My wife and I had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful townhouse. It had all the comforts of home including TV’s in each room as well as the living room. Added attraction was Netflex in the living room and the resort offered everything that we needed,. The Sunset Grill offered some really great meals and the fish and chips at The Hook was really good with a great atmosphere. They also offered karaoke and live music nightly at the Tikki Bar. Circles is a wonderful restaurant and is only 15 minutes away.

We found Carmen the rental owner very caring and accommodating.

Little harbor is approximately 30 minutes to Clearwater, St Pete’s and Tampa. Disney World approximately 1 hr 15 minutes.

My golden retriever loved the pet beach. Water was so calm. Watching the Manatees; from the balcony was awesome..

Our only regret, our stay was too short.

Definitely will book this home again for a longer stay, and will recommend it to family and friends.

My wife and I recently spent a week in the townhouse and loved it! The home was clean, well equipped and has a great location. Pool and beach are close by, the marina was fun to walk around. We were a bit surprised by the humidity, but AC and pool were just great to cool off in. We would definitely return to this location and townhouse.

Thank you Carmen and Mark!

The kitchen had everything we needed and the townhouse was spotless. We had a light go out and Carmen (host) sent someone right away. I would definitely recommend this townhouse to my friends and relatives. Rental owner Carmen is absolutely fantastic. She went out of her way to ensure my stay was comfortable and enjoyable.

All activities within walking distance. Will definitely be back for a longer stay.

The condo itself was fine. The rest was deceiving from pictures.

  • 2 of 5

The property manager made us uncomfortable and was creepy. He is weird and not good at relating to guests. They don't tell you until after booking that you have to pay a weekly electric bill. The beach was dirty and disappointing. Decent pier for fishing. The community itself was safe and quiet. Offers a small gym, pool, and 2 small restaurants. About 35 minutes from the closest coastal beach. The town of Ruskin is depressed. No good shopping or eating options.

Owner's Response: Hello Tom, I apologize that you had an unpleasant stay and experience with the prior on-site management. We have recently transitioned to New Management, which began on July 1st and we recognized the concerns you've expressed and the individual you are referencing is no longer with the organization as we severed the relationship 1 week into the transition. We now have a skilled Property Manager in place with over 10 years of Quality-Service Property Management. We recognize that we cannot undue the past, but should you wish to give us another opportunity in the future, we'd love for you to reach out to us personally so that we can reassure you of the recent changes.
During this stay the property was under previous owner or management.
