About Susan Cannata

We grew up in Tampa. Moved to Houston to go to law school. We always wanted a place to come back to and now we have it. The fact that we can do as much or as little as we want really appeals to us.

Susan Cannata purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Susan Cannata chose Florida Central West

We decorated and furnished this property the way we like to have things done when we travel. It has a beach vibe and is extremely comfortable.

What makes this townhome unique

This complex is centrally located to many activities in and around Tampa. It truly is a hidden treasure.

The awesome sunsets are what really sold us on Little Harbor. Also the fact you don't have to leave the complex unless you want to is great.

Amazing unit and resort

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this unit from Sept to the end of Oct 2016 with my husband and 2 kids, 6 & 8. The unit is beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything you could need (another pot and pan would be useful). The resort is well maintained and the use of all 3 pools was great for busy weekends and variety. We loved watching the manatees in the backyard and the Gulf views from every room. I would highly recommend this unit for families or couples getting away as each bedroom has it's own private bathroom and balcony. Fitness room is well equipped with towels and water. The fishing pier off the resort is the best for local fishing and we caught quite a variety of fish. The Sunset Grill has live music most nights and always an amazing view of the sunset. The internet however, was very slow and unreliable. I understand this is in the process of getting corrected.

Overall, great clean unit and lots of little touches added from the owner to make our stay stress free and very enjoyable. Thank you Susan!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I called this property home for 7 days. It was very accommodating, clean, and well kept. We were greeted with water views of Tampa Bay or the marina from each balcony. We also enjoyed watching a family of manatees play in the canal behind the property while sitting on the balcony. The property was a short walk to the pool and beach area along with the restaurant and tiki bar that had live entertainment and perfect views of the sunset. The owner was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to emails. We will definitely stay here again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property. It was spacious and clean. The beds were so comfy, I slept like a baby! I have never found that at even the nicest hotel chains. Bed linens were clean and of great quality. The entire community was well kept and had fabulous amenities.

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I am always apprehensive about taking my family to a place I have never seen, especially for a week long family vacation a long way from home. No need for apprehension with this place! It was exactly as advertised. The area is very convenient to the finest beaches in America and the entertainment of Tampa/St. Pete. Little Harbor is great even without those other things. The food at Hooks and at the Tiki Lounge/Restaurant was great and very reasonably priced. The pool and hot tub were clean and inviting, and the tennis courts and playground were exactly what we hoped for. The pier near the tiki hut made for a quiet and relaxing evening away from the fun of live music at the lounge. It's close enough to enjoy the music but far enough away to enjoy the lapping of the waves on the shore. I couldn't have hoped for more and definitely will return!

Paradise at the Point, Little Harbor, Ruskin, Florida

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from our second stay at this lovely town home at Little Harbor. Last year we were pleased to find that it was very comfortable and well suited to families or couples. Each adult or couple had a private bedroom and bath, and the kitchen was well equipped (the ice maker in the refrigerator and the Keurig coffee maker were well utilized). Each bedroom had a flat screen television, and plenty of natural light with sliding doors leading to a private lanai. The living room had a large flat screen television, and a larger lanai overlooking an inlet where manatees lingered each afternoon. Little Harbor is a beautiful resort, with three swimming pools, a small beach, restaurants, a playground and tennis courts. We had access to all of the facilities, which was a bonus with renting this suite (many of the other owners do not provide this). We were so pleased with this suite and its facilities that we returned for a second trip within less than a year. We expect to return to Ruskin again, and would not hesitate to stay here. Susan, the owner, was very prompt in answering all of our questions and was very accommodating. I would recommend this suite to anyone who was planning a trip to the Tampa area. It is conveniently located right on Tampa Bay, yet has easy access to the freeway and highways that will take you to any of the many attractions of the Tampa area.
