About Jeff

I own a real estate company in the Tampa area. I live very near here and love to fish and boat.

Jeff purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jeff chose Ruskin

I bought this as a weekend get-a-way for me. It will be used occasionally by me, family and friends. This is my favorite waterfront area in Tampa Bay. There are some excellent grass flats fishing for trout, snook, redfish, flounder, and deeper water fish as well, such as grouper, and this is some of the best fishing in the bay area. You can also fish from the private pier here. They have a marina where I keep my boat, and I'm in the open water in minutes. Another important factor, area is very secluded and quiet, and the sunsets are some of the most beautiful you will see.

Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as shown in the pictures. Spacious, clean and nicely furnished. The first day there we saw the dolphins playing in the water. Jeff was accessible and shared all the great things to do in the area - would definitely stay here again!

Very Nice Condo with great views.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for a few weeks in June 2012. Room was very clean, well equipped and the 50 inch TV was a plus.

Spent a lot of time on the balcony overlooking the water and the pool. Great views!

Owner is very accessible and very friendly. I hope to be staying here again later on this year. I highly recommend this condo.

Condo at Little Harbor -Ruskin

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for a couple of weeks in April. We couldn't have asked for an easier and more relaxed stay. The unit was clean and comfortable & we enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings. The proximity to the pool & other amenities was excellent. The view of the waterway & the sighting of the manatee & dolphin were an added bonus.

Resort staff were extremely helpful with directions to shopping, dining, etc. The owners were very accessible and any questions were quickly answered.

We would definitely rent this unit again & look forward to another stay at Little Harbor, Ruskin.

My stay at Little Harbor

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for over one month and loved every day of my stay. The room is clean and has nice amenities. The balcony has a view of the water. The unit is less than twenty feet from the swimming pool. The grounds are well maintained by the management staff. You couldn,t ask for a better piece of Florida. I would highly recommend this unit for a single person or a couple. I will probably stay here again in the future.
