Elaine was wonderful to work with and provides the extras to make her condo a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Little Harbor is a wonderful place to stay for a relaxing getaway. The resort itself has everything you need. My favorite place is the pool overlooking the bay. Bring your lunch or order the best grouper sandwich ever from the poolside grill. I have been coming here for five years and always recognize the friendly faces.

The condo itself is full of the comforts of home. The beds are comfortable, the towels are nice, and the kitchen is well stocked for dinners in. Elaine has taken great care in decorating the condo with a cute beach theme. You can listen to the birds chirping and fish jumping on the patio. You can also watch the sunrise each morning.

Thanks, Elaine, for sharing your home for a much needed break. I hope to be your guest again soon.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo! The home was very, very clean. We had everything we needed there! We were very comfortable! The location was great for traveling to Tampa attractions & Sarasota beaches. Also, it was just a quick walk to the pool or the local beach area. We ate at the pool restaurant one evening, which was very tasty & convenient! The owner, Elaine, is great at communicating & answers any questions quickly! Such a lovely place to vacation, highly recommend! Thank you Elaine for a wonderful stay!!!

Everything is so close by and you can easily go off for the day and still get back for a swim and dinner. Thanks for your kind compliments we offer our home for others to enjoy with their families while we can't always be there. Come back again Elaine The Beach

Florida's best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time at the Beach for the month of March 2017. It is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need including beach chairs and bikes. The owner was great to work with. IF there is an issue she is just a quick email away

The resort itself has a beautiful beach within a 5 minute walk and two restaurants and a tiki bar to visit for bite and refreshments. It is a nice laid back area with friendly local people who told us of many great local spots to visit such as Circles Restaurant in Apollo Beach, Woody's River Roo Pub and Grill in Bradenton, and River's Edge along the Alafia River in Gibsonton. We enjoyed golfing in Sun City and area only minutes away and shopping at Ellenton Mall in Bradenton which is only 20 minutes away. It was great to buy local fresh vegetables at roadside stands nearby and we found a great local butcher shop in Apollo Beach.

The Beach is a great place to relax, kick back and read on one of the 4 balconies watch dolphins and manatee's in the waterway in your backyard. It truly is one of Floridas best kept secrets.

Spring training ballgames and the Tampa Bay Lightning are only a short drive away.

We're definitely going to be repeat visitors to the Beach

Owner's Response: Thanks for wanting to spend your vacation at The Beach it certainly is a gem undiscovered in FLA we feel so lucky that we found this area. It sounds like you are a very active couple and were never left bored there is so much to do and see in the area. We haven't got out golfing yet but that's on our agenda, you have given some great suggestions of places to go I can't wait to see where you go next year! I work hard to make sure that our guests are happy and if anything comes up I am available. We appreciate guests like you that help us to take care of the townhouse, you are more than welcome back take care until then.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent the month of February at The Beach. We had a great time, spent our days at the beach and relaxed on the decks of the house. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The home owner was available for any questions that came up. We were able to see the dolphins swim by. It is a seven minute walk to the beach and two restaurants. And a "must " is at least one meal at The Fish House.

Great place to enjoy Tampa Bay area!

  • 5 of 5

Great place with fabulous atmosphere.

We had everything we needed. Condo was beautifully decorated and fully equipped.

Surrounding area quaint and laid back.

Only suggestion is to share that there are stairs...into condo and bedrooms are upstairs.

No issue for us...but could be for others.

Otherwise...ideal spot.
