Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this townhouse for the month of March 2015. The rental for us was wonderful. The townhouse is like living in a real home with all the little touches. It was completely move in ready. The townhouse has 2 bedrooms and one and a half bath. For us it was lots of room. We had visitors for two of the weeks and there were no problems with space.

Tina was an exceptional host and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a couple of small problems (microwave broke) and after an email to Tina, they were solved withing a day or so.

Little Harbour was lovely for us. If you want a busy vacation spot with lots of shopping and restaurants very close by, this may not suit you but the trade off is a more relaxed area with less traffic. All those things are available with a half to an hour drive to get to to St Pete's, Sarasota, and Tampa and there is lots there. to explore,

Lovely Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family of three young adults, my husband and I stayed in the townhome the week of Thanksgiving in order to share the holiday with my brother in Ruskin and other family members in the area. The location was great not only for visiting our family, but also for recreational outings. It was only a short drive to Tampa, St. Pete or Bradenton. We enjoyed visits to Fort De Soto, the De Soto monument and surrounding park and trails, and Bradenton's Coquina Beach. The townhome was clean and bright, and was beautifully set up with every convenience. The resort area had a lot to offer. We all came in one car, so my "kids" were without transportation. Not once did I hear, "I'm bored." When we older adults were enjoying some downtime, they were able to find things to do in the resort area without needing to drive anywhere. And....the weather was perfect! In summary, we had a lovely stay!

Our party of four, 2 couples, stayed here for the month of March 2015. This was our first time traveling to the Tampa Bay area and our first experience with VRBO. Lesa, the property owner, and the Little Harbor Resort staff were responsive to any question or concern we had during our stay. We were very pleased with our accommodations as were the family and friends who joined us during the month. With three bedrooms and three full baths, everyone was comfortable. The marina view balconies were especially delightful. We made frequent use of the resort's heated pool, hot tub, beach area, the pier and walked/biked by both marinas daily to watch the wildlife (manatees, dolphins, birds and fish). The thoughtfully fitted kitchen in the townhouse made meal preparation at home easily accomplished. The two on-site restaurants, Sunset Grill and Hook's Bar/Grill, made eating out a convenient option without having to drive. Nearby favorites included the Manatee Viewing Center, Yabor Grill, and Circles Restaurant. Golfing at Apollo Beach Golf Club was challenging and affordable. The strawberry sundaes (in season) at Goodsons Farm close to Sun City were a highlight as well. We made a number of day trips from Little Harbor to Bradenton, Sarasota, St Pete, Clearwater and Tampa. We are happy to report a wonderful VRBO experience with Lesa and Little Harbor, and look forward to a second visit!

Spring break

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this townhome. Absolutely everything was supplied that we might need. We have rented at other locations and needed to purchase supplies. The home owners were extremely easy to contact with quick responses. The home was clean and comfortable. The area had many amenities. We enjoyed the pools, fitness centers and evening walks along the marina. Views were spectacular. I would highly recommend this townhome for future renters.

We stayed in this condo for almost 3 weeks and it was more than we expected! Lesa and Tina are excellent and it was a pleasure dealing with them. The condo had everything you would need and of course Little Harbour is the best resort we have travelled to, it has 3 pools, hot tubs, restaurants, tennis courts, a pier and beach. The staff are great there too. We have been going to Little Harbour for the past 5 years and this condo was our favorite. We had a dolphins and manatees there constantly just outside our patio doors. Will be back again

Awesome Week!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful townhouse! It was very clean and had everything that we needed. Tina was great to work with and does alot to make her guest feel like they are at home. There was 5 of us (3 older boys) and we had plenty of room. The boys had a great time with all the activities to do at the resort. Would definitely come back again and would recommend this beautiful townhouse to anyone.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from our stay at Tina's Townhome... it was wonderful! Just as others before commented, it was super clean, had everything we needed for our family of 5 (two of them teenagers). We saw dolphins and sting rays from the back balconies each morning (8-9am) and late afternoon (3-4pm). We enjoyed the pools and beach (rented paddle boards and jet skis). We had fun gathering many little crabs in beautiful shells from the Bay (and then let them all go). The meals at the resort restaurants were terrific and all in all it was a very very relaxing stay for our whole family! Thank you for maintaining such wonderful accomodations! We had a great time!
