This is our second visit to Ruskin and we rented from the same owners for two weeks. We LOVED this unit and it was exactly as advertised so no surprises. Cool, clean, great "beach" decorating. A well stocked kitchenette with a fridge and....wait for it.....a beverage fridge! These folks know how people want to vacation. You are literally a one minute walk to the beach, two pools, hot tub, Tiki Bar and the lovely Sunset Grill. Little Harbor is incredibly well maintained and staff very friendly and helpful.This is definitely the place to chill and refresh yourself, especially if you're on a budget. Jen is a peach to deal with and the owner very helpful and hospitable. We hope to be there for a full month next year!

People with Disabilities,
We spend 4 weeks at the little harbor with our 2 dogd. It was for us a paradise. The studio was more that what we were expected. Jennifer the contact there was always there for support. We already booked for an other 2 months next year. A nice place to discover. My husband was able to fish directly on the site without always have to pay for fish travel and the restaurants around were very good. We were also surprise to see manhate and daulphin in the river in the back of our studio.

The owner/mgr was very friendly and helpful from the get-go. The original unit's AC was out but we never had to deal with that because we were moved to a better unit with AC before we arrived. The location is a very pleasant and quiet condo/hotel resort with great sunsets. A little out of the way to get to but the price was great. Kitchen and Lavatory were well appointed/stock and very clean. Excellent King bed. Easy walk to bar/restaurant/beach area which had very friendly wait staff; the place even had Stella Artois lager on tap. The nearby Fish House Roadside eater/take out was real Florida all the way. We rented a canoe at the nearby county park for $25 and paddled with the Manatee's in the mangrove lagoons. This was a great way to spent a morning with nature before heading into SRQ. We had good fun...Thanks!
We arrived at Little Harbor for a short visit after seeing family., We could have used a few extra days though we relaxed, enjoyed the live music at the Tiki. Our room was nice great for the two of us. If your looking for a busy nightlife this is not the place but you can drive over the bridge to St Petes for the day. After going through traffic, shopping, sightseeing then go back to Little Harbor to Chill.
We really liked seeing wildlife in the Bay and everyone was friendly. The beach is relaxing they do need to put out more chairs with umbrella's and if they had beach service someday that would be an extra plus . We will be back they are going though more updates which only will add to the property with a few more eating choices and a little shopping. Fish House and Ybor Gril just down the road they have great food.. nothing fancy .. that is not why you go there but great food.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed yourselves and relaxed :-) Thanks so much for the tips :-) Hope to see you again ... Thanks!
Loved the area since its in a private, secluded area. The studio was very nice and clean. Only complaint was that the fitness area wasnt open due to repairing stairway and the hot tub wasnt available since that pool area was closed. Other than that it was good.

Tourists without a Car,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed the room and area, and we sincerely apologize about the hot tub and exercise room. It's unfortunate they decided to do the repairs on both at the same time, eliminating both as opposed to one at a time. Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us at Little Harbor, and hope you will come back again.
We decided to stay here along with two other couples who were renting here for the month of Feb. 2013. Jen worked with us since this was a newly purchased unit and provided the king bed and sofa we wanted. Everything was great and newly renovated. Everything worked great, the room was spacious for the two of us, easy to make simple meals and we even had a fish fry with our friends outside on the picnic tables near the tennis courts. Jen was great and we only had a couple of questions, but she took care of them right away. We rode bikes, played tennis, golfed, used the pool and explored with our friends. We were very comfortable staying for a month in this unit! Thanks Jen for making it a great stay, will stay here again if we get the chance!
