About Mark & Julie Campbell

We live in Indiana but just love Florida. While visiting earlier, we began looking for property to purchase for future use. We stayed at the hotel here in The Resort & Club at Little Harbor and fell in love with this area. The rest is history and here we are.

Mark & Julie Campbell purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Mark & Julie Campbell chose Ruskin

We chose this community because it truly is a quiet, private, off the beaten path treasure.

What makes this townhome unique

The benefits are awesome here. You can do as much or as little as you like. The area offers tranquility yet is within 1/2 to 1 1/2 hours of everything. Busch Gardens, Lego Land, Disney, all Tampa and St. Pete have to offer, shopping, restaurants, theater, golf, airports, outlets, etc. It is right on Tampa Bay and has incredible sunsets and absolutely amazing weather.

Incredible Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything I could have hoped for! I stayed with 3 of my Aunts and there was more than enough room! Each of the bedrooms were very good sizes and each had it's own bathroom with a shower. The place was equipped with anything we could have ever needed!! Hair dryers, blow up mattresses, a pack and play for a baby, beach toys, beach and bath towels... Literally anything we could have needed was there for us! The beach was beautiful and we saw dolphins in the water!! The pools were great as well. All three pools, and the beach can be in walking distance, but we chose to drive. The restaurants on the resort were very good. Hooks has daily specials and a waitress that comes to the pool, which is right next door. The Sunset Grill has great food, indoor and outdoor seating, a tiki bar, and nightly entertainment. All in all I would definitely recommend this property and I will be staying here again in the future!

Beautiful Property and Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six adults and one child in town for a wedding. The property was the perfect size for us. The beds were comfortable; bathrooms were nicely outfitted with bath linens; and the kitchen had everything one would need. The entire property is in good shape and decorated nicely. The grounds has an easily accessible pool and the beach is a very short walk.

Communication with Julie was easy, and she was very responsive. I would not hesitate to stay here again and to highly recommend it to others.

Excellent property. Lots of space. Very nice area.

  • 5 of 5

We made the trip to Tampa with another couple and stayed in the townhouse for 4 days / 3 nights. Since there was only 4 of us, we had more space than we needed. We didn't spend a lot of time in the townhouse as we were on the go, but we did stop at the Sunset Grill and we did spend some time on the beach. The distance to the Sunset Grill and Tiki Bar was longer than we wanted to walk with the August heat (almost 1/2 mile), so we drove down there. It was not an inconvenience at all.

The house was well equipped with all of the necessities and even some of the little things that VRBO's don't always have, such as dish soap, coffee, condiments, laundry supplies, paper towel, etc. We shopped for some groceries, but didn't need much else.

I would highly recommend this property to others looking to stay in the Tampa area.
