The Beach - SUNRISE over looking marina and on canal!
average rating of 4.92 based on 25 reviews

Elaine was wonderful to work with and provides the extras to make her condo a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Little Harbor is a wonderful place to stay for a relaxing getaway. The resort itself has everything you need. My favorite place is the pool overlooking the bay. Bring your lunch or order the best grouper sandwich ever from the poolside grill. I have been coming here for five years and always recognize the friendly faces.

The condo itself is full of the comforts of home. The beds are comfortable, the towels are nice, and the kitchen is well stocked for dinners in. Elaine has taken great care in decorating the condo with a cute beach theme. You can listen to the birds chirping and fish jumping on the patio. You can also watch the sunrise each morning.

Thanks, Elaine, for sharing your home for a much needed break. I hope to be your guest again soon.

Beautiful views, relaxing community and great host!

We had Wonderful and relaxing stay the entire month of February. We even were fortunate to observe dolphins visiting the canal (hint: look near the sea wall on the opposite side of canal-they like to bring their young there to teach them to catch food). The Unit was really clean and tastefully decorated. It is well equipped, things clearly labeled and the owner has skillfully thought of your every need (even sewing and first aide kits!!). Finally Elaine was very welcoming and quick to respond to any of our questions. The only downside are the stairs —-which my mother disliked. However I enjoyed them -putting more onto my Fitbit! At the end of the month I could tell they’d made a difference in my conditioning. Nice to have a vacation and come back heathier than when you arrived!!

This is a great place to use as a home base to venture off around and see the sights that the area has to offer.
