About Lesa

We are married, live on a lake in Maine 7 months of the year. Winter months we spend traveling around Florida. We are semi retired and live in this resort in another Townhome we purchased after we bought this one. We loved the resort so much. We have relatives in Florida, so between all of us we will be able to take care of the property the way it should be taken care of, very upfront, hands on & personal.

Lesa purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Lesa chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We bought this townhouse for ourselves, family, friends and others to enjoy, We fell in love with Ruskin and with Little Harbor last year when we visited for a few months. We loved the resort so much that we decided to buy with hopes to rent to people who will love it as much as us and also to help pay the expense of owning a townhouse in a Resort.

What makes this townhome unique

All the amenities are amazing, you can do as little or as much as you want to do. The area is oh so quiet but still within 1/2-1&1/2 hours of everything. Disney, Busch Gardens, outlets, airports, golf, theatre, restaurants, shopping. And it has the most amazing sunsets and the weather is incredible.

nice property

  • 4 of 5

Condo was nice and well furnished. Wish there were grills closer to the property--had to walk about a half block and we only found one grill to use.

Lovely spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

We returned Saturday from our week at Little harbor and were sorry to have our trip end. The condo was great and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The view from the balcony of the marina and canal was wonderful. We saw dolphins on several occasions. We also saw the manitee from behind the homes across the street. My grandchildren loved it. The 3 pools and 2 restaurants on site made it very convenient when we doesn't want to get into the car to go out to eat. We also loved going to the beach for sunset. We have some incredible pictures and memories of our week.

We would definitely stay here again.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Ruskin to spend Thanksgiving this year with family in the area and had a most enjoyable and pleasant stay. We encountered a couple of minor issues during the stay - not unusual to have happen - and we found the hosts to be very quick to respond to issues and extremely accommodating to all our needs. They even provided extra pie pans so that we could bake the pies at the condo in advance of the big group at our niece's home. We found the unit to be clean and well cared for and furnished very nicely. There is adequate parking in the area, which came in handy as for two nights we had three of our cars at the condo. There is plenty of food shopping nearby, requiring an auto, but a couple of restaurants and bars close enough to walk to. I did not use the pool or hot tub area so I cannot make any comment about that aspect of the area. On of the big advantages of this unit is that all three of the bedrooms are completely suitable for adults, with queen mattresses and reasonable space. I would definitely recommend the unit and would gladly come back in the future.

Lovely Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family of three young adults, my husband and I stayed in the townhome the week of Thanksgiving in order to share the holiday with my brother in Ruskin and other family members in the area. The location was great not only for visiting our family, but also for recreational outings. It was only a short drive to Tampa, St. Pete or Bradenton. We enjoyed visits to Fort De Soto, the De Soto monument and surrounding park and trails, and Bradenton's Coquina Beach. The townhome was clean and bright, and was beautifully set up with every convenience. The resort area had a lot to offer. We all came in one car, so my "kids" were without transportation. Not once did I hear, "I'm bored." When we older adults were enjoying some downtime, they were able to find things to do in the resort area without needing to drive anywhere. And....the weather was perfect! In summary, we had a lovely stay!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four, 2 couples, stayed here for the month of March 2015. This was our first time traveling to the Tampa Bay area and our first experience with VRBO. Lesa, the property owner, and the Little Harbor Resort staff were responsive to any question or concern we had during our stay. We were very pleased with our accommodations as were the family and friends who joined us during the month. With three bedrooms and three full baths, everyone was comfortable. The marina view balconies were especially delightful. We made frequent use of the resort's heated pool, hot tub, beach area, the pier and walked/biked by both marinas daily to watch the wildlife (manatees, dolphins, birds and fish). The thoughtfully fitted kitchen in the townhouse made meal preparation at home easily accomplished. The two on-site restaurants, Sunset Grill and Hook's Bar/Grill, made eating out a convenient option without having to drive. Nearby favorites included the Manatee Viewing Center, Yabor Grill, and Circles Restaurant. Golfing at Apollo Beach Golf Club was challenging and affordable. The strawberry sundaes (in season) at Goodsons Farm close to Sun City were a highlight as well. We made a number of day trips from Little Harbor to Bradenton, Sarasota, St Pete, Clearwater and Tampa. We are happy to report a wonderful VRBO experience with Lesa and Little Harbor, and look forward to a second visit!

Spring break

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this townhome. Absolutely everything was supplied that we might need. We have rented at other locations and needed to purchase supplies. The home owners were extremely easy to contact with quick responses. The home was clean and comfortable. The area had many amenities. We enjoyed the pools, fitness centers and evening walks along the marina. Views were spectacular. I would highly recommend this townhome for future renters.
