Little Harbor offers a quiet beach, 3 heated pools, 2 fire pits, 2 hot tubs, fishing pier, tennis courts, 2 fitness centers, basketball and volleyball. You will have access to all of the amenities listed above. Not all town home owners offer this. Please be sure and ask other owners if you will have access to the Harborside facilities as well.

There are also a number of on water activities such as jet ski rentals, charter fishing trips, sunset cruises and 2 marinas. You really can have it all at Little Harbor. There is abundant shopping at either the outlet mall or the mall in Brandon, each being about 15 min in either direction. The beaches of Sarasota, Bradenton and St Pete are a short drive away.

About Susan Cannata

We grew up in Tampa. Moved to Houston to go to law school. We always wanted a place to come back to and now we have it. The fact that we can do as much or as little as we want really appeals to us.

Susan Cannata purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Susan Cannata chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We decorated and furnished this property the way we like to have things done when we travel. It has a beach vibe and is extremely comfortable.

What makes this townhome unique

This complex is centrally located to many activities in and around Tampa. It truly is a hidden treasure.

The awesome sunsets are what really sold us on Little Harbor. Also the fact you don't have to leave the complex unless you want to is great.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I called this property home for 7 days. It was very accommodating, clean, and well kept. We were greeted with water views of Tampa Bay or the marina from each balcony. We also enjoyed watching a family of manatees play in the canal behind the property while sitting on the balcony. The property was a short walk to the pool and beach area along with the restaurant and tiki bar that had live entertainment and perfect views of the sunset. The owner was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to emails. We will definitely stay here again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property. It was spacious and clean. The beds were so comfy, I slept like a baby! I have never found that at even the nicest hotel chains. Bed linens were clean and of great quality. The entire community was well kept and had fabulous amenities.

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I am always apprehensive about taking my family to a place I have never seen, especially for a week long family vacation a long way from home. No need for apprehension with this place! It was exactly as advertised. The area is very convenient to the finest beaches in America and the entertainment of Tampa/St. Pete. Little Harbor is great even without those other things. The food at Hooks and at the Tiki Lounge/Restaurant was great and very reasonably priced. The pool and hot tub were clean and inviting, and the tennis courts and playground were exactly what we hoped for. The pier near the tiki hut made for a quiet and relaxing evening away from the fun of live music at the lounge. It's close enough to enjoy the music but far enough away to enjoy the lapping of the waves on the shore. I couldn't have hoped for more and definitely will return!

Paradise at the Point, Little Harbor, Ruskin, Florida

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from our second stay at this lovely town home at Little Harbor. Last year we were pleased to find that it was very comfortable and well suited to families or couples. Each adult or couple had a private bedroom and bath, and the kitchen was well equipped (the ice maker in the refrigerator and the Keurig coffee maker were well utilized). Each bedroom had a flat screen television, and plenty of natural light with sliding doors leading to a private lanai. The living room had a large flat screen television, and a larger lanai overlooking an inlet where manatees lingered each afternoon. Little Harbor is a beautiful resort, with three swimming pools, a small beach, restaurants, a playground and tennis courts. We had access to all of the facilities, which was a bonus with renting this suite (many of the other owners do not provide this). We were so pleased with this suite and its facilities that we returned for a second trip within less than a year. We expect to return to Ruskin again, and would not hesitate to stay here. Susan, the owner, was very prompt in answering all of our questions and was very accommodating. I would recommend this suite to anyone who was planning a trip to the Tampa area. It is conveniently located right on Tampa Bay, yet has easy access to the freeway and highways that will take you to any of the many attractions of the Tampa area.

Lovely town home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the town home this past week and it was lovely. The place is really tastefully decorated, with comfortable beds, plenty of fluffy towels, and other nice amenities, and the owner was very responsive. It was clean, and the layout meant each bedroom was separate and quiet (would be great for multiple couples, families with teens, etc). We traveled with our toddler and I was a little worried that the place wouldn't be toddler-friendly, but it was just fine. We do have a town home ourselves, so the little one is good with stairs, and we rented some baby gear including a gate just to keep him from heading upstairs all the time, but otherwise it was very child friendly. There are lots of stairs, so if you have mobility problems I'd definitely look elsewhere! Unfortunately, the wifi only worked the first day, which was a problem as my husband had to do work, but he managed to get by with his phone, some visits to the Harborside Suites lobby computer, and some trips out for wifi. We regrettably we never got to swim at the beach because the weather was horrible for our entire trip, but we did at least walk on the beach. It's small and not the most picturesque (I'd recommend water shoes for little ones because there are lots of sharp sea shells in the sand), but it's got a great view across the bay, and you can't beat the convenience. Be aware this town home is pretty far from any pools and from the main beach/restaurant area (with kids the beach was about 15 min walk). You can drive to the beach but most of the pools don't have close parking areas. We got around that by mostly visiting the closer pool in the Harborside Suites building, which was also the nicest of the 2 we tried and had a great hot tub. Based on my online research I had expected not to find much of anything near the resort, but we were perfectly happy with area. It's true Ruskin is small, but within 10-15 minutes you can get to a few grocery stores, a Big Lots, a CVS, an urgent care clinic (which yes, we had to make use of!) and more. We ate at The Dog House and Ybor Grill and thoroughly enjoyed both, and the Sunset Grill on property was just fine as well, and very kid friendly. We did a visit to the Glazier Children's Museum in Tampa, which was only about a 30 min drive and was the perfect way to spend one of many rainy days. We also visited Clearwater just to walk around--that was about an hour drive. Overall, we were very pleased with the rental and with Little Harbor!
