Harbour Island Reviews

3
Harbour Island is centrally located in downtown Tampa. I love living on the water, and easy walking distances to the downtown area. Then this is a good location for me. I attend Eckerd College campus in Tampa and St. Petersburg location. My apartment complex is conveniently located to both campuses.

An Island right next to the downtown area..what’s not to like? This place is great. If location is more important to you then the size of your home then this is the place for you. Thinking long term this area is booming in value .
Neighbors are rude and houses are tiny. Hard to get around with all the traffic. Moved out so I didn't have to live in the most liberal place one earth. Not recommended for families that are conservative.
