I am currently a teacher and my husband is retired. I plan on retiring next year and look forward to spending some time with my grandson. We have 2 pugs, Maggie and Marley. They love people and are so friendly. Currently, we live in New York and enjoy our visits to Little Harbor.
Margaret purchased this Studio in 2016
Why Margaret chose Ruskin
We came down last year to Little Harbor and fell in love with the area and all its amenities. We decided to purchase a unit so we can come down any time and share with others. We talk about little Harbor as, "the hidden gem," to everyone.
What makes this Studio unique
Little Harbor has a private beach to spend the day just relaxing and having lunch at either one of the waterfront restaurants. There are sport courts and a workout room. If there are children, they can enjoy the playground area. With two heated pools and spa, there is something for everyone. I especially like taking morning walks around the resort. In a short drive you can spend hours just shopping, going to the beautiful public beaches, and enjoy the rides and thrills at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Amusement Park. At night we sit on the balcony, enjoy the views and unwind. So much to do and see when you stay at Little Harbor!

very pleasant experience
if your desire is to get away from the stresses of the hustle and bustles... This is the place for you. very welcoming resort community and staff.
Just got home and thinking about my next stay here already! My husband and I brought our 4 year old Grandson with us to see his Auntie and his newborn cousin. We had a blast! The resort has all you need for a great stay, white sand beach, tiki bar and restaurant on the beautiful bay, heated pool and jacuzzi overlooking the intracoastal waters. We watched the dolphins play as we enjoyed the pool with food and drink service! Our room was perfect for us, two queen sized beds, a nice balcony and even a professional grade hot plate and toaster oven which was perfect for making the family breakfast. Our room was very clean, well appointed and nicer than the pictures. The facility also offers a laundry room which was very handy staying with small children. We visited Sea World, Busch Gardens and the beautiful Anna Maria Island, all within a reasonable drive from the resort. Our host, Warren was readily available, just a phone call away, to answer questions and check in on us to ensure we arrived safely and had everything we needed. Definitely a "big bang for your buck". We absolutely intend to return.
I am thrilled you and your family enjoyed your stay in my unit at the resort. What a wonderful review you wrote and so accurate about all the amenities and sites to see. I am glad your trip was as pleasurable as my always is when I am at the unit. I agree, Warren is wonderful and most helpful!! Do return, you and your family will always be welcomed back with pleasure!!
Overall a nice, hidden resort
This was our first time staying at Little Harbor. It was just my girlfriend and l. We really enjoyed the resort and the room is exactly as you see it on the website. However, l do have a few complaints although, for the most part, they have nothing to do with Margaret or Warren, who are very accommodating and respond to any inquiries in a timely fashion. The mini fridge in the room is really, REALLY small. The laundry room by the pool could benefit from an upgrade as well. Lastly, we were supposed to get pool towels from the front desk, however every time we tried they didn't have any so l recommend packing your own. Of the two bars/restaraunts on the property (Hooks and Sunset Grill), Sunset Grill is WAY better and is aptly named. All in all, it was a peaceful getaway for my girlfriend and l and we would certainly stay again.
This unit was really comfortable for our 4 night stay for my sister and I. Two queen beds works out perfectly. Small unit had ample storage space for clothing. Patio was enjoyable in the morning for coffee and wine in the evening. Nice size tv and wife available. Walked over to the Tiki Bar for the evening sunsets which were beautiful. Lots of nice beaches within an hour drive. We did not use the kitchen except for coffee. Very small so would recommend eating out which worked for us. Couple of restaurants within walking distance. The only negative I would mention is the wall unit air conditioner is very loud and the room is a little warm. So if you require quiet to sleep I would recommend air plugs. Other than that we had a great time.
Hi Donna, thank you for your honest review. I looked into the problem with the air conditioner and the compressor broke down. As we speak I am having a HVAC repair person installing a new unit. Thanks for your warning. I wish you would have mentioned this problem to Warren so your stay would not have been so deafening. Again, thank you and please come back again.
What I was looking for
Room was comfortable and clean. Will do it again
