About Michael Rendas

I am a local resident of Ruskin and that makes all the difference when staying at this property. I am a hands-on owner that takes special care of all my guest's needs and desires. I am the person that you would talk to if ever a problem were to arise, not someone who is solely a property manager.

I moved down to Florida back in 2001 from the Northeast where I was born, grew up and raised a family. I am a working professional who enjoys the many benefits that the Tampa Bay area has to offer and I have fallen in love with this beachfront community of Ruskin. When cruising the Caribbean, I would often dream of being on a perpetual vacation with all the sights and sounds of the tropics - Little Harbor has that feel and this townhouse is situated in an amazing location on this property.

Michael Rendas purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Michael Rendas chose Ruskin

This townhouse represents the best that Tampa Bay has to offer; the proximity to the beach, the water activities, the outdoor dining with view of the bay and nightly entertainment are all here within walking distance.

What makes this townhome unique

The first thing that caught my attention was the view from the master bedroom. Once you walk out onto the upstairs balcony, you will see why. Whether you enjoy a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine, the view of the bay will captivate you. Then you will see what I first saw and you too will fall in love with this townhouse.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Michael for a transitional place for us to live while waiting to move into our house. This was our first experience living near the water and my family enjoyed it! The sunsets were probably our favorite!

The condo had everything a family of 5 needed. It was very clean and well stocked. Thank you again for a fun adventure!

Nice getaway on the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this townhouse. The layout was perfect for our needs (twin beds for our daughters, room downstairs for in-laws). The place was clean, well-supplied, and quiet. The resort is a nice getaway in quiet, rural Ruskin. There's a Publix about 10 mins away. It's about a 30-45 min drive to downtown Tampa or the gulf beaches. FYI, it was about a 5-10 min walk to the resort beach and various pools, or we often just drove to park at the beach with all our stuff. Overall, a very pleasant experience!

Perfect place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well appointed and very comfortable for our family of 4 (plus room for a guest). The downstairs features a bedroom (double/queen?), bathroom, and open living area with dining and kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed including microwave, toaster oven, toaster, blender, and even slow cooker. Upstairs you will find a second bedroom (2 twins), bathroom, laundry, and master suite. All bathtubs were nice and deep especially the garden tub in the master bath (my wife's favorite feature). There are balconies off of both the dining area and master bedroom looking back on a canal and mangroves. Parking is directly below the unit. The condo is within walking distance of a very nice pool (3 in total on property) and hot tub or a slightly longer walk to the beach and beachside restaurant. You can experience some beautiful sunsets there that include an outline of the St. Pete skyline. The entire property is well kept and a great place to stroll with the family along the marina or beach.

The area puts you very close to Sun City if you are visiting grandma or the manatee viewing center in Apollo Beach.

The owner, Michael, was excellent to deal with and very reachable if needed.

We would recommend this property to anyone and look forward to staying again in the future.

Please note that the property does have a two flight staircase leading to the entry door which may be difficult for some elderly or physically limited persons.

Little Harbor Townhome Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here because my cousin got married on the beach very near to the property. This place was perfect for us! There was enough room for the six of us and we had privacy but were still within walking distance of all of the activities. The residence was clean and lovely and Michael was very courteous and helpful whenever I spoke with him on the phone or emailed him. Would definitely recommend this place and would go back there again myself! The only thing that I would say (which Michael did mention) is that one of the bedrooms has two twin beds. But all in all this place was great!

Peaceful getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely end unit that was well-stocked with most everything we needed for a good week. The unit was very clean and comfortable, and the complex was quiet with very little traffic. There was a group of painters/cleaners working in the vicinity during business hours, but this wasn't an issue for us as we were running around a lot during the day. The beach bar was fun and had really good food, and the beach itself was nice and uncrowded. The only issue we had was that we ended up spending most of our time in Tampa or St Pete so lots of driving and many bridge tolls were required, but that was just poor planning on my part. In itself, Ruskin is a quiet and lovely getaway spot - just not a great jumping off point for the other side of the bay. If you're looking for a peaceful beach stay, this is a wonderful option. Thanks!

Great family condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a family wedding with our son and daughter- in- law. The condo had all the that we required, 3BR/3BA, including a spacious second floor Master with a HUGE walk in closet, a full kitchen, washer and dryer and good parking. The second queen room is downstairs and the twin is up so two families can have their privacy. The decks face the waterway and lush green belt, the condo is clean, quiet and comfortable and we highly recommend this unit and would not hesitate to book it again and enjoy all the amenities of the Resort at Inn on Little Harbor. The host is responsive and friendly and he was happy to accommodate our needs.
