About Mark & Julie Campbell

We live in Indiana but just love Florida. While visiting earlier, we began looking for property to purchase for future use. We stayed at the hotel here in The Resort & Club at Little Harbor and fell in love with this area. The rest is history and here we are.

Mark & Julie Campbell purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Mark & Julie Campbell chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We chose this community because it truly is a quiet, private, off the beaten path treasure.

What makes this townhome unique

The benefits are awesome here. You can do as much or as little as you like. The area offers tranquility yet is within 1/2 to 1 1/2 hours of everything. Busch Gardens, Lego Land, Disney, all Tampa and St. Pete have to offer, shopping, restaurants, theater, golf, airports, outlets, etc. It is right on Tampa Bay and has incredible sunsets and absolutely amazing weather.

Guestbook comments from the owner

April School Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent April 2016 school vacation here. We loved the condo, it was well maintained and the furnishings were up to date. The layout was perfect for us, we had two adults and four teenagers. It was a short walk to the private beach and pools. It was in a nice quiet location away from all of the hustle and bustle, the drive to Tampa was less than thirty minutes.

The owners checked in with us before we arrived as well as during and after our stay to make sure we were happy. Our security deposit was returned immediately after our return home. Any questions I had for them they immediately responded to.

I would highly recommend staying here.

If we ever return to the area we would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much Mark and Julie!

Misleading pictures and , terrible view.

  • 1 of 5

Description and pictures are very inaccurate and misleading. The view is terrible, nothing but trees. Beware the "damage deposit" as no matter how clean and undamaged you leave the property and follow the "cleaning" instructions your "damage deposit" will not be refunded. This is just extra charges the owners are tacking on.

Owner's Response: Our overall rating is a 4.6 out of 5. 99.99% of our guests rate us at a 5 or 4 out of 5. Our goal is to have our guests completely enjoy their stay in our home. We know that for most folks the investment in your vacation is important to you and we want your time at our home and resort to be absolutely pleasurable. We took the pictures of our home ourselves so we know they are very accurate and not at all misleading. We do ask that all guests treat our home with respect as they would their own home. We want our home to be well appointed, fresh, clean, and comfortable for our future guests. We have only withheld a portion of the damage deposit twice in four years. We do not expect to find, seashells in the garbage disposal requiring repair, excessively soiled carpet requiring additional cleaning, brand new bathroom towels ruined and needing to be replaced, pictures broken, the stove left filthy, trash left behind, sticky residue and water condensation rings damaging our solid wood furniture, etc. I contact our guests once they arrive to check in on them and be sure our home is meeting their expectations, and that they a comfortable. I also encourage any comments or questions immediately upon arrival so any guest requests can be addressed. If I do not hear anything from a guest until after they depart, I can only assume our home either met or exceeded their expectations during their visit, which is our goal. 99.99% of our guests love our home and take good care of it during their visit.

Very relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here. The condo was very nice, beds comfortable and watching the manatees swim from the living room and balcony was a treat. We could walk to the beach, pool and two restaurants and caught a beautiful sunset from the beach. We are definitely coming back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for writing a review on our home. We appreciate it when folks enjoyed their stay enough to take the time to write us. The resort is very clean, easy to get around in, and safe with plenty to do. Our home is newly decorated and in a great location. If you prefer a quieter setting with a private beach but within minutes of Tampa, Bradenton, Sarasota, and St. Petersburg, our place may be the perfect location for you. Tourist type shopping is plentiful in Anna Maria Island and Bradenton, as well as Sarasota and St. John's Pass. We are grateful to be able to share our home. Regards, The Campbells

Christmas Week 2015

  • 4 of 5

We spent christmas at little harbor resort .The grandkids had a blast spent 2 days at the pool and hot tub. Christmas eve evening we all dressed in christmas tee shirts and went and cooked hot dogs ,brats and made s'more at poolside at the fireplace where after that my husband sat and read his Christmas tradition THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS to the geandkids. The security guard for the resort even joined us. The people at the resort were very nice.the man that runs the paddle boards was closed one day put was working on something and opened up just for them. Evenings were beautiful. Mid mornings you could see the manatee swimming out in the cove sitting on the patio.The owner needs to have her cleaning people do a little more deep cleaning like windows bathroom vents cleaning tracks of sliders needs a little TLC. We spent alot of time in clearwater,St. Pete beach and Treasure Inland. Temps in mid to high 80 couldn't of asked for more

Beautiful, but somewhat remote location

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for quiet a place away from Tampa's hustle and bustle, this is a beautiful three-floor condo in a huge resort complex in the Tampa suburb of Ruskin. It was nicely furnished and well appointed with fantastic views from the master suite (on the third floor) and living room (on the second floor). We had an issue the first night with a rattling attic fan, but the owners managed to get a handyman out to fix it the next day (the day before Thanksgiving) and all was quiet thereafter.

The space was a great layout for the three adults and two kids. However, the stairs from the front door to the main floor are a bit daunting if you have someone who doesn't do stairs well (at both ends of the age spectrum). We were very comfortable for our four-night stay and the owners returned the security deposit quickly.

The property needs a little TLC, but nothing more than a weekend's worth of handywork (e.g., grout/caulk replacement in the master shower, a sticky deadbolt on the front door). It would have also been nice to have some polishing touches to the property (e.g., an extra roll of TP in the bathrooms, laundry detergent so we could run the load of towels before we left as requested, etc.). However, there were a number of stores within a 15-minute drive, so it was easy to stock up once we knew what we needed.

If you need to be close to the city's attractions and amenities, you may want to stay closer into town. However, if you're looking for a quieter getaway spot, this is a nice place to escape and relax.
