About Mary Yousif

We bought and furnished our townhome to be used as the vacation place for our family. Our kids and we plan to enjoy it when we can for part of the year and the remaining time we will offer to others to enjoy it too.

The home is furnished with the most luxurious furniture, electronics and kitchen accessories for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Mary Yousif purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Mary Yousif chose Florida Central West

From our first visit we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, the amazing sunsets, the variety of amenities and the proximity of the resort to the shopping centers, entertainment and golf courses.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the Caribbean landscape, the sandy private beach, the amazing sunsets, the restaurant with the live music entertainment, the facilities of the resort and its proximity to all major attractions in Florida.

The two bedroom townhouse was very comfortable and had all the comforts of home. The location was convenient and close to beach and shopping. The pools were nice and clean and the sunset grill located on the property was very good. The view of the canal off the deck was great. We will definitely visit again. Unit has a lot of steps.

Owner's Response: Thanks Brad for your nice review. It is also our pleasure when our guests are happy. The access to three different pools and hot tubs give our quests choices that can satisfy every need. The Sunset Grill with its excellent menu, the tropical beach tiki bar, the amazing sunsets and live music can provide enjoyable and memorable evenings year round. Given that our property is a town home and not a condominium in a big building there are a dozen steps to get to the first and second floors that provide excellent views of the water and mangrove forest. Thanks again for your comments. It will be our pleasure to have you back. Mary Yousif

Owner's Response: Thanks Lelia for your nice comments. I am glad that you and your family enjoyed our town home, the private beach and one of the three swimming pools which is also close to the water. I tend to agree that the sunsets are amazing and different every night depending on the clouds on the horizon. This is what we are looking forward every time we visit Little Harbor ourselves especially when we combine it with a drink at the tropical beach tiki bar at the Sunset Grill. Mary Yousif

Girls' Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect setting for a reunion trip with the girls! The house had everything we needed and was tucked away in a perfect setting. The condo was clean and the layout was perfect. We enjoyed spending our night cooking dinner and relaxing. Would definitely recommend!

Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

My mother & I savored each day of our month-long stay in this pristine town home tucked away in its extraordinary setting. Literally, the best of two worlds: the solitude of a private residence, with all the amenities of an exclusive beach resort. We took full advantage of the members only white sand beach & harbor pools. In the evenings, we'd gaze at the beautiful sunsets, sipping cocktails, while enjoying nightly live music at the beach front Tiki Bar. St Petersburg, Gulf Port, Sarasota & Bradenton are artistic & enriching communities close at hand - museums, street fairs & restaurants abound. Vincent, the property steward, is a true gem; who readily assumed the role of concierge. If you choose to vacation here, you won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thanks Linda for your lovely comments about our town home and the resort. I am glad that you and your mom enjoyed your stay at our place. I am also glad that you took advantage of all the amenities provided by the resort and visited the surrounding communities. With help from Vince, we take great care of our town home as it is our future retirement home. We like to keep it clean, organized and safe. You said it all. We would love to have you back next year. Thank you for staying in our town home and for writing a great review. Mary Yousif

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long Thanksgiving weekend together as a family in this beautiful property. It was very clean and had everything we absolutely needed. We felt comfortable in the townhome and appreciated the amenity locations of pools, beach & restaurants. We would recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet get-a-way.
