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.
Warren purchased this Studio in 2016
Why Warren 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!

"Laid Back/No Hassles Hidden Gem"
What a lovely little hidden treasure. Little Harbor is a quiet and quaint area of Ruskin, Florida. When you travel through Ruskin, it reminds one that there are places in Florida that are no so fast paced and that is what I found in that small town and especially at Little Harbor. The resort offered everything that I needed and a person could stay there for a week without having to leave the resort. The beach area was small and even though there were tons of people at the resort, I was never crowded on the beach or at the pool. (My first day on the beach from 10-2, I saw approximately 20 people sun bathing, walking, wading in the shallows, playing volleyball, or swimming. The most people I ever encountered in the two pools(there are three) that I visited saw approximately 5-10 people swimming or sunning. Hooks was available for lunches and poolside drinks and the staff were very hospitable. The food was served quickly and the food was good and hot. The Sunset Grill offered some really great shrimp dishes and I enjoyed their dinners a couple of evenings. They also offered karaoke and live music nightly.. I highly recommend this little gem to anyone who wants to get away for some much needed rest and quietness and I made a couple of really good friends while there that I am already in touch with. Margaret went out of her way to make sure that I had everything I needed as did Warren, her property management agent. Margaret's little condo was perfect for me, yet a family of four could stay here and be comfortable. The beds were amazing and I slept better in the one that I used than I had for a long time. The man that set up the beach chairs went out of his way to make one feel welcome as did the bartender at Sunset Grill and the two ladies at the front desk (one was from Puerto Rico and the other lady was an art student) went out of their way to answer any questions that I had and to promote the resort and the area. I strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a quiet "LAID BACK/NO HASSLES" vacation to take advantage of Margaret's condo offering. Even though it is in an older part of the resort, it is maintained and the staff is wonderful. I especially liked that the condo had tile throughout, so I did not feel quilty coming in from the beach and walking across the floor. It was very easy to clean and Margaret had provided all of the materials needed. So, if you need a quiet little place to get away from the fast paced world, see Miss Margaret!
Thank you so much for such a kind, well-written review. You put into words the way I always felt about Little Harbor and I am glad you feel the same. My door will always be open for you! Kind regards,
Beach is shallow, great for the kids to play!
We saw dolphins and sting rays in the bay! Great time.
Very nice place and nice people.
Everybody was very kind and every where you went people were ready to help you. The resort was very clean and comfortable. The beach was great. I would definitely come again.
Quiet with private beach and pools
Need to remove the janky light shelves at the head of the beds; they're a safety hazard. Also, need to keep kids out of the hot tub (especially babies.... to include those in diapers; sooooooo gross and scary for the sake of the babies). Load limit was posted at "6"; I counted 13; with all the kids. Security walked by and did nothing. My wife, I and another couple left in disgust; hoping nothing bad happened.
Thank you for your helpful review. The shelves were taken down. I was unaware of the condition. I am glad that you mentioned this to Warren. Glad to say, he took care of everything. I hope all else was good. I do agree with you about the hot tub... there should be an age requirement set by the resort and enforced! The condo was left in excellent condition, I thank you for that and welcome you back in the future.
A secluded getaway with many amenities
We enjoyed a lovely stay and would come back again. Everything was as presented in the description and the other reviews.
