About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 3 Sleeps

This is an island -style getaway...

Completely refurbished. Privately owned, and privately managed.

Great waterfront view to wake up to. There are 2 pools, one heated, both overlooking the water. The beach, restaurants and tiki bar just steps away. Sit on the private patio and watch dolphins, just steps away from fishing out the front door or from the pier. Beautiful sunsets. Truly one of the most peaceful resorts that you will ever visit.

Our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable!

  • 4 of 5

The place was really great! We didn't have any luck on fishing from pier or out front of our room but loved the early morning view of sun coming up.We liked the location and such a short walk to restraunt if we wanted to eat out and enjoy the sun going down over the water while dining! The only change that was needed is a light under the sink in the kitchen area!

Owner's Response: Thank you and we are so happy that you were pleased with the unit and enjoyed your stay and even though you didn't catch anything you still enjoyed your time hopefully next time there will be a lot of fish bitting. Thank you again for letting me know about the light that has been corrected as soon as you told me. Hope to see you again.

Much needed place to go....

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Florida for the task of closing down our deceased father's apartment. We were in need of a calm, relaxing place to come to when we finished our business each day. This is the 7th time we have stayed at Little Harbor in the efficiency units. The unit was clean and very accommodating. The kitchen was equipped with any appliance you needed to catch a quick meal in the unit. The bed was comfortable and the evening sun did not beat down on the unit's patio - which made sitting outside very relaxing. The owner was great to deal with - they responded to any email sent withing hours. We have dealt with owners who post they will respond within 24 hours....How difficult that is when you are trying to communicate to have to wait 24 hours for an answer. These owners were right along with us when we had a need to communicate- that makes SUCH a difference. The side of the building this unit was located on looked over the waterway which was quite active over Labor Day weekend with boats going in and out of the marina. We had fishing boats, yachts, even paddle boarders pass by - along with an occasional dolphin. Some aspects of Little Harbor's property are showing wear - hot tub was not operational or warm and the pool had a great deal of debris in the bottom. A storm had passed through 4 days earlier - but there was no one attempting to correct the problem. Should we ever find ourselves back down in Ruskin, Fla - we would attempt to re-book with this owner / unit.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Ruskin for a family reunion and we choose this property as our "home base." The whole complex is in such a nice location, water all around. This condo, though not very large, was perfect for our needs. It was clean and welcoming. The bed is very comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to rent in that area. Though we didn't spend much time at the complex, I noticed the pool and restaurants are centrally located to the condo. It offers everything you could possibly need. Check in and out was super easy. Yes, we will stay at this place again!!

Enjoyed our stay! Very nice condo! We saw dolphins swimming right outside the room! We also enjoyed fishing every evening in front of the condo where we caught catfish, sunfish, and 2 small sharks. My son loved that! Memories for life! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We will do it again!
