About Carrie Smoot

We moved to Florida to escape the cold and for work opportunities. We love it here! Matt works full-time in real estate, and I stay at home with our busy, young family. We are here to help you have a wonderful vacation in paradise.

Carrie Smoot purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Carrie Smoot chose Ruskin

The first time my husband and I came to Little Harbor we instantly fell in love with the place. The sunsets from the balcony won us over and having a place with plenty to do for our entire family was really important to us. Walking around the marina, with the boats on the water is totally breathtaking. Eating at the Sunset Grill on the beach is also an experience we wish we could enjoy every night of the year! We also quickly noticed how close Ruskin is to so much of what Florida has to offer. We are closer to Disneyworld than Cocoa Beach, but so much closer to Busch Garden, which my family enjoys even more than Disney. If you need help planning your vacation, please call me as I can give you some great tips for sights to see.

What makes this townhome unique

Being a short walk to the beach where you can watch the magnificent sunset and hunt for seashells and relax with our feet in the sand is definitely what made us fall in love with our Little Harbor townhome.

Little Harbor condo stay in Ruskin , FL

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family get together at the Little harbor condo. When arriving we felt very comfortable and happy to find how clean and tidy the condo was. The cable tv and internet was nice especially the rainy day that we enjoyed there. We loved the restaurant and small beach that we were able to walk to the following day. My kids loved it and I'd recommend it to anyone young or old. Look forward to returning again...

DIRTY

  • 2 of 5
Our family was so excited about coming to Florida for a wedding, and this Townhouse seemed like the perfect place to lodge for the four days we would be in Florida. All the reviews spoke highly of this Townhouse, except for the review titled "Do Not Stay Here." I called the owner to discuss this review and was assured that the place was spotless and that it would be checked again prior to our arrival. Not so!!!!

Listed are issues we encountered: We had to search for towels, no toilet paper, floors dirty, windows dirty, downstairs tub stopped up, Dining room seat had to be tightened, NO INTERNET Connection, Ceiling fan in family/living room has chunks of dirt (filthy), Dusty picture frames, kitchen dark (there were light bulbs under the sink but we didn’t want liability), shower in Master - the grout needs cleaning, as well as the shower door,
toilets were loose and stained, tubs were just rinsed and not cleaned, dishes were put back in cabinet without being washed (coffee stains, food, lipstick), silverware dirty with food stains. We had to clean before we unpacked.

I told the owner and she apologized, however, it was a terrible beginning to our stay. We also had no internet connection the four days we were there. The owner says it was due to the storms.

Overall, it is a nice place to stay other than being dirty. The owner said she has since hired a new cleaning crew and plans to check their work. This should solve the cleanliness issues.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, our cleaner's husband was dying from heart failure and was in the hospital the week prior to your arrival and performed a very basic cleaning. Following your comments we have since hired a new cleaning team.

Do not stay here

  • 1 of 5
We were very disappointed with this stay. We have stayed at Little Harbor for years with our family. My parents and sister rent the same time and we usually have the best time. This condo was not in the condition we are used to...chipped paint, the counters were dirty, stained carpets, stains on the linens and not enough towels( not what we are used to at other units.)We still tried to make the best of it. I had to repeatedly call and e-mail this owner to get instructions to enter the condo and finally received them early morning of arrival. On day of checkout, I went next door to my sister's condo and realized I accidentally had a towel so I walked back over to give it to the cleaning person. I left the unit at 11am, the cleaning people arrived at 11:45am and left by 1:15pm. At 1:29pm on 7/19 there was a e-mail with an additional payment of $120 for damages which were stained grout in the kitchen and stained carpet. Meanwhile, I cleaned prior to leaving, stripped the beds, wiped down counters and ran the sweeper like I do every year. I couldn't believe it. I should have taken pictures upon my arrival. The owner called and left a message that she wants my credit card. This has been a complete nightmare. I have never had this happen in years past. Do not work with this owner and if you do....take pictures to protect yourself.

Owner's Response: Dear Christa,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and provide feedback. It is always helpful to hear from guests. Unfortunately, you are the first renter we have ever requested funds from to cover any kind of damage. I live 15 minutes away and check-up on the condition of the townhome, bring supplies, and ensure satisfactory cleaning on turn days. I have pictures of the townhome following your departure. Additionally, we have the carpets cleaned and townhome professionally painted twice each year and had the carpets cleaned two weeks prior to your arrival and the townhome painted within a month of your stay. Let's call and discuss. Thank you Christa!
Warmest Regards

Very nice Condo, Loved the place

  • 5 of 5
We loved the condo and enjoyed visiting with our Adult Children and grand-kids. the pool is great and the Tjki bar was always entertaining, with local musician, karaoke. We could have a few drinks and then walk back to the condo with no worries. Plenty of people to take you out for a fishing trip at the harbor if you so desired. Everything we needed was in the resort so we didn't have to travel anywhere. We ate at the Hook a couple times and at the Seaside Harbor twice, both were really good. The Seaside harbor had a great view of the bay and the skyline of St Petersburg while dining.The condo was very clean, like we were the first people to stay there. The kitchen was perfect for cooking, and even the kids thought it was the best place we ever stayed. We have been doing this for 10 years in Florida. The Owners were prompt, when we needed anything. ( our GPS got us lost upon our arrival and Carrie talked us thru getting to the condo and stayed on the phone until we got there). We had a problem with the washer and she took care of it the same day. Very nice Condo and Very nice Owners. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks so much, Carrie
