About Margaret

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 nice resort

  • 4 of 5

The resort and all the amenities were great! The facilities are perfect, the outdoor dining/bar was a highlight! Live music on the deck in the evening!! Absolutely a perfect way to wrap up a vacation day! This really is a dream resort in how it is set up! The pools are nice and have chairs and umbrellas for use.

My only hesitation with giving it 5 stars was the beach area.... the sand, chairs and umbrellas were perfect! It was a great set up and ideal for a vacationer! So nice to just walk to the beach and have a place to sit in the sun or shade. No need to bring your own chairs or umbrella. Towels are also provided. I didn't realize, however, that the water was very shallow and weedy. Some local people said the water isn't always safe for swimming since the whole Tampa Bay is shallow and the water gets very warm. There were people swimming, but if you're coming to this resort for swimming and boogie boarding, you will be disappointed. There are no waves. Our first day, the weeds were all over the beach and a crew was raking them up....they smelled pretty bad. (there had been a storm the day before.) There were still lots of weeds in the water and on the bottom even after cleanup. We spent one afternoon on this beach, then traveled to different beaches the next couple days (Manasota Beach-60 minutes away, to pick shark teeth-free parking and then St. Pete's Beach-40 minutes away-nice white sand) instead of using the beach at the resort. If we weren't into enjoying the water, this resort would have been 5 stars for us.

Very impressed, will be back soon!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in room 606 June 30, 2017-July 3, 2017. We had everything we needed. This was our first visit to Ruskin and we fell in love with this little beach town. The Inn at Little Harbor is almost all inclusive with the 3 pools, 2 restaurants, tennis courts, and other amenities. The only reason for 4/5 stars instead of 5/5 stars is the beach is over-run by sea grass and seaweed, but we expected this since the resort is on the bay. Apollo beach is a short 1/2 mile drive away but was closed due to bacteria, so we drove over to Madeira Beach. Fishing is great from the pier and from the seawall, especially at night! Warren was a sweetie and we are already looking forward to our next trip!
