3 Bdrm Townhome with Harbor and Beach Views

Our beautiful townhome was purchased and newly furnished in 2012. It features all new furnishings, 4 terraces, 2 overlooking the harbor (where manatees and dolphins have been spotted swimming), 4 TVs, cable, internet, washer/dryer, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom has a king poster bed and en-suite bath, the 2nd bedroom has a queen bed with en-suite bath, and the 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and is located next to the main bath. The sofa pulls out into a comfortable queen size sleeper. We also have a queen size air mattress.

The townhome is in the Resort & Club at Little Harbor which is right on Tampa Bay between Tampa and Sarasota but away from the crowds.

The beach is just yards from our home. On the beachfront you can enjoy full service dining all day, the tiki bar with live entertainment, and the beautiful sunsets over Tampa Bay.

About Mark and 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 and Julie Campbell purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Mark and Julie Campbell chose Florida Central West

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, 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.

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.

The place is beautiful and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse and the property are beautiful. 2 pools and a private beach. Only downfall is not much to do in the Ruskin area, but short drive to apollo beach and 45 min to 1hr 10 min drive to St. Petersburg and Clearwater.

Nice and cozy

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice! There was not much around in town but the house was great for what you typically use a house for on vacation. It was a great central point to stay 20 minutes from St Pete and about an hour from Clearwater and Siesta Key. The only minus for this location would be the beach, a lot of sea grass in the bay.. But the house was great.

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family members and I had an awesome vacation at our Little Harbor Townhome. We were there for one week. There were 7 individuals in the house, 3 of which were children, and we had more than enough space. When we arrived, the townhouse was very clean and tidy. It was truly a " Home away from home". We had a great experience!!!
