Everything at the resort was fresh and new and beautifully kept up by T.K. The beach and porch lounges were comfy and new, the bathrooms had real fluffy bath mats, all the sheets fit the beds, and the well stocked kitchen had real salt and pepper shakers. Scott at reception was truly welcoming, and Sandy at the Wednesday towel exchange... More

We had a truly wonderful and relaxing experience in peace and tranquility. The beach and surrondings are beautiful. Cottages were nice and clean and the service was excellent. Planning to book for our next year trip.

This place is amazing and the customer service is superb!!! Where to begin... Scott, from the office, is adopted into our family. He is professional, yet kind, funny and a great human being. Ms. Sandy, "Thank you for maintaining our towels sparkling white. The cleanest in the business in my opinion!!!" The new manager, whose name I do not recall,... More

Great vacation spot if you're looking for a peaceful vacation. The sunsets on the gulf are magnificent. Stayed in a single bedroom unit and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The bathroom was huge with the kitchen, dinette and living room good sizes. Free wifi and two good size flat screens were just a few of the amenities. On... More

Little Gull is a special resort on a special island. Longboat offers a lot to the vacationer, and Little Gull has been consistently an outstanding resort to spend your time. Quaint, quiet, cottages, well kept and maintained. Each year you can see the upgrades that took place. Be back next year.

We go every March to escape the New England Winter, we love the location and the staff at Little Gull. We got the memo saying that Debbie was leaving which is a loss as she was a real asset.I'm sure that customer service, friendliness will continue and location will always be great.

Our first time at this delightful cottage resort, but not our last! Peaceful, quiet, secluded and close to lots of delicious restaurants! Cottage is well-maintained and stocked with everything you will need. Beds are very comfortable! All of the staff we had contact with were friendly and first rate! We stayed on the bay side and loved the surroundings. No... More

Quaint, quiet and absolutely lovely. There are only sixteen units that span from the bay to the gulf set up to make you feel isolated from the rest of the area. The unit had ample space with no shortcuts. This place has been around for some time, however, maintained to look as if it was just built. The beach was... More
