacy and gave everyone their own space. The owners did a great job furnishing this new place, each bedroom has its own flatscreen, plus the one in the living room. Cable and wi-fi all ready to use. We really enjoyed all the amenities available at Little Harbor, like the pools (the pool deck at the high rise was our favorite), beach (great for exploring too), tennis courts, and restaurants. (Wish it had a kid play area, but we still tired the kids out!) This area is not overly touristy, but still had plenty of great restaurants, grocery stores, golfing, spas nearby. And for a short day trip you can visit the outlet mall (20 minutes), Branden Mall (very nice, has kid play areas 25 minutes), Bradenton Beaches (30 minutes). Also went to the Red Barn Flea Market (great produce). We also visited Disney (1.5 hours travel time).

The unit was very clean upon arrival and the owners are very accomadating. We had to leave unexpectedly for a funeral and Susan was so understanding. The beds are very comfortable and the place has enough supplies to get you going.
