We really enjoyed staying here. So clean, comfortable and well equipped. We love walking around the harbor and beach each morning.! Thanks for having us.

Thanks Dawn for your nice comments. I am glad your family enjoyed our town home and the resort. I have found it myself very relaxing walking or jogging around the resort especially in the mornings. I also like to practice my yoga on the beach, the 250 feet pier or the gazeboes by the water. Late afternoons are equally enjoyable as you can watch amazing sunsets while enjoying drinks or supper at the tropical beach tiki bar and you could dance at the live music played by different bands every night. I hope to have you back soon. Mary Yousif.
Copied from our VRBO # 432241 webpage... We really enjoyed staying at the townhome in Little harbor, Ruskin, FL. Very cute townhome which accommodated my family and my parents. We were traveling with a 17 month old and had all the amenities that we could need. They provided us with a pack and play,a high chair and even a baby tub. The property manager Vincent was great and gave us good recommendations as well. Very nice and quiet place. Would definitely recommend it.

*** OWNER'S RESPONSE:
Thanks Arani for your comments. I am glad you used all the available equipment for your baby. We have tried our best to equip our town home with everything a family will need. We want our guests to file at home. We are also very lucky to have Vincent taking care of our town home, greet our guests and be available for anything they need during their stay. We are looking forward to see you again in the future. Mary Yousif.
Copied from our VRBO # 432241 webpage... Everything about this property was 5 star. The kitchen is well stocked with plates and silverware. We loved having breakfast in the morning on the deck watching the birds on the river. The online pictures tell an accurate story on what to expect. The beds are very comfortable. The resort amenities are top rate. There is a great beach with rental umbrellas and loungers available, as well as water toys (Kayak, Jet skis, others). Dinner at the Sunset Grill gave a fantastic display at sunset (although you might avoid karaoke night on Monday). We were there off season so crowds were not an issue. Location is reasonably close to Tampa, Clearwater beach, Anna Maria Island, and others. All in all a great stay. 11/25/2019 at 1:56 AM.
*** OWNER'S RESPONSE: Christopher, we appreciate your nice comments and thank you for providing an excellent description of our town home and the resort. We and our kids are looking forward, every time we come to our town home, to using the swimming pools, the gyms, the tennis, the basketball and the volleyball courts, enjoying the wildlife from the two balconies and admiring amazing sunsets from the balconies, the beach or while having supper or drinks at the Sunset Grill. We will be happy to have you back. Mary Yousif.
I would recommend this townhouse to everyone. So beautiful and close to the beach. We are relocating so this was convenient for us so we could explore the area.

Lisa, I am glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our town home and Little Harbor. We have done our best to equip our town home with everything a family needs to feel at home. Starting from the well-equipped kitchen to the comfortable mattresses in the bedrooms and elegant furnitures in the living room and dining room. In addition, Little Harbor provides a very relaxing environment with all the amenities, restaurants, water sports and amazing sunsets. Warm regards, Mary Yousif.
The perfect place to unwind
From the moment I booked until returning home to the UK Mary has been the perfect host. Quick to answer any emails and deal with any queries, which I am happy to say there were none during our stay. This is due to the lovely, well furnished , immaculately maintained home Mary offers. For a family of four adults it felt spacious with plenty of amenities in the kitchen. I was lucky enough to secure the fabulous master suite with beautiful views from the large balcony where the sun stayed on all day long and plenty of wildlife to see. Having never ventured in this area before, little habour was perfect. It’s a lovely friendly community where you could enjoy morning walks to the beach along pretty walkways, or evenings for the spectacular sunsets. We took advantage of the gyms and fishing although not the swimming pools due to the weather turning cooler. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mary and her home for your well earned holiday, and I hope to return myself in the future. Best regards Karen.... and family :-)

Thanks Karen for your comments. I am really glad you have enjoyed your stay at our town home. I agree Little Harbor is a very pleasant and friendly community that provides a lot of amenities and our guests can enjoy nice walks among the palm trees and flower beds, and around the graphic harbor and the beach with the boardwalk and the 250 feet fishing pier. These are the things we are enjoying ourselves when we stay in our town home. I hope you visit us again. Mary Yousif
