Hey Mama's! It's May 1st so it's time to start our Month of Me Time!! I am so excited for this! A full month of self-care, girl time, and this week - how about a little beach time!?!? Uhh....Yes please!
Two weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to spend a few days in Florida! I know what you're thinking - Orlando, Miami, Disney, Crowds, Tourists... NO! Not my kinda of vacay! While I was just outside of Tampa, I have seriously found a little piece of paradise, tucked away from all the craziness, that comes with "touristing" in the Sunshine State!
So where is this slice of Heaven? It's called Harborside Suites at Little Harbor, in Ruskin, Florida. Google it! No just kidding, click---->Here and I'll take you right there!
Mama's, I'm not kidding when I say this is the ultimate relaxing, grounding, soul searching place to be! I'm talking a glass of wine on the balcony watching a gorgeous sunset over Tampa Bay (you truly haven't seen a real sunset until you've seen this), dolphins and manatee's playing in the marina below, a private beach onsite, Tiki Bar, three pools, playground, tennis courts, 2 restaurants...and even private, in room massages available!
Hello?? Time for a beach getaway - ASAP! Still not convinced? Check out this slideshow of the resort and my time there!
First, the rooms are almost as spectacular as that view from the balcony! The colors, as we walked in, were fresh, coastal and so relaxing! Each room is decorated with the cutest coastal pieces, making sure you know you are definitely on beach time now! The beds, furniture and other room amenities are comfortable, convenient and include everything you need to live from your own little apartment for your entire stay!
As you start to explore the resort, you'll find the private beach - it is just the right size, not to crowded and right next to the resorts Sunset Grill Restaurant! Bathrooms and an outdoor shower are conveniently located next to the beach and chairs/umbrellas are included (first come, first serve basis) for your enjoyment!
Speaking of the Sunset Grill...one word, delicious! The menu speaks to any type of food your crew might be craving. You can get anything from wings, burgers, seafood, even a steak! We've tried several different items and have not been disappointed. The atmosphere here is amazing! Not only is there live music on the very large patio, overlooking the bay, but it's attached to the Tiki Bar!! Mama, you can sit and relax here for hours! Trust me!!
The resort also has another restaurant, Hooks, just up the road. Again, delicious! You can take the kids, girlfriends, or your guy to eat and no one will go away hungry! There is seriously the perfect type of food for any appetite!
As for recreation, Harborside Suites at Little Harbor, has a little bit of everything! How about three swimming pools (in addition to the beach), tennis courts, water rentals, even a playground for the little people! Not to mention, you're right on the marina where you can take a charter out for a day of fishing! It doesn't get any better than this!
Seriously, did you see that sunset? Just in case you missed it - let me show you that one more time...
Yeah - that right there is worth the plane ticket all by itself!
And just think, Mama - what an amazing trip with the kiddos this would be? All the memories you can make in just one weekend! How about a girls trip? Just you and your best girlies hanging on the beach, getting drinks, with little umbrellas, at the Tiki Bar? Amazing! Or even better, how about a romantic, weekend away with your guy? Just the two of you, relaxing and reconnecting?
You need this, Mama! Make yourself a priority this summer. Spend some time with whoever you choose (or even just by yourself), check out a new place, relax, and get your Mama Mojo back! And if the beach is your kind of thing Harborside Suites at Little Harbor is the perfect place for you and/or the whole family!
